A large six-foot horn of plenty had been placed at the foot of the altar as the central decoration, and members of the congregation marched past during the offertory, depositing their gifts beneath. Four-fifths of the total was received in cash. This was an impressive feature of the evening, which included an address by the Rev. Dr. Benzon, pastor of the First Lutheran church at Algona, and two numbers by the choir under the direction of A. B. Tweeten with Mrs. Grcgor Deim at the organ. The harvest festival idea was a new venture for the local church but proved a very popular one. Fruits, grains and vegetables decorated the sanctuary, which' was crowded to capacity. A prize offered for the best five ears of corn was awarded to Oscar Berggren. There were many other exhibits of garden and field crops. The Rev. A. M. Youngquist is pastor.
