: V Algona (Id.) Upper Des ;tufltfay, June 1, faring* CHRIS REESE A lliil* •ot Thll, a Lliil* ot T»»I; Noi Much ot Anyihlao. one 'day last week that I received a letter from Hurt, Written by a Burt resid<5rit arid for a nickel I'd print his name but he wrote that if I did he would stop, taking the paper arid so would his dad; and several neighbors, so 1 print his letter and yoU guess who ' the scribbler was. Dear Mr. Rees— I just thot I'd drop yu a line about we think of the meter del in Algona. If meters ar put in yu ar sur losing a lot of trade becaus we dont favor diging up to park the bus that nijtel we ar askd to ad to, a cup of cofe. And yur stor kepers ar sur to mis us, too. And I am a farmer and I hav ben told by farmers that ther deling will go to LuVern, Swe City, Whitemof. St. Jo, Wesle, Titonka, Lakota insted of get- ing groceris and suplis from Algona delers. I stil cant Se wher meters in Algona wud be a mony making del for the town. ,1 agre that meters ar practicalin biger to\vns but Algona can not be clased With De Moin or Su City or Minneapolis and so the parking in yur tbwn is not a serius deJ like in the biger towns. I stil claim meters in Algona is sily and wud sur hurt bisries a big lot."- : •; . There you have it, that gen: 'sure had-some good talk againsi meters. And I got a kick out o: his' spelling in the letter and ''. supppge he's one of the society f&f-the rotsuse of letters in pronunciation ahcTwjiting, etc. And 1 couldn't/help >doing some arith- maticing.and counted the letters he 'saved, and they amounted h 74 and he sure i§ art ink'or'penci saver, so to speak. • - .—o— Fred Geigle's lawn and yart are the cleanest in the city from a dandelion standpoint. There i not one single dandelion blossorr or root on the lot. I happened by one day last week and there was Fred plying a ha*nd tool tna just picked ;out the dandelion root and all, and he had tw baskets full of the growths. An' when he had finished the dande lion elimination he had 1 , filled ten bushel baskets and that's quite '" heap. I asked him had he count ed the roots he had dug up.-an he guessed'ther, . were at least near a hundred pe/ basket. And 1 would have guessed almost twice that many. But here's one thing that Fred has:*ac- corfiplished *— next year there probably won't be one single dandelion on his property. And from that standpoint his job of digging 'em sure was worth while. And wouldn't it be something if everybody in town would do the same stunt? That way there would be no yellow shadea lawns next year. It was one day last week while I was gulping a cup of coffee that a gent and his wife dropped in ana they too took to gulping their coifee and tney were su 100 per cent perfect in their coffee gulping t^at I at once signed them up in the Amalgamated Association of Coffee Gulpers. And they were Mr and Mrs Henry Sunken, living in German township, getting their mail out of Titonka. And Mr Sunken admitted reading my bunk in the UDM weekly and so far he said his mental and physical condition had saved him from effects by reading the column. He told me he was a German and so I asked him had German township been named after him but he said the township was there before he landed there. He also admitted that there were a Jot of coffee gulpers in his neighborhood and they were all experts at coffee gulping, coffee cup holding, stance in linger bending, and there never was a slirp heard in that township. Sure glad to sign him up in the gulpers, so to speak. Just to be doing some arith- maticing I checked the report of the state department of public safety, especially the drivers license division, and I found that there had been 102 licenses revoked through the week because of driving while intoxicated. There were 9 on Sunday, 12 on Monday, 10 on Tuesday, 17 on Wednesday, 21 on Thursday, 10 on Friday and 23 on Saturday so it looks like me last day in the week is the favorite day for drivers to get tignt. And for three months now those drivers can take on then- sips as they wish because on account of they can't take the car out and go places—they have no license, so to speak. At that the percentage is not so high with 10.2 revocations because on account of that means only about one to each county. But even at that this is too much—there should never be any driving with liquor as tops at the wheel. Undergoes Surgery Bancroft — Dick Dudding, son of Mr and Mrs M. F. Duddang underwent surgery at Holy Family hospital Friday. Court Judgment District court was exceedingly quiet, the past week. Only activity recorded was a judgment decree issued Friday by Judge G W- Stillman for $433.05 and costs in an action brought by the Zipp Mfg. Co. against Browns Dairy. ALL-MODERN! ALL-INVITING!
