The sale of C. H. Blossom's home' does not mean that he has any intention at present of leaving Algona. He is not wholly decided as to his future but has no plans for leaving. If Algona has to put up the papers for $25,000 for a normal school, a ways and means committee should be appointed at once. That is what the bill now in the legislature means. The Congregationalists Monday elected B. F. Reed president and Guy Grove treasurer of the society, Jas. Patterson was re-elected truste_e. No action was taken about carpeting the church. Marriage licenses have been issued to F. C. Renriecke and Emma R. Seeman, John C. Lollier and Bridget Muldoon, Frank Schneider and Magdalena Sauftner, Chas. Meyers and Catharine Meyers. Gen. Wright has notified Col, Cooke that he is reappointed on the governor's staff as inspector of small arms practice. This is a high compliment and endorsement of Col, Cooke's past services, Dr. Garfield seems likely to have a lame arm the remainder of his days. He has bad Dr. Charlton of Clear Lake and Dr, Schooler of Des Moines examine it. Otherwise he is slowly improving. ' Now it turns out tbat'the Union Shoe factory of Cbillicotihe, Ohio, has failed for $100,000, That was the factory that the Chicago inen represented who were planning to induct Algona into the shoe business, The cemetery association expects at its meeting Saturday to devise a plan for a sinking fund which will be available after all the lots are sold to provide for the care of the grounds, It is (v good plan. No work in the public schools has been more appreciated than the instruction in music, In the }ate examinations the pupils of rooros 9 and 10 averaged 85 pep cent, which is very unusual, Miss Ranks is doing good work.

The Opening Month of 1890 Has an Exceptional Weather Kecord. . The past month has been very unusual for this section, The temperature has averaged very much above normal, the weather has been mild, the roads d;-y and dusty, and the sun benevolent. Weather Clerk Pettibone says the average for the month is 21,8 degrees above zero, In 1895 January averaged only 10,9 above, in 1894 only 15 above, and in 1894 only 8,7 above. The warm and cold days for these years are as follows; January 1896 the lowest was 18 below on the 3rd, and the highest was 52 above on the 29th; January 1895, 18 below on the 27th, and 44 above on the 20th; January 1894, 24 below on the 24, and 49 above on the 13th; January 1893,18 below on the 27th, and 34 above on the 22d. A temperature of 52 above zero for a January day is certainly a very unusual occurrence. In the entire month there is not a day when the thermometer was below aero at 2 o'clock. The record for this hour is as follows: N . n Tnn Almvn 5^flV0 0 n.
