The trade extension delegation ot the Chicago association of Commerce returned a few days ago from a trip to the northwestern states and its members were not only astonished at the growth of that country, but awed by the boosting spirit that prevails in even the smallest hamlet of the Pa cific coast section. At every stop there were lines of automobiles at the sta tion to take the Chicago delegation out to see the sights, and there was a booster in every automobile talking money in six figures, pointing out men who had come there a few years before "broke" and who were now rolling in wealth, always adding, however, that that country today offered more prom ise of quick returns than ever before. It all sounded so alluring, one of the newspaper men who accompanied the party said, that when the parly return er to the train they felt the necessity of calling the roll to see that none had listened to the siren call and de serted. There was a banquet at every stop and eloquent speakers to tell the visitors that the particular place in which they were stopping was destin ed to future greatness. Here are some of the claims made by five of the cities in which the visitors were en tertained, as told by one of the cor respondents who made the trip: In Seattle they tell you that their town is marked by destiny as the future great metropolis of the north west. It has the start, the location and the greatest harbor in the world, a harbor, where the navies of all the nations there be can rest at anchor. At Everett one of the eloquent speakers said:" "Here in Everett, on proud Puget Sound, we. have the greatest harbor in the world, a har bor where all the navies of every na tion that there be can lie snugly at anchorage." At Bellingham the chairman of the Commercial association in bis address of welcome said: "You are in Belling ham, Bellingham on Puget Sound, and here you will find the greatest harbor of the world, where the navies of every nation on earth can lie together peacefully at anchorage." At Tacoma the committee called our attention to the fact that we were in the city at the head of navigation on marvelous Puget Sound, where there is the greatest harbor in the world and where "all the navies of every nation on earth could lie together in proud security. And at Portland we were assured that here indeed was the greatest har bor in the world, "where all the navies of all the nations that there be could lie together in sweet harmony." This is just a sample of the boosting spirit that prevails in the northwest. Everybody in that section believes it to b? his first duty to impress the vis Itor with the belief that his town has all the natural advantages and some unnatural advantages, and that noth ing can prevent it from some day eluK one of the first cities of the land »-s ,- CASTORIA For Infants and Children. The Kind You Have Always Bought Bears the Signature of In Use For Over Thirty Years CASTORIA It is the same all through the west. In DenVer they will proudly lay claim to 365 days of sunshine, although it does not require a visit of many days to find out that even Denver is fre quently behind the clouds. They will tell you it is an "ideal winter resort" when you can't leave the radiator long enough to look for a thermometer and see just how cold it is. They will not tell you that a manufacturer has the hardest kind of a pull to make a profit after paying the excessive freight rates on the raw products shipped in to him and on the finished article he sends out. Neither will they tell you that it is Impossible to raise enough farm produce to support your own family without investing in costly ir rigation rights, if you are fortunate enough to find any water with which to irrigate. But their boosting pays. It is draw ing money from every state in the union, much of which might be much better invested at home. Iowans might find a lesson In this. They have shown a disposition to rest on their oars, secure in the conviction than "in all that is good Iowa affords the best," while the people of the west are out on the hill tops shouting extravagant claims and apparently meeting with great success in "getting away with it." KEEP SALOONS OFF MARKET STREET, The city council last night by a vote of five to three granted a permit for the operation of a saloon at the cor ner of South Market and Commercial streets. Mayor Phillips promptly serv ed notice that he would veto the reso lution of consent and the large ma jority of the citizens, regardless of political affiliations and regardless of their views on the saloon question, will hope that the mayor remains firm in this matter. The resolution cannot be passed over the mayor's veto, as Alderman Spry, who was not present at the meeting last night will vote against' the resolution and make a two-thirds majority impossible. There is no mistaking the over whelming sentiment in Ottumwa against the operation of saloons on South Market street. Previous to the last election both parties pledged themselves to keep the saloons off this block. Ottumwa demanded that the only main thoroughfare from the north to the south sides be saloon less. And it was conceded by the large majority that people had the right to object to having a "battle row", to pass through in going to and from their daily work. The resolution of consent as passed by the council last night provides for an entrance- into the saloon on Com mercial street instead of on Market street as formerly. But this is a mere subterfuge. The crowd of bums that frequented this street when every other business building in the block was a saloon would still be found loaf ing on the brass railings on the Mar ket street side no matter where the entrance should be. And women and children would be forced again to face the humiliation of making their way through the tobacco-spitting, slobbering, staggering crowd that al ways frequented the saloons on "bat tle row." The saloons should be kept off Mar ket street south of Main. We believe the people will insist on this. THE NEED OF GOOD ROADS. In a speech on the good roads ques tion in the lower house of congress re cently, Representative William Sulzer of New York, made a forceful presen tation of a subject that is of vital im portance to the people. Arguing that there is no subject at the present time of more importance to all the people than the proposition to con struct good roads by governmental aid along economic and constitutional lines, Air. Sulzer said: The difference between good roads and bad roads is the difference be tween profit and loss. Good roads have a money value far beyond our cid.'nary conception. Bad loads consti tute our greatest drawback to internal v' development and material progress. Good roads mean prosperous farmers bad roads mean abandoned farms, sparsely settled country districts, and congested populated cities, where the poor are destined to become poorer. Good roads mean more cultivated farms and cheaper food products for the toilers in the towns bad roads mean poor transportation, lack of com rqunication, high prices for the neces saries of life, the loss of untold, mil lions of wealth and idle workmen seeking employment. Good roads will help those who cultivate the no: and feed the multitude, and whatever aids the producers of our country will in crease our wealth and our greatness and benefit all the people. "We car.not destroy our farm* without final decay. They are today the heart of our na tional life and the chief source of our r.aterial greatness. Tear dov/n every edifice in our cities and labor will re build them, but abandon the farms and our cities will diaapepar forever. Good roads mean progress and pros perity, a benefit to the people who live in the cities, an advantage to the people who live in the country, and it will 'help every section of our vast domain. Good roads, like good streets, make habitation along them most desirable they enhance the value of farm lands, facilitate trans portation, and add untold wealth to the producers and consumers of the country they are the milestones mark ing the advance of civilization they economize time, give labor a lift, and make millions in money they save wear and tear and worry and waste they beautify the country, bring it In touch with the city they aid the social and the religious and the edu cational and the industrial progress of the people they make better homes and happier hearth sides they are the avenues of trade, the highways of com merce, the mail routes of information, and the agencies of speedy communi cation they mean the economical transportation of marketable products —the maximum burden at the mini mum cost they are the ligaments that bind the country together in thrift and industry and intelligence and patriotism they promote social inter course, prevent intellectual stagnation, and increase the happiness and the prosperity of our producing masses they give employment to our idle work men, distribute the necessaries of life —the products of the fields and the forests and the factories—encourage energy and husbandry, inculcate love for our scenic wonders, and make mankind better and greater and grander and broader. Congressman Sulzer denied that good roads will help only the farmer. The farmers, who produce the neces saries of life, he said, are less de pendent than the millions and millions of people who live in our cities. The very lives of these latter, he declared, depend on the farmers—the producers of the necessaries of life, and the most superficial investigation of thjs subject will clearly prove that good roads are more important to the con sumers than they are to the producers of the country. THE CIVIC IMPROVEMENT MEET ING. As announced in the Courier last evening there will be an open meeting of the City Federation of Women's clubs and the Commercial association at the Armory hall Thursday evening of this week to which the public is in vited. The purposes of this meeting as announced are: 1. Beautifying the city in a syste matic way. 2. Encouraging the acceptance and maintenance by the city of more parks. 3. Upholding and encouraging the good work already in the hands of the park commissioners. 4. Advocating more and better play grounds for the children of Ottumwa. 5. And in general making the city of Ottumwa more attractive as a place in which to live. Here are some subjects that every citizen should be interested in. Any plans that may be discussed for mak ine Ottumwa more attractive will bo of Interest to all. Tt took three months to get a jury to try Patrick Calhoun, the San Fran cisco street railway magnate charged with bribery, and then the jury could not agree. Perhaps if they take six months empanelling the next jury they will have better results in deter mining whether Mr. Calhoun did or didn't. The taxpayers will pay it. They don't mind. Let me see—how many straights Is that the home team's lost? It's hard to keep count. Apropos of the Gould disclosures the Chicago Tribune suggests this: If a lady meet a lady, when too full of rye, if a lady bite a lady, need a lady cry? .. A Massachusetts couple took a honeymoon trip in a balloon. This is a reversal of the usual order. Usually the domestic balloon does not go up until after the honeymoon is over. In the horoscope, that newsy bit of mysticism published daily in the Courier, there were these two hints for today that should be of interest: Women shoppers will find bargains this day. This should be an extraordinarily good day for fishing. A good day for bargains and a good day for fishing. How many of the Courier readers are there who will not be interested in one or both of these :r.dtters? WtTbur Wright, one of the Dayton brothers who are modestly carrying well earned honors once dodged an Vagaries of a Cold. You can never be quite sure where a cold Is going to hit you.

The only way Walter Wellman could convince the public that he had been to the north pole would be to bring It back with him. A dispatch today says that friends of Commander Peary believe he has located the north pole. Maybe they are just doing this to discourage Wal ter Wellman. Walt was due to start today on his annual search. STORIES ABOUT PEOPLE. A Servant of the Lord. Judge George F. Lawton of the Mid dlesex probate court told me a story the other day of an American minister who was spending his sabbatical year traveling abroad. Arriving in London he made every effort to get an inti mate view of the two branches of parliament in session. Of course no stranger is allowed on the floor cf tho house of lords, but the minister not knowing this, and with th'j usual amount of American push, tried to make his way in. There is a rule, however, that servants of the various lords may be admitted to speak to their masters. Seeing the minister walking boldly in, the doorkeeper asked: "What lord do you serve?" "What lord?" repeated the aston ished American. "The Lord Jehovah." For a moment the doorkenper hesi tated anc\ then admitted him. Turn ing to an assistant standing near, he said: "He must mean one of those poor Scotch fairds."—Boston Record. Not Worth Shingling. "The late Thomas Bone, "th? sail or's missionary," was the soul of kind liness, but he was seldom worstel in repartee. One of the many instances of this given In his just-published life is the following: "His work was not without its humorous side. Among the new men there are always some who sought a little amusement at the expense, but they reckoned without their host. His kindly manner never changed. The smile never left his face. There was no venom in the retort, but it seldom failed to silence the interrupter. Thij laugh raised at his expense made it quite certain that no second attempt would be made. "Seeing him approach one day, one of a, group of sailors announced his intention of having some fun. He stepped forward and removed his hat, revealing a perfectly smooth crown, and asked: 'Can you tell me why my head is so bald, while all my companions have plenty of hair?' 'I don't know,' was the smiling re ply, 'unless the reason given me the other day by a farmer would apply, that an empty barn is not worth shingling.'"—Judge. 8eed Fell on Arable Ground. A well know prelate of the Cleve land diocese recently preached a series of sermons, his general theme being "Humility." In the course of his ser mons he necessarily dwelt upon tho nothingness of man without the help of grace. His auditors were the gen tle nuns of the Villa convent, and the convent school pupils made up of many young ladles, girls and small boys. At the conclusion of thg sermons the prelate, while divesting huoseif of the garments of the altar service, turned to the sanctuary boys, lads of 10 or 11 years. "What are you?" in quired the venerable priest of one of the two boys. Quick as a flash came back the apswer, "I am an Irishman, and I am proud of It." "And what are you?" he asked t.h-3 other lad. Crossing his little hands upon his breast he quietly replied, "Father, I have been listening. I am nothing." The aged administrator of the Cleve land diocese chuckled as he unfolds the tale. The seed had evidently fallen on arable ground.—Cleveland Leader. THE FATE OF THE PEDESTRIAN Cleveland Plain Dealer, Chug! Br-r! Br-r! -Chug- Honk! Honk! Gillgillug-glllgillug!! The pedestrian paused at the Inter section of two busy cross streets. He looked about. An automobile was rushing at him from one direc tion, a motor-cycle from another an auto-truck was coming from behind, and a taxicab was speedily approach' ing. Zip-zip! Zing-glug! He looked up and saw directly above him a runaway airship in rapid descent. There was but one chance. He was standing upon a manhole cover. Quickly seizing it, he lifted the lid and jumped into the hole just in time to be run over by a subway train. WEDDINGS MADE TOO RIOTOUS. Rev. W. H. Butler of Northampton, Mass., spoke on marriage the other day and there was so much of truth and sting in his-words that they de serve to be pushed along to a wide publicity, "I never saw a band of well-dressed hoodlums at a railroad Btation with old boots, rice and tin pans galore with out thinking of the customs of heathen nations. Marriages should be cele brated in churches, but there should be no engraved Invitations with their plunder in the way of wedding gifts. Of course Mr. Butler didn't include in his lists of plunderings the gifts wliich go to brides from friends. There Is no prettier custom than this expres sion of love and tenderness on the part of tried and true companionship. And the present grows more beautiful In its meaning the more it partakes of the nature of the giver. With the rest of his remarks the world can find no fault. In too many cases an invita tion is a hold-up the engraved card a pistol to the head. Various conditions make the recipient "give up." Busi ness relatives, social ties, the desire of the climber to get higher, the (ear 1 of the one who has arrived that he may fall, politics, religion, are only a few of the complications. It was bad enough when the wed ding was the sole occasion of such grafting, but now young maidenhood has to stand a continous hold-up per formance. "Showers" of all sorts, from kitchen utensilB to silk stock: ings, deplete the purses of the un fortunate friends of the bride, and then, on top of all this miscellaneous expenditure, must come the wedding gift. What Mr. Butler says of the hood lum customs of the guests at the wedding is equally justified. The harmless pleasantries of former years, genial customs of other days, have grown into annoying and vulgar practices. Those whose words have weight have been too mealy-mouthed in denouncing them. Mr. Butler is rather lonely in his clerical opposition, but he has a multitude of sensible peo ple with him.—Cleveland Leader. THE STORY OF ESAW WOOD. Esaw Wood sawed wood. Esaw Wood would saw wood.

Des Moines, June 22.—After four years of struggle and weary waiting In an alien land, mother love in the breast of Baroness von Kutzleben of Berlin has triumphed over the prison bars of Anamosa, and today she is speeding eastward from Chioaso in the same Pullman -with the demented son for whose liberty she has fought and prayed since he wrecked a Rock Is land passenger train at Homestead in March, 1905. Baron Eric von Kutzleben was re leased from the reformatory at Ana mosa Saturday afternoon after Coyinty Attorney Cash of Jones county had of fered futile resistance the habeas corpus proceedings brought before Judge W. M. Trelchler at Anamosa by Attorneys Popham & Hayner of Mar c-ngo, and an hour later the unfor tunate nobleman boarded a train for Chicago, where his mother waited at the station with tears of joy In her eyes. Last night mother and son took a train for New .York and the f.rs.t de parting steamer will carry them back to the fatherland and the home which young Kutzleben left more than five years ago in the hope of benefiting his health, driven to desperation and the life of a wanderer by epileptic fits which cut short a brilliant career In tho armv and branded him a pariah. Mother Makes Sacrifice. Kutzleben's final release after a con viction for murder In the first degree and four years spent In the Insane ward at Anamosa Is a story of-the love of a mother who has sacrificed all for her boy. Leaving her home and the associations of a life spent at the Ger man court, she took the first boat that sailed after the news of her son's ar rest reached her, and coming to Mar engo engaged the best attorneys In that city .to defend her son, whose malady and subsequent misfortune had only Increased the maternal tender ness. Kutzleben had spent only three weeks in the German colony at Maren go when the midnight passenger train to Chicago ran into the ditch and En gineer A. P. Hotchklss was killed. The young German, then 25 years old, had been seen tampering with the rails near the scene of the wreck and an ex amination showed that an angle bar had been pulled out of position, leav ing the rails loose. In spite of an able defense. Kutzle ben was convicted and sentenced to imprisonment for life for murder In the first degree. Baroness von Kutzle ben attended the trial and was pros trated when the verdict came. Pop ham & Havner of Marengo, who con ducted the defense, took an appeal to the supreme court and the lower, court was reversed on error. Baroness von Kutzleben in the meantime had taken up her residence In New York and re fused to return to,Germany while her son was behind tho bars. Before the second trial began, von Kutzleben's attorneys filed an applica tion for a hearing to determine their client's sanity, and although It was re sisted by the prosecuting attorneys, the application was granted and von Kutzleben was pronounced Insane by a .lury, after a prison doctor and guards had testified. Lon Wait Brings Victory. But the verdict was not sufficient to give the young nobleman his release, and he was committed to Anamosa under a provision of the Towa statute that says the criminally Insane may be detained in state's prison pending their recovery or the dismissal of the indict ments against them. Von Kutzleben was taken to Ana mosa and there he has remained four years while his mother lived quietly In New York, making occasional visits to the reformatory to pee her son. Last November the second indict ment charging von Kutbleben with malicious train wrecking was dismiss ed at Marengo, and from that day un til his release on Saturday h!s attor neys have been preparing to prove that he te not dangerously insr.ne and can be trusted '.o the care of his fam ily. In a damage suit at Council Bluffs growing out of the Homestead wreck it was disputed that von Kutz leben had actually wrecked the train, and the uncertainty rnlsed by tills contention aided his attorneys in con vincing Judge Trelchler that he should be released. Von Kutzleben is now 29 years of ape and in fairly good health. Sur rounded by his friends and family and receiving the benefit of treatment by the best German physicians and nerve specialists, it Is hoped and believed by his mother that he will recover en tirely and live to look back upon .his experience In an Iowa prison as a hor rid dream. :Mr. Mrs. E. M- Sprowles of Cincinnati, Ohio, who Popham accompanied von Kutz leben to Chicago, where they were met by the baroness, who had been notified that the attempt was to be made Sat urday and had come west from New York to join her son at the earliest, possible moment.
