Long's Food Shop EX-ALGONIANS ON THE COAST WED J4 YEARS D. B. Averys, Who Once Lived Here, Celebrate. From Seattle, Wash., via Mrs. R. C. Glass, herself a former Al- (gonian, comes news that Mr. and Mrs. D. B. Avery, once of Algona, now of Kent, Wash., recently celebrated their 64th wedding anniversary at the home of their granddaughter, Mrs. William Von Lochaw, Seattle. Their five children, four grandchildren, and three great-grandchildren were in attendance. Mr. Avey, who was a Civil war veteran, once had a harness shop here. Some 40 years ago Mr. and Mrs. Avey moved to Washington, their daughter, Mrs. Addle Austin, going with them. H. E. Rist well remembers Mr. Avey. In the war the latter served in the Seventh Illinois cavalry. Mr. Avey was once superintendent of the Methodist Sunday school here. Mrs. Glass writes that she left Algona more than 50 years ago, but has never forgotten "the beautiful, cultural city." She was born and reared in Iowa, but went to Washington in 1899. "I do not love Iowa less, but Washington more." She recalls Iowa snowdrifts over fence-tops, Hodgepodge Webster—A steiv of yarlons ingredients} a inixtnre. A car carrying on the rear a state-known Insurance emblem urging .safety, speeded at 45 miles an hour through the 35-mlle-nn- hour speed zone at Sexton Saturday afternoon. In the unrestricted area between Sexton and Algona the same car hit a 70-inile- an-hour clip. The driver of the car licensed in DCS Moines should get out and take a look at the safety propaganda. It seems foolish Lo the follow behind. * * * * l\'hj' are not more "hit" radio programs rebroadcast at late hours? Here's an idea for smaller radio stations that might pay dividends. Many people would like to listen to favorite programs, but because of some interference in plans cannot do so. If these programs were rebroadcast the audience would be large and appreciative. » * * * 'IVo men died Monday morning. One was 29 years old and the other 21 years old. They died because a rope was around each neck and the scene was the state prison In Iowa. Both were murderers. graves. They are now in Maybe because of their their deaths someone else can live— someone they might .have murdered had they been released. Prison is fine if dangerous characters can be kept there for life, but too often it is only for a few years. A major * * * * difference between country people and town people is the ability of the latter to "meet „,„. ..v,...,., „„!,.,, „„„ says strangers. Country people are nothing like it happens in Wash- ft i 0 ne on their farms and only sel- ington, whose climate, with no extremes of heat or cold, she has found ideal, in spite of rainy winters. Her address is 2017 34th st, South Seattle. Seeks Nomination for Gilchrist Job One H. Lloyd Eveland, Boone county farmer, has announced candidacy for the democratic nomination for congress in this the Eighth Iowa district. There is at present no other democratic aspirant. In case the state and district higher ups have been, or are, contemplating a machine candidate, Mr. Eveland's candidacy is believed unwelcome. Eveland is a Bureau man and has been a federal corn loan supervisor. It is understood that Congressman Gilchrist, who has usually been cars- ful not to flout New Deal proposals, will bo the only republican candidate for renomination and reelection. Fort Dodgers Seek New Radio Station A year ago the KGLO radio station was opened at Mason City, and it is heard clearly in Algona. Now comes news that a similar station is planned at Fort Dodge, which is a dozen miles or so nearer than Mason City to Algona. Fort Dodge promoters are selling dom are called upon to meet and talk with a stranger. Town people have such contacts daily, and hence overcome shyness and are able to talk. Most farmers are more interesting talkers when once "thawed' out than town people, because (farmers are closer to nature and elemental things. Town people talk too much about bridge, the weather, Mrs. Who-sis's social errors, the frothy decorative things. # * * * One of the prettier State street salespersons sat down with a couple of "umpfs" on an icy crossing Monday morning. Her dignity was badly crippled for a few minutes, and the ifunny looking hat was a scream. Few saw it, for which she can bo thankful. * * * * Wholesale announcement last week by county democratic officers for renomination next June started the political season, which will last for the coming four month.i Early announcements give an advantage that must be overcome by hard work later on. A few contenders for some of the jobs are out in the democratic camp, but little has been heard from the republicans.

Opens a Dcnhart Store. The Corwrth Hustler reports that Arthur Carman, "of near Algona," has opened a general store at Denhart. "He was recently married to Neva Gull Wieland, of Britt, and is a brother of "Sil' ( Garman, who operates a like store at Stilson." Denhart is a hamlet on the M. & St. L. between Corwith and Kanawha.

Ho had an operation at an Algona hospital some five weeks ago, and was brought home last week. Funeral services will be held Friday at 2 o'clock at the Methodist church. Mrs. Hanson and seven children survive. they see the whites of the eyes on the theory that giving the calf enough rope will permit it to hang itself. * * * * The Episcopal dean at Memphis, sought to. prove im- Ledyarders En.ioviiif* California.
