Gardner Cowles has rented the room now occupied by Bowyer and Studley to Kraft Bros., who will put in a clothing store its soon as they get possession, which will be April 1. One of the firm comes from Brooklyn and one from Os- ceoln, and they will put in,a new stock. Dr. McCoy has a letter from Capt. Yeoman of Fort Dodge in which he says he will try and lecture during March sometime, the proceeds to go to the relief fund of the post. Capt. Yeoman was one ot the capturers of Jeff. Davis and his lecture is on that episode. The cemetery association elected the old officers at its Saturday meeting and adjourned until the first Saturday in April, when a plan will be adopted for securing a permanent fund for caring for tho grounds. C. D. Pettibone and Geo. E. Clarke were selected to draft such plan. Preparations for the benn supper go rapidly. The speaking will be by Mrs. Vincent, D. H. Hutchins, and Revs. Sinclair, Southwell, and Landis. Music by the .glee club and other attractions will add to the entertainment. The regular bean supper will be as usual. D. H. Setchol met with a painful accident Monday. While engaged in splitting a chunk of wood he struck the ax in the wood with a maul. The helve of the ax broke and flew up giving him a hard blow in the face. No serious damage was done but his face is badly bruised. Jas. Mericle has sued Capt. Dodge for $1,000 damages, Geo. R, Cloud acting as his attorney. This suit grows out of the criminal prosecution against Mericle on a note deal, which was heard in last fall's court. Mericle was arrested and now wants damages for false imprisopment. Sheriff Samson was in Minnesota to claim $200 reward for the capture of Sam Green, the horse thief who left a stolen team at Ledyard. Minnesota offers a state reward in such cases and our sheriff will get it. The money has not been received, but he has taken all the needed preliminary steps. The county board met yesterday and went over the report of the committee appointed to examine the various office records. A few other matters were attended to, the Republican and Courier being Appointed official papers. The Bancroft Register's request to be a third official paper was laid over. Frank Bamsey's untimely departure for parts unknown has left a legal tangle for the coming term of court. B. W, Haggard has a clajm of $114 upon the stock left, and took possession.. Mr, Roberts, owner of the farm, has put up a bond and will sell the stock as advertised. The merits of the claims will be debated by Geo. R. Cloud and Bonar & Fellows. Kossuth couHtjr !§ entitled to ten delegates la the state convention which bleSta tiejfi ifr&Htb. They will act in the Tenth district cauais to select two district delegates l» the flalfdtial con* vention, and la the stale convention to select four delegates at large. Chairman Grose has Called the couhty convention to meet Tuesdny, Feb. 25, a week from tiext Tuesday. Caucuses afe recomraehded to be held on the2lst. The Fort Dodge Messenger gets the Algona Ryans mixed up aud says: 'Our former townsman and warm politician, J. J. Ryan of Algona, has taken possession of the hotel at that place. Fort Dodge fHetids vistting Algona will undoubtedly find him as congenial a host as he isafrlebd," It is another Ryan that bus the hotel, but We have no doubt that Fort Dodge friends will have no ^ difficulty in getting cigars from their former townsman bycominar up. Algona has been lucky several times in catching fine theatrical companies which would not ordinarily coine here. Hoyt's Trip to Chinatown aggregation was secured in thin way. It is out making: one*night stands for two weeks in Illinois and Iowa to fill in a broken engagement in Chicago. After,that, its time is all taken witn Week and two- week engagements in the cities. This company comes at as big cost as any Algona hns ever had and In its line is unsurpassed. The First National bank bid too low on the national bonds. At the suggestion of its New York bank it bid $1.08, that being thought plenty high enough. , But when the bids were opened It was found that $1.101 was the lowest bid that would get bonds. The bond sale was a much greater success than anyone anticipated, and the high rate bid for them only makes more clear the big steal the former private sale to the Morgan syndicate was. That sale brought only $1.04 to the treasurer. The king of all farce comedies. Hoyt's "A Trip to Chinatown," will be seen ot the opera house, Thursday, Feb. 13, with the beautiful Miss Laura Bigger as the " widow" and the inimitable comedian, Mr. Burt Haverly, as " Weiland Strong." The. management has surrounded the brilliant stars with a cast of exceptional excellence, who will render the songs, dances, etc., which appear in the play, on the same scale TO DISMISS JAM TOH( B ,o,m tot the farmers' Institute }8 flow Neatly Complete-Secoiul Week in March.

A first class performance can be looked for. The rumor grows that early in March Algona is to get that morning passenger train south on the Northwestern. It has been in the papers, at Webster City, but they only credit the train to Eagle Groye. This is a mistake evidently for Supt, Aishton has said that Algona should not be left out. It is likely that the train may start from Algona. It will go south to Des Moines in the morning and north in the evening, leaving here about 6 o'clock and returning probably quite late. It will give Algona magnificent train service. Three different parties have interested themselves in finding the present residence of N. J. Skinner. They have located him in Galveston, Texas, and have prepared interrogatories for him to answer in a three cornered suit, in which all three parties charge him with wrongdoing. Wm. Becker, who lives near Germania, gave a note and mortgage to Skinner. He alleges that the same have been altered and are not as he made them. Skinner took the note and mortgage for Mrs. Boals, and then sold them to W, B. Carey. Becker is represented by E. V. Swott- ing, Mrs. Boals by F. M, Taylor, and Mr. Carey by Clarke & Cohenour and E. H.,Clarke. All three want Skinner to tell what was actually done and the interrogatories have been sent to him. ONTARIO canned goods are the'stand- ard. Grove & Son, The program for the farmers 1 institute, which meets the second week in March, at the court'house, has been partially •prepiired. The topics which will be discussed, as fur its speakers have been secured, are given below and promise an interesting time. Henry Wallace of DOS Moirtes, long-time editor of the Homestead and now publishing the Farm and Dairy, will be present throughout the sessions and assist in the discussions. In the evening he will give a lecture on Foreign Agriculture. Two years ago he traveled extensively in'Ireland and on the continent, and his lecture has been enthusiastically received everywhere. Secretary Butler has also written to State Dairy Commissioner Boardman, but as yet has received no reply. The local program covers such questions of importance to tho farmers as tame grass culture, saving corn fodder, road work in the county, varieties of fruits suitable to our climate, besides all the various phases of slock and dairy matters. A very important feature will be Dr. Sayers' discussion of hog cholera and tuberculosis and what veterinary science has to offer. Other papers will be devoted to general matters of interest. The program as far as completed is as follows. The arrangement of topics and hours of meeting, as well as the evening meeting, will be announced later: THE PKOGIUM, Tamo Grasses: What Kinds and How to Manage Them Profitably in a System of Rotation»-C.

Sheriff Samson went to Des Moines with Clerk Grose last week to meet with the sheriffs. All the county officials met in Des Moines. Mr. and Mrs. W. C. Wheeler of Albion, Iowa, have been visiting their daughter, Mrs. Guy Grove. They are thinking some of coming to Algona to make their home. because they think it would increase the efficiency of the courts to have the clerik's term longer and relieve him of so much time spent every two years in fixine up his fences. KJIssuth was well represented at the Boone editorial meeting. Those going were Mr. and Mrs. M. Starr, V. S. Ellis, W. F. Laidley, J. W. McMullen, and Harvey Ingham. Thos. Sherman and J. G.

They all endorsed the proposed plan of extending the term of all county officials to four years as in Wisconsin and Illinois.
