The city council last Thursday evening i-alsecl th e local electric discount rate for payment on time by 15 per cent. The discount was al- •oady ten per cent, and this action ioosted it to 25 per cent, which operates to reduce the low net electric •ate heretofore in force by a full 15 per cent and provides a compelling incentive to pay bills promptly. The discount is allowed on all bills for tho preceding month, if paid by Warns Against Setting fires by by the grand authority in the matter.

John W. Geist, Algona, pleaded guilty to a charge of selling liquor and was sentenced to three months in jail, the minimum under the law Geist told the court he was father of two children and that his income at the Swift plant, where he has part time work, had not been sufficient to care for his family, hence he turned to bootlegging. Drivers' License Suspended. Edward L-ichter, Algona, pleaded guilty to a charge of driving while he was intoxicated and was sentenced to three months In Jail. Judge Heald added a proviso that he is not to drive a car for three months after the sentence expires and suspending LIchter's driving license for that period. Judge Heald last week gave a decision in favor of the defendant, in the case of Iowa State bank vs. Claude Seeley. The plaintiff charged that the defendant and other members of his parental family had divided up an estate farm which the >ank had a claim for money owed he bank, and had done it In such a vay as to make the bank's recovery >y law inequitable. The bank asked :hat quit-claim deeds by which the ivlslon was made be set aside, but udge Heald held with the defend- nt. the 20th of the following month. In addition to the 25 per cent, the city pays a federal tax of three per cent supposed to be paid by the customer. Therefore the "new deal" constitutes an IS per cent reduction. In addition to raising the discount rate, the minimum charge has been cut, but the discount does not apply on minimum charges. Lowest In the State. It is believed that this action makes Algona's electric rates lowest in the state. Rates were not changed. For homes they remain at 7%c for the first 40 kilowatt hours; 6%c for the next 60; 5%c for the next 300; and four cents for the rest. The minimum was reduced to 75c a month. The sign rate, where a separate meter is maintained, Is 3%c flat, with a minimum of 50c 'a, month'. The optional rate for homes is 7c for the first.50 kilowatt hours and three cents for all over that amount, with a minimum of $2.75. This rate can be secured by signing a contract at the city clerk's office. Kates for Apartments. The optional apartment house rate Is 7c an apartment for the first 40 kilowatts and three cents for all over Sam R. Starr, state deputy fire marshal, who investigated .fires here a couple of weeks ago, took occasion at the time to warn that arson and incendiarism are punishable heavy prison sentences. The state fire marshal's office has of late been exceptionally busy with what his office force terms "depression" fires, in which property is burned to collect the insurance, Mr. Starr said. Deputy marshals, who investigate at the scene of fires, leave the office Monday mornings to answer fire reports, are routed by telephone to points about the state, and often are away from home two weeks at a time. 'Suspicious fires are numerous, Mr. Starr said, and the fact that the times are hard makes 90 per cent of fires open to a suspicion of incen- diarism. It Is the duty of the state fire marshal's office to investigate each such fire thoroughly. In many cases culprits are caught. In nearly every case they inadvertently leave some evidence, often slight, which leads to arrest and a state prison sentence. In such financial times as these the marshal, the insurance companies, and local authorities alike are auspicious of every fire. It is a never violated rule that in hard times fires 'grow in number. People who in ordinary times are upright and honest go beserlc when pressed by financial conditions and think of insurance as a solution of their problems. As a rule property deliberately burned is found to be insured for most of its value. Often it could be replaced for less than the insurance. When anyone is accused of having set a fire, there are two charges ho may have to answer, arson and conspiracy to defraud, if conspiracy is proved, the penalty is five years in the penitentiary. One who sets the fire, if convicted, is liable under the following section in the code: "Any person who willfully and maliciously sets fire to, or burns, or causes to be burned, or who aids, counsels, or procures the burning of any dwelling house, kitchen, shop, mm, stable, or other outhouse that s parcel thereof, or belonging to or idjoining thereto, the property of limself or of another, shall be guilty of arson, and upon conviction there- >f shall be sentenced to the peniten- iary for not more than 20-years." BAR'S ACTION NEARLY STOPS FORECLOSURES Deficiency Judgments Not Granted by Judge. Recent action by the local bar association recommending that no deficiency judgments be allowed In foreclosures and no receiverships granted has resulted In practically stopping the practice In the local district court. This results from cooperation by outside attorneys and Judge Geo. A. Heald.

The first jury case, which went to rial Tuesday morning, was a 'suit >rought by Charles Beaman, of the orwith-Lu Verne nelghborhood; gainst F. A.' Niver, former Lu r erne banker. Jurors drawn were A, C. Carlisle, Whittemore; Carl A. Husklns, Buffalo Center; H. (L. Hoenk, O. W. Jones, and Inez Potter. Algona; Mrs. J. P. Nyman, 'Bancroft; 0. J. Ranney, Fenton; Frank Rotterman, Elmore; Lawrence Thilges, Bode; William Speicher, Swea City; J. P. Trunk'hill, Burt; and R. J. Welp, Bancroft. . The .case dealt with real estate commissions. Witnesses were still being examined yesterday afternoon. The next case for trial is an auto damage suit brought by Dora B. •Ranger aganist S. H. McNutt in which the former claims $600 as the result of alleged Injuries. The third jury case set for trial Is a slander suit for $5,000 brought by Jennie Vanderlinden against Theodore Goeders. The fourth and last case 'is a note case brought by J. M. Gannon against Charles Beaman. The order of these cases may be changed, or tihe suits may be settled before they get to the jury. 40. The minimum is $2 an apartment monthly, and the rate applies to apartment houses operated on one meter. 'In the past there was been some confusion about apartment rates. The city holds that a family occupying quarters In a house with a separate kitchen, whether there is an electric stove or not, is an apartment. The basic guide is whether cooking is done. Roomers who eat out are not affected. The commercial heating and .refrigeration rate is 5c for the first 100 kilowatt hours and three cents for all over 100 kilowatt hours, with a minimum of $2 a month. Power and Farm Rates. Power rates are 5c a month for the first 20 kilowatt hours for each horsepower; for the next 40, 3y,c; 3c for the following 40; and 2%c for all over 100. The minimum rates are 75c for each horsepower rating for the first 25; 50c each for the next 25; and 25c each on all over 50 h. p. rating. Thus a 10-h, p. plant has a minimum of $7.50 a month. Farm line rates are 4c for the first 1000 kilowatt hours as metered at the city limits and 3c for all over 1000.

This Is the old Lampright hill just south of the Milwaukee track. (Because of Ice the truck lost traction near the top of the hill and slid down and off tihe grade Into a deep ditch on the east side. The truck was carrying 220 filled butter tubs weighing 64 pounds apiece, or a total of 14,000 pounds. It had a trailer behind, and when the slide began the swaying of the trailer made it impossible to steer backward. Two county caterpillars were caller, and after truck and trailer had been unloaded the tractors pulled both out of the ditch, one at a time. An auxiliary gas tank below the truck body was scraped off, but the truck was otherwise undamaged, and after being reloaded it again proceeded on its -way east, first picking up another 67 tubs of butter here. The accident happened at 10 o'clock in the morning, and the Mitchell Dies Photographer A. L. Peterson recently received a letter from the Franklin Advertising studios, Detroit, asking for photographs of parades of the Rlngllng Eros, circus taken In 1895. At that time a Mr. Hudson was working- for Mr. Peterson, and he took a number of excellent pictures of the circus parade. They were made with the old plate glass holding the negatives. Since then celluloid negatives have replaced glass, and when Mr. Peterson moved his studio to its present quarters in 1913 from above the present Hodges garage the glass negatives were sold and the negatives destroyed. Why the negatives were wanted is not known, but it is taken for granted that they were to be used for advertising or historical purposes. Mr. Peterson, who came to Algona In 1892 and bought the Hudson & Shadle studios, has been in business here more than 40 years. D. J. Mitchell, Algona contractor and carpenter for more than 40 years, died at his home yesterday shortly after noon. He suffered a stroke December 1 which was the cause of • death. Funeral services will be held tomorrow afternoon. There will be .private services at the home, followed by public services at the Methodist church. truck p. m. was on its way again by 5 H, 1ORATORICAL PUPILS HOLD CONTEST THIS WEEK The high school oratorical class Will have tryouts sometime this Week. (Four boys and one girl are contesting: Donald Hutchins, Richard Norton, Eleanor Keen, John Chrtetensen, and Walter Beardsley. One wll} be chosen to represent Al- gonai in a, contest against Lakota and Lodyard the week of February 27. Where the contest will be held has not been decided. It- a kilowatt hour. The minimum customer charge is $1,75 a month. The new ordinance becomes effective by publication, and thus applies to January bills mailed In February. This discount means a reduction of city income in approximately the sum of $11,000 a year. The council sonsidered rebating a month, as has been done at other points, but the plan to increase the discount, and make the reduction continuous, was, it was felt, fairer and more satisfactory. The 15 per cent additional discount will mean almost two months in a year. SCOUTMASTERS' SCHOOL IS HELD HERE BY MUHLEMAN The Rev. W. G. Muhleman, boy scout commissioner representing national headquarters, held a scoutmasters' school of instruction at the Legion 'hail Monday, with an at- VARIED WEATHER GIVEN PUZZLED WEATHER MAN Varied weather has been dealt out to north Iowa by the weather man in the last week. Two inches of snow fell Sunday morning, but with BRUT MAN AWARDED STAR ROUTE CONTRACT J. W. Jackson, Britt, has been awarded .the contract for carrying .he mail on the new star route be- ween Britt and Emmetsburg via Algona at $1200 a year. It became effective yesterday. Since the route vas established two or three months igo the mail had been hauled by Ben Hynds, Algona radio repair man at the Bjustrom shop. The route was established when two noon Milwaukee trains were discontinued last ceedings have been held up entirely, and in cases where foreclosures have been pressed, receivership pleas have been dismissed, and the land It .is understood, will be bid at sale In full of the face of the motgages. This will exempt the mortgagees from deficiency judgments on which levies on personal property can be made, and it will also give them their year's redemption right, during which they can remain on the farm without payment of Interest, rent, or taxes, The local bar feels that its action has been especially salutory, because the .program js being carried out voluntarily and without the show of force made in some counties by groups of farmers. It is pointed out that in sections where farm groups have endeavored to enforce demands by mob action there have been created a situation which may have disastrous effects on land and chattel credit for years to come. The wise action taken here has, it Is believed, tended to eliminate that danger so far as JCossuth Is concerned. Decrees taken at this term of e* -Se-ipman succeeded Tn" court are not to be continued to the tec ting himself by use of his logical conclusion — execution and which laj d Smith unconscious sale. In all but two cases in which decrees had been entered up to yesterday no execution had been asked. This lets judgment be entered, but the owner of the land does not for the present face sheriff's sale and eviction.

A dense fog covered the country nearly all day Tuesday, following the rain. Yesterday the. temperature fell below the average of the last few weeks, and predictions are now for colder weather. The record for the week follows: both ways, and the service is daily except Sunday. This means a. total of approximately 32,000 miles travel annually, for which the carrier receives as compensation $1200, or only 3.8c a mile. The carrier leaves Emmetsburg every morning at 7:35, or when the train arrives, but not later than 9 o'clock. He stops at. Cylinder, Whittemore, Algona, Sexton, Wesley, and Britt to leave and pick up mall. He starts the return trip from Britt at 2:10 p. m., but can delay 35 minutes if and M. & St. L. mail train Is late.

Mr. Rudnick took the percentage of moisture in butter as an exampla )t what has been accomplished Buter varies in amount of moisture lost between creamery and distribution. Maintenance of the moisture is necessary to keep a pound of butter weighing the full pound at which it was packaged. It takes more butterfat for a. low-moisture pound ot butter, and creameries lose the difference. The state brand creameries in- the moisture-holding ot t year an average of. i-tenths of one per cent. Thi* sounds small, but on the year's buei- • nees it made a difference of no les* than 60,000 pounds. Better Cream Urged. Iowa ships out 85 per cent of butter made in the state.
