Most Modern in Area The Kossuth building will be probably the most modernistic of any building In the city.

A half circle into the door way will be another new feature. The building will be completely fireproof, two stories high, ant 23 feet wide and 65 feet long. Geo L.

CITY FINANCIAL REPORT SHOWS $17,000 JUMP Expenses Gut Over $1,000 At The Same Time LIGHT PLANT HAS $8,000 INCREASE If you were a stockholder in a concern that increased its gross business during the past year by name $17,000, and at. the same time kept its expenses down to $1,000 less than the preceding year, you'd probably feel you were connected with a flourishing organization. Well, whether you know it or not, you are. We refer to the City of Algona, and every resident and taxpayer of the city is a stockholder in the concern. FUcal Yearn Compared A comparison of the annual statements of March 31, 1935, and of March 31, 1936, reveals some interesting information. For instance the grand total of receipts increased considerably as below: Receipts, 1935—$134,607.29. Receipts, 1936—4151.952.14. Then let us take a look at the total expenditures during ihe same periods. The above figures are for the fiscal years which end on March 31, 183S, and March 31, 1936. Electric Receipt* Uuiii Receipts of the electric light plant again show an increase. The Mtle of power, and other sources of income brought in $75,784.33 in the 1830 year, while the new report •hows that the proceeds jumped to And ju*t to prove bow solvent the city is, it might interest you to * know that there was the amall sum of 1167,374.77 cash on band on Ifarcb 81, 1830, as compared with 1X87,188.18 the year before. We're not asking you to brag, understand, but you don't have to take a back wat for boaatera from any other community, either. MemoriafP. O.

MITCHELL of Fort Dodge visited In Algona Saturday in the interests of his candidacy for the democratic nomination for Governor of Iowa. Mr. Mitchell, who has many friends in Algona, is at present serving on the supreme bench of Iowa. He ir one of the flnn young men who have grown up at Ft Dodge. He was an aviator in the war and has spent his life in the legal profession. He is opposed for the nomination by Lieut. Gov. Kraschel. Mitchell is the better man. UNION TOP. GIRL IN SCHOOL HAS NARROW ESCAPE Lightning Strikes School, Splinter Missed Reibhoff Girl When Clarice Reibhoff. small daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Reibhoff, stooped over to pickup something from the floor in district 2 school, Union township, abe probably saved her life. ^ At that moment, last Friday morning about 11 a. m., a bolt of lightning struck the school house, tore boards from the siding, and sent a large splinter across the room directly In the path of which Clarice would have been sitting, had she been erect. The teacher, Adrla Peterson, and the five pupils were stunned by the terrible thock, nnd needless to say, school was dismissed for the day. Some repairs on the school will be necessary. However, it did not burn, which was fortunate also. Gardner Cowles and Harvey Ingham, Iowa's foremost newspaper men, came up from Des Moines last Thursday and spent a day visiting with old Algona friends, with whom they have never lost touch since go- Ing to Des Moines 35 years ago. During the years, Mr. Cowles as publisher and Mr. Ingham, editor, the Register and Tribune have grown to be among the big and prosperous papers of the middle west. Of late years Mr. Cowles' two sons and other younger men have taken much of the work and responsibility from their shoulders, and left them leisure to travel and enjoy life. A few months ago the Register and Tribune Company bought the Minneapolis Star, lead"- ing Minneapolis daily, and expects to make it one of the great papers of the middle west. Mr. and Mrs. Cowles have recently returned from a trip to Honolulu, California, Panama Canal Zone and Washington, D. C., and Mr. and Mrs. Ingham spent most of the winter in California and the southwest. Both men are carrying their years very gracefully and enjoy nothing more than a visit with i their many friends in Algona, who' are always glad to welcome them to ' the old home town, where they started out in the newspaper business, Mr. Ingham as editor of the Algona Upper Des Moines and Mr. Cowles as a partner of the late Milton Starr in, the old Algona Republican. VOL. :U.—NO. 21 Weber Boy, 4M Killed by Truck At Livermore The young son of Mr. and Mrs. Weber of Livermore was killed on Monday afternoon when he was struck by a gravel truck driven by Edward Anderson, who is in the employ of Contractor Bill Williams.

It Is understood that Anderson swerved his truck to avoid the child, but he kept running and was caught and crushed beneath the back wheels. He was taken immediately to Fort Dodge and died in a hospital there within two hours. The parents of the child moved to Livermore about two months ago and the father operates a cream station. They have one other child. Anderson, driver of the truck, is the step-son of Eric Anderson, the marshal of Livermore. A coroner's inquest was set for today, Tuesday.

The line of march from the auditorium to the cemetery may have to be changed PRIMARY COMES MONDAY, JUNE 1 Below We List Some of the Candidates to be Voted For Interest in Dickinson Vote Next Monday, June 1, is the date of the primary election in Iowa and Kossuth county voters should take time off from their work and go to the polls. It is difficult to tell Just how Kossuth county will line up. Of course the greater interest here is in Senator Dickinson's vote in his home county. It Is thought he will carry the county over Brookhart, his leading opponent, but you never can tell. It Is thought that he will get the required 35 per cent in the state and the nomination. The four other republican candidates are liable to be far in the rear. Vote for Dickinson There can be no question that Senator Dickinson is the leading republican candidate for the senate In the primary next Monday, and his home county is expected to give him a good lead In the voting. Senator Dickinson, who Is one of the recognized dark horse leaders for the republican nomination for president, has placed Algona and Iowa on the political map in a national way. Algona and Kossuth county people should recognize the distinction we have been given through Senator Dickinson. Herring Favored Over Utterback Governor Herring and Congressman Utterback are fighting for the democratic nomination. Both are able men with large| followings but the fact that Utterback is an old- time prohibitionist will not do him any good with the democrats it Is thought. Call for Governor The republican candidates for governor are Geo. R. Call, J. M Grimes and Geo. A. Wilson. Apparently all good men, but Kossuth county should give Mr. Call the preference, as he is well qualified and also as he is a native of Algona, where his grandfather, Asa C. Hazing of Durwood Baker By Two High School Boys To Be Taken to the Courts Voting Beqins in Contest To Win a 10-Day Trip , was one of the founders of the town. Kossuth Should be for Mitchell The democrats have the present lieutenant governor, N. C. Kras chol and Richard Mitchell of For Dodge to choose from as their can didate for governor. Mr. Mltchel is at present on the state suprom bench. He is a neighbor of our and .the better man and should b Algona Stores Will Close Memorial Day/ Saturday/ May 30 All stores will close all day Memorial Day, except Grocery and Drug Stores, which will remain open till 10 o'clack a. in. Uroeer- ies will be closed for the balance of the day, but the drug stoi-es will open again at four o'clock. Stores Will Be Open Friday Evening/ May 29 All stores will keep regular Saturday evening hours on Friday evening, May 29, the evening preceding Memorial Day. This will give opportunity for those unahle to do their trading in the day time to do so in the evening. This action is recommended by the Business Men's Council of the Algona Community Club John Devlne Boni In Kouttth John Devlne of Humbo'dt count} is one of the republican candidates for secretary of state, who Is well qualified for the office and will probably get H good vote in Kos suth, where he was born. He has been one of the most prominent men in Humboldt for many y°ars and has a large following. MM. Alex Miller, the present secretary of state, is the leat'ing candidate on the democrat ticket. Hanson for Auditor Frank M. Hanson of Garner is another neighbor who is candidate For auditor of state on the repub- icun ticket, and will doubtless be favored by Kossuth county voters. Tliumlm Down on \\Vnnian Leo Wegman, the present treasur- T of state Is the only candidate on he democrat ticket. We all know Wegman and his sale of flve per cent bonds. Frank L. Williams of Cedar Rapids will be his opponent on the republican ticket, and it is o be hoped will win in the fall. Congressional Candidate* For congress, Fred Oilchmt, present congressman, is unopposed on the republican ticket. He has nude a good record. There are two candidates for the democratic nomination, Andrew Bell of Denson and Ray Murray of Buffalo Center. Both apparently are good men. Murray is at present secretary of agriculture. For State Senate H. E. Narey of Spirit Lake is the republican candidate for state senator and Lester Gillette of the same town is the democrat candidate. Both are unopposed. The Representative Fight For representative from Kossuth, I Tice Brack of Ledyard is the republican candidate with no opposition for the nomination. The democrat candidates are Geo. D. Moulton of Ledyard and C. H. Ostwinkle of Algona. Four Candidates for Auditor For county offices there will be some sharp tights. For auditor, E. C. Hovey and E. N. Taylor are opposing candidates on the republican ticket. E. J. Butler, present popular auditor is opposed by C. R. Janviin for the nomination oil the democratic ticket. Three Candidates for Treasurer For treasurer, C. W. Pearson is unopposed for the republican nomination and M. J. Duffy, the present treasurer, is being opposed by R. S. Blossom for the democratic nomination. All good men. Mrs. McEvov Is Opposed For clerk of courts, Ira Kohl is unopposed for the republican nomination, and Mrs. McEvoy, present clerk, is being opposed by Duke Kinsey for the democratic nomination. Hot Fight for Sheriff The tights in both parties for the nomination for sheriff has been spirited. The present sheriff. Carl Dahihauser, is being opposed by his former deputy, Casey Losa, for the democratic nomination. The republican candidates are A. J. Berens of Bancroft and Gilbert Hargreaves of Algona. All of these candidates ahe good men and the fur has been flying during the past few weeks with the outcome iii doubt.

According to his parents, Durwood suffered cuts about his jaw and received a smashed nose and two black eyes. The sight of his left eye Is, as yet, impaired and causes him much pain. Officers who investigated said they learned the attack occurred after the high school class play, as Durwood, a senior, ran from a car to the back door of his home. Several cars had followed the one he occupied to the Baker home and two others were parked near there when he arrived. Five or six boys participated in the struggle with Durwood and dragged him, bleeding from the mouth and nose, to the front of his home and then to the running board of a waiting car. Ten or twelve other boys stood on the side-lines hooting and rushing In to take part at different times. Night Officer Valentine happened on the scene at that moment and intervened when he saw th» victim was In no condition to go for a ride. No names were taken by Valentin as Durwood told him he knew all the boys. After several minutes of hot argument the boys were sent on their way and Durwood was taken in the house. The boys were Juniors who Intended to take Durwood on a "ride" an part of the hazing given the senior boys each year by the juniors.

Meredith, chairman of the lowu Old Age Assistance Commission. After that date, a penalty of one percent per niuuth will attach. Mrs. Meredith points out that all persons residing in Iowa, who are citizens of the United .States and 21 years of age and upwards, except inmates of stale anU county institutions, are required by law to pay the annual old age assistance tax of two dollars. She also emphasizes Uie fuel that every old age tax payment of $2.00 by an lowan means $4.00 to help an additional number of needy Iowa aged in their declining years, because of the fact that the federal foverr.ment is now matching Iowa's peub'ur fuiiuj, doll ir for dollar.
