F, Cooke went to Des Moines last week on military matters. The Register notes: A delegation of national guard of- fleers was in the city Friday to consult with the house military committee relative to the creation of a staff corps of the medical department of the guard. Among thole who were here were General James Bush Lincoln of /Vmes, Captain W. T. Ohautland of Fort podge, Captain A; B. Shaw of Cor- nig, General R, W. MoManus of Davenport Col. Thos. F. Cooke of Algona, Col, H. H. Canfleld.of Boone. The senate military bill hp not passed tne house yet carrying wife it the national guard appropriation and the representatives incidentally took an ifttevestia its pasaage while visiting at the state bouse. Third warders vote at the Larnson building. Dr. Morse came home from Chicago yesterday; Mrs. Rev. Sinclair has been quite sick, but is improving. Mrs. Ed. Hackman is quite sick. Dr. Tribon has her in charge. Geo. Lister and Fred. Holman got started for Canby, Minn;, last week. Wm. Cleary announces that he will not be a candidate Monday for assessor A six-inch snow fall Sunday night. It was light and no wind was blowing. The annual bean supper is one of Algona ? s fixed and best entertainments. Fay Reed is with Charley Smith at Blue Earth City in the horse business. Charley Rlst has bought a place adjoining Hobart and is now a resident of that thriving city. Shore Acres comes in four weeks. It will be the finest attraction ever put into the opera house. Burt is to have a big firemen's dance next week Thursday evening. The harp orchestra will play. The teachers hiid a big meeting at Ledyard Saturday, Supt. Reed says. They meet at Burt Saturday, March 13. Geo. Hackman is selling off his farm outfit and will take a layoff for awhile. He is not fully decided what he will do. Mrs. B. F. Grose has a handsome new Smith-Premier typewriter in the county clerk's office since yesterday morning. The firemen took in §95 at their masquerade and cleared $50. They will have their new uniforms about paid for. Several at West Bend have the gold fever. The Ragged Top mines, where E. H. Warren is located, are causing the excitement. S. D. Drake was too hoarse to speak Saturday evening and was unable to meet his appointment in Union township. A later date will be arranged. A son-in-law of Barnet Devine, Jas. McCowan, living west of Burt, is under arrest for stealing a seeder. He will be heard before 'Squire Clarke Friday. The Hedley lecture comes a week from next Wednesday evening. Those who have heard him say it will be the best feature of the course. He is an entertainer, Rev. Southwell is preparing a history of the 40 years of Methodism in Algona in verse for the coining anniversary celebration. Rev. Southwell is a poet, and it will be worth while to be present. Railway Commissioner C. H. Davidson, once an Algonian, and late state commander of the Iowa G. A. R., stopped in at the beau supper an hour last night. Ho was going to Des Moines. It is rumored that a campaign for woman suffrage is to be made in Iowa this coming season, and that a big convention will be held in each county. Kossuth will be one of the chief points in the circuit. The Humboldt Republican refers to Bailey of Britt as "the champion Har of Kossuth county." Has Kossuth been getting such a reputation that " Adam Biglyre" is credited to us as a matter of course? Dr. Kenefick was called by telegram to Emmetsburg last night to consult in the case of a dying woman, and given three hours to get there with a team. He drove to Whittemore and got a relay of horses there. Why are so many buyers coming in to pick up blocky young horses at $40 and $50 a head? And where are the three and four-year-old colts coming from in a year or two? The farmer who sees the point will make some money on horses. The latest word from Miss Clemmer, who went to Chicago last week with Dr. Morse to undergo a surgical operation, is that she is out of danger. Her case was considered hopeless and her promised recovery is a source of pleasure to many friends. The Cressy stereoptican entertainments at the Baptist church were not very well attended, not so well as they deserved, _ Mr. Cressy has a fine light and fine views and everyone was well repaid for being present. He went to Whittemore yesterday. Mark Sarohett, who went to California a year ago, sent • his brother three wild cat skins last week. He is located about 70 miles south of San Francisco and enjoys the climate, -his health being much improved, He expects to come home this fall some time. W, S. Borland sends us a circular advertising the mineral spring water he has the Chicago business for, which bears this suggestive heading, "What Is In the Water You Drink?" He is doing a big business in Chicago, and Sunday and after church was over walked home. The distance is good three miles and the roads were not very passable. Mr. Zahlton dates back to the very beginning in Kossutb, and his hale and hearty old age is a pleasure to his many friends. Lawyers Clarke, Swelling and Sullivan went to Spencer Monday to argue the land case before Judge Thomas involving the real estate the Wigwam is on. Messrs. Clarke and Sullivan represent the defense, while Mr. Swotting appears with Soper & Morling of Em- tnetsburg After arriving the bearing was postpone'd. They will go again later. Washington's birthday was patriotically observed in the public schools. In the high school room some 40 old soldiers met and Rev. Landis represented them in a talk to the students. An address was then given by Rev, Sinclair. In all the rooms special exercises were held, and all the rooms were decorated. Everybody speaks highly of the exercises. Marriage licenses continue to evidence the return of confidence. This week they have been issued to Jas. O'Brien and Catherine Boyle, Jim H. Grotness and Mary A. Snowdall, Chas. A. Buffham and Maud L. Hawkes, Wm. T. Bindewall and Maggie Well, B. F. Dutton and Susan Brass, Chas. G. Quick and Anna Peterson, Geo. E. Butterfield and Ida Countryman. THE UPPER DES MOINES two weeks ago had Case Wiltse arrested for taking attached property from the F. H. Vesper farm. It was his son S. I. Wiltse instead. Another son was convicted of stealing coal at Germania last week. 'Squire Palmer meted out justice to him. He found that, for a theft of $20 he could fix a fine of $100. Figuring from this he assessed Wiltse $12.60 for stealing $2.60 of coal. THE UPPER DES MOINES expected to have Gov. Carpenter's account of his experiences with the Indians, when he and Lewis H. Smith were on the survey in northern Kossuth in 1855, for this issue, but is disappointed. The governor notifies us, however, that he will write the sketch and it will appear in due season. We want to finish up the 1855 history before dropping the Indians for the season. The mules raffled of last week by Wm. Carlon and won by Al. Calkins, have a history. Probably but few people in Algona know that they are the mules Emmet Reed bad when he was murdered down in Taylor county, and that they are the mules Foster took with him after hiding the body. They are a splendid team. Foster took two mule teams and one horse team. The white horse Albert Reed drives «is one of the horses. Foster had all the teams across tbe Missouri into Nebraska when he was caught. Mr. and Mrs, Thos. Sarchett started Monday morning for Center Point, Linn county, with the remains of Mrs. Sarchett's father, A. A. Newland. Mr. Newland died Saturday morning at the advanced age of 93. He has been a resident here only a few months and has been an invalid. He was a member of the Christian church 50 years. He was also a Mason of long standing, and a delegation of Algona Masons attended the remains to the Milwaukee depot, where they were taken to Nora Junction and tben south. The financial statement of the independent school district is published It shows that $7,139.50 has been paid to teachers the past year, $2,953.16 for contingent expenses, and $8,370,28 for school house. There is a balance on hand in the teachers and school house funds, but unpaid warrants in the contingent fund. The board estimates the amounts necessary for next year as follows: Teachers, $7,000; contingent, $2, 500; school bouse, $2,500; a total of $12,000. The election comes a week from Monday and directors are to be chosen to succeed D. A. Haggard and C. H. Blossom. When values are inducements we *ivill sell you Our prices are right.

Wadsworth and Auditor Calkins. They gave the gold watch to Mrs Bishop, who was dressed as a Scotch lassie. Mrs. Bishop is the lady who with her husband got up home dramatics some years ago, when the Algona company visited Bancroft. She makes her home at A. P. Hall's. Miss Sohirmer won the second prize dressed as Topsy. Albert Hackman won the first prize for the men, dressed as a tramp, and Pay Reed won second as an Irish policeman. There were a lot of fine costumes and the hall was crowded with spectators. Senator Chubb accepts all the questions suggested for discussion, and adds one on the effect of the volume of money on prices. The discussion will come in April or later and will cover four points; Has the farm price of farm produce declined; has the general decline in prices been at the expense of the farmer and laborer out of debt- has the decline in prices injured the debtor; has the decline in prices been oue mainly to an insufficient volume of money. Each will occupy not to ceed a column on each topic, the wonts to be printed side by B je, There will be no running debate to weary readers, and the discussion ought to be of general interest.
