The Minneapolis journal has been asked to Send a photographer to photograph this unusual Assembly of men for their photogravure Section. It is understood that Austin has made similar arrangements for the Minneapolis Tribune. Without question this meeting will be one of the largest if not the largest menus mass meeting Ever held in Albert Lea. It is expected that the old Home town loyalty and co operation for which Albert Lea is so Well known will assert itself tomorrow and that the Broadway theatre will be filled to capacity. Re Mem a Ber the time 9 45, sunday morning. No admission will be charged. All seats Are free. Austin citizens believe honors will be won easily by them get out and help make Albert Lea victorious. When about three weeks ago the men Bible class of the Baptist Church of Austin challenged the men s class of the first Baptist Church of this City to an attendance contest to close the last sunday in april no one dreamed the contest would create the interest or grow to the proportion which it has now ass ment. The Austin class ambitious to build up an organization which they can advertise As the largest menus class in the state has been Irving hard and have succeeded in doubling their usual attendance several times. The local men have not been Idle and As the contest now stands the two groups Are about even. Unusual interest has been created i it a both cities in fact it is no i w4�a i by is Sci Teul read a new York metropolitan builders have a Peculiar habit of laying the Brick in upper stories of sky scrap Jors before the Walls of lower stories Are started. Many visitors who Are told of this refuse to believe it without ocular demonstration. Evidence is plentiful. The great i beams of j the steel Frame construction Are self explanatory As to How it is done. The Why is not so evident a but it is said that the Bottom Walls Are delayed until protective sidewalk tunnels can be removed in order to avoid interference with the work. Suburbanites who moved away from City crowds Are now boasting a five years ago mine was the Only House on this the Street playgrounds of the teeming East Side offer Many Dan Mger a class contest.

Different positions or promotions Are the High spots because they serve to measure a Many a Progress from the Point from which he started. # it is this satisfaction in the distance travelled rather Thau in the Point arrived at that Belows the greatest pleasure. It is perhaps fortunate that the great majority of us take much More satisfaction in passing the of livers of our past or the truck loads of our slow moving associates than we take dissatisfaction in the thought of the limousines still ahead of us on the Road of life. This Progress spells for each ration of the inner mental Man. In a world of a a jobs All of us must adapt ourselves first to the conditions which we must meet for the earning of our living and then with the time we have left we should set about living our True Many live to eat but the truly ambitious eat to live. Too Many Young people take the first Job offered provided it will yield $3 per Day. A Job for which they have no interest in apart from the pay envelope and when it is too late to change they realize that it is a Blind Alley leading to no advancement or Progress. The Worth while Job is that which will enable you to develop your Powers and your skill. The Standard bred Trotter by or. M. R. Higbee track.

Scout news Harry Nelson editor to 1 19%. The trotting and pacing gaits Are interchangeable. Many horses have taken fast records at both gaits but nearly All double gaited horses As we Call them prefer one gait to the other and the gait of their Choice is As a Rule the faster. Dan Patch 1 55 14 Seldom showed any desire to Trot. His sire Joe Patchen 2 01 1-4, also a super pacer was double gaited and like Many pacers took nearly All i slow work on the Trot and his own wits and kindness and it was late in the season before Seeley ventured to try him in a race.
