Will I'Ihv Will. .ii.
Manager Charles Lienhard of the
Maroons has arranged for a game with
the crack team" from Wilton high
school to be played at the Y. M. C. A.
here next Saturday evening. Wilton
high school has one of the strongest
high school teams in Iowa, as was
shown in their defeat of the Company
C team of Muscatine at Wilton last
Friday evening. - Tire Maroons were
defeated by Wilton high school in the
Thanksgiving game by but three
points, and the" local boys feel confi
dent of defeating the Wilton five on
the Y. M. C. A. floor, which is unpol
ished and unlike the one at Wilton.
The game will no doubt, prove fast and
interesting, the. teams being so even
ly matched. Manager Lienhard has
also arranged for several more fast
games during the month, including
contests with Clinton. Kewanee and
faimt-K at Armory.
There will be a double header basket
ball game this evening at the armory,
between the Company A team and the
Methodist church team of Davenport,
and the second team of Company A
and the Y. M. C. A. Tigers. The first
game will be between the company
second team and the Tigers.

IVculiiir 1'ilin'Ollvr Ynlne.
The peculiar value in these contests
is that the young man, the person of
all others most necessary and most
valuable to reach, gets a high grade
of agricultural education at every step.
He is brought actively into the county
institute this one who must make the
nstituie a few years hence. He gets
instruction from an expert judge, dis
cussing with him the practical points
of the ear and the yield of corn. This
boy handles and judges corn himself
for two or three days and passes an
examination in corn judging. He "is
also required to attend the day ses
sions of the institute when not in the
corn class. At the Scott county insti
tute, a soil circular was studied and
examined upon instead of coin. Some
of the largest classes have numbered
15 to 24. Those who do not win pre
mimums have had valuable instruction
there are no losers among the con
testants; every step in the work is a
step in an agricultural education.
IIoIiik Fine Work lit t lie Colleice.
Those who go from these contests
to the two weeks' corn convention at
the college of agriculture, have this
part of education extended and inten
sified. They get the peculiar mental
awakening and ambition to learn that
comes from association with so many
of their fellows who are studying the
same things, and especially from the
talks of the skillful specialists who de
vote a lifetime to one line of study and
from the discussions of the practical
men who have won large success on
the farm and in school work.

It is not so much the facts gained
n the two weeks as the opening door
that gives the young man a glimpse of
the great body of knowledge to ue
learned in the mastery of his business.
It is the new connection with the
sources of information, the college.

Emil Carlson, a farmer living a mile

Mercer county, was found dead in his

with the horse about S o'clock Friday
night to bring in from his cornfield i

the stalks. Xot, returning, friends were
sent, out in search of him, who found

underneath. The horse was inclined to

that it kicked him in such a way as
to cause death.

In the final articles of a series upon
conditions in the Congo region of Afri

has been so roundly censured of late.
Professor Frederick Starr, of the Uni

up in the Chicago Tribune his reasons
why the United States should not in
terfere in African affairs. The obser
vations of Professor Starr are of par
ticular interest in Rock Island and
Davenport, because he is well known
here through frequent visits. Two of
the writer's reasons relate to the ne

the system of governing the Philip

Benevolent Hssimmilation is the most
