Former Resident Passes. Word was received of the death of v Edward Hanson, a former Castalia resident who passed away at his home in Clarksville on March, 13, at the age of 81 years. Mr. Hanson was section foreman at Castalia for the Rock Island for many years before moving to Clarksville. Funeral services were held at Clarksville and burial was made there. the grassland was burned year after year. Late spring burning Is particularly bad from a game standpoint. At this time of year almost every grassland fire burns alive nests of helpless baby rabbits. Those same grasses harbor the homes of ground-nesting birds, and even n fast-moving fire will invariably destroy the nest and its contents. Don't burn—especially during the months of April and May. -' HOGS DIE, Apparently catching flre:, defective brooder, a hog.h«|| the Albert Hcnrichsen honnf Holstein taught flre and b one night recently, with the 14 three hogs and 20 small pl ft d make it worse, freezing rain J "iced up" the Ore siren at ( and the firemen were a little! layed in getting to the scene «(| blaze.

Research proves that spring burning does not improve pasture or hay land. Experiments with bluegrass pasture in Wisconsin showed that burning in winter or spring reduced the grass yields the following year from 52 to 71 percent. In Illinois research showed that burning pasture lands in early spring not only failed to improve the grass, but cut grass production in half in a single year, and also that the perennial grasses and other valuable forage plants were replaced by annual weeds that are nearly worthless for pasture where EVANGELICAL U. B. CHURCH Wayne Hargrave, Minister We wish to call special attention to the changed time of services. It seems so many were not attending service because of the late hour of 11:15, so the time has been changed to 9 a. m. The schedule therefore will be: Morning Worship at 9, and Sunday School at 10. Monday evening, April 19, is fellowship night at the church. Please be sure to attend. DANCE AT THE DANCE PALACE : • OSSIAN, IOWA Mrs. Merle Stee and Mary visited relatives in Decorah Friday.
