the Boosters club which has proven
such a potent factor in the uccom
plishment of things worth while for
the town the past month has In no
measure spent its enthusiasm or re
sourcefulness in doing things. To the
contrary, its program for future work
embraces some notable Improvements
for the town. For a number of years,
there has been a realization of the
great need of a public park, and lead
ers of the club have come to a deter
mination to secure one before property
becomes so high that it will be diffi
cult to buy the land for one. Conse
quently, there is a disposition to pur
chase the block east of the post office
owned by the public school and park
it for that purpose in the immediate
future. Plans are also already outlined
for beautifying the park in a thor
oughly modern way. Phases of the
contemplated beautifying involve the
planting of shade trees, the planting of
various flowers, the installment of
fountains, and the construction of
cement walks diagonally across the
park. Early action along these lines is
Stock and hay shipments continue to
be made from this place with about
the same regularity and of the same
proportion . Seldom a day passes with
out a carload of hay going out or a
carload or more of cattle cr hogs. A
carlad of hay went out Saturday and
last, week a number of cars of hogs
were shipped. Few, If any, sections of
the state excel this as a stock and
grain raising section, and the wonder
ful prosperity of the farmers of the
country tributary to this place and up
on which It draws for Its trade Is to be
attributed to the fact that these two
industries constitute the basis of its
vast volume of business which has be
come a matter of statewide comment.
Throughout its extent, farmers are in
an easy financial condition. The great
improvements being made upon
farms and the • ast number of silos to
be observed confirm the Doasted pros
perity and progress of the entire

Middleton, May 1.—With an Influx

ready one of proportions here and can
be so developed that It will bring no
small amount of money Into local cir
culation, which of course would give a
strong impetus to local trade. It would
mean ready money for the farmers of
