Other outside towns have orders in already. The big military ball comes Friday night. It will be a pleasant and largely attended party.

Parsons of Grlnnell will speak at the Congregational church next Sunday evening. His lecture will be illustrated withastereopticon. The mercury was 27 degrees below zero Monday morning and nearly as low yesterday morning. Tbe cold wave was all over the United States. Wilbur F. Quick was subpoenaed to Mason City yesterday to testify in a CHSO of jail breaking. He happened to be standing where he saw the affair. Marriage licenses have been issued Rudolph Hayenga and Mary A, Voigdt, Anton Dpleschal and Annie Deperdang, John P. INeisius and Josephine Funke. An orchestra is being made up from the harp orchestra and home talent for the Keene entertainment. Miss Kate Smith, G. W. Cady, and others will play. The Estberville Republican says of the editorial meeting last week: It is pronounced one of the association's very ijest. The Algonians are great entertainers. The New York Dramatic Mirror has this report from McKeesport, Pa.: Jas. A. Home's Shore Acres packed the house ut advanced prices, audience enthusiastic. The opening sale for Keone was large in spite of cold weather. And it was the-high-priced seats that sold. There is going to be a house that will break the record. O. H. Caulkins, who takes Miss Elsie Hunt to New Whatcom, Wash., lives within 20 miles of the Canadian boundary. He snys the mercury rarely reaches zero at his home. Mrs. Valentine, wife of the baker at Hulbert's restaurant, is holding revival meeting's at Mapleton. She belongs to the Baptist church, we understand, and is a successful evangelist. The school board holds its regular meeting Monday evening. At that time it will doubtless decide on. what to do with J. M. Cowan's claim of $600 for extras furnished for the new school building. Old friends of Wm. Carter of Irvington will regret to learn that there is no prospect of bis recovery. The doctor at the asylum told Mr. Boyle last week that nothing could be done for him there. The W. H. M. S. will give a reception at the residence of Mr. and Mrs. Gardner Cowles on Thursday evening, Fob. 4. This is the annual thank offering meeting and you are cordially invited to attend. The Rockwell City Advocate refers to the harp orchestra as a novel organization for a town of Algona's size. It surprised everybody. The harp orchestra does not take a back seat for anything in Iowa. The West Bend Advance says: " W. P. Boyer, an extensive farmer and cattle dealer living near Algona, is reported to have failed financially. Several of our business firms hold accounts against him." The Jefferson Souvenir refers toils former townsman and says: Rev. Landis, formerly of this place, acted as toastmaster at the banquet given Friday evening. It goes without saying that he filled the position capably. T. H. Conner says that the building journals show more contracts let in the eastern cities for big building than ever before at this season of the year. There will be a building boom all over the east. The west does not show so well. The city marshal caught four offenders last week two for being drunk and two for offenses not named. As THE UPPER DES MOINES don't know the names of the two latter it will not make any mention of the former. One paid $10 and one worked out 1510. The only criticism in about a dozen columns of comment on Algona is fairly summed up by the Jefferson Souvenir: Algona only lacks two things to make it one of the best towns in Iowa, viz: Electric lights and hotels. The former is not and several of the latter are "nit." Rev, Sinclair made 16 conversions at the Center school house in Buffalo township last week, and Rev. Innes is there this week holding nightly meetings. Rev. Sinclair preached five very able and convincing sermons and the reports from Buffalo are very flattering to him. Judge Quarton has decided that when the law says a petition must be filed ten days before court begins it does not mean ten clear days before the first day of the term, but may be ten days including the first day. Other judges have held the other way, which makes his ruling important. Guy Taylor is waiting for Chas. Grimm to come back from San Antonio, bate teen efcdloded, and thai the a wrong instruction about allowing Interest. Clarke & Cohenour made a strong shoeing, and a new trial is not unlikely. The central office of the Brotherhotfd of American Yeomen is opened in Cedar Rapids and at present is in charge of arf old friend of A. D. Clarke, Mr. Miles, who will interest himself in the society. Mr. Williams will come from Erie later. The work of instituting homesteads progresses satisfactorily. The new society is being Well received everywhere. The First Church of Christ, Scientist, of Algona was legally organized last Friday, and under this title the Christian Scientists of this place will continue their regular Sunday eel-vices at the Odd Fellows' parlors, at 10:45 a. m. Subject next Sunday: "Peter and John Condemned by the Rulers for Preaching the Truth and Healing the Sick." Sunday school at noon, All are invited. Suuday was the coldest day with one exception in 20 years, according to Mr. Pettibone's record. It averaged 22 below zero. Jan. 4, 1884, averaged 28i below. These are two landmarks. Up till Sunday, however, the weather has been unusually mild. In December 1883 and January 1884 there were 27 days that averaged below zero. But this winter zero has been reached only a few times. Judge Quarton wore a smile Saturday which has not wholly left him yet, one that could be easily distinguished from his e very-day genial look. It meant that a second daughter had arrived that morning at 4 o'clock, exactly .balancing up his little family with two boys and two girls. The little one came into a cold world, but nature will wear a more genial aspect by the time she is ready to look about and inspect her surroundings. Corwith seems to be a center of attraction for Algonians. The Hustler says: " M. Boyle, deputy sheriff, and J. Randall, deputy recorder, both of Kossuth county, made the Hustler office a friendly visit last Monday. Both are very pleasant young gentlemen and we bid them welcome to Hancock county. " J." was a former compositor on the Hustler and when he returned to' Algona it appears he did not take all that Corwith held dear to him." The' editor of the Ogden Messenger met an old friend in Algona in Mrs. Geo. Johnson. He says: "The editor and wife while at Algona enjoyed a pleasant visit with a lady, who over 30 years ago when a girl, was a familiar person in our home and in the neighborhood in which we resided. Her name is now Mrs. Johnson, when a girl Miss Mary Zimmerman. These are the pleasure hours in later life, to meet with familiar friends of long ago and talk about the happenings, and of the friends of a time when we' were young. " THE UPPER DES MOINES has a new argument against buying foreign made goods. , The editor invested in a fancy self-registering thermometer of English make a year ago, and now he wishes it had been put up on this side of the water. It is only marked to 20 degrees below zero, which is the limit of English cold, and Sunday night the mercury pushed the plug which does the registering way up into a crook in the tube and it won't come down. A 20 degree thermometer is all right generally but there are occasions when it don't suit Iowa conditions. The Fay Kenyon case is settled. He pleaded guilty and Judge Quarton sentenced him to 60 days in jail and to a fine of $100. If the fine is paid it will reimburse the county. If not he will lie in jail three months, Kenyon got $60 for the land he had no control over, but the man who paid it occupied the land two years, so that the actual wrong out no figure in the case. The punishment needed was only such as would deter him from further like dealings. ' Kenyon has been doing business on better business principles lately, and can easily make a success of life if he learns the lesson this case and the judge's clemency should teach him. The papers in discussing Judge Quar* ton's dog decision miss the point at issue. The owner of a dog can replevin the animal or recover damages, just as he can for a tame bear, wild goose, or coon, but he cannot arrest a man for stealing him, any more than he could for taking the others. A man cannot be arrested for taking a flock of tamed wild geese. The question is whether a dog is'to be classed with horses, cattle. and other domestic animals, or with tame foxes, coons, monkeys, etc. Most states have a statute making the dog a domestic animal, but Iowa has none 'Squire Raymond says the Iowa common law makes him one, and Judge Quarton says not. That is the issue. The Broken Lots and odd pairs of SHOfiS must go to make room for out" large J stock of spring goods that will soon begin to arrive. We tiee'd tbe room. You need the shoes. We need the money. Ydtt have it. Bring it to us and exchange it for FOOTWEAR. .See our bargains. We will save you money. We sell FOR,'•" CASH ONLY, so doh't ask for credit. •*_,», ne repairing.
