W Jra B. Thomas of the Iowa lift all

thnre are now about 4.W10 members In Iowa

that a mat amount of work ha1 been done

For one thlnr the association went on
record aa Indorsing the bulk Kales bill
which, had: been nrred and passed by the
Jobbers and manufacturers. It was pointed
oat that this bill while It Is not for the
benefit of the retailer, will have the effect
of protecting all honest business. The new
'w for Inspection of wetphta and measure
also received commendation by the asso
ciation. One of the most Interesting discussions
was that In regard to the caeh eystem as
opposed to that of credit. The state orga
niser urged that all ro to a cash basis and
cited Instances showing- where this had
proven, vastly better for the dueler than
to give credit. But the araociatlon took
no action, as many of them realized the
Impossibility of a Tat rule on that sub
ject. The association made arrangements for
a standing leKlslatlve committee of seven
members to engage in promoting legisla
tion. The scope of the association Is to be
extended to Include dealers other than
Wot "attarled with Airmen.
The State Board of Agriculture has thus
far refused to make contracts with any
of the companies operating aerophmes and
giving exhibitions. Investigation has been
made and It Is found that none of them
can carry out the agreement in case the
weather. Is the least difficult. At all the
recent meets the flyers have refused to
go up when there Is any considerable wind
blowing. The state fair will probably have
an exhibition of that kind, but It has not
yet been engaged.
Views of the Liquor Men.
"Organization and education of the pub
lic are the only salvation of the liquor
dealer, in the face of the agitation which
has been started against him," said Tim
othy L. McDonnush of Cleveland, O., pres
ident of the National Association of Liquor
Dealers, before the Iowa convention of
liquor men held. In Davenport.
Over 200 men and women attended the
annual banquet,' at which a recent legis
lation directed against the liquor traffic
throughout the , country ' was denominated
as "fanatical." Robert J. Hallhe of Chi
cago, national secretary, was also a
Corporations Are Complying.
Only .a few of the corporations doing
bifness.lniowa'haue this year failed to
compfy fully with the law tn regard to
annual reports and a small fee. Whan
the year closed.' there 'were about thirty
five that had not been heard from and
some of these ."were 6ut of existence, while
'"other have since made the reports. It
Is probable that the state will not have
to prosecute any of them to secure com
pliance with the law.
Egg advertising la a neglected art In
Iowa, according to Prof. W. A. Llppin

"In Des Moines there is no demand for
uniformity of color and kind of egg."
said Prof. Upplncott. "People have been
used to getting eggs of all sorts and do
not ask for anything different. Tet they

Educational One of Strong
Features of Y.W.C.A. Work
By Kate A. McHugh.
Few except those directly connected
with the Toung Women's Christian
association realise the work which
this association Is doing In the edu
cating of this community. Few
lines of education are omitted from
Its courses. The foreigner who
wishes to learn conversational Eng
lish, the young maid or matron who
wishes to learn the secrets of house
keeping, the girl who wishes to train
her body, and the one who wishes
to gain from the mssters of litera
ture the great secret of making
life worth living, all find help In
the classes provided by the Toung
Women's Christian association.
None but one closely connected
with the students who gather here,
knows what an earnest and inter
ested set of listeners gather In
these rooms. These classes have
been the college course of many a
girl to whom college training has
been denied, and few college classes
boast such an interested and atten
tive group of students.
Were the work of the Toung
Women's Christian association re
duced to that done by the edu
cational department, the associa
tion would still deserve the hearty support of the -community,

Two Hundred Pairs of Game Birds to

SIOUX FAIJ-3. 8. D., May 27. (Special
Telegram.) South Dakota, through W. F.
Bancroft, chief of the department of game
and fish, has purchased 100 pairs of
Chinese ring neck pheasants for the pur
pose of propagating them tn the state. The
birds cost $6 a pair, making a total of
$1,200 to be expended out of the state game,
fund, besides other necessary expenses In
sending them by express to different parts
of the state and to people who will look
after them during the experimenting.
In order that the experiment may prove
satisfactory, few of the birds will be given
to persons who wish to raise them In cap
tivity, but they will be liberated and their
propagation carefully watched.
Near Redfield and near Sioux Falls some
of these birds were put out In their wild
stale and did quite well. The birds put out
near Sioux Falls have nearly ail been de
