BUT DIME WAS ABSENT A great number of people in Kossuth and neighboring counties would have 'to stop and think a moment if we said Mrs. Joe Wadsworth to them, but if the name "Aunt Jen" was mentioned almost everyone would know at once whom we were talking about. So it is about "Aunt Jen" that our story is written. Aunt Jen has been on a flve months' vacation. She Is 78 years old and has lived In the same house on the corner of Thorington and Call Streets for 07 years. Her whole life has been one of service for her relatives and friends and this is her first real vacation. She left for Birmingham, Alabama, last November and has been at the home of her son. Archie Bushnell, who Is connected with the Pan-American Oil & Gas Company, until her arrival home here Thursday of last week. ; Aunt Jen is an active, alert woman who takes an interest in all things. She thinks that the conditions in the south are worse 'than they ever were in the north and that the depression seems to have hit them harder. About three negroes to every white person were counted by her. Takes Dip on Birthday Mr. and Mrs. Bushnell and son, Jlm- mle Joe, took Aunt Jen on a flve day trip through northern Florida during the latter part of March and on her 78th birthday, March 22, Aunt Jen took a dip in the Atlantic ocean near Meredith, Florida. She also picked up a number of shells which she brought back with her. She visited with Mr. and Mrs. Wood Cowan and child of New York City, who were spending the winter in Sarasota, Florida. Barasota is the headquarters of Rlngllng Brothers and their circus during the winter.

Well Read About This First Aid in Behalf of a Marriage at Midnight KOSSUTH FEDERAL FARM CREDIT AID HirSJl,934,800 A total of $1.394,800 federal land bank and Land Bank Commissioner's farm mortgage loans was made in Kossuth county, from June 1. 1933, to May 1, 1884, according to the Farm Credits administration. Of this total, farmers in county used approximately $1,287,400 or 92.3 per cent to refinance their In- <tebtedneas. By reflnacing, farmers obtained new mortgage loans which they used 'to repay their old debte. Of the loan money used by farmers in Kussuth county for refinancing their debt*, about $359,900, it was tittmated, repaid their debts to bunk; $809,SOO. their debts to insurance companies; $3,600 their taxes; $1,400, 'their debts to merchants; $311.000 their debts to "others", or creditors not separately classified, including private mortgage tender*, mortgage loan companies, retired farmers and many others to whom /armera w*re in debt. A total of about $107,400 of loam in the county was used for purposes other than the refinancing of borrowers' debts. Of this sum, $39,100 was used lor the purchase of land and equipment the construction or improvement of buildings, and for general agricultural uses, Including the provision of capita), while $68,300, the balance, was used for the purchase of stock in national farm loan association, for loan fees, etc. Aunt Jen went into 1 famous Spanish cafe which U owned by Cubans and which serves Spanish food only. A Spanish bean soup is their specialty and the meal of Spanish bean soup, beer and bread was one of the things most enjoyed by Aunt Jen during the whole trip. She brought back jsome of Uie Spanish beans which have a hard shell and are a good deal like a nasturtium seed in appearance, being bigger however. Swmnee a Disappointment At St. Augustine, Florida, she went through the Spanish Fort, the oldest Catholic church and the oldest school In Uie United States. One of the biggest disappointments for Aunt J<?n on the trip was the Swanee River. It had been lauded so much in song, poem, etc., that she expected too much she thought and when it turned out to be an ordinary sandy bottom river, much like the Des Moines river around here, it proved to be a great disappointment. Iron mining Is carried on extensively around Birmingham and Aunt Jen picked up a piece of raw Iron In the Bushnell back yard which she now has. ,, She also brought back oranges Bhe Kossuth .„,___, ln winHda.

A number of former Algona residents have linked Uv« name Algtma with their praiseworthy deeds, but the latest benevolence of Mr. and Mrs. Gardner Oowles, now of Des Molnes, takes th» lead as among Iowa's greatest benefactors. Last week they gave a half million dollars for the establishment of a benevolent trust to aid deserving Iowa institutions. A few weeks ago Mr. and Mrs. Cowles gave the Algona library $5,000, and a few years ago Mrs. Cowles who is the daughter of Ambrose A. Call, one of the founders of Algona, was the main factor in the •establishment of the Ambrose A. Call State Park. Mr. and Mi's. Cowles left Algona over thirty years ago and moved to Des Molnes, where Mr. Cowles Is the publisher of the Des Molnes Register and Tribune. Mr. Cowles, who Is reputed to be ft millionaire, has never lost interest in Algona where he made his humble beginning in the early eighties as head of the Algona city schools. Mr. and Mrs. cowlea 1 princely gift Is mentioned In the dally press as follows: Mr. and Mrs. Gfcrdner Cowles of Moines Saturday established a $500,000 benevolent trust. The fund will be known as the Gardner OowVea Foundation. Its purpose is to give financial assistance to worth; institutions needing help for charitable Algona, the Friendly City! Listen to this story of yearning hearts, and helping hands, t»nd you'll understand that this beautiful slogan Is more than a bromide, n Dlay on words, or a happy phrase concocted in a moment of levity. Twas early Sunday morning, and in a local cafe a man and a woman sat. Nearby a group of prominent local citizens were having their be- fore-golng-to-bed coffee. As ships that pass in the night, th-o couple and the local citizens exchanged words of greeting, and It came to pass that the couple stated they had been trying to find someone to marry them all the way from Mason City to Spencer. One local man, alert to the situn- ilon. and discovering that the prospective bride was 30, and the potential groom was 35, and judging them old enough to know their own minds, said he'd help. Almn Pearson, deputy clerk of court, was cnll- od. She came down town nt 1:15 n. m.. and filled out a license. A hurried call brought Paul Danson, justice, to the seen?, a trifle sleepy- oyed, but, ever willing to serve. And In live presence of about 20 individuals, and with two local citizens acting as the best men, they became man and wife. The ceremony wo* performed in a local store and Night Mar&hal Van Alstyne was on hand, ncting as the head usher, perhaps. It should be added that, the couple were in dead seriousness, and although Uic ceremony was performed early In the morning, the lateness of the hour did not mean thflti they were not sure of themselves. They said thfcy had been going together for 17 years. The couple were George Kutlna- of Mnnly nnd Clara Jlrsa of Glenvllle, Minn. Senator L. J.

Oranges and grape fruits, she says, sell for about 50c for half a bushel. Another thing that interested Aunt Jen were the roses. They grow almost again as large there as here and most of them are a deep red. color. Raves grow profusely there and she says that we cannot picture in our minds their beauty. The only thing that Aunt Jen regrets having missed was an airplane ride She and her son had planned to go up but because it was a windy Lnclle Dole Valedictorian Lucile Dole as valedictorian will make the valedictory address, and Raymond Jennett is the salutatorian.

Sheriffs Dahlhauser of Kossuth and Montgomery of Palo Alto went to Shell Lake, Wisconsin, after him, but Palo Alto ob'iained him due to the tiling of a more serious charge in that community. It was stated that the Wisconsin sheriff, who arrested Brethorst upon the request of Iowa officers, found 15 guns in his possession at his shack Including revolvers, automatic rifles and rifles, all loaded. Brethorst was to face charges as the outgrowth of a kidnapping at the Dan Sibrel farm in Palo Alto, in which Uie family was robbed of liquor and money to cd in. one the back- Girl Badly Hurt; Thrown from Horse Georgia Wicker, age 12, daugluer of Mr. and Mrs. George Wicker, northeast of Swea Ci'ty, was riding a horse aftei Uie mail Tuesday of last week, when the Jiorie junnKd off the grade, throwing 'tile girl into a barbed wire fence A large piece of flesh" was torn fron her about as big as a saucer and her left arm was laid open from tht elbow to the wrist.

It is planned to distribute the entire principal, as well as the income during the next 20 years. Wide Latitude Mr Cowles, who is president of The Register and Tribune Company, stated that under the terms of the trust, the directors would have wide latitude in the distribution of the Income and principal of the fund, but that Des Molnes and Iowa Institutions would be given preference. Mr. and Mrs. Cowles named three of their children, who live In Des Molnes, Mrs. D. S. Krulden- ier, John Cowles and Gardner Cowles, Jr., os directors of the! foundation. The directors, who serve without com- jensatlon, will themselves elect succes- >ors when vacancies occur. "A Better Iowa" In announcing establishment of the 'oundattoii Gardner Cowks made Uie ollowtng statement: "Mrs. Cowles and I have lived our entire lives in Iowa, and for more than 30 yean, have resided in De Vloines. We low the state. During Jie recent years of depression we havt- jeen particularly distressed at the dif- IcuJt times that many very worthy >enevolent institutions in Iowa are having. We believe that Iowa people who are able should help the** institutions a survive and continue to render their service to the public. It Is our hope that the gifts distributed by this foundation over a period of years will help in tome measure to make Iowa a still place 1 in which to live."

Ask Check of Acreage to Uncover and Correct Possible Errors Until the corn-hog allotment committee of Kossuth county can bring the overstatement* of contract signers In the county on the number of acres of corn they planted in 1032 and 1933 in lino with the approved acreage for this county, the great mass of corn-hog contracts cannot be started on their wny to Washington. D. C.. it was declared this week. There is an overstatement of 3 per cent in cxress of the approved acreage for the county at the present time. G. A. Bonnstetter, secretary, said that Ihn overstatement probably occurred in this mann-rr. If a man had 40 acres of corn in for 1932 and 1933, he may have had a turn-row around the field approximately a rod In width, and In this case there would be a half acre on each side of the field not In corn, or two acres In all, which would make nn overstatement of 2-40ths or flve per cent. Report Any Errors Those who have not measured their fields for corn In 1933 and have the) Idea that there Is the posiblllty of such an error In their contracts should measure the fields and report the same to the committee so they may meet, the requirements laid down by the board of review. Until these requirements are met, no contracts can leave the county because the allotment committee will not be able to comply with the rules until the county acreage agrees with the approved acreage for the county. SubstUoUnr Crop* In the meantime, many contract signers are confronted with a crop failure in their small grains, due to dust and sand storms and lack of moisture, and artu interested in knowing what they can sow on these small grain fields that have been damaged to the extent where they will be unprofitable if kept In the present small grain crop. On such land, the contract signer can plant any crop except corn or wheat, if he has no wheat base. It can be plont- ed to a feed crop such as oats, barley, iy<\ or grain sorghums, or it may be planted to any non-feed crop, such a.s sudan grass, soy beans or truck crops. Soy L-i'ans can be used, as they an; listed now ns a non-feed crop, even though they are cut for hay or thrcsh- urnln. Eprly Payment This Week Sixiy-elgbt early pay contract signers will receive their first corn-hoK payments this week, amounting to $12,815.05, the li'ciil corn-flog office through A. K. Clayton, president, learned Monday. The checks will b? mailed to the county secretary and all early pay contract signers will be notified.
