The company that will take the Jones & Stacy mill will organize next week. There are so many rumors of a new bank at Burt that it is pretty nearly a eure thing. Company F will have a big ball Monday, Feb. 21. Company F has a reputation of doing things right. The firemen's big masquerade comes next Monday evening.

Miss Eva Lantry is back again in the telegraph office temporarily. She will remain until she can get a new operator and then will return to her city office. The teachers had a big meeting at Bancroft Saturday. On account of no train south they wei'e not able to stay for Eli Perkins. Over 120 were present. Representative Farley's woman suffrage committee has reported favorably to submitting a constitutional amendment. The bill is likely to pass the house. J, J. Cordingley has bought the old depot school house and has moved it down on Park avenue, where he will rebuild it and make himself a comfortable home. Nineteen Knights of Pythias went to Whittemore Saturday evening and were royally entertained by the brethren over there. They never had a better time anywhere.

Fred. Paine, who used to live in Algona, and who was married rather hurriedly to a Burt lady, has sued for divorce up in Minnesota on the charge of desertion. .E. H. Clarke has been secured by the wife to defend. Will Harvey had a finger caught between a building he was moving last week and a tree, and it was cut cleanly off. He was looking to see if the building would miss the tree and did not think of his hand till too late. The Chicago papers have the Rahm- Necker shooting pictured as a planned duel, and the name of Sexton is heralded to an astonished world. Telegrams for long accounts of the " duel" came to Algona from all the big papers. Miss Tena Wallace was tripped by a defective sidewalk on Thorington street and had a serious fall. She was unable to get home, but rested comfortably at Guy L. Taylor's. , She is now out again, suffering only a sprain. The Woman's Library Aid society meets Friday at 3 o'clock.

Wadsworth is to be president of the new bank ' at Burt and C. D. Smith cashier. It is to be a savings bank and the articles of incorporation are to come put soon. Messrs. Wadsworth and Smith are a strong team as officers. The Algona Deposit & Loan held its annual meeting yesterday. The old officers were re-elected excepting that E. J. Murtagh becomes director in C. C. St. Glair's place. It was a well attended meeting, and the financial showing was very flattering. The north side sewer is done. Prof. Lilly's survey was so accurate that when the new line came to the old one it fitted to a sixteenth of an inch. The water was turned in and showed that the grade was true and correct. It is a creditable piece of work. Prof. Lilly will begin a survey of the south side sewer as soon as the snow is off a little. Already the residents of the southwest side of town have been arranging to take taps. A canvass of the south side will be mad« as soon as the route decided on is known. Miss Flossie Smith is now with her father in the treasurer's office, and is making a capital deputy. The Monitor says: The Burt young people honored Miss Flossie by joining in a goodbye party Saturday evening at the hall. The family will be missed in Burt. The Western Stars gave their first concert at Emmetsburg last week to a good house, and won any amount of praise. A. return engagement was asked for and will doubtless be given.

Van Erdewyk, Prof. Bowers of Whittemore, Prof. Byers of Bancroft, and Jane Longbottom are a committee to report at that time a plan for a graded course of work for these meetings It is expected to make the series supplement each other. The new postofflce outfit arrivec Monday and Mr. Purvis and George have it in place. It is expected that the change in postmasters will oooui the first of the coming week. The new outfit is praised by everybody No town in Iowa has a better one and Mr. Purvis has fitted his room in the beet of style to receive it. Sheriff Christensen caught his firsi man last week. He had a rather un certain description sent from Iowa Falls, and thought he saw the fellow here on the street in Algona. The man confessed his identity as soon as arrested, and the sheriff came up from below and got him. If our sheriff teeps up this record he will be a terror to evil doers. Mrs. Adelaide Ballafd, president of ;he Iowa Woman Suffrage association, spoke to a good sized audience last evening. She is a pleasing talker and nade a good argument for education n political equality, suffrage being Incidental. A petition is being liberally itgned In town for suffrage. Mrs. Butler, president of the county society, is being actively assisted by others. Peter J. Walker's suggestion that women and men both be allowed to vote only after showing a receipt that ihey have personally worked their road ;ax is worthy of consideration. His 'urther suggestion about Mrs. Wins- ow's soothing syrup, however, shows ,hat it has been some years since his children were babies. We have official nformation that Mrs. Winslow'ssooth- ng syrup Is out of date, no good, discarded, and not to be thought of. F. M Taylor says the Masons of this city are arranging for a big meeting on the 17th day of February.

Two medals will be awarded, a gold and u silver pattern, which will soon be on exhibition at Mr. Bowye,r's. The judges will be from out of town and absolute impartiality will be observed. The contest is open for all, and already numbers of other societies have agreed to take part. While open to all, not more than 12 can be ancepted. The age limit Is from 12 to 10 years inclusive. Any desiring to enter the contest can do so by seeing A. W. Winden or Rev. F. E. Day. The enterprise is a commendable one and ought to be well supported. ANY HOG WILL STOP when he comes to the CONSOLIDATED FIELD FENCE. It is the strongest fence made, having a breaking strain of four tons. All strand wires are No. 9 and 11, thus eliminating all small wires and making a fence that will last a lifetime. J. A. Hamilton & Co. have bought a carload of this fence, thus securing it at a greatly reduced price and saving nearly one-half the freight. This is the first carload of woven wire fencing ever brought to Kossuth county, and Hamilton will make it an object for you to buy your fencing at the Hardwood Lumber yard.— 4712 Wedding Rings.

GALBRAITH. IF HALF THE PEOPLE Took Orloff's Russian Grippe, Cough, and Cold Cure as soon as they feel the first symptoms of an attack, there'd be fewer deatns from colds working into consumption, catarrh, pneumonia, pleurisy, and similar diseases. It is the one proprietary remedy used by physicians in their families. FROM A PHYSICIAN. Ottawa, Kan., Mar. 26, 1897.—It is not often that a physician will recommend a proprietary medicine, but Orloff's Russian Grippe, Cough, and Cold Cure is so much superior to any other that I will say that I have used it for two years with astonishingly favorable results and not one failure. Isaiah Pile, M. P. 100 DOSES FOR 50 CENTS. SOLD BY W. J. STUDLEY, The always reliable druggist. BULLETS OUT IN PRAIRIE, CULMINATION OF AN OLD FEUD. Albert Rabin, nn Knst-sldc Terror, Shoots Herman Necker—Developments Awaiting. Albert Rahm of Prairie township has een a candidate for the penitentiary or several years. It seems likely now hat he is going to secure a unanimous lection, if Providence does not inter- ere by making a bullet wound on hia ibs more serious than it at present eemstobe. Rahm has been Prairie's rizo pugilist, tough, and all-round ter- or to decent people for a long time. Sunday night he and two others went 0 the Newman home, where Herman Veoker had been invited. When they atne to the door the Newmans told hem they were not expected and were lot wanted. Rahm pushed in, took off iis coat and said he would stay anyway. The two others, knowing what was in the wind, told Necker that ilahm had come " to do him up" and ie had better get out. Necker know what that meant and started. He had un about 40 yards through a field when ho saw Rahm set out for him and rom that on saw him steadily gaining. When Rahm was about three yards be- lind Necker drew a revolver, and turn- ng, fired. The bullet struck Rahm on 1 rib and glanced off. It did not stop ilm at all and catching Nocker betook he revolver away and shot him hrough the abdomen. Necker fell, jut got up and ran a mile still, Rahm "ring again at him as ho ran. The coroner was called, with County Attorney Raymond Monday morning, ind found Necker in a very dangerous .ondltion. The bullet went through Jim, and it is unlikely ho can Hyo, Hahm on the other hand is not much lurt and will doubtless be well enough o stand trial when the time comes, decker is a small man, in no sense's equal. Rahm has never been whipped, so far as reported, and has jeen the terror of the east side of the jounty. EXCURSION RATES TO THE MAEDI GRAS AND WINTER RESORTS OP THE UNITED STATES.
