Pheasants are numerous in the Ingham Tells of Pioneer Pastor Who Settled Here & Founded Cong'I Church BY HARVEY INGHAM (Dictated to an Advance Reporter) Father Taylor was one of the most remarkable men that ever lived. Past 51, his children grown, this patriarch, who had spent his previous life in New England, was stricken with the zeal to come west and save the world. He came to Des Moines, then walked to Fort Dodge, where he had intended to stop. But things didn't look right for him there. He heard of Algona, the most distant outpost al the time, so he walked on to Algona. Here he met "Lewis H. Smith, busily surveying the town site. He had supper that night with Judge Call, and next night there was a town meeting, with 15 or 20 persons there. Father Taylor then decided to settle here and work for the rest of his life. He sent for his daughter. He had intended to start a college, and he brought two refined New England women to teach. But the Methodists took the college away from him, establishing their own here. He was proud of his garden; he introduced grapes and other fruits new to the country. After he quit the pulpit here, he traveled all over the county, attending meetings in the little villages that were springing up. At the last plans were made to give him an, anaesthetic, to ease his pain, but he refused to let anyone do so. He wanted, as long as he lived, to converse and do the Lord's work, even to the last minute of his life. He was instrumental in getting the town hall built as a place to hold services. He started it, and then, when it was built, he bought up all the shares and converted it into the first Congregational church. That building is still here, having been incorporated into the building which now houses the Norton Machine works. SPENCER TO GOME FOR GAME SUNDAY The Aflgbna Independents w$l play the Spencer Merchants at Athletic park here next Sunday afternoon at 2:30. The game is touted as the greatest semi-professional game in north Iowa this season. - Spencer has a strong team this season, having in the backfield four former state university players. Playing with 'Spencer will be Warrington, OBstherville, one of the Iowa stars in 1930, and Coach Voges, of Sutherland. Playing with the Algona Independents now are Gableson, all-conference halfback at Cornell college, and Barrier, who played with the Fort .Dodge Junior college team. Both live at Humboldt. Coach Mercer is also expected to play. The Independents were defeated, northwest part of the district, but are not over .plentiful in the rest of the district, hence the division into six and four day periods respectively.
