Robert D. Blue and the Farm Bureau.

Beardsley has been campaigning heavily for an even longer period. vention. Conducting the campaign will be the Republican Finance Committee headed by W. Harold Brenton of Des Moines with Rep. Edward J. Morrissey of Valeria as executive secretary. A finance chairman and committee is to be named in each county to work with the regular county organization. Money will be pooled, if requested, for use from one fund for county, local and state campaigns. NEW IDEA. Money raising always has been one of the big headaches of political party leaders.

The residence for the governor of Iowa, which the state is providing, will bo known not as a "mansion" but as the "governor's home" according to the legislative committee which purchased it. EDITOR GARDENED EARLY IN 1848 On April 5, 1S48, the editor of the Iowa Standard at Iowa City declared: "We had an unusually mild winter for this latitude, and a prospect of an early spring, but we must be a month behind our Memphis friends in the Gardening line, as we perceive that the editor of the Memphis Eagle ; had been treated to a full grown bunch of lettuce on the 23d ult. We have just sown our lettuce and have our onions in the grojjnd where they will remain unseen for many days. The volunteer lettuce, mustard etc., is just peeping out cautiously."
