Leaves Name Above Reproach to be Cherished By His Family A weak stomach and general debility caused the death or one of Algona's- prominent citizens last Wednesday shortly before noon, when Archie Hutchison died at his home on East State street after an illness of two weeks. His death came as a shock to most people, only a~ comparative few o* whom ; knew of his serious illness. Archie, who Would have been 76 years old had he lived till March 7 next, was born in Omagh, Ulster county, Ireland, In 1862. His parents were pure blood Scottish people who emigrated to Jfbrth Ireland. He came to America while a young man of 18, and secured work at Mineral Point, Wisconsin, where an uncle lived. He came to Algona in 1883, at the age of 21. His sole capital was ambition and industry and a determination to get on in the world. ' He soon saved enough to give him a start at Cornell College where he • worked his way through a four-year course. For a time after college he joined forces with the late W. C. Danson and Edgar Butler in the real estate and loan business. Afterwards he was in partnership with E. J. Gilmore. Large Land Owner Archie studied law in his spare moments and was admitted to practice In 1896. For the past 40 years he practiced law and in the meantime his real estate business grew to large proportions and In the boom years his investments in land and other interests mounted high, making him at his death one of the wealthiest men in Kossuth county, owning over 1,000 acres of unencumbered farm land. During the past few years he turned over his law business to his two able sons, Donald and Theodore, and devoted most of his time to his real estate and other intersts. Besides the two sons and the widow there are two daughters surviving, Dorothy of Evanston, Illinois, and Mrs. Isabel Drummond of Chicago, and a number of grandchildren. Mrs. Hutchison, before her marriage was Miss Edith Call, daughter of Ambrose A. Call, Algona founder. Other sisters of Mrs. Hutch- inn are Mrs. Gardner Cowles and Mr».

Chief of Police Frank Green stated Monday. His campaign to tone down the Saturday night "sprees" In this vicinity resulted because of Incidents that occurred last Saturday "night, in which police officers collared several persons who were drunk and broke up several gangs of youths from 18 to 20 years of age who were either Intoxicated or pretending to be, and causing all sorts of commotion and trouble on Algona streets into flie small hours of Sunday morning. Green said that he followed one group of young men to the Norton Lumber corner, about midnight, and that before they discovered his presence they Indulged In obscene language, and participated in indecent actions and language that have landed them In jail. However, because of their age end because it was their first offense, he let them off with a warning. Two arrests were made Saturday night. Ed Llchter was sentenced to 10 days in the county jail by Mayor C. F. Specht, Monday morning, on charges of drunkenness, and Mike Pfeffer, Algona, was fined $10 and costs on the same charge. Chief Green said that he has found that usually the folks making all the noise are not nearly as drunk as they may pretend, and straighten up in a hurry when stopped. However, he declared that gangs of youngsters who could not behave, no matter who they are or where they come»from, are no longer going to make the downtown section on Saturday nigtit a cross between a Mardi Gras celebration and a New Year's eve party.
