When the first settlers catoe late this western country and made their homes, they were fortunate to recelvt their mail once a month nnd then i was usually brought to the settlemen by Borne one who had been to thi nearest trading point for food o" by some one traveling through the country on foot or horseback. Later as they grew in number and population the government started star routes for the purpose of carrying the malls to the various outposts and settlements. Then etage lines were established carrying mall, express and passengers. When the railroads came, the stages and star routes were discontinued and the mails came quicker and more regular by rail. The automobile hns now stepped In and passengers and merchandise are carried In busses and freight trucks and the railroads have been up against a money-losing proposition. This has resulted in the annulment of many mall trains throughout the country and the government Is again establishing star routes for the delivery of mail from some central point to towns and villages not supplied with good railway service. The recent order annulling passenger trains between Burt and Elmore, leavas Bancroft and Ledyard with very poor man service. This means that eventually a star route trill be established sooner or later be- { tsreen these and other places that will give quicker and better service. Busses in many places now carry mail and it Is highly probable that in the near future, mall clerks will be employed on the busses as they now are on the mail trains and in transcontinental uce BANK ROBBERIJES. Bank robberies are becoming almost a daily occurrence in Iowa. A few years ago they blew up banks, usual" ly at night, but now they walk boldly into a bank and command "hands up and begin operations of looting the institution of all Cash hi sight. They are always well armed, their plans of working and escape carefully made and anyone not complying with then* demands is hi grave danger. In the first place it takes men with nerve to pull a bank robbery and they well know She consequences if captured. As a result they take as few chances as xwslble and as a matter of self-pro- ection will shoot to kill. Organized as they, are, in gangs with nil kinds of | m every direction artillery and perhaps a machine gun ' or two they have a big advantage over the banks and the public. There seems o be but one sensible thing for n banker to do, and that is, obey their commands. He can not afford to take a chance with desperate men who have he drop on him. With laws prohibit- ng the sale and toting of fire arms, H seems these fellows have no trouble in securing all the guns and ammunition hey desire. After Uncle Sam com- elled all mail clerks to carry a gun •hile on duty and shoot to kill, with a beral reward for the capture of mail robbers, the number of robberies has ecreased to a minimum. Little Hollandale Ships Potatoes, Gamer Leader: Shipment of 26 cars 6f potatoes and onions into Garnet on one train Friday, from fields in the muck lands about Hayfleld, Crystal Lake, Crystal Siding fchd Hawley, constituted illustration of the vast amount of produce that is being raised on these newly developed areas. During the Week a total of 76 car loads were shipped out of this prolific region. trice conditions are reversed from That they were a year ago, with potatoes bringing the better returns. Spuds are selling at $1.50 to $2.25 per hundred pounds, with yields that vary from" one hundred bushels' an acre upwards to the top yield that has been reported of 326 bushels per acre. While the market for onions returns only 65c to 80o per hundred pounds, differential in price is made by a larger yield, for the onions will yield 400 to 800 jushels per acre. When it is known that a car will carry either 25,000 pounds of onions or 30,000 pounds of )otatoes, it is apparent that the shipments made the past week have reached an immense volume. Yet this is not the end of it. At the rate the produce is moving it will ake until the first of November to i move the full crop out of the muck and area.

Obituary of Mrs. George Zanke._ Mrs. George J. Zanke, formerly Tollie M.

Mrs. Zanke is survived by her husband, George, and father, Lewis Gowen of Ottawa, both of whom accompanied the remains here. A few days before her death she requested that Father T. J. Davern preach the funeral sermon and that she be buried with the remains of the late Joseph J. Zanke, who came to Algona in 1870. The funeral services were held at eight-thirty o'clock Thursday morning in Algona at St. Cecelia's church.

Washington, September 22.—Not ev- sn a government-empowered investigating committee could have found anyone in Washington who sat up all night awaiting returns from the several state primaries held this week. In fact, considering all of the hubbub raised by the politicians over the national import of the results, the lack of public interest was amazing The daily press duly chronicled the outcomes but there were no "scare-heads" and apart from that on the LaFollette avalanche in Wisconsin but little comment. One listened in vain for that heretofore inevitable "I told you so," and that banal "I knew it all the time," and that apologetic "Well, that doesn't mean anything, anyway." •• • • That President Hoover's naming of three more members of his not yet fully grown tariff commission should have created more than a ripple of in- f— — - *.-o--w«x.«» j WU»U V»<AVA JA1UUC *il41IlCl f *. i i.

Many Newspapers in a Delicate Position. Fenton Reporter: The Reporter finds itself in a peculiar predicament in this campaign. Here we have a home man seeking re-election for representative on the republican ticket with whom we have no fault to find. Then comes along a good democrat (on the party ticket represented by this paper) seeking election to the same office on tho opposite ticket. Not wishing to be unfair to Mr. Jensen we shall not support either candidate other than give space to any statement either of them cares to make through the columns of this paper or to reproduce such comment as we may deem of news value to our readers concerning the candidates from some of our exchanges between now and election. portant state primaries is considered a source of wonder here.

But his duties were far from being so onerous as to make a continuance of his active service for forty-two days a menace to his recovery, and his resignation at this time is not looked upon here as a fitting climax to a long and enviable career. It may be natural for him to be disgruntled— as all of us are— over the necessity for the practice of econo- i my.
