The county board of supervisors begins the new year with John G. Smith as chairman. He is eminently qualified for the place and will preside with dignity. He has made an excellent officer for the county. He and Mike Weisbrod were appointed a committee to attend the state meeting of supervisors at Des Moines this week and are now in the capital city. NEW GRADING CONTRACT. Notice will be published opening up the county grading to bidders for 1898. The first district will be the south 16 townships of the county, the second, the north townships. Each bidder must file with his bid a $2,000 indemnity company bond to secure the county. The board reserves the right to reject any or all bids. FOR A COUNTY DOCTOR. Notice of bids for the county doctoring will be published, both by districts and by the whole county. During the year past Dr. Morse has had the whole county at $800. There was an impression that the new law did away with the county doctor, but it seems not. The board will let contracts by districts or in lump as seems best when the bids are opened.

Penfield of Gilmore City was on the fast Northwestern night train and wanted to get off at Woolstock, the next station north of Webster City. The train does not stop there and he tried to jump off. His hand and one leg got caught under the wheels and were mangled. He dragged himself to the depot but could get no help and was found in the morning frozen fast to the boards. From the Burt Monitor, Treasurer Smith expected to have his son for deputy,'.but the First Nation al bank does not want to let him go. Geo. Paine and Del, Angus went to Evanston, 111., and looked over North western University. They came back and entered the university at Iowa City. The Good Will society at Plum Creek meets at Mrs. A. L. Seeley's tomorrow. Milly Mann of Portland is up and about after driving s, nail into his knee in such a way as to threaten serious trouble. The waiting room at the crossing north of Bancroft affords shelter for passengers while waiting 1 fop trains The room is always unlocked and there is a stove and kindling wood so that one can build a fire. The section men probably look after it once in a white. As a rule, though, instead of waiting there a couple of hours, passengers find it just as pleasant to start out and walk to the nearest station. BEMI-LOOAL HEWS NOTES, The woman suffragists are located at Des Moines for work with the legislature. Their headquarters, room 312 in the Equitable block, are in charge of Mrs. Ina Taylor of Ruthven, oldest daughter of G. H. Light. The Capital says she is one of the prominent workers in the ranks, who has devoted her time and her energies for some time to the cause. She has been assisting for some time Mrs. Evelyn H. Belden of Sioux City, who is chairman of the legislative committee and is superintendent of the petition work. + •*••*• Frederick Phinney, who directed the Iowa State band when it was present at the dedication of the Call opera house, has been lately at the head of a Chicago band.

A Better Looking Body Than the Legislature Meets In Algona and Does Business. The farmers of the Kossuth cooperative insurance company met at the court house yesterday. The report for the year by Secretary Blackford made a fine showing. Over $100,000 of new insurance has been added, making a total now of $1,198,128. The company has 1,000 members in the county, and the total losses for the past year have been only $1,630. The principal debate was over making all policies terminate at five years in order to secure a new adjustment of the value of property. The proposal was lost. A plan was adopted for having a new examination of the risk without terminating the policy. The officers for the new year are: C. B. Hutchins, president; G. S. Wright, vice president; E. Blackford, secretary; C. C. Chubb, treasurer. No more successful nor valuable institution has grown up in Kossuth than this mutual insurance company. WHAT WILL ASSESSORS DO? The Law Says Property Shall Be Listed at Vull Value-Will They Comply? Deputy Mart Weaver has been studying up the revenue laws and will take charge of the assessor's meeting tomorrow. All the assessors will be in and together will go over the law and learn their duties. The new law expressly provides that all property shall be listed at its full market value. The property owner swears to it, the assessor swears to it, and the equalizing board can brinc^ifhe assessor in and have him tell under oath how he arrived at his conclusions. It is needless to say that if this is complied with it will revolutionize assessments, If it is complied with every assessor in the county should do his full duty, to make it a fair deal all around.

They show a total receipt of $1,961.90 from the last fair. The total expenses, including $118 paid in Interest, were $1,958.60, leaving $3.40 on hand. These include: Paid In expenses of fair 8471.00 Races 044,50 Premiums 710.36 FOR A FOUR DAYS' FAIR. The agricultural society decided by unanimous vote to hold another four days' fair. The date will be fixed at the director's meeting w-hich comes the second Tuesday in March. NEW OFFICERS. The new officers of the agricultural society are: J. W. Wadsworth, president; B. M. Gardner, vice president; G. F. Peek, secretary; W. H. Bailey, treasurer; W. V. Carlon, marshal. Board of directors: T. H. Wadsworth, Algona; Bobert Welter, Buffalo; Fred Nicholson, Burt; J. G.

Kernan, Wesley; John Samson, Whittemore, This is a splendid lot of men and they will make the coming fair the best and biggest the county has ever had, THE STATE'S $200 AID. President Wadsworth reports that the county agricultural society is legally incorporated. All It lacks of getting the usual $200 from the state is a membership which pays $1 a year for the good of the society, Nothing was done at this time, as the state association expects to take some action this week, and the legislature will be asked to interpret the law, The Kossuth society can take steps to adjust itself after it is ascertained exactly what the state expects. THE SOCIETY'S FINANCES. The society now owes $1,200 for its new ground', with interest at seven per cent, since Jan. 1, 1895, and $300 on the old debt, with interest fully paid. It is in remarkably good shape, considering the bad years it has gone through, Another good season like that of last year will put it well on its feet.
