Schrader Iwas Nay' Cow Testing to Be Commenced in Near Future Kossuth veterinarians are preparing for the fifth test of Kossuth cattle for bovine tuberculosis, and the campaign will be undertaken as soon as the wave of 'sleeping sickness" among horses in the county subsides. The tests are taken every three years, and this will be the fifth in Kossuth county. Kossuth was first accredited as free from bovine tuberculosis in 1925, when the entire county was tested by the department of agriculture. Since that time the tests have been given by local veterinarians acting under the department of agriculture. Testing costs are kept at a minimum, and the extra premium paid for products of tuberculosis free counties more than off sets in a short time the cost. This year's tests will show only about one-half of one percent reactors, it is estimated. In the 1934 tests there were only 275 reactors out of 71,000 cattle tested, showing how effective the campaign against the disease has been. Cattle who react to the disease are immediately slaughtered, and the farmer Is paid an indemnity by the government to cover a large share of his loss.

Maxwell has begun a new home on north Minnesota street It will be of Colonial style, with three rooms, bath and garage, on the first floor, two bedrooms ana bath on the second floor. There will be many built-in modern conveniences Coyan & Son are the contractors FARM HORSES IN DANGER OF NEWJJISEASE Farmers Warned Not to Overwork Their Animals. Farmers who have been keeping horses in the barns day and night during the epizootic of "sleeping sickness" are going to experience trouble with the animals soon if rations are not cut down and the horses given some exercise. Doctors Fox and Winkel have already received calls from farmers with horses suffering with azoturia a kidney trouble which is more immediately serious than is "sleeping sickness." This results direc- ly from too much high concentrated feed, such as grain, and lack of exercise. Work Animals Cautiously. Farmers who are again taking their horses out of the barn to be worked should make the change gradually. Animals who have been kept in the barns have grown somewhat soft, and are not able to stand the ordinary amount of work and must be "broken in." If worked too hard azoturia may set in and a valuable animal be lost. With the coming of cool weather a marked drop in the number of new cases of "sleeping sickness" has been noted, and Monday only three new cases had been reported before noon at the Fox & Winkel office. Several times that number had been reported during the high point of the disease. A continued drop is anticipated as the weather cools and disappearance of the disease is expected with the first killing frosts. Doctor Pox estimated Monday that 1200 horses had been killed in Kossuth county during the epizootic, but that many hundreds of other animals had been sick and had recovered from the disease. Both well and convalescent animals should be worked only slightly for some time yet to avoid perhaps fatal consequences Horses which slow down, appear dull, or sweat excessively should be unhitched when the condition is first noticed and kept from work. Specimens ure Taken. Specimens of flies and mosquitoes were taken here one day last week by two federal men, one a veterinarian and the other an entomologist. Insects were taken to Ames where they will be permitted to bite guinea pigs. If the pigs contract "sleeping sickness' then the way the disease is spread will be learned. There is nothing definitely known now about how the disease travels. Mosquitoes and flies are tentatively Blamed, and the unusual plague of mosquitoes this late summer has given credence to the belief this insect may be to blame. When method of transmission of the disease is definitely known a method of prevention can be developed. Stockholders Will Consider Revision of Golf Club Laws A special meeting of Country club stockholders has been called for this week Thursday evening at 8 o'clock at the clubhouse by the board. The directors have found that rules of the club conflict in many cases, and a committee has been rewriting them. The new rules will be read to the stockholders at the meeting. It is also planned that the club's annual meeting shall hereafter be held in the early fall instead of in the dead of winter, when little or no interest is taken in the club. Committees and directors can then go ahead many months beforehand on plans for improvements, etc. If the new bylaws are adopted Thursday evening five new directors and a new president will be elected at the meet** * Kepairs for Bryant riunued. The local school board will meet tomorrow evening to consider bids for repairing the ventilating and heating system at the Bryant building. New CCC Rules Permit the Boys to Keep Money W. E. McDonald, in charge of CCC enrollment in Kossuth, has received information on the October call for enlistments which shows a departure from the cust6mary method of determining those eligible. Now all unemployed youths between 17 and 23 may enroll whether or not the family is on relief. Heretofore the family must be on relief, and the bulk of the youth's monthly check had to be sent to the family. Now youths whose families are not on relief can enroll and the money formerly sent to the family is kept in a "jack-pot" for him till he is released when it is given to him in a lump sum. This ruling is designed to aid boys whose families, while not dependent upon him, nor upon the county, cannot afford to give him further schooling or training. Boys who wish to enroll may do so by seeing Mr. McDonald or by calling at the office of the overseer of the poor in the southwest corner 1 of the courthouse basement.

Specht on charges of driving while drunk. Peterson, who is a farm hand, is accused of ramming into two cars near the Masonic Temple. He hit one car and in turning the corner to escape rammed into another, and then was arrested by Marshal Green. Eggert was arrested at the children's playgrounds a block east of the Bryant school when his car hit the parked Harry Baker paint truck and careened across the street and into the playground, the official report states. Bernard McBride, of Seneca, was given a 30-day jail sentence on drunkenness charges at Bancroft Saturday, and J. Murtha was sentenced to ten days in jail on charges of writing a bad check. Jos. Praser, "Abe" Carter, and William Squires were fined $5 each by Mayor Specht Monday morning on drunkenness charges.

Murphy, of Dubuque, will give the principal talk at the dedication of the new Algona postoffice next I week Tuesday, the date which was approved by the postoffice department recently. Senator Gillette, who is not to be confused with State Senator Gillette, of Postoria, and of this district, has recently figured in national news because of his announcement that he opposed the sup/eme court bill, and his appearance here will be viewed with deep interest as affecting his candidacy for renomination next fall. Also speaking at exercises will be a representative of the postal department, who has not yet been named, but it is anticipated he will come from division headquarters at St. Louis. The complete program has not yet been arranged, but will be announced later. A platform will be built on the postoffice steps and the program is scheduled to begin promptly at 2 o'clock. Several "local representatives will talk. The postoffice will be closed during the dedication exercises, following which an opportunity to tour the building will be offered to as many as can be accommodated by the time available. Arrangements are in charge of a committee composed of Postmaster W. W. Sullivan, Secretary 0. S. Reiley, of the Chamber of Commerce, and L. E. Linnan. «. ROBERT NEITZEL, 15, DIES_ATJOWA CITY Robert Neitzel, 15, died Friday morning at the state hospital at Iowa City following an operation, the nature of which has not been learned locally.

DAMAGE SUITS FEATURE NEW TERM OF COURT Judge Heald Comes Monday; Grand Jury Tuesday. Court will open Monday with Judge George A. Heald, of Spencer, on the bench. The grand jury will be chosen Tuesday morning, and cases triable before a petit jury will come the following week. Friday was the final day for til ling cases, and as a result several new cases were filed last week. Indications are, however, that this will be a light term, for the number of cases is smaller than normal for September following the long summer vacation period. Big Damage Case Filed. A damage suit was filed in which Elmer Jasperson asks a total of $11,681.60 from the Anderson Grain & Coal Co., Homer Anderson and Russell Sands. The case arises out of a collision August 12 four miles east and two miles north, of Algona in which the Jasperson car hit the side of an Anderson grain truck driven by Russell Sands at an intersection. Mr. Jasperson suffered a fractured skull when both vehicles went into the ditch. He asks ?5000 personal damages, $78.50 for hospital bills, $78 for doctor's bills already accumulated and an, additional $50 for future doctor's bills, $2500 for pain and anguish already suffered, $2500 for future suffering, $1000 for loss of time, and $475 for damages to his car. Car Hits Cow; Suit. L. C. Schichtl also filed a damage suit in which he asks $885 from P. M. Erickson. April 19 he was a passenger in a car driven by Henry Johannsen Jr. in Cresco township on the Hobarton road when the car ran into a cow grazing on the highway. The car turned over and he suffered a broken shoulder blade, sprains and other injuries. Damages are itemized as $500 for pain and suffering, $35 for doctor's bills, and $350 for time lost as a result of his injuries. The petition alleges the cow belonged to Mr. Erickson. C. 0. D. Case Filed. An unusual case la brought by the Brady Dray & Transfer Co. against H. W. Post and the Post Dray and Transfer Co. The Brady Co., of Port Dodge, claims that the Algona concern delivered a 42-ft. elevator from the Portable Elevator Co., of Bloomington, 111., to Harry Keith, of Algona, without collecting a C. 0. D. charge of $247.43. The Brady company had accepted the shipment and turned it over at a junction to the Post trucks. The petition alleges that the Brady company was forced to pay the C. O. D. charge, and hence seeks collection from, the delivering agent. Two new divorce actions are started. Hazel Hudson is asking a divorce from Bert L. Hudson. The couple was married in December, 1916, and she claims desertion in October, 1928. Ruth A. Hunter is asking a divorce from Rollin V. A. Hunter, alleging cruelty and drunk- eness. The couple was married in Washington, D. C., in 1930, and separated recently. She asks custody of a son, 3% years old. Sues for $25 Monthly. An usual contract suit is brought by Prances B. Ferren against her mother-in-law, Mrs. Kate Wilson. The petition alleges the plaintiff's husband and Mrs. Wilson's son, died presumably in the war but not stated in the petition, and on June 12, 1919, the wife and the mother made an agreement to split the government insurance check of 557.50 per month. According to the petition Mrs. Ferren was to receive $25 from Mrs. Wilson, to whom the checks came. Mrs. Ferren states the payments were made till June 1936, when they were stopped. Mrs. Ferren thus claims she is now entitled to $350. The government insurance period will expire n October 1938, according to the petition, and she asks enforcement of the agreement till the expira- :ion of the period, in addition to J ;he back payments. « Fenton People Say Fair is Best Ever Penton, Sept. 13—A large number of Penton people attended the county fair, and all report it the )est fair ever held in Kossuth. The Diamond Revue gave an especially outstanding program, and was everything it was. advertised to be. Exhibits in all departments were extra good. : * Phony Check Earns Fine for Algonian J. Murtha was given a sentence of ten days in jail by Justice Delia Welter Friday on a charge of writ- ng a bad check for one dollar in !avor of the Smoke Shop and on the Iowa State hank. The check was written August 22, and Murtha entered a plea of guilty. FAMED PHYSICIAN TO GOME FOR THE CHILDREN'S CLINIC Lillian S. Kerr, of the state university children's hospital, is he-re completing arrangements for a free clinic to be held here this week Friday in co-operation with the county medical societies- in Wright, Humboldt, and Kossuth counties. The number of patients to be examined from other counties is not yet known, but it is expected that some 125 crippled children will receive the attention of orthopedic authorities from the university hospital. Heading the staff of physicians is the famed Dr. Arthur Steindler, internationally known for his work in orthpedics. Doctor Donahue, of Sioux City, will also be an examiner. In addition there will be physicians and nurses from the university hospital who will assist in making the examinations under direction of Doctor Steindler. Seven rooms at the Kossuth hospital have been reserved for the examining physicians. The clinic is made possible through funds provided by the Social Security act. Between 35 and 40 physicians from the three counties are expected to attend the clinic. They will also attend a dinner in the evening at the Algona hotel.

CCC Men, Bancroft, Available for Jobs Bancroft, Sept. 13 — Recent acts of congress extended the existence of the Civilian Conservation Corps tor three years, but placed restrictions on age and length of service that will, between now and September 30, cause release of 26 men from Company 3728 at Bancroft, of which Lt. Wayne Hardman is commander. The men to be released have all demonstrated qualities to assure employers of faithful service, and Lieut. Hardman is anx- ous to hear from anyone who can give one or more of them employment. He will answer all inquiries promptly and promises an honest estimate based on COG records of the character and capabilities of any or all of the men. WOMAN, TWIN BOY AND HIRED MAN VICTIMS Weeds and Tall Corn Blamed in County Road Accident. Dickinson Niece to Wed, Mr. and Mrs. L. J. Dickinson and Mrs. Helen Dickinson attended the wedding of a niece, Marion Van Mess, to Cecil Boyer, at Mason City last week Tuesday. Mr. Boyer lives at Mason City and is in the employ of the Standard Oil Co. Three were killed and seven Injured in an auto crash west of Fenton Sunday evening. The dead are Mrs. Norman Pinnestad, her 2-year- old twin son Duane, and Peter Mergen, 27, of Whittemore. The accident happened at an in-t tersection when the Ralpk Malloy car, from Emmetsburg, and th» Pinnestad car collided. The Emmetsburg car was coming from the west and the Pinnestad car was going north. The setting Bun. coupled with tall corn and -weeds near the intersection, is blamed for the crash which occurred only- two miles from the Pinnestad home. Nine jn Finnestad Cor. In the Finnestad car were nine people; Mr. and Mrs. Finnestad, the twins, Duane and Deloris, two other daughters, Joanne, 6, and Marilyn, a year old, Nick Gatto, the Pinnestad hired man, Mrs. Opal Henry, neighbor, and the hired man on her farm, Mr. Mergen. Malloy was alone in his car. Thes two-year-old was instantly^ killed when the car turned byer on him. Mergen was also instantly killed by internal injuries. Mrs. Finnestad died at midnight six hours after the accident of internal injuries. Her abdomen was badly crushed, and she suffered a broken leg and broken pelvis. Sh» wag not unconscious till a few moments before death, and knew that her twin son had been killed. Two Others Badly Hurt, The six-year-old daughter ia la an Emmetsburg hospital with critical injuries, and Mrs. Henry is also reported in a serious condition with an injured back and other injuries. Gatto, Mr. Pinnestad, Marilyn, and Deloris escaped serious injury, it is believed, but vera taken to the hospital for first aid treatment for cuts and brnises. Funeral arrangements had not bee*, completed yesterday, but were expected to be held this afternoon at Fenton. It is believed that neither ear was traveling at a high rate of speed, and Mr. Finnestad is reported to have slowed down when coining to the intersection because of the high corn. He looked west, but because of .the low SUB could not see the other car, whick was too close to the intersection to come to a stop. Tall Corn Crashes Feared. The accident is the kind that ar« most feared by law enforcement officials because no means can be taken to prevent them except by- education of drivers to the dangers of driving on county roads i» the fall when the corn and weeds hide the view of the intersecting roads. Wide arterial highways protected by signs and with patrol protection can be kept fairly free of accidents, but the patrol cannot be effective on the side farm-to-market roads. DISTRICT METHODIST PASTORSMEET HERE An Algona Methodist district pastors' meeting at the Ambrose A. Call state park on Labor day was attended by all but three of 40 ministers. The Rev. W. G. Muhleman, district superintendent, presided. and disciplinary business was transacted in the forenoon. Guest speakers were Dr. C. H. Kamphoefner, Sioux City, field secretary for the conference claimants fund, Dr. M. L. Sunderlin, Bioux City, representing Morningslde college; and Dr. M. L. Metcalf, Sioux City, field representative b£ the Methodist hospital there. At noon a picnic lunch was served, after which problems of the district work were discussed. One of the new projects is a district "ashram" to be held at gupt. Muhleman's camp in northern Minnesota four days, beginning October 26. The purpose will be to make the ministers more "universal-minded" for next year's district work. Methodism will soon celebrate the 200th anniversary of its founding and of John Wesley's Aldergate experience. Legion Committee to Name Nominee* Commander J. D. Lowe, of Hogg post of the Legion here, has appointed a nominating committee for officers. M. H. Falkenhainer is chairman, and other members are 3. M. Smith, G. D. Brundage, H. G.
