That is quite an Object these days. Sullivan & McMahon have put in a brand new Remington type writer, No. 1. It is a beauty. Dr. Keneflck's brother is going to bring a string of horses to Algona this summer. He has already secured the use of the fair grounds. O. B. Durdall is off to Chicago. That big stock of spring clothing will begin to arrive soon. Doxaee is going to give away a little Buck's range to the girls. He tells about it this week. Jas. Taylor's sale days have been very successful this spring. Keep an eye on the dates still to be filled. Nothing has been beard of J. D. Burns, the absconding tinner. It is reported &** the Buckeye company will hunt him up. Hogs show a slight gain in the local market, $8@8.10; corn remains at 80; oats, 10® lie; flax, 56c; wheat is a little off, 56o. J. F. Lacy is in Missouri selling his rope harness. He also represents a hardware firm which makes an asbestos sad iron. They want a machine shop at Forest City. The Summit says: Albert Lea, Algona, and Mason City now get that sort of trade, and it costs. Now that china painting is in vogue with the ladles, Langdon & Hudson's display of Haviland china is of special interest. The Haviland is the best ware there is. Why don't about twenty farmers adjoining Algona buy the Wilson mill and elevator and try co-operation? It is the chance of a lifetime, and there are twenty farmers who could invest the capital without noticing it. Esthervllle will pass on the question of a free public library Monday. C. W. Crimtn of that place writes to the attorney general and asks him three questions: , "Cah the matter of voting on the question of a public library be submitted at a special election, or must the same be submitted at the municipal election?" • "If submitted at the regular spring election, are women entitled to Vote on the question? If they are entitled to vote, haw are they to be supplied with ballots?" Mr. Remley answers at length. His conclusions only are of interest. He says to the first question: "I would not like to say that the proposition could not be submitted at a special election, but have no doubt that at. any annual municipal election the proposition may be submitted." * In answer to the second he says. 1 think the women have the right to vote upon the question of establishing a free Ub ms y th'ird answer is of local interest as it will require an additional lot of ballots for the Algona election. He says: "Ifthe proposition is printed upon the ballot with the list of candidates for city officers, and these ballots are given to the women voters and put in the same box, it would be impossible to tell whether the women voted for the officers of the city or not. !«•«>« women are entitled to vote, as I • think they are, then it becomes the duty of the election officer to provide a means whereby such vote may be made effective I will suggest that the best way. out of the dilemma is to have> a number of ballots struck upon which there is nothing but the proposition to the voters. These ballots can be given to the women who vote. They can be put in the same ballot box. There Is no unfairness in this to .any person. The riffhts of the women who vote are protected, effect is given tathelr vote^and I think such a method is in harmony with the spirit of the law, although there is no direct provision upon it." head oft the ater'agje. -— 5 — gest prise ever paid for a like » calves in the County.

Given of t>es Moines, commander of the grand army of the state and judge of the supreme court, was present, and after a song by the glee club gave an eloquent and patriotic address on Washington. The general was in the Mexican war, and the day marked the 60th anniversary of his entrance into the service making it doubly interesting to him. Miss Bertha Hancock's recitation was encored, and songs by the mole Octette consisting of Prof. Forde, Fred. Woods, G. E, Williams, and Garry Clarke Were received with great enthusiasm. In conclusion Rev. Landis gave a splendid oration. It was a program worthy of the occasion, and the occasion one long to be remembered. BIG. MAIL BOTTTE LETTIMB. Ambrose A.

Dolliver, when he stumps his district, uses a big tent which he purchased from a stranded circus. He had an appointment to address his constituents in a little Iowa town, but owing to the frosty weather the meeting was adjourned to, a grocery store in the village. Prominent among the furnishings of this room were a barrel of sauerkraut and a big hot stove in close proximity. The stove filled the room with a genial warmth, and inspired by its comfortable glow Dolliver was more than usually felicitous. In dulcet tones he pictured the glorious reign of pros- enritv soon to dawn upon the country and was mounting still higher in his splendid oratory, when right in the midst of one of his finest flights a tall Irishman loomed up from the little audience and caught the speaker's eye. "If ye plase, Mr, Dolliver, Mr. Dolliver, I rise to a pint of order." . "The gentleman may s.tate it," saia Dolliver in his most affable congressional way, ... •" Oi move you, soir, that a committee be appointed to put a horse blanket on that barrel of kraut, if I can git a ^Unmistakable wafts of incense from the barrel had permeated the room, almost overpowering the eloquence oi the distinguished speaker/ and the watchful Hibernian took this method to prevent a hasty adjournment. The motion was enthusiastically seconded, the comrnitte appointed, the horse blanket secured from a neighboring stable and applied to the use designated, and then Mr, Dolliver proceeded amid great applause. Years Behind tUe Times. A report comes of the "newest" thing out in Indiana. It is called a wolf hunt, and as it was played near Knox Thursday it promises to become one of the pleasantest recreations out of doors. In the Knox pastime 300 men formed themselves into a great circle, beating tom-toms and getting covered' with sheep-burrs as they advanced toward a common center in the thick woods. Two square miles of territory was encircled, and -when every man, boy, horse and dog was at the geometrical middle of this territory it sudden y occurred to the captain that H would have been very much more exciting « there had been a real wolf in the game. Still, a little thing like a mangy wolf, with fleas on him, by his absence will not stand in the way of popularity for this new game. The opportunity for blowing horns, bursting pumpkins and overturning fodder shocks is too necessary to the country sportsman s outing for any lack of wolf hide to discourage it. So successful was It considered that already there is talk of indoor wolf hunts for the midwinter season. We still have a few left— I I I it $5, $1.50 and $10, Regular price #10 to $26 Jf\S. TfYYLOR.
