McDonald has been one of the leading citizens of Hurt, and in the thick of every project for the betterment of the community. And now Uiat thn winter months are here, there is more than one resident of the Burt vicinity who is looking forward to the annual winter bridge session at the McDonald Lumber office. For example, there are C. C. Smith, George Koestler and G. W. Blelch, among others, who sort of saunter In on cold days, warm their toes by the stove, and generally end up by getting into a good, healthy, competitive bridge game. And, along with his civic and business activity, Mr. McDonald has given his allegiance to the democratic party for these many years—and today has the pleasure of seeing his party taking the reins for a change. Not that he has ever been an office seeker— quite the contrary. He served on the Burt city council and school board for many years and helped to build the first telephone system in that community. Graveling of the city streets was another project into which he Jirew Ills energy. But other than that he has been content to enjoy life, rear a. family of four children, and let politically-minded individuals seek the office pies. Reared upon his father's farm In Illinois, and later in Iowa, for a time, he carried on agriculture of his own accord. In 1900 he succeeded his brother, John In the lumber and building material business, and is still concerned with the business. In 1891, Mr | McDonald was married in Humboldt, Iowa, to Miss Ida Chapin, a native of Kossuth county. There are four children in the family, C. E. McDonald of Sioux City, Iowa, D. L. and Jack, who ate in business in Algona, and Maxlne, who is married and living at Northampton, Mass. O. P. McDonald Mr. McDonald's optimism is one of tils strongest characteristics, and probably accounts in part for his wide acquaintance and warm friendships. His phllosohpy of life seems to say: "Smile and the world smiles with you, frown and you frown alone." And, although Mr. McDonald owned five cars, he has never driven one— which might be explained by the statement of his two sons, Dud and Jack in Algona, who stated With a smile that they both learned to drive automobiles while very young. Thousands Saw Santa, Enjoyed Big Algona Christmas F estiva Coupons, iFree Children's Paradise Titonka, Ledyard, Burt and Armstrong Ha,ve,Many Applicants for Job Man's Nose Pierced by Splinter in Crash An unusual and nearly tragic accident happened about 6 p. m., Monday, just south of the Hansen oil station on the Burt road, highway 169. J. W. Speraw of Algona was driving south, hauling a trailer load of hay. Two Minneapolis men, George E. Thompson and John Young, were driving north. The trailer in some manner collldtd with the automobile occupied by the two men. A splinter from the side of the trailer went through the windshield of the northbound car, and pierced Thompson's nose, Just a few inches from his eye., The piece of wood went entirely through his nose. Dr. W. T. Peters of Burt gave medical aid. The two men were driving in a machine with shatter-proof glass, and although tjie wood went through the windshield, It did not shatter it, and .his fact probably saved them both from severe and possible fatal cuts. It seems that the postpfflce plums in this vicinity are getting riper every day and the faithful democrats are presenting their claims to the new democratic administration for political preferment. A total of 46 candidates have applied to the civil service commission for entrance to the examinations for six postmasterships in this vicinity. On December 18, vacancies occur in the postoffices at Armstrong, Burt, Ledyard, Titonka, Lehigh and Renwick.

Wentz, Nathaniel Walsh and Mrs. Clara M. Bruns. The Titonka postoffice pays $1700 per year, and is considered a juicy plum in these NRA days. Armstrong Office Pays $1900 Candidates for the $1,900 position at Armstrong are: Fred W. Davies, Bert L. Clark, LaVerne E. Mclntire, Bert O. Peterson and Nona L. Link.

Trades in Store on 160 Acre Farm Titonka: Anton Pannkuk traded bis general merchandise store here for a 160-acro farm near Blooming Prairie, Minn. The deal was closed Tuesday, and immediate possession of (be store was taken by Gust M. Johjwn. The deal fa a unique one in this section. While several thousand delighted children and adults alike looked on, Santa Glaus and his helpers came to Algona last Thursday and paraded through the streets in a procession re- splendant with color and lots of the Christmas atmosphere. The parade formed at the court house promptly at one o'clock, on schedule, when Miss Lucille Elsenbarth of St. Benedict, was crowned as Miss Mary Christmas. It was the first announcement of the winner. The other contestants followed Miss Eisenbarth In this order and had the following vote totals: Lucille Eisenbarth, St. Benedict 731,481 Betty Barry 714,400 Donnie Quinn 483,137 Jane Hemphiu 353,429 Rachel Clapsaddle, Burt 225,356 Marion Corey 189*478 Gertrude Long 98,830 Norma Greiner 74,715 Arlene Holdren 73,048 Ruth McKee 72,513 Elma Krueger, Fenton 62,764 Irene Dreager 57,996 Josephine Chubb 44,891 Catherine Streit 41,870 Betty Sheridan, Bancroft 28,005 Marcella Cullen, Whittemore 27.484 Valeria Plckett 25,803 Frances Kunz, Wesley 15,568 Lumetta Mae Reece, Elmore .. 13,190 Vera Biggings, LuVerne 8,075 Alice June Calry, Whittemore .. 7.975 June Larson, Swea Ctiy 4,650 During the remainder of the day, and after the parade, Santa Glaus and his helpers were stationed at the log cab- In on the court house square, where each child personally met Santa Claus, and received a sack of candy and a new penny. The coins were the gift of the Iowa State Bank. A musical program of chimes, orchestra numbers and vocal selections were broadcast during the afternoon and evening from a room in The Algona Hotel. The loudspeaker was located on top of the water tank, and the clear notes could be heard over the entire city. The distribution of balloons from the lei? cabin of Santn with counons attached which entitled the flnder to merchandise gifts in local stores, also kept the action going at a lively pace, as did the throwing of live chickens and turkeys from Alpona buildings during the afternoon. The scramblrs that resulted were the cause of much merriment and excitement. At the Call Theatre, where Manager N. C. Rice held three free matinees for children, a merry crowd of youngsters assembled. There was little doubt but that the 1933 Christmas celebration was one of the best that Kossuth county has witnessed and nothing but praise was given the efforts of the Aleona Community Club for its lively program. A sneclal committee headed bv Ralph Miller assisted the reeular officers of the organization with the work. E. O. Rancher, D. Wayne Collins and Hugh Post were the other members of the committee. Store Pecb Algona, the Christmas City! Extensive street and store building decorations make Algona one of the brightest and most beautifully decorated of the smaller cities in Iowa for the Yuletide season—and Roy McMahon had quite a bit to do with it. Roy figured out last year that a combination of evergreen roping arid multi-colored elctrlo lights wpuld give the Iowa State Bank corner a holiday appearance, so he put his Idea over for the 1932 season. This year the same type of decoration Is being used for about half of the business houses in the city. But you'll have to come to Algona and see for yourself.

Ford V-8, rounded a curve In the road, and apparently did not see the truck, which was of a semi-trailer ;ype. The truck, according to the driver, Weldon Weise, had broken Its axle, and he had lit three flares, one in front and one behind the truck, and the third at the side of the vehicle. There was also some comment to the effect .hat flares were not lighted until after the accident. It is because of these onflicting reports that the coroner's ury will conduct an investigation.

Johnson was thrown clear of the machine and was found lying on the pavement about ten feet away. Simpson was caught in the car and was found in the front seat, where he met instant death. The rear end of the truck was badly damaged by the impact. The car presented a gruesome death trap, and the highway was blocked with wreckage.
