"* The Koran boys got a telegram yes, terday announcing their father's dan- „ gerous illness. ~i,Wm. K. Fergusion sent a car of cattle ^to' Chicago last week that averaged • 'dyer 1,800 pounds. • ' The school board met last week and K\ elected Miss Grace Gilchrist to the •vacant room in the new school build- ing. She Is Prof. Gilchrtst's daughter and has taught here before, giving splendid satisfaction. The selection adds to the strength of the teaching corps. The public schools opened Monday, But not in the new building. The seats have not arrived. • The Congregatloualists met Monday and rented pews. They alsochose Rev. Sinclair pastor for another year. Fred. Paine and Miss Gertie Isenberger were married in Algona last week Tuesday by 'Squire Clarke. The, Capital and Register both re- E ublish Mr.' Smith's account of shoot- ig the last elk in Kossuth county. The Knights of Pythias were to have a big banquet tonight, but the absence of Dr. Sheetz has necessitated a week's postponement. W. J. Stewart of Bancroft saved the county a sensation by removing himself. It is rumored that two wives figure in the case. The firemen's dance was a big success. , The boys are using their money ,to pay for their new uniforms, which have coat about $120. > The new Brotherhood of American Yeomen includes the women—all the women in fact, for anyone under 60 years is entitled to join. ' One of the Garman boys of Prairie was before 'Squire, Clarke yesterday for malting threats against the physical well being of Mr. Pierce. C. H. Robblns of Spencer, who is to read a paper at the coming editorial meeting, is a brother of Marcus Robbins, Algona's pioneer lawyer. The third meeting of the county, teachers comes at Wesley Saturday of this week. No special program is arranged, but a live meeting is assured. The Gunsaulus lecture comes next week Thursday ."evening. It will be an eyent if for, no other reason than that an, aggregation,of editors will be on exhibition, Geo.

' • Ttfe genel'ttl public will be invited to hear Pros. Gates on Plutocracy at the opera house next week Friday, morning at 11 o'clock. «The' papers , east and west are devoting considerable space to his Ideas and it will 'pay everybody to hear him. The county agricultural society meeting comes next Saturday. Everybody is a member who shows interest enough to attend. This is the time to elect officers, plan for the fair, and talk up arrangements for-the farmers' institute. A. H. Langdon is now located in Milwaukee for the winter. He has been for a year at Manitowoo building 27 miles of railroad with expensive terminals. He had entire charge of the work. He and Mrs. Langdon will visit in Algona a few days longer. J. J. 'Ryan was one of the faithful who gathered at Des Moines last week and assisted in electing M. F. Healey state chairman of the democracy. He says the cause of free coinage p.t 16 to 1 is alive and that Mr. 1 Healey is more radical than the last chairman was. E. G. Bowyer's family is again quarantined on account of diphtheria, the oldest daughter, Edith, being sioliu, She is not having a very serious attack but diphtheria is always dangerous. Little Gwendolin is getting over her attack slowly, but is still far from well. Hugh Maurice Davenport came to Algona as a stranger Saturday, and received so cordial a welcome at the Davenport home that hi.s'father. is still smiling over 1 the arrivals The young man is well and his mother also, and all are the recipients of cordial congratulations. . • Lem Stockwell says they can't make him feel blue over hogs at present prices. Back in 1870 he hauled hogs to Algona and sold them* at $1.60 a hundred. He killed what-he -had left and then sold smoked * hams at ,four cents a pound. -He says the farmers have sepn worse times 'than these here in Kossuth county. The census gives Kossuth county only, 3,860 church members out of a population of over 18.000. This is less than an average of one to' a family. There are 40 church societies and they pay $18,675 in salaries to°the preachers. The seating capacity of the churches is 11.171, which would indicate that we are not in pressing need of new edifices. The churches are valued at $104,'980, parsonages at $20,200, and the Sunday schools have 2,121 members. The showing is not very big, and probably the 1 census figures are not as complete as they should be. In fact we know qf many failures *of the assessors to rep'ort church 'statistics. ' J. M. Cowan was before the school board Monday evening presenting claims to some $600 over the amount awarded him by the architect for Wa§ m Great Remnant Sale For Fifteen Days.

We understand the charge Mil be 60 cents a plate, Some of the brightest men in Iowa will respond to toasts. There will be a special meeting of the W. L. A. S. Friday afternoon, Jan. 8, with the following program: A paper, "From Glasgow to Edin* burgh by Way " of Loch Lomotid," by Mrs. Minnie Drake; %l Thomas Campbell and His Poetry," paper by Mrs. M. A, Vincent; "Short Discussion," Mrs. A, L. S. Garfield. Sutton says there is nothing to that Corwith case, all ho did was to sell a man over there a township right to handle "Farmers Supply company" goods. He says he is head of the Farmers' Supply company. The man went into court to show that there is no such company, but Sutton says he convinced the" judge on that point without a lawyer, and that ended the suit. Weathe'r "Clerk Pettibone's records show that November was colder than any November for three years and that December was warmer than proceeding Decembers. Last November's average temperature was 221 degrees, while in 1895 it was 31i, in 1894, 23, and In 1893 was 32 degress. December on the contrary averaged 29 degrees, as against 22i in 1895, 27 in 1894, and 18 in 1893. The total precipitation was very big in November and December as compared with late' years. It is 4.63 inches as against 1.77 in 1895, 1.14 in 1894, and 2.20 in' 1893. The ground ought to be well filled with water for next sprkig, for most of the snow and rain has soaked in. Algona's list of college students holds its own. At present there are 20 attending distant schools. The Minnesota university leads with seven: Mabel and'Ruby Smith, Alice Wadsworth, Lulu Clarke, Claude Nicoulin, Geo. Horton, and Geo. Patterson; the Iowa state university has Will Hinchon, Will Kain, Claud 'Stull, O. N. Bossingham, Lloyd Sarchett; the Woolstock, III., school has Fred.
