Here i what the secretary of the LaPorte fcity Commercial Club says about the (own spirit: j "A town that never ha3 anything to io in a public way is on the way to he cemetery. Any citizen who will to nothing for the town is helping to iig the grave. A man that curses the own furnishes the coffin. The man po is so selfish as to have no time from his affairs to give to civic affairs is making the shroud, and the pan who will not advertise is driving the hearse. The man who is always bulling back from any public enterprise throws bouquets on the grave, he man who is so stingy as to be jhowling hard times preaches the fu- jberal sermon, sings the doxology. and pus the town lies buried from all sorrow and care. Attend the commercial club meetings and be born jsain." fMJRiE DU CHIEN IS MECCA FOR WEEK-END SIGHTSEERS Iowa and Wisconsin are giving in- reased attention to history during 1936 and both states are giving recog- ation to various centennial observes. Iowa has just observed the ntennial of the publication of the rst newspaper in the state and Wis- osin will observe the 100th anni- ersary of its formation as a territory luring the coming months. There is, perhaps, no place which as played quite as important a part in the history of the two states as his- oric Prairie du Chien. Here was the at trading center of the northwest, iter with the booming steamboat lays and the coming of the railroad, jjkousands of emigrants who settled northern Iowa and northwestern isconsin. passed through Prairie du hien. That place was the last place In the United States over which the ritish flag floated. There it was that Father Marquette fld Joliet first looked upon the Mis- 'isstppi and directly across the river t McGregor was made the only Span- h land grant north of the Missouri iver. At Prairie du Chien is located the West permanent church building in e entire northwest territory. Ten ousand southwestern Wisconsin and ortheastern Iowa persons are expected in Prairie du Chien Saturday and iunday to attend the celebration of he building of this church, St. Gabriel 's Catholic church. High church of­ fals will take part in the two-day lelebration. One of the major events n the program will be a pontifical 'Eh mass Sunday morning. At the same time they are attending his huge celebration, thousands of fce visitors will view Villa Louis, he restored ante-bellum home of teules L.

Christian Science Churches "Ancient and Modern Necromancy, alias Mesmerism and Hypnotism, Denounced" will be the subject of thc- Lesson-Sermon in all Churches ol Christ, Scientist, on Sunday, May 31. The Golden Text is from Jonah 2:8, "They that observe lying vanities forsake their own mercy." The Lesson-Sermon comprises quotations from the Bible and trom the Christian Science textbook. "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. One of the Bible citations reads: "And when Jesus was come into Peter's house, he saw his wife's mother laid, and sick of a fever. And he touched her hand, and the fever left her: and she arose, and ministered unto them. When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with his word, and healed all that were sick" (Matt. S: 14-16). Among the selections from the Christian Science textbook is the following: "Jesus cast out evil and healed the sick, not only without drugs, but without hypnotism, which Is the reverse of ethical and pathological Truth-power" (p. 1S5). CARD OF THANKS We wish to extend our heartfelt thanks for the many acts of kindness extended us during the illness and passing of our beloved wife and mother. ' JAMES UTLEY AND FAMILY. Many inquiries have been received at the County Agent's office as to the method of killing pocket gophers, the Fayette Leader reports. Probably the best method of poisoning these pests is to cut sweet potatoes, parsnips or carrots into small pieces about one inch long and one-half inch square, and sprinkle powdered strychnine over them. By the use of a probe, such as an endgate rod, or broom stick, locate the main runway. After dropping the bait in the runway close the probe hold with dirt. Choose runways which are in use as evidenced by the new or fresh mounds. To be successful in getting rid of pocket gophers takes the co-operation of everyone in the community. Why not get everyone around you who has gophers to combat them? QUALITY DRY CLEANING WE CLEAN CLOTHES CLEAN! SPECIAL!!

FRANKLIN TOWNSHIP FARMER DISPATCHES 40 RATTLESNAKES What we believe is the largest number of rattlesnakes killed in one day were exterminated Sunday, May 10, by Page Dull, a farmer residing in the south part of Franklin township, with the assistance of George Auer, his hired man, says the Waukon Demd- crat. The snakes were killed on the Hickory Creek and Hall's Creek bluffs, where there are two or three dens of the reptiles. The largest den is located less than a mile from Mr. Dull's home on the east bluff of Hall's Creek and nearly every year the dangerous rattlers are sought among the rocks on this bluff as they come forth from their dens to sun themselves and shed their skin before venturing into the adjoining woodlands and fields in quest of food, etc. Mr. Dull stated that he killed 14 of the reptiles under one rock and the rest were found near the dens under the edges of rocks. He brought the rattles to Waukon Tuesday and County Auditor John H. Palmer issued him a check for $20 in payment of bounty, netting him a nice income for his day's work. And a good day's work it was, for he not only benefitted from the amount he received in bounty, but is due a considerable amount of credit for ridding the community of such a large number of the poisonous rattlers. The chances for a $91,000 flood control project for Dry Run in and near Decorah, to be constructed by the federal governrnent, look increasingly good, says Public Opinion. A year ago we were told that this project would not get to first base; information received the past few days indicates that it is already on second base or farther. This project is included in the omnibus flood control bill now under consideration in the U. S. senate, in which are numerous Mississippi valley flood control projects. The bill is being considered as a whole, making it difficult to eliminate any of its projects without endangering the entire bill. It is a toss up with a world traveler whether to spend his vacation in the Ethiopian war zone or on the American highways where 36,400 persons were killed in automobile accidents last year, says the West Union Union. The odds, if any, are in favor of the Ethiopian battlefront, but the roads in America are better than those in Ethiopia. t FAVORITE SPORT AWA1TSY0U MINNESOTA Come right along — Marvelous Minnesota is MADE for vacations. 10,000 lakes, virgin forests, whirling trout streams.
