MILLIONS HAVE READ THIS GREAT NOVEL I WtlUrFUGEON MMI*M 9*1411 -lunmn HDiinssmn 1. § HMVTimE COPYOFB, F, REED HISTORY SOLO FOR $15 If the late B. F. Reed could know, he would be greatly interested to learn that 29 years after publication anyone would be sufficiently interested in his history of Kossuth county to pay $15 for the two-volume set. Recently R. S. McWhorter, prominent south of Burt farmer, saw a copy of the first volume. A n unusually well informed man, he had by some chance not known that such a volume was in existence, or if he had once known of it had forgotten the fact. Born and reared in the county, Mr. McWhorter either knew personally or knew about many, if not most, of the people mentined in the books, and he became so interested that he called at the Advance office and had a blind want ad for a set run in last week's paper. There are many copies of the history in the county but copies for sale are scarcer than hen's teeth, and neither the Advance nor Mr. McWhorter entertained much hope that the advertisement would unearth one; but it turned out that Albert Butterfield, formerly of Irvington but now farming in the North End, had one that he was willing to part with, and he brought the set down Saturday. It was delivered to Mr. McWhorter Sunday, and a check in payment has doubtless been by now received by Mr Butterfield. Here'* Bouquet for the Plum Creekers Des Moines,'Feb. 10 — Plum Creek township, Kossuth county, was among 122 township Farm Bureaus honored last week by the Farm Bureau Federation for outstanding work during the past year and awarded a special certificate of merit in the superior and standard township pro- • ject. Twenty-one townships re-! ceived superior ratings, while • 101, among which was Plum I Creek, received standard town-1 ship certificates, which are is-1 sued for carrying on a program j calling for regular meetings and accomplishments. 6IRL FROM LONE ROCK IS A SPEEDY TYPIST Des Moines, Feb. 10 — Helen Mae, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. A. H. Hanna, attending the \ American Institute of Business! here, recently wrote 67 words a minute with only two errors in ten minutes. She also typed a perfect one-minute test at a rate of 97 words a minute. The ten- minute test made her eligible for the International Honor Society for Business Education. The test was given over new material, and it was the first • time she had competed in a con-' test of this kind. The test was supervised by Kathi-yn Holland, one of the executive members of the International Honor Society. Miss Hanna was gradjnted from the Lone Rock high srhool j in 1941, and in school was active I in basketball, a glee club, a girls' sextette, and class plays. THE PREACHING MISSION WILL BEGIN SUNDAY The city-wide "preaching mission," a union project sponsored by the Algona Ministerial Union and the Algona churches, will begin Sunday night at 8 o'clock, when the first service will be held at the Baptist church, with the Rev. Willis K. Williams, pastor of the Congregational church at Spencer, as speaker. The ministers of the cooperating churches will assist in the service, and Mr. Johnson, instructor of music in the high school, will be song-leader for the whole preaching mission. There will be services every night next week except Saturday, each night in a different church with a different speaker. The whole community, regardless of creed or denomination, is invited to attend all meetings, and large crowds are anticipated. A loud-speaking system will be installed in the basement of the churches to care for overflow crowds. The meetings will mark the beginning of Lent and will give the people of Algona the opportunity to join the "back to the church movement," and the "spiritual defense" program which is making itself felt in the nation. The schedule of meetings and the speakers for the "preaching mission" were published last week. —Buy Defense Bonds— Extra Savings! Extra Fine Foods!
