PRIVATE SAFETY DEPOSIT VAULTS. t ^TtB^rest paid on time deposits, son of Oliver Dodds, who was riding breaking one leg in two places. Wolves are said to be plenty along the river. Isn't it about time for an other hunt to exterminate them? Grant Hamilton has been very • low the past week with appendicitis. No surgical operation was performed. There will be a big house out Friday evening for Jane Coombs. The Register says several will come from Bancroft. This ought to be a pretty good time to petition Supt. Hughes for that Des Moines train that has been talked about. It is rumored that the United States marshal was in LuVerne Monday and that when he left ex-Postmaster Darr went with him. Mrs. Pluraley and Rose Shadle were fined at Webster City, the total with costs amounting to $58. They paid and were released. The new town building is about enclosed and gives promise of good looks. It is fully as expensive a building as Algona needs. The county's 80 year list still grows. Mrs. G. A. Wilson sends us the name of P. Rawson of Lotts Creek, who reached 82 last January. John Grove is poyering the territory from Clear Lake to Spencer with his grocery supply business. He expects to push it still further as rapidly as he gets agents, Jas, Orr has been giving the woodwork in the Boston block a mirror finish the past week, You can see your face in any of the panels where he has oiled them, .

We were never charged with it before. D. J. Long found half a hog of dressed meat on the rOad last week and took part of it home. Frank Winlcel missed the meat and got out a search warrant. As soon as the matter.was explained it was promptly settled, Frank Nicoulin will have an expert upholsterer here next month. He will make buggy tops, cushions, etc., and do repair work. Mr. Nicoulin says that they will manufacturer a line of fine surreys this winter. The Des Moines Capital has a table of data about our legislators. Opposite Samuel Mayne's name is the following: Born in New York, 14 years in Iowa, age 41. The average age of the lower house is 46 years. It will pay all our readers to look over the week's advertisements and ihen look over the holiday display before buying for Christmas. There was lever a handsomer lot of goods brought to Algona, and prices are very low. The steam beating apparatus is here or the cogrt house and Thorington ?he firm tried to get orders for money when the goods were at the depot, but ailed. Then they went ahead under .he contract, and will soon have the leaters in, The Algona dancing club held its first official meeting Monday evening. A big party was out and an enjoyable one. I. M. Finnell is president, J, L. Bonar is secretary and Chas. Cohenour is treasurer. Dances will be given once a month. THE UPPER DES MOINES should have credited the mounting of the golden eagle Geo, Blaokford killed to E. H Clarke. He had it sent away 'and nicely preserved and is to put it in the reading room soon. At present it graces the Grange Store. Deputy Sheriff Brunson was at Brad' gate last week to identify good? thought to have been stolen from Cook Bros ' store at Hobart, It proved that they had were stolen somewhere else. No trace of the Hobart thieves has been found, Cook Bros, are out about $200 worth of stuff, Supt, Hughes, the genial Northwestern man a(< Eagle Grove, was married last week to Mre, c, A. Sohaffter, Both are well known in Algona and both are most estimable people, They will make their home in Eagle Grove. THE. UPPER PBS MOINES joins in con* gratujattans, .,, ' Algona BenH4 Odd Fellow? tp Get* mania Friday to Jn^all a new "lodge, The boys say they worked till wor citizens fujjy lately board, men might stay there." Thi "if" involves a ' thorough sewerage which would be a big item of expense to begin with. Then it means a com plete new jail if dangerous prisoner! are to be kept in it. Even then a safe jail is not possible, ns the experience o so many towns has proved. Anyone has a rightabout a court house, and it is impossible to keep prisoners from receiving outside assistance while in basement jails. The county would be simply fooling away money to put any more into the court house basement. One of the chief witnesses in the Prink case wns Mr. McElroy. the traveling man who sold the goods.' He came from Chicago Thursday night and on arriving in Algona got a telegram announcing that his mother had died! suddenly of paralysis. He was so affected by the news that he could hardly keep his mind on the case at all. He went to Chicago on the evening train. Prof. J. B. Bice, who is to open a series of meetings for the Presbyterians tonight, called yesterday. He is a Kentuckinn by birth and has traveled extensively spending- three years in Egypt, Palestine, etc., on one trip, and a year on another. He comes here, tinder the auspices of the Iowa synod and will remain two weeks or .longer. He will give some lectures on oriental life while here. Some of the Presbyterians feel that they are not fairly represented in their attempt to drganize a church in Algona, especially by the statements that they are a new society. The fact is they were pioneers here, Rev. McComb, we believe, beginning with theyearlone. Rev. McDonald was a Presbyterian pastor in Algona for several years, and the society ceased active operations when he left. The plot of Dickens' Bleak House turns upon the relationship of Lady Dedlock and Esther Summerson, which neither is aware of. Lady Dedlock is Esther's mother, but she supposes her child is dead and has long covered up that unpleasant episode of her youth LawyerTuIkinghorn, however, relentlessly follows up various clues until he unearths it. In the meantime Hortense, Lady Dedlock's maid, has been dismissed and plots revenge. Tulking- horn discloses to Lady Dedlock that he knows her past, that night he is shot, Hortense gives out that Lady Dedlock did the act. Bucket, the detective, very shrewdly guesses that Hortense did it to put her late mistress in suspicion. Lady Dedlock, her secret out, wanders off and dies on the grave of her first Jove. Krook, with his bottle shop, Little Jo, always ordered to move on, Guppy the lawyer's clerk, John Jarndyce, one of the principals in the famous chancery suit of Jarndyce & Jarndyce, and Esther Summerson's guardian, all take their places in the development of the drama, of his wife, who lies at death's door at a hospital in Batavin, 111. They will both be buried In Madison, where their first child wns buried many, years ago. They Jenve four children to inherit a large fortune. Revs. Walter and Rome Walker return to their homes tonight, the former to Elgin and the latter to Belvideca, Both are meeting with great success in their church work. Mr. and Mrs. Will F. Walker .will remain in Algona a week or more. They are comfortably located in Chicago and report Mr. and Mrs. Jos. W. Hays also pleasantly located. The business of the firm has been good in spite of dull times. ». Rev. Sinclair will spend the coming two weeks at Grinnell or will supply vacant pulpits in the state. He will come to Algona to begin his work with ;he first Sunday in January. Mrs. Sinclair is visiting in Ohio, and may not come to Algona for some weeks. G. W. Pangburu was down from Elmore yesterday. He is one of Dr. Jacobs' attorneys in the malpractice suit and was interested in Judge Thomas ruling on the motion: to dismiss it. Mrs. Pangburn is in Fayette for a two weeks visit with Mr.. Pangburn's rela- ives. Representative Mayne was down at court Monday. He has receivedacopy )f the new code and from a hasty in- pection says that a lot of work will be nvolved in its adpption.. Among other hings new grounds for divorce are in- ,luded, among them failure to cohabit or one year. This he' thinks would )ut us in competition with South Dakota as a state of divorce mills. He favors making radical changes slowly, and taking plenty of time to thoroughly investigate the code before adopting it. CLARKE & COHENOUR, ATTORNEYS AT LAW. Office over First Na E. H.
