S. Kinsey, county auditor, a comparison of tax warrants drawn for 1936 shows that It cost approximately $85,000 less in 1936 to run the county than it did in 1935. The biggest noticeable cut ciftne In the road maintenance and road construction expenses. It has been pointed out that this expense, of necessity, varies from year to year, but it helped out the 1936 financial statement by substantial reduction from the preceding year. The county's total cost'of government In 1938 was, however, considerably over that of 1933 and 1934. Elections Cost Money As outlined below, most of the county offices themselves, cost less to operate last year than in 1935, but the total county office expense proper shows an increase of about $6,000 over the preceding year. Much of this Is accounted for by the fact that last year was an election year, and the cost of two elections, primary and general, are included in the 1936 figure.

The commission did not give an official statement to the effect that the diagonal route through Ledyard would be followed, but observers stated that the commission seemed to believe the diagonal route was the one they would use. after looking over both proposals. Met Town Leaders The commissioners, Harry Green of Avoca, Irving Knudson of Jewell and C. L. McKinnon of New London, met with groups at both RITES TUESDAY, NICK ALTMAN, 80, HELD AT ST.

The story presumably sprang up as nn aftermath of the Gunder case, in which a grand jury investigation resulted in indictments of Mr. and Mrs. Gunder, and brought to light much of the seamy side of local life. L. A. Winkel, county attorney, denied that any of the secret grand jury testimony had revealed any connection with high school boys, as the widely-spread rumor had intimated. G. D. Shumway, president of the school board, stated that the rumor was something new to him, and that there was absolutely no foundation for such gossip. Antoinette Bonnstetter, school nurse, and closer in touch with school health than anyone else, also stated that the rumors were absolutely unfounded. The month of May has been designated as Child Health Week. The local Parents-Teachers unit will sponsor a summer round-up, and physical inspections of children, especially those entering the kindergarten or the first grade for the first time in September, will be given an examination without charge. Miss Bonnstetter will make the inspections, and where defects are found, the cases will be referred to the child's personal physician Suggestion was also made thai children be protected against smal pox and diphtheria before they enter school in the fall. The schedule for this week Is Thursday, May 6, and Friday, May 7, from 9 to 12 a. m. and 1 to p. m. in the nurse's office In th Bryant building.

Both cars were badly damaged, but the occupants escaped with minor injuries. Paul Johnson took the Corwith people home and expects to return to his home the end of the week. Eev. Wood Better Good Hope: Due to illness, Rev. AJlen Wood has been unable to care for his work at Whittemore and Good Hope the past several weeks. His pulpit was supplied by Rev.

Irvington Girl Hurt In Fall, Recovering Sexton: A report on the condition of little Shirley Cunningham, 15 months old, daughter of the Clem Cunninghams near Irvington, is to the effect that she is recovering nicely. The little girl fell 12 feet from an upstairs window some time ago, and suffered a broken leg just below the liip. The doctor said the weight could be taken from the foot in about two weeks time, but she would still have to remain in bed. Mr. and Mrs. A. L. Greenfield and daughter, Edith of Sexton, spent Sunday at the Cunningham home. SWEffflfSWfr IS HIGH SCHOOL DIAMOND CHAMP Swea City won the Kossuth county high school baseball championship, last week in-l, by deputing Burt, 3 to 2, in the final game of the series. Rain postponed the games, and the diamond at Bancroft was used to play the games Friday and Saturday of last week, instead of Burt, as originally planned, due to the wet condition of the Burt diamond. Burt defeated Grant, 4 to 2, p.nd Seneca by a 21 to 2 score Fenton, a strong contender, entered the tournament after defeating Ringsted 6 to 1. Ringsted won the Emmet county tournament the same week end. Swea City, however, defeated Fenton, 11 to 0, in a ragged game. Hanifan, Krumm and Schuler for Swea City looked extremely good at bat and in the field, and Johnson pitched a wonderful game of ball. Priebe smashed a triple for Fenton, in the third inning, for his team's only scoring threat. Tri-City Meeting, Jr. C. of C. Plan A tri-city meeting and social gathering was discussed. Monday evening, at the Junior Chamber of Commerce meeting held in the L->- gion hall.

Corwith Postmaster Is One Year Older Corwith: Postmaster J. J. Bonnstetter is one year older—58 to be exact. If there was any possibility that he might forget about it, that possibility was expelled Friday evening when a group of his friends dropped in to help him celebrate. They brought their own supper, and presented Mr. Bonnstetter with a number of gifts. Present were Mr. and Mrs. R. E. Bonnstetter and daughters, Mr. and Mrs. Lester Bonnstetter and Kay, Mr. and Mrs. E. J. Bonnstetter and children. Mr. and Mrs. J. E. Foley and Judy, Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Johnson and Kermit, and the Mayne and Gray families. Small Baby Chick Output Predicted The smallest total output of baby chicks in several years is predicted for this season on the basis of current hatchery reports, according to Chet Kurtz, manager of the local dairy and poultry plant of Swift & Company. Effect of this condition will be to improve the potential return from chicks bought now, he believes. "Government reports indicate that the size of laying Mocks on the farm is below normal at this time." he said. "This indicates in general that a comparatively light poultry crop is to be expected next fall. "JACKSON, USE A LITTLE WINE FOR VOTO STOMACH'S SAKE"—Stooping Oak, Tenn.—For fifty-one days Jackson Whitlow did fast, drinking only water.

TWO FULL TIME FIREMEN NEEDED SAY SOME FOLKS With the fate of the Call Theatre fresh in the minds of thousands of Kossuth folks, the city-wide Clean- Up Day, scheduled for last Thursday, took on a real significance, and the result was that scores of local basement were cleaned, both In :he business section and in private lomes. A visit by the Mason City fire chief miscarried, and he did not arrive to make his inspection of lo•al business places, as originally in- ended. Another phase of the cleanup \ere, was that many local wires were reported checked In business and office buildings. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Since the tragic destruction of he\ Call Theatre, historic Algona heatre, there has been considerable •omment heard regarding the necessity of purchasing another fire ngine for the city. Some citizens laim that Whittemore's new truck s superior to either one of the At- jona machines. Others are wag- ng an active campaign to put over he idea of hiring two full-time ity firemen, one for day duty and he other for night duty, f — • Gloria Faulstich, Lone Rock, Hurt Lone Rock: Gloria, four year old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W. F. Faulstich, fell while playing, Friday evening, and cut her leg just above the knee to the bone. It was necessary to take 30 stitches in the wound, and she was being treated in a prcventative manner against the danger of lockjaw infection, this week. The injury is coming along as well as can be expected considering its seriousness. Police In Trouble H. A. Van AJstync started for the fire at the Ben - Sorensen home, Wednesday morning. But instead, he turned and made a hurried trip to his own home. His pants split down the back side when he took too big a stride, H. J. Swan, Grocery Clerk, 'Admits Taking Store Money Was Known, Respected For Benevolence Toward Youngsters CAMEKMAN OX JOB WHEN GIANT SMOKESTACK TOl'l'LES—This unusual photo shows a 200-foot smokestack on the old Pcorin gnshouse as it was crumpled to earth by a wrecking crew April 30 at Pe- orin. 111. Bricks wore chiseled at the base, causing the stack to buckle and fall. 3 HURT; CARS IN COLLISION H. J. Swan, Algona grocery clerk for the past 12 or 13 years, a mild, inoffensive and near-sighted man who numbered dozens of friends, especially among the youngsters, admitted here a few days ago to the misappropriation of funds from Baldwin's I. G. A, store. Swan had clerked for about 12 years In White's Grocery, and continued clerking in the Baldwin store when the latter purchased White's Grocery. He was unmarried. During his stay here, he had been a familiar figure, Sunday afternoons, as he took his weekly afternoon stroll around the city. A relative, after .he incident, took Swan away from the city. There was no criminal charge filed against him, as he made restitution of the money From his savings account after his admission of guilt. Detective Work The private operatives make a specialty of checking the honesty of clerks In stores, and nre employed to check stores affiliated with the Independent Grocers' Alliance. Their method is simply to mako purchases from different clerks, at different times of the day, when proprietors are not In the store, and any temptation to dishonesty will have the least resistance. At the Baldwin store they made a purchase. One bought merchandise; the second watched the amount rung up in the till. It did not coincide with the actual amount of the purchase. Swan Admit* Thefts '# W. J. Bournes Back Union: Mr. and Mrs. W. J. Bourne have returned from their winter sojourn in the south and their Union friends are glad to have them back. Their trip proved very beneficial. Fire At Sorensens Fire was discovered in the Ben Sorensen home on Kennedy street, early Wednesday morning, was extinguished before the department arrived. No great damage was done. Blood Transfusion For Fairville Boy Fenton: Billie Bruhn, 2, son of Mr. and Mrs. Ervin Bruhn of Fairville. underwent a blood transfusion at the Mayo hospital at Rochester last week Friday. The blood was taken from his mother, tattle Billie had two abceses on his wind pipe and be ha* been fed through Harrington, delegate, to the Conn-1 the none. At this writing be is | getting along nicely. Farmer, Laborer and Prices (AN EDITORIAL) The discussion of prices for retail commodities today is almost as common as the discussion of a few years ago relative to the low price of farm products. Increases in the retail price of most products have already taken effect, not to any startling degree, but a few cents here and a few cents there—enough so that we know we are paying more for our retail goods than we did two or three years ago. It would be well, before we condemn any increase in retail prices, to sit down together and study the cause and effect of these. Three years ago farm products brought very little. One of the big reasons was because the laboring man. the city worker, had little, if any, buying power. Efforts were made to alter this in such a way that the laboring man of the city would again become a buying power, and could purchase the farmers' products. The laboring man today is a buying power; the industrial troubles we are now going through are more or less a sifting process, and we hope they will eventually bring about a stabilized and fair wage scale for a!3 industry without violence or bloodshed. But. with the increase in payrolls, and of raw materials, costs rose. This cost increase has been passed on. as we know, and is being pro-rated among those who purchase. Corn just a few years ago was as low as eight cents a bushel: other farm products brought correspondingly low returns, less than the cost of production by far. Although we still have many farm problems 'to solve, fairer prices are here, due in a large part, to increased buying power in the ranks of the working man. The links of the chain are connected. When our own individual prosperity begins to return, when we get better prices for what we have to sell, then it is natural that we must, in turn, pay a slightly increased price for the manufactured products we purchase. Only by having a good price for agricultural products, a fair wage for labor, and a fair margin of profit for the manufacturer and retOler, can sustained prosperity be achieved. And that, we believe, U the goal we are all seeking. John Haack, Fenton, and Hans Baago, Ringsted, Are Injured Fenton: Three persons were injured in a hend-on automobile collision, Saturday night, one and a iialf miles northwest of Fenton. One of the injured, Leona Baago was being taken by hor father, Flans Bnago of Ringsted, to n doc:or for treatment of injuries received In an auto accident four weeks ago, while she was in a rroup of students on their way to i music contest. Leona had four :eeth knocked out In the Saturday accident, and received a fractured upper jaw, besides bruises and was suffering from shock. Mr. Baago was driving his car for the first ime since it was repaired from the previous accident. Baago was cut about the face. John Haack of Fenton was driving the other machine, and he was injured also, receiving cuts about the face. Sheriff Casey Loss of Algona investigated. It took a wrecking car to pull the two machines apart, and both were badly damaged Leona, a senior in the Ringsted high school, will be unable to attend school the remainder of the school term.

He was unable to name the exact amount which he had appropriated during that time, but It was understood that the sum waaj returned to the store, from Swan'a personal savings account, which was of considerable aize. W. A. White, former employer of Swan, had little to say about the affair, or whether or not Swan had admitted having taken any fund* from the store when It waa under White's ownership. The admission of misappropriation of funds was a distinct shock to many local residents. Swan ha,l been extremely interested in children and was known to have been partially helping to finance the education at the state university of a local young man. Swan was about to purchase an automobile from a local dealer at tho time the store discovered the shortages.
