Regrets from Armstrong. Armstrong Journal: The members of Emmet lodge regret very much that they could not be present in a body, but a number of them are sojourning in the south and several had made other arrangements for that date. It is unnecessary to say that the visitors present undoubtedly had a very enjoyable time. No one ever went to Algona and came away dissatisfied with the town, the people, or the entertainment.

Waud; Swea City, R. M. Richmond; Wesley, A. R. Specht; Whtttemore, J. A. Brouden.

It shall be their duty to advance the interests of the division in their respective localities, and they shall use their best endeavors to maintain and increase the membership of their division.

H- -f- -f- McGregor is going into the summer resort business and the people of that town show that they are alive to the Hituation. Tho conference committee of the Methodist church and Epworth league of Deeorah district have selected McGregor as the location for their assembly grounds. The high tableland overlooking the city and the Mississippi makes a fine situation. The people of the town give 25 acres of land rent free, agree to erect a pavilion on Lho same, furnish city water and electric lights free for ten years and grant other privileges. -f- -*- -4- C. F. Gullixson of Bode is again ap- lointed deputy oil inspector. Will. F. Smith was a candidate for the place. -*- -f- -*The Algona Baptists secure Rev.. Stiles of Livermore. The Gazette -ays: Rev. Stiles has accepted the call >f pastor to the Baptist church at Algona, und begins his labors there the 1st of March, at which time he will remove with his family to that place. The community at large will regret that he is to leave this place. He is undoubtedly the most able man that ever occupied the Baptist pulpit here as pastor, and his ability is recognized outside of this community. The fact is evident when we reflect that he goes to occupy a pulpit where he succeeds the most able Baptist minister in the slate, Rev. Landis. Mrs. Stiles has also been a very valuable assistant in his work, and labors with a sincerity and earnestness of purpose which cannot fail to accomplish whatever she undertakes. We wish them well in their new field, where their labers will be lighter, but not necessarily less earnest than here, und we congratulate the Algona people on tlieir 'call to Rev. Stiles being accepted. H- -j- -i- Judge Quarton gave the Spirit Lakers a lecture on court manners last week. The Beacon reports and says: Monday afternoon the court kindly, but seriously addressed the spectators on court room manners, having been seriously annoyed by persons carelessly entering the court room and settling themselves for an indefinite stay without removing their hats. He said that the American people were becoming so thoroughly imbued with the unlimited freedom and privileges of this country that it was not uncommon for many to so far forget themselves as to utterly disregard the established rules of etiquette to which the public generally is entitled to and should demand. The lecture was timely and to the point. Courts of justice should maintain a high standard of dignity and the public be taught to respectfully regard that standard. Judge Quarton proved conclusively that his early education in mental arithmetic had not been neglected, when he explained how much it cost to run the court, commencing with a day and reducing the time to minutes with great rapidity and accuracy. The illusti'ation was given to impress upon tardy jurors the amount of extra expense the county would be put to by some juror being a few minutes late at the opening of each session and delaying proceedings. The lecture had the desired effect. The improvements to be made on The Inn atDixon's Beach, on Okoboji, are to be much more extensive than announced in the Beacon a few weeks since, Mr. Beck having enlarged the scope of his former plans, while here looking after the matter. There will be 46 sleeping apartments added instead of 36, as was at first contemplated, and an annex 38x70 feet, which will be divided into a kitchen and dining room. These improvements are needed to accommodate the crowds of summer visitors who flock to that resort. Musical Entertainment. Following is the program for the musical entertainment to be given under the auspices of the Y. P. S. C. E. at the Congregational church, Friday evening, Feb. 25.
