Girl Is Heroine Fifteen year old Kate Shelly, who lived near the creek, was aroused from her sleep by the roaring torrent of water rushing by the cabin in river proportions. She heard n wild cry and n fearful crash, and realized at omce'that a freight train had gone through the bridge. Lighting a lantern she made for the bridge. The engineer of the freight was a survivor. Both realized that the night express from the west would soon be due, and that it, with its load of passengers awaited a similar Jate. It was a mile through dense forest to the river with a long high railroad bridge to cross before Kate Shelly could reach the Moingona telegraph Office. Train la Stopped Hurrying on, she reached the bridge. The high wind made ii necessary for her to crawl on hand" and knees over the bridge. Lacerated and exhausted she arrived »' the telegraph office, and the oncoming train was stopped, thus averting a greater horror than has eve: overtaken an Iowa railroad. This all occurred on the night of Kiwanians Honor Boy Winner in Brain Derby Richard Brink, LuVerne schoolboy, the uncrowned winner of the state Brain Derby, was honored at a luncheon of the Klwanis olub on Wednesday.

Man Jailed for Causing Disturbance Wesley: Sheriff Casey Loss of Algona was called over Sunday to take care of a strange acting man who was causing a disturbance in various parts of town. He had been warned to get out of town twice by Mayor Dennis but persisted in remaining here until he was caught after a chase during which he jumped upon the running board of a passing car. He was turned over to the sheriff and was taken to Algona. Algona's city council met Thursday night in regular meeting to discuss city business. The city hand shell question was considered and licenses for beer and cigarette retailers approved. Nothing definite was decided in the case of the band shell proposed to be built near the site of the swimming pool. The council some time previously allocated $900 for the construction of the shell but the project was never carried further. Council to Survey Han Council members intend to investigate the park site and to try to estimate what such a project would cost, including help from the "WPA Renewing of permits to sell beer and cigarettes was approved by the council wtih the proviso that places now having cigarette vending mo- chines dispose of them before new licenses are granted.

Major Saul said that if he did not have growing children he might still like to live on the Pacific islands but that especially because he did not believe that the tropics were not as suitable for children as Iowa's more moderate sunshine he wouid take the tall corn state. The major was stationad at the island territory for about a year, returning shortly before the famous Massie murder case broke. In Hawaii, Major Saul knew the original Charlie Chan, of Earl Derr Bigger*' stories, who discovered the murder of the native in the Massie case. Hawaii's Charlie Chan was not a real Chinese but a Hawaiian-Chinese, the people who correspond to the Irish policeman in this country. Men of this race, chiefly, staff the ipolice force of Honolulu. Fate Solves Murder Lieutenant Maasie'E mother in- law, Mrs. fortescue, was driving the car carrying the body of the murdered man. Fear caused her 10 speed on a straight stretch of rouii where Hawaii's Charlie Chan was ways very light complexioned with dark hair. Cardenas is Rt-ul .Mexican These two different classes make a problem in Mexico. The real Spanish, some of whom trace their ancestry directly back to Cortez, have always ruled the country, although in the minority. Now Cardenas, a real Mexican, one of mixed Spanish and Indian blood, is president and part of Mexico's present troubles hinge on the class troubles. For although Cardenas is president the pure Spanish Mexicans control business and bunking. One of the incidents Saul remembers most vividly was the occasion when the 10th United States Cavalry, a negro unit, came out of .Mexico after a luckless session of cna.Miig Villa, the Mexican bandit who harrassed the border ut that time. The cavalry was paid regularly in gold but while on'duly- had no place to spend it. In typical style they gambled it with the result that a efw members of the troop eventually won all the gold so much that they had to throw iiway most of their equipment anil hire others to help them carry it Win From Alma in Afternoon, Lose to Black Missions Total Johnson 7th inning. 30 10 4 for Godfredson In the trapping speeders.

The night game despite the decisive score was a tight contest until ;he final frame when the visiting team scored six runs. Marc«U Hit* Homer Previous to that time Peques of the Brownies and Haddix, broad shouldered Mission musketeer, had been hooked up in a tight hurling duel. The Brownies got a run in the second, the only time they had a lead. The touring team got two in the fourth and a solitaire in the seventh when its catcher, got an inside the park homer, a ringing drive that rolled to the center held fence. Both clubs got a pair of runs in the eighth inning, making the score 5 to 3, but the Missions went to work in their half of the ninth and' broke up the ball game, putting over \ six runs. ; Bancroft Tomorrow i Peques and Morgan, the battery' for the Brownies, put up u goo'l 1 game most of the way. the former] being the victim of some weak -••up- port at tir.ies.

BANCROFT NINE TOPS NO. KOSSUTH LOOP A 1 to 0 defeat of Bancroft, leader of the league for the first half of the season, by Swea City, a cellar occupant, featured the final games of the first half of the North Koshuth league schedule. Swea City's upset win provided an opening for n tie for the league lead, but Titonka, which had been in second place, took the count from the underdog Lotts Creek nine by a 5 to 3 score. It wus a bad duy for the top ranking teams. Wesley, which had been ulone in third i place, bowed to Whittemore, 8 to I -1. In the other game played, Hurt • defeated Rlngsted 5 to 'i. \ These games were the last on the regular playing schedule of the firat half of the season for the North, KosButh teams.
