UPPEK DB8MOIKB8: ALGONA, IOWA, WEDNESDAY, JUNE 14, 1899. gfci Upper §# f*r<3f*AJ* Ieopf, ttrr«* nwynthjr ... 40 _ «Bt to *ftjr *& . B«i»ft f>y draft, nw«*r'«•**, or exprvM at- At tow* Cftf. Ofl« not»W« fgfttare of commencement week at the nfiirertftjr WM the appearance of a Catholic prfeat, & Jew- lift rabbi, a Congreffatfooallgt, a Bap- tlst, and a Pretty terfan pwtor on the Mote platform at the baccalaureate ex- eref*e«. Such * combination rofght not be untnroat at tnanjr poblfc meetings. But it ha* not probably been often seen io BtrlcUjr reHfloun «errice« on a Sabbath afternoon. Kabbi Hirech of Chicago, who prefer* the customary title of reverend, who preaches on Sunday instead of Saturday, and who IB in many ways one of the advanced thinkers of the country, preached the sermon, while the Catholic father made the opening prayer, and the Presbyterian pastor read scripture from the old testament to accommodate the rabbi with bU text. Such a thing could scarcely have occurred even 25 years ago. That it occurred at a state university shows how catholic our state education is, and how through state education both In the public school and university society Is protected from many forms of Intolerance and sectarian prejudice. •*-•*--•Another very notable feature of this year's commencement was the corner stone laying for the new collegiate building. The stone had been laid a month before, but the usual exercises were postponed till commencement Wednesday, when Congressman Dolliver delivered the oration. The Iowa City Republican says it was the finest oration that has been delivered in Iowa City in many years, if not the finest in the history of commencement exercises, and commencement week is prolific of oratory. Mr. Dolliver was at his best. Oov, Shaw presided over the exercises, and Prof. Patrick, one of the alumni of the school who ha« achieved a national reputation In his work, spoke for the faculty. The basement of the now building Is about completed. The contract for the superstructure is let, the whole to be completed a year from next September. This building will be as good an any university building in the west, although not as expensive us some at Madison. •*--»-•«Another notable.feature of this commencement was the election of a president to succeed President ScbaefTor. Tho choice foil upon Goo. E. MacLean, for four years president of the Nebraska university. Ho was before that professor of literature in the Minnesota state university. Ho is 48 years of ago, a man of most pleasing address, a public speaker, und a scholar of standing. Ho was commended to tho board of regents by President Northrup and Gov. PHIs- bury of Minneapolis with unusual warmth, His scholarship IH of tho finest typo, as tho following review of his career indicates: Ho was born at Uook Valley, Com,., In 1850, propurod for collogo at WHllston som- i^'wm, 1 IIwn l}J°".

There were ninety-fire taking 1 scientific, literary and clanical degrees. In the professional school* tbe number was not eo large a« in previous year». This was owing to the radical advance that bas been made in length and requirements of tbe professional courses, Tbe Iowa dental college now ranks with the beet In tbe United States, and both medical schools hare lengthened their courses and greatly increased the work necessary to a diploma. Tbe law school still has a two years' course because the legislature allows students to be admitted to tbe bar on two years' read- Ing. As soon as tbe law can be changed, however, this school will aleo demand a three years' course. -*--»- •+• It is not generally understood, but the professional schools pay their own way at the university or nearly so. Tax payers often ask why they should provide schools for lawyers and dentists at public expense. The fact is, these schools are not maintained at public expense, but In many instances yearly turn over a surplus towards the expenses of tbe college proper. The dental school this past year paid $1,200 overall expenses. The tuition In the professional schools is calculated to make them self sustaining. In the college proper the tuition is as nearly free as incidental expenses will allow. In many of the state schools it is entirely free. The state by maintaining schools for professional training is enabled to set a high standard of efficiency for its lawyers, doctors, etc., which is a proper public Interest, without material expense to the general public. THE Upper Des Moines editors meet at Spencer next week Thursday and Friday. Gov. Shaw delivers the address, and a splendid program is arranged. Friday will be devoted to a picnic at Okobojl and a dinner at Arnold's. COL. HKNDKKSON Is conceded the speakershlp. All of the opposing candidates have withdrawn. With Allison in the senate and Henderson speaker of the house Iowa will be at the front in national legislation. DUIUNO the week a new complication has arisen In tho local senatorial con- iatter isn't doieg a thing- trat keeping •till. Tbe writer baa BO hesitancy in acknowledging bi* belief that Doiliver !• tb« beet fflaa of tbe three, aod tfeat be i* tbe cbofee of the common people if not of tbe potitieiae*. Tbe Mares?o Republican is of tb« opinion that "many Iowa men *oold honor tbe United States senate in tak- ioer tbe seat there, bat uooe more to than 3. P. Dolliver. Heieaebiga* the state, as broad as tbe country a&d of national greatness. When the time comes for him tbe nomination will go unanimous.* Wbittetnore Cbsmpioc: Gardner Cowles and A. D. Clarke were looking over tbe poHtical field yesterday. Tbey found everything looking favorable. II THIS IEI8HBORHOOD. Gov. Sbaw speaks at Clear Lake July 28, Al.

Faltinson, one of Armstrong's wide awake editors, is newly wed to Miss Laura Houghton. If they will come to the editors' meeting at Spencer they can receive congratulations in person. Emmetsburg Tribune: Frank Nic- oulfn of Algona was a caller in Em- raetsburg Saturday. He Is engaged in the land business, and judging from his dimensions physically he is prospering in that line. A stone and cement dam has been put in at the outlet of Medium lake at Emmetsburg, and the water prevented from running out. Any more heavy rains will raise the water of the lake above the normal level. Webb Richards tells the Britt News that business at Kanawha is booming and says that when he arrived there five buildings comprised the town but that it now has 25 buildings and many will be built in a short time. Nick Winkel was trying to give the masons a few pointers when they were, doing some repairing back of hie bil- lard hall at Llvormore, when he got his finger crushed between two rocks. The masons are doing the work on their own judgment now. Mrs. Martha G. Haskell of Fort Dodge has givon $10,000 for a public library building, and Webb Vincent, O. M, Oleson and G. S.

The announcement of tbe death of Mrs. Sylvester Rist came very suddenly Saturday. She had been in failing health for several years, but up to within a few days had been able to be about. Her last illness was brief, resulting in heart failure. The funeral was held at the home Sunday, Rev. Stiles officiating, and a long procession of old time friends followed the remains to the Algona cemetery. Mrs. Rist's maiden name was Mary A. Millen. She was born in Grafton. Vt., July 22, 1839, and was in her 60th year. She came to Kossuth in 1856 with the Millen family and three years later was married to Mr. Rist, going to the home where they have since always lived. Seven children were born, five of whom are living, Henry. Dr. A. L., Irving, Bessie, and Sidney. George and a baby are dead, buried in the cemetery here.

But it Is still tq bo shown that the president has taken a backward step, SOMIQ of our Iowa contemporaries who wore bound to have an extra session of congress and bound to have the Indianapolis hank scheme adopted are again after Senator Allison because he says the country needs no radical changes in its financial policy.

Tho first students to receive their diplomas from tho high school under tho now course graduated last Friday evening. President E. B. Butler presented diplomas to Winonu Scott and IdaSohichtl with a brief but pointed address. Tho first part of the program was given by tho pupils that worenotof the graduating class. This WHS done in order that an evening's entertainment might bo furnished. All the participants acquitted themselves with credit. The subject of Miss Scott's oration was "Remember tho Maine." This patriotic topic was presented from a broad standpoint, the speaker not confining herself to the Immediate history connected with the late war. The Idea was that we should remember the Maine not In a spirit of retaliation or revenge but for the lessons the destruction of the ship and the history of the war have taught us. Miss bohlchtl's subject was "The Influence of Music." She showed how music has been a factor in theprogressof civilization and how it will continue to benefit mankind. The influence of music on particular individuals was mentioned Since mankind is made of Individuals whatever helps Individuals will be of lasting benefit to mankind. Both orations were presented with appropriate gestures and rendered in a perfectly distinct manner. In this respect all of tho exercises of the evening are to be commended, Above all else an audience wants to hear what a speaker has to say. The opera house was tastily decora ted for the occasion. The class motto "Upward and Onward" In black and gold was suspended from the ceiling of the stage. A bank of ferns adorned the front of the platform which the electric light displayed to a good advantage, 'The muslo was furnished by the orchestra and the pupils of the schools. 1 he school muslo was rendered under the direction of MissHanaford, the AUDITOR'S OFFICE, Board met pursuant members present.

Nearly 400 of them Gathered In Algona ntid Enjoyed Themselves— The Bleirest Gathering yet Held. The district Odd Fellows' meeting in Algona last Monday was the biggest yet held. It is said to have been the biggest society reunion ever held by any order in Algona. Delegates were present from Mason City, Forest City, Clarion, Webster City, Ruthven, Emmetsburg, Britt, and intermediate points. Oyer 300 sat down to the banquet and this did not include all who were present. The morning march was an imposing spectacle. The special feature was the uniformed canton of patriarch militants from Emmetsburg led by M L Brown. There were 25 in the canton and they were handsomely equipped. At the opera house J. C. Longueville of Dubuque delivered the address. It was in the main a re view of Odd Fellowship. It was heartily enjoyed by all. The banquet was served at noon and it was an elegant affair. At night a supper was also served and about 150 were present for that. The afternoon and evening trains bore the visitors away. Among the notable visitors was the grand patriarch from Davenport, S. P. Smith from Iowa Falls, John Beahlin from Clinton and Mrs. Babbitt from WebsterCity. They all expressed great pleasure at the reception tendered them by the local lodge. DE. D. P. RUSSELL IS DEAD. Algona's One-time landlord Passes Away Suddenly-Hurled at Humbolt. D. P. Russell, who built Algona's old brick hotel, died at New Orleans, June 2, as the result of paralysis, caused by overheating while fighting fire the day before at Laurier, Miss. The remains were brought to Humbolt and buried there. Mr. Russell was 65 years of age, born in Courtland county, New York, Feb 10, 1835. His death will recall many interesting reminders of early days'in many northern Iowa towns. He came to Algona about 1870 and was a well-known figure hereabouts. He went to Llvermore when that town was founded and then to Humboldt. In late years he has been speculating in the south. tbe delegates and owing to their splendid success tbe celebration was indeed fine. Algona people are noted for the cordial welcome and sincere hospitality extended to visitors. One feels "at home" immediately upon entering its pleasant precincts. The city is beautifully situated upon the banks of the Des Moines river and crossing the bridge near tbe mills, where the rippling river plays over the noisy dam, the rushing water, together with green moss on the mill side, present a most facinating picture. The large hotel being erected is a fine architectural structure. The several churches about the city are finished in beauty, and the opera house will do credit to a much larger place. Indeed Algona is an ideal little city and no doubt the next few years will see her one of Iowa's most prominent and prosperous inland towns.
