Stunned by the violent death of their prophet. Joseph Smith, and subject to constant attacks by their Illinois neighbors, the Mormons under the leadership of Brigham Young had promised Illinois officials late in 1845 to leave Nauvoo "as soon as the grass would grow" the following spring. Meanwhile they expressed a hope that their enemies would cease persecuting them During the winter that followed, Nauvoo became one great wagon shop and before spring hundreds of wagons were in readiness. The unusually mild weather led the first of a contingent of two thousand to cross the Mississippi in flatboats early in February, 1846. On February 15th Brigham Young, after crossing the Mississippi with several families, traveled nine miles to Sugar Creek in Lee County, where those who had crossed before him were encamped. Meanwhile the weather became extremely cold, the Mississippi froze over, and hundreds of Mormons crossed on the ice. Because of the bitter weather they were forced to stay at Sugar Creek until March 1st, suffering from cold and hunger. On February 28th the Mormons petitioned the Governor of Iowa, imploring his protection and influence while journeying across the territory. On March 1st, they broke camp, reached the Des Moines the next day, and forded that stream at Bonaparte on the 5th. Continuing westward through Van Buren, Davis, Appanoose, and Wayne counties, the Mormons made one of their most important "Camps of Israel" at Garden Grove in Decatur County on April 24th. Rain and snow, swollen streams and deep mud, impeded their progress so that almost three months were required to go half way across Iowa. START TO PRUNE FRUIT TREES SOON AS PLANTED Fruit trees left to grow in the orchard unpruned will reach production first. And they'll be larger. But they'll be shorter-lived than those trained from planting time. Harry Nichols, Iowa State College horticulturist, says it's best to train the tree during its first four or five years in the orchard, giving it its heaviest pruning at planting time. Then it should be pruned each succeeding year only enough to develop the desired framework. After the framework is developed, it should be pruned very lightly until it comes into regular production. Nichols says there are only two ways to remove wood from a tree: Cut off the end of the branch or remove the entire branch. In removing a branch, make the cut parallel and close to the branch to be left. Don't leave a stub. If the branch is more than three- fourths of an inch in diameter, it's best to use a saw to remove it. Usually it's unnecessary to protect small wounds made on young trees. But those more than an inch in diameter should be painted with a good pruning compound or a heavy paint containing no drier. Under Iowa conditions, priming's best done from February through early April. Summer pruning causes more dwarfing of the tree than early spring pruning. CARL FELLGER Preaching next Sunday at the Zion Lutheran church, Castalia, will be Carl Fellger, Rogers, Minn., a senior student at Wartburg Theological seminary, Dubuque. Mr. Fellger is a graduate of Wartburg college. Waverly. Obituary of Mrs. Floody. The community was greatly grieved over the sudden death of Mrs. Henry Floody. which occurred Sunday morning.

A fire of unknown origin swept through the interior of the Glenn Letchford blacksmith shop about 11:00 o'clock Monday morning. The Decorah fire department was notified, but the fire was under control before their ar rival. The fire caused the usual lot of excitement, but no damage is estimated. About the same time a bad chimney fire caused some damage nt the Lynn Halvcrson homo near here, known as the Hecker farm, now owned by Martin Halvcrson. The Postville fire department answered the call and this fire was also extinguished before serious damage was done. The chimney, however, was completely destroyed and will have to be rebuilt. Plan All-Pullet Flock For Extra Winter Profits The farmer who follows the nll- pullc! laying llovk program from start to finish should have extra profits to show for his efforts, says W. H. Whitfield. Iowa State College poultry specialist. The all-pullet program is aitned (it increasing production of both poultry meat and eggs while cutting production costs, It's as easy as it is profitable. First step is to start now by figuring how many pullets it will lake to fill the laying house next fall. AH old hens can then be sold before the pullets an- housed. Knowing the number of pullets needed, a fanner can estimate his baby chick needs. Whitfield says it's best to plan on from two and one-half tiv three .straight-run baby chicks in the piing to leave one good pullet in the fall. This allows for death loss and culling. Expand Brooder Space. Some farmers make the mistake of letting their brooder house space limit the number of chicks they buy." Whitfield says. "To make the all-pullet program successful, brooder house .pace should be expanded to make room for the number of chicks needed. One-half square foot of brooder house space is needed for each chick." Whitfield favors buying chicks early. General purpose breeds will do best if they are bought in February or March. The lighter breeds enn bo w,, chnsed in April or Mny. Early chlrt! mnke foster gains and suffer less It0Ia disease. Separate at Eight Wcvkx. When the chicks nre eight weeks old the program colls for a separation oj the pullets from the cockerels. pullets can be moved to a clean ran» men and the cockerels left i n fte brooder house. _ On the range, the pullets should 1* supplied with range shelters, comply with range feeders and range wntereri Feeders nnd watcrers of large capacity will lessen the labor needed to cat* tor the birds. The cockerels should be ready fc, market between /our nnd five monthi FINDS OLD PAPER. A. J. Sltzmann.
