The Algona Upper Des Moines, Algonty Iowa, July 28,1936 PUT CHEMICAL ONFENTON'S BUSYSTREFTS 17 Tons of Dust Settling Calcium Chloride Used For Task Fen ton: Fenton business men purchased 1? tons of calcium chloride last week and It was applied to the streets in the business district and other resident streets having heavy traffic. Calcium chloride is a dust-settling chemical and the streets are first dampened and the calcium chloride is then scattered by means of a seeder on the streets. In a short time the chemical is dissolved caused by the moisture in the air and the streets appear wet at ait times. It cost approximately $40 a block for the business district and $14 or so for the residence block. Residents need not apply the chemical unless they prefer, but can secure it until the supply is gone. The cost of applying is very reasonable.

Naked Bathers "I will not try to give each day In detail, but a week ago I took two loads to the east seashore, 18 In all. We pack the children in the back seat like sardines. They said it was a long way but was only eight miles and that's not so far for Americans. On Thursday I took our load to the west coast of Denmark, driving over 80 miles. The seashore is so hard and smooth that we drove along the shore for miles. Just at the edge of the water there is a natural road bed from 200 to BOO feet wide between the water and the banks. In rough weather the waves come clear up to the banks. The bathers were all bathing along the shore. I will reserve telling about the sights as some of it would not look good in print. Christine thought we had better go for the country, where only the animals go naked. Likes Danish Milk "We are making a lot of fashionable calls. We are always asked to drink coffee and eat pastry, which is too much for me. I refuse most of it and am generally able to get a glass of milk. Lars Enjoys Fourth In Denmark "We spent the Fourth at the Danish-American Park, in Retails Hills, from where we had a good trip around the Hills before the celebration started, which was lucky as it is all outdoors and when it was about half through it started to rain, so we had to leave as we were sitting on the ground which is all covered with heather. Aak Archie Hutchison, he knows what that is. We finished up our Fourth celebration at Aalborg In the evening. Th'.« is a town of about 60,000 inhabitants, and lies on the ahore of Hlme- fjorden, the largest river in Denmark. Large ships ply through between the east and west ueas. They had speakers and music during the celebration of the evening. There was one hour of old time American music that sounded mighty good.

Trains Editor of Algona Upper Des Moines, Dear Sir: In last week's column by the Man About Town, he made some comment about having difficulty In finding any one who had taken a trip on a train in recent times. The last ride he had taken was as far back as 1924. After my recent experience this seemed rather amusing to me. About two weeks ago I travelled from Chicago to Cedar Rapids on a train. I made the trip through the heat of the day, but rode In the greatest comfort In an air-conditioned coach. This train was made up of 15 coaches and everyone of them was full. Upon inquiry I learned that this was but one of twenty such trains leaving for the west from that one terminal every twenty-four hours. There are at least ten trains, going north every day as well. This terminal is but one of many In Chicago. A day or so ago Edwin C. Hill told over the radio that an eastern railroad has reported an increase In passenger business of 32 percent over the business for the srw..e month a year ago. So It Is evident frrmny people ate riding on the trains even if the Man About Town hasn't found them.—Mrs. A. A. Bishop, Algona. Mrs. Emilie Warmbler has been quite ill at her home. She Is under the care of a trained nurse. PLUMBING, HEATING, SHEET METAL, SPOUTING AND PUMP A complete stock with experienced Service for Jobs, large or small.
