Only the lights in the residential section will be turned out, while the electroliers of the tausness section will be kept burn- Ing. More than 100 years ago German journalists also condemned street lighting says a recent advertisement for Liberty magazine. Six points mentioned: Theological (as blasphemous since God divided the light from darkness); Judicial (People should not be compelled to pay for gas they do not want); Medical (The emanations of the night were injurious to health and people would stay out late and catch cold); Moral (Fear of darkness would" frighten horses *a'nd embolden thieves); Economical (Great sums would have to be sent to foreign countries for gold). Only tbe last consideration was given thought by the council as they sweltered in the record heat, as turning out tbe lights would cut about $40 a month from the town budget. Hurriedly the council allowed a few bills, discussed the local economy shortly and adjourned and sought respite from the beat.

County Chairman C. R. Warren presided. Rev. Pettit of Hillsdale and Pacific Junction led the stnglnK with some pep songs written especially tor the occasion* placing the audience In a flne mood for the business of the session. Reports from the different townships weTe received showing that already a large amount of work had been done and that a lot more wa» expected to be accomplished this week in lining up the dry voters and seeing that they had opportunity to get to the polls. It was pretty well brought out that the great big Job ahead was to get out the vote. This Is especially true of the rural vote which Is largely dry. The drys lost in Indiana through the very light vote cast In the country precincts. • This election which was called through wet influence, was called for June 20 because Us sponsors realized that June 20 was a very busy time for the farmer and many of them would hate to leave their work to go to the polls. One of their workers or lobbyists was heard to say: "This Is the best time to have this election because the farmer will not leave his work to go to vote." Well, we believe Mr. Wet was mistaken. The farmer, as a class, is the most patriotic ot all American citizens, and In a critical election like this he Is going to take the time to vote it the matter is presented to him right. We are counting big on the farmer vote In Mills county. The need ot funds by both the state and county organization was stressed and a liberal collection was taken. ,Mr. - Jljpley, chairman , of. the, Maalvi&M JWtWtWnlftfrtttt **•»**rflt-JtVflfftwtift* 1 at Masonic Service Fraternal Group Attend* Evening Church in Body Members of Silver Urn Masonic lodge attended church in a body Sunday evening as a special service was arranged for them by tbe ministers of the Malvern churches.

Mrs. Zelma Fletcher played ber accompaniment. Building his talk around tbe thought, "The stone which the builder rejected has become the corner stone of the temple," Dr. White showed the relationship of Masonic tenets and religious principles, "Christ," he told his auditors," must become the corner stone of every sound human temple," The meeting was well attended by Masons and others, .

Malvern Cleaner* Take on Additional Help Thi* Week Increase .in business necessitated the addition of one man to the force of the Malvern Cleaners this week. Bob Bills of Tabor was taken on as driver for the routes which the firm covers. * Percy Atkinson, who cared for the routes before, will now work in the plant, assisting with the cleaning and pressing work. The addition to the force just doubles the size of their staff since Mr, apd Mrs. J. M. Elchelberger took over the management of tbe cleaning plant.
