Mr. Levi Hodgson sent us the follow- ing.report on the state of his health last *week but it was received too late to be published. The REPUBLICAN hopes that his present good health and state of .Mskiness will be continued indefinitely: BURT, IOWA, February 28. Bditor REPUBLICAN? : The Burt REPUBLICAN of last week stated that Levi Hodgson had bis boots on again and intended running the farm again this year. Now I would just say the REPUBLICAN is all right on that as I have already gotten things pretty much under my 'Own thumb, only that Charley Anchor is still around the barn yard to execute some of my telephone orders and see that-the pigs and cattle-and such things as stay about the barn get a little something to eat and drink. You see I am something of a telephone farmer just now, same as Hiram C. Wheeler was—he did not get there—and I don't know as I will; but the /department of the farm most accessible to me at present is the kitchen and pantry department, I seem to be making a complete success in that line. The farming season has not fully came yet, so I am just laying on my oars waiting on time, just ready to swap yarns and tell stories to any who may chance to pass this way- LEVI HODGSON.

It requires a constitutional remedy like Hood's Sarsaparilla, which, working through the blood, eradicates the Impurity which causes and promotes the disease, and Catarrh effects a permanent cure. Thousands of people testily to the success of Hood's Sarsaparilla as a remedy for catarrh when other preparations had failed. Hood's Sarsaparilla also builds up the whole system, and makes you feel renewed in health and strength. Catarrh "I used Hood's Sarsaparilla for catarrh, and received great relief and benefit from It. The catarrh was.very disagreeable, especially iu the winter, causing constant discharge from my nose, ringing noises in my cars, and pains in the back of my head. The effect to clear Catarrh my head in the morning by hawking and spitting was painful. Hood's Sarsaparilla gave me relief immediately, while iu time I was entirely cured. I am never without Hood's Sarsaparilla iu my house as 1 think it is worth its weight In gold." MRS. G. B. GIBB, 1029 Eighth Street, N. W., "Washington, D. C.

Ledyard is situated in northern Iowa in north part of Kossuth county, upon an undulating table land. It is about two miles from the Blue Earth river on the north and east. It is diversified with both upland and lowland, but it is safe to say that the land in the vicinity of Ledyard is comparatively free from marsh ponds. The soil is black loam with land enough to make it warm. It is well adapted to cereals, especially corn.
