A two-inch snow fall Sunday morn ing. J Court opens next Monday. Judge Quarton on the bench. The harp orchestra plays for a party at Whittemore tonight. The firemen's big dance comes Friday evening, Jan. 1. It will be gotten up regardless of expense. Referring to some complaints about liquor selling in Kossuth, Bailey sug' gests: "If the pharmacy law is too loose, bettor have some clamps put on it.' The Armstrong Journal says that only one camp of renters on Gov. Larrabee's lands in Eagle Lake township were Bryan men. The rest supported McKinley. The Union Literary society made a good opening Thursday evening. A big audience was out for Rev. Landis' address, which was heartily enjoyed. We commend Union's example to .the other townships of the county. Guy L. Taylor wa's in Marshalltown on business last week, and happened in on a big banquet given by the Marshalltown gun club. He and Gilbert of Spirit Lake are members of that club, which is, going to be the best in the west. The contract for " Shore Acres" has been signed. March 23 is the date. This is fully as important an engagement for the opera house as the Keene- Hanford combination, and insures play goers two of the best entertainments that will visit Iowa this year. A curiosity in the way of a 1,300 pound Jersey steer was at the Northwestern depot last week. It was sold by Mr. Jogenson, and as a calf was the property of J. B. Winkel, who raised him. Jerseys rarely reach any such weight. This fellow was a big one. Hobart has a full fledged dancing club. They have had the harp orchestra three times. Friday evening they had a big party, with 25 couples in attendance. Those who attend say Hobart gives as fine a party and has as good dancers as any town in the county. Charlie Grimm of Clear Lake has arranged a live bird shoot with Dr. Carver-. The doctor is the crack shot of the world and has open a challenge for a $5,000 match with anybody. Grimm has taken him up, but for what purse is not known. The shoot occurs in Chicago soon. Ledyard had an evening of fine music last Thursday, Kate Smith and Mrs. Maud Jones of Wesley assisting local talent. A large audience attended and enjoyed an exceptionally good program. It is said that Ledyard has a singer or two who cannot be beaten in the county. C. O. ^hmels, who has that coffin bill against the county, was in town Monday. He thinks he can make the county pay. The Burlington road have not been heard from officially, so far as we can learn, but it is understood that they politely but firmly decline to put up the $40. anlined and Mr. Bower has been unable to be at his business for a week. His brother-in-law, S. W. Gray of Fort Dodge, came Monday to take charge of the store and prepare for the holiday trade. Many friends of the family will hope that the disease will spread no farther and that little Gwendolin will suffer no serious setback. Geo. E. Clarke returned from Ida Grove Saturday. He defended abanker named Baxter there in a $20,000 suit brought by an editor named Sprague, who used to live at Burt and had charge of the Monitor. Sprague's paper had published a vicious article on Baxter, and Baxter horsewhipped Sprague. Sprague's lawyer was A. C. Parker. In the trial it turbed out that long-haired Geo. Williams wrote the article, but even that did not let Sprague out with the jury, for they returned a verdict of only $60 damages, which was a great victory for Baxter. A local camp of the Modern Woodmen, consisting of our best citizens, dormant for the last nine years, has lately been revived by a head camp officer, Deputy Head Consul T. Adelsheim of Sioux City, who secured about 40 new applicants, made up of some of the best young men in town. We are informed that this camp will bo re-organized at the I. O, O. F, hall on next Wednesday evening, Dec. 16. The Whittemore camp, 80 strong, will conduct the initiatory ceremony, under the supervision of the head camp officers, and all surrounding camps are invited to be present. These camps ;ire now located in every town, except in cities of over 200,000, which are barred by its laws. Its jurisdiction extends only to 12 northwestern states, the healthiest states . in the union. We wish them success. GREAT ribbon sale for ten days—your (hoice for 10 cents a yard at 37t2 JNO.

M,tl.<- *$4 «v5it^ SEE HERE Almost The cast for "By Wits Outwitted" Friday evening gives promise of a splendid entertainment. The play' is as clever a comedy as was ever given in Algona, and on former occasions our home players have not fallen much below the best imported talent. The Harp orchestra will furnish part of the evening's program. A car of black walnut logs was loaded at the Northwestern depot not long ago for shipment to Europe, A trader came in and picked up a log here and there until he got a car load. Black walnut lumber, for all the. use of oak, maple., etc., is still very valuable and scarce, and logs are evidently being bunted for in all quarters. Episcopal service next Friday at 7:30 p. m, at the Fraser school house, Sunday services as usual, Sunday evening Rev. Muller will continue his series of sermons on misconceptions about the Episcopal church. He will deal with the imputation that "The Teachings and Practices of the Church Lead to Romanism." All are cordially invited. The editors of the Upper Des Moines association will probably assemble in Algona at the time of the Gunsaulus lecture. Mr. Starr is chairman of the Jooal committee and this is his Bug. gestion, and a good one. It will intro* duce the visitors to our opera house, the most brilliant orator of the west and some sound doctrine all at one time, The Courier makes a 'good suggest' ion, It is that those who want to aid a deserving work buy extra tickets for the play Friday evening and present tbeej to children and pepplo who can* notreadijy affpra to attend, The lit- tie girt sewing class is one of the worthiest project* eyfir bsgun in Algpna. and SQ ipng as it aske support In so .
