An easy way to figure the reduction on a piece of property is to 'ind the taxable value and deduct $1.10 for each $1,000 of taxable valuation. For instance, property with a taxable valuation of $2,000 would have a net reduction of $2.20 from the last half of 1033 taxes to be paid next month. For taxes to be paid next year the reduction would be $4.40. County Cut is $11,18!!. The reduction applies to personal property taxes as well as real estate taxes, and the basis of computation is the same, $1.10 for a wildly thrown ball to first. They hold (.lie load till the fifth, when the oldtimcrs scored four runs. In the r,i"t.h the Oldlimers tallied two more scores. The Grays then brought their end nf thn score up to five points by ••roving three runs in the last half of the sixth. They had a chance to scorn'again in the last half of the eighth, when they had three men on bases and no outs, but Swanson, "i'chiiK for the Oldtimers, struck out the next batter, and a double •;hiy ended the inning.' The line-up for both teams follows: Grays Oldtimers Omar Kelly c Vinson Jr. Kelly P Swanson Wander _lb Scanlan Butler 2b-^ Watts Parents desiring to enter children in the Bnby Health contest at the county fair are advised that there is still time for ten more babies to be entered. The contest will bo conducted according to plans formerly followed. Call 57't or write to Mrs. George St. John, 207 Nebraska, Algonn, giving child's name and date of birth. Elimination of the state levy from the last half of this year's taxes will remove a county total of 541,483 which would otherwise have md to be collected for the state. The county reduction in next year's taxes will be $81,089. Burt Girls Lose to Algonians 18-7 The Algona girls' kittenball team defeated a girls' team from Burt Tuesday evening at Athletic park, 18-7.

In the last few months lively interest in flyable model airplanes has been developed in Kossuth, and every Sunday when the weather permits plane builders take their planes to nearby fields for flights. Some of the larger planes fly several hundred feet, and even the smallest stay in the air and circle to considerable height. One of the planes, owned by Dr. H. L. McCorkle, a week ago flew as high as the new water tower before the energy supplied by rubber bands failed. Planes Release Parachutes. On the larger planes there are small trap doors from which miniature bombs and small parachutes Jos. Harig, Victor Hertig, D. P. Smith, and others, including Jos. Bloom and his little German band, recruited from the Algona Military band. are released when the plane has reached the top of its flight. The contest is open to anyone in the county, and information can be obtained from Doctor McCorkle. Judging will be on the basis of time in air, and the ships will be launched by hand. Three "heats" are permitted to each entry, the best or longest time in the air to be the deciding time for that entry. Doing platform acts on the trip Tuesday were Dr. C. D.

Shown these figures yesterday, an Algon- ian remarked: .rt< v "This is an interesting commen- :ary on who wrecks banks. When a. sank goes broke the popular theory is the the bankers stole the money. In fact thievery by the bankers s rare. As shown by figures in this case, it is borrowers who will not! or cannot pay who as a rule wrecte. banks. Bankers Didn't Steal, "There is nothing in the records of any of the failed Algona banks to show that the bankers stole any money, but there is a sad showing of borrowers who used other people's money and have never paid it back. "You can accuse the bankers oft poor judgment in making loans. but even there, if you are fair, you have to allow for the psychology; of the times when the loans were- made, and ask yourself whether you would have done any better la the same circumstances." Five Dividends Pali. The County Savings Bank had deposits of $1,371,312.85 when it was closed October 29, 192T.
