A horse and buggy was a luxury then and an investment of perhaps $200 was necessary. Now everyone 6%ns an automblle, an investment of perhaps $1000.

If we have hard times, we should lay it to our own extravagance and not to the conditions of the times. News and Comment. 1ARRABEE PLEASED WITH VOTE. Fred Larrabee, who was defeated for the republican nomination for congress to the primary last week by a narrow margin, was very well pleased by the vote given him to Kossuth county and in a friendy note to the Upper Des Molnes-Republican, says: "Some news that is very gratifying to me has just reached this office, that is, that Kossuth county has endorsed my candidacy with something over a hundred votes. We seem to have lost out In the district at large, but it is a matter of much satisfaction to m» to know that my friends to Kossuth county have stayed with me throughout this campaign. for many years I have been going through Kossuth county, stopping at Algona and other places, and regard very -highly the acquaintance that I have to the county. Having land to the county, I also feel much interested there." Mr. Larrabee, whose personal record aa state senator from the Fort Dodge i ~ ' — district for several years, as well as known how easy H was to wln< " have the splendid record made by his fath saved them a lot of mone y- er, the late Wm. Larrabee, as governor of Iowa, gave assurance that he would have made a distinguished congressman has reason to be proud of his large vote and clean campaign. No cheap political tricks were employed by him nor were loud-mouthed paid political workers to his behalf to evidence at the polls primary day. Mr. Larrabee carried Kossuth county in the face of an organized opposition headed by the local bosses and he has cause to feel proud of the showing made here. The Fort edge Messenger says of Senator Larrabee: "We feel that it is an unusual opportunity for the people wuen a man of Mr. Larrabee's character, ability and Intelligence is available for public ser- farm relief »vice. And it is a matter of satisfaction to note that our view of it was concurred to by. the overwnelmtog majority \ The country needs more work, less play, more money and less spending. A decision of the supreme court says it Is lawful to buy booze but an awful crime to sell it. If Dick, Turner and Gilchrlst had Congressman L. J. Dickinson and Family It begins to appear that the wet and dry issue will be prominent in the next presidential campaign platforms. Congressman L. J.

Dan got into the campaign early, he had various organizations lined up and at work before his opponent entered the field. Smith, having been a former appointee of Governor Hammill, this worked to his disadvantage. Both are capable men with good clean records, regardless of some of the charges made during the campaign by a few cheap politicians who can only trump up false or imagtoery charges against a candidate. We know Dan Turner and Ed. Smith personally. We supported Smith, but made no attacks upon Mr. Turner. We expect to do everything possible to cooperate with his administration and wish him every success. The congressional fight was clean and honorable and no dirt was thrown by any one of the three candidates Senator Gilchrist will be a fitting successor to Mr. Dickinson and the fact that he did not carry Kossuth county was due to the fact that Mr. Larrabee has many old acquaintances here, owns considerable land in the county and pays taxes here. The credit of the nomination of Mr. Dickinson, Mr. Turner and Mr. Gilchiist is not due to any one organization or newspaper, although some of them claim the credit, but rather to the voters as a whole. In the county the successful candidates received majorities that were convincing und as the majority rules, they should be elected. We expect to support the nominees Of the recent primary to the best of our ability. A FAST AGE. We are living in the fastest age of the world's history. New inventions, new discoveries, something new every day is being made. The past hundred years has seen marvelous developments in science and many theories advanced at that time and thought by learned minds as impossible have been proven true. People, a few years ago, observed the Sabbath as a day of rest and to break the monotony of sitting at home, they attended church. Today, the.plans are made on Monday for the following Sunday and it generally is a trip somewhere, one hundred, two hundred or even more miles from home to the car. We talk of hard times, the scarcity of money and wonder what the final result will be. Most people with an automobile are spending more money every week for gasoline and automobile expenses, than it cost to maintain the average family for a week to the days gone by. If toe people of this country had had one-tenth as much money twenty-five years ago as is now invested to auto- M " J s less toan'that"amourit.

Farmers, there is a reason. Dr. Stelner of Grinnell says fifty per cent of the college students should stay at home. A good many fond papas and mammas realize this is true. When Iowa had mud roads toe eastern papers advertised it to the world. Now we have the best roads of any western state and but little is said. Bishop Cannon of the Methodist church is having trobules of his own. He was charged with bucking the stock markets and now he Is to bad with congress for refusing to testify. Iowa leads the world to a lot of things and now a Council Bluffs girl is proclaimed the best speller to the United States. That is an honor greater than Babe Ruth holds, even if it does not pay as well. The Marshalltown Times-Republican suggests making flower gardens on the shoulders along the paving. That would be pretty, but what is the poor farmer driving a team going to do when two damfool auto drivers come racing down the paving? Come Over Seth, and Have One. Whtttemore Champion: The editor of ^ Algona'Bepubllcatt,last week penned an editorial in defense of the lowly dandelion, recommending that people eat iir as a healthful food to the shape of greens. He says that some people even make good wine ,out of the blossoms. It must be that he was speak- Weather Bad, Band Concert Called Off. Owing to the inclement weather last Thursday night the band concert was called off. There will be one this Thursday providing the weather permits. A good crowd should attend and give the boys a hand. The band's personnel is as follows' Vernon Spongberg, L. H. Guderian, Fred Bartholomew and Leonard Smith cornets; C. W. Nlcoulln, R. P. Norton, George Spongberg, Helmuth Huenhold, Glen Raney and A.

C. H. Johnson is the director. Editor Sperbeck's Father was Injured. Swea City Herald: O. F. Sperbeck, who was driving from his home at Iowa Falls to Sioux Falls, South Dakota, Saturday, ran Into the ditch with his Chevrolet six near Rock Rapids, and suffered a broken right arm and a badly bruised shoulder and hip. One of the rear tires on the car went flat and the machine was. thrown into the ditch. After getting a new wheel put onto the car, Mr. Sperbeck drove back to Spirit Lake where his injuries received attention. Sunday he was driven to Swea City by his brother-in-law, Frank Weed, of Orleans, He spent the night here with his son, Bay Sperbeck, and the next day was driven to his home at Iowa Falls, by a neighbor, otto Knode, purnp repair man on the Bock Island, who happened to be at Lakota a few hours Monday afternoon. from first hand information and wrote toe editorial right after he had taken a liberal helping of the wine. If he Is such a firm believer to the dandelion as a health food we were perfectly willing that he should cometo our lawn and pick all he wants. We can ganrantee him enough so he will live to be older than Methuselah A few years ago people were scrapping as to who brought the first dandelions to Iowa. It was a doubtful honor, and were we guilty we would be ashamed to look a home owner to toe face. Largest Crowd Ever Visits Park Sunday. Park Custodian Paul Wille reports that the Call State Park had over 1900 visitors a week ago Sunday. This was the biggest list that has ever been out there since the Diamond Jubilee The visitors were from all over Iowa including Ottumwa, Sioux City and Ames. There were also out of state cars from Minneapolis. Everyone said that the park was one of the most beautiful and well-keot narks they had ever been in. This was a tribute to Mr. Wille who is a verv efficient custodian. Breakenridge Won Senator Nomination. W. 3. Breakenridgo. former state senator from this district, was nominated for state senator in Tama county Four candidates were in the field Mr Breakenridge recevled 1347 votes while his three opponents received 683 621 and 210 votes. This vote gave'him about forty-seven per cent of the entire vote. This is taken from a semiofficial report of the Tama county election with two or three precincts to hear from, but there is evidently no question of his nomination. E. C. McMahon Opens Law Office Here. E. C. McMahon, who has been in the Sullivan, McMahon & Linnan law offices for the past two years has opened up an office of his own over the Christensen store. He is a nephew of H. ii. McMahon and a son of Mrs. Nellie McMahon, who came to Algona from Emmetsburg a year or so ago Mr. McMahon is a graduate of Creighton University. Hackmam Back From Tennessee. Mr. and Mrs. George Hackman and George Hackman, Jr., arrived in Algona last Thursday from Knoxville Tennessee, where George is an instructor in electricity in the Park Junior high school. Mr. and Mrs. Hackman went down on the train to meet George and drove back with him via Louisville Kentucky, and Decatur, Illinois, where they visited relatives. George reports that the corn in Tennessee is knee high and grain is in the shock. He expects to stay in Algona most of the summer . _ . — i — • —. -—. «_ v**«# U*UV^J.0*ur* sn £ ubs - . „ „ ' Watson was Instrumental to helping The first application of, the spray the university place first to athletics should be made Just before .toe bios-1 at the training camp'to Ft Snelltog soms are ready to open, or, when toe] by .being a member of toe track, base- plants are heading out.

Spray machinery shoulc be well painted and clothes which have been saturated with the spray shoulc be washed before they are worn. Interesting Letters on Display Here. Three letters and a post card have been on display to the window of the the Algona Insurance Agency, one of which was carried by Lindbergh on the first flight to the South American mail service. The other two letters and the card came from Germany on the Graf Zeppelin, which landed a week or so ago in Lakehurst, New Jersey. One letter had been mailed by Al Falkenhainer to his grandson, Tasker, son of Mr. and Mrs. M. H. Falken- hainer. The postage on this amounted to $2.60. A sister of Mr. Falkenhata- er, who lives in, Milwaukee, sent him the post card which cost for the round trin, $1.33. The other [letter from Germany came to his sister from friends living to Germany, the postage of which cost something over two dollars. The letters created much interest among Algona people. Base Ball Dance Drew Good Crowd. Quite a large crowd attended the benefit baseball dance at 'the fair grounds Thursday night to spite of the Inclement weather. The ball team has been putting up a great brand of ball so far this season but the outside games have not been very greatly patronized, although people have been supporting the team in great shape. Register Good News Plane was Here. The Register & Tribune plane, Good News, dropped into Algona June 2 and took a picture of L. J. Dickinson as he was casting his vote to the presence of a number of friends. From there it went to Mason City where other pictures were taken, one of them when Mr. Dickinson's mother was voting. Bowling Trophy on Display in Hub. The Hub Recreation Parlor has an attractive bowling trophy on display to their window. It is a silver loving cup with a bowler on the top. The names of the members of the teams which won the championship for the past three years are engraved on the cup. The winner this year was Nick's Shiners and pictures of the team are also shown to the window. To permft* nently win the cup the team must wto two years in succession. Much to- terest is shown to Algona to bowling and there is intense rivalry between the various teams. - Fine Compliments.
