The charge beginning on that date will be— IN KOSSUTH COUNTY Either Algona paper, per year $2.50 Both Algona papers, per year $4.00 Either Algona paper, six months $1.75 Both Algona papers, six months $2,75 OUTSIDE KOSSUTH COUNTY Either paper, one year $3.00 Both papers, one year $5.00 Either paper, six months $2.00 Both papers, six months $3.00 Subscribers can save money by paying their subscription before September first. Practically all papers have been obliged to raise subscription rates on account of war conditions, and the Algona Upper Des Moines and the Kossuth County Advance have^at last been compelled to follow the general trend: BIGGEST RAIN OF YEAR ON TUESDAY While we have had more precipitation the past summer then is usual it remained for Tuesday evening to give Us the heaviest rain falling on one day during the year. Within an hour the rainfall reached 1.98 inches, according to measurement by Weatherman Harry Nolte. Notwithstanding the excess of moisture we have had the past month, Mr. Nolte reports that corn and soy beans were never better for this time of year than they are now. He said that the ears were large and well formed and are really starting to dent now and that, according to records of over 70 years, with June more than normal in heat, corn will be well past frost danger in shorter time. State bureau records prove that with an above normal heat for June there has never been a frost failure, and that's the situation today. Accordingly the wet season has not injured corn and the out look for a bumper crop is encouraging, even with a so-called early frost. The record for the week: Hi Low Rain Thursday.

C., spent the week-end in Algona visiting old friends. Roy was manager of the Graham store prior to joining the navy where he now holds a rating of yeoman second class. •-. He has asked for submarine duty and expects to be assigned soon. The Inghams were entertained Monday evening at Cook's by the members of the Graham force which included Mrs. Viola Douglas, Mrs. Lily Foth and Rose Arend. The Inghams had a very unusual and .pleasant experience while in Washington. They were sitting in a little hedge surrounded park near the statue of Cardinal Gibbons, when who should walk around the hedge but Lt. (j.g.) R. B. Waller, of the Algona Upper Des Moines, who is at present stationed in Washingtpn. Russ was out for a little \stroll after supper, and noticing the attractive little spot decided to walk around the hedge and sit down on one of. the benches. The three spent an enjoyable evening together discussing- Algona .affairs. Another Kossuth Boy Added to Casualty List A letter written by Harold Lloyd, son of Mrs. Rose Lloyd, of Charles City, somewhere in the North America area (presumably Alaska or the Aleuthians) on August 8, and addressed to his mother, tells of the death and burial of Laurence Neuroth, Kossuth soldier and stationed with Harold Lloyd. Parents of Laurence, Mr. and Mrs. Albert Neuroth, of Wesley, received word from the government that their son had met death in "North America" on August 7th. Just five days previous to that message the parents had received word that Laurence had arrived safely "overseas." The letter from Lloyd states that Laurence met death by drowning which might mean that it was in line of duty. The Letter. August 8 1943. Dear Mother: Got your letter today that you had mailed July 19. I have bad news for you. Lester (Bud) Me- tille and I will have to come home without Laurence Neuroth. We i us t came back from burying him. He drowned yesterday. Me- tille, Laurence, and I have been together ever since the morning we left to go to the army. Metille and I were at the grave when the chaplain gave the sermon. Mother, when you see his folks tell them Metille and I will write one of these first days. I guess this is about all for now. Thought I'd drop you a few lines to let you know about Laurence. I am all right and tell everybody hello. Harold Lloyd. Kossuth List Grows And so another of Kossuth's fighting men becomes a martyr to the cause of freedom and finds his final resting place in a far-off land. Whether he is buried in Alaska or one of the Aleutian Islands will not of course be learned until this war is over. However the fact that his commander stated "North America" would lead to believe that he was in the northern area. Lawrence had been a member of the armed forces since March, 1941. He was 31 and unmarried. He is survived by his parents, three brothers, Edward, Urban, Zeno, and three sisters, Mrs. Loretta Kopel, o Haverhill, Mrs. Jack Grant, o Britt, and Mrs. Nate Studer, o Wesley. The father operates service station at Wesley. v . ham was employed for a'time in the Russian embassy.

The Algona post office also has information as to qualifications required. All mill managers from the ele ven hemp mills in Iowa wer called to Mason City last Wednes day to receive special instruction for handling the hemp harvest Much additionad and valuable in formation was obtained for ou ring meetings which are now in progress. Hemp growers are reminde that now is a good time to bu .their"Supply;'Of, binder twine?'?6 hemp harvest.._ From 2% ' to pounds per acre is an estimati of twine needed for tieing the bundles. Oi' course there will b variations in the amount of twim needed, depending upon the class of hemp. The hemp cutting machines wil be set so as to leave a four inch stubble. The purpose is to keep the fallen hemp from laying directly on the ground and so tha air may circulate under the hemp which tends to hasten the retting process. Three tons of retted hemp straw' can be hauled on a rack 8x18 feet. Hemp should be harvested when the pollen bearing (male) are in full or late bloom. At this stage the lower leaves have mostly fall en and the upper leaves are yellowing. So far as the quality and yield of fibre are concerned the crop may be harvested any time in the four weeks between clos- soming and early seed forming Over ripe hemp does not produce good quality fibre. An abstract of survey to date (Aug. 2.1) covering 3893 acres of our entire hemp acreage, shows an estimate of 1220 acres of excellent hemp, 1405 acres above average, 940 acres below average and 212 acres of poor hemp. There are 116 acres hailed out. Excellent fields of hemp, and fields that should grade par excellent, inspected the past few days are those of A. B. Cherland, R. T. Angus, O. T, Cherland, A. J, Dittmer, Roy Ringsdorf, Edward Kain, Nick Mergen, Edward Wichtendahl, Douglas Wildin, W. J. Ziegler, James J, Elbert, Jahn F. Weber, Hugh Raney. John Thill, Henry Schnakenberg, Kain Bros, and Hans J. Presthus. More names 'of growers having excellent hemp will be published in this column next week. You can do your part to hasten the end of the war by Wr-Wr-Wr- Wrapping another war bond around your present bundle. If you have not returned your empty hemp sacks, please remind yourself to do so your next trip to town. Leave at Rising elevator or hemp office. Again, may we remind you t<< return your empty hemp sacks? Please leave at the Rising Elevator or at this office. SHORT HEMP WILL BRING $10 A TON DELIVERED HERE According to word received from the Chicago office shor hemp under 32 inches will be pur chased by the local mill and $11 per ton will be paid for it, deliver ed. This clears up a situation a to the disposal of short hemp, be low grade, and which it has been previously suggested should b plowed under, or cut and burned The short hemp may be delivere loose, or in bundles. _Jt. will j 'used tinder ' the" stacks ""of goo hemp, to serve as an absorben foundation for the stacks. Also where the short hemp is brough in the grower will have his contract canceled on the short hemp acreage and the new plan should prove thus a benefit and not total loss to the grower.
