B. Johnston here Saturday morning. Fined $20 and costs each, were Alex Reefer and Charles Reefer, and fined $5 and costs was Alvin Loss. The two Reefers were charged with intoxication and resisting arrest. Loss was charged with intoxication. Blow By Blow The story began somewhere between Algona and Burt, last Friday. The men said they drank a little beer. When they got to Burl, and disembarked, they ran into Constable Steward. He said he requested them to leave town at once, but the idea didn't seem to click with the visitors. Words followed, and Alex Reefer, according to Steward, took a swing and struck the constable. The latter retaliated by pulling out a billy and giving Reefer a crack, stunning him so that Steward was able to slip on the handcuffs Charlie Reefer also came into the picture about this time but was brought under control without violence. Loss, who was driving the car, made no disturbance. The three were brought to Algona where the charge was filed, and the hearing was held the following day.
