Charley Nolte had a little son eight years ago just as Benjamin Harrison was elected, and he is Benjamin Harrison Nolte. Now he has a second son just as McKinley comes in. This is Wm. McKinley Nolte. He got out of having to slight Grover Cleveland by having a daughter during his term as president. A happy event occurred last Wednesday in which G. W. Sample and Miss Amanda Kaestner were united in marriage, Rev. Sinclair officiating. Both parties are' well known in Kossuth. The happy couple began housekeeping at once on their farm in' Irvington. The good wishes of a host of friends go with them. The opera house company have accepted a proposition to secure "Shore Acres" in March. If the contract is signed Algona will secure the most popular drama now being played. The company will have 23 players on the stage, and come from Des Moines. It costs more than anything yet secured except Keene. Thos. Sherman of Bancroft was in Ames to see his brother graduate at the agricultural college, and'also to look over the experimental farm.

Last week THE UPPER DES MOINES figured out the expense of an election at six cents to the voter, It should have been six cents to the inhabitant. It costs about 30 cents to the voter to get the ballots printed, cast, counted, and returned. A man's ballot has some value evidently when the public is willing to put up 30 cents to have him cast it. Yesterday's Register has a note about Algona's former rector, Rev, A. V. Gorrell, now of i)es Moines, The Register says: His work in his parish is a success, He has ope of the finest choirs, vested, in the city, His congregation is active and very bar monious.

We felt like Binning the white ribbon on the lapels of their coats and dubbing them Honorables. The kindness of Mr, McGregor deserves special mention, for he it was who furnished the two south corners of the hall with his beautiful furniture. There were 100 plants catalogued. The prizes were iwarded as follows: First, to Mrs. Starr; second, to Miss Dodd; third, to Mr. Ford. The W. 0- T. U. desire to express their gratitude to the citizens of Algona for their liberal patronage. The W, C. T. U. will meet during the winter at the homes of the members." Saturday S. H. McNutt came to town with ah unruly horse. On the way home it ran away oil the Blackford hill. Mr. McNutt evidently attempted to turn it on the bridge at the bottom, the result being that the horse carried him and the buggy over the abutment close to the bridge, making a clean jump of 20 feet to the river. The horse evidently struck the edge of the bank, the whole outfit turning a complete summersault. . The hind wheels of the buggy were in the middle of the river, the horse on its back and Mr. McNutt partially under it, when he was able to look about. He got out with one bone in his leg broken, and the horse was uninjured. The harness was broken into strips and not a whole piece of the buggy was found. It was a marvellous escape.

Most of his time was spent in the Charles Aldrich historical department. Mr. Aldrich is a' great friend of Lewis H. Smith. He and Mr. Smith were officers in the war legislature together, serving in 'the old brick capitol where the soldiers' monu ment now stands. He recalls many pleasant incidents in their experience there, all night sessions, . etc. : Mr. Aldrich started the Webster City Freeman in 1857 and was one of the. most active republicans of the war period in this part of Iowa. He loses none of his energy or animation, and is building up a wonderful historical collection for Iowa, considering the chance he has had. _ • • A NERVY BOYNEAB SEXTON.. After His. Hand is Wrenched Off His Arm "He Tells His Mother Not to Cry.* Nicholas Matheis is the 11-year-old boy of a farmer living south of Sexton, The Wesley Reporter tells of his grit He was feeding a feed grinder when his left hand got caught in the machinery and before he could extricate it his hand was wrenched from the arm al the wrist. .The brave little fellow, more concerned about his mother's feelings than his pain, ran to the house and holding the stub up said, " mother, please don't cry, see I can stand it and will be able to work too." The hanc was afterward picked up in his mitten which he had on at the time. Dr. Kenney dressed the arm and says he is getting along remarkably well. A TOUQH BUH. STQBT, Hancock County Was the Home of Big Yarns Before Bro, Bailey Got Started, Back in June, 1859, nearly 40 years ago, the following premium yarn was published by Cbas, Aldrioh in the Web' ster City Freeman. It sounds so much like Bailey that it must be that his an cestors had a hand iu'it. In any even he has not excelled it much since The story is as follows; The toughest bull story we ever heard is told of an animal at Laconia Hancock county. This bull was so very ugly that it was decided to kil him, So the neighbors assembled am shot him full of holes, which only in furiated the beast, After a long time be was penned up and .tied securely with ropes and a two inch augur hole bored into his head. A pound of Du pont's best rifle powder was put in anc rammed down, and his bead was blown to pieces, This finally put an end to him- .......
