Shore garage and automobile at his homo a block west of the main gate to the county fair grounds. A short in wires of the automobile is believed to have been the cause. The upholstering of the car was completely burned. Neighbors discovered the blaze when they saw smoke coining from the garage. They tried to push the car, a 1934 Ford V-8, out, but were unsuccessful. The fire had gained such headway before the firemen arrived that water from the hydrant was necessary to get it under control, the contents of the tank on the fire truck being not enough. The fire was then confined to the garage, which was a total loss. The tires of the automobile were burned but the gasoline tank failed to explode. Mr. Shore is a railway mail clerk, and he was not at home at the time. The automobile had not been out of the garage since early in the week. Courthouse Janitor Clmnge. After having held the job two years James Watts will retire Thursday as courthouse janitor and will be succeeded by Archie Halnes. Mr. Watts is already janitor of the new postoffice building, and that job, it is understood, pays $25 a month better than the courthouse job. Kpizootie Kills a Mule.

ALGONA'S NEW POSTOFFICE The Iowa Conservation Commission has put into circulation 5,000 cards to inform sportsmen cncern ing state hunting and trapping laws enacted by the legislature last winter. The commission formerly fixed regulations but an opinion handed down by the state supreme court held that the legislature coulc not delegate such power but must itself prescribe all but administra- tve rules. Conservation officials may, how ever, make changes in the areas when conditions for open seasons make such action necessary. Noi much in the way of area changes is anticipated. Pheasant huntipg will be allowed this fall in 41 north Iowa counties, including Kossuth and surrounding territory.

Tickets The Junior Chamber of Commerce, as one of its fall projects, undertook the sale of high school football season tickets to businessmen and in a campaign of two or three days before Friday's game sold more than 250 for the high school. An extra drive for ticket sales this year Was nesessitat- ed by the erection of new bleachers at the field.

"I was even more surprised," said Mr. Huenhold, "to find three packages of cigarettes neatly strung on long wires, hidden in the bouquet. The joke was on me, because I don't smoke cigarettes. I got rid of them, though. I put the bouquet in the large dining room, and in four or five days, all of the cigarettes were gone. (And it was against the rules to smoke in the dining room!) When the flowers were wilted, I didn't know what to do with the basket, so I gave it to a barber on the boat. Of course, I would take a basket from a lady, but I would not give one-to a lady—no. no. Meets an Algouian! "On July 1,1 met Alice Kain, Algona, who was also on her way to Eufope. I got both Algona papers every, week, so I kept up with the news at home." Mr. Huenhold didn't lose any weight on the trip. He ate six timis a day!-«arly breakfast at 7 a. m.; lunch at 9; another break' fast at noon; coffee and lunch at dinner at six (sometimes 3 p. m.; . . 12 courses!) and tea at ,10 ^ "The food- was good, better any I have eaten in the U. S.," said Mr. Huenhold. Believe it or not, Mr. Huenhold has never been seasick, and he has been across the ocean seven times! He came to America in 1894, went back in 1925, to Holland, Belgium, and Germany; and again in 1931 to visit Switzerland and Italy; and this time to visit his childhood home in the Harz mountains, North Germany. Visits the Old Home. On the morning of July 6, the Norddeutscher-Lloyd Bremen landed at Bremen Harbor, Germany. Before going farther, Mr. Huenhold had to have hia baggage turned "inside out" at the customs house. If any passenger leaves the country with more money than he took in, it is taken away from him. Two marks and 50 pennies could be had in exchange for one American dollar. "It is wiser'" said Mr. Huenhold, "to use registered mark checks, for a one-dollar bill can be exchanged for four martaj in German money." Mr. Huenhold enjoyed Germany greatly. Besides sightseeing, he enjoyed a visit with a brother, two sisters, other relatives and friends, at Osterode, Germany, his childhood home. He also visited his college town, Goettingen,, Germany, where he attended a university for seven years before he came to America. No Sitdowns in Germany. "There are no sit down strikes in Germany," says Mr. Huenhold. "The country is short on help, and if an American wants work there and is willing to work, he can get plenty. The country looks fine, and the people show great hospitality." Mr. Huenhold attended services on Sundays at the Cologne Cathedral, on the Rhine, which has a seating capacity of 30,000. A winding trip up the Brocken mountain was a "hair-breadth" ride for Mr. Huenhold, his sister, a nephew, and the laser's chauffeur. A hotel is situated 3200 feet up the mountain, and it can accommodate hundreds of people. The sun is UP there at 3:30 a. m. and goes down after 8 p. m., in summer. There were huge boulders on , (Continued on page 10.) T T<? AirnwA'C! v.on^o^™^ T, . , , , .
