HONDA"? THE ROCK ISLAND ARGUS MAY 10, 1920. 1 :::.::.:issioii COUSE BUYING 5 REVIVES CORN . Chicago, May 10. Notwithstand ing that . the corn market today opened somewhat easier, strength soon developed as a result of com mission house buying. A big ad vance in Canadian wheat prices seemed to be more or less respon sible for renewed bullish sentiment tegarding corn. Trade, however, was not large. Opening prices, which ranged from c decline to Vc advance with July 1.71 to 1.71 and Sep tember 1.60 "to 1.61'A were fol lowed by a moderate general sag and then by decided upturns all around. Oats swayed with corn. After opening c to c lower, includ ing July at 91c to 91c, the mar ket scored a quick rally. Provisions were dull and weak. The market lacked any , aggressive support. "Trouble in obtaining corn here available for immediate use led subsequently to further pronounced, gains, and so likewise did renewed talk of an Argentine embargo on wheat. The close was firm, le to 4c net higher, with July $1.74Tg td $1.7S'8, and September, 1.62 to Jl.63. Chicago Futures. . . May 10. 1920. . Wheat Open. High. Low.

Smallpox is prevalent in the village and last week every child in school was ordered vacci nated. Some of the children and even members of tbe faculty flatly re fused to comply with the order. Of necessity the Silvia schools have been closed and will remain closed all week in all probability unless the situation is changed following a meeting of the school officials to night. It was not stated today what action the authorities would take to compel compliance to the state ruling, but it will be drastic no doubt as Dr. C. C. Windner of the state board of health says the law must be complied to "to the let ter." Dr. Windner said: "State prose cution means arrest under state warrant grand Jury action, and con viction means a fine of $200. a six months' jail sentence or both. Phy sicians who fail to report cases of the disease or suspected cases will be dealt with severely. The mutiny started following action taken by the state authori ties ordering the vaccination of all unvaccinated children in the schools as well as men in the fac tories. The state board of health representatives reviewed the situa tion with the city authorities and after a long conference Saturday afternoon in the office of Mayor G. F. Johnson, asserted that an im mediate change in program must be wrought or the state would be forced to invoke such prohibitive orders that the city will be ser iously handicapped. Factory men are given one week to become in oculated. Should a case be discov ered in the factory at the end of this time every man wno nas r,eenactual work of the jmplements on exposed must be vaccinated if he has not already been since every exposure is regarded as a potential case. His failure to become vacci nated will mean that he is in dan ger at any time of being thrown out of work for a period of 20 days should a case of the disease break tout in the section of the factory where he is working. ENROLLMENT AT HIGH SCHOOL TO START TOMORROW Those who expect to attend the Moline high school next year are asked to register tomorrow. En rollments will be accepted in all classes and work of organization for the 10-month term will be well advanced before the present semes ter ends. Record enrollment of freshmen students was indicated from preliminary grammar school figures. All classes promise to be unusually large and adjustment will be rendered much more difficult Early registration is, therefore, greatly desired. School enrollment for the first time passed the 100 mark during the present semester. One of the new couirses for next year will be appreciation of music, E. P. Nutting, principal of the Mo line high school, said today. Appre ciation of music was begun this semester and the success of the course encouraged further work in a similar line. The extension of the musical work is through the generosity of Mrs. F. G. Allen. East Moline Briefs Arthur Larson of East Moline, former street commissioner has been made inspector of meters by Mayor G. F. Johnson and J. C. Evans was appointed street com missioner. This action probably will be approved by the East Moline city council at its regular meeting next Monday.

Schafer left the city Sunday to attend the Democratic convention in Spring field and attend to other official business. They will be absent sev eral days.

TODAY IN ALEDO ALL IN BUREAU ARE MEMBERS Xerrer Comity Shrepmea's Asso ciation Xade Auxiliary of Farm Organization. Friday evening. May 27, the di-rectors-at-large of the Mercer County Sheepmen's . association met at the offices of the farm bu reau .nd made plans for the mar keting of the Mercer county wool clip for the season of 1920. A con stitution was drawn' up and officers were elected. Under one of the stipulations in the constitution membership in the farm bureau makes any Mercer county sheep man a member of the bheep Men s association. No mem bership fee is charged, but the ex pense of marketing the wool clip is prorated on the basis of the number of pounds of wool sold. Non-farm bureau members will be allowed to pool their wool with the association, but a charge of a frac tion of a cent per poun I will be made to pay for the additional ex pense of work done by the farm bureau. According to the constitution of the organization each township will have a director who will give assistance in assembling the wool for marketing and especially in rendering the report to the offi cers and the farm advisors previ ous to loading. The township di rector will also be a source of in formation for all wool growers in his township relative to the work ing of tbe pool. According to present indications the Mercer county pool this year will be a large one. There are al ready more than twenty thousand pounds consigned to the pool. The exact date for the Rfthering to gether of the wool hasnot been set yet, but the association officers will notify all men who have en tered their produce in time. In discussing the selling o'. the wool to local buyers, Charles Bopes of Perryton township, stated re cently that the wool would be more advantageously sold to the pool. He said: "We can expect me local pool ouyers u pay a handsome price this year but if we eccept it will mean our loss in the future. They would not be willing to give up the busin gs of buying wool so easily. I believe that rath er than accept what looks like a good price for our wool from local buyers we will find it to our ad vantage to pool and take the chances. In these days the pro ducer who is unwilling to wait for his money, knowing that he is to receive from 15 to 25 n cent ad ditional income from his original investment can not expect to re ceive the full value of his product" Dr. P. B. Scott of North Hender son township was elected president of the association. Dr. Scott has had extensive experience in the wool business on ranches or the southwest and last year consigned 5,000 pounds of the Mercer county pool. He was associated with the bureau of animal industry. United States department of agriculture, for 11 years and t" is considered well fitted for the office. The other officers are, vice president M. T. Warwick; treasurer, J. W. Kistler; secretary, P. S. Richey; shipping manager, J. J. Baxter. HUNT EX SOLDIER ; BONUS IS NOT PAID James Beecher Lane, a former soldier who was at one time em ployed in Seaton, is urged to com municate with the Aledo Red Cross.

Lane is known to have left Seaton fol lowing his .application for a sol dier's bonus and went to Orion but no trace can be found of him in that community. NEW RED CROSS OFFICER IS SENT Red Cross officials in the Bay Is land drainage district announced todav that the central division has sent a new representative into New Boston to take charge of the relief work in the flood district Miss Dobson, who has ben in charge of the work, left several days ago for other fields, and a Mr. Burgner of Chicago, is now in charge. TIPPIE'S A BACKSLIDER! AND MERCER COUNTY THE ARGUS IIS Bart Caifeea A I a. iWeoaa. OM aad . TS WlUiaM Metals SPRAY AT ONCE TO GET BENEFIT Few Days' Delay May Cause Loss of Fruit from Savages of In sects, Bicker P. S. Richey, county farm ad visor, stated this morning that crop conditions in Mercer county are about as good as could be ex pected under the circumstances. There is a labor shortage on farms in the county of 25 to 35 per cent according to Mr. Richey. .This, coupled with the cold weath er, has caused a consioerame num ber of farmers to face long delays in getting their fields ready for the chop. Rain is needed at this time, as the heavy rains of the last weeks caused the ground to be packed so hard that with the few days of dry weather the earth has formed Into clods which makes the work of preparing the soil harder than usual. Oats are generally good. Some farmers in the county were late in getting seed in the ground, but the last few days of mild weather have helped wonderfully in getting the crop started. The wheat is in fair condition in most places, with the exception of that which was winter killed on the high spots. Wheat throughout the county looks favor able. Mr. Richey stated there was a considerable loss of clover be cause of winter killing this year, but this need not be serious to the farmers, as soy beans can be sub stituted for the clover crop in many instances. Mr. Richey says it is time for the farmers to use the cluster bud spray on their fruit trees. He said "it probably will be too late after Wednesday. Spraying should be done today." The present spraying is being done to kill the first cur culio brood and other small insects which hatch early. It is absolute ly necessary that the spraying of the fruit trees be done before the blossoms open and and effects will be lost after that time, the small insects having hatched about the same time the buds open. Mr. Richey gives the following solution to be used in spraying ap ple, cherry and plum trees before the buds are opened : One and one half gallons lime sulphur solution to 50 gallons of water, with one pound of arsenic of lead powder. This solution will cover many trees. "This spraying comes at a time when the farmers are very busy, but the time spent in treat ing the trees will more than repay that which is lost from the field," Mr. Richey said. I ALEDO OBITUARY David T. Cunningham. David T. Cunningham, a farmer living near Aledo, died yesterday morning at 5 o'clock following a long illness of complications. Mr. Cunningham bad spent a consider able number of years in this com munity, and was very well known throughout the county. Funeral services will be held tomorrow morning at 9:30 at the home.
