Sons of Pottawattamie Organise.
The movement to form an organization
of native born citizens of Pottawattamie
county took form last .evening, when an
organization was formed with the follow
ing officers: President, W. H. 8churs; vice
president, Louis Zurmuehlen, Jr.; secre
tary, H. Z. Haas; treasurer, J. H. Bock.
The organization Is to be known as "The
Bona of Pott iwattamle" and President
Bchurs was named as chairman of a com
mittee to draft articles of Incorporation,
a constitution and by-laws.
The movement has taken favor In other
counties and they will likely organise sim
ilar societies. It Is hoped ultimately to
form a state organisation of the county
societies under the title of "Sons of Iowa."

"Woman" is the name of a new magazine for women.
Hie first number is just issued. Your newsdealer, has it.
You can get it from him, and it is worth your while getting
it. There is nothing startling about this magazine. There
should be nothing startling about a decent magazine for
women and the home. But this particular magazine is
unique among all the so-called publications for women.
You might not like it a little bit, and then, again, it might
hit your fancy good and hard.
If you like fiction good, wide-awake, snappy stories
both serials and short stories you will like " Woman. "
In fact, fiction is the big feature of the magazine.
All the other magazines for women are cast on the same
model a little bit of fiction, a few articles, more or less
chit chat, some wise advice, a fashion department and a
smattering of general miscellany. "WOMAN" doesnjt
look any more like this conventional model than a yellow
dog looks like a race horse. It is built on new lines for a
strictly woman's publication. To know what it is like you
will have to get a copy of it. It would cost too much to
tell you all about it in this advertisement.
The price of " WOMAN " is TEN CENTS A COPY,
and the magazine is a very big one 192 pages.
By the way, two rattling good serial stories begin in this first num
ber and it contains a big lot of other good things. You would
do well to ask your dealer for it before his supply is exhausted.
