The Upper Des Mottles-Republican, December 3, 1930 fwenty Years Ago. Afld Now They Kick on Hoover's. "Pew'people realize the Immense sum of money (that has been spent In Algona the past season for automobiles. The Algona Auto & Machinery Company has disposed of In the neighborhood of one hundred cars. These machines, at the average price of $1200 each, would represent a total sum of $120,000. H. J. Wilson and L. J. Dickinson are In reality the whole company, as we understand It. They have as flne a garage as there Is In Iowa and this season have handled the Chalmers-Detroit, E. M. F.-30, Buick, Overland and Flanders cars. E. G. Fargo, who handles the Rambler and Reo autos In Algona, has sold this season abbut twenty machines, eight of them being the high priced Rambler cars. Supposing the eight cars sold at an average price of $3000 and the other twelve at $1,000 each, this would be a total of $36,000. Besides this a number of Fords have been sold by Frank Seller, bringing the total number of autos sold by Algona agents to somewhere around $100,000. And still people kick on Taft's administration."

All they will have to do is to write out a list of the property to be sold, together with the date, location, terms, and the name of the auctioneer ;ind clerk and we will arrange the matter for publication in the paper and for sale bills. The ordinary sale ad is a quarter of a page, and bills may be printed from the same type used in the ad in cases where the cost of advertising has to be held down. Otherwise a large sale bill may be used, which of course would be a little more expensive. The Upper DCS Moines-Rcpnbli- can has splendid correspondents in all parts of Kossuth county and covers the county thoroughly with a big list of subscribers who are interested in auction sales, and do not, hesitate to drive twenty-live miles to attend a sale in case any property they are interested in is advertised. Every single bidder brought to a sale by advertising pays big returns on the cost of the ad. Bring in Your List of Property, We Will Do the Rest Here is an outline of a sale ad that may help you. 1—It is customary to start out with some reason for the sale, such ns "As I am about to quit fanning and move to town." Give your reason here (If you care to): 2—Give the distance from such towns as you want to mention to your farm. (Do not say "Five miles northwest of Algona—say, "Four miles west and one mile north of Algona") 3—Give day and date of sale 4—Give hour when sale is to begin 5—What about lunch, if any? 6—How many horses? Describe each animal, with weight and ago, and if you have any out- standing horses or teams give particulars 7—How many cattle? Describe them, and bo sure to give particulars about bulls, dairy cows, purebred or good grade beef cattle, etc. Play up the merits of yDur stuff. The fellow ten miles away will know only what you tell him in your bill and ad. 8—How many hogs? Do as you did with the cattle. Tell everything you would want to know if you yourself were looking for hogs and saw a bill or ad of a man ten miles away who was going to close out. 9—Sheep, mules, or other stock? ... 10—Chickens, ducks, geese, etc.? ... 11—Which do you want to come first—horses, cattle.or hogs? 12—Farm machinery. Give make and condition. Make a complete list. In these automobile days a grindstone may fetch a buyer ten miles away. 13—Miscellaneous 14—See your banker, get the terms, and set them outhere. How many months? 15—How many bills do you want? (The usual number is 100) 16—How large an ad do you want? (The usual size is one-fourth page) 17—Your name 18—Auctioneer 19—Clerk Clip this advertisement and have it for the time you will be ready to prepare your ad. Upper Des Moines-Republican ALGONA, IOWA Phone 230. Call this office and we will send a man to your place to arrange your advertising. vwwvwwwvvwwv i
