The entire morning session was de- voted to speeches by state depart- ment officials on the various branches of work.

AuL FOUND NEAR COUNTY LINE Yolo county's mysterious, cattle- slaying fiend has appeared again. Twelve legs, found on the Arm- strong ranch just across the county line from the Davis Farm, bore mute testimony to the tragedy of Friday night. The carcasses had been re- moved. Sheriff Monroe and Clay Grove of Dixon joined forces in the investigation, but were unable to find sny further traces than has been the case in the past killings. This time the slayer stepped across the county line, killing the cattle on the Armstrong ranch, just south of the Agricultural Farm at Davis. Al- i though the crime was committed in Solano county, Sheriff J. W. Monroe of Yolo county joined forces with the 1 Solano authorities in an effort to find i some clue which will lead to the slay- er's capture. For the fourth time in a the cattle slayer has swooped down on some unsuspecting herd and left his 1 trail of blood and dead cattle. In ev- ery case, the methods have been the i same. The cattle have been killed by crushing their heads with a heavy club, and by cutting their throats. In some cases a hind quarter has been taken, but the majority of the slain cattle were left just as they. fell. Friday night's invasion, however, saw a new angle develop. The cattle had been killed, legs cut off, and then loaded onto a truck and hauled away. The fact that the carcasses had been loaded on a truck, indicates that the slayer has at least one accom- plice, sheriff's officers believe. All motive of revenge has been eliminated in the search for the slay- er. Jack Fernandez of Bryte was the victim on the first two appear- ances, and at that time a revenge motive was sought. But Tuesday night, the Harris Dairy Farm in West Sacramento was the scene of the slaying of two heifers. Fernan- dez lost a prize cow, five goats were killed and four kids stolen. With the revenge motive shoved into the background, sheriff's offi- cers believe that the killings are the work of a maniac who enjoys seeing cattle m death struggles. Movie Stars Miscast Is Claim But Lions Follies Care Not Stonyford Hunter Kills Monster Lion J. B. Hbhmann of Stonyford killed a female mountain lion, skin of which measured 1% feet in length. He also killed a brown bear, the pelt of which was eight feet long. He has sent the skins with a number of others to a Williams taxidermist to be made into rugs. Ilohmann captured the beasts on his big nnnual game hunt in Glenn county mountains, where he has one of the finest hunting lodges in the coast range. Bill Cormveli, manager of the Xational Theater, accused Tom Pugi of being cast in the wrong part o the Lions Club Follies to be presentee in the Woodland High school auditor mm March 20 and 21.
