Interesting Items taken from the flics of "The Graphic." publlshi-d In Thursday. April 30, 1896. William Kluss has begun the erection ' of a new house. John Schultz is put-j tine in the foundation. Ray Schuler is , the carpenter. | Blossoms on apple and plum trees • are beginning to show their color. It : will not be long before the air is I laden with the rich perfume. j Hugh Shepherd and Anton Stockman have tapped the Lawler street main and adopted city water. This should be done by every householder. McClintock & Waters have a new dray, all but the wheels, on the streets. It is a solid piece of work in the truck builders' line, and is painted a bright green. At the Lutheran church meeting, the Rev. Schumann of Milwaukee was chosen the new pastor by a majority of 34 votes over the Rev. Lorenz of Dennison. Company I. 1st I. N. G., will be inspected at Armory' hall in Waukon on Wednesday night, and the boys are polishing up their accoutrements accordingly. For the first time in years, people tell of having water in their cellars. | R. N. Douglass got more of the aqua than he wanted under his store, because the drain had become choked up during the long drouth. "The Temple of Fame." given by the local talent last week, was one of the most successful and enjoyable entertainments ever given here. The receipts were about $75 and will insure a solid replenishing of the reading room library. Postville, the town with the big water reservoir, is progressing. On Monday there arrived here one Fong Chong from the Chinese kingdom, who has established himself in the building formerly occupied by Eugene Stockman, where he is conducting a Chinese laundry. Fong Chong was at Prairie du Chien nine years prior to coming here. I Dance MATTERS j BALLROOM j DECORAH, IOWA | Sat., April 27 I EARL HUNT I and his Old and New | Time Band 1 Well" May 1 f HENRY CHARLES I Stylists of Sweet Swing Christian Science Churches The subject of the lessoi»-sermon in all Churches of Christ, Scientist, for Sunday, April 28, 1946, is "Probation After Death." The golden text is "Take heed, brethern, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God. But exhort one another daily, while it i3 called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceit- i'ulness of sin." (Hebrews 3:12,13) Selections from the Bible and from "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy comprise the lesson-sermon. One of the Bible citations reads: "I beseech you therefore, brethern, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God." (Romans 12:1,2> From the Christian Science textbook is the following: "Trials teach mortals not to lean on a material staff,— a broken reed, which pierces the heart. We do not half remember this in the sunshine of joy and prosperity. Sorrow is salutary. Through great tribulation we enter the kingdom. Trials are proofs of God's care." (p. 66) We can expect more and more Iowa poultry raisers to turn to quality chicks and quality chick production to maintain efficiency in the years ahead, H. L. Wilcke, Iowa State College poultry head, said this week. Wilcke pointed out that probable lower prices and feed shortages in the future will emphasize the need for quality and efficiency of production. And if all of Iowa's flock owners stress quality and productive efficiency, the state will enjoy a more profitable market. In stressing the need for quality, Wilcke said the National Poultry Improvement Plan was aimed at improving breeding stock, hatching eggs and baby chicks in all the states. The plan, under the direction of the United States Department of Agriculture, was set up in 1935 by congressional action. In Iowa, the plan has been in operation since 1936. with the State Department of Agriculture. Iowa State College and other interested groups cooperating. In operation. Wilcke said, the plan calls for cooperation of hatcheries and poultry breeders in having their breeding (locks, eggs and baby chicks inspected and classified according to pullorum disease control and breeding background. Under the program there are four stages of breeding quality and four stages of pullorum control. Breeding flock owners and hatcheries may be classified as U. S. Approved or U. S. Certified, under the quality program, with U. S. Certified being the better classification. To be in either of these classifications the breeders and the hatcheries must meet the requirements of the state program. In addition, breders may have their flocks classified as U. S. Record of Performance or U. S. Record of Merit, based on breeding background with the latter classification the better of the two. In the pullorum control classification, the four stages in order of merit are: U. S. Pullorum Clean. U. S. Pul­ lorum Passed. U. S. Pullorum Controlled and U. S. Pullorum Tested. Th6 differences in the classification, Wilcke said, are based upon the number of years of pullorum testing and the percentage of reactors in the flocks tested. Hatcheries and breeders, cooperating in the plan, are authorized to display the emblems designating their classification. Wilcke said poultry raisers can obtain more of the details of the program by talking with cooperating hatcheries in their areas. Where beets and carrots are desired only for table use during the season, very small spring plantings should be made. Large plantings for fresh storage over winter should be delayed until the Inst of June. But parsnips and vegetable oyster plantings for winter storage should be made by now. Spring plantings of turnips are not ordinarily as satisfactory as lute summer plantings. Incidentally. Iowa climate is not well adapted to rutabagas. The LEADING 110 DAY HYBRID For IOWA Reserve Your Supply NOW For 1947 Planting FRED H. J. THOMA R. F. D. No. 1 Postville, Iowa The time is ripe to sow seed of Mar- globe and other rust-resistant tomatoes in the garden. For small gardens abovtt eight seeds per hill are recommended. Hills should be spaced about two feet apart. Treating seed with one of the available protectant dusts is advised. And hills should be marked because the seed germinates slowly. Cabbage and broccoli plantings may be made now. Many gardeners also set out cauliflower. Brussels sprouts and head lettuce at this time. But these plants are not too dependable for our climate even in normal years. It is wise to protect newly set plants from the sun and wind for a short time until the plants "take hold." A strong start also is assured by applying a cupful of liquid fertilizer at the time of transplanting. To obtain a good I'quid fertilizer, dissolve three tablespoons of a complete chemical garden fertilizer in one gallon of water. Let the mixture stand several hours before using. Home gardeners are going to be asked to do an all-out home gardening job this year to meet a need as great as that of the war years. Wartime demands have been replaced by the peacetime problem of feeding starving Europe. Home gardens will play a big part in this job. They'll furnish food for the table both in fresh and preserved form. This will enable commercial food processors to divert more of their products for overseas relief. Garden and conserve will be the watchword. But the city garden- planter will find the job more difficult than in war years. Many of the war garden plots have been sold for building sites, making more difficult the problem of finding garden space. Now that gas rationing is no longer a problem, individual or community gardens on the outskirts of towns are a possible answer. Farm gardens will continue on the same basis, being a part of farm living. Attention, Veterans! There has been a poor response to the request for all Veterans who are interested in low-rental temporary housing to register with Joseph B. Steele, Town Clerk.
