Messrs. Phillips, Finlay and Berger were the honored guests. The three petagoga attended to their teaching on schedule with no indigestion available. The girls know the way to a man's heart and should suffer no low grades. « • • Quite s number of business men have paid a heavy license fee to sell cigarettes. Many of tftpse advertise consistently at another expense. One of these vendors walked into an office and there found two men dividing 1,000 cigarettes which were brought into the state tax free. These men have served on the board of the Commercial club, helped in many ways to build up the town, expect the rest of the populace to trade with them and plead with the people to trade at home. In fact, one of the men is the greatest booster for the "trade at home" idea. But he finds saving tax on cigarettes- a reasonable excuse* tor-send out of the state for them. Well, why be two-faced? Tell all to trade where it is the cheapest whether at home or not • • • Do yon know the difference between a democrat and a republican one dollar bin?

He sat at dinner and his lot fell to serving three youngsters bread, butter and jam. By the time the third was catered to, the first was back for more. Three children. three helpings, three rounds. Bill wasn't fast at the job, no previous experience, and he got far behind the elder diners who went, merrily on eating fried oysters while they were hot and palatable. » * » Hanging on the wan in the LaBarre insurance office is a reproduction of State street in Algona away back in the seventies. The names of the business houses of that time are printed at each location for identification. It is well worth preserving and everyone should see it Hertwt parked his car up town Saturday morning. Worked at the office until five o'clock, couldn't find the car and reported it stolen at six o'clock. The police went on search and found tt a few minutes later north of the Advance print shop exactly a* Theo. had left it, unharmed and unmoved. Anyone graveyard tkto town to » be placed in one. What you hear one say the& ia nothing to do refer to the goings on of Tuesday night Games at the Call; « great show at the State, cribbage tournament at the V. F. W. hall, annual! Chamber of Commerce- meeting, at the high school; basketball game at the Academy, meeting at the First Lutheran church, orchestra rehearsal at the Ugh school and scattered private parties.
