A Perfect Day Made It Possible to Carry Out. the Complete Program as Announced. Saturday was a warm'and bright May day, The crowds came early for the memorial services, and in greater numbers than ever before, The opera house was crowded to the doors, In the afternoon ' the cemetery was thronged. Nothing occurred out of keeping with the sentiment of the occasion, The town was hung with banners and bunting .as for a Fourth of July, but no sports nor amusements had been planned, It was a quiet, thoughtful day, such as harmonized with the memories that belong to it, The old soldiers, living and dead, were with their struggles and triumphs again in review, and again the annual lesson in patriotism, was inculcated. The event of the day was Rev. Stewart's address, Rev. Stewart is a character. He owns an elevator at Britt and several farms and manages all. besides occupying the Congregational pulpit, His talk was such as might be expected from an all-around man. It abounded in anecdotes of the war, eloquent passages, references to other struggles for iiberty, and held the close attention of the crowded house, Songs by a quartette composed of Mrs. Sinclair, Maggie Hunt, Arthur Tellier, and 0, M. Doxsee and exercises by the post completed, the program. The parade fit } o'clpek was led by the Algona band, Capt. Dodge as marshal was aide4 by Col, Cooke and Regiment Surgeon Morse.

RYAN, Oface over the postofflce, Algona, CpME and see what we your encouragement.. M. Son. Cotirthas been occupied all Week with the attorney fee dispute between Col. Clarke and E. 8. Ellsworth, this is the second trial in Algona. In the first trial the judge instructed the jury that they might consider the amount involved in the litigation, the wealth of the parties and the benefits to be derived, in deciding what was a reasonable attorney fee. Witnesses also were allowed to testify as to the value of Col. Clarke's services who had not stated that they knew the value of such services in Hat-din county. The supreme court sent the case back On both grounds. It> the first trial Geo, E. Clarke and W. B. Quarton were for Col. Clarke and Judge Cooke was assisted by. Birdsall & Naglo fof Ellsworth. In this trial Judge Carr has been with Geo. E. Clarke, and R. M, Wright of Fort Dodge has assisted Judge Coolie. The case ari>es out of a divorce secured by Mr. Ellsworth from his wife. Mrs. Ellsworth accepted service of notice, also signed an agreement as to alimony, and went to Colorado to vloit. While she was absent the divorce was granted, irregularly a_s it turned out, Judge Hlndmau granting a decree out of court. Mrs. Ellsworth came home and denied that she knew what she was signing. She found friends In Cedar Rapids and through them engaged Frank Hormel as her attorney. It was also through them that Col. Clarke was secured to act with Mr. Hormel, In the end taking entire charge of her case. Mr. Ellsworth made a vigorous fight against having the decree of divorce set aside, but in the end came to an understanding with his wife by which she was reinstated in her home. The law provides that in case a wife is com polled to secure legal assistance ngalnst her husband it shall be a charge on him the same as when she buys the necessaries of l^fe. Mr. Ellsworth, however, refused to pay Col. Clarke, claiming that his wife did not engage his services. Col. Clarke thereupon sued Mr. Ellsworth for $5,000, bringing suit in Kossuth county because of Mr. Ellsworth's big landed interests here upon which an attachment was levied. The jury at the first trial gave Col. Clarke a verdict for $2,500. The testimony as to the value of the services was very conflicting then and also at this trial. Such lawyers as John F. Duncombe of Fort Dodge, C. C. Nourso of DBS Moines, and many others testify to anywhere from $3,500 to $5,000. On the other hand, Judge Weaver, Wesley, Martin of Webster City, and many others put it at not above $700. The taking of testimony was confined to this question and occupied Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday including evening sessions. Judge Thomas adjourned for Memorial day. Monday morning Geo. E. Clarke made the opening argument to the jury. He occupied about an hour and a half stating plainly and clearly Col. Clarke's case. Judge Cooke followed and did not conclude until 0 o'clock. He was followed by R. M. Wright who occupied yesterday forenoon, Judge Carr then began at 1 o'clock the closing argument. The case was bitterly contested at every point. Many legal tilts over the admission of evidence occasioned lively debate. All of the attorneys were thoroughly posted on the case and it was a lawyer's battle from beginning to end. Judge Carr occupied a half hour this morning to conclude his speech and Judge Thomns gave his instructions to the jury. With their decision will conclude one of the best fought legal battles Algona courts have witnessed in many years. Mrv Meyei* mm eat Said to leave the maB fttdfid and he would tftke <5dfe of hi fa.

Who has not heard of the famous fulls that boar that name? Longfellow has immortalized them-in the beautiful song of Hlawutha and Mlnnehaha: " She wns dying Mlnnehaha. Hark I she said, I hear a mulling, Hear a roaring and a rushing, Hoar the falls of Mlimuhaha Calling to mo from a distance. Thus the dying Indian maiden spoke as she heard the laughing waters, and as she thought of her Hiawatha "Far away amid the forests, miles away among the mountains." Longfellow must luive indeed been inspired by legendary lore us he penned the song of Hiawatha. He had never aeon the falls, but, no doubt, as he looked upon the picture of that beautiful spot that nature had created for man's admiration, his soul was stirred to tuneful response to his poetic genius, and back to the wild and untutored Indian in the land of the Daco- tahs he saw the lover and the maiden, Saw the forests and the river, Heard the songs of birds In springtime, Heard the murmur of the water As It laughed and fell In rainbows O'er the rocks Into the valley. It was a brother of Charles Sumner who brought the picture of HaHa faces to the poet who hits made them famous, and Ed. A. Bromley of Minneapolis was the first photographer to take a picture of them. HaHa falls, us they were originally named by the rod man, are indeed pict- uresque'and falrylike. No one who loves the creations of nature can fail to recognize the beauty and daintiness of the faces, or their surroundings. Far off across the meadow flows a little terook, a silver thread among the grasses until it tires of the sunshine, and suddenly plunges sixty feet downward over rocks, breaking itself in foam through which the sun again shines, forming the ever-changing rainbow among the rising mist. • Once the surroundings were ideal, but the relentless hand of civilization has changed the " dark and gloomy forest" to a park. Not far away rumbles the railroad train, the busy traffic of the world disturbes the silence and mingles discordantly with the voices of nature. Time, and the constant rushing water are wearing away the ledge over which the waters plunge, and the original glory of the famous falls has already faded. The sightseer turns away with a feeling of sorrow and disappointment that the wildness and beauty of Minnehaha are fast disappearing, But never, so long as Longfellow is read, will be found those who will not care to see one of the places in this world that we call famous and around which the past has woven so much fancy, legend, and mystery, There are three ways to reach the falls from St. Paul or Minneapolis. They aro, by street car, by pleasure steamer, or by train. Anyone who goes away from the Twin Cities without visiting Laughing Water misses an opportunity of a lifetime. Yours truly, E.

The following story is going the rounds at Fort Dodge and is told by the Messenger: There has been a great deal of quiet amusement, among those who have knowledge of the joke, over the way Pat Kain pulled the wool over Jim Ryan's unsuspecting eyes, and took advantage of Jim's confiding nature at the Dubuque convention. Jim was there in charge of the candidacy of his partner, C, L. Lund, fpr district delegate. Cain hud nothing against Lund, but had a political debt to pay to Colclo, the Carroll man who has always stood by Pat in his Duncombe fight. The law of the jungle, for which Cain has the highest respect, is that which commands a man to stand by his friends. How tp avoid a clash with Ryan was the first problem. Jim had been up all night getting to Dubuque, and Pat persuaded him that he needed rest and ought to go to his room and take a nap in the afternoon. He then arranged to cancel Jim's order to bo called, and the luckless manager of the Algona candidate slept the sleep of innocence and virtue with democracy all about him, until tlio next morning. By that time the pins were set and Colclo as good as elected, Practically all Jim did in Dubuque was to get that nap, It was a good nap, but ho went an unnecessary distance for it, Ho used to be qqite smart in politics when he lived here, but the democrats don't have rnvioh to do with politics in Kossuth county and Jim has deteriorated in a painful degree. The fact of wanting to sleep'at a democratic convention is in itself enough to disqualify a man for any responsibility there, Jim would make ti good delegate to a convention of Y. P, S, C. E,, but his usefulness in democratic gatherings is past, The Fan Tan 18 A Clear Havana Cigar _ For 5 Cents, The only clear Havana 5-ceut cigar In Algona. A., B.
