On account of the pressure of his business correspondence the matter after a letter or two was turned oyer to THE UPPER DES MOINES and several letters have passed back and forth. The last from the professor suggests its own problem to the citizens of Algona and the surrounding county. It is as follows: AFTOX, Dec.24.-Dear Sir: I have been delayed in answering your favor of the 18tn inst, by the December issue of our paper. It is not my purpose to try any experiment in Aleona.

Whalen of Emmetsburg, convicted of rape. The only corroborating evidence was the testimony of an Emmetsburg named Taylor, who testified Whalen told him about the occurrence at the time. A number of witnesses impeached Taylor's reputation lot truth and veracity. In granting a new trial Judge Thomas said it was became of insufficiency of the evidence. The Emmetsburg Tribune Bays: Whalen feels very down-hearted at the outc his inno enough scholarships for the first term to insure a working school from the start. If on visiting the town, looking over the building and the prospects fora successful school, he can assure the people that he will make a permanent school, can Algona afford to let the chance slip?

Landls handed in his resignation as pastor of the Baptist church Sunday morning and Sunday evening preached his farewell sermon. He has three calls to larger fields and next Sunday will preach in a city of 35,000 people with a view of accepting a unanimous invitation. Algona will regret to lose him, but all will recognize the propriety of his occupying abettor pulpit than we can afford. He is exceptionally strong as a pulpit orator and can fill any station in any of the larger cities. He is a genial man and has made many friends here, who wish him ample field for the exercise of his line talent. The clock at Sheetz' ran 11 days and some hours.
