Delmar MoFadden, Algona, was aroled, after a five-year sentence Anamosa, imposed by Judge P. Davidson at Emmets/burg Mony, following a plea of guilty to rand larceny in connection with, recent kidnaping and liquor theft at a Palo Alto farm. MoFadden was paroled to District Court Clerk MdEvoy during kood behavior. It is believed that jie was not an active participant in lie kidnaping of the Daniel Sibrel housekeeper and the three Sibrel bhildren. Harold Speraw, arrested with .rtcFadden as an accomplice of one pr two men in the kidnaping, is ptill in Jail at Emmetsburg. Other arg'es have been filed 'against him besides kidnaping. Frank Kesler Arrested. Monday Frank ;Kesler,' Webster was arraigned on charges of dnaping and larceny as one of principals. Victor Howton, also Webster City, is believed to be another principal in the crime. Howton, locally known -as' "Tex," has been identified as one of the aen, but is now in Jail at Fort Dodge on a charge of attempted nurder in connection with "the ^hooting of Glenn Kitley, Fort Dodge, -in an argument the nature which -has not been disclosed here. Howton is being left at Fort dge to answer the murder->at- jtempt charges, /but if he is freed ! will be arrested and taken to imeteburg to answer charges in connection with, the Sibrel case. Federal Action Possible. If the kidnaping charge is press- there is a possibility that the ases may all (be transferred to (federal court under provisions of the Lindbergh federal kidnaping paw. A federal secret service man has worked with local officers and state agents on the cases. It is believed that one member of the gang is still at large, for Sibrel's housekeeper, father, and the bhildren, the victims, ibelieve that five men were implicated. According to local stories, the wo _ Algonians were more or less pictims of circumstances. Speraw, is reported, called McFadden pom a movie the night of the prime to drive to the Sibrel plao for liquor, Details of Plot McFadden drove his own car, am Rear Cylinder the boys met the fhree other men, who proposed tha boys buy liquor, at Sibrel's, anc ee whether Sibrel or other men vere there. If the coast was dear, the five ien were to hijack all the liquo. also take any money or other ablee they might find. It was believed that Sibrel would pep his mouth shut rather than Appeal to the law and incriminate pimself. Bootlegger Angered. There were no men at Sibrel's r.d the plan was carried out.

If a comparison of farm taxes on quarter sections picked at random, one in each df the county's 28 townships, is representative, there is a cut of nearly 17 per cent in this year's .taxes under last year's. Reduction has still a long way to go, however, if taxes are to return to the figures for 1914, 20 years ago. Taking the same quarter sections, there has been a boost of 56 per cent as compared with this year's taxes. The totals for ttie i28 sections compared were: Payalble in 1934 '$3567.61 Payable in 1933 4286.90 'Paid in 1914 -2284.28 Farms Are Listed.

Mrs. Wallace took a .Des Moines woman to Washington as cook, and when Miss Schenck asked for recipes for some of the things the Wallaces eat, Mrs. Wallace took her to the kitchen, where the cook was preparing a butterscotch pie.

Since she went to Washington she has had to "do as the Romans do" by serving from platters and serving diahee, from the the only not on plates brought kitchen.

Of the making of corn loans in Kossuth there is as yet no end, though some slackening in demand is noticeable, due in part to the fact that most of the available corn has now been sealed and in part to the fact that farmers can now sell on the market at prices near the loan figure. Up to Saturday night more than a million and a half bushels had been sealed, and the loans total exceeded $700,000. •Since Saturday "night and up to Tuesday night 91,378 more (bushels had been sealed for amounts aggregating $41,120.

I Reclamation of Union Slough aft a game refuge now rests witbt farmers owning the land said H*. M. Smith, county engineer, in * talk before the Rotary club Monday. He spoke on the possibility of the federal government's reconverting the slough to its original condition as a migratory fowl ref»- uge. Federal agents inspected th«i project last week, and not only ap» proved plans, but increased tin* proposed acreage from 1,600 to* 3,500. The slough, which was drained i«t 1913, will be a lake ten miles Ion* and a half mile wide from a few miles from Burt almost to Lakota, if plans are carried out. Water will be collected from the Buffalo Creek,_which will (be dammed .to* make its waters flow into tha slough except in flood times, .when a dam spillway will let the water- resume its ordinary flow into tBuk' Des Moines river. Federaf Project Contemplated. President Roosevelt's recently announced program to buy marginal lands and retire them fromt. cultivation includes game reserves like this. The federal agents her« last week indicated that this project would be pushed through a* fast as possbile. The only "fly in the ointment,* Mr. Smith says, is the possibility that owners of the land will demand prices so high as to prevent government purchase.

However, the land could be condemned at a reasonable price fixed by a condemnation fboard. Plans Are Long-Standing. Plans for repossessing the landt as a game reserve originated three* years ago, when the territory was mapped out and plans for the project were sent to the government. Nothing was done, though the slough has been inspected several times by both state and federal agents. New Deal plans to take marginal lands out of production have now revived interest. A number of owners of the land have already indicated willingness to take whatever the government will pay, and it is expected that the rest of the owners will also cooperate. The land is now used for pasture. Some of it is peat land, but not of a quality for use commercially. "Ding" is Interested.

Kossuth was credited with 257 at work, of whom 242 were receiving 60c an hour, the other 15 70c as supervisors. In a week the total hours of work amounted to 7687, and the pay roll was $39*55.13.

Drain Ditch Filling Up. Mr. Smith added that much of the land will again toe worthies* for farming in a few years anyway, for the drainage ditch is now filling and is only four feet deep. whereas it was 12 feet deep wnej* made. Thus if the owners fail ta sell the land to the government they will be faced in a few years with the problem of redrainage. In a wet year, Mr. Smitto said, tamers cannot use the land even as they are now doing. Last spring, when the snow melted so fast anct the Des Moines river overflowed. the slough had nearly three feet of water. . The cost of the reclamation proj* ect will be mostly the purchase price of the land. The cost of a dam would be small.
