BENEFIT SHOW &
FOR HURT ARAB
Performance Will Be Given Wednes
day Afternoon and Evening
at the Qrand Opera
It was felt by some of the local peo
ple that in appreciation of the won
derful work done by the Arabs here
last week in the big tent show, the
least that could be done was to ar
range for a benefit show. R- R- Ral
ston conferred with Manager Dodge
of the Qrand this morning, and the
Grand will derote Wednesday to tlje
benefit for the Arab.
Performances will be given at 2:15
lo'clock and 4 o'clock in the afternoon
and 7:15 oSclock and 9:00 o'clock In
the evening. The picture which will
be shown will be Vivian Martin in
"The Strongest Love." Joseph
Wycoff, the baritone singer, will give
several numbers, and it is possible
the Morroccan who is left here with
the injured man, may appear.
At any event It will be the least
that a generous hearted Keokuk can
do, to show their appreciation of the
splendid work of the Arohs last week,
to attend the big benefit and to make
the purse a big one. The Morroccans
have no war chest to draw from, and
any illness of this sort hits them
Can Leave Contributions.
A chance tq give immediately to
ward the fund for the injured man Is
given those who wish to leave con

The best fall celebration ever given
In Keokuk has passed into history
leaving a good taste In the months of
everyon® connected vfith the affair.
Every one of the performers has a soft
spot In his heart for Keokuk and Keo
kuk audiences, and they all want to
come back next year. The merchants
did a good amount of business with
the many visitors in the city. The gen
eral comment on the part of the vis
itors was most favorable, and they all
seemed delighted with the class of en
tertainment put up by tbe fall festival
committee and by the local merchants.
The celebration Justified In every way
the claims made for It. that It would be
the only celebration given in south
eastern Iowa this season.
The fall festival committee was com
posed of B. F. Renaud. general chair
man Jacob Schouten, financial chair
man J. W. Winger, decorations, chair
man George Baur, J. P. Ingle, J. M.
**ulton and M. EX Justice, president of
the Retailer's league.
All of the niembers of the committee
spent considerable time and care on
the celebration, and It would be hard
to thank each one Individually for the
time spent. Messrs, Baur, Schouten,
Winger and Fulton spent a lot of their
time in the management of the big
tent show. President Justice, Chair
man Renaud and J. P. Ingle looked af
ter general details, and assisted when
ever It waa possible.
Credit for the bride's car must be
given to the Royal Neighbors, and to
Will Jacobs, who drove the car. The
Royal Neighbors very kindly donated
their car which took first prise and it
was in this car that the bride was
taken from her home to the platform.

Thanks are also extended the U.
C. T. members who helped to make
that day a success and to Chairman
Balbach and his committee which made
the parade such a big success.
Want Bills at once.
The committee asks that all people
having bills against the celebration
committee to please present same at
ice. They have the money and wish
to get everything settled as soon as
possible. Bills should be sent to Sec

Strawberries in October is a very
unusual sight. J. C. VanAusdall who
lives in Jackson township, brought to
The Gate City office this morning
some berries, a blossom and one of
the plants. The berries are excellent
tasting ones. Mr. VanAusdall ex
pects to have enough for a short
cake next Sunday, in case there is
no freeze in the meantime.
(After the, berries are all picked In
the early summer, the plants are
mowed. Then they are plowed and
harrowed. This operation is repeat
ed many times before cold weather.
At tbe present time the plants on
Mr. VanAusdall'a patch are in bloom
have many green berries, wWch
will ripen«under proper conditions.
In the plowing, some of the runners
are cut off, and ttoese form other
plants at various intervals along the
runner where it touches the ground.
These plants are pushed back -into
the rows when the harrow Is used.
As soon as a freeze comes the ber
ries are mulched and protected for
the winter, and are ready for cultiva
tion then In the early spring.

Thanks From Committee. ~M
The committee extends Its thanks
to R. R. Ralston who had charge of the
concessions up to the week of the cele
bration, and then took complete charge
of the shows and the bands outsid# tbe
tent. Mr. Ralston worked conscien
tiously on this feature, and the fact
that the performance? were pulled oK
to the minute was due to Mr. Relston.
Fred H. Overton took charge of con
cessions during the week, and his ef
forts are appreciated by the commit
tee. He saw to. the collections each
evening, and all such detail. Besides
thtt, Mr. Overton had charge of, the
wedding Saturday. It. was a success
la every way, and worked out entirely
through Mr. Overton. Too much credit
cannot be given him.

This Is the Day of the

Both tallow candles and carbon
4 lamps were once the best means of lighting. To
day, however, Mazda lighting is best beoanse it
provides still better and., cheaper illumination
than do carbon lamps. Mazda lamps mean pure,
white light, easy to read or work by. They are
sturdy and long-lived. They triple the light at
the old carbon lamp cost.
