A little girl enlivens W. E. Brown's home at the Milwaukee depot since Sunday. Horace Wheeler, an old resident of Union township, is very low with consumption. A. L. Hyde, Algona's one time jeweler, was in town Monday. He is going to open a store in Des Moines. J. J. Ryan talked at a Mason banquet Monday on "Why Everybody is Not a Democrat." He, made a witty speech. Prof. P. H. Slagle was unanimously elected principal of the public school at Strawberry Point for the third year. What has become of the Social Union? 'It has been dormant for three months. How would it be to call a meeting and reorganize? . H. L. Kimball, who is in charge of the newly bought Lund elevator, has purchased the house east of J. E. Stacy's, but will not move in till'fall. The Sterzbach-Cady orchestra has disbanded for the summer. It has had a good winter and has given the best music of any orchestra that has played in these parts. Our Lotts Creek correspondent says that the sub-directors there have decided to not give the school teachers any holidays. They evidently regard school teaching a picnic in itself. Marriage licenses have been issued to Fred. Tiede and Wilhelmina Klan- eitter, Geo. C. Olson and Carrie L. Sorrensen, Wm. Myers and Josie Hegarty, Jas. H. Waburton and Harriet V. Noblo. A number of Grand Army men are planning to go to Cedar Rapids for the state encampment, which opens April 28. A half fare rate has been given by the railroads and a fine program is arranged. There is a well defined rumor that there will be a change in the local board of pension examiners as a result of the recent misunderstanding over the Bossingham case. No details are obtainable, The school board has elected Miss Myrta Putsch to assist in managing the 97 tots in the primary department. She baa been teaching in the county schools and comes with very high recommendations, THE UPPER DES MOINES is able to report now from a fancy self registering thermometer, and to state that the mercury was up to 79 Saturday and to 77 Sunday, which with the heavy rains and moist air made it exceedingly warm. J.A.Keller and J. C, Baker, two young men from the north end, will have a hearing Friday before 'Squire Taylor charged with selling property on which the sheriff had le'vied an attachment. They deny the charge and E. V, Swetting will defend. The ladies' sewing school for the little girls is held every Saturday, Last Saturday there were 80 in attendance learning, to sew, The time given by the ladies to the instruction, of the little girls, who have no other opportunity to leavn, is well spent in a most practical work of benevolence, Rey. Landis last 'Sunday joined A, H. Allen and Mies Ida Bartell in marriage at the Haokman home in Cresoo. Art, is the popular 0. K. lunoh man and tne bride is highly spoken of, They will soon be at home in their new restaurant rooms which are being handsomely fitted up in the I* M.

We can fit you with our special sizes and make the prices satisfactory too. Yours truly, Durdall&Co. P. S.—We bought 200 dozen heavy weight Overalls from a factory that was '' long" on overalls and '' short" on cash, at almost our own price. Any dealer will ask you for the same kind 75 to 85 cents. You can get them from the New England for -*SbS cents. as first mate. Rev. Greenshields of Burt preached the funeral sermon and the remains were buried in the Buffalo Fork cemetery. The citizens of Wesley took action in the case of Albert Elwell, who was before the commissioners on insanity some weeks ago, and Deputy Sheriff Cosgrove brought him over Saturday for another examination. It was decided to send him to Independence, and he was put in the city cell to await leaving time. Here he broke a chair and with one leg broke, the jail locks and escaped. He was recaptured up near the Catholic cemetery on his way back to Wesley. Everybody has noticed the mound in the road just north of the Call bridge. It used to be in Mr. Call's field and was very conpicuous. It wascutdown when the road was changed and an old skeleton was unearthed. This is the second skeleton that has been found, and C. D. Pettibone intends to make a careful examination. Mr. Call believes that the mound is a relic of the prehistoric race, and that the beginniug-of the soft water pond was made by taking the dirt for these mounds. The results of an investigation will be watched with interest.' Burt had quite a sensation Thursday. Jas. Hunt's father, aged 83 years, and his wife, aged 76, live by themselves, and Thursday morning a casual caller found him lying by the door in an unconscious condition with his clothes on while she was also on the floor unconscious but wearing only her nightdress, Everything was done for them and Saturday he was brought to consciousness, and Monday she began to be able to account for herself. . No traces of poison can be found and the generally accepted theory now is that both happened to be taken sick at the same time. Neither can remember anything about what happened after they ate supper. They were married last winter and have lived quite happily together, In the destruction of the old cigar factory building Aigona loses another landmark. The building was built in 1866 by Ambrose A, Call, the raising occurring July 26, The lumber was sawed in J. E. Blaokford's mill which stood where Guy Grove now lives, and is as sound today as it was when first out. Lewis Hi and John G. Smith moved' their store into it and also had the postofflce there. Geo. R. Woodworth succeeded them, and Smith & Butterfield's hardware was once there. The first Masonic lodge was organized in the hall above, and for years Geo, E. Clarke's law offices were there, The first sign ever used in Aigona was put up on this building by Smith Bros,, and read "Store." The old home-made lath are quite curiosities now, .
