BUILDING Bids Too High; Must Come Within Money Allotted Checks—$304,000 worth of them —were being distributed In Kossuth county this week. The money was the second payment on the 193S corn-hog contracts, and to say it was welcome would be putting the matter in altogether too mild terms. Three different batches of checks arrived, and the county committee jumped in and sent out bales of notices right away. Distribution began last Friday, continued through Saturday, and will be wound up for the most part this week. Swea City and Ledyard was the schedule for Monday and Tltonka and Wesley were getting checks today. After today, all checks will be handled through Algona. If a farmer does not have an area equal to 15 percent of his sol depleting bale seeded to a legunv crop be -can pltr* uadue.any-iaa} grain crop'before June IS, 1836, and follow with a legume crop before Sept. 15, 1036, and qualify tot class 1 payments, the committee states. Regarding the checks, anyone who has received a notice and has not got hia check can obtain it at Algona on Wednesday, May 20, and any time thereafter. The Algona postofTice building is still a matter of conjecture, and it may be that the building will not be erected this year at least.

It la hoped that bid* may be received which will permit the award of a contract for the construction of the building within the funds made available by legislation."

He evidently had suffered a stroke of appolexy and had fallen across the top of the stove. His hand went through the opening on top of the stove and into the red hot ashes. His hand was burned off, and the clothes were burned from most of his body, searing his flesh. He was dead when dlscov- red. Death, or at least uncon- ciousness kept him from any pos- Ible suffering from the fire. Mr. Yemans cared for his moth- r for many years until her death about 12 years ago at the age of 100 years lacking a few months. A few rears later the old Yeman house, a andmark, was burned down and since then Ed lived In a small house he erected on the property. A. Flaher, who married Florence Madson, discovered the remains of Ed slowly burning in this house about 6 O'clock Sunday. Ed worked for many years In the J. J.
