Bert was secondill that race gbfogoVer the flcratch abotlt six inches behind the other many who it now transpires is not a ftill fledged League member, which wilfthrdW him out if a kick is made and the i-lgona League men are kicking. Bert really did some remarkable riditig When the fact is taken into consideration that he had not been in training in anticipation 6'f any races; His whetel furthermore weighs SGpounde and is geared to 54 inches. The average racing wheel weighs but little over thirty and is geared to over 00 inches. Following is Bert's record: • One mile Safety, Novice 1st, time 8:10i, prize saddle; two mile Safety first, time 6:15 prize, gold medal', one mile Safety, state championship, 2nd pcize silver medal. This is the race that the contest is over, and it is possible that Bert will still be awarded the state championship. Bert .fairly won this race anyway. The other man rode a 38 pound cushion tired racer geared to 64 inches while Bert's wheel weighs 50 pounds and is geared to 54 inches. Bert also, entered the two «Qile safety handicap race against CU,i- cago, Minneapolis and Omaha men riding racers and came in. third. Gerry Garfleld also distinguished himself winning the boy's one half .mile safety race in 1:41, carrying off the prize of a nickel plated lamp, ^enjsrwas handicapped in this race as he rode an extra heavy wheel and one that he was not 11 sed to riding but he won the race very easily, trailing the other boys around the track until rea«hingthe home stretch when he pushed in ahead and won the race with plenty of time to spare. The Algona boys have reason to be congratulated; they did well. Bert Edmonds stopped for a visit in Des Moines on his way home from the bicycle meet at Newton. 'He will be home in about a week. _^ ^ RE PUBLIC AN * Mts. Wh«eler succeeded in getting respottses from 898? or about four fifths. She is able to show that most of the graduates have toadelife a success, while their cldaiftlcation. as to politics indicates that the educated and progressive young men and Women of the west are sound republicans, as a rule. She reports of those responding to her catechism, 158 republicans to 35 democrats. On the prohibition question, there are 170 for to 69 against, while by a smaller majority they are for womans suffrage. When it comes to compulsory education the vote, is all but unanicftous. Mrs. Wheeler's paper received many compliments, The dedication of Morrill Hall occurred Tuesday, and was an event of great interest. Among the speakers were Congressman IIull v Editor Brigham of the Cedar Kapids Republican, and President Beardshear. The Algona contingent report themselves highly pleased with the outlook for the instituton uude» President Beardshear and the able faculty. The most perfect Fiarmony prevails, and the condition of affairs in general is in .strong contrast with what it was a year ago. '.•V GRAND CELEBRATION PICNIC.
