"Well. BUI, I sure know what the first line 'trenches,' up on the parapet and 'over the top' means now.

ONE FIRM NOT SKY ICE PRICE Fifty Cents a Hundred Will be Asked, Says One of the Representa tives—Government Supervises. "No increase in the price of ice, so far as our company is concerned, is contemplated," said El K. Johnstone of the Keokuk Pure Ice company, to day. "Dealers have done no profit eering. The price of ice in Keokuk is lower now than In other Iowa towns." So far the ice oompanies have re ceived no new orders from the gov ernment although the food adminis tration declares ice comes under its control. For some time the dealers have been directly under government supervision through the bureau of chemicals. In event the deaters should want to increase the price the matter must first be brought before the food ad ministration and passed upon. Both artificial and natural ice are selling at fifty cents a hundred pounds. The food administration has fixed the price at sixty cents in New York. Satisfied With Food.

Few rainy days and cool weather have favored fieid work which has progressed more rapidly than in any spring in recent years. The labor supply, which is known to be much shorter than usual, has been used to remarkably good advantage. About 85 per cent of the corn ground is ready for planting and only warm, sunny days are needed to start the planters briskly. In fact, a little planting has been done in the south ern counties and a few scattered re ports of the planting have been re ceived from as far north as Greene and Pocahontas counties. However, the scarcity and low vitality of seed corn will keep cautious farmers from taking the risk of planting till the ground is warm. Pastures and hay lands have suf fered seriously from the cold, dry spring. Fruit trees are in full bloom in the south and beginning to bloom in the central portions of the state.
