GEO, H. CARR, , JuSgeof the Fourteenth Judicial District of jowa, 10t8 The bureau of education at Washington, ttt a series edited by Herbert B< Adams, entitled "Contributions to American Educational History," has published a Volume by Prof. L. F, Parker of Iowa college on "Higher Education in Iowa." It contains a full page cut of the Algona normal school, and to accompany It Prof. Parker, who was an acquaintance of Father Taylor's in the early days, has written the following sketch; . Algona is one of those happy Iowa towns where education and character have always been popular. The first county superintendent of Kossuth county (now affectionately remembered as " Father Taylor") Was a citizen of Algona, and walked a large part of 200 miles to attend the first meeting of county superintendents in 1858, and, in that convention, was warmly cheered for his educational spirit. Through his influence Miss Lucy Leonard, a cultured woman from Potsdam, N. Y., rendered memorable service in the public schools of Algona during 1866-68, and was followed by Miss M. Helen Wooster, who was soon chosen county superintendent. Miss Wooster erected a school building and boarding house and maintained a private school two years, but was then Induced to become a teacher in Algona College, which had been incorporated in 1870; A few years later she took charge of Adams Collegiate Institute, N. Y., and is now teaching in Los Angeles, Cal. For a time Algona College was under the direction of Prof. O. H. Baker, and through his efforts and those of others it became "the pride and hope of Algona citizens and also of northwestern Iowa." But continued college life.4emanded something more tangible and perhaps more sordid than pride and hope, and that something was not then very abundant on the plains of the northwest. Although the college was closed educational aspirations did not cease. They assumed a new direction. Algona desired to have a normal school in 1886. Principal Gilchrist had acquired high honor by his work at Cedar Falls as a teacher, a superintendent, a solicitor of funds from the legislature and from citizens, and even as an architect, qualities of the highest importance in laying foundations. He was seen to be available; " was invited to Algona, and opened the Northern i'owa Normal school at that place, Sept. 14, 1886. In 1887 the school district erected a building for the normal school. The courses of study were named didactic, scientific, and didactic Latin, extending through four years. Three years of Latin were provided for in the didactic Latin course, but made elective with German. The public schools of Algona were opened to the normal students for observation, and furnished them with classes for personal instruction. Two students .graduated in 1887, eight in 1888, and seven in 1889. The legislature seemed almost, but not altogether, ready in 1890 to _ grunt Algona the state normal school it had so long sought. Prof. Gilchrist was lured away to the new Methodist university at Sioux City, and Prof. P. D. Dodge of Berea, Ky., accepted the chair which was thus vacated. Ill'health renewed the vacancy, and Prof. McCullom became principal of the school in 1801. Little effort is now made to enlarge the institution. It is maintained as a magnet and as a nucleus for the normal school which it is still hoped that the state will soon locate there. noted for his whirling and' foolishness.

A LARGER assortment of canned goods tjian ever at the Opera House Grocery, About "SI Plunkard," As the dramatic reporter of THE UPPER DES MOINES missed "Si's" visit to Algona he clips Chas. Monger's graphic review of "Si's" appearance at Anamosa; The play of " Si Plunkard," placed upon the boards of the Grand Opera house, Tuesday night, is a coarse-grained plagiarism. It is part minstrel show and part circus ring, It is a mixture of gravity and horse humor. Most of the jokes imbedded in it are encrusted with two feet of chestnut mould and numbers of them are rusty puns turned stomach-side out, " Si Plunkard" is a barn-storming play. A dozen old plays have been robbed to give *' Si" an appearance on the stage, It is a patchwork quilt with the seams poorly concealed, A dozen toil-worn play-wrights have a plain case of grand larceny against the fellow who out and slashed and made havoc and plunder of the product of other men's brains to pin apd glue together " Si Plunkard. " Apd yet the audience laughed at the unconscionable nonsense and fraud, The humor of it was as deljcate as a bear hugging a telephone pole, All the merit there wtr in the entertainment was the music. The songs with whistling choruses were immense, The cast of the play was weak. "Si Pluukard" is a portrayal of (arm life.
