At a city council meeting 'las Thursday evening Mayor Spech was authorized to take over a lease on the airport land now held by H E. Ward, north of town. This least has two years to run. Airports must be controlled Iby a public body. The county has given use of the land if the city takes care of the lease. CWA workers on the airport project have been hamipered by last week's snow and subsequent rains. The ground is heavily underlaid with sand, and drainage is quick.

An- MYSTERY OF THE LOST HANDBAGSEEMS ABOUT READY m SOLUTION f the Confectionery. he easoli «e cook stove Sun- Solution of the mystery sur- j rounding the fate of a handbag and bank certificate lost by a Wesley woman nearly a year ago seemed at hand yesterday. Another Wesley woman read the Advance's stories about the loss, and wrote that ehe found such » handbag and when the loss was not advertised burned it and the contents. The handbag was found off the paying on a sideroad. There was no money in it, and inasmuch «s the loser says it contained seven or eight dollars in money, it seems likely that someone found the bag, carried it away, then took out the money, and threw the bag down. The woman who found the bag remembers that among other things it contained a bank slip. The only evidence she has left is a string of beads which she gave to her daughter, but •to. to'able to describe the bag and some of the other contents. iJ.UMlHU'UJTll^BMPIi^Pffg^**^'"-'-"" 1 -•'•• Formation of Ball League Up in Air; Nothing Announced Nothing has been heard from national baselball league headquarters at Minneapolis about organization of other towns tentatively included in a proposed league of eight teams in southern Minnesota and northern Iowa. The Algona organization wirea headquarters a week ago Saturday that Algona would join the^eague, and has been waiting ever since for a reply from the headquarters before going ahead with plans. Though the playing season does not begin till May 20, some weeks of practice are Accessary before wlay begins, and time is also needed in which to find players. The locals are therefore anxious to get started. 0 City Will Cut Rates to Meet Sales Tax in view of "the new state sales tax the city faces the same situa- tfon that counted it two or three vears ago, when the federal government ikid a tax on consumers o?™ricity.

Kittenball players and a numlber of business men took part. Dr. W. D. Andrews represented the school board, and M. P. Weaver the park board. Discussion centered on whether the park board should 'light only the kittenball field or install lights for football also. Kittenball lights, would cost more tfhan $600; lights for both kittenball and football, some $1900. A suggestion that kittenball lights be installed as a start towards lighting the football field was ruled out as impractical. Lights for kittenball require short poles only; for football, poles nearly twice as high. If t/he football field were lighted for kitten- ball the cost would approximate $1,000. Poles cost from $30 up. Agreement was finally reached for a joint meeting soon of the park and school boards and representatives of the Community club COURT ADJOURNED 2 WEEKS; JUDGE'S WIFEJTILL SICK Judge George A.

Court was, however, adjourned for two weeks Tuesday afternoon following call of the calendar and the entry of defaults.

At least one member of the state? commission is visiting every townt. selected for a store.

The reason for postponement was lack of bidders by agreement. It was felt also that postponement would reap the benefit of many more thousands of federal loans and other moneys which will he received soon and will enable taxpayers to settle.

The commission seems particularly- anxious to get managers known for good sense. It is the design to make liquor easily available at a price that will drive out the bootlegger, yet require purchasers to toe of good, repute. Three Locoaions Inspected. Three locations were considered by Mr. Frieland. One is the forv mer garage building on north Thorington owned by N. C Rice, at present vacant. Another is the W. E. Naudain (building across from the Masonic Temple. Though the law makes no specification, and neither of the men here made any statement, it is suspected that the Naudain building's proximity to th«fc Methodist church and • the foigfc school will be a bar to its selection. The third location is part of the present Kohlhaas Bros, garage building. 'If this is accepted thet entire building may be remodeled to meet requirements of the commission. Sherman Seeks Managership. The touilding selected will be- leased to the commission. Fixtures, it is believed, wild toe. owned: the commission, and title to all liquor kept in the commission. Salaries will not depend upon sales and will be paid by the state. One> or two men besides the manager may be engaged as help. It is reported that a number of applications have been made for job as manager here. In public sentiment T. C. Sherman is believed most favored. which was a truck. A total of 5,910) icenses had been issued in Kossuth when the records were closed Saturday evening. This is nearly : 00 ahead of last year's registra- ion record and indicates (better hues. Payment of delinquent taxes by mail Saturday was so great that the office was swamped and could not get all credits on the books (before the time set for the sale, which was another reason for postponement.
