The limitation Is on the basis of population, and Kossuth's limit Is 60 between January 1 and July 1. Another change is that approval of the board of supervisors Is necessary for admittance as a county charge. In this county each supervisor will have charge In his own district. Commitment papers must be signed by a supervisor and at least two taxpayers. If because of congestion at the hospital patients cannot be treated within 30 days following receipt of papers at Iowa City the county must assume charge and pay all charges. In other words the patient must be cared for as a pay patient either at Iowa City or at home. Another provision is a 30-day limit of stay at the hospital as a "free" patient. After that time the county must establish the patient on a pay basis. These changes were made to prevent counties from shipping too many patients to the hospital who could be as well taken care of at home. Some counties near Iowa City have made a flagrant practice of shipping everyone who could not pay, or who was slow pay, to the , Ufy yesterday to visit his parents.

HOW MUCH DO YOU SPENDJNJTORES? Residents of Algona and the vicinity spend approximately $400 a head at retail stores and shops here each year, according to an estimate made by the Chicago wholesale market council. The state of Iowa's total retail trade of about a billion dollars is equal to almost one-third the volume of the wholesale trade at Chicago, whose wholesale market district lying just west of the famous "Loop" is considered one of the greatest in the world. The study which revealed figures was made by the newly formed wholesale council to determine how best to meet the needs of retail merchants who depend largely on Chicago wholesalers for goods to stock their shelves for Iowa purchasers. The estimate is based on the total retail trade of the state and upon the population, both reported in the latest United States census. The ?400 a head, or about $1,500 a family, spent with Iowa merchants includes all purchases except personal services such as laundry and barbering. Falls, S.
