Marshal Horan has killed 34 dogs thus far. It is estimated that 50 threshing machines are now at work in Kossuth". W. E. Brown, who lives near the Wilson mills, is very low with typhoid. The public library gave out 173 more books in August this year than in the same month last year. Supervisor Smith met a sister from Wisconsin Monday evening and did not remain for the board meeting. The Chubb house is enclosed. It will be one of the largest and finest in Algona, and will not cost less than $6,000. Fred. Clarke will go with Cyril Hay to attend school in the Illinois boy's school the latter has attended the past year. Marriage licenses have been issued to Frank H. Ford and Ella May Hawkins, Arthur Dodds and Martha Albright. Subject at the protestant Episcopal church, "Nature and Religion," and "Religion and Morals." All are cordially invited. The democrats took the Little German band up to Burt, hist night for the Prof. Rice meeting. Wait till Dolliver speaks at Burt. The Young Men's Christian association will open their new rooms formally Monday evening. All friends invited. 'Speeches, music, etc. Mr. Ehlers, our new druggist, has rented the old Ed. Williams house on Thorington and will move at once. It will make him a pleasant home. Bedford, a threshing machine engineer, was up for being drunk. 'Squire Clarke assessed him $15 and costs, which his employer paid. The Algona band has given up going to Eagle Grove because the contest there competes with the county fair. The boys will entertain the crowds here at home. Auditor Calkins' father and mother are with him and will make their home in Algona. His father had a big sale of fancy horses before coming and got excellent prices. The public school opened Monday with a big attendance. Miss Stephens has the depot school, and the others are stowed away in the main building until the new one can be completed, The old settlers will picnic at the fair grounds tomorrow. If the day is pleasant a big gathering is insured;, Stories of early days, speeches, etc., and a basket dinner constitute the pro~ r. and Mrs, Cbas, Magnusson, w Larson's two girls, Geo. Fisher's girl, Mrs, Young, Ed.. Young's mother, and the hired girl at Dexter Turner's are among the typhoid fever patients. Weston's oowmedian? witb full, unl* formed band will entertain the people next week Wednesday, Thursday, Fr}' day, and Saturday evenings.

Important business matters are to be brought bo- fore the society ahd it is earnestly re- qiiested that nil Members be present. This hiorning's Register says: Mr* Wat Jones of Algonn, who Came to Des Molnes yesterday, assisted by Others, polled the passenger train between Jewell Junction and Elmore. The result was: McKlhley 140, Bryan 28. Either there nre no democrats or they ure not traveling. Mrs. Lund will save her homestead out of the Lund farm. It will be the 40 acres with the buildings. Her insurance money amounts to $14,000, ib' stead of $20,000. It seems that some accident insurance was counted to make the latter amount. The com* panles have all indicated an intention to pay* A new Lund cnse has appeared. Two days ago a farmer hear Bancroft came down to consult Lawyer Curtiss. Lund sold him his land and gave him a pretended abstract with " Joslyn & Lund, abstractors." The abstract did not show an $800 mortgage that is on the land. The abstract was bogus throughout. Miss Nettie Benjamin went to Minneapolis two weeks ago .for a visit. She was taken down with typhoid fever just us the encampment opened, and Thursday was brought homo by A. A. Brunson. She was very sick nn'd had to be carried from the depot. She will have a full run of fever, but is now getting along nicely. Oltosen, the new town down on the southwest line of the county on the Burlington road, is booming. A correspondent in the Humboldt Republican says: Several parties from Algona were here last week looking for business locations. They expressed themselves as being very much pleased with the town prospects, and undoubtedly there are some of them who will locate here. There are n dozen or more cases of typhoid fever in town. The doctors attribute the trouble to the wells. They have been dry and the rains this season that have filled them have carried them full of sewerage. No cases can be traced to the use of city water, although boiling that improves it. Mrs. Henry Mason, Frank Howard and Alice Minkler are among the unfortunates. Capt. Karburg, who spoke for McKinley in German at Whittemore Saturday afternoon, WHS in the same company in the war with Paul Dorweiler, and spent what time he had to spare with him. Philip Dorweiler presided at the meeting which was attended by .Germans from all over the western part of the county. The captain is said to have made a fair, candid, and able presentation of the money question. Archie Hutchison contracted the Louisiana fever and ague when he was south last winter and cannot get rid of it. He has shaking spells about three times a week. One dny last week he was taken while walking to the Milwaukee depot, and near J. H. McNall's fell on the walk and lay there half an hour before he was discovered. While the attack is on he is perfectly helpless. It is a peculiarly malignant type of fever. Sunday evening the local bible society held its annual meeting. The following officers were elected for the year: A. D. McGregor, president; J. A. Brownell, vice president; C. A. Tellier, treasurer; F. S. Norton, secretary.. Mrs. Setchell was chosen librarian and will hereafter have charge of the local sale of bibles. As a result of the sale of bibles and of the contribution taken at this meeting, $70 Was sent to the American Bible society. Bud O'Rourko and O. Ingalsbee are in Des Moines today with about 15 witnesses on a side to fight it out on a 40- acre tree claim belonging to the latter. Saturday A. L. Peterson went down and took photographs, and is in Des Moines with them to show how the trees actually look. S. :S. Sessions went to present O'Rourke's claim, while J. W. Sullivan will defend for Ingalsbee, It will be a hot contest, as the principal contestants have their blood up. An interesting reminder of Aaron Rutherford is lost. It is a copy of a Belfast paper containing a speech he made when a young man against rack .renting in Ireland, A friend had preserved the paper and gave it to him years afterwards when he was living in New York, It was kept .in the family for many years, but search for it now fails to reveal its whereabouts. Mr. Rutherford was a vigorous agitator against the landlord system in Ireland, and his speech contained all the vigor and directness of speech he was so well known for throughout life, ,. Saturday evening at Perry Burlln game's farm Thos. Dugan was helping put down a long pump pipe in his 260 foot well, In some way the jack he was manipulating failed to hold the pipe.and it slipped through, breaking down the platform. He got a terrific blow on the calf of the leg, and was brought to the Northwestern hotel here in town where he is now laid up, although no hones were broken. The pipe had an elbow which fortunately caught on the curbing and prevented the whole thing from going to the bot torn, which would have ruined the well. Another business change occurs this week, Otto Falkenhainer, brother of the druggist, has bought the Stacy Stephenson hardware store and is aV ready invoicing, He ponjes to Algona from St, Lou.is, where he has been .in the hardware business for soro§ years, and he will at once put in a complete Another brother, George Fftl- er, who lives at Dubuque but tj'ftYiels for a New Yorfc cutlery house, is here assisting in tbe invoice.

Dixon, who married Mrs. Lanjanski a week ago, has gone. He was married Thursday, spent four days of honeymoon at his wife's expense including a ride, and Monday left for parts unknown. THE UPPER DES MOINES has received a communication from Mrs. Dixon, which is too long to print. But one paragraph will throw a little light on the occasion of her leige lord's sudden departure. She-says; "My man got so that $18 was not heavy enough for him. He had to look in the pocketbook for more and at last got in with-feet and legs and broke through and made a big hole in it. The wind blew him away and all that was left, me was the name Mrs. Bertha Dixon.''

The county board met Monday, and spent the day in fixing up the tax levy for next year. It is the same as for last year except that the state levy is 2 8-10 mills as against 21 mills, and the county adds a 1-10 mill for soldiers' relief. The total valuation is smaller for 1897 than it was for last year, a falling off of over $100.000. This means that the personal property assessment is dropping^ to meet the decline in prices. The general tax levy is as follows: State, 2 8-10 mills; poor, 1 mill; bridge, 3 mills; insane, 6-10 mill; road, 1 mill; poll tax, 60 cents; county, 33- mills; school, 1 mill; dog, 50 cents, female, $1; soldiers' relief, 1-10 mill. The county still levies the one mill road tax in the incorporated towns, as the question has not been decided in the court. THE TOWNSHIP LEVY.
