The sun beat iu on he race track hot enough to boil eggs. Rev. Gelger wielded a fan in one land and mopped his brow with a andkerchief in the other, while his okes kept pace with the beady drops n the faces of hie perspiring audience. Rev, Geiger is the orator for an occa- ion like that and the roars of laughter estified to his entertaining ablftty. ?he band played its choicest selections, aid then in what shade could be found .he picnic dinner preceded the athletic ivents of the afternoon. The rivalry was between the Algona ind Burt lodges. Burt took first honors in putting a 16 pound weight, winning both prizes. Algona evened up by taking both in throwing the mminer. Then Burt came in again winning both prizes in the foot race. Che towns divided on throwing the >ase ball, but Algona won both on the iroad jump, and both on the running n-'oad jump, both on the running high ump and divided on the standing high ump. But Burt took all the honors on ;he bicycle. The tug of war went to Algona and the baseball game to Burt, which loft the honors rather with Algona until the ladies came in. Then Mrs. Lamoreux for Burt took first at Growing the baseball and first at driv- ng the nail, and honors were pretty easy. The most exciting contest was ,he tug of war. Burt pulled wonder- "ully and for a few minutes seemed to je a winner. But the Algona nine had ;he weight, and a pair of baseball elates the Burt men asserted, and held iheir ground. The most amusing con- iest was the ladies' nail driving. The east exciting and noteworthy event was the ball game, which belonged to ;he pioneer day period. A big crowd was present throughout and enjoyed itself as well as the heat would permit. It made it seem cooler to see Dr. Morse and Charlie Winkie running a foot race, and Wm. Carlon jumping six feet or less on tbe high jump. The all around athlete was W. F. Jenkinson of Union, who seems to be as young and limber as he ever was: Next year a full field day program will be put on. It will be the event of ;he season. It will compete with the Fourth of July as an attraction, and draw as big a crowd. Great are the Workmen. THE EVENTS IN DETAIL.
