Preachers and Teachers Have Exciting Game on Saturday, Saturday afternoon the members of the Lutheran Synod took a play spell and enjoyed a game of baseball. The teachers selected a team and thought they could best the preachers easily but the clergymen proved differently. There were many old time college players in both teams and it was a iast game from start to finish. The Lehrers had the best of it at first until their pitcher gave out, the score at the end of the fifth inning standing to 0 in favor of the teachers. The ministers found the new pitcher and pounded him for eight runs in a single inning. At the last half of the ninth the game stood 10 to 9 in favor of the preachers. The teachers were at bat with two men on bases and one man out. Just then the Reverend pitcher put on steam however, and fanned out two straigth, giving the battle to the clergy. The batteries were Minis- Behnke of Whitenmore. Umpires J. H. Abel of Fort Dodge and Rev Ansorge of Manning. There was a good deal of interest among the spectators to know what a clergyman would say when he fanned out with the bases full and two men out. The Reverends held their tem pers admirably however, even under adverse circumstances. REMEMBER THEIR FRIENDS. Algona, Iowa. Aug. 30, 1906.

We wish to be remembered to all our friends there, and hope Denison will continue to grow and prosper. Respectfully your friends, Mr. and Mrs. Harry Grummons and Audra. a GRANTED LEAVE OF ABSENCE We learn from the daily papers that the Waterloo school board has granted Prof. H. H.

THE METHODIST CONFERENCE. The Des Moines Annual Conference of the M. E. Church will begin its Forty Seventh session Wednesday, Sept. 12th. in Wesley Church. Des Moines. The session will be presided over by Bishop Earl Granston, of Washington, D. C. whose presidency of the Conference for the first time will be heartily welcomed. Rev. C. L. Nye is the entertaining pastor. The Des Moines Conference repre sents about one fourth of the territory of the State, and is divided into six districts. Its Roll Call this year will receive response from just three hun dred ministers, as followsPastors, 216'. Professors, Missionaries, and Evangelists, 12 Supernumerary Preachers, 15 Superannuated Preach ers 51 Presiding Elders, 6. It in cludes 459 churches a property valu ation of a little more than $2,000,000. and a membership of 51.000. The business of an Annual Confer ence is varied, and every hour for a week is crowded full the forenoons being used for Disciplinary business, while the afternoons and evenings are given up to anniversaries of the var ious Benevolent Societies. The themes discussed cover a wide range, such as Missions Education: Temper ance Sabbath Observance: State of Church at large: Social Conditions, etc. •'.* The Des Moines Conference has be come quite a Banking institution. Last year the Treasurer received and distributed to the various causes nearly $90,000. This year the sum will doubtless be larger. An important part of the business is the examinaion of young men, for entrance into Conference, and in the Course of Study. Every young man must pass a rigid examination at the door of the conference and then every year for four years, in a course of study equivalent.to the curriculum of a Theological Seminary. The great day of the Conference is Sunday. Its time honored features bring Methodists from near and far to the seat of the Conference. The day opens with a Love Feast at nine o'clock. This is followed by ordin ation of Deacons, and the Bishop's sermon, which is always an event. Jn the afternoon the Elders are ordain ed by the Bishop, and the Conference Missionary sermon is preached. This year this duty falls upon the pastor of the Denison church. The evening of Sunday is given to a mass meeting, sometimes with several speakers. The last time of the Conference business, and one in which is centered more interests than any other, is the reading of the appointments. In the afternoons during the Conference week. The Cabinet, consisting of the Bishop and the Presiding Elders, have been struggling to adjust two hundred men to as many places, and now the Bishop stands up to read the list. Some think they know where they are going, but none are absolute ly certain, and the utmost silence prevails. When the last name is read, and the benediction pronounced, then comes a scatter some going to places that are old, and some to places that are new. But every preacher has a place and every place has a preacher. The church at Denison has had a prosperous year, and will be able to report progress when th** roll is call ed. In benevolence it will stand well, its contribution this year, in cluding the W. F. M. S. and the W. H. M. S. will approximate $1200. HAS HAD A HARD TIME. August Carlson has been having hard time this week trying to put up a blacksmith shop.. He wished at first to erect it in the rear of Jacob sen's Bakery but found that it was within the fire limits. He next tried to erect jt on the lots east of the Baptist Church next to Merril's wagon shop. The council held a meeting on Monday night and by suspension of the rules an ordinance was passed placing the west 160 ft of block 84 within the fire limits. Mr. Carlson con tinued with his work but notice was served on him and he stopped. The ordinance goes into effect by publica tion today. There is in our opinion some doubt as to the legality of en forcing the ordinance before it was published. Public opinion will, how ever, support the council in its efforts to prevent the erection of any more frame buildings in the vicinity of the new hotel building. It will be too costly a structure to be jeopardized, to any greater extent At the same time there will be sym pathy for Mr. Carlson who is not rich man and who will be put to con siderable expense on account of the new ordinance. We trust that he will soon find a suitable location for his shop. QUICK ACTION. Just as Dr. H. C. Simpson was about to start for Des Moines Tuesday morning Milton McAhren thought would be a good stunt to go along and keep Doc in good company. It took Milt about two minutfs to make up his mind and about one to get ready He expects to go up in the air ship while at the fair, and he will not get back to earth until the last of, the week. v:/••••' THE DENISON REVIEW, THURSDAY, AUGUST 3, 1906. The weather today is all that the old settlers could ask. Miss Willetta Strahan returned this week from a visit in St. Paul and Minneapolis. Notice the Pencil Tablet Display in our window. W. E. Koeneman, Broadway Druggist. Miss Myrtle Barber has returned from her summer vacation and is ready for school work. Miss Mariana Sims and Aaln Sims of Council Bluffs are in Denison this week visiting Lydia Belle and Carl Frederick Kuehnle. Hon. J. P. Conner and family spent the first days of the week at Wall Lake. The Judge accumulated a large amount of tan for so brief an outing. Mr. Carl F. Kuehnle has accepted an invitation to speak before a bank ers' convention at Galesburg, 111., on Sept. 14th. Mr. Kuehnle is gaining wide reputation as a speaker along these lines. Albert Healy left today for Mcln tyre, Iowa where he has an excellent position in the public schools. Mr. Healy is a veteran teacher of wide experience and great ability and is a man the schools of Iowa can ill afford to lose. Lost, on road between Denison and Bidlack iarm, a leather satchel con taining articles of clothing and hand bag which had a sum of money in it, also a card with Mrs. D. McCord's name on it. Reward of $5.00 for the return of the same to Review office. 35-lt The Franciscan Sisters of Clinton, Iowa have been in Denison for some time and will open a Catholic paro chial school here next Monday. Good music teachers will be in attendance a limited number of boarders will be received, and every effort will be made for the intellectual, good moral benefit of its pupils. Republicans of Crawford it is up to you to do some hard thinking. The opportunity for a splendid victory is within your grasp. Come to the con vention prepared to name the best possible ticket without regard to any thing but the fitness, the availiability and the loyalty of the candidates. Such a ticket will knock the "has beens" out of the box. The State fair is now a permanent and a money making institution. Not alone does it pay ito own way but it brings hundreds of thousands of dollars into Des Moines each year. It is our opinion that the state should stop sub sidizing it except in case of necessity and that Des Moines should be allowed to pony up a small per cent of its profits from the annual harvest gather ed from the sight-seers. With dollar shaves for state fair prices Des Moines barbers ought to contribute something. Mr. E. A. Stone returned this week from Wheatland, Wyoming. He tells us that those who accompanied him were delighted with the country and with the trip. Several of them ex pect to buy lands in the irrigated dis trict as soon as they can arrange matters at home. Mr. Stone informs us that another excursion will be run on Sept. 18th at which time there will be a fair held at Wheatland which will show the resources of the country. There will be cattle roping, bronco busting and all the typical western sports. Mr. Stone says the country is fast filling up and that many sales were made to settlers this month. PUBLIC SCHOOL NOTICE. The public schools of Denison will open next Monday, Sept. 3rd. Pupils who desire to take special examin ations and new pupils who have not been assigned to grades should see the Superintendent at his office Friday morning Aug. 31st.

Robert Miesner, Schleswig's candi date for Sheriff visited Denison on Tuesday. Mrs. Ira Corey guest of Mrs. Fred of the week. of Vail was the Bradbury the first Mrs. L. Seeman and Mrs. W. Corn well returned this week from their summer outing at Okoboji. Mrs. W. E. Terry entertained a number of young ladies last evening complimentary to Miss Schumaker of Sioux City. Mr. R. Zohner is the name of the new teacher of the Lutheran paro phial school who will be installed at the church next Sunday. The Baptist ladies gave an elegant supper at McKim hall last evening. They received liberal patronage and the supper was superfine. Mrs. S. F. Ashby returned today to her home in Fairmont, Neb., after a three week's visit with her sisters Mrs. F. H. Morgan and Mrs. J. P. Conner. Prof. E. D. Lewis formerly of West Side will be superintendent of the schools of Volga, Iowa this year. We wish him success in his new position. Mr. J. L. Richardson probably had as good a time as any of the old soldiers who attended the G. A. R. encampment at Minneapolis. He was a Minnesotian before the war, hunting and trapping in the then wild country. While in Minneapolis he met two old friends of the early days with whom he went over the campaigns before the war. The Gulicks and Vossfes returned from Okoboji last night. Mr. Gulick felt that he" could not miss the old settlers picnic and we are sure the old settlers could not afford to miss him. The two families have had a delight ful and health giving summer. They have not only enjoyed themselves but have given much pleasure to others. Gene says he would not trade his launch for all the automobiles in town and only regrets that there is not even a pond near Denison. HOLINESS MEETING AT KIRON. There will be a full Gospel meet ing held at Kiron beginning Friday evening Aug 31 and continuing until Sept lOh, which all are cordially in vited to attend. Evangelists G. L. Morgan and J. W. Craft and wife of Wmdom, Minn, in Charge, CARD OF THANKS. We desire to thank the kind friends who so kindly helped us at the time of the death and burial of our beloved Father. Maggie Sharp and Brothers. Candidate Porter was sponsor for Senator Tillman when at the Center ville Chautauqua he said that the ne-' groes must be kept from the polls by force if necessary and gloried in the record of fraud and violence made by the South. He said the negroes must either be cowed into submission or. annihilated. And Porter sat by his side and approved. Some of our sand-pat friends have asked us how they can consistently vote for Governor Cummins. For our part we do not see how they can con sisently do otherwise. The propo sitions before and after the convention are entirely distinct. Before the con vention the choice offered the repub ican votei' was betweeft PerktnS" »and Cummins and betweenyjftandpatism and progressivism, today the choice is between Porter and free trade and Cummins, standing on a platform to which no believer in protection can object. There is no dodging the fact that the election of Porter on a free trade platform in the banner republi can state of Iowa would be a terrific back set to republicanism and pro tection throughout the nation.
