TIGGES, DRUGS 5 East Stole St. Algona, Iowa By Evelyn Caoy There are still carnivals, and they usually appear each summer m this area. But to those of us who retnetn- ber the BIG CARNIVAL of IflOf, there will never be another HEAL carnival. For that carnival was here a" whole week, and ran all during that time fight on State Street. I can recall the exact locations of the Various concessions. Beginning on the east side of the Council Oak store, between it and Kresensky's, was a snow which interested me greatly. Here was the glass blower, and I attended the show often, looking in wide-eyed awe at the man blowing the most beautiful ana interesting objects for sale. Lucky numbers drew some of the larger and more expensive articles, and I hoped with all my heart I'd be lucky enough to draw one of the glass cases covering plush roses and other objects. (If I had such a monstrosity now, I'd send it to the dump as fast as possible). I did win one little souvenir, however, that made me the envy of all my playmates, a tiny nursing bottle for my favorite doli: My father always accused me of "working" him. When he came home one noon and I expressed a desire to go ,to the glass blowers, he took me there, never asking if I had been there before, and I didn't think to tell him. When we got inside the tent, I said, "You go this way, etc., etc." Surprised, he said, "You have been here before?" I said, "Sure." He didn't say any more at the time, but years later he often joked about using his time at noon to take a child to see a show she had already seen several times. World's Smallest Horse Between Kresensky's and the 'ormer Mainliner was "The Smallest Horse on Earth". I did- i't doubt it for a moment, and 1 selieve it would compare in size .o a Newfoundland dog. Next, be- .ween the White Front Tavern and the court house corner was another show—a Jesse James affair. Between the south corner of he court house and the Algona lotel, was a "girly-girl" affair. Before each performance, beauti- 'ul (?) girls would come out on a platform in front of the tent, do a little dance and sing. The last tent was pitched between the Alona hotel and the Security bank. don't remember what was shown there. At that intersection was a rais- sd platform with a contraption built on it'which looked much like snow fencing, but much higher, and placed in a circle, possibly ?0 feet in diameter. This was a great attraction, and in rode bicyclists who started at an easy pace, then gained momentum, and gradually rode to nearly the top of this circular "tube". That really WAS a show! It always 'reminded me of wild animals seeking a way of escape. It was the most fascinating performance. Good Old Ferris Wheel "the best of all was the ferris wheel, in front of the Chrischilles Store, and, what patience my rflbiHer and father had taking me for fide after ride in it. Mother Went a few times, but my father took me the most times. I have a suspicion fife etljoyed it almost as much (is I. I can feel now the thrill of tfojrig Up and up—way to the fop—then that lovely, queer feeling fri the pit of my stomach aa We reflched the point where nothing could be seen above nor below, as the littie "cars" came down. I still get that feeling when riding down an elevator. Of course, thfete was usual carnival refreshments—popcorn, peanuts, pop, and all the indigestible things. PfobaWy the pries of bicarbonate of soda zoomed that week, for it Was an era before Alkaseltzer and Bisodal. We were in the Peruna and Lydia Pirikham period. Then the night — the wonderful, exciting, hilarious nights. Bands, confetti, laughter, and fun galore! The crowds, the whole glamorous, giddy goings-on! But, oh, the stillness, the awful qiliet of the streets and the stark emptiness when the carnival had g6ne. It-seemed so lonesome and I wished With all my heart that all days could be "Carnival Days.'' •• M •• •• • For prompt reliel L IM L L I from stomach ulcer | n r L • Pain§, gas, heari. • •••••• • burn, belching and nausea due to excess acid, get a 25c box of famous, wonder-working UDQA Tablet! absolutely FREE today at ' Tigges Drug Store LONG TIME Dr. W.
