Tttl Wfflffi m® MOINIS: ALGONA, IOWA, WEDNESDAY, BECEMfeEK 20, 1868. NOT HED HEADS Truth About the July Mltorla Meeting at Spirit take at Last Comes to the Surface* Senator Funk's Telegram Misconstrued— Louie Lange Tells All About It Happened. We have always understood that it was a diminutive girl that he eouldn'1 conveniently arrange for that made Senator Punk lukewarm about the editorial meeting at Spirit Lake, hut Louie Lange in the Pocahontas Record says it was a lack of girls: A. B. Funk of the SpiritLakeBeacon is one of the most philanthropic editors in the state, and is constantly studying how to do the most good to the greatest numher. Mr. Funk publishes a paper at Iowa's summer resort and he has noticed year after year the great number of young ladies who visit that resort who are debarred from enjoying the sports and pastimes which are arranged to pass away the time and make life pleasant for them, owing to the fact that hut few young men take ad vantage of the low excursion rates and visit the lakes, consequently there is a great dearth of escorts. Year after year Bro. Funk has seen the wall-flowers increase and interesting young men diminish, until when a young man did go he was beset by girls by the dozen, until he •would pack up his grip in disgust and hie himself where the good things were not so numerous. Now this state of affairs has worried Bro. Funk and he conceived the idea that unless more young men could be enticed to the lakes, girls would refuse to come also, and then the big hotels would have to close and Iowa's summer resort would have to go out of business. So, with his head full of this important subject, Bro. Funk attended the winter meeting of the Upper Des Moines Editorial association at Eagle Grove, when a happy idea occurred to him. "Why not get all these editors up there and let them make it interest- ing tot OUP summer gifts 1 ?" • When h told the editors about it they made him president of the association and eac one assured him " We'll be thefe an we won't bring oui? wives either. "Well, boys, just write trie What ktii of a girl you want and I will have he ready, and you can have an immetts time dancing, boat riding, fishing, pie nicing, etc.' r Well, the editors wen home from Eagle Grove and they jus laid awake nights thinking of what t grand time they were going to have with Bro. Funk's girls next summer. Well, in the course of human events summer came, and the excitement wa at a white heat among theeditors when Bro. Funk invited them to come to Spirit Lake on August 15. immediate ly he began getting letters: " Pick me out a handsome blonde." "Give me a brunette." "I want one with brown hair," and Bro. Funk wore a smile as big as a barn door thinking about what a grand time the editors and girls were going to have. Another week passed and Bro. Funk had 192 orders for girls so he thought he had better look into the matter and see if the supply would equal the demand. On looking ovei his letters he found that 82 editors wanted red headed girls, and it worried him to know whether there were that many to be had, so he started out to see the hotel men. Each and every hotel was visited and he saved the Hotel Orleans until the last. Red headed girls were hard to find, and when the manager of the Hotel Orleans told Bro. Funk that there was not one there, a cold sweat crept out • oil him and he nearly fainted away. Great heavens, what was to be done? _learly the whole thing must be given up, so he telegraphed the boys: SPIIUT LAKE, Aug. 8,1893.—Meeting must je given up. There are only three red leaded girls within a radius of ten miles and have orders for 82. A. B, FUNK. Holiday Excursion Rates.

LoiTSCttEEk, Dec. 11.—Last weel people were notified that Letts Creek was alive. This week it is not more than half alive. La grippe has laid its clutches on us again and we have to succumb every time. Our merchant, Sohnuckle, has re turned and looks very natural. Wtt. Radig is shipping calves and poultry to the people of Chicago. Our butter maker, Rudolph Shendal has resigned his position and we under stand will give his attention to well making, whether with drill, augur, or spade we are not informed. But if we ore allowed to guess we would bet a lasl year blizzard it will not be with a spade. Wm. Schmidt's son, John, is holding down the job now. Whether he is permanent fixture is unknown. Wm. Meyer of Lotta Creek and Mr. KadJng and Chas. Mittag of Fenton all have their tubular wells finished. We venture to say they are glad, especially Kading and Mittag, as on account of breaks and mishaps they haye been long jobs. The wolves marketed some of Wm. Eladig's geese last week without leave. W. L. Joslyn is rather late with his rn. His renter was accommodating enough to give him the privilege of gathering a share, which he ought not ;o have done for he did not raise his own two-thirds. Chas. Roupe is able to be at work again. \ WE are closing out our stock of lothing at big bargains. Geo. L, Galbraith & Co. CALL and see my horse blankets be- ore buying. F. S. Stough.
