PAOE EIGHT LEASE LEAVES FOR POST AT SPIRIT LAKE Six Years' Work in District Shows Progress. "The Rev. W. H. -Lease, who came 'here six years ago as superintendent of the Algona district o£ the Northwest Iowa Methodist Conference, leaves today for his new post as pastor of the Spirit Lake Metho- dst church. He was. pastor of the Cherokee Methodist church when he was promoted to the superintendence, succeeding the Rev. J. J. Bushnell. In a report to the recent Northwest Iowa Conference at Sioux City, Mr. Lease called attention to the difficulties In the district which beset him during the last half of his term because of the hard times, particularly the closing of 19 banks. These conditions were paralleled in the other three districts of the conference. Churches Showed Progress. This greatly handicapped keeping lip budgets, including ministerial salaries, and prevented many church improvements and the clearing away of debts which would otherwise have been accomplished. Yet despite this widespread condition, many churches did settle debts and make improvements, and In some cases new churches were built. On the whole, therefore, the Algeria district, Mr. Lease said, felt that it ihad no apologies to make for its record in such -trying times. In. the year just closed, group music festivals were kept up and the annual all-district festival was held at Algona with a large attendance. In the field of religious education a seminar was held with an attendance of 51, and six standard training schools, plus three local schools, were conducted, with a total attendance of 553. At a cost of only $3G2, 29 daily vacation bible schools were conducted, staffed by 173 teachers and with an attendance of 1743 children. Evangelism Stressed. Throughout his incumbency Doctor Lease stressed evangelism. Optimistic and enthusiastic, he was indefatigable in pursuit of his work, and Algona district Methodists generally do not recall another superintendent who put such boundless vitality into the performance of his duties. At the last quarterly conference of the Algona church a resolution was adoptsd favoring his return to the superintendency, but this was incompatible with church law, which limits incumbency to six years. Mrs. Lease has been active in the local church during her stay here. For five years ending last April she was president of the district Woman's Home Missionary society. There are three children in the family: lone and Howard, both Morningsid^ graduates, the former now teaching at Britt, the latter at Schleswig; and Margaret, senior in high school.

Doxsee, former Algonian, now in the land title business at Redwood City, Calif., gave a short talk on business conditions on the coast before the Kiwanis club last Thursday. Hard -times are as apparent in California as elsewhere, he said. "Adjusted" wages are the rule, and many executives formerly in the $10,000 to $25,000 salary class are out of work, while many small corporations have failed. An effort has, however, been made to-keep at least one member of every family employed. It had been a common practice for both husband and wife to work, but under the stress of hard times one or the other has, as a rule, had to drop out to make way for a wage earner In a family with no one else employed. at 7:15, closing at 9 p. m. A committee of women will have charge of the children during the performance. An advance ticket sale is be- ng conducted, and reserved seats may be obtained at the James drug store Monday.

FARM HOME AT GALBRAITH BURNS TO GROUND TUESDAY 'Fire destroyed the farm home of the Joseph Blumers, two miles south of Galbraith, Tuesday afternoon, in a hot blaze which neighboring farmers had a hard time to keep from spreading to other buildings. The fire was discovered at 3 o'clock, and it is believed to have started in the roof from a faulty chimney. Neighbors helped carry out all furniture. A Lu Verne fire truck answered a call, but the blaze was too far along to be stopped. A cistern was nearly drained in the attempt to save other buildings. The loss was partly covered by insurance. Bankers in Meeting. Burt, Oct. 11—The county bankers' association met here Thursday evening. Supper was served at the Marvin hotel, after which a business meeting was held at the bank.

Sherwood, who has sold his Parkersburg Eclipse, writes that for the present he is serving as manager of the iParkersburg creamery, which was closed some time ago. He Is trying to get it going again, arid later he will decide on his future activities. The Advance and the Eclipse had been exchanging, but when the Eclipse was sold the exchange was discontinued, but Mr. Sherwood has since subscribed for the Advance, and in his letter ordering the paper he was kind enougl) to say: "I want the Advance because it covers old Kossuth like a blanket; your paper is the best county paper in Iowa, and this is no bull." It was the senior editor of the Advance who, 32-years ago, brought Mr. Sherwood to Burt and made him foreman of the Monitor, later selling the paper to him when Mr. Dewel was elected district court clerk just 30 years ago, or in the fall of 1902. * ' THINK OF IT! $11.95 FOR a complete radio with newest tubes and dynamic speaker—a limited number. —Gamble Stores. 19,-S STATE OFFICIALS HOLD MASONIC MEETING HERE A Masonic masters' and wardens' fellowship meeting lor this section of the state was held at the local Masonic Temple Tuesday night, with an attendance from many lodges in north central Iowa.
