CLOSE OF THE INSTITUTE. The County Normal Ends Tills Week Friday, After Three Weeks of Exceptional Work. MOINES: ALGOfrA, IOWA, WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 30, 1893, Some Remarks Ahent the Special Features and the Manner in Which They Were Presented. It is with regret that Algona will say goodbye to the teachers Friday. They have had more to do with making the past three weeks cheerful than all the gold shipments from Europe. And then they seem to have had a good time themselves. They have been here in bigger numbers than ever before, more than 220 of them, and the more there are the better it is, which of itself speaks their merits. They have had a good institute, too, if State Supt. Knoepfler's estimate is correct. He saiu that the first thing that impressed him was thut their attendance was voluntary, and that they seemed to be anxious to come. The second item peculiar to this institute was having the Instructors go from room to room instead of i ho teachers, thereby saving a lot of valuable time, and he intends next year to recommend this to the state. A third feature peculiar to this meeting has been the attractive list of evening lectures given free of cost. Hunt. Heed has planned good institutes before and is something of au expert in this line, but this, we believe, stands put among them all as the best Kossuth has yet had. entertainments far ahead of many older and larger counties. I assure you all that amid the constant changes of itinerant ministerial life, you have had a warm place in our hearts and it has been because of heavy labors and long distances of travel that more frequent visits have not been made. With warmest friendship, I remain, most fraternally, \y. F. BARCLAY. DONE WITH HOME CAPITAL The Algona Deposit and Loan Association Organized, and Almost Beady for Business.

Among the instructors Prof. Shoun has been very popular. He is one of the recognized able educators of the state, and he has taken up the general subject of how to teach. Prof. Dixson in mathematics and the sciences, has no superior and is very popular. Miss Anna K McGovern, who has for ten years been in the state normal school on primary methods, has done expert work in that branch here. Mrs Barber's work in elocution and physical culture is unexcelled anywhere, and no feature of any institute ever held here has been more enjoyed. Prof. Davidson has done excellent work in history and physiology. As a whole the corps of instructors has included only the best in their respective lines. Each morning Supt. Reed has talked on school law, and given the gist of the decisions on matters pertaining to teaching. I-Ic has, besides, invited others to occupy the 15 minutes, and Ruvs Davidson and Bagncll, Prof. Chattce! Mrs. Ingham, and Rev. Brush of Sioux City have spoken. The list of evening lectures has included Supt. Knoeplier Rov. Barclay, Prof. Elmer with his atoreopticon, and Do Witt Miller, who comes tomorrow. In addition Prof Chafl'eo's lecture wan dated to (it the course. Mr. Miller has been secured at great expense, and his lecture will bo the best ever given in an institute course in this part of the state. In the way of music, recitations, etc., the best talent of Algona has cheerfully assisted. The institute has lasted three weeks. It has afforded the teachers a lino opportunity to take in a supply of new ideas and enthusiasm that will last all the year. A successful institute insures successful schools. It crouton pride In the profession. It stirs up emulation and a desire to excell. It makes teaching something to be proud of. Where the institutes are small and lack enthusiasm, the teachers got sick of their work. A superintendent who can got up a successful institute and get all the teachers to want to attend and to show animation in their study, who can bring them into contact with the bright minds of tho state for three weeks, and send thorn out planning to come again v Bort Hallock is with the Eagle Grove Times now and his family will move there.

Leo Puegnet came down from Arm- Hard times have no effect on Algona enterprise. While other cities are feeling the effects of depression we are booming with new buildings and reaching out into new fields. The past week final steps have been taken to inaugurate a 20 million dollar building and loan association, to be known as the "Algona Deposit and Loan association," and by this time the articles of association are filed. This is on the plan of like institutions in Des Moines and elsewhere in Iowa, and ought to be a big success here in Algona, where everything succeeds. The capital stock is to be paid in monthly installments, as is customary with associations of like kind. The offices will be over the Algona State bank. The directors are C. C. Chubb, A. D. Clarke, Thos. F. Cooke, C. C. St.' Clair, F. M. Taylor, E. E. Sayers, Dexter Turner, and H, J. Edens. Of these Thos. F. Cooke is president; E E Sayers, vice president: F. M Tavlor' secretary, and C. C. St. Clair, treasurer. 1 hos. F Cooke went to Des Moines Monday to file the articles of incorporation, and business will begin Oct. 1. The purpose of this company like that of all the building and loan associations of the state, is to afford small depositors with safe investments and secure to them cheap loans. It is organized on tho same plan as the most conservative of our Iowa companies, and as these hnve proved successful elsewhere this will Undoubtedly be equally fortunate. The field work will be done by Messrs. Turner and Edens. Mr Turner has been engaged for the Dubuque and other associations for seven years and has been a very successful solicitor. Mr. Edens has been for a year at work for the Carroll company. Both will put in their whole time securing stock for tho new company. In consequence of this move Mr. Taylor will soon change his office and be found in the front rooms over the bank He will give his time to the new business, which will undoubtedly soon require his entire attention. The men who have taken hold of this enterprise are well known here and in this part of the state, and their ability to handle-a business of such magnitude is recognized. They have all the ele- A Word to the Grocery Trade. There is no denying the fact that money is scarce, There are " dollars of our daddies" enough, no doubt, in the country, but somehow they don't seem to circulate. This makes times " close," as they say; so in order to meet these close times we get close to the public by Making Extra Close Prices. This does not mean that the quality of our groceries is poorer —not any—the high grade is maintained, no matter what hap- in the financial world. To be convinced you need only to call and see for yourself that the quality is there the same as ever the price is made to correspond with existing circumstances! Stock the Largest. Quality the Finest. Prices the Lowest. What more does anyone want? These qualities ought to fill the bill with any reasonable pers6n. fl^Large stock of crockery, lamps and lamp goods—our specialties.

Barclay again to Algona after an absence of 1(1 years. And while ho found groat changes in the town and in tho people, those who know him before found little change in him. His appearance was natural in spite of serious lameness caused by rhoumalisip, and his address was just as of old, full of bright thoughts and amusing illustrations and stories of his experiences in those Algona college days, when tho stage used to como from ICnmietsburg and Fort Dodgo and tho only train that loft Algona started at 4 o'clock in tho morning with Hogan or Caldwoll in charge. Tho evening was a treat lo all. But to thoso whoso 1 memories wore carried vividly buck it was like tho mooting of long-lost friends. Rov. Barclay has boon preaching nil thoso years; hi Waterloo, Clinton, Marion, and now is at Toledo. Mrs. Barclay is enjoying excellent health. Both retain a place in tho history and allVc- tlonsof Alfi-ona, which will o\vr insiuv thorn a generous welcome to I his .seene of their early labors. Tho following- note explains itself: To tho Kditor: As my visit, here must be literally a Hying' trip and no timojte afforded to call uu old friondn, .1 dosiro to acknowledge many courtesies as well as to congratulalo'the citizens on the lino growth and evident thrift of this beautiful town. It has no equal in this part of the .state. After spending two or three years as a resident, and now after an 'absence of 10 years, I iind my predictions fulfilled I often said then thut for intelligence, stability and enterprise the place had no equal in the state. Other places had one or two of these three elements of prosperity, but not all. In all these years I have been bragging on Algona, in season and out of season, and on mv return I find that my abounding enthusiasm and praise have been within the bounds of truth.

Johnson's hay barn on the north side of town was on fire and was soon consumed along with about 200 tons of hay, a new Flour City hay press, tread power, and one horse. The men were just hitching up to begin work when the fire was discovered behind a large pile of baled hay that was piled up inside the barn. No one seems to know how the fire originated. There was a light insurance on it. H. C. Price's house stands close to where the barn stood and at one time it was thought it, too, would be on fire, but by the prompt action of those present it was prevented. Mr. Johnson's loss will be close to SI 500 dollars. G. M. Butts will build a new house on his lots in the north side. The stone is on the ground and he expects to have it completed to live in before cold weather sets in.
