Arthur Was charged with using pro- anity in the complaint, and after Jus- Ice P. A. Danson had listened to the mother's story, and had been told that Arthur had threatened to kill himself, he decided to give him 30 days in the county Jail to think it over. The charge against Ewoldt was that of malicious: mischief and willful trespass. He waived a perilmlnary hearing and was bound over to the grand jury. The trouble started late Saturday night when Arthur came home. He threatened to kill himself at that time. Shortly afterward, Ewoldt arrived. He had recently been released from a C. C. C. camp. The door was locked and he demanded to be admitted. His mother refused to do so, and then Arthur said, "Let him in and I'll smash him one." Ewoldt broke through the door and entered the h6use, whereupon Mrs. Zeut- lau started for an officer, but her sons' stopped her._The next day she filed the- charges.

Baddeley worked in English" pottery plants for a number of years and brought samples of priceless pottery with him to exhibit as he talked. Rev. Baddeley concluded his talk with a Joke pertaining to the difference between an Englishman and an American, which was humorous, apt and probably truthful.

Girl's Arm Drawn into Wash Wringer Good Hope: Patricia Ann, five year old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Emil Mlttag, had the misfortune to have her hand and arm drawn into the wringer of the washing machine last Friday. Though the arm was engaged clear to the shoulder there were no bones broken, but the flesh was badly bruised and mangled. The fact that the wringer was of the soft rubber type probably saved the child's life. Patricia is under the care of a physician and the recovery of the normal use of the injured member is hoped for.

Two men and a woman in a coupe coming from the north at a high rate of speed approached the bridge and when the driver saw the crowd and the car he turned into the ditch, and the car flew about 20 feet into the water on the opposite side of the bridge from the first accident. All occupants of both machines were bruised and shaken up, and the cars were damaged, but luckily no serious outcome was reported. > ter this when they come to the intersection of highways 169 and 18 north of Algona.

Suspect Arrested With the arrest several days ago in Emmetsburg of Frank O'Deas, northern owa officers hope they have solved the ecent series of elevator raids and rob- eries which have swept this section. O'Deas is also held in connection with the death of Walter Miller, his former pal, who was found murdered on a sidewalk in Sioux City. The Nov. 9 issue of The Algona Upper Des Moines, which carried an exclusive county story on the search that was being made by all officers in north Iowa for the pair, related in detail the maraudings of the pair, and the account of their arrest here last spring. They were later turned over to Sioux City police and released. The two men were known as "bad eggs" and had served time. in Wind Is Right, County Wives State As the saying goes, 'tis an 111 wind etc., but there are more than 4,000 town and rural housewives in Kossuth county who could find little in the appearance of their homes, Monday morning of tills week, to prove that the old adage is correct. Which is another way of saying that it was some dust storm. A strong wind, Sunday, from the west, finally developed into the worst dust storm in years. Motorists drove with their lights on; persons were forced indoors; window sills were covered with dust; curtains, draperies, furniture—everything needed cleaning. The dust was being blamed on South Dakota earlv this week . The high winds caused a small amount of telegraph and telephone line trouble. Five electric light poles were broken off in the Irvington section, but otherwise no serious damage was reported, other than the necessity for immediate action by tbe ever alert and ever clean housewives of Kossuth, who started in promptly Monday morning to revive the neat and spotless appearance of their home. editor of The Prairie Farmer, weekly magazine, and her observations are recorded in her by-line column, Tween You and Me. Miss Schenck says: "Naturally it was a deep thrill to me to talk to Mrs. Roosevelt not only because she is the president's wife, but because she; is Eleanor Roosevelt, a warm-hearted, interesting individual. ( "Seated with her on a blue, squashy davenport in her sitting room, we talked over such plain, homely matters as recipes, what she stressed in her children's diets, how she plans menus for all the White House entertaining, and in fact the food interests of her whole life. *•* "In place of the elegant, social goddesses we are accustomed to have in our country's First Home, we can now _...„...., „ see a living, vital personality flitting renorted in and. out, busy with scores of real' matters, "By living up to her promise to herself last March to 'keep on being myself even though I am going into the White House, 1 she has endeared herself to us all. we here in the Mid-West like folks who are genuine—and so, after talking with Eleanor Roosevelt, we go away saying: "I'm all for her!" $56 in currency.

Kohlhaas and Howard Hoenk of Algona, John Hauptman of Wesley and Albert Deltering and Joe Menke of Bancroft attended a district meeting of the National Automobile Dealers Association at Fort Dodge Monday even- Ing. At the meeting it was determined Hans Jensen of Seneca, Kossuth Pioneer, Died Hans Jensen, prominent Seneca resident, father of J. H. Jensen, former Kossuth county representative, and P. H. Jensen of Fort Dodge, passed away last week. Funeral services were held Tuesday afternoon from the Seneca Lutheran church and Interment was in the church cemetery. Hans Jensen was born in Wilberg, Norway, January 11, 1848 and he was 85 years old. He came to America in 1882 and settled in Kossuth county, where he resided until his death. On November 23, 1884, he was married to Christina Jorgensen. To this union seven children were born. One daughter, Inga, preceded him in death. Besides his wife the following children are left to mourn his death: Julius. Minnie, peter, Klara, Helen and Sylvia; ten grandchildren, one brother and four sisters. Sincere sympathy is ex- ended to the bereaved relatives. Those attending the funeral from a distance were: Mrs. Chris Shanger, of Waterloo; Mr. and Mrs. Joe Hanson of Mason city; Mrs. Julia Hansen and daughter, Minnie; Mr. and Mrs. Helmer Hansen of Bode; Mr. and Mrs. Erdahl and family and Mrs. Jorgensen of Blue Earth, Minnesota; Mr. and Mrs. Ed Kossuth county during the past week, Buffalo center, however, was reported to have pickets patrolling the highways leading into that communlty^Utst week and Emmetsburg was also having similar trouble. ^ One report stated that representatives of the holiday strike movement were calling on all elevators, creameries and produce stations in Palo Alto i«nd Emmet counties to an effort to make them close to the marketing of farm products. At Buffalo Center a picket named Harley Clark attacked-a man named Lloyd Robinson, after the latter failed to heed a rope the pickets had strung across the highway. Sentiment in Kossuth county seemed to be of the saner type which reasoned that keeping of the farm products off the market would not help to work out the solution of the problem, and would simply add to the raw foodstuff already overproduced and stored on many farms. Many farmers stated that the administration seemed to have a definite plan and to know what it was doing, and that unless that had been proved a failure they intended to cooperate. that the price regulations on used cars ' Jensen of swea City; Mrs. Ed Helea- would go into effect in about ten days : son an<J son.
