The new bridge and the new sewer are giving a lot of men employment when they need it. How would it be to have all public work done at times when other business is at a stand still? Tho' new law compels every man to shovel the snow off his stdo walk with in 10 hours. If he don't the street com' misstonerls authorized to proceed at once without further notice.

Kossuth, dear Reporter, is not naturally compelled to follow anything or anybody. Koeuuth sets the pace? KosButh la sui generis, a class ill by itself. The chances always are that Kousuth will do as it blame ploas- os. ,,. Dr Gar-field was out Monday, looking better than for months. He has resigned from the board of ponBion examiners and with Dr. K« n r y n? 0 T,:ibon vacancies are to bo filled. Dr. 1 i on is the remaining member. We disliko to mention an Algonian for office, but if one can be chosen wo hope that Di. Tribon is retained on the board. Ho is a good member. Popular entertainers like Col. Copeland ought to have more respect for '•art for art's sake," and call their monologues something besides lectures. A lecture suggests a moral and people who will go a mile to dodge a lecture will go a mile to BOO a show. Conelancl in Algona was more amusing than most comedies, and the fun was clean. Behind it all was something to think about, and Bomething everybody who hoard him will think about in spite of himself. The opera houso should have been crowded.
