' 19, 19$4 CttHlS REESB A urn* <* tmt, • uuu 6* th»li Net Much at Haw many 6f you can *emem- ' ber a session of mist and rain and mud.such as we have experienced here"; the past six weeks?- The weather man has sure given us plenty moisture, so to speak. And according to the state fire marshal's office the past six weeks have been the lousiest in years. And' now-we Have ihe -falling of leaves and here it is so damp that those leaves in my lawn just stay there instead of being blown off, and 1 hereto rake'em. However, there is one angle about the falling leaves and dampness that's Worth thinking about. Accord- *lng to the state fire marshal's office the rainy sessions have prevented much of fires. The report i,has it that in the dry September [of 4S53 there were 55 grass fires (reported which'made a fire loss of $34,000. And during the wet. 1954 September there were only three grass fires reported with a loss of $400. In the dry October of 1953 there were 58 grass fires reported bringing a damage ol $37,900. And in the damp October so far of 1954 there has nov been a single grass fire reported. So, after all, maybe we shouldn't holler too much about the rains we've ' been experiencing this month. —o— Mow Ihe city has a speed analyzer. And, boy, am -1 for it? You tell 'em. Algeria has some of the speediest gents, always in a hurry to get somewhere even if there wasn't anything to do when they got there, so to speak. I live on South Minnesota and that has been one of the best speedways in Aflgona—35 i|nd over seeming to be the travel for most of drivers. Now with the speed analyzer on the job there is sure to be some hesitating about high speed on this street. It seems that the speed analyzer consists of two rubber tubes which are stretched across the street and a machine records the time interval between the wheels crossing the tubes. And there you have it, a check on the milage you're making, and a shor}. distance from the tubes an officer hails you to a stop and so you REPORT OF CONDITION OF EXCHANGE STATE BANK 'of Weiley, Koiiuth Counly, Iowa, al the eloie of bu»lne«» on Oct. 7, 1954, £l6 Ihe Superintendent of Banking,'State of Idwa . • ' . - ASSETS [ 1.

Johnson, Notary Public My commission expires July 4, 1057 REPORT OF CONDITION OF IOWA STATE BANK are registered and a fine is the result. I Was told that the first day's operation of the analyzer brought about 30 tickets into hands of drivers and accordingly a fine for speeding. I'm sure that the gent who is always in a hurry to gel some place and just doesn't read the speed limits signs will from now on keep,'a close watch for the two rubber tubes and so hold his motor within the mileage speed accordingly. Oh yes, the installation of the speed analyzer will no doubt just, about break the hearts of a goodly, number of Algona drivers, so to speak, •—o— Yep, ihe political campaign is on in earnest, no'w and it was one night last week that I attended a session held by the democrats and there sure was a crowd, indicating that there are a lot of we democrats. Oh yes, I'm a democrat and it is one thing that I think of'and believe in and never a face blush about it, either. And I must have always been a good democrat because on account of it was irt' 1932 that Marshall county elected me a state senator. And Marshall county is, and always has been, "predominantly republican and it was the first time in the history of Marshall county t.hat a democrat had ever £>een elected to a state or district office. And I was that democrat-and so I must be a good democrat 01 the republicans sure would never have elected me, so to speak. And two weeks from today I'm going to vote democratic again. But I'm getting used to .putting a square in the demo ballot, so to speak. ,—o— Oh yes, just a few minutes ago a friend called me but he asked me not to mention his name, but he had a record of. the rainfall in inches from the first of August to the middle of October last year and which amounted to only .1.4 inches. And this year during the same period from the first of Aug. to the middle of October there has been a downpour of 15.5 inches. And he is of the opinion that there will be another couple of inches yet, before Hallowe'en. And maybe he's got something there. At any rate he admits ;hat it's too much of a good thing ;o have 15.5 inches of dampness in two months and a half. I agree with him. And Soup Briggs tells me that if the rainfall had consisted of snow.we would, have had over six feet of the white flakes and daily snow Shoveling would have been the joy durfng the wet six weeks period. Yes, Soup loves snow and he tells me that the snow shoveling exercise he gets in the winter time is the finest and'fnost healthful kind of exe»» cise for him. Ibf Algona.
