Department ot Com- mcrce has Issued a pamphlet giving results of the population census taken in Iowa last spring. Copies were recently received by Kossuth newspapers. A table giving Kossuth's population by towns and townships Is published in today's Advance. As will be noted In this table the county gain in the last decade was only 370, but in the last 20 years it was 3481. The table gives the ^population figures for the lust three censuses. It is somewhat surprising to learn from another table ' in the census pamphlet that In the decade following 1900 the county sustained a considerable loss In population. The total for 1000 was 22,720, but this shrank to 21,971 In I19UO, a loss of 549. _ Big Gain from 1890 to 1900. There was, however, a remarkable • gain in the decade preceding- 19.00. In 1890 the population was only 13,120, whereas In 1900 it was 9GOO larger. In other words there was a gain of nearly 75 per ceni. From 1920 to 1930 the gain was only 1.5 per cent, while from 1910 to 1920 It was H4.2 per cent. The foregoing figures show that population growth or loss is Irregular. The present population figures will stand as official for a period of five years. In 11.935 a state census will be taken. The federal government takes a census every tenth year and the state takes one half way between. In order of population Kossuth towns now rank as follows: Algona 3985 Bancroft ; 854 Swea City ,. „ 695 Whittemore 604 Burt 580 Lu Verne 570 Titonka .' 473 Wesley 462 Lakota 409 Fenton 381 Ledyacd ..,.-,.,...-.-. ...,„......-. -0H Lone Rock 159 Greenwood Leads Townships.

Ciarlon won the title with! five victories and no defeats. The final standings tire: Won Lost Tied • i.'larion Algona Webster City Hampton Mumboldt ISagle Grove 1000 j 000 The Thanksgiving tie was a surprise to the conference, for Algona had defeated Humboldt by a top- heavy score and Humboldt had previously walked away with Eagle Grove. The condition of the field and the cold day ar e In part blamed, but at that Algona should have defeated Eagle' Grove easily. Reporting the result the last Clarion Monitor said, "Eagle Grove, downtrodden all year, came back to uphold its tradition of being poison to football teams from Algona and held the northern team to a ie game. This meant the same as a victory for Eagle Grove." Marion has now won two of three 'legs" on the football cup, while Al- ;ona has won one. A- victory in the league next season will give Clarion has now won two of three trophy, but Algona will have, to win twice more to keep .it. Algona won permanent possession of the Verne ninth, 932. All of these townships contain towns. O£ townships without incorporated towns Irvington is largest in point of j opyiation, with 782. The township, however, includes two vil- lagas, Ivvington and Sexton. Pral- ri3, which includes the village of fit. Benedict, Is next largest, with 725. Garfield. and c«rman Tied.

R. Wor- leys narrowly missed a serious accident on a trip to Mason City Saturday. The. car skidded on the Icy road on a hill the other, side o£ Forest City;- and turned around anc went down the hill where It was stopped by railroad tracks to one side of the crossing. Mr. Worley backed up, turned around and started down again with much the same result. A flat tire, supposedly caused by striking the tracks, was discovered .and the Worleys just hat time to get the'car off. the track to allow a, train to pass.
