i Davenport Has Finest Building in
State. According to the quarterly bul
letin just issued by the state executive j
committee of the Y. M. C. A. the Dav
enport building, valued at $105,000, Is
the most rnqdernly equipped and most
attractive building in the state, and
in valuation is only $5,000 below the
association building at Des Moinea,
considered the most valuable in the
state. The figures also relate a period
in which the Institution has been
swathed in prosperity. The valuation
of the buildings of the state of Iowa
have increased from $415,000 in 1900
to $1,006,700 in 1310. In 1900 there
were 10 association buildings in the
state and in 1910 the number of build
ings reached a total of 23, with the
prospects of two or three more within
the immediate future. Sioux City, the
only larger city cf the state which has
not the- advantage of an association
building, is preparing to have one. In
speaking of-the money raising cam
paign of the Davenport workers, the
bulletin ' acknowledges the receipt of
$50,000, or half the original subscrip
tion, of E. S. Crossett. With this to
work on as a base ihe Davenport work
ers soon realized the estimated cost
of construction and equipment and
made a time record for the collection
of building funds.

UNIVERSITY CHIEF IN LIVESTOCK
Is Coming to the Krhvardsville State Farm Meeting Feb. 24 to Tell
Facts from His Ilvperience With Beef Cattle.
Professor Herbert W. Mum ford,
chief in animal husbandry at the un
iversity of Illinois, is going to ad
dress the Illinois Farmers' institute
at Edwardsvllle, Feb. 24, and his
. years of investigation of beef cattle
and practical experience in handling
cattle on his farm have given him a
clear insight of fundamental princi
ples. 'He says that animal husbandry
necessitates rotation of crops and fre
quent seeding down, requires activ
ity and skillful management the year
around, compels the farmer to ob-
- serve market conditions and brings
him in contact with. men both as a
buyer and a seller. It enlarges his
heart and broadens his sympathies
beyond the routine of sowing, culti
vating and reaping.
Professor Mumford also holds that
while permanent maintenance of soil
fertility without live stock is possi
ble, It is not practicable as a state
wide policy; and that pure grain
farming should be resorted to only
when and where live stock proves
Jess prontaDie. xo otner ractor ex
erts such a profound influence upon
i the development of the farmer as the
ownership of live stock."
Professor Mumford in his talks at
Edwardsville will explain in detail
what he means by these views and
substantiate It with reliable facts,
and he is very competent to do so.
There are many things about beef
cattle that nobody knows as yet for
sure, but when he speaks positively
upon a point it is from the facts of
actual experience as clearly shown
in many careful tests and when he
passes this point-of reliable facts he
is very ready to note that the rest
is only opinion.
