In Polk county, which includes Des Moines, the total cost of .poor relief In 1931 outside the county home was $234,741.89. and the county-home cost was $76,703,14, or $5.31 per week- per Inmate. The total for the state, including county home costs, was $4,575,398.23. The population of Kossuth being about 25,000, the average cost per inhabitant for poor relief, including the county home, was about $.1.44, or about $7.20 for the average family of five; but since many people pay little or nothing in taxes the average real cost to taxpayers was perhaps two or three times that fig-, ure and in the cases of heavy taxpayers may have »been as high as $100 or more. . BEET WEEDER DISAPPEARS ON VISIT TO MASON CITY Lakota. Aug. 23—August 3 Albert Weringa, and the John Makises went to Mason City to get their beet checks cashed and do some shopping They arrived after banking hours so cashed their checks in-a cigar store. When, the Makis family were ready to .come home they could not find Mr. Weringa and he has not been seen nor heard from, since. Some apprehension is felt as to his safety. A picture and description wee sent to the 'Mason City paper, but with no results, to Mr. Weringa has lived here date. many years and has a.. family, • . wife and FORMER ALOONA TEACHia pDc _ TO OBTAIiroOCyOR'SIEQRIE Wesley Aug7.3-Mrs.-f: W.'Bur- Lola Urbau,, and her York City, were expected »- « complete the work taining her doctor's degree. was recently Burt Boy of the Seventies Seeks News of Old Teachei* A. Hutchison received a letter a week ago from Dr. 1 John J. Mertens, Gettysburg, 8. D.,'asking information concerning Lizzie Hutchinson or Hutching, former resident north of Algona. The letter, in part, follows : "She taught school In 1875 at .what is now Burt, or in that neighborhood. I think she lived near the Black Cat, at least it was some creek, near where the Riebhoffs lived. I should like to know whether she is still alive, and if not, if any of her family live at or about Algona. I believe she married a man named Rlebhoff. "My father lived on the present townsite of Burt, but left the county in 1876—grasshoppers! — and moved to southern Minnesota. He was discouraged, for he had barely completed improving a tract of wild prairie land. There were four small children, of whom I, then six, was eldest. "I have corresponded more or less In recent year.s with Mrs.,J. W. Sullivan, W. E. Laird, Dr. W. T. Peters, Burt, and Dr. M. J. Keneflck. I Intend to revisit Algona and Burt soon, for t have, not seen either since 1876. "I learned your son's address in a newspaper.. and wrote him [Donald C. Hutchison, Cedar Rapids]. He advised me to write to you. I am well acquainted with a Mr. Bailey, an abstractor here, also with George Barr, Redfield, S. D., both former Kossuth men. "I sincerely regret .that that grand old man, Doctor Keneflck, has passed on. I often met him and enjoyed his company In Chicago at meetings of the C. & N. W. railway surgeons. "I remember plainly how things looked in Koasuth in 1876, and sometime this fall, about the time of the next surgeons' meeting, I intend to come back and look around. "I remember Mr. and Mrs. Cor- dlngley, and also a man whom I worshipped, a Mr. Chrischllles, a learned and well-informed man. He always gave us 'kids' candy when we came to Algona and stopped at his store. , We 'kids' therefore Insisted that the family trade wholly, repeatedly, and constantly at the Chrischilles store. Once when we were at the store Mr. Chrischilles was absent, and it almost broke our hearts." Since this letter was received it has been learned that Miss Hutchinson, who was a schoolmate of Aunt ' "Jen" Wadeworth, married Matt Riebhoff-,; and'that they now live at Portland. Ore. John >Rleb- hoff, who lives.near Riverview cemetery, and Frank, north of town, are Matt's brothers; and the late Mrs. John Wlnkel, Bancroft, was a sister, as Is. also Mrs. J. B. Winkel, former Algonian who now lives with .her daughter, Mrs. R. H. Miller in California. There were mangers in the Riebhoff family. oth- GAME ALGONIAN PITCHED 41 YEARS AGO IS RECALLED The Sporting News, weekly sports newspaper, in reporting the opening >pf ; the~new, .Cleveland,:.baU.. par,k»:j:e-; called;.the opening .of ; . the former 1 park"In-1891 'in. which James--Puryea, Algonian, pitched- for the Cincinnati Reds against "Cy" Young, who hurled for the Cleveland Spiders/ .'Duryea '-Ibst'-'- the . game" : to Young, who was acknowledged at that time as one of the .greatest ball picthers. Duryea, however, on other bccaslohs"" outpltched and won from Young. • <!•••••'•••...• That game was .played May 1, 1891, before a crowd of 9,500, one of the largest In sporting annals .at that time. Mr. Duryea, who is now employed at the Hub billiard parlor, was one of the old-time headline pitchers. He gained and held the nickname of "Cyclone" Jim Duryea when pttching for St. Paul. He was associated with such old-timers as "Pop" Anson, one of the "grand old men" of baseball,'and Ban Johnson, who died only a year ago. Mr. Duryea and Anson were great friends and after the baseball season was over they often spent -many weeks deer hunting and fishing in northern Minnesota. When Cox was democratic candidate for president 'in 1920 against Harding Mr. Duryea 'wrote .him recalling .the'' old days when Cox was baseball writer for a Cincinnati newspaper and "Cyclone" was pitching. .There was much friendship between the.two at the time. ( Mr. Cox replied to s Mr. Duryea's letter, recalling him,' and wished Mr. Duryea success in his democratic race lor sheriff. •Mr. Duryea went to Cincinnati from St. Paul, and later went to Washington. He will be 72 years old In September, but appears to be ten years younger. Mr. Duryea was much interested in a story about "Bllly u: Sunday' on the editorial page..of Saturday's Des Moines Register. It told of the early life and baseball career of the famous evangelist. Mr. Duryea often pitched to Sunday when the latter was with the Chicago Cubs. Ten or. 12 years.ago, when Mr. Sunday was holding revivals .at Mason City, Mr. Duryea attended one night, and at dinner the pair talked over old times. • TWO GOOD HOPE MEN HURT IN FALLS FROM WAGONS Good Hope.

The couple therefore haen't been able to get a license. To help the pair out, Mr. Marlon recently wrote P. P. Zerfass to ask whether Iowa had such a law, and if so whether there was a way to get aroun it. Mr. Zerfass didn't know, . but he and Dr. C. D. Schaap ' went to the clerk's office to consult the latter's wife, who is deputy clerk, and she said that, one of the district judges could suspend the Iowa law in special cases. Mrs. Schaap 'called Judge Heald, Spencer, who said he would be glad to oblige under the circumstances. So the couple will be happily married here. Mr. Zerfass adds that they don't know it yet, but the. ceremony is to be performed in front of the grandstand at a 1 night fair, and he threatens that he will not turn over the license unless this is agreed to. Mr. Zerfass desires the statement made that there is no ballyhoo, blarney, bunk, press agent dope, or believe-lt-or-not stuff about this, for he has the letter to prove genuineness and will show It to any doubting Thomas.
