In the old days, when there waa a
disaster at sea. the women and chil

Iowa mobs of armed farmers blocked
the roads and would not let milk
wagons pa.se on the way to town with
necessary supplies for the women and
children. There were plenty of food
supplies In the country, town people
were willing to pay for them, and
farmers needed the money, but tha
