Jens Peter Ruberg, G4, retired Lu Verne farmer, ih.anged himself with his suspenders and a belt ir* the outhouse adjoining his. Lu Verne home Wednesday morning at about 8:30. Mr. Ruberg had been suffering from a tumor at the base of the brain which was causing slow paralysis, and he had attempted suicide the night before and again earlier that morning, but Iliad been frustrated both times.

The Rev. Father George Theobald, St. Joe, congratulated the class of '34 on having readied another milestone in its educational career, also the parents who made t)he sacrifices necessary for their children to have a Christian education, the faculty which guided the class to higher ideals, and in particular Father Davern who by earnest efforts has done much for the furtherance of education in Algona.

It is thought that someone threw a cigaret on it. The blaze was discovered by Alice Behlmer, who was in the confectionery. The fire was put out with buckets of water, and the firemen were not called. George St. John, fireman who clerks at Moe & Sjogren's, helped to put it out. The loss was covered by insurance, and it is expected that it will be replaced this week. It was new just before the Fourth of July last year. A small fire was put out at the George Lee home on south Minnesota street a week ago without the aid of the firemen. Rubbish in the furnace caught fire, and because the chimney was clogged the smoke couldn't get out. Oscar Anderson, fire chief, was called and put the fire in the furnace out. The only damage done was from smoke. W. B. Williams, Dakota City, and the Paul Construction Co., Fort Dodge, were successful bidders for gravel jobs in Kossuth county at a letting held by the board of supervisors Monday. Mr. Williams will have the graveling in the south half of the county at a contract figure of $14,897.55, and the Paul company will have the North End at $15,487.35. There are 45 miles of graveling in this year's projects. Only Kossuth labor secured via. the federal reemployment office over the Iowa State bank, will be used, and all but highly specialized' help which cannot be replaced must work a 30-hour week. It is anticipated that the two concerns will work ten hours a day with two crews, splitting the week in the middle to meet hour requirements and using each crew half time. One-fourth of graveling costs is assessed against property contiguous, and the rest is paid from the county road construction fund.

HATCHERY CASE TO BE TRIED IN JUNE IN FEDERAL COURT The case against Maris E. DeWolf, Spencer, owner of a number of chick hatcheries, including the Kossuth Hatchery, Algona, is expected to come up for action in June in federal court at Sioux City. His attorney is a son of Judge Heald. DeWolf, whose case has attracted national attention, is chargec with having sold chicks at a price lower than that fixed in the hatchery code. He admits the sale, bu claims that it was only for a lim ited time to get rid of surplus chicks. Announcements of DeWolf's at torney indicate that it is planned to fight the case through to the federal supreme court on the. theory that 'DeWof is not engaged in interstate business and that congress has no power to control intrastate business. Generally speaking, this is deemed inescapable law, but some courts,' federal and state, have Chubb farm south of Algona, a son ot the late Frank Fox.

In the DeWolf case the prosecu- _ion will probably try to show that DeWolf was at all times willing to accept orders from outside the state, and has done some interstate ausiness. Whether the court wil lold that filling occasional orders from outside the state, where the principal business is intrastate makes an establishment subject to a law regulating interstate bus! ness presents a point which may be new.
