WILSONS VISIT FRIENDS IN IOWA Former Algona Residents Here from Home in California, W11SONS NOW LIVE Al? LONG- BEACH. Mr. Wilson Was One of AJgona's Most Active Business Men for Many Years. Emmetsburg Democrat: H. J. Wilson of Long Beach, California, was a brief caller Tuesday of last Week. He and Mrs. Wilson were on their way home by car from North Carolina where they were visiting one of their daughters. They stopped at Humboldt, the' former home of Mrs. Wilson, and also at Algona, where Mr. Wilson located with his parents in I860. While so close by, they could not resist coming to Emmeteburg, where they resided from 1888 to 1899. Mr. Wilson's father, the late J. J. Wilson, owned Model Mills in this city during early days and, in 1887, Harry came to this city to take charge of it. He lost a leg in an accident when a small boy but he was one of the snappiest business men who ever struck Emmetsburg. All will remember him riding about on a bicycle four or five feet in height when he first came to town. He coulcTgo about like the wind. Later the lower bi- cycles'came into' the market, Mr. Wilson's business ' -dealings brought him Into contact with wholesale houses and merchants in several states. He was unusually capable and he kept things moving. He played the cornet in the band while he was in town. He tells us that he does not play any more. He brought his horn from Long Beach to North Carolina, where his grandson lives, and gave it to him. Mr. Wilson was engaged In the .wholesale business at Algona for a long time after leaving Emmeteburg. He could handle a car to perfection and he was a splendid salesman. Our reporter asked him Tuesday if he had made, any headway with airplanes but he told us that be had never been up in -one. When we surprisingly asked the reason why he told us that Mrs. Wilson has a big foot and that when she stamped on the floor and told him to stay on terra firma he decided that he would have to obey her. Long Beach, Harry tells us, has become a place of almost 160,000. Its growth, during the past ten years, has been enormous. Mr. Wilson sold stocks and bonds for several years and he was unusually successful. Last fall, however, when the Wall'Street crash came, business slowed down. In fact, while, the Pacific coast cities have grown' enormously, laboring conditions at the present time are not at all satisfactory. When employers find out; on investigation, that an applicant is 'from another state, the stranger does not land the job. This is also .true of school teachers. Aside f»nr'tnis, v ttie^requirements for teachers In California are much stricter than they are in this state. Mr. and Mrs. Wilson have taken several trips to Georgia, the Carolines, Virginia, and other southeastern states. They visited the old battle grounds of the Civil War on their present trip and they stored their memories with hundreds of historic facts. Their other daughter lives in Des Moines. They will, of course, spend some time with her before returning home. Mrs. Wilson's parents conducted the Russell hotel at Humboldt for many years. They were pioneers in that county. When Mr. Wilson called on us, in company with his old 'friend, Marshall Brennan, he tried to persuade us that M. F. had pulled him for violating the speed ordinance and he was asking for us to help him out. We could scarcely believe this and, when we looked into the marshall's eyes, we knew that they had tried to pull a Joke on us. LUVERNE NEWS. Mrs. Fred Stuessy was an Algona caller Tuesday.

Mentally you are at ease because you are sure of the mechanical pcrfornianco of the cor. No matter how long the trip, or rough or devious the roadway, you know it will bring you safely, quickly to the journey's end. Through thickest traffic, up steepest hills, along the open road, you will drive with security and confidence because the new Ford is so alert and capable and so easy to operate and control. The steering wheel responds readily to a light touch. Gears shift smoothly and silently. Brakes take hold quickly and firmly even oh rain-swept streets. Unusual acceleration, speed and power are especially -appreciated in emergencies. 'A space but little longer than the car itself is all you need for parking^ These features simplify the mechanics of driving and, together with reliability, add a great deal to the mental comfort .of motoring. Physically, too, you will feel fresh and relaxed in the new Ford because it is such a roomy, easy-riding car. The restful, well-upholstered scats invite you to ait back and relax and enjoy the panorama of the passing miles. Steadily, evenly you travel along because of the specially designed springs and the four Houdaille doubl&acling hydraulic shock absorbers. They cushion the car against hard jolts and bumps, reduce bouncing, and smooth your path along every highway. See the nearest dealer and have him ' take you for a demonstration ride in the ' new Ford. Then you will know, from your own experience, that it brings you everything you want in an automobile at an unusually low'price. '* \^ ,'-.! J NOTE THESE I-OW PRICES Roadster '.••..
