DEDICATING THE CHURCH, Bid DAY TOR THE PRESBYTERIANS Dr. Greene of Fort Dodge Dellvfei-ect the Chief Sermon—Church Is Wholly Out of Debt, The new Presbyterian church was dedicated last Sunday. The successful issue of this enterprise is a matter for congratulation. This congregation^ organized some three years ago, has struggled against much difficulty, but has much reason for satisfaction in its continued growth. The present enterprise has had great assistance from the devotion mid painstaking labor of the pastor, Rev. S. Ollorenshaw, who has been abundant In labors in its behalf. The community has also been liberal In its support and tlio gratitude of the church for assistance from the business men and other church organizations is is heartfelt and abundant. A thanksgiving service was held Saturday afternoon and the formal dedication was made Sunday morning. Dr. T. S. Bailey of Cedar Rapids, Dr. J. M. Greene of Port Dodge, Rev. J. B. Clnpp, Prosbytorial superintendent of Sunday schools, were visiting Presbyterian ministers, and Rev. D. M. Stiles of the Baptist church and Dr. Day of the Methodist church assisted in the services. The sermon was by Dr. Greene of Fort Dodge, and was a helpful presentation of the faith that the quality of real truth could give to an apparent minority the effect of a real majority. The preacher was earnest and clear cut in his expression and adjusted his ar- ument appropriately to the occasion. At the close of the sermon Dr. Bailey presented the financial condition, which showed a deficit of $325. Without further particular urging $390 was subscribed, and tho church was dedicated free of debt by Dr. Bailey in a simple yet beautiful manner. At the service sot for the afternoon Pastor Ollerenshaw gave an interesting review of the history of the church, and Rev. A. L. Berry led a consecration service. In the evening a platform meeting was held. Tho scripture was read by Rev. W. J. Suokow of the Congregational church and addresses were made jy Rev. Pressley of Hurt, Rev. A. L. Berry of Livermore, Rev. J. B. Clapp, and Dr. T. S. Bailey. The collections of the afternoon and evening ran the total amount raised to considerably over $400. The special music for the day was deeply appreciated, and consisted of solos and anthems by members of the various church choirs, with Prof. L. J. Smith as organist. The church is a beauty, both in appearance and convenience. The tasty painting of the outside is matched by a rich interior finish. Tho pews are of oak and are the most comfortable made. The auditorium is 40x42 and is closely seated to accommodate conveniently 300, while the lecture room, opening into the audience room by rolling partitions accommodates 100 more in full froht view of the pulpit. By a count Sunday there were nearly 500 people accommodated at the morning service, and the evening service was even- more crowded, many being turned away. The cost of this church reaches $3,500 and it is safe to say that it furnishes as much convenience as many churches costing $1,000 more. The Presbyterians are to be congratulated on this, happy issue of their labor, and now being possessed of a huroh home their labor will be far more efficient In the future. New Years Dinner. The Epworth League of the Methodist church will keep " open house," December 31, in the L. M. B. Smith building just across the street from the Kossuth County State bank. Dinner will be served in the best of style and the 25 cent turkey dinner will be a great attraction. Take your company for it will be an occasion you will not fail to enjoy.

Walker, father of the Walker Bros., died at his home Friday morning at 11 o'clock after a brief illness which took the form of a gradually increasing paralysis. The funeral was held Sunday at 2 o'clock, Rev. Day officiating. Mr. Walker came to Kossuth 11 years ago buying a farm west of Algona, north of C, C. Kuhn's. After a year he went back to Wisconsin and sold his property there, and then spent some time in Canada. When he came again to Kossuth he made his home in Algona and has lived here about eight years. He took no active part in business in town, being 60 years of age when he moved in, but assisted his sons in the store, making many friends and winning the respect and esteem of everybody. Last summer he built a comfortable and commodious home. He was born in Perry Centre, Wyoming county, N. Y., July 13, 1830, was brought up on a farm until 18 years of age, when he went to Livingston county and learned the moulder's trade. At the age of 21 he went to Vaughn, Canada, where he worked at his trade about 13 years. He was married at Vaughn Deo. 29, 1859, to Miss Hannah Kirby, moving with his family to Wisconsin in 1866, where he was engaged in farming. Six children were born to the family, four sons and two daughters, All are living in Algona but one son, Henry, who died a year ago in California and was buried here. The daughters are Mrs, H. L.

NUMEROUS SURVEYS ARE MADE. those Through Algona, Made by the Igtva Central Folks, Are the ;' Most Perplexing. Engineer Hill and his corps of eut" veyors locating the line 6f the Iowa Central, have created a sensation In town the past week that puts the school house location in the shade. They have run one line from a point near 0. M. Doxsoe's home up north west through by B. F. Reed's house and so on until they strike the ravine going north by Chubb Bros, home and out by the water mill. This line is considered entirely feasible from an engineering standpoint, but would cut up a lot of gardens and pass through several .very desirable homes, and the people who would have the track under their parlor windows are not at all in an amiable frame of mind. Another lino comes into town near D. T. Smith's and cuts across the south side of town running through Ambrose A. Call's farm near his hog barn, and so on around by J. E. Blaokford's, following the bluff line until a jump should be made across to the mouth of McClarney oreok. Mr, Hill says thlB Is a very feasible route. • r Mr. Hill and his party left Algona Monday evening for Pella, where' they will spend a month making the final survey for the line to Des Moines. Then they will come back and make a final location from Belmond to Algona. Mr. Hill says it is cheaper to come around through LuVerne township than to go up to tho Prairie church, and that it is not at all out of the way to bring the road to Algona along his preliminary survey. It Is rumored that Prairie will call a second election and vote the tax in order to get the depot at the church. It seems that many opposed the tax believing the road would come anyway. It Is now certain that they will not get the road if the tax is not voted. The Survey at Corwltli. Hustler: The surveyors for the Iowa Central came into Corwith last week and departed on a due western course on the north half section line of Lu- Verne township, as they are determined to ignore Prairie township, it having failed to vote the required tax. There is considerable feeling among the people of Amsterdam township in regard to the location of the Iowa Central depot in the township. If centrally located all concerned will feel that the powers that be kept the faith, but If not So far all is conjecture in Corwith, as two lines have been run. If they come in on one proposed route, F. M. Pardeo will be out a chicken house and W. H. Gowdy will move onto the street. linlley on Humboldt. Al. Adams lives down at Humboldt where the rock comes so near the surface that the people have to" dig their graves while they are young and strong, and then carry them around with them to make them look cheerful after reading Al.'s paper. THE TITONKA BOOM, The KiiKliio Now Whistles on the Peuceiul Uuffulo-35 UullcUngs Are Now Up. It is said that the new. railroad, reached Titonka Monday night. Work was going on Sunday a,t full blast. About 25 buildings all together are now up and others are going in as rapidly as possible. Three grain elevators will be built at once. Three banks, two lumber yards, etc., are already located. Great is Titonka.
