McFarlane. The resolution charged the lieutenant governor with securing legislative advantages and gains for certain railroad, public utility, and other Interests, in violation of his trust and of law. Representative Short, of Woodbury, was the chief author of the resolution, and he led the fight In its behalf,on the House floor. It was well' known by members at the present session that the Senate, over which -Mr. McFarlane presides, was f not in sympathy with the investigation, and many members In the House felt that'the charges,were of such far-fetched nature that the •most that could possibly come ol adoption of the resolution would be ill feelings, wa'sted efforts, and wasted time. Hence S2 members voted to lay the measure on the table and I was one of them. Legislative Hour Costs $1500. • The sincerity of those who desired an investigation cannot be ques- lf It can unearth the reason tioned. I, however, fail to see the A "^ "" consistency of these people' who pose as, exponents of economy when they insist on such a wild-goosi chase at the expense of the people. Some statistician has compiled data which tends to show that every hour of a legislative eession cost the taxpayers $1,500. If such is' the case thousands of dollars could have been spent on this investigation, an< the accomplishment would hav been exactly nothing.

Mrs. Bers, however, is up and around and feeling well. ' T, C, SHERMAN'S BROTHER TO BE EL PASO'S MAYOR Ray Sherman, youngest brother ot T. C. Sherman, was nominated for Mayor o£ El Paso, Tex., by a '5 to- 1 victory in the democratic primaries February 21. The election will take? place April 14, and there are no op^ posing candidates. Mr. Sherman WM brought up at L»ivermore, and later was city editor and editorial writer for the Fort. Dodge Messenger. Seventeen yearB ago he went to BL Paso, where he has since been engaged in the., real estate business* Bl Paso is a city of more than 100,000 population. Weisbrod judged exhibits in the wo man's department, and Mr. Schenck ucigod corn. This was Livermore's corn show. Much enthusiasm and lommunity spirit was shown. T JHESE PICTURES, featured on the Des Moines Register's farm page a few days ago, are of J. C. Mawdsley and the beautiful farm home .and improvements which he has built up southeast of A!gona. The site is the old Mann homestead, widely known, in earlier times. From Algona the road branches off at the fairgrounds corner, winding romantically through native woods down .to a sylvan stream and up a long hill. The woods border the farm and the home spot is a charming bit of nature. The buildings are mostly of brick, including the'ho use, and everything is modern. Mr. Mawdsloy, who, besides farming, is manager of the Irvington elevator and lumber yard, added the'crowning touch to his remarkable achievements last year by persuading Sadie Weiler, of T?oir.beck. for' five years an Algona teacher, to take charge -• •his beautiful home at Christmas time.' v of ., 'who eats eggs, it's too <*g yolk off a smooth «h»ven o—o f' ore the <«h adjourns, why Ve Som e zest-filled senator representative introduce a fcr a Graduated cutting? poesn't seem right that we old bald- much **' for committed to enact s to reduce H ving expenses. o — o eone nore many of them. Why then wast time on something that is defeate before we start to consider it? Example of Corporate Greed. At present a bill known as Senate File 54 Is causing considerable concern among House members who place public interests above private greed. The acknowledged underlying, purpose of the proposal is to secure for a private corporation the ultimate right to construct a dam and canal below Moscow (Iowa) which would make possible the deflection of a large part of the current of the Cedar river from is present channel to a canal which would discharge into the Mississippi near Muscatine without returning it to the original bed of the river as the present law requires. The Cedar 'is a meandered stream, consequently It Is the property of the people of Iowa. Therefore the bill proposes to do nothing less than turn public property over to a private corporation for private gain. . Bonnstettcr Against Bill. -We.feel that passage of this bill would establish an extremely dangerous precedent and that the dam would be an injustice and a menace to many citizens, for in low water, when water would be withdrawn from the river, ponds and cut-off lakes alongside the stream would be drained and the breeding and feeding places of fish and the mussels destroyed. There is no need for more power in this section. The power of the Keokuk dam has never been completely ueed, for lack of customers, and it has not brought about prom- is.ed low rates. And even if the gentlemen In sympathy with the project 'pretend that their motives in supporting the proposal of this $10,000,000 dam are lower power rates there is no reason to believe that the public would be the beneficiary, judging from results of the Keokuk damv ' * «,= "This, bill has already passed the Senate, and high.preseure lobbyists sparing ho efforts to convert the House. "V" Investigation Illuminating. It is truly a revelation to listen to proceedings of the investigation committee as affairs at the state university are brought into the limelight. I have had several surprises caused by what has been brought to the surface. However, I think I had better refrain from dto- cuBBing this matter at presen/. TThe county assessor bill is loaded with dynamite, so far as many member* of'the House are « oncerned ' J shall discuss this fully in a later le Sy r< the time you read this letter ouf eprlng vacation will almost be over.

However, it gives me an opportunity to post myself on many measures that I 'have been unable to study because of lack of time. .letter next 'week. .

Farm Bureau to Bo Revlved- The Union township Farm Bureau is going into action again, after a rest period. The social phase ol the organization will probably not improve its past record, However the officers are planning definite ob jectives for this year.

EUftENE. pEBMANElfT WAV! 8 ' Conversation Advertising is a wonderful power in creating a demand for goods you want to sell, but the merchan- . dise must have real me.rit if you get repeat sales. Advertising will help ,you make the first sale. Your goods must be standard and what people want, at prices they wish to pay, if you are going to build up a lasting business. A great deal of advertising is simply conversation. It doee not mean a thing.' " When you describe an article as double what it Is worth you are simply throwing your money away. To be effective your ad. has got to be truthful. Standard goods at small profits make satisfied customers, and repeat' customers is what builds up a business. The reason that Neville's store is crowded Saturdays and every day Is because we sell standard gpods for less money than any etore In the State of Iowa, We really do this and can prove .it. . ' For instance, }n men's shoe^ and oxfords we sell Freeman's Famous Five and Friendly Five; also the Atlantic $5.00 shoes. In ladies' we handle Smartstyl Inc., True Tread^ Sally Sweet Suspension Arch, Silver Sewed Six, and others. All of these shoes, both men's and women's, are sold by the leading shoe stores in Iowa and Minnesota, and they make a big fuss over them at $5.00 and $6.00 a pair. We sell these sho^s and slippers at $3.95 without blow or bluster. We give you a good fit ^n these up-to-date styles and then ask. ' you to buy them or give the seating room to tb,e next customer. , ' . . No coaxing, no, begging, no sales talk, just honest shoes for honest customers. A. square deal for everybody. Quick sales, small' profits—big bargains — that is what keeps customers coming to Neville's. Our shoes and slippers are all new, no old stock to work pff on you. We, have plenty ofr them and can fit anyone that -vyants to be fitted.
