THE LENOX TIMETABLE. LENOX, IOWA «HtHiimmmiiiimimiiiiimimiimu j Our f EXCHANGES I I Say: Dog Was Hallowe'en Victim Adel News—This Is a story of the life and death of a dog-—a fine, gentle, hard working, useful Collie dog, owned by Charles Bailey, who resides on the old Van Meter farm, southeast of Adel. The dog brought the cows In from the timber pasture at milking time, took them back in the morning and otherwise did the work of a man or boy. So well trained was the animal that he separated the milk cows from the steers and did other things of a seemingly impossible nature. Then the dog became sick. Dr. Q. N. Gubser performed an operation lor appendicitis, or whatever corresponds to appendicitis in the canine world, and the dog started getting better right away. The veterinary, wishing to keep him under observation for a time,, placed him on a bed of straw In the little barn used to shelter Edward's pony. Then the bad break came. A number of boys unsatisfied with the work they had done on Hallo- we'en night, spied the building erect and homelike. In the absence of any "outside plumbing" in the neighborhood they gave vent to their overcharged spirits by pushing the building over. Then of course, the yellow streak showed and they ran. The next morning Dr. Oubser went out to feed the sick pet and found him dead. He had been tied up with a chain and when the building went over the dog was hung. No one blames the owner for feeling the loss of the dog. No one blames Dr. Oubser for expressing the opinion he has of the boys. No one would feel bad if the culprits were caught and punished. Pigeon Shot in Safety First Campaign Indianola Record —When the sound of shotgun fire is heard on the public square it is no evidence of violation of the migratory bird law. It is only Drs. Weeks and Grant shooting pigeons off the top of Berkley Wilson's building to save the heads and footing of people en- tering the Stanley Prall law office. The pigeons do not seem to understand that relief headquarters have been moved to another corner of the square, so Berkley Wilson got permission of the mayor fdr the two good hunters across the street to shoot pigeons from the top of his building. Wih the same care with which these dentists avoid giving pain to their patients, they choose times to shoot when the hurtling pigeon will not strike the heads of pedestrians below. It has puzzled a good many who were passing on the east side of the street. The report of the small guage gun would be echoed from the building on the west side and a pigeon would come tumbling down from the same side. Some people have thought the pigeon had exploded from high blood pfres- sure. Afton Board Rejected Bids Afton Star Enterprise—Three bids were received for the building of the high school gymnasium and auditorium, all of which were rejected as they exceeded the amount the board had planned to spend. The amount of bonds voted and the grant approved by the government amounts to $19,091, and the bids received were as follows: Ray Emerson, Creston, $23,104; P. W. Vawter, Des Moines, $23,960; G. Jordan, Centerville, $23,858.74. Mr. Emerson submitted the lowest bid. The board will set another date for receiving bids and try to get a bid that can be accepted. There has been an advance in the cost of building material in the past few weeks which accounts for the higher bids. Cats Are Unconventional Adel News — The strangest tale reported to this column in many months was that of the cat. Not exactly a cat tail, but a true tale about a cat. It happened about ten days ago. A motorist from Woodward drove into the Mitchell Motor Co. shop to have some repair work done. A mechanic raised the hood and there perched or sat, or crouched, the family cat, which should have been lapping up some milk at the Woodward home. Joe Stump pried the animal loose from its perch and it took all the rest of the force to catch the pussy and put it In a more Soon.... Near^Zei , .;• when yoijir en|me .' < ~-'f ',.

How the pet got under the hood no one knows, but it traveled about 25 miles safely. The quarters were so close that its nose was only about an inch from the fan, but the only injury sustained was some singed fur on a spot where kitty backed up against the manifold. Sixty Cent Corn at Indianola Indianola Tribune — William Couch sold 100 bushels of corn a few days ago to a Missouri trucker for 60 cents a bushel. The buyer wanted to take more at that price, but Mr. Couch declined to sell any more for less than 65, although the Missouri man intimated he would come to 62 1-2. This buyer said he had been looking around for cdrn to haul south, as wet weather cut short a crop down there by delaying planting until too late. He said he thought the corn in Warren county is the best he has seen, the best matured and one of the best yields. It is better, he said, than any he had seen either north or south of here in the territory from which he was accustomed to haul corn. It is rather freely predicted by some good traders that Warren county corn will be selling for more than 75 cents a bushel before the last of March. Pol- lowing a year of no carry-over of old corn, this year's crop will be light In much of the normally best corn country. Much of the Illinois crop could not be planted until the middle of June and will be immature. It Is not improbable that there will be a ready market for thousands of bushels of well ripened corn for seed next spring at a fancy price. Ditched the Calf Indianola Tribune — Some men visited the farm of Lloyd Blackford near Norwald Saturday and cut a calf's throat, let it bleed, then carried the calf about a half mile down the road and threw it in a ditch. Evidently someone came and frightened them, or the calf was too large to carry any farther in the car. The tracks showed the car went all over the road in the attempt to drive away, Sheriff Prank Houghtaling said. Cattle Thief Caught Malvern Leader —Some time last Thursday night seven head of cattle were taken from the farm of Mrs. Cora Munsinger near Tabor. About noon the next day Mrs. Munsinger discovered her loss and reported it to the sheriff's office in county, Friday the cattle were sold in a sale barn in Auburn, Nebr. Saturday the cattle were all located in four different points in Nebraska and Saturday night at 10 o'clock Sheriff DeMoss had landed Harold Johnson in jail charged with taking the cattle and disposing of them. The cattle had first been taken to a barn in Tabor. From there they were trucked Friday by A. Bice, an innocent truck- man of Tabor, to Auburn where they were sold at auction. Johnson is alleged to have sold the cattle and taken a check for them which he cashed in Nebraska City. Shortly after the check was ordered held up and Johnson was arrested and held for the Mills county, sheriff. Pretty rapid work all around. Th^ee Broke Jail At Leon Leon Jornai-Herald — Three prisoners, the only occupants of the Decatur county jail, dug through the walls and escaped early Saturday morning. The trio were Ernest Perry, 45, Washington, D. C.; Harry Young, 19, Cedar Rapids, and Forrest Russell 20 Trenton, Mo. Perry was awaiting trial on a charge of short changing and robbery. He had been in pail since early September. Both Young and Russell were serving sentences. Young was serving his second month on a sentence of six months following his arrest on a charge of contributing to the delinquency of a minor. Russell had served one month of his sentence of four months. Russell was found guilty of shop lifting. The jailbreakers made their escape by loosening bricks and digging into the partition wall at a turn and crawling out at a point in the brick wall. They used a blanket to slide down to the ground below. Authorities believe the trio escaped in a 1931 Chevrolet coupe owned by J. L. Petticord, which was stolen from in front of his home north of Leon on highway 69 sometime after midnight Friday. This is the third jail break from the Decatur jail this year. Unf ound Were Not Lost Clarinda Herald-Jornal—Much kidding resulted from the notice of "undelivesred" drivers licenses in Monday's Herald- Journal—until it became an issue. Is the postoffice inefficient in its delivery, or was there something strangely befuddled at the state office? Addresses given in the Ufit were known to be correct, so the Jocal poatoffice began investi- gating the "charge", for] seemed on the surface, suit was to find within j minutes of investigating nine of the Clarinda list I tually received thefr many weeks ago.
