THE ES MCHMMi-' AtGONA, IOWA, Wlfel^i^liE^^ >cm f t Get aught with advertisements of cheap stoves in foreign papers. You will pay dearly for it in the end if you do. If you will take the pains to inVesti* sate you will find that no first-class stove house ever sells its goods to " mail order" stores. "First-class" stoves are sold only through regular dealers in the various towns and cities throughout the country—not sold by fflail of peddled by wagons. Buying a stove is a good deal like iUYING A HORSE. I You depend not only upon the looks, but largely upon the pedigree and the " word" of the party from whom you purchase. If you should send $25 bv tnail for a horse that is "guaranteed to be as good us any $100 horse on the market" twelve chances out of every dozen you will find that vou have "paid too much for your whistle." So if is with stoves. We have CHEAP stoves if that is what you want. Then again we have stoves and ranges that we guarantee to be the equal of the best made. Nothing but the best of iron used; extra heavy castings to withstand the severe strain of soft coal: white enameled oven doors and racks', fire backs guaranteed for 15 years. The "Buck's" stoves have a pedigree extending back nearly a quarter of a century, and no stove is allowed to remain where it does not give satisfaction. Did you ever see one? If not let us show vou one at our store, or better still give you the names of some two dozen of our best families in town who have used them the past year. O. M. DOXSEE, Heurd.' A narrow escape from a serious explosion occurred at F. Mi Taylot's home Sunday morning. The kerosene used for kindling the fire did not ignite until gas had formed. When it did ignite the top of the stove came off and coal soot was distributed in every nook and corner of the house up stairs and down, C.

Eryelding SEMI-LOOAL NEWS NOTES. Jlear Lake has been having a sensa- jfn, in which L. Carter, father of our p. Carter, has been a central Jrure. Mr. Carter is an active mem- |r of the Methodist church, and has an tried for resorting to bad busi- .bss methods. It seems that a jury of. Iven men sat on the case and that Mr. Barter was defended by Mr. J. J. llark of Mason City. The jurymen We well known citizens of Clear Lake fnd vicinity—Jas. Pester, J. L. Hare, lhas. Shattuck, Darwin Culver, C. fimonson, Wesley Benner and W. H. lhanafelt, and they brought in a unanimous verdict of guilty. The affair Iroseover a business deal, in which Mr Carter and others traded a stock •61 general merchandise at Clear Lake Ito a Mr. Moore of Eagan, S. D., for his 1220 acres of land. The claim is made fthat the stock of goods was invoiced to fhim at a greatly inflated value.

So far as Company K Is concerned there is not a private that desires Foster for colonel, and all would express themselves as opposed to him if they had the opportunity. We believe in every man being equal and If the present method of selecting the officers is kept up it will drive every self- respecting man from the ranks and leave only those who think that at some time they will get to be an officer and those who don't care a continental for the appearance or military discipline of the guard and only join to have a big time the six days they are in camp. Charley Smith is evidently cutting a wide swath up at Blue Earth City with his horses. The Post says he has 17 in hand. It gives a half column description of the four new ones brought from St. Louis, and concludes by saying: We congratulate Mr. Smith not only upon the many fine thoroughbreds and standard-bred animals owned by himself, but the many promising horses now under his careful and intelligent training. has had the Algona i meeting in mind a long time. yi: It is not that we have for- the many kindnesses of our na friends in the past or are un- ^'ful for the present feeling that we •lure exists among our many friends pe toward the editor of this paper, at our columns have not overflown th words of praise and commendation £ the attitude of Algona's good men d fair women toward all the editors general and our editor in particular £b the late gathering of the Upper Des oines Editorial association at that mace. The fact is that we have been IQ busy working for 'others that we bave been obliged to hold our editorial vanity and personality in the back- round for a season— until perhaps too ate to have any point except to remind Bur friends that were words as plentiful i thoughts, our columns would be full overflowing of the .best wishes and ynizons of our editor towards the progressive and liberal hearted people of Algona. The treatment awarded Ihe editors on their visit to Algona has ieen but the usual exhibition of friendliness of the always friendly and appreciative Algonians, so we pass that. The entertainment and attractions provided have never been excelled any- bere, Wherever the association may p in future these acts will always be Femembeved and the recipients will "iways watch for opportunities to re* tjprocate. -7- *-H -f* J.

Ryan to buy cattle to feed: Jim found that he had a large stock of soft corn on his hands. He couldn't dispose of it for eight cents a bushel, and he didn't want to let it rot. He asked his old farmer friend what he should do, and was promptly advised to buy young cattle and feed it to them. Jim said he thought he could invest the money better in some other way. '' Arrah, now Jimmie," urged his advisor, "shure I know ye won't be after makin' a gradle out of it, but think how the poor crathers'll be injyin themselves all winter atin that earn." So Jim put his money into "feeders" and now every time a chance turns up where he might have invested it to better advantage he drives out to the farm and gets some satisfaction out of watching the "crathers injyin" themselves.

Good cellar, cistern, well, and a lot of nice shrubbery. A small payment only is required down. Inquire at this office.— 23 ON account of sickness in my family I desire to sell my interest in the Algona brick yard, cheap for cash or will exchange for good land, 18m6 JOHNOSTBUM, An alleged agent for the Marshalltown Press solicited subscriptions in Algona last week. All he wanted was ten cents down, and it now appears that the ten cents went down. No one has seen his paper yet and it Is said that the agent took a hundred or more dimes. He was making about $10 a day at that rate, not bad for these times. The cemetery association has taken a wise step. It has set aside nearly $500 in a permanent fund to be kept intact, the income to be used in maintaining the grounds. Hereafter each year half the net income will be added to this fund and gradually a reserve will be built up which will keep the grounds permanently in excellent repair. THE UPPER DES MOINES stands squarely with J. J. Bynn when he talks as a farmer and not as a politician. It refers the Courier to his testimony on the butter business. When the Courier can show that he is not right we will bring in new evidence. But until then we rest the case wholly on his testimony. The butter business will make any farmer rich at the prices during 1896. Mrs. Quincy Hudson, who lives at San Jacinto, Cal., sent some relics of a Chinaman, who was murdered because he became converted, to Dr. Hudson. They were on exhibition at the Congregational church Friday evening, and an interesting program was given concerning the history of Chinese mission work, as well as the story of this Chinaman. A good audience was present. S. H! McNutt is going to bring a rooster to the county fair next fall with a history. Last season a lady with an eye to business sold a lot of eggs at a store, which is not mentioned. The eggs had not been left long before one of them began to crack open and shortly a chicken made its appearance. Mr. MoNutt was present at the time and the merchant gave the youngster to him. He took it home and cared for it and now he has as lusty a chanticleer as there is in the county. He ought to win a premium. Company F may get a new kind of vacation this summer. Gov. Drake is in receipt of an invitation to send the entire state guard to the celebration of the anniversary of the battle of Wilson's creek, Missouri, in August. The executive committee for the occasion includes the governors of Missouri, Kansas, Iowa, Arkansas and Texas, the states that had troops in the battle 36 years ago. It is proposed to have each state send the same number of regiments that it had in the original battle, and to give a sham battle on the original field, under commanders who served at the battle. Gov. Drake, who served in Missouri two years, is impressed with the plan, and wants to send the Iowa guard to this celebration instead of holding the regular summer encampments. It. is possible this will be* done if members of the guard desire it. Wtti. fe« f e*-ett86tl fof del-men Nomlilnted aftd Sleeted. Four big caucuses were held in Algona last evening.
