the blues and grumbles. Give it a
good eat, then take Pape's Diapepsin

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

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

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
way over here to New Hampton
some day."

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
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.
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
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.

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

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.

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

Report of the
Recent Meeting Held in
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
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
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.
