SCOTT, M. James Taylor is sick, confined to his bed. J. B. Wllley is planning on a now house. One of the bridges across Union slough has burned out. Mrs, L. J. Bice is recovering from a severe attack of lung fever. A boy has arrived at "Tug" Wilson's home and all are happy. The social union hns an excellent programme for Friday evening. E. A. Frice has bought the Fred. Paine house and has already moved into it. Mrs, Rev. Davidson has been seriously ill, threatened with pneumonia. She is getting better. The Elmore Eye says that Mrs. A. M. Kelly of Algona will open a millinery store at that place. B..Y. P. U. will give a social at Mrs. Henry Winkie's, Monday evening, April 8. A cordial invitation to all. Algona is to have a new cigar factory. Jack Schu has quit the Waterhouse factory and will soon open for himself. The city council meetings are likely to be entertaining enough to warrant the members In foregoing their salaries. Miss Gertrude Clarke started for Ipswich, South Dakota, Monday. She goes out to look after her land Interests in that section. The county medical association meets at Dr. Garfleld's office next Tuesday at 10:30 o'clock. It is to discuss some important questions. H. J. Winkle has bought a building at Waukon and will go at once to open a new hardware store. He paid $5,000 for a two-story brick. The rain Sunday and the snow Monday give the grain as good a start as tt has ever had in this county. This will be the premium season. Miss Nelton, who has been visiting at Mrs. Geo. Siinpkins' for the past two weeks returned to her home at Madison, Wis., this morning. A big delegation of Bancroftites were down'yesterday to get a road graded east of that flourishing city. S. Mayne and Thos. Sherman beaded the forces. The State Register says that Miss Nettie Herrick, who taught several terms in the Algona schools, Is now principal of the Winterset high school. Rev. Zartman of Sioux City will lecture at the Congregational church tonight on "Good Citizenship," under auspices of Y. P. S. C. E.. Free. Come. Will Lacey has bought Henry Winkie's cozy home near A. H. Paine's. It will bo a pleasant place for him but he will be lonesome in it all alone. The city council after adjusting each other and themselves have been adjusting assessments. No radical changes have been made in Assessor Lamson's estimates. J. J. Valentine goes to Minneapolis to join his brother in a bakery, He is a genial and energetic business man. His partner takes the Phoenix house at Bancroft. Miss Dell McCall, who was taken with the grip while in Chicago, is home and Miss Matson with her. She was quite sick and Miss Matson went in to care for her. S. S. Stebbins, the retiring street commissioner, goes out of office with the record, we believe, of having done more good street grading than any man the city has yet had, Frank Nicoulin's boys found two little rabbits and put them with the old cat and her litter of kittens. The old cat don't know one from the other and the rabbits get their share. Deputy Brunson returned from Wesley Monday, where he has been in charge of the Geo, Friqk store. Mr, Frink's matters are not yet settled up, and the creditors bold the stock. Referring to Rev, Finnell, the Lu- Verne News says: "Our 'cowboy QetUp.' Don't espcc^ypw »ori»« to bwy tmtil ft poorly giwed, tb« wow h<? the faster bott bpiac w>4 wwzon pfeaChet 1 ' Is getting it frofiH all sides— ftftd fFoffi what we cafi leafrfi is ftot tfet- Mhg it half as hafd &S he deserves." Gftrdnef Cdwleft and 0. fi. Matsoh are building & house and barn on a fafrm they own fieafr AfmStfong. Mr. MatsoB bow has an interest, in two houses, but still refits them to others. Eight applicants at Stipt. feed's examination last week had to go home because they were uhdef 18 years of age, For once in their lives the young ladies Were willing to be older and to admit it. If we had guessed that Bro. Starr had anything to do with the hew carpet in the Congregational church) we should have known that it would be put on the table or anywhere but on the floor. Mel 2a? Haggard and C. B. Matson are oft for Missouri. Metzar will go to Texas and visit Fred. Bartlett and also visit ail uncle in Louisiatm, During his absence Lieut. Chubb has command of Company F. Clerk Grose after getting his lot and plans for a flue new house bought the O'Neill home in the west part of town and will not build. Mr. and Mrs. O'Neill go to Missouri where he has business interests. Frank gets a good home. B. F. Rood has traded the Moffatt home in Algona to E. Wright of Cresco for his farm. The house and lots were put in at $3,500 and the farm at $31 an acre. Mr. Wright will come to town to live and be welcomed, and will have a good home. Some people think that lead shot are a cure for boils, constipation, etc. Dr. Kenefick had a case last week where an old gentleman had swallowed a handful, and was nearly dead from lead poisoning. Lead is an active poison in any form. Geo. E. Clarke was re-elected president of the new school board and has appointed bis committees as follows: On teachers, Quarton, Blossom and Butler; on finance, Gilmore and Blossom; on school supplies, Blossom and Butler; on coal, Haggard; on depot school, Blossom. Bancroft has a fire company. Geo. F. Holloway, E. C. Anderson, Merrit Turner, and Thos. Sherman are some who are to run the hose curt. We notice also that Editor Laid ley is one of the running team. Algona should challenge to a race. We will match the Register man. A re-rating in the postofflce salaries will add about $100 to J. W. Hinchon's salary after July. It seems Algona has gone up a peg on account of increased business. This gives Bro. Hinchon $1,800 besides fees, and his office rent and clerk hire remain as before. The Alffona office did a $6,012 business the past year. Barnet De vine's second son was dragging his shot gun up the river bank after him last Wednesday, holding it by the barrel, when something caught the triggers and both barrels were fired. His left hand was in line and was cut to pieces. He was able to walk to the barn, and was then taken to Livermore, where he was attended to. Drs. Pride and Kenefick caught that dog they were experimenting on, and although they finally lost the Murphy button, they discovered that it would hold a broken or cut intestine together until the wound had healed. They cut a piece out and the two ends grew together as well as ever. People are often injured in the intestines and it is now a common operation to cut out a piece and grow the ends together. All old settlers of the county will learn with regret that Mrs. O. Minkler is to be taken to the asylum at Independence today. She has been getting gradually deranged for six months, her hobby being that her relatives are all going to die, and that if the house should burn up with them it would be better. She is 56 years of age and was the daughter of Wm. Connell, the first settler on the townsite of Bancroft. The grove in that town was set out by Connell, who located in 1866. Friday was the hottest day in 'March ever recorded. C. D, Pettibone, who keeps the official record, says the mercury reached 87, and that the average for 24 hours was 65 degrees. Last year one March day reached 74 degrees. The papers all over a strip 200 miles wide state that no such day is reported in any record, It was like summer, the doors and windows were all open, and the sun was uncomfortable. It is needless to add that March recovered from this unusual outburst and went out like herself in cold and snow. Money, I have unlimited money to loan on long or short time, B. W, HAGGARD.
