DUNCAN'IN AGAIN' FOR DRIVING WHILE INTOXICATED George Duncan, well-known character, was jailed again Monday by Sheriff li."E. Hovey, this time on a charge of driving while Intoxicated. Duncan ran a car into fce ditch, where it was upset, a mile this side of Armstrong. Duncan had three companions, but"they were not drunk. Over their protests he insisted on driving. When Sheriff Hovey and County Attorney Shumway Investigated, Duncan told them he had run into a deposit of dirt on the . new paving. No dirt -was found, and the-of fleers- believe he saw hone, at least not till the car had left the paving. In the upset Duncan suffered a 6-inch gash from the bridge of his nose to~'a point midway on his,skull. The cut went to the bone and the skin was laid back on both sides. His companions were not hurt. Duncan had been out of jail less than-three weeks. He was released June 11, when he was sentenced by Judge Davidson at Emmetsburg to a year In jail for carrying concealed weapons. The sentence was .sus^ pended during good behavior. Driving while drunk constituted a breach of parole, and the county attorney is debating whether to put Duncan up for trial on an Intoxicated driving charge, which carries a year's penitentiary retirement, give him a jail sentence arid fine, or revoke his parole. If the parole is revoked Duncan's care will Involve expense to the county, whereas if he drawn a,year in the penitentiary he will be transferred to state Tonight's Band Concert Program March—Salute to Washington - „ Kiefer Overtures-Princess of India—King Bobbin' Blues .

Algona and Bancroft will meet Saturday at the Fourth of July celebration at the fall- grounds, and the locals will play Lone Rock on the local .diamond next Sunday. There are to be four changes in the Grays' lineup, it is predicted. Algona lost two games Sunday, one in the afternoon to Thor, 9-2, the other a night game at Corwith, S-t. In each game errors made thR opposing team a present of at least one score. Changes are expected in the local line-up for future games. The Grays play good ball, but errors and uncertain hitting are damaging the team's record. The Algona Military band accompanied the team to Corwith Sunday and played before the game and between innings before an appreciative audience. The box scores for the Algona- Thor and Algona-Corwith games follow: Algona— AB R H PO A E INSURANCE FIRM HERE HAS LOSS AT SPENCER The National Druggists Insurance company, of which Al Falkenhalner is secretary and general manager since it was organized, had insurance on three of the four drug stores that burned at Spencer, and had insurance on two other buildings. The concerns insured by the local company were the Otto Bjornstad drug store, where the fire started, the Cummings drug store, tlio Johnson drug store, and the •Hlrleman jewelry store. The loss was in the neighborhood of $60,000, but all except a 'small part of the load, was carried by reinsurance so the actual loss to the local company was small. Mr. Falkenhaincr was at the Okobojis for the week and on learning of the fire drove down. Eugene Murtagh was also at the lakes and went to the fire, and Melzar Falkenhainer left as soon as th e news reached Algona. Thus the company was represented by three men on the ground before the fire had gone out. There were adjusters for 50 different companies on the ground Sunday.

This is believed to be an equitable ettlement of the dust problem on he street which has arisen as the esult of heavy traffic en route to he swimming pool or the Ambrose A. .Call state park. The residents lad held out for total cost borne by he city, but the council believed hat proposal unfair. The council refused to .buy a cash -eglster for the swimming pool of- ice.

The main, part of the blasting of buildings in the path of the fire had been done before the Des Moines man collapsed, and the fire had been checked by the combination of dynamite and the river water pressure. Mr. Smith was called on to dynamite, a few of-.the' walls. that .were •leaning and threatening'to fall : on unwary pedestrians, and also blew up a wooden shed in the path of the blaze. ' . Mayor Specht and" City Superintendent Jos. Kelly, and others drove to. Spencer Sunday to offer Algona's aid in anything they could do. At first it was planned to ship in water, because the Spencer water supply was fouled with river water, into which the city sewers empty, but it is believed that this will not now be necessary. • . . . Some of the-city firemen discussed , taking the large city pumping truck over ' Saturday evening, but it was not needed. It was planned to load the Algona truck on a special train from Mason City which was to take a Mason City fire truck to Spencer,'. but the train was called off before it could be got ready HORSES DIE AS INTENSE HEAT MAKES RECORD Mercury Climbs to 101 Sunday for High Mark. The heat of the last ten days has set a new record for June, weather observers believe. In few years has June hatl such a continued stretch of intense heat, with day and night temperatures hitting the high spots. In 1930 July and August were unbearably hot, but June was not overly warm, though one or two uncomfortable days were registered. The high mark of 110 was reached here in August, 1930. Animals, especially horses, have been the most affected by* the Intense heat. w. A. Vigars, of the Al gona Rendering works, and Ira Hewett, of the Swea City plant, have been working at capacity for a week. Both have had to refuse some animals. Some farmers^ It Is reported, have taken advantage of bright moonlight evenings to plow corn. Others have risen with the dawji to work in the cool of the morning, laying off at noon for the rest of the day. Farmers who have worked horses hard during the heated period have suffered losses from overheating. Swimming Pool is Busy. Hundreds of bathers have sought relief at the municipal swimming pool. Others have sought cooling breezes at the Ambrose A. Cali state park or in like shady spots But even the coolest was uncom fortably warm Sunday, when the mercury rose to 101 for • the high mark of the year here.

On reaching Lambertson they noticed a car parked along the road just at the edge of the town at a curve. Mr. Bash, who was driving his car, slowed down.
