CHOICE POULTRY Old Church Bell Tolls After 23 Silent Years Workmen Tear Down An-* cient Structure Replaced Last Year. After 23 years of silence, the old hell m the.tower of the little Epi*copal church on -North Pennsvlvania avenue tolled Thursday--and then was quieted forever. In the 30 years before the rone was cut in 1908, the bell rang for weddings and funerals and Sundav morning services. Thursday it rang ilts own doom, for the little wooden ana stucco church, so many years a andmark in Mason City, is now only a pointed skeleton of weathered rafters surrounded by piles of gi·· debris. Workmen, with ropes -V pulleys lowered the bell at noon. In " . f e y days the old church will be Bell to he Saved. Beside the dying structure the nevv brick and.stone edifice stands n Its basement the old bell is to be ··reserved, but there it can ring no nore. Workmen who lowered the el, estimated its weight, without he huge wheel around which the ope used to pass, at about a quar- er ton. ^ 'I recognized the sound the mo- ment I heard that old bell ring " declared Dr. R. F. Kuntz who as a school boy, rang the bell from the boys choir room. "It's tone was just as weet and beautiful as it used to be." Dr. Kunz heard the bell sound as workmen in the belfrey tugged at its foundations. "They formerly i;sed a bell much more then they do now," he reminisced. The church once stood on the present site of the Y. M. C. A. In 1908 it was remodeled and a coat of stucco applied. The tower, then 30 years old, was not considered solid and the ringing of the bell rocked the building. Then, too, the vibrations from the bell caused the roof to leak, and for the sake of safety the rope was cut. The church was moved about five years ago to make room for the Y. M. C. A. At present the hell, separated from the wheel with which it has huddled thru so many seasons lies among- the piles qf lumber torn from the old building. The wheel ha| been been discorded. ..

MASON crnr lowan's Discovery of Value of Cherry Seeds Is Now Used MOUNT VERNON, Feb. 20 Vl-Dr. Nicholas Knight, head of the chemistry department at Cornell college for 31 years, and a former Cornell student, Harold Maxwell, in IBIS discovered that oil may be extracted from cherry pits. Manufacturers only recently have started to utilize the fact. The Industrial and Engineering chemistry magazine credits J. G. Martin, a cherry grower of Sturgeon Bay Wis. with having made the discovery 10 years after Dr. Knight and Maxwell published their study on the oil in cherry pits in the London Chemical News in 1918. The cherry-seed oil was used by the Germans in making explosives. Conjecture as to the source of the fat they used in making nitro-^ly- cerme caused Dr. Knight and ivfax- well to make experiments which led o discovery of the oil. Martin/is said to have discovered he oil m cherry pits after he no- iced the grease spot left on the loor as the result of stepping on a pit. Martin is now making oil out of nearly. 1,000 tons of cherry pits ach year. The oil is u^ed in this country principally for manufac- uring cosmetics and fuel. 13 HELEN HENDRICKS News Editor Residence Phone 340W OFFICE WIONE Phone 239 MB fltt M^^ BD ^n itaBHA t~ i T · -- - · ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^MB^^BBI UNITED FRUIT CO Phonp 7M nm*TM ^TM T ,r!^^^ ** * ^B0 %^* FREE DELIVERY S P E C I A L ORANGES FLORIDA ORANGES Tree Ripened DC Mammoth Size, ^ f f c TANGERINES SWEET AND JUICY 2 Dozen New Cabbage, pound Butter, Fresh Creamery, Ib. ...
