Iowa's Butter Record.
More butter was produced in low
during the year ending Nov. 1, 1911
than ever before In the history of th
state, according to figures in thi
twenty filth annual report of the stati
dairy commissioner, filed with
rnor Carroll by W. B. Barney, sta.t
fci.Iry and food commissioner.
The report registers an Increase Ir
the total production of the state ol
2,783,684 pounds, which dairymen be
lleve Is due to the campaign for bettei
dairy products, which has been waged
by the state In recent years.
Fayette county led all other Iowa
counties In total butter product'pn
during the year with 3,921,515 pounds
to its credit.
The average price of butter, the re
jort shows, was 26.13 cents, which Is
4 cents less per pound than last
year's average. Mr. Barney explains
this slump in price as being due to
the large quantity of butter of poo?
quality held In storage which was
thrown upon the market last year.

BOUND TO HAVE THAT PARTY
Little Thing Like Dizzy Walk In Air
Couldn't Fease Ardent Bridge
Nothing short of devotion to bridge
could have nerved a party of women
to do what this party of women did.
Half an hour before the time set for
the playing to begin In the tenth-floor
apartment something went wrong with
the dynamos, and all elevators stopped
running for, anyhow, a day and a half.
When the bridge hostess learned that
she nearly fainted.
"Nine flights of stairs to climb," she
said, "and every woman I have Invited
Is fat. They'll never get here."
She Implored everybody about the
house to suggest some way out of the
trouble. Nobody could, except to
walk; there was uj alternative. But
the hostess did not give up so easily.
She looked across at the neighboring
apartment house, whose tenth-floor
windows faced her windows. An
abyss fifteen feet wide yawned be
tween the two buildings, but to a wo
man In her predicament fifteen feet
dwindled to fifteen Inches.
"There Is a way," she said. "How
about those long planks on the roof?
Lay them across to the opposite roof,
make a handrail of ropes, and my
guests can go up In the elevator to
the roof of that house, cross the
bridge, and walk down one flight to
Fmployes of both houses gladly as
sumed the role of bridge builder, a
hallboy was stationed In the lobby to
explain matters to arriving guests, and
a few minutes later a procession of
scared but determined women gasped
and clutched on their aerial way.

POOR FIDO WAS KICKED OUT
Mistress Didn't Grieve Over His
nest After Learning He Was
Out of Fashion.
The late Mrs. Sue Landon Vaughan,
who originated Memorial day, had al
ways a great love for humanity and a
great contempt for such things as ob
structed the free play of humanltar
lanism. "Mrs. Vaughan," said a Washington
veteran, "regarded lap dogs as ob
structions to humanltarlanlsm, and
she had no belief in the sincerity of
the average society woman b affection
for her lap dog. There's a lap-dog
story she often used to tell.
"A man so the story runs came
down to breakfast one morning to
find his wife in tears.
" 'Oh,' she sobbed, 'what shall I do?
Poor little Fido Is 111, and the dog doc
tor says his case Is serious. Oh, what
will become of me If anything hap
pens to my precious little Pomeranian
"The man comforted his wife as
well as he could, and that evening he
came home early In order to admin
ister more comfort to her.
"To his amazement, however, ho
found her, on his return, seated at the
piano, singing one of the gayest airs
from 'The Count of Luxembourg.'
"'Why,' he stammered, 'why, when
I left home this morning Fldo was
ill and you were heartbroken, while
"Strumming- gayly, she glanced at
him over her shoulder.
"'You Fee, dear,' she said, 'Mrs.
Van Astorbllt cal'ed this afternoon,
and she told me that Pomeranians are
not fashionable any longer. Every
thing Is Pekinese spaniels now. So I
dried my eyes and kicked Fldo out."'

Pumps are not the easiest things to

Agents of the department of agri-

for the last two months experimenting
with devices to trap English sparrows.
From Maine to California an agent
of the department has traveled during
those months. Many machines have
been tried out, but as yet one has not
been perfected which officials say will
do the work successfully.
Pr. Charles J. Fisher, who has the
work In hand, said that the English
sparrows are a nuisance and that they

parts of the country, however, we

An Incident of some Interest Is re
ported from the Woodland neighbor
hood. Last week on the farm of W.
L. Riley of that vicinity a quail's nest
was found In which a hen had laid an

number of quail eggs.
The last of the week the hen egg
hatched and the quail seemed to lose
all Interest In her own eggs and turn
ed her attention to the chick, leaving
her nest and disappearing with It.
Some of the quail eggs were broken
and showed that they would have
