This is the first time that the medical society has advertised, and the campaign is unique in both the medical and newspaper circles. The step was taken by the Kossuth Society as a group after a meeting of the doctors voted unanimously to adopt the plan. It is entirely within the ethics of the profession, and is supported by the entire group. There are 14 M. D.'s in the county society as follows: M. G. 1 Bourne, C. H. Cretzmeyer, R. M. Wallace, J. N. Kenefick, P. V. Janse and R. A. Evans, Algona; T. J. Egan, Bancroft; J. G. Clapsaddle, Bur't; J. A. Mueller, Fenton; R. L. Williams, Lakota; R. L. Corbin, Lu Verne; R. M. Minkel, Swea i City; W. F. Hamstreet, Titonka; and J. W. McCreery, Whittemore. The Society is also placing a similar series of advertisments in the newspapers in towns which have M.' D.'s as members. Mrs. Albertina Thiel was instantly killed Saturday evening about 5:45 when she was struck by a Northwestern freight train at the road ^crossing the railroad tracks between the Third ward school and the ice cream factory. Mrs. Thiel was struck by the front of the engine, and knocked some 20 to 30 feet from the point here she was struck. The body was thrown to the west away from the track, and the train wheels did not pass over her. Warning Whistles Unheeded. Engineer IT. Bissell, of Eagle Grove, saw the woman as the trail came down the track after th< train passed over the bridge ov er the Milwaukee track intersec tion. He blew the engine whistle and expected her to get across th< track in time. For some reason, however, sh seemed to stop, on the track, an the engineer sounded long blast of the engine whistle to get he to move. When Bissell saw tha she either didn't hear the train o pay any attention, he set the brak os, but-it was too-late-to'avoid hil ting the woman. However the trai was moving so slowly that it wa stopped in .four box-car lengths. Coroner R. A. Evans was called and yesterday announced that n nquest would be held, as neithe the family nor the railroad- com pany requested one following a investigation. Twice Married. Mrs. Thiel was born Albertin Masow, in Germany September 1 1857. When she was a young gir her parents brought her to th: country and settled in Chicago. (Mrs. Thiel was married twice, the first time to William Peters. The date of his death is not known. Two of the eight children born survive, Charles Peters, and Mrs. L. J. Maleug, Algona. On August 7, 1892, Mrs. Peters married Ernest W. Thiel in Chicago. Later they moved to Garner, where they lived for six or seven months. In 1897 they moved to Algona, where they continued to live, with the exception of a year spent in California. One child was born, Ernest, who lives in Algona. Four- Confirmation Planned. Confirmation of nine children will take place Sunday, which will be Palm Sunday, at Trinity Lutheran church. The services, wil begin at 10 a. m., with Rev. P. J Braner, pastor, officiating.

Monlux easily in yesterday's city election, polling 1033 votes to 468 for Specht and 310 for Monlux. Councilman Prank Kohlhaas came out with a 7-vote lead to defeat George Miller 232-225 in the Third ward. L,. S. Bohannon, with 989, and Alwin Huenhold, with 910, won for the two places as councilmen-at-large from W. A. White, who had 859. Misbach Plurality Surprise. The size of Mislbach's' vote was a surprise, for though yeste- day it was generally conceded that he would win, it was expected the vote would be closer. He had a majority over both the other candidates of 255, and a plurality over Specht, the closest contender, of 565, or nearly two to one.

E. Morrow, republcian, of Hopkinton, a Methodist minister. It would have allowed counties to vote on whether beer should be sold within their borders. After debating this and other proposed amendments the House passed the new beer bill by a vote of 88-16. The bill still has to run the gauntlet of the Senate and be submitted to the governor. Beer Permits limited. If the new bill becomes law it will compel three Algona places of business where beer is sold to quit. The bill provides for only nine Class B permits in towns of 35004000 population, and Algona now has 12 suci. places. Algona's population probably now exceeds 4,000, but this is unofficial. According to the last census the population was 3985, A town between 4,000 and 4,500 population could issue ten permits; 11 between 4,500 and 5,000. The bill sets two permits as the limit for towns under 400 population; three between 400 and 1,000. None in Residence Districts. Class B permit licenses are raised from $100 to |150.
