Indian hunters: Bernard Yoeman, 20,000 Acres of Kossuth Land Game Management About 20,000 acres of Kossuth county ore now under the game management area plan of the state fish and game department, it was learned this week. This includes a game management area from Blackford park to the Irvington bridge, along the Upper Des Moines river, on area of about 8,000 acres; an area at Ledyard of about 10,000 acres, running east and west, Just south of Ledyard; and a Plum Creek area of 2,000 acres, In the vicinity of ;he Mike McEnroe place. The purpose of the game management area Idea is to furnish Improved cover and feed conditions for wild life and also to make arrangements so that the land owner or tenant can prevent trespassing and poaching, and control hunting in an orderly, authorized way. In game management areas, which will all be posted, hunters must obtain permission to hunt from the land owner, and after finishing their hunting must report to the owner or tenant before leaving the premises, giving results of their hunting. This Insures control of the hunting, and also gives the state department an accurate Idea of how rapidly the wild game is being killed. Irwln Smith, Leroy.

Charlie Walker, now In his 81st year, has just cut down a large burr oak tree that has quite a history. This tree stood on the lot now owned by Richard Leigh on College street. It stood about 60 feet high, and measured 155 feet in circumference two feet above the ground. Extending out from this tree further up were three large branches, each one as large as an ordinary tree, and giving a spread of branches between 80 and 90 feet. Identified with the early history of Algona, this beautiful tree stood in the door yard Of tbfi J- W. Moore cabin, built in 1865, and was a large tree then, 79 years ago. B. P. Reed's History of Kossuth County, states that "the Moore cabin was the second building erected in Algona and stood in what la now the alley between R. M. Gardner's residence and F. A. Corey brick; bouse, and served for post ofllce. town hall, boarding house and rweting house. It was 16x20 feet, with clapboard roof and split loff floor."

Call* for Popular-Kale 'The government of Iowa should be restored to its proper local and constitutional functions and officered by people who believe in popular; rule, and who do not favor dictatorial ln« terference with their rlghta of CMf- zcnshlp. As I see it, one of the great questions which must be determined by the people of the state Is whether they are to govern or be governed. "I believe In the original principles of the republican party, and In government of the people, by the people. Tlil.s includes within Its scope the guaranteeing of a square deal to every citizen, and the protection of the individual In the enjoyment of the fruits of lii.s mil and skill. Decries "Strong Ami," Role ••The effect on the policiea of the present state administration has been to discourage Individual enterprise, and to keep citizens of Iowa, regardless of business or occupation, in a state of uncertainty and fear. There can be no resumption of prosperous conditions in this state, no re-employment of workers bv Industry, under tho .strong ami rule which has been at- tcmptt'd during the past year." Although Alex Bonnstetter himself ha.s made no such statement, rumors have persisted for some time that he would be a candidate for state senator. Mr. Bonnstetter has been serving as a member of the legislature. He is a di-moorut. If such were the case, it would undoubtedly bring on a real battle for the Kossuth post in the of representative*.
