Ravings fcl- CMW* A tlMI« ot Thll, • LIHU 61 Thit; Hot Much *i Anyihtna It w«* Saturday afternoon that I done some arithmaticing regarding traffic on the main drag nt times. So 1 stopped at the rnain intersection in Algona, Dodge and State and started to do some counting of traffic and the time was 3:45, or quarter of 4 bells. 1 counted every car ot truck Which crossed the intersection in either direction and in 15 minutes there were 171 drivers and vehicles crossed that intersection. And that means that in an hour the number could reach 684, and so from 8 o'clock in the morning until the stores closed at 9:00 in the evening there could have crossed that intersection a total of 8,892 drivers in cars or trucks. Sure counts up. And supposing we arith- maticed for a week, a total of 62,244 would cross and for the month of 30 days the total would reach 1,867,320 and lor the year at that rate the total would reach 22,407,840 and that's a lot of traf- &y#!y&a&8^^ YOUR VOTE AND SUPPORT FOR HENRY S.

And just think of the gas involved if each car held 20 gallons, a total of 448,156.800 gallons and at 30c per gallon there would be spent $1,444,704,000 pennies and that's not to be sneezed at. And just think of it, these figures only cover the cars which cross that intersection, and there are millions of other inter- Sections and it just must be terrifically stupendous the gas and pennies involved in crossing intersections in this U.

Ahd 1 have dug up my last year's straw headgear and 1 found it had sort of gone haywire, crooked and bent atid 1 can't wear it, so here goes for another straw hat to cover the couple of dozen locks 1 have, and between you and 1 and the fence post those hairs or locks are getting terribly lesser in numbers, so to speak. Ken Strahorn asked me how often did I wash my hair because if 1 washed my locks f very other day they would gain in growth and strength. And with me only taking a bath July 4 and Christmas I can see how I've helped lessen my locks, so to speak. Earl Sprague tells nie that if I'd give my locks a sort of dampening every morning when 1 combed it that I'd find nice response in growing of locks, so to speak. And Ted Vera said I should give my head and locks real tubbing every morning, with both hands, and roughly, and shortly the bald spot, big as it is, would begin to lessen and he was sure there were hair seedlings on my pate and I should encourage their growth, so to speak. I was told by Ray Schil- jtioeller that the sun's rays were Very nice and that they encouraged hair growing and so maybe STRICTLY BUSINESS H. J. Cowan, Repairs 12.00 Harry L.

There was a driver from the north and a driver from the west and they reached the intersection line in their street at the same time, but they both stopped. But the driver from the north stepped on the gas and shot across the intersection even though he didn'l have the right of way. In a situation of that sort remember that the driver on your right has> the right of way and you should wait until he has crossed the intersection. Yep, it's a part ot the traffic regulations, in a traffic situation of that kind the driver on your right, according to traffic regulations, has the right "of way, and right to proceed, so to speak.

The improved 320 acre farm located 1 mi. North and 4',2 mi. East of LuVerne, Iowa, described as follows: The West Half (WVi) of Section Twenty-six (26), Range 27, being in LuVerne Township, Kossuth County, Iowa. The papers that I read of late, though they be filled with reel hot stuff, engender in my heart gome hate, 1 loudly cry "enough, enough." When o'er my coffee I would read of doings in the world at large and editors would have me heed their daily brainy word barrage, and while I wait upon my toast and sugar in my cotfee stir I hunt for news from coast to coast, from southern palm to northern fir. I read how politicians prance in search of effervescent fame and how the marathon they dance to assuage the farmer's pain. I like to read of sundry dames who by the grace of beauty's charm, grab silly men, attach their names, and alimonies later farm. And so I would my breakfast cat the while I hunt for news of sorts and faithfully throughout the sheet 1 read of' daily work and sports. But lately all the papers print some politicians homely face, no matter at what page 1 squint somebody's mug takes up the space Here's Dodo, said to knov, his oats, and all about the fann- er's plan, and what to feed the hungry shouts and how to fertilize the land. And on anothei page I find some politician's ugl> mug and in his eyes the lovelight shines, he'd save me from ; drunkard's jug. So politics, \vitl all its bunk, tills up the paper, which I read ana I'd be filled with plenty junk if polticians would heed. HAND Sgt.
