Town Says 3 LuVerne Fires Damage Garage and Two Homes Lu Verne: The garage belonging to W. H. Woito caught on flre early Wednesday morning from an oil stove which had been lighted and left in the garage. It was quite badly damaged and the paint on the car was burned and r <he windows cracked. On Friday night flre was discovered in the kitchen at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Look but was put out before much damage was done. Early Sunday morning fire was discovered In the clothes closet at the Irwin Chapman home. The fire department was called and the flre put out but all the clothes were burned. The flre is thought to have been started by a spark in a robe which had been worn while making a flre that morning. A fhort time after the robe had been hung in the closet the flre was dlcover- ed. Bowling Billiards Beer at The Hub Full Iwe of Smokers' Supplies for Christmas, "Do your Christmas shopping early" is a well known slogan the XT. S. postal officials advertise. Saturday is ;he large trading day ofr the Iowa farmer. Farmers come to town to shop and ship only to find that the post office is closed to them on Saturday afternoon. This condition should call for an investigating committee. Last evening two little girls were standing in the cold looking in at a gayly lighted store window. Roy Hilton noticed and took them inside to buy them candy. That deed is typical of Roy. He Is one "good fellow" as many a school boy and girl will testify. He has treated them daily for several years. Just a few more like Mr. Hilton and Algona will be a second heaven for the kids. Let them appreciate the good will spirit. » • • A boy walking up and down the business streets ringing a bell caught the curlosltv of another lad who stopped him and wanted to know the idea. The bell ringer stated he was advertising for a church supper. His inquisitor asked, "Why don't you yell, nobody knows what you're doing." "Well, they didn't tell me to say anything," came the reply. And so it was—the church was the loser. » t t Walter Will was hanging show bills on the board near the Naudain office when one of the Lund boys, about knee high, asked how Walt knew which show was comine and what pictures to put up. This sounds simple but asking questions and being curious Is one way to find out things for oneself. No doubt that little boy will be able to tell his pals a lot of things which he learned by observing. • • • A Swede, Norwegian and a Dutchman were talking things over as they attended the Friday night married people's dance. Louie German, who lives south of Hobarton, was the Dutchman and the other two are his neighbors. As each one gave reasons for coming ing from the old country (Louie didn't A over, although a listener would think so) one's imagination was taxed to the limit to swallow all the nice words about the mother country. Anyway the arguments left them all together In a new country and they were getting along fine. » • • AI Tweet gets around by the use of a cane. He left a store all excited and it was an hour later when a friend inquired about him not having his cane. AI was dumb-founded. He hadn't missed It. Right then AI couldn't go another step. His cane was retrieved. And AI carries a tooth brush but it's real reason is known only to a few. It's not for teeth purposes. * * * Not only Is LeRoy Davis a good telegrapher, but he was discovered to be an expert chicken culler. And chic- . kens it ft.
