When he retired a year ago his business had grown to such an extent that he rented rooms on the second floor at 313 sixth Street and went into production on a modest scale. Takes role of fish. A then it was that i had to really Experiment and the first thing i did was to put myself in the role of a fish a explained the inventor. A i rigged up a Small fish bowl with a series of mirrors and j would turn out various types of lure place them in the bowl and decide which would be most attractive to me As a fish. I evolved total far below 1929. Estimates show that in the first half of the present year contracts were let for buildings valued at $1,100,000,000. That Gross is 58 per cent higher than the corresponding period of last year which in turn was 61 per cent higher than the 1933 comparative. But it stands Well below the total of $3,012,200,000 registered for the january june period of 1929. The most encouraging Hopes Are aroused by residential building. Experts significantly Point out that higher rents will make it cheaper to build. What i Call my a Frog Eye bait. I children and grown ups to go to. That the 2,472,359 units produced gave Many of them to fishermen friends who tried them out on Bass and Trout in All the Best known streams in this area. Those pictures on the Walls show the result a said or. Pugh pointing to photographs of Long strings. Sells rights to lure. The demand for the a Frog Eye bait was so great that or. Pugh soon found himself busier turning them out than he had been at the Bank. Cork was purchased by the sack from a Cincinnati Ohio Dis Are spending paid by member units of the or Tri Butor while the hair from a animation averaged $32 a week per employee. In the Spring of 1929 the average was $35. There is every indication the average of aggregate employment in the motorcar Industry Assem Bly plants body fabricating units and parts and accessories manufacturing companies a will rim higher this year than in 1929. In 1929 the Peak employment was approximately 520,000 and of the place there jibe average monthly roster was girls who would like 448,000 workers.

Why must the boys that go swimming in the Quarry take advantage Are Many to go swimming there too be j rage was 438,000. Most recent cause the Lake is too cold and the figures assembled for May this year showed 470,000 employed in the same lines.

N., Kearney ave would get action on readers9 ideas dear editor i find the column a what our headers say a very interesting even though no letter of mine is included therein some of the letters express really constructive Deas. However i am depressed by the fact that As a Rule these ideas never reach realization. I can recall Many Good suggestions for civic improvement made in turn to Page 7, column 1 which the legs Are made was obtained from Deer hide tanners in Michigan. Or. Pugh explained that Deer hair obtained from the tails and Manes is hollow holds air in the water and As soon As one of the a Frog Eye baits came to the attention of James Heddon sons largest producers of fish lure in this Section the firm sent a representative Here who obtained the rights to the new lure. The company will Call the bait a pop Eye a after the famous pop Eye the Sailor. Now that manufacture of his most popular lure has passed out of his hands or. Pugh says he will again put himself into the role of a fish and attempt to invent an even More tempting lure. Italian students will be taught to talk latin Rome. Our a when school opens this fall italian pupils will be faced with the unpleasant task of really learning to speak read and write latin Mother language of italians. That they will do it there is no doubt because Premier Mussolini has issued orders to make latin a a living and vital language in italian schools. Instructions recently distributed to teachers by count de vec Chi i Val Cimon minister of education said the system of latin instruction must be changed and students made to learn to handle latin like any modern language. Italians nurse the Hope latin May be revived As an International language. Already it is noted Many foreign students of Church schools in Rome Converse in latin. Clockers putting the Stop watch on the 1936 economic race at the half Way Mark generally Felt the country had taken some of the toughest barriers since the depression lows without a serious break in the recovery stride j War in Africa touch and go i threats to peace and recurring economic crises in Europe and at Home the worst floods of a decade distractions of a a a political year and prolonged debate on higher taxes All flashed past in a fast moving six months. Yet the end of a potentially disturbing period found automobile and steel operations highest in seven and six years respectively and markers of still depressed heavy Industry like freight car buying up 325 per cent Over the first half of 1935, machine tool orders 71 per cent ahead and building construction to the Good by 58 per cent. Market off temporarily. Even Wall Street its fingers necessarily More accustomed to counting the world pulse than other sectors came off Well in its contest with threatening outside forces buoyed by the steady surge of Domestic business life. A generally threatening european Outlook As observers awaited the late april French elections which resulted in a swing to the Radical parties and increased Wall Street fears of a French Gold embargo played an important part in touching off the first major share Price recession in More than a year. Equally a Factor in the Short but Sharp interruption to rising prices Stock Market observers generally thought was the duration and extent of the preceding Rise which induced Many holders to Cash paper profits. Stocks demonstrate resiliency. As the mid year approached however Stock prices had demonstrated their resiliency by almost wiping out the april break. The reputedly shrewd traders of Wall Street were showing their wariness chiefly in sharply curtailed activity in the markets. Department store sales topped the same period in 1935 by about 8 per cent and were about 32 per cent ahead of the worst depression Levels while some Large mail order and Chain merchandisers reported late Spring volumes As Best in their histories. America apparently took to the novel system of offering new automobile models in the fall instead of at the first of the year and with a fatter pocketbook added brisk Spring orders to an excellent autumn response. Farm income up. These and similar barometers of Public buying cleared rapidly under the sunny influence of a 12 per cent addition to Farmers income in the first half compared with last year to a total estimated at $3,200,000,000 against $2,957,- turn to Page 6, column 3.

By Hubert Johnson on the baked Plains of Western Kansas the Fleagle boys were transformed from shiftless but harmless Farmers to murderous bandits. By pretending they were innocent Farmers Ralph and Jake Fleagle evaded capture for almost a decade. The pair left Home As youths and worked for a time As strik Breakers on the san Francisco Streetcar lines. After the strike Jake wandered up and Down the Sacramento Valley taking part in the big crap games which followed the grape and other harvests. He served a year in Oklahoma on a charge of second degree robbery where he became a graduate of the University of crime. Jake and Ralph returned to the Kansas Homestead. Then a series of mysterious trips began from which they brought Home from $5,000 to $20,000 each time. Mrs. Fleagle told her neighbors that her boys had a sure Way of making Money in the Stock Market she did not know her sons led a number of desperate hold up gangs. Bank deposits grow. The Fleagle were novel in their method. Instead of using a single gang they recruited different gunmen for each Job during the crap game season. In these deluxe gambling contests the stakes often ran As High As $10,000. When there were no games to hold up the gang would loot a Bank. By 1928 the Fleagle Bank deposits had grown to amounts which aroused suspicion. The Fleagle family began to wonder about the activities of the two boys. Yet no one connected the pair with their crimes nearly half the Bank holdups in Kansas and several train robberies in California. But their Luck failed when they raided the first National Bank of Lamar Colo. Jake and Ralph were aided in this crime by Howard Royston and George Johnson Abshier a former Bootlegger. Official shoots Bandit. The four masked men were backing out of the Bank with their $218,000 in loot when a. Parrish aged president of the Bank leaped toward a concealed revolver.

He explained that he found the babies huddled by the body of their dead Mother alongside a curb and had placed them inside his shirt for warmth. The Mother Bird had been struck by a car. The sword of Conquest wielded by France and the Cross of christianity carried by the Jesuit missionaries opened the Way to the heritage that is Wisconsin today. Intrepid French explorers seeking a Gateway through Wisconsin to the riches of the Orient tapped instead the resources of the wilderness. The kindly Jesuit a Black Robes followed closely after them bringing the word of god to this wild country and taming the Savage spirit. The French Fleur de Lis the British Jack and the stars and stripes in turn have flown Over Wisconsin since the Day More than 300 years ago when Jean Nicolet nudged the tip of his Canoe onto its soil near Green Bay romantic history. Then followed years of romantic history in which Wisconsin saw a strange procession of men press through its forests tramp across its Hills and valleys and skim Down its Swift flowing streams in Birch bark canoes. Beginning this week end wish Consin retraces the imprints left by the sturdy pioneers and pauses to Mark the one Hundredth anniversary of its formation As g separate territorial government. Samuel Champlain governor of new France at Quebec eager to penetrate the mysteries of the Western wilderness sent Nicole to find the fabled a men of the sea in 1634. When Nicolet stepped ashore dressed in a gorgeously bedecked mandarin coat he was surrounded not by the asiatics he expected but by a tribe of Savages the Winnebago indians.

By this time French exploration had progressed to the Point where France could Lay claim to the territory. Accordingly in 1671, Francois de St. Lusson took Possession of the country for the French King Louis Xiv in a ceremony at Sault Ste. Marie. Eighteen years later Perrot repeated the ceremony taking Possession of the land of the Sioux or the upper Mississippi for the French King. Evacuation ordered. In 1699, however King Louie ordered the evacuation of All the Western outposts. As easily As the flighty restless frenchmen acquired the territory embracing Wisconsin just As readily they lost it making Way for the second regime of Wisconsin. Indian unrest grew about 1700 and with the Slaughter of a band of Fox indians near Detroit in 1712, hostilities began which lasted almost continuously until 1740, sooner or later every tribe in Wisconsin was involved either in Alliance with the Fox or with the French.
