The naughty Streets of Paris is as blatant, as noisy, as deceptive as in.,193.3. This is the real "gypspot" of T the .Fair. The milling, crowds that throng its narrow thoroughfares on -a hot Sunday afternoon are; silent, but convincing proof of Barnum's memorable words — with the absence of odors. We even ate a hot-dog sandwich because we couldn't smell the darn thing as we were about to walk past. Toilets, which are gratis, are patterns of cleanliness, the result of another lesson the management learned from last year's experience. • -As usual, the "spiel" of the sideshow barkers is one of the biggest attractions.

Probably the most gigantic outstanding addition to the am 193 other L of ^9 gecti v brlok the • "•wurae'flj ^-~* ..sPft W ^8tye g a5 aP lf^?» Century of Progress is the hug Ford "building, unquestionably th most elaborate exhibit by prlvat enterprise ever staged in the his tory of the world. It is so stu the pendous, so carefully worked ou that even the unmechanical min is Impressed with its dignity an thoroughness. Here is business exalted almos to Art. In the long corridors o the main building are exhibits o parts which go into the making o rise a. Ford motor car — carburetors the speedometers, etc.—as well as in structtve displays of the basic ele ments of the earth, such as cork wool, aluminum, and iron. Transportation History Told At the end of this long, narrow itructure Is a mammoth roum :ower in the center of which is a luge open-air court, with benches around, and this houses a great revolving Earth. Around this, under ;he roof, Mr, Ford gives the history of transportation, not only empha- Izing the progress of his own car rom Its humble beginnings, but in- sludtng also the entire evolution of ransportation on, wheels. On the vails are gigantic photographic riezes depicting various stages of rangportation, probably the larg- >st Photographs ever shown. It is a great show,, a credit to Mr. Ford and his genius. Outside, adjoining the building, r. Ford has a large plot of 'round on which his V-Elghts are jhown on specially built highways. One of the most interesting of all the exhibits of the fair consists of small 25-ft. portions of all the highways of the world. Adding to all this, Mr, Ford imported the Detroit Symphony orchej}£ra, which gives concerts in an open-air ampitheatre. All in all, Weary has fairly outdone himself, in an effort perhaps to square his Absence from last year's exposition, . . Swift Bridge of Service. Another aditlon to this year's Century of Progress Is the Swift Bridge ,of Service, a great monument to the meat-packing industry. Here also. In a great open-air am- pltheatre, ope may pause in wanderings, rest tired "dogs" and aching hack, and listen to the Chicago Symphony orchestra under the direction of Karl Krueger.

If you thought the lighting ef fects of the 1933 night Pair wer entrancing, you will simply be daz ed with the beauty of this year' Pair. Here is truly a Fairyland o modern Science. While the build ings are almost uniformly whit in color, with only trimmings in pastel shades, the night illumina tion is positive—the colors fairl shout at you in their brilliance Here, again, we see the progres of a single year in the science o electricity. The 1934 Century of Progres seems more compact, more potenl less wandering and meanderini than last year's. This is becaus the extreme southern end has been virtually cut off, and the midwaj condensed and made more inter esting by eliminating many of the smaller and cheaper concessions You won't be disappointed in th Pair this year. It is the World's greatest show, the most breath-tak ing spectacle ever conceived in the fertile brain of man, produced witt lavish expenditure of money which Is so characteristic of Homo Amer icanus. Editor's Note—Referring to the storks in the German village, las week's Time, reporting a visit by ;he King of Siam and his Queen to President Von Hindenburg, spoke of the Hindenburg storks, which •eturn every year to their summer lome on the Hindenburg estate Time said that in east Prussia it was considered highly unlucky to ose one's storks . . . The leaning i.ower in the Italian village is probably indeed a replica of the famous ?isan tower. The papers reported some months ago that it would be feature of the fair.

The Rev. and Mrs. C. V. Hulse got home last Thursday from a 9,000-mile automobile tour which took them to nine national parks in the United States and two in Canada. They also made a short trip into Mexico, and thus visited two foreign countries as well as followed the slogan, See America First. Traveling with the Hulses were Floy Horn and Nancy Ruth Renaud, Algona teachers, and Mr. Hulse reports that the teachers paid for all gasoline. The teachers were supposed to spend time in college this summer, but special credit was given for the travel tour. Venture Into Mexico. From Algona the party wen first to Van Meter, where the firs night was spent with a brother o Mr. Hulse. Then from Des Moines they went to Kansas City to spenc a night with a brother of Miss Horn. Thence they proceeded via Fort Scott, Kans., and Blackwell Okla., to Texas. In New Mexico the party visi ted the famous caves near Carlsbad, and then crossed the border to Jaurez, Mex. Returning to the United States they visited the White Sands of New Mexico, a petrified forest, and the "Painted Desert," then stopped at the Grand Canyon for a few days. North to Seattle. After the Grand Canyon Arizona was crossed, and at Los Angeles the party stopped to visit Mr. Hulse's sister, Leota Hulse Black, and also called on other relatives and visited former parishioners. Prom Los Angeles they went to the Sequoia and Yosemite natoinal parks before visiting San Francisco and Palo Alto. The tour then led them north via a famous ferry at San Francisco and over a coastal highway to the Redwood forests of northern California and via Oregon to Portland. Then they visited Crater Lake national park and the Dells in Oregon, after which they followed the Colorado river drive to Tacoma and Seattle. Two Trips Into Canada. Out of Seattle the party had a 160-mile boat ride on Puget sound to Victoria, .Canada, taking the car along to motor back to Seattle, out of which they visited Mt. Ranier national park and climbed the mountain to a point half a mile above the snow line on a glacier. Spokane was the next stop, then Couer d'Alene, .Ida., where they turned north 200 miles and again into Canada to visit the Canadian Rockies, Lake Louise, and the Banff national park. The city of Calgary, Can., was the next stop, in the Canadian wheat country. They returned to the United States in Montana and there visited the Glacier national park. The trip home led through Great Falls, Mont., where Mr. Hulse's sister, Mrs. William Gagle, lives, the Devil's Tower in Wyoming, the Black Hills, and to Des Moines via Sioux Falls. Mr. and Mrs. Hulse slept in their automobile. The front seats fold back to make a perfect bed with an air-pressure mattress. The party spent only a few days at any one place, desiring to see as much as possible in a short time. They left Algona June 4 and were gone 6V6 weeks. a New Interest to Thrill Missed Siamese Twin Who Sought to Marry Once Stopped Here Daily newspapers have of late featured refusal of a marriage license in New York to one of the Hilton Siamese twins, sisters who are joined together at the hips. The refusal was made on moral grounds, but some editors have questioned the right of a marriage license clerk to deny the license, claiming that Siamese twins hare the same right to marry that other persons do. At last reports there was talk of a court action to compel issuance of a license. Some newspapers hare suggested that the application was a publicity stunt for the twins, who give vaudeville performances. The case is of particular interest because the twins and their manager stopped at the Algona hotel over night a few- years ago while they were en circuit. Cardiff Giant Once More On Rounds; Famed as Hoax Under auspices of Hagg Post the celebrated Cardiff Giant was exhibited here last Thursday, and for a day or two following, by the Mulroney Bros., Bmmetsburg. It was kept in a Brady transfer truck parked beside the Kossuth County State bank building and admissions were 19c plus a cent tax. The Cardiff Giant is one of the famous hoaxes of history. Well diggers found it in 1869 buried three feet on the Wm. C. Newell farm near Cariff, N. Y. It was supposed to be the body of a petrified man of huge dimensions. At the time it created a countrywide sensation, ,and many noted men were deceived j by it. Such savents as Oliver Wendell Holmes, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Judge Wm. C. Ruger of New York court of appeals, Professor McWaters of Yale, Prof. James Hall, New York State geologist, and many others declared that it was either the petrified body of a giant or a by a prehistoric New Physician at Swea City Former Fort Dodge Youth Dr. R. M. Minkel, Fort Dodge, has begun the practice of medicine and surgery at Swea City. He obtained a bachelor of science degree at the state university in 1930 and was graduated from the College of Medicine in 1932, since which he has served a year as hospital in- terne and has taken post-graduate work in chronic diseases. Dr. M. G. Bourne, Algona, and Dr. J. A. Mueller, Fenton, were Iowa City fellow students. Doctor Minkel's father, L. H. Minkel, former Fort Dodge schools superintendent, now an insurance man there, is known to many Algpnians, particularly members of the R'o- tary club here, which he was instrumental in founding; ' ""•'. Rehabilitation Chairman Named Sunday's Des .Moines Register- gave a list of Iowa county rural rehabolitarian chairmen under a state commission and listed C. R. LaBarre, Algona, for Kosuth. It was said that district meetings would be held for the chairmen, county relief workers, county relief engineers, and county agents. Mr. LaBarre, Algona, for Kossuth. It :ster's story was his first news of the appointment. statue carved sculptor. It is claimed that P. T. Barnum, the great showman, offered $150,000 for the exhibit and that six million people paid 50c to see it. On exhibition in Boston the gate receipts were $4000 a night for a time. It was the best-patronized exhibit at the Pan-American exposition. Finally the truth came out; It had been made of gypsum at or near Fort Dodge and had been "planted" in New York. Even that discovery failed to destroy the myth, and the Cardiff Giant has ever since been the subject of Sunday magazine stories at intervals. The giant has now started on its travels again after some 20-odd years of storage at Fort Dodge. Visitors see what looks like the body of a naked giant some ten feet long lying in a reclining position. The head is of noble proportions and the face pleasantly serene as if the giant had died in peace.
