There were filed recently In dis- ,rict court two $10,000 personal njury damage suits which are like- y to be hard-fought. Plaintiffs in the suits are Claude •Iain, Algona, and Rose L. Joss, vife of the tenant on the northwest quarter of Sec. 27, Springfield township. Defendants are the Metropolitan Life Insurance company, owner of farms, and Tom E. Dailey, Algona contractor and builder. Attorneys for the plaintiffs are Sullivan, McMahon & Linnan, Al- jona, and D. M. Kelleher, Fort Dodge.

S. senator-or- titles, as follows- something, is a candidate this year for the republican nomination Tor governor. Haig lives now near Fail-field, it is believed, but for campaign purposes he hails from Fort Dodge. He is a personable fellow who when he was here some years ago affected a sort of semi-military or sportsman's costume. Apparently lie inherited money. He gives the impression of a dilletante statesman whose political mentality is somewhat peculiar. When Haig was here he sailed under the name of Hague, but for a reason not known here he changed to Haig later. He is listed in Who's Who. One of his peculiarities has been jumping into a campaign suddenly and then just as suddenly jumping out again. He" has never cut much of a politcial figure, and so far as known here Moines, and Hutchison & Hutchison, Algona, represent the insurance company, and L. A. Winkel appears for Mr. Dailey. Only the petitions of the plaintiffs are on file, the defendants not having yet filed answers. Explosion Deafens Farmwife. The cases arose from dynamite accidents which occurred last fall while Mr. Dailey and his crews were engaged in building operations on farms owned by the insur- once company. Mrs. Joos alleges that the accident in which she was injured took place October 11 while boulders were being blasted for foundations of buildings which the Dailey crew were about to erect on the farm. It is charged that the blasting operations were going on near the house which the Joos family occupied and that pieces of stone were thrown against the house and through windows; -that -the concussions ruptured Mrs. Joos's left eardrum; that as the result of infection in the ear, mastoiditis developed; that an operation was . performed; and that she is now afflicted with lifelong partial deafness in the ear in question.

He quoted a grocer who [perhaps owns a $2000 equity in a [WOOD etock. His turnover is ten' [limes _a year, or $50,000, and his tax will consequently be $1,000, or lalf his own capital.

This " make law all company in Sec. 1, Plum Creek township, where the Dailey crew was also engaged in building operations and blasting boulders, Mr. Hain being a member of the crew. Mr. Hain was cutting stakes and had no part in the blasting operations, which were conducted near by. He claims that shattered bits of stone and splinters of wood were blown into his face as the result of an explosion and that his right eye was cut and had to be removed. Mr. Hain charges that neither the insurance company nor Mr. Dailey carried compensation liability insurance and that by reason of their failure to do so the defendants are liable to him for his injuries under the common law as modified by statute. GRAND JURY FAILS TO INDICT IN THE ROBIN SON HOLDUP Nels Davis and Pearl Reynolds, held in connection with the assault on the late C. C. Robinson and his wife last winter, were released Tuesday, when the grand jury reported no indictment, and both, immediately left Algona. A clear alibi was furnished for Davis, Reynolds, and W. W. Martin, the latter a former Algonian who was implicated with Davis and Reynolds, by Mr. and Mrs. Wiley Hines, farmers southeast of Algona, who said the trio were at their home from 7:30 till 11 on the night of the attack, except for a half an hour's absence. Reynolds and Davis were tentatively identified by Mrs. Robinson as two of three men who bounc and gagged her and Mr. Robinson and then ransacked their home, in a search of $10,000 which they believed the Robinsons had hidden on the premises from out of the proceeds of an estate. The attack on the Robinsons took place shortly after 7:30 p. m. and the trio were there two hours during which they wrecked the fur niture in the attempt to find money. Three men were arrested on State street the same night, when they drove their car into the curb They were sentenced to ten days it jail on drunkenness charges, anc At the tim * this bill lay his Wins Bank Night Purse. M. K. Cullen, Whittemore. won a $25 bank deposit night prize at the Call theater Tuesday evening. Adding to the interest of the occasion was the fact that the day was Mrs. Cullen's birthday. She is the daughter of Anton Streit, Algona, and the sister of Mary Streit, M. J. Streit, and Mrs. H. M. Smith, all of Algona. Swift Employe Is Retired After 26 Years; Pensioned George Kuhn was pensioned last week by Swift & Co. and will receive $30 a month from the company for the rest of his life. He had worked here for Swift & Co. 20 years. .Retirement became effective on his 65th birthday. Pensions are al- loived by Swift & Co. to em- ployes who have been 15 years in the service and are injured or reach the age limit. The amount is based on the length of service and according to a percentage of wages or salary. Mr. Kuhn is the father of Percy Kuhn, who was seriously injured when beaten by a gang a week ago Sunday night. BOARD WILL REFUND $452,000 IN BONDS NEW RULINGS ON HOG QUOTA ARE RECEIVED Number of Litters Must Also Be Reduced. Hy G. A. Bonnstctter. If his full allotment of litters is farrowed this year, but the number of pigs saved and raised for market from such litters is below the pig production allotment under the contract, the producer will not be permitted to farrow additional litters to fulfill his pig allotment, according to word received by G. A. Bonnstetter from Dr. A. G. Black, chief of the Corn-Hog section of the A. A. A. "Paragraph 2 of the contract states that the producer must reduce his hog litters in 1934, as well as the number of hogs produced for market, by not less than 25 per cent," Dr. Black said. "It should be kept in mind, however, that the producer who signs the contract gets his hog reduction payments even though he lose all of his hogs through disease in 1934.' Feeder Pigs Amendment. An amendment to Paragraph 3 relating to feeder pigs has been announced by the administration. Cooperators may purchase this year feeder pigs in excess of the adjusted average number purchased by him in 1932-33, provided: 1. That the producer files with the county allotment committee signed request for the purchase o such excess feeder pigs which shal state: number to be bought; from whom they are to be bought; anc reasons for the purchase. Befon the purchase is made the reques must also be signed by a membe of the community committee an approved by the county allotmen committee. 2. That feeder pigs purchased in 1934 were farrowed on a farm lo cated in the same county as the land under contract, and bought only from persons have executed contracts as SOUTHGATE T^ FEATURES, so familiar to Algonians, will no longer be seen here. The pictures shows Mr. Southgate at his best. The cut was caned by the Britt News-Tribnue. 32 NEW GARS ARE SOLD; LOOKS LIKE DEPRESSION OVER Thirty-two new automobiles were registered in the first two weeks of April, which indicates that automobile sales here are still booming. There were 55 new cars sold in March, 25 in February, and six in January. This brings the total in the county so far this year up to 118. The whole number of cars new and old registered in the county since January 1 was 5969 up to Saturday night, and 777 trucks had been registered. A checkup March 1 showed that up to that time 376 TANGLE WILL HOLD UP THE NEW_AIRPORT State Wants Kossuth to Hire Expensive Welfare Agent. Supervisors W. B. McDonald, J. Cosgrove, Morris and Balgeman, County Engineer H, M. Smith, and County Auditor E. J. Butler were surprised Saturday, on a visit to Des Moines, to find that a new requirement practically prevents Kossuth county from securing CWA workers on its airport project. The requirement is that the county engage a social welfare worker approved by the organization and also engage two helpers. The total cost to the county would be in the neighborhood of $300 a month, of which $150 to $175 would be salary of the chief worker and the remainder salaries for the two assistants. This brought the airport proposition to an impasse. There was also the question of authority under which the grant was made originally. A carload of lumber and some 900 pounds of seed already shipped to the county under the authorization are to be held up pending decision. Lobbying is Charged. It appears that a welfare workers' organization lobbied through the requirements for such workers in order to make jobs for members Some 25 or more counties have had to engage welfare workers in order to complete their projects. The Kossuth officials felt that $300 a month could be spent much more effectively on relief for food fuel, and clothing. In average LAW REQUIRES RETAILERS TO HOLD PERMITS Everybody Who Selfc, Goods Must Obtain 50c License. A requirement of the new state sales tax law that perhaps Jew re~ tailers know about is that to do business in Iowa after May 30 they must have an official permit which- will cost them 50c. The new law, which took effect April 1, provides that 60 days thereafter "it shall be unlawful for any person to engage in or transact business as a retailer" unless a permit is held. The law further requires every etailer to make specific applica- on for a permit to the State Board f Assessment and Review, Des were who pro- Reynolds' and Davis were late bound to the grand Jury on a charge of robbery with aggravation. Neither of the two men could furnish $5000 bond so they had ever since been held in jail, awaiting grand jury action. Mr. Robinson died from shock and a heart attack ten days after the attack. amounted Iowa laws - re> Mr - 'Patterson co ? stitutionau y | Ca »ey Picks Traer Honors 0 J°£ tb * n ' Casey - ot A »-Amerlcan chosen Unl- rt ty ' - ne n- tart we^ lah °? la ' was announc- ' nd the Traer Star° nl y Iowa paper ««, mein berBhlp.

Mr. Ditto and other members of the commission will meet at Humboldt tonight to go over the matter. Humboldt county has been the stumbling block in the path of No. 169 paving for some time, the county having twice voted down bonds. There is now a possibility that federal unemployment relief and PWA money may be used for this purpose. The highway commission has already let a contract for paving from McGregor street south to the fairgrounds, this being part of a project in which State and Phillips paving on No. 169 will be done inside the, city limits. The work is scheduled to start either this weekend or next week. No. 169 is ready for paving, work preparatory to bringing It to grade and on bridge aad culvert replacements hayiBS been practically completed in the last two or three years. New bridges across the river south of town, straightening tfce road in twp places, and diverting the channel of the river in an- Qtber pUws» have beea done with a view to paving. TREPTOW WILL IS SET ASIDE BY_ JUDGE HEALD The will of the late William Treptow, who for many years lived southwest of Burt, was denied probate Tuesday on a jury verdict directed by Judge Heald. Hutchison & Hutchison appeared for Mrs. Treptow, who resisted probate, and Quarton & Miller, by assignment of the court, appeared for the pro-' ponents. Mr. and Mrs. Treptow were childless, and Mr. Treptow in his will gave his wife a life income from the property, which, besides household goods and some farm personal property, consists of an 80-acre farm and $2,000 in bonds. The remainder interests were willed to a sister of Mr. Treptow and Mrs. Treptow's heirs in equal shares. On consideration after Mr. Treptow's death the widow did not feel that she could accept the will, and she therefore asserted her statutory rights. The practical effect of the verdict will be to give Mrs. Tj-eptow an unqualified title to all the property, both real and personal instead of only a life income. Horses in Demand. Horse buyers from the Bast are active in northern Iowa. A. E. Clayton, Cresco farmer, sold a well matched team of sorrels Monday for shipment to Cleveland^ Ohio. Many carloads of good Kossuth horses have been shipped east this winter. Eight columns of board proceedings appear in today's Advance, more than three columns of which was necessitated by proceedings to call $452,000 in primary road bonds for funding. Of this amount $252,000 in bonds was issued in 1928 at 4% per cent and the remaining $200,000 in May, 1929, at 5 per cent. This was at the height of the speculative boom which later crashed in the fall of 1929, and the interest rates had to be high to dispose of the bonds. By the terms of the bonds the county has the right to call the bonds for payment May 1, 1934, and [his option is now being exercised. The new bonds will be payable in annual installments running from 1943 to 1950 at 3% per cent, or a saving of three-fourths per cent on the 1928 bonds and 1^4 per cent on the 1929 bonds. 1 The saving in interest will be Corn-Hog.

The interest saving and the premium will be "on paper" so far as the county is concerned, for the bonds are really state obligations, and the county serves only as a sort of guarantor or endorser. The tate will reap the benefits. Money is now seeking public onds of all sorts because oppor- unities for safe use elsewhere are Error is Corrected.

The park board ordered a set-up for kittenball, which will be also suitable for football at a meeting Monday night, and Tuesday night the school board authorized extension to include whole of the football field. The park board consists of M. P. Weaver, E. J. Gilmore, and A. E. Michel, but the latter is now at Des Moines, and was not present. The commission will install enough equipment to cover the east end of Athletic park, where the kittenball diamond is located. One, or possibly two, extra poles will be required, because of concentration of light over the infield. The school board will install the additional poles and lights for the west end of the football field at a cost of between $750 and $800. The kittenball equipment will cost the park board approximately $1100. This would have been cut a third if for kittenball alone. Short poles can be used for kittenball field lighting, but much higher poles are required for football. The park board ordered the higher poles, which sentup the cost. McMahon Out Tomorrow. County Attorney M. C. McMahon will be released from quarantine for scarlet fever tomorrow. He suffered .only a light attack, but has been in quarantine the full period of 28 days. G. D. Shumway, his predecessor as county attorney, substituted. months this amount will take care of nearly half such expense. In view of the situation work on the airport project on county ground at the Irvington intersection with No. 169, south of Algona has been halted, and nothing more will be done till a more favorable ruling is obtained from either Washington or the state authority Ruling is State Requirement. Some years ago Kossuth county had a welfare worker, but the expense of maintenance more than offset advantages, hence the worker was dropped, and county poor relief has since been cared for by the supervisors and town anc township officials. It is understood that the ruling In question Is merely a state re quirement, and that it may be can celled or modified by national CWA authority. The county will not be held lia ble for the carload of lumber no for the alfalfa seed ordered unde authority of the state administra tor, it is understood. PERCY KUHN STILL IN CRITICAL CONDITION County Treasurer M. J. Duffy lias received a supply of permit application forms from the state board of assessment and review and will give copies to applicants. Neither the state board nor the treasurer is required to notify retailers or circulate application forms. It is the duty of retnilers to know the law and on their own motion comply with it. koines, on a form provided by th.e >oard and send with the applica- ion a bank draft, certified check, ar postal or express order for the ee. Permit Must be Displayed. Any retailer who owns more than one place of business must obtain a permit for each one. Permits are not assignable, and they are good only for the location described in. .he application. Apparently a new permit must be obtained in case of a change of location, and if a retailer sells his business the new: owner must obtain a permit.. <•> The permit must be conspicuously displayed in the which It is issued. location for Apparently a Facts You Can Learn From County Board Proceedings Among other things you will learn from perusal of the board proceedings— That the county has agreed to pay a woman $10 a month for life in consideration of transfer of certain real estate. That the county has bought seven tons of fertilizer for use in raising spuds. That four beer permits outside incorporated towns have been granted. That certain widows' pensions have been granted, also certain exemptions from taxes. That the limit of county deposits in the Iowa State bank has been raised from $400,000 to $900,000. That the county is about to refund $452,000 in primary road bonds at a big saving in interest. That the usual county bills have been allowed, including bills for the care of the poor. That the next meeting of the board will take place Tuesday, May 1. Percy Kuhn, who was so badly beaten up in a fight a week ago Sunday night, was reported slightly improved yesterday, but his condition is still critical. Erysipelas set in on his head last weekend. • For a time over the week-end it appeared that the young man might not recover. He had a temperature of 102 to 105 for six days following the beating, and it was not till Monday that it dropped to normal. It was again up last night. Nothing definite has beea learned concerning the whereabouts of the two men responsible for the beating, who are still being sought by local officers, but it is believed they are in hiding at Des Moines. The victim's erysipelas attack was believed yesterday to have been stopped at the neck. » t C. C. Tennis Court '• Will Be Lighted A group of tennis playing members of the Country club met at Dr. J. N. Keneflck's office Monday night and donated $5 each towards installation of electric lights on one of the courts. The west court has been resurfaced with a limestone dust by the club, and now has a white surface nearly as hard as paving, which makes it one of the best courts in this section of the state. The lights are to be installed within twp or three weeks. Fines for Drunkenness. 0. E. Kike was fined $5 and costs in Mayor C. F.

Rachel Becker, Irvington, was champion Kossuth speller last year. permit remains good till it is revoked or the law is repealed or; expires. The sales tax law is by its terms limited to three years and if not reenacted will expire March 31, 1937. The State Board of Assessment and Review is given power to revoke a permit after hearing upon .en days notice. The law provides thai; any, re* mailer who does business after May 30 without a permit "shall be guil- :y of a disdemeanor, punishment for which shall be a fine of not more than one thousand dollars or imprisonment for not more than, one year, or both fine and imprisonment, in the discretion of the court." Who is a Retailer? The law defines a retailer as fol-» lows: "Retailer includes every personi engaged in the business of selling tangible goods, wares, or merchandise at retail, or the furnishing of gas, electricity, water and communication service, and tickets of admissions to places of amusement License.
