Brack store at Ledyard. Both robberies occurred early Thursday mom Ing. At Whittemore, the loot was all in casru The robbers broke fovtJo 'the creamery and dragged the cream-sry safe out into a nearby fleld, where they proceeded to attack it with a sledgehammer. Thsy obtained their money and fled, leaving the sledgehammer behind them. Even Take Perfume At Ledyard, the thieves broke in a panel of a back door in the Brack general store, and did a thorough Job of ransacking. The articles taken consisted chiefly of clothing, such as 30 pairs of shoes, boxes of hose, shirts, underwear for both ladies and men, ties, an assortment of infant's wear and even perfume. The thieves evidently became alarmed before computing their Job, because they left several bundles which Algona Woman Uses Scraps Discarded for 128 Quilts Ice Cream Party Slated Saturday By Jimmie Neville All children under 12 years of age are invited to an Ice cream party In the new addition to the Neville Spore, by Jilmmle Neville, Saturday, August 11, between the hours of 2 and 4 o'clock, Jlmmle will play the role of "Granpa," and in making the announcement gays: "I want to see all my little friends, hear them laugh and talk.

Ribs Torn From Man's Spine in Automobile Upset Joe Garmann of St. Benedict, was seriously injured in an accident which occurred just east of the John Frank! place ou the McGregor street road, Tuesday noon, when his car slipped from th-? grade and turned over into a deep ditch. Garmnnn's body was bruised, his ear was nearly cut. off by flying glass, and lie suffered the painful injury of having three ribs torn loose from his backbone. In a dazed condition, he wa-s found by a tenant at the Frnnkl plao , who called the sheriff. Medical ulientlon was given, and he was rushed ID iho Kossuth hospital where flrsl old was rendered. Just how Ihe accident happened was not known a* the injured man was in no coiiditi-in to be qu- slioncd follow- ig his mishap. Tracks showed, however, that trie car had edged loward the shoulder of the road, and then suddenly dropped Into the ditch. Klassie Case Held Over After Trade Name Controversy While Algona und Kossuth county merchants scratched their heads in perplexlly over the question of wlifclh- er or not they had filed their trade. nanv In compliance with the Iowa code of 1931, 3. H. Klassie of Renwick, owner of the Algona Motor Sales here, had his case continued when H. H. Stanb-ry, who tiled tee infurmalton against him, failed lo appear. Mr. Stanbory was reported as being tick, Justice P- A. Danson was informed on Tuesday. A warrant for Klassie's arrest was Issued lasi week, charging him wilh engagine and conducting a business contrary to the code. This law requires registration of ft business trude name in the county recorder's oHicu. It Is generally conceded here that fifty per cx-ia of Ihe local business hou&.s had not filed their trade names, bul many of them have done so alter this case came up. The law seems to b; one about which the general public knows very liltle. Justice Daitoon said he would continue the case until Stanbcry hiuutll could attend Ihe 'hearing. j W Liltle is manager of Hie motor ' firm here for Klassie, and suid that he understood the Hade nani--" had been Hied in accordance wilh the law. _ Seek Bancroft Man on Forgery Charge A warrant for the arrest, of Hugh Ltttuuc-r of B-ncroft, wanted by Hancock county officials on a bad check clvinji- was iosuei.1 la^t w.cK.

Hi.,! :.e purchaM'U a Used tvu' In Maion City under an assumed nanij.- and puld for il wilh a forged check Although many an Algona resident would have given a great deal this week to know more about the potential site of the new postoffice, J. T. Nelson, postoffice inspector, left town yes- terda'y with 1h e secret of where he really thinks the postofflce will go, locked tightly In his breast. Mr. N-slson came to Algona the first of the week. He had pictures taken of all the sites offered which will be considered. He endeavored to g*t all bidders to drop their prices. And he departed, with his material and pictures, which will be forwarded .to a joint committee JW» the wwtofllce and" treasury department* *t Washington, who will in turn make a final decision in the matter. That the postoffice department likes to have south and we«t light in the wvifToornK of It.s postofficps. was one indicator dropped by Mr. Nelson. However, anyone can name a score of new po-stoffice buildings which have not taken this into account in the selection of a site. He also stated that he believed all of the prices asked wore. high enough. In the meantime, your guess is as good a.s ours, with the choice of sites certainly narrowed down to about three: the Kossuth Implement corner, tho present horseshoe court on North Dodge and the corner Just cast of tho Norton Lumber yard. The horsrshoc court corner Is nearest the center of activity, population and th-? business district, bul Nelson stated lhat the deparlment would not need ths old laundry or garage building Just north of the Unner Di"s Moines office, and that if tlif.-y were to remain there, they would certainly be a serious eyesore to a now nostofftce, and might keep that -site from being selected. No Kick on County Corn-Hog Contracts Heard Here to Date That the Kossuth county corn-hog contracts were having cl. ar sailing at. Washington seemed evident Ihis week. No word regarding overstatements, the bugaboo of some other counties, had been received here Wednesday, leading lucal officials to believe lhat this county's contracts were being approved. The early pay riders were also approved, mid the committee felt that if such was tlx- case, the remainder of the contracts were O. K. A E. Clayton, chairman of the coun- ly committee, and O. A. Boniktetter, secretary, attended a meeling, Monday, ut Ames. Infc»-mation regarding compliance was received by the cummitlee ihia week. The second payment on the contract, which is scheduled for November 15, 1934. cannot be made unlil the first certificate of compliance has IK en executed and certified to by the producer, compliance supervisors and the county allotment committee. Tlie control association is anxious to gel necessary inspeclions marie and forward proof lhat individual contracts are complying with the t-erms of the contract and its ruling. Farmers are asked lo have Iheir record books ready for Irispeclion by Ihe farm supervisor who will assisl in the checking. 40 Applic&nts for Old Age Pensions Nearly 40 applicants for old age pensions in Kossuth county have been received lo date, E. J. Butler, counly auditor, revealed Tuesday. The appli- calionii will be inspected by the county old age pension committee, coiisisl- ing of Tom Carmody of Whittemore, Mrs. F. L.

Some of you, thinking of previous days, will probably say that you wear them. But just what do you do with those left over dresses, suits, bits of cloth, etc.? Do you store them away thinking that "some day I"l mkae something or other for Junior of Susie? Sime- day! But that some day never seems to come to most of us and the odds and ends of material are frozen -assete which collect until in despara'ion we bundle them up and throv/ in the city dump. Ihis Is a story about a woman who put to good use alt those let*,-ov- ers and ocltsves thit one of the reasons we are going through a financial crisis is our heedlessness of that phrase, "willful waste is woeful want.'' Uses Many Designs Mrs. Warren Baldwin, wife of Al- gona'a widely known former drayman, has made 128 quilts in the last 18 years from the scraps other people had thrown away as useless. These quilts are made on an average size ol 2% yards by 2% yards and are sewed on a machine. The designs are intricate, pretty, colorful and most of them are made up by Mrs. Baldwin as she sews She also saves Illustrated quilt patterns from magazines which she sometimes uses. Some of the designs usec which will be familiar to other quilt makers, are: Sunflower, Nine and Sixteen Patch, Morning Star and Japan Plate. Quilts with designs such as these are macte of prints, but silk stockings are used to make the "bis cult" quilt which gets its name from the puckered squares In It. At on« time a clothing merchant In Algona Knowing Of MrsrBaldwln'g hobbr. sav ed scraps of material sent him <u packing around bulky objects trom eastern cities and presented them t her in a huge box. Mrs. Baldwin has saved a few of the quilts In whicl WPTP used these scraps. AH of Mrs Baldwin's handiwork shows good taste originality, neat work and an eye fo color harmony. A very special quilt mnde by Mrs Baldwin for her granddaughter con talncd large squares on which wen embroidered the flower and bird o each of the forty-eight states. Thi. wa.s an elaborale affair and look mori time than other quilts. Mrs. Baldwin, however, was unable to mak-.- any definite estimation as to the time each quilt took to be made. Was 75 Saturday Friends, neighbors, relatives, strangers and the poor and mvdy, all benefit from Mrs. Baldwin's never ille hands. She carries on extensive charity work an dtwo years ago -sent quilU 10 each of 18 de.slitute families in flood-.strickrn Mississippi and also litil) pounds of clothes. These clothes, gathered by Mr. Baldwin in the cour.-e of his duties, which «re .still wearable are cleaned and given away and others are rlppr.d apart and ui-ed ih Die making of quilts and comforters. One interesting fact noted by Mrs. Baldwin was the suiUs and other clothing thrown away by boys who had graduated from high school and were about to enter college. Mrs. Baldwin oby-rved her seven- ty-flflh birlhday lasl Saturday and is a firm believer in work. Quilt making is not her only hobby. A garden, in which he spends a great deal of her lime In Ihe iutnmer among her flowers, a fish pond with its numerous large und small gold fish, Hire-- canaries and her vegetable garden together with the hours spent at her sewing machine fill up the hours of Mrs. Baldwin's busy and simple, but happy days. Teeth Knocked Out In Algona Mishap Fred Claude. Britt, had several tetth knocked out and was badly shaken up and bruised in an auto ;u-cHi.-iH which occurred yest-.rday morning at the Dingley corner. His machine and another car driven by Bernard Brings, collided at the corner, and the impact threw the machine Claude was driving uo on too l::e ;U-p.s in th_ parking in front of the Dingley residence. The car, which belonged to the Algona Mo- t.r Saks, was badly damaged. Claude- was trying il out with the inttntion of buying. Claude was ibrown down under tiR- sleering wheel when the cars struck. and could nol -help stepping on Ihe ac- c-clevutor which gave lUe cur added tnomenluui as il nil the high curbing at that point.

CAUSE OF DROP BUT HE IS STILL A U. S. CITIZEN K-Ball Bat Hits Homer First Time Up; Batting Average Perfect A kittenball bat, used by the sons of Carl Dahlhauser, sheriff, on the athletic fleld, came in handy for a different purpose, last Thursday even- ng at the county jail, when the sheriff found two of his inmates preparing to make a Jail-break. The sheriff had listened to the band concert from his court house office, and was on his way home preparatory to going down to the athletic fleld to witness the burro game. He wanted to take along a few cigars. As he passed the walk leading to the Jail, he heard something drop with a thud. Good Batting Average Several months ago, one of the prisoners escaped by sawing his way through the bars, and when the sheriff heard this noise, he promptly stole around behind the Norton Machine Works and listened. On the ground floor, in the southwest corner, he heard voices, and the rasping noise of a saw. The noise had been caused by a bar holding the screen in place dropping to the pavement. Getting the kittenball bat, Sheriff Dahlhauser returned to the scene of afction. "You gotta bend It more,' said a voice. The bending was accomplished and then the rear portion of a man's anatomy emerged from the window, between two badly bent bars. But the sheriff was ready, and he hit a home run, followed immediately by a triple nnd then a round otf fitiia.'hlng singles. He did not miss a slrike and Herbert Johnson, Scdalin, Mo., quickly withdrew into the jail. Used Eating Knife The sheriff found that Johnson had managed to make a saw out of a common eating knife, -so that It did excellent work. Hal Sailor of Wesley, another inmaU' held on a statutory chaise had be-'n locked ill a cell of ins own, and Johnson had picked _ Unlock, enabling him lo get ou:. Th" two planned on makin:; their break lot-ether. Johnson is held on a charge of larceny In connection with a recent rcbbery at Galbraith. Both have been bound to Ihe grand jury. Now they will both face nn additional charge of attempting to break jail. There were seven in th:- jail at the lime, but the sheriff reports tha; tin- other five men hart noUnny to do wiui the affair. John Reding of the St-. Joe community, thinks a lot of his American citizenship. In fact he thinks so much of it that he has crossed the Atlantic six times in the last seven years to hold it—and to do it he kaves behind him a wife and two children in Luxemburg. He Is now visiting friends and relatives in the St. Joe community, having left Antwerp, Belgium on his last crossing, July 12th. He has been slaying at the John Reding, ST., George Hermann section.

Celling down 10 the iauie \\ay. and other homes in that Gone Four Months John was born In the United States, of Luxemburg parents who like many other of the solid families nt St. Joe, helped to settle Kossuth county. Seven years ago he went back to Luxem- >urg for a visit, met and married his wife, a native Luxemburg girl. But Mrs. Reding has a fear of crossing the ocean, so John conies back every so often, to keep his citizenship. On his last trip across, he was gone four months, but came back before his ^qssport expired. Neutral in World War He says his story Is nothing compared with a fellow he met on the boat, who was going from Pennsylvania to Europe. He hadn't been back there for 23 years and he said he didn't know whether he'd recognize his wife or not when he saw her. In Luxemburg, the Redlngs live at Dlckkirsch, a city of >about 4,000, the size of Algona. The country is about the size of Kossuth county, and has an army of 200. It, with Holland was tha only neutral country hi Europe during the World War. Weather Is Ideal The climate, he states, is Ideal. The houses are made of ston-., and are always cool. The lilmponiturc never gets over 85 degrees loh, boy!), and in the winter the coldest W'.ather only manages to put <a thin layer of ice over th- ponds (oh, boy, again). Commenting on the present .situation in Europe, he .slated that although nobody dared .'•ay much against Hitler, nt '.lust in Gfcrmnivy. there seemed to be a great deal of undercurrent against him, with mosl of Europe- lined up against Germany at the present time. Hi..- predicted thai the Ruhr valley pleboKclle. to be held In 1935, would result in a 20 to 1 vole in favor of remaining with Franco. Luxemburg is silualed belw. en Hi'l- t'ium, France and O.-rmanyi and is a beautiful mountainous country where lourist travel is very heavy. Living Is Inexpensive Living ever there is ver;' in- xpeiuivo, and the way John talked about the country, it seemed that it must be plenly of fun living there. On his last trip over he took th • Europa, one of tht: newest ocean e.r-'y- hoiiniis, and reluming tailed on the Wcaernland of the Hed Slar line, a .-.lower vessel. He plans ou .staying here for a time, until lie can ev. nlually obtain a new passp-rl and again cross the AUantic ,D \ his family.
