VV.s CELEBRATED Respite the .severe weather of Friday night, tlm. banquet given by tlie Algona lodge of United Workmen was a grand success, not only in this number attending but in the zest.with which tho occasion was enjoyed by all present. The decorations of Clarke's Hall wens elaborate, tho .national colors being displayed in great profusion, almost covering the walla and ceiling and entwining tho row of columns down the center. On the wall behind tho platform was displayed a shield in the national colors, with an anchor, and on the front of the shield the letters: "A. O. U. W." The two tables, extending the full length of: the hall and partly across the ends, were each in tho form of the letter L, representing "Loyal," the designation of the branch of tho order of which the Algona lodge forms a part, as distinguished from the "Kebel" lodges which claim the name of the order in this state. There were HI members of the lodge and ladies who sat down to the banquet, which was served by W. A. Ladendorf, himself a Workman, and the repast was one to help along the fame of that popular caterer. When the supper had been duly discussed order was called by toast master Geo. W.. Platt, Master Workman of the lodge, and the program was taken np, opening with a quartet by Mrs. Bowyer, Miss Agnes Randall, Dr. Morse, and Sheriff C.C.Samson. Dr. Morse then, delivered an address of welcome to the new members, and following him came Mr. C. Byson.'the man' who has done in an impromptu speech for.-'The Medical Department," J»r. M. J. Keiietiok spoke tor "The Tjnder-graduate,"inak- ing a very happy diagnosis^ and Judge Quarton followed wii'li a discussion of the question:-How- to llelorm Law Elections",-xliis remarks having reter- ence to ineidenls'of his University experience. The next two bpeeuiies were alike reminiscent, IS. U. Butler telling ''How lo preserve Johnson County Apples,"and J. T. Chrischilles answering the question, "Should Students Celebrate Halloween*"' Both olthesp uch- fcS were high class, and both speakers gave their auditors the benefit ol: sagely drawn moru!n thought up since leaving school. "The Cabbage as a Commencement flower," was tho toast which inspired tho eloquenco of our popular County SaperioU'iulent, 13. E. Heed. "Cook and his Bee Tree-," suggested a humorous poem, to C. B. llutchina, whioh was recited effectively, calling forth mingled lau,;hter,tears and cheers. It, \vasone of the great hits of the evening.

The increase has been accomplished by hard work put in for several months, A-large- number of the new members are farm- era's sons, and Union township is very largely represented. The merits of the order have been well advertised, and this fact will mean still further increase in the future. It is now.propos- ed to make the banquet an annual institution, and the proposition is popular with those wljo were out Friday night. The credit for the decorations is due to H. B. Mason. A. L.
