Are 4 endnc.ed on Par ies; Reals ('. W. Mars-la .New President. The memlers of the Western Iowa Kdl torial association had n substantial taste of Council Bluffs hospitality yesterday when they convened here for their annual midwinter meeting. This, added to the fart that the meeting was In every way the most Interesting and Instructive held since the formation of the association, caused them to depart last night fully ratlsflcd and devoutly thankful that they had come. They were here to the number of about fifty, accompanied by their wives and sweethearts. The feature of the meeting that give them the greatest pleasure, and was the moat entertaining and Instructive, was the half hour's chalk talk of Charles Bartholomew, the famous western cartoonist, whose sketches appear dally In the Boston papers and so frequently In New York's big Jour nala that the eastern people have long believed that "Bart" I a New England product. But he Is not. He Is an Iowa boy, born down In Lucas county, and quit a country newspaper office when he waa It years old and went to Minneapolis, where for more than twenty years he has been furnishing a dally cartoon for the Journal. "Barf drifted down In this vicinity, lured by the desire to see the old home stead and the country print shop at Charlton, and when he heard that the western Iowa editors were to be here he changed hla program and' waited here to meet a lot of hla old friends of the Iowa press. He thua came upon the program as an unexpected and delightful addition, and for the time he stood on the platform In the auditorium of the public library build ing he gave the editors the brightest half hour they have experienced for many a day. When he had exhausted the big pad of blank newspaper fastened to his sketch board he waa only saved from painful hand-wringing by the fact that he had managed to daub his hands most gener ously with the. black and colored crayons, but there were dozens of his enthusiastic auditors who Insisted upon grasping his hand Just to get the color as a memento. Ms sketches, made with lightning rapidity, are all humorous, but of that wholesome, sparkling character that leaves no sting. When It was over there was a rush for tha pile of carelessly cast aside sheets, and they were carried away as prised souvenirs. Baalnesa of Session. The meeting of tha association was full of Interest for the editors. It waa 11 o'clock when C. V. Baya of tha Woodbine Twiner. president of the association, called It to order, and the lengthy program of ahop talk waa rapidly carried out. W. R. Orchard of the Council Bluffa Nonpareil gave an Interesting talk on the subject of the "City Daily and the Country Weekly." Discussions followed, until the noon hour. In the afternoon W. T. Davidson of tha Hamburg Reporter, expressed his views of the utility of the Junior Linotype ma chine for the country office. He aroused much Interest and gave the other editors valuable Information. The discussions fol lowing Indlcsted that most of the editors were so prosperous that they were ready to discard cheaper typesetting machines for the standard linotypes. Expressions of approval of the action of -the Postofflce de partment In discontinuing envelope printing were general following the talk on the sub ject by Kdltor Merrill of the Neola Ga-xette-Reporter. Newspaper contests were of doubtful utility unless freed from every eymptom of graft in the opinion of Editor McCllntock of the Tabor Beacon. Nearly everybody took part In the discussions throughout the day. An appreciative and patriotic address waa given during the afternoon by Attorney W. K. Mitchell, law partner of Emmet Tinley, who pointed out to the edltora the splendid opportunities and the growing power of the country press. He told them that the publlo schools, the pulpit and the press were the three greatest engines of modern civilisation, and that the weekly press waa today mora powerful than It had ever been. New Officers.. The official business of the meeting re lated chiefly to the selection of officers and selecting the place for holding the mid summer meeting. Shenandoah and Red Oak were two applicants, with Shenandoah backed by its 100-member booster club and Red Oak by equally strong support. When the vote waa taken Red Oak won by seven majority. The new officers for the year are: C. W. Marvin of the Shenandoah Sentinel-Post, president; W. E. Wells of the Red Oak Express, vice president, and E. A. Stevens of the Silver City Times, secretary and treasurer, a position he has held since the fe.rmelton of the organisation, for the rea son thst thsre would be no association If It had not been for Stevens and the con viction thst It would cease to exist If he withdrew from the active management. The only other feature of public Interest wss the award of the solid silver cup of fered bv Herman Leffert. the Council Bluffs Jeweler, for the best displayed ad from copv fumlnhed hv him.

DUN'S REVIEW OF TRADE Progress Toward Normal Conditions is , Slow But Steady. INCREASE IN TJEY GOODS XBASE Important Rate Decisions Bring; to aa End Period of t'neertalnty Exlat Ins; Since Spring; of Kino. teen-Ten. NEW YORK. Feb. 2S.-Dun's Review of Trade today says: Though progress toward normal condi tions of business activitv Is slow. It Is steady. In this progress the iron and steel trade is taking the lead and Its gain Is so notable as to promise well for other branches. The percentage of production to capacity is continually Increaalng and the evidences or expansion not only in finished products, nut In pig iron, multlplv tn such a way as to have a favorable effect on business sentiment The important rate decisions bring to an f ii . P""'11 t uncertainty that has pre vailed since the spring of 1910. While these ravor manufacturers and merchants, their nnal outcome should be en expansion of industrial and mercantile efficiency bene riclal to carriers and shippers alike. in the dry goods trade there Is an In crease In transactions and there Is no heavy aurpluB stock to cause prolonged depression. Accompanying the decline In raw cotton there has been some unsettlement of cotton goods values and the Impetus to curtail production has-been Increased. Staple lines are generally slow, buyers not anticipating their requirements. Specialty goods continue to sell well and the producers of these are generally busy, but comparatively few of the plants are working under full headway. The amicable settlement of the discount question Is a favorable development. There Is sorr.s im provement In the demand for domeatio hides, Including both packer and country - .Tu k' f n1 "ale" of Doth klda are larger, with prices steady to firm. The question of terms of discounts in the leather trade now bids fair to be finally aettled, as at a recent meeting between shoe manufacturers and tanners a compromise was made on the question and U Is expected that this decision will be adopted generally through out the trade.

Increasing and new orders are coming nut In larger volume, with the lighter finished lines leading In point of activity.

These ser mons are based on the beatitudes with which Jesus began his1 sermon on the mount. Dr. Jenka takes the position that Jesus must have strong characters to win for His kingdom and thst his men must operate upon laws that will approve them selves In time. "A world Is not won on weak sentiment. The laws of life are as strong as the sun, as regular as ths seasons, aa surs as the harvest." The subjects are: "Poverty and Riches," "Ths Fruits of Disappointment," "The In heritance of Character," "Aspiration and Satiety," "The Pound of Flesh." "Vision and Purpose." "Ths Arbiters of Wrong" nd "Ths Justification of Right." Music program for the St. Mary's Con gregational church: MORNING.
