Nick Thilges, two miles southwest of Whittemore, was attacked Saturday morning at 8:30 by homicidal bandit, Who struck the farmer over the head with the butt of a gun in an attempt to knock him out. Mr. Thilges, though suffering from the severe blow in the temple, succeeded in fighting the man off, ran to the house, with the bandit in pursuit, and called to his wife to get his shotgun. He called in German, which evidently was known to the bandit, for he turned ran into a corn field, and escaped Farmer Grabs Gunman's Wrist. The attack came as Mr. Thilges stepped into the cow barn to release the cattle. As he entered the barn the bandit, in hiding, commanded him to throw up his hands enforcing the command by pointinf his revolver. Mr. Thilges grabbe< the fellow's wrist, and in the ensuing scuffle he received the se vere blow on the head. Mr. Thilges was dazed, and the bandit dragged him out the door to the north side of the barn behind i wlo, where he again beat him ove the head with his gun. The bandit was, however, unable to knock Thilges completely out •>nd 'so marched him toward the house, placing both hands on the victim's shoulders. Mrs. Thilge saw them coming, and, seeing the blood on her husband's face, rush cd outside. The .bandit - orderet 'ier back in the house, but Mr Thilges, in German, told her to ge the gun. It was then that the assailan wheeled and ran off through a cornfield north of the buildings. Telephone Wire is Cut. The fellow had obtained a 20-ft extension ladder, and previous t the attack had cut a telephone wir a mile east of the farm which lee to the Thilges house. It is believed that the man thought Mr. Thilges had a larg Herring Testimony Given Before the Grand Jurors at the Hearing Tuesday I have been acquainted with James Canada about a year I was informed that D. H. Goeders, who had been appointed by my predecessor as a member of the fish and game commission, was in fact a republican. I did not know anything about Canada coming to Algona to get the poll books. The first that I knew or was informed that he had done so was in May or June, 1933, when he and Frank Comfort, and perhaps Walter Maley, were in my reception room at the statehouse, and Comfort had a package under his arm, which he said were poll books, and that they showed that Goeders was a republican, and that he gas going to have them photographed at the state bureau of iuvestigation. I told him, "All right." The poll books were not opened, and they .never have been opened m my presence. If they were changed by anyone I know nothing about it. I think that after the photographs were taken they were delivered to the attorney general's office. I never saw them until I sent for them to show to J. N. Darling, a member of the commission. At that time I did not notice any evidence on the photograph of a change having been made on the poll books. Later, when I heard that it was claimed the poll books had been Changed, I looked at the photograph more closely and could see a blur in the democratic column opposite the Goeders name. I had never promised Canada any appointment. Doctor Colby, of Forest City, had been recommended to me by different people-for appointment to the commission to succeed Goeders. Doctor Colby had also been recommended to me to:, succeed the member from Council Bluffs, whose name I do not recall,.but I reappointed the Council Bluffs man at the request of the other members of the commission. was merely swung 1 burglars. open the safe the-burglars took noney box, Which was locked, '"'er this was found behind a posts near the railroad Evidently the burglars had rthe box to the track, used the Burglars.

The band was praised by the directors, and on learning that capes were needed to make an A-l appearance the board decided to help. The money was appropriated from a school fund set up some years ago by receipts from a home talent show for the purchase of a grand piano. The receipts were not sufficient to buy the piano, and another show was to have been given, : but the depression caused the proj- j ect to be dropped. I The 'board also contracted with the Stanberry Amplifying System, Fort Dodge, to bring Santa Claus, his house, and other apparatus 'here Wednesday, December 6.

P, Harrington having been removed by death, the Kossuth County Bar Association now presents these resolutions pursuant to a desire to express in permanent form its sorrow for the loss that has fallen upon this court, the commvuiity, and the Sate of Iowa, also its estimate of the man who, alter his many years of service, has taken his d --parture from - among us. We do, therefore, resolve that the life of T. P. Harrington had for many years been lived in constant service to this com- wumly and his state. He was frank, fearless, sympathetic and .true. As a friend he was warm, staunch, and magnanimous; as a lawyer he attained high rank; as a legislator his able service was productive of enactments most calculated to advance the best interests of his community. His home life was that of an ideal American. The Bar of Kossuth county will ever cherish., his memory and take pride in the record he made. His life and attainment are an inspiration and example to all who may follow. In his death our professi«n has lost an example of a life well spent and ardently devoted to its clwsen work, and we have lost a friend. • Be it further resolved tha,t a copy, of these resolution^ b# spread on the records of the district court of Kossuth county, tfeat a copy be furnished the family of thg deceased, pid flai cop- ieg be furnished to the locaj papsrs.
