Why don't you ever get a woman in your Who's Who, we were asked, recently, which did sort of make us stop and think that maybe, without Intending to, we had overlooked the ladles. So we got to going over names, and when we found Mrs. J. H. Warburton of Lakota, had been honored by other Kossuth county women-folk to the extent of being reelected head of the Kossuth Federation of Women's clubs for three times, and had also been county chairman of the women's project work in the county for the past eight years, we visited her. Mrs. Wwburton was Just finishing making a mighty nice smelling batch of cookies in the kitchen of the Warburton home, a half mile east of Lakota. when we arrived. Will Brown, manager of the Peterson. Studio, had brought his new home photographic outfit along with him, and several pictures were the net result. The new contrivance will take pictures in anyone's home, Just as well as In the studio. Mrs. Warburton Is no stranger to Kossuth's citizens. She was born Just west of Algona, and her parents were one of the pioneer families of the coun- y, coming here In 1870. Mrs. J. H. Noble, mother of Mrs. Warburton, Is now maknlg her home with thi ?•::•«. Warburton taught school at Gerled, and since her marriage 38 years ago, she and Mr. Warburton have resided in Lincoln township. A keen interest in women's club work of all kinds, national and international affairs, and books characterise Mts. Warburton. The large number of volumes in the family library, unlike many other collections, shows distinct signs of having been wed. She teaches a Local Bank Pays $260,802 Corn Loans A total of $260303.03 in corn loans money has been paid out by the Iowa State Bank since the corn loan went into effect, Ralph Miller, president, stated Tuesday. That amount la now actually in the hands of the corn loan borrowers. At the same time, he added that $51,101.10 more is in the process of getting approved, and should be here within six days. It la now taking about six days for a corn loan to get official government approval. The total sum of corn loan money in Kottuth county to well over a h«|f mii. lion dollars, court bouse records have revealed.

Danson, Justice, when he and the plaintiff, E. H. Mttzdorf, were ordered to split the costa of the case and let the matter drop. The recommendation was made by Maurice McMahon, county attorney. Mltzdorf, according to the story, formerly roomed at the Taft home. He left his sheepskin overcoat there, and returned to get it after some time had elapsed. It happened that a brother- in-law of Taffs way wearing it at the time on a trip and Mitzdorf could not get it then. One thing led to another, and finally the whole matter led to the justice court.

Holcorab announced that he would be a candidate for supervisor on the republican ticket in the June primary." Not all of the candidates mentioned above were as definite about their plans is was Mr. Holcomb. several stated ;hat they were undecided, but did not 'ndlcate they they would not run. Both H. B. White and P. A. Daneon. at present holding the offices of Justices of the peace, have been mentioned as candidates for county attorney, but in all probability If they do not run for 'hat post, will seek reelection as J. p.'s.
