O. Marty, Husking Corn, Finds Remains; Parcel Post Missing ALL LETTERS HAD BEEN RIPPED OPEN United States postoffice inspectors, •working on the theory that the robbery of a mail pouch from the LuVerne post office during the night of Oct. 16 was perpetrated by tocai talent, wdre thought to be nearlng a solution of the robbery. The pouch was found half buried in * field on Uie J. O. Marty farm, about a half mile southwest near the right of way of the M. & St. L. tracks, about 10 rods from the tractes. Mr. Marty found the pouch while working in the field, husking corn, last Thursday. Pried Off Lock AccofnUag to HaHoM Phillips, Lu- Verne poctmsuter, the pouch was delivered into the railroad station from one of tbe night trains. The pouch •was placed In a locked room Inside the station, but the thief either pried or filed off the lock and stole the pouch. The pouch contained letter for Lu- Vcme, and a parcel post assortment headed for Minnesota. The letters had al] been opened and the pouch thoroughly rifted. The parcel post was missing, and the loss, although not definitely known, was thought to be considerable. In Hnmboldt County The discovery of the pouch was made • coun- l»e«n ftt* ty,w opectors. The robbery wad evidently committed by some one who was familiar with the train schedul-?. nnd afro where the pouch was placed. No railroad employee Is on duty nt the time the train arrives, it was stntcd. and the thief could work unhampered after the train pulled out. Although some letters may have been totally lost, nnd all of them were opened, a majority were received this •week with notes in them explaining the delay. Holtzbauer Buys Old Normal Lot Having in mind the construction some lime in the future, of an npirt- ment building, George Holtzbnuer purchased the property of the Heln^ohn Estate at the corner of South D^dge and Nebraska streets, on which ihe •Id normal school building now stands. The property Is 66 by 68 feet. Oeorgo stated that he did not intend to do anythng with the property this year, and that perhaps no work mould even begin next year, but he <tld state that his Intention is to some day construct an apartm.nt buiklnv, bctiiet.^.ing that he feels Algona badly need£, and in which opinion many agree witJi him. Two Arrested At Irvngton, Saturday Harry Hart of Algona was bound over to the grand Jury oh a charge of operating a motor Vehicle while Uv toxicated, Monday morning by Justice P. A. Danson, and bond was fixed at $1,000. The bond was not furnished. He waived a preliminary hearing. Hart and Archie Dodds, also of Algona, were arrested by Sheriff Dahlhauser Saturday at Irvington, after complaints had been received from residents of that section. Dodds was charged with drunkenness, and was fined $25 and costs by Justice Danson at the same time. Work Forges Ahead on New P. O. Corner The southwest comer of Dodge and Call streets, site of the new Algona poet office, took on a vacant appearance this week as final work of tearing down the former sho: shcp build- Ing was completed. Tliie remaining buildings, on the lots south of the site itself in the same half block, will be torn down as soon as the contract letting for th: post office is made. The contracts are expected to be let in several weeks. The machinery in the old laundry building has been purchased by Tony Kirscli, it was reported, and Algon- ians will scon find several of the old frame buildings, familiar for many years, a thing of the past. Ogrens Left Monday For White* in South Mr. and Mrs. Albert Ogrcn left on Monday in their cur for San Antonio, Texas, where they will again spend Uie winter. They huve spent several winters there and enjoy UK delightful winter climate. They have made many friends among the winter residents of Grande Courts, where they have made their residence each winter since going south. And best of all, Grande Courts Is located adjacent to the celebrated golf links in Brakenridge Park, where Albert usually plays golf every day. atax ferent methods of taxation, and where one group is hit a little hard under one tax, it benefits under the other, so the tax on the whole Is equalized." He referred to the sales tax, net Income tax and personal property tax. KcMuth county paid $17,928.65 for the first quarter of the sales tax, according: to Mr. Speidd. He showed that the allocation of state funds had amounted to a $41,000 tax reduction in Kossuth county. The average tax paid during the quarter was .704 in Kossulh county for every man, woman and child. The average for Polk county was 1.845, Black Hawk 1.439, and Woodbury, 1.54, Mr Speldel also pointed out. Mr. Speldel, discussing the sales tax, .siUd that IK believed that it was a very fair form of collecting taxes, and that for tho-e wiio bought much, their fhare of the tax burden was proportionately higher, and for those buying ittle, the cost was small, with the funds raised being allocated back to he counties on a basis of assessed va- .nation, bringing In the cot-; of Kossuth county, two dollars back into the county f jr every one spent in sales IX. 90 Per Cent Home Owned He wlso pointed out that the retvnt refund of properly taxes was only ihe refund for a fraction of a year, as the sales tax was in effect part of this year. Replying to a question as to how the out-of-state land owner.* aenefitted (particularly insurance companies), Speidel staled that 90 per cent of the Iowa land was owrivd within the slate, and that he did not feel that it was doing justice to the 90 per cent to consider the 10 per cent as paramount.

Gossip has It that In one home, the man of the house (we refrain fronil saying head) concerted his state liquor permit between visits to the local store, in a griddle In the cupboard. One day he returned home to find the griddle hooked up In preparation for some culinary work. The liquor permit burned to a crisp. In a second home, a recent purchase from the store was concealed in a washtnb that contained corn cobs.
