Iowa Clothing and Shoe CoJ HOUSE of QUALITY 103405 EAST MAIN STREET 118 SOUTH COURT STREET ii AGED COUPLE BACK IN IOWA MR. AND MRS. LONG HAVE BITTER EXPERIENCE IN PARCHED LANDS OF SOUTH. Des Moines, March 21.—A prarie schooner crawled into Des Moines recently, drawn by two decrepit horses and driven by an aged man, while a less aged but poorly clad wom an lay on some straw in the' bed of the wagon. Forty years ago' Mr. and Mrs. Al bert Long of La Crosse. Wis., in tfce heydey of life, drove the self same schooner through Iowa, Nebraska and then south to Oklahoma. A span of sleek horses pulled the schooner and its occupants on to Oklahoma, which was to be the home of the little fam ily. Hot winds and cyclones visited the family on its farm and devastated crops. Sickness entered the home with drouth on close trail and the children one by one sickened and died. Finally in sheer desperation the father fitted up the old schooner, laid the sick mother on a bed of straw and turned the horsey* noses toward Iowa. "I used to read the sign, "Back to Wife's Folks," on the schooner as they'd go through Iowa and Nebraska and just laugh and laugh," said Mr. Long. "Now I don't laugh when I think of it. It was sad reading. The outgoing schooners would have on them, 'West or bust.' I guess it's like me and Tilly, it was west and bust. We busted. We did the best we knew how. The babies came and the bab ies died. They were mighty cute. One lived to be 6 years old. She was Tilly, named after my wife. Okla homa is no state for old folks." 4, FACTORY FOR FORT DODGE Commercial Club Is Negotiating for the Location Plant in Northern City—Meet Tonight. Mt.

Terrytown, N. Y., March 21—The paramount isue of the condition for the election of a board of supervisors for Tarrytown, which will be decided at the polls here today, is whether or not Webber road shall be closed of ficially and the traffic diverted to Bed ford road.

Recently the board gave him permis sion to put up signs directing auto mobilistB to take the Bedford road, but this was not mandatory and any body who choose to drive over Webber had the right to do so.
