PAGE FOUR KOSSUTH COUNTY ADVANCE, ALGONA, IOWA MOUNTAINEERS ARMED TO HEAR REV.MUHLENAN The Rev. W. G. Muhleman told TRotarians Monday about his recent tour in the south when he visited the backwoods people of the Kentucky mountains where feuds are common. The people there. Mr. Muhleman said, had never had a church, but now there is a "Henderson settlement" church at Linda, Kentucky, which Mr. Muhleman visited. The founder, named Henderson, was killed in a feud, but his two grandchildren attended services conducted by Mr. Muhleman. and also present were a man who had killed another, and a woman who had lost her husband in a feud. Everyone at the meeting was armed. Mr. Muhleman found the people backward and wholly uneducated. They were suspicious of him at first, but became friendly after he had been there a few days. He told of their hospitality. A conductor even stopped a train and backed it around a curve so Mr. Muhleman could take a picture of the scenery coining around a curve and going through a gorge. FOREST CITYANS LOSE SUNDAY GOLF TOURNEY T HIS PICTURE TAKEN ON the Harold Chandler farm in Davis county, is typical of damage done by chinch bugs. These bugs, measuring little more than an eighth of an inch, completely destroyed the corn at the right of the tar line in center by sapping the juice from the plants. The insects were stopped in 1<133 by the barrier and fell into post holes along the ridge where they were killed when Mr. Chandler poured in kerosene or crank case oil two or three times a day. A drawing of an enlarged chinch bug is shown. At The Call Theatre A Review of the Recent Talkies By T. H. C. Postoffice (Continued from page 1.)

John Seastrom's bid for the east corner lot across the street north from the horseshoe courts was $8,000. This lot is short of the required dimensions. Mrs. Jos. W. Wadsworth offered her corner across the street cast from the Dehnert hotel and north from the Advance shop at .$9250. This includes the buildings, consisting of her home, garage, etc. The ground dimensions are 88x132. One of the most attractive offers from the price standpoint was submitted by the Druggists Mutual Insurance Co. This covers the old Peck livery barn property on the corner south of the Kossuth County State bank building. The site is good and the price cheap— only $5500, buildings to be removed. The dimensions here can be arranged to suit. " Another Gnlbrnith Location. The I. G. Dewel estate submitted a bid of $10,000 for the four business lots where the Dewel garage and the Champlin gas station stand. Besides the four lots a private alley to the public alley which runs east and west next north of the Algona hotel building was included. The Galbraith estate submitted a bid of $5200 for the corner on east State street where the old Geo. L. Galbraith home stands. This is the corner where Minnesota street leads to the fair grounds and the louse has a corner tower or steeple. Henry E. Douglas offered for 56,000 the corner across the street east from the Norton lumberyard ind north of the Sorensen grocery. Guy M.

District Fest for Legion is Planned An eighth district Legionnaire summer meeting will be held Monday at Spring Lake, Green county, with the Greene county Legion posts as hosts. Entertainment will consist of a ball game between two Junior Legion teams at 3 o'clock; picnic supper at 6 o'clock; each family to bring its own eats. There will be free drinks and ice cream, also free boating and a free dance at 9 p. m. The business meeting begins at 7:30. There will be election of officers and other business. There is thus a substantial reduction in Kossuth, a fact which shows that the work has been handled in an efficient manner. The cost of the program will be paid in proportion to cash benefits received by the cooperating farmers. Up to date the cost is just a little in excess of 1% per cent. Program Shows Cooperation. This whole program has clearly shown that farmers can cooperate, and the fact should encourage farmers to obtain benefits by cooperative efforts, according to G. A. Bonnstetter, secretary of the association. "We now hope that farmers will start thinking about a future program.' There is no reason why Kossuth cannot contribute basic information for a program. We have on file at the corn-hog office accurate information which can be used to the farmers' advantage if they choose to further cooperate." This county had the last school of instruction scheduled in Iowa, and the committee has demonstrated its ability by having its contracts accepted as the 52nd county in Iowa to complete the work, though it had twice the area of many counties which have not yet secured approval. Work of Committee Commended. Leslie M. Carl, state argicultural statistician, says: "Kossuth county has been the only county thus far to send a transmittal sheet to the State Board of Review that was without errors." In a program as large as this between Hall and Thorington had agreed to pave that block. Two retired farmers, H. P. Larson and Chris Byson, got up the agreement.
