Jane Coombs comes next' week Friday, Dec. 20. A dancing club is being "organized in town with about 40 members. J. B. Laird's home rejoices in a bouncing boy baby since Sunday. J. L: Moore ia carrying a broken arm, the result of a kick from a colt. • Jo. Cordingly has added a fine engine and meat cutter to his outfit lately. The Presbyterians invite everybody to join in Prof. Rice's meetings which open tonight. Prof. Lilly lost $40 on the four Webster lectures. This don't speak well for Algona. Lawyer Thompson of Bancroft is on his seventh week in bed with inflammatory rheumatism. The reading room ladies took in over $40 at the "cafetaire," which is not bad for a mild " taire" of that kind. Walker Whiteside played Shylock in Cedar Rapids and Richelieu in Des Moines, both to crowded houses. The normal school had 60 students Monday. The attendance is good and promises to increase considerably. Marriage licenses have been issued to Wm, Dreyer and Minnie Dau, Wm. Maron and Anna Markgraf, H. Coombs and Viola Best, Rev. Boardman of Humboldt gets $1,500 salary at Webster City, - He was an applicant for the Algona pulpit, but is in better luck, Dickens' Bleak house is not a short tale and those who expect to get it read before the play had bettor be getting the dust off the book covers. The very fine golden eagle shot by Geo, Blackford is handsomely mounted. Mr, Brownell *' paid the freight" and has the bird on exhibition at his store, The removal of the telegraph office to the front room in the Algona State bank building up stairs will occur as soon as the line m,en can come to make it, The telephone exchange is about in. Geo, Bailey will " hello" at the ceotral pfflce, which will be open from 8 a. m. to 9 p. m. There are 35 telephones in town, Two young bpys were arrested last pight for tapping ft money drawer, Algona's youngsters are in need of some good home discipline, a Ipt of them, The teachers' meeting at Burt Satur- 3ay Should and, doubtless will bring a Wg body of educators together. These meetings, are a good thing and have peon very successful. What are wec0mlng*tQ?

The report is very complete and interesting. A fine portrait of Dr. Shore appears in the December Midland in connection with a sketch of Mercy hospital in Des Moines. In this- connection we note that the doctor is building a handsome home in the city. We publish elsewhere a few only of the numerous notices of the death of J. J. Wilson, which have appeared in neighboring papers, ns an indication of the friendly regard for him in this part of the state. The fire company and half the town turned out Friday for a fire call from W. F. Thackeray's home, ttie old Stebbins house in the south part of town; The fire was subdued before any considerable damage was done. Judge Thomas came over Monday afternoon to hold court for Judge Quar-> ton, as there are several cases on for trial in which the latter is interested. Judge Quarton is holding Judge Thomas' court in Spencer for him. The Marshalltown Times-Republican clips Axel. Sundstrom's record from THE UPPER DES MOINES and says he is a sure enough "crack shot." Axel, can have a place in Algona's big meeting of world champions next spring. The Christmas display in Algona is better than ever before. The class of goods is uniformly better and prices are astonishingly low in many lines. As good a selection and as fine goods are shown as can be found in the cities. Shadle & Long left their quart measure out on their pail of oysters one* day last week. Someone helped himself to oysters and the measure. The boys say they could spare the oysterp, but think the fellow ought to return the can, The Algona orchestra consisting of Kate Smith, Mrs. Chas. E. Jones, Glen. Brunson, Chas, and D. K. Walker, and Andy Powell will play again for the Coombs entertainment. They make a musical combination hard to beat in Iowa. Jane Coombi is one of the older actresses and a woman who ranks with the leaders Jn emotional" parts. Her rendition of Bleak House will be one of the events of the winter. Everybody should read Dickens' great story before attending. Dr. Sayers hands us a catalogue of the state veterinary school at Ames, If any of the yoyng wen of the sounty want to Investigate the cost of a "course 9f etudy Jn this branch tney can get all the information they want by applying to nim, A scooting match between AW. Sunctatrom of Bancroft and Al- Gllapn of Algona }s proposed. The Register eaye that only pne outcome pould re? eult. The Register must remember the old rule *'the game is ijeyer Qwt tJlHUB played out." Over at Whittwore.someojje thought he had Caught a burglar Jn Ale* ~ weilftivs Hour hQU66, and B nnnn |9F the course. He. has been for two years in DeWitt. Clinton county, and resigned there with the intention of going east. ButBev.Towle persuaded him to give Algona a visit. He is a genial man to meet, and with his wife and two children will be a decided addition to Algona. Algona can for $1,500 put in an arc light plant sufficient to Hghtthestreets and furnish the big lights to such business houses,' etc., as need them. In Monticello, J. W. Doxsee informs us, the merchants quite generally use the arc lights. ; For $5,600 Estherville. put in a full 1,000 light Dlant in connection with the water works. Geo. C. Call has put some handsome sycamore furniture into his office. He thought that he would have -a change from oak: The handsomest oak we have seen ia in the Burt bank. Nothing but highly polished quarter sawed lumber was used. Nothing surpasses oak, but sycamore is a beautiful wood and takes-a high polish,' and Mr. Call has a handsome office. The Webster historical lectures drew small houses but stirred up considerable discussion. Mr. Webster attacked the popular idea of Jefferson and Jackson with great vigor, it is perhaps enough to faay of his lectures, in respect to Jefferson at least, that they do not represent the views of the latest and ablest historical writers, such as John -Fiske, Henry Adams, etc. The dedication of the new -'-Lutheran school in Lotts Creek will occur on Sunday, Jan. 5. Rev. Zuerrur of Fort Dodge will be present among others to assist. The new' house is 20x40 feet 'and accom modates - 50 scholars. W m. Schmeil is teacher and is said to be a very competent man. The German Lutherans are very strong in Lotts Creek, and the school is by what used to be called the Fenton church. J. R. Jones writes home that he only found one implement house in Atlanta and the owner of that told him it was the only one in the state. He says the Wigwam sells more than is sold in the whole state of Georgia, and that what is sold there wouldn't be looked at by an Iowa farmer. Anyone who has. seen a southern farm can readily believe all Mr. Jones says. They don't know what modern implements are in the south. Rev. Davidson returned to Algona yesterday weighing 15 pounds more than ever before and in excellent health. He has a unanimous call to the church in Delevan, Wis., where he gets $1,200 a year and a parsonage to be built this season, making it a better salary than he has had here. Delevan is a noted resort place and has a $12,000 church, Rev, Davidson will preach his farewell sermon in Algona Dec, 29. THE UPPER DES MOINES has missed another of the county's hearty old people. Mrs, Annie Ross will be 95 years old next August, She is the mother of Mrs, Geo, Smith and Mrs, Wm. Miller of Algona, and came from Scotland five years ago, in her 90th year, She is as vigorous as ever, works all day at her knitting and sewing, walks to town in good weather, has all her faculties unimpaired, and is evidently good for the 100 year mark at least, She stands second in the county list, Mrs, Hudson of Bancroft alone being older, R. F. Hedrlck: tells a good foraging story, When he was in the army be noticed a likely looking place about two mtlesurotn, where big company qamped, and in the dusky hours of evening added that distance" to the day's march, He captured a bag of meal and smacked his lips as he thought of the flapjacks be would have, The griddle was well filled wi(b grease a.nd the roeal poured in, and everything went well until he tried to turn bis cake, It didn't seem to bang together well, and beginning to be suspicious, be put W§ ftngey OB it anl tbe,» ia bis 8k,l» Rear-ly ' Highest Awarded Fjir, . «-%^> milj^^ " — " it. He'had captured a bag of plaster of Paris. There seems to be a hitch in the steam heat deal. After Macbeth got the contract for the court house and Thorington he went north to make arrangements. When these were made the cotnpanieslie was dealing with sent down to get our people to guarantee their pay. They wanted the supervisors to accept an order for $350 to be paid as soon as the iron was. at .the depot. They were notified that the pay would be forthcoming when the iron was in the court house and running as specified in the contract and not before. Landlord McMurray's response was similar and for a week- nothing has been heardi It would seem that Macbeth was making a deal on his own hook, and is now unable to deliver the goods. Money.
