r, '1 ! PAGE EIGHT MARCH 100 BURNED HOUSE WAS LAST OF PIONEER HOMES I am for Roosevelt 100 per cent. Everybody, regardless of party, creed, color, or cla-KS is for him. He is doing things. He is a born leader. People everywhere are happier. There is a different feeling around the store already. There is a buying wave struck the country. Six months ago people would not spend their last few dollars—they were afraid they would never see another one. Today they know that new currency is being printed by the millions. Money is coming out of hiding because banks that open up are sure safe. Prices are going up. Land values will soon begin to tighten and get firm. It is a new deal. We are entering another cycle of good times. I wish I was younger, for' I can see coming ten to , 20 years of the best merchandising times the . world has ever seen. Plenty of money, makes plenty of business, and plenty business sets the factories going, which in turn solves the unemployment question. People are happier, they are more sociable, more neighborly. It will soon be so we can trust each other again. Let the good work go on and let anyone that tries to hinder this splendid program be denounced as a traitor, a Benedict Arnold. My country 'tis of thee, sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing. Jimmie Neville WESLEYANS 50 -YEARS WED Tragic F i re Takes House Built Before By Mrs A. B. Schenck Union Twp., Mar. 28—The house burned last week Monday morning on the former Fletcher Hofius farm ) the last of the houses constructed when this community was settled. The history of the house and its former occupants has been recalled by relatives and other of the oldef settlers. Mr. and Mrs. Hofius, born in Mercer county, Pa., and Belfast, Ireland, in 1830, and 1835 respectively, were married in Pennsylvania in 1854 and emigrated to Marshall county, Iowa, in the spring of 1859. That fall they came to Kossuth and took up the government claim that was their home many years. House Moved Eight Miles. Mr. Hofius bought a house which had been built on another claim eight miles southwest. With the aid of all the men -who then lived in this part of the country and many yoke of oxen, the building was moved to its location here in DEOPLE AT WESLEY and for many miles around will recognize these . pictures Instantly. They are of Mr. and Mrs. B. F. Felt who at their winter home at Rockledge, Fla., celebrated their golden wedding Friday, March 1-7. The story. appeared in last week's Ad vance.

Mrs. Hofius, or Aunt Mary, as she came to be known, prepared dinner for the men who helped in the moving, though her cooking equipment was meager. She kept watch across the prairie, but the men did not arrive till supper time. A neighbor said of Aunt Mary: "She was a very good cook, and always did her part to furnish good cheer and foster good will in the community." An addition to the original house was built in 1SS3, and some ten years later another addition was built. The north part of the house, which included the kitchen and dining rooms, Itad been on the present location nearly 74 years. This part of the house was built of oak. iPassersby will remember it as the part with the porch on the west. " ' Sons fn Tragic Deaths. There were- two tragic deaths ire .he Hofius family. Frank, youngest boy, was drowned when lie was 12 while he was swimming with a group of neighbor boys In the Black Cat. This was on the farm hen owned by the Tlios. Sarcliets, This is now the son, 'wmiamv ook up land near Deadwood, S 1 . D., and was killed when he was about 24 years old in the de«T- hunting season. A hunter heard a ustle and fired at what he thought svas a deer. Another child, a girl', died at two- years. James died a few years- ago; Charles lives at St. Peters- iurg, Fla.; and George, at Algona;. Their father died on the Rome' farm August 9, 1909, and Mrs; HO-- fius at Hurt in 1919. HofJuses Charter Baptists. The elder Mr. Hofius once served as a township trustee. Both Mr. larents of Mark. lien Bros. home. Another Hofius TELEPHONE LINES OAMAGEDJY SLEET The sleet arid the heavy snows of the last two weeks caused a damage in Iowa to the Northwestern Bell Telephone Co. estimated at $100,000, according to E. C. Handler, Alg-ona manager. 'Local crews had to ..work day and night to get the lines into good condition again. Most of the damage resulted to toll lines in the country. The heavy snow held up cars carrying crews and made an extra day necessary to complete, repairs. The work here was finished last -week Monday and Tuesday, tout if the lines could have been got at sooner it would have been finished Sunday, Much of the damage here -was caused by "jumping" wires. A phone wire loaded with ice swings in the wind. The elasticity of the wire under a heavy load starts a jumping up and down action which eventually causes it to break. Algona was cut off from the north, east, and south for several hours a week ago Saturday, Sun- COURT (Continued on^page 5.) and Mrs. Hofius were charter- members of the Algona Baptist church, organized May 18, 1861, from, organization till death'.

Mr. and Mrs. Dearchs were married in the present Will home, and their wedding- dinner was served in the old house- at the north, then occupied toy the James Hofius family. Fletcher and Jos. Hofius were cousins. • * Here Are Heal Smokers. •Fifty empty tobacco cans are lined up in a window of the Algona bicycle shop. This represents one month's smoking by five men who work there, and it looks as if they smoke constantly, for the average is almost two cans daily for the quintet. Most of the tobacco used is Union Leader, but they change to other brands occasionally. day, and Mond'ay. The area of greatest damage in the state was a 150-mile path from the northeast comer to the southwest corner. In this path there were 10,000 wire breaks, and more than 500 poles were broken off by weight of ice. All Kossuth towns were cut off from x long-distance service for periods varying from an 'hour or so to a day and a half. Service throughout the entire state had toeen restored toy last week Tuesday noon.
