In many counties afoar weeks' summer school is held, costing the teachers S3: their £'3 institute fee being for the first week only. Supt. Reed gets no extra pay for institute work. In many counties the superintendents exchange work and so get pay as instructors. In the Kos-uth Institutes the teachers get board and room at about S2.50 a week. In many counties they pay .$3.50. The teachers get fine accommodations, fine Instructions, fine entertainments, and all it Hosts' is the?] Institute fee. That is the reason why the attendance has grown BO steadily. Supt. Reed certainly has no superior ID tbe state in this work. Supt. SabirTs AddreBB. : On Monday evening State Superintendent Sabin delivered a fine lecture on educational creed to a crowded house. It is regarded as being one of the most entertaining' and valuable lectures of the institute course. The educational creed which he advocated is a very plain, common sense one. He believes that'to teach a child is the highest possible calling: and that to overload it with too many studies at one time is a positive sin. He believes also that examinations for promotion in the graded schools do much harm by causing undue mental anxiety and nervousness of tbe children. The lecture was full of sparkling gems of thought and greatly appreciated by the audience. PHYSICIAM AND SURGEON, Algona, Iowa. M. 2. KEHEF1CK, PHYKICIAN AND KUR'JEON.

The church was crowded Thursday evening to bear Lafe Young of Des j Moines on Lincoln. It was notaset address, but one of those semi-extemporaneous talks in which Mr. Young has no superior in the state. He gave an appreciative estimate of tbe martyred president, reviewed some of the most eventful episodes in bis career, and closed with a touching eulogy of his tenderness and great-beartedness. Mr. Young's two talks to tbe instituttsbave. made him very popular with the teachers. The Closing Lecture. Tomorrow evening Prof. French of Chicago will give one of his noted chalk talk lectures at the church. Prof. French is an artist of known reputation, and his delightful entertainment will be a fit closing to a splendid series of evening programs. Prof. GllchriBt Remembered.

Br the same mail came a letter from Miss Ward which explains the sending of them, and from which we are per- mittee to copy a portion. Miss Ward i- DOW on the editorial staff of the New York Independent. The letter reads: " My Dear Cousin: I am sending you by mall a very shabby looking old cap which rou may be dad to'see again. It has hung in my room for thirty years, and the moths have"feasted on it: but it seemed to methat this o)d relic of your soldier life ought to be fcppt ana prized by some of your own immediate Leasehold. I have also put in the fork and spoon which you nsed to eat with in camp. I suppose there must have been a knife with it originally, bat if so it never csune ILU) my possession. I have always Irept these things in open view where they could remind us all of the old war days, with streamers of red, white, and blue \o emphasize tbe patriotic lesson, but it seemed a pity to have the old cap drop to pieces, and it seemed to me that your oldest daughter must BOW be old enough to value a.-ncTtake pride in any relic of this sort. I nope you have written out carefully for vonr family the particulars of your war record—what company you were in, what battles, etc., so that none of your descendants need have the trouble in proving their ancestors" patriotism that some of these would-be 'Sons of the American Revolution' nave. Mind yon, I don't return these because I do not prize them, but because I think it right for your own children to keep them." Mr. Robinson now finds more to treasure in these old relics than be did when be saw the war ended and an opportunity to return to tbe peaceful walks of life. In speaking of the matter he expressed surprise that be, as well as others, had failed to secure and preserve, when he could, articles which would have become priceless relics of the great struggle. ca-^hter of Iv A. Lind. of near Rolfe, was accidentally shot in the eye with a 22-ca!5bre revolver in the hands^ of another child and tbe eye destroyed, if the wound does not prove fatal. A voung man of tbe neighborhood was helping Mr. Lind at some farm work. and having the revolver in bis coat pocket-he threw tbe coat on top of a canopy top buggy that stood in tbe vard.' Afterwards, wbileplayingin tbe bu<7°y. the children shook the coat off and'fbund the revolver, and in some wav it was discharged, the ball taking effect as stated above. On Monday the j bullet had not been located .and the lit- j tie girl was very low. Mr. Lind's fam- j il v seems to be unfortunate. Last spring i another child came very near losing her life from tbe kick of a horse. A Good Butter is necessary for the dining table, but it does not make a good axle grease.

They will have the town for the two days and will be made welcome according to Algona's well-known reputation for hospitality. Those having tbe matter in charge are getting on nicely and arrangements are rapidly nearing completion for what promises to be a pow-wow in name, but a splendid entertainment in fact. The barbecue, which will be a new feature lor Algona, is an assured thing, and will be under tbe immediate supervision of John Ambrose of Forest City, an experienced hand at this kind of work. At the amateur shooting tournament, which begins next Tuesday, one of the chief attractions will be the presence of Mrs. Dr. Day of Dulutb, who so nearly promises to be here that we feel safe in making the announcement. She is said to be bandy with a gun, and the scores she has made in other matches indicate that the boys will have to hustle if they beat ber. Her husband is also a noted trap shooter, and is expected to be present. G. L. Taylor received a letter from Gilbert, who is now in Chicago, this morning in which he promises to be on hand for the 100 live-bird contest with Grimm.

Call's pasture, and the Bed Man features at the opera house and in town. Altogether the two days' doings promise a lively time for Algona. BEMI-LOOAL NEWS NOTES. The Whittemore Champion said seven wheelmen of that town came to Algona Sunday and the girls were terribly shocked to see them with sweaters on. The Armstrong Journal declares: We don't believe it. Algona is up to date in most everything and we are satisfied they have several twentieth century girls there and we don't believe there is an old granny among the girls in the town. -T- -T- -j- The Bev.
