Haa Retired After Making a Fortune in Fruit Ranch ing in Colorado Many old friends of the Milton Starr lamfly were jfleaaed on Monday to ret and two children, who are now ff at Austin, Colorado. The MiWon *UHfr family left Algona la iWi, M J*"?*!* 8 ?;.. Mr. Starr had been the talented editor of the old Algona Repub- Ijean and later the Upper Dea ttolnet- wspubllcan after the consolidation of the two old papers. At the time of his departure he owned a half interest in the paper with J. w. Haggard. His interest was sold to J. W. Shearer, who later sold to the late Sid J. Backus, the latter selling to RUM Waller after twenty yean joint ownership with Mr. Haggard. The move to Colorado was made by the Starr family in the in- est of health. They bought a fruit ranch on the western slope and prospered. There were three boys and one «irl in the family. Richard, the second boy, died shortly after the family moved west. Helen went to the Congres- sloal Library in Washington, D. C., •where she held a position for some years, going from there to the James •J. Hill Memorial Library in St .Paul some twenty yean ago. She is now th« head librarian drawing a salary of $6,000 per year. Mr. and Mrs. Starr have now been dead for some years, •and their fruit ranch has been carried •on by their sons, Robert and Arthur. Arthur, the younger, who is still unmarried, is active in the raising of apples and he and Robert own several big fruit ranches. Robert has retired from active ranch work, having made a fortune in fruit raising. He and his family were on their way home from Wisconsin, where they had been for a visit with Mrs. Starr's parent*, afterwards attending the World's Fair in Chicago. Former Algona Man Writes From West M. Bonder, who for some years has mad* hh home in Al«ona, writes from p»io Alto, California, where he and his wife have been located for some months. Mr. Bonder is an aeronautical engineer and has help- in the building of the XT. S. Macon, a dirigible Just recently completed as we understand it. Mr. Bonder only last summer was married to Miss France* Gorman, the charming daughter of one of the well known families of Prairie township, Kossuth county. They have been living at Sunnyvale, the big government air field where the Macon was constructed. Mr. Bonder's letter follows: 'Algona Upper Dea Molnes: Will you kinder send our paper to 407 Cowper street, Palo Alto, California, our new address. My wife and I look forward each week to receiving the Upper Des Molnes, because it so thoroughly cover the general news of interest in Algona and Kossuth county. At the present time we are studying the qualifications of the political candidates running for state and county offices, so that we can cast intelligent absentee votes. My wife likes it out here very much, but she cannot forget her home in Prairie township, nor her many friends in and around Algona. The U. S. . Macon airship is doing considerable flying out here. She can cover a large area of the Pacific ocean with very little cost in comparison to a cruiser and in very much shorter time. I believe that the airship cannot be replaced for long distance scouting in tune of war or peace. Best regards to our friends and acquaintances In Kossuth county. Very truly yours, Frank M. Bondor." Segrid Strom, Lillian Kressin and Lulu Kohl were guests over the week end at the Walter Ohm home in Fenton. C. W.

To the Voters of Kossuth County During the past several months, I have attempted to meet as many people as possible in our county. Naturally, I have not been able to see everyone, which I regret. In my campaign for sheriff, I have refrained from dealing in personalities, and I seek election to the office with a pledge that, if elected, I will give the utmost in an impartial, fair and accurate administration of the office with less cost to the taxpayers than has been the case. Gilbert Hargreaves Candidate for Sheriff—Kossuth County Now Buying Scrap Iron $3*oo per ton For Country Mixed Iron Also buy Batteries, Copper, Brass, Aluminum, etc. Fort Dodge Iron & Metal Co. POET DODGE, IOWA SCHOBYfor Representative Platform I believe taxes should be levied according to ability to pay. The general sales tax collects from the poor to benefit the rich. I stand for the repeal of the aalea tax. I believe Iowa should care well for the aged poor, but I am opposed to a tax on everyone alike to finance it. Moat other states draw their old age pension funds from the general state fund. Iowa Should do the same if we are to hare a oenalon srs- tem. This would make the rich pay their share instead of taxing rich and poor by the same head tax, which violates the principle of ability to pay. I am opposed to the creation of new boards and bureaus when the work might just aa well be done by existing agencies, thus saving needleas expenae. Under present conditions and through then* tunes I believe the state government should be conducted aa we conduct private businesses—on a pay aa we go baste, with the creation of no new obligations.
