Sunday there was a bouncing new boy at Mr. Jenkinson's. S. S. Sessions and S. E. McMuhon had a legal tilt last Friday at Sexton. One man wanted $10 of another and the justice gave him a verdict for 10 cents, and divided the costs. It Is rumored along the Northwestern line that a new time schedule will jo into effect Sunday. What it will be 3 not known, nor is there anything certain about any change. Mayor Haggard wants everybody to take a look at the alley in Ma neighborhood and act as occasion suggests. Spring is here, and dirty alleys breed disease, bad smells, and they look bad. Rev. H. Cordner is now in Plattville, Wls., and the latest report from there states that the meetings are taking on added power each day, and that a score of young people are going forward each night. D. W. Pratt sent us a handsomely gotten up invitation to the' graduating exercises of the American College of Dental Surgery at Chicago, which occurred Monday. Mr. Pratt was one of the graduates.

The revived branch of the W. C. T. U. has elected officers as follows: Mrs. F. D. Calkins, president; Mrs. Goodner, vice president; Miss Nellie Hamilton, secretary; and Mrs. Cheever Hudson, treasurer. The society has a full membership. Rev. Miller, the Episcopalian rector, is located with his wife and baby in the house west of J. F. Lacy's, and is in full charge of the society in Algona. Services are now held regularly, and Rev. Miller is well liked by his congregation. Miss Jennie Pettibone has been chosen to succeed Mrs. Mart. Weaver in the public schools, she having resigned. Miss Pettibone has been for years one of the best teachers in the county and the Algona schools are fortunate in getting her. Harry Dodge and J. L. Button got to discussing an old note deal one day last week, and in the end Harry slapped Button. An arrest followed and the case was taken from ' Squire Clarke on a change of venue to 'Squire Taylor. Harry's fine and costs amounted to some $13. The appraisement of the school lands was so high that only two quarters were sold last Wednesday. Henry Klindt bought one quarter at $20.50 an acre and Archie Hutchison took one at $20. The remainder of the two sections is unsold. It was all appraised at $20 but one quarter. ise of a valuable conference among the medical men of the state. W(s hote that Dr. Shore is on the committee of arrangements. Also that tuberculosis and the danger of infection through the use of milk is to be thoroughly discussed. At the opening meeting Rev. Father Nugent offers prayer, and Hon. Sidney Foster makes a welcoming address. There ard seven sections in the meeting, and each section has a full list of topics. It will be a meeting of value to everybody, The school board have made a good change. Hereafter new teachers in all the rooms but the primary arid the two high school rooms will get $3(5 a month the first year, $37.50 the seconds $40 the third, $42.60 the fourth, and $45 the fifth. If they have done graded work in other schools or have excep^ tlonal fitness the board reserves the right to vary the rule. This puts the new teachers on smaller wages than formerly and gives the most expert* enced higher wages, the total being about the same as at present. In the primary and high school rooms the board have to make special contracts and this rule does hot apply. A tramp went through a long rigmarole Saturday at Jas. Patterson's to get a 10 cent plug of tobacco, He came in, claimed to be a new comer to the county, left his overcoat by the stove, ordered over $4 of groceries including the tobacco, and went out to join his wife who was buying dry goods. Presently he came back and asked if the goods were done up, and had a plug of tobacco thrown out to put in his pocket. Taking his overcoat he went out again and has never been seen since. Mr. Patterson says he was well dressed and was a pleasant talker. The wonder to him is that he did not take more tobacco while he was at it. The Algona Cemetery association met Saturday. Beginning next year half the net income will hereafter be put into a sinking fund for the permanent improvement and care of the grounds. The following resolution was adopted: "Resolved that the resident owners of all lots in the cemetery be required to keep the same up in proper condition by at least mowing the grass thereon and cutting the weeds from time to time as they may need; and that upon their failure so to do, the association is hereby authorized so to do, and to charge the same against the said lot owners.

Miss Cramer's is too crowded for work, and change will be made. The Western Economist has fine halftone engravings of Senator Funk and Representative Mayne in connection with their work in securing the passage of the new building and loan association law, It speaks very highly of the services of both. The State Register also elves considerable space to Mr, Wayne's speech on the insurance combine, Bert Edmonds rode one of the new wheels, with the handlebar behind him, in a race at Seymour, ind., last week, It was 11} miles up hill and down and he made It in 34* minutes, beating eight fast men on other wheels SA minutes, The new wheel is called the Tirnms, and all the riders admitted at the end of the race that it is the coming wheel for speed.
