The following is an extract from one of the leading style journals:
"Fashions for Spring; while not indicative of any radical change, are
extraordinarily interesting. The prevailing style features of the winter
modes have been developed and improved rather than any attempt having
be?n made to introduce changes of an unusual character.
"Taffeta, in both plain and fancy effects, is the most popular material
for Spiing. It is shown in stripes, plaids and in pompadour effects. The
combining of silks with sheer materials is an important factor in dress
fashions for immediate and future wear."
For Spring Dresses and Costumes,
our showing of Taffetas in plaids, stripes and plain colors, is all you could wish
for in making a selection. These are all yard wide and are of the soft Chiffon
finish. Chiffons and Georgette Crepes to match Taffetas and Silk Poplins, for
the making of sleeves, vest effects and over-drapes.
The McCALL FASHIONS are the last word in good styles. The new
Spring Quarterly, (just out) is simply filled from cover to cover with chic styles
for every one.

SUDDEN DEATH OF
Editor of Big Farm Paper and Rural
Life Leader Drops Dead
Berlin, Feb. 23 A great fleet of
Zeppelins, flying to America and
bringing food back to Germany, is a
possibility if this war lasts several
years longer, an authority on aero
nautics declared today.
"Seems like a dream," he said, '"but
a war tnat has seen .submarines go
from Wilhebhaven to Constanti
nople and Zeppelins and aeroplanes
play unexpected roles may see even
more startling developments in three
or five years.
"The fact that this possibility is
being discussed is evidence of the
lealization here that this war between
England and Germany is to be de
cisive, it not a battle to exhaustion.
In this finish fight Germany expects
to win, if necessary, by bringing into
play all the inventive powers that
have stood her in such good stead."
Attack Through Holland Possible.
German critics are speculating on
what would happen if the English
threw an army into Holland and
marched against Aix La Chappelle to
trap the German army in Belgium.
Holland has just voted new credits for
the defense of her neutrality.
Rumors that Sweden plans to at
tack Rusia if the war becomes one
of exhaustion have been circulated t
here for months.
Reports that Spain has been buying
munitions in America have also
aroused public interest in Spain's am
bition to conquer Gibraltar.
Rumania Favors Allies.
Rumania is the unsolved puzzle of
the Balkans. At present she is con
trolled almost entirely by England's
heavy purchases of Rumanian grain.
See us about your wire now
before prices get too high.
We have in stock a large
quantity of the American
wire, at the RIGHT prices.

For County SherifT.
We are authorized to announce the
candidacy of John Wunderlich for re
i omination for the cfilce of sheriff of
Cass county, subject to the will of the
voters at the primaries on April 18th.
Des Moines, la., Feb. 23. Henry
Wallace, 80 years old, publisher of a
farm journal here, and a member of
the Roosevelt country life commission,
dropped dead in the First Methodist
church here last night while attending
a meeting of the Iowa laymen's mis
sionary movement. Death was without
warning and is believed to have re
sulted from heart disease.
Mr. Wallace was a native of Penn
sylvania. He entered the ministry in
1862 and the following year accepted
a joint pastorate at Davenport and
Rock Island. In 1880 ill-health forced
him to retire from the ministry, and
he took up farming.
In 1883 he was made editor of a
farm publication here, and in 1895,
with his three sons, he established the
agricultural paper of which he was
the head until his death.

wheels revolving at the rate of forty
miles an hour. He was the only one

The cause of the accident was a
broken pin on a drive wheel, that loos

Before "Baldy" could get his train
