Algona Credit Bureau TITONKA BEE MEN HONORED AT FAIR Titonka: L. G. Gartner and son, Harold, ace bee men of this community, had an extensive exhibit at the State Fair last week. They were awarded first place on the entry, "A Window Display for Most Value In Advertising Honey." This is the most coveted award offered exhibitors as well as being worth ;he most money. The Gartners scored second on an observation hive of Italian bees and in addition received seven other placlngs for various displays of honey and wax. They have marketed several tons of honey so far this season and have colonies of bees at numerous "bee yards" in the county. Early In the season :he flow of honey almost stopped because of damp, cold weather. There was a period at that time In which it was necessary to feed the bees. Feeding bees takes much of the profit out of the business as so much sugar has to be purchased. Mr. Gartner started raising bees as an avocation a number of years aeo when he was pastor of the local Methodist church. He now devotes tils whole time to the business with his son and they find it necessary to have additional help much of the time.

Phone 330 The ELK Cleaners NORMAN & PERRY We Deliver We Recently Purchased a Quantity AGROL -10 AGROL-10 is a Motor Fuel Containing Approximately 90 Per Cent Gasoline and 10% ALCOHOL MADE FROM IOWA CORN This product was originated in Sweden during the world war when that country was cut off from Petroleum supplies. Of necessity a product containing 95 per cent alcohol was used for a time— and without injury to motors. The standard motor fuel there now contains about 20 per cent Alco- hol. Germany and the British Isles also use it. American chemists have been experimenting with Alky-Gas for some time. During the past season 1,500 service stations in South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Western Iowa and Missouri sold AGROL at their pumps. We WANT EVERY FARMER TO TRY AT LEAST 100 GALLONS OF AGROL We didn't buy AGROL with the thought of forcing it on our trade. We purchased this initial shipment so that every one in this territory may try it out—decide for himself as to its merits. If AGROL is a success under local conditions and our trade wants it, we will stock it regularly and supply it from all our stations and trucks. If local farmers try it and don't think it practical, w-3 are ready to forget it. BENEFITS CLAIMED FOR AGROL Careful scientific tests have shown AGROL to have the following advantages. 1. Marked increase in power and improved acceleration. 2. Lower maintenance cost through elimination of gum and carbon. 3. Greater Mileage. 4 Freedom from danger of water accumulation 5. Easier starting. WE SEE WONDERFUL POSSIBILITIES TO USE IOWA CORN We are fcold that, if all motor fuel used in Iowa our surplus corn problem. With such possibili- jre to contain 10 per cent alcohol this blend ties in store aren't we foolish not to give AGROL were would require 50,000,000 bushels of corn—a won- a thorough trial? derful outlet for Iowa's chief crop and the end of Feed Your Motors a Bushel of Corn a Day, And Your Surplus Surely Will Fade Away.
