This prowling of backyards has been going on for some time. It increases In summer for obvious reasons — windows open, and so on. This resident reported that he heard the prowler and then the sound fit running. Later he found that the man had bar- reled into a badminton net in the backyard. If the net had been anchored solidly it would have been a clean catch. Perhaps even acting like a sling shot to send the prowler back against the house with such a slam that he would have been suitably unconscious for safe delivery to the police. This bit of business, stumbled on by accident, set minds racing. One fellow thought that the old-fashioned croquet set should come back in vogue. "It would make an ideal prowler catcher," he said. A racing prowler catches his foot in a croquet wicket and the ground conies up to meet him in such haste that he is putty in the hands of his pursuer. Or better still, he catches his foot in POLICE SEEK ELDERLY WOMAN Police Thursday sought anj GODFREY—A new church has!

Lets take up tomato size now and a Main street resident is doing just that. The tomato garden of Mr. and Mrs. William Turner, 609 Main St., has yielded a one- pound, and three - quarters ounces tomato that measures more than a foot and four inches in circumference. There is no fudging on this. Mrs. Turner took the mammoth to her grocer who weighed it and vowed he never uses thumbs. She measured the circumference on instructions of the reporter who waited on the schedule last night was that the action started about an hour later than that of Wednesday night. But otherwise everything fitted snugly even to the leaving | of so many questions unanswered. Nothing like a summer night to get people looking skyward. What for? Clouds bringing cool rain?
