' *^ After leading at the half, 18 to 8, with everything in favor of Algona. to ail around play, LuVerne came tack at the start of the second half to throw a good scare Into Mercer's men. Dick PO& connected for a field goal to boost the lead, and a moment later Stewart went out on personal fouls. Parrell made the point good. Mush Bruns fouled, and Blggings got hot with a nice toss to run the score 21 to 11. Bob Post kept things even with another goal, and then Blggihgi connected ior two ana Parrell for one. putting the score «t<33 to 17, at wnkfc time Attona tho^gt It wise to t«Xe time out. MORE 8POHT8! Further sports news of the past week will be found on the back page of this issue. Medln counted a noint on Wermer- sert's foul, but McClelian picked up a point for LuVerne, looping a goal, bringing the score to 24 to 21, the closest to the lead that the south Kossuth team came. Bob Post and Pldo Medln both connected for shots before the third quarter ended. Boettcher, substituting, scored, and Medin and Bob Post followed at the opening of the fourth quarter, in a series of tallies, giving Algona a substantial lead. LuVerne took time out. Parrell kept his team in the contest with a field goal, and Bob Post went out on fouls in contacting Mc- Clelian, who failed to score the gift throw. Anderson, a LuVerne sub, committed a personal foul, but Dick Post couldn't find the net, and the game went on. Parrell connected again with a pretty, looping shct, and Lynk scored one for Algona en McClellan's foul. Boettcher committed u personal foul, but Lu- Verne failed to convert, and Parrell .cored the final field goal of the game. In spots, Algona looked good. For the most part, the team lacked polish, and were on the defense plenty of the lime, even against a smaller club. However, tfie Bulldogs were out to handle the ball, not run up a score, and LuVerne's scrappy quint kept them msy at it. Algona plays Eagle Grove here, Friday night.

Mr. Wilson, who w*= one of the most genial men, was rated one of the best bakers in Iowa. He and Mrs. Wilson had built up a splen- ilid baking business of their own since Mr. Wils-.n had left hb- place In the Algona Bakery, where he was engageJ wah his brother, Lewis, now of Mason City. Mr. WiUon was afflicted witn dropsy, which affected his heart, and which had kept him in bed for the past summer during which time Mrs, Wilson bravely carried on the bakery business. George Wilson was born at Galena, Ills., May 12, 1872. George came to Perry, Iowa, with his parents In 'he- year, 1882, and remained on the farm until the age of 16 years. He then went to Des Moines where he learned to be a baker.

The death of Mrs. R. K Jeansen a' Los Angeles, California, at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Oscar Johnson, brings forth memories of early day Immigration into the north end of Koa- suth. particularly Swea and Eagle townships. When Captain R. E. Jeansen came to this vicinity in 1860, as an agent of the American Emigrant Co., of New York, he was influential in bringing to northwest Kossuth many emigrants from Sweden. The JeMwena belonged to the Swedish aristocracy, and built * mansion on to true style, with fine horses, footmen, cabmen, servants of every kind, but despite this aristocratic method of living, they were kind and courteous. Swen City. They did all they could to make their countrymen happy In their new homes, and many northwest Kosnuth families today were founded by the sturdy Swedish emigrants that Captain Jeansen obtained locations for in this county. The Emigrant Co. built a house known as the Company House, and It was in this house that settlers stayer until they had time to get their own homes built. At one time as many as 18 families lived at th« Company Houso. This building burned down about five years ago. At that time it was occupied by the lat* Moodie Simpson, and a new house was built in its place. Mrs. Jeansen is survived by two daughters, Mrs. O. Johnton of Callfoi nla, Mn. A. H. Tuttle of Oes Moinee «od-two sons, Robert and-BOH of Ix Angeles. Mr. Jeansen died severa years ago. Mrs. Tuttle frequently vis- Its at the Victor Eckholm home a You Wouldn't Set Pins Either II. D. "Shorty" Graham, pin setter at the Barry bowling alleys, rushed Into the place, Tuesday afternoon, and, gasping for breeth, told Bill Barry "I can't set P ln » tonight." Bill, naturally, wanted to know why and wherefore. "I am the father of twin boys," said Shorty. Bill agreed that was a mighty good reason for not setting pins. Before he rushed ont the front door, however, he stopped long enough to tell the boys that Mrs. Graham and the twins were lining nicely.

Mrs. Bodies, a prominent Irvington •woman, and her husband, and two children, Kenneth and Joyce, entered the house. Mrs. Bockes started to build a fire In the kitchen range. As they had been gone from home over two hours, and there had been no Ore in the Uove sines breakfast, there was no thought In mind that there were any sparks in the stove. However the supposition is now that « small fftootro^ wood-dropped, through the grate into the ash pan and when the kerosene touched the apark the explosion occurred. A five gallon kerosene can was caved in by the blast and Uie two gallons in the can Ignited, spreading the flames. Mrs. Bockes' clothing caught flre, and Mr. Bockes, who was changing his clothes, preparatory to doing some work rushed to her assistance. Neighbor* Fight Flame* Calling neighbors. Mr. Bockes, witb .heir help, fought the flame*. Barney ?ranki irushed his flre extinguisher to the plnije, keeping the names down intil the Algona department arrived. Chief Oscar Anderson, Frank Kohlhaas and Ralph Elbert made the run. The nterior cf the kitchen was badly burned and damage done to other rooms und u store room, but the names did not get out of the house, and it was not completely destroyed as reported in a dally paoer. The loss was fully covered by insurance. The fact that Mr Bockes shut all the doors tightly helped to tave tlw> building. Mrs. Hockes was rushed to the Plathe liunif, where she waa given first aid, and tlitn brought to u hospital here. The hospital reported her as resting as easily as possible under the pain of her severe burns. DANGER!
