McGregor, Miss Randall and Mr. Starr, The evening address was by Mr. J. A. Harlan, who supplied the place of E. B. Stevenson of Cedar Rapids in an able presentation of the merit and needs of the work. The resolutions endorsed the work of the new missionary, Mr. Fave and pledged co-operation with the state association and American Sunday School union. Reports show 49 Sunday schools, 2,280 pupils, and 312 teachers and officers in Kossuth county. An organization was effected with the following officers: President, Milton Starr, Algona; vice president, C. J. Doxsee, Algona; secretary and treasurer, Miss Lolla Randall, Aigona.
