Meuhe of Wesley Thrown from Car and Fatally Injured. HAPPENED NEAR CATHOLIC CEMETERY. On Way Home with Husband and Three Daughters After Shopping Here for Mother's Day. A tragic accident happened last Sat• unlay afternoon about five o'clock when Mrs. J. B. Meuhe of Wesley was fatally injured In a car accident north of the Catholic' cemetery on No. 18. She was returning to Wesley from a shopping tour in Algona with her husband and three daughters when it happened. A number of stories are going around as to how it happened but according to Mr. Meuhe, he was attempting to pass a car. also going east when he saw a car approaching from the east. He speeded up and got around the other car but in doing so his car, a Chevrolet coach, swerved and went onto the south shoulder of the road. This turned'the car around and It went Into the ditch still going at a fairly fast speed. The front wheels turned and were partly up the side of the road when the back of the car swung around. In some way toe door swung open and Mrs. Meuhe, who was riding in the front seat, was thrown out. The car rolled over on her and then righted itself with the front facing the paving. Neither the husband nor the daughters are entirely sure of the cause of her falling out unless she grabbed the door latch when the car swung and thus opened the door. Mrs. Meuhe and her husband were taktn to the Algona hospital by John Seefeldt of Wesley, who happened along at this time. The father and daughters did not suffer 1 any severe Injuries ex- Larrabee Was Guest of Rotary Club. Fred Larrabee of Fort Dodge, who Is a candidate for congress, was a guest of the Algona Rotary clu'o at their luncheon Monday noon, and gave a short talk In acknowledgment of the dniner invitation which had been extended to him by the club, many of the members of which are-old friends of the Larrabee family. Mr. Larrabee is making a dignified campaign for the republican nomination for congress from this district, and many Kossuth hbspii - It was found that Mrs. Meuhe had suffered a fracture at the base of her skull and that her chest was crushed. She never regained consciousness and died at seven o'clock that same evening. Father T. J. Davern administered the last rites of the Catholic church. The family had been in Algona shopping for a graduation dress for the oldest girl, Dorothy whl Is to toe graduated from the eighth grade In St. Joseph's school In Wesley and also for a first communion dress for one of the other girls. The girls had bought some presents for their mother to give her on Mother's Day. The sympathy of all goes out to the family who were called upon to part with a dear one In but a brief moment. To them the pangs of sorrow is keenly felt and her sudden passing leaves heavy and sorrowing hearts. Mary Elizabeth Mahoney was born April 16, 1877 In Edina, Missouri, and died May 10, at the age of 53 years. She came to Webster Oity with her parents when she was a small child. They later moved to Duncombe, Iowa, where she was united in marriage to J. B. Meuhe on March 30, 1910. They moved to near Wesley about fifteen years ago and four years ago purchased the Jack Cruise farm three miles northwest of Wesley and have made that their home ever since. Five children were born to Mr. and Mrs. Meuhe and all survive. They are, Robert, Dorothy, John, Agnes and Ruth. Besides the husband and children, four brothers and one sister also survive. They are Pat of Webster City, John of Duncombe, T, F. of Geddes, South Dakota, Charles of Fort Dodge and Mrs. Charles Daniels of Sherburn, Minnesota. Funeral services were held Tuesday morning at nine o'clock at St. Joseph's Catholic church in Wesley, Father Geo. Wessling officiating. Burial was in St. Joseph's cemetery. Beloved Woman Sent to Cherokee. Miss Nellie Taylor, who has all her life been one of the very highly respected and much loved women of the community was committed to the state hospital at Cherokee for senile dementia last Thursday. For the last year or more she has been failing in health, and her friends have been greatly concerned for her. The fore part of the winter she went to visit her brother. Guy, at Sioux Oity, and it was thought that she would remain there, but she returned after a few weeks' visit, and has. since been living in her home on North Thorlngton street. Friends and neighbors have looked after her most of the winter, as she seemed to have great difficulty in preparing her meals. It Is hoped that with proper care and treatment at Cherokee she will regain her health, and be able to return to Algona. county people feel that he would make an ideal man to fill "Dick's" shoes, when the latter goes to the senate. Mr. Larrabee made no mention of poll- tics in his talk $efoi* thfj Rotarians and is the last man to make claims of superiority over the other candidates. Ever since his father, the late Wm.

Fred Larrabee Is a man of ability and honesty, the same as was his father before him. He has no political tricks and his whole interests are with the common folks of this section. Kossuth county people should give Mr. Larrabee a majority second only to that of Webster county. Reports of the recent district Rotary meeting at Marshalltown were given by W. C. Dewel, Al Falkenhainer and Glen Buchanan.

She was brought from her home in Buffalo Center to the hospital and was sick but twelve days, Mrs. Larson was well known In Algona having lived here most of her life until moving to- Buffalo Center two years ago, where her husband is employed in the creamery.

The opening party of the Algona Country Club will be held on Thursday, May 22. As yet it has not been decided what kind of a party It will be whether a dancing party or card party. This will be decided v/ithin the next few days. The committees for the year have been appointed and are listed elsewhere. The committee for the opening party is as follows: Mr. and Mrs. M. P. Weaver, chairman, Mr. and Mrs. R. W. Horigan, Mr. and Mrs. G. S. Buchanan, J W. Haggard, L. E. Linnan, Mr. and Mrs. Albert Ogren, Mr. and Mrs. D. R. Steele, Mr. and Mrs. G. F. Towne and F. D.

They plan to serve a banquet to.the Bode high school Juniors and seniors on Thursday evening and will have to Ret thing8*iii readiness.

R for Sunday.dinner are to be made--T)y Saturday noon. .The Rotary club plans to eat at the club house'every other Monday as has been their custom in the past, and undoubtedly a number of the other clubs will have their luncheons there, too. At a meeting of the board of directors which was held Monday evening a motion was passed whereby any Algona person, or one living In the vicinity, can be a guest at the Country Club three times only in one season. This rule is to be strictly enforced. The club will have a "Work Day" Friday afternoon of this week when the mebers are to go out and make a general clean-up around the club house and over the grounds. Dr. P. E. Walley and ©. H. Williams were voted new members bv the board of directors Monday evening. Work Started on Court House Grounds. Work has been started on the park- Ing north of the court house. Grounds on the east side of the court house have been overlaid with manure and dirt Is being hauled from the parking onto the grounds giving them more fill. The paving on the north side of the court house will be .approximately eight to ten feet wider after the parking is cut off. It is planned to widen the paving on the north side of the block east of the court house on Call street and also to make a gravelled parking space there. Gypsies Thought Jake Burt Monitor: After a strenuous recheck by representatives of the Algona Commercial Club, It is found that the county seat has several more to add to the recent census total. The coveted mark of 4,000 was not reached, however, although it was reported, but not verified, that a band of gypsies, enroute Vacation 1 see the president is planning his summer vacation. If that whole bunch down in Washington would take a vacation for about two years, stop spending so much money, quit making any more" laws, quit investigating things and let the country run along in a natural way we would-soon adjust ourselves. Cutting down expenses would lower our taxes and reduction of taxes is the only hope of relief the farmer has. Every law they pour Into the hopper comes out against the farmer. If the Hawley-Smoot bill becomes a law it will cost the average family in Kossuth county $7.50 more each year for the shoes they buy. This a new brand of farm relief, it relieves each farmer of $7.50. This income tax they are talking about will make jobs for a lot of lame ducks and what is left after expense of collection will make spending money for the boys in Des Molnes. It is a queer way to lighten our tax burden by adding more expense. We have too many expenses now. I know I could not sell shoes cheaper by hiring two or three more clerks. We elected John Hammill on the "pay-as-you-go" platform. He was only in office a short time when he was lying awake nights figuring on new ways to spend our money. I think It is time for the farmer to get out his lead pencil and figure his own way out. If he waits for legislation he will die of dry rot. I am in the shoe business, the farmers' prosperity is my prosperity. I am not running for office, nor talking for any party or any candidate. I just like fairness, equality of people. Bight now there is a lot of apple sauce in the higher circles. A common man cannot even get a bottle of beer. The other day a travelling man left a two ounce bottle of his product as a sample. Before using it I thought best to test it out. There is a tame rabbit that has been loafing around our yard so I rubbed some of the stuff on his nose. Believe it or not that raUbit marched right across the street and licked the stuffing out of jJim Duryea's bull dog. There you are. If you talk to a politician he raises your taxes, if you get friendly with a bootlegger it means instant death, blindness or insanity JIMMIE NEVILLE THE SHOE MAN Algona, Iowa.

Melvin Faulstich, the five year old son of Mr. and Mrs. Walter Fnulntich who live between Burt and Titonka. died in the Algona hospital Monday evening as the result of being shot ac- cldcntly by his ten year old brother. The two had been playing Sunday and found an old twenty-two gauge rifle in a woodshed. The trigger on the gun was broken, it seems, and the children fixed up a contrivance with a rubber band. Somehow the younger child was shot. The bullet entered his lead and lodged In the back of his head. The child was brought to the Algona hospital, but it was not thought advisable to operate. The child was conscious most of Monday, but died in ;he evening. The older brother was completely overcome by the accident.

He has built up one of the largest agencies in this territory and the present removal Jto the completely equipped office In the Haggard & Peterson building Is a further indication of the growth in volume enjoyed by the firm. All lines of insurance, including life, accident, fire, windstorm, liability and casualty insurance as well as bonds of all kinds are supplied through this firm in some of the leading well established companies.

Even the Churches May Become Wise. ALGONA GETS FIFTH IN BIG SIX MEET Des Molnes Register: Declaring that we have seen In America a great wave of both social and religious Intolerance in the last few years, the Rev. Charles J. Button, pastor of the First Unitarian church, Eleventh and High streets, discussed, "What Makes a Liberal/' at the morning service Sunday. Liberal Faces Life. "Liberalism," he said, "is a philosophy of life, a way of looking at reality. A liberal is one who faces all facts with intelligence, seeks all the evidence before making up his mind, Is not afraid of new Ideas, and who endeavors to rule his life through knowledge, wisdom, temperance and beauty. "The orthodox believer divides men and women Into two classes—good and bnd. To him the bad are those who do not accept his Ideas or religion, morality or society. Both Good and Bad. "The liberal realizes men and women are a mixture of both good and bad. Instead of condemning their actions, he tries to understand them, and to act kindly at all times to all persons. "The liberal is tolerant, only little persons are intolerant, and Intolerance is caused by fear. The liberal remembers that though all intolerant persons claim they arc fighting against ideas and beliefs, yet they vent their punishment on human bodies and human minds, Need of America. "America," he said in closing, "needs more than anything else, the liberal philosophy of life.. Though BUYOUT thinkers, all writers, philosophers and scientists have It, yet It BtUI'is fix from being the ideal of the masses. Pome day even the churches;may'Tacoepfej-B liberal viewpoint.

The Algona high school track team did not show up as well as was expected at the Big Six meet at Hampton last Saturday. The best they could do was to place fifth in the meet. It was a terrible day to hold a meet as it rained most of the time and the track was composed mostly of mud and water, thereby making it impossible to make any records. The time in nearly every race was very slow because of this, but the field events went nearly as good as they have in the past when the meet was conducted under favorable conditions. The breaks went against some of the boys but that is to be expected in any athletic event. Lindhorst had a chance to place in the low hurdles when he spilled over the last hurdle thus being eliminated. Blossom missed copping second place In the broad jump by three-quarters of an inch. Cowan in the pole vault has gone ten inches higher than 9 foot 6 inches, which was the height he was disqualified at. He could not get used to the takeoff. This all comes with more experience. Algona men in the past hold four records at this meet'and next year with most of the boys back, they will probably make more. The "boys who made the trip were: Miller, Jordan, Mangan, Cowan, Lind- lorst, Moore, Blossom, Pinnell, Norman, Runchey, Samp, Hargreaves, Adams, Cliff and Cretzmeyer.
