Thus far the roving groups of youngsters have done nothing of a serious nature. Arrests will result in any cases of property damage. A small amount of damage has been reported in the vicinity of Como and county officers will keep track of things In that section, also in and around the East Science Rdige school. Nuts Are Plentiful But Weather Is Bad It would be excellent nutting weather if it wasn't for the rain. The recent frost loosened the nuts and they drop easily, but the continued dampness is keeping the youngsters out of the groves. Hickory nuts are unusually plentiful, it was said, while there is an abundance of walnut* where there are trees, but the trees are scarce. Because of this, nuts are one thing that should be cheap this seaaon. Newest British life saving device, shown here, consists of small canister from which cloud of orange smoke will ri*e for an hour.

Hendrlcka, Leander Hens, John Dillon and William Pearson are home from Mitchell, S. D, where they spent four days hunting. They drove, hitting a bit of snow and sleet between .Mitchell and Sioux Falls on their way back Wednesday. The Sterling hunters bagged their limit of pheasants each day. They also got a few ducks and an occasional "Hungarian partridge. Waterfowl, however, proved as scarce as they are in this vicinity. Pheasants are unusually numerous. The owner of the quarter section on which they did most of their hunting has kept an account of the number of birds bagged on his property and. since the season opened, 600 birds have been killed. The local group enjoyed themselves thoroughly.
