The U930 GILMORE CHY 54 Twogood, Former Iowa Ath iete, Now Property of St* Louis Cardinals, Here, V1NSON ?LAYED GOOD FIELDING GAME, FOOT of Algonafe Regular Player* Wm Out of the Lineup, But the Others Made np for Them. Algona defeated Gilmore City Sunday at Algona by a score of 5 to 4. At the close of the first Inning it looked as though the game was going the way of the last five games when Oil- more City collected three runs on three hits and an error. In the fourth Inn- Ing Gilmore acquired another run on four successive singles. For the rest of the game the pitching and fielding • of the Algona team held Gilmore City to three hits. With a four run lead against them Algona kept pecking away as usual but this time fortune favored them and the team overcame the handicap to win. Algona scorcc one run in the fourth, one in the fifth and two in the sixth to tie the score During these three innings Algona hi safely four times, was given three walks, and with alertness on bases with a great amount of faulty catching it looked as though a win was possible In the seventh Inning the same old story of punch was needed but it wasn't punch they got it was the familiar lack of pouch. Baiter and Scan- Ian singled and each s3o3e a base to put than on itsM and second res- pccavdr with no crae oat. Then came Marty, Onsnrspsr and Twosrood to drive in a score to post tfee locals ahead but not one of Oie Staee could hit as much as a .aaaSf sacrifice, so the runners enjqywJ ffijamseJres by holding tight to the braes. In the ninth Inning Gilmore fflanssSened by putting two men on tosses, but a nice fielding play by Bcnhanj removed the threat. Algona put It over to the ninth. But ler singled to be forced by Scanlan who Lefty Kemp pitched a great game for Gilmore City. He IS credited with twelve strike outs, Kemp carries the *6pi!tatlofl of being the best pitcher in fowa outside of the leagues. Swanson Could toot-put the third strike past the Gilmore batters, but neither could they get any long hits from his deiiv* cries. Alfcona plays at Bancroft next Sunday.

Each girl Has her own equipment which includes beside her trunk and make up box, a small stool and two buckets. Seeing so many buckets around, one could not help but inquire for what they were used. The girls use them to do their washing and to take their baths. The girls are a thrift ty bunch, and do all their own washing, ironing,' and mending and make their own costumes. Most of the girls were busy at the time the tent was visited, but a few sat around chatting, waiting for the time to get ready to go on. A pet monkey was the mascot of the tent. Mrs. Sohn, her husbandl George John, and Patricia Salmon all sing in the opening pageant. Mrs. Sohn said she was busy finger waving the girls' hah- and making hate. She wore a beautiful blue angora blret, which she had made. Among the. bareback riders are Bessie Costello, Harriet Hougenie and the Hougenie family and Rose Wallet. There Is one lady clown with the troup. Her name Is Doodles Demarrs and she is one of very few'women clowns. The wire walker who performed in the center ring under the name of Alberta Beeson was none other than a man. The tight rope walking was done by a Japanese. Members of his family also did a contortion act. • Mends the Show's Clothes. '•'_,.

In any case it Is certain that T»*locatedithe,source of the smoke and IN THE past two years, many new Fords have been driven 50,000, 75,000 and even 100,000 miles. Everywhere the car has made an unusual record for reliability and economy. Following is a letter — ond among many received — from a salesman who travels long distances doily by automobile. • "I purchased a Model A Coupe May 8, 1928, and at this writing have run it ,75,888 miles. "After I had driven 44,400 miles, I spent $45.08 in repairs and at 61,000 miles had an additional amount of work done costing $25.60. My tire mileage has averaged better than 18,000 miles. "I am a traveling man and my territory is from northern Virginia to Macon, Mississippi, and from Knoxville, Tennessee, to the Atlantic Ocean.*' Similar tributes to the new Ford come to us daily from individual owners, from Federal and City Bureaus and from largo industrial companies having fleets of several hundred cars. They have found, as you will find, that the low cost of operation and up-keep on the Ford is even more important than the.low first cost of the car. In twenty, thirty, or fifty, thousand miles, this saving frequently amounts to hundreds of dollars. The quality that has been built' into the car is reflected in its good performance and long life. , See the Ford dealer and have him take you for a demonstration ride in the newt Ford. Give the car a severe test in traffic, on steep hills and on the open road. Check up on comfort, safety, speed, power, acceleration. Talk with. Ford owners and experienced garage men and note what they say about reliability and economy. Then you will know, from your own experience, that the new Ford brings you everything you want or need in a motor car at an unusually low price. /either impulsive* zeal' or deliberate , Intention poured onto the smouldering embers a mixture of beni zine and gunpowder, , A couple of weeks ago Mr, Shouse announced that ninety-nine republican congressional districts were to be made thfe scenes of vigorous contests by the democrats hi their struggle for the additional fifty-four seats they must capture in order to control the house. According to Mr. Shouse almost every dominant republican leader is to be forced to fight for his return to congress, not even excepting Speaker Nicholas Longworth. Neither apathetic spectators nor zealous rooters for the opposition seemed to flnd anything more in the announcement than the expected vehement, megaphone-waving gesture of a paid cheer-leader.

They are very*versatile, 'fllllng'tri* with many other acts when needed. 'It Is an old saying with circuses that when someone was needed to helplout that they could be found in clown alley. Mr. Shipley told abpjjt the winter quarters at Peru, Indlam. There everything for the circus is made by their own men with the exception of the canvas and wagon wheels. He stated that the winters quarters of the circus is a small town in itself. The circus starts out the latter part of April and ordinarily closes the last of October. Mr. Shipley said that this year has been the worst financially since he had been in the circus game. Mrs. Alice Sohn, who sang in the However, Mr. Shouse evidently started what promises to become the most intensive newspaper-radio political offensive in years. Over a nation-wide hook-up, the other night, he brought the fighting units of the two great parties face to face with a radio address exceedingly uncomplimentary—to put it mildly—to the "Hoover-Grundy tariff," republican "prosperity" and republican efforts at farm relief. * * » Typewriters were clicking at Republican National Committee headquarters before the accusing voice of Mr. Shouse had faded away in the millions of loud tpeakers tuned in on the National system, grinding out bristling replies for the morning papers. Representative Tllden of Connecticut, republican floor leader of the house, in a committee broadside denounced Mr. Shouse's ad- civess as "an amazing collection of half-truths, misstatements, abuse and ' ciiticism." * * * Senator Tydings, of Maryland, ehair- mnn of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, pointed out in a recent statement that with thirty- five senatorial contests this year a gain of ten seats would give the democrats control. In addition to the expected back-swing of an "off" yftar, the senator called attention to the crash in the crock market, the enactment of an unpopular tariff law, unemployment, r.m-elieving farm relief, business depression and a spirit of unrest attrlbut: j .b!e to the drought and the red tape in which proposed remedial measures ave enmeshed, as all contributing to impress the American people with the idta that it is a good time for a change. • * » On the other hand, repuublicans, yetting away to a late start on account of the long dispute over the national chairmanship, while expecting tho democrats to make something more than the "usual gains" In the backwash of the presidential landslide, will not pdmit that there is any danger in more than forty congressional districts, whereas it will take fifty-four republican upsets to deliver the house to the democrats, to say nothing of the ten senators the democrats must elect to control the senate. • * * In any case there would seem to ba so many uncertainties this year that the republicans are taking no chances snd are planning to aid candidates in districts seldom requiring help from the national organization. The reason for this is not alone to assure preservation of a working majority to support President Hoover's policies in the next session, but to avoid—and this is considered equally important—the psychological disadvantage house in the offing, of losing Every time the the [.the. season. .Season Closes This Week. 'Jrhlrhas been a poor season, for,the CJTUS, and It has run behind financially all the-time. For that reason the spason will close earlier than usu%l. The "performance was a .remarkable one. >The wild animal acts "Were th most sensational that have ever been shown ;i here. In addition to,the ani mat act put on by Captaini' ; -Bernard there was a performance of lions an tigers trained by Clyde Beatty, who is today considered the youngest am greatest wild animal trainer In all th world. His act is one of the principa features of the entire circus. A .good crowd attended the show in the afternoon but the evening attendance was rather light. party to power has lost the house in an off-year election since 1894 it ha lost the nejct presidential election. " In the meantime the indications ar that President Hoover has so much t do, confronted as he is with a situation such as few presidents • have ever been faced, that he cannot bother with th political claims of senators and committee chairmen. The rest of us may do the worrying, inspired with confidence or struck with fear, as the situation appeals to us. Just who is responsible for the unwelcome reappearance of turbulent Old Man Tariff in our midst Just when we had commenced to enjoy the menta ing of his absence has not Been determined. Some lay the blame at the door of Senator Swanson of Vircinia, who came forth with an array of evidence that the Hawley-Smool tariff is interfering with our foreign trade. It has, says the senator, pro- voKed reprisals in several foreign countries and probably will provoke more However, granting that his evidence is convincing, it's a far cry from this to the conclusion that congress ought to undertake another revision of the tar- iif without delay. Nothing of the kind is likely to be undertaken in the short session, beginning next December. * * * If the new tariff is unpopular, all the more reason why congress will not be disposed to tear it to pieces and make it over. It would be argued at once that such an undertaking would only amount of repetition of the "un- ceitalnty" which always attends prolonged debates on the tariff, suposedly harmful to business. It would seem that the only safe way of making changes in some of the extreme rates is through the tariff commission when it is appointed and gets to work—if it ever does. • * > When President Garfield was a member of congress he once said: "I am for protection which leads to ultimate free trade. I am for that fr«e trade which can be achieved only through protection." If that doctrine is correct, there are many who wHl agree that the Hawley-Smoot law is certainly designed to make many converts to it. In any event, there is no doubt that tariff was the center of attention in Washington this week and furnished virtually all of the commotion .which followed Jouett Shouse'a formal open- Ing of the fall campaign.

This was also the closing meeting of a contest which has been running in the society durin? the year based on attendance, scripture verse for roll call and collection.

It was after banking hours and, ascertaining,that Mr. Butts was in a rear room of the bank, he went to the back door. Mr. Butts had never met Mr. Bonnstetter and did not mow who he was. After considerable questioning and an examination of Alex's pockets for firearms ,he was finally let into the bank. Bankers have reason to be v«ry careful about robbers these days.
