Counting today, only nine shop- Ing days remain before Easter— and 'before the new state sales tax axes effect. Spring weather last week-end, nd again this week, has brought he urge to brighten up both per- onal appearance and the appear- ico of homes and surroundings. It is to everyone's advantage to uy within the next nine days. The lew state sales tax will then 5n- rease prices two per cent. Merch- nts are specifically required un- ,er the new .law to pass the tax along to the consumer. A stiff lenalty is provided for merchants who violate the new law. Sales of one to 14c will not he axed, collection off a two per cent ax on such small sales being impractical. Sales from 15c to 65c mil carry a cent tax; from G5c to 9c, two cents; on a dollar or over, straight two per cent, the major raction governing.

Persons who have been going without needs -Should hesitate no longer, for they will soon begin to pay big interest on the money they do not spend now. Algona for the next nine days will more than ever be the 'best shopping town in north Iowa or southern Minnesota.

TALK LIGHTS FOR PARKJAST NIGHT A joint meeting of the city council, tbe park board, the school board, and tho Community club board was held at the city hall last night to discuss installation of lights at Athletic park for loot- ball, kittenball, and other games. The question of lights has been debated two years, -backed particularly by the kittenballers. At first only sufficient light for this was planned, but later the system to permit'night football games was advocated. The council has had the proposal before it several times, but because of legal provisions against spending money in this way for park improvement has not been able to act. The park board, too, which has a small balance on hand, has not been disposed to spend it on a single project. For a number of years a balance has been allowed to remain in the fund, only small sums being spent. This has permitted dropping the park fund levy, and no tax allocation has been made. The school board, which has also discussed the proposal, has looked with some favor on night football, both to increase revenue and to afford opportunity to see games to many who work in the daytime. However, the question of funds has (been a stumbling block.' There is now a proposal by which the park board and city would install the lights and a part of the revenue from night football games would be turned back till the equipment was .paid for.

The depression is beginning to lift for the middle west, because of the corn loans and the promise of more real money in the next few weeks from corn-hog payments. There is- now a much 'better feeling as friends meet in Algona Saturday nights, for again they can buy the little luxuries the long depression forced them to forego in favor of TAXES WILL BECOME DELINQUENT APRIL 1 County Treasurer M. J. Duffy warns taxpayers that there will be no extension of the time for payment of taxes this year. Taxes due in 1934 will become delinquent April 1 as usual. The penalty, however, was reduced by the legislature last year from one per cent a month to three-fourths of one per cent. Taxes can be paid in halves, the second half due September 1, delinquent October 1. Only the first half will become delinquent April 1. A year ago extension was voted by the legislature to allow taxes payable in 1933 to be paid up to July 1 without penalty. This was an emergency measure and applied to last year only. Taxes are being paid better than usual so far this year, and a rush around the end of the month is ex- Corn loan money is much CORPORATION HAS $400, FORFARMERS H. J.

Portland and Plum Creek townships lias been declared 'bp Dr. L. W. Fox acting under instructions of the state department of health as a rabies preventive. A police dog which severely mangled Mrs. T. R. Packard's arm a week ago was a victim of rabies, and Mrs. 'Pickard was taken to the state university hospital, where sihe is receiving the Pasteur treatment. The dog had been acting strangely hut nothing was thought of the fact by the family till it atacked Mrs. Pickard without warning aft she stepped out of the house. The- dog was lying just outside, and ehe> paid no attention to him. The dog suddenly growled and leaped on Mrs. Pickard. She dodged, but the dog caught her arm in. his jaws and 'gashed it deeply. Babies Diagnosis Confirmed. After the doctor had dressed the arm Veterinarians Fox and Winkle were called, and a etntative diagnosis of rabies was made. The animal was locked up in a shed, but died next day. The head was then sent to Iowa State college for examination of the brain, and word Friday informed Doctor (Fox that the dog had a definite case of rabies. ( This was the first positive diagnosis of rabies in Doctor Fox's 18 years in practice. In several other cases the disease had been suspected, and may have existed, but no positive sign could be found. ''••• QuiirantiileVfor-'' The quarantine will days, and may be extended, it's! scope may also be extended to include the .town of Algona and some other neraby townships. Dogs often travel ;20 miles in a night, and a dog in one stage of the disease has an urge to keep moving. ' The Pickard dog, in this way, may have spread the disease in widely separated regions in fights with other dogs or with wild animals who may have transmitted it 189 on CWA Rolls are Dropped Here 'In accordance with orders from Washington and Des Koines CWA mployment is being gradually re- 'uced.

'20—At a meeting oi Kossutih Chapter No. 201, O. E. S. last week Tuesday evening it was voted to consolidate Progressive chapter, Bancroft, with the local chapter. The (Bancroft chapter desired to consolidate because it has only a small number of residenl members. Burt, being the older chapter, will retain its name, meeting place, etc. Final steps in col- solidation will probably take place at the next meeting of the loca chapter April 10.

'Edward Wagner suffered the lost of part of a thumb last week Tues day, when an ax cut it off as he was splitting wood. He also sul f ered a gash, in the palm. Suspects Not to be Killed. For that reason it is important that every dog owner pay careful attention to his dog in the next few- weeks. All wild animals are carriers of rabies, and though they too die of it their cases are usually- longer in duration. 'If a farmer for any reason suspects his dog of having the disease it should be immediately tied up> and a veterinarian called. The advice is not to kill the dog. This is important, for a dog must die a natural death in order that a <posi- ive analysis of rabies may foe made. ^ Dogs Should be Taccinated. Dogs killed 'before natural deatbj do not develop telltale formations in the brain which are (the only true indications of the disease.- It is only when a dog diea naturally that these are formed. It is important in treatment of a bitten human being to know positively that the disease exists. All dogs should be vaccinated for rabies, particularly dogs purchased as playmates for children.
