He did tell his mother, rtrs. Sigurd Kleven, last Thursday afternoon that he was burned at a 'arm within six miles of Algonn. Officers, basing their search, on umors surrounding Kleven's injuries, arrested John Steil, north of Algona farmer, and Fred Brethorst, Sexton farmer, after search of their farms revealed alcohol, empty gallon-tin containers, etc. Kleven .was brought to the hospital last week Tuesday morning, with the entire front side of his body so severely burned that the skin had the hardness of a board. Doctors held out no hope for his recovery, but he refused to believe lie would succumb, and so died, taking his secret with him. Investigation in Begun. 'Sheriff Dahlhauser and County Attorney M. C. McMahon started investigation of the case last week Wednesday, when it became certain that the youth would die. No criminal action can be brought against the owner of the still because of such a death, it is believed, unless other facts indicate murder or manslaughter. The angles are, it is believed, being closely investigated by the grand jury, now in session. A search is directed against the owner of the still on a charge of ownership only. - •••— Steil Denies Knowledge. At the Steil farm, where, it is believed, Kleven was working, search disclosed a number of strange facts concerning which Mr. disclaimed knowledge. The crib had a false wall, and what appeared to be a completely filled crib of corn consisted merely of a wall space filled with corn, the rest an open room. There was nothing in the room when it was searched Friday, but there were traces of water poured into it recently, and what appeared to be an aperture for chminey pipe. With only three more days to go a terrific race between an Algona and a St. Benedict girl has developed for the title of Miss Mary Christmas in the big day here next week Thursday. Madonna Quinn iholds a slight lead over Lucille Eisenbarth, of St. Benedict, but the latter started the frist of the week and has amassed a formidable total of votes in the few days.

INDEPENDENTS AND FAIRMONT CLASH TODAY The Algona Independents will play Fairmont in a Turkey day football game on the local field this afternoon at 2:30. The two teams have already played together twice this year, and Algona lost both games. Fairmont won a game here 6-0, also, a game at Fairmont, 7-0. The Independents are now determined to win this third game. It is expected that Coaches Kenneth Mercer and Arthur (Nordstrom will play. They were in neither of the other games. Hda Grove, which was to have played here Sunday, failed to get a team together, so the game . was cancelled. corn SIX TEAMS BEGIN TOURNEY TO LAST TILL NEXT SPRING iSix teams in the local bowling league opened a tournament last week which will run most of the winter.

Cash Swea City, Nov. 28—.The council held a special meeting last week and discussed the government's Civil works program. A proposal to ask aid in graveling 30 blocks or more of the streets seemed to find favor. One difficulty is that money for hauling the gravel must be furnished locally as government money can be used only for hand labor.

KICKS FOR THE NAVY 'TVEJIS PICTURE from the sports section of the Sunday <Des Moines *• Register ought to interest all Kossuth, particularly Algona, for it is of a youth born in Algona 24 years ago, "Billy" Clark, son of Mr^ and Mrs. Frank Clark, Algona. For particulars see story elsewhere in t6day's Advance. The Register said: "W. C. (Bill) Clark has developed the somewhat na_sty—to the other fellow—habit of cracking up sweet dreams'of aspiring footballers. Just when an opposing team thinks it has the Navy squad under complete subjection, up rises Bill with a spectacular run or a sensational pass, and changes the complexion of everything." :omorrow. •*FARMER'S VIEW OF CITY PEOPLE TOLOJY PASTOR Rural and town relations was the subject of a talk given before the Rotary club Monday noon by the •Rev. A. H. Wood, of the Good Hope church.* Mr. Wood, has been Bachelor Passes; Operation Fails Funeral services were held Tuesday afternoon at the Laird & McCullough funeral chapel for Nick La Franz, single, who died Saturday at the Kossuth hospital of bowel complications following an operation for appendicitis' last week Monday.' The services were in charge of the Rev. P. 3. Braner, Trinity Evangelical Lutheran pastor. Mr. La Franz, who was only 38, was born in Iowa July 14, 1895, but when he was 14 both of ' his parents died, and he had since lived at various places. For the last four years he had made his home at Algona and had lived with the D. L. Bryans since last March. Inter-r ment was made in Riverview ceme- terq. pastor there more than nine years, and is well informed on the ideas of farmers, about town people, and some things that would bring about better relations between the country and town people. Some rather startling results were got from a questionnaire .that Mr. Wood submitted at a Union township Mothers & Daughters club meeting recently.. One complaint was directed against Algona's cpn- ested parking system. Opening chool at 8:30 was also scored, as oo early for farm children.

October was an inch and a half below normal. This has left the country almost in a drought condition. Unless there is a heavy snowfall this winter, farmers will find lack of moisture in the ground next spring serious. A good rain now before the ground becomes too frozen for the mois- ure to soak in would remedy conditions.

The corn loan plan has nothing to do with the corn-hog reduction plan, except that to get a loan the fanner must agree to enter info a corn-hog reduction contract as soon as notified. The fanner can take advantage of the corn loan plan, and then take advantage of the corn-bog reduction plan also. ; • Under the corn-bog plan the government will rent 20 per cent of each farmer's corn land and pay him 30c a bushel for the corn he could have raised on it.
