Purloined! * * • Two big game hunters are Paul Dremmel and Jess Dugan of Burt. Armistice night they went hunting. A-hunting for oysters. No luck at Burt or Bancroft but at Algona they filled their bag with a quart of the scarce and slippery things from a cafe. * * • There are tricks to all trades and Mel Miner has one which is worth passing on. When he dines at a cafe and runs short of butter he is promptly rewarded with an extra pat by calling to one of the waitresses, "Lighting, I'm entirely out." * * * No doubt a few men encroach up- the rights of the state in the matter of hunting. Leads to such ideas from the hunters themselves. For Instance—one of them said, "they don't have the sales tax where I come from", although using a resident license.
