Berryman of Bancroft was spoken of as likely to be appointed on the state pharmacy board by Gov. Shaw. The county pharmacy society had arranged to push his candidacy, but it was found to be too late. Mr. Berryman had a big showing of strength. C. B. Matson writes, Jan. 6, "We are in Texas about five hours' ride from El Paso going at the rate of about 40 miles per hour. I am in company with S wetting. We did not meet Mr. Clarke or Judge Quarton at Port Worth as we expected, but will probably meet them at El Paso." Bishop Fowler preached in the opera house Sunday morning to all the building would hold. A sermon of greater power was neyer heard in Algona. At its close he conducted the new church movement, and a more genial and successful solicitor for such an enterprise would be hard to find. Col. Thos. F. Cooke is retained on Gov. Shaw's staff, and is again appointed state inspector of small arms practice. He has made an exceptional record in this position, and one that would have made him a leading candidate for adjutant general, had he not been pledged to Gen. Prime. At the Methodist church next Sunday morning the Woman's Home Missionary society will give a special program in the morning, and in the evening the pastor will give his lecture on "India," a treatment of that subject to which the public is invited and which has always been well received. The " Western Stars," or Smith concert company, open their series of concerts at Emmetsburg, Tuesday, Feb. 1. They will give one of the finest entertainments ever enjoyed in northern Iowa, because they are all accomplished musicians, They have several dates arranged in neighboring towns. The republican Globe-Gazette pi Mason City says: The most polished and thoughtful talk of the evening was given by Hon. Julius Chrischilles of Al' gonft, on "Jackson and the West." Mr. ChHschilles is a gentleman of literary ability and has contributed to some of the best magazines in the country. The opera house was well filled for " Side Tracked," and the audience enjoyed a rip-roaring melodrama in which the vlllian wound up his career with the usual "lost, lost," While the Innocent victims of his wiles were safe In the protection of each other's arms. The specialties were good and everybody seemed to be happy. I. M. Finnell Is now a full partner ib the Courier. He has bought a half interest Of Mr. Hinchon and when the latter retires from the postoffice they will combine their efforts to make a great organ for the allied opposition. Mr. Finnell is a good printer, and a good newspaper man, and we are glad he is to become a fixture in the Algona newspaper field, Contractor Crellin has work well along on the sewer ditch. The ground Is astonishingly dry down 20 feet. Years ago he would have had a good well all the way. Now the diggers use picks to the very bottom. The digging is in short spaces, between which he tunnels. The lowest man throws the dirt up to a platform hung In the ditch and a second man throws It out. It is a btg job, and he goes over 800 feet for $760. C. C. Chubb and Geo. E. Boyle came from Des Moines yesterday. They say Representative Farley hnd his pick of seats, has made a good impression, is the best looking man In the house, and is going to be on some good committees. It is even intimated that he will be on both the ways and means and appropriation committees, the two best in the house. Inasmuch as Mr. Farley is now representing all of Kossuth everybody will be pleased to know that he is doing it in the proper manner. There are many pleasant things about newspaper work. One of the pleasant- est is to get yearly reminders from long-time subscribers. Last week Geo. Martin of Armstrong noted his 23rd year as an UPPER DES MOINES reader. Twenty three years is not such a long time in one way, but it is a long time on a newspaper subscription list, and It Is a long time in the history of such rapidly growing sections as old Armstrong's Grove. Mr. Martin was one of the early comers up there, and he has enjoyed his share of prosperity with the rest. May he have 23 more years as enjoyable as the past have been. The Shawnee Quill of Jan. 7 has a note about Andy Dunlap, who is in Oklahoma: "The Oklahoma State bank recently organized and now doing business in Shawnee, is meeting with a flattering reception by the people of the city and surrounding country. The institution is worthy of the fullest confidence and it is only necessary to meet and become acquainted with the management to feel assured that fairness and courtesy will characterize their treatment of all customers. Mr. A. J. Dunlap is president; A. B. Dunlap, vice president; J. F. Bennett, late chief clerk of the Mammoth store, cashier." FOE TEE NEW OEUKOH. Tho Methodists Have Over $8,000 Already Plcdeted— Work Will Be- Kln Soon. Algona is now sure to have a handsome new church this spring. Because it will be handsome and a credit to the town everybody will help to build it. It is to cost $15,000 in any event, possibly $20,000. The subscription Sunday was among the church, but two or three outside the membership giving' anything. It amounted to $8,265, and will be binding when the full $10,000 is pledged. This is a very big subscription and proves the liberality of the Methodist people, and the sincerity of their present efforts. This $10,000 mark, which is the one set before work begins, will soon be reached. It should be passed readily, because everybody is interested if the town is to build anything, in having the best. Algona wants no more cheap public improvements, and the Methodists have struck out exactly right. Elder Yetter and Rev. Day are good planners and energetic workers, and they have some lay brethren who know a good thing when they see it and are willing to open their purse strings to get it. The town, irrespective of church proclivities, should join in the enterprise, MONEY—On first mortgages. Money—On second mortgages. Money—On short time. Money—At lowest rates. Money—Geo. C.

(Ruth, IV-4) " I thought to advertise thee, saying, buy it, before the inhabitants and before the elders of my people. If thou wilt redeem It, redeem it, out If thou wilt not redeem It, then tell me that I may know; for there la cone to redeem it beside thee. And he said, I will redeem it." Of course he did. He was doing business on the square. So are we. When we say we will redeem Or- loff'e Russian Grippe Cure if you don't find it the best cough cure you ever used we mean every word we say.

A appy New Year. Come and see us. James Patterson, A Good Cup of Coffee CANNOT BE MADE in a poor coffee pot. The ordinary tin ,pot is scarcely worth taking home, while the cheap granite pot will " chip off," when it becomes entirely disabled for further use. Our celebrated " Rochester" nickel plated coffee pot is one that will answer every requirement, being made of heavy copper and then nickel plated—it makes an article that will never rust or chip, and the price of nickel ware is now so reasonable that no one can aftord to buy anything else. When you buy Rochester goods you get the best made. If- you wish this exemplified place the Rochester goods alongside of ordinary nickel goods and draw your own conclusions. We keep ordinary nickel goods. We sell " Rochester nickel goods. C. M. DOXSEB, HARDWARE. NSURANGE Also Land, Loan and Collection Business.- Office over Algona State Bank.
