Sunday night, resulted in tota) destruction, ,to," the -barn on th4 arm occupied 'by the J, 'M. Elmorc amily, five miles, west 'and three miles north of Algona. . Loss was placed at about $2,000*., All stock except one calf was;safe- y rert>oyed, but about three tons )f hay and some farm accessories were tyst. A'bout 15 head of cattlu and horses were saved.

'; : ' f B ' Rob County Treasurer Office Of $140; Vault Saves Mer| About JI40 Was stolen from off Ice. of the Kossuth county treasurer, sometime Saturday night or Sunday morning, when thieves broke Intfl the court house and knocked the dial off the outer vault. ••-..'• Of the stolen money, about $15 was petty cash, and about $125 was motor vehicle license funds. •' • ' • The treasurer's .considerably supply of cash, placed in the • ( • inner vault and guarded by a lime lock, was not touched. •• ' 'While the robbery showed many signs of amateur talent," U showed no lack of nerve. Muddy footprints were all over the'first floor of the courthouse, doors wire jimmied open, windows left open, and a half-smoked cigar was'found rcpos* ing on a pile of papers, through which it had partially burned a hole. Only the fact that the cigar went out prevented a Possible serious fire. Lloyd Ilaubach, court house janitor, discovered the robbery about 0:50 a. m. Sunday, when he went into the building to stoke up the furnace. The door Into the treasurer's .office ' was wide open. Jle called Sheriff Art Cogley, and in turn. state and FBI men were summoned to the scene. :' Fingerprints were much in evidence, but it was not known </Monday how many of them were strange and *how many belonged to employees of the treasurer's office. Entrance into •' the court house was gained by prying open a window on the north side of the auditor's office, an easy job, as only a small . catch holds the windows. • From the* auditor's office the thief jimmied open the treas- . urer'S door and evidently took bis time prowling around. He ' iktMidked the dial off the outer vault door, pushed out a pin. . and opened the vault door. The inner vault, howevcr'stopped him cold. A, tear gas bomb, arranged pn the inside of the vault, went. off, and 'this probably caused .the thief to open the 'windows,-.. which were still open when-the janitor found them. The. treasurer's office Was closed, Monday, while an iiv ventory was being taken and a check made, of all possible elites that might be found In the office. • sepi ELECTION HERE MARCH 11 ; Election ot directors,' and a iscjipql District trcasur- "dr, is slated, for, Monday,,Mar. 11. ; Terms of, Ei J.'
