M" .-"••/ •"-1 il ml YY*5 2.00 The German Fleet. Copenhagen, Sept. 30, via London.— Travelers arriving here from the Kiel canal say that the Germans are busy placing new guns, which the Krupp works has been experimenting with for the past two years, on the armored cruisers and dreadnoughts. The canal is described as being crowded with warships, including the largest battleships. The arsenals are busy day and night, and long trains ar- rive continuously with immense guns The Dixie Flyer will leave Chicago for the ships. The Germans are reported as de claring that the whole fleet will soon be ready to fight. The above statement, if true, to gether with the fact that the second line of battleships were not in com mission at the time when the war broke out, adds credence to the ofB cial German statements that the war was not of their seeking.—Ed.

IMPORTANCE OF AMENDMENT NO. 9 Great Advantages Will Accrue to Peo ple of the State With Proper Care of Forests. Excellent home markets will be es tablished by the passage of No. 9 the State Forests* Amendment, which is to be submitted to your vote Novem ber 3rd. This measure provides that all state forest land unfit for tillage be used as State Forests, to be man aged according to forestry principles. Millions of dollars are lost annually by selling non-tillable state lands with the timber they contain to lumbermen who cut the trees without regard to young growth or reforestation allow ing the land to lie idle. Our farmlands employ many men. The forest lands can be made to do likewise. Germany employs one steady man for every one hundred acres of forests. By managing these State Forest lands according to business like prin ciples as provided in the Ninth Amendment they will be made to pro duce a perpetual crop of timber. The pine forests will be treated like farm crops. They will be harvested and re planted. Many men will be employed in handling such a "tree farm." The cutting, manufacturing and planting of the forest crop will require steady labor. Happy homes will be established, industries revived and prosperous communities will be built up. They and their families will re quire food, clothing and supplies. The men and horses demand thousands of dollars worth of meat, flour, vege tables, hay, grain and supplies. Sur rounding agricultural districts will find a permanent home market, where they can sell their produce. Attracted by good home markets, nearby agri cultural districts now unsettled will be developed. Roads will be built, schools started and in addition the State will make a handsome profit an nually to the School Fund. As two thirds of the Forest land affected by this amendment is forested, revenue will be immediate and the forests will be self-sustaining from the beginning. Such will be the results of manag ing our non-agricultural State Forest lands on business like principles. No. 9 the State Forests Amendment stands for good business. Not to vote at all is to vote against it. Remember this November 3rd. Casey-Daugherty. A marriage of interest to a great many Willmar people took place in St. Patrick's church at Kandiyohi, Wednesday morning, Sept. 30, at nine o'clock, when Miss Florence Daugh erty, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John F. Daugherty, became the bride of Mr. Patrick L. Casey of Litchfield. Promptly at nine o'clock, the bridal party entered the church to the soft strains of music played by Mrs. D. V. Downs, and were met at the altar by Rev. Fr. C. McDevitt of Willmar, who read the marriage service. During high mass, Miss Kathryn Casey of Glenwood, cousin of the bride very beautifully sang, "Ave Maria," and "When Song is Sweet." The bride was gowned in brocaded white satin' over pink silk, and carried lilies of the valley and bride's roses, with a full veil. Miss Daugherty was attended by Miss Marjorie Daugherty of Willmar who wore green crepe and carried sweet peas. Mr. Casey was attired in the conventional black and was at tended by his brother, Walter Casey. After the ceremony, the bridal couple went to the home of the bride where a wedding breakfast was served to the immediate family of the groom and bride, after which the young peo ple left on the afternoon train for their new home at Litchfield where the groom is a prosperous young farm er. Miss Daugherty Is well known here, having graduated from the Will mar high school and for the past few years has taught school in different districts in this county. The young couple have the best wishes of a host of friends for a happy future.—Con tributed. Why a Lyceum Course in Willmar. Because it is uplifting to the child as well as the adult. Our children will be tomorrow what our town applauds today. Our great business is to popu larize the right things. Whatever we applaud, we will have more of that—if the wrong is popular, we will have more of wrong if the right, we will have more right. Our preachers can preach, do right, do right, but unless the majority of the citizens get out and root for the right, your town will will be far from doing right. Lyceum courses have come to join the hands of the preacher, the teacher and the parent to root for the right. When the crowd of best citizens gather to hear a governor, an author, an ex plorer, a scientist, an interpreter of literature, a musician or entertainer, the crowd is saying to every young person in the most emphatic way: HERE ARE YOUR HEROES AND STANDARDS OF ATTAINMENT.— Contributed.

HINTS TO AUTO OVVNER8 Suggestions for Care of Tires When Not In Use During Winter Months. Mr. L. Greenwald, head of the Serv ice Department of the Firestone Tire & Rubber Company, suggests the fol lowing precautions to auto owners: When you are through with your car for the season, jack it up, remove the tires from the rims, and wash them well with soap and water. Be sure to remove all traces of oil or grease. The rims too, should be sandpapered to remove all traces of rust accumu lation and painted with liquid graph ite. For the best protection, the tires should be wrapped in clean cloth or paper and laid flat in a cool, dark place. If possible, store tires where they will not be subjected to extremes of heat and cold. A temperature of 40 to 60 degrees is most favorable for avoiding chemical action in the rub ber. All Firestone tires are encased in heavy paper at the factory, by a spec ial wrapping machine, to protect them from the deteriorating influence of light until such time as they are ready for use. A very effective way is to wrap them in strips of muslin or burlap, about three inches wide. Wind these strips around the tire and have each wrap lap over about one inch. Inner tubes should be deflated, and placed in a box, or wrapped in a clean cloth or paper, and laid flat in a dark place with no weight resting on them. If they are left in the tubes, they should be partly inflated. Never let the weight of the car rest on the tires when laying up for the winter months. Jack it up and allow the axles to rest on supports. The constant weight on one part of the tire will cause it to flatten at that point, creasing the fabric and greatly weakening it. If the tires are left on the rims, they should be thoroughly cleaned and repaired and only enough air pressure left in the tubes to keep them well rounded. This prevents them from wrinkling or cracking. While the car is not in use is an opportune time to have necessary re pairs made on tires. It is the repair shops slack season and, as you are in no hurry for the return of the tires, they can devote all the time necessary for your job and do it right. Examine tires well and have all cuts in the tread extending through to the fabric, repaired. By following these suggestions, you can add many miles to the life of your tires.
