That takes him off the list of untagged animals roaming the town and much talked about Incidentally, number three auto license plate rests on- the Lusby car, a fixture of past seasons. * * • Tom Dalley qualified f or the popcorn crown a few nights ago:' Not as a showman but as an eater. In fact Tom doesn't like the sight of popcorn right now. • * • Ira Hewitt of Swea City was one of a party of four who bagged a deer in Minnesota during the open season. It took him four days of hunting with a guide to do it thereby realizing a lifetime ambition. That state sets the price high for deer hunting, about what half a dozen would cost buying them outright • * * Al Spongberg couldn't let the last two days of open time for fishing go by without trying his luck in the river. Fishing is Al's hobby and ice didn't stop him for long. Al fished and fell in, the ice giving way. He tried It again and the ice did all it could to hinder him for it broke the second time letting him down into the water. No fish. • • • Thanks, P. G. Cullen, for your letter.

Joe Lowe sent in several wrappers to the corporation at New York inquiring about the use of his name. The vice president of the company sent a nice long letter back among other things passing the greetings of the day. All is well. How about a little hint. Pass theae words along, "Joe Lowe for governor." Those should form the 1940 slogan. We have heard those over and over the past year or so. Let's get started. • * * Norton's have an added feature with their coal deliveries. If you live far out ar.u find it necessary to walk, have them bring coal to you, and when returning the driver, Geo. Steil, especially, will taxi you uptown providing you're not too large to ride In the cab. It's free. • • • B. B. Hlckenlooper, lieutenant governor, fits right into the seat with experience. Those who know him real well, and some from here have roomedt with him, tell that Hick used to be an elephant trainer with a circus. He has a task now of training the biggest elephant of his career so far, the state G. O. P. • * • A trend In the line of general farming seems to be that of sheep raising, or feeding. Nearly every other {arm has a flock of sheep most of which have been shipped in from the west. Only a short time back if was rare in thia locality. Taken to Hospital L. R. Dutton, father of Mrs. Wallace McArthur was taken to the Kosauth hospital at Algona last Tuesday and will remain there for two or three weeks for treatment.
