She had lived there nine years with-her aunt, Mrs. Budlong's sister,. Mrs. William Parker, and the latter's husband. Mr. and Mrs. Budlong left for California last week Monday rafter receiving word that Marguerite was not well. When they arrived Friday, she was better. No details have as yet been learned about the immediat^ cause of death, but presumably "It grew out of the accident of ten years ago. Accident at Play.

The Chamber of Commerce, in an advertisement in this week's Advance, is asking the cooperation of the citizens in- support of the ,wo Algona bakeries as home industries. Major Saul yesterday said that a bread war has been in operation here during the last month. Loaves which were 8c 'are now 5c and the former lOc loaves are two for 15c. The former lOc loaves were only 20 ounces, but now 24 oz. loaves are on sale. The two Algona bakeries employ 16 persons which have a yearly payroll of more than $25,000, and as home industries they deserve the support from loyal citizens. Major -Saul points' out. It is said that the real battle is between • Colonial' and' the, A & P chain, but'that other concerns in the .bread business 1 have to meet the prices thus brought about.
