Among the places reporting losses in the last few days Were the following: Otto Roppen, Lakota, loss of about 200 chickens. Byron Robinson, north of Bancroft, loss of 200 chickens. Klaus Wibben, east of Bancroft loss of 300 Chickens. Oyde Wardrip, one mile west and two north of Hobarton, loss of 60 chickens. All Operate Same In all cases the thefts' were reported as having been committed in about the same manner. No clues have been discovered, or, «*-Oeait none that the officers are divulging. It seemed evident, bowfevcr, that the thefts were being '.perpetrated by "local" talent, from somewhere within or near the county.

Webster got -.into •' M» car, which was parked la front of Moe & SJogren's. He stepped on the starter, and the fireworks began. The car was in reverse gear, and before Webster could manipulate the brake, the machine had backed across the street up over the sidewalk, and crashed into a plate glass window in the front of the store. In the process of doing so, the car missed two other parked machines on the other side of the street, some pedestrians on the sidewalk, but not several crates of apples, which were smashed in all directions. The damages was confined to the window and the apples, and probably Mr. Webster's pocketbook. F. B.

POLITICAL STIR EVIDENT WITH A MONTH TO WIN GrOP Prospects Brighter Than For Last Four Years 3 CORNER SHERIFF FIGHT A PUZZLE With October, political activity has again become very evident in Kossuth county, and observers from both sides predict one of the hardest, and perhaps one of the most venemous campaigns in the county's history. Not only is it plain that county 'candidates will be at each other's throats, tooth and nail, but state and national battles will be far from Sunday School picnics. OOP Given A Chance For the first time in four years, the republican candidates for county office are conceded a chance to iset elected. Without thought of partiality, it still would seem that the democratic vote is slightly heavier in the county than is the republican, at least from a presidential standpoint, but any observer can find many cases where straight ballots will not be found in as great numbers as was the case four years ago, or even two years ago. 17,000 Kossuth Ballots An order for 17,085 ballots has been made by the county, to be printed in The Algona Upper Des Moines plant. The Fenton Reporter has been designated as official democratic paper to publish the ballot later for that party, and The Tltonka Topic has been similarly designated for the republicans . . . In addition to the general election, November 3. voters of Iowa will be given a chance to vote on the question of whether" or not they want a state census taken every ten years. An amendment to the state constitution is proposed to repeal the section necessitating such a ten-year census. Three for Sheriff Possibly one of the chief .centers of Interest will be. the forthcoming ?^ p _f or A h<> ° mce of •»«'!«• With Gilbert Hargreaves, republican candidate of two years ago, again In the race, and with Casey Loss democratic nominee, facing a low of votes to Carl Dahlhauser. In cumbent sheriff, who U running Jndependan; ^ 1» not stating iTiecret to «press the opinion that Hargreaves will have an advantage because of the three-sided race. Dahlhauser who came within a few votes ol edging out Loss, his former deputy, is certain to draw many votes that ordinarily would go to Loss, the democratic nominee. Whether either Loss or Dahlhauser will be able to concentate strength enough to defeat Hargreaves remains some- ihing for a straw vote or Literary Digest poll to decide. TO PICK DEMO LEGISLATIVE ENTRY Selection of a democratic cand- date for the Iowa legislature from Kossuth county ivill be made either Wednesday evening or Saturday noon, L. E. Linnan, county chairman stated, Monday night. The candidate will take the place of George Moulton, Ledyard, who recently died, and wtll oppose Tice 3rack, Ledyard, republican nom- nee. x VOL. 34.—NO.. 40 -1-S7 ,250 Damage Suit Against Lu Verne Man Opens Wednesday School Day* Begin For These Tots In New Kindergarten Groups Added This Year Kossuth Boys Win Cattle Show Honor After the judging was all completed and the final reports made at the Dairy Cattle Congress Sunday afternoon, the Kossuth Coun- y 4-H members had to their credit he following winnings—in the two ear old Holstein class, Floyde Bode Algona, was first and Frank Schoby, Algona, eighth.
