It is a matter of ho little surprise that such an eminent man as t). R. Augsburg of Salt Lake City could be secured to do service at this place. Those of our readers who have read the various educational periodicals during the past two years are already fully acquainted with the line of art work that has given him such notoriety. His work—drawing simplified—is already in the hands of many of our teachers. We are always glad to meet our old time.friend, Prof. Gilchrist, who is given a prominent position at the head of the list of instructors. Algoua will welcome him and enjoy his presence during the period of his engagement. Our citizens will remember the commendable work done at a previous session by Mrs. Lucia Gale Barber, who also finds a place in this year's interesting program. Her evening entertainment was regarded as one of the best of the course. We understand that she has the honor of giving the closing attraction with one of her popular pos- ings. . Of the remaining instructors, Profs, Rich and Young, it is only necessary to say that no better proof of their fitness need be urged.than the fact that after careful deliberation they have been retained to complete the list of those who are to take charge of our educational forces during the first three weeks in August. • We shall have occasion later to speak of the lectures and otherinterestingfeat- ures connected with the management. Instructors have always claimed that it is an easy matter to do work in this county because Superintendent Reed assumes the exclusive control himself, and has all the work planned ready for action before the assembly convenes. Lecturers likewise daem it fortunate to appear in the course for they are always sure of a large audience. Mr. Reed seems to possess a special fitness and an adaptability for organizing and controling large bodies of teachers in these summer institutes.

A aa WJ> A. f\ , Iowa, , Painter and Emmetsburg Reporter: It has been several years since Algona celebrated the natal day of the nation, but it seems that the fire of patriotism has been smouldering all these years, and, last Thursday it burst forth in a great blaze of patriotism and glory. It was a magnificent and model celebration in every respect. A vast crowd, free from drunkenness or disorder of any kind; a splendid program well carried out, and an eloquent and patriotic address, together with faultless weather, all tended to make the day a memorable one in the history of the city. The industrial parade was the great .feature of the day, and for size, uniqueness of design, taste displayed by the participants, and beauty of decorations, we have never seen it equaled. This parade consisted of sixty floats, besides the fire company, a company of bicyclers and the three bands. The oration was delivered by Victor Dolliver, who held the attention of the vast crowd from the beginning to the end of it. It was a magnificent effort, and those who heard it were lifted into higher, nobler and loftier thoughts of patriotism. It was in such pleasing contrast to the tale of woe that we listened to last year that we were more than pleased with it. The evening entertainment of living pictures, shown by colored lights, was very pleasing and attractive. It must have required a great deal of work and ingenuity to get up the tableaux and properly display them. The entire day's proceedings were a grand success, and the citizens of Algona have every reason to feel proud of their 4th of July demonstration, Armstrong Journal: Algona has reason to feel proud of the celebration July 4, We were told that Algona never had a good celebration, but we vouch for the fact that such statements are no longer true and we • doubt if they ever were, 'The industrial parade in the morning was considered by all present the best they ever saw, Nearly every business house in Algona was represented and the procession was eight blocks long, Considerable mom ey and labor had beep expended by each business represented to make $he display they bad, Three bands were in the procession and furnished music for the thousands of spectators, Base ball and horse racing entertained the people in the afternoon. The ball game was easily won by the Algona nine, The entertainment on the court house square in the evening was unique and was well received by the people as applause followed each scene, The crpwd was immense, but ail wer§ amused, well provided for ana every thing as orderly as if it was an ev^ry day ooeurance for the town to take, care of.10,000 visitors.

All the various features of the list are worthy of study, but the new race program will first catch the eye of those who come for amusement.

Patterson Is Arrested In Wesley for n Crime Committed Over a Tear ABO. Down in Johnson county over a year ago a load of wool was stolen from a farmer's barn , and the thief escaped without detection. All trace of him was lost. Not long ago the authorities th ere tracked one Lew Hoffman, wanted for seduction, etc., at Iowa 'City, to Algona, and while looking for him 1 located Wm. Patterson the wool gatherer on a farm In Wesley township. Sheriff Samson was instrumental in assisting the Johnson county authorities, and last week went out and gathered in Mr, Patterson at the Schultz farm, where he was staying. The sheriff of Johnson county came at once and Monday evening left Algona With his man. This illustrates the old school motto: "Be sure your crime will find you out." ttlcfrde Rates f hht £I*s frettf of ft Ofeftt fltBe at.tfag Cottftty DONT FORGET TAYLOR cfOwd at the faif groUni SatttP * was hot at all what 'the merit of the Sports Warranted. ChRs. Smith put up the bicycle prices offefed ott the Fourth, and some good speed was de* veloped by our. home talent, besides which a ball game between Algona and Whittemore was played. The speed and number of entries among the bicyclers gives promise of a food after* noon's sport when the county fair gold badges are put Up again. In the five-mile face the winners were! Jesse Stephehson first* bicycle suit; Alex. Dorweiler second, search tight; Merrill Call third, sweater.

NIOK MOUSEL PAYS UP, His Beer IB Spilled and Ho IB Out of Pockot$272.Sr>— Has Enough of the Business. The big load of Germahia beer was judicially passed upon last Thursday by Justice Clark, and soon after went to moisten Mat's lawn. Nick Mousel, who brought It in and who was twice caught for dispensing it, came down to make amends to the blind eyed goddess of justice and pay up. Two counts were laid up against him, and his fines were $]00 on each, with costs of trying the beer, etc., of $72.25. He counted out the first $100 and with beads of sweat standing out he inquired if that wouldn'nt do. 'Squire Clarke said no. Then he counted out the other $100 and with much more intensity of feeling asked if the costs couldn't be thrown off. Then 'Squire Clarke read him a little lecture to the effect that after he had been caught once he had gone back contrary to law and good advice and gone to selling again. Any sympathy for him would be wasted and the fines and the costs to the last penny must come. Then the last $72.25 was dragged out, and the young man departed sadder and wiser.
