Goad Words for fin Algdfia Institution- Ed. Balky eh Lymbh—Misceila* neous Northwest News. The co-operative creameries are organizing over the state to resist the attempt to make them amenable to the income tax. In Kossuth county nothing has yet been done, hut in various counties associations are being formed. Although the creameries are not run for profit and really do not make a profit they are held to not bo exempt. Collector Kelley of Sioux City so ruled and he is now sustained by the Washington authorities. Acting Commissioner G. W. Wilson of the internal revenue department snys: "Creameries of the co-operative kind do not come under the exemptions extended to certain specified corporations by section 32 of the income tax law, and are therefore liable to the 2 per cent, tax on net orofits above the actual operating and business expenses; and it must he observed that these expenses must be actual arid not estimated." Good lawyers say the tax cannot be collected. A RULING THAT SETTLES IT. Samuel Mayne of Bancroft has received a letter from Revenue Collector Kelley which is likely to settle the question for co-operative creameries in Iowa. In behalf of the Seneca creamery, which consulted him, he included the cost of all the milk handled in reporting the year's expenses. Mr. Kelley says this is correct. If it is of course no creamery will have an income to be taxed. This is an important matter and Mr. Mayne and the Seneca creamery seem to have struck the right theory and settled a very important question for the state. An Algonn Institution. Emmetsburg Reporter: The second semi-annual report of the Algona Loan & Deposit association was recently issued and it is needless to say it was a good one. The examination was made by Homer A. Miller, state bank examiner, and he reports the association to be in splendid condition. Their loans are small, averaging only $410 each. Their books are kept in a complete manner and none of the directors or officers are in any way indebted to the association. A dividend of 14.73 per cent, has been declared for six months ending January 1, and has been credited to the individual stockholders. This is a splendid showing and certainly will do much to recommend the association to the public as a sure,' safe, and profitable place to invest their small savings. _ _ Ed. Hnlloy on Koch's Lymph. The Britt Tribune refers to Mr. Lund's securing a chemical analysis of his milk, and says: "Mr. Lund is doing just what he ought to do. If his herd is affected with a contagious disease he will doubtless be as anxious as anyone to have it stamped out even if he has to sacrifice his herd. But a trial of an experiment that may or may not mean anything is entirely too slim evidence to ask Mr. Lund to kill a good portion of his cattle. A few years ago Dr. Koch's lymph was going to bring a dead cat to life that lay in the bottom of a well. 'The cat came back,' but not that particular feline." Swea City Has Incorporated. Swea City carried incorporation by a vote of 40 to 16, It took in territory like Des Moines or Chicago, for the Herald says: " Nearly all of the votes against were from the farmers whose land had been included in the territory and who did not take kindly to having the arms of the incorporation thrown around them. They did not think it to their advantage to be in the incorporation, and the Herald does not think it to the advantage of the town to have all the territory in. We think a mile square is territory enough and hope the matter can be adjusted as soon as the officers are elected and the council organized." ___ Pr, Gay lord of Mason City Paralyzed, Twenty years ago Dp.

IT MAY DO AS MUCH FOR YOU. Fred Miller of Irving, 111., writes that he had a severe kidney trouble for many years with severe pains in his back, and also that his bladder was, affected. He tried many so-called kidney cures, but without any good result. About a year ago he began the use of Electric Bitters and found relief at once. Electric Bitters is especially adapted to the cure of all kidney and liver troubles, and often gives almost instant relief. One trial will prove our statement.

Joslah had come home lato from town, and after he had fed and watered the mules I sot a lunch on the kitchen table by the fire and made him a cup of Japan tea in a chiny cup to warm him up and make him feel cheerful like, and then perceded to tell him about my visit with Mrs. Potts. "Josiah," says I, (speakin' kinder mild like, though we've been married nigh onto ten years), " do you know Mrs. Potts was here today and she was feelin' dreadful sad." "Mrs. Potts?" says Josiah, "who is Mrs. Potts?" Why, don't you know?" says I; "she's the old woman who invented the sad iron." "Sad iron," says Josiah, soak- in' his biskit in his tea, " what is sad iron? I've heerd tell o' sad wimmin, but I never heerd o' iron feelin' sad afore." "Why, Josiah," says I, "that's what we edicated folks call a flat iron." "Yes," says Josiah, smilin' a sarcas- tick smile, " that's what edicated folks ironed my shirt with; anyway it looked awful sad." I portended I didn't hear him, but went right on. " Mrs. Potts said she was down town yisterday and went into Mr. Doxsee?s hardware store, where Mr.?Winkle used to keep, and tried to sell some more of her sad irons"' —'flat irons,' says Jostah—"and Mr. Doxsee showed her one of his new sad irons with an asbestos lining, which keeps the iron hot and the handle cold, and the mlnlt she sot her eyes onto it she busted into tears and said' she was just like Othello or.sum other man that Shakespere or sum other man wrote about who had lost his job." "Mrs. Potts, you know, jtned the church after she got through inventing and she says she must admit that that there asbestos sad iron is the finest thing she had ever sot eyes onto. Now, Josiah," says I, "you know Huldy's Mary is gotn' to git married next week, and one of them sets of sad irons would be a real nice weddin' present. And Josiah," says I, (speakin' lovin' like), " jes git me a set too, so's your shlrt'll look real nice when you go to Deacon Brown's donation. There's only one place In town you can git them—at Mr. Doxsee's hardware store." .<$ 1 ,'**! yj . w3 !i X <>/, . >* >*"' M ';' ',>• fa '/ YOUR PATRONAGE RESPECTFULLY SOLICITED, ,® i W.J.
