The further delay in the return of the remaining American troops on the Rhine, while displeasing in one way, still carries the touch that flatters our pride. Various reasons have been assign- ed for the delay but there can be lit- tle question but that the reluctance of the inlmbitanCs of the occupied ter- ritory to see Americans displaced by other, troops was a factor. The GQr- roans are naturally eager to have all the troops of the Allied and associa- ted powers out o[ the country, but seem to prefer American occupation to that of other nations. It is pleasant to feel that Ameri- can troops prove the most agreeable and the least overhearing. There is no excuse from a military standpoint or under international law for con- tinuance of ,American occupation un- der terms of the armistice, but to kncw that mericans are able to ad- just themselves to the proper terms of relationship under the Rhin e condi- tions is an augury for continued peacefulness in our relations with oth- er powers. THE ORTONVILLE INDEPENDENT i NEWS and COMMENT 11 By THE INDEPENDENT tl .__.  _.. ___ ..I Rats Too Plentiful In Canby Drainage Meeting at New Ulm. At the drainage meeting at New I of Canby in a letter to The News of that city. "I suggest that Canby or- ganize for an exterminating rat hunt, o begin in the very near future and to continue for at least 30 days. Ap- point captains and divide the town into three zones. BuD' the dead rats and preserve their tails to be count- ed at the end of the contest. Each side to be awarded suitable prizes and the losers to banquet the win- hers." His suggestion while a little astray of the general run of sports if carried out would furnish both sport and at least partial riddance of a cost-" ly enemy. Diamond Jubilee Well Attended.

Columbian Iiotel Saturday, June 3. suiting engineer of the state depart- ment, explained in detail to a large number of citizens the proposed plan of the state in carrying for the" flood waters of the Minnesota River and its tributaries.

You May Pay More--But You Will Not Get a Better Battery -- Than the Globe Auto Battery AN automobile storage battery like the proverbial chain, is only as strong as its weakest link. Long life and dependa- ble service is not the result of individual o/outsta_nding features of construction, but is the result of the manufacturer having comprehensive knowledge of the storage battery art, and then combining that knowledge with pure materials, careful work xnanship and the intent to make the highest quality battery possible in every detail of manufacturing processes, from the first operation with the raw materials, to the packing and shipping of the finished pro- duct. Globe Auto Batteries by their specifications indicate that the fundamental requisites of battery quality enter into their construction, and the long life and vice they give, the car owner is positive proof of the full measure bf this in- herent quality.

They, for: some unknown reason, were only allowed to e s01d on two days each year and being hand made, were high i n price. So it be- came a custom for money to be given to women at their marriage to be used for the pur- chase of pins. Today pins are cheap but the custom of giving women small sums for personal ex- pense still exists. That was the 14th century; this is the 20th century. Today the women are politi- cal and social equals of men and should be financial equals as well: A the head of your household she should own a check- ing account and not be given just "Pin Money."
