The postoffice and four business places at Penton were entered by burglars late 'Friday night or early 'Saturday morning, and the burglars took away nearly $150 In cash and a quantity of merchandise. Entrance was gained by breaking windows or doors. At the postoffice the combination dial on the safe was knocked off, which let the combination be worked. The burglars were rewarded with some $40 In change and a quantity of stampg. They must have been inexperienced, however, for federal laws on burglary of postof- fices is severe and federal officers are relentless in tracing down perpetrators of such crime. $100 Taken from Garage Safe. The' safe at the Henry Huskamp garage was opened in the same manner, and approximately $100 in change and currency was obtained. At the Newel hardware store the burglars stole a 12-gauge Remington pump shotgun, a .410 single- shot Stevens shotgun, two alarm clocks, 12 cheap watches, and some silverware. An attempt to open the safe failed. At the 'Farmers Elevator office an ; attempt to open the safe also failed and nothing was secured by the burglars. The Weisbrod garage was entered,, the gas pump lock broken, and gasoline stolen. No clues were available, but Sheriff Hovey ie being assisted by a .postoff.ice inspector who has reported the burglary to the postoffice department. Three Entered at Bancroft. The Droessler meat market and the Hlltz cafe, Bancroft, were burglarized Saturday night. The burglars got small change from the cash register at the cafe, the exact amount not known. There was some phange in the register at the meat market, but It was untouched, and it is believed the burglar or burglars were frightened away. A bulk station operated by the Standard Oil Co. was broken Into the same night, but nothing was taken. It is reported that a slot' machine was stolen at one of the places and was broken up for money. The rumor -cannot be confirmed because operation of such machines Is not legal and no one will give the facts. It is believed that the .burglaries were the work of "home talent."

A snake show which exhibited at Titonka Monday has had a run of hard luck this week. To begin with, the 1 manager and owner, Theodore Vining, suffered a broken leg Monday evening when he fell out of his ticket box. He was taken to Dr. Pierre iSartor, Titonka, where the bone was set and was then brought to the Kossuth hospital. Secondly, County Attorney G. D. Shumway attached the show to offset doctor and hospital bills estimated at $276. Mrs. Vining, traveling with the show, said ehe had only $4 after paying all' bills, and she had two children.with her. 'E. L. Knight, also with the show, who gave his address as Fort Dodge, entered the hospital Tuesday for medical treatment. A third man with the show had only 35 cents left, and he owned the snakes, which he brought to Algona with him. He was unable to get lodging and so slept in a swing on the porch of the hospital, with his two snakes in a box beside him. Yesterday notice to release the property was filed In the district court clerk's, office by Mrs. Vining, who wants to continue with the show for fear it would lose a contract with a carnival company. The attachment held up a 1929 Ford sedan, a four-wheel trailer, two tents, a trunk and contents,' ; a bed, a,gas stove,..five chairs, table, cooking utensils, and. dishes. The notice for release claimed the-goods were being used to make a living and could not toe attached. •Mrs. Vinlng's reply to the suit filed against them stated that the family home is at Waterloo, and she asked change of venue to Blackhawk county.

Law Firm Says It Was Libel In a communication last week by B. <F. McFarland submitted for publication to ithe Advance and other papers Senator Patterson was -accused of confessing "peculations." This word means "embezzlement" • and constitutes libel. The Advance and other papers declined to print it without change. The Advance wrote a courteous letter to Mr. McFarland advising him of the libel and offer- Ing to print the communication if the llbelous •Vord was changed to something not libelous. Mr. McFarland was away and no reply was received in time for publication. To confirm the Advance's opinion the question was submitted .to Van Ness & Stillman, Algona practicing lawyers, for professional briefing and opinion. The reply, .which anyone may see on application, consists of three sheets of closely typed typewriting and ; is too long.to print, besides being mostly too technical for the comprehension of laymen. The following sentence is enough to show that it confirms the Advance's opinion: . "Publication of the phrase. 'I had no Idea that I could goad him Patterson into confessing his peculations,' which is the equivalent of saying 'confessing his embezzlements,' is llbelous per se." The Latin term "per se" means "in itself" and in law describes a variety of libel In which the coUrt must Instruct the jury to return a verdict for the. llbeiee ' without proof of actual damages and merely on proof of publication, of the libel when the libelor cannot sustain It with due proof.
