It is reported that arson was suspected. The arson theory is lent some credence by the fact that the elevator was scheduled to be sold at sheriff's sale yesterday at Britt inder foreclosure of a mortgage leld by the State bank of Britt. Farmers at Corwith who were stockholders, it is reported, have seen in disagreement on; whether to redeem the elevator or let it go at sale. Some observers believe that burglars, who have made numerous raids on elevators in northern Iowa in recent weeks, were responsible for the fire, which in that event occurred after cracking the safe. Blaze Discovered at 4 A. M. The blaze was discovered shortly before 4 a. m. Tuesday by Mrs Elizabeth Jergenson, who awoke to find the sky alight. The blaze hat by that time spread to the top o: the elevator; Mrs. Jorgenson called the fin department, and the town was sum' moned to prevent spread of the fire. T.here t was a strong wine which fanned the fire into a roar ing furnace which sent sparks anc burning brads from the upper par of the structure into the residenci district. The Britt fire department .wai called to help fight fires whicl broke out on roofs of homes. The most seriously damaged house were those of Mrs. Jergenson, >R. J Galloway, and B. A. Ross. Tlte Ro's and Sam Lightner barns were alsc damaged. The wind finally died somewhat and changed driection enough to send the sparks another, way. 4300 Bu. Grain Destroyed.

Additional votes will be obtained with coupons given at all Algona stores. Twenty-five votes will be given for 25 cents spent between now and Saturday night, December 2, when the contest will close. Entries must be girls between 16 and 21 from any part of the county. The girl receiving the most number of votes will be named Miss Mary Christmas, and the next four will be maids of honor and will ride with her in the Christmas parade. The standing of candidates will be published each week in the Algona newspapers, and any girl can enter between now and December 2. Of course girls entering early will have the start on later entries—unless later entrants spend enough more to catch up with and pass earlier entrants. The contest is sponsored by the Algona Community club as a part of a big welcoming parade for Santa Claus when he visits Algona that day. An additional story elsewhere in today's paper gives details of Santa's projected arrival. HOMER NORTON RECALLS OLD ALGONA TIMES Pays Tribute to His Mother as Church Supporter. By Homer 11. Morton.

The back part is carpeted, and will be used for suit and overcoat customers, while the front part will be/devoted to furnishings. The store will be operated by Mr. Steele and his son William Jr. .-.'..• Armistice Halted Algonian at Front At the Kiwanis club meeting last Thursday members who had served in the world war were asked to tell where they were two days before the Armistice. The speakers included Dr. R. M. Wallace, A. E. Kresensky, H. M. Smith, and M. G. Norton. The latter was in 'France, marching to the front, his regiment to be the spearhead of a mass attack in case the armistice negotiations fell through.- The battle was scheduled to start a day or so after November 11.

Elsbecker farm, four miles southeast of Bancroft, burned to the ground Sunday at noon, and nothing 'was saved. The Bancroft fire department was called, and no damage was done to other buildings. The house stood • on the southeast corner of the farm yard, and there was a strong northeast wind which carried sparks away from other buildings. 'Mr. and Mrs. Elsbecker and their four sons were at church, and no one was at home, so the origin of the fire is not known. 'Neighbors turned in the alarm. The loss is the church at a very early date and through all her years her devotion to it never flagged. .Of all the people I have known she had the most unswerving loyalty to all her high principles. My memory of her from my earliest recollections centers about her three great enthusiasms—her religion, her patriotism and her belief in education. And what she believed in she worked for untiringly. The lives of al] who came in contact with her were colored also by her great love oi nature and her joy in all that was beautiful and graceful, whether in .people, the out af doors, or in literature dr art.
