Whittemore had a beautiful day and a -big crowd for a great corn show 'Saturday. Main street and the show rooms were thronged in the afternoon. The show was held in a vacant garage building, and tables were loaded with entries by contestants. In one corner of the room wiener 'sandwiches and coffee were served free. Prof. M. A. Hauser, Ames, judged the corn and spoke. County Agent Morrison spoke on the government corn-hog program. ' The executive committee of the Whittemore community club had charge of the show: Jos. Fleming, chairman; (Frank Bestenlehner, Dr. OH. tB. Woodward, L. W. Swanson, Peter Schumacher; Editor R. L. Burdine, secretary.

A review of the proposed pro;ram was presented by iR. H. Miler, chairman of the committee in charge, and several members took part in a discussion which followed. County Agent E. R. Morrison was called upon for a talk on the corn- hog benefit proposals. He said that up to the present nothing definite had been determined, all news stories being based mostly on guesses. ! The contract has not yet been approved, and no official committees have been appointed in any county in the state. Nothing defi- YOUTH EXPECTED nite can be given out now, and the Kossuth group is waiting till a contract has been approved before attempting to explain it. ; T. H.

Stores are planning decorations, and the blocks from the new Steele store to the K. C. bank building and from the Iowa State bank to the A. & P. grocery have already been signed up. Work is also being done in other blocks. The decorations will be in addition to the usual display erected by the Community club and will add to the electrical display each evening.

His condition was reported grave last night, and it was doubtful whether he could live through the night, or more than today, unless unusual circumstances permitted recovery The youth told doctors here that he was burned when a lantern he took to the barn before daylight exploded as it was kicked over by a horse. He was hitching up a wag on, he said, to start corn-picking He said he fought the fire tha started in the ibarn, and succeeded in putting it out. The youth's chest and thigh were badly burned, and he suffered Fined for 3 Hens Francis Schneider was fined $10 and costs of $5.25, and Ambrose: Jckteig $15 and costs of $5.25, in fustice Danson's court Friday. The iharge against Schneider was hunting without a license, and that against Lickteig illegal possession of three hen pheasants. Both pleaded guilty and paid their fines. The charges were filed by 'Merle Locke, special game warden from Badger. Both men are from St. Benedict.

They carried powerfu anterns and flashlights, but found no trace of the missing youth. [ Companion Was Asleep. It was thought that the accident, f any, occurred four or five miles west of Algona, but the transient who reported it was not sure, for he had gone to sleep and did not miss his companion till he awoke. The transient r remained over night in quarters provided by the city. The youth 'who disappeared is believed to have been a member of the Civilian Conservation Corps near Primgttar. :ation of the delinquent tax list would be delayed till late in De- jember, with the tax sale early in fanuary. The action was generally approved and nearly all county treasurers 'ell in with it, including Treasurer M. J. Duffy, of Kossuth county. Some treasurers, however, felt ;hat the governor had no authority ;o override the law, which provides 'or sale the first Monday in December, with two preceding publications in November. The objection was that sales not held according to law might be held invalid. Apparently the Polk county treasurer was of this opinion, for he has ignored Governor Herring's action, having begun publication last week, fixing the sale for Monday, December 2. Polk Publication Costly. Publication of the list in Polk county, which includes Des Moines, is costly. .Two years ago the Des Moines Register collected $27,000 for publication. "Last year publication was made in the Des Moines Plain Talk, a weekly newspaper which caters to legal publications at a cost of $13,000, This year publication in Plain Talk is being made at a cost under $9,000. The cost of publication is borne in the first instance by the county but the county gets the money pHIS .IS PROF. M. A. Hauser *• crop specialist in the Ames ex ension service who spoke Saturday t Whittemore's corn show. Fifty Crow Heads a Week Brought in for County Bounty County Auditor E. J. Butler reports that an average of nearly 50 crows are brought to his office every week for the lOc bounty. Only the heads of the birds are brought and other similar jobs. His mother, Mrs. Sigurd Kleven, of Jordan, Minn., and a brother came yesterday. Kleven says he does not remem- 'ber .the name of the farmer for whom he was working, explaining that he worked only two days at the place. He was still conscious yesterday, but "dope 1 used to alleviate the pain had made him groggy. The hospital reported last night that it was not known who brought the boy in. Sheriff Dahlhauser was investigating the case last night with a view to finding out Just what really happened. » Mechanical Man is Window Attraction Youth Found Later. After the foregoing story was written it was dicoVered that the young man had gone to the Mike Thill farm east of Whittemore and back when the taxes are paid, the charge of each description being added to the taxes. The lessened cost in Polk county last year is not explained ,but wa perhaps due to a'cut in the lega fee accepted by Plain Talk. The further cut this year is due in par to fewer descriptions and a fee re duction. The last legislature cu the number of publications from three to two and cut the fee from 40c to 30e. , Descriptions Number 30,000. There are some 30,000 descriptions in this year's Polk county list. This is about one-third fewer than a year ago. How much, if any, of the reduction is due to more general payment of taxes cannot be said, for the legislature cut out re- Plans for putting every unemployed man in Kossuth county tc work were formulated by the board of supervisors, the Algona city council, and the poor fund and reemployment supervisors in projects presented yesterday to the state civil works projects committee al Des Moines. The plans were submitted by County Engineer H. M. Smith, in charge of the reemployment _ii Kossuth, and he was accompaniec to Des Moines by the entire board Chas. Morris, F. J. Balgeman, W E. McDonald, Olaf Funnemark, and OP. J. Heiken; also by Chas, E Chubb, Algona city civil engineer J. W. Kelly, city light and wate plant superintendent; Mayor C.

These in eluded building of new connectin roads for short distances, particu larly in • town, cleaning of ditches culverts, etc., straightening count fencing, and other work not re quiring skilled labor. All money is to toe supplied b the' federal government. The pay is 50c an hour for unskilled labor, with a maximum working- week of 30 hours. This is expected to relieve the poor fund in every county of able-bodied laborers. Each unemployed person . must now report every month to Mr. Smith at his courthouse office in order to be retained on the unemployed list.

Alfred Jergensen, farmer north of Algona, recently brought in a male wolf, for which the county paid a bounty of $5. Young wolves bring a bounty of $2.50. At present there is no bounty on foxes, and they are becoming comparatively numerous. Many pheasant hunters 'scared them up, but not being able to tell them at a distance from dogs let them go. Farmer Bound Over for Selling Grain Bruce H. Peck, Corwith, was bound ,to the grand jury Saturday by Justice White on a charge of grand larceny of grain between April 29 and September 8.

Enough did remain on the ground most of the day to give a wintry appearance, and it was still snowing at noon.

A group from the Titonka Auxiliary will present a play, the LitHe Red Schoolhouse. The meeting is on the water tower was resumed yesterday. Spectators have been numerous, and were a bother to the workmen Monday. The accident Tuesday is viewed as a warning to sightseers to keep off the grounds. 'Steel parts for the water tank arrived some weeks ago. A large pipe which will connect the tank with the mains had to be welded together last week, as it was only riveted. ; The parts were delivered by the 'Milwaukee railroad at the city's siding at the north end of Hall street, and they had to be brought up the long hill to the site of the tank. Construction of the new water tower is a danger to four near-nby buildings, and it was considered lucky that the steel boom fell safely Tuesday. There are three houses close enough to have been crushed, and the city's new filtration building is also almost under the construction work. '. Algonians in the neighborhood will soon be annoyed with the noise of riveting the steel parts together. When the riveting begins it will be heard for miles and will be deafening in the neighborhood. It was originally planned that the tower would be finished by the first of the year. It is understood that two crews of workmen will now be used, and unless too cold weather prevents it may yet be finished on time. jobs. Only qualified and bona fide residents of the county can have jobs. The pay is in cash. Iowa Given 53^50 Jobs.

New Railroad Rates Drop Fares by Nearly One-Half open to all ex-service men and their wives, and a large attendance is expected. All railroads west of Chicago have reduced passenger fares, effective December 1. The regular rate now is 3.6 a mile, parlor and sleeping cars extra. Under the new deal rates and service will vary. The one-way regular coach rate will be 2c, This is the way most people travel by rail. People who want the privilege of using parlor and/or sleeping cars will pay 3c, and in addition must pay for such use. They pay a cent a mile just for the privilege whether they exercise the privilege pr not. That seems strange, hut presumably the extra cent is for hauling the equipment, etc, Boll Call is Success.

This was particularly true im the south end of the county, bat even in the north end, where t|M>. hunters had found the birds plenti- •• ful the first two open days, there .^ was a scarcity last week which; made it hard to get the limit. i The birds, after four days of shooting, are wary, and they get up too -far ahead of hunters for a good]/ shot. The limitation to cocks only requires that the hunter look carefully before shooting, and by the time identification has been made the birds are often out of range.
