Votes cast Saturday were not counted till last week Wednesday night, and it was not till Thursday morning that Miss Eisenbarth knew that she had won the contest. The other winners, Miss Barry, Madonna Quinn, Jane Hemphill, and Rachel Clapsaddle, Burt, who placed in the order named, did not know till the hour of the parade What position they held. They ,had only been informed that they were among the coveted first five. Miss Eisenbarth rode in the Christmas parade as Miss Mary Christmas, piloted in iR. J. Harrington's open car.

Algona children, who held white tickets, were then admitted till every seat in the theater held at least one child. The children were pleased with the show. They whooped as their favorite child actors got into and out of difficulties. The show con- of shorts selected for children and were shown only at the free shows. Turkeys, Chickens Ilelcased. At 3:30 turkeys and chickens were tossed from the roof of the postoffice building to the crowd, which filled sidewalk, street, and courthouse square from the post- office west to the south walk from the courthouse and spread sideways to include almost a block. Traffic was blocked on both Thorington and State during this part of the program. The turkeys and chickens were good actors, the committee in charge having chosen birds accustomed to roosting in trees and would therefore fly well. Few of the chickens were able to fly farther than the sidewalk opposite •the postoffice. Two Brown iLeg- horns cackled their way ludicrously over the heads of the crowd and lit in the Christmas tree. .Small boys immediately climbed after them and caught one after the other had been frightened off into the crowd. One chicken landed in the space above the Call theater's electric sign and was there caught. Turkeys High Flyers. The five turkeys, which were furnished by Leslie Jenkins, were all good flyers. Four of them landed in the crowd near the bandstand, and one sailed over the crowd entirely. Two posses took after it, one around the south side of the courthouse, the other around the north side, and it was caught after a mad chase. The press of the crowd was such that it was not possible to learn who caught any of the birds SANTA GLAUS DAY PLEASES ALLJISITORS Outsiders Amazed to Find Such Crowds for Event.

Humboldt made 113 points against 85 for Algona and 84 for Webster City. Preliminaries Comment on Algona's Santa Glaus day 'Jias been surprisingly favorable. Visitors from all over Kossuth have expressed appreciation^ the parade, the broadcasts by five schools via the loud speakers at the top of the city standpipe, and all other features of the program. W. S. Stanberry, Fort Dodge, president of the Santa Claus company which, furnished operators and equipment, said that Algona had the largest crowd and most perfect organization he had seen. This is Mr. Stanberry's second year in the work. His company supplied last year/s program here, and now has complete bookings in Iowa, Minnesota, and Illinois till December 23. He was much pleas ed with the reception here. Praise from Salesmen. J. N. Manspn, Rock Island, .sales man for a Minneapolis hosiery concern, says Algona'e streets in the business district are the mos beautifully and effectively decorated he has seen in trips from St Louis to the Twin Cities. He, too was amazed to note the crowd that jammed Algona's street for Santa Claus day. Two other salesmen who called at tine KoMhaas & Spilles hardware store last Thursday marveled at the turnout and the way the event was managed, saying they had never before seen anything of the kind so capably and effectively done. Graham Official Surprised. R. E. Stewart, Ottumwa, secretary-treasurer of the Graham stores organization, came unsuspectingly last Thursday morning to call on C. L. Bliley, manager of the local Gralham store. To his surprise he was put right to work and was kept happing till the store was closed at night. He told Mr. Bliley he had never heard of anything of the sort that went over so favorably, and his opinion of Algona's enterprise and good entertainment for visitors was expressed m tihe superlative. Salesmen for other lines who made calls here that day were told they would have to come back some other time—the merchants were too busy being hosts to the crowd. Contrary to common supposition, however, the day was not a great business event for Algona, and was not expected to be. The monetary turnover was not much greater than usual. Algona merchants were mainly interested in showing visitors a good time. Children Tiew Toys. 'But toylands were crowded with people who brought children to see the toys. The Christensen basement toy-land was filled with a mass of humanity all day, and the Graham, Cummings, Gamble, and other toy exhibits kept all chil- dreh's eyes wide open. at hardware, clothing, Jewelty, drug, and other stores crowds inspected new merchandise with an eye to Christmas purchases. This Santa Claus day has been acclaimed as the largest and best entertainment of its kind in northern Iowa, even eclipsing' similar events at Mason City and Fort Dodge by a wide margin. There was a bigger crowd, the street decorations were more beautiful, the parade was longer and more colorful, and the attitude of the merchants in centering on entertainment rather than business was especially remarked. Other Visitors Comment. A Mr. Leuthold, St. Paul, and Guy Hinkley, Eagle Grove, who were here to close a deal whereby the Boston store was sold to the Leuthold Clothing Co., were astonished by the size of the crowd and the manner in which Algona played host to visitors. Both had '-to go to work at the Boston .Store to help Manager D. A. Bagan and his clerks, and all were kept on the Jump. Messrs, -•euthold and Hinkle commented favorably on the initiative shown by .he Algona Community club and its committees in arranging and stajr- ng the event.

PALO ALTO WOMAN DIES AS SHOTGUN CHARGE HITS HER In Palo Alto county, west of Fenton six miles and a mile north, took place a tragedy last week Tuesday morning which shocked the neighborhood. As a result Mrs. Walter Kellogg, young farm wife, lies in a premature grave. (Death was the result of an accident at 7:30. The young, woman's husband had gone after the cows, taking with 'him a 12-gauge shotgun, intending to shoot a rabbit or two in case any showed up. The cows were driven to the barn, and the gun was set Up there while the milking was done. Mrs. Kellogg helped with ,bhe milking, and when it was done, Mr. Kellogg carried the milk and his wife the gun. Mrs. Kellogg had to creep through a stanchion, and as she was doing so Mr. Kellogg was startled by discharge of tihe gun. At the same instant Mrs. Kellogg Running to his wife, Mr. Kellogg found that the charge had struck her in the right cheek under the !ye, instantly killing her. 'How the gun happened to be :ired is not known, but it is sup- josed that the hammer toad been left partly cocked and that something made it snap while Mrs. Kellogg was going through the stanchion. Though it was .plain that Mrs. Kellogg was already dead, Mr. Kellogg called Doctor Mueller, of Fenton. The Kelloggs had no children. The farm the Kellogs occupied is near the hamlet of Depew. The Kellogs had been there since March, but had been in the neighborhood four or five years, 'having come there from iLegrand, near Mashall- town.
