Come and see an elegant stock. D. B. fVVEY. Mrs. Ella Hamilton Durley, whose literary contributions to the Des Moines News signed Judith Jorgenson have given her more than a state reputation, came to Algona last week to see the town and the art loan exhibition. Before coming she gave a preliminary announcement and said. "For a country town, and such it calls itself, Algona is covering itself with honor this week. On Thursday and Friday, today and tomorrow, there will be open to the public at that place an art exhibit that would do credit to a city of much larger growth. It promises to be of real educational value. Through the influence of leading citizens of Algona the Art Institute o Chicago has sent out 150 pictures rep resenting both black and white and al Don't Forget that we always have on hand all kinds of grain and ground feed, bran, shorts, and oil meal at reasonable prices; also COAL of all kinds and grades.

SCHU & WATERHOUSE, so color work, some 50 framed pictures of each, and in addition thereto 60 large framed photographs of works o the old masters—sufficient in them selves to make a fine exhibition. The willingness on the part of the directors of the Art Institute to lend their aid toward the creating of a deeper inter est in art is certainly to be commended It augurs well for the future develop merit of art in this country. If there is to be fostered a love for the true anc beautiful it must be done largel_ through the generosity of those who count themselves disciples of the same. Missionary work is a prime necessity. It is the commercial spirit which as yet dominates the people of the west, and they fail to see a return for their money in that which appeals solely to their taste. But progress is being made here as elsewhere and as in all good work it is necessary and wise to make haste slowly. "The Art school of Minneapolis has sent a box of meritorious work to the Algona exhibition. Mr. Victor Shinn of Brooklyn gives encouragement to the enterprise by sending some of his own work, in the form of water colors, pictures in black and white and life studies. Mrs. Shinn contributes also a collection of American reproductions of Japanese decorative work which is pronounced of admirable quality. " It is to the credit of the Des Moines Academy of Arts of which Mr. C. A. Cumming of this city is director, that it will be represented by some excellent pictures. Mr. Cumming has too sincere a regard for his profession and too deep a love for art not to advance so praiseworthy an enterprise in every possible way. - Mr. Cumming has not only seen much of the best art of the world but he has also studied abroad under highly advantageous conditions. He has faith in the future of Iowa as regards art and he is willing to work for what that future may bring. There have been sent to Algona by Mr. Cumming no fewer than 17 of his best oil paintings, including the 'OldBrittany Kitchen,' the Miraculous Fountain called Notre Dame de Bonder, the ' Child in the Chimney Corner,' and numerous other paintings, chiefly landscapes." Upon her -return she gave her impressions of the visit: "The good people of Algona boast that there is no town in Iowa that is surrounded by more charming country. It truth, the wooded slopes of the Upper Des Moines which curve about the town in horseshoe shape, a loop of silver, are most picturesque. It is a favorite saying, too, that the horseshoe has brought good luck to the people of the town in the way of immunity from storms, etc However that may be, it must be count ed good fortune to look out, from day to day, upon those everlasting hills which rise all about in gentle, undulat bat would have the spirit and the courage to inaugurate an art exhibit in- rolving no small outlay in money right .n the midst of the fall political cam- rnign? But while politics is at fever jeat up in old Kossuth the loan exhibition is quietly making expenses, and those who visit the hall—and eyery- jody finds his way thither at one time or another—derive much pleasure and jrofltfromit. The affair is a complete luccess and the venture will doubtless naugurate an annual exhibition. "Mrs. Starr, who is an artist as well as an art lover, is represented by numerous works, among the rest a beautiful canvas of dark red roses, a picture which hung in the Iowa building atthe world's fair, and attracted much favorable comment. A small Iand8cape_by Mrs. Starr, in which appear the rich golden shades of autumn, is one of the admirable things in the exhibition. Miss Josephine Pettibone, a graduate of the Pratt institute of Brooklyn, N. Y., has on exhibition a variety of work all of which shows a correct taste and painstaking effort backed by thorough instruction. There are quite a number of pictures from the brush of W. G. Purvis, a young man of Algona, the son of Scotch parents, who unexpectedly developed an art talent. He has become a student of the Art Institute Chicago, and shows much promise. His landscapes are rather on_the impressionistic order but in sufficient moderation to be true to nature. Young Purvis has also a large collection of fifteen-minute studies which evince superior talent quite as much as do his more finished paintings. Miss Jessamine Jones, who pursued her art studies at Hamilton, Ontario, has a number of pieces in water colors, chiefly flower paintings. Mrs. Mary E. Call Perkins, a former Algona girl, now a resident in the east, has several good pictures, though it is said she is capable of much better work now. There are pictures possessing merit also from the brushes of Miss Ella Durant and Miss Anna Hamilton, both of whom have been )es Moines students. Cash Shoe Store, Algona, Iowa.

"It was left to Mrs. Judge Call, one of the early settlers, to give the name to the town, It is said she selected the name ' Algona' because of its rnuslca sound and that it has no'particular sig niticance. The name is subject to slight variations. The urbane brak man who notifies travelers of the train arrival calls out 'Algony, Algony, and yet his life is mercifully spared. " Puring the late bard times—lat« but not lamented—the residents of town were sometime referred to a "All-goners," but that was possibly prompted by an ignoble jealousy.

THE excellent crops this year have given an impetus to farming that has not been experienced for some time. Central Minnesota has felt the effects as much or more than any other section of the northwest, and hundreds of farmers have taken advantage of the opportunity to secure some of the low- priced but splendid lands being offered For sale by the Northern Pacific Railway company.
