At day break they seemed to get their bearings and disappeared. The next morning Lewis McWhorter saw about a hundred of them In the Etherington plowed land on the diagonal road near Plum Creek. The birds were so tired that he was able to approach them quite closely. There were three kinds, white which are called snow geese, dark colored ones With white necks, which are blue geese and others which looked like the ordinary tame goose and were probably white-fronted American geese.

The game, another league tilt, will be played here next Friday even- Ing under the lights. The Webster City Lynx had things their own way most of the way in the Algona gome, having advantage of size, experience, and reserve power. The Webster City boys are undefeated and unscored on this year. The first touchdown came on the third play of the game, when Walt Willson intercepted un Algona pass and sprinted back 45 yards for the score. Webster City used Its reserves freely after leading by two touchdowns. An 80-yards run netted the final touchdown in the closing minutes, after the third touchdown had been scored on a pass.

And that Is the reason, believes Mrs. Elizabeth Rebecca Sarchett, that she has enjoyed such good health. She says there is no substitute for good, hard work. Mrs. Sarchett says more people are killed In auto accidents and by liquor, than by good, hard work. "Too many women are afraid of a wash board and a garden full of weeds," said Mrs. Sarchett. She married when almost 20 years of age to Charles W. Sarchett, a Civil War veteran, and is the mother of nine children, five of whom are living. The living children are Eugene M. of Maple Hill, Francis M. of Sheldahl, Mrs. Tom Metcalf on the farm west of Algona, Mrs. P. W. Reece on a farm northeast of Lakota, and Winifred at home. Her oldest son Is 67 years of age. Edwin, a World War veteran, died in 1934. A brother of Mrs. Sarchett, John M. Johnson, a Civil War veteran, went Into the army from West Point, where he graduated, and was made a captain In General Custer's army.

E. church in Swea City with the Rev. G. R. McDowell in charge, assisted by Rev. E. H. Harvey. Burial was made at Brltt.

During girlhood she moved with her parents to Illinois, where on March 27, 1901, she was united In marriage to Edw. Hammond. Eleven children were born to this union, one daughter dying in Infancy. For the past 20 years the family has resided In Iowa, and about three years ago moved to the farm six miles north of Swea City. The deceased had been a membe of the Methodist Episcopal church since childhood. She Is survived by her husband,, five daughters: Mrs. ffithel Wood, Woden; Mrs. BOILER BED HOT WHEN DISCOVERED Marauders, who turned on an nulomntic stoker at the Ledyard school, some time Sunday night, left without stealing anything a.s yet noticed, but almost blew the boiler wide open. A window In one of the rooms gave the prowlers entry into the. school. After getting into the room, the burglars broke the room door open, and then began a somewhat aimless investigation of the building. Tinker With Stoker Going Into the boiler room, they turned the stoker on. and for the rest of the night until the school was opened this morning, the furnace was hard at work. The stoker had been left piled high with coal, but the weather did not call for any fire In the furnace. When the stoker started In to work, It poured the heat out in grand style without anyone being at hand to halt it, and only the fact that the boiler had plenty of water kept the affair from resulting in perhaps a partial destruction of the building. In the manual training room the burglars looked things over, and did likewise in the kindergarten and music rooms. In all, five doors and locks were picked or jimmied, Sheriff Carl Dahlhauser reported. Reason A Mystery What possible motive the prowlers could have had In entering the building Is still a mystery. So far as could be determined by Super- ntendent Laurltzen and staff Monday morning, nothing had been ;aken and the damage was confln- cd to doors and locks, and the loss of a goodly supply of coal. Authorities called in made a close and careful examination but reported no clues which would indicate the guilty parties. muinder of the week were for fair with somewhat lower temperatures. Finish Digging For P. O. Basement Completion of the basement excavation for the new Algona post- office, cleared the deck* for the beginning of actual construction work. Tbare has been a report circulating tbat the rough elector work would be done this (all, and the AiOahwg of tb* job begun again next spring. burg held the undivided attention of the several hundred women j while she gave three dramatic readings. The address of the evening was given by the president of the Iowa Federation, Mrs. H. C. Houghton, Jr., of Red Oak. She chose as her subject "Yesterday Meets Tomorrow." She said the club women should make people conscious of the culture and leadership which Iowa has achieved. Too many still think the only resources are corn, hogs and fertile soil. She pointed out that last year Iowa was second in "Who's Who" and that she ranks high In providing national leaders, citing Miss Agnes Samuelson, past president of the National Educational Association, Superintendent Studebaker of Des Molnes, national commissioner of education, Ole Nelson, national commander of the G. A. R., and Ray Murphy, national commander of the American Legion. In her whimsical way, Mrs. Houghton said politically we now find ourselves to be the pivotal states and added "We are playing Juliet to all the political Romeos. Wo are being wooed. They tell us we ore headed for communism, anarchism and dictatorship. I don't believe it. Officiate Hold Reception Following the evening session an informal reception was held in the gymnasium. Those in the receiving line were state officers and county chairmen. At this function music was furnished by Glenn Raney, Mrs. McMahon and Mrs. Gunn. An art display had been placed in the gym, club books entered in the district contest and an exhibit of upland game birds loaned by the Iowa State College. Awards Made for Year Books Thursday morning the convention assembled at 8:45 and conducted routine business and reports. The state president held a club institute followed by 3-minute reports of county chairmen of the 8th district. Awards for the best year books were then made. In class A, the Manning Women's club was given first place on a two year program covering the subject, •These United States." In class B, the G. I. club of Randall on the subject, "Solving Social Problems through Parent Education" waa given second and Buffalo Center received first in Class C with a study on "Writers of Iowa." Vice President Speaks Mrs. Eugene Cutler, first vice president of Des Moinea, gave a talk on "Signs and Symbols." She has an excellent stage presence and handled her subject in a most original way applying it to the horoscope of life. Her dominant thought left with the hearers was: "Home is a place of peace where our burdana are lifted from us but where we are given the strength to bear them." At this session Carroll extended an invitation for the 1987 meeting which waa accepted. An informal ballot was taken for district fhfirmf". Mrs. A. D.

This report comes from the State Liquor Commission. A sizeable increase was reported from most of the Iowa liquor .stores, which is attributed to the fact the bootleggers are rupidly decreasing, and does not indicate that there has been more drink- iiiB. Moat of the old-time bootleg kings, like Capone and the liquor barons of prohibition days, are now in the penitentiary und the days of local bootleggers are numbered.

WITH ELECTION only two weeks away, county politics have warmed up considerably. Candidates have been busy day and night. The race between candidates attracting the most interest is that of sheriff, in which there are four c-undidates. Fred C. Gilchrist, republican candidate for congressman is believed safe. Phil Kohlhaas, democratic candidate for state representative from Kossuth county, entered the race only three weeks before election, and is running against Tice Brack of Ledyard. THREE PERSONS were injured early Thursday morning when three cars crashed on the paving north of Burt. E. R.

WOKK HAS begun on the new lumber storage building for the Botaford lumber yard. Lars Sorensen, who returned from Europe lately, reports to us an Interesting trip abroad. He visited in four countries, Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Germany. Mr. Sorensen was born In Denmark, but had not been there for 32 years. He has two brothers, two sisters, and 35 nieces and nephews still living there. Upon his arrival he was greeted by a wonderful reception. His relatives were at first rather skeptical about him as he drove a Chrysler automobile. The common automobile In Norway resembles the tiny Austin that is sometimes seen In the United States. The relatives thought him a millionaire but as soon as they learned that "he was not as big as they thought he was" all bans were down and they could not do enough to entertain him. In all homes where he was entertained, he received the beat of eats and drinks that the land could produce. Lars was accompanied by his niece, Mrs. Julius Peterson of Algona, and they attended many parties and dances. ' One occasion of interest and pleasure waa at the harvest feast at i'rae. The feast was held in ii .social hall that belongs to the farmers. The meetings and entertainments are for them, and for invited guests only. The first part of the evening began with the feasting, consisting of coffee cake, and pastry, and lasting two hours. Then different parties gave speeches. At eleven o'clock the dancing began and the party danced to a seven piece orchestra. There was both old fashioned and modern dancing. Each member of the social hall paid 25u, which took care of the entire entertainment. Mr. Sorensen and Mrs. Peterson started for homt September 29, and drove to Bremerhuven, Germany, from where they sailed October 2. They arrived in New York City, October 8 on the iurge steamer, Bremen. Th? Bowlers' Meeting A meeting of all bowlers will be held uguiii this evening (Tuesday), at 8 p. m., in the office of Wru.
