A corisln of Schmidt named Boss, who lives at Charles City, attempt- cd to sell a shotgun there Tuesday. Officers there had been advised ol the Algonn burglary, and they questioned Uoss, who Implicated Schmidt. The Information was telephoned to Algona. Shelff Hovey and Marshal Green drove to Charles City yesterday afternoon for Ross. The Kohlhaas hardware store was broken into Sunday evening at 9 o'clock, and four guns and $14 in cash were taken. Entrance was .gained .through a coal window at the rear of 'the building, where the burglars pried open a latch. They also broke a latch on a door leading to the first floor. The intruders pulled a light switch, which turned off night lights and window display lights. Two shotguns, a 38 Winchester 12- sauge repeater and a '$12 Stevens new style shammer double-barrelled shotgun, were taken fom the window. Two rifles, $16.50 and a $15' Winchester repeater, respectively, were taken from a gun rack in the front of the store room. Tags were taken off other guns, but the burglars took away only the best ones. The cash was taken from the cash register. All. keys on—the-; register- were punched,. which showed that the burglars were probably local talent who knew little about cash registers. No 'attempt was made to open a nearby safe. The total lass to Mr. Kohlhaas, Huekers ot two counties will meet for an annual Humboldt-Kossuth corn-husking contest at the C. R. Schoby farm, five miles south of Algona on primary No. 169, next Wednesday. Drawing of • territory and wagons will take place at 9 a. m. Rules will be announced and instructions given to contestants and officials by W. E. Drip, of Wallace's Farmer, and the starting gun will be fired at '9:30. The Algona Community club .will furnish prizes, and business men of Kossuth and Humboldt counties will serve as officials. Judges announced by M. J. Pool, chairman of the Algona Community club, are J. A. Raney, W. E.' McDonald, and Albert Ogren. Pre-contest discussions on how fast is a fast husker will be settled in this contest. Interest in the two counties indicates that the crowd that will be on hand to see the corn derby will equal or exceed the attendance of previous years. The contest Is limited to 15 entries, owing to the time necessary to check results. The entry card was -more than filled soon after the announce- ment of the contest, last week, with ten men from Humboldt and seven from- Kossuth.

TAXES SLUMP TO 77 PER GENT PAID UP TO OCTOBER 1 The trend of the times,can be jseen in a report from County Treasurei Kruse's office that only 77 per cent of the taxes had been paid up to October 1, whereas 85 per cent had been paid up to the same time last year, and 92 per cent the year before. According to a report from Palo Alto county only 60 per cent of the taxes have been paid so far this year. larger convention; Qlrfes, , Miss Mastersons Sena Tja- German township; Helen Wesley; Hldle Berg, Swea and Ada Schweitert, Port" ' _ Kollasch and Rae Koestler, urt Lively League, and their ,rj ynle Hanna, were recog- 1 "s srirle made up, the team at 4-H Achievement day to >nt Kossuth at the state fair. t r 8 Won "net in their class and 10 the state 4-H ' convention who carried no burglar insurance, was $86.

Local police had no clues yesterday. Entrance was gained through the front door, which was pushed open, the latch being broken. BURGLARS ENTER H, S.JTEAL $17 The Algona high school safe was broken into and robbed Tuesday night, following production of the •home talent play "Henry's Wedding," It Is thought that the robbers remained Jn the building after everyone else had gone, and then gained entrance to the superintendent's office by removing the wood around a wln- dow pane in out the glass. the door and taking The glass stuck, and of the Irvlngtpn club, was introduced as neaith champion'this year.

Tools were then secured from the janitor's quarters in the basement, arid 'the burglars attempted to enter the safe through the wall at the north end. Part of the plaster was knocked off with crude instruments, but the work there was given up. The combination on the safe door was then broken off to gain entrance. Air that was secured was $17 in change, and the burglars were probably disappointed, having supposed, no doubt, that the receipts from the play would be left there. Papers were scattered about the Delinquent tax lists will be •than ever before this year. —Mr. .,.Kr.usft._a.teo ^reports, that Kossuth's tax cdllec'tions last year totaled more than .$1,300,000.' ^Mo're than a million was collected on lands, more than $220,000 in drainage assessments, and more than $100,000 on automobile licenses. In many tax districts more than half of the revenue is used to finance the schools. No money is collected by the county treasurer for federal use, and only 10,3 mills le collected for the state. ' ., The only federal taxes paid in this county arte of an internal revenue character, such as a' tobacco tax, a new one-cent gasoline tax, a tax on cosmetics, and excise taxes on a'few other things of a semi-luxury nature. The poet office increases imposed last summer are also a gource of revenue, and of .course everybody Indirectly pays tariff taxes. Another interesting feature .of the •times is that In 1926 a total of f 594,534.86 in tax receipts was collected by the banks of the county, whereas this year only $159,87'8.66 has been collected'by the banks up to date.

On the basis of votes the farmer- labor ticket received third place, andf the socialist ticket fourth position. In the 1928 election the farmer-Ia- borites polled 3,088 votes in the state, and .the socialists 2,'960, in the presidential race.
