Kiirht VOI., -NO. >i 7.60 INCHES RAIN SWAMPS COUNTY The Melons Were Ripe; The Aim Was Punk; One Injury, Four Scares Titonka: It happens efery year, and this time It happened in the Tltonkn. neighborhood. And from now on, certain high school boys will content thetn- selves with watermelons from the family refrigerator or from the local markets. It all happened last Saturday night Thinking to have unmet fun, they derided to raid a melon patch north of town, but it was a game that two could piny at The farmer who owned the patch heard them, and decided to have a little fun of his own. To frighten them, ho fired a (tun, and a stray shot hit one of the boys in the neck, inflicting a flesh wound. The boys did not wait to see if the melons went "pink" or "punk punk" but hopped Into their car and made It back to town faster than Wahington Irving'* "Old Man Headless." The pain in the youth's nerk finally drove the one boy to the- doctor. It Isn't strange that there is now one group of boys who have lost their appetite for melons for this season.

Five regulars from last year s team will be in the line-up for the opening game, but according t< Father Ahman, coach of the loca team, the success of this year's club will depend largely on the development of new pitchers to replace Jim Watts and Leonard Seipman, veterans of the last two seasons who were lost by graduation.

The spectacular shooting of Sergt. and Mrs. Leo Allstot of Mason City will be one of the many special exhibitions at the annual big free event. Allstot is an officer in the Mason City police force. From the time he and his wife gave their first exhibition at a school for a milk fund benefit about four years ago they have gone far up the ladder in their hazardous hobby shooting nt conventions ( air shows, motorcycle hill climbs, private clubs, banquets, etc. The largest crowd they have performed before was the Northwest Sportsmen's show at the Municipal auditorium at Minneapolis last fall when 18,000 saw this pair of crack shots perform. The AHstots start their most un- unusual exhibition of skill and daring with a demonstration of the ef fectiveness of various types of bullets fired into common laundry soap which reacts much the same as flesh when struck by a bullet. The common .22 caliber cartridge with rounc nose lead bullet, high speed cart ridge with hollow point, .38 specia ' and the .38 caliber wad * tft'«y«KliHR*CHlpletely ahat terlng the bar of soap, are used Mrs. Allstot then takes up the plsto for her part of the mnrksmanshir net, shooting n a dove rock disk wit) the pistol in various positions, in eluding inverted. The only woman member of a national chnrnpionshi) pistol team then shoots small candj wafers about the size of a quarter with either hand nnd climaxes her shooting with a pistol on which the front sight of the gun is covered with cardboard. Leon Merritt, the general chairman of the Kossuth County Fiel Day wns very mad at L. M. Merritt. the local weatherman, yesterday. In fact, Mr. Merritt. the Field Day chairman, was on the point of fisticuffs with Weatherman Merritt. "Ha, you varlet," quoth Mr. Merritt to Mr. Merritt, "Try to spoil Field Day, would you, why I could kill you to death?" This was accompanied by a tentative right hand to the jaw that missed but kayoed two members of the family who were anxiously watching the outcome. "I warn, you. Weatherman Merritt," said Chairman Merritt, "that it better not rain one more drop nnd what's more the water at the Bancroft dam had better go down sudden." We're not sure this all happened, of course, but the fact is that Weatherman-Field Day General Chairman Leon Merritt was worried considerably over the prospects of the sue of the Fourth Annual Field Day be ing innundated but now states that he believes the land will be quite dry by Sunday and the biggest and be.-t Field Day yet will be run off without a hitch. According to Weatherman Merrill's observation there was no precipitation during the day Monday and the water at Bancroft should be steadily receding. He was not interviewed after this morn ing' shower, however. Other events on the program will provide relief from the tension of the AHstots' performance. Such numbers as the kids' parade and the dicing dogs will provide comedy and novelty while other thrills are in store during the greyhound race, canoe race and other such events. With the program rounded out by the Luedtke game exhibit, rifle, pistol and trap shooting and a myriad of other events the fourth annual holding of the Field Day promises to surpass all others. As a show and sporting event of this magnitude, entirely free for nil stpctators. Field Day appears likely to become Kossuth county's mo.-.t famous institution and its officers predict that Field Day will grow until it becomes nationally famous. Queen Winner Starts Pacific Coast Trip With 24 cases involving H.-K. 2. the drainage project, swelling the total, a flood of last minute filings swamped the district clerk of court's office Friday, the last day on which civil suits could be filed. A total of 38 new cases were entered upon the records Saturday, bringing the totnl number to be heard during the session of district court which opens Monday, to 89. Criminal cases are not numerous nor arc there any which promise undue excitement. Several driving- while-drunk cases arc on the criminal docket and also that of Nick Nemmers, Bancroft resident, who if. charged with complicity in the chicken stealing case which caused the county to chuckle. After Nemmers and his companion O. t,. Hopkins had been arrested on the charge mentioned, Ncmmers' brother visited him in jail nnd while here sought to solace him with n •Irink of alcohol. He was cmight n the act and also clapped in jail. The good snmnritan. Ncmmers. and Hopkins pleaded guilty to their respective charges and were sentenced, but Nick Nemmers pleaded not guilty nnd since then has remained n jail in lieu of bond. During thnt time he has had an operation for appendicitis to relieve the monotony. In one rather odd case on the docket, there were 23 defendants named. Ernest HabCRcr hns brought suit in a partition proceedings nnd named 23 defendants, The H. K. 2 cases or the suits Involving the Humboldt-Kos.suth joint drainage project arc the outgrowth of many protests over nn assessment for clean-up work on the drainage canals.

New Portable Here The newest thing in typewriters, the Corona Zephyr, a full-Hedged portable typewriter that retails for $29.75. is on display at the Upper DCS Moines office. The machine weighs only eight pounds. the work was heavy and turned oui to be even greater than expected official? 4ay. because of the heavy rains wlilch undid- 'much of the work. - • The expense wns allowed nt .1 joint meeting of the supervisors, however, and the plaintiffs nro ap- npalincr the derision.

Liquor Sales Up $1,000 Past Month Algona and Kossuth < ounty people bought nearly $1.000 worth more of intoxicating liquor during the month of August than they did during July sales reports on Iowa liquor stores show. The trend towards more drinking in August was statewide, however, as the total sales for the state rose from $696.677.19 to $784,720.99. Algona's increase was about 15 per cent over the month of July while the increase for the state was 12 per cent. The total spent at the local store was higher than many neighboring cities of similar size however. Cities having less sales than Algona are Sheldon. Creston, Carroll, Decorah.

Joseph Krieps, Algona, is charged with failure to dim his car's lights when meeting another machine, and Lawrence Costigan, Buffalo Center, will answer to a charge of operating his car at an excessive rate of speed. Patrolman John Henderson is the complaining witness in both cases. Six and seven-tenths tnchc<= of rain in the past week has left Kossuth county a soggy sponge, from which there were signs today that dry weather might be in Btore for this section this week. The climax to the almost daily rnins in the past week came early Monday morning, when another downpour brought .71 inches of rain in Algona. and heavier rain thnn that in the southern part of. tho county. A dehiffc again, Tuesday morning, run the total np to 7.BO inched. North Kossuth s:so reports mrre rainfall than Algonn.
