Many motorists have complained to me about the hitch-hikers. Their question usually is. "What shall we do with the hitch-hikers?" My answer is: "Let him hike." Frequently people decide to pick up hitch-hikers, stop suddenly on road, give no warning to otherj behind them, and thus cause accidents, i Hitch-hikers themselves are becoming more daring dally. To avoid hitting them motorist have to turn out of their regular lane of traffic and thereby endanger other cars going in the opposite direction. The sooner we let the hitch-hiker nike, the sooner he will disappear Don't put off until tomorrow re- paira that should be made today. Keep your car in good condition. You cannot exercise the care essen- Ual to safe driving on a highway ivh«n your car will not respond to .he strain put on it. Sudden changes if lights, and unusual hazards on .he road require quick action. Your car must be in the beat possible mechanical shape to meet such situations. LEAGUE BATTING AVERAGESGIVEN North Kossuth League Was a Pitcher's Year, Though, Any Way You Look at It Fred Rowe of Ringsteds league runner-ups was named batting champion of the Kossuth circuit finishing the season with the healthy average of .395. Second place went to Diem of Swea City with the neat mark of .381. There is a slight cloud over these records, however, because Titonka, Whittemore and the champion Bancroft Lions did not turn in their players' averages. After the two leaders have been considered, the averages of the league drop off sharply. B. Erdman of Wesley balled. 350 during the season to get third place among the hitters and Vern Meyers of Ringsted with .340 was the only other slugger to top .333. It was mostly a pitcher's year with the flingers, led by L«fty Hatten of the champion Lions, setting the sluggers down regularly. No figures for pitchers are available at this time but there is little doubt that Hatten was tops. Wes Patterson of Ringsted was a close second during the latter part of the season and Keene of Whittemore, Erdman of Wesley and Alderson and Luedtke of Lotts Creek, although not as consistent winners, turned In some classy elbowing during the season.

If he was raising a devil, this child must be a fool for no one could be or would be a devil unless he was a fool. According to this line of logic when it comes to buying mnckinaws, I must be both for we are loaded on Mackinaw Coats for men nnd boys. For comfort and long wear I would rather have one good northern Mackinaw coat than an arm full of suede leather. You can depend on a Mackinaw. It will wear and give satisfaction for years. A suede coat or blazer is like a grass widow, you can not trust either of them from one day to the next. These coats nrc made of genuine all wool Northern Mackinaw. They are very stylish, belted, pleated hacks and well taif- ored. In a regular way they nre worth from $5.50 to $6.00. We have an over supply and for quick sale are offering the men's at $3.95. You will get more good, more comfort out of one of these eonts thnn from any $3.95 you ever spent. The boys' blazers nre selling at 32.00 and $2.75. For Men, Women, Boys and Girls there Is no garment that beats a good mackinaw for fall ami winter wear. All combination of colors, also plnin blue They arc sporty, lota of wenr, nnd ensy lo look nt.
