with branch banking and possibly chain banking will find 113 way from committeeto tho senate floor soon after the regular session convenes in December In expressing his views on chain banking the chairman of the bank ing committee said I have always believed that the banking business should be left open to the people of different sections to engage In When It is strongly centralized ani controled in the large clttesf we will have addition al problems to face It is argued that it is a matter of to have a business large but eiperi ence has shown that can be large enough to be topheavy The greatest efficiency is not ob tained in the larger units Henry Ford hasbeen decentralizing for years The packing houses have not only beenable to compete with the larger onesl but there has been a of these independent establishments of recent years Could Become Too There is such a tiling as a prop er size unit In any undertaking A goodfarmercan handle one farm better than he can handle several farms He may handle a as well as a small one but it can easily become too large T have in mind especially the Balrymple wheat farm In North Dakota thatwasIa mous 40 years ago for its size That was in the period when wheat farming was profitable Ten of thousands of farmers made money raisingwheat In North Dakota but the Dalrymple farm went on the rocks I do not believe that a central management in Chicago or New York can handle banking details better thai the local banker can It is true that the newly devised scheme of holding companies vir tually provides a form of branch banking and hot the best form The question lawhat to do about it This matter with many others will come before the committee of bank ing and currency as soon as the tar iff bill is disposed of Society Put Stamp of

chief joys of Octo ber Rarely indeed does one find the fringed gentian A small bed has been reported near Clear Lake and some have been found in previous places at Pilot Knob Once common on the prairies of Jowa in moist places this lovely flower colored with heavens own blue and look ing thru its quiet fringes to the sky has met the same fate as the pasque the shooting star orchid and Bothers of Iowas rare flowers On a virgin piece of soil southwest of Mason City explorers from the Outdoor Life department of the Wo mans club found three kinds of gen tians a few days ago the bottle or closed the downy and the quinque folia Everyone is more or less fa miliar with the legend surroundlrig the closed gentian of how a fairy queen took refuge in a fringed gen tian in order that she might be more effectually shielded the flower clos ed its lobes which have remained closed ever since To repay the gen tians kindness the fairy painted the stripes on the interior as we find them today Another interesting plant not found in abundance except on virgin soil or the right of ways and which has the background of legend and romance is the compass plant the leaves of which some like to use in their winter bouquets This plant in former days marked the meridian of the prairie and doubtless reas sured many a weary anxious pion eer Longfellow immortalized this compass plant in his classic Evan geline describing it exquisitely Look at this vigorous plant that lifts its head fromthe meadow See how its leaves are turned to the north as true as a magnet This is the compassflower that the finger of God has planted Here in Jhe houseless wild to direct the travelers journey Over the sealike pathless limitless waste of the desert Flower in Fall Many people think of the crocus as a distinctly spring flower whose sole mission is to proclaim the first exhilirating promises of spring But there is a lovely autumnflowering crocus Zonatus which blooms at this time of year and which is de cidedly worth getting acquainted with Mrs W C Odell of South Kentucky avenue experimented witha few of these bulbs and now has a few choice blooma as thrilling to the beholder as the first pasque flower which peeps out from Its eiderdown to greet us alniostbeterp the snows have disappeared atua bulbs planted early in August will thrust forth blooms in October Like Halls amaryllis the flowers are devoid of foliage which willbe produced next spring In color thu zonatus is a soft orchid The buds closely furled are a joy to behold They resemble a tulipbud in minia ture but the open flower is more like the pasque with delicate pen cillngs of purple on the inside of the golden anthers con trasting beautifully with the orchid and purple Listed as a superb cro cus to glorify rock gardens it is perfectly hardy and will add charm to any chosen spot In the garden Dry freezing of evergreens Is very disastrous ami therefore it behooves everyone who has evergreens to keep them well watered at this time of year A shallow trench should be dug around the tree not deep enough to injure the roots and at least 12 gallons should be fed to a small tree before a stiff freeze comes Everyone who covets a fine evergreen tree will be glad to thus fortify the tree for winter Savo Your Leaves Here and tliere thruout the city one spies mysterious piles of some thing covered with canvas or boards These are leaves and be speak the wise and thrifty garden er whose vision takes him ahead a month or two to the days when he must tuck around and over his flower and bulb children a warm blanket Some prefer to sack the leaves but at any rate no leaves should be burned until one has an adequate supply for the garden Be sides serving the purpose of a pro tecting blanket they are a valuable asset to the soil Then there is also the compost heap to think about when space permifs A shrub somewhat new to Iowa gardeners but coming to be more and more recommended as appropri ate for shade planting is the wltcii bazelThe plant is unique in that the yellow flowers appear upon the branches in late fallafter the color ful foliage has dropped a direct an tithesis to the Forsythia whose gold en bells peal forth the tiding of spring before the leaves appear The blossoms of the witch hazel seem immune to our heavy frosts and arc followed by peculiar interesting brown seed pods One gardener rec ommends it as a background for the hardy yellow chrysanthemum Burroughs says that with the blooming of this bush Mother Na ture says the last It is a kind of birth in death of spring in fall that impresses one as a little uncanny All trees and shrubs form their flowerbuds in the fall and keep the secret until spring How comes the witch hazel to be the one exception and to celebrate its flor al nuptials on the funeral day of its foliage No doubt it will befound that the spirit of some lovelorn squaw has passed into this bush and that this is why it bloomsin the fiidian summer than in the white mans spring But it makes the floral series of fall complete To Elect Officers WELLS Minn Oct 14 meeting of cream and produce buy ers to elect officials of the Minne sota Cream
