CLARION--The fertile brain of an Iowa farm woman who created an enthusiastic response from her neighbors culminated in the opening Friday of a "Farm Woman's Market" for the sale of surplus food commodities. Mrs. G. J. Middleton. 4 miles south of Clarion, conceived the idea and discussed the venture with neighboring farm wives and plans were made to hold their opening sale. All articles for sale must be of first grade and arranged in an attractive manner for display. Each individual supplying an article for , sale will derive the profit from that sale after the expense has been prorated These women represent no organization. Mrs. Middleton will continue for a time to sponsor the market. Different groups will act as sales women on the sale days which they plan to hold every Friday. Mrs Arthur McCormick and Mrs. Enos Matson aided Mrs. Littleton at the opening sale. 0. E. McGahey offered space in his hardware store and a window for display where the market was held. If the success of the undertaking Friday is an indication of its future, Wright county farm wives will be carrying fatter purses than has been their custom for the last few years. .
