Everything was but the big trees still Algona of '50 years ago is pictured vividly in a letter from «.' W. iBurnard, Dayton, Ore., whose father was then pastor of the Algona Congregational church at which the letter was read in the anniversary services Sunday, November 5. "It was in the fall of 1875," he wrote, "that my tather took charge of the church, but the family did not_ arrive in Algona until the next spring, in time to see the last bad season of the grasshopper invasion. "At that time the old little church was in the business district and 1 was told that it was originally the town hall, and that at the time of the Indian uprising had been somewhat fortified as a safeguard against attack. A year or two later it was moved to a location across the street from the Baptist church in the same block with the new schoolhouse, and an addition erected. First Pipelcss Furnace. "When this was done my father contrived what amounted to the first pipeless furnace in Algona to heat the building, lit consisted o •e were .probably planted by my ndfather and uncles. .'he first I can remember of this ne was Just after the family had ed from a log house into a new ie house.

"1 acted as Janitor for the re modeled church building. Whil this heating plant usually worke nicely I remember one winter Sun ay following a mild blizzard when found this cold air pipe had ad- litted enough snow into the heat harniber and the stove to nearly 11 them, so I had to clean out the now. .Firing up being thus delay- the extreme cold Was modified ut not all dispelled in the church hat day. "The sermon that day was by a isiting evangelist of the old Hell Fire type. (Editor Al Hudson in ommenting on the sermon in his aper that week said the sermon vas a hot one but the temperature 'f the building was such that sug- ;ostion of a change of climate was ather agreeable."
