The Upper Des Moines-Republican, February 25, 1931 Algona May be on Star Route. A change In the time of the Milwaukee trains has in a way changed the mail service. Formerly the Milwaukee train from the east arrived In Algona about six a. m. This train received mail from the south at various points, including the Des Moines daily papers, with the change the Milwaukee Is too early to receive this mail and under these conditions It would be considerably delayed. Chief Clerk Mallory of the Chicago oClce, was in Algona last week and said it was probable that truck service will be • established between Nora Springs and Algona to deliver all mail not received by the Milwaukee train at Clear Lake and Mason City to all points as far west as Algona, leaving Nora Springs about four a. m. and arriving in Algona about seven-thirty a. m. In the afternoon, the carrier will leave Mason City about 12:30 p. m. and arrive in Algona about 3:40 p. m. with Mason City papers and perhaps other mail. This is because Train No. 3 on the Milwaukee that formerly arrived at 3:15 p. m. arrives now about noon, too early for the Mason City and other papers. Only newspapers, first class mall, special delivery, and special handling mail will be carried by the truck, which is expected to start in a few days. In the meantime the newspapers will truck their own papers to where a connection can be made or to Algona. Farm Sales Slack up This Week. Only one farm sale is listed this week.
