NON-MEMBERS OF GOLF CLUB TO BE KEPT OFF COURSE A new 'rule made'-effective this year by the 'Algona' Country club directors prevents non-member residents of Algona from using the golf course on payment of greens fees. In previous years Algonlans have been allowed to play on Invitation of a member by paying $1 as a greens fee per day. This wae definitely ended by the board's action, and the only way in which Algonlans may play is by joining.the club. To allow boys under.21 years of age to play the board instituted a junior membership for ttiis • year, with the membership fee ,at $10. This applies only to boys under 21 years.old during the year. Girls have had a like privilege, for several years under the associate .membership^ provision • with. dues at a -like amount. . Junior memberships, however, are restricted in the use of the tennis courts, and cannot uee the courts after ,4 o'clock in the 'afternoon,.; This provision reserves the use*of'the courts for members paying higher dues, allowing them unhampered play after 4 p. m.

C. Dewel. llfABASHA, Minn., May 16—This »*' old town of 2500'Inhabitants, on the Mississippi 85 miles southeast of St. Paul could supply . the setting for a novel. The rugged scenery for a realistic descriptive, background is ihere,- ah'd. if the -story-Jdeaif with an outlaw band there are innumerable hideouts In a wilderness of forest- covered bluffs. Besides, there Is the age-old river, Itself suggestive of romance, and behind it all the dim' history of the original inhabitants, the Indians, after one of whose chiefs the town was named. Aeons ago, the river cut a great valley, which at thla point is three or four miles wide. On each side it left great bluffs .which rise hurt' dreds of feet to the hinterland beyond. Other streams and torrents of rain created adjacent valleys, the whole now densely forested. Much of this wild, untamed wilderness Is uninhabited, but wherever there Is a clearing it Is farmed. From the winding roads .the traveler at this season sees men and teams toiling on the slopes and preparing the ground for crops. The dreamy-background of wooded hills, supplies an ever-entrancing spectacle. In the fall, after Jack Frost has painted the leaves a golden yellow, the valley is a riot of color to which only a 'poet could do justice. River ; Formg 30 M«e Lake. Just above Wabaeha Is Lake Pep- In (pronounced as if there • were two."p's"). This Is really not a lake at all; but a wldenlng-out of the river.' It is 30 miles long and extends to Red Wing. Down the river the other way Js Winona, and beyond 'that, on the Wisconsin side, miles southwest Rochester. The To Speak Here •'I: La Crosse.. Forty of Wabasha is Mayos keep a beautifully appointed yacht here, and in season use it frequently for river jaunts. The ship is, manned by captain and crew air ways on duty. ' The river Is no longer the great artery «f commerce of a hundred years ago, but it is still used. Freight steamers make regular trips in • .the summer time, and it is sight for the. inlander to see them pushing great barges with ; . or against the current. JThe government maintains guide bouys to block out the safest path and along the bank there are lights at night. .In .Mark Twain's day '-there .was none of this, and river pilots" almply had to know the everchanglng way. There is an absorbing, tale of the education of a pilot In-one of Mark Twain's books, and It Is largely.au- tobiographical, for Mark himself, at one stage of_hls career, was a pilot. The river also cuts a large figure in Tom Sawyer and other Twain books. Finds Changee hi Seven Yean. When I, was here before, seve years ago, Wabasha was practically cut off from the Wisconsin side of the river. There was a ferry, and on the other side a winding, 'unimproved road led to the first town, three mile away. But the road was often under water and In winter the ferry could not operate.. Thus traveler* could never know In advance whether they could cross here, and there was little ^Interstate communication, This condition has ; been changed, and today the river Is spanned by a noble bridge 'which rises 55 feet above the high water mark. The building of this bridge was a great chapter in Wabaeha; history The bridge and a three.-mlle 'graveled causeway to the other/side of the river involved an expenditure of $'5'50,QO<>,:and it, is,a remarkable fact that the money; except |280i.OOO' for which bonds were floated, was prac- T HIS IS William de Cook Buning, of The Hague, the Netherlands, who ;will speak at the celebration of he 10th anniversary of the tfharter- ng of; the Algona Rotary club.

Thia is because paving is affording safe and easy travel for the tourist who seeks a picturesque countryside in a veritable Switzerland of America.
