WEDNESDAY, JUNE 5, 1948. Don't Dip Sheep Until Shearing Wounds Heal Sheepman should not dip their flocks until lifter shearing cuts have healed. There's danger of severe irritation of any shearing wounds warns Dr. K. W. Stouder, Iowa State College extension veterinarian. It will pay to look for licks on the lambs shortly after their mothers arc .•.heaved. Stouder snys. These parasites often leave the shorn ewes and p> to lambs at shearing time. If many ticks are found it may be advisable to dip the lambs immediately. This can be done in a barrel or fimilar container. Until more Information is available on some of the newer dipping preparations. Stouder advises flock owners to continue using the time-tried lime sulfur, arsenical and nicotine sulfate preparations. And to be on the safe side flock owners should not feed sweetclover in any form within 30 days of shearing time, according to Stouder. There's always danger, he snys, of hemorrhages from shearing cuts when sweet- clover has been fed or pastured. THE POSTVILLE HERALD. POSTVILLE. IOWA. PAGE THREE. THANK YOU! I appreciate the splendid endorsement given me at last Monday's primaries by the voters of Allamakee county. I solicit your continued good will and support. ALFRED HANSMEIER County Auditor Took Five Months For Mormons to Cross Iowa Buffeted by wintry winds, hampered by heavy snows, pelted by cold spring rains, mired down in deep mud for weeks at a time, the pioneer Mormon caravan under Brigham Young required almost three months to reach Garden Grove, one of their most important "Camps of Israel" in Iowa, located in newly established Decatur County. Here they paused to rest and refresh themselves. On April 27, 1B40, at the "sound of the horn." four hundred men sot to work building cabins and fences, plowing land and planting spring crops. A number of men were left behind to harvest crops. On May 11th Brigham Young and his Mormon contingent left Garden Grove and continued their northwesterly trek. They reached a place called Mount Pisgah in what is now Union County on May 18th, where a permanent Camp of Israel was established. The eight hundred burials between 1846 and 1852 stand today as a mute reminder of the length of their sojourn at Mount Pisgah and the hardships they underwent. The story of the Mormon trek through Iowa is told by Dr. William J. Peterson, in the May issue of "The Palimpsest." Towards the end of May most of the Mormons proceeded in a westerly direction into present-day Adair County, whence they journeyed westward' along what is now approximately State Highway 92 between Greenfield and Council Bluffs. In this area the Potawatomi Indians still lingered, but they were friendly and helpful. It was not until June 14th that Brigham Young reached the Missouri. It had taken five months to make a trip that today could be made in an easy eight- hour drive over 300 miles of concrete pavement. At Miller's Hollow, later Kanesvillc, and now Council Bluffs, the Mormons built a ferry boat which was launched on June 29th. Soon they was launched on June 29th. Soon they were encamped on the west bank of the Big Muddy at a point called Winter Quarters, on the northern outskirts of modern Omaha.

Coffee jars, mayonnaise jars, or any jars with a narrow mouth, can be used to round out this year's supply of canning jars, says Jewel Graham, extension nutritionist at Iowa State College. And pickles, tomatoes and some fruits are the products Miss Graham recommends putting up in these jars. Thai's because these foods can bo processed in a boiling water bath. She cautions against using them in a pressure canner because one can't be sure the glass in the jars is strong enough to withstand the pressure. The 'regular canning jars, however, have been specially processed to prevent breaking when heat and pressure are applied. The No. 03 lid will fit these narrow- mouth Jars. It can bo used with the jar's own screw-lid, but the cardboard or sealing material inside should be removed before using. A hole also should be punched in the lid so it can be removed ctisily\ Miss Graham advises. The lid is screwed on till it grips, as with any two-piece lid. The jar is then processed and cooled without further adjusting. The screw-lid may be carefully removed 24 hours after processing so it won't rust on. When growing chicks are 12 weeks old they should be put on lower cost feeds, says W. R. Whitfield, poultry specialist at Iowa State college. This is especially important now that grain prices have advanced. Sweetclover should not be fed sheep for 30 days after shearing. to For Sale—Two corner lots, just north of the Milwaukee depot.

THERE S NO PLACE LIKE "HOME" WHEN YOUR FORD NEEDS ATTENTIONS Prior to the organization of the first public high school in Iowa in 1856 the pioneers depended on private academies and seminaries for training their adolescent youth. This academy movement had almost reached its peak by the time Iowa entered the Union. Beginning in Pennsylvania a century before Iowa achieved statehood, taking a deeper root in Massachusetts, thriving mightily in New York, then sweeping westward into the new States as they were carved from the national domain, the academy movement had culminated in the founding of more than 6000 recorded non-public secondary schools by 1850. At least ten academies were authorized in the Black Hawk Purchase while Iowa still formed a part of the Territory of Wisconsin but only two of these actually came into existence. More academies were incorporated by the Legislative Assembly of the Territory of Iowa and a half dozen of these had begun service before Iowa entered the Union. At Yellow Spring a school that was founded in 1836 was incorporated as an academy in 1844. At Grandview in Muscatine County the Eastern Iowa Normal School was destined to flourish for a score of years. At Dubuque Thomas Hart Benton, Jr., taught the "lirst classical school in Iowa." Howe's Academy at Mount Pleasant served Iowa from 1844 until 1917, the most famous, perhaps, of all the unincorporated institutions. A description of private academies in Iowa is given by Professor Forest C. Ensign in the March issue of "The Palimpsest." As many as a hundred of those academies were established in Iowa before high schools became numerous The competition of public high schools was too great, however, and the passage of a law in 1911 providing for the payment of tuition at a public high school for every youth who wished to enter high school but who did not reside In a district maintaining such a school, served as a death knell to the private academy.

Many log cabin schools, academies, and even colleges had been opened in Iowa by 1840. The first log cabin school in Iowa had been taught by Berryman Jennings in Lee County as early as 1830. Sixteen years later, when Iowa stood poised for statehood, scores of log cabin schools, with their fireplaces, their long forms of rough planks or split logs, and their diligent schoolmasters, dotted eastern Iowa. Although studies were limited to the three R's, the students were drilled thoroughly in these and probably eclipsed the average high school graduate of today. Grammar, composition, and literature were utterly neglected. Textbooks were neither numerous nor uniform, but McGufTey's reader, Ray's arithmetic, Smith's geography, and almost any elementary speller might be used. Geography lessons and even arithmetic problems were sometimes stated in rhyme to stimulate interest. On Friday afternoon a spelling match was often held and "pieces spoken," frequently with parents and friends present and taking a lively part. Teachers were not well qualified and invariably they were poorly paid. Elementary education was primitive in 1846—a far, far cry from the well equipped schools of today. The numerous academies, seminaries, and select schools that had been established in the Black Hawk Purchase attest the interest of the Iowa pioneer in higher education. West Point and Denmark academies in Lee County, Howe's Academy at Mount Pleasant, and Mechanics' Academy in Iowa City were among those operating in 1£46. In addition Iowans prided themselves on Iowa College at Davenport, Burlington University, Iowa City College, Iowa City University, and Mount Pleasant Collegiate Institute. Iowa College was destined to become Grinnell College while the last named became Iowa Wesleyan, the oldest college in Iowa. A brief survey of schools in Iowa is given by Dr. J. A. Swisher in the March issue of "The Palimpsest."
