Flaig attended the Kosauth county American Legion meeting at Bancroft lust Tuesday afternoon. of Irvlngton, bordertnn the John Frankl farm, is a road running north and south joining; the Ridge road on the north and the county road on the south. Lack of traffic has obliterated any old time wagon ruts and so this stretch of once-a-road has been fenced for pasture. Lately the county erected n new stop sign probably for the cows to obey for certainly anyone driving a car or horse vehicle would at least stop to open the gate. * • * Sorrow and tears prevailed In the W. L. Martin home. A long time friend and a great singer brought grief to the family when he was found silent in death. Really a bird in a golden cage, a loved canary. * * * Jake Freeh Rat relating stories of a whale which he visioned on a trip from Europe. In the original French style of oratory the whales seemed to be floating near at hand, so realistic was the description. Jake turned to one little boy and asked if he had ever seen a whale. "Ya, I've caught lots of them," said the Interesting youngster. * * * By sending In to a state department, farmers are refunded taxes on gas used for operating tractors. A filling station attendant gave the version of a conversation with a state Inspector. It goes something like this—If all the tractors were kept running 24 hours a day and seven days a week for a year they couldn't use enough gas to offset the refund claimed. Now—that doesn't sound like our Kossuth farmers. * » * A mechanic in the Maxwell garage went fishing a week ago Sunday. The car mired down in a driveway off the main Voad. He got out to push while the good wife went behind the wheel. From shoes to waist the water and slimy mud embraced the fine clothes of the struggler. Finally out and to the river bank he carefully wiped and brushed the clothing, put on hip boots and stood on the dry river bank fishing. * * * There were traces of bribery with chicken dinners at Kresensky's (what she thought) a light scandal. She appeared for work in tho morning with one foot attired in a lace style slipper and the other in a pump. The crew soon went to work and the embarrased Mrs. Walrath suffered aches all morning, not from hurting feet, for the mixup in shoes was negligence. * * • A few of our prominent people and well-to-do store owners give work to floaters. The fellow who hits the back door for something to eat, unkempt, unshaven, unbathed. unknown bump are seen doing work around some of the finest houses. Fellows who don't trust even the taking out of their pocket their nightly bed, a newspaper. And In one of last we«k'« p*p«r wma th. news that the local employment bureau had many extras on the list for jobs, cleaning cellars, washing windows, spading gardens, mowing lawns, etc. Good men, home men with families. Sometimes it makes one wonder if the local folks who trade out of town are not more than half smart with justified reasons. * + » We'll dare fcay Harold Clark of the Bancroft Register does a bit more earnest proof reading before he forgets the little error gracing an ad in his paper. Folks who know the merchandise on sale are heartily laughing and those who do not recall the goods are wondering and asking. Have a blush, Harold. * * * The radio is the wcond biggest household article. About 3,000 people In Algona listen in every day. At least half that number ask another person, "How does it come in at your place?" Guess you've heard the answer, "terrible." It Is an easy matter for one qualified to detect Interference, and fix or repair as needed. The city has such a gifted man working for it, the city has the necessary law to cover it, but they haven't the men with nerve enough to enforce it. 53 At Bancroft Auxiliary Meet Bancroft: The Bancroft unit of the American Legion Auxiliary met in St. John's auditorium Tuesday afternoon.
