Now we've discovered that we have a Capono In-this state, or rather, an alleged one. Seems his name IP Blumherff. Whether that's Swedish or Yiddish, he's accused of being Iowa's Al. 'Tis not so long since f 'T>t nn alleged rncketter was burled at Davenport, with oodles of i lowers and In a high priced coffin. And the papers say that Waterloo has Its wets of statewide notoriety While, nlso, Kenneth, of Des Moines, is coming In for publicity because of wet activities. Truly, in al] that is good and some that is bad, Iowa deigns not to trail along behind other stateH. t.—o And now a rich editor a< DCS Mollies posts n honil nt $0,000 'while lio seeks an Injunction to provent members of the 4t)i (1. A. from drawing tlielr sundry expense money. Must l)i' rich In order to provide so Mg a liond. Ax to what kind of an editor he Is—-well, I've learned flint It Isn't always tli« really best editors who liaye Unit mncli money. Tlie fact Unit an editor Is poor usually Is an Indication that IK; Is a real editor. I'd refer you to myself, for Instance. And don't forget Franklin—he didn't have enmifrh money to rnlse a ten dollar Injunction against a dog flu'ht. lint he was n pretty good editor ut that. WITH SPENCER ABOUT half burned out because of an explosion in a fire cracker store I expect some reformer will come to the front now and want to get another Volstead act on the books forbidding the manufacture or sale of'fire crackers. And I would not be surprised much if enforcement would be just about as expensive and half hearted as is the giggle water amendment. o—o IF WE COULD only enforce I the eighteenth and . pinch 'em and fine 'em like we enforce the income tax laws! See what the federal government did to Capone? o—o Notice the picture In the Sunday papers of the WneWood duchess over In England who has supervised lots of parties among the younger social set? She holds a dog In her amis. Don't know whether It's her dog or whether Jt belongs to the neighbors. But I find that our blue blood In this country Isn't much better than the blue blood In England. And the blueblooded women In this country carry <logs uronnd with 'em. Seems as though blue blood favors dogs Instead of kids. Mattel! Milkmcld The piping of the gontlierdR Is one of the novel experiences of those persons who take occasion to spend ft little time In the mountain towns in the Pyrenees mountains In the south of Prance. This music fills the early morning air. the milk people appearing soon nfter the break of dawn. These early morning visitors present a picturesque appearance. The pair consists generally of a lad and n maid, leading a herd of goats, and the lad Is equipped with homemade pan-pipes, and his music serves to cnll the housekeeper who appears In tlie door with a crock or heavy brass pitcher, and Into this the milk Is drawn directly from the animal. Jtoioluttoni I continue to make good resolutions, every night for the adoption next day; occasionally I get something out of them.—13. W. Howe's* Monthly.

HAMILTON'S LEGHORN FARM 1 mile west and 1 mile south of Bancroft. wanted uouneay ues Monies Register and 'rribune-^a.|)iuii. A FTER STARTING In a drug sto :e at the left lower corner the .wind carried fire Saturday at Spencer across the street to the right to level nearly four solid blocks of business buildings. This picture is taken from the Good News II, Reg *ter & Tribune plane, which was south of the blaze at the time. The Register plane brought the Des Moines fire chief and dynamite expert to help fight the blaze. IT REALLY is a shame that we should have such a thing as blue- blood distinction in these United States. Not that the bluebloods can help it. In fact their blood is red, though perhaps weak. ,'It's the dollars which add the darker ehade to their blood. There may be folks over here, in fact,! know there are, who haven't sense enough to pound sand into a rat hole, but they have lots of dollars. And they hang on to 'em, squeeze the buffalo on a nickel till he hellers, but by virtue of their dollars they are bluebloods; hold themselves better than the honest coal heaver! Hold thmselves above the Christian men and women who toil and sweat and sacrifice that they may raise a family of law abiding and honest citizens! , r>—0 • ON THE OTHER liana, because a woman lugs a dog around with her or lavishes her affections oil some other fool WM "> HRYSLE& ' ts animal pet, Is no Indication that she's a nlueblood, .Just something wrong with her, that's all. For it Isn't, nature's plan that n woman should feed and fondle a pup with one hand and kick a kid In the slats with the foot. Just Isn't In the book, that's all. o—o FOR THE BENEFIT of those who have not as yet realized it, I'd inform my readers again that times are hard. Last week, out In California, a hunch of our wealthy folks (who, by the way, are hard up too, to hear 'em moan about it) held a frog-jumping tqurnament. Seems that a certain species of frogs can Jump quite some considerable. Regular stables are maintained by some of the wealthy, and this particular brand of frog !s put on diet ana trained to jump. Then the owner brings his string of frogs to the tournament and the said frogs are By Wilbur J. Payne. The Charles L,. FroeHcha were spraying. their garden on the home farm northwest of Wesley on one of last "week's hot days. A week ago when we called that way, John Killian, who farms west of Wesley; was getting up and around the house after a siege of gallstone trouble. He had been at the Kossuth hospital, Algona. Hemme Troff, north of Ledyard, is this year tending 20 aicres of ,su gar beets and 60 acres ofc corji. Last year he tended 22 acres of beets and 50 acres of corn. ' There is a fine flowing 'well on the farm he .operates. 'Claus Hayungs, northeast of Wesley, recent'y. said he was cultivating 35 acres of corn daily with a 4-row tractor outfit, working six a. m. to 'eight p. m. He and his father, John Hayungs, operate 640- acres and with two hired hands are tending 250 acres of corn. They _are- turning out crops economically as well as keeping- the premises up. We find that plans are general over the county for attending the Fourth of July celebration at Algona. The folks will find the fair grounds an ideal place to picnic, and there will be something doing every minute. A big day of celebration will cost less at Algona than 'at most any other, place. Come to Algona and spend the day and. evening. The thermometer outside the door in a,sunny spot held at 113 above zjaro for several hours Sunday, morning. Then as the sun got around to leave it in the shade, at about 11, it began to go down, and at noon registered 102, this, in the shade. Bad enough for.a healthy man to be out in such hot weather.

Preparations had been made an-.l construction started on a new poultry house and machine shed, 26x40, to replace one destroyed'on the Albert Fritz farm in the storm of two weeks ago, when we came along last Thursday. The farm, which is north of Wesley, is occupied'by a son William. Mrs. Fritz lost 65 young and some old chickens in the storm, and two brooder houses were reduced to kindling wood. The large barn was moved three inches on its foundation. A feature of the story is that a heavy tractor was overturned, while a hayrack along' side was undisturbed. Fritz buildings were The wrecked insured, and put through their wealthy bet money on drunken sailor. paces, and the em like a Must those be awful for sick folks or In poor health. Herman. Carlson, north of Wesley, was one of "the farmers who had horses, overheated last week. Caring for the animals night and day, Herman himself found the weather getting the : best of him; accordingly he was: compelled to recuperate for a while under the trees in his dooryard. Mr. Carlson is a hard worker and we doubt that he knows how to take a vacation and rest up Earl Trulson, of Britt, had a sawing outfit at work at J. R.

IN THE MEANTIME, while they spend perhaps thousands on the training of the frogs and perhaps lose other thousands betting, on their favorites, these self-same wealthy folks cut the wages of their employes in their factories or their places of business, and though the employes may half starve, who cares, so long as the frogs Jump well? Yep, times are hard for those birds. If they lose a few dollars a day out of their huge incomes, times are just terrible! But it their employes lose a couple of days a week, or the entire week, out of their Jobs, they are expected to get along. The frog- jumplng fans don't Intend to let a Httle thing like a Jobless man and his family interfere with their maintaining frog-Jumping t$OM. Yes, surely, times are hard! o—o , ONE OF THESE fine days JOT print a regular sermon «w. r» ^ lng to p f.° reader* that a »a* <*nt and » Christian at fe, wopd away from ;the saw. This is built something like a straw stack-,! er on a grain separator. The blocks of wood fall from the buzz saw onto the conveyor and are elevated to the wood pile. This not only saves the work of one man, but eliminates one of the most dangerous jobs around a wood-sawing optfit, Mr, and Mrs. C. B. Sweet are operating a hamburger sandwich stand and, soft drink counter at the oil station they recently opened at Sexton. The place has a good location alongside the No. 18 highway and has been doing- considerable business, Mr. Sweet formerly operated the repair department 'at th Klamp Auto company garage a 1 Algona,. The couple, who have five, children have erected living quarters alongside the station and shop, They h'a.ve a neat place of business. Mr. and Mrs- P- A.

Nattrass, manager of the Morningside college stock farm formerly the McPherson : farm, north of Wesley, hod three men busy till recently, and there is a great change apparent in the premises. . The old tangle of ( willow hedge has been cleaned out, the door yard around the house graded and fenced, 'and a lawn . utarted. Forty-two fruit trees, 1» walnut trees, and various other trees as well as shrubs have been set out/ Evergreens are to be set out later. Mr. Nattrass has had much experience in tre.e and shrub planting, having set out some 7000 altogether for the college before ^e came to Wesley. He was doing the farm work alone when we called weeks ago, and is working hard. Some farm labor is getting as low as $1.50 a day in Kossuth right in harvest time, and this'applies to married men who rent a' home 1 in town and drive to and from work. At, Wesley we even heard recently that some labor had been obtained as'low as 75c a day. Some single men havei worked for board only rather than be unemployed. These seem to be times when everything 1^ topsy-turvy. People able to do something others caimdt do or have found too disagreeable earn large wages, while ptheis able only to do everyday jobs, or who have only the everyday things to sell, are up against, the competition of- all the' •• '•*'" - win not as now. received. G. H. SnJier, who has worked on farms summers, and auctioneered winters around Wesley for some years, is now farming the Guftt Carlson 1GO acres where William M. Larsen had operated. Mr. Saiier has been considerable of a traveler, having toured all but six states in this country and visited many provinces of Canada, as well as Euro pean countries, Hawaii, Australia, New Zealand, etc. A daughter accompanied the writer the day we called, and Mr. sailer, put his.police dog through a repertoire of tricks Cor our entertainment. The dog would come and shake hands with isa.ch of us, roll over, play, dead, speak for food, balance food on his nose, toss it in the air, and then catch it. Mr. Saiier said the dog would have performed better if not so close to mealtime, as he h just satisfied his appetite. Crops on the farm look good. Elmer Gib; son is plowing corn for Mr. Sailer, • Tactful A policeman at a busy corner held up a large car for nearly four minutes when there was no need. The driver.of the car, a middle- aged woman, was' indignant. "Good gracious me, officer!" she cried. "Do you realize i that you have delayed me unnecessarily for four minutes? I want to know nfr once, why you held me up, otherwise I'll report you 1" , . The policeman had an Immediate answer. "I beg your pardon, uindara," he said politely, "but at first thought you were too young to drive a car," world.-.:Labor, however, long remain as cheap Doubtless the pendulum will swing- again before long and tlien men who hire labor at starvation wages today may have to pay much higher prices, The Alethean" 4-H club of Union township gave a play at the Good Hope church Friday night that was well received. and well attended. Some 30 auto loads of people at tended, and a number expressed the opinion that the show was better than they had seen in city theaters- The girls deserve great credit for their work in preparation. The hpt weather made eytra work for them at home, and practice had to be arranged at points to accommodate players who gathered night and day from all parts of the township living five to ten miles apart. • One of the gh'1% even stayed up with sick horse tJU 2 o'clock the night the pjay, keeping the horse's Currying Favor From an old French allegory o: the Fourteenth century we have in herlted the expression, "to curry favor," writes Elizabeth Hawes Ryland In the Boston Transcript The star character of this old fable was a chestnut or- fawn-colore horse called "Favel." .
