The two local officers have spent most of their time for two weeks on the case. 'Sufficient evidence has not been found to fasten the crime on the three men arrested on suspicion, but (though direct evidence is lacking the sheriff and county attorney have not given up hope of finding it before the time the men have to be released next week Wednesday.

Mexicans Quarrel and One Gets Bad Cut in the Hand Two Mexicans near Ledyard got drunk Friday evening, and an argument ended in a fight. One attacked the other with a knife and No. 2's right hand was so severely cut that a pistol clutched in the hand could not be fired. Next morning the pair, Philip Quinones, who had the gun, and Lusino Rodrizuez, knife artist, were brour'ut before Justice Danson, charged with drunkenness. Following trial the men were both found guilty and were fined $10 and costs of $€.60 each or five days in Jail.

Mr. Roggensack and Mr. White were fraternity brethren at Drake university. cigarets, perhaps a box of two of cigars, and pop were taken. (Mr. Behlmer's desk suffered most damage. Drawers were opened in search of Saturday's receipts, but nothing had been left. The fact that Mr, Behlmer has usually kept extra change in bis desk gives rise to a suspicion that the introducers were local men who. knew of the custom. (Frank Vayette, who sleeps in tine Bunkofske barber shop at the rear of the building, hardly ten feet from the door where the glass was broken, heard the crash and got up, •thinking the chimney of the building had burned out. The fact that he was up was apparently discovered by the .burglars, wfoo left immediately. Vayette keeps the fire in the shop during the night and does odd jobs elsewhere.

F. iRahm, now cashier in the state auditor's office. Then he 'was a popular assistant cashier of the County Savings bank till the bank closed, later of the Kossuth County State bank till that bank also closed. He is a son of Mr. and Mrs. Philip Schemel, who live retired here. Editor W. F. Miller, of the <Livermore Gazette, who does not ecat- er compliments promiscuously, hue speaks of the transfer: "E. A. Schemel leaves today to take charge of a bank at Geneva, and has been replaced here "by F. J. Hamm, of (Hampton. It is a ;reat disappointment to those most interested to have Mr. Schemel transferred. Mr. Hamm will of course ably fill his place, but it takes some time for a stranger .-to get acquainted,with new conditions The transfer is, of course, a surprise to both parties, and is unexplainable except that it w the way of politics.' "Mr. Schemel made so many friends here that he has been considered as one of the community, and it was even hoped that matters would work out that would make him a permanent resident here." It may be added that Mr. Schemel was so well thought of at Livermore that if capital had been available it is likely that a new bank would have been organized there with him in charge. risen above $1,200,000, and is on the way to a million and a quarter. It is evident that many owners of loanable corn (had been withholding action to see whether market prices would rise albove the loan limit and that they did not apply for loans till the time limil was about to become effective. Now that the time limit has been extended Dhrough March, there is speculation on whether owners tf- loanable corn will repeat the waiting performance and come in with a last minute March-end rush to run the county loans total up to a million and a half or (better.
