He would have known that the spirit of liberty still flourishes, and that local enterprise has plenty of get upland get there When it is aroused. He tfould have heard all the ringing of bells in the stilly hours 1 of night, which his drowsy ears would have hungered for, and all the firing of cannon at early dawn, which he would have thought necessary to announce that the glorious morning of liberty hud arrived. He would have seen the red, white and blue in a profusion to bewilder his provincial.gaze, and a display of the products of a century's mechanical ingenuity which would have dazed and stupefied his senses. He would have decided that Algona was some haunt of Alladin and his lamp, and have gone back to his grave satisfied that the fathers were beginning an undertaking of far greater magnitude than they dreamed of when they resolved to "live or die, survive or perish" and signed their names to the document Samuel Mayne so ably and distinctly read. Whether John Adams and other disembodied spirits of our glorious ancestry really did fill the air and cause the genial and often praised cloud film which shut out a roasting July sun is only a matter of conjecture. The presence of the descendants of these worthy sires in a sweating multitude on the ground is not so speculative. Twelve thousand of them at a conservative estimate filled the streets when the industrial parade passed, and followed to the grove to listen to the oft repeated story of another century. As Victor P. Dolliver arose he met an audience which might rejoice any orator and which taxed his powerful voice to its utmost. At the ball ground, at the races, on the streets, in the opera house, on the court yard for the concert and tableux,. everywhere there were crowds. Algona for once was full of people, and for once entertained them all to their hearts' content. The parade preceded the gathering at the grove. Here the program opened with band music, an invocation by E. P. McElroy, readin? of the declaration by Samuel Mayne and songs by the glee club. The feature was Mr. Dolllver's oration, appropriate to the occasion, patriotic, eloquently delivered, and attentively listened to. With much of his brother's voice and manner, Mr. Dolliver held the entire audience and gave the best Fourth of July address ever heard in Algona. He was applauded and congratulated by all. • THE INDUSTRIAL PARADE. By far the finest single feature of the program was the morning parade. It has never been surpassed in Iowa. Those who have seen the corn palace parades at Sioux city and the Sent- Om-Sed at Des Moines saw as fine individual floats at Algona as at either, and had ours been at night, brilliantly lighted, the affect of the whole would have been as startling as at either. Although the various features were crowded together in the line, the procession was so much longer than bad been figured on that new routes had to be laid out at the last minute and even then not room enough was had to prop 3rly conduct the march. At the head of the procession the Algona band rode in the new wagon prepared by C. J. Brown for the occasion, drawn by four handsome blacks. Following them in substantially the order named came the different floats: Grand army post, a soldiers' tent with full equipment, followed by the brass cannon. Handsomely decorated float with girls representing the states, each bearing a banner with her state's coat of arms. E, J, Gilmore's grocery display, a very complete exhibit.

Hugh Hedrlck was in the procession, a veritable Uncle Sam riding a cart, The fire company in" their new uniforms drew the hose cart, the Burt band rode in a wagon, making three bands for music, a stranger added a double nosed cow to the line, and dozens of features no report can do justice to enlivened the scene, It was an elaborate, expensive, and handsome display, one that has never been seen before in these parts, and one that has never been seen by many who have not attended the biggest carnivals and fairs. The cost vflfs over $1,000 to the business men who participated. The Day's Amusements, Owing to the rather strong. wind all day no attempt was made at a balloon ascension, although the balloon was ready. The ball game between the Algona and Bancroft nines filled in a large part of the afternoon and was witnessed by a big part of the crowd in town. It was rather one sided, Al* gona winning by six to twenty-eight. Following the game the street races came off west of the the court house. In the bicycle race F. A. Wartman won first, Ed, Richardson second. In the man's foot race Quick won first, Art, Allen second. In the boy's race MoMurray won first, Z, C." Coffen second. The greased pole furnished lots of sport. Oscar Carpenter of Bancroft made several heroic efforts to reach the top and so did a half dozen others amid the encouraging shouts of the crowd, but Andrew Norwood finally captured the money by getting to the top. For an hour-after that Prof. ICubn" gave a slack wire exhibition, THE EVENING CONCERT. After supper the court yard filled with a mass of people, For two hours the Emmetsburg, Burt and A'.gona b^nds gave a concert, and then on the raised platform, especially arranged some handsome tablewx were put on, They were lighted with colored, Jigftts and one of the fittest features of /vbe day's program,. No pains had been spared to make them perfect and, the el-pwd sheered vociferously. Puring the eyenieg a, few. roekets and SPWI |re,works were, displayed from, the top Wai gpjBBt Joi' Ik flrewprVs Good crowds Were at the fair ground Wednesday and Thursday for the ruh* hing races, and saw some speedy horses. The fact that the speediest, and that by far, are owfted here in the county did not diminish local enthusiasm. Ida M,J the fast mare from Gerfflania, surprised everybody, while Gildersleeve, B.Fi Smith's hew horse, & full brother of Ida M., showed his heels to the field in the only race he was in, andltossuth, lame as he was, kept along with the procession, taking second money Wednesday. Koasuth's racing days are about over, but he is as handsome and spirited as though the tendons in his front legs had never been strained. The first race Wednesday was the three-eighths of a mile and repeat. The entries were Jack Diver, White Stockings, and Grover of Bancroft, Daniel Boono of Algona. Diver won easily, the real race being between Daniel Boone and Grover for third money. The score was: Jack Diver, W. B, SealooU... •....•! 1 White Stockings, 0. F. Hlgley 42 Bn,iiiol Boone, John Edwards 2 d • trover, 0. Boetsoher • d * •.Vime, 39, 30. The second race was the one which brought.out the fast horses. Much was expected of Starlight, a racer from Indiana, but he was held up the first heat and with the field got the distance flag. It was three-fourths 01 a mil* and repeat, and with a bad start Glldersleeve led the field, Kossuth soon taking second. Both horses held their places and the four trailers failed to come within 75 feet and were not allowed to start again. This spoiled the race for the crowd. But Gildersleeve's fine running was cheered and Ben. Smith was congratulated by everybody. The score was: Glldersleeve, B. F.

Ida M. was booked to win at the half-mile and to crowd the horses at the mile, but her owners never hoped to have her win at the mile and a half. She is a half-mile runner, with the state record, but she won all three moneys easily, finishing at the mile and a half fresher than any horse in the race. Kossuth was lame and could not make a good race, Starlight was lame and was not put in. The other horses could not crowd Ida M. at all. She made the half-mile in 52*, the mile in l:61i, and the mile and ahalf in 2:52*. Columbus, Irish Boy, Kokomo, and Kossuth ran. Irish Boy ran a good race but he was too slow. , , i Ida M.'s victory, here spoiled the best race of the program. She and Gildersleeve and Jack Diver were on for a half-mile and repeat, which would have been .a hot contest, but her owner would not run her again that day and the race was dropped, C. A, Smith to entertain the crowd drove Bel ton an exhibition mile trot, Harvey Wadsworth pacing him with his riding horse. He went without a break in 2:30J and was loudly applauded. ' The bicycle races did not fill and the afternoon program closed with the farm pony race in which John Edwards' Daniel Boone, L. L. Salisbury's Prince, and H. Norton's Chub were entered, Prince won, Daniel Boone second. Are now in ofdef at- TAYLOR'S.
