Easter services of a special nature at the Congregational church Sunday. There will be preaching in the Free Methodist church every Sunday evening. Otto Kadolph and Delia Brooks, John Hosier and Emma Yazel are licensed to wed. J. M, Cowan will bufld another fine house east of the one he is putting up for J. W. Hay. C. B. Hutchlns says that we haven't had a better spring for farmers since six years ago. P. T. Tanner of Greenfield, Mo., writes: "We can't keep house without the U. D. M." The work of refitting the Heise block is going on rapidly. The new stairway will be put in at once. In Bancroft the residents raised $400 and the city gives $150 towards putting water mains along a street. The ladies' reading room association is still alive and .will meet with Mrs. Hamilton Friday at 3 o'clock. LuVerne is to have a big Methodist meeting tomorrow afternoon, preachers from all around gathering in. The Grange store moves back to its old stand this week. A new stock of goods will be in the new store. "Keep of the grass" means something now on the court yard. Mat. is authorized to arrest trespassers. Recorder Randall says that he can find no county which pays as small clerk hire in his office as Kossuth does. The opera house should be crowded for the high school contest. We want to send a medal winner to Cedar Falls. Mr. Lund hears nothing from the state board of health about permitting the shipment of his cattle to Chicago. It is bread and water or work for such prisoners as cannot get a certificate of ill health from " hereafter. )r." Samson, The young people's club have out Invitations for a dance on Easter Monday, April 15, Sterzbach & Cady's orchestra. A. H. Paine says that good hay has averaged the past winter $5 to $5.25 a ton loose. The wild hay crop is one of the big sources of revenue. J. J. Wilson's announcement of lots for sale in the old college grounds recalls early history. The lots ought to have extra value on account of associations. A. F. Dailey is still in charge of the water works, no new man having yet been secured by the city council. He is also city marshal, the mayor having appointed him. Lawyer Cloud will get to housekeeping in the W. W. Wheeler house north of Mrs. Molntyre's, about May 1. Mri Wheeler was here Monday and is having it refitted. Col. Spencer says that while Sexton has no boom, it is having a steady .growth. Birt Masten has bought a lot and will put up a good hotel. An opera house should follow. The water works manager at Emmetsburg gets $35 a month for attending the pumps seven hours a day, This is what he tells someone who talked with him last week. The best rain the county has had in a long time began Saturday and continued until Monday. The rainfall was not heavy, but it all went to fill a long felt want, and none got away. Judge Quarton will be asked Friday by Attorney Cloud to order the assignee of the Geo, Frink stock to sell for the benefit of the creditors. It is not known whether this will be resisted or not, Dr. Paul has decided to accept the allowance the board made him on his billfor attending the Vogle family, He gets $170 on a claim of $280, The county will now try and get it out of Palo Alto. The Milwaukee company have set' A Horse Knows the Difference bf twees good and bad wsgon grease, witt lave tied tbe cases bfought at Whlttemore W the relatives of Kobefi, tbe man killed by tbe show plotf some years ago. We learn that 1500 was the amount paid, Joseph Elvidge and Miss Stelln. Peck are name '-on tbe marriage license reccr-d. The young people are two of Burl's most estimable residents, and they will have a host of good Wishes as they start out,. Senator Funk and J. E. Jenkins met in Emmetsburg Saturday and made up a programme for the summer editorial meeting. Tttfi tlPPEtt DBS MoltfMs man was to have assisted but Was detained in Algona. Hon. E. D. Chassell of LeMara was in town Saturday looking up blank book work. He is to be the senator f rom his district in the coming legislature if rumor is correct. The state will hot have a better one, Chas, Cohenour is city clerk and also water rent collector. The council pay him $100 for office rent and services, which is not ohoUgh. He should have that for collecting the water rent alone, The item from the Fort Dodge Messenger last week about Ryan's "doubl* ing up" affected our compositor and he doubled up Algona's population chang* ing 2,469 to 4,469. Algona only claims what belongs to her. Geo. E. Clarke started for Washington Monday, his big land case in the United States supreme court coming on this week. He and Judge Norrts of Minneapolis represent the interests of the Milwaukee company. Supt. Sabln says that two weeks from Friday, April 26, is the day to set trees. Kossuth ought to celebrate arbor day this year and every year for a long time to come. Our bare school grounds are not a good advertisement. DuHng the'ifijst th'.ree' months of this year 1820 instruments nav'e'been filed for record in Kossuth county while only 975 were filed in Webster county in the same time. What county can beat Kossuth when it comes to doing business. Lu Verne came out ahead in tbe debate at Livermore and tbe currency question was decided to be a more vital issue than the tariff. The next de- Date Is to be held at Lu Verne. Each town has three speakers. Algona will hallenge the winner. Frank Nicoulin is getting to bo quite i bidder on mail routes. The Wash- ngton reports yesterday contained the 'ollowing: The postoflice department ias awarded the contract for carrying mail from Randolph to Tabor to Frank Nicoulin at his bid of $71. The suit of Jos. Thompson against the Milwaukee company comes on again at Fort Dodge in June. The case in the state court brought by his ion is likely to be postponed until the Fort Dodge case is settled. Last time the jury could not agree. The action of the county board in endorsing the grand jury's report on the jail practically settles the question of keeping prisoners in it. Kossuth will have to follow Clay county in sending jail birds to Mason City until a jail is built or more money is spent in the old one. Mr. and Mrs. A. A. Brunson came From California yesterday morning. They have had a pleasant visit and are jlad to get back. Mr. Brunson says that while California is a beautiful place for a visit, Koaeuth county is a beautiful place for a home, and that about hits it. Nils Erickson has a situation in Des Moines. The Capital says: N. L. Erickson, a well known pharmacist of Algona, has accepted a position with E. I. Whitney of 328 East Fifth street. Mr. Erickson ranks high in his profession, and conies to Des Moines with best of credentials. The council as a board of equalization raised a number of assessments and lowered some, None of the changes were very great and therefore the list is not of much public interest unless the remainder of the assessments for the town should! also be published. The board spent three days in equalizing. Many old timers in Algona remember Frank Moon. He left as a Free Methodist preacher but is now located at Boy den in Sioux county as a stone mason. He has been having great misfortune in his family, his wife proving unfaithful, and a divorce suit is pending. Three little children are theirs. Who doubts that the one mill township tax expended by the county board for grading at the prices the contract has been let for this year will not do more than two or three mills of the township tax has been doing? Grading at 7i cents and less a yard means that lots of dirt will be moved for a little money Marshal Dailey was obliged to take Bill DeLalr to the mayor Saturday and have him mulcted $10 and costs, Mayor Haggard performing his judicial duties in a becoming manner. DeLair was drunk and raised a disturbance in the Boals restaurant, and Mr. Boals threw him out on the side walk. He then became so disorderly that he had to be taken in. Yesterday's Register contained news of interest: A Des Moines architect is making plans for a house for Congressman Dolliver at Fort Dodge. The news is of interest in view of the fact that tbe Tenth district congressman has thus far been content with bachelor quarters, His Des Moines friends are of the opinion that the pew bouse pre sages the coming: of the square eiv velopes of .invitation, A letter from W. H. Inghatn receivec yesterday indicates that he will be in Algoaa tbe last of this week or the first of next. Speaking of tbe terrible destruction of fruit by tbe t roet he writes; "There are no oranges for sale except those from California and there will he no pine apples or oocpanuts this season, Florida is a blank »t preset as to products, Our graashoppej plague was nothing as compared wit? the damage here," Ti»e Courier states that Ambrose A CftU will wae, & lister for corn planting M 8 M n Av.%M^M?yJ^ tt^ "' this -..,. ,,,- i_-"i" "r—fif-in i—f " •fc—r-r* -ft -crr'-i-,—. .

Carson, firie & Co. of Chicago have inter vened as against the eleven attaching credi- ,ors, Sullivan & McMahon acting for them. They have a claim of $2,100 ivhlch was left out in the cold and this s an attempt to get id on the ground floor. At present Cloud represents the Cfeditors, Clarke & Cohenour represent Trink, and Sullivan & McMahon this ,hird party, It will be a lively muddle or the court. The Iowa crop reports by tbe state bureau begin this week, The first one opens hopefully as follows: " The season has opened about as early as in the average of the past ten years. The temperature has been about normal since the middle of March, with less ,han the seasonable amount of precipi- iation during that month. The soil ias never been in better condition for )lowihg and seeding, and the work is jenerally at an advanced stage." The court yard pump, visible inonu* mentof the good old reliable fresh and sparkling surface fountain, which ias slaked the parched throats of the ,own loafers, lemonade and soda water drinkers, and competed on even terms with the 1,000 foot city well, is locked up nights now. Mat. found that the >eople were in the quiet shades of ivening hauling off the water for lorses, etc., and decided that it was lesigned for a more commendable purpose, especially as the nightly Irains were leaving the well about dry laytimes. E. H. Clarke has a queer legal predicament confronting him. He went ,o Lu Verne last week and tried a case jefore 'Squire Fechner, wherein his ilient sued one Goodwin for $8.60. The ustice took time to consider, but he- ore Mr. Clarke left, adjudged him to DO in the right of it and entered up and igned the judgment. Now Mr. Harke's client writes to him that udge Fechner has reconsidered, wiped ut his first entry, and awarded the defendant a decree. Mr. Clarke wants he court records made intact or will ask the district court to consider why an erasure has been made in them. Arthur Ward of Wesley was in town yesterday. In reply to a question about he report published some weeks ago to he effect that he had " kidnapped" his boy at Shellrock he said that he went 0 get his boy, who was left in his 'barge by the court, but who had run away to his mother, and with another man had brought the boy to a station line miles away where they were to ake the train. Before they got off, however, two men overtook them and hovedi a revolver under their noses whereupon the other man weakened he had to let the boy go. The boy i» still with his mother at Shell- 'ock. Besides the Algona physicians Drs. jacy and Bliss of Lu Verne, Hill and Cinney of Wesley, Beane and Peters of Burt, Felling and Paul of Whittemore were present at the county medical meeting yesterday. Dr. Bowen was admitted as a member of the associa- ion and Lu Verne was chosen as the meeting place in July. Medical matters were discussed and a bill of Dr. Beane for a county patient was passed uponi Dr. Felling presented one but it was not in dua form. The ession was-a most interesting one and we are agaiin called upon to remark ihat the medical men are a good look- ng and genial fraternity. Auditor Calkins* is getting ready for ,he new jury drawing. .He has to have three steel boxes-and. a specially printed list in which tbe name of every able bodied man in the county appears on a separate slip. These slips are all )laced in one bo».. At the proper time 1 jury is drawn by chance, and the ihps so drawn are- put in the second )ox. When their jury duty is over .he slips are put in the third box and ocked up until the first box is exhausted. Then the boxes are turned around and tbe process gone through with again. No man can get out of ury duty., and no more jurors will be sailed from the court- room. Talesmen will be drawn by lot. The supreme court knocked the county out Monday in a curious suit. Callanan & Savery claimed to have discovered not long ago that 20 years before they had paid $6,83 taxes through a mistake of the treasurer that they did not owe. They sued for the amount and the county defended. Judge Cartr gave them a judgment for tbe amount with interest for the time, and also granted a certificate on whicl: the questioa of the statute of limitations could be passed on by the supreme court. Attorneys Geo, E, Clarke and J. C. Raymond argued it, but the county loses: again. It was a question of principle on both sides as the amount involved is insignificant. For Sale.
