The patronage of the business men has been liberal and we have no kick on that scoie, only the facUhat there wasn't enough of' them.'

A bill was allowed for $14 for a jail hammock or specially constr ucted bed and and repairs to other hammocks and it was a just bill. We are assured that this is the truth by the sheriff and county clerk. Lft us have fair play all around. ' There is, nothing to he gained b v misrepresentation. Hiawatha World.
