Northern Natural Gas Company The pipeline serving Nalursl Qa» to your local gas company Thank you for twenty wonderful years in Algona! On our Twentieth Anniversary of starting in business, we would like to in some small way express our thanks to our customers and the community. Algona is a nice place to live, raise a family and do business. For this reason, we are replacing a sewing machine at Garrigan, Algona Community High School and St. Ann Hospital at no charge. We shall continue to operate as though each customer had put us on our honor, as sewing machine specialists, to help guide them to the best machine for them, see that they get a fair deal and will be happy with their purchase. This of course requires not only a good quality machine but also instruction and service. We have always given all the instruction wanted at no charge. This is handled by our good right arm, Mrs. Lou Shirley, who knows what is in the books and much, much more. In recent years, we have had the policy of servicing the new machine sales free in our store as long as the customer has the machine — with the good help of Rex Voyles.
