The Algona Upper Des Moines, Algona, Iowa, July 5, 1034 FAMOUS RODEO AND HORSE SHOW HERE JULY 19-22 Millers Show Coming to Algona to Exhibit for Four Days at Fair Ground •Great Show Carries One Hundred Head of Stock and 50 Cowboys, girls The Pair Association has recently signed up the Clyde S. Miller's World Famous Rodeo and Society Horse Show. The Miller rodeo, carrying over 100 head of stock and 50 cowboys and •cowgirls Is coming to Algona with the greatest show ever seen in Iowa. Mr. Miller and his superintendent of rodeo stock, Roy Strauss, have Just returned from Wyoming and Montana with 50 head of the worst outlaw bucking horses that could be purchased. Most of these horses were bought over 100 miles from the nearest railroad. At Pinedale, Wyoming, where a rodeo is held annually a prize is given for the toughest bucking horse and last year "Black Bottom" now with the Miller Rodeo, won this prize. Other famous outlaw horses to appear here are, Black Beauty, Panic, Brown Jug:, Apple Cider, White Angel, Rocky Mountain and many others. Some of the noted ropers are Weaver Grew, formerly connected with Will Rogers and one of Rogers' closest friends- Grew is without fear of contradiction, one of the greatest fancy ropers in the world. Earl Strauss of Denver, Shorty Grugan of El Paso, Texas, and "Pinky" Barnoskl of Elk Mountain, Wyoming, are other famous ropers with the Miller Rodeo. Two of the world's funniest rodeo clowns, Oklahoma Slim, and Shorty Grugan, and their equally funny clown mules, will be here. Shorty Grugan, Miss Vic Grugan and little seven y«ar •old Leonard Grugan appe_ar in a clever whip act and also do trick and fancy riding. Some of the other trick and fancy riders are: Juanito Grey of Fort Worth, a former George White ScandaLi beauty; Pretty Veldene Hammer of Ft. Piere, South Dakota, and her beautiful white horse, Silver King; Earl Strauss, featuring a suicide dive from the back of a horse running at top speed. Joe Losen, the outstanding trick, rider at the Chicago Worlds Fair last year, turning cart wheels on the side of his speeding mount and concludes his act by going completely under the body of hla horse while the horse la running. This la a very dangerous and difficult trick, one performed by very few riders. A few of the other trick riders are Marjorle Roberta, Pinky Bamoskl, Shorty Grugan, Vic Orugan and seven year old Leonard Grugan A car load of wild Bramha bulls and Texas Longhorna. the former Imported to Texas from the Brwnha bland* will be used at each performance. These Bramhas are as hard to ride as trw bucking horses. They resemble the sacred cattle of India in looks and the bulls of Old Spain In disposition. Cowboys are not supposed to be good foot racers but when you see an enraged Bramha charging a rider he has Just thrown you will think some track records are being broken. The steers used in the bulldogglng contest are genuine Longhorns. a type of cattle fast becoming extinct. The fastest of horses have to be used so the rider can leap to the horns of the running str.-r and wr-stlo him down until all four legs are outstretched. This is one of the most dangerous of sports. Many famous bulldoggers will be here: Ued Herlngton, of Tulsa, Oklahoma, Prank Dock of Cottonwood, South Dakota, Eddie BoUsin. Devils Tower, Wyoming. Eddie Hovenkamp, of Fort Worth, Texas. Pinky Barnoski. Elk Mountain, Wyoming, and many others. A feature seen in very few rodeos is a troupe of beautiful high school and galled saddle horse* Before entering the rodeo business, both Mr. and Mrs. Miller were prominent in leading sad- dle horse shows all over the country. In one number Mr .and Mrs. Miller ride two beautiful cream colored Kentucky saddlers; these two horses do all the gaits of the Americ-m saddle horse to perfection and in addition close with wonderful high school numbers. Then Mr. Miller appears on Royal Robert, this horse winning at many leading shows throughout the country. He is a whole show himself and to give an idea of his value, a $5,000-00 Insurance policy is carried on him. He does everything except talk. Ace High heads the stable of high Jumping horses, with a record of seven feet nine inches and Is said to be the highest Jumping horse living. Other famous high Jumpers are The Flyer ridden by Miss Veldene Hammer and Dapper Dan, with Earl Strauss up. A comedy vein Is added to the Jumping contest when Oklahoma Slim appears with his high jumping mule and Shetland pony. Another feature nf the show Is a quadrille on horse back put on by cowboys and cowgirls. They use all the calls of an old fashioned square dance and the horses go through the various changes with little or no assistance from the riders. A number of the same riders and horses will be here that have taken part in various western rodeos. In fact, you will see the same show at Algona that you would see at a western rodeo- ST.

"Uncle Charley" Always Popular in Politics Ray Sperbeck in Swea City Herald County Convention Notes: Completely absorbed by the happenings of the forenoon we did not notice during the lunch period that the occupants of a nearby table 1 were State Comptroller C. B. Murtngh, who came up from Des Moines to preside at the democratic convention, and Mrs. P. W. Larson, the convention secretary. After the fog had lifted and the usual greetings ensued, Mr. Murtagh reminisced on the days when he was a resident of Emmet county and its representative In the leglsature while this writer was still a callow youth in Es- thervllle Here Is an instance of "now it can be told" with propriety. As a young man, Mr. Murtagh located In the banking business at Ringsted. Encouraged to run for the legislature, he first faced what appeared to be an unsurmount- able obstacle—a democrat running for office in a county almost solidly republican. Over at Estherville things were pretty much controlled by a republican oligarchy, but Mr. Murtagh so deeply impressed these gentlemen with his earnestness and ability they straightway went, to his support and he wa-s circled. His flair for politics has carried him to the hiRli office of state comptroller, whether his outstanding records sustains the faith of the old republican friends of the dnys when he was beginning his career.
