Prof. Lilly Now Has Sole Charge— ' Prof. Johnson Eetires and May Go to Hartford, Conn. The Graduating Exercises Last Thursday Evening—An Able Address by Dr. Beardshe'ar. Algoha's big celebration conies next week Thursday, lf& genial but toot heeded showe? does not hit it, it will be memorable in the annals df northern towa. But THE UPPER DES MOINES, in View of the criticisms passed on Algona's last effort to let the eagle out, hopes everybody who comes will fix firmly la mind what he is to expect and then Hot be disappointed. The citizens have through their committees secured Victor B, Dolliver to speak, have spent over $200 for band music, have arranged for a ball game between the Algona and Bancroft nines, will send up a balloon with man attachment, and will entertain in the evening with a band concert, some illuminations, statuary, etc. All this and the big parade will be as free as the sunshine everybody expects on that day. But on the other hand the citizens and their committees have nothing to do with any number of other attractions which will not be free. Chas. Smith is is giving a race program at the fair grounds which will cost 26 cents for all over 12 years of age to see, the fire company will give a bowery dance with the usual price attached to the tickets, the opera house company is planning to give a theatrical entertainment, and lemonade stands will abound. Our visitors will have innumerable chances to invest their cash, but if after they get home they decide that the lemonade was not up to Fourth of July grade it will not be justly chargeble to the celebration committees. THE UPPER DES MOINES hopes that everything will be worth twice what it costs; even to the lemonade, but Algona does not guarantee anything except what it advertises, and it advises everybody to not invest in anything until he is sure he wants it, and that it is exactly what he wants. Then he will have nobody to blame but himself if it is not worth what it costs. and refutation cftpS has to§%ft tffdef-ecl, and the boys will fmf&de ifi th§ »6% 1B* and ffiake & run with th§ hotS eftft and wagons in the afterfiotiB.

Matson & McCall- The summer term of the normal school opened Monday with an enrollment to start, with of 20 and with a prospective attendance of 70. It also opened under the sole charge of Prof. Lilly, who has bought Prof. Johnson's interest. Prof. Johnson remains for the summer term .and will then leave THE INDUSTRIAL PARADE. O. B.

Prof. Lilly has since coming to Algona gained the reputation of being a very thorough instructor and a, careful manager, and the school is now in better financial condition than ever before in its history. He will make several additions during the summer, notably a library, and will begin the coming school year with as good facilities as are offered in much more pretentious schools. Miss Waters and Miss Zellhofer will return, and a .new instructor will take Prof. Johnson's place. The school is gaining recognition abroad and Dr. Beardshear, while here, after fully examining the quality of work required, announced to the students that they would receive credit at Ames for all studies for which they had Prof. Lilly's certificate., NORMAL SCHOOL COMMENCEMENT. The opera house was comfortably filled Thursday evening for the graduating exercises of the school, which consisted mainly of ,an inspiring address from Dr. Beardshear. The stage bad been as handsomely decorated as it ever has been, a rustic fountain playing in the center of a bank of ferns, and the sides bearing flowers and ferns. Overhead hung the class motto. The music was by our best home talent, Prof, Johnson's address to the graduates was excellent, and Prof. Lilly delivered the diplomas 'with appropriate remarks. Dr. Beardshear took for his text, "A Good Start," and discussed broadly the problem of life. His address was full of excellent suggestions, was pointed in style, and the delivery was spirited. The doctor is more'than six feet up in the world with a wiry and sinewy frame, a restless and active air as of some one with business on hand, and came with a reputation well established as a successful president of the agricultural college, His address partpok of his own spirit, and his ideas of life and how to get on were a pre- septment of his own career, He spoke at the Christian Endeavor meeting the evening before, and the two addresses in Algopa were much enjoyed, Dlngley & Pugh—Jewelry.

Clarke- Many Elegant Presents. No more delightful wedding has been witnessed than that which united Miss Edith Clarke of this place and Mr. Franklin Williams of Erie, Pa., last. Wednesday at 3 o'clock. The spacious home of the bride's parents was beautifully decorated for the occasion, and at the appointed time the bride and groom, preceded by the bridesmaids and groomsmen, entered to the strains of Mendellsohn's wedding march and took their places under a festoon of smilax hung in the south alcove of the central parlor. Bev. Davidson performed the ceremony, which was a modification of the Episcopal service, and very pretty. Congratulations followed, which were hearty and sincere, after which a light repast was served in the dining room to the nearly one hundred guests present. The bridal couple took their departure for the east at 6 o'clock on the Milwaukee road, showers of rice and the conventional old shoe folio wing them to their carriage. After a trip of some weeks they will be at home at Erie, Pa. Miss Clarke was reared in Algona, and with the exception of her school days at Evanston university, has been a continuous resident here, where she is beloved and a most lovable young woman among a host of friends. The groom is a prosperous young business man. of Erie, Pa., and his brief visit to Algona left a decidedly favorable impression. THE UPPER DES MOINES joins their many friends in wishing them a joyous and successful career. The presents indicated in a large degree the high esteem in which the bride is held among her acquaintances, and were numerous and costly. It was not desired that a list of them should be published, but the reporter is at liberty to say that they included a deed to property near Chicago valued at $2,000, from the bride's father, and property at Erie, Pa., from the father of the groom, the value of which is said to be $4,000. Some of the guests from abroad w.ere Mr. and Mrs. Williams of Erie, parents of the groom; Mr. and Mrs. Miller of Chicago, sister and brother- in-law; Mr. and Mrs. J. L, Kamrar and daughter of Webster City; Mr. and Mrs. Estesand daughter of the same place, and 0. 0. St. Clair of Marshalltown. Preceding the ceremony the guests were delightfully entertained with a solo by Miss Kamrar, A harpist from Sioux City was present, and his selections were a source of pleasing entertainment during the afternoon. Mr, and Mrs. Williams Sr, and Mr. and Mra. Miller will remain for a few days, guests at the A. D. Clarke home.

E. held in Algona lust week was the largest gathering of the kind ever seen in this place. The young people of the local society had been looking forward and planning for the meeting for weeks, and the results were fully up to their expectations. While there is but one society in Algona of this name, denominational lines were swallowed up in hospitality, and the various churches yied with each other in making the ^visitors welcome. Promptly at 4 o'clock Tuesday afternoon the first meeting was called to order by President J. F, Hardin of Eldora, and the session was opened with prayer by Rev. Stevens of the Baptist church. About 65 visiting delegates were present at the opening, but they continued to arrive on every train until 150 were registered by Wednesday afternoon. The first session was devoted to the "whys" of the convention and to business. Tuesday evening came the first meeting of real interest to the public. It was opened by a song service and address of welcome and response, and then came the real feature of the day and almost of the convention, an address by Rev. Kinzer of the state association on "The Young Peoples' Crusade." He opened by showing that the word crusade originally meant "a war for the cross," and that the sewing of the cross on the garment was an emblem that the wearer had taken up the cause as his moving principle through life. The endeavor movement is the young peoples' crusade. Though organized but a few years ago with an advance guard of only 56 people and one society, the young people banded under the endeavor name alone now number two and one-half millions. From this number more than 500,000 have been added to the churches in the past four years. The needs of the day were live people working through a living church for a living Savior. A dead church in the speaker's thought was of no use and productive of no good. All who listened to this stirring address went away more firm in the resolve to be a live, active force in the world. Wednesday the sessions both forenoon and afternoon were occupied by papers and discussions of live endeavor topics. Several of these were of more than ordinary merit. The one which brought out the liveliest discussion was the address on social amusements, by Rev, C, P, Boardman of Humboldt. In, this discussion the idea brought out most prominently was that while some kinds of amusements might not. be harmful in themselves, that the estimation in which they were held and the breaking down of influences which their indulgence in by church members would cause, would warrant their classification, with smallpox, to be regarded as dangerous. If one paper might be selected from several good ones and said to be the best, in tbe judgment of the writer, it was the one of H. R. Core of Fort Podge on "Sou.1 Winning," In the speaker's thought, eternal love and everlasting willing- pess were the requisites fop soul wia* ping, Not merely an expressed willing*ness to help and. then bang back because the way ol sbpwing Jpye for a soul seemed insignificant or small, but a real willingness to do anything that would sapw me real'spirit of love for the Master.
