SIX CONG1 CHURCH FOUNDED BY 3 WOMEN, 2 MEN Mother of Algonian Was One of the First Five. Plans for the celebration of the Congregational church's 75th anniversary this week-end inspired much thumbing of the pages of Algona and Kossuth histories to refresh local memories of events of those early days. Of the charter members of the Congregational church when it was organized in August, 1S5S, only one descendant In'now living here, Mrs. Wm. K. Ferguson, daughter of Mrs. Eugenia Rist-Smith, one of the five charter members. Mrs Ferguson has a keen interest in the history of Algona and Kossuth, a heritage, no doubt, of the pioneer tales she was accustomed to hear as a girl from her mother and her father, "Uncle" Lewis H. Smith. To keep aliv e that interest in lo- caJ history, she keeps a large scrap book of clippings and manuscripts. Among them are many relating to iher mother, who died in 1909. When Father Taylor Came. "If we had only known enough," •Said Mrs. Smith later, "to build our •cabin back in the woods, where we might have dug into the side hill, K088PTU cocmr ADVANCE.

That was in 1858." An Ardent Church Worker. An Advance story at the time o Sirs, smith's death in 1909 said: "Father Taylor, his head white a almond blossoms, h e of the mild grey eye, gentle voice, alert motion and unbent form, had joined the set tiers that year, but non e was mor active in his assistance than Mrs Smith. "Through many years Mrs. Smitl has labored in the church and in the society .In no other institution die sho take such deep interest as in its welfare. She was a constant at t«ndant through adversity and pro:- perity." Fourth of July Incident. Mrs. Smith often recalled, too_ th social life of the times: "This social life in which, the church played a cons.'derable part brought pioneers together more clo sely than is possible as we live to day. In a grove near the Free Meth odist church was a. favorable picnic ground, and one Fourth of July celebration held there was always ; source of enjoyment afterwards." "The settlers hail gathered and spread their lunch under the oaks The women, men and children went to town to join in the procession urn march back to the grounds. As tride a large horse rode the mar.sha. of the parade, bedecked in a great .scarlet scarf which streamed behind Shim as he galloped up and down the ilne, shouting cammands from his horse.

The day was too warm for football, which may account for the lack of drive on "the part of both teams. Coach Kenneth Mercer tore off good runs, and Spencer took a few long jaunts,« but neither" team was able to push the ball over. Spencer drove down the field in the final period, worked the ball to the 15- yd. line, and on the fourth down drop-kicked a field goal for the only score. Mercer nearly got away for a touchdown a few plays later, when he received a punt on his own one- yard line and raced back 45 yards. He was then nabbed 'by the Spencer safety man. With a little more blocking on the part- of the other Algonians, he would have got the touchdown. In the first quarter Algona worked the ball deep into Spencer territory with passes and runs of 25 and ten yards by Mercer. Algona was then held on the 15-yd. line, and a place-.kick too wide and too low failed. Algona tried numerous passes in the third and 'last quarters, but none connected for long gains. The passer was often nailed behind the line before he could get rid of the •ball, tacklers seeping through the Algona defense. testimony and. the lists of contributors showed that men and women in all walks of life had contributed sums ranging from a dollar up.
