Mrs. Whiteholm has taken possession of her new building and II. Rodgers has moved into her old home. Thompson and Dorweiler are a team. Their store presents a very neat appearance and they are enjoying a big trade. The Ladies Aid Society will meet this week Thursday with Mrs. J. E. Beattie. There was no meeting last week on ac count of rain. Hidgeway & Boyle sold the Jas. Archer farm on Monday, to eastern parties who will occupy the same. The above firm are doing a wholesale business in Kossuth Co. lands. Our Democratic brethren held their caucus on Monday evening, and elected Lou Lillibridge, E. Chrischilles, A. Schmitt and Henry Thompson as delegates to the Democratic Convention. The Christian Endeavor Society now hold their meetings every Sunday evening at 6:30, instead of alternate Sunday and Monday evenings as formerly. Next Sunday evening meeting will be led by Mr. Claire Hotelling. (i. E. Boyle, J. M. Farley, Joe De- Grau and C. C. Samson wercjjthe delegates to the Republican Convention last \veek. While Us work does not quite suit them, they say that they will give the ticket nominated their hearty support. Rev. V. C; Thomas, the new M. E. Pastor, arrived last week with his family and is stopping for the present with Mr. and Mrs. Samson until the parsonage can be got ready for them to live in. Rev. Thomas preached his first sermon last Sunday morning to a fair sized congregation and produced favorable impression upon his hearers. We prophesy that he will be well liked in Whittemore, and we welcome him and his family to our town. Muxcu-GoBTScii.—At the School House, Whittemore, Iowa, Wednesday evening, Sept., 30, 1891, by O. M.Thrasher pastor of the Baptist church, Mr. John H. Munch and Miss Bertha A. Goetsch both of Whittemore. Wednesday evening the School House was filled to overflowing with the best of Whitteniore's young people to witness the marriage of Mr. John Munch and Miss Bertha Goetsch. The contracting parties are too well known in this community for the writer to make any comments, but will say they are highly esteemed and the bride is an earnest Christian worker and member of the Baptist church. It was strictly a young people's wedding, they only being invited, with the exception of relatives. After the marriage ceremony at the school house they retired at once to the residence of the bride's .parents, and there in their commodious purlers entertained about sixty as happy young people as you often see. The bride was arrayed in lovely white silk dress, while a wreath of llowers and bridal veil adorned her head, and white slippers encased her feet. They sent out their invitations later than is customary wishing in that way to avoid the reception of presents; but in that they were thwarted. An elegant bed-room suite and numerous other valuable articles were presented. As for the refreshments • well, I venture the assertion, those tables never bore such a complete success, in the line oi' eatables, as they did that night. We wish this young couple a long and happy life. AVKSLKY. Dr. McCorinack is a Wesley visitor. Mrs. Z. S. Barrett returned Saturday from Des Moines.

Grandma Hollenbeck starts tonight for Manitowoc, Wisconsin, to spend the winter with her oldest son. Mrs. H. C. Holleubeck goes to Sioux City today, to view the Corn Palace and visit her sister, Mrs. Townley. E. R. Dickinson is now hero settling with his retiring tenant and introducing his new tenant to his new duties. Miss Anna Longbottom, who has been quite sick with pleurisy and neuralgia, is a little more comfortable today. R. P. Chapin's family went to Algona last Wednesday, to attend the wedding of Mrs. Chapin's niece, Grace Young. A post office inspector put in a sudden and unexpected appearance last Friday morning and found everything satisfactory. Fred M. Bacon, salesman for Lawson & Oleson Bros., is back from a visit of several weeks with friends at Oxford Junction. Grandpa Bacon, who has been making a long visit in Dakota, is with us again. He was sick while away and is looking quite feeble. Some of the thoughtful neighbors came together this morning and cut up J. James' corn for him as he is still unable to work. Mr. T. Presnell, who was so very ill some weeks ago, is now able to be around, but is not yet strong enough to resume work. Charles Marcks, who has been living for many years on the Dickinson place south of town, has moved on a farm of his own east of town. The new Catholic school house begins to shew its size and style now that it is enclosed and the roof is on, and it makes a fine appearance. F. M. Butts and T. C.

He received $33 per acre for the land that he paid §25 for last year. Obed Robinson and wife go west today to visit a daughter and the' Corn Palace at Sioux City. Mr. and Mrs. Robinson were among our earliest settlers and have endured many hardships. We rejoice to find them solacing their later years with recreation of so pleasant a nature. Four or five drunken men made night hideous and life a burden to decent pen pie last Sunday evening. Wouldn't it be well for somi.1 one to look around and ascertain where they procure their drink? It is however, but justice to Wesley, to state that some of the above named came from Britt and perhaps they brought their whiskey with them. Those who relish this state of things and wish to see it continued, should vote the straight Democratic ticket. The new depot no.wMft' f»focesfe ion. 'Tis better late than never,. Scott WJckham was called away on Thursday by a telegram 'announcing hfe wife's illness. Perry M. Rankin reached his old home at Ledyard on Friday after an absence of about three months in Dakota. He reports crops good in that part of the ountry. Mr. Hallock, known to the readers of the REPUBLICAN through his former connection with that paper, has been stopping with his family at Mr. Arthur Bige- ow's for a few days. October, 5th. PRICES SEVENTY YEAES AGO. Washington special, 28: While the government crop statistician, Prof. Dodge, was taking his vacation last month he found something that will interest the armers of today. The discovery was the day book of one Hezekiah Fellow, whp kept a country store in Webster, a iiill town of NewIIampshire. From this day book some of the items charged by Mr, Fellows against farming customers were selected. They serve to show what the prices were seventy years ago for the things most used by the farmers. The interest in them lies in a comparison with what is paid for similar articles today. The items appear in Mr. Fellows day book as follows: One-half bushel herd's grass $ r>; One pound collee 2; Three-fourths pound loaf sugar Bl One-fourth pound tea 2i One-fourth pound powder 1' One-fourth pound shot Fifteen eggs Half dozen plates — Three pounds cotton yarn, No.O 2.2" One nutmeg 13 Three hoes l.oi Twenty-eight pounds llsh 1.25 Oiie-iointl) yard cotton lining... One yard flannel Twelve peui'l buttons Oittj-haU yard cambric One skein silk One mid aluiif yards calico One-half yard muslin Four and three-fourths yards fulleil cloth One gill N. Ji. rum Eight yards black silk Four yards calico Five yards cambric — 4.0. Twelve yards shirting 3- One gallon W. 1. rum 1.* One pound sugar • 2 One felthat 1.0 Two spelling books 5 Two pounds vetvl ° One ounce indigo 2 One-fourth pound Hyson tea 4 Five yards ualico 9 - " Among the items of credit is one tha suggests the ruling rate of wages per daj for laberers in that community. Heze kiah Fellows credits one of his customers with "one half day's work, 25 cents." In that same region the cheapest farm laborer is now receiving $1 a day, and $1.75 in the harvest. Seventy years ago one day's work would purchase one yard of good calico or two yards of the cheapest, while now an hour's work in haying or harvest will buy two yards of calico. If a farmer needed a garden hoe he could possibly trade veal for it at 3 cents a pound retail, and that would make his hoe cost him thirty-three pounds of veal, unless the storekeeper insisted on a wholesale price for veal, in which event the farmer would have to give more veal. Thirty-three pounds of veal, or the price of it, would buy half a dozen hoes today. 08 02 17 34 08 75 42 7.9L H 8.0i Burt Republican H. B. HAX/LOOK* Kclltor.

October 5th. The Advent of a Reformer. "Waiter, will you please bring me a hammer?" The loud, imperious voice rang sharply through the gilded dining hall. A hundred pairs of" eyes looked up in astonishment. The rattle of knives, forks and spoons ceased. The hum of conversation died away. Even the appetizing odors that hung over the Insurious tables seemed to loose their hold oil the senses, and a score of petrified waiters stood holding in their petrified hands petrified trays covered with petrified roasts steaks, sandwiches, vegetables, fruits anx pastry. "A hammer, if you please, •waiter," again rang out the imperious voice. "Wh-what do you want of a hammer?" stammered the waiter addressed, finding his tongue at last. "I want it," exclaimed the guest, with grim resolution written in every wrinkle of his rugged face, "to break up this powdered sugar!"—Chicago Tribune. Mrs. Isaac Cork's mother is making ;ier a visit. Go to Ostvander's for anything in the Harness line. Will James left Monday for his home in Green, Iowa.

ESiF'A good stock and reasonable prices, IOWA ftBPPBttCAM PCATPOftttt ' Adopted at Cedar Bapida July t. M»| flhe ftcpubiloafi party of Iowa, to Y«ntion assembled, gives renewed « skm of devotion to the principles national Republican party, and d acceptance of those principles tcbatha bond of union with the Republican pa*ty of Iowa. We commend the patriotic, wise and courageous administration of President' Harrison. We commend the Republican party ta the last congress for its redemption o< pledges made to the people as to a revision . of the tariff in the Interest of home industry, and for its work in behatf of liberal provision for pensions for the old soldiers, in accordance with the pledges ot the nation. We approve the coinage act, by which the entire tfroduct of the silver mines of •• the United States is added to the currency of the people, and out of which experiment may come a wise adjustment or"' financial questions liberal towards west/- trn interests. We commend most heartily the policy that has been inaugurated Looking to reciprocal trade relations with other peoples.. of the American continent, and the administrative efforts now making for the enlargement of foreign markets for Aniev- . lean beef and pork. We assert that the Republican party stands of record in every state of this Union In favor of elections bused upon the freedom of the individual conscience of tbe- citizen, and that the Republican party may be trusted in Iowa or in any state, t/o promote any plan" of reform, Australiatr ' 6r other, caTcrnated to extend thia llbert-yr and to further protect the purity of *be. ballot. While inviting to our shores the worthy poor and oppressed of all nations, we earnestly commend laws that protect our 1 ' country and our people against the influx of the vicious and criminal classes of foreign nations and the importation of laborers under contract to compete with our citizens; and earnestly approve the . rigid enforcement of these laws and of such further legislation as may be necessary. We favor such legislation as will trr>- pose upon all classes of property, corpo- • rate and. individual, equally the burdens of taxation. We favor the passage of the Conger lard • bill; state legislation tending to promote farmers' institutes and enlarging the- powers of the dairy commissioner. We regard the world's Columbian exposition. as an important event in the world's' history, and weai-e in hearty sympathy with every ciloi-t to make it a success? and in the friendly rivalry of states we should make a creditable exhibit of Iowa's- products. And we favor a liberal appropriation by the next general assembly for this purpose, "that our prosperity and; greatness may be fully exemplified." We take pride in the record of this state; we recognize that its growth and power, its prosperity and its good name, have been the fruits of its industrial people. and we believe in such policies, state- ana national, as will promote justice and wider opportunity among these classes, To their support, in the future" as in the past, we pledge our most intelligent judgment and most sincerp endeavor. We point to the record of the state under Republican administration for justification in the declaration that we favor economy and honesty in the administration of public affairs: to that record, G-EO.

MAYHEW, Proprietor, for judgment that the Republican party has kept faith with the people in the obligations of the past, and upon that record the Republican party invites continued support and confidence. We have no apologies to offer to the people, nor to the Democratic party, for the Republican record on the conspicuous issue in the state campaign this year. ''In the interests of true temperance," and unr- de.r the laws of Iowa, enacted by the representatives of its sovereign people, tbe saloon was made an outlaw in this state. we charge that the outlaw has had the patronage, counsel and protection of the Democratic party: that . the Democratic party, as it has won power, has nullified the law, defied the authority of tbe state and. the expressed will of the people, a»d that now appeal is made to the electors of the whole state for approval of the lawless work. We recognize that the issue is law against defiance of law, subordination against insubordination— the state of Iowa against the Democratic party. We recognize that the issue is between "the inter-. ests of true temperance" aud the freedom and rule of indiscriminate traffic. We renew our allegiance to the people of Iowa, and submit to them the determination of the issue, recognizing that the control of the next legislature by the Democratic party means state-wide license, and that; the control of the next legislature by tbe Republican party means a continuance of opposition to the behests of the saloon power, through the maintenance and enforcement of the law. We denounce the Democratic party of Iowa as insincere in its dealings with the saloon issue. We charge that party with service to the saloon and purpose to strengthen ita grasp upon the homes and politics o.£ the stato. We cite in proof of thia its surrender this ya;ir of the local option feature of the plank of 1889, under which last year pretense of indorsement by the state was made, and to which pledge was given in petition for legislative authority. We charge that this abandonment of local option is the forerunner of further nremeditated betrayal, and that trust in the Democratic party will end in complete breaking dowu of the temperance legislation of the state, and a complete turning over of the state, in every township thereof, to the pollution and fester of tbe saloon, against whatever protest of communities now free. We protest against the re-election Of Horace Boies to the governorship of Iowa. We charge that in his unwise and ambitious zeal to cultivate the favor of alleged "new allies in the northwest," and upon that strength to commend himself to the favoring graces of Grover Cleveland, that be did most outrageously misrepresent the honest, industrious, frugal and prosperous people of Iowa in his Re lor m club banquet speech In the city of New York on the 33d of December last. We denounce as put- posely misleading the alleged statistics with which the governor assumed to su>- tain the indictment against the state which had dignified his name. We denounce the Ottumwa platform of this year as framed with dull Derate purpose to mislead and deceive, wherein sym : nathyis expressed wfcore none is.felt; wuere- ft i help Tia proposed wbore none is rendered: wherein pwposes are avowed which , are npt entertained. In svmport ot this indictment we point to the pretended friendship for the soldiers, and to the arrttignmenv at tUe same nine of the Republican party for having appropriated money for th« payment o! pensions; to the "tree silver" plant, intended to deceive t!je supporters of "free and unlimited coinage of silver;" to the plank assuming to "affirm t'ae doctrine of control and regulation of railroads." a policy implanted upon the state under tneaamimstvation of the last Republican governor against ttie opposition, secret and open, of the Democratic party, extending, to an alii- ----- ^ --- \veriutUefirstelection Good Accommodations.
