pared upon this report by a committee of

FLYING MACHIKIS FOR TIIK EXPO
Directors Now 'ea;ntlatloaT o Secure
Flying machines and special excursion
rates for the becond annual expos' Ion of
the National Horticultural congress, are
the developments within the lask. twenty-four
hours. Reduced railroad rates
are an assured fact and will be put in
force on all of the railroads leading Into
Council Bluffs durlnc the week of the
exposition. The flying machine proposi
tion haa not yet assumed definite shape
and may possibly pot mature.
The executive committee of tho con
gress was officially notified at the meet
ing Friday evening by T. A. Barker of
the Burlington, who was authorlxed to
speak for all of the railroads, that a
rate of a fare and one-half with a mini
mum of $2 had been established. This
covers all of the railway systems west
ward from Chicago to the Missouri river,
south as far as St. Louis and aa far
northward as !c Paul and Minneapolis.
Official notification has not yet been
received ' from the western association
governing the Union Pacific and other
Transmlssourl river roads. The proba
bility Is that tho same rates will be of
fered fcr the west aa for the east.
The proposition to bring a flying ma
chine to Council Bluffs for the week
of the exposition was presented by Ralce
of France, who refers to the Scientific
American and asks reply to be sent to
him there. Ha offers to bring a Curtiss
or a Uleriot machine and make flights
during the exposition. Superintendent
Reed was authorized to communicate
with him and ascertain the probable
cost of this Interesting feature. If It la
not too expcnsUe It may be added as
one of the attractions of the exposition.

Made of Forest Roots
Dr. Pierce believes that our American forests abound in most valuable medicinal roots for
the cure of most obstinate and fatal diseases, if we would properly investigate them; and, in
confirmation of this conviction, he points with pride to the almost marvelous cures ef
fected by his
"Golden Medical Discovery "
which has proven itself to be the most efficient stomach tonic, liver
invigorator and blood cleanser known to medical science. Dyspepsia,
or indigestion and torpid liver yield to Its curative action.
The reason uhv it cures these and manv other affections, is clearly shown in a little book of
extracts from the standard medical works which is mailed free to any address by Dr.
N. Y., to all sending request for the same.
Not less marvelous, In the unparalleled cures It Is constantly making of
many peculiar affections, weaknesses and distressing derangements is
Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription,
as is amply attested by thousands of unsolicited testimonials contributed by grate
tul patients who have been cured by It, often after many other advertised medU
cines, and physicians had failed.
Both the above mentioned medicines are wholly made up from the glyceric extracts of native, medicinal
roots. The processes employed in their manufacture were original with Dr. Pierce, and they are carried on
by skilled chemists and pharmacists with the aid of apparatus and appliances specially designed and built for
this purpose. Both medicines are entirely free from alcohol and all other harmful, habit-forming drugs. A
full list of their ingredients is printed on each bottle-wrapper. Don't accept secret nostrums as substitutes
for these medicines OF KNOWN COMPOSITION. ,

Calhoan County Will Raise Record
Corn Crop Thla Year.
LAKE CITY. Ia., Oct. 24. (Special.) The
corn crop of Calhoun county will this
year prove to be more than the mortgage
lifter. There was an unnsual acreage of
corn in this section this year. The crop
was heavy and the quality has been de
clared by grain men to be near 90 per cent,
which Is a very high average, compared to
former years. The quality, and the slxe
ot the corn Is a aource of pleasure and
satisfaction to farmers In general. There
is a very, good price offered for the new
corn, ..that. beats anything for years. The
'averse jrleld per acre will not be over
tr.y-five' bushels, but to have an Income
of: from $15 "to $20 per acre from corn is
not only the most unusual thing In this
' sprite,, ,bu thing unheard of In any other
sttqjn tjlio union. There has been more
than ordinary Interest paid in the growing
of corn In Calhoun county the last fl. .
years. The immense swamns, sloughs and
low prairie lands have been drained off
and the land reclaimed for farmrlng pur
poses. Along the rivers and creeks the
brushy land has been cleared off and the
land plowed up. Land which five years
ago was worthless, this year produced
fine corn. This county prides Itself In
being able to place on record a crop of
corn that will be nearly 8,000,000 bushels,
and this is a 'very conservative estimate,
it will be a month and a half before the
big crop will be picked from the fields.
Hundreds of head of cattle will be fed In
this county this year of the home-grown
corn and the farmer will reap a double
Income from hla efforts.
