PAGE EIGHT ALGONIANS IN CAR ACCIDENT NEAR HUMBOLDT Last week's Humboldt Republican published the following story in which Algonlans will be interested: Two women, a Miss Matson of Algona, and Mrs. John Becker, of St. Joe, received severe cuts Wednesday when the cars in which they were riding struck the raised culvert on the new highway 169 about a mile and a half south of Humboldt, at a rapid rate of speed, throwing the passengers to the tops of the cars. "Miss Matson, who was with Mr. and Mrs. Goddard, of Algona, was riding In the back seat of the car at the time of the accident, slightly before noon Wednesday. 'She struck her forehead on the top o£ the car, tearing the scalp down over the eyeball. Medical attention was sought in Humboldt and several stitches were required to close the gash. Mr. and Mrs. Goddard were unhurt and the car was not damaged. "The car in which Mrs. Becker was riding with her husband and daughter, approached the same culvert about six o'clock the same day. likewise, Mrs. Becker wns ridiniv in the rear seat and was thrown to the. top, receiving a severe cut on her elbow. Several panes of glatss in the car wore shattered but neither Mr. Becker nor the daughter were hurt. Mrs. Becker's injury wins also cared for by Dr. E. W. Sproule. "The new highway 1GS) on which the two accidents occurred are kept open only for the convenience of motorists, since graders are at work on the stretch from the top of the Johnson hill south to the Haviland corner. The culverts have been finished some time, and the particular one causing the accfdents has been raised to the level which the entire highway will 'take when it . has finally been graded. "The raised culvert is unnotice- ablei until the driver is upon It, and a person unfamiliar with the road is greatly endangered. A number of persons in Humboldt have declared that as they traveled the road they did not see the raise until only a few feet away and threw on -the •brakee, even then hitting the bump hard. Several have suggested that red lights ought to be placed at the culvert and also a second one about a half mile farther south. However, there are signs at either end of the new highway warning motorists to drive carefully since the road is only open for their convenience." NO, HAVTNG IS HALTED BY R, I JAILROAD Trouble has arisen between the state highway commission and the Bock Island railroad over the expense of building an underpass on the right-of-way at the western edge of Armstrong, says the Swea City Herald. The railroad company claims it does not have the money to proceed with the work. No definite agreement had been reached Tuesday inornlng of last week, and Supt. Momyer, of J. S. McLaughlin & Sons company, paving contractors on road No. 9, was still planning to bring the paving up to the underpass from the west. Then the machinery will be moved to the opposite side of the track and the short gap into Armstrong completed. "It is said the state will pay 60 per cent of the expense of building the underpass. In addition the state pays for the grading and paving the road bed. Unless the question is settled soon, travel on road No. 9 will be deflected through -Armstrong's main street to the north edge of the town and thenee follow the old route of the highway across the river bridge to join the paving again. "Tuesday morning of last week the paving machinery was moved to Algonian's Bride WASH FROCKS, AlA SI2ES, $1.00 to $2.95.-^-The Elite. ^1<M42 WANTED "" CATTLE TO PAS* ture.—J. F.

TWO BUSINESS BLOCKS GO IN SPENCER FIRE (Continued from Page 1.) cer Legion post was mustered, and ropes were strung around the burning- area, after which the district was patrolled all night. Bank Records Safe in Vault. Money and records in the burned bank were put into the .vaults, which are supposed to be fireproof and are believed safe. The vaults cannot be opened till they are cool, and streams of water were directed at them during the fire to keep them as cool as possible. The telephone office was over the drug store in which the fire start- red, and the telephone girls had to be rescued in approved movie style by firemen. Before they left, calls for outside help were sent out. In a few minutes the switchboard, new'.y installed this year at a cost of $100,000, was in ruins in the basement of the building. A temporary switchboard was installed Sunday in an abandoned garage building back of the former location, and the toll lines were reopened Monday. Facilities of the Tangney hotel were turned over to 75 telephone men and firemen called to fight the blaze. High tension wires carrying thousands of volts of electricity were burned in Doth alleys and fell to the ground. All electric po'wer in the business district and in most of the residence district had to be cut off to prevent electrocution of firemen or people who might step on live wires. The scene was lighted Sunday night on'y by the flames and brilliant moonlight, which gave the ruins a ghastly and grotesque atmosphere of unreality. Hundreds of people who visited the town at J. B.

The contractors expected to reach the bridge over the Des Moinc* river west of Armstrong Tuesday of this week. From 1,600 to 2,000 feet of paving are being laid dally. "The McLaughlin company has Offered concessions in the expense of building the underpass, but the railroad company has offset these concessions with claims, It was said Tuesday the McLaughlins, who have the contract for paving Armstrong's main street, would finish that work before the next set-up at Maple Hill is made. In the meantime it is possible the underpass controversy can be settled before the paving crew leaves Armstrong and the work completed under the railroad right-of-way. "Shouldering of the ten miles of paving between Swea City and Armstrong has been under way the last ten days by the McGulre grading crew. Local travel has been O&'ng the four miles between Swea City and the Swea township community hall for several weeks.
