We think it was a mistake to make any charge, because the amount realized from the coffee would hardly compensate for the criticism which some people indulged in.

Many interesting facts concerning local government in early Iowa are being brought to light by Mr. Clar ence R. Aurner, Research Assistant in the State Historical society of Iowa, who is preparing a history of township government in Iowa. While he was delving into the dusty records in the -court house at Dubuque he found a no lice of the first election held in north eastern Iowa. The election was held in 1834 in the house or P. A. Lorimier in what is now the city of Dubuque, and at three other precincts. At this time only a narrow strip of land along the eastern border of Iowa was sur veyed and open for settlement, the re mainder of what is now the state of Jowa being still in the possession of the Indians. In 1834 this narrow strip of land, which was known as the Black Hawk purchase, was attached to the territory of Michigan for purposes of government, and was divided into two counties, "Du Buque" and'^Demoine." Denison has a man who wants an automobile with all his heart, but the nearest he can come to it is to wear an automobile cap. Carl Morris, the Oklahoma prize fighter may be a fizzle, but he cleaned up $50,000 at that line of work the past year. 111)1 HWBHPW"' jUg I vpurt'" j.iiyilitfH Tomorrow We Make Our fir Display in Holiday Gift Books Books for Girls MEADE'S SERIES— ASweet Girl Graduate.

We wondered what was the matter. Upon investigation of the subscription book we found Bill was short $5.65. THE DENISON REVIEW, WEDNESDAY, NOV. 8, 1911. Santa Gaus Takes A Peep Inside Our Christmas Book Covers. We caught him at it, the jolly old rascal. He declared: "Our Holiday books this year would tempt even a busy man to take an hour off for thorough enjoyment." We suspect Santa may have written some of these inter esting books himself.

SALOMON FURNITURE CO. A:' DEATH OF HELEN GARBER. Great White Plague Claims One of Denison's Fairest Daughters on Last Thursday. On Thursday, November 2d, the death angel, quietly and tenderly, end ed the months of suffering, and the spirit of Helen Garber left the frail body and entered into its eternal re ward. It was the end of one of the saddest, most determined, but most hopeless struggles against the great white plague which has brought sor row and untimely desyth to so many homes. But a few years ago and Helen was a strong, active, healthy girl, am bitious, energetic and filled with hope and confidence in the future. She graduated from the Denison high school and passed from the ranks of tne pupils to the ranks of the teachers of the public schools. It was not long, however, before there were evidences of the dread disease. The story of how Denison people rallied to her help how she was surrounded by the love of her parents and her friends how she was sent, first to the state hospital neat Iowa City, and then to the bright sunshine of Tuscon, Ariz. how, when this proved unavailing, she was brought back to dear old Deni son to meet the inevitable how her cheerful, patient spirit never faltered, never gave up how the strong arms of Denison^ love and loyalty en compassed her•about and made as Bright as possible the last days of the beautiful young life how the faithful mother watched and toiled without ceasing how the father gave his days to work and his nights to tender min istrations at her bedside all these form a chapter of Denison life, filled with pathos and with tragedy, but re plete with such love and heroism and devotion that it makes one glad and proud to belong to this community of friends. Helen, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. T. W. Garber, was born in Denison on September 18, 1886, being but littte more than twenty-five years of age at the time of her death. She graduated from the Denison high school in 1905 and later taught scho&l in the country and at Schleswig. The last two years of her life were spent in the struggle with disease. Returning home after a vain but happy stay in Arizona, she gradually grew weaker and weaker until the end came. Funeral services were held at the home, Rev. J. H. Senseney delivering a brief but beautiful and hopeful ad dress. Besides her grief-stricken par ents, Helen leaves one sister, Mrs. Irene Onken, to mourn her sad and un timely death. The sympathy of the entire community is with them and has been with them all through the brave struggle they have made to preserve the life of their loved one. She was one of the brightest, cheer iest, bravest and best of girls. A lov ing daughter, a true and affectionate friend, a kind and capable teacher, an earnest and conscientious christian. We know that her sweet spirit has found rest and peace and eternal love. No Use. Pocahontas had saved the life of Captain John Smith. "What would have been the use of killing him, anyway, pa?" she asked. "There are millions of other John Smiths, and there wouldn't have been a line about it in the papers." Her news' instinct was unerring. Saving the captain's life made a first page story of the affair.—Chicago News. S Court Houses Hold Valuable Records. All over the state of Iowa in the county court houses are priceless rec ords telling the story of settlement and government in local communities. Mr. Clarence R. Aurner, Research Assist ant in the State Historical society of Iowa, is. engaged in writing a history of township government in Iowa, and in order to secure material for Ms work he has visited the court houses in Burlington, Dubuque, Fort Madison, Tipton, Iowa City, and in a number of the older counties. Here he has found records of county officers and boards of supervisors going away back to the time from 1834 to 1836 when the peo ple of the Iowa country were governed by the governor and legislature of the Territory of Michigan. In most cases the records were kept in substantially bound volumes, but in some instances they wpre written on loose sheets of paper which are now brown and faded with age. In many counties, however, the penmanship is of a higb order, and so the records are very legible. It behooves county officers to take great care with their books and papers in order that they may be preserved for future generations, for in these rec ords is to be found much of the most valuable material for writing the his tory of the state.
