S* Discharge Here Several county newspapers and the Associated Press carried •toriea last week regarding one Melville B. Wagner, reported as having been killed In action in the World War, after enlisting at Algona, and now discovered to be living in Kansas. Wagner was said to have come from Lone Rock, before enlisting, and bis wife was reported to have received word of his death from the war department. A reporter assigned to the case for this newspaper was unable to piece together what may be the true story of this interesting affair. There is a Melvin E. Wagner listed in the court house soldiers' discharge records, who received an honorable discharge from the service on March 10, 1919, after serving in France. He was reported as never having been wounded. If this is the same man, how would the war department report him dead in 1918, and give him an honorable discharge In 1«19, and why would anyone think he was dead with the discharge on the record book? Neither does there seem to be any trace of a Mrs. Wagner living at Lone Rock, although assessor's records have been checked. Anyone having any definite information regarding this interesting case is asked to communicate with this newspaper. Classified Aids for Sale FOR SALK—Purebred Hampshire boars.
