Extensive remodeling operations were started last week Monday at the Smoke Shop preparatory to ap- tnent and adoption of the 21st amendment. Of course the delegates will, however, vote the way the people have decided, The process Is like the vote every fourth year on president and vice president. We do not In fact, vote directly for president and vice president but for congressional district electors who versatile athletes ever developed by the Burt schools, remains available, as do Slgsbee and Riddle also, as a nucleus for next year's nine. - -,.~~ v,i*ii.v,i oo-icameji, jwith their parents, attended the convention, and the committee in (charge expects that numiber to be lexceeded this year.

' Cattle Go Astray and Get Owner at St. Joe Into Jam St. Joe, June 6—(Le Roy McConnell was arrested Monday at his farm northeast of St. Joe by Sheriff Sexe, Humboldt, on a charge of breaking and entering. A month ago he was arrested for letting his cattle trespass on Andrew Enpeld'ing's farm, and was sentenced to 30 days in the county Jail, but sentence was suspended when he agreed to pay damage and costs amounting to $48. Erpelding kept the cattle at that time, but released the malk 'cows, holding nine head of young 'cattle till the damages were paid At night McConnell entered the Erpelding .premises and took away the cattle, It was on this charge that he was rearrested, since he •had failed to pay the damages and costs. A $ 2,000 bond is now required before he will be released. His tnial will come up at the October term of court. -*• Sales Boosting Farm Land Price D. L. McDonald, -local real estate broker, reports the sale of the Louis Larsen quarter in Wesley township to W. A. Murray, Bancroft. This was a .cash sale. Mr. McDonald has had four tentative sales rejected iby companies owning land in the last ten days He reports more interest now In land than at any time in the last several plication for a Class B permit for the sale of keg ib,eer by the glass in restaurant style. The front end of the building, except the news stand, has been made into a short order restaurant, and the cigar factory, which has been moved to the rear of the building, has ibeen completely separated from the Smoke Shop and restaurant quarters. The entire interior has (been remodeled and redecorated. W. A. Barry, manager of the Hub pool and billiard parlors, has had one billiard table and- a pool table stored upstairs to make room for serving beer. Booths are to be built against the west wall, and a 25-ft. bar will be built back of the soda fountain. Four Offices Itefloored. Four offices in rooms above the Iowa State bank are being im- m«nt and favor leaving the 18th amendment alone. There Id only one place to vote, and that is in the circle at the top of each ticket, There are 'no squares opposite names; hot even counties. Scratching out or altering any printed name, or doing anything as regards the first two col- flmns except making a cross in one circle or the other, will spoil the ballot. Third Column Caution. There is a third blank column in which any voter may, if he so desires, write' in the names of his own Candidates, but use of this column will be wholly futile, and the best advice is to pay no attention to it. Voters who do use It must reme.m- 3er that after writing In the names ;hey must put a cross In the circle at the top, or the ballot will not count, also that if they vote their own ticket they cannot put a cross n the circle at the head of either do the voting the way we decide. No Vote by Counties. It is to be understood, as has been pointed out before, that every voter will be voting on the entire list of delegates on his ticket In the state, and that it will he the vote in the state as a whole thatiof the other tickets, will count, not the vote by separate counties. In other words, Kossuth county may vote either wet or dry, but in case the state as a whole votes the other way it will be the Kossuth candidate on the victorious state ticket who will be elected elegate from this county to the state convention. Wets In, First Column. That Is, to he specific, Kossuth may give a majority dry vote for Senator Patterson, but if so, and if at the same time the whole state casts a majority wet vote, it will be Geo. D. Moulton, the Kossuth Algonian Winner in Contest for Music Scholarship years. This, he believes, has been brought about primarily by the "new deal" at Washington. Mr. McDonald last week demonstrated his faith in what he preaches by buying 100 acres south of Sexton at $75 an acre. MONDAY, TUESDAY, WEDNESDAY—Big' demonstration of Du Pont paints. Free goods with each quart of Duco paint sold.-^Kobl- haas & Spilles Hardware. 20u39 proved with new floors and redecorating. The rooms of attorneys H. B. White P. A. .Danson, and G. W. Stillman are being refloored, also the floor In the insurance office of H. N. Kruse. Mr. Kruse and Mr. White took turns In vacating their rooms for ;he improvements, and temporarily had their offices in another room near toy. Mr. Stillman took office *oom with his partner, E. J. Van fess, and P. A. Danson took advantage of the chance to fish at -he Okobojis, after which he had temporary quarters in a room across the hall. The bank 'owns the part of the building directly above its quarters, and Peterson and Haggard own the Moe & Sjogren store building. The work is being done by Cowan & Son and Bert Deal. wet candidate for delegate, who will be elected to represent us in the convention, despite the fact that he did not'secure a majority in the county vote. It is important that every voter understand that the candidates for delegates in the first, column on the ballot are wets, while the candidates in the second column are drys; that is, the candiates in the first column are for ratification of the Slst amendment, which repeals the 18th amendment, while the candiates in the second column oppose adoption of the 21st amend- 'Dorothy Carver, Thornton, and E. A. Genrich, Algona, have won free tuition at an Okoboji Methodist camp six weeks school of music this summer. They won In a contest at the Methodist church Sunday afternoon in which nearly 50 contestants from the Algona Methodist district toak part. •Miss Carver won *n an instrumental group with a violin, and 'Mr. Genrich in a vocal group.

Royal Union, at Des Moitiea, Now in Receivership Sunday's 'Des Moines Register reported that,a receiver, had been appointed for the Royal Union Life Insurance Co. How many policyholders there are in Kossuth is not known here, .but there is probably a considerable number, some of them fully paid. The company wftS represented here before the , war by the late S.'D. Drake, and C, 6. Simpson also wrote policies, Prospects that policies -will be* paid seem doubtful in view of the al- egations on which receivership was granted. Though some salvage s probable. Among other possi- )llities is that the company will be reorganized or the liabilities reinsured in another company. In either of which events policyholders will suffer no loss. L. A. Andrew, retiring, state superintendent of banking, has been named receiver. V. F. W. Post to Be Installed at M. C. 'Local and other county posts of the V. P.
