HODGEPODGE Webster—A slew of T ingredients, a mixture. BY DUANC t. DlWtl if WOULD YOU be shocked if you knew that one-third of the cigarets shipped into Algona are thrown away unused? Well, it's true. About one-third of a cigaret is discarded after the remainder has been smoked—thus one-third of the tobacco in a cig- arct is wasted. * * * • AND ITS irritating to those smokers who have been al it for years and who feel a desperate need for the weed, to see young squirts, gins, smoking. particularly the It is especially One of the first garages in Algona AYHS owned hy H. > J. Wilson and L. J. Dickinson. On January 1, 101*2, E. C. Dickinson came to Algona from (Geneva, 111., ; with his wife and two children and hougM out the 'interest of II. J. Wilson. Some time later, the firm : of L. J. Dickinson and K. (!. Dickinson built the one- ' jstorj- brick building which is now being used by Mr. '•'',. Ijoenk and which was one of the first buildings in >'.'KosMilh county built especially for the purpose of {.'selling and servicing automobiles. p This picture, taken about liH'2, shows H. C. Dickin- i* son hi the front seat of a classy job of those days ! I'(probably a Buick which sold for §1900.00) while the ;'•• important gentleman in the rear seat is "Hilly" Ln- dendorf. Kd Hartlett is shown in the background. i;i',V>I. Kohlhaas later worked in this same garage, '.'prior 1 to going into the automobile business with his •brother,' Frank. '''.'Cadillacs were also sold by this same firm for $2450.00. One of the first customers for a small car .'.was Dr. Sayers, who bought a Flanders at a very early date in automobile manufacture. At the time . this picture was taken the two Helbcrg brothers .' were the mechanics. Vew folks, hack in r.M'2, could ., hint- dreamed, of the later progress of 1he automobile industry in OK- County (there are (!(i'2;> registered : cars in Kossiith at the present time). aggravating when the oidtimer ia uuv or nearly so. f * * if TRYING TO FIGURE what was in the mind of that 26- year-old youth who shot himself in a car wmle his sweetheart, slept in the scat beside him is a real puzzle. At 26 there is so much of life ahead that it would seem even a lovesick sap could realize it. And despite all the momentary trials that bedevil mankind there are still thrills even at advanced ages that make the normal person loath to leave uus earUny spot, i'crhaps it is jecausc ol the youth of the uh- nappy fellow that he felt as he did. Those who grow older see with tneir experience that there s always something around the icxt corner. * * * K PERHAPS in the case of this youth dat old debbil love vas at trie bottom of the trouble. The boy should have read that old time philosopher who ' so sagely put the correct solution to his problems in observing that the best and most satisfactory cure tor love sickness can I be found in the arms ol another I girl. And besides in the .present manpower shortage it's a dirty tricK on the feminine population. * * * . ; ... i • FROM THIS distance it looks like quite a iness was stirr-; I cd up in DCS Moines because a slot machine dispenser wanted to get his machines clicking and I eliminate the competition. .

Funniest to those who re 1 call things in the past is th< J way Demo Chairman Jake More cries out loud in public about it JITTERBUGGING has been banned at Ottumwa, whicl is a victory for the one who pu 1 out the no no order. But the kid who get the vacant stare'and a jumping around feeling will no be much affected. The jitterbug period is gone through with during the time the kids have little sense anyway, and the great majority soon outlive it. But there are still some who marry a guy or a girl simply because the other is a good dancer, and av/ake to find that a good provider is much to be preferred as time goes on. * * * THOSE WHO feared Stalin wouldn't get along with anybody but Roosevelt and Church- j ill have seen recently that a lot of wool had been pulled over their eyes, for those two new •substitutes are carrying the ball ; with considerable success—didn't ! have as much trouble as the other two. The people of the ; world are getting over the vain hope that supermen will pull them out of the mess. Early successes of Hitler hypnotized i people into thinking only this one or that one could possibly ! do them any good. Now the re| action is setting in, and voters in England demonstrated that no one person is indispensable. x * * if REPERCUSSIONS of the column two weeks ago concerning wedding ceremonies are ! still being heard.

Inspection snowed they were sent by P.vt. Eleanor A. Fraser, a\ WAC, daughter of the late--Dr ; ,W. A.'Fraser here, and pf the. surviving Mrs. Fraser. The latter, was Rose Scott, Luverrie, before marriage. Miss Fraser is one of two assistant editors of the Sand Blast and her "by-line" appears over some of the news stories, The paper usually consists of several sheets of legal-size mimeograph paper with stenciled typing on both sides. The sheet is the newsiest of its kind yet seen here. The Algona girl is one of several youce women who had their initial training in journalism on the Advance and developed high aptitude for such work. Before entering service in the WAC Private Fraser served as selective service clerk here and then served on the' state staff. Before the war she .served for some years as curator of an organization at Philadelphia, WASTE FATS HERE JULY 6 TO AUG. 3 RISE TO 879 IBS. Waste fat salvaged in the county from July 6 to August 3 and delivered to the local receiving depot amounted to 879. pounds, or 65 less than was collected in the previous month. All fat collected last month was paid for by red tokens, which indicate that no fat was salvaged from places where 50 or more persons eat daily. As the war continues the need for fats becomes increasingly serious. No matter how small an amount of waste fa.t ,a kitchen provides it should be' saved and turned in, for. even a trifle is multiplied by. the' homes "in America to make a surprising total. If the 39,000,000 homes saved only a teaspoonful of fat daily it would total 3.CJOO.OOO Ibs. NASAL TROUBLE. Lu Verne, Aug. 6—Mrs. W. H.
