It was pretty good corn too and amounted to 2,600 bushels in round numbers. It was a gracious .deed and we venture to say that the men got' almost as much fun out of getting together and doing this good deed as they would have attending a rodeo or a football game or any other big game amusement, The. ladies too were in on the day, as usual, and proceeding to the home of Louis Bass they pre- prepared and had ready to serve when' the men came in with their loads, one of those big dinners for which that neighborhood is famous—that was 1 '-another place fitmett It Milter te f*f**nl« at f«f» Start* , 2S fs&at the otic* of the e1«tk of tfc« district court. 1.

And thirty days from now we taay be permitted under the law to quote w&at the governor says about the extra session he is responsible fof; atkd again, maybe the law Will not permit as to print what he says. No governor ever had an extra session between political campaigns and lived to be proud of it. Why did the governor call this extra session! He told the newspaper men at Iowa City in October that it was for three things: First, to deal With the tax question; second, to adopt some sort of a liquor taw in place of prohibition; third, to plan and take care of relief for the needy this winter. Most people may say the first ttlght wen have watted a year; others tnay say we would be better able to form a workable and popular Hqnor law a year later, With the regular session. The third proposition was with as a year ago and is with ns yet — and will be with us a year from now, tf the session is confined to the three matters mentioned, how ever, Iowa Will be lucky. The fact of It now is that a Senate which is Republican by a majority of two has replaced the Senate of a year ago which had a Democratic majority of one, due to some special elections called to fill places made vacant by members who deserted the legislative halts to take places at the pie counter!

A resolution permitting them to check expenditures was passed as a result.

Thorpe Diggers to Start Local Well Expect Equipment in This Week to Fulfill Water Contract Into Malvern this week will come equipment and workmen .from .Thorpe Bros., well company 1«ft«J&«OlneslttOifttlfll^ ' will start a well from which the company will furnish water for 6 cents per 1000 gallons. Well to be made is of gravel type and is expected to furnish the town a permanent supply of good water. After locating a suitable site, by means of test holes, the company will sink a shaft to the necessary depth, and then pump in loads of gravel around the shaft, The gravel is expected to act as a filter for the water and to keep a sufficient supply around the pump heads. For this supply the council will pay Thorpe Bros, the fee stated above, or should they decide to purchase the well, they will do so at a price agreed upon after tbe well is finished, As soon as a suitable well la located and made, the council will install pumps and other necessary equipment and obtain tbe town supply therefrom.

At that time the antl-pieketers, led by Frank Bufflngton, president of the Milts County Law and order society, forced a large group of pickets who were guarding the Piattsmouth bridge, to retire and permit a number of trucks to go through to the Omaha markets. While farm strike violence has been evident since around Sioux City and in Wisconsin and Minnesota, none has occurred in this county. The Law and order association has further organised to insure keeping the roads open but pickets have not appeared to prevent this. Excitement in Olenwood was at a high pitch Tuesday evening when the tire siren was sounded and cltlsens and members of the Law and Order group In that vicinity rushed to the city square armed with pick handles and similar weapons. The siren was to have been used to call them to action but Tuesday it was for a tire and not for assembly. Practice Begun on Christmas Concert by Choral Society Mr*. F. R.
