The Algona Upper Des Moines Inquire at The Algona Upper Des Moine* office for partiuelars Want Ad. You Quick It* AN EXPLANATION Customers at the store keep tusking about the black mark over my eye. To all parties concerned I will say it ia a birth mark. On my way to Chicago last week I got Into the wrong berth on the sleeper. I got to Chicago without any further mishaps <ind met my Jewish friend, Harry Kalvon. The first thing he aeked me was how much money I could spare. I told him I never carried any money but would give him a check that would puss in ell the banks until it got to Algona. He had nearly $5.000.00 worth of goods set aside for me. The first thing he offered was 45 dozen sweaters. Men's women's and children's, worth at wholesale from ja.OO to $18.00 a dozen. H« wanted $8.00 a dozen for them, but I finally got them at $0.50. It ia one of the best buys I ever made. Next was 50 dozen hockey caps, regular wholesale price, $4.50. I got them at $2.25 a dozen. Then came 62 dozen children's mittens, all sizes, all colors, in brushed wool. It took a heart to heart talk to get these for $1.50 a dozen. My little friends are going to have warm hands this winter whether they have 16c or not. Next on the program was 74 dozen all-wool neck scarfs. I remembered paying a traveling man $4.50 a dozen for the same scarfs from the same mill so I took them at $3.00 a dozen without making much of a fuss. Then to the basement where there were 200 pairs of boys' and youths' 4-buekle overshoes, men's mud rubbers, and 300 dozen children's cotton hose. This came near being a fist-fight, but I got them all. Lunch time— a highball— a good beefsteak. and back to work. From there on it was this, that, and another. Men's underwear, dress shirts, neckwear, odd pants, ladies' ecarf sets, snuggles, ladies' silk hose, and to on and so on. Five o'clock I was through and ready for home. I never stay in Chicago over nigbt. It is too expensive and 1 am afraid of the- tall buildings. On the train I met an old flame. A girl I used to go with 50 years ago. At that time she was with the Andrews Opera Co. and Tommy Ryan and I were running a black face minstrel show. We bad a very nice- visit. She lives at Peoria •lid wanted me to stay over. Peoria Is a nl ,ce town to vlalt In, but I wag afraid people in Algoiia would find it out so, believe it or not I came right straight home.
