Commends Pioneer Courage. When I think o£ what seventy- ivo years must have meant in the nfluences exerted for good,, and of low far the influences must have spread, I not only sincerely applaud the courage of the pioneers who started the, work, but I heartily commend the courage of thos,e fine souls who have kept it going. I am proud and happy to think that for a little time I had a small )art in the work of the church :here. I am sure that working for the church did me more good than anyone else; but we will let that pass, for I did not think of that phase of it at the time when it was my good fortune to be associated with those grand people who made up the congregation 20 years ago. Story of a Rose. When I was helping enthusiastically the little handful that made up the Christian Endeavorers, Mrs. 0. H. Holmes once handed me a lit- the clipping entitled "The Other Side of the Wall," about a rose which, planted near a wall, seemed to be yielding but small return in blossoms and foliage for the work expended on its roots. But the gardener happened to be one day on the other side of the wall, where he found that a branch of the rose bush, having worked its way under the wall, was flourishing and blossoming beautifully on the other side, a sorry place but one where its gorgeous blooms were much more of a blessing. Mrs. Holmes told me that the work of the Christian Endeavor seemed like that to 'her—that somewhere, somehow, that work would bear fruit. So I, in turn,, urge you to go on, prospering where ,and when you can, but working faithfully anyhow, confident that your every effort will be worth while. Tribute to Algona. In fact, one thing that the young people of the church, and of the :own of Algona, should realize is that in growing up in such a place, and in being able to be a part of :he activities of such a town, they are singularly fortunate. Yet perhaps thej' no longer mourn that Algona is a "dead place," where nothing much happens,.as some did long ago; perhaps no one thinks now that there would be better chan. ces in a bigger place far away. If any do, let me assure them that Algona, settled long ago by the very cream o£ New England, is more like old New England, today than New England itself, in cul ture and outlook. I have lived there and I know. Thei-e is nowhere in the world, unless Algona has chang ed a lot, a better place to grow up nowhere are the influences more calculated to make worth while ci tizens. Memories of Long Ago. And you grown-ups, you never know when you are going to say 01 do something that will live forevei in the heart of some young person I recall to this day a story the Rev. Mr. Suckow told at an evening prayer meeting; also something Hoi- tense Smith Ferguson once said In Christian Endeavor; I remember An drew Peterson's devotion, and the steadfast work of the Wards. I re member how Mrs. C. O. Simpson always seemed to my young eyes as she sat in church so fastidiously and so carefully gowned, almost the last word on what a lady ought to be. And I thrill yet when r think, of the pleasant odors tha,t came fron the kitchen on church supper nights, and of the comfortable bust ling of the women as (they hurried about. All trivial maybe, and then a gain maybe such happy influences were as potent as they now seem ti me. A Girl of Long Ago. I remember too, the unimportan little girl who used to stand up an< testify, in a high quavering voice in Christian Endeavor; and if. as I am told, I now have often an au dlence'of 400,000 and if sometime I say something that one of the 400,000, remembers, it could easiry be because of what I carried away from Algona. Indeed I could swea that it was. So I thank all the dear old ai new workers for the church, and wish all of you many more years o prosperous increase.
