Four bottles of alleged hootch were found in the car, all half-pint size, of which two were full and two partly full. A young girl, who accompanied Johnson, was also arrested, but charges against her have been transferred to juvenile .court. Johnson demanded a preliminary hearing; and Sheriff Hovey gave testimony before Justice L. A. \yin- kel,''resulting In Jonnson's being bound to the grand Jury. This ;is; the third time that Johnson has been in liquor cases in district ,';court, and if convicted of the charge he faces a three-year penitentiary sentence under the habitual offender law. ,-. Johnson .first pleaded guilty to a liquor charge in' October, 1925, and received a six months jail sentence. He was'paroled from the bench. The parole-;was revoked in February, 1928, and ho was placed In Jail to serve the rest of the term. Friends and, relatives took his case to Governor Hammill, who granted an executive parole in May,. 1926. Later Johnson again got in trouble, and in August,' 1926, Hammill revoked the panole, and Johnson Was real-rested, and served the balance of the six months sentence. r . His second conviction came in 19S7 when he was<flned»$iOO.and $25 for attorney's fees in February of that, year, -.". . Johnson told'Sheriff Hovey that he had only "been in Kossuth county three hours when he was arrested near Lone Rock.. He has been working 'in various places in this state and Missouri, since leaving the county a couple of years ago. A telegram from Springfield, Mo., the first of the week, requested Sheriff Hovey to hold the Model A Ford sedan that Johnson was driving. The message said that officers from Missouri were coming for the car,,but did not state why, and the presumption held by local officers is that; either'the car was stolen or was ji«Qrtgaged and removed from the state without permission of the holder of the mortgage. FORMER III VERNE MAN IS KILLED BY OWN SHOT GUN Lu Verne, Jan. 27 — Word has been received of the death of Lee Fistjer, 6jear Lake, former manager and lineman for the local telephone exchange,. Be was killed. January 16, whep his »hot gun was accidentally 'discharged. .The body was found • shortly afterwar^ by a nephew, \VUUam Flatter.'.'ItMS believed, that he became entangled while he crawled through a barbed wire' fence. He was 41 years old, and b,esjdea his wife left three small daughters. > He bad been farming near Clear I^ake. Funeral services were held «t the Clear Lake Cpngre- church, 'the local Legion Council to Pass on A. & P. Cigaret License Request poat Only ,820 cars had been registered in J£p»ith. county Tuesday, indicating a fal|^s sff in the number of that owners ace apt reglster- JTW'.,ff- ta Dast years. Local clgaret license holders are watching with interest the city council meeting tonight, at which the application of the A. & P. grocery, store tor a license will be taken :;up.. i.XJcKb -application was made at the December meeting, and was tabled for a month, and Is automati- ca'ly brought up at the meeting tonight. Local dealers believe that the A. & P. will sell clgarets at a price too low for them to meet. This, they argue, will mean that ithe ten clgaret licenses now being held In Algona will be. in danger of being canceled. Each license pays the city $75, so that the city may lose several hundred dollars in granting the A. & P. a license. Local dealers say they cannot sell cigarets at a price lower than 20c per package, or $1.75 Per carton, and come out with a fair profit on the deal. The state'tax of two cents nor package, plus the high license fee of $75 per year, must be paid, anct this, of course, mvfst be passed on to the consumer. The $75 license takes all the profit from a large number of sales. The council will postpone consideration of plans for the new, filtering plartt to a special meeting to be held sometime next week. Discus- slo'n of the licensing proposal, and the regular inspection and passing of bills takes the council till a late hour, and the filtering plant plans are too intricate to be dlscusseci in a short time. A few of the present cigaret license 'holders may attend the coun-. cil meeting, It was believed yesterday. RED CROSS BOXES ARE OUT FOR DONATIONS Under direction of Antoinette Bonnstetter, schopl nurse, and Mrs. Elinor T. Sutton. county welfare worker, a Red Cross drive for funds for relief in the drought stricken area was started last week. Miss Carrie Durant, Third Ward principal, and her pupils made Red Cross boxes which hav e been placed at various public places for donations. .Tags were sold Saturday by Bernice Dearsch, Margaret Lease, Dorothy Marty, Shirley Ellsworth, Dorlys Knudsen, Violet Norman, Helen Goeders, Edna Gilmore, Mary Foster, Gertrude Morrow, Margaret VI- gars, and Margaret Habeger, and the total collected was $106.50. The largest donation was a five dollar bill. The committee In charge hopes that there will be a big response in .the donations placed in the boxes. News stories daily tell of Increasing suffering in the southern areas, and Kossuth's share toward relief has been set at $600.. LATHROP& WEAVER FIRM NAME TO REMAIN TRE SAME The death of Charles F.

BUILDING & LOAN ENDS ANOTHER YEAR'S WORK The annual meeting of the 'Algoni Building & Loan association was held .Tan wary 6, 'and M.'PI Weave and H, R. . Cowan were re-electet directors. G. W. Stillman was named to fill a vacancy caused by death of Mrs. Susan G. Barry. ' The association was examined by an examiner from .the state auditor office the first week of January and the meeting of the stockholder was adjourned to January 27 t hear the report of the examiner. At this meeting the report wa read. The receipts • and expendi tures were verified and proved 'cor rect to the satisfaction of the ex aminer, who said the association 1 showing a slow but steady growth and that the conservative method; employed in administration of iti affairs are reflected in the compar ative statement of assets and Ha billties. The association is solven and merits the support of all wh wish to invest. The annual directors' meeftng was held after the stockholders meeting, and A. L. Peterson was re-elected president; H. R. Cowa.n vice president; E. J. McEvoy, trea surer; A. L, Cunningham, secretary BUZZ -SAW CUTS KNUCKLES FROM LIVERMORE MAN'S HAND Cecil Hewitt, Livermore, lost two knuckles off his right hand Friday when it was caught in a buzz-sav while he was cutting wood. He wa: brought to the Algona Hospital for treatment. ' This was the fourth accident in the last week to men sawing wood Arnold Schumacher, 18, Bancroft died at the Kossuth Hospital las week Tuesday from a fractured skul suffered when he was hit by a block of wood which flew from a buzz-saw. ' , Ira Gingrich, Ledyard, , was brought to the Algona Hospital with both legs broken, by a stick hurlec by dynamite j used to split logs. W J. Bowman had to have a large gas! In the head sewed up at the,Algo,na Hospital a week agp'j after a branch from a tree he was falling hit him GEORGE DUNCAN IS JAILED; BREAKS INTO WIFE'S HOME George Puncan, who has been in trouble in the county for two or three years, was arrested Saturday when he attempted to break 'into a Bancroft bouse occupied, by Wife, who divorced, him sonie year; ago. He was sentenced to 30 days toy Formal forfeiture of the Mayer & ^on contract on the new high school building was completed 'Friday eve- ing by the school board, and the Union Indemnity Co., of New Ortans, has taken over the contract, il will relet It to some other bid- ler. The bonding company has called :or bids to be opened next week Monday, at the company office at Des Moines, and a new contract for completion of the work will be let by the bonding company at that time. The school board is now freed of 'urther action with the Mayers, and in the future deals with bonding Company as holders of the contract. All bills will be paid by .the bonding company or the new contractor and the monthly estimates will be paid to the bonding company or order. The bonding company is fully responsible for completing the buitd- Ing in accordance with the terms of the Mayer contract and is also responsible for any other contractor which It puts on the job. This assures the school board and district that the building will be completed as specified, and within the time limit, if possible, and at the same price as the Mayer bid. Thus If the new contractor's price ex coeds, that of the Mayer bid, th' bonding company will have to male up the difference. The board regrets that full use could not be 'made of the excellen building weather during, January but if the weather continues a? .igreeab'e us it has been so far, there is no'-question but that the building .will be ready ahead O f -time. The bonding company cut its notice t- contractors as short as possible and the notice of some ten clays 1 short considering the size of th project and the fact that work a! ready done must be estimated. A any rate it is certain that a ne% contractor will be on the job her next week, and that the building will be continued as originally plann ed. , ' * FOUR FARM SALES LISTEDJEXT WEEK Frank Besch, five miles south ani two miles east of Whittemore, 1 going to quit farming, and will sel his farm personal property at auc tion next Tuesday.

Mr Pringle lives at Lakota. Informa, tion was filed before Justice L. A Winkel, and Lattimer was arrested last 'Thursday, and sentenced same day. the Dftyeru on Vacation. J- Pavern left for Bos too Sunday fof a month with a brother, sister, other teMives, friends, Fattoer . Ravern igia «dji9%te4 .at ahsence j,, - was 18 Carloads of Hogs Shipped by One Algona Firm Saturday One of the biggest shipments of hogs, totaling 18 carloads, ever sent ut of Algona was shipped Saturday y McEnroe Bros, to the Decker ilunt at Mason City. It totaled more than 300,000 pounds, for which in average of 7c a pound was re- :eived, the total being $12,000. The McEnroe brothers' firm, which consists of C. L., Frank, and M. H. McEnroe, has been shipping rom the Milwaukee stockyards for several years, but this winter their business has increased to large pro- )ortions. Last fall new stockyards vere erected at the Milwaukee. Though smali, they are efficiently arranged and the size, is large enough for average shipments. Since January l the McEnroes lave shipped some $50,000 worth of hogs to the Decker plant and have •ecelved an average of 7c a pound. Most of the hogs have been spring pigs weighing an average of 260 pounds. The firm shipped" its 100th carload Tuesday. The McEnroes operate two trucks of their own and have hired other irucks on occasion to bring in hogs. Hogs have been trucked to Algona 'rom 30 miles around, and the business makes Algona a concentration point. There is little shrinkage in the short haul to Mason City, and farmers therefore receive more for their hogs than 1C shipment is made for a long distance. Freight charges on a carload from Algona to Mason City average around only $26.50.' The amount of shipping done by the McEnroes, who also do -a sideline business in farm machinery, indicates that the farmers of Kossuth still have plenty 0 E money coming from hogs. It also testifies to the success of the McEnroes in handling such a large volume of business promptly and satisfactorily. Mrs. Cowles Critically III in Arizona. Mrs. Gardner Cowles Sr., is reported critically sick with heart trouble at Chandler, Ariz., where she and Mr. Cowles went last fall in the hope that the climate would Improve her health. Mr. Cowles was at Das Moines part of last week, but returned to Arizona, and Gardner Cowlea Jr. flew from Des Moines to Chandler in the Good News II Sunday for a day's visit with her. Mrs. F. E. V. Shore, sister of Mrs. Cowles, had been with her, but the high altitude interfered with her health and she had to return to Des Moines Friday. Mrs. A. Hutchison left Friday for Des Moines to be with her sister, Mrs. Shore, who is reported improving. Mrs. Cowles is 68 years old. She is the"author of "Early Algona," the booklet which made such a hit during the Diamond Jubilee in 11920, and she was the principal donor of the Ambrose A. Call state park, which was named after her father, " TWO-CENT FARE TO DES MOINES GIVEN ON NORTHWESTERN A two-ce^t per mile railroad fare will go into effect on Northwestern trains between Algona and Des Moines, starting next week Monday, according to daily paper announcement from the general traffic manager. This rate applies only to stations on this and other designated lines. On transfers and other lines the rate is still 3.6 cents per mile. The two-cent fare makes a' sizeable reduction in fares, and under it rates will be approximately as follows: Algona to— Old'Rate New Rate Des Moines $4.32 $2.40 Ames __.'_._._ „ 3.08 ' 1.70 Webster City 1.76 1.00 Eagle Grove ______ 1.23 .68 If the reduction'in rate increases the business on the lines ahected It will be extended to other lines. The reduction is frankly an experiment, such ae Is being made by other roads. The Milwaukee recently made a similar rate on the Spencer-Des Moines line in Iowa, and lines in other states. The Northwestern reduction, will be in effect for three months, at the end of which period the rates will be raised to the former rate unless an increase justifying the two-cent fare Is made. ' There is only one drawback that observers can see to travel to Des Moines via Northwestern now rath- en than by car, and that is. the time at which the train arrives and leaves Des Moines. The arriving time Is after midnight and the leaving time is'around 3 a. m. It Is much cheaper to travel by the train than to drive a car, but the elapsed time element, together with the unreasonable hours, will have the effect of holding down traffic. Other sections of the Northwestern affected by the two-cent fare are: Madison to Platteville, Wis.; Green Bay to Laona, Wls.; Sterling to Peocia, 111.; .Rochester to Tracy, Minn.; Watertown to Gettysburg, S. t>.; -and Norfolk to Niobrara, Neb.

LUCKY TWO" GET RIDE TO MINNEAPOLIS Everett Richardson is Forced to Drive by Strangers. Everett Richardson, eon of W. A. Richardson, who assists at the Ror j Richardson furniture store, had ma unusual and trying experience Saturday, when he was kidnapped by- two men, who forced him to tak* them to Minneapolis, where the men turned him loose without harmtnff him in any way. Mr. Richardson is a farm hand on the Ralph Morgan farm south <•£ town, and had come to Algona to ;et medicine for a sick youngster and to attend to other duties. H» stopped at the Richardson store around 10 a. m., and then went to hi» car, which was parked just across the street west from the Advance office. Two Men Follow Him to Car. As he started for his car two men, who had been standing .in front, at the Dehnert hotel, • walked . across. the street, and met him at the car- door. At the point of a gun held in his ribs Richardson was forced to- enter the car, and to drive east out of Algona.

Installation of the clock aj; the plant will enable the employees to check one against the other, and regulate the generators . accordingly.
