Saveiry & Mitchell Appointed Sale
Distributing Agents for Widely
Advertised Soft Drink
•Will Mean Profitable Addition to the
Bottling Works' Line of Drinks
—Read Their Large Ad.
Messrs. Savery and Mitchell, own
ers of the Denison Bottling Works
liave scored another success in bring
ing to Denison the sole distribuing
rights for the new and widely adver
tised drink, "Parfay." By the deal
vliiclv they have just made, Denison
'jwril be the distributing center from
•''•which, a large number of towns and
cities in western Iowa will be supplied
with this new baveridge. Before the
Dcnisofi' Bottling Works was given
the valuable rights to "Parfay," a
searching investigation was made by
Ihe Parfay Co., and Denison was se
lected and Denison Bottling Works
was given the exclusive distributing
rights strictly on the merits of the
town as a shipping center and upon
the ability of Messers. Savery & Mit
chell to handle the volume of busi
ness that will be built up by "Parfay's"
aggressive newspaper advertising
campaign. The Parfay Co., lias select
ed the Heview as the newspaper
through which this new drink will b«
advertised in Cr/twford county and
fiurrouuding territory and the first." of
the series of advertisements appears
in this week's issue.
In speaking of the merits of Parfay
and the value of its distributing rights
Mr. .Tames Mitchell said: "From the
very start 1 have been impressed with
the. value of Parfay. 1 have found
that it is more than a mighty' good
drink and I believe it will prove popu
lar with the people in: this territory.
I found that it possessed qualities that
I had never been able to find in any
other soi't drink naturally this made
me interested in securing the bottling
and distributing rights for this section
of Iowa.
•'But it was only after the J'arfay
Co., took me into their confidence and
showed me what would be done to
popularize tins drink in this section
of the country that I became determin
ed to handle it. I have always been
a linn believer in advertising, es
pecially newspaper advertising, and
when the Parfay Co., showed me the
extent of the newspaper campaign,
us '.veil as supi limentary advertising,
that would be put behind this new
drink, I realised that it was an oppor
tunity that wj could not afford to miss.
In this da.1' and age it is not enough
merely to handle a superior product,
because th--: is very much and adver
tising age ami the people hav.T learn
ed that thev can put iheir dependence
ill-Oil 'he prc iuci.fi which they s^e a«i

Methods, it would bo hard indeed fls
take any product, however good, ami
swing it into the public favor but with
the advertising such as is being put
bafck of Parfay, the people are going
to try the driivk, and once they have
tried it, by sheer merit, it will win a
Dig place in their lives.
For these reasons, I am looking
forward to a phenomenal growth for
the Denison Bottling Works and from
what I know has been accomplished
other cities, there is no doubt in
my mind but what our plant will be
come one of the real worth-while in
dustries of this city."
The Denison Bottling Works is be
ing put into condition to handle the
volume of business that is sure to
come as a result of the salesrighls
that it has just secured, and the open
ing of the season will find it in shape
to take care of, in the best possible
manner, the local and outlying trade.
Already several hundred cases of the
new drink have been bottled and this
Aveek are being shipped to the different
dealer^ throughout western Iowa.
Messrs^. Savery & Mitchell are to
be congratulated on their work in
bringin this important industry' to
Denison and for securing such a val
uable business asset.
Weekly Crop Bulletin.
For the week ending May 1915.
The first half of the week was warm
and dry, but the latter half gave gen
eral and copious showers and about
normal temperatures. Rapid progress
was made in preparing ground for
corn and consudersvbie planting was
done, especially in tiie southern coun
ties. The rains will be of great bene
fit to small grain, pastures, meadows,
and truck fields. Small grains and
grass made rapid growth and are now
in excellent condition generally. A
large acreage of potatoes lias been
planted in the eastern counties and
the crop is doing well. Favorable
weather prevailed for the pollination
of fruits, most varieties having been
pollinated before the recent rains, and
the indications are still favorable for
an excellent crop.—Geo. M. Chappel,
Director, Des Moines, Iowa.
The scientific agriculture bulletins
are rcgurded highly by the farmers
unless they are so bold as to conflict
with the instructions they received
from their fathers.
The ladies of the Current Events
club are hereby notified that, the next
meeting will be held at the club room
on Friday afternoon, May "th, at I!: 00

ored and respected citizend. Henry

iH unusually excellent lioalth until
.Monday, when a bad cold which ho
had incurred, developed into pneu
monia, and lie passed away at-thc age
of sixty-eight years, ten months and
twelve days.
Mi-. Schoenjahn had been a resident
of West Side since 1!)12, when he and
his son, Harold, purchased a beauti
ful home in the southwestern part of
our little* city. He made his regular
visits to the homes of lws other child
ren, all of whom live in this vicinity.
Henry Scroenjahn was born on the
12th day of June, 1846, at Cettorf,
Siiileswig-Holstein, Germany. In the
spring of the year 1870. lie cajne to
America and settled in Bryant, Clinton
county, Iowa, where he liad many
friends living at that time. Here he
followed the trade of a mason. In that
city, lie was united in marriage to
Miss i'aulino Graderl on January™' !•,
In 1S78, he, with his. family, came
west and moved onto a farm near Wall
Lake. Three years later they pur
chased a farm near West Side, where
lie lived until he moved into town
three years ago.'
The deceased leaves to .mourn his

dore, Lafayette, with their families,
and Harold, ten grand-children, one
sister and a step-brother, John Ilorn
hoi't, three sons,-John, Harry and Wal
ter having passed into the great be
yond several years ago.
Seven years ago, the beloved wife
and mother passed away, leaving
great sorrow with the children and
husband. Although Mr. Scroenjahn
possessed everything which this world
could give him, he felt a keen pang
of lonliness for the woman who had
been such a loving help-mate.

the German l'tvangelical church on
Monday afternoon, after which the
remains were laid to rest in the AVest
Side cemetery. The pall Wearers were

Consulting Engineer Gives Help In
Buying Apparatus.
Because there is a good deal of
truth in the old saying of a wise school
master that "You can feed more into
a man's ears with a teaspoon than
into his ears with a scoop shovel," the
engineering extension department of
Iowa State college is encouraging pub
lic schools in the purchase of moving
picture apparatus. One of the mem
bers of the department has been made
a "consulting engineer" on moving pic
ture equipment and is giving assist
ance to all schools that ask for help.
Already educational films have been
demonstrated in Des Moines, Cedar
Falls, Marshaltown, Fayette, Eldora,
Waverly, Ottumwa, Ked Oak, Fort
Dodge, Oskaloosa and Burlington.
Several of these cities are already
arranging to buy machines.
in the purchase of moving picture
apparatus, attention must be given to
its proposed uses. The school with
a large auditorium, seating 000 or 1,000
people, needs a rpachine of a different
type from that adapted to use in class
rooms or small library rooms. Some
schools desire a machine that may be
carried from building to building and
such machines are of another type
There is still a smaller machine suit­.removed
able for story hours in libraries, show
in'g a picture 4 feet square. Other
questions involved concern the type of
screen, the darkening of rooms and
comjiliance with fire regulations. Upon
all of these questions the engineering
extension department will be glad to
give advice.
The population of Des Moines in
'1851 for tiie most part were dwellers
in the cabins 'which were once occu
pied by tho soldiers. There were two
rows of these cabins, one built west
ward fronl the junctions of the rivers,
called Coon Bow. The other, extend
ing north along the Des -Moines river,
was called the Des Moines Iiow. In
dependent of these, there were two
small hotels, two one-story brick res
idences, a few small frame houses,
several cabins built after the soldiers'
barracks, several small stores and of
fices and one small frame church
capable, by packing, of sheltering
some hundred persons, and belonging
to the Methodists. Also a small brick
court house, two stories high, used
for court house purposes, for meet
ings on' Sunday and for political and
othei» lectures during the week* and
sometimes for school. The houses
were scattered, and the people, dis
carding right angles, instead of fol
lowing the streets, by constrant tramp
ing made diagonal paths all over the
town.—From the autobiography of
John A. Nash in the April number of

Politics," published by The State His

"Mention was made in the columns
o,f the Review recently of the death

his homo in Cedar Kapids on Tues
day, April 20th. A copy of the Cedar

"Rome noted names in American

Trans-Atlantic steamship owners fig
ure that the 'European war will save
$278,000,000 to tlfe American people
by shutting off tourist travel. The
tourist will enjoy superior scenery and
get the benefit of moro healthful out
ings without carrying to foreign coun
tries a quarter of a billion dollars of
money needed by American enterpris
es. In effect, it is an application of
the principle laid down by Abraham
Lincoln in his discussion of the tariff
—that if we buy goods abroad, wo get
the goods and the foreigner gets the
money, while if wo buy at home, we
have both tiie goods and the money.
American tourists will get both health
and pleasure, and America will keep
the $275,00ii,000.
