The city council meets Saturday evening. The wtMofB. B. Clarke in Letts Creek is quite sick. Dr. Garfield gets on slowly and ia still confined mostly to the house. The wind yesterday brought back the dirt Saturday's wind took away. S. E. Grove's hands are said to have been burned to the bone at the Wesley fire. There will be a teachers'examination Friday and Saturday at Supt. Reed's office. Judpe Quarton will be at homo till week from Monday, when he opens court at Estherville. The Wesley Reporter showed com mendable enterprise in getting out an extra telling about the big fire. John Elwell was before the Insane commissioners Monday, but nothing was found seriously wrong with him. Drs. Sheetz andKennefick were down to Irvlngton Sunday to see Dr. Arm strong, who IB having a serious time. Algona is harboring a lot of tough citizens. The city authorities woulc do well to indulge In a spring clearing, R. A. Palmer says he will build a new cigar factory building for Water house & Schu as soon as he can begin work. P. G. Pettlbone, the Bancroft brother of C. D. and S. H. Pettibone of Algona, has been quite dangerously sick, but is slightly better. Evangelist Williams writes to Rev. Southwell that Evangelist Cordner, who is to be in Algona next month, is an exceptional man in the work. The Bnncroft Register says it will review Henry Durant's book nexl week. The book is on sale at all our neighboring towns and should be widely read. Fred. Kuhn, the young man who was run over north of town last week, was not expected to live Saturday, but has since improved rapidly. He was very seriously injured. The L. M. B. Smith building Is being refitted and the O. K. lunch room will be moved there as soon as it is ready. Mr. Allen wants more room than he has at present. Archie Hutchison got a Kossuth plat book for $6 from a man who had bought it and found he didn't need it, It is worth the full $12,60 to Archie or to any other land man. Col.

Kossuth's harvest will be something to tell about this fall, James Patterson is figuring on building a home on the lot east of J, R. Jonee. where the old Vaughn house now stands, He will build for himself, but probably not until next season. Mr. Kennedy, the Milwaukee tele- rraph operator who bad Jerry Callaban up for threatening mischief, JB over at Sexton, and Algona. has a new operator. Jerry is with ws as usual, The St. Augustine Weekly News says J. H. MoNall was so pleased with St. Augustine that be made a valuable purchase of property and has already built i residence and many improvements on t. Friday a hearing was had in a case eUwQ farmer*, Simpson and to remove obstructions to a ghway, The judge found tbat the fb,py had RQfc bee« legally iioefl, to .« B ... IhS teaft or Ms trfethods to which the ttsoal fastidious could object, and I can see continually fresh evidences of Ihe blessed results of bis trork ia tins place." 3. B. Elwell is circulating a subscription to rdise money for a Methodist church to go up this season near the northeast corner of Sec. 26-9t, 2», ih Buffalo tfewnship* to be called the Elwell Methodist church. A galooti case was to hare been heard from Erometsburg Friday, but Mrs. Stamback, an interested party, was sick and unable to attend. Judge Quarton granted a temporary injunction until a hearing can be bad. Mrs. Palmer, state organizer of the W. C. T. II., spoke twice in Algona Sunday, and organized a branch society Monday, She represents the national, or Miss Willard society. The Mrs. Poster society is said to be dwind Hng out. The biggest transfer of real estate on record occurred Saturday. It was conducted by Wind & Co., and if we are not mistaken a large quantity of Kossuth soil is now owned over in Illinois. Nobody ever saw more good dirt on the go before. J. M. Farley and his brother from Paducah. Ky., were in Algona one day last week. Geo. E. Boyle came with them. The three were boys together. Mr. Farley's brother is a man of means and was talking some of making Whil- lemore his home. Manager Blossom is still in correspondence with the Keene company and it is possible that a date will be arranged. Algona was a little late in the race and it may not be possible. But the last word was that they might make it for April 11. The old gentleman Ash at Wesley, now 74 years old, fell on a scantling Monday and broke a rib and otherwise injured himself. Dr. McCorwack was over to see him and says he is getting on well. He weighs 240 pounds and the fall was quite serious. Marriage licenses have been i.tsuec to Carl Bressler and Erailie Hictler, M. E.

The Lund grain elevator has been sold and April 1 Mr. Lund will retire from the grain and coal business. He has traded with H. L. Kimball of Burt taking Mr. Kimball's fine farm. Mr! Kimball will move to Algona and will soon be established in a fine business. There are no new developements in the Northwestern train service. The last report was that the company, after getting out its new schedule, was hav ing a tussle with the United States mail service about it. When this is settled we shall expect that new train, The defense of young Johnston o; Harrison township, charged with rape, fell out, and he pleaded guilty Friday. Judge Quarton inquired about him anc found that he is not sound minded anc probably is diseased, and sentenced him to two years. He was taken Mon day. Twenty farmers were in Sullivan & McMahon's office Saturday explaining that they didn't want the Kossuth county plat books they had signed for and asking what to do. They tell various stories of how they came to sign their names and some of them wil fight. The Republican criticizes Henry Durant's use of English in his book and in doing so says it is " unconventional." Mr. Durant calls our attention to the fact that there is no such word in the dictionary as unconventional. The tight shoe seems to bo on our contemporary. Two men were caught out of the Germania gang of drunkards and fighters reported last week. They were fined $25 each and costs, 'Squire Ray mond going north to prosecute. The others left town, and it ia to be hoped for good. Germania has been disgraced long enough by these drunken brawls Congressman Dolliver sends out notice that an examination will be held at Fort Dodge, April 15, for a naval cadet at Annapolis, Young men between the ages of 15 and 20 are eligible. A cadet and an alternate will be selected. Here is a chance for some bright healthy Kossuth boy to secure a free education. The $5,000 suit brought by J. J. Watson of Emmetsburg against Geo. Schneider of Wesley, for failure to take a piece of land and pay for it, has been dismissed by the plaintiff. And the $5,000 damage suit brought by Schermerhorn against the Bancroft hank [3. R. Morehouse and others for hav Ing him arrested out in Montana has been settled, Two all-around hard cases, Jo. Weston and Al, Swanson, had a woman in their room in the old L.

It is pretty well settled that Algona Will have a $5,000 tile factory this spring. Mr. Huey, an Illinois tile maker, has tested our clay and will come out and begin business. A stock company will be formed, of which Geo, Hamilton will be a principal member Mr. Bwey w m have charge of the plant, It wlJJ probably be located be* >ween the two depots, Messrs. A. D.

Attorneys Bonar and Swelling presenting Ibe issues. Charlie Stewart is owning « billiard hall in tfce S. C. Spear building. There was a report that the city authorities bad closed bis poker rooms. but it seems to have been unfounded. TBE UPPER DBS MOEJES is still C»M- oiis to know how it is that a man like Charlie cad be arrested for crime* es- cftpe an officer, and then come bach and settle down in a place like Algona to the same old practices nnd nothing be said about it. There mast be a big bole in the law that lets sueb cases as that through. The case against Heath in the Burl shooting scrape has been dismissed by County Attorney Raymond. Stelser and bis wife, the two important witnesses, after proving conclusively that thev were sorrv baggage, skipped out of Burt, and it'was hardly worth while to put the county to expense in a prosecution thus weakened. It would seem that out of a public shooting of such a sensational character as Burt enjoyed, some one ought to be caught in the net of the law. But it is now generally believed that the wrong man was prosecuted, and that Stelser would have been a fitter subject for the peniten tiary. ' _ ___ DR. QtnNX, the optician, will be at Dinglfy & Pugb's store the coming week, March 30 to April 4. JAMES PATTERSON' is paying 8 cents for eggs. DON'T let anyone lead you astray on the tea question.
