SCHOOL BOARD TO ORGANIZE Treasurer Erii, Elected Ltet March, Take Office Under Hew Law, CHANGE IN TIME OF TAKING THE CENSUS Law Exeete to Work to Alvaalags of Tearhers la Cooatrr Districts, MalUas; Their Teaaro If or 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 Beptember. 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 their seats until July 1 the teachers. It Is expected, will be elected for the entire school rear.

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 Jurisdiction of the city of Council Bluffs and the state of Iowa. 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 good beers. 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 IORITY of QUALITY we challenge all competitors. Of materials we ise only the most excel lent, regardless of cost Corn, the one important substitute, which, on account of its cheapness, has been extensively adopted by many brewers, never enters our brewery. Our facilities for brewing beer are un equaled. Our storing capacity of 600,000 barrels doubles any other brewery in the United Statesf and enables us to store our beer from four to five months. Facts speak louder than words. Publicity is the demand of the day. The consumer is entitled to the truth. b '. nLiji,''T'-i ii , .ill, 'ii;- :lUi;;M - - ?

(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 at times admission was charged to see some of the games. Suit was started by J. F, Splker for an Injunction, which was granted for the reasons given, and he was given damages to the amount of 31 and costs, amounting to 148.30. Rlnsi for Nebraska Brother, Miss Ada C. Davis, the wealthy woman who was discovered dead at her home near Berwick a few days ago, left In her will a bequest of 310 for her brother, William, In Saundtrs county, Nebraska, with the request that he buy a ring with the money and have It engraved, "From Ada." The rest of the property is willed to nieces and other relatives. Conditio of Fralt.
