PAGE TWO. THE POSTVTLLE HERALD, POSTVILLE. IOWA. THURSDAY, JUNE 11, rom Our Exchanges Firecx-ackcrs are prohibited in all state parks and preserves. The New Hampton swimming pool was opened for the season Inst Sunday. The democratic judicial convention will be held at West Union, June 16th. Thieves took ten tubs of butter from the Edgewood creamery last Wednesday night. The pouring of concrete on highway No. 93, near Sumner, started last Thursday. The Citizens State Bank of Ossian paid a 20 per cent dividend to holders of trust certificates Monday of this week. This is the third dividend paid on these certificates. Hon. Robert Hufschmidt Lansing's oldest resident, passed on May 29th at the age of 92 years. He had been a resident of that city since shortly after the close of the Civil War. . There's no use in "going up in the air" at Decorah if Policeman Alton Nelson of that city wants to arrest you, for that gentleman has just been granted an airplane pilot's license and will get you anyway. Congressman Zioncheck certainly talked and acted like a crazy man, says "On the Air" in the Independence Conservative, but when you look at a picture of Mrs. Zioncheck you think maybe he wasn't so crazy after all. Otto Lau picked two boxes of strawberries in his garden Wednesday, June 2, says the Northwood Anchor, which he feels is a good record for this season. He states that the prospects are good for a fine berry crop . with favorable weather from now on. Memorial, wreaths were made for seven cemeteries by the Quandahl Legion Auxiliary unit, says the Waukon Democrat. Wreaths were made for twenty-six veterans' graves in the cemeteries at Dorchester, Waterloo Ridge, Highland, Big Canoe and Iowa River. D. E. Rathert, one of the local Isaac Walton followers, succeeded in landing a rainbow trout of unusual size at Lake Kakagi, located 60 miles north of Eno, Canada, while on a fishing trip two weeks ago. The trout measured 36 inches in length and weighed 30 pounds when landed. Frank McKinney brought a stalk of corn to this office early Tuesday morning that measured 24 inches, laying the corn down it measured 36 inches to tip of leaves, says the Arlington News. This corn was drilled and wasn't the largest or smallest in the patch of eleven acres, but was a good average size. Beat Fayette county? Not often. Under the authority of a city ordinance enacted in September, 1932, city officials Sunday afternoon ordered the ferry Rob Roy H stopped from landing passengers at Prairie du Chien, says the Press of that city. The ferry was ordered stopped until the owner, "Cap" Freeman, complied with the ordinance requiring the payment of the $25 yearly license fee for any ferry operating on the .river and unloading or receiving passengers or cars along the Prairie du Chien waterfront. The public is asked not to pick wild flowers in Iowa's state parks. Parks were established because such plants and shrubs are present and the parks are set aside for their protection. One of the best thoughts to carry with you when visiting a state park is that instituted by the Federated Women's Clubs and Garden Club in their protection of the wild flowers, which reads, "Love them and leave them" and "To leave the woods and parks as beautiful as you find them is outdoor good manners." This is going to be an interesting campaign in which the voter will need to use his head, look out for his own interests and forget how grandpap voted, says "On the Air" in the Independence Conservative. For one thing, the record of every man who has held office is going to be scrutinized, and some are going to be sorry they voted that way. My guess is that the voters who have had least to say in the primary are going to be the ones who are going to have most to say in the general election. If you accommodate transients in your home it would be well to note the license plate number in which the paying guests arrive, says Mrs. E. A. M. in her West Union Union "Chaff." Recently a woman driving alone wa3 given lodging over night in West Union and left early in the morning. Incidentally the landlady's purse disappeared also. Not so long ago a typewriter machine was missing after a man and a woman had been given lodging for the night They also left before the family arose in the morning. In both cases the number on the license plate had not been noticed. The postoftice at Guttenberg has been advanced from third to second class, the order becoming effective on July 1st. Supt. L. A. Steger of the West Union schools has resigned his position to become sales manager for a Waterloo auto company. The city council of Waukon at its meeting Tuesday evening, says the Waukon R. & S„ increased the beer license fee from $100 to $200, effective July 1st. William Ball of Garnavillo killed a rattlesnake in the Buck Creek neighborhood last week that carried sixteen rattles, or nearly enough to make a necklace. Miss Monnie Whalen has just resigned her position as mathematics teacher in the 7th and 8th grades of the Decorah public schools after having served in that capacity for 38 years, and will devote her time to the care of her aged invalid mother. A car in the garage at the Will Wells home at Cresco caught fire last Wednesday afternoon and was the occasion for calling out the fire department. The peculiar part o£ it was the car had not been out of the garage since last December, but in some unaccountable manner it took fire in the front seat. We presume this is another mysterious blaze, started by an English sparrow that had picked up a lighted cigarette stub and was enjoying a "wee bit of a smoke." "Decorah was allotted $24,350 for a swimming pool. Please inform Mayor George A. Baker and others." The foregoing telegram to J. C. Hammond of the Decorah Journal from Congressman Fred Biermann brought definite word last Thursday that the allocation for the Decorah municipal swimming pool had been made. The city council is expected to formally approve the location of the swimming pool at Highway 52 just east of the Luther College football field or north of the Emil Rosenthal residence. In fact citizens of Decorah have already purchased three acres of land by popular subscription, says the Journal, and donated to the city of Decorah parks department, and Luther College has donated two acres. Sixteen Fayette Boy Scouts will leave next Sunday afternoon on a 2,000 mile trip by trailer through eight eastern and mid-eastern states. Concerning the trailer the Fayette Leader says: "Because 16 scout dads donated labor and material a $400 trailer was constructed at a cost of only $80, to become the first trailer of its kind in the country. Fully equipped it weighs 1360 pounds, and 1600 pounds of boys bring the total weight well within the limit of 3499 pounds set by state law. The trailer is fully covered by insurance. It will accommodate ten boys traveling, and will serve as sleeping quarters for eight. The remaining boys will sleep in pup tents. On a trial run to Columbus, Ohio, the trailer proved very successful." The Winneshiek County Chapter of the American Red Cross has perfected plans to open the first of a number of highway first aid stations here, according to Rev. Paul Koren, relates the Decorah Journal. The maintenance of such stations is part of a national Red Cross program to render immediate and effective assistance to persons injured on the highway. Iowa has 26 first aid stations. Phil Johnson's service station will be the first such station to operate in this county. Dr. A. F. Fritchen will instruct two employes of the Johnson station in the full standard course of first aid required by the national organization. Each highway station is equipped with a 24-unit kit, Thomas splint recommended by the college of physicians and surgeons, and a stretcher and blanket provided by the local Red Cross chapter. OFF!

Jackson Junction' is n unique village, says the Northwood Anchor. It's territory includes six square miles and its officials, with two exceptions, all live on farms. The town was Incorporated back in the mulct law days for the purpose of having a saloon, and still functions as an incorporation although the population is only 34. The village postofficc is the only one in Iowa in a basement location. Farmers and tobacco growers in Crawford county will share next week in the distribution of $27,009.30 for the second payment on tobacco contracts under the AAA, says the Prairie du Chien Press. Three hundred and fifty-four checks were received by the county agent's office Wednesday morning to be prepared for distribution and the remaining 281 checks were to be received before the end of the week. The 354 checks received Wednesday represented payments totaling $15,187.42 and the 281 checks will make up the difference of $11,821.98. "While making a houses to house delivery of circulars Wednesday afternoon, Frederick, 15-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Connie Rosenthal, was bitten by a vicious dog."—Decorah Journal. The foregoing is just another argument in favor of newspaper advertising. Why expose the youth of the nation to the possibilities of hydrophobia, or having their flesh torn and lacerated by the bite of ugly dogs when the same may be averted by .having your ad inserted in your local newspaper and brought into the homes of the community through the regular channel—the U. S. mail. It will be remembered that when the Elkader high school building and contents were destroyed by fire a few weeks ago the high school band lost all of its equipment, including instruments, and this disaster was the occasion of a very unusual section in the Memorial Day parade, according to the Elkader Register, which states: "One pathetic part of the parade was the high school band, which marched in uniform but with only two instruments—one of which had been borrowed, and the other, the bass drum, which was not in the high school building when it was destroyed by fire." The art of frying an egg so that it is tender and appetizing and calls for another is not possessed by many amateur cooks. The secret is to cook the egg over a slow flame. High heat will toughen the egg and make the white rubbery before the yoik has coagulated. Perfect fried eggs may usually be produced in this way. Heat the frying pan, melt butter in it and pour in the egg which has been broken into a saucer. Turn the flame low and baste the egg with butter until the yolk just begins to coagulate. This is the time to remove the egg from the stove unless there is a particular objection to soft eggs. If every one of our farmers, north and south, could put more time on the raising of garden truck for his own table, producing cream and butter for the consumption of his own family, plenty of ham, bacon and canned meat to fill up his own children, plenty of apples and bush fruits, not to mention a few flowers for the family to enjoy, and would stop raising quite such big cash crops, we could take care of our surplus right on our own farms, says Wallace's Farmer. -Many farm families could live in considerably better shape than they now do if they could only take time to raise the right things for family use. ih'^W YEAR 'ROUND '' -**g" TRACTOR It's fun to run! That describes the Allis-Chalmers Model "WC" —- biggest tractor hit in years. Comfortable . . easy to operate . . lots of speed and power. High traction differential — puts the power to wheel with the best footing. Five miles an hour on the plow; 10 miles an hour on the road. Quick-Hitch implements. Adjustable tread. Dependable power take-off. Quick acting power lift. Truly an all-year, all-crop tractor. Ask for a demonstration. SEE US BEFORE J. P. ELUS PostvlUe, Iowa :•• Fishermen may soon ho spared the trouble of digging for-angleworms by coaxing them out of the ground by electricity. Recently an Iown man stuck metal rods into the ground about three feet apart, and then connected the rods to a battery. When the metnl was placed in the ground nbout a foot deep and the juice turned on worms by the hundreds began crawling up jOut of the ground. Should anyone hereabouts try this scheme wo should be pleased to have reports on results. Bob Linnevold, one of Dccorah's up and coming golfers, shot n "gopher" while playing a round of golf Friday afternoon on the Silvercrest course, north of Decorah, says the Journal. He hit a terrific drive off the second tec and when the ball was about 50 feet from the tee the ball disappeared from view over a knoll. Eugene Simenson, who was working nearby, saw the ball disappear from view and became curious when it didn't bounce down the fairway. When he arrived at the spot he found a gopher lying beside the ball. The ball had struck the gopher, killing it instantly. A. L. Tester, professor of geology of the University of Iowa, was in Waukon Sunday and Monday and made soundings and other tests for the proposed artificial lake project, relates the Waukon Democrat. Mr. Tester reported the soundings for the dam foundation very good, and spoke favorably of the area proposed for the construction of the lake. He also took several soil samples, which were taken to Iowa City, where laboratory tests will be made to determine whether the soil will be fit for filling in the dam. It is expected that his report will be returned this week and the project will then be presented for WPA approval. A jury in the Winneshiek county district court returned a verdict last Thursday night in favor of Joe Russell of Clermont and against W. A. Lechensky and the Waukon Bottling Works in the sum of $5,230.00, for personal injuries sustained by Mr. Russell on September 1, 1934, as a result of a collision between a car driven by Russell with a truck owned by the Waukon Bottling Works, says the Decorah Journal. The accident occurred in the town of Clermont on primary road 18 at a street intersection, the Russell car having stalled after entering the highway and was struck by the truck while an effort was being made to start the car, Russell being thrown to the pavement sustaining injuries causing a partial paralysis of his left arm and leg of a permanent nature. * Well, the Iown primary is over, and as was said by the man who gave his note for a long overdue account, "that settles that," says the Osage Press. Apparently less than a halt of the normal vote of either party turned out to express its choice of candidates, and looking over the results in general I am tempted to say that it was the most intelligent half that stayed away. Dean Austin, 19, Randalin high school youth, was drowned Inst Wednesday afternoon, May 27, in the made lake at Echo Volley state park, West Union, says the Arg6, The drowning WHS due, it is supposed, to cither cramp or heart failure. The youth was graduated from the Randalia high school the Friday evening before his death. At 5:00 a. m.
