Small Fires At 2 Local Places A flue near u partition caused a little excitement at Anderson's Cnfe. last Friday, but no damage was done. The partition got pretty hot and some smoke resulted, but everything was under control In short order. From Lusby's drug store an alarm was turned in Sunday morning, but the situation was well in hand by the time a few firemen arrived, and also E. W. Lusby, who did some snry morning dews, caused shallow wells to go dry and brought (limln ishing rainfalls. "The upper water strata in this state has been entirely depleted,' he told members. Opposed to Madrid Dam The Madrid dam, if it goes through as proposed on the Des Moines river, will result in but one thing, destruction of all the beautiful territory along the river between the Ledges state park and Madrid. "The hydro-electric Interests will benefit," he said, "but itt the expense of the public." He explained that erosion would result from water so damned, that river property and cottages would be continually endangered, and that life In the stream would be killed off because sludge backing up would cover normal plant growth. He proposed, Instead, a series of small dams, such as are in the Upper Des Moines river, In Kossuth county. They would help to raise the water level, even the flowage. but cost only a small fraction of the hydro-electric plant cost, and would hurt nobody. Heeled Officers M. P. Weaver was reelected president of the county group, Gottlieb Bleich was reelected vice president, and J. D. Lowe was reelected secretary und treasurer. A nice balance in the bank was reported. Field Day last fall cleared about $200 over expenses. Following the business session, SEE MOVIES OF BEBUnilNCny] Pioneer Seed Co.
