The city council and the park hoard, as we know, are two civic bodies, but unfortunately their laws, rules and regulations are not exactly what you would call kinfolks. Anyway, the city says it has no money in the band fund, as all the dough has been given to the band, and the park board says it has not made a levy, or will have to make one If funds are needed for a bandstand. And there the matter rests—with the question no further along now than It was before, so far as we can see. The city paving work Is supposed to start next week for sure, after the Amadeo Paving Co. gets through with a job at Indlanolo, Iowa. AUhouxh. hiring of «R extra night patch was promised at a council a*o Thursday, nothing had been done about the matter last Saturday by Mayor Specbt. Business men of the city liad asked for extra protection, which is an obvious necessity. A new well was decided upon as a project by the city for the near future. The old well casings arc getting In need of replacement or repair, the council was Informed.

It must have been. Some time during the night on Thursday, thieves believed to be the same gang, again broke Into the creamery, and this time stole 45 tubs of butter, topping their previous work by one tub. Over 38 tubs were unmolested; evidently the truck used by the thieves was not large enough for them. Or perhaps they will let them remain and make a third trip 'n the near future. Entrance was gained in about .he same manner as last time. A Window on the east side was broken, somebody climbed through, and opened the creamery from Inside to take the butter out. The total value of the stolen butter Is about $900, Fred Kuecker, creamery manager, stated. He discovered the theft, Friday morning, and notified county officers, who did what they could do, but had very little to work on as the thieves left practically no clues. Since the creamery wns robbed last time, Kuecker has kept a light burning every night, which was put on about the time he retired. It la believed that the robbery was committed early in the evening before the light was put on. Although the loss is covered by insurance, local creamery men and county officials, have decided that enough la enough, and have requested that a state bureau of investigation agent be sent here to Investigate.
