All preparations are completed for the Big-Four Poultry Association's tour and the dates set for next Tuesday and Wednesday, September 18 and 19. This tour will be in charge of Prof. W. H. Lapp, foremost poultry husbandry- man of Iowa. Mr. and Mrs. John Powell and family spent Sunday at Auburn, but were not as lucky catching fish as Jack is in foxes in the good old wintertime. The honor of being the greatest fishers hereabouts belongs to Walter Gass and Miss Anne Wednes of this city, who coaxed twenty- four bass of lawful size out of Turkey river and up onto the bank last Sunday. After a week's visit here to relatives and friends, Mr. and Mrs. Fred Thoma and two children and Mr. and Mrs. Herman Klawnn left by car for their homes in Milwaukee, being accompanied by Mr. and Mrs. Louis F. Thoma and son Wil- lnrd of this city. One of our readers rises to remark that it is discouraging to anyone to plant and toil for a number of years and bring grapes to the bearing point and then have the youth of our town not only take the fruit but destroy the vines as well.

Int «est|ng Items From the Files of "The Graphic" published In Postville, September 16, 1898 While threshing last week Harvey French lost his entire crop by fire. The separator was also destroyed by the flames. Our public schools opened on Monday with an enrollment of 259 pupils. Prof. Coffeen and Miss Sala are at the head of the schools. Fire destroyed the Shackelton barn near Frankville last week. 1300 bushels of oats, 113 bushels of timothy seed, hay and straw were lost in the blaze. The 52nd Iowa regiment which is now encamped at the fair grounds at Des Moines has thus far lost 22 men through death, although never seeing the enemy. • Our fire laddies arrived home from West Union Friday in high spirits, having won one first and two second prizes in the contests at the fair last week. The total cash received for prizes amounted to $600. The Thoma building is now located on its new foundation. Mr. Krueger completed the work without a mishap. A clothing firm will be the first occupants of the building. Mr. Krueger will also move the H. S. Luhman home to the west side of the lot, and farmer Siegler will have his large barn moved to another place. ST. PAUL'S LUTHERAN CHURCH Frederick R. Ludwle.

SHAKING APPLE TREES DAMAGES FUTURE CROP Don't shake the tree to get that nice red apple at the top—use a ladder. Careful picking not only protects this year's crop but next year's as well, says Ed Cott, extension horticulturist at Iowa State College. In the first place, apples that are shaken from the tree or blown down are good only for sauce or canning. Of course it's easy to can them as soon as they fall, but a big homestored apple tastes even better in the winter, reminds Cott. Next year's apple crop can be considerably reduced by shaking the trees, warns the horticulturist. Some of the fruit may not be ready to drop, and heavy apples sometimes split fruit spurs loose from the heavier branches. These spurs are the small branches that produce the crop for the following year. Practice shallow cultivation in late summer gardens, Iowa State College horticulturists say.
