Special Correspondence, BUUT, April 14.—The Teachers' Association held ut Burt, April 7th, was opened by Supt. Bertha Carey, making a few remarks, followed by singing. Miss Abbie Goodwin presented an interesting paper on "Objects of Keci- tation." An interesting discussion followed, participated in by Mrs. Hall and Misses Salisbury and Angus. The discussion was close by Supt. Carey reading an article from the afternoon chapel talks at Grinnel. The dinner liour having arrived, further discussion was postponed until afternoon. Meeting opened at 1:16 p. m. with a song by members of the association, followed by a duet by Messrs Blanchard and Nicholson, (citizens of Burt.) Miss Salisbury read an excellent paper on "The Books I Have Read in the Past and what I have Gained by them." The Burt Glee Club favored us with a song. A. A. Grose led a lively discussion on "Legitimate Means of Obtaining Attention," followed by Miss McNeal and others. It was discussed under too parts. 1st, how to gain attention of parents; 2nd, how to gain attention of pupil. County Uniformity was discussed by citizens as well as teachers. It was resolved "that the teachers write articles for the different county papers, for and against county tvniformity for the purpose of bringing the subject before the people." Supt. Bertha Carey gave a very instructive lesson in the "Synthetic" method of teaching reading, after which the association adjourned feeling it had been a success.

KMOKK, April 14.—Hurrah for McKinley and cheap sugar! Nineteen pounds of granulated sugar for $1 at Whittemore. This is the result of the new tariff law which benefits the laboring man and the farmer. Who will say aught against the McKinley bill now? Mrs. Yale is absent visiting her old home and friends at Mellette, S. D. Messrs. Ridgway and Boyle have formed a copartnership in the banking, insurance and real estate business. II. Munch and daughter Lettie started last Sunday evening for an extended visit with relatives and friends in Illinois. We are sorry to state that Mr. Munch is yet in very poor health. A first-class harness maker or shoe maker can find a good location in Whittemore. Let us not forget to go and hear the lecture Thursday evening. This lecturer is sent out by the State Temperance Alliance and comes very highly recommended. About next week Tuesday we may listen for marriage bells in this vicinity, and this week Wednesday bend your ear southward toward the city of West Bend. We wish all these young people great joy and happiness. II. Dailey has his new barn nearly completed. Mrs. Ridgway and child have gone to Ramsay to be absent several weeks. Rev. Call preached in the school house last Sunday morning. He now lives at Rodman and will endeavor to preach regularly hereafter every alternate Sabbatli morning at 10 o'clock. Teachers' association met here last Wednesday according to appointment. Superintendent Carey, Mr. Sifert of Wesley and Mr. Platt of LuVerne were among the visitors. A very interesting and instructive meeting was held, although it was quite noticeable that nearly all the teachers who had been appointed to assist on the programme made themselves conspicuous by their absence. Miss Minnie Newman returned from Highland Park normal college last Thursday quite ill with a very sore throat and symptoms resembling those of diphtheria. She is at present slowly improving. We are reminded that spring is approaching. Robins are Hying in the air and, only a few days since, a "plug hat brigade" was seen parading the streets of Whittemore. The poor robins flew unusually high that day, and as they have not since been seen, fears are entertained that they were so badly frightened that they may not return again this year. Oh, boys! very creditable corps of city officers, two of whom are prohibitionists. So you see that even Spokane is slowly creaping up out of the slums. The Great Northern railroad is expected to build into the city this season. This with fifteen miles of electric street railway that is projected, will give the city the appearance of thrift, tit least for a year to come. The tide of immigration is already setting in quite strong. The N. P. R. R. Co. alone report that they land about 50 persons daily in Spokane. All of course do not remain here, but settle in the country tributary to this city. They put on another daily passenger train the last of the month, to accommodate the increasing traffic. Spokane is now adopting a course that she should have adopted long ago. And that is holding out great inducements to manufacturing industries. Two have already been secured this spring, and eastern capitalists and manufacturers in many lines, are now here and have been in the city this spring investigating the many openings for various articles that can be easily manufactured here. It has been a source of great gratification to me this winter, to have had an opportunity to stand up as a champion for prohibition in Iowa. The editor of the Review of this city seemed determined to misrepresent the general tendency of the effect of prohibition in that state, and I took it upon myself to try and expose through a series of letters, many of his false statements, and erroneous impressions. I am also gratified at finding a very strong and earnest element of workers in the temperance cause in this city, and in the surrounding country. But the elimination of the saloon, as a factor in the civilization of this country, especially in the large cities of the state is a consummation scarcely to beexpect- ed, at least in the near future. I expected to have written of other mattters, but business claims my time and so I will have to defer it till a more eonveniant season. J. M. COMSTOCK. Something that Will Pay To look at.

After looking over the foregoing list of Manufacturers and Dealers, all of whom are represented by the man who pays the freight, you cannot fail to appreciate the advantages you can reap by buying your implements of the Oldest Implement House in northern Iowa. I represent the best goods made in each department. DGYOOWANTIT? A telegram from Sheffield England dated April 13th, states that the employes of the Wostenholm cutlery works have struck, on account of a reduction of 5 per cent, in their wages, due to a loss of trade because of "the new American tariff." They can't get their goods in here in competition with the home made article and pay the duty without reducing the wages of their employes. Who pays the tariff? BO YOU WANT A BICYCLE? Victors are the best. They lead the World. If you want a medium grade wheel, buy a Gredenda. All ball bearing —Victor cushion tires to both wheels. Jos. W. HAYES, Agt.

CATALOGUE FOR 1891. 21 )bs. of choice CASH STOIIE. sugar for $1.00 at the A LETTER FROM SPOKANE. SPOKANE,-'Wash:, March 29,1891. Editor Republican: So much time has elapsed since my last communication that I may need an introduction to many of my Mends. But they say that, "the evil that men do, lives after them." So perhaps on that score I may be still cherished in the hearts of some of my countrymen. I \vas surprised upon taking up this morning's paper to see that Kansas, Nebraska and Iowa were again being visited by a severe snow storm. The snow disappeared from the valley of Spokane nearly two weeks ago and since, the weather has been very fine. The snow still lingers upon the mountains around us and is a novel sight when one is living in the sunshine with the thermometer at 50 to GO degrees. The frost is all out of the ground and the early spring blossoms are seen upon every hand. The farmers are preparing to seed, and owing to the fall of snow and rain, are in high expection of another big crop. If this has been a fair sample of the Washington winters, one can find but little to complain of. While on one or two mornings the thermometer was 10 degrees below zero,it did not seem at all cold as it was still, and a thin summer over coat was all the extra clothing that one needed. The great building boom of last year will not be repeated in 1891. The principle building will be residences. There are a large number already contracted, aud some are well under way at the present time. March 24th was really a red letter day for this city. It was a municipal election, for the election of a complete set of officers, adoption of a new charter, and for dropping the "Falls" from the name of the city. It is now simply ," with a new charter ana a Purifies the blood, increases the circulation,expels poisonous humors and builds up the system. What.more do you want a medicine to perform?
