Welp. Bancroft, Sept. 12—Two Kossuth babies wandered away and caused frantic •searches by parents, neighbors, and others, one on Saturday night, the other Sunday. (Ben Lampe, southeast of croft, and two sons went to a field Saturday afternoon at 5 p. in. to get the cows and look for a lost calf. The baby son, Leonard, who will foe 3 in November, started to follow, but they soon lost sight of him and thought he had turned back to the house. The cows were driven up and the milking had begun, when at 5:45 the baby: was ^missed. .The,,-' hunted him in vain for an hour, then called neighbors. Child Found Asleep. A creek near 'the house was waded by searchers without result. It grew dark while 20 members of the family and neighbors continued the hunt with lanterns and flashlights. (Nearby fields were searched intensively, and. finally John vBrink, carrying a flashlight, came upon the child in a plowed field.on the north side of the farm. This was. at 9:16. Tired out, the baby had curled .up on the ground and gone to sleep. He wore a dark shirt, a pair of overalls, and was barefooted,- bareheaded, and very. cold. Father Is Overcome. The searchers had been over the field earlier in the evening without finding the child, and it is thought that he must still have been traveling for some time after the search began. • Mr. Brink awakened the baby, and .he was carried to the house, where with what Joy and relief he- was greeted may be imagined; Exhausted, Mr. Lampe dropped with the reaction. When food was offered the baby refused, saying he was too tired- to eat. The baby seemed slightly sick next morning, but is all right again noyr. Another Baby Lost -.

Members of the committee cannot personally take applications, but npust refer all applicants to the reemployment office for registration. This means that an applicant cannot go to a memlber of the commit- tse, but must go to the office.

Jobs will be gjiven only to qualified unemployed workers who are proven residents of the county in which the work is i> be done. Unemployed workers will not be -taken from one county t) another, except in case there are not enough unemployed-workers in a county to do the work. The county reemployment offices may register only workers who are unemployed, and cannot register any person who has a full-time job.

There was a markedly betted feeling at this year's county fal* than in years past. Perhaps thi» was in large part due to the fact thait all who bought tickets in th« afternoon could return in the evening without additional charge. In past years pass-out check* were good only till 6 p. m., but thi« year they were good all- evening* This made it impossible accurately to estimate evening crowds, for practically all who attended in. th« afternoons came back. > The fact that children under'id were admitted free, also thai charges were reduced all along, th« line, likewise proved popular* though it did not add particularly to the association's bank balance* Expense Not Yet Totaled. Not all bills had been received bf Secretary E. <L. Vincent, up to yes» terday, and it will not be definitely known till later whether the fair paid out. It is believed,' however, that state and county aid will let this year's fair "break even," 'which will be a record for these times. The midway this year was crowd* ed with all kinds of concessions, in* eluding .the Zimdar carnival company. Three concessions operating as gambling Joints were dosed up, and a "girl" Show was closed .after a warning from Sheriff Dahlhauser. . . ^ Grand Stand Filled. ..tU The two big days we're Thursday and Friday. There seems to be •> definite" shift to these two day» from the former' custom, which, made Wednesday and Thursday the) big days. Auto races and other attractions on Friday are believed responsible. . ^ :..• The-new grandstand was practically filled several times. This improvement is probably the most popular, of any the management has ever made. 'The weather waa practically ideal for fair purposes; Secretary 'Leo C.Dailey, of the Clay county fair,' attended one day and claimed that his mission was to find out how Secretary Vincent fixed up things with the weather man. The common expression was that in most ways this was the best fair the county has ever had. No complaints were' heard; 'everybody seemed more than satisfied. Many Commercial Exhibits. There were perhaps more corn* mercial exhibits in Floral hall than ever before. The following Algona firms were represented: Kohlhaas & Spilles, Poster Furniture, Advance, Upper Des Moines.
