• niniini rmimmtmimni Style Chatter •. (being the second of a series of intimate talks with our customers) When you start out shopping for your new costume, do you think first of the price or the distinctiveness of the garment? Our prices this fall will include all of the ranges to which you are accustomed with the exception of the very low end. You will find no dresses here to sell at $5.00. But you will find dresses that reflect the new style tendencies. You will find the Abroad shoulders, the tight sleeves, the beautiful mould- ed skirts. The materials include both sheer, novelty wools and rough novelty crepe silks. You will like the courteous service you get in our ready-to-wear department. Our salesladies are trained to sell you only garments which look well on your figure, which flatter. Whether you buy a hat or an expensive coat, this same frankness goes into each and every sale. Come in as the new things arrive—or call 281 and instruct the saleslady to phone you when we get what you are looking for. A personal, individual service goes with every garment we sell. Remember, we are going back to the good, old days of QUALITY MERCHANDISE and you're right at home at Chrischilles & Herbst's when it comes to GOOD APPAREL i m m m m n n 11 - i • WEEK AT T WORLD'S GIVEN!

Ohms Hold Family Reunion— The Ohm family had a reunion Sunday at the Ambrose A. Call State park, 122 attending. A big i dinner was spread beneath trees.

D. who was not able to come, and sister, Mrs. Ulrika Behrens, now deceased, and .their father, the family settled in Kossuth in the fall of •1876. In attendance at the reunion were: Herman Ohm Sr., Lone Rock, and his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren—the Robert and Leo Schmidts, the William Buss family, the H. F.

The picture appeared in (ihe Des Moines Register. [From the Bmmetsburg Detaocfat,J iLast week work wad commenced on the decorating of the Interior of Father DoWbersteln's fine'Church, Sta. Peter and Paul's, at Wdst Bend. Father Dobbersteln's brother from Carroll, whd is an expert in the line of frescoing, Is doing the work. The task will be a tre-, mendous one arid will take several years to complete. Father Dobberstein does not expect to do much more than the front of the church this year. The large dome over the main altar is to be covered with an Immense picture. The border section of the walls and ceilings will be done in gold leafing. The entire painting program will cost thousands of dollars. Hence it will be necessary for Father Dobtoersteln to do a little at a time. (Father Dobberstein has received Ills 14 small stations of the cross. The work on these stations was done in Venice, Italy, iby a German artist. They are made up of small stones in various colors. All of the work was done by. hand. Jt, was; necessary for the. artist to spend 1 an entire month on each station. Hliey should be seen to appreciate, their beauty as a work of art. The Grotto of the Nativity, built in the north wail of the church and completed a year or so ago, is really the finest work.,of art on the grounds. It would be classed as a super-masterpiece by any of the' great art critics of, the world. Father Dobberstein spent 100 days in construction of the Grotto of the Nativity. Me used over 100 sacks of stone in its construction. While working on this piece of art Father Dobberstein toad a narrow escape from death. He was placing sone stones in the celling and was standing on a scaffold. A visitor, who was viewing the church called to him and asked some information. (Father Dobberstein • turned quickly to answer .him, lost his (balance, and fell. His quick thinking and his ability to protect himself prevented him from striking his head on the cement floor below. This is just one of many instances when Father Dobberstein's life has been in danger while working at a high point and bothered with questions by spectators. (Father Dobberstein is at present working on the large section of wall just south of the Casino, and also on the Grotto of the Tomb, which is just north of the stations' of the cross section. The large cararra marble statues for the outside stations of the cross have not yet been shipped from Italy. Father Dobberstein is not ready for.them, and as 'he has no place to- store .hem fte felt it best to wait until some later date. . ONLY QUARTET LEFT IN z.*£ssrs£sss\x Lsr - <«»- w« Pneumatic tire efficiency provided for tractors last year has now been extended to farm machinery. For years farm machines have jolted slowly over rough fields, limited in speed 'by the steel wheels with which they were equipped; but introduction of a new combine harvester, which cuts and threshes grain in one operation and designed for use with Goodyear tires, forecasts a revolution in farm machinery design. i The low pressure tires on which the combine is mounted minimize shocks to such an extent that" the old speed for harvesting machinery is stepped up considerably and the capacity of the machine is increased, according to engineers o£ the Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. In addition to increasing the speed of the machine, use of pneumatic tires played an important part in reducing its cost to a figure appreciably than previous large machines. Due to the speed made possible by the pneumatic tires, however, it can do as much work in a given length of time as larger combines. An innovation is increasing width of the threshing cylinder to equal that of the cutter bar. The stalks of grain go directly into the cylinder head first, and the width of the straw stream is always'the same as the width of the swath cut by the sickle—an ideal long sought ,by all designers of threshing machinery in use since the flail: The smaller size of the combine, coupled with the decreased amount of power required to operate the cutting, threshing and cleaning mechanism make it possbile for any two-plow power-take-off tractor to be used in its operation. "Air tired tractors, which have E™ «?° ,;° +a fi f Ure a PP reciabl y been m ^e for some months and 10 ^L^ a " 0 ^ a L 0 l^?. e , r . c ° m A ines - n ™ the *"- «red combine, set a , "There is no reason why the farm machinery industry-should sjt back and allow developments of present day engineering to pass Jt by. We feel that we should adopt new automotive ideas in farm machinery, especially when they not only reduce the cost but also increase the output." Designed for lightness and effi- goal in the new era of farm machinery design, the ultimate purpose of which is the lowering of crop production costs and a reduction of the farmer's investment in equipment," Merritt concluded. The combine, which will harvest soy beans as well as wheat, oats and other grains, has met with wide praise following load for a tractor to pull on pneumatic tires — and is smaller and more compact —( *•**£•*»* V4UW41I. \J± agriculture officials, university professors and farm machinery experts.
