BIG DECREASE IN LOCAL FIRE LOSS Department Had and Total'Losa $2,343,10 Evidently Algona residents are exercising greater care in preventing fires, because a check of reports by Mre Chief O. A. Anderson, recently, showed thai the local department had a record of only 33 calls during 1033, fewer in number than for any of the three previous years. And, in addition, the to- total flre loss in 1933 was only $2,343.10 a much lower figure than for 1932, and a great compliment to the department. A comparison of the past four years follows: 1930—t country calls, 22 residence calls, 8 business calls, total 37. 1931—6 country calls, 31 residence calls, 4 business calls, total 42. (One Wesley call). 1932—5 country calls, 22 residence calls, 8 business calls, total 36. 1933—S country calls, 19 residence calls, 8 business calls, total 32. A report of the local equipment as compiled by Chief Anderson includes two trucks, one a Luverne pumper and the second a combination pumper and chemical truck, the latter carrying two 45 gallon chemical tanks, one 100 gallon booster tank, 500 feet of 2% inch hose, and 300 feet l'/j inch hose, and full 'ladder equipment. Members of the department in addition to Mr. Anderson are Burt Muckey, Lloyd Muckey, Prank Kohlhaas, J. W. Kelly, Harry McMurray, O. C. Wright, Stevenson, Prank Ostrum, Ralph Elbert, Ray Barton, Harry Barton, Ed Palmer and George St. John.

Curran Will Have at Least One Signer A. P. Curran of LuVerne was in the office, Tuesday, and told a good Joke on himself. He said a Republican candidate for governor had asked him to circulate a petition in his behalf. Mr. Curran clrculatde the petition, and decided it would have to contain but one signature, his own. He is of the opinion that we'll be a "big family of crying kids" if the dole plan keeps up, but stated that the farm loan plan was one that he thought very much worthwhile. Last year Mr. Curran advanced a plan of wheat and cotton production and consumption which ha still thinks will have to be adopted before we begin to get definite and permanent recovery. Ineligible for CWA A trio of Lakota young men found that %hey wwe insJigibfcs fpr OWA work this week, when It was discovered that, they were not naturalized citizens.

Robinson, 77, dearly beloved Kossuth resident, was found dead in the yard on his home place several miles east of town, last Saturday morning. He had suffered a second heart attack in a few days, believed to have been aggravated by the horror in connection with the robbery and torture to which he and Mrs. Robinson were subjected on Feb. 8, when three men held them prisoners for two hours in an effort to obtain a sum of money which they believed to be hidden on the Robinson farm. C. C. Robinson was born August 2, 1857, at Norfolk, Virginia. He moved with his parents to Illinois when a child, and grew to manhood there, where he married Sarah Elizabeth Mc- Cormlck, July 4, 1880. He came with his family to Iowa in 1903, and for the past 16 years had lived on his place east of town. He and his wife celebrated their golden wedding anniversary In 1930. Funeral services were held at the Methodist church on Monday afternoon, with Rev. C. V. Hulse officiat- in. Burial was in the Algona cemetery. Surviving are Mrs. Robinson and four children, Mrs. Raleigh Pickard of Burt, Iowa, Mrs. Bert Pickard of Littleton, 111., Louis Rjobdnson 4f Algona ajnd Mrs. Wm. Altwegg of Algona. He had three brothers and two sisters living, Louis of Deland, 111., James of Monmouth, I1L, and H. O. of SheUbine, Mo., and Mrs. Rosa Edwards and Mrs. Jennie Williams of Breckinridge, Michigan. State Men Still Probe Case ' No new developments in the mystery of the Robinson farm raid were forthcoming this week, although two state men, A. A. Robertson and Paul Gruber, have been making further Investigation. The trio arrested here the night of the robbery, Martin, Davis and Reynolds, are still in jail. It has been ascertained that they left a trailer iu Humboldt the night of the robbery, and came here to get liquor, according to their story. Tbey were all in an Inebriated condition when found, but have not as yet been definitely linked with the robbery and torture.

Hugh Colwell, Wife, Have Close Call in Train-Car Mishap Mr. and Mrs. Hugh Colwell, living east of LuVerne, were injured Friday night of last week while returning home, when Mr. Colwell was blinded by the bright headlights, and thought the train had passed, and ran his car into the train. The train was unusually long, and as Mr. Colwell was driving very slowly the accident did not seriously injure either of them. The car was badly damaged, however, and the couple were bruised and shaken up. Mr. Colwell, a well known auctioneer in the south end of the county who is planning to move to Algona in the near future, was able to resume his duties, however, and Mrs. Colwell was also able 'to attend to her household duties. Who's Who and What They Do No. 18 of a Scries of Thumbnail Portraits Mads Christiansen started out to be a sailor; maybe that's why he ended up in the Inland state of Iowa. But to tell you a little more about it. This story about Mads is not generally known, but at th« tender age of four. Mads started on ocean voyage. At the family home in Denmark WAS kept a tank in which meat was salted with brine. This tank, Mads and another youthful friend decided, would make an ixoellent sailing vessel, so they went down to the sea In a brine tank. They pushed off and got out into the bay, aid then the wind changed, and the iads found themselves sailing right out into the ocean. Mads' father was on a vessel coming Into the harbor at that time, and he spied the boys, picked them up and brought them ashore. The hale and hearty manager of tha Algona Cooperative Creamery, known over a wide area for his genial nature and his great interest in the welfare of the dairy business, left Denmark In 1888, landing in Canada. He worked on a farm near Quebec and came to the United States in 1915. Alter a short visit In Chicago he came west, landing at Wesley, where he went to work on the Neal Smith farm for a short time. The story of Mads, a team of mules, and an angry bull la still recalled in connection with Mads' sojourn on the Wesley 'farm. The bull came up and butted over a mule while Mads was loading hay. Mads got madder than the bull and started after it with a pitchfork. He chased the bull way across the field, where the animal laid down and wagged his tail like a gentle dog.. Mads came to the Algona Cooperative Creamery in 1915, and has beeni here ever since. He Is a director of the Iowa State Brand creameries, and one of Iowa's deary leaders. —Photo by Peterson studio MADS CHBIBTIAN8EN He smokes cigars, liken a good Joke, coffee and dogs, and can see fun in nearly everything (and we hope that Includes this yarn about him) and is easily spotted in his whit* uniform about town. He had many friends, all of whom have helped in building up a legend of stories about K|ad0. Some day well print a. book and publish them all.
