Walker Whiteside two weeks irom yesterday. From Oet, 3 td Nov. 6 there were Si marriage licenses issued, Witiard Stebbins and. Miss Cora Phelps were married a week ago. Rev. Davidson expects to be in Al- goba to preach twice in December, Rev. Thrush of Spencer wili preach next Sunday for the Congregationalists. Thanksgiving is set for Nov. 28, which will be two weeks from tomorrow. The ladies of tbe A. L. A. will meet with Mrs. J. W. Hay next Friday at 2 o'clock. M. F. Wheeler is here from Denver for a week's visit with his sister, Mrs. Guy Grove. Rev. J. B. Clapp will preach in tbe Swede M. E. church next Sunday at 2 o'clock p. m. The Methodist Surfday school will hereafter meet at 10 o'clock instead of at 12 as heretofore. A. A. Crose, our old-time county superintendent, was married last week to Miss LavinaBirkofer. A club dance is on for Monday evening next by tbe Sterzbach-Cady orchestra at Clarke's hall. The fire department are making arrangements for a dance at the court house hall Thanksgiving evening. Rev. Stewart of Britt went to Chicago with a train load of his stock the Tuesday after he preached in Algona. About four inches of snow came last week as a gentle reminder. But winter still holds off, as the snow is about gone. Court is in session at Emmetsburg and that $25,000 damage case against the Milwaukee road is on trial. It may be continued. Geo. R. Cloud was in Emmetsburg yesterday and Monday on legal business. His practice calls him to all the neighboring courts. No money will be better invested by anyone in Algona than by putting $1 into the six lectures to be given this winter in the normal lecture course. The letter from Mexico by Geo. Bovee appears in this issue, as it was crowded outlast week. It is a'newsy- description of a fur oft part of tbe world. Leon Hack, son of Algona's old-time miller, was married last week to Miss Minnie Brooks of Dakota City. We note that Lieut. Dougherty was over to the wedding. Yesterday afternoon the county fathers went to St. Joe to see the new iron bridge and accept it. It is said to be the best bridge the county has yet invested its money in. Editor Laidly has down from Bancroft yesterday to talk with the county board about the propriety of a third official paper. They may in their discretion have three in counties of our population. The county board visited the Blackford bridge yesterday and found one end of It in such shape that they lost no time in getting men to work on it. The timbers have rotted at the east end so that it is not wholly safe. J, J, Wilkinson got a letter the day after election from a candidate for the Algona school principalship asking him to use bis influence, as he had no doubt be had been triumphantly elected. J. J. thought that was having it rubbed in on him. There is a report out that Marshal Graham of Burt is in town this morning to arrest Sheriff Samson for talking politics in Burt yesterday in too vigorous a manner, Sheriff Samson is not in town and what the facts are or how the matter will terminate is not known. G, F, Foster has bought A. N. Shaw's interest in Doxsee & Shaw's abstract office and takes immediate possession. He has been with Surveyor Tellier considerably, is well acquainted in tbe county and is a floe young man, Algona will regret to lose Mr, Sbaw but w lucky in gaining Mr. Foster, A program of a home talent rendition ojt two ac,ts of Martha and one act of Faust to be given in Webster City has been repelved, Mies Carrie Kam- nvr,' who has many friends in Algona, lings as Marguerite in Faust. She made a great MHast yewJjJj** """ musician, Geo, E. Clarke and J, W, himfielf, having secured the money for it bimielfi Since cotnttig to Algona he has demented the leaks in the paf- sdnftge cistern himself. He says he In May, 1898, a traveling fflftn named Madden got into tbe Tenrtftflt house 'bus, which ttoe Nebergali was driving, Anothef brother 6! the road Mldwed him and threw down, a 20*poubd grip in such a way that the Corner struck bis instep. He complained of the hurt, Snd8 S that If yo.u"waiit a thing done it pays to give it personal attention and he acts on that' rule, Meanwhile he irenches a good, vigorous gospel each Sunday. THE UPPER DBS-MOINES wasted but little space in urging the jail tnx. It has no confidence in legislating-by di' rect vote. Too few of the voters are in position to investigate into the-merits of any proposed change. Still tbe supervisors cannot build without a vote and BO the proposition will doubtless be submitted again. In the meantime the county will be at big expense to send prisoners to Mason City or some place which has a jail. The sale of seats for Walker Whiteside's Hamlet will begin tomorrow morning at Dingley's at the following scale of prices, which is the same as were charged for Madam Janauschek's Macbeth: Dress circle, $1.26; parquet, $1; fli'st three rows of balcony, $1; balcony, 76 cents; general admission, 50 cents. The Whiteside company costs the management one half more than Madame Janauschek, and twice as much as any other company ever in the opera house since the opening. The first two of the Webster historical lectures were given last Wednesday and Thursday evenings, and they proved to all who were present that Mr. Webster is an expert in matters of. American history. He is thoroughly well posted, is a clear, interesting talker, and encourages discussion and thought along new lines. He speaks on the evening of Dec. 2, on "Jefferson Democracy," and no one who enjoys a clean cut, vigorous, historical lecture will miss it. His conducing lecture will be given Dec. 3. Rev. Leslie, the Episcopalian rector, has gone. Exactly where he has gone seems to be unknown. He went because the local society found it impossible, they told him, to. raise any wherewithal. A farewell reception was tendered him, we understand, in a business office in town, where a repast rich and rare was spread and where the genial bonds of good fellowship were tightened as tight as a good wetting would tighten them. A new rector will be secured and the society, which has grown, will not stop wOrk in Algona. County Attorney Raymond was in Bancroft Saturday trying that stabbing case wherein Beiraler stuck his brother-in-law Mack with a brad awl.^ S. E. McMahon defended a.nd Justice Barge dismissed Beimler, Raymond assuring them that unless all reasonable doubt, of his innocence was overcome it would not be worth while to bind him over,. Beimler and Mack told exactly opposing stories, and they were the only ones at the row. The corroborating testimony was about even and the case was called a draw. Doubtless the families will hereafter keep far enough apart to prevent a brad awl from doing much mischief. Attorney Raymond began a divorce suitifbr Mrs. E. N. Ryan of Swea City lastj'week and sent notice to Mason City for service only to learn that Ryan was buried last week Monday, He is the man who was with Dr, Heflin, and who was chased barefoot to Bancroft over the snow a year ago by an uprising of Swea City people. He was married to Minnie Burgman Sept. 5,1894, and immediately bad her life insured for $10,000 and hints began to get abroad that she was in need of a serious surgical operation which he and Heflin would con-, duct. It was strongly suspected that they intended that she should never get well, and this was one of the reasons for the feeling against both. Ryan was a bad man and in his death the world at large gets ahead. Now that R, Moora Carpenter has left Ledyard journalistic fields the reason why he was against Dr. Morse for coroner may as well be published, especially as it is rather amusing. After the Fay Howl^nd suicide he wrote to Dr, Morse for the coroner's verdict and wanted to have it signed by eaoji of the jurors, Dr, Morse sent him the verdict, but eaid that as the jurors lived in various parts of the county perhaps be had better take A 4ay off and go around for tbe signatures himself, This provoked our esteemed contemporary's wrath and he decided that the office should be filled by someone whose head woujcl not be aff eot ed by the honor, We note that Dr. Morse ran one ahead of Drake, but we are confident that It was. not Bro, Car* penter's vote, As Dr, Kennefick also pan ahead of Judge Babb considerably both oftnJWates ebPwW feel well over the outcome. The opening social junjpn program drew a crowded auAiew^ VOQUJ Friday evening, The chief feature, was a talk . _. ™ ,*„, gQQjg'exne.riejjoes " m hi " but thought nothing of it, Next day he went to Hurt, and then to Bfitt and then to his home in Chicago, Whera he died, in seven days from the accident, of blood poisoning. He held a $5,000 accident insurance policy in the State Traveling Me»'s association, and his brother presented a claim for the money. The company refused to pay, claiming that the Wood poisoning did not result from an accident, and further that he froze his foot. Suit was begun by Cummins & Wright of Des Moines and is still pending. Thursday Carroll Wright and Lawyer Parks of Des Moines were in Algona taking depositions before S. S. Sessions, who was agreed upon as referee. Messrs. Coffen, Peck,Tubbs and others from Burt, Roe Nebergal), etc., were examined. It will be a hotly 'fought case and is certainly a curious one. Narrow Escape from Fire. Chas. Stinson's big store at Sheldon had a close call last week.- A light had been taken into the basement for some purpose and was left there and forgotten for the time being. In some way, by explosion or otherwise, the flame ignited a lot of cotton batting. The Mail says: John Stinson, who had meanwhile scented the odor of fire, rushed down stairs and attempted to subdue the blaze by picking up the burning cotton and carrying it out of the building. In doing so he burned his hands to a .blister. The fire was put out after this act on John's part before it had made headway enough to do any serious damage. Dr. W. H. Myers dressed John's painfully scorched hands, and he has since recovered from the injuries. But for John's prompt and plucky work the city would have experienced a destructive and costly conflagration. A Narrow Escape for Thresbera. A threshing machine was running so slow up at Armstrong last week that the bundle pitcher had time to stop and pick a paper package he noticed out of one he was throwing in. The paper contained a stick of dynamite 12 inches long and as thick as a fork handle. The owner of the stack was summoned and remembered putting it in the stack and forgetting about it. Tbe men are wondering what would have happened if the dynamite had gone into the machine. .

Miss Grace Sifert was so unfortunate as to lose $10 while shopping about Ledyard a few evenings ago. Thomas Brooks up at Armstrong began unwinding twine, etc., from the cog wheels of a thresher. His thumb began to wind in and he saved his arm by pulling it off, the thumb cord pulling out of the arm 12 inches. Election morning Representative Mayne lighted his fire with kerosene. The oil seemed to join in the spirit of the occasion and preceded to celebrate with an unusual illumination which touched his eyebrows and moustache. He was not seriously burned. A premium wolf story comes from Ledyard and if it is a sample of the new'Leader editor's capacity we will put him up against Bailey. Here It is: A farmer living southwest of town some distance saw a wolf near his corn field the other day, and "borrowing" a couple of greyhounds from a neighbor put them upon its track. The animals sped with great speed as such animals can and will if fun is ahead and danger behind, but his wolfship got rattled or thought to avoid his nearing captors, and made for a burning peatbed and plunged in, the dogs following, since which time the trio haven't tasted of feed, No trace of them could be found and they may be sinking yet for all anybody knows, so swiftly were they running, It is too bad the poor brutes perished so ignobly. is their fault and not hers. There is no merit whatever in the story told by Chalmers, and his attempt 'to cause trouble will only result in temporary unpleasantness. Mrs. Cronk is an attractive lady and will have the sympathy of everybody in her trouble. _ The Register special in the main is as follows: ... The young man in question was Mr. Frank L. Chalmers of Ues Moines. His mission to this city was a curious one. Only last Monday ho discovered that his wife, Edith Chalmers, had secured a divorce from him in the August term of the Marshall county district court. As soon as he heard the rumor he proceeded at once to this place. The records show, and it will be remembered that one Edith Chalmers, residing \\\- Oilman, secured of Judge Birdsall a divorce from her husband, Frank Chalmers, on S«pt. 11, on petition charging him with adultery. Such petition was grunted, anc^ service was made through-publication. On Sept. 28 Mrs. Edith Chalmers, age 24, and Mr. A. P. Cronk, age 25, a pharmacist of Bancroft, were licensed to wed and on the same evening were united in marriage by Rev. Ward at the Methodist parsonage. All went happy as a m'arriugR boll with the new couple. Husbund No. 1 at this time was living at Des Moines and he^laims was entirely ignorant of the affair until a few days ago. He also claims that bis residence being known, he should have been given personal service and according to the statutes if personal service has not been rendered, _the defendant can set the default, and virtually the decree, aside, if done within the limit of two years. He alleges he At Wholesale Prices. UUO 11 IJ-TLU \Ji U *¥ U J «-»«ii»» w» -.---^ — a -- . knew nothing of the affair whatever, knew nothing of the charge of adultery and is not guilty of such a charge. He was married at Des Moines two years ago, at the time being a motorman on the street car. He says his wife left him after about ten weeks, of mamea life and went to live with Dr. and Mrs. Graves at Oilman, giving for a reason for such action that she didn't love* him. He remained in Des Moines nnd she in Oilman until -recently. Mrs, Edith Canon-Chalmers-Cronk is a very pretty young woman and is known in this city, having visited friends here a number of times.
