Then- article Is : as foUows: • . > "Burl's police force was exercising a ereat.amount of authority Sunday ev- eningly stopping all passing motorists on the', paving. Some Bancroft driver had .driven through the streete_of Burt at avspeed not in line with the laws idea ofsane motoring and having taken the driver's number and being pf the opinion that the car had gone south, halted all north bound cars for a considerable length of time to hopes that the miscreant might be brought to justice. .Little did it occur to this copper that with the driver's number lie could more readUy have called him or her Monday morning and .brought them into court. Instead of this more.prac- tlcal method, he undertook to, coare the wits'of eyery north bound car during the evening and cause many people to most hearttiy .curse 'the town'.that pays his mqnthly stipend. Jt_ls well and good, that the officer be.faithful to his trust but from the, high handed manner in which he handled traffic that did not even enter the town of Burt, one was of the opinion that a most serious crime had been committed and that the arm of the law was Teaching out all along theJlne, Burt being but one platfe where the officers were at work. It would seem that a speeder was of great" importance, Jf the case could not await until Monday morning when no one need be" inconvenienced, other thansthe guilty party." . ^ The fact af the matter is this, A car coming east on the paving between Algona .and Mason City was run into and , -.

Apparently the most economical and cheapest method on large patches Is that practiced, on the R. A. Haglund farm ne'ar Swea City where two crops of com were followed by heavy seeding of alfalfa. WhUe the second crop of hay was being taken from the field last week very few thistles could be found among the stubble and those found were generally weak and small. Similar reports on alfalfa as a smother crop have come from Phil Buffington of Buffalo; township; Otto Westling of LuVerne and many others. Albert West of Ledyard varied this method by seeding sudan grass two successive years as a smother crop. Two or three years' of cultivated crops such as corn or soy beans using a surface cultivator or similar shovels on other makes; followed the next year by early variety of small grain and summer fallowing after grain is removed, then seeded to alfalfa in the fall or use of sudan grass as a smother crop for two years, shows no loss of crop and perhaps a minimum of extra labor.

We believe if the editor.of the Bancroft Register had been in the shoes of the man from Badger, Iowa, who had his car so badly demolished, Bald editor would have sounded the praises of Burt's "small town copper and the other officers who assisted in the capture and punishment of the criminal.

The Algona Country Club golfers have tried the little course out and get a lot of fun out of the trick plays. Roy McMahon, who plays a good game of golf on the club course, parred the pony course early, making the eighteen holes in forty-five. The game Is played with putters and golf balls furnished by the management. Those who have seen the pony golf courses of neighboring cities say that the Algona course Is ahead of most of them.

(By County Club Agent Thorngren). Preliminary tryouts for the county livestock judging team to represent Kossuth county at the state fair will be held Wednesday, July 23. All club members having livestock projects are eligible to compete. Some of the younger boys with no club experience will probably be at a disadvantage in competing for the team. Nevertheless the training should be t valuable and it will give them a much better opportunity to make the team in following years. At the state fair contest two classes each of horses, beef cattle, dairy cattle and hogs will be Judged. Kossuth county wUl also be represented with a grain Judging team. Tryouts for this team will be announced at a later date. Last year our grain Judging team composed of Willie Moore, Orville Thorson, Lenus Peterson and Maynard Jensen, all of Swea Oity, placed sixth In the state competition. We had no livestock team. Plans for five dairy demonstration teams are now under way. Demonstrations at the county fair will be given on fitting and showing dairy calves; production of clean milk; judging and pedigree selection; eliminating cream separator losses; cow test association and feeding. The demonstrations will each be conducted by two boys. They will be 15 to 30 minutes in length. The winning demonstration team will represent Kossuth county at the Waterloo Dairy Cattle Congress this fall. The Lakota dairy calf club held its tour on Thursday of last week.
