WHITE, Fine Oak Birch Suits Dress reform is on down at the state normal school. Someone visited not long ago and Went away and said the girls looked puny. They took it to heart and began to investigate. Finally they decided that the old fashioned dressing outfit was at fault. And with Thanksgiving 100 came out In a new uniform. This consists of skirt six inches from the floor, jacket to wear over shirt or fancy waists, leggins for protection In cold or stormy weather, and plain hat or cap to match. Rational underclothing is insisted upon; skirts to be abolished, and the weight of the clothing to be evenly distributed. One of the young ladies, who is promoting the scheme, says it is not expected that all will wear the same color, and that waists, collars and ties will be left to individual taste. The jirls expect in a few months inow to ook as blooming as June roses. Insanity Will Be tbe Plea. Lou Kellihan, the Sherburne bank robber, was Indicted at Fairmont last week for murder in the first degree. On motion of his 'attorneys the case was continued and set for trial Feb. 16. His attorneys are McMlllen & Dunlap of Bock Rapids, Lorln Cray of Mankato and M. E. L. Shanks of Fairmont. The defense will be temporary Insanity. In the motion for continuance the defense say they ' will prove by the superintendent of schools and several of Lou Kellihan's teachers that he was all right at times and by spoils would "act 'strange and quee'r; physicians will testify that were not right mentally. As there Is no one to testify who did tha shooting It will be a difficult matter to convict him of murder. _____ Alex. Younlo's Expensive Potatoes. Alex. Younie, Algona's one time hotel man, now of West Bend, a few days ago received by express a barrel of sweet potatoes from a friend In St. Joe, Mo., as a Thanksgiving gift. When they arrived here the express charges were $4.90, while any of our merchants here could duplicate the same for $2 per barrel. As they wore sent as a gift from a friend Mr. Younie paid the charges rather than have the gift refused. The West Bend Journal recites the facts, and asks: . "How long Is the suffering public going to be plundered by those extortionate express companies. Dangers of Kissing. Blue Earth City Post: The Algona UPPER DES MOINES of last week has half column article with "scare head," entitled, "Danger Lurks in Kissing." Wonder if those slow pokes In Iowa have just found it out? Why, we knew a fellow back In York State who kissed a pretty girl 30 years ago, and he has had to support the girl and nine children as a consequence. Take our own experience: Years and years ago we kissed—but never mind. We never kissed any one since. Tbe Old Crop on Hand. Armstrong Journal: A Kossuth county grain dealer sent out a circular to one of his customers inquiring the amount of old crop on hand, The answer he got was: "All we've got in this neighborhood is three widders, two schoolmarms, a patch of wheat, the hog cholera, about fifty acres of taters, and a darned fool who married a cross-eyed gal because she owned eighty sheep and a mule, which same is roe, and no more at present." He Won't Do It Again, Gregory Bruxer of Wesley held a lantern in one hand and a hand*ax in the other, He was trying to break a board with the back of the ax, The board did not break, but bounded back and tbe blade of the ax hit Gregory in the face, cutting a two inch gash in his lower Up, knocking a tooth loose and also bruising his nose', The Reporter says he will out his kindling in daylight hereafter, It will Do tne Business. Burt Monitor: It is said that Manager Blossom of the Call Opera house will try a very simple way to get rid of the hat nuisance. He has been requested to put up a sign in a a conspicuous place which reads: "Ladies under 85 years will kindly remove their hats," Watting for Conflflenpe, Carroll Herald: Say, what bap become pf the Upper Des Moines Editorial assopiationy When last seen, at Bopne, it was headed for Algona, but it has not been heard of since.

At Wedding feasts in Morea the bride and bfidgfeoom stand tpoh a Sofa of a box, While the guests gather around singing and making speeches iii thetr honor. Bice and cotton seeds are thrown after the departing pair, Upon her entrance to the new home the bride must drink a glass of honey and water, that ber words toay always be sweet. Often the door sill is smeared with honey, In Rhodes the bridegroom, dipping his fingers in nectar and tracing n cross on his door, says to the bride, "Bo good and sweet as honey." Then ho crushes a pomegranate and enters the house. In some parts of the country, when the bridegroom, enters the bride's house ho breaks a stick on the doorstep to show his power over his future wife. In all parts of the country the bride is Supposed to behave very humbly. At the feast she usually sits in a corner on a pile of cushions, while her now lord sits in the center of the gathering. The guests carry away small honey cakes or little white satin bags of candy, which are really very pretty. In the island of Cyprus the groom is carried to his wedding in the arms of his friends. If ho comes from a distance, however, he enters on horseabok, and the youths of the bride's hamlet try to pull him from his horse, but it is his aim to rido proudly up to her door and bear her. away in triumph. Sometimes tho shepherds protend to carry away their brides,' but the resistance is only feigned, aiid oho who has seen all these odd things says the mock resistance usually ends with the words, "Drive ou and nevermind my tears." —New York Post. ' • Sold only by Langdon & Hudson. TELEPHONE NO. IS. A Conjurer Appears.Before the Sultan. The subjoined amusing anecdote is related of a renowned conjurer. Ho had traveled over almost tho whole world. When he sought to try his fortune bof orp the sultan of Morocco. After having successfully entertained tho powerful ruler with several clever tricks ho determined upon closing tho entertainment with the following wonderful perform' once. Taking a snow white and a gray pigeon, he appeared to cut off the head of each and then to place the white head on the gray pigeon,' and the gray head on the white, pigeon, after which they flew away just as though nothing had been done to them. Tho sultan was very enthusiastic about this performance, and having ordered two of his eunuchs, a negro and a native, to be brought forward he commanded the conjurer to cut off both theh heads and exchange them as he had dona in tho case of the pigeons. The perform' er was somewhat taken aback ut this peremptory request, but managed to retain his presence of mind and said through his interpreter: "Pardon, youi most gracious majesty, my apparatus today is only arranged for pigeons, and not for men. I require at least 14 days to prepare for the desired performance." "Good!" replied the sultan, "the extension is granted." The conjurer hurried from the palace and lost no time in getting out of the country. ORANGE. Also Land, Loan and Collection Business.- Offlce over Algoim State Bank.

"Do you know the actual weight of a hat?" queried tho spruce salesman as he handed out several "new styles." "People don't generally. I asked n man that question yesterday, and he guessed 14 ounces on that -hat, which weighs exactly 4}£ ; an ordinary hat weighs only 7. "I looked up the matter recently, and so I know precisely. A 'silker'.is most the heaviest hat made, though hunting hats weigh more, from their having an inner lining of great stiffness and strength to save a man if he should be thrown ou his head. The hunting top hats weigh 10 ounces and the hunting derbys 9. A winter derby weighs 5>^ ounces, varying a quarter ounce either way for size, and a 'summer soft felt 8 % ounces. When it comes to wotoen's headgear, there are all sorts of weights, though seldom does a woman's hat of any kind run more than 7 ounces. It depends on the kind of trimming and f allals. Some ribbons are heavy, anoV so are some artificial flowers, Jet ia heavy too. The average little bonnet weighs 3 ounces to 9%, a trinjme4 'sailor' 8>f and a 'Sen? nett 1 (the kind that have brims stiffened With glue) 4%."~New Tork JJeraid, P. L.
