Mr. Mann's claims were that Mr. •Carter was negligent in driving his truck on' the wrong or unsupported part of the scale instead of keeping the load over the beamed and reinforced' section. Mr. Mann alleged that Mr. Carter 'saw him "standing in the dangerous place when he was backing the truck, and should have stopped the truck till he got out of the way. Mr. Carter* clalme'd that Mann knew "the condition of the scale, and the danger, and that there was 18% inches on each side that was unsupported and would break • under a loaded truck. He said that Mr. Mann wae standing In the dangerous position directing him in driving the truck, and that In so placing himself he contributed to the cause of the accident. . Mr. Career also claimed that he knew little of the construction of the scale, though "he had hauled grain from the farm - several • times, but Mr. Mann said that he was or should have been" familiar with its construction because of his many trips. Mr. Mann also claimed that his father, E. O. Mann, had warned Carter against, the possibility of the truck breaking through the scale if It got out of the supported part. The 'jury deliberated but a short time, and brought in a verdict favoring Mr. Carter. The jury was composed of R. L. Padgett, Algona, foreman, Al and Jos. Dahlhauser, Whlttemore.

Spencer Firm May Complete School House The Spencer Construction Co., of Spencer, was the lowest bidder on completion of the new high school ,'buildlng in a letting held Monday and Tuesday at Des Moines. Representatives of the Union Indemnity Co., New Orleans, opened several bids Monday morning, and spent the rest of the day and Tuesday' in discussing allowances and materials of the construction with several of the lowest bidders. Yesterday morning the Spencer company- and bonding representatives came to Algona, and were discussing terms and conditions again after looking over the work already completed by th^ Mayer concern. No contract had been signed up to late yesterday afternoon, though it is presumed that the Spencer cpm- pany, which was the lowest bidder, will get the job. The Spencer company was started by R. D. Shannon and his father, who built the addition to the Bryant building in 1912. The Shannons came to Algona from Wisconsin for the job, and after completing the building they remained in Iowa, settling at Spencer, where they have been since. R. D. Shannon Is now In active charge of the work, it Is understood here. . E. W. Hanson came to Algona from Wisconsin at that time, and has lived in Algona since. ' R. D. Shannon worked on the construction of the Bryant addition, and Is thus no stranger to Algon- lans. "** H, B, QUARTON PRim(IT|0; BECOMES CONSUL KNERAL Harold B. Quarton, eon of Judge and Mrs. W- B.

I take It that a number-.of your readers had some little Interest in the article on "How Dry A,m~' -1?" that I recently wrote for the Cosmopolitan magazine, in which I quoted at length two or three Algona residents. A college classmate of mine sent me a column clipping from your splendidly edited pages about my Algona adventures, (Sunday Register, January 11). In the main tills report was correct, except that it implies that I have misquoted my Informants, that I went there prejudiced and with my mind fully made up, and that, in the words of W. C. Dewel, editor of the Kossuth County Advance, what I had to say was "twisted propaganda, every line of It! Distorted facts the only persons whose names are used embarrassingly misrepresented." The reason I chose Algona to make a part of my study regarding prohibition Is because an old and valued friend of mine is an Algona boy who came to the Big City and made good—Wood Cowan, the New York comic-strip artist. He t told me of returning to his home and comparing the drinking there now with what it had been 18 or £0 years ago —all against the present condition. Now, I had the names of two or three people in Algona to see. They had all been ardent drys. They were State college, who will speak a a Community club meeting at the K. C. hall next Monday 7:30. night Dr. Shore had practiced medicine in his country since his graduation rom the medical college of the Uni- ersity of Michigan at Ann Arbor n 1836. Previously he had attended school and college in Toronto and Winnipeg. x ' _ The doctor first practiced at Algona. After four years he turned :o specialized • work and 'studied in London, Paris, and New York. To Des Moines in 1891. He moved to Des Moines in 1891 and 'had practiced here since then. Death was caused by cerebral ar- erlosclerosis. He was a member of the Des Vlolnes club, a Shrlner and a mem- jer of St. Paul's Episcopal church. He was a former member of Wakonda club. Survives. "Surviving him are his wife, formerly Bertha ' Call of Algona; one daughter, Bertha Shore Jewett; and four sons, Ambrose, <Philip, Victor, and Richard, all of Des Molnes. A brother, Montague Shore, and a sister, Mrs. I. H. Davidson, live n Winnipeg. Funeral arrangements will be announced later. 10TH DISTRICT RURAL MAIL HARRIIRS WILL MEET HER!

I was after no violent opinion from either of the extremes. I dropped in on Editor Dewel to pay a courteous professional call. I found him "hospitable and pleasant, but so rabidly and bitterly dry ; that I decided not to quote:..him—^any more than I quoted'a rabid wet. The reason I did not use the names of all the people interviewed was exactly the reason I gave in my article for not identifying the minister I talked with—and the violent attack made on me by a member of my own profession certainly justifies ( my caution in protecting my informants.

OiQ — The voters of the l«ak»ta; independent school dis- I know better now—that prohibition passions run fast and loose. Please let me add in closing that there is not one line or word of this article that I would want to change or correct. For years I have been called a hypocrite by my wet friends because I was " a sincere drinking dry." I had felt, as I wrote, "deeply and proudly, that national prohibition was the most Important step as well as the most courageous ever taken by organized man for his own benefit." ^ And now, after a swing around the country, I believed and wrote that "prohibition had failed its magnificent promises."—Frazier Hunt, New York City.
