Mall service from the south and from Swea City to points north is not satisfactory, both communities say. It may take three days for a letter to go from Swea City to Elmore, Minn., a distance of 20 miles while a letter from Swea City to Los Angeles takes hardly any longer than three days. Conference Held The merchants' association com mittee consisting of Ray Smith anc Herman Bowman, with Postmaster Ida Larson, conferred last Monday May 23rd, with Chief Railway Mai Clerk Samuel Hartman of Cedar Rapids, who came here to remedy the matter. Hartman proposed that Swea City establish an early morning sta route to Gerlcd to make connection 1 with the northbound Algona-Elmon star route at 7:40 a. m. One Round Trip Now If a sufficient number of Arm strong business men are interested in the project, the proposed rout would run from Armstrong to Ger led. Swea City's mail service at present consists of a star route from Esthervlle to Lnkotn. which makes one round trip daily, arriving ut Swea City at 10 a. m. and 4 p. m. D. D. Mpnlux Winds Up Over 30 Years in Rail Postal Service When D. D. Monlux of Algona descended from the Milwaukee eastbound Sioux, Sunday evening, It brought to a close his active career on the railway mall service of more than 30 years, and began for him the long-aWalted time of easing up in a daily round of hard labor experienced by all railway mall clerks. Mr. Monlux has been running between Algona and Chamberlain, S. D. Now that he will no longer struggle against time in the speedy' handling of the mails, combat the continuous tension of riding in mall cars day and night, and feel the hard physical strain of standing hour after hour at a job that demands accuracy plus speed, he will be free to enjoy his favorite hobbles and interests, other than his own home and the progress of his three, fine sons. Mrs. Monlux is a native Algona girl, the former Elvira Seasfrrom. The three Monlux sons are William, a doctor of veterinary medicine, now in the research department at Cornell University, Ithaca, N. Y.; Robert, a third year student In medicine at the University of Iowa, and Andrew, a first year student at Iowa State College in the veterinary department. Mr. Monlux Is worshipful master of the local Masonic lodge, and custodian of the Grand Chapter. His place in the postal service will be taken by Arthur Glaser of St Paul, who is moving here this week.
