' CITY TO CONSIDER AMUSEMENT PLANS BY OPTOMETRISTS Boosters for Golf Links and Park Concerts to Present Demands. PUZZLE FOR COUNCIL Lack of Funds Will Make Compromise Necessary to Settle Dispute. The council will be asked next Tuesday to decide whether It avors band concert! In all of the narks and playgrounds or olf at Waveland and Grand View. At that time it will open bids for the upkeep of the public golf links. Representatives of the golfers of the city, favoring the expenditure of park funds on the links, and of the Chamber of Commerce, favoring the expenditure of more park money for concerts, will he present. Unless the council is able to make some radical economies it will be necessary either to put it up to the colters to pay for the maintenance of the links or to abandon an extensive musical programme and be content with a few .Sunday concerts. Last year the council spent a total of S.1.$75 on the golf links. Of this amount, 12,150 was expended at Waveland and $1,526 at Grand View. William McMurray had the contract for Waveland, and Thomas Edwards for Grand View, and the system waa very satisfactory The council will iprobably decide to let the work by contract rather than do It by day labor, In the event It decides to bear the expense this year. Only $850.75 was spent last year on concerts, principally on Sundays, and In the big parks, such as Greenwood, Union and Grand View. The business men advocating the extensive band concert programme do not attack the Idea of spending money to keep up the gol' links. They admit that there are hundreds of golf flayers who are benefited as a result of the expenditure of the park funds for the upkeep. But they say there are thousands who might be benefited by tha band concerts. They want it arranged so that during each week there will be concerts at auch places as Nash square.

C. K. Wilson in the Marshalltown Times-Republican: There is a historic barn near Kldora on the big farm once owned by C. F. Clarkson, father of the well known Des.

Once after a large number of cattle had been finished for market there was still about 40,000 bushels of corn left In the cribs on the farm.

Retail jewelers are not receiving the prices that they should get, according to J. H.

In fact, the Jewelers do not realize as much profit from their business as other lines of trade. "I want those who are not getting living profits to go home and reorganize their selling system as fast as possible. We need it. We must have It and It is our Just due. Look at the socalled high cost of living. Are you responsible for It? No. Are you getting your share of the high prices? I should say not. Wages Much Higher. "I have been In the retail Jewelry business for twenty-five years and we are cleaning watches at IL.V), just as we did twenty-five years ago. The watchmakers or repairmen who received $15 a week then, -are getting $35 a week now. At that rate, we should be getting $2.0 for cleaning and we should charge for other repairs In proportion. You are paying more rent than you did twenty-five year ago. Labor of all kinds is higher, and manufacturer are grinding us down on profits on our goods. Living and taxes are higher." The Jewelers also held a general discussion of questions of Interest to the members of the association. Among them was the Owen-Greke bill regarding the fraudulent stamping of time guarantees In gold filled cases. To Diw uss Hteveng Mill. The Jewelers will have full sway at the convention today.
