A good attendance will be enrolled during the week. Mat. has taken down "Please" keep off the grass, and now "$1 fine" is what stares trespassers in the face. Frank Lull has been considering a proposition to buy a restaurant in Britt, but has concluded to not leave Algona. Henry Simkins is on the streets and his hand is healing rapidly. He loses the two middle fingers of his left hand. Mrs. Prof. Lilly has opened her kinder garten school with a dozen pupils. Such a school ought to be well patronized. Dr, McCoy has some curious stamps for the collectors. A nephew is located in Auckland, New Zealand, and writes quite often. Erick Strohm has a new house well under way south of the Swedish Lutheran parsonage. It will be a comfortable home. Fred. Koepka offered $850 for a business lot in Burt, and the owner is in no hurry to sell. There are no flies on Burt this year. Supt. Reed has secured pledges of attendance sufficient to arrest the threatened closing, of two schools in Portland township. John B. Pankuk and Lena Schrader, W. E. Millard and M. J. Drake, Chester J. Button and Emma Hodges are licensed to wed. Fred. Waterhouse says that his future business plans are not decided on. Schu & Hudson have taken possession of the cigar factory. The Grand Army post has sent $25 to the Nebraska Grand Army relief committee to be used for the needy veterans in that state. Geo. E. Clarke's case at Washington was set for Monday. This is Mr. Clarke's first appearance before the United States supreme court. Two men from Rochelle, 111., were here last week talking about putting in a steam laundry. Algona is a good point for such an institution. The Bancroft Register is 13 years old. It began with Bancroft and it is keeping pace with the town. The Register is a good newspaper. A beautiful flowering cactus was put in the postofflce window by J. J. Wilson yesterday. It is as rich and radiant as though in its native California atmosphere. The foundation is in for J. B. Willey's new house, which stands west of F. C. Willson's. Across the street M. B. Cbapin has just completed a big addition to his fine home. The sale on E. Wright's farm in Cresco was one of the biggest D. A. Haggard has yet held. The stock brought big prices, and the mayor auctioned with his usual energy. Albert Reed's new house has a foundation completed and it is to be a very attractive structure. It will be some like J, D. Shadle's home on Call street, and will be 26 by 43 feet on the ground. Talk about brick buildings between the Robinson and Chrisohilles stores is current. No definite plans are announced, but it is more than probable that three if not four fine brick fronts will go in. Chas, Jeanson, the young man whose leg was broken last fall while hauling rook, is able to be out, His leg is an inch shorter than the other, which makes his accident a pretty serious matter for him. C. W. Sohryver and J. W, Andrews have secured an injunction'against the Aultman threshing mucblne company to atop them from selling a machine under a mortgage, They say the machine is not as warranted. Frank Winkel is trying to make some beach trees live, and has given two to A. L, Seeley, who will give them a trial. C, E, Heise is to try chestnuts this year also. Both are handsome trees if they will stand the climate, The opera house should be crowded for the Ingttlls lecture next week Friday evening. Farmers adjacent to Algona should not mjss hearing n, great prator and a student of the problems that are now forcing to the front for discussion, Burt expects to take §0 seats for the Jngalls lecture. Every other town in the county ought to be represented, for Jngalls costs as much as any entertain- roent yet given in the opera house, excepting always, of course, "Qlorlana," the joy forever* Surveyor TellJer w^s up to Burt Sat- UFday looking the CQrijBr p f the block preparatory to staking i>m the f tUrns f»r *w big briek block, building if & sursgq frow present peamocea aafl wju be as jjand^me tt8 Keep your eye on this space.

The acreage of stnall grain, corn, and potatoes will be tna- terially increased, compared with the last three seasons. Word comes that J. B. Emmingef's daughter recently fell from a street car in Omaha, and had one leg smashed be* low the knee so that amputation was at one time thought necessary. Later re' port says there is an even chance for her foot to be saved. At a meeting of the Athenian society of the normal school last Wednesday the following officers were elected! President, M. J. Jones; vice president; NettieEdmonds; treasurer, Ada Smith, secretary, Francis Parley; Will Hunt and R. J. Wilson, ushers. LuVerne and Livermore debated again Friday evening at the former place on the question, "Circumstances have more to do with a man's success in life than his ability." LuVerne advocated circumstance and Livermore ability. We have not learned how they came out. Jos. Thompson was carrying a fancy carved cane on the street Saturday which he has whittled out the past winter from a willow stick. He says he has several others he has made merely as a pastime. This one looked like a Florida stick with an alligator, etc., carved on it. What advertising in THE UPPER DES MOINES will do is illustrated by C. J. Dutton, whose store In Irvington is doing a big business. He has built up a fine trade and now gets one of Irvington's most attractive young ladies for a wife. THE UPPER DES MOINES congratulates the happy couple. Jack Schu says that as soon as the revenue collector accepts the bonds the new firm will open the cigar factory with new stock, new brands of cigars, and make several other changes. Mr. Hudson is on the road now, F. W. Waterhouse making one trip with him to introduce him to the trade. Some boys tied bailing wire to the trees across the school house walk Saturday evening, and Dr. McCoy barely escaped a heavy fall. It is said that this is a standing trick in town and that with string and wire several walks have been fixed. The boys are breeding skinned shins on their own legs if they but know it. C. B. Matson likes the Missouri country so well where he was that he will go again next month and will probably remain some time and open an office. While down this time he sold a farm there and got an $80 commission, which paid all hie expenses and left him a fair halance. He is working in the section about 100 miles south of St. Louis. Elmer Slagle passed examination on North Dakota postofflces last week, making 100 per cent, and throwing 600 cards in the practice case in 11 minutes. He also made 100 per cent, on connections and other questions connected with the examination. He is one of the number one mail carriers, besides being a writer of growing ability, as THE UPPER DES MOINES readers may know. Old-time friends of Dr. Geo. W. Ingham will be interested in learning of his marriage, which occurs today in Olympia, Wash., where he is located. He has succeeded beyond expectations in his profession and is fairly established on the coast. It was his intention to come east for a wedding trip, but on account of the uncertain weather here at this season he decided to postpone coming until later. Wra, Hedge brought in seven little Fenton wolves Monday and the auditor and Mat, found that wolves have as many lives as cats, to say the leastof it. They attempted to drown them, but water seemed to be their native element, After trying all sorts of expedients Mat. proposed building a big fire in the furnace and putting them in, but the suggestion was enough and thoy departed this life without further remonstrance. The Diinlap boys don't care whether lvpr la remonetized or not. They out 4,000 acres of bay last summer aod cli Mired an even $2,50 an acre» They got 8,200 tons of hay and sold it all at a big price,. They have sold all their Innd and Barney has gone to Des Moines, where he will await opportunities, while Andy will remain in Ledyard and attend to politics and in- cldnntHlly do business, They have irmdu a fortune in the Kossuth boom, The discovery of a curious mistake its la Mm width of State street leaves A. Wolf's liovl at the Northwestern depot tiDout four feet out in that thoroughfare, J, M, Cowan's pew building occasioned the investigation and ihe result is the removal of Ww, K.

Chas, E. ittce, & younger brother of D< Bice and Mrs. C, A. ingham, has beetl judge in Wtlkesbarre, Pa., for 20 years and is now a candidate for election to the appellate court, The Wilkesbarre Evening Leader says: "We who meet him every day do not seem fully to realize the fact, but Charles E. Bice is one of the remark' able men of his time, especially in the line of labor in which his own in* clinations and the decrees of fate have located him. He is an ideal judge. We can think of no single qualtflca- tion for the part in which he is lack* ing." The Wilkesbarre Record says: "There is not another jurist in Pennsylvania so thoroughly equipped in every particular for that exalted position as the president judge of this county. Of all the jurists in the state not one can excel Judge Rice. His record stands out preeminently in his favor, his decisions have rarely been reversed, while his opinions on complex legal questions are accepted without comment." "BRAMBLE."
