FURTHER FACTS ON MRS, HORAN DEATH Mrs. A. J. Keen has supplied a few additional facts concerning her sister, Mrs. W. H. Horan, whose death in California was briefly reported in Thursday's Upper Des Moines. Mrs. Horan had been living with Mrs. A. L. Belton, also a former Algonian. On March 14 she suffered a severe chill, and a doctor found that she had pleurisy. Next morning lobar pneumonia developed and she was taken to her son Karel's. The crisis arrived last week Monday, and she died next day. The Horans moved to California in June, 1933, after having sold an electrical shop here to the Pratt Electric Co. For a time they operated a small chicken-ranch. Mr. Sbran died January 4, 1935. Mr. and Mrs. Horan were married August 22, 1892, at Monroe, W'~ , and came at once io Algona. Mrs. Horan was a graduate of he Wayland preparatory school at Beaver Dam, Wis. She was a mem- )er of the Baptist church and the Royal Neighbors here. The sons Clemmer and Karel mve five children. Two sisters in Wisconsin are Mrs. J. H. Durst and Mrs. 0. H. Atherton, both of Monroe.

Intoxication fares ill when it meets up with the law in Algona. In the last five days, four cases, have come up in the courts, and'i sentence has been swiftly pro-; nounced. i The heaviest sentence went to: Ralph Steinman Monday, when he; pleaded guilty to operating a mo- 1 tor vehicle while intoxicated Sun-i day. Judge F. C. Davidson, sitting! on the first day of the March term, j fined Steinman ?300 and costs. But. if he pays ?50 and costs by Sep-l tember 1, and another $50 by Janu-j ary 1, 1940, the balance of the sentence is suspended. ' Steinman's driver's license waa suspended for a year. Bond appeal was set at $500, and the defendant was paroled to Sheriff Loss. Wade M. Coon was sentenced in Justice Danson's court Monday for intoxication on the streets Saturday. He was given 30 days in jail, but sentence was suspended upon good behavior, on recommendation of Sheriff Loss, because Coon has a job. -He was given till 2 ,p. m. April 3 to pay costs of $2.50. "Bill" Burden, professional col-1 ored boxer from Mason City, was haled into Justice Danson's court Thursday on a charge of intoxication. James McGuire, Fort Dodge I taxi driver, made complaint, when i Burden_couldn't pay taxi fare from | Fort Dodge to Algona, and Burden was fined $100 and costs. It was said that if Burden paid $5 of the fine $7 taxi fare, and $.55 costs, the rest of the sentence would be suspended. Since, however, he had no money, he was given 30 days in jail.
