Inside its pagts were the picture, the names of the players and the title of Iowa state champions, the Forest City Collegians. Three other state champions were represented likewise. Of the Iowa team one can say that the news in this paper Is faster than wire photo because the title was not won until about eleven o'clock Wednesday night a scant ten hours before the paper was on sale up here. Bert Orlnnell caught » good slseJ fish at the dam stream north of town. It was placed on a stringer and put ba':k in the water secured to the banlt. Later when he went to gather his catch for the homeward trip he found nothing. All had disappeared. Two days afterwards some boys casting at the place snagged the stringer with the flsh still Intact. • • • Why peck over the fence of ri colony, when one can enjoy those same sights by looking into the air. There Is a flat roof on which some of Algona's bathing beauties partake of their sun baths. The only draw back to comfort is that some of the fair girls have lingered !n the ultra-violet a little too long. Friday was a day for torture, the girls could not sit down. The roof, oh yes, it is in the high school neighborhood. • • * Nlghtwutchnuui Valentine Is wondering why the price of milk went up two cents. He is sure Mads or the boys at the creamery have not received a parking violation ticket but from now on they must get within the red lines. • • • A grocery clerk fell in the dol drums of routine. The boss sent him on an errand. The clerk let Icose his pent up pep and like an Olympiad took flight by a shortcut to his destination. In his hurry he ran into a clothesline and went sprawling all over Mrs. Setchell's flower bed. There he lay out cold, none aware of his fate. Later when he appeared at the store he was certain hours had passed, but in truth only a few minutes. The blackened eye is about normal at this time. • * • -Mrs. Itulph Miedke of the Algona hotel has a brother, Wurren Giles, president of the Rochester baseball club in the International league. Last week daily papers carried the story of his promotion to the presidency of the league, one step below the office of the National and American leagues, the biggest on earth. • • • Bed Corrick, catcher of the local baseball team, who was out of the lineup several days, saw coaching duty at first base. When the team played at Storm Lake in the afternoon Red spent bis time as usual coaching. When the eighth inning rolled around the base umpire walked over to where Red was standing and picked up a quarter and spoke with a smile, "We umpires are not blind, are we?" • • • "Under Northern Stars" Is the title of a much read book at the library. After the word, "The End" various readers have written their opinion of the book. The flrst thought It a very, very good book with the author knowing his stuff. The second said It was not so hot and the first didn't know much about the tale. The third writer and critic supplied th< words, "It Is a good book" anc gave reasons for thinking so. Al In all library boks are not to be mutilated by writing. A letter published last week from Mrs. A. A. Bishop, criticizing an article about railroads In thli column was greatly appreciated but Mrs. Bishop has formed wrong opinion of Its purpose am Intent. She wrote that the M. A. T said he had not ridden on a train for twelve years. The real thini stated that Karl Vincent had no been on a train In that time. thing odd to most folks whic started a small craze of recallln their last ride. She then told o a recent trip, interesting and new sy, but finished, "People are He Ing trains whether the M. A. 1 can find them or not" This quotation carrying deeply the purpose of Its meaning recalls other incidents. Last spring a school class of primary kids were treated to a ride to Burt on the morning passenger, a rare novelty for them. Going back a few years there were nix passenger trains daily, except Sunday, on the Northwestern through Algona. Today one coach each way makes the trip with a pnrt of that used for passengers. Now then where do the people ride. Yes, "people ride the trains, and again they don't."
