Twenty Years Ago Advance, December 15, 1910, A now edition of the Algona cook book was being - published by the Episcopal Aid. Of the edition 600 copies wore bound in board and 400 in cloth, and the former sold at 60 cents nnd the latter at $1. The book was a reprint of a. cook book issued many years previously and only the advertisements were changed. t t t Mrs. H. if. WUIson suffered severe burns when gasoline In which she was cleaning 1 lace exploded. t t t The office of the Moore Bros Coal and Grain Co. at the Iowa Central station was burglarized, t but nothing of value was found by the yegg-men. The- safe Inner door was opened with a crowbar. t t t Alderman IJou-yer's stunt In cutting down Western Union telegraph poles when the company delayed moving them as ordered by tho city council brought action the following das', and 12 men were at work a week later changing the poles to the alleys. Mr. Bowyer had been named as a city council committee to see that the poles were moved. The company promised, but did nothing soon enough to suit Mr. Bowyer, HO he chopped down two poles before he could be stopped. t t t Directors of the fair association chocked the hook* and found a balance on hand of $1SO. T. I 1 . Harrington was secretary and .1. M. Furley, Whitteniore, \va.s president. t t t A new tubular bol'er for the Methodist church way being considered. The church auditorium was too cold for comfort in the winter. t t t A children's story hour was being conducted at the library every Saturday afternoon, and the hour was changed from 2:30 to two hours later. Four story hours were planned for the coming week bti Christmas themes, to be given on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday afternoons after school, t t t Captain I>. D. Dodge was 85 years old and a family dinner party was given In his honor, t t t "The Girl in the Kimona" and "The Rosary" were current attractions at the Call Opera House, t t t Cement blocks for the proposed Presbyterian parsonage were to be made during the winter by members of the congreg-atlpn. The work was donated, and only the material was charged for. t t t The- Eminetsburg Democrat said that H. J. Wilson, Algonlan, who had Algona and Emmetsburgr territory for car sales, had sold $1>20,000 worth of care In a year, t t t Potatoes were selling at 55 and 60 cents at Tltonka, t t t Whttetnore was to vote on establishing a waterworks system and Issuing bonds to pay for it. Flowing wells in the north end of the county were running dry because of continued dry weather, t t t A new wnter works system had been Installed at Fenton at a cost of $0000. The well, 250 feet deep, cost $500. A storage tank and mains, with labor incident to in- stallatlon, made up the remainder of the cost. The city had also purchased a hose cart and a quantity of hose for fire protection, t t t Father 1>. M. I>ol>beVst<>in maintained a skating rink for children during the winter, charging only enough to pay for the cost. The first person in th e family secured a season ticket for $1.50 and other members of the family got one for nO cents. The year before Father Dobberstein lost $G on the proposition. The grotto and the lake were then in their Infancy, t t t An exhibit of articles made by the manual training classes was to be displayed in store windows In time grade boys in the upper grades January, Supt, j, F, Overmyer announced, The subject had Just been Introduced to Algona, bxit'had met with Instant favor. At that received training, but with Increases in high school enrollment, this became too burdensome, i and the grade pupils were dropped. t t t George W. Godfrey, 1909 • Ames graduate, was helping the extension department of th e state college at Ames with animal husbandry work, and wns to aid In short course work for farmers to be given in Algona during the winter. Mr. Godfrey was recognized then as an expert In hog and cattle problems. t t t . ^A Skat club had been organized and two rooms back of the Grose real estate office hod been rented focAclub -rooms. ttt ' r E«l lllmkford gave a talk on pioneer experiences a t a meeting of the newly formed county historical society. His father, J. E. Blackford, In (18,55 was Influenced to come to Kossuth county by Asa and Am brosp Call, brothers of Mrs. Blackford, who were enthusiastic about th 0 country i n which they had set- fed the year before. The trip to Algonn, then a camp of a few log cabins, was made by covered wagon f"om'i Indiana, The wagon whee's wore held on by llnch pins, which \v-nt throuirh the axle, Instead of n burr. The wagon had a pine tar b'ic'tet 'hung O n thlj rear, and the tar WTS used to lubricate the wheels. T'->p first settler they met was Alex Brown Sr,, grandfather of A. J. Brown. They lived in an addition to the Asa Call cabin the first winter, and built their own cabin next spring when the came the Spirit Lake massacre, nnd Mr. Blackford recalled the erection of the stockade, which stood where the Steele clothing store Is now located. A plate on ,the front of the store memorializes the stockade. 3' t t t Two blocks and an outlot were added to the incorporation of Lone Rock. t t f ' The Donaldson brothers of Milford had constructed an airship which flew several blocks In a trial flight carrying a pilot. The was taken ujJ in a wind, which changed its direction, and blew It into, telephone %lfe9, but the pilot Wjis uninjured! hi the crash. The report of the flight does not stats t t-f A joke 'In the .ready-printed Inside pages of the' paper was entitled "In 1925" and purported to be a conversation between the governor and a secretary, In wfilch the governor ordered out the state aviator to catch a orlrHlnal pilot flying over the state. .
