In the fight that took place Saturday evening at the farm home of Mrs. Luke Riley, flve miles north and west of Hardy in Humboldt county, Denny Northrop also of LuVerne, received knife wounds on his right cheek, hand and side, according to Deputy Sheriff Mervin Johnson of Humboldt, who checked the incident. Northrop was treated by Dr. Schultz of Humboldt that evening after the incident. As Deputy Sheriff Johnson pieced the story together, the two men, Hardcopf and Northrop had engaged in some wagering in a LuVerne tavern that afternoon, in which it seemed to be a case of Northrop losing along the line. Later the two men went to the Riley place. In the course of events, an argument developed, then a fight, and the knife incident terminated the session. Northrop signed a complaint against Hardcopf, the Humboldt office reported, and the preliminary hearing was held in the court of Mayor James Mallory of LuVerne. A surety bond for $500 was posted in the matter. Steel Theft Is Admitted A theft of steel from two county bridges almost two years ago was solved during the past week as investigation by the sheriffs office here resulted in the arrest of Larry Reefer, 21, Algona, who waived preliminary hearing of a charge of malicious injury to a bridge in Mayor Bill Finn's court and was bound over to district court. Appearance bond in the matter was set at $1,000 and furnished. The pieces of steel disappeared from the bridges in July, 1964 and the case, which was investigated then, was reopened by Sheriff Ralph Lindhorst when he received a tip that Reefer had been involved. Further investigation after the tip by Deputy Sheriff Pon Wood and County Engineer H. M. Smith proved the steel had been used in the construction of a trailer, allegedly by Reefer. The trailer, built to hold a stock car, bad since been sold to another man here.
