It adjoins the P. A. McArthur farm on the south about nine miles northwest of Algona. Mr. and Mrs. McArthur lived there several years and then moved to Oregon, near Portland. On Thursday, Sept. 9th, Mrs. McArthur celebrated her 100th birthday in her Oregon home and she is yet active and a worker in church and social organizations.

McArthar and their daughter and son-in- law, Mr. and Mrs. Bill Brdderson, visited with the Oregon McArthurs. It was a year later that David McArthur passed away, at the time being 92 years, of age. Mrs. McArthur was born in Scotland and came to this country when but a child. Her parents lived in Illinois and she and her husband were young and newly married when they homesteaded Kossuth land in 1864. They raised a family of 11 children. And they made their start in life en Kossuth land. Why Should He Kick hi a Dime? By Chris Reese .Hammer Mystery Solved A hammer used In construction work many years ago by the father of Theodore Moen of Decorah became lost during the building of a wall around the original Winneshiek courthouse, and was found 20 years later under the east steps of the courthouse. Moen now uses the implement in his service trips for the local gas company. She is one of Algona's fine housewives and mothers. Has a boy serving with Uncle Sam somewhere in the fighting Saturday forenoon she was active in the sales of Forget-Me- Nots. Participated in by other Algona women, all of them of the city's finer women, she contacted people on the Iowa State Bank corner in an effort to gather funds for the worthy cause of providing our soldier sick and maimed with needed and appreciated attentions in the veterans hospitals of the state. He was probably about 35 years of age. Dressed neatly and having the appearance of a better class of citizen. As he approached she held out a Forget-Me-Not. "May I sell you one of my flowers, sir?" Gruffly, he answered, "No." "But it is for a fine and worthy cause and you may give as little as you wish," she told him as she stepped alongside of him to the street crossing. "I told you, no." And this time there was utter disgust in his voice. "I've got other things to spend my money for." And he hurried on his way. An hour later I stepped into a business place in Algona where beer is sold. I bought a package of cigarets. And there, in the act of paying the clerk $2.10 for beer he had bought for himself and two friends, was our patriotic 'co-operator who couldn't spare a dime to buy a candy bar for some young fellow who had sacrificed perhaps an arm or*a leg for his country's freedom. There he stood with bleary beer-shot eyes, bragging about how much "he could hold" and two leering friends worshiping with him at his beer-sodden shrine. I am thankful that his type of citizen is not too numerous in our midst. But, at that, there shouldn't be a single one such citizen in any community these war-torn days. He lives in Algona. I don't know his name, but I have seen him on the streets often. And I wish there was some way he, and his type, could be banished to a land where they must serve, slaves if you will, tyrants and despots, flogged, abused, the rest of the-r days. And so far as I am concerned, postal regulations prevent me from writing in this column what I think of him and his breed, or to what future I wouid have them consigned. ANNOUNCING The Chris Bolie family of Burt and Betty Busch and Tommy Rentz, Algona, were Sunday dinner guests at the Ray Smith home.
