Buffet Is the polite term the legislature Is using for the place formerly known as a saloon. The bill was offered by Phil Roan, (Rep.) Fort Madison, who said it was "a means of suppressing the growing abuse of unlicensed and unregulated sale of liquor." State Store Unchanged No change in the present setup of state stores would be made, according to provisions of the bill. The- bill provides only for the sale of liquor by the drink on the premises. All buffets and clubs licensed to sell liquor by the drink under the bill, would be prohibited from selling any for consumption off the premises, althcugh there is no man-made provision known that can keep a customer from carrying off a good supply beneath his b*Jt~at •Ither.a buffet or a --'— "In The Cooler" Is Right Casey Loss was greatly disappointed last week.

Rudnick of Ames, spoke. During the business meeting of the stockholders, a report of the last year's business was given, which showed a substantial gain over last year's report.

Miller, council president, announces that the Kossuth County Council now has 112 members, divided as follows: Algona 76; Lu- Verne, 18; Fenton, 11; Whitemore, 6; Irvlngton, 1; Titonka, 1, He also urges all council members to attend the two out-of-town meetings scheduled for next week, the first sponsored by the P. T. A. and business men of Swea City, will be held at 8:00 p. m., Monday, February 8, at Swea City. The second meeting next week, sponsored by the Whittemore Community Club, will be held at 8:00 p. m., Thursday, February 11, Old K. C. Bank Assets Advertised For Sale Feb. 15 Harry Hull, receiver of the old Kossuth County State Bank, is advertising In today's Upper Des Koines, the remaining assets tof that defunct institution for public sale February 15 in the court room at 2 o'clock. This bank, supposed to be the best of the four busted Algona banks, has paid fifty per cent and it is expected that the final dividend will be about 2 or 3 per cent The old County Savings bank paid out at about 63 per cent, the Algona State Bank 46 per cent and the old First National Bank about the same. The final dividend of the Kossuth County State Bank will perhaps be paid about March first. The assets to be sold February 15th contains the names of a number of prominent citizens, who apparently were unable or refused to settle rep within 120 days on whether sale by the drink snal" be had In those communities. In other words, If Emmctsburg was dry and Algona wot. the Pala Alto boys could como over here, or vice versa. No Dnnrlng Allowed No danplng would be allowed In the buffets, nor would food be served In any such place where liquor would be sold. Sale by clubs would be limited to bona fide members. Buffets would be limited on a population basis of the town. Every other town In Kossuth county except Algona would be limited to two buffets, as they are all under 2,000. The plan Itself Is full of loop holes. Local option has Its faults, and tends to flood cities maintaining bars with undesirables from other sections. Refusing to allow a drink before or with a meal, but letting a person drink all they want at a bar, sounds ridiculous. Temperate folks who may care for a cocktail are eliminated from having one in a dining room. The present state liquor store system may have a few faults, but returning the saloon Is certainly a long way from being an improvement. an'election must be heM w4thout,sUcc«4*:*Ctto.^clatt •« I ifonday, afternoon, .

The matter was taken under advisement. Banwart added that he believed one or two of his neighbors would hook on the circuit If one were provided. The city contends fhat there would be a greater loss of current through a transformer, which would be necessary, than Banwart could possibly use. It was reported that the case may develop into a legal action on Banwart's part, if he can gain the current no other way. Other business of the council was tievoted chiefly to the question of current city bills.
