Mr. Mlabach was born in Princeton, 111., and In the prime of life came to Algona where he entered the service of the Taylor Dry Goods store in 1890. In 1808 he became associated with George Kraft in the Kraft- Mlsbach clothing firm and later became the sots owner. He had remained in active business until the time of his stroke. Community Activity As a charter member of the local Rotary club and the Country Club, and as a member of the Masonic Lodge, Mr. Misbach took an active part in community life and community development. He acquired the property now occupied by the Mlsbach store and daring years of activity earned the high regard of many friends land acquaintances. His life was consistent with tha ideals of hard work and progress^ and his departure marks another milestone in the passing of early Algona civic and business leaders. \ Joseph Mlsbach, 67, Algona merchant for the past 40 years, who passed away Wednesday evening at J^o'plook,,following a obituary on this page.

Stoner and McVey, in Jail, Discuss Parts in Crime As Officers Tune in on Loud Speaker Plugged In At Home of Sheriff A dictograph in the Kossuth county jail brought a life sentence in the Fort Madison penitentiary for Harry Stoner, Algona, on a charge of being an accessory to murder in the first degree, as a result of the death of Mrs. Anna Jergensen, April 27, 1935, two days after she was slugged and robbed in her home here. Stoner. arrested in Waterloo several weeks ago on an old murder charge, filed after Warren Dale waft acquitted by a Kossuth grand jury, finally broke down and signed a confession of complicity In the murder, although he denied actually entering Mrs. Jergensen's house or striking her. The refusal of County Attorney L. A. Wlnkel, newly elected officer, to drop the case, and determination to get at the bottom of the affair, brought about the most startling and surprising afternoon In years in the Algona court room Wednesday. SUSPECTS PLACED IN THREE DIFFERENT .JAILS Basing his belief in the guilt or at least complicity of Stoner, and possibly Glen McVey, In the murder, on his experience as defense attorney for Warren Dele, tried In June, 1935, on a charge of murdering Mrs. Jergensen, Winkel went to work Immediately after bringing Stoner back to Algona. Stoner was lodged In the Algona Jail; McVey was arrested and placed in jail at Emmetsburg; Mrs. McVey was taken to the Fort Dodge jail. Then several days ago, after attempts to dislodge the story of the trio had failed, McVey was brought to the Kossuth jail from Emmetsburg, and he and Stoner were placed alone In the same cell, segregated from other prisoners. SHUMWAY, SPECIAL PROSECUTOR, , OBTAINS DICTOGRAPH In the meantime, GaylonJ_P. Shumway, former county attorney, appointed by the court as a special prosecutor, arranged for placing a dictograph in the jail. Wires were strung from Uie Jafl into tfie home _• *-«___..

A number of other local places had boxes placed In prominent places for funds to be turned over to the American Red Cross.

Taylor, secretary and treasurer of the Algona Ice Cream and Candy Factory, located at Diagonal and Elm Streets, announce* the formal opening of his cold (tor- age locker plant on February 9. The cold storage locker plant U In the same building with a 400 ton ice storage, all of which have been in the process of construction since lost September. Mr. Taylor aays a cold storage locker system is an arrangement whereby several hundred steel lockers are kept in a large room held at 15 degree above wro. They «r« arranged l» « manner similar to safety deposit boxes in a bank vault, and anyone using a locker U given a prtvatt key. a&4 h* fep at all times to his locker. Tiie lockers are used (or the storage of meats, fowls, fish and many fruits and vegetable*. Mr. Taylor explained the building is heavily Insulated with cork thoughout, and two new automatic refrigerating systems have been in- ataUed.. Various' 1 ' temyeratured rooms are provided for the proper processing of meat. There U » 3i-degre« room where the meat U properly chilled and aged. It is then cut up Into steaks, roa»t», chops, etc., wrapped in parchment paper and each package marked as to contest*. Xt then go** to tbe freesing roosa where it i« aulckly frozen at a temperature of below MJW, aJod from there it U placed in the customer's private locker, to which he has ac- cees at all times. The quick freezing process is an important step in preserving the fine fresh flavor of meats, fruits, vegetables, etc. Mr. Taylor explained this locker plant will make it possible for the farmer to butcher bis own meat at any time of the year, however, a custom butcher service will be provided. He will prepare the meat for the locker patron* at a very nominal charge and will alao go into the country and do butchering for those farmers who do not wish to butcher for themselves. Meat will be purchased on a wholesale basi* for those desiring the service, at » nominal brokerage charge. About a year and a half ago Mr. Taylor explained that he installed 60 lockers as an experiment in a sharp freezer and the demand for these few caused him to greatly enlarge his service in this department. Two hundred and fifty lockers are now available and there is sufficient space for the long time storing of a couple of hogs or 75 to 100 chickens or many fruits and vegetables in each locker at a coat of approximately 3 cents per day. Frank Griffin, architect of Fort Dodge, Iowa, designed the building and C. W. Stipp, refrigerating engineer from Des Moiues, designed the refrigerating facilities. H. R. Cowan & Son of Algona were the builder*. JUDGE DAVIDSON GIVES REVIEW OF ALL PHASES OF MURDER Judge Davidson, In sentencing Stoner just before 5 p. m., delivered a graphic, verbal review of murder In all of its aspects. He pointed out that there are three forms of murder, first, second and manslaughter, and that this case was a clear case of murder in the first degree. He emphasized that the evidence had shown clearly that Stoner was In close connection with the crime, although nothing could bring him to an admission of anything, but getting near the Jergensen home, despite other statements he made to other witnesses, but not county officers. He pointed out that Stoner had not denied Bingaman a testimony, nor did he deny that he admitted being in the Jergensen house, when questioned by officers at Waterloo. Judge Davidson then asked Stoner to stand up, and as the defendant looked down at his shoes, with his hands folded behind his back, sentenced him to life imprisonment at hard labor in the Fort Madison ^"warrerf Dale, defendant in the first Jergensen murder trial, is now servin* a 25 year sentence on a habitual criminal charge, even though found not guilty in a jury trial at which L. A, Winkel defended him, on a charge of murdering Mrs. Jergensen. Dale is at present about 50 serving his present sentence amounts to practically life imprisonment for him. STONER INDICATES STRONG FEAR OF "GETTING THE ROPE" Judge Davidson added, further, that there was not enough evidence to involve the ultimate sentence, that of hanging. Stoner had previously evidenced his fear of the rope. "It's a pretty heavy sentence for my part in the thing , said Stoner to Winkel, after the sentence, and before he was taken back to the county jail by Sheriff Loss. Glen McVey was also returned to the custody of local officers, and iVRS his \f\fc The entire case had an unusual legal aspect. The defendant had already signed a confession implicating him in the murder, but still because of legal procedure required and the necessity of determining the - ree of guilt, it was necessary to take testimony and handle the sltua- in accordance with the due process of law. Whether or not there will be anv further prosecution In connection with the Jergensen murder case, which would mean that of McVey, Winkel declined to comment. M'VEY. WIFE. FACING CHARGES OF BIGAMY, WINKEL SAYS Both Glen McVey and Lottie McVey are subject to charges of bigamy County Attorney Winkel Uated.
