Church, Preaches Excellent Sermon—Glee Club Leads in Song Service.. On Sunday evening one of the larg est congregations ever present on a occasion of this kind was gathered at the Methodist church to. take part in the baccalaureate services of the Denison high school. The church looked very pretty decorated with bridal wreath and snowballs. Miss Hazel Laub played a beautiful organ solo as the members of the class of 1915, followed by the faculty of the h'igh school, took their places directly in front of the pulpit. The services were opened by the singing of the hymn "Abide With Me," followed by prayer by Fiev. J. A. Lemke, pastor of the German Methodist church. The choir, made up of nigh school voices, very beautifully rendered "The Radi ant Morn," under the direction of Miss Beatrice Lally, after which a very tine baccalaureate sermon was delivered by Rev. J. L. Boyd, pastor of the M. E. church. After a few words of hearty com mendation and congratulation to the members of the graduating class, Rev. Boyd. preached a most impressive ser mon from the text, "Gold and silver have I none but such ai* 1 have, give 1 unto thee." The sermon did not present methods of gaining material success in life or attaining position, but was a plea for the acceptance of Jesus Christ and His religion as the source of the greatest happiness and service. The services were closed by the hymn, "Lead, Kindly Light," followed by the benediction pronounced by Rev. J. A. Lemke. "If Roosevelt were running for pres ident today his vote would be smaller thai* that of the socialist candidate," assent the Creston Advertiser. In "the rapidly growing strength of the woman's movement in nearly all lands," the Iowa City Citizen sees "a promise to the world of better things to come."

MAKE STUDY OF AGRICULTURE Farmers and Iowa State College Will Join in Study Viait to More Than 300 Farms in Month of June. 42 COUNTIES WILL BE VISITED Automobile Tour of Each County to Be Organited by the Farmers and Business Men. In each comity an autoinobilo tour will be organized, by the farmers and business men and the day,a run will include stops at some of the best farms and homes. At each place the lec turers will give talks on farm animals, crops, soils and buildings. The women are not to be overlooked and lecturers from the home economics department will discuss various home problems at each stop. It is likely that at each tour there will be from 100 to 200 auto mobiles and that from 500 to 1,000 people will be reached each day. "See your county first," would be a good motto for this tour. It is quite customary for residents of one county to talk about the fine live stock and other agricultural achievements of some other section of the state and overlook the good things within a few miles of them, merely because they do mot know about them. This tour gives the farmers excellent opportunity to study local conditions. The. complete schedule of this tour is as follows: June 1—Ringgold and Van Buren counties. June 2—Lucas and Lee counties.. June 3—Clarke and Wapello coun ties. June 4—Adams and Monroe coun -tlesc-- June 8—Washington and Adair counties. June 9—Keokuk and Cass counties. Juue 10—Mahaska and Pottawatta mie counties.

GREENE COUNTY VOTES BONDS, Authorizes the Issue of $150,000 in Bonds for the Construction of a New Court House. Jefferson,. May 20 By a sweeping majority of two to one, the votero of Greene county indorsed the new court house proposition at the special elec tion held yesterday, voting in favor of a bond issue of JITiO.OuO. The vote of approval was far more decisive than anyone" had anticipated, the country precincts, with one or two exceptions, comin forward with ma jorities of from two to one, up to nine to one in favor of the new building. The eight townships which contain no towns—AVillow, Greenbrier, Keudrick, Cedar, Grant, Oawson, Jackson and llardin—voted 2fG for and 152 ayainst. Six of them were for it and two were against. Hardin carried the banner in the country vote by giving 44 for to 5 as ainst while Cedar was strong est in opposition with only seven votes for and -10 asainst. Among the townships containing towns, liristol was foremost in sup port of the proposition with a vote of Cy for and 17 against, while Junction No. 2 came second with Iti! for and 17 against. Grand, June.tion (j'.r,vo the heaviest adverse majority—14 for and 155 against—due, it is believed, to the fact that they have just, built a new $45,000 school building and the tax question entered ip as a controlling factor. The same situation applies to Scranton and Churdan, where there were majorities against, but not near ly so decisive as in Grand Junction, ltippey joined with Cooper, Oana and Farlin in giving the proposition a ma jority. Jefferson came forward with by far the largest vote in her history, and with the most united front she has ever brought to any public question. The second ward was the banner one in percentage, with 183 for and 12 TE FUNERAL OF THOS. ADAHS Well Known Stock Raiser and Farm er of Near Vail Dies at his Home Wednesday, May 19th.

Enough extra help is allowed to equal, in tlie aggregate, three or four extra people for the entire year. The force we now have should be doubled in number, and it would require about this many additional clerks "to keep the work up as it should b#. I want the people to know that it is. through 110 fault of this department that ap plicants have to wait so long to re ceive their number plates after send ing in their money and applications therefor. "You refer to receipting for money sent.

Is Injured by Dynamite. Uunlap, May 22—l.loyd Chambers, a young man employed 011 I he M. P. Brace farm east of town, was pain fully injured by a dynamite explosion, i^le had been employed by Mr. Brace (o clefir a piece of land and was us ing dynamite to clear the stumps. lie had set three charges and after light ing the last charge noticed a bar standing up against a stump where he had his first charge. Thinking the bar might strike him when the ex plosion occurred he went to remove it, but had scarcely reached it when the charge went off, closely followed by a second one nearby. Young Cham bers was thus caught in the very midst of an inferno. Several injuries were made about his face and arms by pieces of wood from the stump and both ears required several stitches. An artery was severed in his forearm causing the loss of much blood before medical aid could be secured. Al though the injuries are quite serious the young man is rapidly recovering and will be able to be about in a few days. New Parties Buy Candy Kitchen.

Those who have been in the Denison place say that it is kept in an admirable shape and are confident that they will give Car roll an attractive and reputable place of refreshments. They have signed a long term lease for the entire build ing and will use the basement as an ice cream factory.—Carroll Times.

DECEASED WAS BORN IN IRELAND Mother of Five Sons and One Daugh ter, All of Whom, With Aged Husband, Survive Her. Dunlap, May 25—(Special to the Review)—The entire community was greatly shocked to hear that Mrs. Pat rick Houston had died suddenly of heart failure Sunday while at the home of her son, E. W. Houston. Mrs. Houston, with other members of her family, attended mass at St. Patrick's church at 10 o'clock and afterwards attended the exercises incidental to the laying of the corned stone to the new parochial school building. After the exercises all of the family stopped at tlie home of her son for dinner. Mary Haley-Houston was born in Mayo county, Ireland, in 18-15, coming to America with her parents in child hood, locating in Girardsville, Penn., where she grew to, womanhood and was married to Patrick Houston in, 1864. Mr. aud Mrs. Houston came to Dunlap in 1878, Mr. Houston being employed by the Northwestern, but a few years later they decided to move onto a farm in order to give their sons a better chance of advance ment. They were still residing on the farm at the time of her death. Mrs. Houston i3 survived by her aged husband, five sons, James J., Ed ward W„ living on farms of their own near home Patrick, Jr., John and Ar thur at home with their parents, and an only daughter, Mrs. John Hartigan, of Ute also fifteen grandchildren, who with a large circle of friends, have the blessed memory of a chris tian wife and mother to comfort them in the hours of loneliness. As a friend and neighbor Mrs. Houston gave her loyal support and assistance to those whom her conscience told her were deserving and by doing so she brought comfort and consolation to many ach ing hearts. The sincere sympathy of tho entire community goes out to the bereaved family ai^d in particular to the aged husband. The time of the funeral ha3 not been set, but it will be held from St. Patrick's church, of which Mrs. Hous ton was a revered and devoted mem ber. The Eagle Grove Eagle says the Iowa delegation to the republican con vention of 1916 promises to be "a fac torless contribution to Cummins' sel fish prido"—that it undoubtedly will go to the convention "tied up" to Cum mins, "which will simply put it out of all influence."

British Foreogn Office Requested fop Meaning of Statement Made on Thursday of Last Week. Washington, May 22—The determi nation of the United States govern ment not to recognize or be bound by the provisions of the British order in council. wrhich has declared an em bargo on all commercial intercourse directly with Germany, as well as in ward or outward bound through neu tral countries, was manifested in sev eral ways today. The foreign trade advisers of the state department announced that they had decided to suspend all confer ences with British einbassy officials here with reference to the informal arrangements which had been in pro gress not only to assist American cot ton exporters in obtaining payment tor cargoes detained, but also to se cure for American importers Ameri can owned goods now iu Germany, con tracted for beforeUhe order in council w«nt into effect. Secretary Bryan said this step had been taken in or der to secure a better understanding with the British government as to the capacity in which the foreign trade advisers were acting. Page to Ask Explanation. Ambassador Page, at London, was instructed also to inquire of the Brit ish foreign office the meaning of the statement made in their memorandum issued on Thursday that thp While officials of the department, were reticent concerning the differ ences referred to by tlie foreign trade advisers, these are understood to re late to correspondence between Brit ish officials and the advisers, offering a plan for the treatment of the Amer ican owned goods. Originally tlie time limit for the shipment out of Ger many cf American goods ordered be fore March 1st was set for June 1st, but tha British government announced several days ago that this period had been extended until June 15th. Private Shippers May Bargain. In granting this concession the Brit ish officials are understood to have referred as a concession to the Unit ed States government, and this, as well as other features of tlie plan whereby American owned goods were to be shipped through neutral ports from Germany to the United States, were of such a character as to causo the state department to believe that any acquiescence would be construed as a legal recognition of the' British order in council. Until a different un derstanding is reached or the plan for the handling of American owned goods is vitally changed, the foreign trade1 advisers will not participate in any conference on behalf of the American importers or exporters. In dividually. American merchants, of course, can continue their negotiations with the Britsh government, either through the British embassy liere or a "The movies are rendering service to the cause of temperance by fur nishing at a moderate price a place for people to go for relaxation and en tertainment in their leisure hours," asserts the Sibley Tribune.

AMBASSADOR MAKES INQUIRIES VS| 'i J: 4 terms of an arrangement between American cotton representatives and the Brit ish government were acceptable to the United States. Sir Cecil Spring-Rice, the British ambassador lyere, called on Secretary Bryan during the day to explain that he also had always, understood that the United States government was not to be considered as having recognized the British order in council, irrespec tive of the assistance- given the cotton shippers for the..foreign traders' ad visers1 of the state department. Some error is understood to have been made in London on the subject. The decision of the trade advisers to suspend their conferences, how ever, was reached .before the British foreign office memorandum was issued und based on differences of a practi cal character as to the shipment of American owned goods from Germany through neutral countries, some of which had been contracted for and some of which had even been paid for before the order in council was issued. The text of the trade advisers' state ment follows: Diplomatic Conferences Stopped.' "In view of the differences which have arisen in the informal and un official conferences between Sir Rich ard Crawford, the commercial adviser of the British embassy, and Robert F. Rose and W.fR. Fleming, the trade ndvisers of thex department of state, who have been in a personal capacity representing the importers of tha United Slates, Mr. Rose and Mr. Fleming have decided that they can not continue these conferences until certain of tho difficulties have been removed, and they- have therefore made a full report of what has taken place to the department of state and will await its action." a a?: "u-.'
