The Spanish American War veterans of this section held their annual reunion at Emmetsburg on August 16, and many veterans from this section were present. An afternoon program was held In the city park and a banquet followed In the evening. Among the speakers at the banquet was Tom Sherman, well known Algona man. The Democrat hi repqrting the affair had the following to say of Mr. Sherman, which recalls the days '98 in Kossuth county: "Among the several speakers was Thomas Sherman of Algona, well known to many local readers. Mr. Sherman found It necessary in 1898 to take a trip to Chickamaugua where Company K was in camp. One of his brothers was a member of the Fifty-Second Iowa .Regiment, which went from Fort Dodge, and ho became quite ill. It will be remembered that there was a serious blunder in the location of the camp. The sewage disposal plant emptied into a river some distance above the camp and the boys were brought their drinking water from below this location. This was very stupid on the part of the higher officers but the soldiers had to obey and their complaints were Ignored. Governor Shaw, who was Iowa's chiei executive at the time, visited Chicka- maugua but actual conditions were kept from him. He was shown only the regiments on parade. The quarter,.) were neat and clean when he called to examine them. In the fall Geo. E. Boyle, who conducted a bank at Whittemore, decided to go to Chickamaugua where one of his sons was also ill with typhoid fever. He learned the actual facts and wrote up the situation in the Whlttemore, Algona and Pes Molnes newspapers. The entire state was soon aroused and conditions in the camp were promptly changed. Mr. Boyie and Mr. Sherman were highly complimented on the successful results of their trips. It is needless to say that Mr. Sherman, who has had a great deal of experience in business and public affairs, and who is versatile and ready, proved a very popular speaker at the banquet. All who were present complimented him on his. efforts.' Iowa Looked Very Good to Them. Mr. and Mrs. O. F. Walters returned home Monday from a week's visit in Illinois, where they were looking after business matters. They were delighted to get back home and say no places looks as good as northern Iowa.
