Qead Tbe Want Ado—It Pays The five year old child of John Nordstrom had been struck by an automobile driven by Francis Me Mahon, on west McGregor street The little one suffered a fracturec skull, and was in a dangerous con dition. Mr. McMahon did not stop his car and upon being found stat ed he had been unaware that h had struck the child who had been playing in the street. It had been dark and upon making the turn from Rldgley to McGregor, th lights were not thrown directly on the street, hence the accident which It was hoped would not prov fatal. • • • Wellendorf & Son had won a rea distinction for Kossuth county a the state fair held at Des Moines when they had taken first and jun lor championship In the under yea old boar class, with 72 entries. The had also taken seventh with an other pig in the same class. Thes two were the only ones they show ed and their winnings were remarkable.

Harvey had a host of good friends here In this section, where 'he was born and where he spent moat of bin lite. For a number of years he was editor of the Upper Des Moines, one of the leading republican papers of northern Iowa. • • • A. M. Jaaperaon had torn down his old office building and feed store on south Dodge street and began the erection of a fine two story brick structure. The lower rooms were to be used for store purposes and the second story to be arranged for a lodge room. Mr. Jasperson expected to put up a modern first class building and had numerous applications from parties who wished to rent. • • « Mr. and Mrs. Fred Corey had spent most of the previous week In Des Moinea visiting at the home of Mr. Corey's brother, A.

Every effort was being made by the health Qffieera to prevent a spread of the disease. • • • Counterfeit dollars or unusually excellent workmanship were said to have been in circulation in Minnesota. The coin could not be detected except In weight. They rang true when thrown on wood or stone and the milling on the edge was so substantial that it could not be cut as most counterfeits, and the reproduction of faces and lettering was perfect beyond all possibility of detection. The coin was dated 1881. It weighed very little more than half an ounce, while a genuine silver dollar weighed a full ounce. The material seemed to be of lead and zinc. Government authorities were said to be investigating. • • • The 1916 model girl of which Algona had plenty was described 20 years ago as a front page story: "The old fashioned girl who used to lean up against the family ironing board and make her own bed is getting as hard to locate as a bar of non-floating soap in a bath tub. You can ask a girl of the I'.llo model to rinse the dinner dishes or hang out the clothes and she will give you a look that will curdle a pail of milk. It has gotten so nowadays, that all a girl wants to do is to feed fudge into her face and try out a consignment of short skirts. The girl who isn't allowed to entertain a houseful of spindle legged suitors and beat a piano into coma six evenings a week while mother looks pleasant and does up the work is as hooeleKsly outclassed in the social whirl as a Percheron draft horse in a free fur all trot. No girl is considered up-to-date unless she knows ever} traveling man that hits the burg and indulges love's young dream by carrying on perfumttl correspondence. \ girl wb".'* head is full of W-cent licti'm ai J the next b-irjjitin sale of gauze will r.ever shave to shoo a line of cligil-ie bachelc iv off the front sloop with a bro; i i for fear that sonubody will dr.»;.f her up to the ullur in a lull- vt'ii and a rented limousine. Yet. some people wonder why men don't ai-rry" Well, the gals hal 'em guessing in those I'HVS, evidently the writer of the above was disappointed in love.
