M. Office Business Men Buy Old Laundry to Give Bldg. Clear Quarter Block The new $64,000 Algona ixistoffice will be located at North Dodge St., at the corner of Call street, just north of the Algona Upper Des Moines building, It was announced Monday by the post office department. Following Is an official communication received by Postmaster J. A. McDonald from In* treasury department'. "Sir: Reference is made to the land sought to be acquired as the site for the poit office at Algoua, Iowa. You are advised that acceptance has txen made of the proposals of Messrs. E. J. House and B. W. Heise, for Uie sale of property located on the southwest corner of Call and Dodge streets, in amount. $6,000, as th« site for the proposed building. Respectfully, Wm. K. Laws, chief, legal section." It was reported that the two other considered siUs, one a block south on Thorlngton street, across from the Legion hall, was too small, and thai the Kossuth Implement corner was a trifle too far from the center of the business section, which is said w be directly In front of the Bor chard t drug store. The one chief drawback with the site at Dodge and Call, was the fact, Uiat two old frame buildings, at present unoccupied, would mar the beauty of the post office, and also serve as fire hazards. To remedy this, and to provide a full quarter block, busl- neis men in the vicinity raised $3.200 with which they will buy th« Rist property (old laundry buildintfJ for $2,WO, and the remaining $800 will go to E. J. Hodgss with the understanding that he will remove the old garage building now located Uiere, but ketp the lot. Tho.-,e wlio joined in buying the. property weie us follows: Kohlhuas Bros $500; Joe Gieeiiberg, $500; F. S. Norton A: Sun, $i>00; Haggard and Peterson, SaUO; W. A. Barry, $200; A. H Borchardt, $200; E. J. Hough. $275; Tony Klrsch, $200; Moe & SJogrsn $200; Christ onsen Brcs., $100; and A L. Long. $25. Wor'c may start this fall, but no definite word has been received. Twins? Kossuth Can Match Any National Record There seems to be one doctor who U on the ftaft of Ohio State University, who b not familiar with doings in the wide world, and whose statistics are all wrong, because he recently staged that an Ohio family Jmd the only pair of consecutive twins in the nation. But for Dr. Plutnroefs benefit, let it be stated that Kossuth county has one case of two consecutive twins, and one caee of three consecutive aete of twins. Mra. K. U. Spencer of Algona is the mother of two consecutive sets of twins, all boys, who are now in high Mhool here, where they are taking prominent parts in school abbletlctf and class affairs, and Mr. and Mrs. Chris Bolle, family living near Hurt, are the parents of three consecutive sets of twins. There are seven children in the BoCie family, all of whom were born in Dreg-on. The family moved to Kotfsuth county four years a«o. Mr*. Bolie first save birth to two children, then the tint pair of twins, two boys, then thfe bccoucl, two boy*. «ne uf whom passed away, aad tbea the third, a boy and a firl, now ill thpir second grade in school.

GODFREY TALKS "COMMON SENSE" IN FARM SPEECH Tel\s Rolfe Picnic Guests Depression Has Made Folks Think Qeorg? Godfrey, In an address to the Oarfieid farm bureau near Rolfe, ga thered for 1U annual picnic at th notfe aty park Thowday, desfarf that despite the hanlshlpB of the depression, it had been of great, value in that it had made the farmers think and study and put their business on an Intelkctual basts. They not only have to study production now In which they were efficient before, but alsc have to study the marketing, financial and social end of the business. Ho pointed out to this audience that the drought had taken care of the present surplus but that nature could not be depended upon to take care of future problems. The weatherman, he snid. usually destined dry weather to be followed by a wet season so that next year would probably see a bumper crcp again. At that rate unless something is done to acquire a market outlet, production will have to be controlled or the farmers will be right buck In their previous trouble. He said that of course things would adjust themselves in time if left alone but In the meantime people would starve and suffer. The audience were told not to depend on the leveling of nature which is always heartless but to use the Intellect God gave them to build something bettor than their fathers ever dreamed of. The speaker pointed out two handicaps that were facing the planned program. One was the Idea that .'laiiKhterliitf pigs and curtailing crops were morally wrong and for such acts O (1 hud visit: rt this drought upon 111- proplo. The oilier was the crv for niR- ir<-<i individualism of t!i« early days Tlw .sneaker pointed out that pioneer Individualism Uid not mean as many thought, '-.very man for himself", but meant .self-a.-.sertion and the finest typo This hi' said was still d and is the tolutlon for the present problun.

FODDERPLAN NETS MILLION FOR KOSSUTH The announcement was made yesterday that the AAA would undertake a corn fodder purchase program which will directly afDect Kossmth county, and may mean an additional revenue of around one million dollars, it was pointed out by men close to the situation here. Poddcr corn, in many instances a by-product of the corn crop that la not used when regular feed is plentiful, Is to be purchased by the gov- erment in northern Iowa and southern Minnesota, and shipped to drouth areas to feed starving cattle. There are 185,000 acrea planted to corn in Kcvs&uth county. Assuming that the corn fodder from only 100,000 acres is available, or has not and will not be used by Kossuth farmers, and that each acre produces about one and a half tons of fodder, at a price of from $6.50 to $7.50 a ton, each u ere will produce about $10 in extra revenue from the sale of corn fodder. Complete details of the plan are awaited with great interest.
