JWAVUWWJVU.V.WWAVV To Editor: There are a few things that I would like to clear up and would like the facts known to the people of this county. I understand voting machines have been ordered for use in Kossuth county. What we would like to know is: When were they voted on and who voted how? I saw in the paper once that the issue was before the supervisors. Now I would like myself and the peo pie to know who voted in favor and who against machines. Also was it brought up more than once, or voted on more than once, and how they voted. Also I know the auditor is the clerk of the board of supervisors and does not have a vote on such issues but merely takes down the minutes of the meet ings; so he couldn't have voted Sometime over a year ago saw in.the paper, that pur;.recor der was doing recording work *. A « after ner regular hours. I recal Northwest Webster-Bar- the attorney general ruled tha ents bought in 1904, and we moved into the property Feb. 14, 1905. Last spring the taxable valuation on the LOT was raised $449.00, which both my attorney and I protested. Therefore my taxes on the place this year was $35.45 more than last year. It is a large lot but no more valuable than in past years. Were I to sell the place now I doubt very seriously that I could get as much as I could MUSIC CONTEST DATED State small groups Class will be in Bode 1 Friday and Saturday for vocal and instrumen- ;al contests.

TUfnbaugh Algona Former Burt youth expert in magic tricks Burt — Stewart Burger, senior in Hamburg, N.Y., high school, has been practicing magic for eight of his eighteen years and pulling a rabbit from his hat is just one of his many tricks. When Tie was ten years olc he was given a set of children's magic tricks and in a short time he had solved all of them. He has now mastered more than 10 tricks of magic and is a frequent performer at entertainments and meetings. Skill and manual dexterity is required to prove that "the hand is quicker than the eye" and he practices an hour each day. He plans to attend college in the fall and hopes to obtain professional bookings to help defray college expenses. Stewart is the son of Mr. and Mrs. LeRoy Burger, former Burt residents. Mr. Burger was mail carrier here and is now a postal clerk in Hamburg, N.Y. Mrs. Burger is the former Verna Stewart, who graduated from Burt high school in 1929.
