W. Monroe and imme- diately released upon bail furnished willingly by their friends. District Attorney C. C. McDonald's statement of the case is that the Rug- took a car to Sacramento to have repairs done, the bill amounting to some odd. The owners of the machine called for the car but did not have the money to pay for the re- pairs, stating that they had the mon- ey at home. The repair man refused to let the car go out of the shop until the cost of repairing was paid. The are alleged to have stated that it would cost some to hire a car to go to Woodland and suggested that the repairman send one of his men along to get the money. This was what was done.

RAY SMITH BUYS TRACT NEAR YOLO Charles Byrns, realtor of this city, has sold a forty-acre tract of the Geo. D. Zimmerman subdivision to Ray Ir- vin Smith of this county, who has en- tered upon the land and plans to plant it out this year. The tract is located a mile west of Yolo and is regarded as one of the best farming and or- chard prospects in the county. Other sales are pending through Byrns.

A small amount of rice was caught unhar- vested and as regards this it is not known whether or not it can be saved, not because of damage to the rice but because of the condition of the ground which absorbed the best part of the water. The outlook, says the Sacramento forecaster, is for clear and fair weather for some little time. "The says N. R. Taylor, metereolo- gist. "has moved inland and tonight is central Over Utah.

Jameson, who conducts a general merchandise store at Dunnigan. reported to Sheriff J. W. Monroe this morning that either Tuesday night or early Wednesday morning burglars en- tered his store there and escaped with some worth of mer- chandise, including a full box of shoes of varied sizes and makes. Other articles stolen included a valuable Savage rifle, cigars, silk stockings, hose, candy, a canvas coat and miscellaneous arti- cles. It is claimed that the bulk of the goods was too great to be carted away without the of an automobile or truck and it is assured by reason of the weight of the articles taken that more than two must have done the job. The Dunnigan postoffice, located near the Jameson store, was entered, the till looted of all the pennies it pos- sessed. Stamps and other valuables were locked up. The place was gen- erally ransacked by the burglars. I In both instances doors were broken I open. The burglaries are the same in ev- ery particular as those in Yolo recent- ly, when the L. Knight and B. Borach stores were broken into and robbed of close upon worth of general merchandise, including also shoes of all kinds and descriptions. Sheriff Monroe stated this noon that he had no clues on any of the bur- planes, but pretty certain to have information soon which would lead to arrests in connection with the whole- sale looting.

County Takes Over Public Health Office sup Because of the peculiar wording of the statute newly-elected officers in Yolo county are going to lose one week's salary hen they take office in 1923. All officers elected in Yolo county take office on January 6, 1923, because it is specifically point- ed out that they shall assume their duties the "first Monday AFTER the first of the year." The first day of January falls on a Monday and is INew Year's Day. Hence the first Monday after the New Year is Mon- day, January 8. It is probable that when George T. Kern takes office as district attorney he will serve in that office alone and without a deputy or assistant. The statute in counties of this class do not provide for an assistant and no salary is set aside for a deputy. Kern stated to the "Democrat" yesterday that he had not fully made up his mind, but that it was very probable that he would serve without an office force, the salary not warranting it K uo.3 unless a man had a growing civil Company, San Francisco seed a bucking horse during the "Days practice, such as with C.
