LV TBE EARN TOUR WAS BIG SUCCESS Tuesday Last a Big Day for Members of Crawford County Pure Bred Sow and'Llttcr Club. SO BOYS AND GIRLS IN TOl Accompanied by Their Parent*. The Boys and tiirls Visit Club Members Homes—Picnic Dinner. Tuesday, June 22d was a big day for the members of the Crawford County Pure Bred Sow and Litter Club when thirty of the boys and girls, together with their parents, made a l'arm tour to see the kind of pigs the different boys and girls are raising. Twelve care each carrying five people, made the full seventy mile trip which includ ed stops at eight places. The crowd assembled at the Vail sale pavilion as had been previously ar ranged, and at 9:30, the caravan started for the J. K. Bremner farm south of Vail. At this place there was a litter of nine growthy Hampshire pigs, the property of iroyn Bremner. That the pigs had received the best of care and feed was easily seen. Prof. E. Li Quaife, of Ames, who was chief spokesman on the trip gave a brief talk on hog feeding and management, using Iroyn's pigs as examples. Prof. Quaife emphasized size, conformation, and quality as important in the make up of the desirable type of hogs. The breeders are having to raise the hogs which the market demands, said Prof. Quaife, and it is the hog with meat qualities rather than the lard hog that Is in demand. From the Bremner farm, the crowd drove to J. S. Brogan's where they in spected Raymond Brogan's pure bred Duroc Jerseys. There were six thrifty pigs in this litter, all well up on their feet and very uniform. Here too, an ideal place had bonn provided for the pigs. Mr. G. B. McAndrews, of Vail used Raymonds Durocs in explaining the modern Duroc Jersey type. Leaving the Brogan farm, the route led to the Jno. Kiniry farm where the club member is a girl. Here too, was a Duroc Jersey litter owned by Maisy Kiniry. Four of this litter were real show pigs, the kind eligible for show ing at the state fair. The next litter In spected were those owned by Warren Chamberlain, of Vail. WJarren is the youngest member in the club, and the boy working under the greatest handi cap, since he is raising his hogs in town. Warren is an enthusiastic hog raiser. He is ihe kind of a boy who .if he stays with the hog game, will BMke a. success of it. 7 Walfoh Rundlett'a litter of ten hus ky Chester Whites, were the last pigs looked at before lunch. The uniformi ty arid size of such a large litter was the talk Of the day. Walton has show prospects in his litter and the breeders on the trip claimed that Walton will make competition for such breeders as the Ray Brown type in the show ring. The big picnic dinner was enjoyed on the Amos Peterson lawn northwest of Denison. To quench the thirst of the travelers, Mrs. Peterson provided the lemonade. During the noon hour, Supt. F. N. Olry talked to the club members emphasizing the educational value of club work. Supt. Olry wjis in favor of the country boys and girls re ceiving the same education us their city cousins, and brought out how con solidated schools and club work fur nished practical education for the coun try children. A featuro of the noon hour was the tug of war. Clifford Richardson and tho oldest Peterson boy chose up sides. The sides were evenly matched and for live minutes the marker on the rope moved neither way. Joe Bauman. coaching Peterson's side, got that crew to working together letter than George Buchanan could conch Richardson's end, so Peterson and his mates won the contest. Several races were also run and in these, the contest was close. Edward and John Petersen's litter of Spotted Poland Chinas attracted much attention, because of the size and uni formity of the pigs. There are four pigs in each litter, and they will JPIV MO I S3 MIOW Ih: shown at the state fair this fall. The Petersen boys bought the mothers of their pigs from the A. I. Siegner herd north of Vail. If the type of all the hogs Mr. Seigner sells compare to those the Petersen boys bought, he can feel that ho is establishing a real breed of hogs in the country. From the Amos Petersen farm, the party drove to the Wm. Carstens farm south of Buck Grove. Mr. Carstens has three boys, and each has a Poland China litter. The boys, Emil, Wilbert, and Alfred seerp to have a purebred sow and litter contest among them selves. One of the litters contain six in number, the second seven, and the third, eight. To decide which litter is best, or which one of the boys is rais ing the best Poland Chinas, it would require the services of an expert judge. The boys purchased their sows from A. J. Barrow & Son of Manilla, who breeds the large stretchy type of Polands, so popular today. At the Carstens farm, Prof. E. Ij. Quaife discussed in detail the feeding of hogs, judgir.g and the fitting of hogs for the show ring. The keynote of his feeding suggestions were to keep the hogs growing instead of trying to make them fat. Pigs, too, jinust be exercised if they are to be shown, for It is exercise which gives the hogs strength. Raymond Bauman's litter of Hamp shires were the last to be visited. Ray mond is a Hampshire booster in spite of the fact that his father and brother favor the Durocs. County Agent Quist, in summarizing the trip, stated that the only disagree able part of the day was the fact that the crowd did not have time to inspect everyone of the club members pigs. The weather' was good, regardless of tho light shower in the afternoon, and the club members were interested throughout the day. The parents, too, who joined In the trip, were Interested, not only in the pigs but also interested in the attitude of the boys and girls toward this work. Parents who question the value of the boys and girls club work should study over the project, visit some of the parents who have children in the pig club this year and then decide themselves if club work will not be a big factor in keeping the boys and girls better interested in farm life. There will le a county show of all the pig club litters some time this fall says County Agent Quist. and ther. everybody in the county,will bo invit ed to see what thirty-six Crawford county boys and girls have been doing in the hog raising game this year. THREE PERCENT ON SALES Competent business experts lay down the rule that a business- may well ap propriate 3 per ccnt on its gross sales for advertising. Many tests of a 3 per cent advertising outlay have resulted in increasing business '3 1-3 per cent. To many people 3 per cent will seem a rather small amount for a business to spend to make itself known and to communicate its offerings to the pub lic. Many concerns spend a good deal more than that, and find it pays, and that they could not exist without it. Publicity is reckoned as one of the essential expenses of the up to date business. It no more expects to avoid it than to avoid insurance on its stock or cost of clerk hire or rent. You can not sell goods unless the people know what you have to offer, and 3 per cent seems a moderate tax fo- getting that information to the public. REPUBLICANS TO MEET JULY THIRD 1'nder the Law the Republicans of Crawford County Will Meet in Convention in Denison July 3 SELECT TWO SETS DELEGATES Delegates to the State Convention at Des Moines to be Selected Also Delegates to Judicial Convention The Republican county convention under the law. will convene in Denison on Saturday, July 3, at 11 o'clock, A. M. This convention is called to elect delegates to the state convention and to the judicial convention both of which will meet in the near future. The state convention at Des Moines will have the adoption of a platform and the election of those officers who failed to secure the required 35 per cent ma jority at the June primaries. The ju dicial convention will meet in Cedar Rapids to nominate candidates for the supreme bench. The county convention of July 3d, will also transact such other business as may rightfully come before it, and the delegates elected at the primaries to 'attend this jcouvention should beqr in mlntl tijat the convention convenes at il o'clock in the forenoon. If they are promptly on hand so that the con vention can be called at that hour, it may be possible that an early adjourn ment can be had. We trust every del egate elected will find time to attend the convention, as there must be a majority represented in the convention in order that business be transacted. Following the convention there will be a meeting of the Republican county central committee, and those who make up this committee should be on hand for the formal organization. The suc cess of the coming campaign and of Crawford county's part in electing tho next president of this country depends upon a good live central committee. Crawford county will be entitled to eight delegates to the state, convention at Des Moines and to eight to the Ju dicial convention at Cedar Rapids. The dates for these conventions have not been set. but they will be early in July.

Watching Parachute. ARACHITE DROPS 3,700 FEET Aeroplane Exhibitions Saturday After noon and Evening Prove Interest' ing to Many Spectators. Several hundred people witnessed the most spectacular stunt over shown in Denison Saturday evening, when Art Bluto made a parachute leap from an aeroplane piloted by Andy Nielsen, the flying parson, as the plane circled above the city at an altitude of 2,700 feet. Merchants of Denison subscrib ed the amount of money necessary for the exhibition but-it is to be regretted that the affair was not better advertis ed so more people might have witness ed the event for it was well worth a trip of many miles to see. On Thursday last, Mr. Nielsen, to gether, with his mechanic. L. 1). Miller, and Mr, Bluto flew to Denison from Council Bluffs and landed in the Ale Henry pasture southwest of the city. They called upon John Shaw Van, se cretary of the commercial club and through him made arrangements for the exhibition. Merchants of Denison subscribed the amount of money nec essary for the thrilling stunt and hand bills were posted to advertise it. The rain of Saturday morning put the roads in such condition that people from any great distance could not drive to Deni son. Saturday afternoon Mr. Nielsen gave an exhibition flight and put the plane through all the stunt flights, including the tail spin, side-slip, barrel roll, etc. At seven o'clock in the evening, the machine again rose from the McHenry farm and circled over Denison. The wind was blowing a perfect gale esti mated by Mr. Nielsen as one hundred miles an hour. He found it difficult to take much of an altitude but decided that he would be able to climb Into tho sky to a sufficient height to permit Bluto to make his leap. He again landed at the McHenry farm after a series of stunts and the parachute was tied to the plane. Tho aeroplane reached an altitude of 2,700 feet over north Denison and while it appeared to be stationary in the sky the plane was seen to dip its nose and Bluto jumped into space. It was in deod a thrilling sight to see the mun fall like a rocket for a distance of al most three hundred feet before the par achuto finally opened up and he sailed Off to the north, driven by, the hjgh wind, .yyhile the plane circled rbtrtit Ultn. Never'before have the people of this community witnessed such a sight and everyone agreed that it was more thrilling than the parachute leaps from buloons which were so common a few years ago. Bluto landed a mile north of the Il linois Central depot on what is known as the John Hammer farm. He struck a thorn apple tree but fortunately was uninjured. A representative of the Review interviewed Mr. Bluto in the evening and reecived an interesting ac count of the jump. Bluto stated that the jump was made under adverse con ditions on nccount of the high wind. When the plane had reached the 2,700 foot altitude, it was evident to both himself and Nielsen that it would be impossible for them to go higher. He climlied out of the pit and stood on a brace on the lower plane and gave Nielsen a nod. the signal to dip the noBe Of the plane that he might make the Jump and clear the plane.

At the state meeting of the osteo paths among the interesting discus sions was that led by Dr. J. S. Olsen of Des Moines, who discussed the effects of high heeled shoes upon the health of women.

Bluto stated that the best jumps are made from an altitude o£ six or seven ''thousand feet when the plane from the ground appears but a speck in the sky and observers do not see him leave the plane and it is not until the parachute fully opens that he is seen, Bluto, who is about thirty five years of age, has served in the navy and be fore going into aeroplane leaps. ga\e exhibitions with baloons. In speaking of experiences, he told of an exhibition he made this spring out in Nebraska when he made the leap at an altitude I pim pin ic rii ut of seven thousand feet, but the cord |1 that held the parachute to the plane failed to break and held him suspended there in mid air until the plane had lost about two thousand feet of its altitude. By jumping up and down he was able to break the cord and suc ceeded in making the drop to the ground. The parachute is packed in a neat bundle and fastened to the upper plane by a light cord. Ropos from the para chute are attached to a harness and this Bluto fastens about him. He states .u ,, th that everything depends on thi man- ner in which the chute is packed and he himself attends to folding it up. Papers are used between each fold so that when it is released the ropes I i„ „„,i th will not tagle and the air bi let qlnall into the parachute. Bluto is absolutely fearless and he thinks nothing of performing the feat. He does admit that it might be danger ous but With the' necessary precautions he has nothing to f^ar. Asked of the danger of landing In a grove, he stated htat all that is necessary is to hold one's legs tightly together, and you plow right through the foliage.

One of the objects of this im provement is to provide a lake resort for hunting.. fishing and boating, but the major purpose is'to provide water power for electrical purposes. One of the prime movers in 'the enterprise is Frank Montgomery, who owns a large part of the land which will be cover ed by the waters of the lake.

She assisted her in various manners and after they reached Charles City shaw that she was made as comfortable as possible. Mrs. Davidson thanked her kindly, took her name and address and said, "You will be rewarded for your kindness." Miss Harig gave the mat ter no further thought until she re ceived notice from Judge Smith, of Chicago, that Mr. Davidson had died April 24th and had named Miss Harig in her will as a beneficiary for $1,500, $1,000 to be paid June 1.5, 1920, and $500 May 1, 1921.

Shan Tung, a. crafty Chinaman at tho post, alone suspects Keith of the impersonation and threatens to divulge the secret uniess Keith influences Mir iam Kirkstonc, the murdored man's daughter, to rnarry him. A terrific mob-fight follows in which the China man is killed. A younger sister of tho dead officer arrives at the Post and unaware of Keith's impersonation, shows a sisterly affection for him.
