The Board of Education will hold Its
annual meeting tonight, as provided by
the new law enacted by the last legislature.
The new law provides that all school boards
throughout the state shall hold their annual
meetings on July 1 or the day following
when July 1 happena to fall on a 8undn.y.
Heretofore the Board of Education held
Its annual meeting on the third Monday In
Although Dillon Ross was elected secre
tary of the board at the annual meeting
last Beptember, the board, under the pro
visions of the new law, will be required to
elect a secretary at Its meeting tonight.
There being no opposition, Mr. Ross will
be unanimously re-elerted. At the school
election In March George 8. Davis, the
democratic candidate, was elected treasurer
of the school district of Council Bluffs.
Unlike the two new members of the Board
of Education elected at the same .time, Mr.
Davis did not assume hla office at the
March meeting, but will do so tonight,
when H. G. McQee, who held over as
treasurer, will retire In hla favor. Treas
urer Davis filed hla bond shortly after hla
election and the same was approved by
the board, so that he la prepared to taaums
the responsibilities of his office tonight.
The new law also makes a change In the
time of taking the cliool census. Hereto
fore the census had to be taken end com
pleted between September 1 and -the third
Monday in that month. Now It has to be
completed by July L and Secretary Rcas,
under whose direction th? census has been
taken, will be required ti make his report
of the same at the mat'l,ig tonight. Mr,
Rosa stated last evening that he had not
quite completed the tabulation and that
possibly he would be unable to make a
report tonight, although ae hoped to.
The new law affects the dlrriors In the
rural school districts somewlrai differently
to those In the city llstrlcis and will prove
a material benefit '.o th tencliern In the
country schools. While tns school directors
In the rural districts nre elected in March,
unlike the directors in Mty district, they
do not take their seats until the annual
meeting In July. Herstofore It lias been
the practice of school boards In flat rural
districts to elect their teacher for six
months only, from September , to March,
and then when the new board convened In
March it, as a rule, elected another set
of teachers for the rest nf the echool year.
Now that the new direct irs do rot trke

Fight Not Allowed la Iowa.
There was no prize fight at Courtland
beach yesterday afternoon, although all
preparations had been made. The pro
moters of the affair and the principals In
the proposed fistic encounter were on the
ground, but Major George H. Richmond,
chief of police, with Detective Weir and
Sergeant O'Nell were also there. When
Chief Richmond and the two officers
reached Courtland beach they found every
thing In readiness for the fight. The ring
had been pitched on the old dancing pa
vilion and the ropes were strung and the
canvas spread. When Clarence English,
the promoter of the fight, and Guy Buckles
and "Kid" Jensen, the principals, appeared
on the scene Major Richmond entered the
ring and Informed them that the fight
could not be pulled off on Iowa soil. Real
ising that Council Bluffs' chief of police
fully meant what he said, English and his
assistants at once proceeded to dismantle
the ring and remove themselves from the

Superiority of Quality
is the Test.
TWTOST BEER, no matter by whom
brewed, is clean, pure and sterilized.
Cleanliness is accepted as a rule of self
preservation in every reputable brewery.
Purity signifies nothing more than the
absence of foreign matter.
An experienced brewer would no more
boast of the purity and cleanliness of his beer
than a gentleman would brag of having
washed his face.
Many pure, clean beers, however, are not 1
A really first-class beer must not only
be free from self-evident defects, but it must
combine all the positive excellencies known to
the science of brewing.
For these reasons brewers who do not
dare to test the substantial merits of beer
harp on purity.
The true test is QUALITY which cannot
be had without superior materials, perfect
treatment and ample storing capacity.
Upon this issue of positive SUPER

(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DES DOINE8. July 1. (Special.) Prof. P.
G. Holden of the State Agricultural col
lege will start out this month to increase
the yield of corn In Iowa by 6,000,000 bush
els. His efforts will be made under the
college extension department, for which the
last legislature appropriated 335,000. Prof.
Holden was the originator of the gospel
seed corn train that toured Iowa last win
ter and the winter before, spreading In
formation among the farmers as to the
selection and care of their seed corn. Last
year there was about 3,000,000 acres of corn
In Iowa and the average yield waa thirty
six bushels. The year before lb was thirty
two bushels. This average yield means
but two stalks of corn to the hill. Prof.
Holden believes that by proper selection
of the seed corn so that every grain will
grow, a stand of corn can be secured that
will grow three good stalks to the hill,
which would add one-third to the yield
of the state. Since the lectures of Prof.
Holden and the gospel seed corn trains the
yield of corn has steadily increased. Be
ginning this month, Prof. Holden leaves the
agronomy department of the State Agri
cultural college and will devote his entire
time to the college extension work, which
means that he Is to change from teaching
farmer boys In the college to teaching the
farmer and his boy direct on the farm.
He believes that a great deal can be added
to the increase of the yield of corn next
year by the dissemination of Information
this year, as to how to select seed corn.
and believes that It Is only a question of
time till a perfect stsnd of corn of three
stalks to the hill with three full-slsed ears
will be secured. The acreage of corn this
ear la 3.433,960 acres, and to add the 5.000,-
000 bushels which he has set for the in
crease next year It will be necessary to
add only a trifle over half a bushel to the
acre. To make an Increase from the
present average of two stalks to the hill to
a perfect stsnd of three stalks to the hill
would mean an Increase of about lio.ooo.ooo
bushels. Prof. Holden, therefore, thinks
that his proposed increase of 6.000,000 Is a
very conservative figure. To accomplish
this he has planned to go Into every sec
tion of the state of Iowa to reach the
farmer with his theory as to the selection
of seed corn.
v Will A Beet Iowa Grala.
Grain dealers of this atale are In conflict
as to whether or not lows win oe aneciea
by the investigation of the grain business
and line elevators and discriminations
called for by the LeFollette resolution.
E. D. Hamlin of this city, who operates
along the Iowa Central, believes that the
investigation wilt effect only the big
terminal elevators, and their dealings with
the railroads. At different times In th
last few years It haa been discovered In
this state that there are secret agreements
as to rates and shipments of gTaln. The
farmers have had offered in the legislature
a number of times bills Intended to cor
rect evils which, however, have always
failed to pass. A little over a year ago
members of the Iowa Grain Dealers aeso
elation fell out among themselves as to
prices ef grain and also as to Una elevators
which were favored as compared, to the
Independent shipper. A number of grain
dealers have expressed themselves the last
few days to the effec( that the LaFollette
Investigation will disclose discrimination in
favor of the line elevators. They further
more, claim that the same conditions which
operate to give Peavey oV Co. at Council
Bluffs an allowance of 1'4 cents a 100
welght and free switching between Omaha
and Council Bluffs, also operate In other
parts of this state to the advantage of
large shippers, and they anticipate aome
disclosures under the LaFollette Investiga
tion. May Cartall Base Ball.
The supreme court has been called upon
to decide a case that may affect the whole
future of the national game In Iowa. An
appeal has been taken from Lucas county
In an Injunction proceeding that was
started to prohibit small boys playing base
ball on a vacant piece of ground In the
olty of Charlton. The Injunction was
granted by the district court of Lucas
county on the ground that the balls being
batted about were -liable to go onto the
ground of the complainant, " which would
require the players to Invade the com
plainant's yard, which might lead to dam
age to complainant's property. As there
Is always adjoining property to every base
ball grounds the same ruling will apply
everywhere In the state, nnleas the supreme
court reverses the case. The vacant land
In Charlton la owned by W. A. Elken
berry. The land has been used as a sort
of public commons and small and large
boys alike have for years gathered there
for their base ball games. The owner re
ceived no rental for the ground, though
