MacMillan, Prop J ; Castalia, Iowa • i Sgfs taken for cash or trade! J • • Twenty-million people dwelt in these United States when Iowa was admitted into the Union on December 28. 1846. During this "Year of Decision" the country was a veritable cauldron seething with political, social, economic, and religious unrest. The Mexican War broke out in 1840 while the blatant cry of "Fifty-four Forty or Fight" was finally settled in a compromise treaty with Great Britain. In 1846 Abraham Lincoln was elected to Congress, the very year the Wilmot Proviso was introduced—an attempt to forbid the extension of slavery into any territory acquired from Mexico. The temperance movement and the , women's rights crusade were in full ( swing, abolition was rampant, and religious cults like the Milleriles had sprung up throughout the land. The repercussions of these events was felt in the youthful Territory of Iowa. Across southern Iowa from Nauvoo to the mighty Missouri streamed the Mormons in 1846 on their great trek to Utah. In western Iowa the U. S. Army recruited the Mormon battalion which was destined to march from Fort Leavenworth through Santa Fe to California. Many lowans joined the innumerable caravans that moved westward to Oregon in 1846. A description of Iowa and the nation is given by Dr. H. J. Thornton in the Jan-, uary, 1946, issue of "The Palimpsest." Other things were happening a cen- tuary ago. Charles Goodyear perfected the process of vulcanizing rubber and Elias Howe patented his sewing machine. Hoe's rotary press appeared in 1848 and in that same year the Smithsonian Institution was established in Washington. The effectiveness of gas in surgery was demonstrated in the Massachusetts General Hospital in 1846. During the "Fabulous Forties" many colleges were established in the United States, the settlers in the old Black Hawk Purchase pointing with' pride to Iowa Wesleyan at Mt. Pleasant and Iowa College (now Grinnell) at Davenport. The world was moving at a rapid pace in 1846 and youthful Iowa was quick to get In stride. The best bargain—A Horald Want ad. They get results.' Mrs. Letta Padden of Postville spent this week at the Sarah Miller home. Leslie Allen is starting Monday morning as assistant cheesemaker at the factory here. Mrs. Georgia Clark, Mrs. Lydia Carrol and Mrs. Mabel Cyr, all of Minnesota, who were here to attend the funeral of Mrs. Almira Wolfe, returned to their homes on Friday. Mr. and Mrs. Lloyd Wolfe accompanied them to Calmar. Mrs. Leo Birdsell was called to Peterson Thursday on hearing of the death of her nephew, Harry Breese, who was injured in a motorcycle and car crash accident last Sunday and passed away on Tuesday at a hospital in Storm Lake. His mother, Mrs. Lewis Breese, will be remembered as the former Bessie Nash, a daughter of Dr. and Mrs. Nash, who moved away from here about 27 years ago. Funeral services were held in Peterson on Friday, March 8. AIRPLANE, WALKY-TALKIES USED IN GAME PATROL This year Iowa Conservation Of fleers are using an airplane and numerous short wave radios, in addition to automobiles and motorboats, in guar anteeing safe passage through Iowa of the half million blue and snow geese now gradually working northward along the Missouri River bottoms. The plane is the personal property of Kay Setchell, conservation officer and former army pilot instructor. Equipped with a two-way radio, the plane reports to similarly equipped motorboats and automobiles relative to illegal hunting. Because of the almost bottomless gumbo roads in some of the favorite goose concentration areas, it has been almost impossible to check illegal shooting. Reports from the airplane patrol, will definitely, make spring goose hunting a hazardous occupation. The spring goose patrol along the Missouri River is in cooperation with the states of Missouri; South Dakota, and Nebraska, and the United States Fish and Wild Life Service. • LONG TIME. A letter written to Mrs. Sherman Wiokre of Reinbeck advising that her husband had been hospitalized at Kremf, Austria, was received recently. The letter written on January 10, 1945, arrived in Reinbeck on February 25, 1946. Wickre, in the letter had written about an operation on his hand necessitated by a machine gun Are wound. Four months after her husband's discharge, Mrs. Wickre received the letter telling about the operation.

Spirit Lake Massacre Terrified Iowa Pioneers Early in March. 1857, the shrill war whoop of Sioux Indians rang out on Lake Okoboji. Hungry to the point of starvation, miserably cold from the hitter winter of 18515-1857, and resentful of the presence of the white mail in northwestern towa. the Sioux, led by Chief (ttkpadttta. fell upon the helpless inhabitants of the Okoboji-Spirit Lake district, murdered and mutilated thirty-two men, women, and children, and led four hapless women captives away as slaves. It was the bloodiest Indian massacre in Iowa history. The Spirit Lake Massacre, as it is known by lowans today, began on March 8th at West Okoboji near the place now known as Pillsbury Point. Harvey Luce and Robert Clark were probably the first two victims to die as they went to warn settlers in the .Mattock home. The Gardner cabin was then entered by nine stalwart Indians. The three older inhabitants were killed in cold blood and scalped in Die sight of the terrified children. The two Luce children were then beaten to death against door posts and the trunks of trees. Fourteen-year- old Abbie Gardner was led forth into captivity. Meanwhile a similar scene was enacted at the Mattock home where six adults and five children lost their Uy* The Howe cabin and the Notft. Thatcher cnbln were then attacked m the eastern shore of the lake, final net i» the trngedy occurred March 13th when the Indians attacku the William Marble cabin mi the s ^ of Spirit Lake.

Jim Klein, Mason City, driver for a Clear Lake bakery, reported to police the theft of his automobile. He had left it parked in front of his home but on arising one morning recently, the car was nowhere in sie,ht. After reporting the loss, Klein started on his regular route, stopping in Britt to obtain the engine number from the previous owner. The police discovered the car—in a neighbor's garage. The car had rolled downhill, narrowly missing a tree and came to a stop in the M. C. Turner garage nearly a block away. Farmers who tried DDT last year for (lies were generally well pleased and most of them plan to use it again in 1948. 1,1 Announcement We wish to thank our many friends for their kind patronage and cooperation during our management of White Springs Bull- room.
