" When it comes to cards it is safe to let those Algona chaps alone." T. M. Ostrander and R. I. Brayton ran for constable at Bancroft and Bray* ton won by a vote, which Ostrander cast. Now Mr. Brayton is to leave and Mr. Ostrander has been appointed and has qualified. It is a fit ending. Here is a reminder of the old days. In July, 1857, the Fort Dodge Sentinel reported: "The enterprising citizens of Algona had a good time generally on the Fourth. Three hundred attended and Dr. A. S. Collins gave the address." Charlie Winkie's upset on the Blackford hill with his oil wagon was more serious to him than he anticipated. He kept sore and lame and Saturday had a doctor investigate. One cracked rib and two others seriously strained were found. The ladies of the Presbyterian church will have a fair at Grange hall, Dec. 8-9.

Over 800 tickets have been sold for the lecture course, It 'takes' 400 to make the course pay out, There are no cheap attractions in the list, The West Bend Journal says L, P., the Boston BJoolj, *• Perry Cuplln did not settle that breach of promise case, that the lady dropped it becauje there was np merit in it, The military boys had a royal good time at their dance last Wednesday evening and cleared fgo.

The object is to get a local secretary to whom all cases of unfortunates may be reported, and through whom the benefits of the homes established may be secured. Speaking of the defeat of the mulct petitions the Bancroft Register says: It is not likely that another attempt will be made for several years to come. But unless certain conditions in the dry precincts of this state are radically changed it will sooner or later carry and the outlawed saloon be returned to stay. Capt. Foster and Lieutenants A. E. Daugherty and W. E. Ward will have to go to Ames for the military school next month. Col, Cooke may not attend. His work comes at the state rifle range in June. It is expected that four and possibly six of Company F's shooters will be called there at that time. The opening club dance of the season was held at Clarke's hall Friday evening.

Call;'and Ghas, E, Smith, executive committee. Presiding Elder Yetter preached the morning sermon at the Methodist church Sunday and Dr, Cowles, Gardner Cowles' father, the evening sermon, Both were very able addresses.

Herne's " Shore Acres" will be given in Algona about March ?4, The company has S3 actors on the stage, It costs the opera house company more than any entertainment yet given, Keene and Hanfor^ excepted. The company expects to jump from Des Mpines to Algona, God hereafter." From the reports it though comparatively few- would carry hail insurance next season. The sewing class for which the home talent comedy is to be given next week is one of Algona's most practicable benevolences. Every Saturday afternoon from 60 to % little girls with a sprinkl* ing of boys are taught to handle the needle by a band of ladies who give their time and much of the material. The exhibit at the county fair by the class spoke for the splendid results. Some really superior seamstresses have already appeared, who when they began had never had a chance to learn much of the art. All who attend the play can get double enjoyment by knowing that the proceeds go to supply this little school, which is opeh to the children of the poor who have no other opportunity.

The Wesley Township School Director Refuses to Serve Longer— Other Wesley Notes/ WESLEY, Nov. 30.—C. A. Brewster resigned the office of school director of District No. 8 last Saturday. This was expected, and Mark Hill, the president of the board, was appointed to look after the district until March, when a new director will be elected, and he has given his promise to the people of that district that the school house will be opened for Sunday school and church purposes hereafter. The anti-saloon petitions are being circulated here and 50 per cent, of the qualified voters of Wesley township have signed them, A good many who signed the petition here election day have subscribed their names to the remonstrance. It is very evident that majority of the people of Wesley don't want a saloon here. Presiding Elder Yetter held his first Quarterly meeting here Sunday. The elder's sermon on Sunday evening is highly spoken of by all who were present. He went from here Monday, accompanied by Rev. Plummer, to LuVerne, to attend district conference. Prof. W. H. Brown's wife is on the sick list, but at this time of writing she is reported as some better. A. H. Presnell has been confined to his room for some time with asthma and lung trouble.

The Dispute Between the Kossuth Supervisors and the Burlington Rail-way Attracts Attention. The following is a news item taken from the Daily Capital. It is a sample of many that have appeared in the daily papers the past week: "A peculiar case has developed in Kossuth county, arising over a dispute between the Burlington, Cedar Rapids & Northern Railroad company and the board of supervisors of that county as to whoshallpay the funeral expenses of a drunken tramp who was run over and killed by a train on the company's road. The bill was sent in to the county, It amounted to about $40, and the board refused to O. K, the claim, alleging that it .was the duty of the railroad company to defray all the expenses of the case. It is claimed that a creature killed by a railroad company is removed from the right-of-way and buried and all expenses in the case are settled, and the board is of the opinion that in the case of a human being these obligations are equally as binding. The case may go into the courts for settle' ment, as both sides are persistent in disclaiming the bill," As to^tfce likelihood of a Jaw suit nothing has been heard at (ibis end of the line, Chairman Chubb says he is confident that the county is not liable, but has heard nothing whatever from the Burlington company as tp their vteftftb? roaster.

SPAEEIMJ TEEOUGH THE POST. A Wesley Youne Man Comes Over to Algoiia on an Unlucky Mission. It is said that a Wesley young .man hung around Algona all day last Wednesday expecting a young lady from Germania at the Thorington. He had been exchanging gushing love letters and this was to be the meeting to arrange for the future. The Reporter gives the young man away, the whole affair being a joke on him. It adds this sage advice: Boys until you know who you are writing to it is not safe to spark through the mails. As this is the first offense we mention no names. W.
