The Dan'Long estate filed a charge of larceny against Dan Long Jr., when the young man took wood from the farm in Cresco township. The charge was dismissed on promise of Dan Jr. to leave the wood alone. A charge of assault and battery against Mp.lt/Boyer brought by his brother Andrew J. Boyer was also dismissed, after bond to keeping the peace was filed. The brothers are from Bancroft, and a fight last Wednesday resulted from an argument. Another brother and Mrs. Anna Boyer were subpeoned, but the case was dismissed before they testified. Business in Justice Delia Welter's court has now been at standstill nearly four weeks. Mayor C.

WINTER YIELDS TO MARCH THAW A week of thawing temperatures has broken the grip of Old Man Winter, and it is believed that spring is at last approaching, if not here in fact. Officially spring begins next week Wednesday, but a warm sun and a kindly wind have caused the thick mantle of ice and snow to thaw till now only a little remains in sheltered places.; 1 Yesterday was the warmest day of the season, with the mercury creeping close to the 50 degree mark on many thermometers. The streets are now comparatively free of Ice and snow, and ice covers the sidewalks only where water has been running in the daytime and freezes again when the sun goes 'down at night. River ig Rising. The week of thawing has caused the river to rise, and it was expected to go out of its banks last night. It was already overflowing in some lowlands.

The record for the month to date follows: March 1 29 H, S, DEBATERS STAGE CONTEST FOR KIWANIANS \ Debate Whether This Country Should be British Ally. The high school debating team, Ruby Turner, Mary Cruikshank, Edgar Schtniel, and Russell Buchanan, gave the program at Thursday's meeting of the Kiwanis club. Dr. M. G. Bourne was chairman, and Mr. Attleson, debate teacher, introduced the pupils. An abbreviated debate on whether the United States should form an alliance with Great Britian was presented. This is the state subject for high school debating teams taking part in contests preceding a state contest. The state contest will be held at Iowa City March 30, and the Algona team will be one of three from this district competing. There are four districts in the state. Schmiel Defends Negative. The affirmative was presented by Edgar Schmiel in a constructive speech. He took the stand that the Fascist dictators are aggressive in Europe and that if their aggression is allowed to continue unchecked it will eventually theaten the United States economically and socially. Ruby Turner, on the negative, said that the United States is sufficiently powerful in itself geographically, economically, and financially to defeat the dictators and so can have no justifiable fear that aggression in Europe presents a threat to this country. Mary Cruikshank also reviewed the case for the negative, and declared that the United' States- possesses such sufficiency of raw and industrial materials that it would not need them from any other nation in time of war and therefore requires no alliance. Buchanan In RebnttaL Russell Buchanan, in rebuttal, declared that though the Fascist MONLUX AND LEFFERT REELECTED TO DOARD WEST BENDERS WELCOME HOME 'CHAMP' GIRLS D. L. Leffert and Mrs. D. D. Monlux were reelected school directors, and C. R. La Barre was reelected treasurer, all by a slightly smaller vote than turned out last year.

Part of the west side wall is all that remained. Because of the heavy fog Friday it was impossible to see the flames or the smoke from the highway, which is about a half mile from the place. This is a 160-acre farm, and the Thuls carried $3500 insurance, There was a small roof fire at the Thul home some two weeks ago, but it was put out without damage. There are three sous in the Thul family. All that the Thuls had left in the way of clothes waa poor health for some time, father was an Algona Civil veteran. Many years ago the family moved to Algona, after living in the country. They had the house now owned by the W. J. Paynes. The elder Mr. Evans worked as blacksmith for at least 25 years in the Frank Nicoulin dray shop. Mr. and Mrs Evans are dead. •Lester was single.
