Quite a number of persons about town heard this celebrated orchestra which will soon be presented All Over the country in a forthcoming Warner Bros picture. In announcing this number the master of ceremonies stated this orchestra was the finest evidence that could be presented that the big Talent of the counts did not All come from the big towns a7the members of this orchestra were All from towns so Small it was hard to locate them on the maps remember next monday is St. Valentine s Day. The trophies won by the Postville High school basketball teams at the county tournament held in Lansing the past week Are on display in the Blue Arrow front windows this week and have attracted considerable interest and admiration. The boys championship trophy is a Gold figure holding a basketball with a Shell shaped Silver background while the girls sportsmanship trophy is a Silver figure of a girl with a basketball. Both trophies Are mounted on a substantial base and will add to the attractiveness of the Case at the school building where the numerous trophies won by our school groups Are permanently on display. The family that is not consuming plenty of eggs of late has been passing up one of the finest and cheapest foods on the Market. The Price of eggs took another two cent Tumble the latter part of last week when local produce houses were paying but twelve cents per dozen which is said to be the lowest Price for Hen fruit in a number of years. And from this we should judge that the commission houses with Many thousands of cases of eggs in cold storage Pought at much higher prices must be taking some heavy losses. But then gamblers in commodities must take their chances just like any other gamblers sometimes they will win and at other times they must lose. The question has Arisen in Postville just recently As to whether a state Highway patrolman has the right to pick up a Motorist inside the incorporate limits of the town for exceeding Speed limits or other infractions of the Highway Law. Well the matter has been looked up and the conclusion arrived at by local officials is that the patrolman has just the same right to see that traffic Laws within a town or City Are observed As he does out on the open Highway. And we Are also requested to inform the Public that parties picked up by any state patrolman within the corporate limits of Postville will be dealt with according to Law and also that said party will  also have to pay a Fine for his Misdemeanour. A rough shelter House has been erected hard by Postville s municipal ice skating rink where tired and weary skaters can drop in to rest up a bit or one May drop in to put his skates on. It s a Fine convenience and the Only complaint we have heard of it so far is the fact that it is erected atop the Bank at the rink and skaters have a Clumsy Jaunt of it in getting inside and it is also suggested that an old stove of some kind to provide a bit of heat would be quite acceptable. Doubtless there s More truth than poetry about these complaints but this is the first Winter there has been any sort of shelter and it has also been a very mild Winter so far As temperatures Are concerned and it is More than Likely the defects complained of this season will be remedied before another season Rolls around.

Just Wear and tear. Someone asks what becomes of All the Money collected from the Public. We Are reminded by this inquiry of a banquet Given by Frederick the great his courtiers and noblemen. At its conclusion he called on anyone present to speak who could Tell him what became of All the Revenue collected in his realm. No one answered until the silence became painful. Finally an old general of the Huzzard arose and said he could throw Light on the matter. Taking a piece of ice he lifted it High for inspection. He then handed it to the one next him for inspection instructing him to pass it on to the next in turn until it reached the King. When Frederick finally received the ice it was so Small it was hardly discernible. Then Frederick understood what became of the Revenue. And the same thing holds Good today there Are too Many hands holding the ice the Oelwein Register. Luhman & Sanders grocery specials feb. 10, 11, 12 and 13 grape fruit med.
