O Y6AR8' ^v^^S , W-i The weather has been genial for a week. The only complaint is it is not cold enough to be enjoyable. It is doubtful if the old settlers can get the old Maxwell cabin. Mr. Frye says he cannot let it go now. Some of our Algona rifle shots went over to visit the wolves at Charley Kuhn's, but Brer Wolf was absent. Thos. Gilbride was not expected to live Monday. His trouble is stone in the bladder and he has been very low. _ County politics for next fall is already m the air. We hear various rumors. Politics is a great recreation these dull times. Rev, W. M. Evans, of Estherville, Iowa, is preaching to full houses in the Presbyterian church each evening this week, • Burt was a liberal patron of Keene. Burt has done a great deal to make expensive plays possible in the opera bouse, r Miss Clemmer, sister of Mrs. Horau. i8.qu.tte Biok with an attack of appendicitis, An operation ma'y be necessary. • i • A second son at Dr, Rist's dates from Monday noon.

He came Wednesday. Mrs. I. M, Finnel's sieter is to be married at Corwith Sunday, This is not the sister who was to Algona, but Awarded "Highest Hoiwr^WorW's Fair, PR, next, March 10. Those who heard Etedloy say he will be the feature of the lecture course. The total school enrollment in Algona is 033, 43 more than last year at this time. At this rate the now school building will soon be overflowing. A male quartette at D. T. Smith's express office sang in the gramophone Monday. If the machine was all right it has a good song in its repertory. Tho audience Saturday evening applauded the orchestra, and the members of the company complimented it. It Was a splendid musical organization. The city election comes in less tlian three weeks. Several arc named for mayor and several for assessor. The caucuses will doubtless be called soon, E. Wright was over from Spencer and attended the W. W. Jones' sale Monday. Ho says ho was willing to pay two prices but all the stock brought three. I. Frye loaded two cars Monday and got started for Missouri yesterday. He has rented his farm to a son-in-law of A. D. Barker, who comes from Elmore. Rev. H. J. Frothingham comes from Chicago Saturday and will occupy the Presbyterian pulpit Sabbath morning and evening, He will also preach each evening of next week. Mayor Boyle, it seems, was more seriously injured than he thought in his smash-up while going to West Bend. He is getting up, however, without long confinement. Tho six Presbyterian pastors of this county met Monday and organized a county association. Next meeting will be in Burt, subject: "Revivals—The advantage of and the dangers of." A superintendents' and principals' round table meeting will be held Saturday, Feb. 20, at Emmetsburg. A fine program has been prepared. Prof. Carroll has a part on the program. Guy L. Taylor went to Clear Lake yesterday to visit a few days with Charley Grimm and try his new gun. Grimm was in Algona last week on his way home from San Antonio, Texas. Mrs. H. E. Stacy has contributed some items from Father Taylor's diary of 30 years ago, which will appear'in due season. It is interesting now to read the notes he made of the doings then. The Keene-Hanford company came on a special from Eagle Grove, and were taken after the play was over by the night train north', going right through to St. Paul, where they play a week. 'Squire Raymond was in Germania and Ledyard Monday and yesterday prosecuting for stealing wheat aud for for selling mortgaged property. The county attorney ia earning his foil salary this year. The second dog case was heard at Wesley last week. Lichteig and his son both swore they did not take Mrs. Rilev's doff and shn RWDPA AIA Riley's dog and she swore they As it was two to one the justice missed the defendants. dis- Attorney Morling was here last week and part of this taking depositions in a case which involves the title of the lots the Wigwam and E. J. Gllmore's store are on. • Clarke & Cobenour are attorneys for the defense. There is very little discussion of the proposed library tax. The present law allows a two mill levy, but the library advocates ask only one mill. The "people will apparently vote on the proposal without much agitation. Mrs. A, L. Peterson hears good news from her husband. His entire recovery is believed to be but a matter of a few months, Her brother is with her to remain and she will keep the gallery open and attend to all business that comes. A good audience last evening enjoyed the graphophone entertainment given by the King's Daughters. Will. Hunt is an expert with the machine. D T Smith sang in it and G, L. Williams whistled, and it reproduced both distinctly. There was a big audience out Friday evening at Burt to hear S, D. Drake on the railway question, Senator Chubb went from Algona. They say S. D made a good speech and was not too radical. He should deliver it in Algona and let us all hear it, The first of the final school examinations at the public schools has been held and in every department the scholarship averages nearly five per cent, above previous records. The second examination is the one on which promotions are inade for next year, While in Des Moines at the supervisor' meeting John G. Smith learned that all the counties that have adopted the email district plan of doctoring the o h it, He j n Kosby the Folowayand O. Phillips, are in durance vile for stealing 23 sacks of wheat from Harvey Larson, who lives north of Swea City. They were caught at Buffalo Center, but had left the wheat near Ledyard. They will come before the grand jury next month. Speaking of old times Mrs. A. L. Seeley hns hunted out the diaries in which her late husband kept a record of the years 1855-6-7. They had been left with other old relics and the mice hnd made a nest in the very heart of the books for 1855-7. The book for 1856 is preserved and is very interest 4 ing. A few days after John G. Smith was appointed administrator of the estate of Alex. Patterson a bill came from an insurance company for S3.10 on ati assessment. Mr. Smith, on his own responsibility, sent in the money. It now turns out that his action saves the children the insurance; a matter of to them, D. H. Hutchins sold his farm in Union township last week to A. D. Clarke of Cresco. Mr. Clarke sold his farm some months ago and since then has looked about in Minnesota, Missouri, Dakota, etc. Ho came to the conclusion that Kossuth was the best after all and so is settled again. He gets a good farm. Frank Nicoulin is planning to do the most extensive wholesale Inisiness in buggies arid carriages the coming season that he has ever done. Algona will be his headquarters and ho will cover all the surrounding territory. He is getting out a big lot of circulars and advertising matter now and will soon be in the field. Gllmore's delivery wagon went sailing up State street Saturday on a run just as Mrs. D. Rice was coming into town with a high spirited team. The runaway sleigh swung so as to knock one of her horses legs out from under it and for a moment a general smashup seemed imminent. Fortunately the Horse got up uninjured and. was held. It was a close call. The Courier comments on the decline of the butter business. J. J. Ryan says that if farmers can be guaranteed a shilling a pound the year round they can get rich, and every creamery report yet published shows an average of 15 cents for last year. The Courier is hard up for a calamity when it cites the butter business. If everything were in as good shape as that that is all most people would ask for Case Wiltse has been renting a farm of F. H. Vesper north of Bancroft. Last week ho left taking par-t of Mr. Vesper's property and later the house was burned down. He and a friend named Miller assaulted Mr. Hill, who was left in charge. It is a mixed up affair which will doubtless occupy the attention of the grand jury. Mr. Vesper does not know whether he will get his insurance or not, as Wiltse had got his belongings out of the house before it was burned. Preparations are under way for the annual bean supper. It will be given a week from next Monday evening at the courthouse and Gen. Given, state commander, will be present. It is expected that he and Rev. Landis will deliver addresses, that a lady speaker will be secured and that Miss Hancock will give a reading. Music and the feast will fill out an unusually good program. Dr. SheetK, E. Tellier, and Dr. McCoy have the program in charge and it will be announced in full next week. AMONG THE ADVERTISERS. Grove for groceries Look out for bargains at the Farmers' Exchange.
