A tarantula was found in a bunch of bananas in the iStier store at AU lantic last Friday, and .the clerk force was jumping sideways until it was safely corked up in a bot tle. This fear of the tarantula is kin to the fear of the rattle snake and has come down to us through the ages, like the superstition of the black cat crossing the road, the blood of a "black hen /being a cure for tuberculosis, looking over the right shoulder at the new moon, knocking om wood—your head of course, to prevent a change of luck, etc., and likei thend1 ils simply a su perstition. They are poisonous, of course, but not enough so. to cause death unless there is an unusual condition of the physical system, such as a weak heart, or epilepsy. I In such cases, they are about as it able to cause death, as would say three cups of tea to the non-user of stimulants who is in a similar physical condition lor a glass whis key to the average non-user., NEW WASTE PAPER BOXES Twenty-four boxes in which the waste paper of the city will be de posited im the down town district have been delivered by the makers to City Engineer Spetman.

They will be found on all im portant down town corners and in the c?.nter of the business blocks. ,% The boxes .were purchased by tlir Alderman Stone. —Council Bluffs Nonpariel. IHAW THROUGH AT wwc io fmni An item an. one of the Atlantic paper states that Harry Thaw and party passed through that city last Thursday enroute to San Francisco. This was a mistake for on that very day ,he was visiting with his old-time friend, Ex-governor Bois, at his home in the eastern part of the state. lAs we understand it, Thaw has been declared sane by one court, and is now out on bond awaiting the deciision of the higher court, and while we are absolutely neutral in the case we feel that it is hardly square for an) editor to take such a rap at him. A sane man would not leave the River to River road for any other across" the state. 1KVS $,• IWEST PHALEN SICK For several weeks Mrs Grace Rab son—Westphalem has been a very sick lady at the home of her moth er, Mrs. Watterson. It was first re ported that Mrs. Westphalen and husband, after their marriage a few weeks ago, had moved in apart ments with Mr. Westphalens sister, (Mis. John Johnson, which was mistake as the young people had rented and furnished a lovely home in a popular part of the city eaBt of the park. They were anlmging the furnish ings of the new 'home when Mrs. Westphalen was suddenly taken ill and for a time her life was dispair ed of. Shehas been constantly under the doctors car.e siu 3 however, and although very weak there is a certainty of her improvment, at this writing. Her many friends will be pleased to hear of her convalesence. CITY SUED FOR DAMAGES J.. T. Lewis has filed the papers in a suit which he brings, against the. City of Atlantic, for injuries which he sustained in the sarly morning hours of March 16th, 1915, whale employed -as night clerk at the Pullman hotel.

M. Boormani is the at toorney for the plaintiff, AUTOMOBILE SHOW AT IOWA STATE FAIR. A feature of the Iowa State F'air and Exposition this year which will inter est pretty nearly everybody regardless of "race, color or previous conditions of servitude" is the automobile show. Already space reservations have been made for exhibition purposes by every dealer in Des Moines and a good* many outside. This means that the show will include practically every make of auto that is manufactured in the entire country. Everything that is new or novel or late in auto building will be on exhibition. The man who is thinking of buying a car this summer or fall, possibly "after harvest or corn picking," will find the show of great value in that it will afford the best kind of an opportunity to compare the various makes, one with another. MANY IMPROVEMENTS AT IOWA STATE FAIR GROUNDS. Those of Iowa's citizens who by an nual pilgrimages to the State Fair and Exposition have kept tab on the changes and improvements from year to year will find that the march of progress ha not been interfered with, nor has it been idling by the wayside since the fair of 1914. The first thing that will meet the critical eye of the visitor who enters the grounds by way of the Rock Island gates is the new sheep pavilion, erected the present summer. It stands inside the gates, directly across Rock Island avenue from the swine pavilion and south of the big horse barn. It is of the same general plan of architecture as the •nvine pavilion and machinery hall, built of brick and steel, and is a ma terial improvement to the southwest corner of the grounds. A GREAT FAIR. The Iowa State Pair to be held In Des Moines Aug. 25 to Sept. 3 this year gives promise of being the great est fair ever held in the state of Iowa. Effort has been made to increase the exhibits in the several departments and to make every department better and larger and thus more instructive than ever before and results so tar have been met with success on every 10:00 2:30 3:00 7:30/ 8:00 1 .r 4 5 -i 2:30 3:00 7:30 8:00 The sport of harnen racing is as old as the hills. As far back as his '.ory has been chronicled in the as sociations of men and ecruines trials and contests of speed have been a popular pastime, enjoyed by all, re gardless of race, color or clime. Horse racing is frequently referred to as the "sport of kings." Just why it should be so credited and set apart aa the special privileged enjoyment of those individuals actively engaged in what the late Mark Twain was pleased to term "the king business," is not clear to ye editor. At any rate there has never been a time when the wearers of (he crown and ermine have ibeen able to monopolize it, and it is today, as it always has been, a sport of the people, and as carried on under twentieth century methods is truly enjoyable. An agricultural fair, whether great or small, without a speed program for the horses would he as incomplete as an afternoon tea without the fair sex, or a circus without clowns. The program arranged for the Iowa State Fair and Exposition, August 25 to Sep tember 3, is one of greater range and variety than any herettofore enjoyed by patrons of this big institution, it 'I iv.v.
