A total of 16,400 letters were cancelled on the-Monday, before Christmas, when theibiggest day's business was done. The largest previous day was 12,000. The average weekly cancellation at the • postof flee is from 15,000 to 16,000, .so that in the one day the postof f ice force did a whole week's. work. D. P.'Smith had charge of the dispatching: case for letters, and for 10 hours straight, without time for lunqh, etojod before""the case and put Christmas cards and letters in the proper pigeonholes. John Wheelock took'charge of the parcels and the incoming mail, and the pair worked like'beavers to clean up the mall every day. M. J. McCall handled Insurance and money orders, assisted by • ^Assistant Postmaster Raney, who was general help where- over needed, and Betty Backus took care of customers at the window and assisted elsewhere. j An Idea of the enormous business | don,e each year at Christmas time at the , postof flee can . be Imagined by the fact that 66,400 letters were sent out from Monday, December 15, to Wednesday, December, 23. R. E. Vincent's mail truck was loaded for each train,'and brought back a load as great from each train. The Sioux, fast Milwaukee flyer, ran in two sections during the holiday rush, e^ first -section consisted only of passenger coaches, while the second section consisted only of mail cars. Vacations and leaves of absence were cancelled for mall clerks on the trains, and crews were doubled by canceling laylng-off time. At that several crews were unable to work their mall In time to»t»ss It off at a, oroper station, and in some cases mall was carried miles beyond the station addressed simply because the clew could not get to it. TWO BOYS ARE FINED $10 FOR ILLE6AL SALES OF FUR Clifford and Earl, sons of John P. Byson, were fined $10 each Tuesday on charges of shipping fare without a proper permit a year ago. The case had been pending for some time, and Justice Hutchison brought up tP dispose of it before he retires from office, Mr. Byson had applied for a license,, but before tt arrived the two boys had sold the furs on a good, market. The charge was purely technical, ana Justice Hutchjaon sweeased only the minimum fins. 6ILCHRIST IS PREPARING FOR CONBRESSIIAN'S DUTIES Congressman-elect y.

The Judges were unable to decide which was the best all-around dog, so Manager Rice gave two first prizes, a $15 wrist watch each for Eileen Aman, Algona, and Eleanor Intermill, Titonka. Other prizes were awarded as follows: Nearest to Kin Tin Tin, Darrell Wilson, Livermore, $5; vegetarian dog, Walter Beardsley, Algona, $1; longest dog, James Spencer, Algona, $2; shortest dog, Julius Baas, West Bend, $2; trick dog, Marjo'rle Phillips, Algona, $3; town dogs — Algona, Bernatllne Towne $2, and Frances W alters $1; Burt, Charles Hanna, $2; Corwlth, Bobby Wermer- son and Robert Galloway, $1 each; Whittemore, Frances Bestenlehner and Cletus Elbert, $1 each; Titonka, Maxlne Peterson and Robert Pink, $1 each; Fenton, Katherine Cage, $2.00. Each child who brought a dog was given a free ticket to the afternoon matinee. The stunt was pulled off to advertise "The Lone Defender." -a serial picture to be presented Saturday afternoons only, featuring Rin Tin Tin. KRIETHE TO DISPERSE NOTED HOLSTEIN HERD Of. great interest to dairy farmers over a wide territory will be an advertisement In today's Advance announcing the approaching dispersion of the well known Hoi- stein dairy herd owned by P. F. Krlethe, of Burt. This is one of the lending dulry herds of northern Iowa, built up by many years of painstaking effort.

Ostwinkle received a letter Christmas .day..from their son Carl, sent from Gejon, Spain. Carl is chief communicating officer aboard the S. S. Vlncas, sailing from New Orleans to Spain and France. His letter, in part, follows: "We got to Gejon after 27 days on water. We left New Orleans, sailing the south Atlantic via the Bermudas and the Azores. We «hould have been here sooner, but had rough seas all the way. The last 24 hours out ware awful, rough and foggy, and I was at my instruments the entire 24 hours, sending and receiving code messages. So many operators on the air almost drove on,e wild. My fellow officers are Just fine and our eats are of the best, with wine to drink at each meal. • ~ "Gejon Is a city of about 75,000 inhabitants, and is surrounded by mountains, the tops of which are covered i\Jth snow. This is a pretty sight. • "We go from here to 'Santander, Spain, 100 miles east of Gejon, and will be there 15 days before leaving for the U. S. A. "We have a fine receiving set, so we were able to get music all the way over, from Chicago, New York, London, Madrid, Rome, and Germany." ' Carl left Algona in December, 1929, for New Orleans, where he entered a radio operating school, finishing the course In four months at the head of his clase. After finishing he received appointment as junior communicating officer on hoard the S. S. Munorleans, a passenger ship sailing from New Orleans to Havana. After serving in this capacity four months he was promoted to chief communicating officer on board the Vincas. HARTSHORN-SAVAGE BARBER SHOP HAS CHANCED HANDS Hartshorn & Savage, barbers un der Bloom's store, have sold their business to Henry Furst, Buffalo Center, who has moved to town and is at work at the shop. Mr. Hart- tehorn and Mr. Savage will' work for Mr. Furst till spring. Mr. Furst needs no introduction to Algonians, as he had worked tor Shilta Bros, many years before going to Buffalo Center. In an "ad" elswhere in this issue Hartshorn & Savage thank patrons for patronage.

W, Patterson, K. J. smith and Postmaster W. A w MacArthur. Doctor Peters was at Dos Moines two weeks ago and made preliminary application tor a charter. He will go to Des Moines again next Tuesday, at which time, it is believed, all the stock will have been sold. So 'far no board oC directors or officers* have been made public. The bank will be named, It Is believed, Burt Savings bank, and will be capitalized at $25,000 with n . $5000 surplus. Burt has been served, by a clearing house association since the close of the First National bank a few months ago. SCHOOL BOARD FIRES YEAROUS AFTER HEARING Second Attempt at Ousting Him is Successful. Another episode in the casa brought against Glenn Yearous : husband of a former Algona girl, was given in the Sioux City Journal December 19, as follows: Glenn Yearous, superintendent of schools at Glidden, la., accused of being the father of Sioux City's "cornfield 'baby," was dismissed from his position by the unanimous vote of the members of the school board following a hearing at Glidden Thursday. Testimony brought out at the hearing, proved, the members of the board -decided, that Yearous had so conducted himself to lose the respect of the patrons and students of the. school and the citizens of Glidden. Testimony was given by three senior boys in the school, C. E. Rauworth, a former member •• of the board who filed charges against Yearous Saturday, and several girls who were gradu ated from the Gjlidden .high,";"school Algona Could £ose Blackford Unless It /s Improved last June.. .... Can Appeal His Case. Although Yearous was discharged, he was given 30 days in which to appeal to H. H. Linton, county su perintendent of schools at Carroll. In case the school board's decision is upheld by Mr. Linton, Yearous may appeal to the state superintendent of schools. Members of the board who ruled in ousting Yearous were Charles Fisher, president; H. W. Porter, sec retary; B. E .Waldron, treasurer; and Clyde Rich, Guy Gregory, O. B. Moorhbuse,- and •\V. H. Reever. The board sought to remove Yearous from office because of paternity charges brought against him by Edith Cairns, 11.9-year-old mother of the abandoned babe. . Heretofore Yearous had refused to resign his position in face of the efforts of the board to cancel his contract. When questioned by a represen tative of The Journal following the decision of the Giidden school board, Yearous said he would have no comment to make regarding his dismissal until he consulted his attorney Friday. Baby Is Still 111. ' "Raln-ln-the-Face 1 '• still Is at St. Vincent's hospital where he was taken, some weeks ago, suffering from an infection in the ear. Hospital authorities say that the child has'Improved considerably, but still is far from well and It has not been thought advisable to move him back to St. Monica's home. Mrs, Charlotte Cairns, Miss Ruth Cairns, and Harold Cairns, who signed confessions with Sheriff John Davenport that they had concealed the baby from view In a cornfield near Sioux City in order to save the family's "honor," are facing charges of child abandonment 1n district court. It is expected that the case will come, up for disposal during tht January term, as H has been continued past two court terms so far. WHITTEMORE YOUTH GIVEN 30 DAYS FOR LANGUAGE Wilfred Sawyer, former Oskalooea youth who has recently lived at Whittemore, was sentenced to 30 days in jail by Justice Hutchison Tuesday on a charge of using obscene language in the presence of a small girl. Sawyer, who is a big fellow fpr his 18 years, weighs over 200 pounds and stands eix feet four inches tall. His size overshadowed all the officers and Mr. Hutchison in the latter's office. STOCKFOOO SALESMAN IS ON LIQUOR CHARGE Robert Voight, stock food salesman In the Wbtttemore-Lottl Creek neighborhood, was fined |8QO, plus three months by judge Lovrien December J?, One-half of the jail term was suspended during good behavior, and Voight is at present aery- Ing the half term. He was arrested three week* ago, when two cans ot a}cohojl were found buried in a chicken house on the farm property' he rents. cj$iamym&& The Bib: Cleaners entertained 750 al their w$y ........ . _j* TOf ewsl wv^ffto. By Geo. E. Blackford. Hustings, Neb., Dec. 17 — I am enclosing the $2.50 for the Advance for another year in the form of a money order, rather than by the check you sent, as I do not carry a bank account. I cr-rtainly wish something could be -donr to wake up a public Interest in improving Blackford park! .Each time J have been back "home" I expected to see some Improvements, and each time I feel like saying, "How long, O- Lord, how long?" There Is a fence, and a beautiful gateway, which was erected in the first burst of enthusiasm, but inside there is only a gravel road, "Only this ana nothing more." There are no tables, no seats, no lights, no water, no fireplaces, and not even a flower bed. It looks to me like it wasn't appreciated! AVhen ever I spoke of it to anyone, there was always the same old alibi, "Not enough tax money," but there al ways seems to be money for other park Improvements! Ownership May Revert. My brother Clarus donated the iron gates and overhead sign, and my brother Ernest, in his will, be- qjueathed $300 for park improvements. How has this money been used? Surely Algona cannot expect the Blackfords, after donating the park, to also furnish the upkeep and improvement! It was "nominated in the bond" that if at any time Algona failed to use this tract or land for park purposes, it was to revert to the donors. It seems to me, if we. were to push the matter, that Algona would come close to losing this park. , I often read of parties and pic nics at the Call State Park. Naturally it would be used, as it is fitted up with the conveniences for such BAR OF DISTRICT GOMES TO ALGONA FOR ANNUAL MEET The bar association of ttie''"M!th judicial district met here for a ban; quet and program Saturday night, December 20. ' The event took place at the K. C. hall, and drew a wide attendance. The wives of local lawyers were in attendance; also the wives of a number of visiting lawyers. Among lawyers were seven sit ting or former judges; Justice Morling of the supreme court; former Judge N. J. Lee, Estherville; Judges Deland, Davidson, and Lovrien; former Judge Quarton; judge Hay craft of Fairmont; and Judge-elect Heald, of Spencer. Senator Patterson attended by special invitation. Congressman- elect Gilchrlst was also In attendance. The Rusty Hlng e quartette, Mason City, sang several times during the after-dinner program. The banquet was served by the Catholic Guild. Judge Quarton presided as toast master, and introduced T. P. Har rington, who gave a welcoming address. The principal speaker of the evening was Major Alvin. Ries, Madison, Wis., lawyer and legislator, who discussed the income tax. After Mr. 'Ries concluded his address, Judge Quarton called i on Senator Patterson, who_ spoke' briefly. Judge Haycraft was then introduced and gave a brilliant and witty address. Before the meeting closed, L, E. Linnan president of the association, called for the election of new officers. Judge F. C. Lovrien was made president, and Dwight McCarty, Emmetsburg, was continued as secretary. TITONKA FIRST NATIONAL TURNED OVER TO RECEIVER The First National bank at Titonka failed to open Its doors Friday, and was taken over by the U, S. treasury department for liquidation. The bank had been subject to a slow run since the closing of the Burt First National a , few months ago, and the lack of confidence led to closing to conserve resources. The bank was organized October IS, 1900. Jay Budlong was president, H. B. Rachut, cashier, and Edith Budlong, assistant cashier. The bank's capitalization was 125,000, and the last statement showed de- poeits of $240,000 and footings of nearly 1300,000, The run on the bank was so slow that few' Ti- tonkans even suspected it, and the failure to open came as a shock. ROY MOULDS HOLDS PUCE AS STATE AUTO INSPECTOR yesterday's Pes Molnes Register, reporting appointments made by O. C,. Qreenwatt, who becomes secrer tary of state tomorrow, said B, B. Moulds had been retained as one of 12 state auto inspectors. Seven of Ed M. Smith's appointees were retained and five new ones were appointed- It is rumored Mere that Mr. Moulds is to be transferred to the Siou* City digtript, but thfc has not been confirmed. gatherings. I would not belittle this park in the slightest degree; it is a beautiful place; but Blackford park is just as beautiful in a scenic way, and with tables and seats prepared; should be used as much as the state park. The state park should not be considered an Algona park, as it is maintained by state money. Largest of City Parks. .Blackford park Is the largest, most beautiful, and should be the most popular o£ all the Algona parks. Athletic park is especially fitted for sporting events, Maple park is already In us e as a tourist camp, 1 the Asa Call park will be a resting place for the tired shoppers, and is no doubt .a little gem, though I have never seen it. It seems to me that all these must be fully improv ed, and no need of spending any more money on them. I have read of ihow the grounds around the swimming pool were being beautified; I suppose the money for this was taken from the park fund. Cannot you, editorially, start some kind of a movement to put Blackford park into condition so it will be more used? I know It Is winter now, -but get some plans underway now, to hatch out in the spring, into definite action. Inter est the Commercial club, the Kiwanis, the Campfire girls, and the Boy Scouts! If I remember rightly, the park was donated in 19.12, and surely in 20 years there should have been a better showing than has been made. Certainly the old home town, with her widely known reputation of being the most beautiful little city i'n Iowa, has pride enough to take care of this park, and in so doing, honor the memory of one of her most prominent pioneer settlers. OIL STATION BANDIT NEARLY GETS CAUGHT An .attempted robbery at the Charles AIcGinnis oil station on Di- agonal'Street was frustrated last weeto'Tuesday 0 evening, "wlfeh Mr McGlnnis slezed the bandit's: revolver and started reaching for hia own gun, carried in his pocket. The bandit became alarmed, jerked loose, and ran out of 'sight down the street. Mr. McGinnis did not want to shoot, fearing that he would kill the youth. ' The same evening, only a few momenta later, Elmer Cook, at the Monomotor station near the Ice cream factory, was robbed by a bandit of $7 In change. The bandit wore a red handkerchief over his face, and Mr. Cook did not recognize him. -.; Descriptions of the Monomotor and McGinnis bandits d.ld not tally, so it is believed there were ^wo robbers, probably working 'together, arid robbing two stations at about the same time to throw police Into confusion when the alarm. was spread. WOMAN WHO LOST FOOT IN ACCIDENT SUES CAR OWNER Notice of a damage suit for $22,000 was-filed In district court Tuesday - by . Gusta . Muckey against Henry Klocke. The petition has not been filed. The suit is the result of an accident which occurred October 3 three miles south of Algona, in which six women, all passengers in a car, were injured. Mrs. Muekey suffered a crushed foot, Which had to be amputated at the ankle. The women were on their way to Fort Dodge to spend the day, and had borrowed Mr. Klocke's car. Mrs. Charles Runchey was driving, and was accompanied by her mother, Mrs. Lottie Smith, Mrs. George Willey, Algona, the latter's daughter, Mrs, Nettie Gllntz, of Colorado, Mrs. James Phillips, Algona, and Mrs. Muckey. Details of the charges are given in the petition, which has not been filed- E. C. McMahon is local attorney for Mrs. Muckey. ALGONA YOUTH* ARRESTED ON MINNESOTAjJIRL'S CHARGES George Jennings, Algona youth, was arrested by Sheriff Hovey Monday for Warren, Minn., officers, who hold a warrant'for his arrest on a charge concerning the paternity of a child. Jennings had worked in a grayel crew in the neighborhood of Warren in northwestern Minnesota. It is understood that the officers from Warren are coming for him and that he will waive extradition. He denies the charge. RECKLESS DRIVING COSTS BANCROFHOUTH $25 FINE Melvin E>, Ditswortb, Bancroft, was fined $25 and costs by Justice Hutchison Tuesday on a charge of reckless driving. Towards midnight Friday night, J, J. Neeling, In tfee south part of\ town, was" nearly thrown from his bed, when a car driven by Ditsworth wnwed into the house, knocking it two Inches off the foundation. The gar ha4 akiaded going around a corner, PiUs.-' woptlj said, ' . i , ? A.-P. GROCERY ASKS CIGARET SALE LICENSE Petition is Presented! to Council and is Tabled. An application by the A. & P. grocery etore for a permit to sell clg- arets was tabled by the city council at the December meeting Friday night. It was filed by L. R. Cooper., in charge of the district of whtehc the Algona store is a part. Mr. Cooper presented the application, with the necessary bond and. * check for license fee.,; He then presented to the council copies of a district court decision at Waterloo fifc which Judge Lovejoy held that tto* council of that city went beyond tta: rights in withholding a permit front an A. & P. store there. Mayor Ogren told Mr. Cooper that personally he wanted to investigate! the matter further, and the councilmen agreed. Councilman C..' HL. Taylor then moved that the application be tabled till the next meeting., and he was seconded by D. L. Let— fert. The motion carried unanimously. Conrad Herman was th«c only councilman'not present. Surprise to Other Dealers. The application was a surprise tas other clgaret dealers here, who arer now planning to put up a fight. against issuance of the license. A; meeting of dealers is planned at which the matter will be taken up,, discussed, and if deemed advisable a fight arranged for. Local dealers claim the A. & Pi will sell cigarete at a price with-. which they cannot compete. CigaretKt are subject to high taxation. The, federal government gets six cento on each package splc? and the state^ gets two cents, making a total of eight cents in taxes paid direct.'Th»t. local dealers, they say, by the tim»<- the taxes have been paid, hav* slightly more than 14-cents invested* in each package. Then, on top of all these taxes, a£ city license fee of $75 must be paid.' each year, .and the 'price at whfchf the cigarets are sold must pay that; license fee. At 20 cents' a package.. the prevailing Algona price, dealemr claim, the cigarets bring only a fate- return. The A. & P., the local managwr- says, will probably sell cigarets at 176 a package. Mr. Cooper told •. reporter Friday night that the pric*.. if the license is granted, will b*..'. either 17 cents or two for 35 cent*. ' Statute Is Confusing. One of the; big problems to be'de- cided by the council, if it te to turn. down the permit, is whether the law- grants the council the privilege. Tba* law says "may," which seems to Indicate that the council has discretion and would therefore be wlthtei. its rights in refusing the llcenM. The Waterloo district court decision. which is not necessarily binding on. the courts here, held that the council had no discretion. Section 1557 of the Code of 19JT. providing for permite, Bays in part;". . . Such permit may be granted.- by resolution of the council of any city or town under any form of government, and when so granted 'may be issued by the clerk of such city, or town. If Issued to a person for- use outside of a city or town aucH- permit may be granted by resolution of the 'board of, supervisors, andi when so granted shall be Issued -tor the auditor of the county. Such 'per- ' mit ehall remain in force and effect' for two years following the 1 July first after Its issuance, unless eoon.- er revoked."
