Peck was reelected county superintendent of schools at the annual meeting of Allamakee school presidents held In Waukon Saturduy. Robert Dickson, for many years a resident of the Hardin community, passed at Independence this week and funeral services will be held here on Friday. The mercury has stood at 80 degrees here since last Saturday. Most storm windows have been removed and screens put on in their stead. Gardeners are busy, too. Prospects for a high bridge over the Mississippi river at Prairie du Chicn. Wis., seem brighter since the Wisconsin legislature passed a resolution asking Congress to approve such a structure at that point. Mr. and Mrs. Hans Larson of Clermont, well known to most of our readers through their long residence in this community, observed their golden wedding anniversary last Wednesday. L. F. Putnam was elected chief of the Postville Volunteer Fire department at the annual meeting held Monday night. Wm. J. Klingbeil is the new assistant chief; Adolph Koevenig is jecretary-treasurer. Stipt. G. W. Hunt who has made it known that he is giving up school work, has passed the state bar examination and at the close of the school year he and his family expect to move to Guttenberg where he will enter into partnership with Charles E. Scholz. The new law firm will be known as'Scholz & Hunt. The grading crews began work on the three-mile stretch of road north of town, preparing it for permanent improvement.

Fifty Years Ago. Interesting Items taken from the files of "The Graphic," published In Postville, April 9, 1890. John C. Thoma is heeding Horace Greeley's admonishment and has gone west to seek his fortune.

At the annual conference of the United Brethren church held at Ot tumwa last week Rev. W. D. Hartsough was retained as presiding elder for this, the Toledo district. Rev. E. Harper has been appointed as pastor for the Castalia charge. In the future the Postville town marshal is to receive $50 per month. That may seem to some as been excessive pay. but it should be under stood that the marshal must be on the job every day from early morning un til midnight. In addition, he must look after the street lamps, act as machinist at the town pumping station and insure that a sufficient supply of water is maintained in the tank at all times. He must also collect all water bills when due. Would you do all that for $50.00? The following business firms are carrying an advertisement in today's paper: J. E. Hughes & Son, butchers Dr. W.
