That this is a news item instead of an obituary is due solely to the fact that pro Vivenee was with Albert nes Etty with both feet last sunday morning when a Milwaukee fast freight struck his car at the Campbell Crossin Between Here and Cas Tania wrecking his car completely while he escaped with his life and Only suffered minor bruises. Albert Nesteby is a Cream Hauler for Tho Postville Farmers and resides in Casta a. Last Satur any evening to and his wife drove to Postville to do their week end shopping coming Down in a Chevrolet coach they have owned but about a month. While Here mrs. Nesteby decided to spend the night in Postville at the Home of his sister mrs. Harvey Jones and Albert was to come after her the next morning and she by so doing doubtless saved her life. Some time after Midnight Albert started for Home in Castalia and As he approached the Campbell crossing saw a Light coming his Way which he claims to have mistaken for an approaching Auto. As he rolled up onto the crossing however he found a Milwaukee freight about upon him. Stepping on the Gas to get As far across As possible before the inevitable happened he just managed to get the front seat of the car Over when the Austin Marquette fast freight eastbound and under full steam crashed into the rear half of his car hurled it into the ditch and left it practically a Complete wreck. The train was stopped As soon As possible and the trainmen hurried Back to the scene to Render any Ai Din their Power. Among the wreckage of the car they found Albert in a dazed condition and after some shaking roused him up. They offered to bring him to a Postville Hospital but he refused and finding him not seriously injured went on and left him. Albert returned to i stome in Castalia and found that several Bruise about the head and on different portions of his body All of a minor Nar Ture constituted his injuries. He was in Postville monday but a3ide from Lorenec and bit. Of stiffness in the Muscles was Able to get about in pretty Good form. How a Man could escape from such i wreck without losing his life is Little less than a Miracle. For the most of us.

The vigilantes in this county have been on the Job for some time and Are already equipped with arms and ammunition. The arms consist of shot guns rifles and pistols and before Long chief Cota will have the boys assemble for target practice and will round them into shape so they can hit the bulls Eye every shot. The vigilant system is considered the most effective Means of warding off Bank robberies and the fact that no at tempts have been made to Rob the Banks of this county is doubtless due to the fact that the vigilantes have been on the Job in Alla Makee for the past several years.

But it shall not be so among you but whosoever will be great among you let him be your today the world demands service from humanity and rewards Are commensurate to the service Given. This was the thought the speaker tried to impress most firmly in the minds of his hearers and he exhorted them Paul the ephesians to stir up the gifts that Are within you and find new paths to new Fields of service. Our wild for the monday club and published by request As springtime approaches each year to eagerly we tear off the leaves of the Calendar when we come to March we feel that Spring is but a few jumps behind and somewhere not very far to the South the Blue Bird and Robins Are singing. As the Days go by our feathered friends begin to arrive and we Hail each new arrival with Delight but we like to hurry March Days along by keeping Busy and a Lookout for All the Little suggestions of springtime and before we know it april is Here and with april conies our first Spring Flowers. It is now we feel the Call of outdoor things the Birds the Fields and the Woods with inviting gestures fihe Forest crooked an Arm at me and murmured with its leaves come see the wonder and the mystery that haunt the heart of Spring is a Busy time of the year cleaning up As it were the Winter s debris and yet it were better for our souls to respond to the voice of nature we should say with Richard Legallienne "i1 want to do my work today but a Brown Bird Sang in the Apple tree and a Butterfly flitted across the Field and All the leaves were calling me. And the wind went sighing Over the land tossing the grasses to and fro and a Rainbow held out its shining hand so what could i do but laugh and go and so april passes and May comes tripping in with her flowery world. M a not Only brings More Birds than other months of the year but the dainties and most Beautiful Flowers.

In our walks we Are Apt to notice the most showy and Beautiful Flowers but not always the most interesting. Many a Flower by the Road Side is passed by which on closer acquaintance would be found most interesting. All our Trees and plants Bloom in the Spring with one exception the Witch Hazel this blooms in the fall just As its leaves Are fading and falling its Flowers and it is probably because of this curious trait that its branches Are used As diving rods by certain credulous persons to Point out where Springs of water or precious metals Are found.

John Burroughs said it is very difficult for persons who have had no special training to learn the names of the Flowers some of these Days someone will give us a handbook of wild Flowers in which they shall be arranged according to color White red Blue Pink Etc. This prediction came True when mrs. Dana published her Book How to know the wild you will love the Flowers because you will associate them with pleasant occasions. You meet in a walk touch elbows on a picnic or under a tree. Rou will like your Floral acquaintances to come to you easily and naturally like friends Tho unless you know their names they still Are More or less strangers to you. We Are so. Apt to think that the greatest Beauty of the Plant world Lias been lavished upon the tropics. It True that Many of the gorgeous Green House plants Are of tropical origin cannas geraniums and orchids. But when travellers go into raptures Over tropical vegetation notice it is the vegetation not the Flowers the Luxuriance the huge leaves masses of foliage Jungles of Trees and vines. Think of it no grass South of Virginia and on the California Hills nothing but Bayonet Yucca and cacti. The glory of an Earth covered with an unbroken verdure and adorned with Miles of Brilliant Flowers is Only for the temperate zones and nowhere is greater Floral Beauty displayed than on the Hills and Prairies of Iowa unless it might be in the Short growing season of an Alpine Meadow where Spring summer and autumn Are crowded into a period of six or eight weeks. It has been said by one of our noted botanists that northeastern Iowa is one of the most Fertile regions for Plant growth in the West. So we who live Here have a heritage we would do Well to appreciate and that is the world of wild Flowers that brightens our Woods thickets and Fields everywhere. Iowa has Laws for the Protection of Birds but none for the Protection of her wild Flowers. Now that people have the automobile to carry them All Over the country not one of nature s Beauty spots escapes them. Vandalism is carried to such an extent by tourists and picnickers that Many of our states have already passed Laws protecting their wild Flowers. There s a class of people who seem to think that everything that grows wild whether it is on some one else s land or not belongs to the Public. Massachusetts recently passed Protection Flower Laws new York the same in order to save the trailing Arbutus which is fast disappearing. Illinois has passed Laws forbidding the killing or buying of trillium Gentian lady slippers Columbine bloodroot and Lotus and Florence Everman Alice Cole Ruth Meyer Leona Mohs Janet service Gretchen Gordon Romilda Gass Gertrud Schult.

Vation association is trying to create a sentiment toward preserving our wild life and has done much in getting Bird Laws. Until there is some legislation it is up to us individually to do what we can to preserve our local wild Flowers. What pleasure is there m going to the Woods and digging up All the Dainty things that grow there and placing them in an altogether foreign setting for their Beauty. Go and see Thorn where the creator meant them to be. Learn to love the Flower and leave it on its however in a trip to the Woods or across the Fields there is Milch that you can take Home with you without picking a single Flower or breaking a single blossoming Shrub.
