Vice President and Secretary—New
Locker Room and Shower Bath to Be

Are to Be Made.
With the selection Of a new Aboard of

H. J. Howe, and1- Lloyd R. Maxwell,
whom Mr. Abbott chose, have been
elected by the club. Mr. McCreery
was chosen vice president, and Mr,
Trine secretary and treasurer by the
The changes in the course arid the
club house, which the directors have
under, consideration, consist of chang
ing four of the nine greens of the
course, the erection of a building to
contain lockers and a shower bath for
men, and the remodeling of the men's
locker room In the club house and
making it into a dining room.
The holes of the course, which are so
situated as to necessitate crossing the
course of other holes to get to them,
are to be changed so as to avoid con
gestion along certain courses when
there are many players in the field, as
will be the case during the state tourn
ament play. Hole No. 2, which is
known as "Keokak." and which Is sit
uated hear the east boundary fence of
the grounds, is to be moVed back from
seVenty-five to 100 yards, across, the
fence Into -the Yetley pasture. Vines
are to be grown on the wire fence, to
make it a hazard in trying for the'
hole. Another similar hazard is to be
placed near the hole No. 9. The change
to, be made will lengthen the course
about 200 yards.
A special committee has been ap
pointed to make arrangement^ for the
building, which will contain the lookers
and. shower baths. The rearrangement
of the holes, teeing places
has been placed under the charge of
the committee on the course, of which
Lloyd R. Maxwell is chairman.
A house committee consisting of Mrs.
F. B. Garvin, chairman, and Mrs. B.

also been chosen.
Mr. and Mrs.George Pierce, who oc
cupied the club house during, last sea
son, are to be retained for this year.
The work of making the changes
which have 'been planned will be be
gun ad soon as the weather permits.

J. C. Baily Sells Thirty Head of Thor
oughbred Poland Chinas.
J. C. Baily, a well known farmer and
hog breeder, living three miles south

China brood sows at the fair grounds

every way, and many buyers from a

the big event, afrid a host of buyers
from contiguous counties and northern,
•northwestern and central Iowa points,
were in attendance. All but about six
of the thirty head sold went to .buyers
from other counties.
Mr. Bailey's sale was quite unique
because of the fact that practically ail

Now that Dr. Roberts has decided
that It will not be advisable for him to,

by drawftig lots. There seems to be no

Mr. Read's Brother Dead.
Editor Times-Republican:—The ar
ticle in your paper last evening in re
lation to the mayor's settlement with
the property owners concerning the
pavement, was not*exactly fair to the
paving company. On Saturday of last
week there arose a dispute between the
mayor and the representative of. the
paving company, in regard to the con
struction of a portion of the written
agreement of4 settlement entered Into
between the city and the paving com
pany. Mr. W. L. Read, of the firm of
Read & Read, represented the paving
company in drawing the contract of
settlement. He was immediately in
formed of the dispute that arose Sat
urday, and was requested to come here
as soon as convenient and agree ^ith'
the mayor in regard to the same. Mr.
Read was expected here on Tuesday
or Wednesday of this week to take thfe
matter up with the mayor. On Wed
nesday evening we received word of
the death of Mr. Read's brother, and
that he would not be able to be here
for a few days. We informed the may
or of this fact yesterday morning and
asked that the matter of payment be
suspended for a day or two on that ac
count. Just why the mayor, under the
circumstances, insisted on making a
settlement before Mr. Re&d could reach
here, we are not advised he knew
that no one here had authority from
the paving company to settle the dis
pute concerning the construction of the
I make this statement slmjily to show
that t|ie paving company did not re
main away from here yesterday for
the purpose of delaying this matter
that the same occurred solely on ac
count of the death of Mr. Read's broth,
er. No harm would have resulted to
anyone by delaying this matter a day
or two, until Mr. Read could, with pro
priety, have left home.

Grippe Prevalent ir* City and County—
How Sick Are Doing.
Grippe is prevalent in different parts
of the county as well as the city, and
as usual many of the older people are
victims. Several cases are quite se
vere. Pneumonia Is also quite preva
lent, and the damp weather of the past
few days has been hard on any one
suffering from colds or lung affections.
Mrs. Charles Whitehead, 108 North
Third street, is quite ill of grippe, and
her case is serious enough that a
trained nurse was secured today.
Master Orxnond Laird, the eldest son
of Mr. and Mrs. H. L. Laird, 523 North
Third, has been very seriously ill of
grippe, complicated with lung and
bowel troubles. On Tuesday he suf
fered a collapse, but has rec»Mted
from'that so that today he is consid
ered out of danger.
Mrs. Dewey LaPlant, who has been
very seriously 111 of erysipelas, is some
what improved, and is doing as nicely
as could be expected-
Mrs. Ellen Clembns, widow of "Dr."
Clemons, of Clemons, is quite seriously
111 of grippe.
Mrs. Margaret Rockey, who lives
with her daughter, Mrs. T. Nelson
Downs, 8 South Third avenue, is again
seriously ill, having suffered a relapse
after her recent case of pneumonia.
Mrs. Rockey was first taken ill seven or
eight weeks ago, and became convales
cent. She contracted a severe cold a
few weeks ago, and the pneumonia
again developed. Relapses in pneu
monia cases ,are always considered ser
ious, but there are still hopes that the
patlept will recover.
Mrs. James E. Dunn, living four
miles north of St. Anthony, In the
Dunn settlement, underwent a very
delicate surgical operation at her home
Thursday afternoon. She is doing as
nicely as could be expected, so soon
after the operation.
Mrs. Wiley Smith, of Clemons, is
quite 111 of grippe at the home of her
daughter, Mrs. Will Kaiser.
The condition of Mrs. R. A. Decker,
Mrs. B. W. Sinclair's grandmother, is
about the same. She is of course, still

L. T. COOPER.
O, We wish to call the attention of the public to a
to a series of "short talks" by L. T. Cooper that are
to be published in this paper,
C, The Cooper medicines have made a remarkable re
cord in the leading cities of the United States during the
past two years and young Mr. Cooper has been the sub
ject of much newspaper comment.
d. Mr. Cooper has met and talked with thousands of
sick people in his visits to almost every large city in the
Q, He is noted as a man of very few words and tells
briefly in these articles what his preparations are doing
for sick people and. why they have been successful
wherever introduced. ,/
Mr. Cooper's theory is that one half of all human ills
is caused by stomach trouble, and the wonderful suc
cess of his preparations in the treatment of stomach
disorders, kidney and liver complaints, rheumatism, etc.,
seems to have proven this claim.
G. Some time ago we secured the agency for these cele
brated medicines. We have been gratified by the
extreme satisfaction of those who have purchased them
from us and advise every one to read these "short talks"
as they are full of terse, common sepse.
