VOL. 52 4000 ATTEND DEMONSTRATION Last Friday and Saturday Big Days at Denison Bottling Works When Visitors were Entertained OTHER FIRMS REPRESENTED Bottling Works One of Denison's Big Institutions and l':he Business is Gradually Expanding •Over four thousand people attended the demonstration held Friday and Saturday at the Denison bottling works plant on South Main street, and all are loud in their praise of the interesting displays and the hospital ity of Mr. James Mitchell, the propri etor. For several weeks Mr. Mitchell has been arranging for this demon stration and it was no small task to get in touch with the firms from whom he purchases gpods aud arranga to liavo them on hand. Many of those who attended the demOnsl ratipn had never visited the big pluftt and of course were" surprised at its magnitude. Every one was showji. the bottling department where soft drinks of all kinds are manufac tit. ed. Machinery representing sever al thousand dollars was demonstrated to the people and all followed closely the different operations from washing the bottles until they are filled with soft drinks and packed in cases. Af ter seeing how the bottles are washed no one fears that a particle of foreign matter is sent out In them. A big machine handles hundreds of bottles every hour and here the bottles are immersed in a strong solution which removes all dirt. From this machine they are dumped into fresh water and automatically carried to another wash ing machine where they are brushed both inside and out with fresh water. Employees of the plant explained the process of filling the bottles with the various soda waters and how the metal tops are fastened. One of the most interesting pieces of machinery is the labeling machine which" places the labels on the bottles. This machine is almost human i^ its action and at tracted a large crowd. Each guest upon entering the build ing was invited to sample drinks made Of syrupi Mr. Lewis and Mr. Sacks hju| of tfrla booth and they *. /MriXing the- various ..nlflied by V. Baroorka, the jeweler, wS^liad^onfl of fine Edison talk ing machines there. After looking over the bottling de partment the giiests were taken up stairs In the elevator, where the dem onstration booths were arranged. The entire second floor is devoted to the •wholesale department of the bottling g= 1 IIIIII.

One of the interesting booths was iliat of the Welch Grape Juice com pany. They served samples of this popular drink to all who desired. At another booth Mr. F. O. Bailey, of Marshalltown, who is the propriet or of a factory manufacturing toppings for sundaes, served the guests with ice cream with any particular topping they cared for. Alfalfene, a drink manufactured from alfalfa, attracted considerable at tention. Pro. C. H. Penrith demonstrat ed this drink and told how it was manufactured. Mr. I.ehr was in charge of the Bish op-Babcock booth, he!.'9 electric heat ers and urns were displayed and demonstrated. The Colfax water booth attracted a great many people and here Mr. Wal dron of the Grand hotel, gave out sam ples of this popular drinking water. Orange ade and orange julip were served by Blanch Lorenzen and proved one of the most popular drinks at the demonstration. The champagne1 booth attracted con siderable attention especially among the men who enjoy the extra dry vint age. Here Cascade ginger ale was served and souvenirs were given each visitor in the shape of bottle openers. Charles Richards was in charge of the cherry blossom booth and he serv ed gallons of this appetizing drink. The booths of the Doud Milling com pany, Economy meat market and city of Denison were all located in the south room on the second floor and we can safely say it was the most pop ular section of the demonstration. The city of Denison had the Hughes elec tric stoves in their booth and Mr. W. P. Hover and Mr. \V. D. Luney ex plained them to the ladies. Miss Gene Miller, instructor of domestic science, and Mrs. John Silletto, with a corps of able assistants, baked baking pow der biscuits and served hot roast beef. iDelicious coffee was served, being Royal H, which is sold in Denison by' the Economy meat market. The roast beef was also furnished by this mar ket. The flour used for the biscuits was Fidelity, the product of the Doud Milling company, which has been so popular with tlie women of Denison for the past few years. Mrs. H. L. Fitch was in charge of the milling company's booth and told of the success which others are having with this brand of flour. The first day 1330 biscuits were served and on the last day over 1600. A.

IOWA IS TO FURNISH $150,000.00 Suggestions for a County Organization —Crawford County is Much Interested in the Work Air. C. L. Voss has been made chair man for Crawford county of the War Work committee of the Y. M. C. A. The Y. M. A. lias started out to raise a $3,000,000 national -fund for the army Y. M. C. A. and it has called upon Iowa to furnish $150,000 of this amount. Crawford county is expected to raise $2,500 of this fund. Crawford county should do its part and an or ganization should be perfected at once and steps taken to raise our allotment. In 1916 the Iowa state committee raised funds and cared for the army work at Brownsville, Texas. It erect ed and equipped a splendid "Y" build ing 40x120 feet which was pronounced "The Best Thing in the Camp." The army Y. M. C. A. provides: Buildings for social center. Piano Victrola. Stationery for men to write home. Newspapers, books and games. Moving pictures, entertainments of all sorts. Lectures, educational classes, relig ious meetings. Clean living campaigns, personal in terviews. Visits to sick, etc. We believe the public spirited citi izens of Crawford county will be in terested in this good work and an ef fort should be made to raise our allot ment. Somewhere in the United States there will be 1000 secretaries and 200 "Y" buildings to serve over a million men in the United States army and navy. It is a good work and one which merits the financial support of all. Below we print suggestions for a county organization: 1. Get together a representative group of business and professional men at county seat or largest city. Have some one familiar with the Y, M. C. A. work state the case, showing the need of work with the soldiers. Give opportunity, tot jWiTrra'tiiifYi ill** mww'Miw ««n« 1 questions, etc. thirteen men who will promote a coun ty wide campaign. Select a chairman, secretary and treasurer. Name an ex ecutive committee of five men. the officers to be ex-offlclo members of this committee. 3.

A. and about the campaign in the county. The pub licity committee should SPIH! letters to 200 to 300 leading men, urging the need and asking them to be ready to respond on a certain day. (b) Church committee to see that on a certain Sunday speakers go to ev ery church in the county and present at the morning service the needs of the work and call attention to the cam paign. 4. The executive committee should at the outset get a local committee in each town or rural community to aid in canvass iij their section of the coun ty. 5, Take a week to ten days for pub-| I licity. Follow by a one day campaign with fifteen to twenty live te:ims of two men each, who will devote a day fo the canvass ffr funds. Names of men able to give should be listed by the executive and local committees and divided among the different teams. To save expense and trouble in col lection secure cash payment wherever possible. Suggestion: Before the day of cam paign for funds if executive committee will secure a few leading subscriptions of $25 to $100 each, it will give mo mentum to the campaign. In every county there should bf several men who will give $100 each. One or two larce subscriptions encourage men of modes^ means to put in their $5 and $10 each. Note: In 1916, for the regular Y. M. C. A. "State Work" budget, l'orty five men gave from, $100 to $250 each. One man gave $500. Reasonably we may expect that this.year, raising five times as much money, many more men will give $100 to -250 or -10Q0 each.

MORE WOLVES CAPTURED Auditor Portz Pays Ouft $67.00 in Bounties Past Week—Four Badg ers Brought in Monday. The spring crop of wolves continues to find its way to the court house and during the past week Auditor Portz paid out $67.00 in bounties. Judging from the number of scalps turned in this spring the crop in Crawford coun ty is abundant. With bounties of $20 for adults and $4 for cubs it is well worth while to hunt these animals which cause considerable loss to the farmers during the year. H. P. Hansen, of Morgan township, brought in four cub badger scalps on Monday of this week. Mr. Hansen had never seen any badgers and sup posed they pere cub wolves when he found them in a nest on his farm. Badgers are not common in this lo cality and the scalps were viewed with considerable interest by the court house boys. No bounty is paid by the state for these animals. Those who brought in wolf scalps during the past week were: May 2d, J. T. Hockett, Jr.. of Iowa township, four cubs, $16.00 May 5, Alvin Carl son, of Soldier township, two adults, $40.00 May 8th, Roy Kropf, of Stock holm township, three cubs, $12.00. NEW PASTOR HAS ARRIVED Rev. Robt. Karr, New Presbyterian Pastor. Occupied Pulpit Sunday— Congregation Pleased Rev. Robert Karr. of Omaha, new pastor of the Presbyterian church in this city, filled the pulpit on Sunday. Rev. and Mrs. Karr moved their house hold goods to Denison last week and are now nicely settled in the manse just west of the church. The manse has been completely renovated, the interior having been redecorated and the woodwork varnishel. The exteri or of the building is now being painted. Members of the Presbyterian church are more than pleased with the new pastor and under his leadership look for an increased membership. Rev. Karr only recently finished his work in college and before accepting the pastorate here had received several calls to go elsewhere. He was invit ed to Los Angeles to preach there, but after looking over the field decid ed that Denison afforded better oppor tunity for him than did the west. He Is a man of middle age with a pleas ing personality aud already has made many -warm.friends-In the. community. We welcome Rev. and Mrs. Karr to the community.

They Retake Freanoy City and the Contiguous Wood—Two Separ ate Dashes Were Made SECOND THRUST IS SUCCESSFUL Reinforced by Fresh Divialona, the Onrushing Teutona Penetrate the Left Wing of Defenders After five days of extraordinarily hard fighting between the Canadians and the Germans the little village of Fresnoy, lying southeast of Lens, and the adjacent wood, are again' in Ger man hands. In the retaking of these positions, where the Canadians had stood for days holding the most advanced sal ient in the ''British line projecting to ward Douai, the Germans evidently paid a terrible price. Preceded by a" heavy artillery fire in which asphyxi ating gas shells also were used in large. numbers, the counter attack was., launched in the early morning. The machine gun and rifle fire of' the defenders met the Germans as they threw themselves forward, but'-. they would not be denied and finally penetrated the trenches northeast of the village and even entered the out skirts of the village itself. Their ten ure of the position, however, was short. lived, for the Canadians soon after ward returned to the fray, drove out the Germans and again held full sway.,' Reforming later and reinforced by two fresh divisions, the Germans again made a bid for victory along the en tire front before the village and wood. The right wing of the defenders held steadfastly and inflicted heavy losses on the Germans. The left wing, how-. ever, notwithstanding Its stubborn re sistance, was compelled to give ground'-' and to evacuate the village and wood,, leaving them in the hands of the Ger mans. Berlin reports that 200 prison ers and six machine guns fell into the hands of the Germans. There has been a continuation of the violent fighting southward in t)ie Bullecourt and Roeux sectors, but no notable change in positions have been reported. \,v Farm impiemeut Saturday Specials Turkish Towel Special: Large.size towel of good quality.
