Remodeling Sale m W ? a - 1C nrc l )arln ff for N IC Biggest'Fall business we over experienced. We are now carrying a heavy stock. J here is just as much goods in our 00-ft, basement as you see in the store proper. I hare a world of shoes, overshoes, and furnishings bought for Fall. August 1st we start building on a 40-ft, addition to the hack of the store. This will give us 130 feet of storeroom. My idea is to have a real store for you, where you can come and be at home. Where you can buy anything you want from soup to nuts. In addition to building on, the entire store will be remodeled. That is why we are going to run a remodeling sale. We have lots of shoe? and other goods that we want to dispose of before the Fall shipments begin to arrive. So, beginning Friday, July 20 and continuing for eight days we will positively offer you the greatest bargains you ever saw in Algona or anywhere else. All summer goods must go regardless of price, and many other lines that I want to dispose of. This will be a HEAL SALE. You will find bargains galore in good honest up-to-date standard shoes. Our hosiery department will be turned loose for a clean sweep. Underwear, odd pants, sweaters, jackets, dress shirts, work shirts, overalls, suspenders, garters,and all furnishings go into this sale. Without blow or bluster we will show you the greatest money-saving sale you ever attended. I intended to retire this coming year but find that is out of the question. A few weeks back I laid off three days and it nearly killed me. To retire would mean to die. So I am going to stay in the game and continue to hand out bargains. I enjoy business. It has become a second nature. With more room and plenty of help we will be in better shape to care for you. Building now will give some employment. Keeping the store going will give four or five clerks a job. Under present conditions I figure that is better than closing out and putting the money in a tin can. Sale starts Friday, July 20, and enils Saturday night, July 28.

Under a new federal law private banks are required to report their condition to the comptroller of the currency and publish the same. Accordingly the Lone Rock bank published the first report in its 35 years of existence in the Fenton Reporter last week. A dozen years ago there were 28 banks in Kossuth county. Only six of them have survived the postwar debacles, and the Lone Rock bank is one of them. This is considered a notable- tribute to the careful management of N. L. Cotton, who has been in charge of the bank ever since it was founded in 1899. Other county banks which have survived are the Exchange State, Wesley; the Farmers State, Whittemore; the Titonka Savings; the Farmers & Traders, Bancroft; and the Ledyard State. To these six old banks are added two new ones: the Iowa State bank, Algona; and the Burt Savings bank. Mr. Cotton is ably assisted in the management of the Lone Rock bank by E. M. Jensen, assistant cashier. The bank's statement shows that it is in excellent condition. It owes no bills payable and has no assets pledged as rediscounts. The deposits stand at $176,000 and the loans at $121,000. Cash on hand and with correspondents exceeds 137,000. The bank's paid up cap- tal is $20,000. 4 List price at Pontiao, Michigan.
