A. and Juila Shelton Clayton was born March 9, 1863 near Cameron, Warren county Illinois and passed away at his home in Lenox Sept. 23rd, 1935 , aged 72 years, 6 months and 14 days He was married to Emma Dell of Cameron, 111., February 14 1883 and to this union were born four children, Harry, Geo., 3oy and Elsie. They came to Kent, Iowa m 1884 and lived on a farm in the vicinity of Kent and Lenox until they came to Lenox in 1903, where they establish the home in which he lived until his death.

"In 1920, 1921, and 1922, there were only about 80 meters in the town. There were more users of water service than that but they were paying a flat rate. The minimum was $1 and covered 1,000 gallons of water. "Now we have 260 meters— in fact every user has a meter— and" the minimum rate is still only $1 but it covers 1,500 gallons. Pumping has increased from about 18,000 gallons a day in 1922 to more than 75,000 gallons a day now. "Even during the time when ew people paid more than the minimum rate, the waterworks Anyone Can Carry The Ball When the Wpy is Clear By Coach Gael- Tackling and blocking are two of the most necessary elements of the game of football and they will be discussed in this article and bring home to followers of the game some of the things that ar enot often observed in a game but that are vitally necessary . Tackling is the- legal use by a defensive player of his hands 01 arms in attempting to hold or throw to the ground an opponent in possession of the ball Tackling is very important. I is impossible to defeat, very bad ly, a good tackling team. The deadly tackier, who tackles fo keeps, is a big asset and ther should be no man on the team who cannot tackle well. The defensive quarterback hould be a perfect tackier. Vhile he doesn't tackle as much s th oether men on the team, •hen the opportunity comes for im to tackle, it is vital. He CHANGE IN PASTORATE OF M. E. CHURCH At the session of the lowa-^Des Moines conference in Des Moines ast week, Rev. F. L. Shepherd vho has been pastor of the loral M. E. church the past five yrars was appointed to the Maxv-/Hl- Cambridge charge in Story eo'in- ty. This appointment is l<> a lew arrangement of these towns, both having formerly oeen with other places. Mr. Shepherd will live at Maxwell where there is a splendid church with a substantial increase in salary. They will leave Friday for their new home. The Lenox church will be under the leadership of Rev. Thos. G. Kelly, formerly of the Yorktown-Norwich charge. Mr. Kelly is an intimate friend of Mr. Shepherd, who speaks very highly of his work and says Lenox is to be congratualted on the was making some money Then town and an enormous burden was came the paving of the placed on this fund, as mains lad to be extended and taps made to protect future property owners. Before the water func had recovered from this jolt the drought came on. The drought last year cost the water func $2 400 and there is no assurance that it might not be repeated again. It is time for Lenox tc make sure of an adequate supply of water. . "This can be done by buymi the land where the lakes ar now located and taking advan tage of government money that ill be spent, anyway, to raise nd strengthen the dam and to ontrol erosion. A project has been worked Watcnvorks (Continued on page 8) must get his man or a touch- own results and his team is ikely to be beaten. The man with the big repu- ation must tackle the same as ,ny other man on the team. Tackling requires headwork, ood judgment and plenty of icrve. A tingle of pleasure is making a good tackle. For a traight on tackle he should be n a crouched position, with head ack and eyes open. The tack- >r who closes his eyes just before ontact will often miss his man— nd he doesn't get another chance.

It is the legal obstructing of an opponent with any part of the body above the knees and without using the arms or hands on the opponent unless they are held close to the body. There is a 15-yard penalty for illegal use of the hands or arms by a teammate of the runner" who is carrying the ball The purpose of blocking is to keep the opponent away from the man carrying the ball without th euse of the arms or hands As a rule, high school stars wil ot block well. They get too nuch credit for carrying the all and have a hirk their duty when hould be blocking. When you see a man who will lock viciously in addition " appointment.

Rogers brought in a half dozen ears of corn he had picked while visiting at Emmetsburg, Palo Alto county. The six ears weighed a total of 71/2 Ibs and the longest measured 13y 2 inches. We hung it in the window where it attracted considerable attention. A few days later Doc Manroe brought in six ears of corn he had picked in his field at the south edge of town. They are not as long as the northern Iowa corn and are plainly a different variety, but they are fine looking ears. They are well formed and well filled and the kernels seem to be better filled than the northern corn. Look it over and give us your opinion as to which you would pick if you could have a hundred bushels of.either. YES, HE HAS HIS LICENSE Herman Holben made application for his automobile operator's license on the usual form and at the proper time, and shortly thereafter received his license. This was all regular and to be expected, but when the second one came along a week or two later he took it as a joke and filed it away with the first. A few weeks later he received a third license and began to wonder if the democrats at the state house weren't carrying the joke a little too far. The fourth license came through last week and now he is convinced he must be on the -mailing list for good and he is filing away his licenses as fast as they come in am hopes to receive an even hal dozen before they think ne has had his quarter's worth All are identically alike, be ing photographs of the orig inal application.

Watch for the different types f backfield men during the remainder" of the football season. Good ball carriers are esscn- ial to a winning football team but good tackier are more essential. Any ten-year old boy ould run for a touchdown if he had ten blockers clearing the way for him, but the best ball carrier in the state couldn't win game alone.
