Tu.-tt t hn holding of the short course In

the experimental station being maintained
gain at the county poor farm was the
statement made before the P.oard of Super
visor Monday afternoon by A. E. Nelson
rf the Bute Agricultural college at Ames,
who Is superintendent of the experimental
work. Mr.-Kelson's appearance brfure the
board wait to request that an appropriation
of $.100, the an me aa lat year, be made
to meet the expense of conducting the ex
periment station at the county poor farm
The supervisors expressed themselves as
favora-hle to making the appropriation, In
view of the fact that moat satisfactory
results were secured from the experimental
station last year. The farmers took an
diva Interest In the station and derived
much benefit from the experiments In seed
growing. It waa decided, however, to con
sult with Superintendent Barrllt of the
poor farm, who had charge of the elation,
before taking any action.
The Commercial club ts working to se
izure the abort fours for Council Bluffs
this year. I .a at year' It was held at Avooa,
in the eastern end of the county, and waa
such success that the Avoca people are
clamoring for It ugaln. In his talk to the
supervisors Mr. Nelson let It be under
stood tiiat tbe managers of the short
course, which is conducted by the State
Agricultural college, almost Invariably in
sisted on holding the course only where
there was an experimental station.
The board, shortly after convening yes
terday morning for the regular quarterly
session, reappointed Sherman Humphrey
s Janitor of th county court house, fixing
bis salary at ll,4(K, the same as last year.
Postmaster Haxelton In a communication
to the board asked If the government could
obtain the uso of the south court room
with the four rooms back of It and the
Jury rooms on the floor above, in which to
bold the sessions of United States court
during the period occupied In the remodel
ing of the federal building. The board look
the matter under advisement. It Is likely
that the accommodation sought by the
government villi be granted as soon as the
supervisors decide on the rent which they
ought to charge for the use of the rooms.

court for the Incorporation of Crescent as

bearing forty-one signatures against the
proposition. The signers of the protest say
that if the town Is to be Incorporated the

ate limits should comprise 190 acres. They
ask that the court In appointing the com
missioners order that the territory to be
Included In the corporation comprise the
190 acre and not the -eighty acres only.
Tha Including In the corporate limits of
eighty acres only, the signers of the pro
test say, "would deprive those who reside
vlthout the limits of said eighty acre
tract and would be willing to share In
the burden of maintaining sale corporation
of all rights to participate 1n the affairs of
said corporation and In this way would
wotk an unrevorable hsrdsh'p on all per
sona who should be concerned In said cor
poratbn." It la also aliened In. the protest that only
eight of the sinners of the original petition
for Incorporation resMe within the terri
tory sought to be Included within the pro
posed corporate limits of the town.

Itched and Burned Terribly Arms
Affected, Too Could Not Move
Thumbs Without Flesh Cracking
Sleep and Work Often Impos

CUTICURA SOON CURED
HIS FEARFUL ECZEMA
'About a year ago an itching humor
began to appear around the back of my
hand. It started in to spread, and
pretty soon it covered both my hands
and got up over my wrists and even
up to the elbows. Tbe itching and
burning wens terrible. My hands got
aU sooJv and when I scratched, as I
was doing a good part of the time, tha
surface would be covered with blister
and then get raw. The ecsama got so
bad in around the pit of my thumbs
that I oould not move tha thumbs
without deep cracks appearing. I went
to my doctor, but his medicine could
enlr stop the itching and did not seem
to heal my hands up at all. At night
I suffered so fearfully that I could not
sleep, often lying awake until well toward
morning, then waking up still tired.
I am a chef and steward by trade and
I had to give up my place, aa rav hands
were so terrible to look at that they
did not like to have me arotmd about
the food. I could not bear to touch
them with water, but when I positively
had to get my hands clean I would rub
them with oil.
"This sort of business went on for
three months and I kept trying lino
and tar ointments and Mich remedies
with no particular benefit. I did not
know what to do, for 1 was fairly worn
out. For a long time several friends
kept asking me why I didn't use Cuti
cura and at last t thought I would.
First I got the C'utkmra Soap, then
Cu'.lcura Ointment and at last t utk-ura
Resolvent. I put tba Cuticura Oint
ment on at night, covering my handa
with light cotton gloves. In the morn
ing the inside of the gloves would ba
lined with scales, sometimes half ss
long as your finger, leaving nica healed
places whore the scales had bean. Ia
a month I was cured and have kept so
now for nine) months. Mr hands anal
arms ara perfectly clear of" all trace of
ffflftni and I think I am well rid of it.

ut one royal road to heating
It's a weary, wearing road up

relies on old-fashioned, extrav

require one-third less coal than the
average stove or furnace. In se
vere weather no forcing is necessary
to send ample volume of warmth to
windward rooms, and in mild weather a low fire from a little coal makes
just enough comfort no fuel wasted.
IDEAL Boilers and AMERICAN Radiators act like an auto
matic servant in silently, steadily meeting the sudden weather
changes. No straining or burning out of parts, no rivets to loosen,
no thin metals to warp, strip, or rust fifty winters' use will not
wear them out; no repair bills needed. The possible 25 to 50
coal savings, labor savings, and protection to furnishings (no dust,
dirt, or coal-gases in the rooms) soon repay the cost; a far better
investment than money loaned at 6. If you are tired of old-

(From a Staff Correspondent.
UES MOINE8. April 6. (Special.) The
senate Monday passed the bill to
Increase the annual allowance to the state
veterinary department from IT.iOO to $11,000,
also a bill provide for enumeration of
deaf and blind persons and reconsidered
and passed the bill to raise the state
superintendent's salary to 13.000 a year.' The
house defeated by a vote of twenty-four
to fifty-one a bill to enable the governor
Immediately to reorganize the pharmacy
commission, also defeated a hill to Increase
the salary of legislators to tl.ono per session.
The senate killed off a bill to make
the county the unit Instead of the city
In the matter of consent for saloons.
Bill Affect. Two-Cent Fare.
The house took up this morning as a
special order the Meredith bill to create
the office of commerce counsel, the same
bill as that which was last week merci
lesjly slaughtered In the senate. The plan
Is to give the attorney general a special
assistant to care for the work of looking
after transportation questions, and espe
cially to appear before the Railroad com
mission, the Interstate Commerce com
mission and the stale executive council.
The plan has been bitterly fought by the
railroads. It is believed that the chief
opposition lies In the fact that tha-new
position will probably have to deal with
the fight soon to be made for the knocking
out of the Iowa 2-cent fare law. Today
It became known that the railroads had
agreed that if the new position could be
j.laced under the control of the governor
instead of the attorney general the bill
would he opposed much less. The present
attorney general has t.iken a decided aland
in favor of law enforcement and lha bill
before the senate contemplated giving him
power to accept his assistant. The sen
ate may consider the bill giving the gov
ernor authority to name the new assistant
to the attorney general. In the house the
measure was discussed and considered at
length, and then passed 62 to 20. The bill
will doubtless be considered In the senate
again, though when it waa printed objec
tion was made by Sanders and Ollliland to
Its going on the calendar.
No Discrimination for Dortore.
The house passed a bill to change the
law as to the exemption of hospitals from
taxation under certain conditions. Tha bill
taaes from the hospitals tne exemption
where It is shown that there has been dis
crimination as between the doctors of dif
ferent schools. This Is Intended to strike
at some of the hospitals maintained by
one school of medicine.
The house laid on the table a bill to
create a board to license for chiropractlce
The house will appoint a sifting commit
tee at once.
Bar on Cigarette..
The most Interesting bill passed today by
the senate was one forbldlng the smoking
of cigarettes by any person under the age
of 21 except In the presence of his parent
or guardian. The bill has not passed the
house and Is not likely to do so.
Bill on State Voorfcers.
A bill was introduced today by the com
mittee on retrenchment and reform to
provide that all vouchers filed on expense
accounts for the state be In duplicate and
one copy go to the auditor and the other
to the executive council. It also makes
changes in the law as to the printing of
the annual report of the council reducing
its cost about half and saving -,Vj0.
