Every passenger on the car seemed to be "dressed up" and we imagined all were delegates to a convention of some kind somewhere, indeed I met on the train that day delegates going to three different conventions. The federation held its first regular session Wednesday morning in the Second Presbyterian church with an assemblage of over 600 women, half of whom were delegates and visiting club women outside of Dubuque. First the delegates tendered their credential cards and received a beautiful badge. The delegations were seated in the church alphabetically. Algona being the first on the roll call I had the pleasure of sitting on the front seat with delegates from Albia, Audubon, and Anamosa. These fi-ont seats were a little hard on our necks, but no matter we could see and hear each speaker perfectly. The address of welcome was given by Mrs. D. D. Richards, president of the Dubuque Ladies' Literary association, who is a beautiful little woman with pure white hair. The forenoon's work closed with the report of Mrs. Alice Fletcher of Marshalltown, chairman of the library committee, who gave a brief but thorough report of all public libraries throughput the state. • Out of 86 towns where the federation is represented 40 have public libraries. The traveling libraries are largely the result of the efforts of the members of the federation. The principal social function of the biennial was the reception given Wednesday evening by the Dubuque Ladies' Literary association in honor of the federation and its guests, Mrs. Ellen M. Henrotin, president of the general federation, Prof. Martha Cron of Chicago university, Mrs. Urquehart Lee, and Mrs. Grace W. Trout of Chicago. This reception was given in the Elks' lodge room on the seventh floor of the bank and insurance building, which was illuminated within and without. Flowers were in profusion everywhere, the large dinning room was beautifully festooned in the D. L. L. A, colors—shrimp, pink and cream. The beautiful rooms filled with beautiful women in beautiful costumes mingling with one another under the beautiful electric lights was truly a grand and beautiful sight—one long to be remembered. The church was filled to its utmost for Thursday evening's session, The music for this evening was very fine being furnished by Dubuque ladies. Mrs. Grace Trout of Chicago, the mother of four boys, spoke on "Our Girls and Boys." She is a bright, pleasant, public speaker, her lecture being full of humor and witty sayings, It was 10 o'clock when Mrs, Henrotin rose to speak, her address was to have been the principal address of the evening, but owing to the lateness of the hour she gave an informal talk of ten minutes. She told of her yision ten years hence—a .vision of the millenium —that is what the federation clubs are going to accomplish, when they get the men into the fold. That seems to be the aspiration that now fills the minds and hearts of the club leaders, '"Tis not good for man to live alone" therefore let him come into the clubs and share their benefits. Mrs. Henrotin is 1 a charming woman, To see her is to love her. Mrs. Marion Tredway of Dubuque, Mrs. Maria C. Bibbs of Boone, Mrs. Geo. W. Jones of LeMars, and Mrs, J. S. Clarke of Des Moines were elected delegates to the general federation. When Mrs. Howe rose to make her farewell address that wonderful voice was tired at last and between hoarsness and emotion she could hardly speak, The new officers were introduced and the meeting dismissed by the new president, Mrs. VanVechten. Great bouquets of roses and flowers had been traveling to the platform from the first session to the last until the ladies were almost hid from view by them. Maine's Federation of Women's clubs sent greetings saying that -'we are two souls with but a single thought." Congratulations were also received from Wisconsin F.

The Review says: Regal bouquets of bridal wreath, that is now in its glory,, were profusely used. Much regret was expressed that the pretty home would so soon be dismantled, and that Denison will lose Mrs. Spencer from our social club and church life. After serving refreshments, in which Mrs. Spencer was assisted by Miss King and Mrs. Flack, the guests lingered reluctantly to say a goodbye that must be a long one. Mrs. Spencer will make many warm friends in her new home, but we can assure her that the dearest friends are the oldest friends, and here's the place to find them. -f- -f- -4- The Fort Dodge Messenger says: There are 1,031 patrons of the creameries in Kossuth, 78 to a creamery. They have 10,848 cows, an average of 834 to a creamery. The total value of the butter output last year was $252,107.04, or $246 on an average for each patron. We cannot be at all proud of Webster county's rank as a butter producer, for we cut a small figure by the side of Kossuthl with a total value for our butter output of only $31,933.40. It is a singular fact that eyery county with a butter product above $100,000 is located in the north half of the state, -s- -*- •*• Dr. Frisbie of Des Moines has a note of interest in his report of the Congregational gathering: The meeting was held at Algona. It has been supposed that the name ''Algona" was a legacy from the Winnebagoes or Chippewas, and that the meaning of the word was some aboriginal conception of beauty or gladness. The place itself would warrant such a supposition. But this is an age of disillusions, and wo find that the name was simply devised by some lover of sweet' sounds. We will however hold to the idea that it means beauty and gladness, for so Algona will be remembered. Try a package of our Sanitarium Goods.

The Council Orders tho Sewers Extended or Closed—Will Meet Monday Evening to Talk Electric Lights. The council met Monday evening, agreed to help build a heavy sidewalk to the Northwestern depot, took more time on the Call park, ordered the sewers fixed or closed, and adjourned till Monday evening to hear about electric lights, The park proposition is as follows: To the Mayor and City Council of Algona, la.—Gentlemen: The executors of the estate of Asa C. Call, deceased, in consideration of the expenditure of the sum of eight hundred dollars, of which not less than $266 shall be expended in 1897, $267 in 1898, and the balance in 1889, upon the grounds described below, will convey to the city of Algona, Iowa, for park purposes only: Lot 1 in Block 240 of Call's avenue addition to the town of Algona, Iowa, and will also dedicate for street purposes Lot 6 in Block 244 and Lot 9 in Block 249 of said addition; the abovementioned property containing about eight acres, GEO. C, CALL, for Executors. THE BOARD OP HEALTH. The council met as a board of health and adopted resolutions on the two sewers that empty near the Chubb property as follows: Resolved, By the board of health of the city of Algona, Iowa, that upon investigation we find the -refuse from the sewer offensive and injurious to tho public health and that we therefore declare the same a nuisance and order its removal and abatement, and we hereby order a notice to be served Toy the marshal on the owners to remove or abate the same on or before July 1,1897, Ayes: White, Dingley, Paine, Mc^ Mahon, Slagle, .Chapin, Sayers.

The Armstrong Journal says that if Emmet ever gets to the dignity of a good court session it will have to annex part of Kossuth. It then adds: That county is too large anyway, What would be the matter of giving the two north tiers of townships to Emmet? That would make both counties about the same size, 20 townships each. Besides the north end could not make the Algona politicians any trouble then as they are liable to npw in the future, The north end tax payers would also ba,ye tbeir taxes reduce^ by being annexed to Eswet.. It would probably be & saMsfaetory ftrrapgemeBt iQ ali $3.1 PER ACRE And Ten Years' time in which to pay for it. Of course you can't buy improved farms for that, but the Northern Pacific Railway Company has hundreds of thousands of acres of FARMING LANDS in Central Minnesota, which it is selling to actual settlers at from $2.50 to $3.00 per acre, on TEN YEARS' TIME. The prices are Cheap, but The Lands are Good. Fine soil, splendid water, best of markets and near churches, schools and railroad stations.
