A good-sized number of people attended a card party and dance last Friday night at the K. C. hall. This for the Catholic the young man faces twice each day. He is armed with only a chair, a whip, and a revolver loaded with .blank cartridges. Even the whifTls not used as a weapon, the trainers seldom striking an animal with it. The snap of the whip Is found more effective. Not even guards posted on r.he outside of the ring carry loaded revolvers, for it is dangerous to fire Inside, a packed tent, for fear a stray shot hits a spectator. The guards are equipped only with long poles with two tines like a pitchfork's. If an animal goes wild and attacks the trainer, he must back up against the wall of the cage, while the guards outside hold the beast at bay with the poles. This, Beatty explained to the reporter, is the theory. He doubts that the guards could stop an enraged cat. A special thrill was given the audience here last summer, when one of the cats grabbed a dog which was passing over a runway for the animals and nearly killed it. was a benefit church.

The first of these shows took place in 1912, and they were regular for a number of years. Then, with an interval from about 1922, they were resumed last year, and this year they branched out to include many products. There were nearly as many corn and small grain entries as in any year, and the corn and oats were of first quality and a splendid-looking lot. Reid's Reliance corn was prominent on all tables, and took first and sweepstakes in both professional and amateur classes. Rome Robison, well known Kossuth breeder, was prominent in the winnings again, but divided honors to some extent with Arthur Look, Lu Verne. White corn proved to have lost much of its old-time show popularity; in fact the yellow corn men had about 90 per cent of the corn. The corn and small grain was handled by the popular and well known Paul Taff, of Ames, who is first choice for many shows of this kind. Corn was entered last Thursday,- and was judged Friday.

BANK INSTALLS NEW MODEM EQUIPMENT A new Burroughs posting machine was installed last week-end at the Kossuth County State bank, and the entire bookkeeping system of the bank was changed and modernized. Under the new system the •work of posting can be done in half of the time required under the old system. The form of the statement sheets, on which the accounts are kept, was also changed. The bank will now operate from noon to i on clearing checks, instead of from 4 to 4 p. m. This means that checks deposited in the afternoon will be considered in the following day's business, which is completed a noon, so that posting and book worl can be done in the afternoon, and the remittances gotten away quick ly. A new system of making remit tances has also been installed wherein seven separate operations have been reduced to three. In l.h old system all had to be written ou by hand, but under the new system all work is done on a posting machine. In making remittances of checks written on outside banks it la necessary that the amount of the check, the bank on which it is written, and the last endorser of the check be given. Bach bank has a number. The Kossuth County State's number is 72-309. Instead of Ing, and was conducted by A. B. Schenck, of Algona, well known figure at Lu Verne shows. Saturday was the big day, and the fternoon was one of the biggest Lu /erne has experienced. A colt-judg- ng contest and colt show were in he hands of Harry Linn, who is a arge part of every event of this •clnd. The 13 colte were most of hem real pictures, and competition vas of the keenest nature. After ue consideration, first place was .warded to a young black Percher- n shown by Floyd Gregory, princl- ially on account of its action. Colts f Elmer Merlde, Dick Dunphy, lobert Sanford, and Edwin HeftI vere shoved down the line with con- iderable difficulty. In both the Junior and senior lasses of beef calves Geishecher alves stood at the top, but the jeieheckcr calves did not take all of he prizes, as some fine black ani- nals owned by Emil Anderson irawled into second place In both ihows, and in that kind "of company t had to be speaking a mouthful. L'wo fine white club calves, the property of sons of Gottlieb Hanselman, had to be considered In the •senior show. Other ribbons in the unior show were won by Erwin Triday, Harold Gronbach;~and Frank Moedlng. Carl Olson had charge of this work, and anyone who knows anything about beef calves in the state of Iowa knows what it means to have Mr. Olson present. Classes in dairy calves and dairy cows were hastily arranged, but were first-quality shows, bringing out entries of a surprisingly fine loi of dairy animals. In the calf class William Hof, with a young Holsteir heifer, won, with a Brown Swiss and a Jersey following. The cow sho\\ was won by Roy Depew with a Brown Swiss—as pretty an anlma as is often seen. Next places in this class were won by splendid Jerse; specimens owned by 'Clifford Holmes. Nine first class lamba comprise) the sheep division, and they wer judged by a Mr. Schultz, of Ames who also had charge of the dairy cattle. First five places in orde were won by Floyd Lowmiller, Hoi writing out the bank number is now given. name, Each the customer who endorses a large number of checks on outside banks is also given a number.
