On the trip, be and Mrs. Miller visited the Fort Worth Centennial San Antonio, and other places on this side of the line, and went into Mexico as far as Monterey. Among other novel experiences enjoyed was that of riding a burro around on side trips to points of interest in Mexico. With all due ceremonie.4, in which Algona folks played a prominent part, the connecting strip of paved highway on U. S. 169 between Humboldt and Algona was opened last Thursday afternoon. A delegation of business men, including Milton Norton, president of the local Chamber of Commerce, and O. S. Reiley, secretary, met similar delegations from Humboldt nnd Fort Dodge at St. Joe, and proceeded to the junction of highways 169 and 10, near Humbdldt, where feminine representatives of the three communities held a ribbon that was severed by O. J. Ditto of the state highway commission, as the pavement was officially opened. Humboldt Hospitable Humboldt, as the host city, proved its hospitality in many ways. After the pavement dedication ceremonies, many of the delegates adjourned before the banquet to the Mineral Springs Coco-Cola Bottling works of Humboldt, where R. C. Bellows acted as host to the assembled group, nnd good fellowship prevailed between the delegates from the various cities, members of the highway commission and others. Between 400 and BOO men and women from the three cities of Humboldt, Port Dodge ana Algona attended the evening banquet, at which O. S. Reiley of Algona was the toastmaster. Speaking frankly, the only blemish on the entire program of festivities, was the small attendance from Algona. Less than 20 busniess and professional men from our own city attended the affair. Justice Richard F. Mitchell of the Iowa Supreme Court was the guesl speaker of the evening.

An invitation to all folks Irrespective of whether they live In the Whittemore community or not, to attend the meeting, has been made.

The jury found the defendants guttty on all of the counts, and they were immediately sentenced to two years' imprisoment and $10,000 fine each.
