Walsh, who broke out of the Kossuth jail, is now in an individual escape propf cell at the Ft. Dodge jail. It was believed he was too familiar with the Kossuth jail and that friends might aid him here in another escape. Walsh has stated that he would not face trial. Walsh, when arraigned on the several charges stated that he had no money for a defense and asked the court to appoint an attorney to defend him. June Term is Dropped. The June term will be dropped after this year according to an order signed by the three judges assigning terms for the coming two years The June term has been a stop-gap between the April and the September terms enabling attorneys to clear up some cases before -•• McMurray Hurt m Scaffold Break McMurray, Algona con- Fib in*., •-*•»•**j , AlgVUU.

The June term was started during the land foreclosure period to permit foreclosures following the March defaults instead of having to wait till Septeiuber. Now the foreclosure cases have decreased, and the moratorium laws have made speed in such matters impossible. Assignments of judges and terms for 1938 are: January 24, DeLand; March 28, Heald; September 19, Davidson; November 21, DeLand. Assignments of judges and the terms for 1939 are: January 23, Heald; March 27, Davidson; September 18, DeLand; November 20, Judge Heald closed the active part of the September term Friday, but one or another of the judges will be available for pending cases for som/3 time and the court is being held open. Station Robber is Taken to Prison Sheriff Loss took George Allen to Anamosa Friday to begin a ten year sentence for breaking and entering the Deep Rock oil station here in September. Mrs Loss and Mrs Stephen Loss accompanied the pair, and the Algonians went to Iowa City from Anamosa to see the Iowa-Bradley football game Saturday. Soil Conservation Check-Up On Compliance in County Is Begun Fred W. Roewe, Laurens fieldman for the Iowa agricultural conservation committee, is in Kossuth, checking the work done by the county committee's farm reporters in classifying land uses and measuring and mapping fields for farmers' compliance in the 1937 farm program. He is assisted by Robert M Loss, county chairman; Le RoyJ. Nelson, Pocahontas county secretary; and H. C. Simerson, Wright county chairman. The method used in checking each reporter is to take out maps of two farms measured by such reporter and thoroughlv check these farms for crop classification and make at least two measurements of cornfields on each map. If this check indicates that the work in Kossuth has been well done, final inspection of farms will be made at once and the county office will then forward a summary of the individual performance for each farm to the state office, where it will be audited and an application for payent form prepared. To date 2279 farms out of 3500 in Kossuth have been measured for compliance with the 1337 program. This compares with 2517 farms measured in 1936. The final date for requesting inspection of farms is October 31, 1937. Anyone wishing to have a farm inspected must file a request for such inspection with the county committee on or before that date. FERTILIZER PLOTS TO BEJARVESTED County Agent A. L. Brown announces that fertilizer demonstration plots on the Arndorfer Bros, farm one mile south and a half mile west of St. Benedict will be harvested Thursday. The Arndorfer Bros, cooperated with the county Farm Bureau and tlie extension service this spring to plant corn on alkali soil, and this crop will be used in the demonstration. The purpose of this plot was to demonstrate the value of fertilizer on alkali soils also to test for the best usable fertilizer. Applications of fertilizer were made at the time of planting, 135 pounds an acre being applied. The | following combination .was used in the ratios of nitrogen, phosphorus, and potash: 0-20-10; 0-20-20; 0-9-27. Harvesting and weighing of the corn will be done in the morning, and the afternoon will be devoted to study and explanation of the results. All interested farmers and others are invited to attend. rlRST HEAVY FROST REGISTERED FRIDAY Doctors to Hold Eight-Week Study The County Medical society is holding a post-graduate course at the Hotel Algona this evening at 5 o'clock.

Rat Spends a Day in a Moat at New Federal Building Mystery! Some Algonians are wondering what became of a rat which fell into the "well" around the north basement windows of the new postoffice building Sunday. The "well" is nearly ten feet long, four feet deep, and five feet wide. The rat was in the "well" all day Sunday. Perhaps some dog or rat, or some small boys, discovered it. The P. O. janitors did not remove it. Officers Named by Academy Classes Officers for the four'upper classes of the St. Cecelia's academy mve been elected. They are: Seniors—president, John Lee The first heavy frost of the season came Friday morning, when the mercury fell to 34 degrees in the night before.

The new Cowan Building Supply Three Touchdowns in First Half Made by Locals. Algona's sflrappy football' team took the jump on a larger Manson squad Friday night at Athletic park and ran up 19 points in the first half and held that lead through the balance of the game to win 190. The Manson team was noticeably larger than the local aggregation, and it is reported the line outweighed the Algonians by several pounds per man. Algona kept the ball in the first half but in the second half, with numerous Algona reserves being sent in to gain experience, the Manson outfit had the better of the game though unable to push over a score. The game was especially thrilling for spectators for the I Manson team opened in the second j half with a series of pass plays, in' eluding laterals, forwards, and triples behind the line of scrimmage. Score Early in Game. Algona kicked off and Manson returned to the the- 39-yard line to open the game. Four Manson plays netted no yardage, and a punt was taken by Algona to the Algona 36- yard line. On the first play Algona made a first down. Three more Babe Smothers at St Benedict The four-and-a-half months old son of tho Magnus Ilahms, living a mile west of St. Benedict, smothered to death yesterday afternoon when a pillow fell over its face in the crib in which the child was sleeping. Mrs. Rahm put the pillow at the head of the bed to support a cover over tho child's face to keep any j flies away. In some manner the got llolcl ° J lne cover or the pillow and pulled it down, and it fell over the baby's face. The baby was not strong enough to get out from under and smothered. afternoon nap at 2 o'clock, and at 5 o'clock Mrs. Rahm thought the baby was sleeping longer than usual and investigated.. Dr. R. A. Evans, coroner, was called, but the child had been dead for some time. There are three other children in the family, two girls and a boy. Mrs. Rahm was Rosalia Neuroth before her marriage.

The accident happened so quickly that it is not known definitely just what caused the car to skid, for the road was straight. The car was badly wrecked and it is believed it turned over a couple of times.
