Algona was shocked Saturday evening to learn of the death that day by drowning of Charles Alfred, 9-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. C. R. McVeigh, who farm a short distance south of the bridge below the fairgrounds on No. 169. The boy had been swimming with a group of other bathers, but he remained behind after all the rest had left! An hour later his mother wanted him to go after the cows, and she asked whether neighbors had seen him. Nobody knew where he was. Body Found in Jliver. Alarm soon grew, and the neighborhood began a search. Men immediately went to the river and looked for him in the water. Tracks were found on the south bank, and it was found that he had crossed the river. The tracks then led to a deep hole in the river. It Is ' believed that he entered the water and was drowned there. He could not swim. At about 8 o'clock in' the evening the body was found a block farther down the river, directly under the new bridge. It was discovered by John Eller and Sid Rosensteil, and the sheriff and coronet were called. The boy was dead and no inquest was held. Funeral at the Nazarene Church. Funeral services were held Monday afternoon at the Nazarene church, the Rev. A. W. Irwin in charge, and burial was made in Riverview cemetery. The boy was 'born January 24, 1924.

Temperatures were above 90 for the first time last Thursday and again Saturday. Monday saw the 90 degree mark again passed. There was practically no wind all day Tuesday. Clouds late in the evening threatened a storm, but nothing developed other than a welcome breeze. iRaln totaling .53 inch fell Friday and Saturday, which helped crops and gardens greatly.

The money will not be sent here, but bills allowed toy the board will be sent to Des Moines for approval, and if approved warrants will be mailed from Des Moines.

D. Schaap. Hearing on the same charge against Ray Lloyd, also Fairmont, who' was with Burgess, was in progress yesterday afternoon, and it was expected thatjie also^w.ould be ibound over. The Burgess bond was set at $500, which he was unable to furnish. The men were arrested at (Fairmont by Sheriff Dahlhauser, and bot'h signed papers waiving extradition from Minnesota to Iowa. They had "been traced Sunday by 1932 number plates on their car. The sheriff spent all day Sunday on their trail, visiting Rake and Blue Earth before lie finally landed them at Fairmont. W. 0. Nelson, stockbuyer at Swea City, bought the steer from the two men, and Burgess received a check for the amount of the sale In the name of C. Smith. The check was written on the Iowa State bank here, but payment was stopped before it reached the bank. R. F. C. funds. " ' 4 Dickinson Rumor Unverified. A report was circulated here Saturday that Senator L. J. Dickinson had suffered a broken leg and arm in an accident at Washington, D. C., but investigation by local relatives failed to substantiate the rumor. Mrs. H. J. Putsch Dead at Seattle Abner Long AVBS. notified one day last week of the death last Thursday of Mrs. H. J. Putsch, Seattle, Wash. Mrs. Putsch was a daughter of Henry Langdon, who established what Is now the Long grocery 56 years ago. Mr. Langdon died about 1901, and Mr. Long went to work for Mrs. Putsch and her sister, Miss Langdon at that time. Later he bought the store in partnership with Mrs. Putsch and Miss Langdon. Then his brother, the late C. H. Long, and 'Frank Henderson, now of Pomona, Calif., became interested and the Putsch- Langdon interest was extinguished. The old Langdon home is now the R, P. Norton home. Mrs. Putsch had three daughters and two sisters, Ella Langdon and Mrs. Daniel Townsend, both of whom survive. Fenton Bank Pars. Fenton, June 6 — The Fenton State bank is paying a second dividend of 10 per cent to depositors. The first one was 20 per cent. 15 MORE ARE ENROLLED IN Gi Gi Ci ARMY Unexpected Call for Recruits is Filled Here Tuesday. A call for 15 additional recruits for the Civilian Conservation Corps took local officials 'by surprise Tuesday noon. The.men were called, and were taken to Fort Dodge yesterday morning. County Chairman 'M. P. Weaver and Supervisor W. E. McDonald had'believed that the 43 men heretofore sent in four drafts would be Kossuth's limit. ' " More Edibles Wanted. The call for 15 now leaves only five eligihles on the waiting- list, and Mr. Weaver will accept a limited number of additional enrollments in anticipation of a possible future call. In addition to the 15 men one replacement was sent for Harry Holm, Burt, who has come home. The men who left yesterday are: Dow Laidley, Cleatus Huff, Albert Speicher, and Melvin Oliver, Algona; Myron Sanderson, Raymond Hentges, George H. Manus, and W. E.

Ford V-8Out on 10,000 Mile Test Run Makes Algona Calls , Car owners here are interested ip a/lp,000-mile test run ol the Golden V-8 Ford, which stopped for its first daytime visit at the Kent garage Tuesday • afternoon. It is due again this afternoon at 2 o'clock, and will stop here every Other day, its next following visit being dated Saturday, then next Monday, Wednesday, and Fri- 4*y. The XJolden V-8 left Pes Moines Monday, and Algona is included in Its northern Iowa run along with Ames, Nevada, Iowa Falls, Hampton, Waverly, Charles City, Garner, Britt, Humboldt, Goldfield, Clarion, Webster City, Fort Dodge, Bopne, and Madrid. A southern route covers the south half of the state; The test Js managed by station SO/, Des Motaes. and four drivers hired by the station are in charge sealed, and the gas cap is opened only by Phillips 66 attendants, who also furnish oil, which is changed only every 1,000 miles. The car had already been driven 12,000 miles, and the present scorching weather, particularly at the beginning of the week, is giving it a blistering test. Records of gas and oil consumption and tire wear will be sworn to daily and can be seen at the Kent garage. The car comes to Algona under the auspices of the Kent Motor Co., local Ford dealers, and William Pestotnik and Wm. Titus, Phillips 66 station operators. The test is one of the most spectacular ever undertaken in the state and is made to prove the dependability of both the new Ford and Phillips products. Up to Tuesday evening the car had traveled 1818 miles, averaging 18.3 miles £ gallon at 60 miles an The' boys heretofore sent have been glad to go. Letters home from boys now at work who went in the first draft indicate that the work is not hard and that food and other conditions' are satisfactory. There, are no Irksome restrictions, and the men are practically on honor to keep a good name for the corps. This is developing discipline oh the part of the youths themselves. Two men who returned to the Des drunk were tossed in a blanket by messmates till they were sobered. iRiotlng, drunkenness, and other wild life are not tolerated by, the controlling officials. Youths who offend are sent home promptly. 91450 Sent Home''Monthly. There are now 58'Kossuth boys in camps, and they are sending home to dependents $1450- every month. This is a,real help, often meaning the difference between self-support and county aid. .In addition the removal of competing common labor from the county leaves that much more work open lor men who because of age are not qualified to join the corps. • Woman is Arrested for Drunk Driving Mrs Clara Neitzel has been released on $100 'bond at (Mason City on a charge of driving while intoxicated, according to yesterday's Des Moines <Register, Proceedings in district court here were recently begun to take custody of her six children and place them in a children's home. The petition charged that the children are neglected. The car driven by Mrs. Neitzel at Mason City crashed into a picket fence. Wm. L. Taylor and T. S. Thompson, both of Emmetsburg, were also held on intoxication charges. Bad Check Writer Settles the Case —__-~_- ' f C. R. (Harris, manager of the bicycle shop, was arrested! by Sheriff Dahlhauser Friday on a warrant held by the Cerro Gordo sheriff'on a bad check, which, with costs, amounted to $19.04. Mr. Harris paid $10 cash and gave two bicycles as security for the rest. Monday he sold one of the bicycles, paid the balance, and was released. Theo El>bert, brother-in-law of the sheriff, then claimed the other bicycle for his services as police at the Sexton dance hall, which Mr. Har-, rls operates. MRS, SEILER, NURSE, PASSES IN THE NIGHT Friends were startled Sunday morning to learn that Mrs. F. H. Seller had died suddenly in the night. Though not In the test of i health, she had not been sick, and she was about the day before as usual. Last week Monday she returned with her husband from Minneapolis, where they attended the funeral of a brother of Mr. Seller. There was no premonition of deabh. About 2 a. m. Mr. Seller was awaked by what he thought was a nightmare which Mrs. Seller IMPROVEMENTS ORDER OF DAY ON STATE ST, Interiors of Stores Remodeled and Redecorated. Remodeling operations in many Algona stores have of late changed their appearance much for the better and are indicative of the return of better times. The "new deal" is now believed to be working sufficiently, so the owners of the stores have gone ahead with long-deferred alterations. The most extensive change was made at the K. D. James ' drug' store, where a new. fountain, with sandwiches and salad equipment, was installed, and new linoleum laid. The new fountain, a White Knight, has a, Spanish-tile base, with black counter. It is 21 feet lone and is set at the west center of the store. Extra Equipment Provided. There are the usual compart- j ments for syrups and ice creams. . was having.

Father Davern conducted funeral services at St. Cecelia's Catholic church Tuesday morning. Pall bearers were K. D. James, J. W. Kelly, M. J. Streit, M. P. Weaver, D. D. Paxson, and R. P. Norton. The body was taken to Goodhue, Minn., the same day for 'burial yesterday. Mrs. Seller's maiden name was Eleanor Farrell, and she was born in 1871 at Waupon, Wis. At death She'was 62., Her family moved from Wisconsin to Minnesota, and she studied nursing at the Northwestern hospital, Minneapolis. On June 19, 1899, she was married', and in 1900 the Seilers came to Algona. Mrs. Seller had followed her profession here ever since, and she was one of the county's most widely known nurses. There were no children. Surviving besides Mr. Seller are three brothers: W. H. Farrell, Minneapolis; Thomas and Charles Farrell, Goodhue; also one sister, Mrs. Otto Germer, Goodhue. Mrs. Seller was a devout member of St. Cecelia's Catholic church and was active in both church and social circles. Wins Cornell Scholarship. (Eleanor Keen received notice last week Wednesday that she had won second place and a $100 scholarship In an essay contest conducted by Cornell college. The essay was on Why Attend a Liberal Arts Col- 100 Come Out for Wet Mass Meeting All but six precincts were represented by judges or clerks at a meeting called' by the local organization for repeal of the 18th amendment at the courtroom Friday evening. The meeting* was in charge of Paul J. Hamill, jeweler at the Lusby drug store who is now county chairman. An address was given by Frank Campbell, of Fort Dodge, eighth district repeal chairman. The strategy of the wets is to get out the vote without effort at conversion. The question of prohibition, it was explained, is so controversial that argument on either side is wasted. More than 100 persons attended the meeting. Council to Grant Class B Permits The city council meets tonight to grant class B permits to the Smoke Shop and the Hub Recreation parlor. (Both have held class C permits, but both have now installed booths and equipment for serving keg beer. Class G permits allow sale for off-premises consumption only. An attorney general's ruling requires the full |100 fee, for the new' licenses, and the 125 fees paid for class C permits have thus been lost. Hardware Salesman Wins Chicago Trip O, W, Erickson, hardware salesman for a Minneapolis house, has won a free trip to the World's fair, all expenses paid, in a sales contest conducted by his house. Mr. and Mrs. Erickson left Monday for Chicago, where they were to spend three days, and were then .to go to Milwaukee, later to Rhinelander, Wis., to visit Mrs. Erickson's moth- "cold" table for serving salads and similar dishes. At present this equipment is not being used. The new linoleum is of an attractive modernistic, .style, with mottled colors that blend with the new fountain equipment. This is believed to be the best fountain equipment in northern Iowa At Chriscnilles & Herbst's a new green carpet has been laid on the entire second floor and other alterations have been made. The old carpet was taken up, and a new base laid for the new one. Graham Store Mode Over. The Graham store recently completed extensive remodeling of the whole interior, and a marvelous change for the better was made in interior appearance. The basement stairs were moved to the back end of the store, and merchandise formerly sold in the basement is now under the balcony, which was shortened. The shelving and tables were rearranged for more serviceable use. New paint adds to the attractiveness of the interior. In the Algona hotel block there have been several changes. The Sorensen Walgreen drug store recently completed installation of a new fountain with back bar. The balcony was blocked off, and the .space beneath now serves as a prescription, room. New counters and shelving completed 'the remodeling plans. Hotel Has Tap Room. The Algona hotel has remodeled the former waiting parlor off the dining room into a tap room for serving new 3.2 beer. The double- door entrance into the,dining room has been blocked in, except a small service opening through which patrons of the dining room receive beer. A small bar, with tables, has been installed in the new tap room. The Fisher cafe has installed a new line of booths along its center aisle in anticipation of increased business as the result of the new beer.'

WHAT'S VALUE OF LANO?~3 PRIZES The new Federal Farm (Relief Act "provides means whereby farm mortgagors who can comply with Its provision may refinance themselves through the Federal Land banks. Even mortgagors whose mortgages have . .heen foreclosed may obtain relief. Another source of loans Is the federal farm loan commissioner. The commissioner can,* under required conditions, lend on a higher acreage appraisal .than the land banks. . The principal hurdle in b9th cases Is the land appraisal value. The limit for both kinds of loans is determined by what the land is worth. Some farms are so heavily encumbered i that they are not eligible. To obtain .practical information on what Kossuth lands are worth, H. D. Hutchins, secretary-treasurer of -the local Omaha Federal Land bank affiliate, offers three prizes for the best answers to'the question, What Is good Kossuth county land worth today? And what are the considerations on which the opinion is based? The prizes will be $5, %%, and $2. Answers must be in by July 1, and a committee will judge them.

He investigated, but found no one, and returned to town for a midnight lunch, After lunch Mr.' Casey entered his car and was about to go home, when he saw a man running down street. The deputy stopped him, and asked what was up. The transient replied that he was belrife chased by snakes, which he was try- in? to pick off his legs, also off of the deputy's legs. He seemed to his right mind otherwise. Mr. Loss took the fellow to the county jail, and Dr. John Keneflok was called. The deputy then went back to the depot, got the fellow's partner out of a • refrigerator car, partner gave the others name as Lewis Gaulke, Stpoghton, WiVHe said Gaulke was oncejcpnfined in a state hospital for inebriacy, and that he had now been on ah almost continuous drunk for three months. Sunday he ran out of both money and liquor, and -,the resulting sobriety brought on ,an attack of delirium tremens. - , • The deputy let both men go after Doctor Kenefick had given Gaulke medicine, but on the sidewalk the transient was afraid to, cross a crack, and so asked to be returned to the Jail.'
