The Warsaw Gate City
In spite of the threatened rain,
seven autos, most of them loaned for
the occasion, started out at 8:30 a.
m. Monday, on the booster trip In the
interest of the centennial celebration,
September 29 and 30 and Oct. 1. thjy
returned Just before 6 p. nt„ having
traveled over seventy miles in the
mud and rain, and visited five cities:
Hamilton,* Nauvoo, Carthage, EJlvas
ton and Colusa. The delegation had
planned to surprise Nauvoo and se
cure a place in the'l^abor day parade,
but there was no parade. It was hard
at times to keep the road because the
autos slid so In spite of the chains on
the tires. However, there were no
punctures or accidents of any kind.
The trip would not have been 'made
on so unpromising a day, but all ot
the members of the band could not
get off any other day. The band
made a great hit and Warsaw round
ed up a good section of the crowd
that will -be here at our celebration.
The autos were decorated with white
oilcloth banners announcing the
dates. The autos loaned were one
from John Giller, one from Fred
Sheltman, one from Dr. S. E- Matzke,
two from M. C. Eckbohm, two from
Walter Dross. Considering the mud
and rain, the autos looked quite
fresh on their return.

The following item is from th'a

Nellie Walker has left her Paris btu

she felt it was wise to do so. Being
anxious to carry out her original plan

safeguard, in case things become too
strenuous, she has booked passage
for a winter sailing.

—The Iowa weather crop bulletin
for the week ending September 6, has
just been Issued as follows: More
rain fell In the state during the last
seven days than in any other week of
the Beason. The rainfall was heavy
except over the northwestern quarter
of the state the amounts. In many
localities, in the eastern and southern
districts exceeded three inches, and a
few stations report more than five
Inches. In many localities the rains
were accompanied by destructive
wind squalls and hailstorms, which
did much damage to corn. The aver
age temperature was nearly normal,
although seveiial nights were quite
cool. Light frost occurred in ex
posed places over the northwestern
counties, but no damage was done.
The rains were of great benefit to
pastures, aftermath, late potatoes,
plowing and to some of the late corn.
Plowing is now progressing rapidly,
and a large area is being prepared In
the southern districts for fall wheat
and rye. Corn is maturing rapidly
and fully three-fourths of it will be
beyond danger of frost by the end of'
the coming week. More than 90 per
cent of it will be safe by the 20th and
practically all of It by the end of
the month. The average condition of
corn on September 1st was placed at
87 per cent, or a loss of 10 percent
during August. The condition of late
potatoes was 68 percent and pastures
70 percent. With favorable weather
in the future, corn husking will begin
earlier than usual.
