It is rumored that Estherville may have a daily paper and that the i« dertaking will be by Deemer Lee of the News. Small town dailies Usually have hard sledding. For several years Fairmont, Minnesota, had two dailies and they both worked hard and made' little, perhaps lost money. After the death of Mr. Ward, they were consolidated and one daily now furnishes the news to that community and no doubt is making good. Estherville now has three weekly papers and that is too many for any town. If the three Estherville papers could consolidate they might make a go of the proposition. In Algona it is doubtful if a dally could exist. Three dallies reach this city every day, published in larger elites with service that a small town daily could not afford. The Des Molnes Register reaches Algona at a. m., the Mlason City Globe-Gazette at 3:30 p. m. and the oFrt Dodge Mes- senber at about 5:30 p. m. They are delivered to the homes in most cases by carriers and we imagine this competition would make a local daily with limited resources impossible. There is plenty of grief and trouble for the •weekly editor and if his troubles were increased sixfold he would surely earn his money. COUNTY FAIRS. Farm Bureau Program for September. For the Legislature. the S. It seems that the campaign for representative from Kossuth county is on and may'become lively before the November election. Last week the democratic canddate, A. H. Bonstet- ter of Oarflelfl township, Issued a letter to the public defining his position. He is for a revision of the tax laws and favors a state income tax. So does Mr. Jensen, his republican opponent. Mr. Bonstetter is opposed to all chain organizations. He favors a change in the game laws to allow the farmers to shoot pheasants for table use at all seasons until they are no longer a menace to crops, Mr. Bon- stetter, who himself is a dairyman, favors an increase in state taxes on butter substitutes. He is against diverting the gas tax to the cities and towns, believing it will increase the farmer's burdens. He is against piling up bonded indebtedness. He promises to serve the county in a non-partisan manner should he be elected. Mr, Bonsteter it is understood will make an active campaign, and it is whispered that the "expense money" voted themselves in the last legislature by Mr. Patterson and Mr. Jensen will figure in the .campaign. The j republicans of the county have already put their stamp of approval upon this (By County Agent Morrison). The September program as arrattg ed by the county farm bureau pro gram committee should prove especial ly interesting. It includes a persona letter to all Kossuth county farm bu reau folks from our state presiden Chfcs. E. Hearst. President Hears stopped in the midst of the state M rush to write this letter for us. Wm. Shirley, county superlntenden of schools, has contributed some fact about the general and widespread in terest in Kossuth county schools tha maybe used to a discussion "Answe the Call."

For several years a fellow named Elckelberg of Waterloo has popped up in politics with some platform and en - igma and asked the voters of Iowa to support him for United States senator. tunate in having two such able men seeking to serve them in the state legislature, but to the many who do not know Mr. Bonstetter's qualifications, we would like to say a few words in his behalf. He is a son of Mr; 1 and Mrs. Martin Bonstetter, who were highly respected farmers of Garfield township for many many years, but who have now retired and are living In Algona. In this connection, we might also add that Mr. and Mrs. Bonstetter are the parents of a family of ambitious young men and women—Miss Antoinette who has been nurse for the Algona and Humboldt city schools for many years; Herman who is farming in Garfield township; Mrs. Milton Fox Died Here Last Wednesday Friends of Mrs. Milton Fox wer saddened by hearing of her death las Wednesday afternoon at three o'cloc at her home on East State street. Mrs Fox had been ailing for the past fou years from pernicious anemia and hat been confined to her bed the last fou weeks preceding her death. Mrs. Fo was confirmed in the Norwegian Luth eran church in Wesley but Joined th Presbyterian church when she mov ed to Algona and of which she was faithful member until her death. Emma Louise Funnemark was bor. November 28, 1882, in Wesley township and died at her home in Algona Sep tember 3, 1890, at the age of forty, eight years. She. was the daughter o Mr. and Mrs. John Funnemark who were well known farmers of the Wesley vicinity. She was united in marriage to .'Milton Fox In Algona on November 11, 1903, and in 1915, the family moved to Algona where they have been ever since. Two children were born to this union, Mabel M. who died in infancy and Erma who Is at home. Beside the husband and daughter, the following brothers and sisters are left to mourn: Henry Funnemark of Wesley; Otto of Portland, Oregon; Mart of Holcomb Wisconsin; Carl of San Francisco; M3ra. Nettie Dohstad of Freeport Illinois; Mrs. F. M. Butler of San Francisco; Mrs. Josle Shaul of Des Molnes and Mrs. M. Presbyterian church in Algona Saturday afternoon at two-thirty. Rev. J. L. coleman officiated. Burial was hi the Evergreen cemetery In Wesley. Mrs. P. J. Scanlan of Freeport, Illinois attended the funeral. Now he has gone "coo-coo" over what he calls his economic plan of refined capitalism. He has notified both L. J. Dickinson, republican nominee for senator and also Senator Steck' that if they do not endorse his plan, he will be an independent candidate for the senate. Here Is what he says: "It is up to Mr. Dickinson to determine whether or not I shall file my papers and run as'an independent. I am asking Dickinson to endorse my plan. If he does, I will not run. Otherwise I shall file my papers as an independent candidate against him. In the meantime I am securing signers for my petition, so that I will be in readiness to file in the event of Mr. Dickinson's rejection of my proposal." Political candidate have many things to contend with, but Mr. Eickelbevf; will probably not worry either of the candidates "much". News and Comment, A ]ot of fellows are worried for fear the short corn crop will affect the price of hootch. Some of the old golfers still maintain that Tom Dumb and all forms of tiddle-de-dee golf is a joke. Another earthquake in California. no doubt causes former Iowa people to think of the old home town. The game warden says there will be an open season on pheasants next. month. With some fellows the season never closes. It must be unpleasant to have a successful business in Chicago. Now the gangsters force miniature golf courses to pay a monthly fee, Redistrictlng Iowa Into nine congressional districts will be some job no matter how it is done there be a lot of s>ore spots S.ome Of the boys who spent hours Bittlrtg HOOprnfortably in tiees are now assigned nice and comfortable seats in ttye school rQOBJ and still they kick.

K., who is farming in Garfle 1 township. Alex was born and raised east of West Bend in Kossuth county. He received his early schooling in and near here and later attended Highlano Park college for two years. Following this he taught school four years. He then took four years' work in Valparaiso, Indiana, University — the better to fit himself for the teaching profession. At this time, the outlook for the farmer seemed better than teaching, so he began farming, at which he has been quite successful. He has always been a close student of the problems of the day and his article in this issues gives some policies for which he stands. He is a member of the farm bureau and is dairy activities. a strong booster for He is also a member of the school board of the West Bend consolidated school. He has many special qualifications for the position to which he seeks. Alex will always be found fighting for what he thinks is right. He does not draw the line sharply between the democratic an.! republican parties. His record has been that he has openly supporter] many republican as well as democratic candidates." Invalid Lady Died Here Last Thursday. Miss Gustava Osland, who lived in the south part of Algona died suddenly Thursday, September 4, presumably by poison whether accidentally Or otherwise is not known. Miss Osland, who had been an invalid for nearly twenty years, had been up town in the morning and had come home from there. She was found dead by her sisters with whom she lived, at noon Thursday.

The family came to Buffalo Center from Norway in 1899 anc settled on a farm there. Miss Oslanc came to Algona about four years ago with two sisters and has made her home here since that time.

New Buildings at Clay County Fair, For the convenience of the lady patrons of the Clay county fair at Spencer, September 16 to 20, a large res room has Just been completed. It is located in the basement of the Arts and Crafts building and will accommodate more than three times as many pat rons as the other rest room. A second floor has been built jn the big agricultural Building which to* creases the space In that building con* siderably and which makes a larger and better display fof the agricultural de^ partmeiit. Various other improvements in the auto building and dance hall will provide needed conveniences for the many who ate expected to attend the big fair again this fall. Besides the regular fair features the famous six horse team of the Chicago Union Stock Yards as well as that of the Omaha stock Yards will be seen each afternoon on the track in fancy driving exhibitions. In the evening, the splendid "Cycle of Hits" presented by the famous Thavlu and his organi- sation will pack the grand stand to capacity. Thaviu ranks with SOusa and Kryl in his fame as a bandmaster and producer, and the beautiful solo dances and vocalists together with the well trained chorus make his 1930 production a most outstanding one. Secretary Dailey of the fair association urges those of our people who plan to attend the fair to order their reserved seat tickets by mail early to order to be sure of having a seat. Should Call Park "A. D.'s Park.' Swea City Herald: A name for the Swea City municipal park is being discussed by some of our citizens with a sense of the esthetic. Wisely landscaped some ten years ago when it was laid out, the park has become a place of beauty. Its popularity Is shown by the dally gathering of parties of various kinds throughout the summer. It has become in fact a community recreation center. / The land was given to the town by A. D. Clark when the townsite was form tog. While it would be highly appropriate it for the original donor, objection Is raised to "Clark Park" because it sounds sonfewhat like a dog barking. Repeat "Clark P.ark' several times to yourself and what is your reaction? Nevertheless, the name would be highly appropriate, and a liberal handed man of a bygone generation would be properly recognized. On the other hand perhaps some other name with local significance, less jarring to euphony, can be secured' by offering a prize, the name to be selected by a committee appointed by the mayor because official recognition of the proposal is desired. Then all of us can gather at the park upon some convenient afternoon, break a bottle of town water over the flag pole, make a little whoopee and the Job would be done. Seriously, the idea is commendable. A highly successful community enterprise would be lifted from the commonplace. Washington News By Fred Holmes, Wash. Correspondent for the TX D. M.-B. Washington, September 8.—Undoub- edly it's a fortunate thing for Wash- ingtonlans and, so far as that is con- erned, for a vast majority of outsid- rs who read of the doings and undo- ngs here, that there is an occasion- 1 interlude in the stogy melodrama politics. Once in a while there omes a Lindbergh, and then an Ecker, with feats of such unprecedented kill and unparalleled intrepidity that ampaign issues, elections, inaugura- ions and even government jobs are ompletely eclipsed while tribute is iaid them by\nations. * « * Now comes a Coste, whose achievement of spanning the Atlantic was ex- elled by that of Lindbergh only in hat both the risk and glory of the ecent performance was shared by a jompanion—although it must be said that our own Lone Eagle was the >ioneer who demonstrated that it could be done. So whether administration policies are right or wrong, whether the lemocrats have maliciously maligned the president or the republicans have deliberately foisted hard times upon the country, or whether the speakeasy is preferable to the saloon for time being are not matters of moment, e « • They say that "all the world loves a lover," but it also loves a doer— particularly a doer who does things that simply can't be done. Washington was taken out of itself by Coste's accomplishment, by the fearlessness which inspired it, by the determination and skill which characterized it. by his success where others had failed at the cost of their lives. But the far-seeing ones looked beyond all personal elements and saw the cementing of a closed bond of fellowship between two great republics. Charles Lindbergh tied such a knot as no diplomat—and the late Myron T. Herrick did much—had ever before interwoven, but the strands had worked loose under the strain of war settlement bick- erings and the cordial relations established relapsed .into a state of indifference—if nothing worse. Madame Coste cabled to her gallant husband 'Vive La Prance, Vive L'Amerlque," and that was not alone an enthusiastic marital greeting. The same spirit dominated the hearts of the French people. It was a message from one great nation to another. * * * The state of Illinois was monopolizing the center of the stage when Captain Coste crowded everything poll- ;lcal into the background, and seemingly that commonwealth is now trying to elbow its way back to a position of prominence. Other states are not without their ambitions in the way ol publicity and may proclaim the importance of their own momentous contests, but the situation in Ilinois is so distractlngly novel that it excits unusual public Interest. » » • ' A woman is fighting to become the Irst of her sex to be elected to the United States senate, where her father, Mark Hanna, sat thirty-three years ago and where her late husband, Me- dlll McCormick, sat twenty-five years ater.

While Lewis is a militant wet and Mrs. McCormick personally is and always has been dry, even prohibition was thought to have been eliminated as an issue when the latter announced that she would be guided by the will of the electorate as expressed tit November's referendum. But that announcement started the wheels of the Anti-Saloon League machine and may create a situation analogous to that in New York state when Senator Wadsworth, republican wet, was opposed by a democratic wet but lost the election'because the Anti-Saloon League entered a third candidate who -divided the republican vote. • • • Then there is the question of campaign expenses, disconcerting enougn to start out with but now threatening an upheaval because .Mrs. McCormick decided to investigate her Investigators. Her _ senatorial primary campaign expenses were recently made the subject of official Inquiry by Senator Gerald P. Nye's funds committee, and during the course of the investigation Mrs. McCormick's offices were broken into, her personal and business correspondence flies were rifled and her telephone wires were tapped.' To what extent, if any, Senator Nye was responsible for these "outrages" is a matter of conjecture, but Mrs. Mf- Cormick seems to have been sure enough in her own mind to do a little snooping on her own • account. There is nothing new about hiring a sleuth to watch a sleuth, but so far no objective of congressional inquiry has been revealed In the practice. • * » Of course, excessive expenditure in a primary is regrettable, Possibly campaign expenses could be regulated by act of congress and a limit of expenditure enforced according to population or in some other manner taking into consideration very different conditions in the larger and smaller states. The states themselves may regulate their elections and they certainly can end vast primary expenditures by abolishing primaries. However, these solutions are not theatrical enough to satisfy the sensationalists in the senate, who would seenv to prefer to go tlui Purpose 1. To pay doctor b}Us. 2.

The building housed the Federal Trade Commission, the Children's Bureau and the Woman's Bureau. The fact that some of the destroyed records may be reproduced while gratifying, is not reassuring in respect to the risk the government is. running in housing valuable paper files in highly inflammable agO-by;a destructive blaze. Priceless records would be exposed to destruction, involving the titles to invention properties worth billions of dollars. Again,, a fire to the Veterans' Bureau,, with Its mass of documents relating td the- miltary .seryices of more than five million men, surviving participants in our wars, would do irreparable damage.
