A little note of three weeks ago enoting the relative conditions of busy night at the liquor store, vas cause for an invitation to visit lie place and see and learn the facts f its operation. Manager Sherman ourteously explained the opening nd closing times, the hours worked y each man. the unloading of cases, le reports to be made out nnd the reatment of customers. The store loses at nine o'clock each night nd this time is strictly adhered to. There is no closing the door in a ustomer's face. About three min- tes to nine the clerk in charge ooks up and down the, street and nyone waiting is invited to step nside. However, there are those ho are always late. From thirty econds to a half hour after the door s locked people try the door, holler n. beg and barter but to no avail, 'he door is NEVER opened again o admit a man. The clerks go to work at nine in the morning. They must restock the shelves, check each eparate bottle, make out reports and a daily invoice. Oftentimes heir work is completed before el- iven o'clock, the opening hour. iVhen this occurs the door is opened and customers are served, from nine to nine is a matter of ,welve hours. Twelve hours is a day's work and the boys feel they have done It. In keeping with the state laws, Mr. Sherman is required to revoke a permit Issued to sarties who abuse it or take one rom a person not entitled to possess one. This one man can cause more trouble and create more discontent than a dozen men can patch up. His abusive words are directed at the employees of the store, men who are faultless nnd not to blame.

Signs every mile on each side of the road warn you to keep off the shoulder because of the new seeding. The aw as It is more or less understood compels a driver to use the shoulder when stopping. How nice It would be to drive off the pavement in town on to gravel roads without dropping four or five Inches Into holes. Still nicer to drive onto the pavement from gravel, one gets such bigger bumps. Such negligent cost, too, a load or two or gravel and a man to tamp Memories or sleet, soft sr.ow and ice as we watched Milton Dahl with a shovel supplying dirt between his auto tires and long juicy grass.

Editors Algona Upper Des Moines and TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN: We are old enough in the world to know that sometimes people with a desire for stirring up trouble will go to any means to do so, and we have also known for some time that some of our public officials have little to do in their working hours. But several days ago, when a party of eight, including one county, one city and six state men ar- j rived at our farm, and proceeded to search the premises 1'ur liquor, v^e were more than just surprised— we were floored. The fact that they found no liquor was easy to explain: there was none to be found, and there wuuld nut have been any laat, nor will there be any next week, or the week after. We are not storing or supplying liquor to anybody, and it makes us plenty hot, as good, conscientious American citizens, to have a bunch of officers drop in and give us a good going over. But then, the world is made up of all kinds of people, and perhaps we had better just laugh it oft. But for the sake of whoever sent in false reports about us, we advise them to keep their distance from our property. YANSER BROS. George and Ralph.
