Purchase Boulder with Funds Left by Taylor Post and other Funds, DEDICATION SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 21ST, D. A. Haggard JUtst Member of Jas. C. Taylor Post, Presents Its Funds to W. B. C. President. (By Mrs. Julia F. Brace, Member of the W. R. C.) Not very long ago at Stillwater, Minnesota, thirty-three vacant chairs draped in black, stood as silent sentinels around a banquet table, and witnessed that Charles Lockwood carried out the covenant of the Last Man's club. Comrade Lockwood, eighty-seven years old, is the last man, and the club's only law required of him what he considered the hardest task of his life, the dramatic task of drinking a toast to thirty-three Civil War comrades who died before, which honor he found empty, Before each chair stood a bouquet of flowers. Before Lockwood's plate was placed the bottle of OJd Burgundy wine, which the club had set aside at its formation In 1885, for Just this event. But the wine had soured and a sip of it was all Lockwood asked to keep his pledge. The bottle was turned over to the historical society. These comrades were members of Company B, First Minnesota Volunteer Infantry, and this wierd banquet, like those each year before, was on the anniversary of the first Battle of Bull Run, in which the company's posses were exceeded only at Gettysburg. Each at the last meeting a year ago thought he would be the last man. At the last review only three answered to roll call. Two died In the past year and only one of that group who marched away to answer Lincoln's call for volunteers in 1861 lived to come to this banquet, os the club's destiny of dissolution had been reached. The banquet hall had a tone of deep solemnity in contrast with those meetings before, when great feasts, with many bottles of wine brought back the old campaigners together for a day each year. "But while we looked forward to it as an honor, I know now that it shouldn't have been—instead It only makes me feel badly when I think of it." the eighty- seven year old last man said. "But it was a sacred promise and so it is up to me to carry it out." As-we read, and comment on such events being enacted over our land, right here' in Algona, not long ago was carried oub a similar incident. Instead of the bottle of wine to have a part in this covenant, money left by Jas. C. Tay~""*'*" ' B whenthe Twenty-three Hundred Acres Average $142.73. Receiver R. H, Miller and his assist' ahts have sold ftSOO ftcres of land during the past year to settle up the assets of the banks of which Mr. Miller is receiver. Of this number of acres there were four hundred acres in which the banks had only an equity. The other 1900 acres sold for $271,188 or at an overage of about $147.75 per acre. Most of the land Is located hi Humboldt county. One unimproved quarter section sold for *1B2.60 an acre. The highest price for Improved land was $165 an acre for the Edwards farm just north of Humboldt. The farm is probably one of the best improved farms in the state, and the beautiful brick house located just north of the old college site, can be seen from the Air Line road. Mrs. Paul Wille Now Home from Colorado. Mrs. Paul Wille came home Saturday from Colorado where she had spent the summer visiting relatives and friends. Her health has been greatly benefltted by her sojourn in the west. She returned with Mrs. Alfred Jentz and daughter, Irma Dee, Mrs. Donald Wille, Mrs. Harold Wille and Mrs. Herbert Gllntse, who will be remembered as Miss Nettle Wille, all of Colorado Springs, who will visit here at the George and Paul Wille homes before returning to their homes in about two weeks. Mr. and Mrs. Paul Wille, Mr. and Mrs. George Wille, Mrs. Donald Wille and Mrs. Alfred Jentz will drive to Williams, Iowa, Thursday to attend the funeral of C. J. Scott of Mendenhall, Mississippi.' " Mr. Scott's wife is a sitser of George and Paul Wille. Arrested for Driving While Intoxicated. Ross Coleman, who works for W. E. Naudain, was arrested for driving a motor vehicle while intoxicated Monday night. It seems that Coleman was driving a truck all over th° road near the tourist park last Monday evening about nine o'clock and ran head-on into a Ford sedan owned by C. O Adams and driven by .Everyl Adams, the high school foot ball captain, wrecking it quite badly. Coleman was taken before Justice A. Hutchison and was released this morning on a boid of $500 He was bound over to the grand jury but will probably be taken before Judge F. C.

Algona's young people are about to make a general exodus to the various colleges and universities in Iowa and surrounding states. Nearly a hundred boys and girls have gone or are about to leave to continue then- education in the schools of higher learning. The largest groups attend the three state schools located at Iowa City, Ames and Cedar Falls with Ames getting the largest number. Most of the students attend various colleges within the state but a few go to ouslde schools.

In other words, the dear (?) public is expected to believe that prices are 25 per cent cheaper to certain concerns while the* rest of the country is buying these commodities at about 10% less. And this applies, not to the entire run of commodities (as any fool would know) but only to a few selected lines. This is the kind of hokum which is being dished out to the American people every day and is just another case of a dizzy old world, flying around at such a terrific rate of speed that folks are simply unable to keep up with it.

Taken all In all the county fair this year was one of the 'most successful ones ever held on the grounds. The fair asoclation should be congratulated for the manner In which the fair was conducted and for the wonderful attractions and exhibits which were secured for the people of the coon* ty. It was to be regretted that the new grand stand was not in readiness for this fair but it could not be help* ed and everyone made the best of the old one. Next year they can be euro of one of the bst stands in the state. The weather was perfect for ft fair, raining only one night and, then after nearly everything was over except the DOWN WARD. We are On tho new low level right now, folks, and we are not going out with a big blaze of glory to tell you a cock arid bull story about any big CRASH. The truth of the matter is there, was a slight overproduction along certain lines which temporarib/ effected the price, but the feeling in the market is that prices will regain their former level in the very near future. So much for that. Mr. Hauberg picked up some very clever gift merchandise in Chicago and if you're giving a bridge party soon, don't fail, to see the pretty new things we have for prizes. Also some nifty number in silk underwear —a combination skirt and teddy or, something like that. The man who designs this new silk under- w;ear must be almost ready for Cherokee. A store can either sell tKe same quality 5 cpat,for a little less money or it can maintain the price and give the customer a BETTER COAT FOR THE SAME MONET. We have decided to improve the quality, which, heaven knows, hasv^been.;poo£., enough during the lasfc_f^w hectic years, but_ you are paying about the same price. You 11 actually be surprised at the dresses we are selling at $11.75. Those ^pretty clever travel tweeds, in attractive darlc^print patterns at this small price; isn't It wonderful? ^ Girls are still "raving" about the cute misses' dresses which caused such a stir last week. We have unpacked a lot of them since then and they sell almost as fast as we take them out of the boxes. We sold two fur coats in one day last week—which is quite a feat nowadays. But the fur coat business is coining back and jvhy shouldn't it when you can buy,.^good looking/lfvvell made muskrat coats at $98.00 and $145.00?% ; Really, you owe it to yourself to see the new fur coats. There is style and warmth in a fur coat which you can't, combine-in any cloth coat ever made. Come in and look them over—we won't make it so hard to get out again that you'll never want to come back. It was a great old Fair last week, only it didn't help Algona business much. But it shows people that this is a live, progressive city and where folks go for their amusement, they also go for their groceries and dry goods. They even come here to buy their shoes. Well, we are ready for you now, with complete stocks of dry goods and apparel and if you don't say CHRISOHILLES & HERBST have a "wow" of a Fall line, then'Herman and I don't know what we're talking about. And that couldn't be. VWWVWWWWlft dance. This Is unusual, to say the least, at a Kossuth county fair where It generally manages to 'rain least one day. Wants, For Sale, Etc.
