And still the town booms right along. We were a little surprised last week to notice that the Eduxirs of the Courier and Upper Des Moines were mentioning our name in connection with the editorial chair of the HISPUIVLICAN.

Thanks awfully for the compliment gentlemen, A proof that Northern Iowa is booming is the fact that new men are constantly embarking in the real estate business. F. A.

While the Governor was reviewing the troops some men hired a boy with some popcorn to give his Honor a package of the same. The boy with great pride strutted up to the Chief Magistrate and said, "Here is some corn you can have to teach yourself that we can raise corn in Iowa." The Governor replied, "Was it raised at a profit or at a loss?" The boy's answer was, "At a profit you bet." The Union Gospel Temperance meeting held under the auspices of the I. O. G. T. was a success. Bev. Bichie delivered a very fine address. Among the things lie said were that the majority of the U. S. medical profession which met at New York declared that alcohol could be dispensed with, and all through he proved conclusively that alcohol was not needed in modern civilization. Bev.

Don't mention sand to Wesley because it might make them sick. Ye scribe of the Gimlet rushed into print last week to describe the actions of an after dark foot racer, but was to bashful and modest to state that it was himself, although of course everybody knew whom he meant.

He has simply run foot races in his imagination as it were. Well Verne we have always thought that those long legs ought to be good for something else be- Loans and Insurance.
