'$ STORE KOSSUTH COUNTY ADVANCE. ALGONA, IOWA THE STOKE OX THE COBJfEB WESLEY ELEVATOR BLAZE DAMAGE IS FIXED_AT_ $25,000 Damngo estimated 'at $2!i.OOO wns caused by a. fire Inst week Wednesday evening which destroyed one of the two Fnrmers Cooperative elevators nt Wesley. Adjoining buildings were threatened, but the Wesley, AUjonn, and Brltt fire trucks prevented the blaze from spreading to them, though nothing could be clone to save the elevator. The Aigona and Brilt trucks were called soon after 10 o'clock. The blaze was discovered In the cupola at flMH, but its origin is unknown. It wns fanned, by a strong northwest wind, and spread rapidly to encompass the entire structure, dooming it within a few moments jitter the fire wns noticed. AVosleyans saved a halt carload of clover and timothy seed, and some fencing, but 1500 bushels ot corn, 1600 bushels of barley, a carload of salt, a half carload of fertilizer, a carload of plgmcal, and a carload of cottonseed were lost. The flames blazed high in air, and threatened the James A. Smith lumberyard and the Charles Krauso general store. Sparks fell like snow, and homeowners kept near their own premises in the line ot the wind to protect them from chance sparks. The large Aigona pumping truck was taken to Wesley shortly after 10 o'clock, manned by Ralph Elbert, George St. John, Oscar Anderson, and Lloyd Muckey. They were followed in a short time by Frank Kohlhaas, Ray Barton, and Bert Muckey, In a car. The second Ai- gona truck was not taken out' because the high wind and possible fire here might have resulted in disaster before the truck could return. The elevator was organized in 1907, and has done a good business. Ed Pllldman Is manager; Ed Loebig, assistant. The west elevator was saved, it being the east one that burned. In the latter part of the night a shower fell, wetting roofs and grass so that danger of the fire spreading was averted. The Algonlans remained at Wes- Jey till 3 a. m., when the fire had died down to a small blaze and there was little danger of its spreading. Grain and remains of the building were still burning last Thursday. The first fire on this spot was. in November, 1889, when a grain warehouse, the Taylor & Hume lumberyard, and the Frank Heal drugstore and home were burned. In June, 1907, a more destructive blaze started at the elevator and wiped out an entire block containing the hotel, Cowan's restaurant, Oscar Nelson's general store, a printing office, clothing store, barber shop, barns, corncribs and coal-houses. At that time the Farmers company had just lurchased the elevator, and was to ake possession the day it burned. The Hunttlng elevator, managed by Fred Anderson, now owner of an Vlgona elevator, was burned in the same fire. yecials For toe Week Only Best Quality Paints at a Sacrifice.

Special Cigar so popular to all who recognize choice high quality tobacco. Since the first G. & B. Special was manufactured ten years ago, its originators have constantly strived to maintain or increase the high standard of this cigar. As a result it has enjoyed a steady increase in sales. Several years ago when good cigars could not be bought for less than 7c, the G. & B. Special was reduced in-price to make it what the average smoker demanded—a good 5c cigar. Today the G. & B. Special still maintains its 7c quality-but sells for only 5c. That is why 300,000 G. & B. Specials were manufactured and sold in 1930 — practically all of them in Aigona. If for any reason you have not given the G. & B. Special Cigar a trial do so now. You will enjoy it from start to finish. For Sale by AH Aigona Dealers.
