It Is an unusually odd shaped animal, and is * native of the upper Mississippi valley, according to the encyclopedia It is of trie salamander type. ** v * that it is two or three Inches in diameter and is about a foot long. The feet »nd head are those of .. ftalftmander. bvit the peculiarity of the animal Is its gills. These are dark red and wave like branching coral »t each shoulder, entirely outside of the gill openings. They are retained through life. It is an inhabitant of the muddy lakes and rivers of the upper Mississippi valley, and lives on mails, insects and worms. Only one* in a while does it take bait intended for a fish. Otherwise, it may be said to cling dose to the mud. Church Group First To Finish Work Quota Given by Red Cross The sewing guild of the Rock Falls Lutheran church is the first organization to finish its complete assignment for the American Red Cross production committee of the Sterling-Rock Palls chapter. Mrs. Sam McBride is the chairman of this group and did all the-cutting of the garments made, except the snow suits. The guild has completed 18 women's dresses, nine pa- Jamas. 25 baby shirts, 12 snow suits. 24 rompm. 24 night dresses, 123 diapers, and 23 girls' skirts. The Helping Hand ^ociety-made-20 of the skirts, and several friends of the guild, although not members of it, made individual garments. Edward Klein of the Sterling Garment corporation has cut out all of the snow suits for the production committee. These are made of a heavy coating material and hard to handle by amateurs, so that the sewers especially appreciate this help. The winter quota consists of 100 hospital pajamas. 400 girls' skirts, County Federation Of Woman's Clubs To Meet Thursday Rock Falls Club Will Be Hostess; State Chairman to Speak Thirty-fourth semi-annual convention of the Whlte.side County Federation of Woman's clubs, convenes next Thursday in the Rocfc Falls ConfrreRational church.

Of these the following have been completed and sent off: 84 hospital pajamas, 185 girls' skirts. 37 women's dresses. 16 knit suits, 89 sweaters, and five toddler packs. All of the materials for these garments have been furnished by the National Red Cross office, to which they were' donated by congressional action, this material being some that irai~pUTeri*5ed by an appropriation for the relief of the civilian sufferers of the European war. So far less than 2 per cent of the shipments with chapter production garments have been lost This may be accounted for by the fact that each ship has carried only a small assignment of the garments.

Closing New York Stock Prices Refugee Work in Philippines Topic Of Splendid Talk Mrs. Fern Asuzano Addresses Women at Christian Church More than 100 ladles listened Intently to Mrs. Fern Asuuno of Manila. P. I., as she spoke of her work among the refugees in the Philippines, nt the 1 o'clock dessert luncheon sponsored by the Friendship class at the Rock Falls Christian church Friday. Mrs. Asuzano talked for approximately an hour, and her listeners wished her to speak longer. She also snowed beautiful embroidery work, laces, a large teakwood chest, camphor wood lined, and other items she had purchased at various places in the Orient. The speaker told of her trip to the PhUlppine9;-and-of-the-ahlp--stop-j ping at Hawaii. Japan, and touching' the shores of China. The trip re-' quires 23 days, she stated. She told of the different islands, the climate there, which is not of a tropical nature, and spoke especially of Manila. It is a very modern city, she relat» ed, and except for the various nationalities that one sees, one would believe they were in Chicago or some other American city. She spoke of her work among the refugees, and stated that she was surprised on her return_to the Unitr ed States that the people of this country* did not know more what was being done. She told of refugees with whom she had become well acquainted, and of the fact that they were once rich people either from Germany or German occupied territories. The government has set aside an island for rehabilitation of the refugees, she stated. Her employer is lhJe~hJgh commlsiaoneTlnTJnrwoi'kT and as a result, she has an opportunity to secure first hand information of the conditions. As all the refugees cannot be taken there, some go to Shanghai, which is the only port that they can enter without a passport. She stated that some things were so horrible that she didn't want to talk about them at all—that the refugees had been so terribly treated, Mrs. Asuu*no will leave the latter pan of next week for California, from where she will leave for the Islands. She has signed up for two more years of service there. KEW YORK — 'AP> — timidity returned to the stock m«r- k»t today and leading Ixfues Rrn- eraUy retreated to moderately lower level* Lack of any pronounced buying urge, which stemmed the recovery tide in the Utter part of yesterday s ! se.wiofK was in evidence at the. start. White scattered favorites managed to pin on modest advances, declines at the close of fractions to a point or more predominated. Selling never picked up real momentum and transfers on the reaction were held to around 300,000 shares. • Brokers inclined to blame a somewhat peseimtatic turn to the war •f, with Russia admitting nari forces had launched a new attack along the whole Moscow front and Germany claiming the capture of the important city of Kharkov. In the fact of these developments, even thow with bullish Ideas were dupotted to trim account* a.s protection against happenings over tomorrow's Sunday recess. Reluctance of intensive liquidation, however, as well as modest bidding for special stocks, was credited partly to another assortment of cheerful corporate earnings, statement* which confirmed the ability of a number of Industries to top IMO showings despite heavy tax charge*.

It was an easily discouraged market. Wheat was depressed by word that a record amount of wheat was in storage and prices declined about 2 cents a bushel before partially retracing its way. Also adding to the gloom was reports from Washington that the President was opposed to 100 per cent of parity on farm Joans, proposed hi a bill approved by the house agriculture committee, but would agree to the 110 per cent of parity price eclling recommended by Secretary of Agriculture Wlckard. The treasury also issued an amendment restricting the use of »ny froaen funds for the buy and selling in commodity markets, effective today. All grains worked lower with soybeans weakest because of better weather for harvest. Receipts were: Wheat 16 cars, corn 152, oats 29.
