VOL. 51 ~4' DAIRY TRAIN FAILS TO ATTRACT Few Dairy Herds in Crawford County May Have Been Responsible for the Small Attendance. ALL COULD HAVE PROFITED Prominent Dairymen Aecompany the Train and Give Very Interesting Talks—Dr. Gibson Sings. The dairy special, which visited points in western Iowa last week, fail ed to attract much of a crowd when it reached Denison on Friday afternoon. The fact that. Crawford county has very few. dairy herds may be responsi ble for the small attendance, although every farmer who has milk cows could have profited by hearing the lec tures delivered by men who have made a study of this important industry. The three special cars came into Den json over the Illinois Central railway, being attached to the regular west bound passenger train, which arrives in Denison about noon. The afternoon program was divided into three parts, the first being the lectures at the high school gymnasium. Mr. W. B. Bar ney state dairy and food commission er of Des Moines, was the first speaker on the program and devoted his time to boosting for the dairy. He declared that the local co-operative dairies need and are worthy of help for they bring results to the localities in which they are situated. Mr. Barney stated that there are 476 creameries in the state of Iowa, and that 470 of these are located in the northern two-thirds of the state, showing that the north is more inclined to the dairy industry than the southern part of the state, and for that reason the land in north ern Iowa is worth from $15 to $50 more an acre than land in southern Iowa. In speaking of the seed corn proposition Mr. Barney advised that farmers in northern Iowa purchase seed corn from their neighbors or seed hoqses in this locality or a little north of here and not send to the southern part of the state for it.- The reason for this is that the corn from southern Iowa will not mature in the the state. Mr. Bar- "present he formation to impart. E. E.Estle, dairy expert, who accom panied the train, was the next speak er on the program, and he gave tlio%e present an insight into the care of a dairy herd along the line of proper ra tions. Mr. Bstle could not say too much in favor of the silo, but in build ing one he impressed upon his audi ence that It should be built of good air tight material that would prevent an excess of air reaching the silage. The contents of a silo must be kept air tight if the best results are ob tained, said Mr." Estle, and on bringing out this point he said that those who make Bauer kraut do not use a barrel with stays' that will permit the air to get in, for then when ready to use it would be found in a mushy condition. He advised farmers who do not have silos to grind their corn, cob and all. so there would be no waste as there is p. certain amount of feeding value in the cob. He ended by giving a few examples of balanced rations for milk cows. Dr. J. I. Gibson, our former towns^ man, was present and favored the audience with his famous song on the Iowa milk cow. which was appreciated by everyone present. After the lecthres all went to the Laub livery barn to inspect the local dairy cows which had been brought in for judging purposes. It had been planned to look over the cows present, but the time was so limited that the characteristics of only one or two cows were explained. number of people took advantage of visiting the three special cars on the I. C. tracks. All three cars were lighted by a farm lighting plant which can be installed on any Iowa farm at a small cost. Water was supplied to the cars by a farm pumping and storage system. There was also a type of milking ma chine in operation, which created con siderable interest among those who had never had an opportunity of see ing one df these wonderful machines. There were several other exhibits in the way of Babcock testers, separat ors, milking utensils, etc. One of the most interesting exhibits was that showing the relative value of foods. It Was shown that beans and corn meal are the only food stuffs that are rela tively cheaper than milk. There were three cows on exhibition in one of the cars, one a prize Jersey lor which the owner has refused $3,000 and also a Holstein and an Ayrshire, all three beini representative of lead ing dairy breeds* All three cows have been tested and made records in the production of milk and butter 1 4. 4, 4, 4, 1 DELOIT ITEMS.

"Successful hatches come as a re sult of careful preparation. We ad vise every poultryman to thoroughly test his apparatus and clean his ma chine before lie places his eggs for hatching," say the poultrymen at the Iowa State college. Test the incubator thermometer against a reliable clinical thermome ter. Place both in warm water at about 103 degrees F.. incubating tem perature. If the incubator thermome ter does not test with the clinical, see if it has slipped down in its fastenings, winch is often the case. If so, slip it into place and scratch the glass for fu ture corrections. If this is not the case, buy a new thermometer. Over winter the ether in the ordi nary thermostat is likely to have evap orated. To test it, hold a match under it, not too close, and see if it raises the disc. If it does it is in good order. A good scrubbing inside and out with soap and water is the best meth od of cleaning the incubator. Dust the cloth diaphragms and clean out the flues that may have become clogged with soot from a smoky lamp. BY BART Homer Baker Endorsed for Mayor of Manilla and His Opponent Will Be Rossoe Saunders.

We are in receipt of a copy of the Butler County Press, published at Greene, containing a copy of an ad dress delivered .by Carl F. Kuehnle up "American Citizenship." The Press is very enthusiastic about the candidacy of Mr. Kuehnle and pre diets that he will carry Butler county by a vote of two to one against the en tire field. Mr. Kuehnle spoke before the Butler County Fanners' institute recently and made a distinct impression. The de mand for the publication of his speech was so insistent that Mr. Tracey, the editor, published it in full, and yet it must be borne in mind that Mr. Kuehn le had a very limited acquaintance in that county before speaking there. This is but a sample of the way his candidacy is being received every where he speaks. The fact that some of the congress men want the government clerks to work more does not prove that they could safely move to have public of ficials in their own districts keep long er hours.

ENERGETIC AND HONEST MAN Deceased Came to America in Year, 1868 and to Crawford County a Short Time Later. Kiron, M&rch 20th, (Special to the: Review)—The news that quickly spread throughout the neighborhood on last Mbnday morning of the sudden death of Mr. Olaf Gradin, came as a great surprise and shock. Mr. Gradin left home in tV»e morning well and hearty, and went ,to the P. Sjodin farm to bring home a stove he had purchased. At the Sjodin. place he was in the wagon waiting for the stove to be brought out, and an apparent stroke of heart trouble quickly ended the life of this honored pioneer. Olaf Gradin's birthplace was in Hel gum, Guxas, Sweedeu. Born on Mar. 3, 1844, he had reached the age of 72 years and 11 days when the chap ter of his life was closed. He remain ed in his native land until 1868, when he decided to come to America, where lie had heard of the opportunities open to those who possessed vim and ener gy. He believed that a living could be more easily made here, and under" better circumstances than it could be obtained in his native country. Com ing first to Crawford county, he de cided to locate here and for a short time made his home south of Kiron. Later, the neighborhood north of Ki ron in Ida county Induced him to pur chase a tract of land and build a home and he has resided there ever since. In 1874 he was united in marriage to his now surviving wife. This union was blessed with six children, who are Alfred and Abraham, Martha and Mrs. John F. Petersen, all ot this neigh borhood, Olaf Gradin, of Hawarden, la., and Mrs. Reo. Osbuck. of Mead. Neb. All of the children were present: at his funeral except Mrs, Osbuck, who was unable to attend. Besides the family, he is mourned by one sister, Mrs, Lars Anderson, in. Kiron, one: Be sides a" very large circle of neighbors and friends. Mr. Gradin was converted in the year 1876, and baptized on April 8th ot the same year. He joined the bap-, tist church in Kiron, transferring his membership to the Ida Church, which was organized in 1885 with Mr. Gradin as one of the charter members. He remained a 'very faithful member and supporter of the church up to the time of his death. Mr. Gardin was one of the sturdy, enerjetic and honest type of Swede, who always make the best kind of fathers, citizens, neighbors and friends. In his home, as elsewhere, he could always be relied upon, as his princi ples, which he always followed, were to be honest and fair and square with all with whom he came in contact. Being of a very enerjetic and indus trious nature, he managed with hard work and practical planning to suc ceed in his tilling of the soil to such an extent that allowed him to rest and enjoy in peace his latter days, and leave his loved ones well provided for. Those in need never went away from his door empty handed, and in all local undertakings., which were for the upbuilding of the community, Mr. Gradin was always found to assist and promote in any way he could. He was he could. He was one of the pioneers of his neighborhood. The funeral took place on Friday afternoon from the church, the ser vices being conducted by Rev. A. E. Carlson, the pastor. The services were attended by a large concourse of neighbors and friends. The remains were interred in the Arthur cemetery. Small Potatoes Good Seed. What shall Iowa farmers do with all the small potatoes they have on hand this year? Plant them, advises the extension potato man at Iowa State college. There's 110 uso In buying costly new seed with such good seed at hand. Sound potatoes the size of hen's eggs and of good shape are good seed. They should be planted whole, since it takes this much tuber to give the hill a good start and because the un cut skin protects the seed from rotting and drying in the ground. The best stands ever secured are ob tained by the use of whole seed of moderate size, says this authority. It is best not to use small potatoes every year, since it may run the seed out by propagating from the weaker hills^ year after year which grow the small potatoes but of the same stock, the moderate sized potatoes are the very best for planting. Where machine planters are used the whole seed is planted more accurately than' if cut seed is used. Small potatoes for seed are used so extensively abroad that In Great Brit ain, for instance, potatoes are graded into three sizes, chats, seed and ware. The iirst, smallest, is fed to stock, the second planted and the third used as food. It is believed that aeroplanes will be promptly sent out to locate Villa, as soon as the money is appropriated for them, the building contracts let and army, men taught how to operate them.
