TEA * -' is the subject. 1 have just purchased the largest dssorttaeftt of Tea ever bought at ofte time in Algotta, I have been seven years in the grocery business, and I have never before been able to give as gobd QUALITY of tea for the price as I can on this shipment, 1 lb. 35c, or 10 ibs. $3, aftd I will guarantee that it is better than any 500 tea ever sold in Algona or northwestern Iowa; and If the tea is not as represented, money will be refunded. No one who drinks tea can afford to let this opportunity pass, as it won't last long. Block. James Patterson. P, S. I ^ ave a few sacks left of that famous flour so dearly • '. loved by all. A farmer remarked the other day (and he was willing to stake all he had on this) that our 650 flour was BETTER than any flour made in Algona. People know where they can buy the best for the least money. I am for business. Yours truly, JAMES PATTERSON.

The West Bend Advance says: Algona will entertain the editors at the summer meeting. When it comes to entertaining Algona will do tho act in proper shape. Marshal Willey arrested Ed James, the young man lately in jail charged with burglary atBurt, because he was found drunk on the street. He agreed to leave town and was turned loose. The pupils of the physics class in the public school expect soon to enjoy an outing in the way of a visit to some one of the engines of the city for the purpose of studying its mechanism while in operation. Geo. Holloway says tho north end Mrs will not conflict with the county fairs, and that tho north end will be here as usual at the county show. A fair turnabout is for the south end to attend the Bancroft races. The change in school books at the public school is going on. The board succeeded in making a trade whereby they got new and better books in even exchange for the old ones. Tha$ is as good as any one could ask. The high school class are already making preparations for commencement, There are 13 in the class and they graduate on the 13th, and still they have the record of being the luckiest class the school has had, Ambrose A. Call says that he shall list his corp again this spring. He is satisfied that fie got a larger yield last season than he would by ploughing and planting tho old way, besides which listing saves a considerable expense, Notice of the annual school election appears this week. It occurs Monday, March 9, The financial report shows that the levy is much smaller than ftfnet-ttt of Mrs. Aie*. Peddie, well kfaowft in Algona years ago as the (Sftttgfiter of F.

Amie Puegnet says a gun has been found In the bed of Swan Lake, where it has dried out, which is believed tohave been lost by someone from Algonasome 40 years ago. It is an old flint Jock, and hung on it were aomo old hand trmde wolf traps. There wns a charge in the gun of all sizes of shot. It is a curious relic.

Night Watch Hunter arrested one GilHngham last week for bning drunk and put him in that part of the county jail allotted to town offenders. Gillingham was pretty drunk but tlmt did not interfere with his smashing bis bed to pieces and with the remains prying the jail bars apart far enough to let him out. He is still enjoying the refreshing February air in freedom. Leonard Hohn started to take a load to the Hobart creamery last week. When he got to the top of the hill west of town he was taken with a chill and was unable to drive on or to turn back. He was out an hour before ho was found and has since been at death's door at his home. He was an old settler in Plum Creek township and for some years has lived in Algona. The relief corps ladies are doing a fine work with their sewing class Saturday afternoons. Last Saturday they had a lot of little girls, many of whom knew nothing of needle work, and taught them how to be of service to themselves and their families. All the little girls who want to learn to sew are invited to be present, especially those whose opportunities at home are limited. Ed. Fitzsiramons is reported as quite provoked at the suggestion made last week that his boom edition is like all the other outside booms for this county. ButEd. is not so provoked as he appears. For he laughs to himself all the while at the idea of Algona and the rest of the towns advertising themselves in a pamphlet bearing a Mason City imprint. That is a good way to advertise Mason City, tho best in the world, and that is what Ed. is doing. Emmetsburg was regaled with some amusing episodes in the Dr. Lacy suit for $301 against Kossuth county, which was tried there last week, the doctor getting a verdict for $235.50. Geo. K Clarke appeared for Dr. Lacy and County Attorney Raymond defended. The doctor had charged double mileage in the diphtheria cases as well as double fees, and the jury cut that out. Otherwise they found against the county. The case will be appealed as the board want to know exactly what authority township boards have. They hold that township trustees must call the county physician and not hire other doctors until he signifies that he cannot attend. Judge Quarton ruled against them. The supreme court will now explain the business. The annual bean supper brought $127 into the relief fund, which means that over 500 people sat down to the most elaborate banquet of the season. It was an enjoyable affair throughout, a grand rally of the veterans and of people from all parts of the • county, a pleasant memorial of one of our national holidays. After the tables were cleared the speechmaking began, including addresses by Capt. D. H. Hutchins and Mrs. Vincent, Revs. Sinclair and Southwell, and remarks by Eugene Tellier and Dr. McCoy, the latter introducing resolutions for international arbitration which were unanimously adopted.

Drake is expected for the chief address. The big Odd Fellows of the state will attend and it is to be a red letter affair for the order. In the society notes of the Sioux City Journal is the following item of local interest: Mr. and Mrs. A. F. Call entertained very beautifully on Tuesda-y evening in honor of Mrs. Call's cousin, Mrs. Ruben Warner of St. Paul. The rooms were decorated in lavish style with festoons of smilax, asparagus, palms, potted plants and cut flowers— roses, carnations and daffodils predominating. Mrs. Call received in black and white. Mi's. Warner wore a white evening gown. The guests were elegantly attired, many in evening dress, or with fancy light bodice worn with a skirt of dark material. Tables were arranged for progressive six hand euchre, each table bearing its own distinctive color. The score was kept by attaching knots of ribbon to a fancy ring, until in many cases the many and various colors blended to form a ribbon flower which decked its wearer. Mrs. W. H. Dildine was awarded alargoand elegantly decorated plate; Miss Ingerson, half a dozen decorated bread and butter plates; Mrs. MoLaughlin, embroidered doylie; Mr. H. F. Clough. leather bound copy of Whittier; Mr. T. A. Black, Burns' poems, and Mr. John B. Perkins, Whittier in blue and white binding.

ONE FABMEB'8 EXPERIENCE. The following letter from an Illinois farmer of experience explains itself. It is called out by a recent article in THE UPPER DES MOINES on the importance of manufacturing grain into beef, and butter on the farm. HARBISON, III., Feb. 10.—To the Editor; I suppose a friend sent rae a copy of your paper the other day in which there was B, piece advocating the manufacturing by farmers of their coarse grain into beef, pork-, poultry, butter, etc, While the article was written by a man of somewhat extended observation it seems to me tp lack some of the detail and probable gain of such a course in Iowa. As I am one of those peculiar people who learn only by ex prjencej should Hke to give your Iowa readers some of my experience in that direction. I commenced 'some year* ago on what was called a poor farm by feeding a few cattle and 8gur> Ing as clowjy an wwoible I was only able to make the fmllng yard corae out even.

THE UPPER DES MOINES noted last week the suicide of John Coffen at his home in Humboldt. The Burt Monitor says his brother Clark and wife went at once on receipt of a telegram. The burial occurred Thursday. The Hum- boldt.Independent says of the sad occurrence: A d^eath painful in its various bearings, occurred in this town Tuesday morning. Mr. John Coffen, who has heen subject to low spirited conditions, took a large dose of morphine Monday evening and although medical assistance was rendered at once and the patient apparently left out of danger, secondary effects or a second dose put in an appearance Tues day morning and all efforts to revive him proved fruitless and he died abou noon of that day, He leaves a wife am three grown up children to mourn his departure. The funeral occurred thi afternoon from the Congregationa church and the remains were buried in Union cemetery. The Republican says: John H. Cof fen secured thirty grains of morphine and took them with suicidal intent at 9 o'clock Monday evening, Feb. 17, Prs Welch & Kinney were immediately called and did all in their power to savi his life. There seems to be some dif forenco in opinion as to Mr. Coffen's condition. The doctors ceased working over him Monday night, as he was thought to be on the road to recovery, In the early hours he was taken vio Jently worse. The doctors believe he took another dose of morphine, while the family say it was impossible, for they were with him the entire time. However he grew rapidly worse and died at 12:45 Tuesday last. Mr. CoN fon'e last act is greatly deplored by his relatives and acquaintances in general, He wag a nian who nwde friends where- ever he went, being of ft happy disposition, jovial manner and generous to a fault. Anyone in need of sympathy or & friend never applied in vain to John Coffen. LEGAL. -VXV^XXN^N^N^- ADMINISTRATION NOTICE.
