"C $fv. r. I'. 'i Rev. Wm. Wakeham now of Cairo, Egypt Revisits Denison. Has been Engaged in Mission Work. Right from the shadow of the pyramids Rev. Wm. Wakeham returned on Monday to revisit Denison the scene of his boy hood days and to pay loving tribute at the grave of his father in Oakland cemetery. It is more than twenty years since Mr. Wakeham left the farm place north 'of this city and during the greater part of that time he has been engaged in mission work. His head quarters now are at Cairo, Egypt but his work takes him all through the fertile Nile Valley amomg the teeming-, ignorant and superstitions peo ple of the land of ihe Phaarohs. Mr. Wakeham tells us that in Cairo, a city of Goo.ooo people, one may live with |all the comforts of modern life although prices are high. In the interior it is difficult to find luxuries, comforts or even what we consider necessities, ninety per cent of the people are Vohamedan. There are villages of ten thousand peo ple where hardly a person can read or write, Mr. Wakeham has been in Egypt about three years, he says the Arabic is a very difficult language and al. though he can make his wants known and has vocabulary sufficient for ordinary travel he is far from considering himself an Arabic scholar. Since the English occupation Egypt has been enjoying a boom. Financially and commercially tbe country is in good shape and the peoole are busy. He showed us ac'ipping from the Egypt Gazette, giving an account of a land sale of nearly 5000 acres where the average price was over $400 per acre. It would seem from this that Horace Greeley's advice to the home seeker, to go west still holds good. Egyptian winters are delightful, but the summer season is excessively hot. Lower Egypt is the Nile Vailey Into this narrow strip are crowded the millions of the pop ulation. and on pither ide the almost limitless deser't. Above the cataract of the Nile i- the Soudan, a region more sparsuly settled, but now rapidly opening up. Through systems of dams and reser voirs the area made fertle by the Nile is bein£ extended, and much of the desert reclaimed Some of the $400. per acre land in the sale mentioned was reclaimed, and. Mr. Wakeham says he finds much to do in establishing schools and churches and trying in other ways to bring the na tives to a better life. While in Denison Mr. Wakeham was the guest of Mr. M. E. Jones. Be left on Monday evening for New York. On July 5th he sails for Europe, will spend some weeks on the continent and will then return to his Egyptian home. r' The Hub Men's Suits. $20 Suits, now ...$12 50 18 Suite, now 1150 16.50 Suits, now 10 00 15 Suits, now 875 12.50 Suits, now 7.50 10.00 Suits, now 6-25 8.50 Suits, now 5 00 Young Men's Suits.

Missouri Valley is a smaller town than Denison. It does not compare with Den ison in wealth, but it is carrying out an enterprise this year that puts in th? shade anything of the kind Denis jn has ever at tempted. The ''something" is a Chautauqua be ginning July 1st. The opening gun is Joseph W. Folk, the great reform gover nor of Missouri. July 4th will be made notable by an addre-s by the renowned Charles J. Landis of Indiana, one of the most eloquent men in Congress. July 5th will be Bryan day, a great drawing card for many. July 6th will mark the appear ance of Capt. Richard P. Hobson of Cu ban War fame. It is now announced that Lawson, the famous Lawson of fren zied Finance, will close the course July 12th. This, of course, is not the com plete program, far from it every day is filled with good things by great lecturers, singers and entertainers. Missouri Valley should have splendid patronage to repay it for its effort. The point of a'l this in relation to Den ison is, that such things can be accom plished if the right measures are taken and taken in time. Next year the new court house will be completed and ready for occupancy. The ded*cation should be made a grand affair. It should be the •=is nal f-r such a festival as Denison and Crawford county has never known before. It should be an intermingling of oratory and wisdom and amusement and down right fun for all. Not a catch penny show, but a genuine celebration, repre sentative of the wealth and intelligence of the county. Now is the time for the for mation of a stock company within the Commercial club, to co-operate with the board of supervisors to bring such a cele bration about. A strong executive com mittee should be appointed stock solicitel to be paid in installments the supervisors should be asked to co-operate a program should be arranged that would include some of tbe most noted men of the state aud Nation the date should be fixed and for a year the publicity department should beat work letting the people of the entire state know that at that time Denison ex pects to have the grandest week of Jubilee and fun and rejoicing that»any town ever had since Adam ate 2 green apples. There should be a carnival street set apart for amusaraeats and ^concessions, but the main program should be dignified, worthy of the occasion and of the people of Deuison. For a year every Denison merchant should advertise it in everyjletter he sends out for a year every Denisonjpaper should keep it before the public. 0The program shoald be arranged with tha board of su pervisors and then correspondence should SHIRTS.

The week should be a combined Fourth of July, street car nival and Chautauqua. There should be grand parades and fireworks, and every thing that pertains to the making of a great and enjoyable and, at the same time, 'instructive week. The week of Jubilee would cost not less than $2500. Denison would get back every penny of it in the immense crowds that would be drawn, in the splendid advertisement it wojld. give the city for a year to come, and in the good will the successful carry ing out of such a program wou'd gain for our merchants and business men. We do nol believe it would be diflicult to raise the amount named, providing a compe tent committee is selected, the stock made payable in installments as the work pro gresses and every business man made to feel that there is something doing that will be worth ttje money. If Denison can raise $1500 for the ordinary street fair, and $600 and over for a Fourth of July celebration, it could certainly raise $5,000 for a collosal Jubilee week that should overshadow anything of the kind ever given in Iowa before. It can be done and done to the great credit of our city and of our business men. The opportunity is ours, shall we accept it? If we do we will make 1906 mark a new era in tbe growth and progress of Denison.
