As announced by THE UPPER DES MOINES last week it is definitely sett tied that the northwestern teachers' association of Iowa will meet in Algona. The date is fixed for May 4-5-6, the very best that could be chosen for a gathering hereabouts. This association covers the entire northwestern portion of the state and as many as 1,000 teachers have been enrolled at its meetings. This is the first time It has visited one of the smaller towns, and the attendance may not be as large. But it is safe to count on from GOO to 800 at the very least. Prof. Spencer, as a member of the executive committee, has been muinly instrumental in securing the meeting, and his efforts have been ably seconded by Supt. Van Erdewyk. There are several reasons why Algona should make this a notable event, and fortunately the town will be in shape to do it. Our new lights will be in, und the new church will be open. Work will have begun on the new school house, and one or more of the new railways will be in process of construction. Every teacher who comes will look Algona over with a view to Its fitness for a new state normal school, and if the meeting is rightly sustained it will be possible for the town to present its advantages in a way to win a cordial support. The only matter that will bother the town wtll be providing lodgings und board. The visitors expect to pay for their accommodations, und everybody will have to open his house freely. THE BURT TEACHERS' MEETING. Supt. Van Erdewyk's big teachers' meeting to, be held at Burt is billed for Jan. 21, next week Saturday. The program is as follows: Forenoon session at 9:00.
