A, WroiiRlit iron Range Company Now PeddUue In Kosauth la Put Under «1 0,000 Bonds In 8t, fcpule. KosBUth is being visited by a steel range company which J 8 peddling stoves at about $gO more than they are sold fop }n Algona. An investigation by buyers will show that this is the fact, • This company holds forth at St. Louis, and last week was put under $10,000 bonds by Judge Fisher, to quit their business. The case is fwiiy re< ported in the St. I^ouis papers. W.bQlbep the agents here will obey the injunction or opt remains to be seen, Whether buyers will be liable i§ also a that they should consider. §HEUY MARBMB POTIBQNE, Head Stones, Monuments* j^^^flW * l ^^fi' t * f^^^P^^^W^^^^^W^^^^w 1 H^& ( Mrs. E. P. McElroy fell a week ago and hurt her side quite severely. She has been confined to her bed, but is now able to be up and about. The Rebekahs and their brethren had a fine time at Odd Fellow hall last Friday evening. The music and the lunch were both enjoyed. At tho Buttorfleld sale in LuVerne township 18 calves under a year old averaged $19 a head, which beats the Vipond sale of 25 calves at $16 a head. Monday night 40 feet of water in the standpipe escaped. It was thought that a water main must have burst. None was discovered yesterday, however. . Shore Acres will please more people than anything ever given in the Algona opera house. When it is over more people will say that it cannot be excelled. Frank Smith was up from Des Moines last week. He says the report that he and J. B. Jones would go ahead with their private cemetery is unfounded. They will drop it. In the Brewster district in Wesley they voted on letting the church use the school house, and the church people came out ahead. This will probably end tho trouble. Prof. -Dorcas visited the normal school last week in the interests of the state university. The normal school certificate takes students into the university without examination. THE UPPER DES MOINES omitted mention of the little girl at Guy Grove's last week. She came Tuesday, and is flourishing just as well as though her arrival had been duly announced. County Attorney Raymond was prosecuting a couple in Bancroft yesterday for obtaining money fraudulently, Today he is at Swea City prosecuting two more for the same offense. One of the justices in Kossuth sends in insane cases to the county commissioners under a peculiar warrant. It reads, " whereas so and so is charged with the crime of insanity." That is a new version. B. C, Shaw, the 1857 pioneer of Irvington, bas contributed two copies of his " Across the Plains in Forty-nine" to the Algona library. It is a book every boy and girl and everybody else ought to read. Whittemore will furnish a sensation in the next term of court in the form of a divorce case, Mr, and Mrs, J, W. Wllibrldge have decided to dissolve partnership, The Champion says no reasons are public yet. The attention of the salary debaters is called to the new schedule for the county clerk proposed in Des It will increase the present salary in Kpssuth. Perhaps Kossutb is not above wh&t it should be. beeo near There are 15 candidates for marshal and the woods is full of would-be street commissioners. In the mean time the town has two good officials. Addison Fisher has arrived at the dignity of being a great grandfather. His grandson, Henry Fisher, who was married a year ago to M. O'Rourke s daughter, rejoices in a son and heir since Saturday. Mr. Fisher looks too young to be a real good great grandparent. Geo. E. Clarke and E. V. Swelling spent most of last week in Emmetsburg Irving a slander case, Struecker vs. Will. Struecker wanted §2,000. After several days some changes were made in the pleadings and the case goes over. Mr. Clarke represents the plaintiff and Mr. Swelling the defendant. Mrs. A. L. Peterson gets word from Independence that her husband is about wholly recovered and that he will be able to leave in a couple of weeks. She expects him home by March 20. He has been putting in his time in the photographic studio at the asylum and doing lots of work. The doctors say his trouble will not come back, which will be good news to many friends. There is every present appearance of a wet season. J. W. Sullivan went to Iowa City Thursday. He says at Marshalltown the water in the railway yards was running into the box cars, and houses were flooded. Between Tama City and Toledo the tracks were under water. He says he never saw such floods before in that section. Here in Kossuth the water supply is oyer abundant. It will be a wet spring. Marshal Hays predicts it will be a late spring. Mrs. Craig Calkins and Mrs. Ed. Hackman were taken to Chicago last week. They went to the Presbyterian hospital and Monday the surgeons operated upon Mrs. Calkins, yesterday taking Mrs. Hackman. Mrs. Caulkins has had a terrible siege at Burt and again at Algona, and still the Chicago physicians think she can pull through. Mrs. Hackman's case was not considered so. severe, but she is dangerously sick. The Des Moines Saturday Review bas a note of interest: Mr. J. J. Wilkinson, who a year ago last January became secretary and manager of the Iowa National Life association, and to whose ability and energy as an insurance man the organization owes a very successful growth during 1896, was induced, on Jan. 1, to resign his position and taKe that of superintendent of agencies for all of Iowa, for the Bankers' and Merchants' Life association of Chicago. The Methodist people have made the start for a new church in celebration of their 40th year in Algona. In spite of the storm Sunday morning they held their anniversary services, Rev. Yetter preaching a very able sermon, and Rev. Southwell reading his entertain-, ing poem, which is given elsewhere. It was expected to begin the financial part of the work Sunday, but that will be taken up later. The Methodists are entitled to and will have as good a church as anybody has. Marsh Stephens don't grow old. Here is the Ledyard 'Leader for it: M. Stephens was up north the first of the week and when he got back as far as Elmore he found that the train for the south had gone. Mr. Stephens wishing to do some business in Ledyard and then go to Algona on the 11 o'clock train, took a tie pass via the C. & N. W. and arrived in ample time to transact his business and catch the train for Algona. Pretty good for a man that has seen as many years as Marsh has. Gov. Carpenter's account of his and Mr. Smith's experiences with the Indians up near Armstrong in 1855 has been received and will appear next week. Mr. Smith has also written of his coming to the county and of his experiences on that survey. Mr. Call will add an account of the trouble south of Algona that same summer, thereby closing the chapter of Indian history which precedes the Spirit Lake massacre. All will be entertaining and valuable contributions to Kossuth's pioneer history. Some time ago the ladies of the Algona whist club, who constitute half of that society, and one of the male members, who. added enough for a majority, got together and ordered a sleigh ride at the club's expense, and after the ride was over took a vote oh an oyster supper, which was declared carried. The young man furnished the wherewithal, the treasurer not being present, and next day presented bills to the other male members, who have steadily refused to pay their share. THE UPPER DES MOINES agreed with J. J, Ryan not to mention him in connection with the affair, or it would go more into detail. The tickets for Shore Acres will be sold Monday morning at 8 o'clock at Ehlers & Falkenbainer's, first come first served, no registering, each buyer limited to six. A section in the parquet and in the dress circle is reserved for the visitors from outside towns. The limit of six tickets makes this necessary as the visitors like to be together, and more than six come from several towns.- The prices will be 25 cents lower than for Keene except in the dress circle. The roost of the seats will be $1 and 75 cents each. This is a half dollar less than people will pay to see the same company in Rough on Your Wife, colds if a pair of But she won't suffer so much from you show prudence and get her extended sole WELT SHOES.
