Twenty Thousand Crop
Walter Winslow is just home- from
lone, Morrow county to investigate his
loss from a cyclone and cloudburst that
ruined his grain crop of about 600
acres. Mr. Winslow and H. H. Vande
vort were interested in a grain tract
in which there was 184 acres of early
Bart blue stem wheat that would have
nveraged 40 bushels to the acre, 150
acres of barley that promised an aver
age crop nnd the remainder of the 600
acres in spring blue stem wheat. Af
ter the wind, half a foot of hail, cloud
burst and ' then a regulation twister
got through with their tract it was
swtpt as clean as a paved street. The
cyclone was about two miles wide and
after travelng part of its six mile
course, turned at right angles. It
scooped v.p the dirt and soil from the
surrounding country and deposited it
about f .'cot thick in the stores t
lone and when Mr. Winslow arrived cn
the scene, the storekeepers were r-hov-elir.g
out the mud by means of scoop
shovels. The cyclone required only 15
minutes to finish the work, laying
waste a fine country section two miles
wide a?d six miles long. The ware
houfe t Morgan wis scattered all over
thn sarrepnriing country. Mr. Winslow
estimatf-s thi-ir 1o at about $20,000.
Thy had insured against fire but not
ag.i'nst cyclones as such a thing was
never known in that part of the state.

"OVEB THE TOP"
Soageant Arthur Guy Empey, hero of
a hundred fights with the Hun, went
'Over the Top" at' the Liberty thea
ter last night, and'with him went tho
sympathies and cheers of the largest
audience that ever was jammed into a
The first showing of "Over the Top"
tho . magtthfiieent Viitagrapli picture
made from Empey 's famoms war book,
was the most noteworthy event in the
history of the Liberty theater and one
of 'tho most inspiring patriotic inci
dents this city has witnessed sine the
United State entered the war. ,
There were three reasons for this:
First, the people saw the fighting
sergeant and the American soldiers in
action for the first time.
Second, "Over the Top" as present
ed on the screen 'by the Vitagraph
company, is the most vivid, patriotic
appeal that has been made by any
agency other than President Wilson '
Third, the audience which gatnerett
to witness tfce great picture was the
tareest. most enthusiastic and most rep
resentative that has ever been seen
"Over the Top" is on again tonight
at the Liberty and it is worth the
priee of admission just to see Empey '
and bis bull dog nnderjaw whe he
gets into the fight. For while th pic
tures of Empey make him appear as a
peaceful citizen, the fact seems to be
that he is a natural born fighter.

If the weather is favorable, it is

Governor Of Iowa Declared to
Be Only Hinderance to
Des Moines, Iowa, July 18. Gover
nor W. L. Harding was denounced by
1,000 democarts assembled in state con'
vention at the Coliseum this afternoon
when every man arose to his feet and
cheered when J. J Meyers, of Carroll,
temporary chiarman, declared "the
chief executive of our state publicly
insulted and sneered our president here
one week ago. As a democrat I resent
his remarks and sneers. I hope every
democrat here feels the same way. '
Strong sentiment was current, to pub
licly resent the insult by passing reso
lutions, asking the governor for an ap
ology and an explanation of his re
Mevers continued his aitack on
Harding in his keynote speech.
' Voters of this state will not sup
port a party of fault finders," Meyers
declared. "The trouble with many re-,
publicans in Iowa is that they believe
that they are the divinely appointed
party to rule the country."
Highway Commission Assures
Statement Reasons ror
In a statement issued by the state
highway department, the people of Ma
rion county are told that comments to
the effect" that the money which was
to have been expended in paving the
Sal am-Aurora section of the Pacific
highway is being diverted 40 other sec
tions of the state are rather unkind
toward the highway commission.
The statement doe not say when
the road will be paved. At the time the
bids were opened for the paving, the
highway commission announced that its
action was based on a desire to post
pone all paving until after the war.
But in the s'ateirient just issued, it is
said that the eoniniitarion did not pro
ceed with the paving at this time be
cause the bids were not favorable and
the season was late.
Criticism of the acton of the eotomis
sion prompted the issuance of the
statement, which is as follows:
"There seems to be a misunderstand
ing throughout Marion counity as re
gards' the attitude of the state high
way commisidoa toward the 18 miles
of paving to be taid between Aurora
and Salem, and many comments have
been heard on the streets that the state
highway commission wa attempting to
divert thi money away irom Marion
"Suich comments are rather unkind
toward the highway commission, as all
of the members are fully agreed as to
the importance of the Salem-Aurora
road and it was ti mammon (dy decided
that this was one of the first roads
to be paved on the Pacifie highway.
"The state hinway comnussicn has
agreed with Marion county and with
thn fpdpml oovernmcnt for thi tbtretch
t j of pavement, and all plans and spcrifi-
cations have been prepared and pro-1
pottels received for tha construction
and the final contract has been signed
between the federat government and j
the state for the setting aside of the ;
neesary post road mr.Tieys and Bean-i

Sessions Will Open Sunday
Evening With Fine Pro
gram The committees in charge"of selling
Chautauqua season tickets are calling
on 150 people who believe in Chsutau
qua to help out in taking up this num
ber ef season tickets.
Those who subscribed last season are
meeting their obligations but during
the past year a large number who were
interested in the Chautauqua have
moved away and it is to take up the
season tickets of those not living in
Salem now, that the committee is ask
The Chautauqua will open Sunday
evening with the Old Fiddler playing
war time melodies, but by Sunday af
ternoon, the guarantors for the. Chau
tauqua must have, sold the required
nuaibcr of tickets. This practically
gives but the one more day for dispos
ing of the necessary 150 tickets.
The 15 men who guaranteed the
Chautauqua for this year did so feel
ing that the public was behind them
and ss the matter now stands, there
would have been no call for assistance,
had not so many who had subscribed
for tiekets, moved away during the
The guarantors are Dr. H. C. Epley,
R. A .Harris, E. W. Hazard, E. Cooke
Patton, W. I. Stalcy, Benjamin Brick.
H. H. Vandervort, E. F. Ringo, C. F.
Heimbaugh, Wm. Gnhlsdorf, William
McGilchrist, Jr., Gertrude J. M. Page
and W. A. Denton.
One of the special features of this
year's Chautauqua is the Mother
Goose pageant to be put on the last
day. A woman who has been in this
work several years will have charge of
the ehilds' work and will devote part
of her time to putting on the Mother
Goose pageant with the children who
have attended during the day sessons.
The bur event this year of course is
Thaviu's band for next Thursday af
ternoon and evening for which an ad
mission under ordinary circumstances
would be almost the price of the sea
son ticket this year.
Sunday evening all G. A. K. veterans
their wives and widows of Civil war
veterans will be invited to attend the
Old Fiddlers' entertainment, without
charge. A special section in the big
tent will 'be reserved for them.
However, if the city intends to keep
in line with other progressive cities
of the west and continue to nave tne
advantages of the best Chautauqua in
the west, the committee in charge must
be given assistance in selling the 150
lateness of the season, it was decided
to postpone this work until lurtner in
vestigations could bo made as to the
best means and time for handling the
work, and these investigations are now
ibeing mde and the nignway commis
sion will act upon thetm, in the future.
"The surest proof that the state
higluway commission has tloi intention
of diverting funds from Marion coun
ty is the fact) that this post road was
never requested by any of the Marion
county officials and was offered to
Marion county voluntarily by the state
highway ccuiniission. Furthermore the
stuto highway commission has available
the ntv.tssary pofc road funds for all
its other projects."

Granulated sugar is 10O percent carbohydrates, but,of course, tak

But mixed with nuts or fruit or other things, it is made up into
a palatable and nourishing foad product, called "candy,"
Candy, being composed mainly of fruits, nuts, chocolate and sugar,
is a very highly nutritive food podurta. Different kinds, varying in the
(proportions of sugar, frnrts, nus, etc., vary, therefore, in the propor
tions of carbohydrates, lats, proteins, etc.
G. owing children crave candy because
much fuel hence the craving for eandy.
Men and women who work hard consume much bodily fuel
hence their craving for eandy. (Go into the logging camps, into the
fhipyards, into the army camps if you want to see candy really doing
ite greatest work.)
Candy is establishing itself today as a wendwful food product It is
asserting its right to live because it is the bodily ammunitico which
is speeding the work of raea and women everywhere, because it is
aiding in the normal, healthful growth of children and because it is
