Thompson against th Milwaukee railway company by whlc he will secure the full verdict give him by the jury at Fort Dodge. Th money has not yet been paid but sooi will be, $4,125. People accustom themselves qulckl to new things. The" telephone ex change is already in great demand Mr. Bailey has all he can do at the he' lo station, connecting local lines, whil from 25 to 40 messages to and from ou side towns go every day. THE UPPER DES MOINES is threal ened with a libel suit. Last week I said that Emanuel Erlckson had bee brought before " the insane commis sion," and Dr. Morse, Clerk Crose, an Justice Clarke are prepared to asset and maintain'that this is clearly Hbe lous. Judge Thomas has not yet decide* that question of allowing Minnesot parties to catch each other over th Iowa line and so get their law suits in to the Iowa courts. Until he does i will not be known whether Algona is t hear that $5,000 Elmore malpractic case or not. We were a little belated last .wee with an item about the marriage of th Johnsons at Bancroft, all because th marriage licenses were taken out of th rear of the book to keep the' curiou from knowing they had been issued] But wo can make a better report nov than to announce the marriage. Bot have proved to be happy, and that i the chief thing. O. B. Durdall tells a joke on himsel While showing off hats on-his 25 cen counter he accidentally laid his ow $5 hat among them. In a few minute someone asked him the price of th hats and be called out without looking up, "Anything in the lot for 25 cents. The man wrapped up the hat, paid th quarter, and walked, off. Mr. Durdal is wearing another hat these days. The date has been set for Algona' big shooting tournament. It is t come on the second Tuesday in' May and all the champions are to be here Budd, Grimm, Wilson, Gilbert, etc Guy Taylor has already sent in an order for five new traps and the neces sary clay birds. Algona's shooting grounds have always been popular, am" a big gathering may be counted on. The Northwestern road have decide' to appeal from Judge Thomas' ruling that that the Bohns should have a ne\ trial in the fence case. It was in thi case that one of the jurors told the oth ers that he helped.build the fence and knew that it was all right. It is close question when a verdict can o when it cannot be set aside on accoun of such statements la the jury room. J. A. Vipond has 80 hogs which wil average 400 pounds. Two weeks ag< he was in a quandary whether to sel at $3 or take his chances on cholera and a rise in price. He concluded tc wait and besides the increase in weigh in his porkers gets $1 a hundred more which amounts to a pretty good item on the lot, He sold yesterday at $4 the hogs averaging 410 pounds apiece Normal school matters are being talked in Algona considerably and ar rangeraents are being.made to. take hand in at-Des Moines when the bills are presented. Representative Mayno is devoting his attention to it, and bis position on the educational committees will enable him to exert a big influence It is thought certain that some new schools will be established at this session. We asked Charlie Winkle last week to paint off that .sign on bis wagon "Perfection Oil." But Charley pulled out a letter from the Standard oil headquarters which stated that while it might be possible that some old oil had found its way into the Algona tank heretofore, that hereafter none fcuVthi. freshest product should be dispensed in this neck of the woods, and he still has " Perfection" out }n b}g letters. There was some talk of asking the city council to resubmit the public li* brary proposition to a vote again this spring, The matter was not presented to the council, however, Saturday evening and nothing has been done. If it is resubmitted now it will have to be at a special meeting, as tbe council does not get together again until the last ol next month, and the election proclamation will be issued in a week or so. So many have asked what became of the continued story wh,io,b was pro* greasing to a climax in our columns sowe weeks ago, thai we feel obliged to tp exp}»}n. A fire in Pes Motoee took our patent ' the here, up' petition ifl Emmet coflnly ««s fclt the la» fe'qolres, in the salootf ^ lion ease. TtfeFe 1 was a hot con theanti^aloon forces failed to, r .-.enough fraudulent entries w cut the list below the necessary 65 vet cent. Geo. E. Clark6 returned to Esthervlllfe Monday to close up the remainder o the evidence which goes to show that the saloons have beeh violating the law by selling to minors, etd. The anti-saloon mett were again beaten* and Judge Quarton dissolved the injunctions. The diffefences existing among the members of the board of pension examiners are not adjusted. In tbfe'Bos- singham case Drs. Kenhefick and Tribon met and Dr. McCoy was hot present Dr, McCoy entered complaint with the pension deportment in Washington claiming thftt he used due diligenc< and did not attend because the meet ing wfts held in such a Way that h< Could not know of it. The departmeh. has Written to the other members and they have filed counter statements claiming 1 it was Dr. .McCoy's own ne gleet which kept him away. Whal will be the outcome remains to be seen, The Midland Monthly evidently has a big constituency in Kossuth county Although THE. UPPER DES MOINES made no personal effort to secure sub scrlbers It is one of the prize winners, and last week was surprised to be so notified. Besides those whose names we have forwarded many have sub scribed direct and mnny have sent by the other papers. The : Midland Is a credit to the state and has received generous recognition In this Athens oi the northwest. Last week in Des Moines Mr. Brighom informed us tha' the business was 40 per cent, better this year for the same time than It was a year ago. The Social Union program Friday evening drew another crowded house, and was fully up to the high standard the Social Union has set for itself. Mrs. F. D.
