There*', are comparatively few "hanging bogs" in Iowa, and so far as known this is the only one in northern Iowa. Local geology dabblers think the bog is a result of the last of the glaciers which covered this par of the state, stopping in their course southward at a potat abou three miles, south of Algona. The end of the "glacier area cai be noted by the terminal moraine or high ground and hillocks of sand and dirt deposited by the glaciers as they melted away. Thus there are,the flats in the southern part of, the county, and large de- ALGONA MAKES FRONTPAGE IN NEW YORK IS MJAB.Y Elvadine Algona's entry in ,the Weir, state fair redhead contest.

Union slough, only a few miles north of this area, is a result of this leveling process. .Where Bogs are Formed. Bogs normally are found in low, undrained areas. Occasionally one is found on high ground, resulting from retention of water by unusual soil conditions which prevent the drainage. These are termed the "hanging" bogs because they are above the normal line of water drainage. Often relics of prehistoric times are found in bogs, particularly where they take the nature of quicksand. Tradition has it that at a famous battle in Ireland a troop of horsemen tried to\ escape slaughter by riding through a bog, which closed in upon them. During the revolutionary war peat diggers in fhis bog found a horse, and rider in complete armour in a good state of preservation in this bog. Watery Has Oily Film. C. H. Klamp, Advance writer, grew up on the old home farm where this bog is located.

A crowd of more than 5,000 enjoyed the fair Monday, which, was children's day ,and was in fact the opening day of the fair. Sunday was a complete rain-out, and none of the attractions were shown because of the almost constant drizzle. Rain early this morning for a time threatened to repeat Sunday's blanketing of the fair, but as this was written the sky was clearing. giving hope that today would bring a good crowd. The fair association did not take out rain insurance on this year's exhibition, believing that the $400 or more that has been paid each year for rain insurance was unnecessary. And Sunday's rain proved the association correct, for despite the all day drizzle there was not enough rain during the hours that would have been chosen for the fair to collect the insurance.
