specially tha corn ahow.
Tha long string of autos Jeft Council
Bluffa at I O'clock vestarriav mnrnlna- and
tha occupanta thoroughly enjoyed tha trip

and Interest In the expedition was given by
tha unexpected presence of Prof. P. O.
Holden of Ames, ths famous corn expert,
who snatched a day from his Chautauqua
work and came to Council Bluffs on an
arly train, wiring in advance that he was
coming to make the Blair trip.
When tha visitors, arrived at Blair they
found the town decorated and a loj, of
automohilea waiting at tha olty limits to
Welcome them. Tha Council Bluffs men
were taken to tha Home theater, where the
meeting was Held, , ; . ... ; , .

gueata at dinner of the Blair Toung Men's
Commercial club.- A speech of welcome by
Dr. C. K. Mead, president of the club, was
responded to by. Poatmastar Haselton .of
Counoll Bluffs. -

The Xlrat work done waa tha formation of
the Washington County etotlon of the Mis
souri Valley, .Corn . Orowera . assoclaUon.
which repreaented one or more members
from every township in the county. ,
The next vemt shewed that Prof. Holden
had been secretly preparing for his visit,
for he was soon surrounded by a string of
farmer with small boxes and paper paok
agea containing live, wriggling and fully
developed specimens of every kind of harm
ful worm and bug to be found In the corn
fields of Washington county which they
had captured and brought to him by re
quest He used these harmful Insects as
Illustrations for an extended talk that waa
filled with most valuable Information and
Instruction. Tha Washington county corn
grower soon realised that this was worth
far mora than It cost to catch tha bugs. ; .

Property Owners on South Side of
Willow Arenuo Will Soon .
. Secure Beparfment
The city council, - In - committee of the
whole, decided to grant the request of
property owners living on the south side
of Willow avenue in the block adjoining
Baylies park for the repavem ent of the
, street, and tha matter will thua be reported
at tha. next meeting of the council. For
the purpose of lessening the expense to the
property owners. City Engineer Etnyre Is
going to take' tha levels and ascertain If
It la possible to put a new course of pav
ing block on the surface without removing
(he old brick, If this can be done without
too much Interfererice with the grade lines
at Pearl street and at South Sixth street,
rt will save the property owners all the ex
pens of forming a new base.
The block in question Is the very first
bit of brick paving laid In western Iowa,
and It has been doing service for nearly
twenty-five year. It waa laid at a time
when the town was In the midst of Its ex
periments with cedar blocks, and was
permitted at the earnsst request of "Uncle
Jimmy" Wlckham, who made the brick,
, .prepared the specifications and assumed
the whole responsibility, solely, for tha
, purpose of trying out an idea by expert
' mentation. How soundly be reasoned and
bow well he did his work Is evidenced by
Cthe fact that after nearly a quarter of a
Iriitury of use on a street where traffio has
always been vary heavy the pavement Is
till la fair condition, and that, too, with
out a particle of repair of any character
from the daylt was laid.
Unless the park and library board vol
unteer to defray their portion of the ex
pense, the property ownera will have to as
sume all of the financial obligation.

The Milwaukee work haa lasted about a
year. That which remaina to be done In

Mr. wimama pays it is really remarkable
how well tha Mouth Dakota lands with
stand the long and aevere drouth that haa
afflicted the northwest thla season. West
of the Missouri river the crops hav suf-
rerea oaniy. urain and flax la still grow

Insufficient gas or water mains had been

bar that stopped paving progress. Owing
to the unhappy conditions of the relations
of the city and the water company the
water company naa no authority to lay any
street mains or make any sort of service ex
tension ana tne city naa no nower to com
pel It. The city council In committee of the
wnoie decided to aDDeal to the oatriotlsm of
the residents and ask them to defray tha
coei or laying a rour-incn main with the
guaranty that whenever the water problem
Is settled ther will be reimbursed for their
outlay. The water company ha agreed to
furnish the material and lay the new main
at abaolute coat, which will approximate
about SO oenta a foot. A proposition of this
character will be formulated at the next
meeting of tha city council.
