Farmers' Exchange, South ol court bouse, Algona, Iowa. (Successor to P. fc. Lund,] IN C $ted and Soft THE LOCAL FIELD. P. H. Tesper's boose is getting new paint.

New paint adorns Grove & Son and Frank Winkel's business fronts. Sheriff Samson was up at Estberville Monday for business and to visit. A. M. Coan will superintend tbe building of Gardner Cowles' new borne. The opera bouse bas been rented by a Wizard Oil companr for a week in May. Congressman Dolliver speaks at Spirit Lake on tbe Fourth. Will Algona celebrate again? J. 3. Ryan says Boies will carry Iowa for free silver, that any man who can see a cyclone can see that. Platt and McCIellan are building Jerome Finnegan's new borne south of town, a big two-story bouse. Jas.-Orr was papering in P. Kain's house last week. Mr. Kain bas one of tbe pleasant places in Algona. Tbe foundation is in on East State street for tbe McNall shops and they will be moved across tbe street. Cbas. Godden set fire to a straw pile Saturday and tbe flames got away from him, burning up the river bridge southeast of Burt. Tbe Bancroft Register says A. Casslar has left for Oklahoma. He got as far as Algona but last week was spellbound down here. Lumber is on tbe ground for the Zanke residence. It will cost about $1,500 and will be an addition to tbe street. Shadle is building it. Plans are made for enlarging the rink building twenty feet to bold tbe people at the revival meetings. The work will be done nt once. Hogs staid up to S3 a little while last week, but are off again. This morning's Register reports falling prices in Chicago on all kinds of produce. The Algona shooting tournament comes next Tuesday and the prospect is that it will be ac enjoyable event. It will bring a lot of good shots together. W. H. Ingham writes that it has rained all but three days since be went to Washington. And he doesn't say anything about the rain not being wet oyer there. Tbe Odd Fellows met at their hall Sunday afternoon in force to observe their anniversary. Rev. Laidley of Bancroft preached an able and instructive sermon, Lightning struck tbe big church in Prairie yesterday morning, tearing the tower badly and knocking out the foundation, Big damage is done. The building is insured, As tbe Wesley Reporter sees it: "It is seldom a new member of a legislative body scores as much prominence as Mr. Mayne bas. His brief record is an honor to himself and Kossuth county," Mrs, Fred. McCall has been confined to her home for several weeks past with illness, Friends will be pleased to learn thftt she is now BO much improved as to be up part of the time. Nearly if not quite four of rain baa fallen in April, It has all come )n gentle showers, with warm sunshine }n between and never have green things bad a better start in tbe cpunty. A big auction sale washed in Buffalo Friday of the effects of tbe late Henry t^njpreaux, who whs killed two weeks ago accidentally, P, A. Haggard conducted it, and says good; prices were realized, J, w, Sullivan went to Port Podge Monday to defend a Webster county man in a Hnd title gontest, The suit began yesterday and will contJwtie today pp longer, It involves a considerable " D, H,getoheUc:a]l8o«r attention to the teefc that ewe of the boyp are killing, little birds with pea sbpatere, steal" gi, ,ej<o. f b§ ijoyg §Ua»l4 give rds. » $ift:88e» They m% QW ol if*, float test tit the He is no oifaerpliKe. iMNI te factory will go fat, _ Last Tno«d*y tbe ReUly, Who died i* tfgiuk, ««t« broogbt to Atgom UaA tetartni ia tbe cemetery here.

They bare 25 singers on tfee sf*ge mad fire musicians in tbe otrc&estr*. It is the largest and best opera that ever visited Algoa*. Ftall notices wil! be giren nest ireek. Banker Lenander was down frtsa Bancroft Monday. He says that at least four shooters will be down ttext week for the tournament to contest. One day last week be got 49 oat of 50 targets, part doubles. It will bother the best of them to beat tbat record. Tbe Wicwam Is to bare a freight elevator. It is big enough to take a double carriage op stairs and the second story will be used exclusively for carriages. Tbecarpenters were patting it in Monday, Tbe Wigwam has a car load of carriages at tbe depot waiting. Ed. FitzsimmODS did not get far last week in exposing the Mason City boom edition. He received word from Mason City that the firm bad reconsidered bis claim, and be accordingly went on and helped make collections. Ed., bow* ever, let the truth oat while he was at it. Among tbe tramps caught last week was a boy who cried bitterly. He says tbe tramps persuaded him to go with them with stories of building a raft and floating down tbe Mississippi. It seems they go through the country getting boys to join them with fairy tales of ease and luxury. Evangelist Cordner arrived Monday and tbe meetings are progressing with much enthusiasm. Tbe rink was crowded Sunday evening for our local pastors and will not half bold tbe people. Mr. Cordner has set no time to leave and will be here as long as needed. He is a bora evangelist. Dr. Sayers received notice Monday of bis reappointment as assistant state veterinarian. When Dr. Stalker was superseded it was not certain tbat any of bis assistants would be retained. But tbe new state veterinarian has decided to keep Dr. Sayers, which is a complimentary recognition of bis service and Standing. Architect Conner bas been making tbe plans for Geo. W. Hanna's elegant new residence to go up at LuVerne. They have been accepted and work will begin soon. Mr. Hanna is going to have one of tbe handsomest homes in Iowa. It will be complete in every detail and would be an ornamenj, to any city in the state. Col. Harry Wilkins came from Des Moines to inspect Company F last Monday evening, and Gen. Rule, Major Kirk, Capt. Dyke and Maj. Smith were here from Mason City to visit Col. Cooke and to watch inspection. The company showed up pretty well considering that a captain has not yet been chosen, and tbe inspection was a success. The Mason City boom edition people have sent A. L. Peterson a draft for about half his bill for photographs taken for them. He has acknowledged receipt and talks of suing for the balance. He took a lot of excellent photographs, but cheap cuts, cheap ink, cheap paper, and cheap press work won't make a good photograph into a good half-tone reproduction. Geo. Holloway of Bancroft had nerve enough to buy Union slough at §12.50 an acre, and has made his stake, There were ], 200 acres in the batch and it has been on the market for some time, but everybody was afraid of it. George took it and bas sold nearly all of it at an advance of from $1 to $6 an acre. George will make several thou sand dollars, and no one will begrudge him the good luck. Geo. R. Cloud has been in Emmetsburg some time trying a peculiar case. Geo. Bookman, editor of the West Bend Advance, was at one time agent for a wire fence firm in Des Moines. When he quit work they claimed they had overpaid him S200 and sued to get it back. Mr, Cloud and Barney Kelley were for Bookman and Mr. Paschal of Des Moines appeared for plaintiff, The case was decided in Bookman's favor after a long contest. Tbe ditch case at Humboldt occupied nearly all of last week, It was tried to Judge Thomas, who decided that Geo. E. Clarke's client bad the right, of it, . *** lhat tnetftd ditches did not tend to n««s* tb* discharge of water op^oln- i*e i»ad betow. He introduced 20 #it- fMsesee this point and the decision teUS oat ibis tteory. About 60 wit- mm& wefC examined. D. f. Coyle of Ftirt Dodge was tbe opposing attorney. ft* wwnbefs of the Woman's Library Aid society bare secured the e*f- riees of Mrs. Emily Ruth Carpenter of Gbkftfo, *bo will give them a talk on art at Memorial hall, Saturday after- boon at 3 o'clock. The society extend • tordimlinritation toalt who are interested in the subject. Admission 25 cents. Mrs. Carpenter is bigbljr re- cdramended from those places where she bas giren her art lectures, and her subject for next Saturday, Impressionism, is of general interest at the present time. The tramps are likely to give Algona a wide berth. Twelve were taken in last week and given ten days each on tbe streets. 'Squire Clarke bas a fixed sentence of ten days, and those who re- fose to work get bread and water. Four swore they wouldn't work. The last to bold out went over a day, but he finally asked for a square meal and shouldered his shovel. One tramp got a job with Jo. Zanke. and one, a hoy, went to C. L. Land's! When 'Squire Clarke told them they could put in 10 days on the street, one of them said, "If you will give ns ten minutes you will never see as on your streets again." They will advertise Algona far and wide. The famous suit brought by Nick Halsey of West Bend for some $12,000 he claims tbat Everingbam & Co. of Chicago defrauded him of in selling bay on commission is approaching a hearing. Geo. E. Clarke was in Chicago lately and bad to get an order of court compelling Everingbam to show up his sales, and now a series of interrogatories covering the sale of each of 1,200 cars of bay, to whom sold, by whom, for bow much, is being printed for Everingham to answer. His answers will be compared with those of the purchasers and tbe truth will come out. It looks as though they had taken about $10 a car out of Halsey. Arranging the testimony and tracking down each car makes this about as tedious and complicated a case as bas lately been started. LOST—Last evening, between the rink and Mr. Bossiogbam's, a black silk cape. Finder may leave at this office. . ALGONA BOYS AT LIVEBMOEE. G. A. Branson and A. E. Dangherty Bay a Drue Store at Llvermore. Livermore gains two of Algona's best young men. Glen Brunson and Lieut. Daugherty have bought the Welsh drug store there and will take possession at once. Mr. Daugherty is an experienced pharmacist and Mr. Brunson is a genial and careful business man. The Gazette says: The Welsh drug store has been purchased by G. A. Brunson and A. E. Daugherty, both of Algona. Already the invoicing is completed and tbe new firm is in possession. It is too late this week for us to proclaim in large type just what they propose to do, but the first thing they decided was that their present location would never do, and they immediately rented the new brick which is in course of construction by Chas. Zentz. They also instructed him to knock out the partially completed rear end of the same and extend it further, making a seventy foot building. This will be a fine location and good quarters. Mr. Brunson's wife will join him here as soon as he can get a suitable house. Mr. Daugherty is so unfortunate as to be differently fixed in that respect and we trust our girls will make a note of it. Mr. Frank will remain with the store for a time, and we herewith wish the new firm success. m I /*^oo leas, Having sold Chase & Sanborn's Cofifees for some time and found them to be of a superior quality and to give general satisfaction, we have now added a full line of their Teas, and would say to anyone looking for a good ar tide — try their Teas and you will not be disappointed.
