Merchants' Auction Fun Is on; Here's the Dope With 54 Algona business firms cooperating in the event, the second Merchandise Auction will get under way here this noon. The plan is the sama as last year. Prom now until noon on August 31, auction money in equal amounts to each purchase, or the payment on account, will fie handed to the customer. On August 31, in the afternoon at. 2 o'clock, prizes or regular merchandise, donated by the cooperating firms, will be auctioned off from the band stand. Each article will go to the highest bidder. There will be more than 100 prizes again this year. Because small children had a tendency to run clerks and storekeepers ragged last year, no coupons on the auction page may be redeemed by anyone under 16 years of age. Cooperating stores are not going to exchange coupons for the auction dollars unless the person presenting them Is ov-sr sixteen. The first coupon page appears in this week's paper. Start right now to pet your shore of the auction money. By clipping the coupons on the auction page, and taking them to the stores named, anyone over 16 can Immediately acquire 54 dollars in auction money. Then when yon shop, ask for the money; do the same when yon pay bills, and try yonr hand at the auction. There will be -enough prizes at the auction so that anyone who really goes after a prize will have a good chance of getting one. It's all fun, and nobody can lose any'>.:.:,.. The iist of prizes will be announced in this paper next week, but in the meantime get busy. Last year a crowd of about 800 attended the auction, and merchandise valued at about $500 was passed out in a four hour period. This year the auction Is to be held on Friday, and five clerks will be on hand to speed up the auction. More complete details of the auction will be announced later. Auction money will be in denominations of fifty cents, one dollar, five and ten dollars. The money will not be issued for any purchase under 25 cents, and from that sum up will be Issued in amounts nearest the purchase. That is a 40 cent purchase brings a 50 cent auction slip, and a Ja cent purchase would bring a one dollar auction bill. The prizes given consist principally of all sorts, household fur- nishlnps, service cards, gasoline, oil, and things of a similar nature. There'll be something In the list of prizes that you need—the Merchandise Auction Is on. Save your Auction Moray.

State Wishes to Pasture 30,000 Cattle Here From Drought-Burned Counties FUNERAL SERVICE HELD ON TUESDAY A Sunday morning swimming party, at the sand pit between Algona and Burt, about two miles east of highway 69. turned into grim tragedy, when Bernard Tierrtey, 28, son of Mrs. Oeo. Holtzbauer, drowned a short time af- er going in the water. With three companions, Mary Kain, Alice Behlmcr and his sister, Lorraine, all of Algona, and his wife who was not swimming, Bernard had gone to the popular swimming place for a Ittle pleasure, while he was visiting here. He was In a spot between 20 and 30 feet in depth, it is estimated, when he sank. He cried for help before going down, and efforts were made to reach him, but because of tlw depth of the water, those present could not reach the bottom of the pit.

Efforts were made for over on hour to resuscitate the young man but failed. It Is said that no water was found In his lungs, and the supposition Is that he may have died of heart failure due to sudden exposure to the cold water in the pit.

Graduated in 1926 Bernard was born in Tltonka, in 1907. Both he and hi.s wife were graduates of the Algona high school class of 1926. and the young man's loss is deeply felt. Ho held a Rod position, and was in line for n promotion, at the time of the fatal swimming party.
