There is no place in the whole world aa good as Iowa. People who reside In this great stats are blessed with a great privilege. It is true that we have had a financial depression and that many citizens suffered, but conditions were not as bad as in other states. While we were passing through a period of depression, reports from other sections indicated great prosperity and we were led to believe that we were in an awful condition. Now Iowa is coming back Into her own and other states are suffering much worse than we did. In the east where great industries are curtailing'expenses thousands of families of laboring men do not know where their next meal is coming from. No such condition ever exisited in Iowa, where there is always plenty of food. California is now passing through a similar period and conditions are reported very bad. Thousands are out of employment, property values have decreased and money people who pur- decreased and many people who pu- It of lltUe value. A report by Babson says: "Iowa offers relatively the most fav- IOWA VS. MINNESOTA. The St. Paul Dispatch envies Iowa. The editor says that it Is "a glorified cornfield that keeps the Mississippi and Missouri river apart," but he concludes with the following: "The corn state has been frittering away too much tune converting discontented lowans Into contented Callfor- nlans. /For a large number of the inhabitants,, Iowa was a prairie purgatory from which the favored one emerged into a sun haloed California. Too many of those who sang, "We're from Iowa," responded to applause with an encore, "California, Here I Come." The broad reaches of gumbo mud was like 3. tangle foot flypaper, but it could not hold those who were lured westward by solar kisses. Iowa lifted itself out of the mud to go to California." The fact of the matter Is that Iowa corn fields do much to .support both California and Minnesota when Iowa people spend their winters in California and a part of their summers on Minnesota lakes. The people in northern Minnesota have their harvest when tourists from Iowa arrive and many of them would have mighty hard sledding If it were not for lowans visiting their Muscatlne Journal: It is ho trick at all to stand, &it or recline at any point on any street where traffic is fairly heavy after nightfall and see a dozen cars pass by within three quarters of 1 an hour, all having one or mote lights out of commission. Still others have them improperly focused so that they throw beams directly into the eyes of other motorists meeting them. It is dangerous. Any motorist will say that he would rather meet anything else than a car with only one headlight burning because he cannot tell until right near the car on which side the good light is located. Our paving, at least in the country, is none too wide and when the margin between is already small, one-eyed cars make it too small for comfort. With nonburning tall lights, possi- bilities of identification In case of accident, are limited and dangers of cars bumping into the preceding one Is increased. The skyscraping headlights are almost as bad. We are not advocating that these offenders be arrested but we do believe they should be stopped, warned, and made to have their lights put in proper shape. They should also be compelled to satisfy the officer that such work has been done by demonstrating the lights. After one warning, an arrest should follow with increasing penalties every time the offense is repeated. In the interests of safety this should be a year-round drive. Most of such lapses are due to carelessness but that very carelessness may be costly to the car driver or to innocent persons. THE COMPLETION OF MRS.

If they are ill and really in need the county and city can better afford to feed and care for them than can the individual. of the territory would not be self-supporting. Judge Lovrien Was Not Ousted. Humboldt Republican: An Associated Press dispatch from Emmetsburg last week stated that Judge Fred C. Lovrien had been "ousted" from the bench by the judicial convention. There was nothing in the article that bore out the head. Judge Lovrien was defeated in the convention as a candidate for the office that he occupies and to which he was appointed by Governor Hammill when Judge Cole resigned. But he was in no manner "ousted" from the bench or the convention. In fact, the word "ousted" means deposed, put out or deprived from. Judge Lovrien was not put off the bench or deprived from the bench or kept from anything that he has or had possessed. It is true that be was not nominated, But: that did s not.

Mrs. Rawson Sees the Wonders of Pompei and The Awe-Inspiring Mt. Vesnvins In Italy. that the convention commended bis work on the bench. There was & resolution introduced by former Judge D. ?, CoyJe'and adopted unanimously by tie convention that* read as follows: "Whereas, one of the accidents of >olitics seems about to remove Judge ?. C. Lovrien from the judgeship in judicial district at the end of his term, be it resolved by the delegates to this convention in convention assembled that we recognize in Judge F. C. Lovrien a fair, impartial, honest, upright and learned judge, and extend to him the heartiest good wishes of this convention." Mrs. E. J. Rawson has kindly consented to give the Upper Des Molnes-Republican another article on her foreign travels which have been of so much interest to our readers. In her article last week the tourists had completed a journey to the Pyramids and the Sphinx in Kgypt and were located in Cairo. Visit Lutheran Hospital. After visiting at the above places the party went to the Lutheran hos pltal and were shown around. The visited an Ohio woman who reoeivet a broken leg while sight-seeing in on of the mosques.

On March 25, the tourists went by rail to Alexandria in Egypt They passed through a very fertile country where the natives were harvesting alfalfa, using a sickle to cut it and then piling it on the back of a donkey. After the donkey was loaded all they could see of it was the feet. Water wheels were used in Irrigating the land and were run either by donkeys or camels.

But don't get excited, it is ''fool's gold," and of no commercial value in its present form.

The new one which is called, Phare, guides into the harbor ships from every nation on the globe. Cruise to Corfu. Prom Alexandria, the party cruised to Corfu, an island of olive groves and fit? trees basking in the breeze from the warm Ionian Sea, which is in the shelter of the Albanian mountains. Near the harbor is the Palace of Acfail- leion which was built for the Empress l Elizabeth of Austria. Avlona in Al- \ bania was seen. It is a quaint, ug- spoiled little town adorned with olive groves and minarets. The natives still pursue their primitive trades. "Queen of the Adriatic." A cruise was taken through the islands near Dalmatia and from there they went to Venice, which is called the "Queen of the Adriatic." Venice is one of the most romantic cities in the world. It is a perfect dream city of islets crowned with breautfiul arched bridges and blue lagoons. Charmin? houses with flowering balconies ocean trail leading between the mountains of Italy and Sicily, past the fabled Scylla and Charybdis, in view of Mt. Etna and the towering Stromboll, known as the "Lighthouse of the Mediterranean." On the way through th straits the boat anchored at-ihe town of Messina which is on one of the fin est harbors in the Mediterranean. Pic turesque ruins of the cathedrals an the university buildings which wer destroyed by an earthquake, enthralled the party. Past Capri and Sorrento. From Messina the party went up th coast past the island of Capri ant Sorrento and entered into the Bay o Naples, one of the beauty spots of thi world. Vesuvius towered above them Naples is a city which contains over three hundred churches. To Pompeii. Automobiles were taken from Naples to Pompeii, which is a distance o about ten miles. Pompeii was buried under the ashes of Mt Vesuvius over eighteen centuries ago. The country around it is very fertile. AH of the party went through the museum ant also the ruins of the city. There is nothing standing in Pompeii except the ruins. All the utensils and ovens and so forth were made of stone. The smoke from Vesuvius looked like smoke from Pompeii, bat when the people were on the boat at night it was like a bonfire and was very beautiful. Napoleon's Birthplace. From Naples they took a boat to Corsica, the island where Napoleon was bom. The house is st£Q standing and the natives are very proud of the fact that their island was his birthplace.

Lehigh Argus: The chautaquas in botli Port Dodge and Webster City this year were heavy losers financially, and this year marks the end of chautau- quas so far as these cities are concerned. The Webster City Freeman-Journal says: "The day of the chautauqua is apparently gone. It was a fine entertainment and educational feature in Its time but the world moves on and the things that are big and worth while today go into the discard tomorrow. So it has been with the chautauqua. Webster Olty has held out longer than most towns." Cathedral unparalleled In the richness of its material and decoration. Nearby is the far-famed Rialto, the palace of the Doges, and the Campanile with its bell tower and pyramid cap.

FORD MOTOR COMPANY Moulds Warns Auto Drivers. The following article was taken from the Mason City Globe-Gazette: A warning to motrlsts whose" Ifcense plates are hid behind front or rear bumpers has been issued by R. E. Moulds, state automobile inspector. Mr. Moulds said that this or any other practice of putting license plates in obscure places Is in violation of the state motor vehicle laws, and warned that inspectors in the future will be on the lookout for such infractions of the statutes. The state inspector - said the regulation requiring motorists to place their registration" cards in such a place that they can be readable from the right hand side of the car has been generally observed, only a few cases being dis- eovwwl whwe rmitortet* failed to obey. Mf, Moulds ttl«o ao»erted that the state department will henceforth campaign against chauffeur* or drivers for hire who have not yet obtained driving Jk»/is*s.

Car Goes in Ditch Near State Park, A Chevrolet car driven by Ed. Helmke of Whittemore, went off the grade south of the river at the State Park road Sunday morning. It seems that Mr. Helmke tried to avoid hitting another car on the narrow grade and in doing so lost control when his car hit some loose gravel. The car was quite badly damaged. Neither Mr. Helmke nor his companion, Don Weir, were injured. Algona Band Draws Crowd at Wealey, News: A large number of people turned out Wednesday night to listen to the first band concert given by the Algona Military Band.
