Former Resident Insane. County
Auditor Ed Collins is in receipt of a
letter from the authorities at Oska
loosa, notifying him that Roland E.
Edwards, a legal resident of Scott
county, Is In a bad mental condition In
that city and asking advice as to what
Bhall be done with his case. The wife
appeared before, the insanity commis
sion In that city and asked to have her
husband sent, to Mt. Pleasant. Inas
much as the man was a legal resident
of this "county, the commission declined
to have the Information filed at pres
ent. They are willing to do this and
commit the man to the asylum if Scott
county will be responsible for the ex
pense occasioned thereby. The letter
states Edwards is getting into a condi
tion where it will be necessary to re
strain him before long. It is further
stated that prior to Sept. 15 last, hrs

city, and later moved to Watkin's

Walter II. Petersen, plead guilty be

contempt of court and was assessed a
fine of $300. together with $50 as plain

Flynn was charged with contempt of
court in violating provisions of the

Canned Goods Seized. For violation
of the national pure food and drug law
in the interstate shipment of mislabel
ed goods, 9C0 cases of canned peas,
valued at $1,500, were Ized yesterday
by Dr. A. Brown of Des Moines, repre
senting the department of agriculture.
The peas were in possession of Smith
Bros. & Burdick company, local job
bers, and are the output of the Wis
consin Canneries company of Manito
woc, Wis. It is said to be the largest
seizure of canned goods that has been
made under the new law. The action
is based on the fact that the, cases are
labeled "24 cans, 2 pounds each," and
weigh but 24 ounces each, or 8 ounces
short on each can.
Informer Confesses Guilt. Walter

PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT IN MESSAGE PRESENTS
REPORT OF COUNTRY LIFE COMMISSION TO CONGRESS
Washington. Feb. 9. President
Roosevelt sent to congress today a
special message transmitting the re
port of the . country life commission,
appointed by him to investigate the
conditions of life on the farms of the
country and to make recommendations
of ways and means whereby farm life
may be made more remunerative and
In the message the president lays
stress upon the fact that the farmers
and their families are the stay and

He praises the work of the members
of the commission, who, as he says,
have labored without pay and do not
now ask compensation for their work.

ion, the grange, the agricultural press
and other similar agencies have all
combined to place within the reach
cf the American farmer an amount
and quality of agricultural informa
tion which If applied would enable
him over large areas to double the
production of the farm.
The object of the commission on
country life, therefore, is not to help
the farmer raise better crops, but to
call his attention to the opportunities
for better business and better living
on the farm. If country life is to be
come what it should be and what I
believe It ultimately will be one of
the most dignified, desirable and sought
after ways of earning a living the
farmer must take advantage not only
of the agricultural knowledge which
Is at his disposal, but of the methods
which have raised and continue to
raise the standards of living and of
intelligence in other callings.
Those engaged in all other industrial
and commercial callings have found
It necessary under modern economic
conditions to organize themselves for
mutual advantage and for the protec
tion Of their own particular Interests
in relation to other interests. The
farmers of every progressive Euro
pean country have realised this essen
tial fact and have found in the eo
operative system exactly the form of
business combination they need.
Now, whatever the state may do to
ward Improving the practice of ngrl
culture, it Is not within the sphere of
any government . to reorganize tlje
farmers business or reconstruct the
social life of farming communities.
It is, however, quite within Its power
to use its influence and the machinery
of publicity which it can control for
calling public attention to the needs
and the facts. For example, it Is the
obvious duty of the government to call
the attention of farmers to the grow
ing monopolization of water power,
The farmers, above all, should have
that power, on reasonable terms,, for
cheap transportation, for lighting their
homes and for innumerable uses in
the daily tasks on the farm.
Farmers' Own Work Needed.
; It would be idle to assert that life
on the farm occupies as good a post

be open to question. Hut no one at

the United States can fail to recognize
the necessity for building up the life
of the farm upon its social as well as
upon Its productive side.
It I; true that country life h-is Im
proved greatly In attractiveness, heaitb
and comfort and that the farmer's
earnings are higher than they were.
But city life is advancing even more
rapidly because of the greater atten
tion which is being given by the citi
zens of tho towns to their own better
ment. For just this reason the intro
duction of effo.-tive agricultural co
operation throughout the United States
is of the first Importance. Where
farmers are organized co-operatively
they not only avail themselves much
more readily of business opportunities
and improved methods, but it is found
that the organizations which bring
them together In the work of their
lives are used also for social and in

The commission points out and I
concur in the conclusion that : the
most important help that the gov'ern

give is to show the people how to go
about these tasks of organization, ed
tication and communication with the
I best and quickest results. This can
i be done by the collection and spread
of information. One community can
thus be Informed of what other com
' munities have done and one country
of what other countries have done,

Thursday afternoon Mrs. Harrii
called at the store- where Cooper is
meeting the public, and when inter
viewed said: "I am only too willing
to tell what a remarkable experienca
I have had with Cooper's New Discov
ery, and what a wonderful medicine l
know it to be.
"1 have had rheumatism for lfi
years and took so much medicine in
trying to get rid of it, that for the past
eight years my stomach has been in a
(earful condition, as my digestion was
almost ruined. For 10 years I con
sulted one physician after another, but
my rheumatism got steadny worse.
Finally my stomach got in such a state
that I had to stop taking medicine al
"When I first heard of Mr. Cooper's
medicine and what it was doing in
New York I was afraid to try it; but I
finally decided to take it, and if it did
me no good I would never take any
medicine again. I started the treat
ment six weeks ago. The first effect
it had was to give me a better appetite
than I have had for 10 years. Then
ray food began to digest and no longer .
distressed me for hours after eating.
At the end of the. third week I noticed
that I was not suffering as much from
rheumatism, "and each day the pain
and stiffness grew less until I no ion-.
ger had any rheumatism. For the past
week I fell as though I had been niacin
over entirely, as I have-no pains nor
aches and eat three hearty meals a
day, with no indigestion whatever.
"My two nieces and my sister hav-?
had stomach trouble. When they saw
what the medicine was doing for' me
they all tried it. It has helped them
just as it did me, and they are de
lighted with their improvement. On 3
of them told me that it was worth
more than its weight in gold to her.
This sounds almost Impossible, but
every word of it is true."
Cooper's New Discovery has made a
wonderful record in New York and
other cities. It is now on sale at lead
ing druggists everywhere. A treat is-

The commissioners have served with

To improve our system of agricul

the tasks which lie before us. But it
cannot, in my judgment, be effected
by measures which touch only the ma
terial and technical side of the sub
ject. The whole business and life of
the farmer must also be taken into
account. Such considerations led mo
to appoint the commission on country
life. Our object should be to help de
velop In the country community the
great ideals of community life as well
as of personal character. One of the
most important adjuncts to this end
must be the country church, and I in
vite your attention to what the com
mission says of the country church
and of the need of an extension of
such work as that of the Young Men's
Christian association in country com
munities. Let me lay special emphasis
upon what the commission says at the
very end of Its report on personal
Ideals and local leadership. Every
thing resolves itself in the end, Into
the question of personality. Neither
society nor government can do much
for country life unless there is volun
tary response in the personal Ideals of

income to provide adequate founda

is impossible to develop a high aver

our record. Most people think ( blood poison
cannot be cured; still in our 15 years here we
have not failed in a "single case. We not only ,
cured the n, but we gave them a pleasant cure.
We did no; let them become disfigured, with
sores or with hair falling out in patches. .One of
us has speit nine seasons in Hot Springs, and
while the treatment there Is very heroic, 6till they
have never equalled our record. Although, we
have trea'ed thousands of nervous sufferers,
some both mentally and physically weak, brought :
on by dissipation and habits that were hard to break, still we did not
have to send one in a thousand to a sanitarium or asylum. Our suc
cess in treating Catarrh, Skin Diseases, Stomach, Liver, Kidney and "
Bladder Diseases, has been of the same high order.' In our surgical
work we have never lost a case. Our special home treatment for wo
men has been praised by all who have tried it.
