Our sister town, Algona, has always been a very moral and temperate town, especialy temperate, but they put up more "blue sky" business ,over there than any other town in north west Iowa. It looks to us as though a delegation to Ft. Madison for a stipulated time would clear the city of some of its atmospherial speculators to the great credit of the town.— West'Bend Journal. Patronize Home Industries. Algona is very fortunate in the possession o'f grist mill facilities, the best that, perhaps, any town in the state possesses. Several thousands of dollars have been expended this summer in building and refitting our mills, and the outlay is one that should be appreciated by our people. Heretofore the products of our mills have not'been as largely consumed at home as they Anight, have been, but that fact was 'to some extent excusable. Our mills were not up to the highest standard of modern excellence, and their flour did not always give satisfaction. But now there is no such excuse. The Jones & Stacy mill, which is completed, is turning out a grade of flour unexcelled by any thing produced in Minneapolis or any other place. The mill is fitted up from basement to garret with the best machinery known to milling science, and with,a first-class miller operating it, the result could not be other than It is. We have tried the flour and know whereof we speak. If > Algona would build herself up she must support her own institutions when they are as good" as exist anywhere. Try the flour, and if you find it satisfactory give' it the preference over a foreign product. ' . Money to loan on second mortgages, GEO. 0. CALL. Eight Mile. .
