School let out Friday. The first case here was that of Margaret Hullerman, teacher in the fifth and sixth grades, who was quarantined at the Kossuth hospital in February, but has been back at teaching for several weeks.

Many patients have had only a headache and a sore throat for several days, and then became apparently well again. It is not till the skin begins to peel that the disease becomes evident to laymen. Quarantines for scarlet fever are by law for 28 days, for one having the disease can spread jjerms that long.

Most other new cases are foreclosure actions. 'Frederick Thies, of North Kossuth, filed a petition, last week for modification of a decree of divorce entered a year ago. Under the decree he is paying his wife $25 a month alimony, which he claims is excessive. I-Ie says his wife is a chiropractor at Golden, Colo., and is now earning her own living. By court order filed Tuesday (Mrs. Alma Pearson, deputy court clerk, was named referee in pro- ibate to succeed Clerk E. J.

The grand jury will sit next week Tuesday morning, but the petit jury will not report till a week from Tuesday. rate on new loans is 4% when made hrougih a national farm loan association, or 5 per cent when made directly by a federal land bank. The new plan means that a farmer securing a loan virtually becomes agent of the government for sale of JiFMC bonds in order to secure the cash, for his loan. It is anticipated that loan companies and life insurance companies holding mortgages will accept the FFMC bonds without question. far no other candidate has been announced. Mr. Bartlett has lived here all his life, he is a graduate of the Algona high, school, and he obtained a business education at Cedar Rapids. He served as Deputy Auditor under Bertha E. Johnson, and his competecy for the recordership is admitted. Change in Lakota Editor Announced Burt, Mar. 27—J. G. Thaves, who for the past ten years has been with the Burt Monitor, last week completed a deal whereby he became editor of the North Kossuth. Record at Lakota.

Another big increase in footings is shown, the same being now past the two million mark for the first time, the amount being $2,018,303. The County Savings was the only Kossuth bank ever to have footings in excess of two millions. The bank has liquid assets — u. S state and municipal bonds, cash, and due from banks—in the sum of SI 513,365, an astonishing total ;n a community supposed to be hard A new item on the resources side is $116,110 in corn loans. These loans are backed by the government and are instantly convertible into cash. Q24 The deposits exceed $1,892,JM4, and give promise of exceeding two millions in the next official atate- m Tbe official published statement shows that postal savings deposits of the Algona postoffice now stand at $170,000 compared with some $400,000 in the last preceding statement. This reduction is in .part due to the new federal .guaranty act, but also in part to growing confidence in the (bank's own standing. The statement is warranted that the'task's next official statement will be likely to show a further reduction in postal savings deposits to a small figure. G. O. P. in County Awakes and Casts Eye on Situation More or less secrecy surrounds a meeting of Kossuth re 1 publicans nt the Algona hotel Monday evening (.0 organize the nucleus- of a county republican club. No one has been found who would give out much news about it. It is given out that G. I), Sluuinvay was elected president; former sheriff L. E. Hovey, secretary. It is also stated that another and larger meeting soon lias been planned. Kumors that the question of a complete county ticket for the June primaries was discussed have not been verified. LEDYARD MAN HELD GUILTY OF ABUSE OF HOLSTEIN COW Charles Eggerth, Ledyard, was found guilty by Justice Danson Monday of a charge of cruelty to animals, particularly a Holstein cow, one of whose legs he cut off in January. He was fined $25 and costs of $39, but his attorney, Judge Quarton, filed notice of appeal. A case of cruelty to a bull, which it was claimed Eggerth tied up and beat to exhaustion, was dismissed on payment of costs of $39.90, but notice of writ of error has also appealed this case. The two cases were tried in the courtroom of the courthouse last week Tuesday afternoon, but were continued to Monday on appeal of defendant's attorney for more time in .which to prepare. The complaint filed concerning the cow was made by Lawrence Swift, and that concerning the bull by Emory A. 'Smith, both of whom formerly worked 'for Eggerth. . The costs of the two cases were high, for eight witnesses testified for the state and two for the defendant. Swift charged that Eggerth be- cams infuriated when the cow kicked him while foe was milking another cow, so he beat it about the legs with a board in which there was a nail. The cow's legs developed sores, and later she 15 CWA MEN START WORK ONAIRPOHT Prepare County Land South of Town for Airplane Use. A crew of 15 CWA men started work Monday to grade and otherwise prepare the county ground at the Irvington corner south of town, on No .169 for an airport. •Supervisor W. E. McDonald and County Engineer H. M. Smith, who were at Des Moines last mid-week, secured allocation of this additional Kossuth project. This, however, is a federal CWA project, and is not affected by state CWA cessation of auch work. Between 15 and 20 men will be employed on the airport till it is! finished, wihich will ibe -before May 1. All of the men will toe taken from crews which have been working on CWA projects. New men cannot be taken on. Two Runways Planned. The work to be done on the county land for the airport includes grading as a major project. The ground will be leveled, holes filled in, and (bumps cut down. The tract will then be seeded to some hay crop whidh does not affect the landing of planes. Two runways for airplanes taking off will ibe plotted and conspicuously marked. The bay or other crop will be mowed several times a season on these runways, so that speed in taking off will not be retarded by heavy .growth. Field to be Bordered. The field will be bordered by standard air field markers consisting of (boards eight inches wide 1 and several feet long placed at regularly spaced intervals to outline the field. A new fence will .be constructed. There -are two county gravel pits on the land, but they are in corners and will not affect use of the airport. "Warning signs will probably be placed near them to prevent pilots from cracking up. LEO, DAILEY, SPENCER,!

Invitations are toeing mailed today to a. representative (business man in every Kossuth town who is asked to> come himself and advise other retailers. Whether personally notified or not, every business man in the county is invited to attend. Local Retailers to Meet. Because of the recent reduction. , of s.pace in the courtroom due to installation of the corn-hog and Farm Bureau offices, the room is now too smaill to hold the crowd, and the I. 0. 0. F. hall was secured. Following- discussion of the tax there will ibe a short meeting of Algona retailers to complete organization of a local retail code authority under the NBA.

FUNDS ARE RAISED FOR ENTRY IN THE BASE BALL LEAGUE Five Algona baseball enthusiasts canvassed the (business men Saturday forenoon, and within two hours took pledges of more than $550, which assured a professional baseball team for Algona and entrance into the Class D of -the national league.

CORN-HOG DATA IS TO BEJHIBLISHED Names of Kossuth corrnhog producers and the principal production figures in their adjustment contracts will be published soon in the county newspapers, A. E. Clayton, chairman of the county allotment committee announces. 'Publication is one of the methods AAA is using to secure a check on corn-hog data before the contracts go to "Washington for acceptance "by Secretary Wallace. The figures to be 'published include: acres in farm; 1932-33 corn acreage; number acres rented to government; hog litters farrowed; number of hogs produced for market; number feeder pigs bought in 1932-33. Discovery of errors will not necessarily mean misrepresentation on the part of contract signers. In the wheat campaign many farmers made voluntary corrections. Anyone who sees_ a mistake in a neighbor's production figures may report it to the allotment committee. This report will be kept confidential. The committee will investigate to . see if adjustment is needed. Publication will also be an added check on accuracy of the contracts, give the public a chance to approve the production data, and help insure a fair deal to all. Howard Platt alleged that Mrs-. Miller assaulted him with a club) while he was putting up a fence oni south Minnesota street. Mr. Millet was charged with, threats of assault after Mrs. Miller had struck. Platt.
