A BLIZZARD brought 10 inches of snow and sub-zero weather Into Kossuth county last Thursday night, and Friday morning. The northbound Northwestern train was cancelled and no Northwestern trains ran until Saturday. County plows went Into action as soon as the snow stopped, and although most main roads had been cleared, there were still side roads to be opened. State highways were opened within 24 hours. * • * WITH THE disappearance from the city of a young- man, sought for questioning in the attempted attack and slugging of Glendora Burbank, Algona girl, before Christmas time, local officers believe they have solved that case, and also another similar that happened some time before. The youth has a case pending against himself If he returns here, officers said. They did not divulge his name. . * * * JESSE LASHBUOOK, driver of the city snowplow, estimates that each time he clears the city's streets after a snow, he drives about 40 miles. * * • DONATIONS OF $*3 to date have resulted in a healthy start for the drive to provide, funds with which to' feed grade school children who otherwise have no hot food at noon.

H. W. Miller, In district court Monday. A charge of Addition of two new passenger trains to the present schedule o The Milwaukee Road to make day runs-between Chicago and polntf west of Algona, appeared likely after a discussion of the matte between representatives of the rail road and O. S. Relley of the Al gona Chamber of Commerce. That the Milwaukee officials ha been thinking of stepping up thel present service seemed evident, Mi Relley said, after a conference wit them on that and other matters. To Help Children Another point that came up fo discussion was the fact that on of the Milwaukee freights has bee In the habit of stopping In the side track area from the depot west, between 4 and 5 p. m., and school children living north of the tracks have been compelled to climb over or under the trains to cross ^.the tracks. Milwaukee officials said they would issue orders to have the freight crew "break" the train at the crossing a block west of the depot, so that children could got by without trouble, and also cars Jackrabbit Has Poor Judgment A full-grown and misguided jHckrnbbit bounced throughi the window of Ed Larson's car, Sunday afternoon, and although IIP broke the window, did no further damage. Mr. Larson, who lives in the Four Corners neighborhood, was driving along In his usual manner when the Jackrabbit arrived. Mrs. Larson was struck on the side of the face by the animal, but her only Injury other than a few bumps, was a mouthful of shatterproof glass. Mr. Larson grabbed the Jackrabbit and threw him out of the car, then continued on his way.

Anton Jergenson, in April, 1988. The grand Jury, meeting th» last of the month, will undoubtedly act on his case. Stoner will be participating in the case for the second time. At the trial of Warren Dale, first . charged with the murder, Stoner was a witness called by the state In an effort to prove Dale guilty. County Attorney L. A. Winkel, nt that time, was named by the court to defend Dale and Indicated in his defense that he believed the witnesses for the state in the Dale trial were themselves guilty of connection with the crime. Old Warrant Did Job It was a coincidence that Stow* er happened to be arrested and the Jergenson case reopened. Stoner was arrested In Watetlo after a girl friend of his attem ed to cash a worthless check, deputy sheriff 1 p. m. Lotts Creek, center school, Saturday, Jan. 23, 1 p. m.

To Elect Committees Meetings will be held for the purpose of not only explaining the 1937 program, but to elect committees to carry on the work in the various townships. The county committee is hoping for a large attendance. Following the explanation of the program, farmers will be given an opportunity to sign applications for membership In the county agricultural conservation association. Signing the application merely indicates a desire to participate In the program, but does not bind one to any course of action. Individuals who sign applications for membership will be entitled to one vote for township directors. It is very important that farm- en attend this meeting because as soon as township directors are elected, the county committee will be chosen. The latter group must establish bases and corn acreage limits In February, and hope to be able to notify farmers of these figures early in March.

R. and the Presbyterian church. Burial was made at Hed- rlck. Two Day Trains Reinstatement of trains 3 and 14 were the runs discussed. They were formerly scheduled here at 7 a. m. eastbound anil 3 p. m. westbound. At present this section of Iowa Is served by the two Sioux trains, going east at 8:29 p. m, and west at 6:20 a. m. With railroads showing a steady increase In passenger business, It Is evident that day trains would really serve not only the public through northern Iowa, but also would stand to regain further added revenue with good day trains, running on a fairly fast schedule. If the Milwaukee does decide to reinstate the trains mentioned. It surely deserves not only credit but even greater support all along the line because of Us friendly gesture.

Union Slough "Approved", But Long Way To Go Yet Another step toward the possible, and much-hoped-for realization of the Union Slough Game Refuge spurred local conservationists onward. Tuesday, when telegrams from Senator Guy M. Gillette were received from Washington, read- Ing as follows: "Purchase Union Slough Approved Today." BUT—lest anyone get the wrong Idea, the telegram only told a small part of the story, and although it means a step forward toward the goal, it does NOT mean that the project is all settled. As explained here by one of the local boosters for the refuge, the approval was given by the Migratory Bird Refuge Commission, to the report of the appraisal figure of a J20 an acre base price for land in the area. The price was arrived at by representatives of the Biological Survey, here this summer. The Commission's "approval" merely puts a stamp of approval on the basis price of $20 an acre, and options as in existence at present. There are still a half dozen or so pieces of la/id NOT undt-r option and unless they can be lined up. the project is as fur from completion as ever. Neither docs it mean that all land in the urea will bring $20 an acre. Some of it has been appraised at much less than that. There is a total of about 900 acres in Portland and Ramsey township in the area sought. The unfortunate fuel of the situation is that it seems like the results are so hard to fulfill, when the mutter in question is one of a ladling, parm- anent improvement to the entire county—yet there art obstacles which seem almost insurmountable, mostly iu Kos- suUi, too.

Wednesday liftirltffc .--- - A Casey Loss, deputy sherfffrww Frank Oreen, Algona chief of po- Ice, went to Waterloo and brought Stoner back here. This (Thursday) morning Winkel said positively that Stoner would be charged with flrst degree murder. He had spent several days reviewing the ?ase before deciding on a course of action. From the Beginning The case broke here April 27, 1935, when Mrs. Anton Jergenson, 75, was found unconscious In her home, just north and west of the Kossuth hospital, suffering from effects of a terrible blow on. he back of the head. She later died as a result of the njurles. From the looks of the home, It was evident that a ntrug* gle had taken place. A sum of (2,000 was supposed to have been kept in the home wis missing. Warren Dale was arrested and eventually charged with the murder. He was found "not RuUty." During the trial, Stoner with Mr, and Mrs, Glen McVay, formed the bulwark of the witnesses called upon to testify by the state against Dale. At one time during the trial, * Winkel, as defense attorney, asked Mrs. McVay "Isn't it true that you and your husband and Harry Stoner planned this whole thing." Mrs. McVay's answer was "yes", but under cross-examination she changed her answer. Stoner's Girl Friend Arrested with Stoner at Waterloo was a girl calling herself Dorothy Appleby, 19 years old, Who was arrested when she tried to pass a worthless check, and then led police to Stoner. Stoner denied they were married, saying they were "just friends." Waterloo reports say the girl is said to be somewhat feeble-minded. After the conclusion of the Dale trial. County Attorney McMahon issued a warrant charging Stoner with the Jergenson murder. Stoner had skipped the country, and it now seems that he went out to Portland, Oregon, returning to the vicinity of Waterloo about six months ago. He is a mechanic by trade. To Invest $50,000 of City's Surplus With a light fund surplus of something around $120,000, the Algona city council, at a special meeting. Tuesday night, authorized the setting up of a sinking fund not to exceed $50,000. &' mciLmen Frank Kohlhaas and Lcigi 'on Mis- buck and City Treasure* Harold Gilmore, were appointed as an investment committee to determine what form of bonds the city would purchase. In the past, although there has> been discussion of the point, the surplus money in the light food has not been drawing interest, and when the total passed the $100,000 mark it became evident that a sizeable amount of interst was not being received on the money on hand. Goetz Farm Sale A furm sale will be held by Louis Goetz, situated one-half mile west and one and one-half mile north of Wesley, starting at 1 p. m., on Thursday. Jan. 21. A complete list of the property for sale wlli h* found elsewhere in the paper.
