Where a Dollar
Does Its Duty
Shoes that are "Juet Shoes" no longer tempt the woman who
dresses carefully. She wants to select deliberately the shoes that
suit her taste, fit her feet and harmonize with her costume.
Des Moines Capital: The other day
an elderly woman with hw arms full
of bundles crossed the street at a
busy corner.' She had waited several
minutes until street cars and automo
biles could pass so that the way
might be clear. Her manner clearly
showed nervousness and she took
every possible precaution.
Just as she was about to reach the
opposite sidewalk in safety a boy on a
bicycle shot by in front of the woman
at a reckless speed. A gasp of fright
escaped her lips and she nearly
dropped her bundles. We noticed that
she leaned against a building for sev
eral minutes to regain her composure
and probably to quiet a rapidly beat
ing heart.
As we glanced up th estreet we saw
the boy on the bicycle dash between

Those In Charge of Exercises at the
Monument for Unknown Dead,
Have Been Appointed for
Memorial Day.
Committee* Hope That Looal People
Who Have Blooms Will Not
Forget to Share
The committees in charge of the
exercises at the monument of the^ un
known dead and in charge of the chil
dren who will assist at the exercises
have been appointed for the observ
ance of Memorial day on next Tues
day at the National cemetery- The
committee in charge of the monument
to the unknown" dead will be the fol
lowing: Mrs. Teeters, Mrs. Roche,
Mrs. Berryhill, Mrs. Poilard and Mrs.
The committee on children will be
the following: Mrs. Rollins, Mrs.
Bishop, Mrs. Fllesbach, Mrs. H. W.
Jones, Mrs. Lofton and Mrs. Elsie
Through an unintentional oversight,
in the report yesterdaj, the name of
Mrs. C. T. Miller, as obairman of one
of the flower committees was omitted.
The committees in charge of the
flowers hope that the generous citi
zens of Keokuk will make a special
effort to let them hare all of the
blooms possible, as they will need all
they can get to take care of the sol
diers* graves in both Oakland and
National cemeteries. With a few days
of sunshine the flowers will be in
bloom in profusion, but those who
have been fortunate enough to have
early flowers are asked to share theBe
with the committee.
Flowers should be brought to the
various school buildings as early as
8 or 8:30 o'clock.
Advertising the Church.
Des Moines Capitol: A Brooklyn
pastor recently urged his church trus
tees to employ a press agent to ad
vertise the various activities of the
congregation. He argued that the gen
eral public should know more about
what the church of today is doing In
addition to the regular "preaching
and praying."
There are some people to whom
the commercial side of the church is
repugnant. They are the class that
do not believe in church suppers, in
concerts, in lectures, in gymnasiums
for the boys and cluh rooms for the
girls. But the ultra-conservatives for
tunately are in a minority and the
modern city church is thriving as it
never has done in a similar period in
recent history.
In employing the art of advertising
the church is taking another step for
ward in its efforts to reach the
masses instead of waiting for the
masses to find the church. The name
"press, agent" may not be dignified
enough to use in this connection, but
it conveys the idea.
Successful evangelists hare trained
newspaper men on their staffs. There
are a quarter of a million churcheB
of all denominations and sects in the
United States today with a member
ship of less than one-tnird the total
population of the country. If the art
of advertising can be added to the
power of religion in a campaign to
enlarge the influence of the church,
there should be no hesitancy in adopt
ing it.
Honesty In Advertising.
Webster City Journal: A good deal
less dishonest advertising is being
used now than in years gone by, but
there is still room for more Improve
ment. Advertising ought to be honest
Every line of any advertisement
ought to ring true. The motto of
the Associated Adrertlsing Clubs of
the World—Truth—ought to be the
standard of judgment for every line
of advertising matter used, not only
in newspapers, but in circulars, on
bills and likewise on billboards. The
supreme court of the nation can do
nothing of wider benefit to the gen
eral public than to hasten the day
when the dishonest advertiser will be
compelled to reform. Dishonest ad
vertising is just as criminal as dis
honest dealing of any other sort.

Rumor has been Circulated for Some
Time and is Called German
WASHINGTON, May 26.—Denying
unqualifiedly, reports that Secretary
of State Lansing is to resign, the
state department today declared cir
culation of the report was part of the
propaganda which has been proceed
ing for several months. The broad
Intimation was given that German
sources fostered the rumor.
Secretary Lansing himself appeared
at the cabinet meeting today and will
appear at his office Monday. He
showed signs today of his recent ill
"The people who circulated this
story as part of a propaganda, know
that It is false," said a state depart
ment announcement today. "The per
sons behind this storv, circulated it
with the deliberate purpose of trying
to show there is dissension in this
government, which does not exist.
"The story first appeared several
months ago. It was sent by wireless
to Berlin as part of the propaganda,
while international relations were in
a delicate stage. The report turned
up in an allied country (being taken
from the wireless). When we heard
of it, we cabled to Berlin to let us
know when it appeared there, but it
never was printed.

at this time, take advantage of the

ATLANTIC CITY, N. J., May 26.—
The Presbyterian general assembly
today picked Dallas, Texas, as the
meeting place in 1917.
The selection of Dallas followed a
stormy meeting which lasted until
after midnight last night and resulted
during the morning of the rejection
of the recommendation of the commit
tee appointed to choose the conven
tion city. The committee recommend
ed St. LOUIB. The meeting of late
last night became so disorderly that
Moderator Marquis finally said:
"Let me appeal to you as christians
and gentlemen to behave yourselves."
The debate of the two sessions cen
tered on a resolution that cities seek
ing the assembly meetings, should
accompany their invitations with as
surances of a sufficient number of
temperance hotels to accommodate
the delegates or to close their bars
while delegates were in the hostelry.
Seattle delegates were especially ac
tive in bidding for the convention.
One delegate Bhouted:
"If the Presbyterian church is out
to accomplish results for the temper
ance cause the assembly ought to
to towns where there are saloons.
A resolution was adopted urging all
church officers to abstain from the
use pf tobacco. Oswald E. Helsing,
opposing the resolution declared th*
assembly might as well pass recom
mendation against eating candy,
drinking coffee or riding a bicycle. A
delegate asked the assembly to peti
tion wet states to permit women to
vote on liquor questions and slipped
in a woman suffrage plea. A chorus
of "no" followed.
Corporal Was Killed.
SAN ANTONIO, Texas, May 26.—
General Pershing's report of the fight
with bandits near Las Cruces In
which Candelario Cervantes was kill
ed, reached General Funston today.
Lance Corporal David Markebury was
shot through the lungs and killed.
Private F. Nicholson and George Hut
lett were wounded, but not seriously.
The men were members of the Sev
enteenth infantry machine gun com
pany. Pershing's report differed from
the unofficial versions.
The general reported Cervantes at
tacked an American surveying party
of seven infantrymen, manning ma
chine guns, two engineers and one
soldier from the quartermaster's de
partment. His report indicated the
ten men defeated the bandits, killing
two. Cavalry troops pursued and are
believed to have forced the bandits
into a stand, killing several.
