For many years, Miss Baker has been featured on the Keith circuit nnd is a dramatic actress as well as a prima. donna of the finest type. Those lovers of music, who appreciate a well trained voice, will unquestionably be thrilled when they hear Miss Baker sing the wedding theme song on this particular night. Miss Baker will be; supported by sixteen beautifully gowned young ladies of this community to act as Maids of Honor and Flower Girls. The Algona Military Band will play the musical score for the ceremony. Few people have witnessed weddings other than their own, and very'few have witnessed a ceremony in all the gorgeous panoply which' accompanies this one, except perhaps those who have witnessed the rich of the world and public offlpials. There will be a magnificent scenic background, and with all their friends and well wishes, the happy pair will be well launched on the sea of matrimony. Local merchants have outdone themselves in generosity, which, together with the fair management and Mr. Young, the happy pair, will start with presents of/.every kind, and nature as few have-been able to start; 4 The gifts ^wukbe.,,-- --£—-"--"-- • ~ week.x Nothing-has been spar make this the most elaborate affair ever held in this part of the country and no one should miss it.

With a spick and span appearance that is so foreign to most shows of this kind at this time of the year, the Royal American Shows under the direction of Messrs. Sedlmayr and Velare, will present thirty of the highest class exhibitions ever gotten together under the banner of a single management. From the front to tho back of the snow, nothing has been overlooked, not an item of expense has been spared, the big show is a complete tented city in itself, with Its blacksmith shop, carpenter shops, paint department, with a crew of painters who are constantly touching up spots that have been worn by transportation, a complete barber shop, tailoring establishment, a cook house, where the show's executives, performers and working men are fed; the'dining department of the R. A. S. is also' available for the benefit of the visitors to the lot who find it inconvenient to go to their homes for meals. This department can be classed as a credit to any traveling organization. An innovation in the outdoor show world, Inaugurated by Seldmayr & Velare, is the employment of a doctor, assisted by a graduate nurse, with complete hospital facilties on the grounds, for the benefit of all employees, everyone on the'R. A. S. payroll is examined by the show doctor and free medical attention is provided.

Ed. Barrett, one of the old and substantial farmers of Portland township was in Algona Saturday with his son, who was entering some fine cattle in the Kossuth county fan-. Mr. Bartlett is not In the best of health, but says he looked over one of his corn fields and found some very good corn, In a reminiscent mood, he told of some of the hardships of earlier days when the settlers had a struggle in meeting their grocery and other bills for necessities. During the past few years Mr. Bartlett has spent nearly $5,000 In improving his farms with good drainage and-says it will pay. He has faith in Iowa, and says that on a visit to Wisconsin a few years ago to buy cattle, a Wisconsin farmer, after being told by Mr. Bartlett that he was from Iowa, said, "Oh, from the state "' gold. " "Yes," said Mr. Bartlett, you work hard enough." The n Bartlett stands for honesty, hard worK and succes in Kossuth county and Mr. BarletKs sons are following in his foot steps.
