Drugstore Couches are Scolded— Every town that has a school with athletic competition has what Is commonly known as "drug store coaches," and Algona is no exception. There are certain men about town who think it their duty to explain how, why, and where the poach is \vrong. If they had the football team, they infer, it would win the state championship. If these so-<:alk-d the coach and couches would face tell what they think is wrong it would save a lot of hard feeling. Christmas Operetta is Planned— Miss Miller, music teacher, will have a Christmas operetta for the lower grades. To take parts she has chosen pupils from the Methodist and Congregational churches, the library, the City Hall, the Third ward, and Mfos Wallace's room at the Bryant.

The evening sermon theme will follow the marks of the Divine Hand in the direction of the kingdom on earth The youth of the church will find the Sunday school and the young people's meetings of helpful service. 1JAVTIST, Frank 11.

Wash., where she lived with a married sister. She spent the summer at Davenport with another' sister, Mrs. A. F. Cox, at whose "home Robert had rooms. 'At the wedding she wore a gown of light blue flat crepe. Mr. and Mrs. Cox served as attendants, Mrs. Cox wearing a cerise gown of flat crepe. The bridegroom, who Is a son of Mr. and Mrs. C. 'C. Wright, Algona, Is a graduate of the Algona^ high school. He studied engineering at Ames one year before entering the College of Pharmacy of the University of Iowa. Since graduation he has been In the employ of the Schlegel Drug Co. During vacations while In school Robert was a clerk at the Rexall drug store here. The new Mr. and Mrs. Wright are keeping house In a Davenport apartment. The C. C. Wrights came home Saturday. Workmen are to start in the near future on the now Thoi'ington Theatre and Community Hou«e, to Vie located in the former Boettcher building. Contracts have been let, Manager Rice reports. During December you will have a chance to see the four Marx brothers in "Animal Crackers," Will Rogers In "Lightning"; Joe E. Brown In "Going Wild", and Marlone Deterick In "Morocco." "Morocco" has Its premier in the marvelous Los Angeles Chinese theater on Christmas day—only two shows dally In the theater—and It comes to Algona just three days later. The magazine "Time" gives it a good ring. Each week in the Advance will appear a short story similar to this about the theater and movies. They are written by one who is not in any way connected with the theater, its management, or its finances. The writer believes that Algona is most fortunate in its theater, the class of shows that are obtained, and believes that many people miss features that they should see. After all, it is nice to sit in a comfortable chair and lose ourselves for an hour or two in the lives of others on the silver screen. If it has been a "tough" day the troubles can be forgotten, for a time at least, at a good movie. County Federation Meets Here— The Woman's club was hostess Tuesday to the county federation.
