Buy Groceries Saturday. All gro
cery stores in Davenport will be
decision reached by the Grocers as
sociation, at the meeting beld at the
Commercial club. The plan will be
placed in operation next Sunday. Al
though most of the stores down town
have closed during the entire Sab
bath day, the smaller establishments
in the outskirts of the city, especially
in the northwest and west part of
Davenport, have been open during the
morning. However, last evening,
grocers from the west and those hav
ing stores in northwest Davenport, got
together and after a brief talkfest,
reached an agreement, to close dur
ing the entire day of rest. At the
meeting the association named Thurs
day, Aug. 21, as the date for the sixth
annual picnic of the association, and
the following committees were ap
pointed to have full charge of the af
fair: John A. Feeney. chairman,

Nets $600 Per Acre. While most
strawberry growers in this vicinity
complain that the berries did not de
velop normally because of the imper
fect pollnation this season, Charles
Ensee is fortunate in harvesting a
very large crop on an acre of ground.
He reports a total yield of 6,000 quarts
which netted him about 10 cents a
quart, after paying for picking, boxes,
etc. This is a return of $600 per acre
and indicates the possibilities ,with
strawberries in this vicinity. This is
one of the best markets to be found
In Iowa and there is every reason to
believe that truck growing will de
velop to a much larger extent in the

"The jjroblrros of the city Bcbools
have received a greet deal of much
leservod attention," say the members
of the committee la their announce
ment of the program. "The very ser
ious problems of the village school j knowledge of the factors entering into
and or the rural school have r?ceived the problem of their improvement.
"We do know in a general way that
but little attention. The study and the
solution of these problems are of ob
vious complexity ?nd importance.
The committer is therefore anxious to
secure papfrs relating to rural school
hygiene and village school hygiene as
well as to city school hygiene."
la a report issued at Washington,
Philander P. Claston, United States
commissioner of education, calls at
tention to the subject of the little red
school in the following terms:

Obituary Record. Mrs. Katherlne
Watts, mother of George M. WattB ot
Davenport, died Wednesday evening
at her home in Cedar Rapids. De
ceased was born in Duncannon, Pa.,
July 2, 1836. Surviving are three sons
and one daughter. They are George
M. 'Watts, Davenport; Frank Watts,

E. P. Reynolds of Cedar "Rapids. The
funeral was held at Dexter, Iowa, this

tieir terms are ehort. their support
inadequate, their teachers poorly pre
pared, their attendance irregular, their
oanagement unscientific and wasteful
cf money, time and energy. Their
courses of study are ill-adapted to
their needs and iho houses in which
the children are taught cheap an
poorly equipped and furnished. That
th:s is not true of all rural school
gees without saving, but it is unfor
tunately true in a large measure of
most of them."
In all thre are some 212,000 one
teather little red school houtoes in the
United States alone, according to the
Washington report prepared by A. C.
Monahan. In this report Uhere Is a
picture of a one-teacher rural school
house which is characterized as "a
fair type of about oue-half of the 212,
000 onc-teather rural schools." Most
cf the original red paint seems to have
been washed off of these schools.
"A general impression has been
created," says Monahan, "(bat there
exists an American hcbool system
which is sufficient and nation wide,
with equal educational opportunities
In all parts of the country. The im
pression is erroneous. It is probably
true that the country schools, both
urban and rural, have made consider
able progress, but 'he marked progress
bss been confined almost wholly to
the city and town.
"The majority of rural schools are
housed in uncomfortable buildings, un
suitable from every standpoint, with
out proper furniture or facilities for
beating, ventilating and lighting; with
out adequate provisions for guarding
the health and morals of the children
and with comparatively little equip
ment for teaching."
Dr. Fletcher B. Dressier, school hy
giene specialist in the bureau of edu
cation, who is chairman of the com
mittee on scientific exhibit at the
J fourth international congress, has been
making a special stdy of the rural
school building and grounds. The re
sult of his investigation, which is to
be published in a special bulletin, win
be called to the attention of the dele
gates at Buffalo. Dr. Dressier found
that although there is great need for
reform, nevertheless tha Indications at
the present time point toward a mark
ed improvement New buildings are
under construction in large numbers
In many sections, and, as a rule, the
nex buildings are a great impxove
u.ent over the old ones.

"Our observations, " extending over
the last twenty-five years, have convinc
ed us beyond a doubt that exposure of
beer to light has a very detrimental in
, fluence on its quality generally, but es
pecially upon the flavor ofvthe beer.
We have tested beers repeatedly in
. this direction, placing the bottles into
direct sunlight, and testing the same after
one, two, three and five minutes exposure,
found that the beer with three and five
minutes exposure became undrinkat le,on
account of the peculiar odor developed.
.The detrimental effect of light upon
beer can be successfully counteracted
by the employment of brown or dark
colored glass bottles, and such bottles
are there fore recommendable" , , .
