COLFAX RIFLE CLUB SHOOT
Good Scores Made at Fair Ground
Friday and Saturday.
Laat Friday and Saturday, at the
coanty fair ground, the Colfax Rifle Club
held a shoot that attracted more than
local interest.
The first day T. A. Ireland won first
place. Ike Williams, B. F. Copley and
T. B. Mcßride of Moscow tied for second
place, L. Berger of Taeoina winning
third place. The distance whs 50 yards,
muzzle rest with target rifles. Tweive
shooters were present. Ireland put 42
shots in a space that could be covered
by a five cent piece. At the 40 yards
target George Smith of Almota won
second place and A. Richardson of Step
toe got third place.
Saturday's shoot resulted in Meßride
getting first place and Ireland second
position. Ten shooters were in attend
ance that day.
Other meets are on the tapis, and
"blood, lago, blood" (metaphorically
speaking), will surely flow.
For Spirella Corsets call up Mrs. S. E.

A LESSON FROM GERMANY.
Streets Made Subject to Town's
Growth.
A lesson can be taken by any town
from German methods as regards
width of streets In the inner sections
of towns, some of which are many
centuries old. one naturally finds many
narrow streets, but whenever a new
street is laid out ground of sufficient
width is purchased by the community
to suffice for the next 100 years, tak
ing into account increase of traffic.
This seems for the first years like
an extravagance to purchase more
property than is Immediately needed,
but in practice this is not true, for the
street is laid out with a width at first
required, as well as the sidewalks,
while the remaining ground is rented
to the house owners to be utilized for
front pardons.
This method is required by law; oth
erwise they (the owners) could not ob
tain the license for building, and by
this method the city administration
receives a considerable sum for this
apparently waste space. The roads
thus look pretty, and the ground is
available at any time whenever in
crease of traffic requires widening of
streets. In England and other con
servative countries the property is
bought of a width sufficient for pres
ent needs, and when, several years
later, the thoroughfare has to be wid
ened additional space must be pur
chased at an excessive cost, as in the
meantime the value of property has
greatly increased.

MUNICIPAL SKATING RINK.
Dubuque. la.. Furnishes One For the
Pleasure of Its Inhabitants.
The city council of Dubuque. la..
Las voted to establish a free munici
pal skating rink and coasting ground
The rink will be located in the bar
bor, which is within live minutes' walk
of the business center of the city. The
ice will be kept in condition, shaved.
flooded and tree from snow, and the
crowds will be under supervision
Light will be maintained, and there
will be Bhanties where skaters may go
to adjust their skates and per warm
A special council committee acting
xvitb the chief of police will have
charge of the coasting ground. Suit
able hills will be selected where clust
ers may enjoy themselves without dan
ger and always with proper police
supervision.
Novel Plan to Light Streets.
Kniphtstown. imi., is trying a novel
plan to light the streets. The electric
light station is a municipal plant, and
free current for one porch light is fur
nished all consumers who will provide
and maintain the required lamp. The
dark places between corners in the
residence districts are now made
bright.
FEATHERS AND EGCiSH fci_l_s.
Bare you ever thought of the enor
mous poultry resources of Uncle Sam
when he so easily meets the great holi
day demand, feeds those preachers ev
ery day in the year and notwithstand
ing raises more fowls each year than
everY
If you are arguing tl I it pays no
better to raise : d i than oth
ers we ask you to note the following:
A nearby farmer raises ordinary tur
keys and this year sold market and
breeding turkeys from the same bunch
at 20 cents ; ■•;■ pound. William .1. Mor
ton of All »nt >v n. Pa.. s.>ld two young
ten pound White Hollands to Laura <;.
Coover of Pittsburg for *■_•:.. or $I.^
per pound.
A baker in Philadelphia pleaded
net guilty to using rots and spots.
The prosecution produced twenty-four
eggs seized at his bakery. They wore
broken, and twenty-three were rotten
and the twenty-fourth of doubtful qual
ity. The evidence against him being
so strong, he changed his plea at once,
but the judge fined him $200 and costs.
Four thousand fowls, consisting of
2,'2Ui) turkeys and the rest geese, ducks
and chickens, were rounded up at Ilat
field. Pa., for the annual Thanksgiving
sale. Most of them were brought from
Maryland and Virginia. Philadelphia
dealers bought in nearly the whole
bunch.
It would be quite interesting to see
a chicken quiz in which judges li
censed by the American Poultry asso
ciation and those not should be lined
up against each other. Rather think
the association would revoke a few
when the examination was through.

Life Saved at Death's Door.
"I never felt so near my grave," writes
W. R. Patterson, of Wellington, Tex , as
when a frightful cough and lung trouble
pulled me down to 100 pounds, in spite
of doctor's treatment for two years. My
father, mother and two eisters died of
consumption, and that I am alive today
is due solely to Dr King's New Discov
ery, which completely cured me. Now I
weigh 187 pounds and have been well
and strong for years.'' Quick, safe, sure,
it's the best remedy on earth for coughs,
colds, lagrippe, asthma, croup, and all
throat and lung troubles. 50c and
$1 00. Trial bottle free. Guaranteed
by all drui'triats.

Thoroughbred Animals and Plants--
Their Great Commercial Value.
"There is as much difference between
thoroughbred and ordinary plants as
between thoroughbred and ordinary an
imals." This etatemeot is made by D.
M. Ferry »fc Co., of Detroit, the greatest
flower and vegetable breeder** in the
country, and appears in the 1911 An
nual Catalogue juet issued. They argue
for the great value and economy of
thoroughbred seeds. "Any fundamental
natural law which applies to animals
applies equally CO plants." A good cow
(i. c a thoroughbred) eats no more than '•
a poor one, but may give twice as much |
butterfat. "Good blood" makes as much j
difference with corn as with cows. But j
thoroughbred plants, like thoroughbred
animals, are not produced in one or two
generatioLS, for no matter how superior
an individual of common origin ma" be,
its progeny are as a rule like the general
run of its anteeedpnts. Hence the need
for seedfoien like I) if. Ferry &('o. They
have experience, tie best pluut breeding I
equipment in the L uited States, and the {
business acumen to only such seeds
as have been bred from the choicest j
stocks for many cent-rations.
1) If. Ferry & Co.'s Seed Annual for)
1911 may be bad free of charge by writ j
ing to them at Detroit, Michigan. It j
contains much of interest for those who |
think.
