Why not start now—to day, and for ever rid yourself of Stomach trouble and indigestion? A dieted stomach gets the blues and grumbles. Give it a good eat, then take Pape's Diapepsin to start the digestive juices working. There will be no dyspepsia or belching of Gas or eructations of undigested food no feeling like a lump of lead in the stomach or heartburn, sick head ache and Dizziness, and your food will not ferment and poison your breath with nauseous odois. Pape's Diapepsin costs only 50 cents for a large case at any drug store here, and will relieve the most obstinate case of indigestion and Upset Stomach in five minutes. There is nothing else better to take Gas from the Stomach and cleanse the stomach and intestines, and besides, one triangule will digest and prepare for assimilation into the blood all your food the same as a sound, healthy stomach would do it. When Diapepsin works your stom ach rests—gets itself in order, cleans up—and then you feel like eating when you come to the table, and what you eat will do you good. Absolute relief from all stomaoh Misery is waiting for you as soon as you decide to begin taking Diapepsin Tell your druggist that you want Pape's Diapepsin, because you want to be thoroughly cured of Indigestion. Good Words for Kull. Editor Bishop of the New Hampton Tribune, has paid the Iowa legislature a visit, and has the following to say ot Howard countys representative: "Representative Kull of Howard county, who lives just over the line north of Saude, is a farmer, but he has the trim, well groomed appearance of a prosperous business man. At home he is a practical farmer who slops hogs, milks cows aid engages in all kinds of farm work. In the legis lature he is an active, influential mem ber of the House and in the "Cherokee Strip," which means the Democratic side. We believe he is a good sort of a fellow to know .and hope he will find hiB way over here to New Hampton some day." For Sale or Rent. Our store building and fixtures in Schley. Enquire of MALEK BROS SHALL CRESCO PAVE? Expected Objections Are Made—A Letter from Independence. On next Monday evening the council men will act on the propositions of paving and curbing Elm street and one block east and west from Elm street on Railroad and Park streets. As was expected, some opposition has developed among the property owners on Elm street. The first cost of paving is admittedly somewhat ex pensive, and it is natural that some should seek excuses for avoiding the cost to them. The council expected opposition. There has been opposition to our water works system, opposition to granting franchises for telephones and electric lighting, objections to building our new school houses and to our sewerage system and all, save the telephone franciiise, opposed because of its 2ost. But has not the wisdom of those who favored these improvements been en dorsed by the results in every instance. As we understand the matter, the objectors do not claim that paving is not needed or desirable, but wish it postponed, or make the claim that the whole city should bear the expense of paving. Those who belong to the first class say, "wait till the Dan Patch air line reaches Cresco and make it stand its share of the expense." The PLAIN DEALER earnestly wishes for the build ing of the electric road, and believes that within the course of a few years Cresco will have the Dan Patch or some other electric road, but it also believes that at its present rate of progress—30 miles of grade in two years—that Cres co can not afford to delay paving until the Dan Patch reaches the city. Those who say that the city should pay all the cost are simply asking for continuation of the plan that has been followed for all the years of the incorporation of Cresco—taxing the city for the improvement of the busi ness streets. With the exception of some very good road work and tiling during the past few years on some of the quick sand streets of the town, but little work has been done on the streets in tha residence district, while some years nearly every dollar of road tax and a large slice of general fund has been spent on the business streets. It is true that paving is a consider able expense but it is practically a permanent improvement and enhances to the extent of its cost the property contiguous, and with its cost extended, if desired, over a period of seven years gives the property owners benefits worth far more yearly than the cost of paving as it falls due. Opposition to paving is always found, but it is never introduced in a city without being rapidly extended. De corah property owners bitterly resisted in the courts payment for the first paving in their city. The next year, property owners on other streets asked for paving. At Austin, injunction pro ceediggs were resorted to, now their paved streets are the pride and boast of the city. Paving will give an air of prosperity and enterprise to Cresco that will be worth much to the city, and will be an improvement the economy of which will be seen in future years. Moreover, the money put out in this improvement is principally used to pay for labor, sand, crushed rock, etc., and will be a stimulant to Cresco business and an aid to its laboring men. In connection with Cresco's paving proposition, we append the following letter dated Feb. 24th inst., from R. G. Swan, Mayor of Independence to one of Cresco's business men in re sponse to an inquiry concerning the cost, advantages and economy of pav ing in that city: "In reply to yours of yesterday, in reference to the advantages of paving in our city, would say that three years ago we let our first contract, which amounted to about $17,000, and I can assure you that it was in the face of the worst kind of opposition, but the council voted it in. The next year we entered into another contract of about $13,000, and last fall made a contract with the Turner Co., of Des Moines for a $20,000 contract which will be put in as soon as the weather permits the gravel is now on the ground for the work, and they commenced to unload the brick this week. When this job is completed, we think we will have one of the best paved towns of its size in Iowa, and we are all proud of the work that has been done, and I do not think that today you could induce any ot the property owners to go back to the old style of streets, in fact a number of property owners have expressed them selves as willing for us to pave the residence streets in front of their prop erty any time we want to. The pav ing is kept very clean at a very small expense, we bought a street sweeper and sweep about twice a week, and sell most of the sweepings when we deliver and give it away where the parties do their own hauling, so that the actual cost is only nominal, and occasionally we turn the fire hose on the paving, which serves to flush the mains and washes the streets absolutely clean and at the same time destroys and gets away with all germs. I might say that when we let our second contract, we had a street car line which was on the streets we desired to pave and the car company found that it would cost them nearly $2000 to pay the paving tax between the rails, and that they could not possibly stand the expense. mm We did not stop our work on that account and the car line was taken up and the paving went on. If the city council of Cresco has any PLUCK, PROGRESS, PERSEVERANCE AND PATRIOTISM IN POLITICS CRESCO, HOWARD COUNTY, IOWA. FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 2«, 1909 backbone they will certainly order it in and I am sure they .will never regret their action, and again it is only a mat ter of a short, tune when some other council will do it, and get the credit of doing something for the city they live in. The advantages of paving are cleanliness, economy, in that they do not have to be graded and constantly a source of expense and a great satis faction to the public who use the streets. Yours truly, R. G. SWAN, Mayor. THE CORN CONTEST. List of Awards at (lie stitute. The boy's contest was somewhat disappointing as only four took part but Mr. Ayery spoke a good word for those that did take part and said that they did as well or better than any class he had ever had and we hope another year if the same privilege is given to them that there will be a large class because it is a good study for the young men and it is getting to an age where man must farm with his brain as well as with his hands. Prizes were awarded as follows: White.—Volney Vance, first Ralph Doolittle, second Henry Bronner, third. Yellow.—Ralph Doolittle, first Richard Bigalk, second Volney Vance, third. Calico.—Volney Vance, first, no com petition. Boys' judging contest.—John Daly, first, scholarship, score 80 per cent Ralph Doolittle, second, $2.00, score 78 per cent Volney Vance, third, $1.00, score 71 per cent Richard Bigalk, fourth, $.75, score 61 per cent. Applies to Cresco. Council Bluffs, Iowa, Feb. ID—Spec cial: The Southwestern Iowa Editorial association in sepsiou here today, pass ed a resolution censuring the national government for the practice of solicit ing the printing of envelopes at a price less than the work can be done by the country printers. It was stated that these solicitations were sent through the mail franked, a feature of theprac tice which came in for consideration. Press Report. This reminds us. Last week we re» ceived through our box at the post office a circular, without postage and from the office of some Assistant Post master General, setting forth the ad vantages and the cheapness of govern ment stamped envelopes. The circular was in all probability placed in the box of practically every person who uses a considerable number of envelopes dur ing the year. The plea set up in the opening paragraph of the circular that the use of stamped envelopes aids the post office department and improves the service" may be true. We can see no good reason, however, for the post master at. New Hampton turning him self into a solicitor and pushing the business in competition with local prin ters. The distribution of this circular may have been required by the depart ment and in that case no one can find fault. The soliciting for business which the local postoffice officials engage in, however, is open to criticism, and rais es the question whether it would not aid the department and1 improve the service" if a parcels post were adopt ed so that a farmer might have a wagon or a harvesting machine deliver ed to him through the mails. The printing of envelopes for the entire town would not amount to a large revenue for the printers in New Hamp ton, but the policy which appears to be in vogue of having government agents act as solicitors in competition with the printers of this and every other town is wrong. If a community of interests exists here, the s|ogan to "trade at home" applies to pur contention that the envelopes sttould be bought at home.—New Hampton Tribune. OBITUARY. DOW.

U/^ *'•CV 1 Farmers In- Mr. Avery's talk on corn was both interesting and profitable it coming from an experienced man he owns and handles 240 acres. He explained how it should be picked and handled after it was gathered, also his method of test ing it. It was similar to what we had heard before, but such talk coming from a practical farmer sets others to thinking and a great many to acting along his lines. Also his talk on the silo and ensilage was interesting. Plain Dealer. FARMERS' INSTITUTE. Report of the 1 Recent Meeting Held in Cresco. The Institute opened Friday after noon with the ladies' program. The principal features of this program were the paper by Mrs. Amos Barker and the talk on Domestic Science by Miss Luella Kilbourne of Mason City. Mrs. Barker's subject, "Boys on the Farm" was very ably and profitably treated. Miss Kilbourne showed a wide and thorough knowledge of her subject and aroused an intense interest on the part of her hearers. Mrs. O'Malley's solo was certainly a treat to all music lovers. The ladies of the Farmers' Institute may well feel proud of the intelligence and talent displayed in their success ful program. The Friday evening session was well attended. Our High School Orchestra favored us with two selections which not only sustained their former reputa tion but brought them new honors. Mr. Brown the chairman of the meet ing characteristically and cleverly in troduced Ex-Mayor Lvons, who by his words at once created a cordial, hospi table atmosphere. We may well be proud of our ex-mayor who heartily as sured the institute of the co-operation of the business men and citizens of Cresco. Mr. Charles Pergler then gave a scholarly response filled with many helpful suggestions to the institute. Mrs. Scripture entertained us with a humorous selection rendered in her usual charming manner. Next the audience listened with pleasure to the Cresco male quartet who sang several songs with their well known musical ability. Dr. Bennett of Upper Iowa Univer sity gave the address of the evening, The Making of American Citizens out of our Boys and Girls." Dr. Bennett is a polished, broad minded speaker, and his address a delightful combina tion of seriousness and humor was en joyed by all who were privileged to listen. His plea for the cultivation of our boys into progressive American citizens, strong in body and thoughtful and sound in mind impressed his hear ers deeply. May it be our pleasure to have Dr. Bennett with us in this capac ity again! Mrs. Davenport's paper, "A trip to Bohemia" showed much careful thought and it was a privilege to listen to it. The program as a whole was exr tremely interesting and instructive, a credit to the Farmers' Institute. Saturday morning's session was given over to Mr, C. S. Nichols who discussed "Road Improvement." Mr. Nichols has made a special study of this subject and his speech was filled with valuable information. Saturday afternoon the institute was addressed by Mr. A. M. Avery who spoke on "Sorn." Mr Avery was very familiar with his subject and his talk was well received. Dr. Aretas E. Kepford who is sent out by the state to inform the people of the danger of this disease, tuberculosis, which is becoming so alarmingly wide spread. He spoke well and earnestly, urged the people to employ every pre caution against this plague. This closed the annual session of the Farmers' Institute of Howard county. School Officers Oppose a Change A meeting for the discussion of the proposed new school law of Iowa was held by Winnesheik County school of ficers at the Court house, Decorah, on Wednesday, Feb. 17th. County Superintendent Reque called the meet ing to order. Mr. Geo. Phister was elected chairman. A digest of the pro posed new law was read. In the dis cussion that followed it was shown that there was but one opinion regarding the school bill before the legislature. The school officers were unanimously opposed to any change at present. The following resolutions were adopted: Whereas, The proposed radical change in the school laws of Iowa having been laid before the public very recently and therefore almost entirely unknown in scope and effect to the school officers and electors, Resolved, That we the school officers of Winnesheik county, respectfully ask and advise the Winnesheik county members of the Iowa State legislature to strenuously oppose any such radical changes as are embodied in the bill recommended by the educational com mission in their report to the Thirty third general assembly until the said proposed law shall have been before the public long enough to be thorough ly understood. Resolved, That we favor the repeal of the present law whereby the State Superintendent has charge of the tea chers examinations. Be it further Resolved, that the County Superintendent have full charge of the examination of the teachers in the county.—Decorah Journal. Sale Postponed.

Few people here know that you can cure that dread American disease, Rheumatism, with just common, every day drugs found in any drug store. The prescription is so simple that any one can prepare it at home at small cost. It is made up as follows: Get from auv good prescription pharmacy Fluid Extract Dandelion, one-half ounce Compound Kargon, one ounce Compound Syrup Sarsaparrilla, three ounces. Mix by shaking in a bottle and take in teaspoonful doses after each meal and at bedtime. These are all simple ingredients, making an ab solutely harmless home remedy at lit tle cost. Rheumatism, as every one knows, is a symptom of deranged kidneys. It is a condition produced by the failure of the kidneys to properly filter or strain from the blood the uric acid and other matter, which, if not eradicated, either in the urine or through the skin pores, remains iu the blood, decomposes and forms about the joints and muscles, causing the untold suffering and de formity of rheumatism. This prescription is said to be a splendid healing, cleansing and invig orating tonic to the kidneys, and gives almost immediate relief in all forms of bladder and urinary troubles and back ache.
