BEN FRANKLIN Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year Christmas Greetings to all our friends and patrons for 1937! We enjoy your patronage. Algona Coffee Shop Fred Jacob, Proprietor. W. V. BUTLER, Ownei| Notice To Auto Owners of the City of Algona Why it is you have to use the street for all night parking when you have available your own private drive or garage'? Parking on the street is becoming a hazard. A good many haven't the decency to even move their car after a snowfall so the snowplow can clear the street properly of snow. At least use a little common sense and move your car so the plow will not have to go around it and leave a bank of snow. Please cooperate, or you will find your car towed to some garage and costs assessed to you. Yours for co-operation, C. F. SPECHT, Mayor City of Algona. 1 TOV CLEAN-UP SALE DRASTIC PRICE REDUCTIONS!
