Emmetsburg Democrat, The (Newspaper) - August 6, 1924, Emmetsburg, Iowa VOLUME XL KMMETSBUEG, IOWA, WEDNESDAY, AUGUST C, 1924. THEY FOUND VOSS AT ROCKFORD, IOWA Deputy Sheriff and C. A, Baird Had Lively Ex- perience. Deputy Sheriff Ray Hilton and C, A. Baird, landlord of the Waverly hotel, arrived home from Rockford, Iowa, last evening after a somewhat sensational experience with K-erl Voss, who lives at that place. It seems that in February Voss came to Emmetsburg and, driving into the country, .bought worth of hogs. "When it came to delivering them, he sold them to Will Laughlin of this city. Mr. Laughlin made an offer of S6CI for them, which was accepted. In writing out the checks, he made take in his calling in life. He con- siders him the equal of Billy Sunday and thinks he ought 'to 'be in the field as an evangelist. The meeting was held in the opera house. Mr. Luse has been very busy during the sprhi and summer mouths delivering Speeches on the corn subject. He tells us that eight out ever" n1 farmers he meets are in favor of Sen- ator LaFollette for president. .WANT GAMES OF KITTEN BALL Will Be Something Doing Every Night Attracts Much At- tention At a meeting of the captains of the Kitten .Ball teams held Monday it was decided to play one game an eve- ning from now on and the game to start at prompt.

He was also owing at a hotel at Mal- lard. In -March, Mr. Baird swore out a warrant for his arrest but it seems the. sheriff of Floyd .county hesitated about taking charge of the offender, who is said to 'be a rather trouble- some fellow. The marshal of the town also neglected to arrest him. When Deputy Sheriff Hilton and Mr. Baird went to Rockford a day or two ago, they were told that Voss was at home but that, if they were not care- ful, he might give them the slip. When he catered his room, he took Hilton for a live stock buyer and shook hands with him. Mr. Hilton notified .him that .he was under arrest and Mr. Baird put on the handcuffs. Voss stepped into a neighboring room say- ing that he wished to change his clothes. He slammed the door in Mr. Hilton's face and Mr. Baird rush- ning the Court House Rats will play ALGONA AOTO IS BABLYjMSHEii A Man and Two Women Are Hf illorl .WWHJ.JUWI CXV AX1VX" ington Crossing.

Sunday was a great day for the Lu- theran people of Midland Heights. The realization of plans iaid years ago 'became a reality by the securing of a pastor for the congregation there, the Rev. 0. R. A. Tollefson of Em- metsburg. After a selection .by a junior or- chestra, the congregation joined in singing a hymn. The installation service proper then took place. This was conducted by the Rev.
