VOL. 51 THINKS POSTS SHOULD MOVE Commercial Club at Friday Night Meeting Recommends Removal of Posts From Paved Streets TALK OF A NEW TIE BARN HERE Club to Co-Operate wlthj G. A. R., S. of V. and W. R. C. for Proper Ob servance of Memorinl Day. At the meeting of the commercial flub held last Friday evening a reso lution was passed requesting that the oily council abolish the hitching posts en the paved streets and that all of llie present hitching posts be removed before the streets are paved. The hitching post problem has been con fronting Denison for some time and everyone seems glad that the matter has finally been settled. The busi ness men present 'at the Friday eve ning meeting were not in favor of re moving the posts from the streets to be paved unless arrangements were made for other posts on nearby streets so that the farmers coming to Deni son need not be inconvenienced but tiiis matter was easily disposed of when it was announced that Mr. P. T. Flynn was contemplating the erection of a tie barn on his lots just east of the Herman Methodist church. How ever, hitching posts will be located on side streets for use until the new tie barn is erected. It is a well known fact that the hitching post is a tiling of the past and even many of the smallest towns in the state have abolished this evil. It is said that Manning is without hitching posts and the people driving to that town are more then glad to put their teams in a tie barn where a nominal charge is made for their care. We do not know of a town in the state that has hitching posts on paved streets. Prof. Jacob Johnson, of the high school faculty addressed the members or the club and told tiie purpose of holding an annual field meet in Deni son and asked that the commercial club donate something toward purchas ing a silver loving cup and medals lor the winners. The members of the club were so impressed with the plan that they voted to donate $25 for the trophies. The matter of observance of Me morial day was brought up for dis cussion and those present were of the opinion that the business men should assist in every way possible to honor the veterans of the civil war. The eh'b has decided to make an effort to have every business house in tiic I city close at noon on Memorial Day so that business men and clerks may attend tiie services at the cemetery. Heretofore it. has been the custom to hold services at the cemetery in the forenoon and in tiie afternoon a pro gram lias been carried out at tiie opera house. This year there are to be no exercises in tiie forenoon, but tiie en tire afternoon will be devoted to the observance of the day. Clement J. Welch, chairman of tiie civic committee, who had charge of clean-up week made a report on the campaign which was of so much val ue to Denison. Tiie reading of this re port brought a general discussion of 'on ditions in the business district and the club finally recommended that tiie city council take some action to have ash boxes, signs and other unsightly relics of antiquity removed from tiie business streets. Some few weeks ago an effort was made by the commercial club to have the train service on the lloyer Valley branch of the Northwestern restored as well as to have No. 13, the Hawke.vo express going west on the main line at 10:05 p. m.. stop at Dow City. Mr. Lyon, the president of the club, who sent in the petition to the proper offi cials of the road, reported that there were no hopes of having either request granted. The superintendent of the I Sioux City division reported that the trains which were taken off of thei Boyer Valley branch had been operated I at a loss and that the receipts from these two trains had not been enough to pay tiie engineer and fireman. The superintendent of the Boone division visited Denison recently and stated that No. 18, has such a fast schedule that it would be out of the question to have it make another stop not already scheduled. There is. however, some liklihood that a through train will be put on in the near future from Deni son to Sioux City which will leave Denison shortly after S:00 o'clock and will return in the evening. This train is ow made up at Carroll and runs via Wall Lake to Sioux City, returning in the evening. By running this train out of Denison the service here would be partially restored and would give Denison a Sunday train to Lake View, something that has been needed tor a long time. Nothing definite lias been decided, however, in regard to this service as it' will have to come through tiie gen eral olliees at Sioux City, but we are told the superintendent of the Sioux City division has recommended the change and there is everv reason to believe that it will be forthcoming. The troubadours, accompanied oy Laska 151ray, reader, who appeared in concert at the chapel of the Denison Normal and Business college Wednes day evening, were greeted by a good pized audience and rendered a pleas ing and entertaining program.

Dr. W. C. Wilcox, of the Iowa State all of tiie counties of the state are put to tiie same expense as this county in this one department there is no won der that the people complain of the cost of running the county govern ment. On last Saturday Auditor P. J. Portz paid out $233 alone for gopher bounties, the claws being turned in during the day. During the past week $112 has been paid over to residents of this county for wolf scalps. It would seem that the supply of wolves land gophers would soon run out at the rate they are being turned in to the county for bounties, but each year it seems to cost the county more than the year previous. Auditor Portz esti mates that it costs Crawford county in the neighborhood of $3,000 annually for the Soulier bounties. Tiie following bounties for wolf scalps were paid out by Auditor Portz during the past week: May 5th. Ira Brundidge, of Union township, four cub wolf scalps. $10. May 6tli. David Clark, of Union township, five cub wolf scalps, $20. May Stii. N. Kttleman, of Boyer town ship. five cub wolf scalps. $20.

FUNERAL TO BE HELD TOMORROW Lived on Farm in Hanother Township N for Almost Thirty Years—Leaves Widow and Seven Children Air. Jurgen Peterson one of tho most prominent German citizens this community, died at his home on Treniont street Monday morning, tiie result of a stroke of apoplexy. Mr. Peterson arose seemingly in his usual good health, but while eating break fast he suffered the stroke and passed away before a physician could be sum moned.

In 1870 he came to America, locating in Cliu ton county, Iown wiiere he lived fbr seven years. He moved to Crawford county in 1877 and in that year was united in marriage to Miss Adeline Lorenzen. This union was blessed with eleven children, seven of whom are left to mourn the death of their fath er namely: Asmus, .Peter, Christ. Aug ust. Etnil, Amelia and Marie. In addi tion to his wife and children he leaves two brothers, Asmus Peterson, resid ing in Minnesota, and Carl Peterson, who is serving in the United States army: two sisters. Mrs. Alma Olson, a resident of Wall Lake, and Mrs. Ma rie Brenner living in Russia. Mr. Peterson lived on a farm in Hanover township for almost forty years, at the end of which time by his thrift and industry he had accumulat ed enough to retire from active work and earlier in the year had purchased the home on Tremont street where he had expected to spend the declining years of his life in happiness with his tamily. He was an upright, industri ous man. held in high esteem by every one in the community and his sudden death was sorely felt by his many friends.
