A complete check had not been made, and the 16,000 figure was about the average guess of those questioned. On Saturday one of the largest crowds In the fair grounds history passed the portals, with some 12,000 going through the gates. On Sunday as Iowa sweltered In temperatures of well over 100 degrees, the attendance hit the skids and drop- lied to around a 4,000 tofal.

In addition to the above mentioned floats, credit must be given to a number of other floats which represented an untold amount of work. Bjustrom's had as attractive and humorous a float as the parade offered, The State Theatre had two floats, each of great Interest and much work, the Elite Millinery's entry caused unusual comment, Pratt's Electric had five units in the line of march, and the Call Theatre had a very neat entry. There were others—the Creamery, the Kossuth Motor, and other loca) automblle dealers—and the Algona Military and Algona high school bands should not be omitted. The parade took 40 minutes to pass any given point on the line of march. Weather Turns Torrid Although the weather on Saturday was warm, it still enabled the crowds to enjoy themselves as It hovered just under the 100 degree mark. On Sunday, however, the sun poured down a blaze of Intense heat that withered even the strongest of wills and temperaments, as it zoomed to 107 for a season's record, and one of the hottest days here in history. The grandstand program was moat interesting. Aigona defeated Bancroft in a fine baseball game played Saturday afternoon, and the chariot races proved a real attraction. Fireworks climaxed the program both evenings. HALTATBORDER Visa Enables Her to Re turn After Question of Citizenship Mrs. Fred Schoby, from near Algona, who was detained at the United States and Canada border when she started to return from a funeral at Edmonton, Alberta. Canada, was back in Kossuth county this week—and as she looked at the temperature and thought of the nice, cool climate of Edmonton, wasn't quite sure whether or not she was glad to be home. Mrs, Schoby was given permission to cross the line when a necessary visa was received there. Mrs. Schoby expressed her thanks to local business men who provided the necessary Identification. She stated that she is still not a bona fide citizen of the U. S. ac- Jul~that she has permlsslontoHve IICTR. However, every time she crosses the line, she will have to obtain a visa for her return. It seems that the chief obstacle aris- ng was not on the Canadian side of the (ine but on the U. S. side, when she made un attempt to re- urn recently. Hearing Mrs. Schoby tell about he coolness of Edmonton almost ntitlea her to u membership in the "dmonton Chamber of Commerce. Emm'burg Man Plans Institute Scaffolding Breaks.

Wet Down Chicks On Market Trip Portland: A farm lady, near Burt, put chickens in a sack and was going to send them to town that evening. The chickens seemed rather warm, so the kind hearted lady poured a pail of water on them— just to cool them. When her husband reached Burt, he innocently t'icktid up the wet sack and carried it into Selby's Produce. The bag was opened—and out jumped four wuter-soaked hens. The lady's husband gasped in astonishment, and the proprietor burst out laughing. "Ho. Ho. This is a good one! In all my life I've never had a customer that wet her hens so they'd weigh more." The husband, of course, assured him that it was u silly notion of his wife, whereupon the proprietor paid him full price for the hens, plus the water and a good laugh.

MAGIC BREW OF 3 INDIANS PUTS THEMJNTO JAIL One Swig for $10 Had Curing Powers—But 1,000 En joy Free Watermelon Feed At LuVerne, Fri. LuVerne: On Friday evening about one thousand accepted Miss Anna Murray's invitation to call at the Corner Store, which she has recently taken over, und have a treat of watermelon. The store, the 'ormer Lichty & Ross general store ins been carried on by that firm for the past 25 years. Mr. Ross iioved to Hum,boldt about 15 years ugo and the store has been managed by J. L. Lichty. Mr. Lichty re •eived the appointment as LuVerne >ostmaster in April and took over hose duties June 1st. Miss Mur- iiy has been employed as clerk in he store for several years and she will be assisted by Hurry Lichty .nd Benona Neal. With the arrest of three men. describing themselves as American Indians, northern Iowa authorities believe they have solved the com- p/aints coming in regarding the selling of "Mystic Herbs" costing !10 per sack. Several residents of southern Kossuth county were among those taken into camp by the Tndlans, it was reported. They were charged with illegal possession of liquor at Clarion, after their arrest. It seems the racket worked this way. They first convinced their prospects that the Mystic Herbs, which they sold for $10 a sack, had wonderful healing powers if properly mixed. Part of the secret formula was to see that herbs were mixed with alcohol, the brew of which made the medicine. The brew was said to cure any ailment except the headache which followed Several of the victims who made complaints said the Indians had an dea that had temporary effects on any ailments, but they felt $10 a iack for the herbs was a bit too ugh. even with the alcohol thrown nto the brew. NEARLY RECORD BREAKING HEAT BAKESCOUNTRY No Prostration Reported; No Sign of Break in Weather EFFECT ON CROPS MAY BE SERIOUS Two days of heat well over the 100 degree mark boiled Kossuth county In a tropical haze, Sunday and Monday, and indications for oday and tomorrow were that the leal would be just as bad.

No Politeness LuVerne: A LuVerne lad accompanied his mother when she attended a. sale at un Algona store one day last week. While waiting for her he stood at the door and opened it for the customers who were entering or leaving. He reports that out of more than forty for whonx he performed this service only one thanked him. Treating Street To Lay Dust The double block north of the oe Harig corner between Lucas nd Elm streets deserves credit for the initial movement to lay the dust this year un account of the torn up condition of the town and the fact that side streets are being uted more. Neighbors in the block mcntiuned talked about having the work done, but Mrs. Henry Aman i:ol out und canvassed the block to get the project going and now the it reel hus been treated with cii- cium chloride which lays the dual find is a boon to housewives. The c-ity will j)ut the calcium chloride i.n the streets if the property own- era will pay for the inatmul, which may be purchased at a small cost per from Kow that the ball hu* started rolling it remains for others, to follow suit. State St. Paving Through This Week The paving of State Street will be finished up this week, it was stated Monday, as the paving crew moved uj) tin north side of State toward its goal. At the same time, work began on Tilling in between curbs and the old sidewalks. IB several spots, entirely new .sidewalks have been put in, and are certainly an improvement. Among those with the new sidewalks are the Iowa State Bank, Haggard & Peterson <Moe & Sjogren grocery). H. R. Sorensen & Co., and Foster's Furniture. There is also some finishing on :he paving to be done before the .street can be used, but it won't be long now. i * The hottest temperature recorded here in recent years Is a record of HO dogrpps, chalked up two years ngo this summer. Effect on Crop* A. L. Brown, cpunty agent, stated Tuesday morning that oats could not help but be damaged from tne intense and sudden heat wave, as they \vould be hurried along too fast. Another day or two and they will have to be cut at once, he said. Corn has not been hurt very much in the past few days, but it will be if the terrific heat keeps up, he said. In the meantime, a word of warning was added as to care of livestock and horses, who suffer terribly If not properly cared for. An example set by I. Wernert Is one that should be passed along. Before he retired from farming and moved to Algona, Mr. Wernert made it a point to haul water to the field during the day for his i»TMs,,while they were working. With ptehty of water, homer can work better and there in less danger of their being prostrated by the h-ent. MrrtingN Postponed A number of meetings have been li<tsti>aiic<l because of the heat.
