Taylor, her Atty. 25-28 Program for Social Union Friday evening: Song—Miss Fahnstock. Socialism—Mr. Hinchon. Recitation—Myrta Putsch. Paper-Mrs. L. C. Smith. The Ait of Public Speaking—B. F. Reed. Duett—Misses Moffatt and Bist. The mind reading performances of Paul Alexander Johnstone at the Congregational church last Friday evening were very successful and convinced the audience that Mr. Jobnstone was no fake so far as being able to accomplish the feats undertaken Friday evening was concerned. It might have been "mind reading," and it might have been "muscle reading," everyone is at liberty to fit his own explanation to the case but it was one of the most remarkable performances ever witnessed in Algona. A committee of ten or twelve parties, all unknown to Mr. Johnstone, were selected from the audience to assist in the experiments. Mr. Johnstone was taken from the room in charge of one of the committee and securely blindfolded while all arrangements for the different tests were being made. The first test proposed by Mr. Johnstone was to fird a lead pencil, secreted at some unknown place among the audience. The pencil was given to Dr. McCoy who secreted it in his pocket book and placed the pocket book in his inside coat pocket. Mr. Johnstone came into the room blindfolded leading a member of the committee who had been instructed to concentrate his mind upon the location of the lead pencil. He proceeded almost directly to the doctor and after a search of a few moments succeeded in finding the pencil. Several other feats were successfully performed, the most difficient being the reproduction of a drama enacted by the committee, as follows: Ike Finnell, of the Courier office, took a dagger and going down into the audience went through the motions of killing Postmaster Starr. He then hid the dagger and the committee selected a jury, two attorneys and a judge from among the audience who were seated upon the platform and after a memorandum had been taken of the order in which the seating had been made they were dismissed to the audience. Mr. Johnstone was brought into the room blindfolded and succeeded in finding the dagger, reproducing the murder, selecting the jury, the two attorneys and the judge from among the audience, seating them as they had been previousely seated, and afterwards finding the murderer. The audience were satisfied with the test and- loudly applauded. There is a possibility that Mr.'Johnstone will play a return date at Algona. In case he sees fit to do so he will have a good audience.
