The entire personnel of the rodeo attended, and with a hundred or more Algonians also in attendance the store was filled to capacity. The couple had been brought to town from the fair grounds escorted by automobiles to the tune of honks and cowbells. The cere- reated the group to drinks at the James fountain.

Galbraith estate, E. J. Hough, administrator, submitted a bid of $5450 on the corner across the street west from the Kohlhaas garage block. This is the site of the horseshoe court and two old frame business buildings fronting east. There are four lots here 22 by 132. 'The C. E. Heise estate submitted a bid of $1750 on one business lot next south of the Galbraith site. This is the vacant lot next north of the E. J. Hodges or old Algona Republican building. Mr. Hodges submitted a bid of $2500 on his business lot, and Dr. A. L. Rist, present owner, submitted a like bid on the lot where the old Lacy laundry stands. It is understood that combinations can be worked out from these bids to get the dimensions the government wants. It was reported yesterday that a petition favoring location in this quarter block was in circulation. Two Greenberg Bids. Jos. Greenberg, who owns the lots across the street north from the Kohlhaas garage block, submitted two bids. He will deed the corner east 140 feet and north 80 feet or he will deed a south frontage 85 feet from the corner by 132 feet deep. The bids were for $10,000 and $9,000 respectively. H. A. Bates filed a bid of $6,000 for the corner where the old Nicoulin dray works stands, and J. E. Moulds offered the corner next north, east of the old Frank Nicoulin home, which he owns, and across the street south from the In general reports on subsistence gardens in the county made July 5-6 are satisfactory, considering the drought early in the season, according to Ida E. Larson, Swea City, county chairman. Many- seeds planted early did not come up, and many gardens were replanted after June 6, when rainfall was recorded throughout the county. There are 386 gardens in the county, and every community is represented, with a local chairman under the direction of Mrs. Larson, who in turn works under S. W. Edgecombc, state chairman, at Des Moines. Prof. M. Lants, Ames, has made two trips to the county, and has inspected some of the gardens. Reports are made each month to the state chairman. The Algona chairman is Mrs. E. R. Morrison. This project is sponsored by DEMOS NAME CLYDE COY IE FOR JUDGE Clyde Coyle, Humboldt attorney, son of former Judge D. F. Coyle, also of Humboldt, was nominated for judge by the 14th district democratic judicial convention at Emmetsburg Monday. There was no opposition, and the vote was unan- nous. It will be remembered that Judge Coyle served several terms on the local bench as a republican. He resigned from the bench during the closing year of Governor Hammill's term, and F. C. Lovrien, of Humboldt, was named to fill out his term. Some months after leaving the bench Judge Coyle startled members of both parties with announcement of a change in politics. Beginning with last week Tuesday, the entire midwest has in the last week sweltered in one of the warmest periods of summer weather ever known. The sun has risen every morning in a cloudless sky and shone fiercely all day. By mid- afternoon the heat has been all but unbearable and sleep at night impossible till after midnight. The daily papers have featured heat stories, and many deaths have been attributed to the extremely warm weather. Temperatures elsewhere up to 120 have been reported, and nearly everywhere in Iowa the weather has been warmer than it has been here, at most reported points three to ten degrees higher. The official figures here seem low in comparison with records reported elsewhere. This may be because luxurious vegetation here has helped to keep temperatures down. In other sections drought is general, and in many sections crops have been damaged beyond repair. Visitors here from elsewhere consider northern Iowa a paradise in comparison. Corn Price Moves Up. In sympathy with reports of Ueliero it or not, the sky may be clear above, but it rains under the city water tower just the same. The reason is that the cold tank acts like your water pitcher when it is full of cold water. It "sweats," and the water drips off like rain. The appearance is that the tank is leaking, but that is not true. Of course atmospheric conditions must be just right for the drip, but when such a condition exists the new shrubbery underneath the water tower is watered at no cost to the city. Under Water Tank! PAVING SOUTH ON 169 TO BE LET IN AUGUST Four Mile Piece to Be Put in with PWA Funds. The federal appropriation for relief purposes to be spent on public works in Iowa has been apportioned, and Kossuth county will benefit to the extent of four miles of paving south on No. 169 from Algona.

The Smiths had just turned onto No. 18 from the curve, and the car they were about to pass was more than a block from the intersection Evidently the car in the rear was speeding and had not slowed down for the main intersection, since the Smiths noticed no car behind when they came onto No. 18. The car which struck theirs ran into the ditch and through twc fences into a cornfield after hit ing them. No one was hurt. The ca bore licenses from Ottumwa, am the driver was taken before Juntic White and fined $25 for veckles driving. The damage to each ca was close to $100.

BANCROFT NINE PLAYS FOR CHAMPW TODAY Bancroft, July 24—The Bancroft Legion baseball team defeated the Hartley team, 8-5, this afternoon in he first of a three-game series to etermine the champions of the ombined 8th and 9th districts. The vinner will compete in a state ourney. Bancroft now needs but >ne win in two games to go. The Bancroft team defeated Ren- vick last Thursday for the eighth district championship. In the game oday Moulton and Menke were the Bancroft battery, and Guerdes, Tuck, and Peterson were the bat- ery for Hartley. Glen Cage is manager of the Bancroft team. Bancroft stores were closed this afternoon, and a large crowd vatched the game. The next game will be played at Hartley this week Thursday, and f Bancroft wins the. team will go to the state meet at Rockwell City August 1. great damage to crops, the price of corn has shot up, and it now looks as if corn would command an oldtime price next winter. A countrywide crop of only some two billions of bushels is estimated, whereas in late years it has run close to three billions. Some farmers are already shelling sealed corn and paying off loans. Many, however, are holding for higher prices. The government has extended the time for payment of loans from August 1 to September 1. Business in the last week has been quiet because of the intense heat. Everybody who could do so with cur- has remained within doors doors and windows shut and tains drawn. Many a basement has served as a refuge for overheated humans. Fans have been worked overtime, but in the afternoons and early evenings they have been of little use. Crops Here Saved. LIQUOR STORE PROFIT HERE $304 MONTHLY Sales Estimated to Average $3100 Per Month. A published statement by the state liquor control commission gives the local store an estimated net profit of $304 a month. The statement was compiled as of July 17, but the Algona store had been operating only 13 days at that time. It is estimated that the average monthly sales will be $3100, with liquor costs totaling $2036. This would leave a gross profit of $1064, but from this is to be taken the expense of store operation, including salaries, rental, etc., $760 a month, which leaves the net profit at $304 monthly or $3648 annually. Nine Stores Lose Money. Nine of the 27 stores are estimated as having had losses so far, as follows: Carroll, $22; Decorah, $35; Manchester, $333; Keokuk, $435; Fort Madison, $272; Burlington, $88; Muscatlne, $151; Clinton, $392; and Dubuque, $356. Sales at Spencer were estimated at $6,000, with a net profit of ?P02; at Mason City $8050, $1027 profit; Fort Dodge $9700, $1367 profit. Des Moines leads with an estimated total sales of $43,000, costs of $28,355, expenses of $6359, and a net profit of $8286. The estimated monthly sales for the 27 stores operating on the date the compilation was made was The heat has been even worse for livestock than for humans, and many horses and cattle have died. There lias been general resort to tractors by farmers who feared loss of horses if worked, in the fields. All domestic animals have sought shade. Although crops outside the north Iowa and southern Minnesota corn belt have been greatly damaged or utterly ruined, there has been no recent damage here, the rains prior to a week ago were a godsend to this section. A fair oats crop is being harvested, and there Heat (Continued on page 8.) Chick is Hatched Out by Warm Sun Tuesday evening eight boy scouts, with Scoutmaster P. A. Danson had a swim at the muncipal swimming pool, and thence went to the Ambrose A. Call state park for a picnic lunch. There they found a newly hatched chick in the middle of the road leading north from the Shelter House. It is possible that the chick was hatched by the hot sun of the past week from an egg left there, but it may have come from a nearby farm, though is seemed too young to have wandered so far. The chick was given to Custodian Paul Wille, who will let it grow up in the j)ark. Burglar is Caught in Act: West Bend Fenton, July 24—Arthur Jensen, of Jensen & Rolfson here, caught a burglar in the Jensen & Bolstad store at West Bend a week ago. The store here gets supplies from the one at West Bend and it was at this time, when Mr. Jensen went to the store for supplies at midnight, when the invader, Henry Monarch, was caught and taken to Eminets- burg for trial. Patterson Speaks Tomorrow. Rake will have its annual summer celebration tomorrow, and Geo, W Patterson will speak at noon. Rake is a village of 250 inhabitants in the nortnwesternmost township of Winnebago county, northeast of Lakota and directly north of Buffalo Center. Buys 26,000 Bu. of Corn. Lu Verne, July 24-The Kunz Grain Co. bought 25,000 bu. of corn Titonkian Suffers Accident in Dive Titonka, July 24—Arlo, son of Mr. and Mrs. L. B. Larson, of Titonka, suffered two cracked vertebrae in his neck in a dive into a gravel pit north of town Friday evening. He was with a group, and with others was diving with arms at side. In this dive the hands and arms help break the water for the head and shoulders. His head did not enter the water in the right way, however, and though he was not knocked out he was taken to Woden, where the cracks were discovered. .Thence he was taken to a Forest City hospital, where bis neck was placed in a cast, after which be was taken home. He will have to wear the cast four to six weeks. $183,050 at a liquor cost of $120,815, running expenses of $40,500, and a net profit of $21,695. This would indicate that the commission uses a mark up of 50 per cent above the cost of the liquor to the state, or at a gross profit of 33 per cent, a net profit being a little less than 12 per cent. River Town Profits Low. It is peculiar that estimated sales along the so-called wet river cities with large populations are much less than in Algona. Keokuk, Fort Madison, Muscatine, Clinton, and Dubuque, with populations running from 15,000 to 41,000, show average monthly sales so far less than $2,500. Competition from Illinois is held responsible. At Davenport, with 60,000 people, the sales are estimated at $6,750 a month, but with a net profit of only $527. On the Missouri river next to Nebraska, Council Bluffs has estimated monthly sales ol $17,000 and Sioux CiTy $19,000, with net profits of $2,966 and $3386 respectively. spring's paving ended at the fair grounds corner. The project is scheduled to come up for contract in an August letting, but this may be delayed till September. It will take a couple of weeks to get the road into condition after the contractor starts work, and even if the contract is not let till September there will be ample time to complete the work before cold weather begins. Tfo Worth End Paving. Algona was visited in April by 0. J. Ditto, member of the state highway commission, and he inspected the road at that time. He met with the board of supervisors and officers of the Algona Community club. The question of paving north from the junction of No. 9 and No. 169 was broached at the meeting with the supervisors, but Mr. Ditto explained that such a project could not be completed at this time or in near future. >Vhy South End Preferred. There are a number of reasons why the south project is favored over the north, the main reason being that the south road would serve more lowans than the north. No. 169 is a feeder to No. 18 for Clear Lake and the Okobojis from the south and is also a main highway towards Des Moines. More people go south towards Des Moines on No. 169 than north towards the Twin Cities; also the percentage of lowans is much greater. The commission is also hampered by PWA regulations in regard to distribution of the fund. Allotments are divided on the following basis within the county: One fourth for secondary roads, one fourth for state roads within cities (under which Algona streets ,were paved from last year's appropriation), and the rest on the state road system. This is T/abor Project. The PWA also requires that the money be divided up among counties. Harley Fitch, 21, son of Mr. and' Mrs. D. E. Fitch, Portland township, northeast of Burt, was fatally/ injured Saturday morning, whej£ his model T Ford coupe crashed* into a gravel truck driven by Ernest Sheetz, Britt. Harley suffered; a fractured skull and other head' injuries, besides numerous body injuries, and he died an hour after: the accident happened without hav-- ing regained consciousness. The youth was traveling east at;: a point four miles east of Burt,, Road building has been found the .uickest way to put the unemploy- id to work. Local labor will be given the preference, but must vork under PWA regulations. It s expected that this four-mile pro- ect will provide several weeks' vork for a large number of Kos- mth laborers.

The cars met. at an intersection on the northeast and southwest corners of whichis are groves which obstruct thtt view. On the other two corners^ high weeds prevent sight of approaching cars. Didn't See Truck. It is believed that Harlpy did not" see the gravel truck till he was: upon it, and Sheets was almost oni. the intersection before he saw the. Fitch car. The coupe struck the- truck at the door just ahead of the: gravel body and was demolished in. the impact against the heavy load 1 of gravel. Harley was thrown, clear of the wreck. Doctor W. T.

In honor of Harley's coming of age his mother served a surprise.' birthday supper last week Wednesday, and it was at that time that the Ford coupe was presented to>> him. Harley was born In Portland: township and lived there all his.- life, except six years when he attended a Sterling, 111., high school- and business college and lived with his grandparents, Mr. and Mrs* George D.
