For comparison the following facts were brought out at the meeting. If during a year each of 600 foxes kills only 20 pheasants, the total loss would be 12000; or, with a daily limit for hunters of three pheasants, nearly 4,000 hunters would be robbed of a day's hun.tlng by the foxes. It is well known, however, that ton aportins The county league urges all town units to do their part with fox hunts getting not only old foxes but the young as we'll, and and the destruction of dens. The statement was made that one of the insurance companies owning considerable land in tho county has inquired of its tenants concerning the number of fox dens on its farms, and the answer was an average of two dens a farm. This would mean an average of four adults and probably 15 young per farm. It was also brought out that the county has hauled several thousand tons of rock to various dam locations and WPA labor will be used to build new dams as well as to repair old ones this winter. ] ail Clerk Change Is Opposed IOTEST MADE IY c, OF c, TO IEADQUARTERS ins Would Remove 7 ive Families to South Dakota. |Secretary Reiley was advised ist night by telephone from Milwaukee division head- pnrtcrs at Mason City that Sioux train would bo nn^ed back to its former hcdiilc November 29.

DICKINSON TALKS ATW,C.U,MEET THURSDAY EVENING The W. C. T. U. had a guest evening Thursday at the Presbyterian church, 70 attending, and a program followed a 7 o'clock banquet. L. J. Dickinson gave an address. He encouraged the W. C. T. U. on their educational program and complimented them on their program to raise $1,000,000 to fight the liquor traffic. Mr. Dickinson told the audience that he had never had liquor in his home and had never used it. Before his third operation last winter his surgeon asked, "Do you use liquor or tobacco?" and Mr. Dickinson's answer was "No." "You have a good chance for recovery then," replied the doctor. A point made by Senator Dickinson is that it is more important at present to look after local situations, than to try to direct activities on a national scale from Washington, D. C. The county W.. C. T. rj. president Mrs. Joseph Skow, Wesley, gave highlights on the national convention she attended at Washington in June. She also reported a recent state meeting at Boone. Richard Keen sang two vocal solos, and Merle Pratt gave a trumpet solo Mrs. A. E. Michel sang two solos accompanied at the piano by Barbara Haggard. FIRST FARM SALES 2 DAYS NEXT WEEK ELMER EMORY IS ACCUSED BY WESLEY CHILD Bound to Grand Jury; Saturday After Hearing. The farm auction season opens next week with two sales, one Wednesday, Nov. 17, by Van A Hansen, a mile east o'f the Doan church, north and east of Sexton the other next day, Thursday November 18, by Geo. L. Gray, a quarter mile east and three-fourths mile north of Burt. Mr. Hansen is going to move to town; Mr Gray to Florida. Both will be large sales. In each a complete line of farm machinery will be offered, and Mr. Gray will sell his household goods. Mr. Hansen will sell 68 head of livestock, including two horses, 28 cattle mostly good dairy stuff, eight sheep, an,d 30 hogs; also 350 Leghorns. C. O. Riddle will be auctioneer; the Titonka Savings bank, elerk. The Doan Aid will 3 lunch. Mr. Gray offers 110 head of livestock, including 29 cattle, 77 Hampshire hogs, and four horses. There are some extra-good Hoi- stein cows in this sale; also some White Leghorns and a few tons of alfalfa. Stewart & Flaig will be the auctioneers, and the Burt Savings bank will furnish the clerk. The Burt Metb-mst Aid will serve unch. The Hansen sale will open at 2:30 p. m., and the Gray sale at 10 a; m. Elmer Emory, farmer near Sexton, was arrested Saturday morn.-* ng by Sheriff Casey Loss, and waa charged with an assault with indent to commit rape, the victim be* ng a little girl, only eight years old, and only in the third grade in school. . I Emory, who is 37 years old, waa bound to the grand jury by Justice P. A, Danson Saturday afternoon! lollowing a hearing in which testimony was given by the embarrassed little girl and others who charged they saw Emory pick up the youngster and offer her a ride, in his car. Emory Denies Charge. Emory denied all guilt, and re"used to waive preliminary examination. This refusal required that' the hearing be held, and four witnesses, including the little girl, were called from Wesley. The attack is alleged to have talc- en place in Emory's car in the country near Wesley where he picked up the little girl while she was walking home from school.. The witnesses, they stated at the hearing, noticed that he did not turn on the right road to lead to the girl's home. ' The attack was not successful, and the little girl was not injured, but suffered a bad fright from, which she had not fully recovered whe_n she testified Saturday. " Advised to Stfty in .Ja.il, Bond in the case was fixed aB $1500, and Emory wanted to get a bondsman, but on advice he decided to remain in jail. Feeling was running high In the neighborhood it was reported, and officers feared that, if Emory was released on bond he would be the subject of an attack by enfuriated neighbors. Testimony at the hearing is most ly unprintable, but the little girl identified Emory as the man who made the attempted attack. The complaint was signed by the girl's father. The case will be given to the grand jury two weeks from today, and if evidence is sufficient for indictment he will probably be placed on trial the following week. Readers should not assume Emory's guilt because the charge i3 made, and he has declared time and again that he is innocent. Guilt or innocence will be determined in the trial. This caution I should be observed particularly in i this case because of the moronic character of the crime. Has Heeii in Trouble. Emory is not unknown to Kossuth and local police officers, as he has been in trouble several times with bad checks and on drunk- eness charges. His driver's permit was suspended for a period a year ago last summer on a charge of reckless and careless driving. He paid a $5 fine for drunkenness only last Thursday. Sheriff Loss has been notified of a half dozen alleged attacks since the news of Emory's arrest came out,'and some record may be made of victims' testimony for possible use later, and some may be brought here to see Emory for possible identification. Emory is married but there are no children. 4 Pastor Speaks Here. The Rev. C. Weston Sanders, of Cartersville, 111., preached at the Baptist church Sunday at a candidate for the pastorate here. The Rev. R. E. Clearwater, Leslie, Mich., gave a sermon here recently and is another candidate. At the church at 7:30 tonight members are to decide between them. P. J. Greiner Hip Broken in a Fall P. J. Greiner fell and suffered a roken hip Friday evening at Corwith, where he owns and operates ". farm implement shop. Some ears ago he had an eye operation which left him with poor sight. He was going down a flight of stairs t a Corwith restaurant at the ime of-the accident, misjudged the istance, and fell three steps. He vas brought to the Kossuth hos- Jital, where he will be a patient ir some weeks or months. Mrs. ^arl Pearson.
