Phone No. 7C0 Postville, Iowa Diamond 760 Gas and Motor Oils Over at Decorah the autoists are tackling big game, running into Milwaukee railroad engines being the lat est. So far none of the. occupants of the cars have been seriously injured; but the autos have been badly wreck ed. The explosion of a steel tank partly filled with oil drained from cars, lo cated in the basement of the Monson Motor Co. at Decorah, exploded last Monday, wrecking the reinforced concrete floor of the building, blowing a hole in the roof and injuring the pro prietor slightly.

This office was a busy place the past week while the primary election bal lots were being printed, says the Waukon Democrat. There were over 12,000 ballots printed for the Demo cralic, Republican and Farmer-Labor political parties, and it is a long and tedious task as the position of the can didates named on the ballots have to be changed in every township, and following each change the necessary proof reading and checking must be done to avoid errors. Believe it or not, Jimmie Edwards who is primarily an automobile dealer and not a farmer, reports two rows of Early Ohio potatoes in bloom in his garden on Maple avenue, says the V.\?st Union Union. He has a new system of planting which may explain the phenomena. He does not cut the potato he uses for seed but plants it whole if it is a large one and uses two if they are small. Whichever way is the better, to cut the potato or not, Mr. Edwards is the first gardener, professional or amateur, to report potato plants in blossom. Another accomplishment of Julius Boeckh, First National bank receiver, has come to light, says the Hawkey Beacon. Recently he exhibited i beautiful carving of "The Lord' Prayer" which was made out of a sin gle piece of white holly wood. The letters are of fantastic design and were cut into the slab of wood, which about two feet square, by means of _ jig saw. Mr. Boeckh did the above work 44 years ago in Lansing. He says it took about 30 hours. The vari ety of wood comes from Pennsylvania and is very flexible and tough. Several prizes have been won by Mr. Boeckh for his fine artistry. Next fall he proposes to show it at the county fair. That this handwork is of rare value is attested by the fact that he has declined selling it in spite of sev eral attractive offers. Automobile and chauffeur's exam inations will be held in the court house, Waukon, on the dates set out below, says the Waukon Democrat, according to a schedule received from the secretary of state's office. These examinations are given by employees of the motor vehicle department. Applicant must appear in his own vehicle or vehicle he has permission to operate. If applicant is less than 18 years of age he or she must be accompanied by parent or guardian; if afflicted with physical infirmity he must undergo a complete examination. Applicants failing to meet requirements of the examination must be re-examined, but no re-examination will be given on the same day. Following is the schedule with the time set at 1 p. m. to 4:30 p. m. each date: June 2, 1C and 30; July 14 and 28. Otto Krueger, whOv farms between Elgin and Clermont, had a field of corn which was up on Sunday, May 17, says the Elgin Echo. This, we bo Hove, is a record for this locality this year. When more than 90 per cent com pleted, the two million dollar dam under construction in the Mississippi river at Guttenberg met a major catastrophe Monday when the cofferdam broke under the strain of high water. In 18 minutes after the break, four acres inside the cofferdam were under 30 feet of water and some 25 cranes, motor pumps, cement mixers and other machines were submerged. Loss to the McCarthy Construction Co., contractors, is estimated at about $50,000, Highest rating in national competition with class C bands from many states was won by the Northwood high school under the direction of L. T. Dillon at the national school band contest held last week in Cleveland, Ohio. The rating given was "highly superior." Iowa bands made a splendid showing at the contest, Mason City winning highest rating in the class A group, Iowa City winning the same in the class B group, with Red Oak and Griswold both winning superior ratings in the marching band division.— Northwood Anchor. Many people in this part of the state have an acquaintance with Rev. John Clinton, pastor of the Fayette Methodist church, says the Sumner Gazette, and know him as a man who is nothing if not extremely versatile. Recently he and five other Methodist ministers from this part of the state left for Columbus, Ohio, to attend the general conference of the Methodist church, making the trip by automobile and living in a house car built by Rev. Clinton. The house car is fully equipped with everything for comfortable living for an indefinite period of time. Two Crookston, Minn., girls had visions of the carnival stage recently, says Decorah Public Opinion. Saturday a letter arrived in Crookston telling of two positions with a carnival company. The recipient of the letter hurriedly crossed the street to her girl friend's (age 18 years) home and persuaded her to pack up so they could catch the bus at Rochester and get to Decorah to accept their positions with the carnival. The girls left home on their mission but Monday the girl friend's father arrived in Decorah with the result that the girls returned homeward.
