The butt of the tree lies where the front porch of the cottage was before the storm. The wind.carried the wreckage from the foundation 40 to 50 feet toward the road, .sweeping the .site of the cottage •bare with the exception of the tree, and dumping the boards, siding, furniture bedding, utensils and dishe.s helter-skelter in a jumble on the back part of the lot.

The Kossuth fail- is recognized as one of the leaders in county fairs in Iowa, and attractions showing here one year, are sought by secretaries of larger fairs. The outline of the county fair program is given in an advertisement on the second section of this week's Advance, but many of the features of the. fair could not be included because the space was small. A prepared story of the fair follows. Prepare now to take the whole family to the Kossuth county fair which will be held in Algona September 7-11. No effort is being pared to make it the best county air ever held in Algona. One out- .tanding difference in the program his year will be a change in the 'ree acts the middle of the week, .vhlch will enable the association to iut on the biggest free-act program ever offered to any county fair audience.

For particulars about races .anjL Dal1 .Sames see the adv. which appears in the weekly papers. The Algona Military Rand will give a, concert each afternoon and evening. There will be so much to see this year that nobody will be able to see it all in one day, particularly the free acts. For one of the outstand; ing performances there is Miss Bee Kyle in a 100-ft. dive from a ladder into a small tank of water. Miss Kyle will perform each day of the fair, in the afternoon and evening. Tuesday and Wednesday she will be on the program with Will Morris, Pickard's Trained Seals, the Van de Velde troupe and the Six Pashas. Morris' act is a bicycle performance that creats a lot of laughs. He is a clever trickster. The pickard seal net embraces many difficult juggling and balancing tv.'cks. The accuracy of the ani'tmls is remarkable.

Miss Rist, who was 56 years old, was an invalid, and during the storm was in a bedroom of the cottage. Her wheel chair was found more than a block away the day following the storm. It is not known whether she was in the chair or on the bed when the storm struck. Miss Rist was born April 17, 1875, on the present Otto Knudsen farm two miles south of Algona. Her parents, the Sylvester Rists, were pioneers in the neighborhood and lived here till 1910, when they moved to Irvington, were Mr. Rist died in 1913. Mrs. Rist died In 1899. Bessie Rist was baptized in the Baptist church when she was 14 years old, and sans in the choir for several years, and was numbered among the most ardent church members. When she was 26 years old, in 1901, she contracted meningitis, and for ten weeks was unconscious with the disease. Her sickness left her partly paralyzed, and since that time she has not been able to get around without a wheel chair. She was able to care for herself around the'house to some extent. Miss Rist attended the Algona schools. Since she was crippled she has made her home with the late Mrs. Marian Smith, of Irvington, better known in the community as "Aunt Mate." Mrs. Smith died in 1925. Following Mrs. Smith's death Bessie Rist came to Algona to make-her home with the Dr. Rists. rate: First 100 kwh. at 5 cents; balance at 3 cents.
