We wonder how many people are aware of the fact that there is now in existence In this county the Kossuth County Motor club, which is run on the same plan as clubs in large cities? The club was organized about the first of this year and now has approximately 300 members. These memberships are issued through the auto insurance department of the LaBarre- Fnlkenhainer agency to each holder of a liability and property damage policy issued through them. This agency is a county organization and the insurance is carried by the Druggists Mutual Insurance Company of Algona. This company was organized here in the county a number, of years ago and has a high rating. The membership in the club costs nothing and gives very many benefits to the motorists. Some of the benefits are a personal auto accident insurance policy paying $1000 if the holder is killed in an auto accident and $10.00 a week for. thirty weeks for total disability. If the car breaks down anywhere outside of the holder's premises the company pays the towing cost not exceeding ten dollars. This applies anywhere in the United States and Canada. They also pay for the phone call and also for the phone call notifying them of the accident. It provides up-to-date road map service to all members and will give legal information on problems pertaining to the ownership and use of the car. The company guarantees the appearance of the policyholder in traffic violation cases where a bond not in excess of fifty dollars is demanded. All policies (By Rev. Allen Wood). it would be difficult to overstate the shock which the Good Hope community suffered on hearing of the death on last Friday of Margaret Armita Knoll, daughter and only child of Mr. and Mrs. James J. Knoll. On Wednesday evening, April 8, she Was hurried to the hospital for an emergency appendicitis operation. Owing to complications she was critically 111 from the first but favorable reactions from time to time aroused hope for her ultimate recovery. But this was not to be and Just at dawn on the morning of Friday, April 17, the portals swung ajar to permit her return to that mysterious land from whence she came. Born on February 19, 1926, she had during her little more than five years of earthly life endeared herself to a host of acquaintances. Of spontaneous friendliness and sparkling mem- tality she brought a bit of sunshine to all with whom she came in contact. Even in her last illness she established herself in the affections of doctors and nurses by the willing and understanding way in which she cooperated with them in their endeavors for her healing. Funeral services were conducted by her pastor, Rev. Allen Wood at Good Hope church on Sunday, April 19 at two-thirty o'clock. The Misses Dorothy and Viola Smith sang Jesus Lover of My Soul, Jesus Loves Me and Precious Jewels, the two latter favorite songs of Margaret's. Another of her favorites was (characteristically) In My Heart There Rings a Melody. Four young ladies, the Misses Evelyn Crulkshank, Haael Mitchell, Martina Madson, and Mabel Gustafson, acted as pall bearers. Interment was made In the cemetery at Burt. In addition to the parents the deceased is survived by the grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Wm. F. Knoll of Algona and the Rev. and Mrs. C. B. J Mitchell of Armstrong; also by a large number of other relatives. Among those who attended the service in expression of their sympathy were many from other towns including Armstrong, Buffalo Center, Crystal Lake, Titonka and Schaller. Mr. and Mrs. J. M. Schroeppel of the latter place were at the Knol 1 home for several days. Mrs. Schroeppel, after whom the deceased was named, is an Intimate and special friend of the family. The following poem by Edith Gilling Cherry was used to conclude the service at the church. The Children Up in Heaven. "Oh, what do think the angels say?" Said the children up in heaven; "There's a dear little girl coming home today, She's almost ready to fly away From the earth we used to live in. Let's go and open the gates of pearl, Open them wide for a new little girl," Said the children up in heaven. "God welcomes her here where His little ones met," Said the children up in heaven. "She shall play with us in the golden street; She has grown too fair, she has grown too sweet For the earth we used to live in; She needed the sunshine, this dear little girl, That gilds this side of the gates of pearl," Said the children up In heaven.

We met a high powered newspaper subscription solicitor at a farm home who was so worked up and mad that he failed to bid the farmer good-bye when he left the premises. He was soliciting for a county newspaper and was angry because the fanner refused to stop another paper and subscribe for his paper. People generally and farmers especially have a mind of their own and subscribe for the papers they desire regardless of the high powered salesmen traveling over the county.
