The boy scout troops have been taking up some different projects. The Beaver patrol has been working on the merit badge for leather- making, and the Flying Eagle patrol has been working o n fire merit badges. The Fox patrol has taken up the project of draining stale mosquito water. Some of the troops have been sending in writeups of their patrols. The Flying Eagle patrol leader, Richard Norton, gives an account of his patrol as follows: "Two boys, who are under 12 years of age, have been taken over by our patrol. They are called cubs, which is similar to scouts. It is an organization of boy scouts between 9 and 12 years. ~The troop is full, but instead of turning them down we took them to fill in when we have meetings or any patrol activities." LwiUiercraft Studied. ' "Our patrol meeting last week was for finishing our project in leathercraft. Purses we made look very nice. We are specializing at present in leathercraft, bead work, horsehair work, and celluloid and feather work." "The patrol is looking forward to a summer encampment of one week, when the boys specialize In first- aid, fire-building, camping, archery, cooking, and wood carving. We will have a committee from the local council review us and qualify us for merit badges. We are a patrol of second class scouts heading for first class tests. We were organized January 17, ii931. "The boys are a trifle rowdy, but we are growing to better manhood every day. We will attend a coui of honor to be held here sometim this month. The boys in our patro are: leader, R. P.

It was decided to hold a contesl for Ihe next two months in advancement and achievements in scouting, prizes have been offere< for the winners. "Members o f the Wolf patrol are Fernley Nolle, leader; assislanl Harian Sigsbee; scribe, *03ob 'Spen cer; treasurer, Maurice Miche! James Bishop, Junior Long, Jame; Chubb, and Stanley Muckey."

Burnard came to take up the work his successor had begun. He was a man of commanding- presence, dignified, serious, and considerate. H e was enterprising and begun the movement which resulted i n the sale of lhe Slate street church property and in ' the locating of the church elsewhere. It was he, furthermore, whoJnduced the church to sell the second location and build where the church edifice now stands. "The celebration of the twenly- I'ifth anniversary of the life of the church occurred in 18S3, the Rev. Mr. Burnard delivering the address in the shaded yard of lh e J. E. Stacy home. After twelve years of service he resigned and located elsewhere, bui died a few years later. ONLY CHILD OF* GOOD HOPE COUPLE PASSES SUDDENLY Margaret Amita Knoll, 5-year old daughter of Mr. a nd Mrs. James J. Knoll, of the Good Hope community, and granddaughter of Mr. and Mrs. Wm. F.

Early Ligbthoxue* Important Colonial lighthouses were off Newport, on Sandy h 00 k, on Cape Henry, an island off Charleston, on Tybee river. Sa. vannab, and Boston harbor. Some weeks ago 11 was announced thai Ray E. Sherman, brother of T. C. Sherman, Algona, and Jos. J. Sherman, Bancroft, had been nominated mayor of El Paso, Tex. -The election has since taken place and Mr. Sherman was elecled. Saturday's Fort Dodge Messenger said: A copy of the El Paso, Texas, Herald Post, dated April 15 announces the election of Ray E. Sherman as mayor of lhal cily. The news is of special interest in Fort Dodge, where he used to live as a boy, aivl as a young man when he was city editor of The Forl Dodge Messenger. He remained on this newspaper until he was attracted by lhe possibilities of a wider career in Texas. His hopes and ambitions down on the Rio Grande seem to have been well realized. Mr. Sherman visited in Forl Dodge last summer at the home of his aunt, Mrs. Sarah L. Nicholson— his first return here for a good many years. At thai time he intl- maled he might toss his sombrero in the mayorality ring ihis spring. He recently won the democratic primary contest for the nomination and had no competitor afterward in the election for in Texas a democratic nomination is about equivalent to being elected. His majority for the nomination was overwhelming. A carloon on the front page of the El Paso paper Illustrates Ray Sherman in connection with the fol- .lowing phases of his life: Born and reared o n a farm, milk ing cows and plowed. His first job was reporter on a newspaper. He is in the real estate business; was one of the organizers and first president of El Paso Real Estate Board. ^> His boyhofid ambition was lo be a lawyer. Attended public school and the University of Iowa. His favorite hobby is his 11-year-old son. Elected mayor of El Paso. Served four years as alderman. Pasl presi- denl Ad club. Director Texas Association of Real Estate Boards. Director Associated Charities. Was member of City Planning Commission. The government census for 1930 gave El Paso a population of 101,1175. It is an importanl gateway inlo Mexico, is the seat of an army post, and occupies an important position as a manufacturing and distributing metropolis in the south- wesl. The importance of the position of mayor there is gauged by the importance of the city itself. BOOK CIRCULATION HERE INCREASING The annual meeting of the library board of trustees was held at the city library April 15, and the annual report was read and accepted. Of special interest to the community are the following facts; The amount spent for books was $5(J.S5. There were 33,285 books loaned, Ibis being a gain of 4720 over lasl year. The iargesl daily circulation was 230. One hundred twenty-three books were rebound, and 611 were repaired in the library. The total number of volumes at close O f year is 110,783. The interest of the people oulslde town in haying Ihe use of library books is shown In the Increased number of library cards sold during the year, which was 81 this year, ending- March 31, against 44 the year before. The charge is 50c for a three months card, with two booka allowed at a time and exchanged as often as desired. Trends in at the loan reading are desk. The observed detective story and western tale are constantly called for, but many persons are showing a greater interest in books on psychology, biography, and travel. Though "A Lantern in Her Hand," by Bess Streeter Aldrich, came out in 1928, it is seldom off the reserve, list. Some of the worth while books which ar e being widely read are: Angel Pavement, by Priestly; Deepening Stream, by Dorothy Canfield; Roadside Meetings, by Hamlin Garland; The Meaning of Culture, by Powys; Black Soil, by Donovan', Story of San Michele, by Munthe; About Ourselves, by Overstreet; Exploring Your Mind, by Wiggam; Cimarron, by Edna. Perber. TELEVISION EXPLAINED AT ROTARYCLUB MEET The Rotary club heard a mosl inslruclive address Monday noon by W. E. Bryan, Iowa Falls telephone manager, on the theory and mechanics of television. .The Algona hotel dining room was darkened by puling down the window shades and turning o ff the lights, and stereop- licon views illuslraling Mr. Bryan's remarks were, thrown on a screen hung from the doorway. After the address a number o f Rotarians remained to congratulate him and ask questions. Mr. Bryan, who is a Rotarian himself, gave the same address the same day before the local high school, the pupils of the academy, and the Wesley high school. It was then repeated before employes at the Algona telephone offices in the evening. .

Lunch was served '•J.y -.-.: : We seldom think of the "stability" of a retail store when we make a purchase and yet back of the active selling organization is that permanency which means ultimate satisfaction to the customer. Is a store selling its goods with the Idea of a future customer or merely to make an immediate sale? This store has been in continuous operation for 61 years in Kossuth county and this stability is.wprth more to the customer than appears at the surface. When you buy an article at Chrischilles & Herbst's you may resit assured that -it 'has, undergone the most careful scrutiny of our buyers. ' We diMfeis because we know we will be in business next year and the year after that and that it is absolutely necessary that the customer be satisfied. And from the customer's point of view, isn't it worth a great deal to know that a store is going to be in business, with the same set of business principles, year after year? That when something goes wrong as.it occasionally does in the "best regulated families", the store will be ready to "make it right?" Remember this when you make a purchase here; we are as proud of the stability of this store as though it were a bank.
