The cities are filled with holdup men and women j and bootleggers and automobile accidents are frequent as some drive f|orty and fifty miles an hour if they can get by with it. A Correction. The Upper Des Momes-Republican last week mistakenly reported that an M. E. DeWolfe of Spencer had been adjudged a bankrupt in the federal court. It was taken for granted that the DeWolfe mentioned in the papers was the same man who conducts the Kossuth County Chick Hatchery in Algona. It seems that the DeWolfe mentioned in the papers, was not the Algona hatchery man at all, although his name, even to the initials were exactly the same. Of course the mistake is much rgretted by this paper, which has had very pleasant business relations with Mr. DeWolfe since he located his hatchery in Algona, always finding him to be a man of strict integrity in his dealings and a man who paid all obligations promptly. The Kossuth County Hatchery has been very successful and its financial backing is not to be questioned. The hatchery will of cour-se be continued in Algona and it should receive the same splendid patronage that it has heretofore enjoyed.
