OTTO GIVEN HALF YEAR SENTENCE JPIca'ds Guilty to Vagrancy . Before Judge Clark in District Court. Jack Otto was given six months m 3Wl by Judge Joseph J. Clark in the district court Thursday evening when he pleaded gruilty to a vagrancy charge. The. judge's entry was that the sentence was to be suspended Marcn 1 and the defendant placed in the guardianship of R. R. Oulman of the police department. "BIG BILL" PUTS UP GOOD BATTLE (Contlnoea from Page 1) charges of "traitor" and showers of press clippings on his head. Then in 1927 he not only refused to invite King George to Chicago but he promised to "bust him in the snoot" if he did come. Of course, the British monarch had no intention of coming. It was merely Thompson's dramatic way of emphasizing his cam- would mitigate against building up the state industrially. . Hush, Montgomery, chairman of the ways and means committee, said an appreciable decrease in revenues was in sight by the revision o f . the rates on taxable personal incomes and he advised serious thot in reducing the corporate income levy. His position was indorsed by 'Representative Reimera of Lyon county, who said he did not think a 3 per cent tax would hurt any industry and declared that the realty of the greater part of the industries was assessed at "a niggardly low value." After the defeat of the attempt to reduce the corporation tax, Representative E. G. Allen, Pocahontas, moved a reconsideration, which was under discussion when the house recessed until 1:30.

From the first, Thompson frankly has made his appeal to "the masses." He found illustration a valuable adjunct to his bombastic style of address.

He speaks easily, in an informal, almost conversational manner, but his voice is loud and throaty.

Tuesday he called by telephone three times at the Deam house, asking Mr. Deam to hire him again. This was agreed and Smith returned to work. Neighbors Find Victim. Shortly after the shooting occurred Mr. and Mrs. George Van Nest, neighbors of Mr. and Mrs Deam, drove along the road. They saw Mra. Deam on her hands and knees. 'I got out of the car," 'declared Mrs. Van Nest, "and asked who she was. Her face was bloody and I was unable to recognize her. She mumbled a few words and then ; and L. E. Allen took her to the hospital. Mr. Van Nest started to look for Mr. Deam." Dr. W. R. Arthur, Franklin county coroner, who said no inquest would be held, arrived at the Deam house in company with Deputy Sheriff Lemke soon after the tragedy. A large crowd collected around the house after the shooting. Mrs. Deam left her home immac- riately neat. Neighbors volunteered :Q do the chores while her husband spent most of his time at the hospital. * . -- -- , . -- : ^ ' . .

The number of possibilities, .who have been suggested in connection with the democratic nomination, runs to at least two dozen already, but not more than four or five of them can be named without raising the query, "Is he big enough to fill the bill creditably?" Fault can be found with Jim Reed, but no one is likely to ask, "Is h e b i g enough?" He is James A. Reed """jufcii . -nv JM big enough to have fought the white house to a finish, and to have won when it tried to beat him for the senate. t' . · * * s THERE ARE counts in his favor. 1 His geography is right--sufficiently western to appeal to the com and wheat belts; sufficiently southern to furnish a contact with the cotton area; not too remote to be out of the world to eastern communities. He is a wet, at a. time when his party appears to need a wet candidate, and yet with a certain understanding of Dixie's dryness. Actual complaints, from radical sources, of the ultra-Bourbocism of his views, should be reassuring to conservatives. For all that, -as good a progressive as the late Senator LaFollette pronounced him "so right when he IS right that his errors, as "old Bob" saw them, ought not to count too heavilv against him." He is on what seems to be the popular side of internationalism.

(/P-Six persons were seriously ill today while about 140 others were recovering from food poisoning suffered when they ate meat sandwiches at an auction aale near here yesterday. Chemists who analyzed the food served a crowd of 500 on the farm of Ed Zieharth said the poisoning may have come from the pork and beef hash sandwiches which bad remained in a stone crock overnight before being served or else from coffee prepared in a copper boiler. Those most seriously ill are Albert Ellison, 60, of Sioux Falls- A. H. Willard, 70, farmer near Flandreau, and Alfred Weflell 30 of Coleman, S. Dak., Frank Hurley of Aurora; Tomy Hurney and T. Hurney of Elkton. Many of those afflicted became ill after leaving the farm, and a few hours after the lunch, called at physicians' offices in all surrounding towns on their way home. Nearly 30 persons were, in Brooklngs hospitals while between 50 and 60 were treated during the day. Others were given medical attention in Aurora Bushnell, Lake Benton, Flandreau and Elkton.

O F course you've noticed occasionally that the water Avasn't hot -enough for shaving, nor warm enough for a bath--but with a furnace coil and an auxiliary 'heater a little firing should; in your opinion, heat up enough for cleaning, washing and the dishes. . That seems logical, but really you don't know the half of it. Furnace coils depend on heat from the fuel bed--and unless there's a roaring fire (which overheats the house on a mild day) there's seldom enough hot water when there's cleaning or washing to be done. It's mighty 'unpleasant to run short of hot water in the midst of a busy washday. Starting a fire in the auxiliary heater means a long wait and a great waste of heat to bring a fresh supply. With a Self-Action Gas Water Heater, there's instant hot water --at the tap's turn. The tank is heavily insulated" to eliminate heat waste, and the self-operating thermostat insures a steady supply without the least attention. Light the tiny flame just once and forget it!
