Truth is the greatest virtue and happiness the biggest blessing-. It. is great to be hnppy and contented. Jim and Bob are with us npraln and they have the old home full of sunshine Hint even a violet ray could not squeeze in. Mother is busy looking after them and one thing is certain while Jim and Bob are here she will not have to go on a <5let In order to reduce. Children of today know more at nine or ten years old than I did when I was twenty-one. In my time children were seen not heard, now davs they occupy the middle of the sta^e and are heard nil over the neighborhood. That the child is father to the man Is true from more than one standpoint. But oh, how, we love the little rascals and what; a real kick a fellow gets in sharing their childish joys and sorrows. I believe I am twenty years younger since Jim and Bob came. In fact I forget nil about being old and I notice mother is more pleasant and easier to get along with. The other nlte I got clear up the stairs to one of the dances before it dawned on me that I was an old man and had no business there. I suppose mine Is a selfish nature. My own immediate family is my world. I would never have to step outside it for enjoyment. Home sweet home, no shapely dame, Can share my couch with me; No amorous jade of tarnished fame, Nor wench of high degree, Jut I would choose and chose again, Jim with Ills curly head, Who cuddled close beside me when He used to wet the bed. If I could have the two Jims, Mary fane, Bob, Gene and Madge, and Harold and Ruby close around me and all doing well where I could see them ev- iry day I would be the happiest old man in the world. I would not even care if Patterson put on a double income tax. I would work eighteen hours a day to pay it and keep the ball roll- ng. Speaking of taxes, It seems to me that $1.00 a day for running a little store in Algona is taxes a great plen- ,y. Of course the boys down there mav need more money. They say it is very expensive living in Des Moines. They never think of ways to econmize. They could leave their wives at home and board with some other fellow's wife during the session. The winter I was at Des Moines I know there was more laws made more money spent and more horsetrading in the Savory hotel than on Capitol Hill. Bonnstetter will have a heck of a time trying to get that bunch to economize. It just can't be done. My old friend Tom Way, was manager and elected that crowd and take it from me, Tom was always a good spender. So this year more than ever they can with good grace and propriety, sing the good old song, "Hailr Hail ths gang is all here." Ed. Smith, the real economist is tending to his own business down at Winterset. I see they are trying to investigate things. No hurry about that boys. After you get about three hundred lame ducks running around collecting state income taxes, it will take a Wickersham commission to tell where you are at and then nobody will ever know.—Jimmie Neville.

Special: Another terrifying automobile accident was added to the long list of similar accidents when Mary Joyce, the little six year old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ed Rich was struck by a car in front of their home on number eighteen west of town on last Wednesday afternoon. The victim's uncle had stopped across the road from her home and the litle one had left a group of other children to go to him. She waited for a car to pass coming from one direction and rushed from behind it immediately in front of another car from the opposite direction, which she apparently had not seen. She was caught and dragged a considerable distance by this car which was going at a high rate of speed. The drvier, a traveling man, stopped as soon as he could and picking up the child rushed to an Algona hospital where she now is and will have to remain for a number of weeks. She was found to be suffering from a compound fracture of the leg above the knee, from severe nervous shock inducing unconsciousness for several hours, and from possible other serious injuries. While the accident may be counted as one of the inevitable accompaniments of modern rapid transportation one comes near to being criminally responsible in a case of this kind who does not slow down and make his presence clearly known by the blowing of his horn when he sees a group of children In proximity to the highway upon which he is traveling, Wesley Evangelistic Meetings a Success. ^- (By Rev. W. H. Lease). The evangelistic meeting in the Wes- ey Methodist church closed Sunday night. The pastor, Rev. C. H. Moore was assisted by District Superintendent, Rev. W. H. Lease, of Algona Choirs from Sexton and Livermore anc an orchestra from the Britt church under the direction of Miss lone Lease gave splendid assistance. An excellent choir in the Wesley church was organized and a junior choir developed that has promise for better music for the church. Interest increased from the first and the last week filled the auditorium. A new sense of value of the church and,,its message, was gained by the church,membership. Many who previously, \f[ere slightly interested regis- terjed their decision to live the Cnris- tjan life,,' Many children caught an inspiration, to make their lives count for good. Every one had enthusiastic words of praise for the meetings at its close. Sunday was a great day with services morning, afternoon and night. A large number brought dinners and ate picnic style in the church parlors at noon. At the afternoon hour the sacraments of baptism and the holy communion were administered, and opportunity given to unite with the church. In the evening followed the League Forum, a great inspirational service designed for the young folks was held. Thus ended a perfect day and closed a great revival. Thermometer Read 57 Degrees Above Zero. The Groundhog saw his shadow on Monday and now we will have six weeks more of winter. The high temperature of the week was reached last Friday with the mercury registering 67 degrees above.

Corn No. 4 yeltow46c, No3 yellow $ .48 Oats .24 Barley 30 Hogs .-. 7.00 Eggs 13-.15 Hens ....13-.15 Springs 17 Northwestern Has 2c Fare to Des Moines. The Chicago & Northwestern railroad has announced that two cent fares, a forty-five cent reduction over the regular 3.6 cent rate, will go into effect on ; seven sections of the roac February 1, for a three month period according to C. A. Cairns, passenger traffic manager of the road. By setting April 30 as the expiration date for this test period and by choosing districts in almost every state served by the Northwestern road the company feels that it will be able to reach a fair decision on the advisability of low rate fares at the end of the three months period. If the fares prove to be a success on the lines chosen the experiments will undoubtedly be extended to other parts of the system. , The sections over which the fares will be effective are: Madison to Platteville and Lancaster, Wisconsin Green Bay to Laona, Wisconsin; Sterling to Peoria, Illinois; Rochester to Tracy, Minnesota; Watertown to Gettysburg, South Dakota; Des Moines to Algona, Iowa; and Norfolk to Niobra, Nebraska, and all the intermediate points. The fare to Des Moines from Algona before the change in rate was $4.32 and the change will make it $2.40, a difference of nearly two dollars. The Moines some time after midnight and leaves about three o'clock in the morning. This is one reason probably that the patronage on the line Is light, light. Don't Invest on "Tips" or "Hearsay" People often exercise less enre in investing large sums of money than in making small purchases. The very man who will sliop nround nnd make Investigations before spending twenty-five or fifty dollars for an article will sometimes invest ten times that much on the "tip" of some acquaintance, or because a salesman presents a glowing picture of profits. Don't invest your money without careful investigation. Don't put too much reliance in strangers. The Iowa State Bank will be glad to consult with you about your investments, and get accurate information concerning securities that are offered you. There will be no obligation, and you will not be discouraged from buying any security we know to be safe. Iowa State Bank Algona, Iowa. Fenton Tigers Lost to Swea City 41 to 15. Fenton, February 3. Special: The Fenton Tigers lost a fast but poorly played basket ball game to Swea City last Friday night by the score of 41 to 15. The Tigers were off form in all departments of the game.

Buildings All Electric Lighted and Have Fresh Water Systems. One of the show places of Kossuth county is Hamilton's Leghorn Farm & Hatchery, located about a mile and a half southwest of Bancroft. Harold Hamilton is a former Algona boy, a son of Mr. and Mrs. John Hamilton, formerly of this city, but now of California. He is ably assisted in his work by Mrs. Hamilton, a daughter of the late John Krapp, one of the prominent farmers of Kossuth county for many years and the poultry farm is located just north of the old homestead. Mr. and Mrs. Hamilton have erected complete set of new and modem buildings for raising poultry. They have at present 2,000 pure bred chickens and cockerels, many of which have been sold to other breeders. The first, building they erected is of hollow block, plastcrd, with a south front. Their home is in the center, although they plan to erect a modern home in the near future. At each end are long rooms, warm, well lighted and sanitary to the last word for chickens. The building containing the large incubators with a capacity of 22,000 eggs, located in the basement has two other floors. On the first floor the younger chickens are housed and on the next floor the older hens are kept. One day one bunch is allowed to roam about the chicken yard and the next day the other lot takes their outing. This is done to prevent them mixing. In the brooder house, a large number of cockerels are kept for the trade and are cared for. In the incubator room a number of eggs are now beUig incubated and the first chicks will be taken off February 16. Every pen is supplied with modern watering tanks and feed troughs. After the chicks are hatched they are kept for a long time in brooders and then later are distributed in various brooder houses, located at places in the pasture, where they have plenty of range and are protected. ''" A new granary has electric feed mills where feed for the chicks is prepared. Elevators, run by electricity, carry the feed to bins, where it is kept free from dirt and vermin. A fine new cattle and horse barn is also worthy of notice. At one end the cattle are kept, and modern steel stanchions with cement feed troughs that prevent any waste of feed have geen built. A litter carrier swings about the yard and the litter can easily be dumped into a wagon or anywhere in the barn yard. Mr. and Mrs.' Hamilton, besides raising chickens successfully, are milking from twelve to fifteen cows. A new mill is being installed and they ex, peel to mill feed known as chick starter out of home grown grains with other ingredients that make it a balanced ration. Other mills grind their own feed for the cattle and other stock. At night when the lights at this fine farm are turned on, from a distance one imagines it a small town. Mr. and Mrs. Hamilton and the children are all devoted to their work and their fine equipment and buildings are evidence of their success which is a credit to the entire community.

Algona Lost to LuVerne fciy One Point; Algona high school lost a close basket ball game to LuVerne last night at LuVerne by the score of 18 to 17. Lu- Verne held this one point lead with four minutes to go and went into a stall which tho Algona boys were unable to break up. The first half was slow and somewhat rough. At, one time LuVerne held a 14 to 4 lead, but this was overcome by Algona. Moore at. center starred for Algona and the LuVerne center was their scoring ace with eleven out of the eighteen points. Coach Bonham is still looking for another forward to help Hargreaves who is at present the big point man for the locals and when he is cold Algona suffers a relapse in points. Bonham is experimenting with various new men on the squads but has not found one as yet who can keep up. Moore has got the tip-off in nearly every game but the team cannot score enough points. Tuesday the team plays Humboldt there and Friday, the thirteenth, Webster City comes here for a conference game.
