WASHINGTON, March 4 (IPt-- Daniel F. Steck of Ottumwa today returns to the rank of private citizenry after serving six years as Iowa's first democratic senator since the Civil War. He relinquishes his post'- to Representative L, J Dickinson of Algona, who defeated him for re-election last November. Steck, however, will nave the satisfaction of. seeing one democrat hold a place in Iowa's congressional delegation. B. M. Jacobsen of Clinton replaces Representative F. D.. Letts, republican, of Davenport as the second district solon. : The only other change in "the Hawkeye representation was caused by Dickinson's promotion. Fred C. Gtlchrist of Laurens, former state senator, becomes tenth district congressman. . · ; · · Had Strenuous Contest . Steck's quiet departure from the senate is in marked contrast to the strenuous endeavor he made to obtain a seat. He brot a successful contest against the . election in 1924 of Smith W. Erookhart, who two years later was elected to succeed the late A. B. Cummins. The Ottumwa lawyer was the third member of his party to hold an Iowa seat in the upper house, the other two having been George W. Jones and Augustus Caesar Dodge, who were elected' when Iowa was admitted to statehood. He leaves the senate ac the age of ,49, while Dickinson enters it at the age of 57 after serving- six terms in the house of representatives. It is reported Steck will return to Iowa to resume his legal practices, altho in some cirples he has been mentioned as the possible recipient of a government post, because of his frequent alignment with republic an 3 in congress. , Won Over Hammili Senator Dickinson won the republican nomination last June over John Hammill, then governor, and was elected in the fall by a 72,000 majority over his democratic opponent. Born in Lucas county Oct. 29 1873, he has spent all his life in Iowa except during- the periods he has attended congress in Washing- ton. He was graduated from Cornell college and from the University of Iowa law college, tic-eating in Algona in 1899, he was county attorney there for two terms, his first public office.

HUTCHINS-There hag been ^°} ns and dri ging of corn Cld J'" sta r ted in this commun- In the origination and perfection of Controlled Boasting, Hills Bros, accomplished something: that no o t h e r coffee roaster has yet achieved. By this patented process, the degree of roast is positively controlled. The result is that Hills' Bros. Coffee is absolutely uniform. The 'reason for the success of Controlled Roasting is that this process roasts a few pounds' at a time instead of' in .bulk. By a continuous process these small amounts of coffee flow through the roasters in a steady stream, roasting a little at a time. Automatic control of both the flow and the heat-absolutely prevents variation in the roast. Bold as the claim may seem, no other coffee has the flavor of Hills Bros. Coffee. Wherever Hills Bros. Coffee is introduced 'it quickly becomes the preferred brand. Hills Eros. Coffee never "goes stale, because it is packed in vacuum. By this process, air, which destroys the flavor of coffee, is taken'from the can and kept out. Ordinary cans, even if air-tight, do not keep coffee fresh. Ask for Hills Bros. Coffee by name and look for the Arab--the trade mark--on the can. Sold by grocers everywhere. Hills Bros. Coffee, Inc., Minneapolis, Minnesota. You Can Be Sure It's Smart!
