EIGHT FRIENDS HAVE FUN AT COST OF NEWLYWEDS • Friends who "swore out a warrant" and had P. P. Zerfass and his •bride, formerly Lucille Wlndell, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W. S. "Wlndell, arrested on charges of illegal possession of a (stuffed) pheasant, had great fun at the couple's expense last week Wednesday might, and the newlyweds entered into the spirit of the occasion. Deputy Sheriff Claude Samson -.-and Marshal F. W. Green chased the •.pair to Wesley and caught them at the Julius Kunz home, where they • "were preparing to make a getaway. In the meantime County Attorney Shumway and Justice L. A. Winkel •were in wait here for the Zerfasses to be brought home for trial. They •declined emphatically, however, to • risk themselves in Algona, so Mr. Shumway and Mr. Winkel obliged 'them by going to Wesley. On being arraigned for trial, Mr. ! .Zerfass entered a, plea of not guilty. THe was asked If he had an attorney, • and said he did not, after which he • ottered a "pauper's plea" for the appointment of defense counsel. L. E. X.innan was appointed by Justice ""Winkel. An attempt to appoint H. "W. Miller also failed when Shumway declared that Miller was his chief '-witness and Mr. Zerfass objected to '.having the complaining witness as -Jus attorney. Miller testifie'd that Mr. Zbrfass "had the stuffed pheasant. This had ibeen borrowed for the occasion from -Dr. W. D. Andrews, and the county ^attorney introduced It as Exhibit A. Sir. Miller declared that ho was '•certain it was the same bird, because he had seen the mounting Aboard on the bird's feet when it fell. .He could also identify It, he said, by 'the grain on the hoard, as well as "by the bird's exceptionally long tail. Mr. Linnan had difficulty in ques- •"tions on cross-examination satisfactory to Justice Winkel, who would .'not give the defense a chance.

EDITH BOWYER RETAINS HOPE TILLTHE END By Irma D. Adams. Los Angeles, June 10—Nearly a year ago Edith Bowyer Whiffen left New York City and came to the home o£ her mother, Nellie G. Bowyer, In Hollywood, in search of health. For months it seemed as though, by some miracle, she might win out. She was always optimistic, cheerful, and patient, and everything known to both Christian and medical science was done to' help her; but It was a losing fight, for she was afflicted with cancer of the bone.

Mr. Miller said he had ffieen many varl-colored birds, —whereupon Mr. Linnan asked •Tvhether the alleged pheasant .might ••not in fact be a wlffendoofer. Mr. -3Iiller maintained, on the contrary, t-that the bird was really a pheasant, ."though he admitted that he was not iin proper condition to say whether ;:any bird was a wiffendoofer. Joseph Bloom was then placed on ~the stand, and he admitted that he ."knew nothing good about Mr. Zer- tfass. Mr. Zerfass, who followed Mr. CBloom, admitted being a wlffendoof- (<r fancier, and said the bird was out 'of his own private flock. Mrs. Zer- SSass was called as the next witness, 'and she testified that her husband <3iad always been kind, possessed an ••<excellent character, and wouldn't Oiarm a bird. During the proceedings Mr. Lin- .aian and Mr. Shumway frequently .^consulted each other on the lawn. i.31r.

In January her brother, Ambrose Bowyer, Chicago, and his wife came and spent a month in Hollywood, bringing much cheer into Mrs. Whiffen's life. Another sister, Marjorie Burls, also Chicago, was here at the same time and also spent several weeks trying to be helpful in every way. In spite of all efforts and the skill of doctors and nurses, Mrs. Whiffen grew weaker and weaker, till she passed peacefully away at her mother's home June 3. Funeral services were held June 5 in one of the chapels of the Pierce Bros. Funeral Home, it being fill ed with friends, many of whom had t some time or other lived at AI- ona. The wonderful organ music •as a forceful reminder of the beau- ful musician who had passed on. his was followed by the Christian cience service and two beautiful ongs, "There'll Be no Night There ml "Shepherd, Show Me How to o," sung sweetly by Edith's girl- ood friend, Crete Goddard Bruce. ianks of flowers were mute symbols f the sympathy of hundreds of rlends.

Bowyer. he spent her girlhood at Algona, ilways showing a marked talent and ove for music. She taught there a vhile, but whe n still young went o Chicago, where she studied and aught at the Chicago Musical col- ege. ' Later Mrs. Whiffen studied 'under he great masters in Italy and Rus- iia and became a most charming md accomplished pianist 'and organ- st. At the time she was stricken vith her dread disease she was ichieving great success in her- chosen art at New York City. It was her constant desire and ambition to get well and return to her work. Edith was married September U, 1904, at Algona to Walter C. Whiffen, who died at Moscow, Russia, August 2, 1827. He was a representative of the Associated Press, and this enabled the couple to live in many different countries: first in the United States, next in Mexico, then in Russia, finally, for years, at Peking, China. In addition to her mother, the brother Ambrose, and the sisters, Gwendolyn Norrie and Marjorie, Genevieve Field, who lives at Shanghai, China, survives. It is difficult to become reconciled to ths loss of such a. charming personality as 'that of Edith Bowyer Whiffen. She was as fine in spirit and as free from fault as human nature may be. A multitude of errors plus an excellent team defeated the Algona Grays, S-l, Tuesday afternoon at the local ball park before n, big crowd. The stand was crowded, and many were parked in cars around the field, which was recently skinned and put in excellent condition. Estherville scored in the second inning, got three runs in the third, and one each In the fourth, fifth, seventh, and ninth frames. Algona's only score came on a home run in the seventh inning, when Forrest Twogood knocked the ball way out into the pasture and galloped around the bases. Moulton at right field, and Mertz at left field accounted for two errors apiece, and "Marty, at center, was credited with the other Algona error. Guzy, Estherville pitcher, had the Algonians under control all through the game, and the locals did not seriously threaten to score. Algona had nine die on bases, and Estherville had H2. Algona had one earned run, land Estherville six. Cayou struck out three, and Guzy struck out eight. Each pitcher allowed two walks. At Charles City Sunday Algona won 5-4 after a hard fought battle with the Floyd county aggregation on the latter's home field before a large crowd. The teams were tied at the end of the ninth and tenth innings, but Hill, for Algona, cracked out a hit in the eleventh inning, bringing in the winning run. Last Thursday at Estherville the Algonians suffered their first defeat at the hands of Estherville 9-2. The game was much like the one here Tuesday, with the Algonians putting up a good game, but losing by a large score. Algona's infield worked excellently in all three Ejames.

It Is claimed that the Dyche museum Is one of the finest among those of state unlvesltles in this county, and that It has the largest and . finest collection of bird and turtle skeletons In the world. The first thing to attract the writer's attention museum was as; he •••entered'';.this the horse "Comanche," the only living 'being left of the U. S. forces on-the' field of battle after the Cueter massacre on the Little Big Horn in 1876. The story is that the horse, which had suffered seven flesh wounds, was found near, the scene of battle and subsequently taken to Fort Meade and afterward removed to Fort x Rlley, where he spent the remainder of his days,.".•which were ended' about 1892. By order of the commandlrtg officer at Fort Meade he was never ridden- after his rescue from the field of battle. Upon the death of Professor Dyche, of K. U., was engaged as taxidermist to mount him at the agreed upon compensation of $400, with the understanding that the exhibit would be sent with the K. .U exhibit to the World's fair at Chicago' in 1893; but as the $400 fee was never paid to Professor Dyche Comahche still occupies a prominent place on the first floor of thfe K.
