*&a TWO Complains of Treatment at Insane I+ospiml. Albert N. Hazelton, of Lamoni, who spe»t several nioatlis in the in sane hospital at Clarinda, the past winter, complains of the treatment Teceived at the hands of somp of the attendants, the following dispatch from Lamoni appearing in Monday Des Moines Register: liAMONI, la, May 9—Perhaps every inmate and former inmate ot hospitals for the insane had at one time or other concocted schemes for -'getting even" with those who were responsible for their incarceration, their poor food, and ill treatment, hut Albert N. Hazelton, who spent a term of four months in Clarnula hospital this winter is getting at the root of the thing. He has spent over $100 for cop ies of a book entitled, "The Mind That Found Itself," a work recog nized as authoritative, written by a Yale man who alter a serious ex perience recovered the use of his faculties and in the process of re covery deliberately had unset 1 committed to the violent wards tor the personal experiences to be had there. Hazelton complains of some nns treatment from attendants but feels the whole subject is worthy popu lar attention, so he is sending cop ies of his book to various local and state officials, with the intention ot opening their eyes to the evils still •persisting in our methods of hand ling the mentally afflicted. He claims that if local authori ties had onlv understood more about mental hygiene, he would not have been compelled to spend four months under guard, working for nothing, a atate charge. He also insists that he was only deranged about mental hygiene, he would returned to nor mal if put under the care of a phy sician for a few days at home. At the time of his arrest f?r in sanity, he was in a state of religious exaltation, pouring coal oil on the fire in the cookstove. He is a successful gardener, per haps 30 years of age, living peace fully with his mother town, and has the respect of all his neighbors. See Smith & DeKalb who sell or fwV Red River Valley lands.

Now playing. Don't miss it. IDLE HOUR Sunday and Monday May 16 and 17. Farm Bureau Kotos. The past week we put on the first spray at the orchard of iNlr. Al. J* Porter at Van Wert. This sprayiag demonstration is under the super vision of Mr. Newton L. Partridge of the State College, and this orchard will be sprayed four times during the summer. The past few warm days has crowded the apple blos soms out very fast and it will in all probability be too late to apply the first or cluster bud spray when this article gets into print. It should be put on before blossoms open up and not sprayed until blossoms have fall en off. "Many orchards are affected by the spring tanker worms and care should be taken *o make a heavy ap plication of lead arsenate where tliey have appeared in previous years. If you do not have the lime sulphur to add to the lead arsenate— by all means spray with the lead alone—if your orchard is badlv in fested with the spring canker worms. If you cannot obtain the material for spray solution for the» first time, be sure and apply the other three ac cording to spray schedule for 3rd. and 4th. spray and use 6 quarts lime sulphur instead of five quarts on calyx or 2nd. spray. Be sure and have foliage dripping wet. This week will witness the plant ing of soy beans and corn variety plots. We are hoping to get some valuable information from these ex periments. We are unloading two cars of lime stone this week and hope to unload many more before the season is over. If you would obtain a suc cessful stand of clover or alfalfa, you should apply lime as most all of soils are acid. The boys' corn club will get un der way this week and a nice bunch of boys have enrolled for the pro ject. There will be some hot com petition among the boys. We would like to start a men acre contest, but guess there are no good growers in the county, or at least it appears that way—as none have shown a disposition to enroll in such contest. The Decatur County Bee-keepers Association will hold a county wide picnic sometime in June at the farm of Mr. S. H. Duffield, where a fine program will be given and an address by Prof. F. B. Paddock, also one by Prof. E. W. Atkins. Mr. Pad dock is the state apiarist and no man or woman interested in bees should miss his address, as some practical lessons in bee-keeping will be given by actual demonstrations on the hives of Mr. Duffield. Mr. Atkins, the field specialist, will also give some practical hints on bees amd their care and you should plan to attend. Bring your lunch basket and the whole family and stay all da^4t the meeting of the Fleece Wool Growers held at the Court House on last Friday evening, it was decided to pool and ship wool of all mem bers same as we did last year. The State Bankers Association has rec ommended to all county hanks that they advance from 75 per cent up on all wool consigned by growers at the current rate of interest lor this locality. This money will be ad vanced upon certificates of the one who is in charge of the loading of wool, said certificate to show the number of pounds of wool consigned and actually billed out to the bond ed wool warehouse. The wool so consigned and drawn upon is to be held as collateral by the banker who advances the money. Some may object to paving interest on the money so advanced, but we would have you remember that if you are taking over the dealers business you must assume some of Ms risks as well. It makes no difference either for if he buys your wool with borrowed capital—he just pays you that much less per pound, and you had just as "^1 pav it out of one pocket as the other—it won't hurt anv worse. The washing of the top layers ot the soil from our hillsides and the cutting of ditches that divide our fields into small irregular nieces constitute the most serious menace to our agricultural land. Sometime ago the United States Department of Agriculture made an estimate that a cubic mile of soil eroded from the farms of the United States reaches the Gulf and the Oceans each year. ]f our state loses 1-48 of it and De catur county 1-99 of that it will mean a six inch layer off of 1420 acres each year. This does not take into account the soil that does not reach the Gulf—that which washes off our fields onto our neigbors. The problem of holding onto our soil and of stopping the ditches is one that requires care and watch fulness. The cost of controlling soil erosion can no longer be charged against the soil or the field but sub tracted from the high labor cost of cultivating badly eroded areas. The results obtained in many parts of the state, even in soils that are harder to hold than ours, where notable pieces of work are being done with but small expenditure of money and labor leads us to the con clusion that erosion can be controll ed on Decatur county farms. A series of meetings have been called for May 17, 18, and 19, in De catur county at which time Prof. H. H. Sunderlin of the Extension De partment at Ames will explain the methods of checking erosion that have proved successful on Iowa farms. Mr. Sunderlin has been working on this problem with a large number of farmers for a good many years and he can tell us what is beiqg done. The meetings will be held at the following places, Claude Ramsey farm, one mile west of Van Wert on May 18th, and at the J. W. Walton farm—five miles south-east of Leon on Biay ISth. Everyone who is interested is invit ed. Oil clothes are about the only bad habits some women have. THEiiE0fr BCYO&TKK, TEV&SDAY, MAY 13,.1920 fallowed Their Authority—But Ex pensive. The States Highway Commission recently turned down the bids the Board of Supervisors accepted when bids were asked for furnishiug ma terial for county work last January. As far as known locally the bids were bo«a fide in every respect and as for their being low and reason able as prices are today, they were exceptional bargains for the county. The contracts ror furnishing the material was given the Hayes Lum ber Co. of this city, and other bid ders claimed the prioes were so low that no profit could be ihade. But in due time the State Highway Com mission sent word that the bide had been rejected, and called for new ones. The prnper advertising was done bv the cotmty auditor, the date set being Monday of this week, and there was but one bid entered, that of the same company which luid had their bid rejected, but this time the prices were considerably higher on the material. The scarcity of material caused other nearby firms to not submit any prices. Whether or not the. second bid of the local company will be rejected, of course is not known, and every additional delay is costing the tax payers of the county more money, for the material must be secured from some source and a certain amount of road, bridge and other countv work done this year. The State Highway Commission has the final say in such matters, and it looks like they are keeping up with the other state officials in making this administration, by their mismanagement, the most expensive and inefficient administration in the history of this or any other state.— Corydon Democrat. 'Uprisings' reported all over Europe. Most riotous ones in this country are the uprisings from the desks that occur when the teacher says school is dismissed. We understand that H. L. Ot ipliant is in communication with a large prospecting and oil producing Oil Company of the Texas field* who have indicated that they would be willing to drill two holes in this ter ritory provided a sufficiently large acreage could he secured. Definite propositions as to the amount of acreage or terms of leas ing have not yet been received but Mr. Oliphant is expecting them soon and will then take up the matter with landowners of this vicinity. The company proposes to make a thorough test of this territory by sinking two holes 3,00 feet deep without financial help from the com munity. The deep hole at the mine was only about 800 feet deep, as we remember it, and the impression has alwavs prevailed here that there was a strong showing of oil, but the drill ing was stopped when the big vein of coal was struck, and the Company changed their plans from oil to coal production. In case the proposition of these people is a liberal one we have no doubt but that they will be able to secure all the leases necessary to justify a thorough testing or this part of the country.—Gainsville News.
