Pennsylvania's Governor George H. Earle, who two months ago In the . U. S. plumped loudly for a Roosevelt third term, had a member of his staff give the Warsaw press a statement describing himself as "the probable nominee of the Democratic Party for the Presidency of the United States."

CHAINED IN BED- DEBT COLLECTION CLARKSDALE, Miss.: A colored sharecropper named James Wiggins and his common-law wife, Ethe! Davis, owed $175 to their white boss, 1 Joseph Shelley Decker, who was afraid they might decamp without paying. What this situation led to last week was described by Clarksdales' Sheriff M. H. Dogan, summoned to the 200-acre Decker farm by Sharecropper Wiggins. Said Sheriff Dogan: "1 went to the Decker place and In a sharecropper cabin I found the woman chained to a bed with a trace chain locked around her neck. She had been there several days. She had been fed well and other than being chained apparently had not been harmed. I ordered the woman unchained and took her and Wiggins off the farm." Pending arraingment on a charge of peonage. Farmer Decker was last week released on a $1,500 bond. In a Clarksdale jail stayed Sharecroppers Davis and Wiggins voluntarily as material witnesses. ITS CATCHING!

The dog, highly prized by Its owners, who were returning east from Lake Okobojl, was occupying a drawing room with Ifei owners. While they were In thp dining car, the porter told them the draw-in* room door Was ajar—and that Zammy, the Scotty, was gone*. A search of the train failed to find him, and the Eyres got off at Muson City, heartbroken. Mr. Eyres hired a car and drove back to Alitona, and then hired a motor-driven section car and covered every mile between Algona and Mason City looking for the animal. But Monday morning the dng turned up. Charles Murphy, lo- cal taxi man, found the animal near the Deep Rock oil station. It then developed that Homer Anderson found the dog near his car at the elevator, Saturday night, and took him home. Sunday, Mrs. Anderson let the dog out, and he again resumed Ills rambles. And now the Eyres, the Scotty—and w might add the Milwaukee railroad—are all very happy. The. dog was sent to New York, flrtit-class express. SCHROEDER LOSES TO COLLINS IN CLOSE RACE flcTdo'7 can be materially deceased; (2) It "Is the ultimate expression of a personality disorder that has progressed through known stages of a neurosis, often with physical complications recognized as hysteria"; (3) It "Is unresponsive to medical treament which, in addition to being Ineffective, comes too late"; (4) "This disorder can be precipitated and aggravated by physical strain and fatigue, psychologic disturbance and conflict, and social and environment difficulties." Considered as a disease, suicide cannot be cured, but it can be prevented. Some of Dr. Moore's reconv mended preventatlves: (1) Reading "psychologically inspirational articles" In newspapers •uch a* Beatrice Fairfax's "Advice to the Lovelorn", fills "a need which we as physicians In public Institutions are slow to recognize, namely, the desire of anxious persons to come in contact with the thoughts of others on daily problems"; (2) Conversing for an hour with a friend, physician or priest— a simple, commonplace preventative; (8) Eating a good meal, best preventative of all, because "very few person* attempt suicide on a full stomach."

But th*r torn* very fair, I Conservative Estimate of Head Already Dead From information gathered from veterinarians in various sections of Kossuth county, and from correspondent*' news in various sections, it appeared here this week that the sleeping sickness epidemic in horses which has swept this section of the nation had cost Kossuth county in the neighborhood of $25.000. In the Algona vicinity alone, Drs. Fox and Wlnkel, local veterinarian*, report that since the epidemic began, about 350 horses have been stricken with the sickness, and that in and 20 per cent have died. Dr. H. R. Gibson gives about the same estimate. Slcknen* Attacks Brain The disease is caused by a virus that attacks the horses' brains, but how the original germ is transmitted has not been discovered. Another drawback, veterinarian* report, is the fact that no vaccine to immunize horses has been forthcoming, and that no serum is obtainable that ia a sure cure. Hyi|ipUni|« Vary The symptoms, Dr. Julius Winkel of Algona stated, are varied. Some horses simply go wild, others go off their feed, some horses knees buckle under them, and some develop a mania for going either to the left or right, or simply backing up. The extent of the infection in the brain determine* whether or not the case will be fatal, veterinarians aay, Some become so paralyzed In the firat few hour* that they are beyond recovery. Rendering works in all sections, including the Algona Rendering' Works, report a rush of calls to remove dead horses, which has continued for the past two weeks. At least 250 horses have died in Kossuth county, and with a conservative estimate of a $100 valuation, at least $25.000 loss has resulted and probably the figure ia considerable higher than that. LUVEBNK FARMERS HARD HIT BV DISEASE Sleeping sickness in horses Is aa prevalent in this neighborhood us in other localities, and farmers are considering themselves lucky if they do not have one or more horses «ick. Dr. T. L. Williams reports from one to five horses afflicted ut every place he ha* called. The supply of regular sling* to keep the horses up ia exhausted and improvised slings of rope are being used in many case*. WAS 59 YEARS OLD; CO. MUT.

They narrowly escaped Injury, when they run into loose gravel on the way home. The car swerved to the edge of the road and struck a cement culvert. The force of the Impact threw the car across the Weather and Fine Program Combine to Draw Big Throngs; Auto Race Day on Friday Should Be a Record-Breaker The 1937 Kossuth county fair, with one of the finest entertainment and educational programs In its history, seems destined to set new attendance records this year on a comparative basis with the past eight or ten years, at least. Tuesday's crowd, despite overcast skies, was estimated at somewhere in the neighborhood of fi.OOO, and although children were free that day, the grandstand was three- quarters filled for the afternoon program, and a good crowd was on hand for the opening nights performance of the Gertrude Avery Revue. Jam Grounds Wednesday Wednesday, by noon, one of the largest morning crowds in many years had passed through the gates. It seemed safe to say that possibly 8.000 people would enter the grounds during the day' and evening. No accurate check could be made until some time this morning. For once, fortunately, it seems that a complete program can be run off without rain interfering. Fair officials are crossing their fingers for the next two days. • Harnraft Rncon Please Harness races Wednesday afternoon were very plcaslnff, with an entry list for the two days (Wednesday and Thursday) that necessitated extra heats, giving grandstand fans more for their money. The Suicide Club program, Tuesday afternoon, wns one of the fln- cst of its kind ever witnessed at any fair, county or state. The boys started their program on th» dot, and kept things humming all the way through. The spectacular driving of the special events kept the crowd in an uproar, and the motorcycle riders risked life and limb with ease and unconcern to thrill the crowds. Auto RaccB Friday Friday, the flnal day of the fair, is hoped to be the biggest day of all. The definite statement that Gus Schroeder, Cedar Rapids speed king, would be here for the afternoon, and compete in some of the races, should pack the grandstand solid* . t- Schroeder will 'make a flying trip 1 ' down here from the Minnesota state fair to compete, local fair officials stated. A full program of two hours of racing, plus the usual vaudeville acts, will be offered. Revue, a Honey " The Gertrude Avery Revue la drawing universal praise. It is tho largest revue on the road outside of state fair productions, and larger and better than anything that has played any county fair In this Htate. The settings, scenery, dancing and special music, to say nothing of . . , i . , the vaudeville number* and spec- road and into the ditch on the op- laities, are unquestionably top* on poslte side. any pro4;ram . The car was very badly damaged, but the young people escaped serious injury. The Reasons Why! Man About Town still on his vacation, hut back next week for sure. Hospital news omitted, due to the county fair. Oruin market unavailable, due to county fair closing. Local news himi to get; every- jody iit the fair. Sorry—we'll do better next week.

The two teams have wanted to play here under the lights, and with the natural rivalry between the Lions and Indians, u good contest is assured.
