"By Products" was the subject taken by President A. B. Storms cf Ames college, for the baccalaureate address delivered yesterday afternoon to the midwinter graduating class of the high school. The large auditorium was filled by the relatives and friends of the graduates. The graduat ing class, consisting of eleven young wo men, occupied seats on the platform with the members of the Board of Education and the faculty of the school. The exer cises were opened with prayer by Rev. James Thomson, pastor of the Congrega tional church, who officiated In place of Rev. Harvey Hostetler of the' Second Pres byterian church, who had been called out of the city. Dr. Storms proved himself a most en tertaining speaker and his subject a most Interesting one. Hla address in part was as follows: It is worth our while to consider that the things which do not enter the tax assess or's lists, or Into the business Inventory, nor get themselves written down as import ant, make up, nevertheless, the major part of the environment and the Interest of life. We men are but poor, clumsy creatures at the best. In our attempted In ventories we leave out the Important things, whereas we ought to keep the mind open for the infinite. We should have an eye for the sunset, and for "The light that was never on land nor sea," an car attuned to the music of the spheres, a soul In tune with the Infinite. It Is a mar velous thing to keep the spirit fresh and free, to be greater than our task, to breathe the atmosphere of freedom In the midst of seeming drudgery. A keen car and a sensitive vision are essential to the intellectual and spiritual alertness and in dependence which will help one ss a man to understand the larger life ot his fellow man. It is ours to enter up to the limit of our powers and our powers are limitless into the world of truth and of beauty In which we live. Every soul Is capable of infinite expansion. Instead of assuming that one man- is a poet one man In 10.000 and another one In 10,000 is a painter, ana another one in 10.000 a composer of music, we should sav'that we are all poets and painters and musicians. It Is ours to grow In knowledge of the truth. It Is some times said In a narrow provincial way, that men win success In proportion as they concentrate all their energies upon one ef fort or line of business, and there Is a sense In which this may be true; but a man ought to be bigger than his task, and he ought to recognize that his soul, his personality, Is of supreme concern. Prac tlcaHy, a man will usually be able, to bring fresher powers and better ability and stronger will to his definite task, what ever it Is, if he has given himself a chance to live in the larger environment outside his workshop. But whether one has a greater or less degree of success In piling up dollars, or In gaining power In the com petitive race, he himself has lived a richer life if he has not shut out the light which comes In upon us from without, and through those windows of the soul through which heaven breaks In upon us. One ought to keep an active intellectual Interest In many serious problems outside his direct business Interest. It- Is not well for the mind to run in one rroove con tinuously. It" Is not well for the results of one's labor and it Is not well for one's strength or peace or happiness. We need perspective. The tendency of nvdern industry to make individual workmen specialists, i adept at doing one thing, a continual repetition, Is a tendency which can only be corrected and the dreadful evil of which can only be avoided by giving the personality a chance for by-play and for varied interests aside from the monotonous task Imposed. The High. School Olee club rendered two hymns and an anthem during the exer cises. . ' The commencement exercises will be held Thursday evening in the auditorium when Dr. Nathaniel Butler of the University of Chicago, will lecture, taking as his sub ject, "Some Ideals in Education." Effort to StrlLc (lot Forfeit. When the Tabor line franchise ordinance I comes up for Its third reading this evening at 'he adjourned meeting of the city coun cil It Is said an effort will be made to have the clause requiring the company to de posit a forfeit of $5,000 stricken out. There will, however, be considerable opposition to this, as several of the aldermen are of the opinion that If the company seeking the franchise really Intends business It will ! work no hardship on it to be required to I deposit such a sum as a guaranty of Its good faith. . Since the ordinance was last before the city council Jt has been learned that in the j city of Onkaloosa a company which was j seeking a similar franchise to that asked i for by the Tabor company here was com- pelled' to deposit a 110,000 forfeit as guar anty of good faith before the olty council would consider the proposition. N. T. Plumbing Co. Te.. 80; night F MI. No General Itcdnctlon. The fact that twenty-one men employed in the Burlington roundhouse and repair shops Saturday were let out gave rise to the report that the company intended reducing its force in this city. That any such move was contemplated by the company was denied by Assistant General Freight and Passenger Agent Davenport ' yesterday. He said: "The men were let go because there was no work for them. Much of the re pairing Is being done at other points on the system and here we receive but few cars which need attention. The men were employed on piecework and their sorvlces were liable to be dispensed with at any time that there was a lack of work. The same is likely to happen at any time and at any division point of the system." All Efforts at Oompromi Baft Failed Up . to the Freient Time.

Mr. Starr, who is a man about 30 years old, created a most favorable Impression by his preaching and manner, and the congregation is anxious that he should become its rector. After the services' Rev. Mr. Btarr met with the vestry, which renewed its invita tion for him to assume the rectorship of St. Paul's parisrs and church. He stated that he was much pleased with the greeting extended him, but that before deciding to accept the call he would have, to consult his wife. He promised to acquaint the vestry of his decision at the earliest date possible. , ' t Ogdan Hotet Rooms . with or without board; steam heat; free bath; public par lor.

The outlook for the city primary election to nominate a republican candidate for mayor of Des Moines on Monday Is bad. From latest Indications and Judging by the an tics and gyrations of the oppoalng candi dates and their managers there will he two primary elections, or rather a division with two sets of polling places, open for the reception of tickets. Efforts to patch up peace and prevent this have been made even today and "will be made tomorrow before the polls open, but such efforts have been In progress for two weeks and some times with appearance of success, and so it will not be known until the day is well advanced and much of the voting done whether or not there will be a divided primary election. The fight became so bit ter and both sides so determined on win ning at all hasards that two full sets of election officers were Selected and hired and booths provided by two separate com mittees, each one claiming to have full authority to act. This state of affairs but slightly -Indicates the determination of the politicians and the character of the warfare which has beefl waged since 'the first of the year when the date of the primary was first fixed. It has been the bitterest and in some respects the most reprehensible 'campaign in the history of the city. All will be glad when It is done, if the result is such that it will be ao qulesced in by the party leaders. The fight has come squarely between ex Mayor John MacVlcar and ex-Sheriff George Mattern. At the outset two others were in the race, Mayor Brenton and Police Judge Sllvala. The latter withdrew be fore the date for the primary was fixed. After the campaign was well in progress Brenton was forced off the track and, Mat tern substituted, chiefly because of a de. sire that if the administration is success ful it should be made use of for the in fluence on congressional matters. Mac Vlcar was a Prouty man and Brenton was noncommittal. Mattern was brought out by the friends of Captain Hull. In this condition the cooEresslonal preliminary was fousb over In some circles and it Is known that to some extent the result in the prl mary will indicate the feeling on congres sional matters. Corporations Are In It. But aside from this there is the element ot corporation influence plainly Indicated In the campaign. When MacVlcar was mayor he was especially severe on publlo service corporations and by reason cf his work the people of Des Moines have paid less for gaa and water and light and other things for several years.' It was MacVlcar who caused to be levied a special tax for the construction of a city waterworks sys tem under which about J78.000 has been raised, and this is held a the nucleus ot a fund with whloh to construct a water works plant before the ' expiration of the charter of the . private .."corporation fur nishing water. After MacVlcar was de feated the levy was dropped. It Is ex pected that-the measure , wiU be revived. But the water company has made des perate efforts to get control of the fund and to dissipate it before it can be used In like manner the other corporations of the city are offended at MacVlcar and the fight has largely turned in the direction of control of city affairs by the local cor porations. The attitude of the sporting and gambling element has been hard to define, but gen erally they have been divided on the can dldacy of the two nven. The campaign has been full of personal references and disreputable matters. May Avoid Conflict. About midnight last night an agreement was finally entered into which, if it is not overturned before the polls openi on Mon day, will insure but one primary election It was made possible by -ex-Mayor vjohn MacVlcar Conceding practically the control of the primary to his opponents. ' Question of Assessing;. An interesting question is raised by the canaiaacy ot two men lor city assessor. The present assessor has increased assess ments in . the city materially, not only because there has been a great Increase in valuation. buL cauaa on. der the Iowa law it is required that, valuations be placed on property for taxation purposes at least one-fourth of the actual selling value. But: another can didate has come Into the Held and openly advertises .and has advertised at all times that he desired to be assessor so that he may reduce the assessment. He appeals to all who believe that they are paying too much taxes to vote for htm for assessor on this promise. He does not claim that t, assessments are up to the legal require ment, out bases bis demand for lower as sessments solely on the ground thar much tax ia paid. The outcome on this ngnt is Deing watoced with a great deal vi interest I Democrats Are Waiting-. The democrats are not entering into the campaign at all, but 8 re waiting for de velopments. Four years ago they per mitted the republicans to have their fight out in the primaries, then a citizens' ticket was put up with ''Jerry" Hartenbower tor mayor and he was elected over Mayor Mac Vlcar. Two years later Hurtenbower waa defeated by BrtntoJi. It Is now believed that Hartenbower will be induced to run again. He cannot run as a democrat, bow ever, but under a cltlsens' movement. I'rglng Building Laws. The Fire Insurance Survey Bureau of ties Moines baa had a special expert in the city for some -time, making a second survey of the city in regard to fire protec tion and his report will go to the city council through the Commercial exchange with favorable recommendations. He makes special reference t the need of building Isms in Dee Moines and of some proposed changes in the fire protection ser vice. He declares that the building ordi nances of the city are ot no value what ever In securing safe construction of build ings. He would have additional hydrants for the city and more firemen and he would also forbid the use qf fire stations for any purpose other than for firemen especially for voting booths. It is believed that out of this will come a movement for Improv ing the building laws of the city. Install Block System. , MISSOURI VALLET. Ia.. Jan. lT.-(Spe-ctal.) The Northwestern has just estab lished 'be block system on) the Sioux City branch between here and Sioux City. A tower has been located at the west end of the railroad yards and an operator placed in charge. The system will be es tablished on the branch west just as soon as workmen can put them In.

For many years the Burlington has been taking thousands of people annually to Cali fornia. This travel has increased each year because the service given was the best to be had for the money.
