Do you in r~ animals in Iowa has begun in earnest," said Mrs. E. Irene Rood, in an interview with the Daily Gate City last evening and new societies have recently been organized in all the principal cities in Iowa, and the prin cipal topic of conversation among hu manitarians today is the organization of a humane society in Keokuk. '•Throughout all the centuries there has gone on an unceasing conflict be tween the forces of kindness and cru elty, between the forces of barbarism and the forces of Christian civiliza tion. Gradually the idea bas obtained and is obtaing more and more every day, that animals are entitled to hu mane treatment. The first society for the prevention of cruelty to animals in America, was organized by Henry Bergh, the founder of the work in the United States in 1866, and to 'his us preme self-sacrifice, united with faith ful and untiring energy Is due the great work that is going on all over the United States today. "At the present time most of the states of the Union give protection to nelpless animals as well as to chil dren by legislative enactment to which, of course, must be added the organization of humane societies them selves. "In dealing with this subject of T*1!10 LAXATIVE kindness to animals how striking the words of England's greatest journal, 'The Spectator:' "As nothing can Tepay the services and the friendship of faithful animals, so nothing- can re lieve us of the responsibility in the tmtold suffering we have too often allowed animals out of sight to suffer only for want of interest. The per fect tenderness of Divine love is em bodied forever in the image of the hen gathering her chickens undeT her wing.'" "When wo turn to God's holy word we set fortli time and again our duty to practice kindness toward animals. Like us they come from the paternal licart of God. We are not surprised, therefore, that He should sanction kindness toward dumb animals.'' .• "As announced a few days ago we are to have a Humane Society in Keo kuk. Have you thought' about it? well as defend GENUINE -Ete v« & The ttiemBelves. On the other hand the animal is helpless and speechless an& can do nothing but suffer in silence. Of course you feel kindly in a vague, sentimental sort of way toward all „u„ dumb creatures. This is well as far as it goes. But is there to be any practical application of your feelings "Remember, in life's work what you feel about a thing does not count for much. It is what you do that" counts. Thus alone can your genuineness and sincerity be proven and at the same time be of service where service is needed. O, Blessed Savior, who ha^ taught us that not a sparrow falleth without the knowledge of our Father in Heaven, quicken our sensibilities and teach us ever to bear in mind our accountability to our Father in Heav en, for our treatment of His great speechless family, so that we may al ways deal justly and mercifully to wards them, remembering that He will exact an account of our stewardship of them In the last great day." Mrs. E. Irene Rood, representative of the American Humane Association will be present and will address the meeting. A fine program has been prepared with a number of short speeches by distinguished speakers and the follow ing delightful musical numbers will be rendered at the opening of the meeting. No admission will be charg ed. TO CURE A COLD IN ONE JAY BROMO Quinine Tablets. Druggists refund money if it fails to cure. E. W. GROVE'S signa ture is on each box. 25c. THE IOWA CORN GROWER'S ASS'N.

AND SIGNERS KEOKUK WON AGAIN ........ Meeting Ha# Been Already The white flag has been hoisted and Alva Williams, catcher for the Terre Haute club of the Central League is no longer a "holdout," for he has af fixed his signature to a Terre Haute contract for the season of 1909 with a very substantial increase in the money column, and everything is en- Carthage and Keokuk friends of Wil-' liams, who is well known throughout the Central Association and in minor leagues of this part of the country, will be glad Jo learn that ihe has come to some satisfaotory agreement with the Terre Haute management and will again be with that club next season. Williams discredits the rumor that he is to play first bkse for Terre Haute next season and says he will be behind the bat. Many fans disagree as to the proper position for this tall player, many being of the opinion that he could handle 'himself well on the ini tial, sack. Annis Wants More Salary. Des Moines Register and Leader: William Annis, the shortstop of Wich ita, roi whom Anderson was traded. is holding out for more money. Think ing that a new place and a better one was in prospect, he wanted to boost his salary of last year by just exact ly $25. President Higgins of the local club was not able to see his line of reasoning and immediately turned him down. Then Annis demanded his transportation, and this too was refus ed. so Annis is holding out. Because of tie gTeat abundance of material the Des Moines club has on hand the lio'c'outs will not be treated with much mercy. The men have all been tendered just and commensurate contracts, so that there is little or no excuse for holding out on the Des Moines ciub. Annis' contract will cioubt'ess be coming to Des Moines within a day or two, and it is doubt ful if he will walk the four hundred odd mi:es between here and Wichita. Many Signatures Go. When Hon. E. P. McManus departs Tuesday for the Capitol he will carry as "excess baggage" a suit case bulg ing out on all sides with a petition con taining the signatures of hundreds of Keokuk citizens and baseball fans, It is thought 2,500 will,sign petition. The petition is the one draftn up at Cae boosters', meeting Friday evening and is to the judiciary committee of the Iowa legislature. The bill, which if passed, would knock Sunday base ball in Iowa, will be brought before that committee probably Wednesday, and Hon. McManus will be there with the petition and signatures.'
