Miss Caroline Wesley started for Cedar Falls yesterday to take a three years teachers' course in the State Normal school. While the patrons of schools dislike to see our best teachers leave they will be glad to know that Kossuth has the class of teachers that try to advance in the profession (for such it is) as much as possible. School commenced last Monday with J. F. Doderer in the principal's department with Miss Salisbury as assistant while Miss Wallace is in her old room. Miss Vinton is in the second primary and Miss Kennedy takes the place of Miss Byrne in the lirst primary. This promises to be a very successful term of school. HOIKS' KEY NOTE, The great key note of the campaigrf compel it to submit to the cnrse of sa- loonism through "the towns, townships which Democracy waited to hear sounded by Governor Boies has at last been struck. It chords with all that which has brought Democracy into disrepute in the best communities. The Sioux City Journal in discussing the address says: Governor Boies in his speech at Cherokee undertook to sound "the key note" for the Democrats. His key note consisted of two parts —Whisky and corn. As to the first part, the whisky part, the governor rather reiterates the key note of the Democratic platform. He signifies that he is with the Democratic bosses and the saloon bosses who devised that platform. The governor stands for the spread of the legalized saloons into all counties of the state, no matter how large the adverse temperance majority may be, in which there may be a tough town or a rotten township to authorize saloons. All the governor's fine talk about permitting localities to decide for themselves is the boldest deception, for it means nothing but that no county in Iowa is to be permitted to rid itself of or to keep out saloons, but that "tho towns, townships, and municipal corporations," to use the language of tho platform which Governor Boies deliberately and repetitiously indorses, may thrust saloons into unwilling localities and counties. There are dozens of such counties in Iowa, beyond dispute. In his speech yesterday even the governor says: "If experience can demonstrate anything it is now established that this [Iowa prohibitory] law can be reasonably well enforced where public sentiment is largely in its favor, and that it is so enforced in such localities." But the 'governor is pledged to the Democratic platform, and he repledges himself by his speech yesterday, to a policy which binds hand and foot temperance majorities in any county in Iowa, and to and municipal corporations," the only places in which in any event saloons are set up. That issue is plain. The people of Iowa know what indorsement of the Democratic party means. An endorsement of tho Democratic party in the coming election would mean that the people of Iowa want saloons thrust into every county. Let no man now or hereafter pretend that the issue was misunderstood. The second part of Governor Boies' speech—strangely enough—is not a reiteration of his Keokuk speech.wherain, after a record of life-long Bepublicanism, he suddenly declared his adhesion to Bob Tootnbsism and solid southism in its most despotic phases; nor yet is it alteration of his Davenport speech, wherein he virtually declared that the government should by force prevent railroad employes from exercising the right to quit work. It is a declaration of allegiance and discipleship to Janies B. Sovereign, whom Governor Boies is said to have declared to be not fit for the office to Which he appointed him. Governor Boies stands by his Wall street speech, wherein he represented that Iowa farming during five years preceding 1890 had been carried on at an enormous annual net loss. The governor indicates that he will rest his present opposition to tho tariff system, which ho supported for twenty-five years, on his New York representation of Iowa farming. Of course the governor, if he touches that subject at all, has to avoid all current market quotations. But the central point is the whisky point, and the governor says: "This question ought not to be hampered by party affiliations." Ah, governor, that won't do. The game was played on Be- publicans two years ago, but it won't succeed again. -Agent for- avery Call on him and get prices and terms. He can suit you in the selection of both wild and improved lands. S. W. Callanan, Bancroft, Iowa. OBITUARY. Nun Carpenter was born in Hartford, Connecticut, in 1860, but at an early age his family removed to Cleveland, Ohio, that city being a mere, hamlet at the time; and while living there he distinctly remembered the noise of Perry's cannon in the celebrated battle with the English at that place. While living at this place he was married and moved to Missouri in 1844, and after living there three years in 1847 he moved to Wisconsin and worked at the carpenter trade in that state for some time, during which time he received injuries from a fall that have been permanent in their effects. He came to Iowa in 1876 and has thus lived in'Kossuth county for the last sixteen years. He was a very quiet, gentle sort of a man, and in his later years his whole consolation was in reading the Bible, it being his favorite book. He died last Friday night of senile gangrene. The funeral services were held at Burt and were conducted by Bev. Faus of that place, assisted by Bev. Cummins of this place. There were present at the funeral seven of his children and there were more who could not be reached in time for the funeral. A large number of people attended the funeral services of this one of the county's best citizens. 1~«»»-^ BUSINESS LOCALS.
