TOO GOLD AND WET DOWN ON THE GULF Former Kossuth folks at various points in the South are complaining about chill weather. Mrs. Isabel Meiggs has three married nieces at Jacksonville, Fla., daughters of T. G. Fox, who for many years operated the Kunz elevator at Hanna, and they have complained in letters about cold winds. From Louisiana Mrs. Meiggs' brother, Adrain Tiss, wrote last week that it was keeping him busv to cut firewood, and Kate Skinner, who, with her mother, recently went to San Antonio, Tex., for a month with F. D. Seeleys, has complained of rainy and contrary weather. This complaint has. also been voiced by the H. R. Smiths, who at last accounts were contemplating a trip to some'point farther south. Mr. Smith said the he and Albert Ogren had been unable to play I olf because there was too much' rain. The weather along the Gulf coast seems to be a" reflection of our early winter weather in the CUSTODIAN FOR JOS, STUFLICK MINORS NAMED Mother Adjudged Not Fit and Daughter Appointed. Custody of the -five minor children of Jos. Stuflick, Fort Dodge who was killed by Leslie Alexander in a brawl two months ago, has been awarded to Mr. and Mrs. Edw Vaughn by the Webster couutv district court, according to The i'ort Dodge Messenger. Mrs. Vaughn is herself a daughter of Stuflick. Her mother lives at Fort Dodge, hut the court; held that the mother was not a fit per- vey Wadsworth; Lucinna May, who died in 1919 at Seattle, Wash.; James A., Birmingham, Ala.; and Margaret Hofmaster, Algona. Mrs. Margaret Bushnell died early, leaving four small children, and Janet assumed responsibility for rearing them. Later she married Mr. Bushnell. Their married life, however, was short-lived, for Mr. Bushnell died a short time later. At the time he was deputy county auditor. Marriage to J. W. Wadsworth, a childhood sweetheart and a pioneer banker in Kossuth county, took place some years later, and they lived happily together till Mr. Wadsworth's death. 70 Years In Saine House. Mrs. Wadsworth lived in the same home for a period of 70 years. The house stands on the corner across the street north from the Advance shop and is now tenanted by the A. A. Sterlings.

West Bend, Dec. 20 — Vernon Maxwell and Henry Montag drove to Emmetsburg Thursday and with Chris Bonnstetter, Rodman, furnished a $5,000 bond for Ray Hoskins, who was held in jail there, after having been brought back from Oregon early in the week to face charges of embezzlement as cashier of a Rodman bank which, closed 11 years ago. Maxwell and Montag are uncles of Hoskins, and Mr. Bonnstetter is his father-in- law. On release Hoskins joined his family here. His wife has for many years been a McFarland store, clerk and has supported a .eon, now 13, and a daughter, now 17. Throughout her husband's absence she never heard from her husband, who says that he wrote her dozens of letters but never dared mail any. son to have charge of the younger children. Some idea of Mrs. Stuf- lick s character may he obtained from the ,lowing mju.Ion in the Messenger of last week Monday- Mrs. Lucille Stufli:k, widow of Joe Stuflick, who wasiilled in a drunken brawl some months ago, and for whose death Leslie Alexander was found guilty of manslaughter last week, was found lying in the street by patrolmen late Saturday night in an intoxicated condition. She refused to get up when officers attampt- ed to help her, and, after being carried struggling to the squad car, attempted to kick the windows of the car O ui, police said. She had to be carried into the police station, fighting all the way until she was placed in jail. Appearing in police court this morning, she received a fine of $25 or 8 days in jail. Referring to the hearing in court over the custody of the minor children, the Messenger said: "The children, LeRoy, Juuadell, Robert, Duane and Hedrick, all of whom are under 18 years of age were brought into court for the custody hearing on the complaint of George R. D. Kramer, local juvenile pobation officer 1 . "If otherwise unprovided for by relatives of Mrs. Stuflick, the children can receive a maximum of $12.50 each per month from Webster county to be administered for their welfare by the Vaughns, the court order specifies. "Judge 0. J. Henderson of Webster City ruled in this case, and Country Attorney Robert Knudson appeared for the state," Mail Currier Laid Up. Stanley Johnson, city mail carrier for northeast Algona, has of late been confined to peoHwith heart trouble, and it will be necessary for him to remain abed for another three weeks, Bernard Dahlhauser is his substitute. s e :ol ,oo r
