MINERAL SPRINGS BOTTLING WORKS Humboldt, Iowa R. C. Bellows, Prop. Sit Down Sit down strikes, like other contagious diseases, are spreading and likely to become disagreeable. This morning at our house no breakfast I asked the good wife why. She explained that she and some other ladles were on a sit down strike and that there would be no breakfast for husbands that stay out later than 9 o'clock. She also stated that she wanted shorter hours, better living conditions and that I would have to get up mornings and build the fire. After thoughtful consideration I am fixing up a buzzer to each chair In the house and attaching It to an electric wire. After today I think this old girl will find herself on a standing up strike. This is not a strike of labor against capital. It la a case of the boss against an Impossibility. I could do my own cooking but we are so busy at the store, I have no time for house work. New spring goods are rolling In by the dray load. The store Is being filled from cellar to garret with shoe* and clothe* bought at old prices. They are go- Ing on the shelves and will be sold at old prices. No high prices or sit down strikes at Neville's. We are all up on our toes, vary much alive to what our customers want and always lootdnf' for a food buy from the whole**!* houM*. . •port oxfords. It wm» a lucky buy and we are passing the benefit on to our customer*. They are a regular nationally advertised $3.60 line. Our price for any *Ue, any pair, will be 9LM.

Says Town's Worth Judged by Excellence of Its Newspapers (Marshalltown Times-Republican) There's an old saying that a mart is known by the company he keeps. Just as aptly it might be said that a town Is known by its newspapers. There is close relationship between a community and its press. If one is good the other also is good. And vice versa. ""After a lapse In years of close contact With Iowa' exchanges and return thereto, this editor Is Impressed by the improvement shown in many of the newspapers of Iowa, both daily and weekly. Where there has been no noticeable improvement in the way of news and advertising coverage, it is safely assumed that the community has not advanced. Occasionally there are outward indications that the editor and publisher might better be engaged in ditch digging or some like occupation. Most of the weekly newspapers of Iowa which excel as mediums of news dissemination also have strong editorial pages, although there are a few exceptions where successful publishers do not believe editorial comment on national and local affairs is essential. Experience of most publishers of community newspapers cuases them to hold to the contrary, however. They are convinced public issues should >e fairly discussed in manner that THE SHOE MAN Mr. and Mrs. John Flnnestad were Emmetsburg visitors Saturday. Miss Dorothy Wlchtendahl spent Sunday with her sister, Mrs. Kenneth Bollinger. Lorena, Raymond,- Ella, Harold and Dorothy Dreyer were entertained at the John Ruhnke home on Friday evening.

Some of the editorial departments in the rural weeklies would grace the pages of many of the publications which are Issued daily from the larger cities and towns. Many there are, however, who fail to fully appreciate their community newspapers. They take them for granted—as . something about which they need not give heed or concern. They fall to realize that into every issue goes intense labor, mental and physical, at top speed, especially In the daily field. An intricate organization of workers, made up of various departments, must be co-ordinated to meet the time deadline of trains and trucks and carriers for delivery to subscribers. The old theatrical and circus tradition that the "show must go on" no matter what happens or what may hamper applies equally to dally newspaper production. If one of the many workers falls out the gap in the ranks is immediately closed. All the happenings of the world must be chronicled accurately with an eye on the clock. The degree of accuracy attained is remarkable when the time element is considered. An editor may err at Umes in his deductions and conclusions, yet the newspaper ns such Is entitled to high credit for the services rendered. UNION FAMILIES HONOR NEIGHBORS C.
