A Critical Surgical Operation Performed In Boston Ends Fatally. A telegram Monday announced the death of Mrs. Stella Cull Spencer at Boston. She was subjected to a surgical operation Saturday and did not survive. She had gone east about two months ago from her Duluth home, and hopes of a successful outcome were expressed. But it was not to be. The remains are expected in Algona tomorrow morning and after funeral exercises here they will be laid to rest in the Call family vault in the cemetery. Mrs. Spencer was the second daughter of Judge and Mrs. Asa C. Call. She was born in Algona and all the years of her girlhood and young womanhood were spent here. It was but a short time ago that her friends gathered at the old home to congratulate her on her happy marriage and to wish her a long and useful and joyful life. The news of her sudden death comes as a shock to all the pioneers. It takes them back to memories of her mother, whom she most of all her brothers and sisters resembled, to memories of the hopes and ambitions and plans and happy years that have gone. Mrs. Spencer was a leader in the circle of young people who made up the pioneer society of Algona. In her home she was a charming woman. Her death almost at the threshold of her mature life, just as with her husband and little boy she was looking forward to many happy years, is one of those inscrutible dispensations which we do not understand, but from which we cannot appeal, Dr. Nichols coming. The eye specialist, Dr. Nichols, will again test eyes for glasses, free, in Algona, in a few days. Wait for him. BlNGWNG'S show is over for this year, but our show is better than ever and improving all the time, M. Z, GROVE & SON, the track by illness. The report was that it had died, but It was alive yet when the car pulled out .for Eagle Grove. Otto Bingling says the circus war this summer has left them masters of the field. He says combines may work in some kinds of business, but that they can't work in the circus* business against them. Dr. O. S. Olson, Optical specialist, will be at the Tennant house in Algona on Aug. 1, where he will examine your eyes free of charge. If you have headaches, eye aches, or blurred vision, or cannot read by lamp light without effort or suffering from any eye strain whatever, you should come in and have your eyes tested and see if a pair of glasses will not relieve your trouble. Bemember that glasses are not always given to make you see better, but easier. See circulars. Money. I am loaning money on farm lands &\, six per cent, interest. Only a small charge will be made for procuring this cheap money. The borrower can have the privilege of paying off all or any part of his mortgage at the time of pay- Ing interest. J. J. BYAN.
