Algona 21-23 Not having had previous occasion to do so, we wish to welcome Harold dark, on behalf P* this newspaper, to the publishing; circle* of Kossuth county. As a son of Frank Clark, formerly of the Advance, he Is no stranger to the territory; bat M a publisher in his own right, he Is entering a new era and a new community, Bancroft Harold Is a most personable young man, with newspaper experience aplenty.

Our own modesty prevents going into the Algona field, but although we get cussed and discussed by the other boys at times, and although competition keeps us all akicklng, we still hope we're not as bad as those fellows in Leavenworth or Alcatraz. Well, anyway, Harold, welcome back to Kossuth, and may yon and Mrs. Clark find a splendid field, a fine community in which to live, and the greatest county In the United States —aided and abetted by a good bunch of fellow newspapermen. months In Germany, returned last week Monday and has been visiting at the Mrs. Trlna Wlese home.
