LAST TIME Near Brill, the school bell at Erin No. 9 has rung for the last time. Established in 1888, it has now been abandoned. More than 250 persons attended a final reunion on the school grounds recently. John, 'Stu', Lawrence A 20-Year Working Trio Cigarmaking used to be quite a trade in Algona. The site of the most famous factory, the Smoke Shop, is still going strong —although not as a producer of cigars. John Beiser and his crew still sell lots of them, plus other important items* of everyday life, but production costs forced cessation of the manufacture of stogies April 6, 1939. Mr Beiser has the last G & B (Guderian & Beiser) Special produced by the firm on display, wrapped up in celephane with the well-known gold band still intact. At the time when items were being collected for lock-up in the cornerstone of the new Kossuth Countv courthouse. John was approached by Supervisor S. D. McDonald, who suggested it would make a choice item. The keep-sake was retained by Eeiser. John became sole proprietor ot the Smoke Shop in 1935. but his connection with the cigar industry began in 1906. That's when he learned the cigarmaker's trade. He and Lou Guderian went into business in 1914. and the partner- ship turned out cigars in quarters over the States Cafe. Following a fire, the company moved to a new location, and again moved before going into the present Smoke Shop site. That was in 1919 after John returned from 17 month's duty in the army during World War 'l. From that time on, they turned out the G & B Special, and later the famous Nick-Less brand, which was thought up by Dr. C. M. Cretx.meyer, until 1939. A Wisconsin firm manufactured the Nick-Less cigar for several years following, but finally discontinued it. When John took over in 1935, Win Scott, Frank Metzler and E. A. Guderian were employed making cigars. Stew McFadden worked in the front and Lawrence Gillespie managed the magazine stand. John, Stew and Lawrence still hold down the fort, and the fourth man is Al Slobe. Baseball chatter is one of the main forte of the entire Smoke Shop staff. John is a Cardinal man through and through, Lawrence loves the Tigers, and Stew goes for the Cubs. A daily score- noard of results of. all the major league games is kept up to date, and furnishes plenty of ammunition for lengthy arguments. When John was asked if he was evci H'omg to smoke that last G & B Special, he replied "I don't think I'm strong enough to take it." A Hi-year old cigar would be a rugged opponent. Cily'sWater Demands Up, But Supply O.K. In many Iowa cities, hot and humid days of summer have caused water consumption to jump to a point where the city supply has become endangered. The Upper Des Moines contacted Algona Municipal Supt Jim Palmer to see if any such situation exists or is in dangei of exisiting in Algona. According to Mr Palmer's records water consumption ha? jumped quite a bit over last year. Over 500.000 more Gallons' of water wore used this June than June. 1954. In July. 1954 People used 13.838.400 gal of water, and at the present rate of consumption, this Ji.ily promises to be even larii'T. Accorriiit.a tr.
