He reached into his coat and found it bare and then he looked at the half arc of empties at his feet and realized he was outdone, an empty game sack. • * • Politics is reaching a near high level In tne matter of bringing to one an idea of office seeker according to an ad in Saturday's local paper. It's a shame to ridicule a home town citizen who reared a family _here, pays and paid taxes to build up the city and community, big enough to help organize and head the contmerclal club, serve as county attorney, sit in the House of Representatives and the Senate, give a keynote address at the Republican National convention and small enough to stop and talk with those he knows on the street. Let us hope that ad is not the sentiments of all the opposing party members. If it is, the next two years are going to be boresome running around holding one's nose. Sorry for those fine gentlemen in office who would not be guilty of such practices. * * * But then men of the calibre who rceive brickbats are not all so bad.

Want Ad* TOM SHERMAN Water Witch Algona Man Tells of Water Witching In Younger Days Tom Sherman, well known Algona citizen for many years, in a letter to the Forum page of the Des Moines Register, relates how he located water in Humboldt county with a willow twig over BO years ago. Here Is how Tom found the water: 'The letters In The Sunday Open Forum concerning the reliability of the water witch as a means of locating subterannean veins of water recall that something more than 50 years ago while teaching a rural school at Owl lake in Humboldt county I "witched" a well for Geo. R. Pearsons of Fort Dodge. "The previous summer Pearsons had made some deal with local authorities to drain the lake and the marsh adjoining, and in return receive title to the lake bed, and the riparian rights of the adjoining lands. He wanted to dig a well and one evening asked where he could get a "water witch." I told him I could locate water for him as I was an experienced water witch. I had often manipulated the willow and apple twigs in a manner that would deceive even the elect. He at once asked me to see what I could do. The school house was on the south shore of the lake and just across the road was the site he had selected for his bulldnigs, so the following day during the noon In- Bert Southard Dies Bert Southard, who came from one Of Algona's early day families died at a hospital in Mason City las Wednesday, after ah Illness of about three years.

"Casually inquiring about where he wanted the well, I began a preliminary survey of the site, knowing full well that water would be found at about 30 feet, the water table under the alluvial soil of Iowa was much nearer the surface then than it is now. "I gravely got my twig In the right position and circled the spot and crossed and recrossed It a couple of times, and finally came to a stop a few feet from where he wanted the well and announced that water in abundance would be found at 30 feet. He dug the well and found water as predicted. Many years afterwards I saw the well intact and still doing business.—T. C. Sherman, Algona. « .
