Company F is talking a little about an armory sometime in the future. D. T. Smith sang a fine solo at the Methodist church Sunday evening. The Masons have no definite plans for a new building. It is all talk up to date. Representative Farley has sent a fine lot of public documents to the public library. The prospect is that Kossuth will have four new Methodist churches this season. The city well stands at 809 feet and a new test will be made of it before it is dug deeper. A dance by the club with the harp orchestra is on for Friday evening at Clarke's hall. Geo. Hohn has sold his interest in the Ladendorff restaurant and will go to Minnesota. Mrs. Prof. Spencer continues in a critical condition. Bev. Day's father is Improving. The teachers meet at Bancroft Saturday. Everybody should go, and stay for Eli Perkins. Marriage licenses have been issued to Luman Davison and Lena Elman, W. Aldrich and Etta Carr. The city council adjourned Saturday evening until this evening, It is the regular monthly meeting. Glen Brunson and family have returned to Livermore. He is again getting up to his old weight. C. C. Chubb says there is no surplus feeding stock in the county, and that a lot of cattle have been shipped in. Treasurer Smith is moving into the Willey house near the Chubb home and will soon have his family with him. The mweury got down to zero Sunday night for the first time in some weeks. Last night it was down to 14 below. Frank Jenkinson sold a bull calf, three months old, to Mike Weisbrod yesterday for $40. That is the kind of stock that pays. C. C. Samson has been adding a second story to his home, the Sessions house on Dodge street, and in other ways improving. Bancroft is to have a two-story brick 60x90 feet this spring. That is a good starter. Kennedy Bros, of Bochester, Minn., will build. The new opera house company met last evening for an informal organization. The old company closed its lease of five years Monday. Myron Schenok was in Monday to inspect our gasoline engine. He says he shall put one in and pump water, grind feed, and run a separator with it. Studley's drug store is ornamented by the'handsome soda fountain that was in the Gilt Edge cafe. Studley will dispense sweetness next summer. Mrs. Ernest Herman, who brought her baby home for burial a few weeks ago, has returned to Dubuque for the winter. She will come back in the spring. . The farmers' institute next week will make a clear $100 for every farmer who ajtends it and listens to all that is said. It is going to be an exceptionally good meeting. C. W. Budd was up from Des Moines and had a practice shoot with John G. Smith Saturday, and Monday Mortenson came from Britt and he and Guy Taylor joined. "That Girl" was a good entertainment Saturday evening, and on account of open time remained Monday evening also. It was clever, catchy, laughable, and not cheap. The Bancroft racing association meets Monday to organize for the year. Geo. F. Holloway says Bancroft will celebrate the Fourth, and ia talking of a fair this fall. Prof. Niles of the state agricultural college veterinary department is expected at the farmers' institute next week. He has written to Dr. Bayers that he would come. It is now likely that excursion rates will be restored. Col. Spencer, Wm. K. Ferguson, S. Mayne of Bancroft, and others are planning a trip the last of the month. Miss Ella Wheeler was taken to the Independence asylum Monday by Sheriff Christensen. She lives in Buffalo township and has been home from the asylum only a few weeks. The stairway is being changed in the Shoetz drug store and water closets and other conveniences are being put in the second story. Some handsome office rooms will soon bo fitted up. The county board met -yesterday to open the bids on grading and doctoring, but had other matters in hand until this morning. A lot of bids are in for both and the competition will be interesting. The Bremen have some handsome prizes on display in Durdall's window for the big masquerade. They are planning for the social event of the winter. It comes a week from next Monday, Feb. 14. C. C. Samson announces his abstract office in this issue. Ho is a genial man to deal with himself and Mr. King, who is with him, is a veteran abstractor. All who deal with this firm will get good and responsible service. The fifteenth anniversary of the woman suffrage cause will be duly celebrated in Columbia theatre in Washington, D. C., Feb. 14-19. Mrs. Elizabeth Cady Stan ton and Miss Anthony will be present. Beduced rates will be given by the railroads. Bev. F. E.

Long of Sibley will assist in the singing. All will be made welcome. The new postoffice outfit was shipped from Indianapolis last Friday. It will doubtless be up in the new building this week. The exact date for a change of administration has not been set. The change will not occur until the new room is entirely ready. The farmers' institute will open next week Thursday morning at the hour set if there is only one man in the room. The first paper will be read at 10 o'clock, and no allowance for slow watches. A farmers' institute ought to be prompt if nothing else. Dr. McCoy is expecting a six-ton cannon any day now for the soldiers' lot in the cemetery. Senator Allison endorsed the request, and the department ordered it shipped. It was used during the war, but will hereafter stand in the middle of the soldiers' lotas an emblem of peace. Presiding Elder Yetter is home from his travels over the district. He says the results of revivals this winter are very much beyond expectations. Over 1,000 conversions have been made in his district. The biggest revivals have been in Bancroft, LuVerne, Woolstock and Buffalo Center. Piano solos of great merit by Mrs. Lee of the public school and by Miss Irene Bhoner, Mrs. Wm. Ehlers'sister, were features of the Congregational church concert Sunday eyening. Both are accomplished performers. Miss Bhoner is an exceptionally brilliant player for a young lady. The public library association elected officers Monday evening, Thos. F. Cooke, president; H. C. McCoy, vice president; E. J. Murtagh, treasurer; E. P. McElroy, secretary and librarian. It also began planning for a fair at which the 50 handsome pictures lately received will be disposed of. Peter Winkel got out ice for 223 teams Thursday, 211 teams Friday, and 62 teams Saturday. They were in from Wesley, Sexton, Hohart and Lotts Creek hauling for the creameries. Each patron hauls two loads of ice or pays $2, and Peter had the contract of cutting and loading for them. B. M. Bichmond wasdownfromSwea City Monday. He would not confirm nor deny the rumor that he will put a second bank in Burt. Some time ago he contemplated such a move and rented a location. Whether he will now go ahead remains to be seen. He looked wise but said nothing when pressed by the reporter. At the firemen's ball, to come Feb. 14, the following prizes we scheduled for distribution: Lady's first prize, handsome silver china comb, brush, and travel rack, value $8.60; second, silver hand mirror, value $1.60.- Gent's first prize, silver smoking set, value $6; second, gold vest chain, No fireman will be allowed to compete for prize. C. N. Bosewall of Kedwood Falls, Minn., a younger brother of Algona's painter of the same name, has rented the Cordingley building adjoining the Bowe restaurant, and will put in a bakery. He is an experienced man and will put in a first class outfit. He was recently burned out at Bed wood Falls, which causes him to seek a new location. Work has begun already. Judge Quarton appointed M. P. Haggard a commissioner to take the testimony of W. J. Burton in the matter of his troubles with Mr. Holston, the owner of the farm he has been renting. Our supervisor testified very differently from Mr. Holston. It is evident that the injunction suit which is set for the first thing at the coming term oi court will be bitterly contested. At the hearing before Commissioner Hag- gard, Chas. E. Cohenour represented Holston and 'Squire Raymond and J. W. Sullivan were for D. A. Haggard, who holds the mortgage given by Burton. Geo. E. Clarke says that the first gold brick that was taken out of their machinery hnd $1,500 in it. It is to be cut into ten pieces and distributed among the stockholders. He brought home some very handsome opals from tho south and is going to have them set in rings and pins from this gold when it comes. The gold is very pure, selling at $18 an ounce, and it will make handsome jewelry. Lieut. Ward stands first'in the Fourth regiment on rifle score, and th* Fourth leads tho other three regiments. There are only three or four in the state ahead of him on state record, and that by but one point. They have 188 out of a possible 225 and Mr. Ward has 187. Company F stands third in the regiment in rifle work, and tho four United States sharp shooters of Co. F stand at the head of tho regiment. They are Ward, Walsh, Lew Huckman and Ed. McMurray. The record is a good one for our boys and for our regiment. Company F will make a heroic effort to get the silver cups again next year. E. G. Bovvyer has a letter from his brother which gives an interesting glimpse of his duties in the naval work of the United States: "I am now attached to this [the Washington, D. C.] yard and doing duty in connection with the gun factory. I have charge of the manufacture of all tho largest guns, those of eight to 13 inches in calibre, including the carriages on which they are mounted, and the installation of all turret machinery, which includes hydraulic, pneumatic, and electrical machinery of various kinds. I find the work very interesting. We employ 1,000 men in the gun factory and are just now doing a great deal of night work in addition to the day work." An impression was conveyed last week in an item in THE UPPER DES MOINES that a dance at Grant Sample's in Irvington was adjourned to the town hall. The facts are that the dance was gotten up by W. A. Parsons, was attended by a large party of the finest young people in the county, and enjoyed the hospitality of the Sample home until a small hour in the morning. The Sample home is one of the best in the county and no one goes there who does not enjoy a pleasant time, and we are sorry that the item in question should have been construed to suggest that the visitors left after coming to the party. Other parties will be given at Mr. Sample's and all who attend are assured of a social time in genial and refined surroundings. GOOD five-room house for rent.

"Jersey Home" farm, one mile east of Milwaukee depot. C. B. CLARK & SON, 44t3 Algona, Iowa, Col. Cooke in Des Molnes to Give a Week to Instruction—Clnss of About 15O Students. Col. Cooko went to Ames yesterday to spend the week at the nnnunl school of military instruction. Ho will go again next week. Ho lectures to the second and third classes on small arms inspection. Last week the first, year class was at Ames, and this included Lieuts. Ward and Randall, who wore both present. The work each year Is in courses and our lieutenants decided to begin at the beginning and go through. This school has been in progress for three years, having been first hold in 1806, continuing through 1806 and 1897. At. these sessions the officers attended by regiments, all officers of one regiment attending atagiven time. But by this arrangement the result was very unsatisfactory. Upon motion of J. R. Lincoln, inspector general, a now four year course, now being instituted, was outlined on the same plan as the course used at Fort Leaven worth. This new course divides tho school into five departments, as follows: First, department of tactics; second, department of law; third, department of engineering; fourth, department of hygiene; fifth, department of strategy. There are about 160 students in tho school, 35 of whom were present at the last term. The last term continued until Jan. 28. The remaining terms of this session are as follows: Second, Feb. 1-4; third, Feb. 8-12; fourth, Feb. 16-20. Instructors presentarn: J. B. Lincoln, commandant; J. T. Davidson, assistant commandant and secretary, Capt. J. A. Olmstead, U. S. A., chiet of the department of law; Col. Thomas F. Cooke, inspector of small fire arms.

BEMEMBER our bargain list and see what cash will do at M. 7,. Grove & Son's. For Klondike Gold Seekers. Mr. M. S. Tinker is in town in the interest of tho American and Canadian Klondike company, of which our old friend Judge Carr is the president. The plan of the company is the best wo have seen, and the fact that the officers associated with the judge in its management are men of sterling character and worth, leads one to believe that success is very probable and that at least the money placed in the company's hands will be used to the best advantage possible in the search for gold. The conditions of the company are such that the stockholders of each locality pick their own man to represent them in tho gold fields, and the safeguards thrown around both officers and miners, makes dishonesty an impossibility. In our opinion it would pay anyone interested in the subject to see Mr. Tinker and get a clear idea of the plans of the expedition, Parties have already joined it from some of our neighboring towns and we note that the promoters in all of them rank among the successful business men of this district. Mr. Tinker will be in town for several days and may be seen at the Tennant house. FOR time loans on real estate apply at Kossuth County State Bank. BUY coal and feed at Hobart, of W.

Cedar Rapids, la., Mar. 8, 1897.— For a family remedy lor coughs and colds I have never found the equal to Orloff's Bussian Grippe Cure.
