Merchants were flooded during the 24 hours preceding the auction with coupons, printed In The Algona Uppe Des Moines. The auction took exactly two hours, and was speeded up by the use of five clerks. C. O. Riddle and Hugh Colwell acted as acutioneers and kept things humming all the time. Bidding was spirited, and althougn the crowd was smaller than last year practically everyone present was there te bid. The articles auctioned off die not bring as much as last year, as restrictions on the free auction money kept the amount issued down to smaller proportions than was the case last year. Several local firms reported the payment of back bills, some as high as $600, due to a desire to obtain auction money. The entire auction went off smoothly. At one time, two bidders got their bids up so high that neither was quite certain as to whether they had enough to meet their bid, and time was taken out while the two bidders had their money counted to determine the successful bidder.
