On this new Weaver Automatic Brake Tester Properly equalized brakes— particularly if they are of the four wheel type—are essential for safe emergency stops. Un- equalized braking pressure will cause your car to swerve and possibly get out of control- easily resulting in a serious accident. Weaver Tester Immediately Shows Relative Braking Power Make this test yourself. Drive on the Tester—it lies flat on the floor — and apply your foot brakes. The relative braking power on each of the four wheels is immediately shown by the rise of colored liquid in the four gauges in the pedestal head, positioned to correspond to the - wheels. At once you see whether your brakes need adjustment. This test is scientifically ac- curate—ic takes only a moment —and it is FREE. Can you afford not to take it—today?

Good Hope Farmers After Bot Fly. Good Hope,, January 27. Special: Farmers in this locality are having their horses treated for the eradication of the bot fly larva. This is the larva which develops into the so-called nose fly and which so pestered the horses In summer that they are driven frantically, racing across their pastures Instead of being able to graze comfortably as they should. The presence of the fly also makes necessary the wearing of the nose protectors in order that the horses may be worked safely an'l successfully. It Is only of recent years that this pest has gained a foothold In the middle west. It has been found that it is possible to get rid of this insect if the farmers will cooperate in the administration of the treatment now practiced in veterinary medicine. Where this is done the fly is being eradicated from whole neighborhoods in a few seasons. Dr. Fox of Algona is administering the treatment in the Good Hope community. High Temperature for Week is 48 Above. The spring weather in Iowa continues and overcoats are getting a rest, The high mark was reached on Saturday when the mercury reached forty-eight degrees above zero. Baptist Church.

We bid you a cordial welcome to these services.—Prank H. Webster, minister. Good Hope Men's Dinner Postponed. Good Hope, January 27.
