As perfect a day as could be desired for any celebration dawned on Algona Friday morning. The air was cool, a gentle breeze was stirring and nature was at her best. The people were roused from their morning slumbers by the early boom of the morning salute and the rattle of the festive firecracker. Soon the town was dressed in its holiday attire and awaited the coming of the crowds. It had not long to wait for soon from every quarter of the country came pouring in the teams and the town was soon filled with a jolly assemblage of pleasure seekers and patriotic people. An excursion was run on the Northwestern, from Elmore to Algona, coming down in the morning and coing back after the fireworks in the evening. A large people came down on that croft and Burt. The exercises of the day began about ten o'clock, when the procession formed dtittea of citizenship* We should first be active clttohs. There is no for drones, He referred to man's disposition to shirk jury duty, Each citizen should take an active part in the work of the government of the land. Take part in the caucuses, primaries, etd. It is as much your duty as it is to pay your taxes. If politics are corrupt go in and help purify them. The caucus cannot get along without you and each man should be at his post of duty. The nation expects every man to do his duty in times of peace as well as in times of war. Second, be an honest citizen. Be .of honest thought and do not be ruled by prejudice. The speaker thought there was too much of being ruled by the party lash and said if your honesty required you to be a mugwump. But do very ffthf crowd turned out to witness the day>s sport.

Suleeba, a son of a native missionary of Turkey in Asia, will deliver a lecture on Palestine, byria mid Egypt. The lecture An Iowa editor by constant study, and practice has discovered that "pack my box with five dozen jugs of liquans" is the shortest sentence in our language containing alfcthe letters of the alphabet.— Northfield News. This is not all it contains by a jug full. It not only contains the aim-test sentence, but the shortest route-to the poor house, the penitentiary and the insane asylum. It may be a short- sentence, but it leads to many a lomg one. If you doubt it look at some ofithe sentences on the-reeords at the courthouse, it contains all the letters of the- alphabet and enough horrors, blue t&vilsand broken down< imputations to start another new world as bad as this; is.

This float was followed by the Corwith band and then came a second float with a Goddess of Liberty and girls representing the northern and western states. Miss Lizzie Wallace in the first float and Miss Lulu Richardson in the second represented the Goddess. Both floats were handsomely decorated and made a fine show. After the floats came Uncle Sam driving Mrs. Kuhn's mule and dressed in the usual striped suit, high hat, etc., and having his carnage decorated to correspond. This character was well earned out by Frank Willson. Then followed a long line of teams. The procession moved three blocks east, on State street, then turned and went two blocks south, three west on McGregor, and north on Thorington street. The pwacession was so lo>ng that the last teams, were just leaving the corner by Dr.Sheetz' when thehead of the procession came up from tbe south. Arriving on the ground, in the grove in the north edge of town, the meeting was called to order by the president, Geo. E. Clarke, and the band opened with a piece of music. The invocation was offered by Rev. Pratt, and a song was rendered by the Algona chorus. The chorus was made up as follows: Sopi-ano—Mrs. Rev. Pratt, Mrs. F. S. Vesper, Mrs. Brunei-, Miss Cora Setchell and Miss Emma Cordingly. Alto- Mrs. E. G. Bowyer, Miss Hunt and Mrs. Rev- Smith. Tenor—Arthur Tellier, Alf and Sid Rist and J. W. Bartlett. Bas*-D. T. Smith, E, II. Slatfe, C. B. Paul v Fred Fuller and L. Tuttle. They gave^some very fine music and were loudly applauded. Samuel Mayne, of BaneKolt, in a strong and elear voice, read the Declaration of Independence afteiv which came a song—The Red, White-and-Blue. The orator of the mugwump, be a not be a demagogue. Third, be a progressive citizen. In this connection the speaker brought in the public schools and said that in them the youth should be given a knowledge of civil government. In every other line we give special training. If we wish our sons to be bankers, farmers, blacksmiths, or anything else, we give them special training in that line, but we are allowing our young men to grow up ignorant of the fundamentals of civil, government. Teach political economy. And in order to have the scholars taught these things day,.Hon. A. L. Hudson, oSSiouxCity, was. then introduced, ami delivered one of Ms characteristically good speeches* lie-began by a reference to-Ms seven years, absence from Algona, and the pleasure id gave him to return and join hands, again with the people in this celebration. He paid, a, glowing tribute to the character of the people-of Kossuth as he had seen it from, abroad. "Every community owes its, character to its founders," He than, pictured the noble character of the-pioneers, of the northwest and the early settlers of Kossuth... As. an indication of their early characteristics he mentioned- the schools ofc Kossuth and suade a special mention of the Normal School and the gallant fight made for it, at Des Moines against, the combined force-of the whole state.. Everywhere and in every way Kassuth exhibited the''get there" spirit. Her farmers and, stock raisers and; their breeding animals were among the first in the,state. The credit o& the county wag. invj&late. No notable failures ha<J ever occured in Kessuth and in the matter of public improvements she stands among the first. She also excelled in the spirit of the beautiful a»d shows a beautiful «aty. But in mattws of great emergence? the people of Kossuth are not wanting. Here he gaxe a brief sketch of the- war record of the county aud made a touching reference to the sanitary tag, which decojated the platform. The speaker's eulogy of Kossuth, her pioneers, her people, her institutions aud her productions was of sueh length and iu such tewas as with early settlers less distinguished d with the results of their great and noble trials less notable would have seemed like fulsome flatteiy, or the urniug of a patriotic occasion to the jurpose of free advertising. Tiie clog- lug portion of tbe address was on the the teachers must first know them. He thought the teacher should have higher pay as an inducement to making teaching a life work. As it now is many of them simply make it a stepping stone to something else. The center of population and political power is slowly creeping westward and our youth should be trained to meet the requirements of the times. Fourth, be a law abiding citizen. He defined law as a great dam holding back the passions and unruly elements of self and society. The lack of enforcement of the laws against gambling, liquor selling and prostitution are but outworkings of this spirit of defiance to law. He painted the Conemaugh dam and flood and drew some pointed illustrations. The song, America, closed the exercises aud the audience was dismissed to partake of their picnic dinners,, some spreading their viands in the- grove, some going to tlue lunch stands, and others going to their homes. The fireworks in the evening were witnessed by a big crowd of people. They were sent off on the vacant .block east of W. K. Ferguson's residence, and were as good as ever seen in the county, among the lot bsing several new varieties, each of which was greeted with exclamations, of admiration from the on-lookers. Several of the best pieces exploded before they got up in the air: The bowery dance at the aink in the afternoon and evening received its share of attention and was- thronged with a miscellaneous crowd of-pleasure- seekers. Take the entine day's program, and it was a success and was carried out to tilie general satisfaction of all.. Bertha B, owned by A, Engle, Eagle Grove,and was distanced the first heat, Best time 2:84i There was considerable diversity of opinion as to whether John Winkel's running stallion, Kossuth, could better the time made at Spencer by Yoric and Iranchise, which was 1:62 for a mile and 2:28 for a mile and a quarter, respectively. The grand stand rang with applause when he beat both records in the second trial, making a mile record of 1:61 and a mile and a quarter record of 2:17*. This horse is only three years old and is a half brother of the famous running horse, Riley. Mr. Winkel has entered him for the Twin City Derby, which occurs this month at Minneapo- , lis. Great things are expected of him. < ; There was a special trotting race got-/ ten up between Tennant's King DavidV and C. A. Brewster's horse, Darky, and { King David redeemed himself by win- V ning both heats without an effort. *' The races as a whole were the best for some years, and the Driving Park Association report them a financial success, which is something decidedly novel. Dr. Clack, of Clear Lake, assisted m the judges stand, and proved very efficient. Race programs were gotten put aud pools were sold and everything done to make the races interesting Peter Winkel and Chandler had stands on the grounds and were ' o the NOTES.

Friday's raced- at the fair- grounds, were witnessed, by the largest crowd ever seen there- on such an. occasion. 'JHie day was one- of the nicest and the teack was in good condition. The first race on the program was a 2:40 trotting race. Chinch Bug, owned by G. C. Ihomas, Vintonjowa, took first money easily; That's What, owned by C. Pike, Chicago, second, and Flora Lee, owned eel by W. F.. Coonan, Eznmetsburg, th-kd. The best time mada-was 2:35. The second mce was a three minute trot, with ten. horses entered, which made the tracfe very much arowded and probably was what caused the collision in the second heat between Belva Boekwood, ovmiedby Jas. Sifford, Em- ;metsbui-g, and; Eugene Eklridge, owned by E. Pinney, Vinton, Iowa. It I was before reaching the quarter post 'thatthe collision occuriatl, knocking :both drivers iJrom their salkies but sot seriously injuring , them. One horse continued on a run around the track ' t aud made thi?ee circuits before it was jat last stopped. The otfcer one bo&ed >the track itamediately and with the ciacuit at, the south entli o^the graad stand. The sulky straek several rigs in its mad flight and* the horse dia some talJ kicking. Tli® korse finally ran around near the stalls and got tangled up in a team belonging to Geo. Hanna, of LaVerne, where ft was captured. Several ladies fainted! and the whole grounds were a. scene e£ wild confusion for a Jfew minutes. Aside from damage dene to buggies mere was nothing injured,although there were several narrow escapes, as people could hardly get out of the way owing to the immense crowd. After- the excitement had somewhat abated the «ice was again called and first money was taken by Frank M., a Chicago Jwrae, with Hazel Maid, a Ft. Dodge hoi-se, second, and arinnell, another Chicago horse, third. Best time 2:43. There was a running race on the program but only one hcose being entered it failed tft materialise. Saturday was a very unpleasant day for racing, owing to tlie idiong wind ana dusty ti^cte. i,™,i *« r fla S is still i n tue hands of the committee. The way the procession formed,each one crowding in wherever he could, gaye no chance of determining the delegations from the different townships. They were all mixed up m a miscellaneous string. Hon.
