The attendance was not what was anticipated, but a goodly crowd turned out to see what our modern Indians could do. It witnessedthe closest shooting match of the year and a lot of exciting sports, ate some roasted beef, and yoted the Redmen a worthy order. The morning program at the opera house was carried out as announced excepting that Grand Sachem Naeve did not arrive for the address. He sent no explanation and his unexpected absence was embarassing. Mayor Chrischilles' pleasant welcome was responded to by Mr. McCowen for the order, who extended his remaka so as in part to fill in the time. Dr. Morse also, as presiding officer, spoke briefly in behalf of the Redmen. Headed by the band at 12 o'clock the Seneca tribe, together with the visiting brethren, marched to the fair grounds. The procession was to have been swelled by 60 from Boone, but they missed connections in some way and were not present. The visitors were chiefly from Eagle Grove, a few from Des Moines and Fort Dodge being present. Arrived at the grounds L. K. Shndle began serving the roasted ox and pig, and those who were not entertained at the Baptist ladies' pavilion satisfied their hunger at the barbecue. At 1:30 o'clock the afternoon sports began with the Grimm-Gilbert contest. without making any inquiry.

The Shooting Match. Both men were in excellent trim and both were anxious to win. They had never met before in a 100-bird match. Grimm has won several lesser matches for practice, and both had shot together in general contests, but this was their first set contest for supremacy and a determination to win was evident with both. Grimm expected to win. His disappointment when he lost was very evident. Gilbert's joy at winning was equally evident. The birds as a rule were tame and easy. But the hard shots were very hard. Grimm missed two out of his first 25, both easy. Gilbert missed three, two in succession. Then the shooting settled down. Grimm lead to his 92nd bird, which he missed, making a tie. He missed his 99th losing the the match. During the last shots Gilbert made some remarkable hits with his second barrel. John G. Smith acted as referee and the official score is as follows: GRIMM, TOTAL 93: 21x2 2 2 220222222212 22 222 22 *^22 2 2 2 2°2°2 ofJ 2222'' ^2 *?

FEED TIIOBN. 8HEUY & PETTIBONI, Head Stones, Monuments, The Other Sports. While the shooting was going on the other contests were in progress. C. Thompson won the running broad jump, Geo. Hackman, A. H. Allen, Carl Wauge, and Geo. Sarchett competing. Geo. Hackman won the high jump, A. H. Allen second. Mark Boyle astonished the boys by running away from them on the 100- yard dash, W. Hanlon second. Mark proved to be a sprinter. In the half mile pony race Mark Scott's runner won against the Sarchett, Bossingham and Little horses. The Archery Content. One of the new features was the archery contest. S. B. McLellan, Walter King, Carl Wauge, A. H.Allen and Sumner Reed competed. The boys had very fine lance wood bows and used a special target, and sent their arrows into it in true Redmen fashion. A. H. Allen made the best score, though all showed that they had been practicing. Archery is one of the best out-door sports, and the Redmen bid fair to revive it in Algona. The Relay Rnce, Another new sport was the relay race. Pour runners on a side covered a quarter of a mile, each 110 yards, carrying an arrow from one to the other. One team was Dutton, Walsh, Crammond, and Boyle. The other was Reed, Raymond, Hackman, and Allen. The first team won, although the arrows were given to the last runners almost at the same moment. But Boyle was too fleet for Allen on the home run. It was an exciting race. The Two MUe nun. Eugene Tellier and Haney of Des Moines competed. They took a pretty speedy jog from the start and kept it up to the home stretch, when Haney forged ahead and won. The time was not taken, but they covered the two miles very quickly. The Bull Game. The Eagle Grove nine played the Algona boys with Salisbury in the box. The game was for five innings, and at the end of the fifth stood two and two. On the sixth the Grovites got two more and won the game. It was as pretty a little game as Algona has often seen. Tfte Evening Concert. In the evening the Algona band gave an open air concert on the court yard. It was a pleasant way in which to close a pleasant day. Next time the Redmen celebrate they will have a bigger crowd out to assist them. Mr, HugU Black's Birth Place.'
