The county bar association, of which Mr. Danson was a -member, attended in a body and also attended the burial at Riverview. cemetery. It had been known for a week or more preceding his death : that Mr. Dansons condition was critical. He had figured so long in the activities of the town that there were many inquiries dally for news of his condition. He made no fight for life, seemingly being weary and ready to go. -Mr. Danson, who would have been 71 had he lived till October 27, .was ,borh'of English Immigrants at Pewaukee, Wis., in 1861, the youngest of ten children, -all now- .dead,:'-His; parents had been married in England; ..•-:.In 1885 Mr. Danson came .to Algona, and he lived here 47 years. On July 25, 1890, he was married to Cora Maude Walker, who died . in 1916. He never remarried. There are six children, all of whom were here for the funeral: Florence (Mrs. Wm. K. Scholten), Spirit Lake; May (Mrs.- L. W. Fox), Algona; Robert O,, Oklahoma City,; Nell (Mrs. R.*H. Greenwood), Sidney; Dorothy (Mrs. L. D, Lehan), Sioux City; and Paul A., ; Algona. There are eight grandchildren, two of whom bear their grandfather's name. After he .came here Mr. Danson Studied law under his brother, the late R. J. Danson, and in due time was admitted to th'e-bar on examination. Some years later R, J. moved to Spokane, Wash., and W. C. Continued the practice of law here. j*pr many years,- under the firm name of Danson & Butler, Mr. Danson was also associated in the real estate business with E. B. Butl>?r, who. moved to Atascadero, Calif., a few years ago. " . . * Mr. Danson continued to practice law after the Danson & Butler partnership was dissolved, and • on the death-of the late S. W. Crowell he was apppinted justice pf the peace which office he still held at death. His early education was obtained in the Fewaukee high school and at a normal training school in *he same town. During his entire residence here :>fr. Panson was a leading member of the Methodist'church, and for a time he served as Sunday school superintendent.

An attempt to force entrance into the vault of the Exchange State bank, Wesley, Monday night or early Tuesday morning failed, when the steel door resisted efforts to open it after the combination dial had been knocked off. The same night the Farmers Cooperative elevator was broken into, and change totaling 80 cents was taken. Two elevators at Tltonka were entered last week Wednesday night, but nothing of value was taken. ^ Entrance" to the bank was gained through a rear window, and a chisel and sledge were used to 'knock off the dial. But the time lock was on, so the burglars were foiled. Attempt Made After Midnight. It, is believed that the attempted -burglary occurred after midnight. A pool hall 'across the street was open till that hour, and no signs of activities at the bank were noted up to that time. Entrance to the Wesley elevator was gained through a west window. The cash drawer was pried open. Currency had been removed from the till by Edw. Hildman, manager, when he closed for the night. This was the second time that the Wesley bank had been the'object of 'burglars. A year ago In October a lone bandit entered the toank one morning when it was opened for business and forced the employee to the floor.. He then grabbed... $700 and fled with a companion who ; remained outside in a car. The culprit 'is believed to be now serving time in a penitentiary for another bank robbery. . C. J.

Joynt, local Milwaukee 'agent, and George St. John, .driver of one of Mr. Post's trucks, brought in a verdict of accidental .death arid attached no blame to the shovel operator.

Moisture from rains had made the operating handles slippery, and just ad the, bucket started the operator's hands slipped, and it swung . back towards the car. Belling was caught, the bucket' hitting him in the chest and brushing; him against the Bide of the car. He dropped, but before he hit the ground the bucket had swung again and crushed, his skull.
