K. on Hospital Unanimous approval of the plan of the local Prudence lodge of Masons to -buy the former Algona hospital building was granted by the grand lodge of the state, according to a letter received by Secretary D. L. Leffert of the lodge Sunday. Trustees of the lodge are meeting tonight to complete arrangements for purchase of the building, which is to be done before April 1. Several plans for remodeling the hospital are to be asked of contractors by the trustees so .that a choice will be available. These plans are to be outlined and then presented to the members for approval at the regular lodge meeting Thursday night, April 9. ' -' ' .-',. It is planned to push work along as speedily as possible, and 'that the new lodge home and club rooms will be available for use sometime summer or early this fall. • this CITY FILTER CONTRACT IS LET TO THE COWANS A contract for the new city filter- Ing plant was let Monday nteht by the council to H. R. Cowan & Son, no objectors appearing at a scheduled hearing. •. Removal of dirt was to begin yesterday. An engine-driven ecoop operated by the W. B. Williams company, Algona, was placed on the ground Monday ready to start operations, but Monday and Tuesday's rain stopped work. If the weather is favorable, the Cowans will start work immediately after the dirt has been removed. Other towns in this part of the state have been having trouble from dirty water caused by rust and the odors of well gas. Estherville,. for example, Is also planning a filtration plant. That town, like Algona, has a munlclpally-owned light and power plant and can divert funds to pay for the plant. Algona's filtration plant is to be paid for entirely from light and power earnings, and no tax will be levied. This is possible though the local light and power' rates are as low as those of similar towns throughout the state, or even lower. TWO TENNIS COURTS WILL BE BUILT AT GOLF LINKS Mayor Albert Ogren, president of the Country club and in charge of greens and grounds, started a crew of men at work yesterday leveling off the top of the hill south of the clubhouse where two tennis courts are to be built this spring. The view from the courts will 'be equally as good as that from the clubhouse, which overlooks the river, the town and the farm, lands,to the south and west. The courts are on top of the hill, where the players will be benefit ted by the breeze. The" site is excellent *9r drainage purposes, and the courts will be dry in a short period following a rain.

PERFECT ATTENDANCE RECORDJtEJT 7 YEARS Following the lessson period at the Baptist ^Sunday school last Sunday, the secretary, Mrs. C. A. Samson, read the names of persons who had been perfect in attendance during the preceding year. Suitable tokens were presented -by' the school.

H. Webster, Mrs. Jerry Helgens, Mr. and Mrs. Howard Witham, and AV- T. Presnell completing the -list. . Marcoila Coleman is the youngest member of .the group; Mrs. Helgens the oldest. A rule counting everyone perfect who was present unless unavoidably kept away by sickness would, include the senior deacon, John Urch, who would then have the honor of being eldest in the group, '§uch a rule should include his wife, who has cared for him during his illness. GEORGE LAPPE,' BANCROFT, CHARGED WITH GUN THEFT George Lappe was arrested at Bancroft Monday by Sheriff L. E. Hovey on a charge of larceny. He was to have a preliminary hearing late yesterday afternoon.

Rain and snow since June 1, Including up to Monday noon, was J3.no /inches, wheras the normal amount is 24.'56. It rained on only 45 days out of 295 In this period, and the sun shone 200 day a, according to reports kept by Weather Observer L. M. Merritt. The precipitation by months n.nd the normal for each month follow. Actual Normni Ju ne 3.46 4.50 July si 3.83 August 1.91 3.44 September 3.71 3.64 October 1,44 2 .43 •November 2.02 1.55 December 28 1.14 January 27 1.05 February '. (JT 1.2U; In February there were traces of rain in the measuring instrument on only three days, and the instrument did not register rain or snow other than the trace during the whole month. Up to Monday a total of .39 inch of rain had fallen s o far in March. It continued to rain Monday afternoon. The normal rainfall for March is 1.77 inches; for April, 2.90 inches; for May, 4.58 inches. This is a total of 9.31 inches due between March 1 and June 1. The lack of 10.GG inches, of near- 'y half ofthe normal, was the cause of the drought which affected crops in the growing season last summer. From June to October only , one month ran over the normal, and that was September. The other months ;fell away below the normal, particularly July, which had less than an inch of rain, \vhile the normal is ,nearly four inches. The period starting April 1 is usually the heaviest rain period of the year. In the next six months 22.95 inches of rain should fall. This would be two-thirds of the normal total for the year, which is 32410 inches. The shortage last season meant that every square foot of ground in Kossuth lacked 6.6 gallons during the"'period.' There are '43,560' square feet in an acre and the shortage on an acre of ground would therefore be 287,496. .Persons handy with figures can determine the stupendous total for a quarter section, for a township, and for the county as a whole. There was a more or less steady drizzle Sunday night, all day Monday,' and part of Tuesday. Tuesday morning there was a light fall of snow, but it melted immediately. It was sunny again yesterday. TRACK MEET TO OPEN SEASON HERE TODAY The local track season opens officially this afternoon with the home meet at Athletic field. Some V 30 aspirants make up the team, and prospects are good for a successful season. Practice tryouts have resulted in shotputs up to 40 feet arid javelin throws up to 145. The pole vault event will, be well taken care of, and the same relay team that ran last year is available. On the whole, there is a little better outlook'in field events than in track, though at least one good miler and a good \half-miler have shown up so far. The hurdles are the weak point. A meet with Emmetsburg- April 17, a' Big Six meet at Webster City May 8, a "state-district meet, probably at Mason City, May 24, and a meet at Sioux Falls May 15, make up the tentative schedule. Livermore comes here next week for a practice meet. PHILLIPS KNOCKS RUBLE OUT MIDWAY IN THE 2ND Clarence Phillips scored his third knock-out in a row when he floored Charles Ruble, northwest and Clay county champion, in a scheduled 8- round main go at Spencer last Thursday night. Ruble, who was not in the same class with Phillips, lasted only half way through the second round. . Phillips is now to meet Frankie Soldes, 165-pound Minneapolis boy with a record of 300 scraps, in a main go at a Legion match at Spencer Tiext Monday night. At this show Vic (Cowboy) Hilvety, recent Algona acQulsitlon, is to make his initial appearance in the ring. Hilvety, who -has been setting pins at the Hub bowling alleys, 'has . been working out with Phillips. Phillips refereed a boxing show at Estherville Tuesday night.
