THE tJMffl DBS MOINES: ALGONA, IOWA, WEDNESDAY. DECEMBER 1. 180?. A287 Last week we offered an elegant 14k, 15yr Lady's gold filled watch for $7.85, fitted with an American movement and fully guaranteed, but having only disposed of SEVEN of them at these remarkably low figures, we feel that it Is not just what you want, (and your wants are what we are looking after these times), so we will offer you this week a 20yr solid gold filled Lady's watch fitted with an Elgin or Waltham movement and fully guaranteed, at the wonderfully low price of $11.70, com plete. These prices are about one-half what you paid for these goods a little over two years ago, and they cost more money at the factory today than they did at the above date. We again state that we are positively the lowest priced watch "house ever in Algona, and if you are in the market for this line of goods you cannot afford to buy elsewhere. We lead, others follow ; we say it and we mean it. Come in and see if we don't. RAILWAY TIMS CARDS. ^~^~ ------ ~~- ----- - -— - — -~-~ CHICAGO, MILWAUKEE A ST. PAUL MOAL TRAINS W*9T.

We, the undersigned, members of the school board of district township o£ (Xyz,) in the county of Kossuth, do hereby contract for seven sets of Kennedy's mathematical blocks, provided a majority of said board sign this agreement, for whicli we agree to pay M. A. Blodgett or ageut the sum of twenty-five dollars a set. We hereby authorize the officers of said board to issue a warrant for same payable 13 months after date without ln Now Mr. Angus informs- ^directors of those townships where Mr. Blodgett obtained a warrant on the above contract that they themselves are personally liable. That would be so, provided they were directors for some private corporation, for then they would be agents for a private concern and would be liable to their principal, the "private corporation," where the public at large has no way of . knowing the Agent's authority. But here it is different These directors are public agents and the ?aw presumes the public to know how far -a public agent's authority .reaches.

Tho clothing trade in Algona has been big this fall. Saturday was the second best clay Kraft has had in the clothing trade, and Durdall says this fall's trade is tho best of any year since ho came.

His friends, however, had a bond ready for him and he took out a license also, and the talk drew the biggest crowd ever at a sale. I he upshot of it all is that he has now a lot of sales in prospect, and a reputation that extends all over that section and he contemplates using that Minnesota license to good purpose.
