The siren, however, attracted, a large' crowd.

Part, of the Pied Piper of Ham- lontown has been re-enacted by the city council and H. Penning, formerly Ackley, now a professional rat-killer. Mr. Penning and the council last Thursday entered into an agreement whereby Penning, as Pied Piper, was to spread 4,000 units of rat bait at the city dumps, in addition to which- he was to shoot all visible rat holes with cyanide- gas. Pied Piper Henning spread the bait; gassed all holes, and the council, .departing from the example of the city fathers of Han- .lonton, paid him $15 agreed up- ion. Algona .children thus had no opportunity to follow the merry 'pipes of the Pled Piper. '' The Council was not in agree- ; ment on the necessity lor killing the rats. Conrad Herman, in whose bailiwick the dumps are located, voted against the enterprise as unnecesary. A number of Algonians in north Algona had become increasingly aware of danger of the rats spreading. Jesse Umbenhauer, caretaker at the clumps, reported that last spring he and a son, in one big rat-killing spree; accounted for 300 of the rodents; but -their • efforts scarcely' made an appreciable de-. crease in the population^ Some Algonians have been getting evening shooting practice at. the dump. -."They flash, .-.car lights oh and off and pepper the rats when the lights are suddenly turned on. Dr. Walter Eraser, some weeks,: ago, appeared before the council to ask that measures be taken,.to curb the rodents, which are well- known disease Carriers. Nothing was done at that time. It Is' reported on good authbr- 'i'ty that the dump is "fairly'alive' with the animals just before sunup every morning. Auto Free Someone, next week Friday evening at 8 p. m., final day of the county fair, will receive a new car as a gift from the fair and the Ford or Chevrolet dealers of the county. Choice of either a new Chevrolet or a new V-8 Ford will be awarded in front of the grandstand, and whoever gets it will drive it home that night. Details can be learned of any Kossuth dealer handling either car. The name of the person will be announced over an amplifying system, and five minutes .-will be allowed for him or her to come to the front of the grandstand. If the party called does not appear within the five minutes another person will be chosen, and so on till a party who personally appears is found. There will be asbolutely no strings to 'the gift, which will be an advertising stunt. • LOCALS LOSE FAST GAME HERE SUNDAY A Sunday baseball game here against Woden was Interesting, though Algona lost. The game closed with the locale at bat, two men out, two strikes, and three' balls on the batter, and two men on bases. The third and deciding strike failed to connect with-the, ball. Jos. Kelly Jr., who has done excellent fielding at shortstop and who once gained a base on balls, waited for the fourth 'ball again and guessed wrong.

CRETZMEYER TELLS ROTARIANS ABOUT OLYMPIC GAMES Dr. c. ;H. Cretzmeyer told the Rotary .club Monday about the tenth Olympic games at • (Los Angeles which he and his son Charles' attended. Opening his talk he gave a, short historical sketch of the games, telling how they originated in Greece hundred's of. yeare y before Christ and continued; for 6tfO years, whereupon they' were discontinued. They were revived In 1896. —The- Cretzmeyers sot seats in a section/.reserved for movie people, ind they recognized some of them, but were not favorably impressed with the light talk and the actio'rie of the film folk. They were located in,froht of the finish line'for most of the events, where they could pass their own judgment on many of the winners. In the next section to them were the athletes who were not taking part In current contests. Doctor Cretzmeyer considered the opening ceremonies more impressive than words can describe. The flags of 39 countries fluttered in a thrilling parade. No great show is without its mistakes. Doctor Cretzmeyer mentioned a number ..of. them at Los Angeles. For '• example, a steeplechase, was run one lap too • many, and the officials in a discus-throw were looking at a pole-vault when a long discus-throw was made. • Similar mistakes were troublesome.. • j.i-The Algonians were especially interested in a marathon race of more than' 26 miles, also in games not played in the middlewest. • -: 1 The Cretzmeyers made"-a 'number of short trips-out o'f;: Los Angeles HOW TO BATHE AT THE STATE FAIRJS TOLD You Just Choose the Day and Let Nature Do the Rest. By T. H. ChrischiUes. After waiting -13 years to attend on Iowa State Fair, I carefully selected a cold, dark, rainy Saturday, piled the entire family Into the car, and set forth in search of thrills. Saturday was "thrill day" at the, fair. It began raining just outside of Amee, and :by the time we reached the main gate rain was coming down in torrents. We parked a block from the grandstand, sand-' wiched between long lines of autos already filling the grounds despite he rain. Unfortunately, we had picked for neighbors two families who 'had brought copious boxes and baskets of lunch. Thus at noon the sight of fried chicken and potato chips proved too much for tho children, so we .and • saw former Algonians, ^Peterson, ham, and. C. X. Nicoulin, ' 'Doctor Cretzmeyer spoke In easy fashion and was heard by • the / Ro^ tarians with more Interest than had been accorded to any previous speaker in months.

Upwards of 10ft people attended. A picnic dinner on 'the lawn at noon and a ptenic 'supper were served. In the afternoon there was kittenbji}!, and a feature was a game between the : young men and the young women.. Mr, Trenary is ten- ant.of A, Hutchison's 440-acre Oakdale farm, and in the afternoon Mr, and Mrs. Hutchison, acompanied by W. C.

'It has been an observation of ours that an Algona crowd is about as disgruntled in- rain as ''any. gathering on the face of 'the placid earth; but 50,000 people at Des Moines, on a cold, bleak, danjp Saturday, were having a whale of a time. • As we -plodded, through- the muck, lushing gooey stuff : all • over ourselves 'and • everybody 'else,< we -began. to notice the . good-natured .feeling among the' th'ousa'rids. The people were happy. Darned if they weren't! •Extreme- courtesy was shown- to us toy the management when we had difficulty in securing f lye adjoining seats ,in the grand stand. It was a complete "sell-out." But-we got the seats, though just as we were about to' go to them -the sky opened up again and rain came down in buck- eteful. It was the wettest rain we ever braved without • raincoat or an umbrella. - . Seat Bath In Grandstand. .Nevertheless, as the band struck up Rain, Rain Go Away, we splashed up to the seats— and sat down in half an Inch of water! Mentally i said, *!»!•!•!*!•&", which, translated Into polite English, meane, "Now ain't this a helluva mess!" With a track which looked like a first-class Swimming pool, with both platforms inundated, and with the paddock In front of the ' grandstand well soaked; the situation certainly lookedMike a washout. But the program talent was right on the- job notwithstanding. To Show New Ford <8' Here The Kent Motor Co. announces a "Ford open-air salon" next Saturday on the vacanti corne.r across the street east "of the garage. It will open at 8 a. m. and continue till 10 p. m. All of the 14 new body types will be exhibited. The exhibit will include the much-talked of new Ford V-8. Another feature will be the Ford trucks' and a Ford chassis cut away to show construction and. operation^ A third feature will lie talking pictures about the new cars and trucks. Mr. Kent will have attendants present to demonstrate the cars: and trucks, and he says that anyone who desires a ride will be accommodated. Experienced drivers will be permitted to do their own driving. A phone message .will bring a car to the door.

Baseball fane,will see Fenton and Titonka .In action . Tuesday; Swea City and Bancroft, Wednesday;. and the Mason City Bats vs. the'Corwith Nighthawks Thursday.

There ,wljl be ;'var}ejy< exhibitions ; of trained skill In .which the slip of an Instant may •*. mean death, the beauty of a dancing-singing chorus, the thrill of bat against ball as clean singles craOk out, the sudden flash of'humor which makes the grandstand rock with laughter, and all the exhilarating feeling that comes with a crowd, for the fair this year will be crowded. Threo Days of Baclng. All three days of racing will be Derby'days, with running races. There will be three running races Tuesday, four Wednesday', and three Thursday. This will provide the thrill that draws hundreds of thousands to race tracks to see the finest horses and best Jockeye straining eVery-'tnuscle to • cross -the - finish- line ahead, of the rest. There will be only one' chance, only one heat; in these running races, and it will be a test of nerve, skill, and sporting blood to win. The management considers > any of these attractions alone wortl) fhe admission price. It.is the prospect of a large crowd which enables the fair to gather such a great exhlbj- treasurer. The organization expect* to send a large group to the meetbw here. Mr.fHolt said that similar cr- gamzatione in the Bancroft-Bust neighborhood would also send detonations. ' West Bend Pickets llucalledl The'Garfield association joined With a similar organization In Emmet county to picket West Bend* and the picketing was started Tuee- day morning. It was called off yesterday, howevei, eo far as Kossuth Is concerned. A big meeting at West Bend Tuest- <3ay night resulted in an agreement for an armistice, during whioh thV association is endeavoring to slgi». up farmers and business men in th* vicinity. , A farmer who signs up agrees to- hold his produce off the market till such time as prices reach a declared by association leaders a* adequate. , The heading of th» agreement sheet bears the wordar "Stay at home! Buy nothing! ' Sett nothing!" • ~> X<ocai -Weeds Permitted. According to the group which wa» here .yesterday, picketing does not shut off local needs., , The only object is to 'stop 'produce from beiittr shipped to city markets. If pickettnr is done here, Mr. Holt said, Algo»- ians'will be/ allowed enough butter. milk, cream,' and eggs for city i but shipments to market cem such as Des Moines, Chicago Sioux City will be halted. At present there are pickets at many towns in Humboklt county., Including Humboldt, Bode, and Thw..
