Some of the jurors held that the company was not liable for strik- ing the auto, but that the train crew were reckless in not stopping before the machine was shoved through the shed. The decision is not decisive and does not settle the suit. :is the ver- dict of the jury relieves the railroad company from paying of damages, but at the same time appears to hold them responsible for the injuries in- flicted on Mr. Austin.

Members of the Prohibition State Central Committee have launch- ed the candidacy of Malcolm Smith of Cedar Rapids. Not having tiled Mr_ Austin it will be remembered was a Butler county resident at Aus- tinville. which place bears his name. Iowa's Proof of Success. A news dispatch says that sixty- five Iowa grocers have formed a co-operative association to be known as the Grocers' Wholesale company. Members of the associa- tion say they will be able to ent the prices of groceries to consum- ers from thirteen to seventeen per cent as soon as their company la in operation. An office and warehouse are to be established In Des Moines at once and shares of stock will be sold at a share. It is claimed that the company will buy for cash and take all the discounts and will be able to eliminate the expense and his credit loss and will eell goods to members at cost pins five per cent for handling. If Iowa must bear the humiliation that goes with a state which has not added to her population within the past ten years, she can bear it with perfect grace when she considers that the population which she- has was richer last year than the year before. The taxable value of Iowa property for 1911 was for 1910. Therefore, each man. woman and child in the state is ahead, in earthly goods, by the sum of one dollar over 1910. Iowa will raise and expend for all pur- poses of government this year the sum of Coming to another a vital has paid for the maintenance of its State University, since its establishment. for its State Teachers' college at Cedar Falls. of the greatest educational institutions in the country, all working to great pur- pose and for great and good cause and conducted beyond criticism. Aye. coming to another point: Of all the states and territories of the country. Iowa leads in literacy. There is in the voter writing in his name or putting on one of the suckers, be- ing sent out by the advocates of his candidacy. The movement is a. fight on C. Durant Jones of Perry, depos- ed member of the State Central com- mittee, who is seeking that party's nomination. Another important development is in the Republican primary with re- gard to the office of Railroad Com- missioner. Clifford Thome, progres- sive, has openly announced through the press that he will not partici- pate in the campaign and will do nothing to oppose the nomination of Chairman N. S. Ketchum, though he has been frequently urged to partici- pate. To private individuals Mr. Thorne has given as his reason that he is satisfied with the present or- ganization of the Board. This stamp of approval placed npon Mr. Ketch- um by Mr. Thorne practically insures his renomination as it is notice to the progressive interests Mr. Thorne represents that the chairman of the board has been fair and is be yond criticism- Edward Chassell, progressive, ap- pears to have the republican nomi- nation for Secretary of State in his pocket. The opposition to him is divided and as he enjoys an acquain- tance and following quite regardless of factional lines he will undoubtedly be high man m the primary vote- The governorship race will be intestine acd those from the surface of the insects were investigated. The flies examined in April and early iu ne1 vt re comparatively free from dangerous bacteria. As the summer season advanced high bacterial count-, began to appear and also an abrupt changp in the character of the bacteria. The record counts came :it the e-.'.l of two weeks of exces- sive heat in July. Some idea of the number of organ- isms that a single insect may carry is indicated by the figures 570 to 400.000 for the surface contamination and 16.000 to for the in- testinal bacterial contents. Most of the bacteria found were comparative- ly harmless. This investigation, how- ever was carried on in the crowd- ed city, where sewers would natur- ally carry- off all of the most dang- erous infective matter. The Journal of the American Medical Association says that the house-fly is an ''un- desirable citizen" in any event, so that the war of extermination al- ready begun against it in many quarters deserves encouragement and support- counters, a fine basement below. The building will be one story with high ceiling and will afford the much needed room to display and handle the mammoth stock of clothing hand- led by this company, being one of the largest and most substantial firms in northern Iowa. This will give them floor space of 50x100 feet. A btating plant for both buildings is to be installed, city water, and in short everything is going to be right up to the minute- Our people will be proud of this nice addition to tne town which removes an land mark, one of the first business places built in Greene when Mr. and Mrs. Mabee were young and full of hope for f uccess and the growth of Greene which has been their home since the coming of the railroad over thirty years ago Reform is Needed at Commencement The 17 Year Locust in Iowa. Advices from leva State College of Agriculture at Ames say the 17- year locust, or ''Periodical has appeared over a large part of the state of Iowa at regular inter- Hampton Globe: With the return of the graduation season there is the usual protest against the heavy expense incurred for graduating dresses and presents, and this year it seems to be more pronounced than ever. It is a, protest that should be heed- ed. The commencement of high school and college should be one of the most pleasant events of the school year. To witness young peo- ple who have successfully completed their school life engage in the exer- cises attending their graduation is one of the prettiest sights imaginable- It is ._xme in which parents and friends, as well as the participants, take delight and pride. Yet often it is an occasion for anxiety and heart burning because of the rivalry as to dress and the heavy expense of ri- valry causes. Some graduates, or their parents, or both, think it an occasion to play the dressmaker's art- It is a vals in the past and is due to ap-1 fooiish anci expensive idea and when pear again m 1912. We have rec- j ords of its occurence in certain parts of the state in 1844. 1861, 1878 and 1895, so that its appearance again in 1912 expected. In previous years the central, south central and southeastern parts of the state were affected by this brood of the locusts. It may be ex- pected to appear in the following counties: Adair, Adams, Audobon. Boone, Cass, Dallas, Davis, Decatur.

But little rivalry is apparent in the democratic primary the leaders apparently satisfied with any of their nominees for the November battle. It is predicted here that R, G. Dunn of Mason City and John T. Hamil- ton of Cedar Rapids will run very closely together in the race for gub- ernatorial nomination. The first application of the liquor law passed by the legislature of Min- nesota at its recent session was made at the village of Wanda, in which Mrs. John Chondek has re- ceived from saloon keepers of thai place for the loss of her hus- band, who was run over and killed by an auto while intoxicated. This law not only holds the saloon keeper responsible for any accident which may befall an intoxicated man. who drank at his place, but holds also the bonding company who is his surety. In this case it was the American Bonding company. Rather than stand trial in a suit brought by Mrs. Choudek, who brought suit for a cash settlement was ef- fected. The editor of an eastern paper re- cently began worrying how he would get his shirt on over his wings after reaching Paradise. An envious print- er sarcastically observed that his dif- ficulty would likely be in finding how he could get his hat on over his horns. In 1895. when the locusts last appeared in this area, they were less abundant, and covered a less extensive territory than they did in 1878. The counties- named include the area affected in 1S78. H is pos sible that the area this year will be still less in extent, on account] of the small amount of timber. The should appear about the last week in May. and remain for about a month, disappearing the first of July. After having been in the soil ever since 1S95. the young locusts, or nymphs as they are cal- led, will come up near the surface this spring and emerge from their long stay underground. Some of the nymphs make small earthen cham- bers or cones, which re-ach two or three inches above the ground, but not all of them do this. While the 17 year locusts may cause considerable injury, this is seldom as serious as one might ex pect from their numbers. The fe- male cicadas cause injury to the young trees by depositing their eggs on twigs and small branches. This stunts the growth of the affected branches. Fanners, fruit-growers and nursery men who expect to plant trees this spring are wamecf of the danger which may be caused by the cicada. Trees are especially liable to injury when set near timber, or on recent- ly cleared ground. Trees set in such places should either be cut severely back at the start, so as to leave no tempting for the cicadas to oviposit in. or cut back little or not at all until after the first of July, when the locusts will have disap- peared. With the latter treatment the cicadas may deposit their eggs in the twigs which can, be cut off and burned. The eggs in the twigs and branches hatch, and the young nymphs drop to the ground and enter it for a long stay of another period of 17 years. carried out, detracts from the dignity of the event. Simplicity in dress is far more becoming, for a lavish out- lay is out of keeping with the spirit of the occasion. Again audiences do not gather to gaze bewilderment upon a variety of expensive costumes, but to hear and see the graduates and the attendant exercises- School boards and faculties ought to put their veto upon any attempt to incur expense in graduation dress that cannot be easily met by the poorest parents of any graduate. And well to do parents ought to set a good example by having their child- ren dressed in simple and inexpen- sive attire. Simplicity in attire under such circumstances is more fitting and more pleasing to the spectators than silks and satins, ringed fingers and bracleted arms. in city elections all have con- tended, in Wisconsin as elsewhere, that it is impossible to establish any connection between the tariff ques- tion and the matter of clean streets. To make the test of a man's ability to be mayor or alderman of a city the views he holds regarding the Panama Canal, asset currency, Philip- pine independence or arbitration with Great Britian is absurd, they say. arguing that one who thinks one way regarding matters is no more likely to a good municipal ser- vant than one who holds conclusions opposed. It is further contended that in cities having elections and where one party is overwhel- munity is denied the benefit of the mingly in the majority, the com- munity is denied the beneGt of the service of good and able men in the other party or parites, merely be- cause of their views on national poli- tics. Opponents of non-partisanship in municipal elections assert, on the other hand, that this being a gov- ernment of parties, the party div- isions should be carried down into the smallest political units, through the states and cities and even into the school districts. This, they say, effects to strengthen parties and thus party government, and to sharp- ly define all issues. They contend nioreover, that with non-partisanship the official is responsible only to himself, whereas if he were a par- tisan official he would be responsible to his party and subect to its influ- ence, which would operate as a de- terrent upon any meditated act of his which would, hurt the party. Advocates of non-partisanship say in rebuttal that party government means machine government and ma- chine government means corrupt gov- ernment and opponents of non-par- tisanship retort that this is true only as to the large cities and that with- out ;the support and aid of party or- ganization it is impossible to secure government as good as to be obtain- ed with it- Decision of this question runs par- allel with decision of the larger ques- tion of party government in the na- tion. That more and more are com- ing to the view that partisanship presents evils which must be check- ed is evident in the increasing num- ber of independent voters in nation- al and city elections.

A Kansas City special says that plans for securing the importation of wheat from "Canada without paying duty will be considered at a confer- ence of nearly a thousand millers, uader the auspices of the Millers' National Federation, which was com- Although parcels post "has not been voted on in the Senate, the House voted favorably for a trial of it on the rural routes and defeated an attempt to institute a general plan under the zone system. It is anticipated, that the Senate will concur in the rural experiment- Strong, consistent support has been given the Postal Progress League and the farm journals in their effort to get parcels post legislation. On the other hand, determined, desperate protest has been put forward by manufacturers, jobbers, retailers and civic organizations For months con- gress has been besieged, with letters of remonstrance and demand until in many instances, congressmen were j obliged to empty extra harxis to give attention to the heavy correspon- dence. Both sides assert that they are in the right. They cannot both be correct and. hence, it is apparent that this division on a matter of such imponarce meets with but one solution insofar as conresgs- is con- cerned, and that is the appointment of a fair and impartial commission; to fully investigate the question and re- menced in Kansas City today and j its findings. will continue for three days.

New York, May highest price since 1S82 was reached by beef in the wholesale market here today when it sold at 13 1-2 cents a pound. It is said to mean from 1 1-2 to 2c a pound increase for prime meats at retail. The primary cause of the high prices, the wholesale men say, is the continued scarcity of cattle. Senator Kenyon and Col. Lafe Young can both qualify when it comes to being friends of the old soldiers. It looks like a boy's play for either man to say that he is a better friend or that the other man is less a friend. What object could any sane man nowadays have in being any- thing except a friend of the old sold- iers? cheapest rate under parcels post, leaving out of consideration its cost- It is a deep question involved and because of the disastrous results predicted as certain foliow par- cels legislation, it is one deserving of study and investigation. Parcels post a good thing for the United States, there is no reason why we should not have it, and vice versa, if it would be a bad thing, every rea- son why we should not have it- It is indicated in Washington re- ports that the matter be thor- oughly investigated by a competent commission. This would satisfy the opposition and surely should satisfy. Telegraph-Herald.
