Dewel Is starting his 25th year of service to the public as editor and publisher of that paper. To have served that long In such a capacity Is an achievement worthy of evaluation, but to hftve finished 24 years of active promulgation of community activities and civic enterprises, and to have won the friendship and admiration of thousands by his keen •perception of the needs of the public he has served, and by the falrmlnded and Impartial treatment ho has • given same through his editorial columns, is worthy of a much higher tribute. The writer is young- in comparison to Editor Dewel's service in this line of endeavor, and his kind advice when we needed it most, and our sincere and deep admiration for his literary ability, lead us to believe that Kossuth county has been indeed fortunate to have such a man numbered among ita citizens. The Whlttemore Champion sincerely hopes that Editor Dewel will be able to serve his community for another 25 years and congratulates him on the achievements he has attained during the years that have 'passed.

In 1928, and there were | twice as many votes as there were in the primary election of 1930. The total presidential vote In 1928 was 9514 In ,Kossuth; in 1932, i 10,071. In 1930 the vote on U. S. senator, head of the ticket, was only 5162. One hundred seventy-one of the additional' votes this year were cast In Algona. In 192S the total Algona vote was 1846; this year, 2017. President Hoover's total In Algona in 1928 was 1101. His total this year was 925, only 176 fewer than four years ago. President-elect Roosevelt picked up the 176 Hoover loss, plus the 171 new votes, to make a total of 1092, as compared with Alfred E. Smith's total of 745 in 1928. Vote on County Officers. The average republican vote on county offices was 4269, and the average democratic vote on the same offices was 4965. It is interesting to note, in connection with straight- ticket voting, how close the respective totals cling to the average. The republican and democratic votes for county offices follow: G. O. P.. Auditor 4370 Treasurer 4467 Clerk .4078 Sheriff 4301 Recorder ; 4292 Attorney 4105 Coroner .4269 The republican votes on MRS, J, M, MOOBE LOSES A BROTHER Mrs. J. M. Moore received a message last week Tuesday announcing the death of her*'brother, Robert 6. Parsons, prominent railroad civil and construction engineer at Chattanooga, Tenn., formerly of Lexington, Ky. He fell sick the Sunday before at the Elks club and later suffered a stroke. He was a bachelor. t ' - ' For many years Mr. Parsons served the Southern railroad in -Tennessee, Kentucky, and North Carolina, and he double-tracked the Southern between Chattanooga and Olltewah, including a tunnel. Mr. Parsons was a Baptist. The Elks had charge of the funeral. Jj M. 'Parsons, prominent Des Molnes attorney, was a brother, and he and Mrs. Moore-were the only surviving near relatives. Neither Mrs. Moore nor her Des Molnes brother could attend the funeral. In his later years ;Robert Was chief engineer for the Kentucky | state highway commission. In the war he had charge of a million- dollar government contract. Hla parents, died near Marlon when he was six, and he made his own way in life, earning his way through Cornell college. He had been in the South since 1885. Demo. 4890 4848 5145 6197 4931 5061 6672 — -.. auditor, treasurer, sheriff, and recorder were above the average; on clerk and attorney, under the average. By coincidence the republican coroner vote vas exactly average. The democratic votes on clerk, sheriff, and county attorney were over average; for auditor, treasurer, recorder, and coroner, under average. Most Votes on Sheriff. Except on coroner, on which the vote was comparatively light, the excess above average In each case was slight, likewise narrow In the votes below average, when a total vote of better than 9,000 is concerned. In this connection it is Interesting to note the total votes for the respective offices. More were cast for sheriff than any other office, while coroner received the smallest vote. The totals are: auditor, 9263; treasurer, 9315; clerk, 9223; sheriff, 949S; recorder, 9166; coroner, S941. It is evident th,at 500 to 800 voters cast a 'ballot for president and ignored the rest of the ticket.
