The accident occurred about ten-thirty p. m. on the northeast corner of the court house square, Virgil was driving east on his way out of town and Mantor turned the corner on Thorington street lust as he came onto the corner. The crash attracted the attention of Marshall Green and Marshall New- vllle came tip about the same time. Schrader was arrested by Marshall Newville and taken to the Algona Jail where he was held all night without any charge being preferred against him. Although Virgil's father, O. H. Schrader, and several friends were In Algona a couple of hours after the accident, Algona officers would not admit the young man to ball that night. The following morning 0. H. shrad er and Mayor C. O. Bailey Interviewed Marshall Newvllle before the hearing In the mayor's court and understood tha the charge brought against Virgil would be reckless driving. However, when the case was called before Mayor Albert Ogren, the charge was "driving a motor vehicle when intoxicated."

Filo Poarch was the defendant in a libel suit brought by E. G. Bowyer. The suit was for $2,000 and was brought because of an article which appeared in the Bancroft Register of which Poarch was foreman. Everyone was • slightly In the dark as to which item was the cause of the suit, whether it was one telling of the plaintiff's difficulty over his light bills or one intimating that Bowyer was a prohibitionist. Some of the county exchanges Intimated that the article in question injured Bowyer's chances for the nomination for sheriff, and was sufficient cause for the action. grand jury and fixed his bond at $500. Schrader said he was not Intoxicated I and there is some supporting evidence to this fact, although he was alone at the time of the accident. Mantor's car, a new Chevrolet, was somewhat damaged, one fender being broken. He was turning around at the corner and Schrader said the lights blinded him as he approached. He admitted driving rather fast, but there was no liquor found in his car nor on his person. Accidents happen every day and this was one that might befall anybody. Virgil has always been a nice quiet boy, well behaved, and it would seem that Algona authorities may have bee a little mistaken in pressing such serious charge. Because a man has perhaps had a drink Is no indlcatlo that he is Intoxicated nor is breath smelling usually considered sufficlen evidence to convict. Seek Befit Way of Fighting Bindweed ^The least,Is known about killing European bindweed, a weed which la becoming especially serious In north Western Iowa, of any of the Importan Weed pests of towa, according to R. H Porten extension specialist of lowi State College, who Is aiding Iowa farm era in the weed eradication campaign adopted as part of the 1930 program by most county farm bureaus. Ah Important factor hi eradicating the bindweed is to keep down top growth. In the absence of a better method, Which probably can be recom mended after tests now being conducted are completed, the following system Is recommended to Kossuth county farmers Who are bothered with the weed on their farms. A field infested with bindweed should be seeded down to clover, says Mr. Porter, and pastured With sheep. The clover should be followed with corn for two seasons. A spring tooth or ordi nary harrow should be used on the ground before planting the corn. After planting the crop, the field should be yilnd plowed and harrowed. It should be cultivated often with a surface cultivator to keep the weed down. Lambs run in the corn In the fall will keep the bindweed eaten off. Clover should be re-seeded and the same system repeated, suggests Mr. Porter. In southern Iowa two crops of small grain, wheat following oats with the sweet clover seeded In the wheat may be used. In other states sodium chlorate sprays have been used successfully and probably will be recommended In Iowa in small spots after tests have been made by Iowa I State College.

GAINS 15 POUNDS THROUGH USE OF MODERN KONJOLA Lady Eagerly Endorses New Medicine That Brought Health to Her. - MBS, GEORGE PASSMOBE. "I was in a badly run-down condition for months and lost over forty pounds," said Mrs. George Passmore, 1304 Douglas street, Ames, Iowa. "My meals did me no good and I was very nervous. I tried every medicine and treatment that I thought would help but nothing seemed to do mo any good. I had begun to think an operation would be necessary. About this time friends told me about Konjola. "Before I had completed the first bottle of this medicine I knew that it was helping me. Up to this time I have used four bottles and I am able to say that this medicine has done me more good than all the other medicines and treatments combined,! I have gained 15 pounds In weight, I can eat what I wish without discomfort and I sleep well at night for the first time in months. • I will always be glad to tell any one about Konjola."
