Sheriff Dahlhauser, single-handed, nipped an attempt at jail delivery in the bud last Thursday evening, when he caught Herbert John-1 son, recently brought hero from, Missouri on a robbery charge, half in and half out of the jail. j The sheriff had attended the band concert, but took time out for a customary inspection of the business district, including the jail premises. While he was near the jail he heard a piece of iron drop. ] Window 15nrs Wrenched. This aroused the officer's suspicions, and he detoured to the rear of the Norton machine works and'; cautiously approached the jail. When he reached it he could hear men grunting with exertion as they wrenched iron bars aside enough to let them through. The sheriff hastened to the j house for a sawed-off shotgun and returned unseen by the prisoners. Then he waited for one of the men to get out far enough to be recognized. Johnson chose to emerge feet first, and the sheriff knew him by his clothing and footgear. Besides the gun, Dahlhauser had a stout stick, and he now made use of it to play a sharp and lively tattoo on Johnson's legs, at the same time ordering him back into the jail. Surprised by the stinging blows Johnson yelled like a stuck pig and scrambled back through the window. The sheriff could see another prisoner, Hal Sailer,' Wesley, running back to the cells with Johnson. Mr. Dahlhauser then entered the jail, forced Johnson and Sailer into [at sacrifice prices on account fed shortage, producers under •act now are being authorized lake unlimited purchases with- Irestrictions as to status or lo|n of the seller, lus contract signers may buy 1 from producers in another ply or state, and those who I adequate feed supplies may i from farmers who do not i sufficient feed supplies.

Knife Notched for Saw. This was the west window on the south side of the first floor. Two bars had been sawed and pulled aside. The work was done with an improvised saw made from a table knife. The jail bars are not steel, but are of comparatively soft iron. Dahlhauser said charges of attempt at jail delivery would be brought against Johnson and Sailer. Johnson has boasted to other prisoners of many criminal deeds, even claiming that he shot two men., He was brought here from Scdalia, Mo., to answer a charge of burglary of the Galbraith store. Sailer was committed for lewdness and still has some weeks of a sentence to serve. Long Beach Dances Renew Romance For The Elderly, Former Algonian Writes I!y Mrs. »lli ( . G. ]!

My aunt and I had been at this Long Beach dance only a short time, when a gentleman asked me for a waltz. Not having lived in Long Beach, and being somewhat old - fashioned about introductions, I hesitated. My aunt has lived there for some time, and since she and her husband were famous dancers when they lived at Humboldt, I urged her to dance. I gave up dancing when I married, for my husband was an old-fashioned Methodist, and I had danced but a few times since and loaned my stops would bo far ar from light, even if fantastic. Well, with the old-time music, played by a good orchestra, entrancing my ears (not jazz), I yielded, and I cannot have danced so badly after all, for he asked my name, where I lived, and whether I was a widow, explaining that he was a bachelor, and bo also asked me to meet him there the following night. I replied "All right," but in fact I went home next morning. Long Beach is considered a great place for romance among elderly people, and many matches are made there. These oldsters meet at the beach, at the dances, or in the lobbies of hotels. Ono of my friends from Algona told me she wouldn't live anywhere else just on that account! Now, must I move to Long Beach?

As reported recently, H. E. Narey, Spirit Lake lawyer, has already been touted for the place, and now it is announced that 0. H. Raleigh, late postmaster at Graettinger, will be a candidate. In a statement recently in the Estherville Daily News, Mr. Raleigh said: "For more than 30 years I have been an active republican, and while at times differing with my fellow republicans I have never found it necessary to go outside the ranks of the party to settle these differences. No one has ever accused me of being a radical or be- and though one of the original progressives in Iowa I have kept from the extremes that border on socialism. The rights of the common people have often been in Jeopardy, but not always from the conservative politician so much as from irresponsible radicalism. Both extremes should be avoided.

I have lieved in sanity at all times The Community club board voted Monday to sponsor sale of season tickets for the county fair here. A committee will be named to conduct the sale. An effort will be made to have stores close during all four afternoons of the fair. Secretary Vincent spoke briefly before the board on plans of the fair management. He said the program would be more varied and interesting than ever before, and he wished full cooperation to enable him and his associates to go ahead with confidence. Season tickets will be sold for only a dollar. Cars are admitted free as long as parking room lasts. Single admission will be 40c. Committees for the sale of season tickets in other towns and in the country will be named, and a selling campaign is planned for the week preceding the fair. o — Thermometer Tube Stolen from Bank Someone stole the glass tube from the thermometer at the Kossuth County State bank building Sunday night or Monday, and thus deprived many Algonians of the opportunity of watching the mercury's ups and downs. The tube was nearly two feet long, and the thermometer had been in place for years. The tube was not broken, or at least no broken glass was in evidence. Small straps which held it In place were bent back. H. V. Hull and J. M. Herbst, examiners in charge at the bank building, say no questions will be asked if it is returned. Plays for Eni'burg CM.

The Spencer reporter says Francis Johnson, former speaker, is also mentioned as senatorial timber. Though, according to the Reporter, he obtained a legal education, he is a farmer. If his candidacy develops it will conflict with that of Mr. Narey, since both live A. H. Avery, Clay county representative who was defeated by ex- Sen. W. J. Breakenridge the first time the latter ran, is also being mentioned. In Palo Alto and Kossuth there has as yet been no mention of candidates. The Estherville Vindicator & Republican entered the game last week Tuesday by proposing J. W, Morse, able Estherville attorney. 4 Union Organizer is Expected Here An attempt to organize an inter- craft labor union in Algona may be undertaken soon. Negotiations, though not public, may be already under way. Last week's Spencer News-Herald reported organization at Spencer and said charters had also been granted at Emmetsburg, Estherville, and Sibley. These unions are branches of the American Federation of Labor intended for towns not large enough for unions by trades. Dues are only $2 a year, half of which remains with the local union.

They had been drink ing, and residents called Deput Sheriff Casey Loss, who was ac companied by Night Marshal Van Alstyne. The men had got back into thei car, but were stopped by the offi cers. Olson was ready to submii but Steinhoff, according to the of ficers, became enraged, and it too: their combined efforts to brin him under control. In the mele Steinhoff crashed his fist througi the rear window of the Loss car. The trip to Algona was unevent ful except for an argument of two but when the party reached town Steinhoff refused to enter the jai The officers had been joined i town by Marshal Green. Steinhof was pushed into the jail by Loss but came out again, and Loss an Green had to take him down an drag htm in, Deputy Loss ha since been nursing some hea bruises suffered when some o Steinhoff's blows connected.

BURGLARS RANSACK STOREJREAMERY Two burglaries in the county netted hauls of cash and considerable merchandise last Thursday night the burglars in both cases escaping. The Whittemore creamery safe was taken from the building to a nearby cornfield, where the lock was broken and the safe opened but the thieves got only $5 for hare labor. Entrance to the creamery was gained through a rear window, and the safe, which was small, was lifted out through the same win dow. At the Tice Brack general store at Ledyard burglars made away with goods valued at $500, includ ing 40 pairs of shoes, shirts, dress es, and other clothing. Entrance was again gained through a win dow. It is believed that the good were carried away in a small truck or a large sedan, There was a like burglary at the same store a yea ago. It is not believed that the burg lars at Whittemore and Ledyan were the same. At Ledyard merch andise was what was wanted, bu at the creamery it was money. The Whittemore job is believed to have been the work of inexperienced tal ent. The Brack burglary may have been the work of a city gang pick ing up goods for resale at "fence." Liquor Store Slash Takes Man Off Here Forty-eight employes of state liquor stores, including G. C. Itnrton, niglitwntchmnn liore, lost their jobs in a payroll slush by the state liquor commission last Thursday. Only the store at Spencer escaped without a cut. The act will save $18,300 annually, and the reductions were made to decrease overhead expense, seemingly because business and profits have not been what they were expected to be. Three persons each were dis- Ali.-irgfiff flfr Hin Ttnvpiipnrfj Waterloo, Council Bluffs, Cedar Rapids, and Pubnque stores, where sales did not reach the volume anticipated by the coin- mission when they were opened. The Algona store is showing a profit, but in some-of the others losses have been incurred. 2 to Plead Guilty at Em'burg Today Frank Vayette, Algona, who has been waiting trial in jail for som weeks on a charge of breaking and entering, was to be taken to Em metsburg yesterday to plead guilty Vayette, whose nickname i "Frankenstein," broke into th Bunkofske barber shop 'on nortl Dodge street last spring and dam aged windows and doors.

As Le Roy was driving the :eam onto the scales the boys umped off, and Howard slipped and fell under the rear wheel of he wagon, which passed over his neck. Le Roy did not know the accident Jiad happened till the other children called to him. He advised :he boy's father of the accident, not mowing that the child had died. The boy was taken to the Jorgenson home across the street, and Doctor Williams was called. He notified county officials of the accident. The body was taken to the Bancroft undertaking parlor.

Besides his parents he is survived by three sisters and two brothers. No inquest was held, and Sheriff Dahlhauser, County Attorney McMahon and Coroner Evans listed the death as an unavoidable accident. SOUTH DAKOTA IS CHANGED TO DESERT_WASTE Algonian Finds Bare Fields and Stock ' Dying Rapidly. Archie Hutchison and Tom Trenary, the latter tenant of the Hutchison Oakdale farm east of Burt, got home Saturday from a cattle-buying expedition to Cottonwood, S. D.

Wesleyan Jailed Here After Scrap With Burt Youth Henry Brandt, Wesley, received a sentence of 30 days in jail, and a case against Louis Pannkuk, Burt was continued, in Justice H. B White's court Monday, on charges of assault and battery upon Clayton Schroeder, Burt. Brandt pleaded guilty. Pannkuk is a member o: the CCC at Forest City, and his case was continued during good behavior. The'"altercation developed when Brandt and Pannkuk went to Schroeder's home to recover a wrist watch belonging to.a sister of one of the boys which Schroeder had borrowed. They forced him to accompany them in a truck t were driving, when he refused to give it up, and they started for Al gona, where, they threatened, they would turn Schroeder over to Sher iff Dahlhauser. As the trio neared Algona Schroeder agreed to give up the watch, and they drove back for it Before Brandt and Pannkuk sue ceeded in getting Schroeder into the truck, blows were struck, an< Schroeder filed information nex day. .1. » Dump Caretaker is Let Off in Rumpui A charge of disorderly conduc brought against Jesse Umbenhauer caretaker at the city dump at the north edge of town, was dismisse< yesterday by Justice Danson.

Mr. Hutchison said he came home depressed and did not expect o get his morale back for a month, -le and Mr. Trenary bought 90 head of cattle which are now at the Oakdale farm. The J. G. McDonald family at Burt accompanied Mr. Hutchison and Mr. Trenary. Mr. McDonald 'ormerly operated a lumberyard at Kennebac, S.

PLANTING DETERMINES AAA STATJJSJF CROPS Farmers are asking: "How many acres of wheat will I be permitted to sow this fall, and not interfere with my corn-hog contract?" County Agent Bonnstetter says the lorn-hog contract specifically says the acreage of basic commodities such as wheat, rice, and tobacco shall not be increased over the 1932 1933 years, whichever is the higher. The point not clear in the minds of farmers is: "Do we call wheat sown in the fall of 1933, 1934 wheat or not?" In all cases with wheat, the limitation is on the number of acres planted during the period December 1, 1933, to November 30, 1934, rather than on the number of acres harvested during such period. Any farmer having a corn-hog contract need only consider the number of acres planted from December 1, 1933, to November SO, 1934. These acres may not exceed those planted during the same per- The postoffice site question had! been the main topic of street con* versation since Monday, when J. Ti Nelson, Des Moines, came to in* spect sites proposed in bids on filet with Postmaster J. A. McDonald. It is believed that interest among business men lies between threat sites: the horseshoe court back oft the Advance shop, owned by thof Galbraith estate, with the Heisa) lot next south; the Druggists Mttr* tual lots south of the KossutS County State bank building, wherof the old livery barn stands; and thai* Mrs. Jos.

Despite a liberally signed peti* tion favoring the Galbraith-Heisal location, the town is not "sold" oni any one of the three sites. Among disinterested citizens there seems. to be little choice. Mr. Nelson is giving careful at-* tention to all proposals. Pictured of all the sites have been taken. also of the business streets, and two plats of the town have beet* furnished by the Community club< Community Club Neutral. At a meeting of the Community club board Monday it was decided that the club would maintain strict! neutrality between sites.

Frame Buildings Interfere. '' A stumbling block in the selection of this site is the presence of the Hodges garage building and tha former Lacy laundry building, botbj of frame construction and considered serious fire risks. It is re-t ported that if the Galbraith-Heisa site is selected the Hodges building would have to be removed, possibly the Lacy building also. There hag been some talk of a public sub- 1 scription to buy and wreck one oij both buildings. , Wadsworth Corner Considered. ' If the Druggists Mutual site fat selected all buildings will have to}be removed except the Legion hall* The Wadsworth corner is favored •• by some citizens because it is a! southwest corner, which, other factors being equal, is -what the gov* ernment wants, also because thel site is level, well shaded, and lit line with other public buildings.
