ALGONA STORY IN MASONIC JOURNAL The Zare-phabh News for September, published by the Valley of Davenport, Orient of Iowa, Ancient and Accepted Rite of Freemasonry, carried this mention of an Algonian: J. F. Overmyer, member of Zarephath, was recently honored by a complimentary dinner •given by the Rotarians and Ki- wanians of Algona. Brother • Overmyer has served as superintendent of the Algona public schools 30 years. Harvey Ing- Tiam and Gardner Cowles were guest speakers. Mr. Cowles was the first superintendent of Algona's schools, and Mr. Ingham Is an alumnus. Last year marked the fruition of his dreams when the new high school building was completed. The building was dedicated by Dr. Walter Jessup, who stated that it was one of the finest examples of the best type of modern high schools. Brother Overmyer also has the distinction of having his high school stand first over all •high schools in the state in its •class in scholastic standing for several consecutive years. It was noticed in another mention •that John H. Cowles, Des Moinee, is •Grand Commander o£ the Orient of Iowa. Mr. Cowles Is a 33rd degree •member, election to' which is a rare honor.

J. BONNSTETTER, one mile east of Corwlth, democratic candidate for representative in Hancock county. Mr. Bonnstetter is a brother of Martin Bonnstetter, Algona, and the uncle of Representative A. H. Bonnstetter, Kossuth, and Antoinette Bonnstetter, Algona-Humboldt school nurse. As will be noticed, uncle and nephew look somewhat alike.. INDEPENDENTS AND ESTHERVILLE PLAY TO SCORELESS TIE The new Algona independent football team played its opening game at Estherville Sunday. The teams were evenly matched, with the result that the game ended in a scoreless tie. Each team was weak on offense but exceptionally good on defense. Algona showed the usual early season irregularities. Estherville had had the advantage of two games, but failed to surpass Algona on field play. Early in the first o.uarter Estherville recovered a bad pass from center, which Elerick could not get, on Algona's 2-ft. line. This was the only real chance of scoring either team had during the game. The threat was soon wiped out, for on the first play Estherville fumbled and Algona recovered on its own 4- yd. line. Standing behind his own goal, got off a perfect aerial punt midfield, and the All-Stars' was over. The only Algona threat came in the fourth quarter, NEW AUXILIARY COUNTY OFFICERS INSTALLED AT S,C, The ^county Legion Auxiliary held its 29th quarterly convention at the Legion hall, Swea City, last week Tuesday afternoon.

Reed past rush No SCANDAL (Continued from page !•) when Elerick took a paes from Lichter for a 20-yd. run, but was tackled by the safety man whom Lilndbloom partially blocked out. Neither team had the ball within its opponents' 20-yd. line except in these two plays. The plunging of Lrichter anc Lindbloom, and the running of Elerick and Reed, were up to mid- season form, but the blocking of the same men must be greatly 1m- roved. The boys are working on his and other faults. When they )lay the opening game at home Oc- ober 18 they expect to be playing tear-perfect football. Algona's line had to be filled with ubstitutes due to injuries. The boys id well to hold a much heavier and powerful forward wall; few gains vere made through them. The start- ng lineup follows: St. John, 1. e.; Cosgrove, 1. t.; Adams, 1. g.; K Moore, c.; J. Moore r. e.; Martinek, t.; Bradfield. r. e.; Elerick, q.. b.; Reed, r. h.; Lindbloom, 1. h.; Lichter, f. b. Substitutes—Parsons for J. Moore, J. Moore for Parsons, Shepherd for St. John, McDonald for J-. Moore. Five men are expected to play with the team who could not be with it Sunday: Mercer, Walker, Winkle, Miller, and Samp.

A fourth rabbit found a vent and got through It, but was In part etunned , by chicken wire above the vent and was caught by the dogs outside the enclosure* After the main show a number of rabbits were released-to train young greyhounds In the sport.

In each pair of dogs one wore a white collar, the other a red one, and the Judges hoisted a white or red flag to Indicate which dog won. WALKER TELLS OF WASHINGTON 0, C, W. F. Waljker, sfeoke before the Rotary'club Monday/and described a number of federal buildings at Washington, D.' d.', where he was doorkeeper In the Senate chamber last winter. He told of the Wash- ngton cathedral, the Shakespearean library, the Lincoln memorial, Mt, Vernon, and other points of Interest. Mr. Walker also gave the cost of each building and listed the material used in construction, saying that :he government buildings are costly because they are designed to last a ong time'and so must be made of marble and steel not only for beauty but for endurance. Mr. Walker compared the cities of ettyeburg, Washington, and Richmond to Mankato, Algona, and Des Moines, respectively, saying that ettysburg is as far north of Washington as Mankato Is north of Algona, and 'Richmond as far south of Washington as Des Moines from Alona. Mr. Walker also gave personal opinions of a number of senators whom he heard In debate while on duty'as doorkeeper. Mr. Walker gave the same talk last Thursday before the Klwanis club. •Harry Hull, examiner-in-charge of the Kossuth County 'State bank, was introduced as a new member. Visitors were: K. E. Wight, Clayton, N. M., and E. H. Handler. The K""n - ians voted to meet this winter In •'•'e basement of the Methodist chuich. Next Monday evening the Rotarians will entertain the Anns at an evening party at the The local attend a tri-city meeting at Forest City next week Wednesday. Country club clubhouse. Rotarians are invited to great as to break windows In three or four nearby houses, and many fish in the stream were stunned or killed. Some were game fish, but ostly they were carp or bullheads. any that had •coroner to collect is not questioned; the point is merely that it should have been'paid out of the poor fund rather than the county fund." No Hint of Peculations. There was no showing in case, nor was there any hint, any of the officials concerned been guilty, or were even suspected, of pecuniary peculation. All that was involved was methods of bookkeeping and collection, and in the coroner's ease of his right to collect certain charges. Between private parties none of these complaints would rank as anything more than a. difference in methods of conducting business; but since the accounts of public officials were concerned, and because they were played up in a. daily newspaper, careless readers were likely to jump to conclusions not warranted by the facts, which did an injustice to tfce officials involved, especially since two of them are candidates for reelection.
