STORES DISPLAY HOLIDAY GOODS. Stocks Are Complete In All Lines and Merchants Urge Early Shopping for Best Results. Algona streets were never so beautifully decorated as they are at the present time with lines of beautiful colored lights and about a dozen arches trimmed with evergreen and colored lamps so that in driving through the city's main thoroughfares you pass beneath most gorgeous arches for several blocks. f Great Values for Shoppers. Algona stores have complete stocks of all kinds of merchandise and prices are unusually low with numerous honest sales In progress. Stores are being decorated and holidays goods are being displayed. It is just three weeks until Christmas and merchants are urging early buying which is a big advantage to the buyer Who is able to' make his selection from a complete stock Instead of one that has been picked over. Shop and mail early Is the slogan this season and fortunate are those who take advantage of the early buy. More merchandise can be purchased today for a dollar than for many years. Clothing and wearing apparel of al kinds, often suitable gifts at this season of the year as preparation is made for the cold wintry blasts and ,snow that invariably visits this section can be purchased from our merchants a 1 reduced prices. It is very evident that prices of many articles of necessity are gona merchants are sparing no pains to-prepare for the,-Christmas shopper and the early buyer will profit. Wolf Howls Heard at Edge of Algona. F. D. Williams and C. H. Chapman manager of the A. & P. store, are convinced that they heard a wolf in the vicinity of their homes Tuesday evening about ten o'clock. Mr. Williams heard the howl and immediately thought it was a wolf, but dismissed the idea as rather incredulous, particularly so when It was followed by the barking of dogs. This morning he met C. H. Chapman and Mr. Chap- man asked him if lie had heard the same thing he heard Tuesday night "When he mentioned the wolf howl Mr Williams at once recalled the incident and the men are sure that there must have been a wolf in the vicinity. The timber which runs along the river al the north'edge of town comes close to the Williams house, and it is possible that a wolf would find its way there. Mr. Chapman lives in the (Wesfsel house in the same block with the Williams home. His father-in-law, who lives with him, and who has In the past been familiar with the wolf howl, also recognized the cry, a peculiar one, which once heard, is always remembered. Mr. Williams had heard them while hunting up north at various times. "HARD TIMES." Christmas Seal Drive Now on in Algona. The annual Christmas seal drive is on in Algona and the customary procedure of having the school children sell them has been abandoned this year and a number of seals have been sent through the mails to various individuals. The money is then sent to Mrs. C. A. Sampson, the chairman. If the seals are not wanted they are to be returned to her. The Iowa Tubercular association is back of the drive. Last year Algona sold enough stamps to furnish milk for six children while the quota was seventeen. The Christmas seal drive is a praiseworthy undertaking and everybody should get behind it and do their bit. This year conditions will be much worse than in previous years and local people should dig up. Young Algonian Caught as Runaway- Herbert, fourteen year old son of Mr. and Mrs. Prank Butts, started to run away last night for Sioux City. He hooked a ride with a Holcroft truck from Sioux City and was on his way. Officers in the surrounding towns were notl'fied and the lad was picked up at Humboldt, where his father went af- 4er lum. It seems that the boy skipped school and was reprimanded at home. He then decided that he would travel his own path and get out from under parental supervjsoin and the restraining influence of grade school. Morgans Leave For Trip West Mr. and Mrs. H. B. Morgan expected to leave- Saturday in their car for California, where they will spend the wittier. They expect to go south first and will visit in Louisiana and Texas pn their way to the coast. "Hard. Times in Texas," an editorial in the Cotulla (Texas) Record, follows: "We are having hard times in Texas; the Streets are full of automobiles, going, as Will Rogers says, nowhere in particular, but in a great hurry to get there; times are so hard that it is difficult to find parking places for our Btftomobiles; we have only about one for every three of us in the state; if times were not hard we would no doubt all have an automobile. "We are right up against It; we saw a girl last week so hard up she did not have silk Stockings, and rather than wear rayon she wore none at all; of the thousands of girls in Texas, it is almost unbelievable that one should have to do without silk stockings, but that Is not all—the consumption of cigarettes increased only about 5,000,000 packages In the sltate last year, whereas everybody knows it should have increased twice that amount. "Times are sure hard—we were able to obtain a seat at the movie after waiting only (twenty minutes, when by right we should have had to wait at least an hour; the drug store got along by Installing only two extra fountains this. ummer, which shows how bad things really are, but an extra showcase for lipstick, two extra racks for magazines, and a lunch counter cut into the druggist's earnings and made him realize how hard times are. "And to make things worse, every vacant lot In America has a miniature golf course on it and it looks like times are getting so hard that they're go- iny to have to stai<t tearing down perfectly good buildings to make room for more peewee golf courses. And if a fellow wants to play on one of the pesky things he has to wait nearly an hour before he can get to start, and then gets run over, knocked down and hit by golf balls before he finishes. Every one of the miniature courses is crowded day and night. Yes, times are hard. "When will tunes be better? It.'s almost impossible to find a parking space near.a movie theater, miniature golf course or other place of amusement—a terrible condition. Something really out to be done to. require the , -„,,,.,,... ,.,...,,,™,.. crowds, and v this way of building grandstands," movie theaters, stadiums and other places of amusement only half large enough to feeat those attending ought to be handled vigorously. "Yes, times are hard; the grocer can hardly sell flour, grits or bacon; it takes all of Ills time to sell canned peaches, canned salmon, canned soup, canned meats and canned apple sauce; the dry goods merchant is crying because his bolts of gingham, muslin and denim remain on his shelves, while the clerks waste all their time selling such things as silk and rayon; the hardware store has no demand for plows, wire fencing and nails, but he cannot supply the demands for radios, electric, percolators, vacuum cleaners, et cetera. Yes, the times are hard." Dinner in Honor of Judge Lovrien. The Kossuth county bar will give a dinner Thursday at the New Algona in honor of Judge Lovrien who retires from the bench. Judge Lovrien was appointed Judge by Governor Hammill September 1, 1929, to fill the vacancy caused by the resignation of Judge Coyle and during his services as judge he has made many friends throughout the district. Judge Lovrien will leave Humboldt soon after the first of the year and move to Spencer where he will join LeRoy Rader, a prominent attorney in that city, in the law firm of Lovrien & Rader. Fire Dept. Called to Extinguish Truck Fire. A Ford creamery truck belonging to the Algona Cooperative creamery was partly destroyed by fire Sunday about r.-oon. The truck is driven by Loren Crawford to collect cream Ir. the rural districts, and at the time of the five was parked between the creamery and the C. S. Johnson store. It is supposed that gas ran down the nip? line to the manifold when the tank was filled, and when the car was started it bock- fired and the gas became ignited. The fire department was called to cxtin- ;uish the fire. ALGONA TIED EAGLETS 6-6 Cold Weather and Icy Field Spoil Annual Turkey Day G-ame Here. ALGONA SHOWED UP AS BETTER TEAM. Bolh Scores Were Result of Intercepted Passes. Neither Team Came Within Scoring Distance After. A fair crowd of shivering football bugs saw ithe annual scrap between Algona and Eagle Grove last Thanksgiving day end in a 6 to 6 tie. The field was like a frozen lake and the players could not keep their feet for cutbacks or dodges and consequently there were no long runs with the exception of the two touchdowns, which came from an Intercepted lateral pans and a forward pass. Both runs were for approximately forty yards. Algona scored first in the second quarter when Moore, local center, intercepted an Eagle pass and sprinted forty yards for the goal with perfect interference. Not one opponent touched him. Intercepted Lateral. Eagle Grove scored in the third quarter when their right end pulled an Algona lateral out of the air and dashed forty years for a touchdown. He, also, was not touched. Neither team could get the ball through the uprights for the extra point. Neltiher team threatened to score again although the locals outplayed the Eaglets throughout the game, but could not get going on account of the cold and the icy footing. Once late in the game a long pass from Ostrum found Blossom in the clear but the latter's hands were so cold he could not hang onto it, and the chance for a Bulldog victory was gone. ,to : the,. ln» Former Algona Boy Wins Murder Case. Kossuth county people will be Interested in knowing that Ernest Raymond, a son of the late County Attorney J. C. Raymond, has attained prominence at the bar in the west where he has been practicing for many years. His father was a resident of LuVerne when he was elected county attorney of Kossuth county In the nineties. After leaving the office Squire Raymond and his family moved to LaCrosse, Wisconsin, where he died. Ernest went west and located at Newcastle, Wyoming, where lie has served for several terms on the bench as a federal Judge, and is now practicing law. Judge Raymond was chief council for Keith Mead, charger! with murder in a gun battle with Head and his father on one side and an outlaw named "Blackle" Wolfe on the other side last April. "Blackie" was slain by tha younger Mead after he had shot the father. The.'trial lasted for a week or so and attracted wide attention. Judge Raymond made the closing plea for the defense and Mead was acquitted. Vinson Saw Army- Notre Dame Game. , Howard M. Vinson and family drove to Gary, Indiana, last Wednesday, where they spent Thanksgiving at his sisters. He warited to see the Notre Dame-Army game but had not secured a ticket. He was down at the stadium and saw scalpers selling tickets I for fifty cents, but was afraid to buy one. He approached a policeman and asked him where he could by a ticket as the ticket offices were closed. The policeman took off his cap and taking out a ticket said here is one I had for a friend but guess he is not coming and gave itj to him. He had a good seat and says he enjoyed the game even if it was raining. They left Gary at seven a. m. Sunday and arrived home at midnight. TEACHERS'INSTITUTE HELD NEXT FRIDAY Kossuth County Teachers to Attend Inspirational Meeting in Algona. JUDGE QUARTON TO GIVE A SPEECH. All County Schools Will be Closed. Teachers Atlrnd oil Full Pay. A Good Program. v, Ingham and Cowles Talk with Hoover. Former Algona men have been in Washington, D. C., advising President Hoover just what the conditions are in Iowa. Last week Gardner Cowles, publisher of the Des Moines Register, had dinner with Mr. and Mrs. Hoover at the White House. This week Harvey Ingham, editor of the Des Moines Register was in Washing;on attending the opening session of congress. He was a visitor at the White House Tuesday and was in conference with the president. Mr. Hoover shows good Judgment when he .asks he opinions of two such well informed men as Ingham and Cowles. District Bar Banquet to be Held in Algona. Members of the district bar will hold their annual banquet In Algona Thursday, December 20. Many prominent attorneys from all over the state will >e In attendance and a fine program will be given. .game all year,' : but they were primed, as usual, to give Algona the fight of their lives. Both teams resorted to punting with varied success and the yards were somewhat in favor of Eagle Grove. End Run Stopped. Blinkman in the back field, was the shining light for Algona. He was charging like a veteran and every time he took Ithe pigskin he was good for a gain. The line was charging fast and using their hands to a great advan.- tage, and the visitors had no chance of gaining against them. It was virtually impossible for either team to make a wide end run due to the slipperiness of the fiield and forward passing was not accurate on account of the cold weather. It would be unfair to pick out any individual star for Algona as all the boys played a bang-up game of football. Moore showed that he was on his toes when he intercepted the pass but he would never have been able to pilt it across without the splendid blocking of some five or six other Algona players. Line Flay Good. The Algona line was frequently breaking through and throwing the Eagle ball carrier for a loss and nearly always stopping them at the line of scrimmage. The backfield was blacking up the line to a fare-you-well and stopped any opposing runner who by chance goJt through the line of scrimmage. The game was a hardship on both the crowd and the players due to the intense cold. The players were compelled to wear gloves which handicapped them to a great extent. The spectators wore everything but the kitchen stove to keep them warm. Had Fair Success. The Algona team had a fair season this year, losing Ito Mason City, Fort Dodge, Clarion and Estherville and winning from Hampton, Humboldt and Clear Lake and also playing tie games with Brltt junior college and Eagle Grove. Coach Bonham worked hard with the boys and deserves a lot of credit for the team's showing. The boys were more or less inexperienced and the back field was very light. The coach and the boys who are left are already making plans for next year and intend to put a fighting team in the field. A number of first string will be lost to'the squad for next year, but there are some good men coming up who will no doubt fill the shoes of the departing ones. Chicago Traveler to Speak in Algona. A.

Editor Coleman of the LuVerne News was being chaperoned around Algona last Saturday by Hal Rogers, well known former editor of that paper who after making a fortune in the newspaper business, is now taking life a little easier. Editor Coleman is giving LuVerne a very good paper as did Mr. Rogers before him. Editor Coleman has made many friends since coming to LuVerne, and Is one of those genial fellows whom everyone likes.

The Upper DCS Mollies- Republican will next week be^ln the publication of n serial storv by the liuo Herbert Quick and Eb'ia Stepanolf MacMu • lion. Any story by Herbert Quick 1<= of interest to Kossuth county mil Iowa people, and this story written In collaboration with a famous Russia.! author, will be welcomed in Ahtom nnd Kossuth county, where Mr. Quick spoilt n number of years of his youn;; manhood. Herbert Quick was at tho head of the Wesley schools for a time in the 80's and later was an attorney at Sioux City, where he served as mayor for a term or two. His novels of early days in Iowa, "Vandeninrk's Polly," "The Hawkcyc," and "The Invisible Woman" have been high among the boat selling books of the middle west. His untimely death a few years ago has been much regretted by Ills Iowa friends. "Wo Have Changed All That' is the title of the last story published by Mr. Quick, who visited Siberia before his death. The story tells of the life of the Russian nobility and a silver thread of romance brightens the dark pages of the bloodshed of the Revolution. The story will begin in the Upper Des Moines-Republican next week. Local Fans Attend Army-N. D. Game. A number of football fans from this vicinity attended the Notre Dame- Army football game last Saturday in Soldiers' Field, Chicago. Those from Algonp. were Mr. and Mrs. H. W. Pletch, Dr. and Mrs. F. C. Scanlon, L. 13. Linnan, H. W. Miller and W. W. Sullivan. The game was a disappointment to most fans as it was played in a downpour of rain and the field was a quagmire. Neither team could get started until Schwartz of Notre Dame broke off tackle In the waning moments of play and dashed fifty-four yards for a touchdown. Carideo kicked goal, making the score 7 to 0 In favor of the Irish. It looked like the game would end that way but with three minutes ito go Army blocked a Notre Dame punc and recovered for a touchdown. They failed to kick goal, however,- and the flnal-:j??pr6 was 7.to~ft,in favor of Notre Dame. All die spectators were saturated from, (the rain and many were saturated both from the rain and from liquid which was taken internally. Never since the saloon days has there been BO much liquid refreshments in evidence with no regard for secrecy. There were bottles everywhere, flashing and gurgling. It would seem that the majority of red-blooded Americans were not taking the prohibition law as seriously as Dr. Clarence True Wilson and his board of temperance and public morals would like to have them. At any rate there were only a few fights and these just helped take their minds oil the rain. Jharged and Indicted for Illegal Possesion of Intoxicating Liquor. JURY WAS OUT AFTER MIDNIGHT. Dloms cr-Lnrson Damage Case Called Tliis Morning. Result of an AutomobKc Accident. Officers Have No Clues to Mink Thieves. Officers have not arrived at) any solution of the mink robbery last week when thieves stole over $3,000 worth of Alaskan mink from Merle Wcllendorf's pens west of the fair grounds. The thieves used cyanide gas to put the mink to sleep so there would be no noise. In all probability the animals have been pelted and the pelts sold. If so it will be a hard job to catch them. Creamery Truck Burned Sunday- Sunday morning the Algona fire department was called to the Algona creamery, where one of the cream trucks was burning. The fire is supposed to have started from the wiring. The cab was badly burned and the truck was otherwise damaged. The fire whistle drew a large crowd to the scene but the fire fighters soon ex- tinguislKjd the blaze. Farewell Party Was Held at Fenton. Relatives of Mrs. John Boevers held a farewell party in her honor at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Herman Gaade last week Thursday evening. Mrs. Boevers has spent frhe past several months visiting relatives and friends in this community. She left Sunday morning, accompanied by her niece, Mrs. Viola Mitchell, for her home in El Reno, Oklahoma. The following guests were present; Mr. and Mrs. Chris Widdel, the Walter and Harry Widdel families, Mrs. Carrie Haase of Fairmont, Mr. and Mrs. Harry Haase and daughter, Misses Nettie and Gladys Welsbrod, and Mr. and Mrs. A. H. Meyera and family of this place and Leonard Haase of Donnelson. Senatorial Districts Should be Changed. Mason City Gazette: If the ap- pi caching Iowa legislature confines Us redlstricting activities to congressional boundaries, it will be leaving unfinished ut least half its job in the flel-t. The alteration of congressional districts is, of course, compelled by federal enactment. But the law of common sense ought to prevail with respect to late senatorial districts. Jackson county is a senatorial district unto Itself. So is Clayton county. Cerro Gordo county shares representation with Hancock and Franklin counties, with a total population of approximately 70,000. Mason City's population alone Is 5,000 greater than that of Juckson county and only slightly less than Clayton county's population. But if the most eloquent reason for senatorial redlstricting is desired, let us turn to the district of which Kossuth county is a part. Here are five counties, one of them in reality a double county both as to area and population, with a total population of about 80,000. These 80,000 citizens have only one voice and one vote in the upper house of the assembly. This is about us close to a disfranchisetnent as anything that can be found in our representative government. There Is immediate need for bringing the senatorial districts down to date and the assemblymen should proceed- to their task with as much earnestness as they will evince as they turn to the congressional rcdistricing task. Court reconvened Tuesday of this week with Judge F. C. Lovrien on the bench. The first jury case of the terra was that of the state vs Ross Ocster- reicher, who lives at Tltonka.- Ccsterreicher was indicted lost Wednesday by the grand Jury which also brought in Indictments on the following cases: state vs John Kressin; state vs Fred Schultz and state vs Charlotte Schwartz. The case of state vs C. E. Johnson, which involved an altercation over a cow, was dismissed. In the case of state vs John Kressin of Letts Creek, the defendant was charged with abandoning his wife and children. In the cases of state vs Fred Schultz and state vs Charlotte Schwartz both of Ledyard, the defendants were charged with making false statements of credit to tho Farmers Savings Bank of Ledyard for the purpose of obtaining an extension of credit. In the case of state, vs. Oesterrelch- er in which the defendant was charged with the attempted bribery of an officer, the case was dismissed. This case grew out of the case heard Tuesday in which the defendant was being tried for illegal possession of liquor. It appears that officers saw Oester- relcher one night and*heard cans rattling. They turned on a light and saw him standing near two gallon cans, one full and the other half full of alcohol. He denied that they belonged to him and these facts evidently caused th difference of opinion with the jurors. Oesterreloher was represented in court by T. P. Harrington and the state by G. D. Shumway. The case aro$e over a colsaion between" a-oar drlyen by Virgil Blomster and one driven By. Qua Larson, that mcT^arBuWSr"tne r r sumrner -af-the 5 intersection on the Fairmont road north of Swea City. Both cars were badly damaged < r ,and Mr. Blomster brought suit to recover. The jury was out until after midnight but came to no decision. The Jury" was composed of Henry Scheppman and George C. Allen, Burt; John Zeller, Jr.', Bode; John Capesius, Algona; Lucille Smith, Algona; Harry Hobson, Lone Rock; W. T. John, Algona; Tommy Nielsen, Fenton; L. O. Hanson, Al" gona; Andrew Godfretjson, Algona and Maurice Pike, Armstrong. John Simon of Riverdale township, was appointed guardian of the estate of his mother, Mrs. Maggie Simon, I who is the widow of a Civil war veteran. The case of Blomster vs Larson, two northend residents, involves an automobile accident which both parties were in, and which occurred a month o'. - so ago. This case is now being tried as we go to press. The jury is composed of May Herman, Algona; L. C. Hanson, Algona; John Voss, LuVerne; J, H. Fraser, Algona; Lucille Smith, Algona; Edna Welsbrod, Fenton; Mary Nelson, Algona; A. E. Kresensky, Algona; Henry Scheppman, Burt; Tommy Nielsen, Fenton; Ernest Leudtke, Lone Rock and W. T. John, Algona. Sullivan, McMahon & Linnan are representing Larson and Van Ness & Stillman are appearing for the plaintiff. Tins is Judge Lovrien's last term on the bench in Algona and after the first of the year he will start practicing law in Spencer. The local attorneys are honoring him with a banquet tomorrow night. Algona People Were in Auto Accident. Several Algona. people, including Earl Stcininan, one of the Lichter boys and two ladies had an automobile accident Sunday in which one of the ladies and Earl Steinman were badly bruised. They were taken to the hospital where their wounds were dressed and they are all reported as doing nicely at thia time. Correction. It was Miss Mildred Bowen, a school teacher from LuVerne, and not Mrs. W. J. Bourne, as reported last week, who was driving the oar which collided with the John Blinkman car driven by Lilly Blinkman at the corner of North and Thorington streets. Miss Blinkman is still confined to her bed, but is recovering as well as can be expected from a wrenched back and internal injuries, and it is thought that she will be able to return to her duties at the Graham store In about a week. : L Delinquent Tax Sale Was Held Monday. The annual tax sale of Kossuth county property with delinquent taxes was held at the court house Monday. A good crowd was 'in attendance and farm land taxes were generally paid or purchased by some one Interested. Town lots, however, did not receive much spirted bidding. Several purchasers of this property were present from outside towns. Improving the Call Opera House Here. N. C. Rice of the Call Opera House is making a number of marked improvements. The former Gift Shop will now be a part of the lobby and the office -used by Lathrop & Weaver for many years as an abstract office will also be given a new front similar to the north entrance. This change will probably cause Lathrop & Weaver to seek new quarters. Temperature Goes to Nearly Zero. Three days last week and Monday of this week were down nearly to the zero mark, but it then crept up and the weather was fairly warm. The temperature for the week is as follows: High Low Wednesday 21 1 Thursday 17 3 Friday 18 1 Saturday 37 17 Sunday 43 33 Monday 33 2 Tuesday 31 1? i
