CHARLES CITY VIGILANTES ARE ORGANIZED HERE. Charles City, Nov. the efforts of the Charles City Clearing Hpuse association, a county vigilante organization is being perfected for the. purpose of protecting the Floyd county banks and banks in adjoining counties against bank robberies and hold-ups. Some 50 vigilantes have been deputized through the office of Sheriff P.

A. Saddler, who is rendering every assistance possible. Elmer Waller, who has been appointed as chief of the Charles City Vigilante committee, assisted the local Clearing House association com- greatly in helping organize the various towns in the county. Each vigilante is equipped with a shot-gun and suitable -ammunition and instructions, so as to be ready in case of any emergency. Mr.

Quinlin, of Des Moines, who is state chief or leader of the state organization, has also done 'much in perfecting the organization. He expects to call a county meeting of all vigilantes in the near future to give further instruction as to proper proceedings in case of a call to action. APOLLO CLUB HOLDS INTERESTING MEETING.

This is the most terrifying action ever shown in a picture. For racetrack thrills, nothing can compare with the great Chariot Race scene. In the Roman mode a chariot course was built with half-mile laps, and this was surrounded by a Circus Maximums with a seating capacity of 100,000 spectators, the whole guarded by great gladiatorial figures in the heroic style of sculpture and ornamented with Roman eagles, warriors and amazons by the artists Carmelo Barbara and Carlos Romenelli. Twelve quadrigas or four-horse chariots enter the race, which is seven times around the course.

The voting public has lost confidence in those.individuals who come before them for election. People realize that there are but two incentives for a man to enter politics. One is the possibility of financial gain. The other is the desire to be of service to the nation and the world. However, those interested in the last phase of politics are generally smart enough and well-inform-ed enough in the theory of government as to realize the futility of making much headway in system as chaotic as our own.

Dak. Mr.

Langseth was noted for years for the length of his whiskers, which measured 16 feet. However, three years ago he came to national attention, tthen, at the reunion of 49'ers in California, Mr. Langseth won the distinction of having the world's longest whiskers, winning over his nearest rival by four feet. He was given free transportation to the west coast to compare his whiskers with a man who claimed to be the winner in the contest. However, Mr.

Langssth's whiskers were found to be consi lerable longer. He received a cash prize of $300 and a return ticket to his home in North Dakota. The body was brought to Kensett and the funeral held at Elk Creek church. LOSZS FINGER THROUGH JURY. IN- Xew Hartford.

Operations were carried on for two years, and have been described from time to time in the news dispatches from Italy. Returning about a year ago, Fred Niblo, the director-in-chief, and the company completed their work at Culver City, a few miles out of Los Angeles.

Among the chief favorites of the Italian people during the Roman filming were Ramon Novarro, the handsome young picture star of Latin type, who plays the role of Ben-Hur, and Carmel Myers who enacts 'he Egyptian siren Iras. Mr. Novarro took a keen interest in historic Rome during his stay there, visiting frequently the treasures of the Vatican, St. Peter's, the Castle of St. Angelo, and endearing himself to Italian newspaper men and to Italian artists alike by his courtesy and amiability.

Miss Myers was the heroine of more than one public occasion, being at the forefront of receptions given to the Italian Deputies and to the diplomatic representatives, and also was furnished with a guard of honor of Roman soldiery. Her chic dress, dashing style and bold sparkling beauty were certainly captivating. The scene of operations was a tract of 6.000 acres back of the Esquiline, about 8 miles out of Rome, This was known as the Quadrate, and on it were built the huge constructions used in the filming.
