We have seen a little nd heard much of Its amazing hlntcr- and. We learned about its forests, nany of varieties of the wood which aye a specific gravity greater than r ater and so when a log is cut and ushed into the river It sinks Instead f floating down to the sea. Wo have pt only tasted, but smelled Its coffee, lied high in giant warehouses. We were even told snake stories hereto a Ford coupe made a nice reakfast and we cannot forget the statellness of its palms which bent Just enough to innate a greeting to the tourist, while the Incomparable beauty of Uie bay and the city of Rio will ever remain among the fairyland dreams of o<ir tour. But there retrains the Argentine. Our tickets stipulate a visit to that land and a few samples of Its specialties I shall try to gather up In this letter after our tour of Agentlna ffom from England, and the Japanese "Marus." At this dock where Philip met us we land. We hailed a taxi and bump over the Cobble stone streets to ' Philip's apartment some ten blocks away. Strangeness Is everywhere* The narrow one way streets cut out from between the three to five story building? and fun miles in all directions. The fotif foot walks leave twenty feet for feutos and street cars. Built largely from brick, plastered with stucco to resemble stone or marble, the buildings tell their own Spanish tale of architecture, la the streets, a veritable fleet of Lincoln, Bulck or Packard taxis of the most costly models, speed by you. A police man with gleaming sword sheath stands at . most intersections Ancient structures greet you at many a turn, while granite columns and marble entrances distinguish the banks « n * \ 68 ' wm carry the mau north . and wlU leave Burt at 12:35 p, m. and south at train Is made.

Slagle, a former Algona man, died at his home at Cylinder on Monday morning following an Illness of about a year with hardening of the arteries. Charles H. Slagle was born in Goodhue county, Minnesota, January .10, 1858, and was seventy-two years of age. When a lad of eleven years his parents moved to Algona where he attended the public schools and the old college and grew to manhood. When a young man.^teamed. telegre and entereubne^empioy^M^Bnts v^r^Sj- N. W. railroad, being located at Burt for nearly twenty years. He then transferred to the O. M. & St. P. railroad and served as agent at Ruthven for a number of years, later accepting the position at Cylinder. Mr. Slagle was married twice, his flrst wife preceding him In death. Two children were born of this marriage. August Slagle and Mrs. Elva Mason of this city are the survivors. Mr. Slagle again married and Mrs. Slagle and five children are left to mourn. Frank H. Slagle of this city is a brother and was at his bedside when he died. Funeral services were held this morning from the Emmetsburg Catholic church and burial was made In the Catholic cemetery at that pjac*. As one goes along looking and listening and asking questions, ho becomes saturated with a lot of facts and figures and I think they may be of interest to some one at home The Argentine, larger than all the United States cast of the Mississippi river, has 20,000,000 head of horses and mules. It has 40,000,000 head of cattle/consisting of Hereford, Durham and Angus strains, the quality of which Is attested by the fact that a single bull has been sold for 5000 pounds sterling. It also has 50,000,000 head of sheep and lambs feeding not only on the great plains, but also far up the slopes of the Andes. England Is; taking the major part of her meat supply from these herds. The Argentine has a railway system equal to the seven trunk lines from New York to Frisco. It has 20,000,000 acres of alfalfa, Which under Industrious hands, Is being turned-Into butter and beef steak. It garners cher- and exchanges. The dark skins of the Latin race with their darker eyes and smaller bodies arrest Immediate attention. Many look old, though young, and beautiful faces are not often met. .First Floor Stores. The stores are mainly on the flrst floor, with flats or apartments above whose alcove windows protrude Into the streets, many of which have the added decoration of a senora behind the balustrade. Many of the walks are paved with four r inch colored tile stones. There are no alleys and no telephone poles to obstruct or disfigure the views. They ajso have no fire In ninety per cent of the homes.

Import Machinery. S Is that enough statistics, or shall I add that the Argentine grinds its own flour, bottles Its own wine, brews Its own beer? Bananas are twelve cents a dozen, oranges two cents > a piece and a three pound lamb or beef roast Is passed over the market counter for steel window slides and grated door entrances; guard both property and person through the night. Massive iron fences are around the churches and across the entrances of banks and public buildings. Thousands of small stores, some of them only booths, but many 'large ones, equipped with the finest of fabrics and the costliest of merchandise are In the city. Skyscrapers are only here and there as yet, while out on _the fringe of the city innumerable one story plastered brick houses appear. Not a frame building can be seen. Cutting across the heart of the city, one'way runs the splendid Avenlda De Mayo, which leads from the president's official mansion to Congress Hall, while at.right angles to it Is Avenlda Florida, closed to all cars at five p. m. when It becomes the dress parade boulevard of the city's populace. In order to keep the thirst of its denizens .under perfect control, the ubiquitous saloon is buttressed by permitting every grocery store to carrj: (rtocks of wine, whiskey and champagne. Beneath "the streets a subway Is burrowing out a network of underground thoroughfares for the three million people Beunos Aires will have by 1940. In the stores, in the trains, In the, great-passenger busses throng the people, and as yotrlisten to their talk, which goes on like Tennysons's brook,: forever, and which is always punctuated by gesticulations of hands, and contortions of the body, you think how neglected their education has been 'It's a Boy !"

NORTHWESTERN BELL TIB1.BPHONE COMPANY want to mention; tiie Incident that sh Imported from the United States in 1929 more than $35,000,000 worth o farm machinery of every character. I included planters, cultivators, tractors windmills and cream separators. Un derlying this transaction they enter tain the idea that a part of the bil at least should be cancelled by our taking some of their corn or meat This seems a fair proposition and any< one can mull over it at then- leisure But when I think of the thousands o people hi the east and some in the west, are compelled to pay fifty cents a pound for meat, I think a reciprocal as, well as beneficial formula could be found to aid Argentina to pay for her needs and at the same time help break the strangle hold on the price of retal meat In America, If this Is not done within a few years this southern republic will turn a few million more acres of4he pampas into wheat lands and thus be able to dump an additional 100,000,000 bushels of wheat on a world market already glutted. If this would be too severe on Kansas and Dakota it might be planted to corn, an outcome which I suspect would interest the Iowa farmer. And thus it becomes very plain, if our radicals Insist on such unfair legislation why the Argentine and South America can not help but wonder If the Monroe 'Doctrine itself will not some day be selfishly twisted away from its original purpose. But this is another story, and no part of my tale, Founded by Spaniards. Now, passing many national details and facts of much Interest, I am coming down to look with bewildered eyes upon the capital city of the Argentine republic. I wish to take a closer view cosmopolitan city of Founded some four of this great Beunos Aires. hundred years ago by Spanish explorers, it has grown until it now numbers two and a quarter million people. Into the bay and along its miles of extended docks come the steamships of the world. I saw nearly every flag, <5O/0 Worthq Purpose 1.

Yet one more very essential detail must be added. One hundred parks and plazas have been placed Within,its limits, like oases in a desert. Some of them are small, but several containing hundreds of acres. It would take a volume to describe their beauty. Tropical trees still linger here.. Sunken gardens and foliage designs along the walk ways, touched by wizard hands, grow in crescents and scrolls out of the grass shaven plats. And added to what nature has been taught to produce and supplying its touch of pure white to this green background, rise statues and monuments of artistic and historic worth. In one plaza, the national hero San Martin, mounted upon his horse, stands ready 'to ride forward. In another a sixty foot shaft of Columbus placed upon the deck of one of his ships, peers out over the sea, while tugging at the base are several of his crew seeking to launch that >oat. And these are but samples of jronze heroes or marble nymphs that embellish the plazas. Lazzoretta. District. But people do not live in the parks, neither do they all have big stores, and dwell in fine homes. Join me in joing down to the. lazzaretta district, ;he street fronting the river wharfs. [ call it the Arcade Avenue, to be po- "ite to its occupants and to indicate its unique construction. The buildings ire of old Moorish pattern and extend ;welve feet or more out over the flag- itone walks, and are supported by immense square columns, plastered with yellow stucco. Outside the curb, paved with granite blocks, move an Inextric-. able Jam of trucks, tramways, taxis, autobusses and the primitive one horse shays, and the two wheel cart. Inside the curb, and under the Arcade is a spectacle worthy of a Dickens' pen or a Rubens' brush. Here bickers and jarters every variety of small business. ;n shops and nooks and booths they buzz and swarm. Cafes, saloons, shoe shops, novelties, lottery Joints, haberdasheries, shooting'galleries, tamale casters, fish stalls, barber shops, boot >lacks, gambling holes, cigar stands, gun stalls, billiard tables, snake charmer, beggars, vendors, and peddlers >loom side by side. They protrude, hey ooze out onto the walks. Crowd- nig and Jostling the people move along as best they can. The street exhibits every species of the human race. It gathers to }tself the flotsam and the etsam of the world. The traveler, the eaman, the adventurer, the gambler, he wine bibber, the birds with broken pinions, the near criminal and the /oung man seeking his fortune, the ndian, the Chinaman, the Jew and ;he QentUe are cast up by the sea and he ebb of the tide leaves them under he Arcade.

Leper colonies exist but complete Isolation Is not enforced. They have no compulsory education. They had no roads worth mentioning. They have no great middle class owning the land and turning it Into successful and contented homes Not only the coffee plantations of Brazil, but the cattle ranches of Argentina are conducted largely on the landlord and peon system, and they have no government worth extolling, but rather a domination, held by the eighty odd year old Xrogoyen, full of graft—rotten with corruption, ripe for revolt. But forgetting all these and remembering the stretches of fertile soil, the great river arteries flowing from the far Interior down to the sea, the many varieties of fruits and foods, they produce; the Imperial city perched on the bank of the River of Silver and also the fine hospitality which seems to spontaneously grow and expand under these southern skies, then you will start home with a little regret, but also the hope that out from, under the dark political clouds in time will-emerge a better people, more wisely ruled.—Will F.
