Frank Holderberg returned to Stuart
Tuesday evening. He reports his rela

feld Pip Saver. The new invention is
intended to save the pips from beinp
crushed to death. Arkfeld made the
discovery that many of his pigs were
beinp killed in this manner. He made
an iron band which he placed about the
body of the baby nips, the result was
the savinp of many litters. He then
equipped the iron band with tiny
spikes and has recently secured a
patent on the device.
Ewing had another fire last Friday
morning. About three o’clock in the
morning fire was discovered coming
from the bedroom of the restaurant
operated by Glen Davis and wife.
From all reports the water was low in
the svfpply tank and along with
numerous complications that arose, the
firemen were unable to control the fire
until the buildings occupied by the
Davis restaurant, Peterson soft drink
parlor and the Jacobson shoe store and
repair shop were totally destroyed.
Very little of the contents of any of
the buildings were saved. Some of the
shoe stock was carried out but most of
it was more or less damaged. We
understand that the Davis restaurant
and the Jacobson shoe store was par
tially covered by insurance, but that
the Peterson soft drink parlor and the
Trussell building which was occupied
by the Davis restaurant were without
insurance. Ewing and Emmet seem
to be having their share af confla

COUNTY ROAD MONEY
TO BE PROPERLY DIVIDED
The county road money will be di
vided differently this yebr from what
it has been in former years. Under
the new program one-half of all the
money collected in each road district
in the county will be placed in the
road fund in that district while the
other one-half will be placed in the
county general road fund. All the
money collected in the different town
ship for road purposes wnl be placed
in the road fund in the township in
which it was collected; one-half of the
said money must be expended in the
road district in which it was collected,
while the other half may be spent any
where in the township. County At
torney Julius D. Cronin advised the
county board that this1 was the prcfper
method of disposing of the road money
and they have ordered the county
treasurer to so distribute the funds.

It is not often that motion picture
fans arc given the opportunity to see
the latest and most stylish costumes

artists of the screen in a story vibrant
with romance and adventure, but that

In this Metro release for Tiffany
Productions, Inc., presented by* Robert
Z Leonard, Miss Murray portrays the
part of a Persian dancer, who, as the
darling of the famous city of pleasure,
is feted and adored for her daring and
artistic creations. She falls in love
with a youthful American, a small
town boy, and goes back to his home
only to find that the people of the little
village are scandalized at his French
wife. The rude awakening among the
bright lights of Broadway gives this
story a turn which makes it one of the
most dramatic offerings of the screen.
