The Algona Upper Peg Koines, Ateoaa, lonw, Oct. 13,1936 That Was In October. 1865 71 Years Ago!. D IRTHDAYS are a good time to take stock of one's self. That goes for newspapers as well as for men. Let's pause a moment and see how far we have come. HPHE first issue of The Upper Des Moines was printed 7 1 years ago. It ,vas printed on a press that was the wonder of its day, and all copy was set by hand, after being edited by pencil, without the use of a telephone, typewriter or a linotype machine. TMEWS in the first issues told of the activities of the Northern Iowa Border Brigade, organized after the New Ulm, Minnesota, massacre as protection against the Indians. Both the white men and Indians were still chasing buffalo. OINCE 1865 nearly all things have changed. There are no ^buffalo or Indians, no border brigade. But the historical Upper Des Moines name remains, one of the few surviving names from the days of the Pioneer. A T THE 71 st milestone, The Algona Upper Des Moines "wears its years lightly. We feel that these are good times to live in. We look forward confidently to a greater Kossuth county, and to a future that will offer us opportunities for public service as yet unsuspected. w E HOPE to carry on, to the best of our ability, the traditions of Kossuth County's Pioneer Newspaper.
