The first game, at 10:30 in the morning, will be between the Burt and Renwick Junior league teams, iBurt has already earned an enviable reputation in baseball, and Renwick has (been making a similar record.

All these events are new to hippodrome platforms, and the artists bring with them new stunts and tricks.

At Floral hall the customary evening dance will be held, with the Harmony Kings, radio and en- .tertaining orchestra, furnishing music. The floor Is being rewaxed for the occasion. Children under ten years old will be admitted free both afternoon A strong "•bull" market has brought Algona quotations for agricultural products up sharply from last week's .prices. Both yellow and white corn are. up a nickel to 37c and 38c, and oats skyrocketed up 10c over last week's market to 34c. On the Chicago board wheat went over the dollar mark Tuesday for the first time since 1930. 'Local experts view these markets with alarm, contending they are too high, even at yesterday's close, which was from four to six cents off the highs of Tuesday. Algona grain offices were crowded Monday and Tuesday with speculators, but yesterday the story was different, with operators calling for more margin. No. 1 eggs are up 2c over last week's quotation to 12c and the No. 2 grade has risen a cent to reach 7c. Cash cream Is up a cent to '21c. The market is believed in unhealthy condition because of heavy buying orders by public. 'Rains west of the Missouri river are now having a bearish effect Heavy profit-taking at the close of the high market Tuesday and stop- loss sales yesterday helped bring down the price level. It has been reported that the Washington administration is fearful of speculative markets and desires to see only a slow, steady rise. September options on wheat closed last night at 92%c, six cents off Tuesday's high of 98 7-8c. September corn closed at 56 3-8c, four cents off Tuesday's 46%c.
