We were maitifled November 20, and left for Florida, November 22, arriving here November 26. We drove 1327 miles in five days. It rained on us some the last day, but is clear and cool today. Found my daughter and family just fine. We will stay here till spring, and then go back to Illinois to live on my little farm near Minonk on which there is a modern six room cottage. I rent the farm land out and we will keep chickens and perhaps a cow. There is quite a few fruit trees, apples and peaches on the place and some small fruit and I expect to set out more in the spring. A year from now' If nothing happens we expect to drive to California, and may come through Algona at that time. I sure would like to see all my many old Algona friends. I see hi the Tampa morning paper that the middle west has had quite a severe storm and cold wealther. Hoping this finds all my old friends enjoying good health, I must close for ;his time. Please send my paper to this address till further orders as I sure like to hear from the old town each- week, 1216 S. Howard Ave., Tampa, Florida.

Monitor: Turn back the pages of time twenty-eight years when self- propelled vehicles were still pretty uncommon and the roads—well, the least said about the roads in those days, the better. There appeared at that time in Burt an Orient buckboard, the property of Dr. W. T. Peters. This was the first automobile In Burt and the first In Kossuth county that could be operated successfully. It was a one-cylinder affair, manufactured in Waltham, Massachusetts, and cost $650, Incldently about the price of the low-priced cars today. Dr. Peters used this car in his practice for several years when the roads permitted, and many an individual got his or her first glimpse of the new "horseless carriage." When the buckboard was supplanted by later automobile models, Dr. Peters kept the old rig and from time to time it has been taken out and given a run up and down the street. For many years it has been something of a relic and now Joins the antique class. Last week W. H. Godden of Algona "borrowed" the old machine and took it to Des Moines where it was entered Saturday In the "history of transportation" pageant and parade celebrating the completion of 1,040 miles of paving this year. Here the old Orient went along merrily under it's own power and took second prize. A picture and account of the matter was in the Des Moines Register last Sunday. Covered wagons, stage coaches and prairie schooners, saved for historical purposes from the day when they were the aristocrat's means of transportation, were in the line of march. One prairie schooner, weakened by age, was carried on a modern truck. A Conestoga wagon, 130 years old; the sporty carriage which the rich man of former years used, the brougham, landau, spring buggy and all the other types of horse drawn vehicles were on hand. Would Feed Wheat Instead of Corn. Whlttemore Champion: One Whittemore's prominent farmers Livermore Cafe Polished Plate Glass Your broken auto door and windshield glass replaced while you wait. Joe Greenberg tfVWVVWWMWVVVWWMVWW Victim of Bandits, Gazette: Two young men masked with blue bandanas, held up the J. E. Carrel restaurant, located just north of the Gazette office, last Friday evening about ten o'clock and escaped with $47 in cash and currency, and a carton of cigarettes. They were seemingly about as particular to ob,ain the cigarettes as they were the iash. Mr. Carrel was alone in the cafe at lie time, sitting in a chair near the ront door. His wife was in the back oom. He observed the bandits ap- jroach the front of the building. One ntered while the other waited on the doorstep. A|t the point of a gun Mr. Carrel was ordered to hand over all the cash in hand. Surprised by the request, ie hesitated, which prompted a threat rom the hold-up man, who told him o "make it snappy and geitl the ough." Thereupon Mr. Carrel did as he was old. He handed over the bills and was sorting out some silver when the andit remarked to "never mind the mall change." The bandit backed toward the door nd was about to join his companion n the doerstep when the latter call- d through the door to "make him ive us a carton of Luckies." Mr. Carel complied, producing a carton of igarets. Then the pair left, hurriedly walk- ig north. So far as known they had o automobile at hand or other means f making a quick getaway. They nay have been two men who had been anging about Livermore since the revious day. The only description Mr. Carrel can furnish was that one -as tall and the other short, and both ppeared to be about 18 or 20 years age. Except for the bandanas he does not recall just how they were clothed. Presbyterian iChurch. We are offering, at the morning hour, the last sermon of the series, on the return of our Lord to earth. This subject will have to do with the restoring of Israel Into favor with God. The evening sermon theme will follow the. marks of the Divine Hand in the direction of his kingdom on earth. The Sunday School and young •people's meeting offer places of helpful services to the youth of the church. —J. T. Coleman, minister. of in talking over conditions existing in the agricultural markets today, stated that a simple plan could be put in operation that would relieve the situation greatly. He states that inasmuch as the price of wheat is low, due to the huge surplus, and that the price of wheat governs the price of other grains, that it would be feasible for farmers in non-wheat producing sections to purchase wheat for feeding in place of corn and thus create a demand that would be sure to send up the price of that grain as well as others. He would have elevators in towns like Whittemore purdhase a car load of wheat, grind it and sell it out to the fanners. He says that he would be perfedtly willing to take one hundred bushels of wheat, and that a car load could be disposed of easily. He would carry this plan to every community, and if it was put over in the right manner it would be no time at all urltil the wheat surplus was a thing of the past. There is merit in the proposal. Peed value considered in connection with the present grain prices, wheat has a higher relative value than does corn. Following the war we had "buy a bale of cotton" campaigns to relieve the cotton industry in the south. Why not a "buy a car of wheat" campaign now. If the price of grain goes up, the farmer is benefltted, and anything that will benefit the fanning industry will likewise benefit every other industry in the country. Swea City to Have Night School.

Reporter: Along about one o'clock a few nights ago some one rapped on the door at the Clarence Bierstedt home. Clarence arose from his slumbers to investigate and upon peering out of the window noticed a Bulck sedan without lights in the yard. He then went to the door and saw five rough looking men who asked admittance to get warm. Clarence didn't like the looks of them so their request was refused. They returned to the car but did not drive away. Not having any fire arms' in the house Clarence called his father and his brother on the phone and told them to come over. While awaiting the arrival of his father and brother the strangers continued to remain on the place. However, just as Mr. Bierstedt and son arrived the strangers left heading north, without turning on their lights. Who were the strangers and what was their mission is still a mystery to Clarence. It would seem though that they were there for no good purpose. First Lutheran Church.
