BEFRIENDED YOUTH RUNS AMUCK A youngster whom they had befriended and made a home for, during his boyhood, turned into a raging demon at the farm home of Mr. and Mrs. N. S. Nemmers, last week, and caused Mrs. Nemmers to flee from the home in her husband's absence, and later to flle a complaint charging the young man with threatening to commit a public offense. The defendant was Emll Berger, who has been cared for and raised by the Nemmers, in Ramsey township for many years. Grown to manhood, Berger got into bad company, and some time back was arrested and sentenced to prison. He was later granted a parole, and found the Nemmers ready to again give him a home. Last summer his parole period ended—so did his good behavior. Last Thursday, when petty difficulties sent him Into a rage at the home while Mr. Nemmers was away, Mrs. Nemmers fled from the house and waited by the mall box until her husband returned. Then the couple filed the charge the next day. Appearing In Justice P. A. Danson's court, Thursday, Berger was stentenced to 30 days in jail, and the sentence was suspended upon condition that he immediately leave the state. He left that night for the home of a sister at Sallna, Kansas, never to return unless in violation of the law, County Attorney L. A. Wlnkel said.

City Poll Tax Repealed Algona's city council voted repeal of the city poll tax, at 1U monthly meeting, last Thursday, in the city hall. Publication of an ordinance repealing the old poll tax ordinance is carried In today's Algona Upper Des Molnea. The repeal ol the tax, a hang-over from old-time days when road work was required of all able-bodied mea between 21 and 45 year* of age, will be welcome relief from a headache which occurs every year when authorities attempt to collect the tax. Last year, only $555 wus collected, and about half of those coming under the tax did not pay it. Most of the tax has been collected by city marshals following the expiration of the time limit, of Oct. 1. when a penalty has been attached. In practice however, only those who have property against which the tax can be levied have actually paid the tax, and many escaped altogether. Many towns of 3.0UO or more have eliminated the poll tax in recent years, ai being too expensive to collect and to much of a bother, for the funds actually obtained. A cigarette license was also granted to the new Wilson cufe in the former State's cafe building.
