The service was advertised as “Auto mobile Sunday at the Little Brick Church in the Vale.” Topic of sermon, “The Missing Cylinder.” The church was packed to the doors. Besit.es the people of our own community there were a number of people from Edger ton, Janesville and Evansville. It was a fine sight to see 21 automobiles park ed on the beautiful lawn between the church and the school house. The ser mon by the pastor, Rev. F. T. Rhoad, was on “The Missing Cylinder.” It was a masterpiece of clear reasoning and forceful delivery. He likened the four cylinders of the automobile to the four sides of man’s nature and drew out the thought that only when all four cylinders or natures were working did you get full and complete power. He emphasized the fact that in so many people the 4th cylinder or the spiritual part of their natures was missing fire and that it was only by connecting up with the Divine Spark that all four cylinders could be kept working and full power developed. The music was furnished by the Y. M. C. A. quartet of Janesville which added greatly to the beauty of the service. The service was one of strong power and uplift. Altogether it was a day long to be re membered at the Fulton church. •>> Fulton Congregationai Church. Services this coming Sunday at 11 o’clock. Bible school at 10 o’clock.

Editor Reporter: I was much interested in the article “An Open Letter from an Old Fan at Fort Atkinson.” I will now give you a line from an “Old Fan” from Los Angeles. The first real baseball club in Edger ton was organized in 1867 by a young man named Bonsell. Fred Green, who married Anna Hough, was captain and I played shortstop. We have baseball here 365 days each year except when rain stops us. I played on Milton Col lege club in 1869, 1870 and 1871. I played with Mutual Baseball Club as shortstop part of season 1871 and re member Sutherland, St. John, Heller, Smith, Balch and Bump, and have not lost interest in the game. I remember that when we played Albion June 4th, 1869, that Whittet was pitcher and wonder if the Mr. Whittet he speaks of is the same party. I remember Coon was catcher, and seems strange after 47 years I should address this to you as you were the catcher. Green played shortstop, Burdick Ist base, Wells 2nd base, Frawley 3rd base, Abbott left field, Alva Adams center field and Chas. Bardeen right field. Kind regards to all old friends. Frank H. True.

The Delavan Condensed Milk com pany suspended operations on Satur day, July Ist, following a “strike” of the m?lk producers for more money for their product. Asa result of this, there was considerable milk in that locality that could not be disposed of, the company refusing to meet the price demanded. It is not known just how soon the condenser will resume opera tions. The Delavan Condensed Milk com pany is a corporation in which Chicago parties owned the controlling interest. When the Underwood tariff law re moved the tariff from case milk they lost so heavily that recently they made several changes in their system of management, etc. They then rented their factory to Ohio parties who had large war orders to fill, with under standing that the Ohio men could sus pend operations on short notice. For a time they paid good prices, but when the farmers of the community decided that they wanted $1.70 for their milk in place of $1.50, the price offered for July, the Ohio company simply gave up the plant, with the result that the Del avan milk producers are up against it as far as selling their milk in Delavan is concerned. A compromise ended the strike of the farmers at the Delavan Condensed Milk company. The Milk Producers’ association and the officers of the con densory, each side conceded a point. The farmers wanted $1.70 per 100 pounds, and the company offered only $1.50. The price in the future will be $1.60. The Viroqua creamery received 39,- 639 pounds cream Monday on account of receiving no cream on the Fourth, practically getting two days’ cream on one day. This is very nearly 20 tons of cream.
