Arrangements are being made for a calico ball to be given on Jan. 13, by the relief committee and young ladles of Algona. As a matter of fact it is the regular annual charity ball of the relief committee, and the proceeds will bo devoted to the assistance of the needy.

Evangelist Rice will begin Monday evening a series of four lectures at the courthouse which will treat chiefly of the customs and manners of the Orient. He is provided with costumes, household, field, and camp implements with which he is able to make his lectures truly entertaining.

The admission fee is fixed at 25 cents, or $1 for the entire course. Sheriff Samson went to Blue Earth yesterday to testify in the case of Sam. Greene, whom he arrested in November last in Algona, charged with horse stealing. As the story goes Greene borrowed a livery team at Wells, Minn., and through some oversight forgot to return it. He made numerous efforts to dispose of the outfit, and finally left it at a neighboring town. Sheriff Samson had a description of him and found him just getting into a farmer's wagon here to go into the country to work. We shall learn later how well Sam. is able to explain the mistake. The fire company held its annual meeting Monday evening, at which the following officers were elected for the ensuing year: Chief, Geo. E. Hamilton; first foreman, Will Hart; second foreman, Geo.

Hudson in the Algona cigar factory, the new firm being Schu & Waterhouse. Pending a possible change the factory has not been running on full time during the past three weeks, but the former force will soon again be put on, and the factory is certain to do a lively business. Mr. Waterhouse will assume charge of the outside work, the same as he did when he owned the factory before, while Mr. Schu takes care of the home end of the trade and will superintend the work in the factory. The firm of Sohu & Hudson has done a satisfactory business during the past nine months. Mr, Hudson has not determined upon his future course, t Rev. Davidson left last Friday evening to assume his new charge at Delavan, Wis. Mrs. Davidson will go in the course of a few days. We need not assure the Delavan people that they will find in Rev. Davidson a scholarly and forceful minister whose attainments are far above the average, and' whose capacity for good in the church is only limited by his physical strength. He is now so far restored from his long illness as to be able to resume his full ministerial duties, and we expect to hear that the Delavan people are well pleased with their new acquisition, A- reception was given Mr, and Mrs, Davidson last Thursday evening at the spacious borne of Lewis H. Smith, the large attendance at which testified to the esteem in which they are held in this community, A letter from Bert, Edmonds gives the Information that he has sold his business at Des Moines and has gone to Seymour, Ind., where he accepts a sit' nation as general manager for a large firm which win engage in the manu' facture of bicycles, His Jpng experience at Des, Moines will be found invaluable to the firm with which be b« & twbed Wmwlf, ana we eMl bear goga reports of bis ma*, ?& tows how to ma.kea bicycle ^ that se/mj & were in e W ob, of; ground -uo, fia S ma P 90 Pays Rent, Heftt» tight, Tuitiofl, Bdbk Refit, y in d e CoimfeUl departmeflt o dji Ito Koniwl ScHooi,.AlgoM, Idwa for a course of six months, Remember yotrAre not donfined to the Commercial course alone, but have^ the pmiW of selecting studies in any of the courses in the Normal Department, We Educate For Usefulness..
