Mouth Burns Suffered by Algonian; Mystery as Lye Is Discovered in Coffee Joseph Frinek, 65, Atwater, Minn., was killed at 7 a. m. last Thursday, when his truck was hit by a Rock Island train on No. 169, west of iLivermore. The truck burst Into flames following the crash, -and Frinek's body was burned beyond recognition. lit is not known whether Frinek was killed in the crash or died in the flames, but it is thought that if he was not killed outright he was knocked unconscious. The.train was stopped, and members of the crew who dragged the body out of the wreck suffered burns on the bands and clothes. Household Goods Burn. Frinek was coming north from Fort Dodge, en route home, and his truck was loaded with house hold goods, which he was taking there from iFort Dodge, his formei home. He was alone. The truck ran into the moto train when the train was about a third of the way across the roa crossing. The truck was whirled around in a half circle, and i skidded into the ditch at the south west 'Side of the crossing, burstin into flames as it lit. The' gasolne and the househol and to th ge furniture burned rapidly, train crew, had difficulty close enough to the truck cab t save the body. County officials at Humbold were called, and the body was tak en to the Ellsworth funeral horn there. Escaped Once Before. ..; Less -than a year ago Frinek.es it-aped"death, only 100 yards fror the same crossing, .when- anothe truck which he was driving got ou of control, and crashed into th ditch. He suffered minor injurie Mrs. S. J. Backus suffered a urned mouth Monday evening, fhen she sipped coffee made from ater which contained a heavy olution of lye. The water was in a teakettle, nd how the lye came to be there a mystery. The Backus family vas all away Monday afternoon, ilr. and Mrs. Backus were visiting t or near Mason Oity, and the wo daughters were at work up own. Water from the teakettle had jeen used at noon for making tea, ind nothing unusual was noticed hen. Monday evening, when Mr. nd Mrs. Backus returned at 8 j'clock, they fixed up a lunch, in- luding coffee. Mouth Badly Burned. ' The coffee was the "instant" ;ind, made by pouring boiling water over finely pulverized- coffee. The water was boiled in the tea- cettle, and cups for Mr. and Mrs. Backus were poured. -Mrs. Backus took a sip first, and the strength of the solution nearly strangled ler and burned her mouth severely. •Beth Backus ran to her car and rushed up town for a doctor," returning with iDr. P. V. Janse, who treated Mrs. Backus's burns. Inspection of the dry coffee, the cream, and sugar was made without disclosing the lye, but Doctor Janse also suffered a burned mouth when he sipped water from the teakettle, the solution being so strong that he was unable to spit it out before it had burned his lips, tongue, and the lining of the mouth. Heavy Dose of lye. Analysis showed the water was saturated with a solution of sodium lye. A full swallow would have so burned the stomach and other organs that death would probably have resulted. The amount ot lye in the kettle was too great for complete absorption by the water, and settlings in bottles of samples were almost pure lye. iNo one was seen about the house in the afternoon. A group of girls was playing bridge for a short time 29 Babies in Fair Contest Mrs. George St. John, superintendent of the Baby Health booth at the county fair, announces that 29 babies have been entered already. The booth can care for only 44. There are two classes, 1 and 2, and 2 and 3. Applicants should send name and age to Mrs. St. John, Algona. The county Legion Auxiliary has taken over conduct of the booth, which was voluntarily relinquished by the Algona Woman's club.

It is thus nearly impossible to see an approaching train except directly from the crossing. .Frinek lived in Fort Dodge up to two months ago, when he started farming near Atwater. He was moving his furniture a load, at a itlme, and this was the last load. Mr. Frinek still owned a farm five miles south of town on Highway 169, the place now occupied by the Lawrence Hansens. He formerly worked it, but moved some years ago to Fort Dodge. Gambling Machine Operator is Fined George Coon was brought to the county Jail by Constable W. H.

Part of the solution was carried into her throat by saliva, but nothing serious has developed.

Chrischilles spoke on intelligent store operation at the 15th semi-annual convention of the National Merchants association in a Northwest Business Recovery conference at St. Paul last week^ Monday night, and his address achieved extended first page mention in the St Paul Dispatch. The program booklet for the meeting featured his picture. He scored easygoing merchants who leave clerks to run their stores and play too mucn golf. Merchants, he said, who survive the depression will reap a harvest, and he advised his hearers to give traveling salesmen better treatment. Since coming home Mr. Chrischilles has received letters further elucidation of his however, is revamping of the budget system, whereby every branch of the state government-must estimate its expenditures in advance and must then keep within that Income.

The school is already large in point of attendance, and there are not enough seats for additional pupils. The teacher, Dorothy Baylor, could not properly teach tlhe 30 pupils who came last year. This year there is a prospective total of 22 from the county farm alone, in addition to 15 district children. • The-group'-asked -that a separate school be maintained at the county farm, or that other arrangements be made for teaching the county farm children. The county paid some tuition for the county farm pupils last year, but the additional work for the teacher made it Impossible for h'er to give the attention to the individual pupils that is necessary. Following '' the complaint the board considered bringing part of BANDIT GANG IS BROKEN UP BY SENTENCES Two Kossuth Youths Confess to Theft of Potatoes. • Deputy Sheriff Casey Loss was at Fairmont last Thursday and Friday, helping Sheriff William Rochler, Martin county, Minn., round up three- members of a gang which has operated on both sides of the' state -line for some time.

In addition to chairman and secretary each town is to name a. com-' plaints committee ot three to five members. This committee will hear local complaints and endeavor t» settle tlieBi by arbitration or Qtherr wise^ No such committee -will hay* power to take any punitive action. If a local problem cannot be settle* The Cresco farmers, objected also on the ground that,the poor farm children were often unsupervised at home and had acquired habits of disobedience which' tended to spread to other children. $7500 DAMAGES ASKED OF WHITTEMORE DRIVER 2 Local Teams in Swimming Meet at Estherville Pool An Estherville-Algona swimming meet for boys is scheduled -for tonight at 7:30 at the Estherville pool.
