Hundreds asked that question last week as the comedy team of Cook and Wlswell put on their comic Model T automobile act before the grandstand. Well, snooping around a HtUc. your correspondent found the answer. The driver of the machine lies on a platform slung under the car, extending from axle to axle. He manipulates the controls entirely with his hands, and rear view mirrors enable him to see everything behind him, or If he has th« time he can turn his head, but there isn't much room to spare. And the Smith trained animal act, which pleased as much as any of the high class numbers, has an interesting history. The Smiths have always loved dogs, and had trained a tew some years back. One day they tdok home a stray dog, and after a few weeks the canine bjegan to learn <tricks they taught it during spare moments. This god was the small poodle who parked so casually In the bucket in the cen- ter of the stage. Gradually they acquired other dogs, nil of which are Just ordinary dogs with no fnncy pedigrees, but amiable tempers and good minds. SmitJh says ithqy like their work, and neither he nor his wife have used torture or Inflicted pain In an effort to tench their dogs tricks. The dogs gradually learned their tricks and rivalry developed between them for favors and for the lumps of sugar which they recelv-r after each successful act, and resulted In each one of them trying Its best. The Smiths use no leashes, give the dcgs enough freedom so that they do not feel like captives and never pun- Ifh the animals except by ignoring th:m, which proves to be the hardest tnfkmastcr of all, and brings the desired results. The entire free ac* program was pleasing to the general public, and comment here was to the effect that the Kossuth grandstand free acts were superior to those at the state fair.

TTTONKA STORE YIELDS $150 IN CASH^LOTHING County Sheds at Lakota Stripped of Gasoline and Oils SWEA CITY OFFICER CHASED STRANGERS Two robberies, one in Titonka, and a second near Lakota, were reported to th« county sheriff's ofHce 'here this week. The first robbery was reported when county employees found that some time between Saturday night and Monday morning, thieves had pried the toe* from the county tool shed near Lakota, and stolen a quantity of gasoline and oil. The exact amount taken had not been determined. Authorities seemed to believe that it was the work of someone In the vlc- nity as the Standard Oil bulk station at Lakotn was robbed last week In ft similar fashion. Much Clothing Stolen The Callles department store of Titonka, reported the low of about $150 in cash, and a quantity of clothing, including ready-to-wear clothes, blankets, blue denim Jackets and other miscellaneous material. The robbery was discovered Tuesday morning. The robbers gained entrance through the back door, but the door had not been broken in, and Sheriff Carl Dahlhauser said that he believed the lock had been picked. There were no automobile tracks outside the door, so the thieves must have carried tlwtr loot to a nearby automobile. No Night Marshal Titonka has no night marshal, Sher- 111 Dahlhauser said, although Win. Rlcklefs is the day marshal, and does special duty on nights when there arei dances or other activities. It was also reported to the Upper Cos Maine* cfljou that th».ro«r«ha) at Sw.n City, on the same nlg-ht that the Cnlllos robbery occurred, spied tome suspicious looking strangers, and as he endeavored to accost them, they ran from him and left town In a hurry. They may have txen connected with the same gang that raided the Callles store.

Jim Duryea, Just 75 Years Young, Is Honored Here Jim Duryea, 75 years young, celebrated his diamond jubilee birthday last Friday evening at his home, 223 Call street, while dozens of his friendi arrived tlirough the evening to help him observe the event—one thut unfortunately does not come for very many of us. Jim, well known throughout thU section, and in charge of the billiard section of Barry's here, smoked his plp.i and reinmesctxi us friends .iat and talked throughout thx; evening.

Minneapolis, Hochester, New York. Cincinnati and other big eastern Uams. Aa a token of friendship, a group of Jims guests preserved him w"ith a birthday gift. A bounti'ul lunch was- a ho much enjoyed by tUo--j present.
