Livermore Gazette: When Lawrence Degan was being taken to the penitentiary at Stillwater following his conviction for robbing the Judson bank in Minnesota who gave the sheriff a note book that proved him to be one of the men who robbed the Bank of LuVerne last August. In the book was found a page headed the Bank of Lu- Verne. Below was gvien a diagram of the roads leading out of the town and a fcot note, "Two men and a woman," ' • • ferrine apparently to the employees INCOME INCREASED.' c °, f i the ^ ™ s mue b °° k cntly removes all doubt but that De- igan'was guilty of participation in the I LuVerne robbery.

They then drove out of town, where it is reported that the other man informed Degan that unless he went Poultry Should be Marketed Now to Leave Proper Room for Laying and Breeding Slock. (By E. R. Morrison, County Agent.) Many Iowa poultry raisers are keeping some form of records on their flocks to enable them to produce eggs and poultry more efficiently and economically, thus making more profit per bird. Flock owners who use the calendar records indicate that they have been able to improve their poultry management methods in many ways because the records showed wherein their system was faulty. Weighing the feed, installing lights in the poultry house, culling the flock more closely, feeding a balanced ration and laving mash the year round, installing a straw loft in the poultry house and securing a pocd local market for fresh, Infertile efjrrs are some of the Improved practices adopted by one record keeper.
