The number of burglarle reported dur
ing the last few days led the police to
suspect that a gang of professional crook
Is making Council Bluffs Its "hang-out"
for the time being. Chief Richmond Is
sued orders yesterday that the dragnet
be thrown out and that all undesirable
characters and all loafers without visible
means of subsistence be taken Into custody.
Shortly before midnight Thursday
Charles Claar, a special officer, noticed
two mm in the warehouse of the Empkle-ShuKAXt-Ilill

Main street. While Claar telephoned to
police headquarters H. F. Hobus, residing
at 218 Story street, who happened to be.
passing at the time, waa placed by Claar
to 'keep watch in front of the building.
In the meantime the burglar quietly, but
expeditiously, made their exit from a rear
window, from which a pane of glass had
been extracted and by which they evi
dently effected an entrance. I
When the police reached the place and
mada a search of the premises with mem
bers of the firm, who had been sum
moned, it was evident that the thieve
had been after firearms. The cases con
taining revolvers and rifles had been ran
sacked and the drawer containing cart
ridge had been overhauled. One revolver
found on a counter had been fitted with
cartridges of a caliber too large for the
weapon and had been discarded.'
It is believed the thieves were frightened
away before they secured any booty, al
though a complete inventory of the stock
would have to be taken In order to ascer
tain if anything was stolen.

COW PUMPKINS OR CHEESE KIND?
J a dare Wheeler to Deelde Whether
, Difference Meava Money.
Because the pumpkins which they raised
from seed furnUhed them by the Growers'
Canning company of Council Bluffs were
"cow" pumpkins Instead of ."large cheese"
pumpkins, Bllssard brother, gardeners
and fruit growers of this vicinity, are
plaintiffs In a suit against the Canning
company and the Younkerman Seed com'
pany ot thla city, the trial of which waa
begun before Judge Wheeler In the dls
trlct court yesterday. The sut was origin
ally oft the law docket, but by agreement
of both aide la being tried to the court
It 1 now up to Judge O. D. Wheeler to
give an expert ruling on pumpkin.
In 1908 Blizzard Bros., entered Into a
contract with the Growers Canning com
pany to grow pumpkin for canning pur
poses. It being part of the agreement that
the canning company should furnish the
seed. At the time that the plaintiff Vers
ready to begin operation the ' canning
company found itself short of seed and it
Is, alleged, directed the Younkerman Seed
company to furnish Blizzard Bros., with
the requisite quantity of "large cheese'
pumpkin seed, ' .
The seed produced a bountiful crop of
apparently fine pumpkins, but when Bliz
zard Bros., hauled the crop to the canning
company' factory, the foreman declined to
accept It on the grounds that the pump
kins were of the "cow" variety and not
suitable for canning purposes.
Blizzard Bros., were forced to haul the
pumpkins home again and not having a
herd of dairy cows to which to feed them,
the crop they claim was a dead loss.
. The Younkerman Seed company pleads in
defense that It sold the seeds without
any guaranty, that being the manner in
which all seeds are sold by all seed com
panies. Blizzard Bros., sue for $2.60.
