The record low temperature of the year was recorded Friday night, when the mercury fell to S degrees below zero. Temperatures all last week 'failed to rise above the freezing point. Algona's 15 inches of snow began to diminish Monday, when old man winter released his grip and a January thaw was started. It continued Tuesday, but a drop in temperature slowed it up yesterday, and a cold wave, was predicted for last night. The thaw made the streets the slushiest ever seen here, with water beneath the snow and Unable to run off. City workmen plowed State street yesterday and began making paths for the water to escape. With little or no frost in the ground,, the thaw has made unimproved country roads almost impassable* and many farmers are finding themselves stranded at their farms. The weather forecast for yesterday was more snow, to be preceded by rain, but the change'had failed to materialize up to noon. The fal in . temperature was, welcomed by many farmers, who want the roads frozen so they can get to town. County snow plows were still busy early in the week despite melting temperatures. Temperatures for the Banquet and Dedication of Masonic Temple Draws Crowd Nearly 300 members of the Algona Masonic and Eastern Star lodges attended the dedication of the new Masonic Temple last Thursday night.

More than 200 were served. The hall seats more than 100, and two tables were filled to capacity by the crowd. Following the dinner the Masons adjourned to the lodge rooms on the third floor, where the lodge was opened preparatory to the dedication services. After the ritual work had been performed the lodge room was opened to the Eastern Stars and wives of members. It is estimated that more than 250 crowded into the lodge room, taxing its capacity. There were six rows "of chairs on both sides of the hall. Mr. Percival took the Grand Mas- ter's position, and other posts were filled as follows: Roy Richardson, S. G. W.; George St. John, J. G. W.; H. E. Bruns, S. G. D.; Louis Larson, Corwlth, J. G. D.; L. T. Griffin, T.; Dr. F. P. Klahr, chaplain; Ed Bartlett and W. A. Button, S. and J. G. S.

Wright, Clear Lake, past Grand Master; Chas. C. Hunt, Cedar Rapids, Grand Secretary; and the Rev. F. J. Clark. Melvin Miner gave a reading, and Mrs. A. E.

A list of the garments distributed and the families to which they went has been kept as a record. Antoinette Bonnstetter, school nurse in charge of the distribution was much pleased with the response and the work accomplished. In a report she says: "It was not unusual for representatives of families who came -for garments to go home and bring back garments their own children had outgrown in order to aid someone else, A number ateo offered their services to assist in the distribution.' 1 .... - ,..,..That the distribution; was not effected .without-.difficulties -is indicated in the report;': for MJss B.onhstetter/adde: "In a few instances the committee was justified in thinking that certain people had forgotten their less fortunate neighbors, only thinking of themselves," In conclusion Mies Bonnstetter says: "Several 'persons have reported that their garments had .not been called for. The school nurse Will call for these things next week, and will try to care for all requests that .have.been•«'made, 'We have been very busy, and the snow, has made ,it- difficult to use- a car.
