A number questioned either refused to comment, commented and asked that their remarks be stricken from the record, or else had no definite views one way or the oth- Should a plant be erected to handle sewage disposal In the City of Algona, cost would be approximately $128,000 at a minimum, to adequately take care of the situation. Because of the layout of the city sewage system, either one disposal plant with a booster pump locatec on the opposite side of the city to pump from that side to the disposa plant would be necessary, or as an alternative, two sewage disposa plants would be required, it has been stated.

Madole of Titonka shaved his mustache off Saturday, the first time in 50 years. When he was 21 he let his beard grow, and it has been growing ever since and he is now 71. It all happened when his wife decided to get a permanent wave. Mr. Madole told her when she did that he would shave his mustache. She replied by daring him to do it. She had her wave and a few days later he went down town after supper and had his whiskers sTiaved off. He didn't go home until after she had gone to bed.

Alfred Baum In Oklahoma Jail HELD, WHITTEMORE Whittemore: William riiggins died at his home here, last Friday evening, after a lingering illness of four years. He had lived in Whittemore for 55 years. He was 71 at the time of his death. Mr. Higgins was born in Illinois in 1882. He was married to Elizabeth Bigley at Emmetsburg in 1882. Three children were born to Clarence Morrall Gets A Real Surprise—Two Months Later Clarence Morrall was about the most surprised man in Algona, on Tuesday, when he was summoned into court to answer a charge of reckless driving. It seems that on Feb. 10th, Morrall drove out of the alley back of the Elk Cleaners, and a collision occurred with one of the local delivery trucks. Neither car was badly damaged, and nobody was hurt. Morrall called Frank Green, city marshal, and after looking the situation over, they decided the fault was Morrall's. The latter thereupon had his garage, The Kossuth Motor, repair the truck and the matter seemed settled, so far as the parties concerned knew anything about. Tuesday morning Morrall received a call from the court house, and one of the highway patrol boys R. W. Caldwell of Garner, inform ed Morrall that he was charged Distilling Plant Securities Case Ready For Jury Here with reckless driving and subject to a heavy fine or perhaps have his drivers' license taken away from him. After the peaceful settlement of the unimportant collision over two months ago, to find himself faced with a serious charge was a trifle disconcerting to say the least especially in view of the observance of the law requiring all such accidents to be reported—and which is usually flagrantly violated. Tuesday afternoon Morrall was fined $5 and costs of $2.25 on the charge and is still at a loss to know just how the wheels of justice work in some instances. P. A. Danson. justice, who heard the case, said his only knowledge of the affair was the charge filed with him bv Patrolman Kildwell.

Shirley and her little brother were playing, and the little boy was holding a spading fork, using it in the garden. As Shirley came near him she collided with the fork in such a manner that it jobbed her eye, and pierced the eyeball. Tuesday she was taken to Iowa City. It is believed that it may be possible to save the eye, but not the sight in the eye. Lotts Creek Ball Team Organized The Lotf.s Creek baseball team was organized here last Friday night.
