District Christian Endeavor—The High School Commencement—The '' Normal School. Algona will celebrate. And Algona will give the public pointers on how a celebration should be .conducted. Already $350 have been raised and the other $160 is in sight for a strictly free entertainment. The speaking, music, greased pig, and egg races, will all be open to public inspection without cost. In the evening the heavens . will be illuminated with fire works, and in the afternoon a base ball contest will be for all. All this was decided at the final meeting at which the following committees were named: Decoration and parade— Durdall. Speaker and grounds— Starr. Amusements— Patterson. Finances — Brownell. Music— Finnell. Fire works— Gilmore. ' • Programme— Jones. Printing— Starr and Finnell. One vote was taken on races but that settled it that no races would be a part of the programme. Mr. Starr is corresponding with such speakers as Congressmen Cousins, Lacey, Conger, etc., for an orator, Mr, Finnell expects all the bands in this part of the state for music, and the display of fireworks will be the best ever seen in Algona. Altogether the prospects for a great celebration are excellent. Let everybody plan to attend. . The District Christian Endeavor.
