Mrs. Freeman has a young son, born Oct. !). Whiltemore would present a much better appearance to strangers and to everyone else if the merchants will close their places of business on Sunday.

Booth has sold his stock of drugs and rented his store building to a Des Moines party. He is going to erect a new store building for himself just east of the old oue, in which he will put a complete stock of groceries. There was a wonderful two pound in fant on exhibition in an emigrant wagon on our streets last Monday. The bahy was certainly a very diminutive specimen of humanity. Our teachers had their schools photographed oue day last week. We don't know whether the pictures will be for sale or not. If they are, probably everybody will want one except parties living near the school house, who may see and hear enough of the children without wishing to perpetuate their memory. Mrs. V. C.

Mrs. Thomas took Sunday evening's train for thet place hut on reaching Mason City found there was no Monday morning train on which she could continue her journey, and as she could not reach home until after her mother was buried, she returned to Whittemore Monday morning.

The Phenomenal Success Achieved by this Firm is to IJB attributed to; 1st—The utmost care that is given in selecting and buying none but the best of materials. 3d—The best of workmanship in all their branches. 3d—By the combination and practical use of the most important improvements made. In this manner we effect the most obtainable result in regard to quality and durability. Our instruments have a rich volume of tone, pure and of long sustaining, singing quality. Our cases are double veneered inside and outside, thus avoiding the checking and warping. Our key-bottoms are framed together like a door, and therefore Abound to keep straight. Our patent music rack is the plainest and yet most serviceable in existence Our patent fall board is a novelty arid of the most practical usefulness. The patent repeating action is highly appreciated by expert players, as well as by scholars. The patent tuning-pin fastening, only used in our pianos, is the most important improvement ever invented; the tuning pin being inserted only in the full iron frame thus lessening the liability of stretching and loosing of the springs, so commonly found in pianos with wooden wrest planks. We challenge the world that our piano will stand longer in tune than any other made iu the ordinary way. Special prices to introduce these pianos where we have no agent. Good agents wanted.

Adopted at Cedar Rapids July 1.1301 The Republican party of Iowa, in ftotj. vention assembled, gives renewed expression of devotion to the principles of the national Republican party, and declares) acceptance of those principles to be fciie bond of union with the Republican party of Iowa. Wo commend tbe patriotic, wise and courageous administration of President Harrison. We commend the Republican party in the last congress for its redemption of pledges made to the people as to a revision of the tariff in the interest of home industry, and for its work in behalf of liberal provision for pensions for the old soldiers, in accordance with the pledges f .\t the nation. We approve the coinage act, by which the entire product of the silver mines of Mie United States is added to the currency of tho people, and out of which experiment may come a wise adjustment of financial questions liberal towards west- irn 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 foreiga markets tor American beef and pork. We assert that the Republican party stands of record in every state of this Union iu favor of elections based upon the freedom of the individual conscience of the citizen, and that the Republican party may be trusted in Iowa or in any state, to promote any plan qf reform, Australian or other, caTcttTated to extend this liberty and to further protect the purity of the ballot. While inviting to our shores the worthy poor find oppressed of all nations, we earnestly commend laws that protect our country anil 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 taws nuci of such further legislation as may be acces- sary. We favor such legislation as will impose upon all classes of property, corporate 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 we are in hearty sympathy with every effort 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 E ower, its prosperity and its good name, ave been the fruits of its industrial people, and we believe in such policies, state and national, as will promote justice and wider opportunity among these classes. To their support, iu the future as in the past, we pledge our most intelligent judgment ana most sincere 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, also, lor 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. "lu the interests of true temperance," and under the laws of Iowa, enacted by the representatives of its sovereign people, the saloon was made an outlaw in this state, we charge that the outlaw has had the patronage, counsel and protection of the Demoerutie party; that the Democratic party, as it has won power., has nullified the law, defied the authority of the state and the expressed will of the people, and 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 recog- nise that the issue is between "the interests of true temperance" and 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 thetioutrol of the next legislature by the 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 its grasp upon the homes and politics of the state. We cite in proof of this its surrender this year of the local option feature of the plank of 18S9, under which last year pretense of indorsement by tho state was made, and to which pledge was given in petition for legislative authority. We charge that this abandonment of local qptioa is the forerunner of further premeditated betrayal, and that trust in the Democratic party will end in complete breaking down 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 the 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 xeal 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 he did most outrageously misrepresent the honest, industrious, frugal and prosperous people of Iowa in his Reform club banquet speech in the city of New York on the 23d of December last. We denounce as purposely misleading the alleged statistic! with which the governor assumed to sustain the indictment against the state which had dignified his name. We denounce the Otturnwa platform of this year as framed with deli Derate purpose to mislead and deceive, wherein sympathy is expressed whore none is felt; wherein help is proposed where none is rendered: i wherein purposes are avowed which are not entertained. In support of this indictment we point to the pretended friendship for tbe soldiers, and to tho arraignment at tho same time of the Republican party for having appropriated money for the paymentoi pensions; to the "tree silver" plank, intended to deceive tbe supporters of "free and unlimited coinage of silver;" to the plank assuming to "affirm the doctrine at control and regulation of railroads," a policy implanted upon the state under the administration of the last Republican governor, against the opposition, secret and open, of the Democratic party, extending to an alliance with corporate power iu the nrst election of railroad commissioners under the laws iu 1888. We denounce the Democratic party of Iowa for misrepresentations in its platform and before tbe people, of the McKinley bill, charging that it seeks to mislead the people through reiteration of untruths as to the effect of that bilt and in all ways to wori upon tb* prejudices of the uninformed. We arraign the Democratic party for opposition to ballot reform in the «outb, while yet making pretense of ballot reform in lP wa ,< Where tbe undisputed right to cast a free bar lot and to have It honestly coonted goes '*• every precinct of the state unchallenged. We arraign tho Democratic party as tbe enemy of labor, scbemi&g to break down tbe defense of protective laws, to block the wheels of home industry, and to degrade tbe masses of the people-a party controlled by aristocratic «nd reactioaary tendencies, the legacy of ilia very- The Republican party of Iowa appeals itelUgecee and to the integrity of tbe 1 Burt Republican. tt. 33.
