The New Hampton high school will graduate a class of 52 tonight, 25 girls and 27 boys. Niagara Cave was formally opened to the public for the season on Sunday, May 10th. Senator 1 L. J. Dickinson of Iowa will speak at the C. K. Preus gymnasium, Decorah, May 26 at 8:00 p. m. Seventy-five chickens were stolen from the Ed Hoyme farm, south of Decorah, last Thursday night Edward Fitzsimmons of Fairview township, for more than 75 years a resident of Allamakee county, passed away at the County Home on May 6th. The Milwaukee road has a crew of 100 men replacing ties on the Elkader branch line, says the McGregor Times. The work is expected to take about a month. The merchants of Ossian have arranged for free movies on Wednesday evenings and barrel rolling on Saturday evenings throughout the summer months. Dudley Larsen of Decorah has been awarded the contract for wiring the new Allamakee County Home for the sum of $2222. The Home Savings Bank at Fort Atkinson will shortly pay a 10 per cent dividend to depositors, making a total of 88 per cent so returned. Bishop Edwin F. Lee of Singapore and Manilla, a former Ossian boy, will be the commencement speaker at Decorah the evening of May 28th. Herman Schulte, a pioneer resident of Clayton county, passed away at his home in Garnavillo last Wednesday morning at the age of 87 years. The Mississippi river was rising here Thursday morning, says the Prairie du Chien Press, and the reading was 12.5 The river will rise approximately 13 inches more, Arthur Gillis reported, and the crest is ex pected here Saturday. Considerable state publicity is given the fact that last Wednesday in Judge H. E. Taylor's court at West Union the jury was composed entirely of women, says the West Union Union, the first time in the history of the county and probably in the state. Only two of the famous Cherry sisters are left to electrify theatrical patrons—Addie and Effie. Elizabeth, 67, died last Monday in a Cedar Rapids hospital. A bounty of five cents each on crows, S2.00 each on adult fox and 51.00 each on fox cubs was approved by the board of supervisors Wednesday afternoon, says the Waverly Democrat. Tn 1930 the railroads of the United States employed 2,200,000 men. Due to bus and truck competition this has been reduced to 1,000,000 and a further reduction of 200,000 is being considered. A Winneshiek county baseball league, which opened the season last Sunday, is composed of teams from the following towns: Burr Oak, Fort Atkinson. Frankville, Nordness, Ridgeway, Spillville, and two from Decorah. The four parties from the vicinity of Ion who were taken into custody by- State Game Warden Kaufman of Lansing, for using dynamite to secure fish out of Yellow River recently, says the Waukon Journal, took a change of venue from Justice Nichols' to Justice Hermanson's court here in Waukon last Wednesday. Clifford McCrystal and H. Clark plead guilty to the charge and were each fined $25 and costs, amounting close to $5. which were paid. The two sons of McCrystal, who were minors, were deemed not actively engaged in the dynamiting and were not penalized. All persons ought to be aware by this time that it is a grave offense to dynamite a stream to secure fish, besides being a botch attempt at sportsmanship. A construction crew is engaged at present in replacing poles of the In terstate Power Co. with new ones to provide a second circuit of service wires that will loop the south part of Waukon, says the Journal, which will permit better and more reliable service. . New lights and 50 or more poles will be used in its construction, which will take about a month's time, all of it at a cost of $5,800 to the power company. A new stamp was placed on sale last Friday in observance of the ter centennary anniversary of Rhode Island. The central design on the stamp is a likeness of Roger Williams, with U. S. Postage across the top and "1639" and "1936" on the left and right while at the bottom is a circular panel with the denomination 3c at the right and a similar panel on left is a reproduction of the state seal of Rhode Island. The likeness of Will iams was modeled from a picture of the statue in the Roger Williams park at Providence, R. I. Northwood has a city ordinance which prohibits solicitation by can vassers and agents in the residence district, says the Northwood Anchor, and violators are subject to arrest. And that none may plead guilty to not knowing of the ordinance the city pro vides householders with a neat card to be tacked on the front door which reads as follows: "Warning! Solicitors, Canvassers and Agents are Pro hibited by Law from Canvassing in Town of Northwood, Iowa. All violators are subject to arrest as provided by Town Ordinance No. 146, 'An ordinance prohibiting soliciting in and upon private residences, and declaring the same to be a nuisance and pre scribing penalty therefor.' Please do not ring our door bell!" Here AH Next Week DWAY ATTRACTIONS Smith Athletic Field 7-Rides--7 10--High Class Shows--10 Concessions Sensational Free Acts 8:30--Twice Nightly-10:30 FUN FOR THE KIDDIES EVERYBODY WELCOME Mushroom hunters have come in with • big sacks of sponge mushrooms this week, says .-the-McGregor. Times. Burt Saw veil of the Yellow River country has found a big market for them, bringing in 14 gallons Tuesday and coming back with 10 more gallons Wednesday, disposing of both loads easily. On next Tuesday, May 26, bids will be received by the Iowa state highway commission for the grading of 1.363 miles of highway in Allamakee county on a relocation of road between Waukon Junction and Harpers Ferry. And at the same time and place bids will also be received for the construction of seven culverts on this road. Sheep shearing started in Fayette county last week, according to the West Union Argo, which says: "The wool yield is reported- heavier than usual. The shearer, Mr. Sullivan of Clermont, who worked on the flocks east of West Union, estimated Mrs. Ervle Margraff's wool clip at twelve pounds to the fleece. Local wool buyers have been offering 26 cents a pound." Local . merchants selling garden seeds, plants, seed potatoes and similar items have been officially notified by authorized representatives of the state board of assessment and review to collect the sales tax on such items in the future, says the Sumner Gazette. Since the state sales tax went into effect they have been tax exempt, and as a result people have been eating tax-free garden products. Roy C. Hoick, field auditor, in Waterloo said: "We've tried to notify every place which sells seeds and potatoes, as we don't want to have to penalize anybody after the season is closed." Considerable indignation has been expressed on both sides of the dog question in West Union the past week, says the Argo. The dogs at the James Edwards and Howard Whitney homes were poisoned, inflicting an agonizing death on the children's pets and causing an investigation into the identity of the offenders. At the same time Mrs. George J. Schatz brought to the Argo office her son, Jackie, 3, who carried two deep gashes in the side of his face and one on his left arm, after being bitten Saturday forenoon by a terrier. This dog was killed by order of Mayor H. A. Reiners. Mrs. Gordon Meeker was a sufferer from the same cause last week, a dog biting her and inflicting a large wound above the knee as she passed along the street. The board of-supervisors at their meeting last week issued nn order to the county auditor that a bounty of 50c will be paid for the killing of each rattlesnake, says the Waukon Democrat. For proof, at least three inches of the tail must bo with the rattle. This order is effective at once and extends until further notice. Several rattlers have already been killed, due to warm weather calling them from their winter quarters. That Luther College has, emerged from the depression period with flying colors, says Decorah Public Opinion, and is on the threshold of the greatest growth in its 75 years of existence, was thoroughly demonstrated by reports made public at the banquet on Monday evening given by the college administration to members of the Decorah Chamber of Commerce and other friends. In 1933 the current debt of the college was $123,000. This has now been reduced to $98,000, a net reduction in two years of $25,000. Three strangers who said they hailed from Kansas City and Detroit and were apparently seeking to sell some ladies fur coats in their possession without securing a peddler's license or observing the sales tax requirements, says the Waukon Journal, were given a questioning at the sheriffs office one day last week. They evidently concluded it was a warning and left town. This appears to be a new racket of chaps peddling furs and diamonds which are said to be of questionable value. A pair of them were apprehended at Decorah soliciting sales in this manner and when found to be without a peddler's license or a car license both their car and their goods were held and the chaps walked out of town. Winter was definitely over in Fayette county on Wednesday, May 6th, says the West Union Argo. On that day J. S. Crowe's hydrant, through which he obtains water for one of his stock tanks, thawed out. Mr. Crowe, in West Union Wednesday, was told by Ervie Margraff, farmer east of the city on the Elgin road, that the latter's stock water hydrant had thawed out the day before. He decided that he might expect his own hydrant to thaw out about that soon, so he went back to his farm north of the city and went out to take a look at the apparatus. As he stood looking there was a gurgling sound, and a small stream of rusty water began to trickle out of the pipe. These hydrants had been frozen up since the first week in February. The so-called circus which was more of n dog and pony show affair that held forth at the fair grounds last Thursday, says the Waukon Journal, did not prove much of an attraction to the populace and the cash they took out of town wouldn't fill a mitten. The Minnesota conservation committee has fixed a fee of twenty-flve cents to all who wish to enter the state parks this coming summer, says the Northwood Anchor. The two-bits isn't a lot of money, of course, but it may be that many will refuse to pay because it seems like such an outright racket Standing on a principle by travelers may well cost Minnesota the loss of a great deal of tourist money.

CITIZENS STATE BANK Capital and Surplus—$100,000.00 Postville, Iowa FORD BRAKES give you the last word in SAFETY! 4 HERE'S WHAT YOU GET! l.Ford Super-Safety brakes are an improvement on the type of braking system used on many of America's costliest cars and on most racing cars. They aie the last word in sureness of operation. 2. Ford easy brake-pedal action—with big drums and big contact surface for the tire on the road (6.00 x 16-inch air-balloon tires)—means less foot pressure needed to stop your car. 3. Separate, tempered-steel rods go from the brake pedal to each brake. Each brake is independently linked to the brake pedal under your toe. No one Eord brake ever depends upon the other three. 4. Ford brake drums give you more square inches of braking surface per pound of car weight (18 6 sq. in.) than you will find in many more expensive cars. 5. These big, 12-inch brake drums with air-cooling ribs are specially constructed to prevent "fading." Cast alloy-iron drums give longer life to drums and linings. vk .MJUJOTm"l% f" 0 **** 1 ' N O brakes made today give you greater assurance of operation than the Super-Safety brakes on the 1936 Ford V-8.
