In spite of the heat the Workmen and all the Workmen's friends were out Frt day for the annual field day. Bright and early the Btu*t people made their appearance and headed by the Algona and Burt bands the long procession marched to the fair grounds about 10 o'clock. The amphitheatre was fillec and all the surrounding ground was fllled, and Win. Wilson of Washington, grand receiver of the order of Iowa, faced a fine audience as he arose to speak. He and Rev. Day of Algona both gave talks that aroused great enthusiasm, and the glee club was heartily cheered for its contribution to the enjoyment of the occasion. A basket dinner followed, and then came the afternoon sports. It was difficult to decide whether the ladles' foot race and ball throwing or the men's quilting was most entertaining. All the contests were lively and all snowed some surprising agility among the Workmen. Everybody who attended voted the Workmen a good order, and made a mental resolve to be present at the field day next year. The prize winners in the various contests were as follows: Throwing ball, Fred Dehnert first, Fred Fuller second.' Foot race, 100 yards, Geo. Allen first, frank Jenkinson second. Foot race, 80 yards, ladies, Mrs. H. Hermon first, Mrs. Jas. Stowe second. Throwing ball in barrel, ladies, Mrs. uy Grove first, Mrs. Bear second. Bicycle race, half mile, E. A. Patterson first, Jacob Mall second. Driving nail in oak plank, ladies, Miss Dau first, Mrs. Chas. Laage second. Running high jump, T. J. Vincent first, Frank Jenkinson second. Standing high jump Frank Jenkinson first, T. J. Vincent second. Running broad jump, Dave Godden first, Will Ladendorff second. Vaulting with pole, Frank Jenkinson first, Fred Fuller second. Putting 16-pound shot, Geo. Allen irst, Mr. Bartlett second. Throwing 16-pound hammer, Will iarlon first. The tug-of-war was the hottest ever md on the grounds and was finally won by Algona. The ball game lasted three innings and Burt won by a score of 12 to 10. The quilt sewing by the men was amusing. Meyers won first, while C. Byson got the booby prize. THE LOCAL FIELD. All should hear the Nashville Students' band with Prof. Lowery, the rr^at colored cornet 1st, at noon Friday, une 24. And be sure and attend their ntertainment at the opera house at night.

Secure our tickets in advance for a good seat. Prices only 15, 25, and 35 cents. The school board is making little progress with its new house. There is hitch in the sale of the bonds, the firm that bid them in raising a technical objection to them after having passed them. Judge Quarton has gone over their contention and says there is nothing to it. This is the same experience the board bad at its last sale, and probably means that the firm has better chance to use its money. STothing has been done farther as to a ite. The ladies of 'Algona and vicinity are invited to meet in G. A. B. half, Friday, June 24, at -2 o'clock, to work in supplies needed for the comfort of Company F.

Every woman who can co-operate in this work is requested to bring with her needle, thread, thimble, and scissors. Lawyer Curtiss is now the owner of a, likely-looking two-year-old trotter, The Nebraskan arrested last week for rying to pass a drug store advertising mltation of a $5 bill offered him the jolt as a fee for his services if be would lefend him. Mr. Curtiss soon con- 'inced the court that the bill was in no tense a counterfeit and the Nebraskan was let go, and immediately shook the dust of Algona from his feet. We hall expect to see Bro. Curtiss on the race track soon giving his horse a gait. A pleasant noon wedding last Thursday, June J0, at Ellington, Hancock county, joined Frank C. Farr and Miss Diena Colburn.

The office is selected which during the past year has done the larger business, and a difference of $50 on $8.000 settled it in Algona. Mr. Smith is now agent for both companies, will make all trains, and all packages for any destination go to iis office on Dodge street. Mr. Black- 'ord, agent for the American, has been a faithful official and many friends will •egret that he drops out.
