PRAY FOR PEACE
EUROPE Oa belided knee next Sabbath, on Oct. 4 implore Almighty G|od to hear you, while yo,u breath a IKE BiSt SEATIKt: 1 .• pray er imploring d'ivine guidance in re storing peace to the warring nations of the earth, to stop the frightful carnage of human life that is now taking place. Tlhe thousands of wid ows and orphans that are being made destitute through this gigan tic conflict have no comparison in history. The brains that control tae military factions have no reason. Butchery carnage and annihilation,, is their only theme. Let a spirit1of supplication prevail in behalf of Peace., Tlhe most favored nation on God's Earth at this peiisod of crisis in In ternational history is the Land of the Stars and Stripes. Never in our national history have we had a Chief Magistrate to call upon the names to perform a more "beauti ful act of devotion to the Gflod of the nation, and one of fraternal sympathy for afflicted sister" na tions, than we have in the Procla mation of I resident Wilson calling upon the 'God fearing people of this lar,d to assemble in their respec tive houses of worship and 'invoke the great .Ruler of nations to over rule the wisdom of men and bring to these storm bound nations... "Peace, perfect Peace". We have been called by Procla mation to right great Internal wrongs, we have been called to the altar of supplication and Thanks givuj'g at the close of our annual harvest, but never before hAve we come as a nation, forgetting our? w- -~fifcU'Os, and with only a thought of those under the flags of other na ions. Wiuea the smoke of battle has cleared away, the camnon noar hushed, die diplomatic hand that will drwa these natiome together will be the diplomacy of the Star Spangled Banner. For our task we shall need the guidance of Provi dance and no true citizen should fadl to join the great prayer ser vices next Lord's tDay, Oct. 4th. PAN The Booster Ladies have pur chased osme pretty seats for Exira^s handsome park. The ladies are dohig a good work and for am imr fcartasvt improvement of this kind It might be well to suggest that the passing around of a subscrip tion list to help purchase the spats There are many who would be $lfed to help in such a patriotic move ment. But from paBt experience we would propose buying iron seats com fet.ructed express'y for parks. Seats that the sitters can't destroy with jack knives as were the last lot placed there. Pretty iron Beats Will be or laimental useful and em during 7he park needs seats amd needs them badly. The Booster lad ies 5s the proper organisation to! "Siurclhase and ca.re for them and to'! Have~fu'l control of them. Bk?

I*' AN INTERESTING LETTEI Iowa. "V Dear mamma and papa: We recedved yoor letter to-night and was very glad tojget ti. We are getting along fine. Had a fine rain last night and to-day is as bright as you please. We are quite busy getting ready to come home. I forgot to tell you in tl last letter that we are build ing a barn on our place 28 by 32 ft. wdth a hay loft above. We have the L.mler hauled and are no$r rea- dy fcr the carpenter. We got o.ur threshing done at last. I thought we never would get thiougli. The threshers are very busy thdB fall es they have such a big run.. There is lots of grain to be threshed yet. I will tell you how our gradn turn ed out. Our wheat Jgnt 21 bushel per acre and oats 30 bu. per acre. Ouj corn is fine but we cut it all as we only had in 7 acres so cannot tell you how it turned out. We are sowing our fall wheat now Will have 40 acres when it ds adl in. We only sow ome-half bu. to the acre so you see most of our crop is profit. We are having our "grain hauled now as it :s $1.00 per bushel. Oats is 60 cents but we won't sell many as we will farm quite hea vy next year and we need most of it for feed. Land iis getting as scarce as Hen's teeth out here and is bloom ing every day. How is everybody out there? Ev* eryone cut her© is O. K. Uncle Lews threshed Saturday and liis crop turned out fine. Bud Warde folks are well and send tlieir regards. Dolly ia getting fatter every day. She tipped^ tbe scales 140 l^s. and she says she can jump thrti a hoop two feet in diameter and I can, beat that slightly. We are going to Sterling Si&tur day and come back Sunday. Wo want to get seme fruit to nation of what you s§gr df all else is clear they will issue you a cer tificate to vaccinate your own herd. The tdsme was so short that we oould not make a general notice of it through the Journal last week, but we are authorized to say that the next demonstration will be the last Wednesday in this (October) month. There should be 100 far mers or more from this County at tend the demonstration at that time, and there is mo doubt will be. The state of Iowa is certainly do ing its part to eliminate this ter rible disease from the state, and it is to be hoped that the farmers who are the losers by the disease will cooperate with the state dm its eradiction and oure. 1 EOUND IN HIDING Hanua Ilanisen the hum girl who was adopted by Mr. and Mrs. Han sen of Exira hen a baby, and after the death of Mr. Hansen sent by the nut.horit.ies of Exira to the Orphan's Homo at Elk Horn, and who this sprii'g was sent to the County Home, and escaped, was found Thursday about three fourths miles w-^st of town, sitting by a large tree, here she had been in hid'ing.

He suffered great agony from the collision in his back and chest. One of his legs was paralized amd the other partially so. He was taken to Omaha by one of the physicdans where a close ex amination was held under an X ray. It was found by the X-ray that his back was broken.. The Manning people, true to great generosity in such cases im mediaely started a petition for fi nancial assistance and a satisfact ory amount was realized so that the young man will have the best of care. The latest report says his oon d:t'on is bad. He is a worthy young man and has a host of f.lends. CLEANED HIS STUMP UNB Villi D1MII1E J! Drew xjonakts who recently pur chased the 01 ty Mendenholl 'farm In Lincoln twp. Crawford county is using novel amd up-to-date meth od of clearilmg his land. He purchased dynamite in large quantities and wit.h the assistance of a giamt piowdsr expert, is blowing large stumps clear of the ground. The land he is clearing was pur chased cheap on ac:ount of stumps and he is thus making it rapidly worth $125. an acre. There are several thousands of acres in Audubon County that could and ought to be eared in the same manner. THE ROY SCOUTS EACT The boy scouts of Charles Qity are makng cagis for the protec tion of the birds through the win ter. It hss bean found that the birds do not emigrate south dn the winter because of the cold but because of the failure of the food supp'y. A benevolent gentleman, E. S. Marrener by name furnishes the lumber and wire for the cages, each of which will hold enough food for 100 birds, and the boy scouts are making them. They are construct ed in a short time and it is pdauned to have a large number. Late, when food begins to fail they will fasten them to the trees and food will b& placed in them. The cages furnish protection from storms also and it.is thought that mai of the birds will take ad vantage of them and conclude to and Dodlie. spend the winter in the vicinity. 7-r\ rfr ..
