Prof. Gilchrist's reception Thursday evening came near being drowned out by the rain, which began pouring down before the hour announced, and which kept on pouring down all evening. To the surprise and delight of i the Professor and his family a large humber of guests waded the.current and presented themselves, in \vet garments it is true, at Normal Hall, and a very pleas- a?it evening was enjoyed. The refreshments were fine and the decorations were exceptionally beautiful. The largest district meeting of Good Templars ever held in the state was held at Clear Lake last week, the number present being over 200, and the enthusiasm was good. Among the speakers were G-. W.

Noble men are our official board, and tireless have been the ladies in their efforts toward this happy end." S. S. Sessions returned Friday from a . isit to the fair grounds at Des Moines. He reports several new stock buildings going up and other improvements. Over 700 head of swine have already been entered for exhibition. -A land- icsipe engineer has been engaged to lay out and fix up the grounds. The water works have been replaced by a new system and they expect to put in a system of electric lights. The State Fail- grounds are going to be in good shape for the coming fair. The Corwith Crescent speaks these good words for its town baud, which is to play sit Algona the 4th. "Algona has come to her senses and procured the services of the Corwith Viand for the Fourth, at a nice figure. Although Corwith is a small town, we doubt if any town of two thousand can produce a liner brass band. They hayereceived a number of offers for the 4th. " We will refrain from further remarks, leaving others to sing their praises sifter they have heard them." The marriage of Miss Lora Rice, daughter of D. Rice, to Mr. Geo. W. Psingburn, was solemnized at the home of the bride's parents last Wednesday afternoon, at five o'clock. There were present a number of relatives siml friends. Hey.

The Mason City Express-Republican says: "The state militia companies of Algona, Hampton and Osuge will be here the Isist of the month to spend a few days in drilling and target practice. The above-named companies together with our home company, belong to the Sixth Iowa Regiment whose purpose it is to compete for the prize this fall iu the inter-state rille match to be held at Madison, Wisconsin. Our boys are in good trim and if they indulge in the proper amount of practice wiUstand an excellent show of carrying off the prize." Prof. Geo. E. Reed and family left Saturday evening for Spencer for a visit with Mrs. Reed's people. They will stay there till Thursday of this week when they will be joined by Clif Stockwell, of Hurt, and Arthur Tellier, of this place, and the whole party will then go to Nampa, Idaho.

Algona at Ef attston—The Masonic Celebration — Pro* gram for the Fourth. NOfcM/Afc tMEUAif Y. The fourth anniversary of the Normal Literary and Philomathian Societies was held in the Congregational church Wednesday evening. The president of the first society is Guy Tttttle and the president of the other is Gus Ptieki both of which presided. Rev. Smith pronoiuiced 1 the invocation, after which a sOng was rendered by Misses McDonald and Reed and Messrs. Tellier and Fuller. The first declamation was by C. W. Stockwell, of Burt, recounting the trials of the Pilgrims,' and he was followed by Jennie Thompson, of Union, who read an essay on "Courage.'.' A finely rendered recitation by Ada Adams, of Wesley, related how the federal and confederate bands got to challenging one another as the armies lay along the Rappahannock. One band would play a piece and it would then be answered by a piece from the opposing band. Finally "Home, Sweet Home" was played and the strain was taken up by both bands at once. A vocal solo by Grace Gilchrist was well received. Frank Tellier then delivered an oration ou "The Pleasures of Knowledge," sifter Avhich Hattie Schryver, read an esssiy which was a dream, and in which she saw the Normal School of the future, with large and handsome buildings and csimpus and Prof. Gilchrist once more at the head of it. The reading of the Normal Bim-Saw, alive school psiper, csime next and was read by Mamie McDonald, of Burt,and Kate Farrell, of Livermore. Norma Gilchrist appeared to good advantage in a recitation, "Hymn to Intellectual Beauty." The next was a fine instrumentsil solo by Georgia Drennen, of Renwick, The five members of the graduating class who were also members of the literary society were then presented with badges in a nesit speech by Guy Tuttle, the re spouse being by Miss Harroun, of Msi- son City. A song by Josie McCoy closed the entertainment. The exercises as a whole were good but the spesikers, with but few exceptions, spoke in so low a voice that the audience could not hear well. Lo, the poor horse! How cruel is his lot when befalls into the hands of the stylish driver. How he throws his head from side to side, in vain endeavor to escape the pressure of the bit. How lie turns his eyes up to heaven for the mercy he finds not here. Look sit him, and pity him, unless your heart is made of stone. See what torture he endures for the ••'entertainment of his vain or careless driver. A horse ought to be permitted to see the ground where he is going to put his feet. But will he not drop his head too low if the over-check is removed? Certainly not. His head is his own, and lie knows how to carry it. Horses have rights as well sis other people. Dominion over animals does not include the right to torture them. "Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy." We shsill sill need a little mercy, so let us not debar ourselves by a foolish practice which helps not us, but makes the poor horse sad indeed. When that noble animal shall give in his testimony, let us not be found wanting in humanity to him. When the horse and his driver shall stand before the Judge of all, how would it look to have the horse appesir the more human of the two. We have beheld his distress as he is driven up and down our streets, and his piteous eyes have appealed for relief, until there is no strength left in us to resist his mute reproach. Loosen the rein, and let him do his work with joy and not with pain. If you think a tight check-rein is not painful, just try a similar contrivance ou yourself, and if you are disposed to do as you like to be done by, you will >never agaiu apply that instrument Of torture to a horse. The leather blinds, and the iron shoe, will silso have to go—but are less intolerable than the cruel over-check. From the horse's friend, Lizzie: B. READ. _ y ^ m r ^. ----- ... , , .

'That, gentleman is an accomplished educator, who in his line is one of the most eminent in the country. When he came here^:- four'years ago, and took the leadership of the movement to establish a Northern Iowa jSTorrnsil School, his action attracted wide attention. The school has had from the start the prestige which his connection with it and his energetic sind silwsiys successful management insured. Many of the school's best students followed the Professor here,-that number including several of the present graduating class. It would be idle to attempt concealment of the loss the school sustains in the severance of his relations as .principal. Theboard,how- ever, are in communication with a number of candidates for the succession and are carefully considering the claims of educators. It may be taken for granted that the fall term will open'at the usual time under able management, ami that the school will grow and prosper. The success of the institution in the past should inspire the confidence smd zeal of our citizens in its behalf. FOURTH OF JUI.Y PROGRAM. Arrangements for the celebration of the fourth are now about completed, arid the program Is one worthy of the occasion. Two bands have been secured—the Algona, and Corwith bands. The fireworks will be something new and well worth seeing. The oration by A. L. Hudson will be one worth listening to and the whole day promises to be a good one.
