Whole Democratic County Ticket Wins •^ ^H «K m M ^^ _ ' ~^^^T tf*^^^^mn^***m M^—^^^—__^^•"•"•••^^^•^^••••••••__ J ^^^^^_^____ . ._ ^^fc^^^ REPUBLICANS EVEN LOSE THE CORONERSHIP Not One Courthouse Job Saved to Grand Old Party. The miracle of miracles happened Tuesday. Every democratic candidate for county office was elected. It never happened before, and the democrats are fairly intoxicated with joy. No one blames them. The result was almost wholly unexpected. Maybe some candidates on both skies had a suspicion that there might be a landslide, tyut none felt safe in predictions to that effect. The voters didn't stop even on coroner, a non-salaried office involving only a few unimportant fees They elected Dr. R. A. Evans, Algona, over Coroner L. M. Merritt by a vote of 4G72 to 42G9. Bahlliaiiscr Leads Ticket. High man on the democratic ticket was Carl Dahlhauser, Bancroft marshal, who got 5197 votes for sheriff aganist 4301 for E. L. Harris, present deputy. At that Harris was not low man on his ticket. Orton, district court clerk, hit hard by the alleged disclosures of the county checkers, got low place on the county republican ticket. Nevertheless he topped 4,000 votes. Butler and Duffy, candidates for auditor and 'treasurer respectively, both hailing from Whittemore, won against the fact that they were least known of the democratic nominees for courthouse offices. Both, besides, had to defeat widely known and popular candidates on the re- publican'ticket. •-...-.. .-.-.< Ida 'Peterson's defeat for county recorder was among the least expected results of the election, this because she won by a big margin in the republican primary after only a month's campaign. First Male Recorder In Tears. The change in the recordershlp brings a man into the office for the first time in many years. Maurice McMahon had to defeat an Immensely popular candidate for county attorney in the person of H. W. Miller. At that, McMahon's margin was more than 900 votes, largest majority of all. Generally speaking, Algona went republican, 'but outlying precincts plunked votes by the score in the democratic basket. It was, however, mainly Garfield, Greenwood, Prairie, Ramsey, Sherman, Riverdale, Wesley, and Whittemore which spilled the beans for the republicans. The votes of four to one against the republican candidates In Greenwood and Whittemore particularly were sockdologers which delivered fatal blows below the vest. ' Chubb carried 20 precincts, a ma- jority'of the county's 3C, but still failed to win.. Kruse carried 21.; Orton carried 12 and halved one with McBvoy; Harris carried 18; Miss Peterson, IS; Miller, 17.

Strong .winds blew wet, etlcky snow In blizzard fashion, and drifted it on many roads. Though it was election day recbrd votes in many rural precincts proved that' desire to vote was greater than the efforts of the weather .man to keep' votes'at home. Nevertheless, the- weather pro~bably kept many from the; polls. Algona has now had a total of eight inches of snow already this season. The fall Tuesday amounted to a .77 inch rainfall, which, with a 46 fall Friday, made 1:23 inches so far this, month? 'Contrasted with the Friday fall was a warm Saturday- and Sunday, when many .took advantage of fine weather to be outdoors. A 'large number of players were on the local golf links, The official temperature record follows: High Low Stores to Close. •A-lgona stores will, for the -most part, be closed all day tomorrow in observance of Armistice day.

Next week "Wednesday the annual barrage against the pheasants opens In 21 north Iowa counties. Next day the birds will have a breathing spell, but the following Friday and Saturday will again be open. One important limitation to be observed by hunters is that each of the three days is open in the afternoon only. This Is an innovation from preceding years, when the whole day was open. This year the open hours begin at 12 noon on each day, and close at sunset. The bag limit has also been changed. Three birds ore allowed, of wtiich only one can be a hen. The season is open on Mongolian, English, Chinese, and the common ringneck pheasants. llules Aid riioasants. In opening the season in the afternoon only the state fish and game commission toad only the pheasants in mind. With afternoon shooting only, it is anticipated that there will be fewer crippled pheasants to crawl away and die. Experience has shown that dim morning light has been responsible for poor shooting and consequent crippling of birds which escape. Another thought was possibly in mind: in preceding years most of the birds have been killed in the early morning, and it was comparatively difficult to get at them in the afternoon. • In the morning the birds leave their nesting places . for the cornfields, and hunters could therefore lay in wait beside nesting places and bag them as they left.

This calls for more work on; the part -of the hunter and also gives' the pheasants a better chance :o make a getaway. Game Xot Numerous. Pheasants are not especilly numerous in many of the open counties this year, and the fish and game commission probably believes the number' killed will be lessened by eliminating morning shooting. Though/only one hen pheasant is allowed in : a, bag of three, all three may -be cocks. The allowance of on© hen was .probably made because many hunters sh,oot before determining whether the prey is, cock or hen. In former years, 'when cocks only were allowed In the bag, killed nens were, let rot where they fell. The new-rule requires every hunter to call l)ls shot when, he has killed a hen. It also limits an easy thing in bag limit. tew Veal sportsmen will object to the provision protecting hens, for every hen killed means fewer pheasants in the following year. HABITUAL DRUNKENNESS IS .

Hovey was called to Sexton Friday by a traveling man who reported an empty car standing in the middle of the paving two miles east of the village. Upon investigation the sheriff found a man In the car who acted queerly. Mr. Hovey thought he was suffering from a lapse of memory. The man was brought to Algona, and the sheriff gave htm a room at the Dehnert hotel, and also provided lunch. Hovey then traced the automobile license, and found that the stranger was from Ellendale, Steele county, Minn. The sheriff let the fellow go Saturday morning, first telling him the way back to his home. On Sunday, however he was reported stopped again at a point a half mile west of Sexton. Mr. Hovey went after him again and brought him back to Alona. On calling the sheriff at Owatonna, Minn., Mr. Hovey found that officers there had been hunting for the man by radio and otherwise, and that relatives would come for him. and he is married and has four children. He was taken home Monday. At Sexton Sunday he stopped near the Nehring filling station in the middle of the paving,'apparently out of gas. He went into the station, filched some peanuts there, and .vent back to his car to eat them. Then he went to the Taylor,home near r by, located a barrel of gasoline and -started to help himself. Mr. Taylor was warned-and drove him away, after which Sexton -men pushed his car down the road and told'him to "beat it," which, however, he did not do.
