Good'Hope, August 19. Special: Since these items written last week hog cholera has continued to spread and has attached itself to several other herds ,in this community. The worst hit however, are the James Knoll and Ferd Albright herds, the former numbering forty-six and the latter between sixty and seventy hogs around one hundred pounds to weight. There wlB be an almost total loss in these two herds, but the thing that impresses' us most is that the owners are taking their losses smilingly like the "good sports" they are. If the swivel-chair experts who tell the world on every occasion how much money the farmer Is making and that he wouldn't have any trouble if he would stay at home and work, had the Jolts of hard luck that th0 average farmer has, tney would take the advice offered Job by his wife literally and "curse God and die." Local Boy Won Boxing Match. Clarence Phillips, of Algona, was victorious in a boxing match at Tltonka Indian Pay. "Pinkie" Lewis of Des Moines was the opponent. He offered a purse for any one wh,o would stay with him four rounds, which Phillips did. Another bout was arranged afr ter tnat one with the same contestants and Philips knocked out Lewis in the third, round, Phillips has made quite s reputation as a fighter around here and his fiends look to see hinj get up In the running in $ie heavyweight class in T — -,- . -., ,!if t V", •> 1 A,great many Algeria,people attended the Indian,.Daylcrfefetipn at p<r, tdnka last Friday, and'Itf was estimated by some that the crowd numbered as high as ten thousand people. Two ball games, two or three airplanes, dancing, wrestling and many street sports served to entertain the big crowd, many of whom had attended the celebration since it was first made a yearly event twenty-eight years ago. Mayor Lee O. Wolfe was as usual the main spoke on the reception, committee and made it his business to personally see that all visitors had a good time. Mayor Wolfe, who has been at different times president of the school board, banker, postmaster, Justice of the peace, editor and member of the state legislature from Kossuth county, is one of the best known men in the county and is always ready to fight for his home town. He has been the editor of the Titonka Topic for the past thirty years. Prof. Fritz Granzow, of Algona, headed the boys and girls band of Bancroft in furnishing the music, he being their instructor.

Butts, cashier of trie Exchange State Bank of Wesley, resigned Friday as administrator oi the estate of Amandus A, Studev. He had been administrator/of the estate since October, 1925. It seems that he paid somo claims which are not filed with the county clerk and the estate raised the question whether the payments were wrongful and asked for his removal. When he resigned he waived his administrator fee and paid 53,000.00 as a settlement. This -was all done outside of court and it is understood that a new administrator will be appointed soon. O. T, Olsons Move to Fort Dodge. Mr. and Mrs, O. T. Olson moved on Friday to Fort Dodge where they will make their home.

The Bank of LuVerne at LuVerne, Iowa, was held up and robbed about nUne-forty this morning. Two men crime into the bank and ordered President Scott Hanna, his sister Consuclo, and Arthur Hot, both of whom work in the bank, to lie-face down on the floor while they took up the money. Both of the robbers had revolvers and kept talking about machine guns m a car outside. The men were thought to bo masked. The car was an om Chevrolet coach which bore one license, which was Issued for a Ford rp&dater a Kossuth county number, 65-3801. which was Issued for a oFrd roadster belonging to John Knapper, of BiJtfW- lo Center.

One wore a blue shirt and no coat. One-otTOe btm- dits kept telling the othbr one to take his toe as he 6 seemed quite nervous. It was the opinion of Mr., Hanna. thatj the men were amateurs.

Special: A Mr. Edwards, who lives north of Lakota, was driving in Minnesota last week and picked up a woman and four children walking. The oldest child was a boy about ten years old and she youngest was about two and was being carried by the mother. They were on their way to Albert Lea, Minnesota. They had been living in South Dakota, but after the woman's husband died about 'two years ago they lost everything and she was on her way to Albert Lea to find work. She did not want to lose her children and because of her great mother love was willing to walk all that distance in order to find work so that she could keep the family together. Mr. Edwards gave them a ride as far as he was going. When they were getting out of the car he gave the little boy a dollar. The lad looked up at his mother and said, pitifully, "Now we can have bread can't we, mother?" A mother and family such as this one deserves a better fate than the one they are experiencing. Girls Claim Tree Sitting Record Here. Betty and Jean Murtagh and Frances Barker tried the tree sitting stunt Monday when they climbed into an old apple tree at eight o'clock and sat there for ten hours and flfty minutes. They now claim the record in Algona for tree sitters, having stayed up about a half hour longer than Owen Mathes and Jack Streit, who remained in a tree in the Mathes yard for about ten hours.

This act is on a high rigging and consists of two men and one lady. They stand on their heads on the very tip of the swaying steel pole and follow this feat with others just as daring. This to turn Is followed by a spin in loops, using a large and one smaller trapeze. This feat is considered the most daring ever witnessed, and has never been attempted by any other aeriallst. The Randow Trio will furnish the fun. They are a bunch of famous eccentric acrobats who tear through a performance and guarantee to cause a hysteria of laughter. At the famous Circo Pubillmoes, Havana, Cuba, where they played during the past winter, it was the only act that stopped the shpw. , , In Gordon's dogs, the canine act de luxe, supertralned animals enter into the entire spirit with aptness and rare intelligence. Fifteen thoroughly trained canines compose the actors in Gordon's troupe. One particular number that is certain to prove a hit is where ten dogs dressed to represent little men and women do the latest ball room dances. The waltz, tango, fox trot, and do the doggiest kind of hesitation glide, keeping perfect time to the strains of the bund. This is an act that is bound to please everybody, young and old alike.
