Those who use the New Water .Mill Flour say it is as good as tbe best and better than most of the sbipped-in flour, and we sell cheaper than the stores can sell imported goods. Better try our flour and learn that Algona and Kossuth county is not dependent on any foreign country for bread. JONES & STAGY. Horses Wanted.

BRADLEY & NIOOULIN. FVldajf evening eleven high school graduates greeted the public at the opera house, fhe stage had been beautifully dedorated with flowers and flags, & motto butsg above the speakers, music added Us charm, and ofae by one the eleven came gracefully forward and without miss or hesitatioti delivered production^ which would be creditable to much older and more experienced writers. ' The uniform excellence in delivery has never been surpassed by a preceding class, if indeed It has been equalled. Each'speaker was self*possessed, spoke clearly, slowly, and with full, round tones. As an exhibition of proficiency in public speaking we doubt if any graduating exercises In Iowa have excelled our own. An artistic piano duet by Mrs. Call and Miss Randall was followed by four orations. Geo. Patterson gave an excellent sketch of the growth of republics, Claude Nicoultn pictured the growing evils of monopoly and the eagerness to make money, David Dormoy defended the organization of labor, and Frank Howard summed up the Issues and results of the recent China-Japan war. A delightfully rendered vocal solo by A. L. Rist proceeded the next four. Mary Williams had a spirited and just defense of the west, Edith Walker sketched a few of the less known poets, May Johnson spoke of men and women whose peculiar ideas have influenced the world, and Belle Tellier gave a vivid sketch of the career of St. Paul. Geo. Hamilton and Fred Fuller gave a pleasing duet to introduce the final section. Nell Wallace told how the world insists on cash on delivery, Elma Ramsey proved that the end of life is but the sequel to the beginning and that the beginning must be right, and Claire Gilbert closed the program with an interesting and well rendered class prophecy. At the close Prof. Dixson presented the class to the board, and President Clarke with some sensible advice in a colloquial manner, distributed the white papers and blue ribbons, insignia of the occasion. A much appreciated vocal trio by Misses Maud Cowan, Maggie Haggard, and Lillie Ranks concluded the exercises, which were enjoyed by a ci'owded house. Tomorrow Evenlne's Program. Dr. Beardshear's address will be the feature of the normal school commencement which occurs tomorrow evening at the opera house. He is an able and talented speaker. A piano solo by Lizzie Wallace, vocal solo by A. L. Rist, and vocal solo by Lillie Ranks will enliven the program. The normal school graduates 12 students, Will Galbraith and Howard Wallace in the scientificdepartment; Frances Kriethe, Helen Eddy, Olive Salisbury and Bessie Dodge in the normal department; Will E. Kain, Berton E. Norton, Berton E. Johnson, J. L. Wilkinson, R. J. Wilson, and John M. Stone in the commercial department. Prof. Johnson will address the graduates and Prof. Lilly will award diplomas. Baccalaureate Sermon. Sunday morning the normal graduates and faculty occupied reserved seats in the Congregational church and listened to a baccalaureate sermon by Rev. W. E. Davidson, The theme of the discourse was that all wise men accept masters. The master for all to accept is Christ. It was an able and interesting sermon and was 'listened to by a large audience.
