Hoy t's Trip to Chinatown has had as big a run as any burlesque of its kind in late years. It is laughable from beginning to end and will be put on by one of the best companies. At the opera house Thursday evening, Feb. 18. It is almost certain that this senatorial district will be cut up at this legislative session, and it is possible that Kossuth will be in a district by Itself. That would make lively politics. In any event Kossuth will be with one other county, The various committees for the annual bean supper were appointed last Wednesday and preparations for that event of the season are under headway. February .would not pnss so pleasantly now without the Grand Army celebration on Washington's birthday. Sheriff Samson arrested Chas. L. Miller, cit.y editor of the Sheldon Eagle, last week. Miller bought a printing outfit of Thos. Way of Britt and sold part of it without lifting the mortgage he had given. Miller gave bonds and will have a hearing the 14th of this month. All the people cnuld not get into the Methodist church Sunday evening for the union service, Bev. Sinclair preached an able sermon on Moses as i leader of the children of Israel. An other union meeting will be held in four or six weeks, at which Rev. Southwell vvilj, preach. Frank Bamsey seems to have left Kos suth for good. Various interested parties have .been busy dividing up what was left, not all of them getting what they expected. Mr, Roberts, the owner of the farm, has been in Algona several days the past week and is ad yertising a sale of the stock. Jim McLaughlin, Algona's second baseman in the ball team last summer died Monday evening at his home near Lu Verne of typhoid fever, His sister was lately married to J, A. Reagan ol the Armstrong Journal, He was popu lar in Algona and hts untimely death will be regretted by many friends. Henry Durant has th§ proof sheets for his book and is now correcting them. It is being published by one o the leading book houses of Chicago aqd will soon be issued, In paper covers it will sell for 25 cents and in cloth bind ing for 50 cents, We predict A large sale for it here where Mr, Durajjt is BO well known, A! dull thud was heard against t&e dopr of Edwin Blaokfovd's honje e, few evenings ago. On examination a re volver bu.Het was found. It b»4 spent its forge and did not strike hard enough. to enter tbe wooa, Ellison Blackford played detective ap4 found out that a neighbor had been footing at a dog that evening, January, JS9J, was a warmer month than the present January has been The lowest mark was two, degrees above zero and the month averaged 33.5 de greea, above. January, 1885, was the ppldest month to late yean- The raer oury was 83 degrees, pelpw, and the is?- , whole month averaged about baH a de rrncta nAlnur v.Ai*n " ' TOluffHhafihJ alftfffi thro* . he ffonl dtfOf of the toft) building and iull 4he tw« ropes in tti6 feat- of the all alternately fctf about 20 str"oke| ach, pause and if tire is in First wai-d giveoBe lab, Second wftrd two taps. _hlrd Wafd three" taps, and Fourth wftrd four taps." Hev. Stewart of Britt, who preached .j Algoha for Itev. Davidson some weeks ago, is to be Algona's memorial ay orator, He is a vigorous speakeis n old soldier, littd he successfully com* lines preaching with buying Jthd feed' tig Cattle and running an elevator. !ls address will be one of the-best. Al- gofia has ever had. Dr. Kennefiek had a bad sick spell ver Sunday, Saturday evening after javifig jiist taken a hot birth he was ailed into the country, and rigtlin was atled out In the middle of the night, fl the morning lie had a bud cold and ater in the day suffered a chtll. His it-other, J, P. Kehneflck, cattle Satur* ay from Belmbnd for a visit and has emained with him, The fire bell has been hung In the lew tower and now has the double ilapper attachment which will make he noise hereafter so unlike any other ver heard that no one cun mistake it. ?he bell is stationary and the two jlappers are worked with a lever. A eries of signals is being arranged by which anyone can tel^at once in which ward in town the fire is. Bev. Southwell snys it is not certain et that Evangelist Williams can j be iad in Algontv, but he hopes to get him. le says, referring to a statement about what Mr. Williams is paid, that he makes no charge whatever for his set- Ises but accepts whatever is offered. tfr. Williams is the ovungelist who aroused Esthervllle, and who had such 'ernarkable success at Eagle Grove a year ago. • Judge Thomas has decided that Minnesota parties cannot catch each other over in Kossuth and sue in our courts, upholding Geo. E. Clarke's position. Sullivan & McMahon are thinking of appealing to test this ruling. Unless they do and win the Elmore malprac- ilce case will not be tried in Algona. This question is a new one in the Iowa courts and all lawyers would be pleased ;o have a ruling by the supreme court. The school board met Monday even- ng. They are considering the advisability of submitting a proposition to ;he voters at the meeting next month for about $6,000 bonds to put up a four- 'oom school building between town and ;he Milwaukee depot. The present building is crowded and the board are nclined to believe that long time bonds would not be much of a burden now ihat the original bonds for the school tiouse are all paid. The normal school bill now proposed at Des Moines requires every town to file a deed with the state auditor of the property it proposes to turn over. It take a vote of the independent district to warrant the board . in deeding the present normal building and lots to the state, if the town decides to offer that property, and the authority to do this will doubtless be asked in the call for the school election which comes the second Monday in March. An old landmark at the Milwaukee depot is gone. Geo. Horning removed it bodily last week and loaded it on a car for Oklahoma. We refer to George's house. The old shop he left, but the house he knocked down and carried it along to set up again in his new home. From what we know of Oklahoma we should incline to the belief that George has acted wisely. A man down there don't have much but what he takes with him. One J. W, .Rumsey sought Marshal Willey yesterday and explained that some ten days ago he sent to a brother in Rhodes for money and that a $30 draft was sent. He did not get it but thought that one H. C. Johnson had received the letter at the postofflce here. Johnson has gone to Burt to work and it is not known yet what has come out of it. Rumsey went to the banks but could not find that Johnson had received any money on the draft. Supt, Hughes of this division of the Northwestern has gone to San Diego, and Assistant Aishton has been promoted to his place during his absence, and W, H, Groves becomes acting assistant, It is unlikely that Supt. Hughes can recover and this will make Mr. Aishton superintendent. There is not a more genial man in the railroad, business, and better*still he says that any improvement in the passenger service north of the main, line has got to include Algona. The Grand Array post and Woman's Relief Corps had a joint installation last Wednesday, Dr. Sheetz installed the men as follows; J, R, Laird, Cora.; Mr. Brace, S, V.; P. L, Slagle, J. V.; John Reed, quarter master; D. B. Avey, Adgt.; Dr. McCoy, surgeon; E. Tellier, O. of D.; Geo. Turner, O, of G, Mrs, Vincent installed the ladies as follows: Mrs, Stacy, president; Mrs. Dodge, S, V.;'Mrs, Tennant, J. V,; Mrs. Gilbert, Secy,; Mrs, Mason, conductor; Mrs. Reed, guard; Mrs. Tellier, chaplain; Miss Dodd, treasurer. A pleasant meeting was held. Members of. tbe city council do not hesitate to announce that a, new well and pump are things the city must bo* gin to figure on, Tbe water supply in the present well is inexhaustible, but enough water cannot be pumped to supply tbe town with such » puwp as can be put into it. They think a well could be put in the. bottom of the old well to reach tbe chief water supply at a few hundred dollars expense, Then with two pumps the city would be pro- tooted against accident, At present the whole town has to he cut off from the etandpipe to permit eyen the slightest repairs, kaft Thursday's daily papers had a report from iQWft F.allaJi'Qm, which 'it appeared thai qur old'time. $, q, -~ wibe fcttYgrn,e News K**™ ^$$ •——*• »v Vi say* His talk is ,. the vefv best evef heard in the court room It was a talk ibfct»d«g \ «>«• tminity good tti hear frotb the ben«*, and there should be more just likes it. It was a clear, concise and taahifestiy fair review ofthe entire case and the law bearing upon it, and valuable, suggestions to those engaged ifl the liquot traffic as well as to citizens who ai'e interested In temperance Work. He urged that all laws be observed equally and that all citizens help each other, ifl a quiet way, in the enforcement of all laws alike. ' 6eo. & Hamilton, who is chief of the fire company, has made ft report Which shows that Algona is getting a well organized and well equipped company. There are 20 members as follows. J» C. Anderson, A. H. Allen, Geo. Campbell, A. L. Calkins, A, P. Dai ley, f. E. Poster, Frnnk Burt, L. Horan, B. 0. Lewis, H, Norton. Hoe Neberga 1, Chas. Johnson, & Wilbur. Frank Willsoii, and H. Williams. The company a> readv have their apparatus in the new building and will begin a series of drills at once. A new wagon and some new hose will be added to the equipment, and the town will soon be amply protected. The report is a business document. C. D. Pettibone has mnde some comparisons to prove that spring weather don't much depend on warm or cold winter months. January, 1888, was cold. February had two inches of snow, March five inches, and April two Inches. January, 1891, was warm. But February had four inches of snow, and March seven inches. In 1888, February averaged 13 degrees above zero, March 20, April 41, May 49, June 67, and July 75. In 1891, February averaged 13 degrees above, March 23, April 48, May 67, Juno 67,6, July 67.6. Some say that we have had a good January, but we will pay for it in the spring. Mr. Pettibone says there is nothing in this theory. CHRISCHILLKS & HERBST have just received the firflt installment of their dress goods for the coming season. The selection includes novelties in colors, blacks in mohair and wool, a complete line of serges in all colors, and the finest assortment of low-priced novelties ever shown in Algona.

Doxsee's cooking school will be an event of the season. Hudson & Langdon still advertise canned goods at cheap prices. It looks springlike at Grove & SOD'S with fresh radishes, lettuce, celery, grapes, etc. Jas. Patterson has some fine apples at $2.60 a barrel. That is as cheap as they were last fall. Walker Bros.' flour that they are selling at 85.cents is the same flour they have handled for five years. Peter Winkel says he has 600 tons of ice up, so Algona has nothing to fear from an ice famine. Mr. Magnusson also has cut a lot. Last fall A. D. McGregor bought three car loads of fine furniture in one lot. It is all gone, even to that $45 table. That was sold Monday. • A handsome and complete little nickle plated steel range is in Doxsee's show window to be given away to some little girl. He tells how to get it in his advertisement. E. B. Cook has bought A. W. Moffatt's land business and the firm is now Dingley & Cook. Mr. Cook is one of the county's best citizens and' will do well as a land man. The big windows in Galbraith's are hung with some of the handsomest oar- pets ever shown in Algona. He has put in a very big .line of carpets and mattings this spring, Goeders advertises his annual February clothing sale this week, and all who want bargains will do well to visit him. He carries a big stock and is making heavy reductions in prices. Walter Stebblns has given up his lease of the Johns hotel at the. Milwa- kee depot, and J. J. Byan has moved in. He took possession Monday and will conduct a first class hotel. Corn is now worth 15 cents and oats 12, both with a chance for a cent more a bushel if extra, The tendency is for a gradual improvement in prices. Wheat is worth as high as 45 cents. Hogs took a tumble last week from $4 before shippers could sell. J. F. Lacy & Co. have three car loads at the depot holding them for the market to go up again. The best price now is $3.70. • The hard coal combine has succeeded in reaching an agreement and a raise in the price of $1 a ton is reported. Local dealers have not 'been officially notified and. coal is still at the old price, Peterson, the photographer, is Intro* ducing the new platinotype process of printing his photographs.

Remember they are at Algona, but they will come here and see you if you are thinking seriously of buying. NORMAL SOHOOL PROSPECTS. Senator Trewln Introduces a Bill That Will Interest Algona —The Register Says No Schools Will Be Established. Monday Senator Trewin opened the normal school issue at Des Moines, with a bill the terms of which are given below. Yesterday morning the Register commented on the matter and said: " The cities need not spend time or money agitating normal schools The present legislature is not apt to create any more state obligations, The expenditures are almost equal to the Income now, Including the $30,000 to $50,000 wasted on a code which is in bodily danger of going into the waste basket." Senator Trewin's bill as outlined by the Capital, which says it is endorsed by the normal school teachers committee, is as follows: It provides for the location by the legislature in joint as sembly, of five new normal schools Each school is to receive an annual ap propriation of $8,000; $6,000 to be used as a teachers' fund, and $2,000 for con tingent expenses. Each school must be in session at least 26 weeks every year, and must not charge its preferred pu pils more than $6 per term tuition and $1 per month contingent expenses. Pupils entering the school are required to sign a statement that they good faith to intend follow the" business teaching in Iowa. The directors, however, may admit others to the schoo! upon the payment of such higher tuition as they may fix. All the buildings and grounds required to accommodate 300 students in each school must be furnished by the towns securing the schools. They are required to put up deeds for the grounds and buildings, or if the buildings are not erected, then a bond that they will be erected, to cost at least $25,000 for each school. • THE WEEK'S MEETINGS.
