This bill reduces the legal mileage from ten cents to seven cents a mile or a thirty per cent cut. It should result in a saving to taxpayers In the stave of from $100,000 to $130000 per year.

Special: Saturday Winfield Pelton Goes to the County Farm Winfleld Pelton is going to the coun ty farm to live. After owning a half section of land clear of all encumbrances and having some cash besides it is a pitiful thing to have to spend the remaining days of one's life in the poor house because of the erookedness of relatives and others who flimflammed him out of his money and land Pelton, who is 05 years of age has been living in a shack north of the Milwaukee tracks for the past six years) after leaving his farm near Corwlth. The county sent men' there to clean It out as It had been sold. They fouvci the rooms filled with old papers, books, tin cans and a multitude of trash, the accumulation of years. The dirt and grime wa/, beyond conception. The front room was filled to the ceiling i with trash.

While they were still here William Kirschbaum Just return- tag from church at Wesley noticed the other cars and was watching them when the bus coming from the west oil. •tarage: ^ , , --county, pr other public subdivision allows an employee for the use of his own automobile used In pub- lice service, a flat amount per month, ranging from $25 to $45. "3. A public official using his own car is allowed, the statutory ten cents a mile which pertains mostly to county and court business. -This bill deals only with the expenses involved in the ten cents per mile allowance. Abuses of Mileag-e. There are several reasons which have made it necessary to introduce ' and pass this bill. In the first place, unde the decreasing price level It is clearl demonstrated that transportation in a ordinary, automobile does not cost th oyvner ten cents a mile and really am ounts to less than seven cents per mil for the ordinary light car. At the ten cents per mile rate many officials re ceiving such compensation have ac tually made a considerable net prof i on this allowance in addition to the! salaries. Another reason for the necessity of this bill is the fact that the present mileage law has been and is being flagrantly abused. For example, while this allowance is merely supposed to reimburse the public official for the .actual expense of his car, in the serving of court papers, when numerous papers are served on one trip, a charge is sometimes made for the entire distance traveled from the court house to the place of service, for each paper. Another abuse commonly practiced is _when several county supervisors ride 'In the same automobile and each charges the county ten cents a mile for their trip, which obviously is far above the actual cost of running the B __•!-«*»> v «W*.. t#.. kSWAAW J.C11UC1, .

Therefore both houses because of these abuses and because of the paramount necessity for holding down public expenditures and plugging up tax leaks at this time, the present condition should be corrected. Sheriff Exccptcd. While the original senate bill included all public officals receiving the ten cents per mile allowance, the senal amended the bill to exclude sheriff and their deputies. This was don on the theory that sheriffs and de putles are required in emergencies t travel on all kinds of roads which woulc result in higher expense. However, th fact remains that much of the drivin by deputy sheriffs, especially !whei serving court papers, is no more ex pensive than the driving of a supervls or or other county official. Conse quently excepting sheriffs from the operation of this law as contained ii the senate amendment, ought to be stricken out by the house and the same mileage applied to the sheriffs.

Tuberculois is common in both humans and cattle and while the statement is made that no deaths by T B n Iowa can be traced to tuberculosis in cattle the fact remains that many reports show that where the diesasc has been found in herds it has also been found in homes where milk from diseased cattle was being used. Good Results in Kossuth. When testing was first'started in this county it was found that the percentage of cattle infected was as high as eighteen per cent in some townships After several years of testing and the removal of Infected cattle from the herd, it has been reduced to about one-half of one per cent.

This mileage expense of supervisors was only $198,000 in 1926 and has increased about $40,000 over 1926 which Indicates that it is high time that this mileage proposition was checked. A thirty per cent reduction resulting from cutting from ten cents to seven ,cents a mile would mean a saving of about $71,000 a year in supervisor's expense. The average mileage for county sheriffs is $140,000. If the sheriffs are Included in tails mileage reductlion there would be an annual saving of about $40,000.

Word was received in Algona las week by Mr. and Mrs. D. A. Teetei telling of the death of Frank Gilmore a former Algona man who has foi some time been living in California The letter came from R. L. Castile, a former Algona man, who farmed just west of Algona. Mr. Gilmore's death occurred April 1. He at one time iyed on the F. S. Norton farm where Chris Ault now farms. Before coning to Algona he had lived at Willams, Iowa. He is survived by his wife and some chifdren. He was about six- y-flve years old. a thirty per cent reduction would ai gregate a saving of about $10,000 year. The automobile expense of all coun ty engineers amounted to $83,000 i 1829. Some of this transportation ex pense is not on the mileage basis b" cause in some counties one or mor of the engineer's cars are owned b' the county. But most of this is on thi ;en cent mileage basis. Assuming tha two-thirds of this $83,000 auto expense n 1929 Is based on mileage, a thirty per cent saving would amount to abou" $16,000. There is very little transportatioi )aid by mileage in the state depart- nents as most departments own and operate their own cars. However, out »f a $15,000 mileage allowance for clis- rlct judges, there would be a saving f about $4,500. No records are available as to the illeage paid at the ten cents per mile ate to city officials, but it doubltless mounts to a large sum.

Mr. Anderson has lived in this coun try about fourteen years. He came here shortly after the boat on which lie was a sailor was torpedoed durln the World War. The boat was comin from Africa with a cargo of peanut when it was torpedoed about 160 mile south of Ireland. Two of the crew o twenty-one were drowned, but the oth ers were picked up by the Engllsl steamer, "Princess Russia," which took them to Coop Island on the south coas of Ireland not far from Tipperary The boat was torpedoed the Thursday before Good Friday in 1917 ancl the nineteen men were afloat in a sea of peanuts for thirty-eight hours before being picked up.

Thorough cooking of meat destroys the germs and there can be no danger of contracting the disease. Many flocks of poultry become Infected from following infected herds and the public should be cautious in selecting fowls for the market. The farmers, in some cases, are no doubt justified to some extent in opposing the present law for when a herd is found infected, those suffering the worst are killed and while the fanner is partially repaid, the loss in ioiiie cases, is considerable. At the jest, T. B. is a loathesome disease and no one wants to use either milk or flesh from an infected animal, even if thorough cooking will destroy the germs as has been stated.
