Twenty years ago Greenwood town* ship covered all the northwest corner of Kossuth and had 333 people. Joel Taylor was in town yesterday for the first time since last September. He is improving in health a little. Miss Anna Belle Light and five other lady teachers at Spencer struck last week—resigned their situations. The ball boys are planning to challenge the Armstrong nine, which has been doing so much talking lately The two sons of Abraham St. John are back in Algona. They are on the road trading horses and say they make a living at it. . Orange Minkler gets word from the asylum. at Independence that Mrs. Minkler will not be able to come to Algona for a month at least. Dr. Shore has bought a lot in Des Moines and will build a home there this summer. He is gaining a big practice in the Capital City. John A. Winkel was down . from Bancroft last week and went on to Wisconsin to act for the family in settling the estate left by his mother. Everybody who enjoys the best will go to hear Remenyi on the violin tonight. He is one of the world's great artists and popular in his methods. A new member has been added to the Hamilton lumber firm. It is a boy and his appearance dates from Monday noon. J. A. is pretty proud over the new comer. Col. Sessions says that from one to three new state normal schools will be established by the coming legislature. He says that this is a general impression over the state. Jas, Taylor notifies us that the Fourth of July committee will bold a public meeting tomorrow evening at Clarke's hall. All the public is invited to be present. A return ball game with Lu Verne is on for Saturday at the fair grounds. The News says: "Algona has a strong team and will be playing good ball before the season is over." Samuel Mayne is down attending court. We hear a large-sized rumor that his name will be before the republican convention in connection with the legislative nomination. Agent Vesper is arranging for that train for the Odd Fellows to run from Bancroft and switch on the tracks for Livermore at Lu Verne. The Odd Fellows celebrate : at the latter place June 4. Mike Winkel has been offered the position at the Northwestern depot left vacant by B. A. Palmer, He will accept and will be back in Algona soon. Mike has been going up in the railway service. There will be an entertainment at the Doan Methodist church of Buffalo Forks, Saturday evening, May 25, for the benefit of the Sunday school and ladies' mite society. Admission 15 cents; children, 10 cents. John G. Smith bagged nine "dough" birds at one shot last week. They are a variety of snipe and are not common in these parts. The editor's family joins C. L. Lund's in testifying to the excellence of the "dough." Rev, Kennedy exchanged pulpits Sunday with Rev, Cole of Bancroft, He reports a very pleasant meeting with the Bancroft people. Rev. Cole was well received here and preached to well pleased congregations, A. D. Clarke is making .very extensive permanent improvements on his 480-acre farm east of the Milwaukee depot and will have a very finely fitted establishment when he gets done, He will keep this to enjoy himself. Sheriff Samson has bought the old Call home on North Dodge street. He has a historic structure as well AS a comfortable home.

He has had lots of experience as town mat-shall and-ought to step into the sheriff's office well fitted to do business from the staH. We hope to report that he is a winner, Peter Purvis has been authorized to erect a new flag pole on the court house, and the flag will float again on the Fourth. Mr. Purvis put up the old pole when the court house was built 22 years ago. We hope lie may live to put up the third after another 22 years, A Lu Verne boy went out for big game one day last week with an old muzzle loading rifle charged with bullets of tea lead he had chewed up. He succeeded in shooting a Valuable three-year-old colt, belonging to John Snyder, in the flank and the horse died. The News says a law suit will be the outcome. In 1875 Algona had 987 people out of Kossuth's 3,765. Now it has 2,470 out of nearly 18,000 in the county. Algona has gained 1,491' in 20 years, or an average of nearly 75 a year. At the same rate it will still fall short of 3,000 in 1900. We ought to do something to quicken our gait a little and try and enter the new century . with 3,000 at least. Col. Sessions has decided during the past week to be a candidate for the legislature to succeed himself. He and Andy Dunlap are the announced candidates, while A. A. Brunsbn, and Geo. is. Boyle are frequently mentioned. Others are talked of but not to such an extent as to bring them into the Held as yet. Kossuth should pick its best man this year. Prof. Dixson and all his present corps of teachers were elected for the coming year at the board meeting Monday by unanimous . vote. Miss Coate, the efficient high school teacher, is to have $700 the coming year, and Miss Louise McCoy is given full work at $50 a month. Miss Coate had an offer from elsewhere of $75 a month. It is rumored that several teachers will resign. Company F has voted in favor of a proposition to march this year instead of going into camp. If it carries the Fourth regiment will meet at some central point and march across country ten miles a day for five days. The boys say it would be easier as they could get through their work by noon and would avoid the hot drilling in the afternoon, which they will have if they locate in camp. They will probably know soon how the other companies have voted. The Emmetsburg Democrat says THE UPPER DES MOINES "shouts for joy" because Kossuth stands 13th as a butter county and adds: "Those Kossuth fellows can certainly make a great noise over a very small affair." It is not a very small affair that a frontier county like Kossuth should be 13th in hundred in butter production. But balking about making a noise over small affairs was it not in Emmetsburg that honors were claimed for Palo Alto as a wolf county? Rev, Rome Walker is visiting at lome and preached in the Baptist church Sunday morning to a large congregation. He is located at Belvidere, 111., and is meeting with great success in his work. He created quite a sensation in the winter by vigorously denouncing dancing and was written up extensively in the Chicago papers. His Sunday sermon was earnest and rhoughtful and a marked improvement over any previous effort in Algona, Algona watches his success with .interest as it does that of all the young men t has sent out, The public library will be moved to ,ts new rooms in Memorial hall next week and will then be in very handsome quarters. New paint, paper, and a north entrance have made a change which leaves the old rooms scarcely recognizable. There will be two ooms, a library 20x27 feet and a read- .ng room 21x26 feet. The library will mve one new case, and altogether over B100 will be spent in fixing up, -With 1,200 volumes of good books and all the "eading magazines Algona will have an nstitution to he proud of and the beginning of one of the best libraries in ;he state, Just 20 years ago A. T. Apdreas of Chicago worked up his celebrated atlas of Iowa, copies of which still lumber up many attics in Kossuth county PO doubt, It was pot worth the $18 Jt cost then, but it is valuable PPW to anyone who is curious to know how the map of a state or county has changed n that time, and what we have grown 'rom, KossHtb, county in J875 Sad a total population of 3,765 people, and was divided into only nine townships, It had only 28,835 acres Jn cultivation^ raised only 119,777 bushels of corn, had only 7,073 milk cows, and sold only $2,56,3 of flairy prpfluois, Some single Qwnehips now nearly equal this eoord, The MoNntt contest from Qresoo was >ear4by Sups, Reed, Friday. & V, Sweating appeared for tb§ contestants and the, directors appeared far them, eelyes, - Mr, MoNatt is the. director for hie ewtHjiitrjot, Re PQUW p,n.iy be • • the ejiter 'MOVEMENTS.

Stevens rode his bicycle to Emmetsburg and back a week ago Monday and took in a seven-mile side trip beside. Bethinks nothing of 20 and 30 miles at a run. Mrs. Vincent was chosen a delegate Sunday by the Congregational church to attend the state meeting of that denomination now in session at Spencer. Rev. Davidson is also a delegate, and Mrs. J. E. Stacy and Mrs. C. D. Pettibone are in attendance. It is a very large gathering. J. L. Kamrar was up from Webster City for a visit last week. He has plenty of friends in this county who would like to see him governor, and he will undoubtedly get Kossuth 's aid if a nomination becomes at any time possible. It looks now as though the county would go to the convention to assist any of the Tenth district candidates if they can be nominated. Money. I have unlimited money to loan on long or short time. B.
