Blume, Vice President: Dan Fink, Secretary Theo. Witt, ^Treasurer —Henry Wallace Speaks One of the best farmers gatherings ever assembled in Crawford county was held last Thursday at the Crawford County Farm Bureau annual meeting. Over two hundred farmers from all parts of the county met for the morn ing and afternoon program which had been arranged. The interest shown by the men present, together with the prominence of the speakers, is evidence of the growing strength and possibili ties of the farm bureau. The morning session was opened with a short talk by Jacob Weiss. Mr. Weiss told of the growth of the farm bureau during its first two years. Mr. Weiss has been president of the organization since its beginning and through his ef forts and the cooperation of the direct ors, the farm bureau has grown from a 200 membership until now it has over 1200 of the most prominent' and pro gressive Crawford county farmers on its membership roll. Committee reports- given by Jas. D. Fleming and. Dan Fink showed the financial standing and the membership of the organization Jan. 1, 1920, Other speakers at the morning ses sion were Theo. Blume who gave a re port of the farm bureau federation meeting held in Des Moines January 8th and 9th, and explained the relation ship of the farmers union and the farm bureau. County Agent Quist gave a re port of the farm bureau work for 1920, explaining the county agent's part in the organization and the members' part. The afternoon session opened by a three reel picture showing the reclama tion of the dry land areas. The pic tures were educational and brought out clearly what irrigation and modern ma chinery can do for a desert country. The election of officers preceeded the main speakers of the afternoon pro gram. Jas. D. Fleming, a progressive farmer and stockman of Stockholm township, was elected president. Mr. Fleming has been an active farm bu reau man since its organization. He has long been a booster of the Corn Belt Meat Producers association and Small Grain association. There is no man in the country better fitted to head the farm bureau than Mr. Fleming. Other officers elected were Theo. C. Blume, vice-president: Dan "Fink, sec retary and Theo. Witt, treasurer. The need for a constructive farmers' organization rather than the battles of the Corn Belt Meet Producers, was the subject of He,nry C. Wallace's address. Mr. Wallace, whose lifetime has been spent investigating and fighting the farmers' battles, told of what the Com Belt Meet Producers had accomplished for the shippers, yet how the farmers still lacked strength to acomplish the 1 Section Two Hats for between-season wear—these an the hats that are selling now. Mil linery establishments used to present hats for winter to be followed, after a season of quiet, by hats for spring, and let it go at that, but now, by way of variety, we are favored with hats for between times. Mostly these hats are small or medium sized, chic affairs for any clime and any weather. They do* not belong either to winter or sum mer but fit in against a background of snow or of sunny skies. A great many between-season hats are on display just now and satin, as material for making them, appears to have no rival within speaking dis tance of It unless it is the all-ribbon jjat They are the aristocratic first cousins of the satin hat and many of them are made of satin ribbons also considerable fine workmanship is in volved in tlielr making and nearly al ways the ribbons used are narrow. There are also certain braids and even straws of brilliant surface that belong to the interval between winter and spring. Satin is featured In the group of three hats shown above, although the uppermost hat appears to be faced with velvet. It takes advantage of the pi»g for feather fringes and uses a big problems ahead. He predicted big things for the farm bureau federation if they followed the platform they have already adopted, namely that of con structive work. Mr. Wallace indorsed the co-operative marketing of farm products. Hon. E. C. Cunningham told of what the farm bureau federation has ac complished and will do. He explained the investigation work being carried on at this time, emphasizing the three most important, the railroads, the in-, come tax and the investigation of the farmers terminal elevator system in Canada. Constructive farmers organizations is here in the form of the farm bureau and the farm bureau federation, declar ed Mr. Cunningham, but not even that organization can accomplish things if they attempt to tear down those things the public has built. Organizations torn develop and build up the things for which they are founded, but when they over step their rights they fall. Mr. Cunningham cited the coal strike as an example of organization strength, yet its failure to accomplish the real things set out to do, because trio meth od and time of striking, created public sentiment against them. The farm bureau has the respe^ and the sen timent of* the public. Wc, Too, Have Been Foolish. Chicago Tribune: The American who gets flustered or panic striken because the law of cause and effect is operating in Euorpe with a drastic logic is both weak and foolish. Americans have no reason to fear the present or the future if they will think of the unshaken rock on which we stand and go quietly to de velop the resources and opportunities before them. Europe after five years of insane destruction, aggravated by the blind and self destroying revenges of this unhappy false peace, by foolish self indulgence, by weak postponement of corrective restiyiints, cannot escape a terrible payment. To what extent we can help no man can now predict. But we, too have been foolish. We have indulged in extravagance. We have permitted inflation when we should have been conserving our fi nancial strength and directing our re sources into the most productive chan nels. We shall have to pay for this, but if we show good sense we can pay Without suffering, we can get easily and quickly on better ground, and we can go foreward confidently to a healthier and more lasting prosperity. We need to check our careless spend ing and our uncareful expansions, and we shall check them. 6 Waterloo Times-Tribune: If months are to be consumed in the foreign rela tions committee again: if the treaty is to have unlimited debate in the senate if it is to be the only piece of business bo fore the senate until next June, what is to be the state of 'the con vention? Where is the party record to be? What is there to be on hand that can be "pointed to with pride?" Des Moines Register: This year lock jaw would be the greatest affliction that could befall a politician. Perry Chief: Mr. Cummins may not recognize his child when it finally gets to the senate floor, but it will have his name just the same. For Demiseason Wear fringe of glycerined ostrich to edge its top crown and brim, which is very wide. This Is an all-black model—a brilliant hat in which on* can feel at home anywhere. At the center of the picture likSb xJ?' a wide- brimmed Breton sailor has a collar and bow of ribbon for trimming—the simplest treatment possible. But the brim is very handsomely faced with very narrow braid'sewed on edge lo the satin foundation, very nearly cov ering it. This is an example of fine workmanship and a hat of great dis tinction. A turban of satin with soft top cro\Vn finishes the group. The satin forms a shirred band about the shape and a very narrow ribbon, with tinsel edge is tied about it with a flat bow at the front. A fold of angora cloth binds the brim edge. This model Is new and chic—one caflnot think of a location, wltliln reach, that it would seem out of place In. There Is a material called cellophane that Is brilliant and weather resisting and looks much like slipper straw that must be reckoned with. wmm* NISHNABOTNY ITEMS Born to Mr. and Mrs. Ed McCaffery on Tuesday, February 3d, a son.

The Burden of Accidents Why is it that with all the safety ap pliances and safety first talk there were 80,000 killed and 2QO.OOO injured in acci dents in this country last year? One human characteristic that makes accidents fore frequent is a certain ten dency to recklessness when a group of men get together. Most men are inclin ed to be rather careful when by them selves. But when doing anythiffg with^sorely a £roup of others they seem ashamfcd to show fear or exercise precautions. Factory managers should take the ut most pains to explain all the dangers of their\machinery to workers, particularly to those who do not speak English. One strong reason for instruction of aliens in factories is that it will help reduce the accident cases and the burden of compensation payments. These acci dents not merely cause family want and suffering but they add to the cost of production and tax every resident of the city and everywhere else. Waterloo.

SECRET SERVICE HEN iT LOGAN Kuntor of Wholesale Arrests to low Alleged Theft of Wine From Cars. *$» Fol- SCORES OF MEN ARE IMPLICATED The Wine Being Caried Away in Buck ets, Milk Cans, Dish I'ans, Etc.—A Wild Orgy All Night. Logan, la., Feb. 7.—Several United States government agents, railroad secret service men and county officials are still working upon the wine steal ing case which has developed into a county scandal. It appears that when-the sheriff dis covered what was going on and that scores of men and boys were carrying the 'wine away in buckets, milk cans, dish pans, etc., he attempted to stop them, but was powerles and contented himself with taking the names of all engaged in the alleged wholesale theft. The two tank cars tilled with wine which were being shipped from Cali fornia to Now York, in a string of freight cars which had been set out on a side track because of bad order, car. The wine cars were separated by other care and this fact made it im possible for the officers to handle the crowd. It is said that all through the night Wednesday there was a hurrying of autos from all parts of the county to wards Logan as' word of the wine orgy spread rapidly. It is said that about fifty from Missouri Valley alone .came down. The wine cars were being trans ferred under government seal and bond, and if it is proven that the seal was broken, as it is alleged, or_that the wine was stolen from the cars a most serious charge will lie against the of' fenders. The claim is made that the cars de veloped a leak and that the celebrants were merely engaged in saving the liquor from being absorbed by the ground. This is denied by the author! ties. Remedying the Farmer's Problems Chicago Daily News: The case of the farmer should receive the earnest attention of statesman and men of or ganizing ability. A settlement of the railroad question will help the farmer. Indirectly a proper revison of the re venue law will help him. Good roads will benefit him. So would elimina tion of superfluous middlemen by co operative markets and stores, but pro gress in that direction is slow. Cert ainly the parcel pijst should be used more extensively to establish more di rect contact between producer and con sumer. Immigration should be wise ly directed to increase the supply of efficient farm labor. There are no easy sovereign remedies to offer the farmer, and he knows it. But he has a right to complain if he feels that his interests are not receiving-the consid eration they deserve, or that he is sac rificed to noisier and more belligrent groups. Housecleaning deeded at Wasliinglon. JJew York Times: The weeding out of superfluous employes is, not ncum bent upon private business' alone. The business of the national government needs to 'lie subjected to the same process. Washington and the government service generally swarms with unnecessary employes. The ad ditional work imposed b£ the war ras lost its volume. The work has been deflated, but there has been no defla tion of the payroll. Once give a man or "woman a chair In thd government olflqe, and dislodgement is hard. Yet the government has no money to waste in the pay of useless employes. It is a double economy to end their ser vice money will lie saved to the tax payers and so many more persons re leased for productive labor, if they are Capable of it. Mt. Vernon Hawkeye: The American people have not fully made up their minds as to whether they are being robbed, by the sugar trust, but most of them Have a suspicion that such is the case. GIiddej^Gn).phie: The Homestead is devoting a lot of spate and a lot of "extra editions"to fighting Gov. Har ding, former bosom friend of Jim Pierce. Pierce knows a£ well as anyone that Harding is politically dead. Why then should he devote so much energy to kicking him still farther into the grave? Marshalltown Times-Republican: The proposed substitute for the anti-strike provision in the Cummins biH is not a substitute at all, but a rather cowardly subterfuge, Si' •i'% It. feattV liH—fii BUCK GROVE ITEMS Once more we are called upon to mourn the death of one of our oldest citizens of this vicinity, that of Mrs. Tom Kane, which occurred at the fam ily home northwest of Buck Grove, on Wednesday morning, February 4th. She suffered with a complication of diseases but heart trouble was the direct cause of her demise. Her death came as a great shock to this community as she was only ill three days. Bridget Cos tello was born in County Clare, Ireland, in the year 1850. In 1871 she was mar ried to Thomas Kane and a few years later came with her family to America. They first settled in Clinton county, Iowa, but in 1882 they moved to Craw ford county and for thirty-eight years she has lived almost continuously near Buck Grove. She was the mother of ten children, four of whom survive, one son, Denison, and three daughters, Lucy, Ella and Anna, all of whom were at her bedside when the end came. Her husband also preceded her to the great beyond nine years ago. Mrs. Kane was a devout member of the Catholic church all her life and was prepared for death by Father Schleir, receiving the last rites Tuesday afternoon before she ifted." All trhaV right can be truthfully said of he?, and her cheerful smile and pleasant greeting Will be greatly missed by all her many friends. She was an exceptionally de voted mother and seemed to live only for her children, who in turn loved her deeply and sincerely, and are all heart broken over their great loss and have the sympathy of all in this great be reavement. The funeral services were held in St. Joseph's church here, Rev. Father, Schleir officiating. He preach ed a very consoling sermon, carrying balm to the stricken hearts. The re mains were followed to Denison by many friends who braved the inclem ency of the weather to testify their re spect and see the body laid beside her husband in the Denison cemetery.

The wide collar is gathered In at the neck and turns over. The cuffs, collar and bottom of the skirt are embel lished with large disks, about the stee of a silver dollar, which appear to be made of French knots in silk floss, set thickly together. The body blouses considerably and the entire design is novet and chic. Any of the soft coatings will serve for coats like those shown here, the velours, bolivias, silver tones, and similar weaves that have distinguished this season's wraps make garments that are both practical and stylish. ...M'S i.
