Jewel Stoves are sold by DOXSBB. HARDWARE, AL0ONA.' Did you Ever think that you might buy a better quality of Hardware, Stoves, Cutlery, and Tinware than you have been used to getting for ,,|| your money, and still pay a less price ? I know that I have the best stock of goods in Algona, and I believe I can sell them cheaper than they can be bought elsewhere. Coal is going to be higher this winter, but you can reduce your fuel bill about one-third by buying a new GARLAND or ELMHURST HEATER. These are the two best coal burners on the market, and while requiring less fuel give more heat. Come in and see them. And in soft coal I have the ROUND OAK—the genuine. SEE THE NAME ON THE LEG.

Thursday was an ideal fall day and several hundreds of old settlers met at the fair grounds and picnicked. The business of the day was to decide upon •what to do for permanent grounds on which to erect the old log cabin. Mr. Ambrose A. Call offered an acre at the south end of Thorington street, but the presence of buildings'.on the fair grounds, the sheds for teams in case of storm, etc., inclined the majority in favor of the latter place and it was so voted. President Pettibone appointed Dr. Armstrong, Geo. 0. Call and Harvey Ingham a committee to. arrange with the agricultural society and also to secure due of the old cabins for erection as a memorial building. It was decided not to attempt to build a meeting hall. The rules of the society were changed, also, to permit all who have been in the county 20 years to become members. A comraltttee consisting of F. M. Taylor, Capt. Dodge and S. Reed was, appointed to extend the thanks of the society to Mr. Call for his generous offer. One of the interesting features of the day's program was the report of J. B. Blackford on the dead of the year, was as follows: Your committee on obituaries would respectfully report the following list of names of those who have died since our last meeting! Oliver Bensohoter, John Gallion,Mrs, H. A. Henderson, J, J, Wilson, A. L, Seeley, D. M. MoCall, Mrs. Cora Fitch, Mrs, May Warner, David Dutjton, G. W, Eddy, MVB. A. D. Barr, Mrs, B, Waterhouso, Leonard Hohn, Alex, Patterson, Mrs. Kosa Brown Barr, John T. Davis, Mrs, Jane Roan, Mrs, M. Sarcbett, Mrs, Stella Call Spencer, , Kendall Young, Aaron Rutherford, Henry Sifert. The association will notice that as the years go by the list grows longer. It in- i eludes the names of persons who were very s early settlers, and of many who were f Identified with the early history of the f county, and assisted largely in its growth, land developement, Some of the names on Ithe list are of persons born ana rearea in ithe county, and some who died here, and of Pothers who died in other places, A part of ithe names are not found on the list as members of this organization, but were all eligible to membership, and in the opinion pf your committee entitled to this recognition at our hands. Your committee jvould recommend that to show our respect for the deceased a memorial page on ecord book of this association be set apart i which their names shall be inscribed, espeotfully submitted, J. E. Bi4.oiHfOBD, Com, Algona, Iowa, Oct. l, 1896. This list contains many well known games, It contains some not so well inown now, but once conspicuous county. Among the latter are inose of Kendall Young, who founded Irvington, and Mrs, E, A. Henderson Ugona'a pr§t landlady, Mrs. Arabros< V, Call's mother. An interesting feature of tne day's exercises was tbe letter read by President Pettibone from ten yell. Mr, Pettibone has spent some ;... i in getting track pf tWs well re- .jembered, pioneer, Mr, Maxwell foilt the cabin on the Fry farm, south ! town, in 1855. Mr- Maxwell wrote; gu,e—Rear Sirs "isnfts'orryl 414 B°t re .eive yow kind myitatjop to .attwjfl Md Settlera'. agftpoiattpjj until. the . get- I should.

Blackford, secretary, John Reed, treasurer. The success of the meeting was largely due to the untiring efforts of Mr. Pettibone and he leaves behind him a record of good w.ork for the society. The cabin, with appropriate exercises, will be dedicated next year. THE Mason City Globe-Gazette says: The recital given last night by Miss Myrtle Trevitte of Minneapolis was delightfully entertaining. Miss Trevitte showed herself to be an artist in her work. Her easy, graceful manner before her audience is exceedingly winning, and her impersonations'are excellent. The appreciation of her efforts was evinced by the numerous encores by the audience. A most enjoyable evening was spent by all. FOR sale or rent, the Read place in the south part of town.—2913 FOR sale: • Two good heating stoves. Inquire of Lenette W. Butler.—29t2 Now is the season for floor oil cloth. When you are putting up your stoves remember that we carry oil cloths in all widths and grades, G. L, GALBRAITH & Co, The opening Dolliver rally itt the county, at Burt Monday evebiagi broke all records. All the country round turned out, Algoha sent 127 with band and torch processiotti The speeches were made in the Paine hay barn, the teht getting miked up among the freight trains so as to arrive at Algona too late for shipment. Over 200 tons of hay were carried out to make room for the 1,000 the barn holds. _ It was packed like a sardine box and more stood outside than got in. M. D. O'Connell talked an hour and a half and Congressman Dolliver followed. When his remarks ended a sot of questions left by J. B. Romans for him to answer were propounded. These he went through in short order, but it was past midnight when the meeting ended. Nothing like it has ever been seen in Burt, and republican enthusiasm is at fever heat. Yesterday Mr. Dollivor was at Germania in the afternoon and at Ledyard in the evening, both big meetings. This afternoon he is at Swea City. Tonight the tent will be pitched at Bancroft and another special train will run for the meeting leaving Algona at 7 o'clock. The Bancroft meeting will be another rousing big one. Tomorrow night the meeting is at Whittemore, and Friday evening at Wesley. The regular trains run conveniently for both meetings. Capt. Yeomans in a Now Uolo. . Four years ngo Capt. Yeomans spoke in Algona and told the people that if Cleveland was elected a period of universal prosperity would set in. Saturday evening he came again to tell a big audience that he was mistaken then but that now Bryan's election would do the business. The captain had an array of statistics that was bewildering, but he used all to good advantage and made an interesting speech. A review of it would be a serious undertaking. It is enough to say that while it was more logical than most free silver speeches, and while the captain shrewdly avoided many statements that would at once involve him in trouble, he was still far from convincing unprejudiced hearers that free coinage at 16 to 1 by this country would be a success. The captain is only a recent convert himself. If he was mistaken on Grover four years ago after many years of thoughtful and undoubtedly prayerful consideration, what assurance have we that he is right now after only a few weeks of hasty and probably swearful cramming. The experience of running for office would do him good and the salary will be duly collected—by the other fellow. Our James made a good impression out at Ruthven. The Appeal sayfe: The house was crowded,and it was a very enthusiastic crowd. Mr* Ryan's speech was a stfoiig argutnent for the white metal. It was sufficiently 6ott i vincing t6 bring twelve silver republicans into the silver ranks, they joining the club at the Close of the meeting. The Emmetsburg Tribune says: "Captain Yebmatis gave them a great speech at Algona a week ago Saturday, and left a decided 16 to 1 impression by his able arguments and brilliant advocacy of the bimetallic standard." Thfa shows the capacity of the free, silverites to Invent facts, The captain was unable to meet his Algontt appointment, and did hot come till a week later. Brook Plummor of Forest City, who is making the wildest free silver speeches that ever competed with northwest wind storms, Is pretty cute after all. Bailey reports an incident that illustrates: One of our business men recently sent B. A. Plummet* a $12 note for collection inquiring as to the solvency of the maker. Brook replied: "It will doubtless be paid if free silver wins, otherwise it is doubtful." However, he offered $8 for the note. They have the thing down fine nmong the puekerbrush bankers. Brook is full of tricks of this kind and would give $8 for a worthless note in a horn if he really believed his own story. WE have a few nice medium priced lamps we would like to show you. M. z.
