Come and see us before placing your order. It will be to your advantage.

Is it not your duty and for your better interests to help build up your own town and city, encourage, and sustain home ENTERPRISE and INDUSTRY, other things being equal? Speaking of flour: ^In this connection permit me to say that a loaf of snowy white bread is nice to look at, so are many things we see that we had bette^keep out of our much-abused stomachs. I am clearly of the opinion, after many years' experience in manufacturing flour, and from close observation, that the great suffering among o<ar people from INDIGESTION CONSTIPATION, and attendant troubles is traceable to bread made from the fine, dry, starchy "Fancy Patent flours, which become stale, chippy, and tasteless ma few hours; contains but little of the gluten, or nutritious part of the wheat. Hence, 1 have, after these many years' experience in milling changed my system, discarded "Fancy Patent," and make only the 'PATENT WHOLE WHEAT " flour, thus giving you all the pure flour ot tne wheat berry. The bread from this flour will be spongy, moist, sweet, and nutritious for days, and like the bread of our grandmothers be «SB soasr. Abstracts. Other abstracters have pooled. We're not in it.

The very smallest member weighed about 230. In the car each occupied a separate seat. There is nothing small about the O'Brien county democrats. _ The town of Lake City has boon agitating the subject of a water supply, but they have concluded that instead of spending money to got water that they will make their first expenditure to get rid of it. Instead of putting in water works this year they will establish a drainage system. Joe Emerson, living six miles south of Spencer near the Little Sioux, is reported to be entirely surrounded by the high water. Ho is in no danger of floating away or starving out, as he is -well provisioned and on high ground. ______ Thos. McCulla, who for five years has edited the Cherokee Times, and done editorial work manifesting much ability and fitness for the profession, has sold his paper to H. S. Knoodlor and F. A. Bagloy. Mr. Kneedlor is the well known writer from Ottumwa, and Mr. Bagley has been foreman of the office. Mr. McCulln bought the paper Hive years ago for less than §2,000, and sold it for §6,000. The new proprietors will make the Times keep pace with the growth of northwest Iowa. By an act of the Twenty-fourth general assembly the bounty on wolves is increased to $5 for adults and $2 for cubs. The law above referred to is changed in another respect. The entire pelt must now be brought to the county auditor when a claim for bounty is filed, and that officer must so mutilate the pelt that it cannot be made to do duty in securing another bounty in an adjoining county. The act will not go into effect until July 4, so that it is hardly available for this year's crop. The health law passed by the last legislature transfers from the health officers to the mayor of incorporated cities and clerks of townships the authority to quarantine any place where contageous diseases may be found. The health officer under the new law remains the sanitary advisor of the board, but he is relieved from duty as the executive officer. Ho can not order or release quarantine, that power being vested in the mayor and clerk and these officers are required to enforce the regulations of the state board of health. The name of Fred H. Taft appears in a list of nine Sioux City men who were admitted to the bar by the supreme court at DesMoines last week. tablishing mutual detective associa^ tions. A majority of the citizens at Lis- cornb were taken in for small amounts and the fellow was arrested at Le Grand, where he -was discovered. He had forged names of several business institutions of Marshalltown to his sub- crlption lists. ^______ William Warner, who lives at O'Loary, in Plymouth county, went to town Thursday. He was on his way to the Koeley institute at LeMafs, and got one last jag before taking the train. Ho made the acquaintance there of a stranger, who accompanied him to Cherokee. Warner told him he know nothing of the town, and the stranger volunteered to guide him to a good hotel, but instead took him down an alley, slugged him and robbed him of $148, all ho had. He was pretty badly brusiod when found. The stranger has not been found. As showing what is wanted and what is not wanted by great daily papers the Carroll Herald says: Billy Hamilton last week sent his photograph and a ?2o draft to the Chicago Tribune, and was surprised when Sunday's paper came out without his beautiful portrait. A letter next day informed tho Odebolt quill driver that when the paper wants tho portrait of a man it is willing to pay for the same, and when it wants his picture it will lot him know. Fair field Ledger: Up in law-abiding Scott county tho gambling privileges of . tho county fair have been sold for $3,925. Gamblers were invited to bid for tho exclusive privilege of " fleecing" the unwary who might visit tho exhibition. A fair association which will act us " capper" for the swindlers is unworthy tho name. A. M. Delano of Fort Dodge had 'a carload of marble which he wanted to send to tho isolated town of Pocahontos Center. He inquired at Rolfe for the facilities for transporting the stone from that place to Pocahontas Center, and found a peculiar state of affairs. The freight could bo taken to Pocahontas, but it would be by boat and would cost just one dollar per hundred pounds. A stone boat service has actually been established and this is the only way of communicating between Rolfe and Pocahontas Center. Not a wheeled vehicle can be seen and the process of transportation is a slow and painful one. At tho Cerro Gordo county institute O. T. Denison figured out tho comparative value of foods, based upon their constituents, as follows: "When milk sells at $1 per 100 pounds it is as cheap a food as round steak at 21 cents per pound, smoked ham at Oi cents, codfish at 1 cent, oysters at li cents a quart; or counting oysters at 40 cents a quart milk is worth 54 cents a quart."

Stevenson had no ticket and refused to pay his fare, stating that he was in charge of the sheriff and that that official must " put up" for him. The sberiff refused to do this and the conductor informed Stevenson that he would have to put him off. The " prisoner" was so highly elated at this prospect that the conductor became fearful that he might get himself into serious complications by aiding in the escape of the " tough citizen;" and the scheme worked so well that Stewart finally concluded that he had derived enongh amusement out of it so that he could pay Steve's fare and relieve the troubled mind of a badly muddled conductor. _______ The Fort Dodge Messenger says that all this talk about macadamized roads in Iowa is nonsense at this stage ceeding. The first and chief thing needed is drainage. Take the water away and the roads will never stay impassable very long. We want a system of big ditches in this county, and if an issue of county bonds is necessary to pay for them let it be made. Unless the rains soon cease the prairie chicken crop will be a light one this year. Their nests, which are usually made in sloughs, will be destroyed, and all that will be left for the nirarods will be old cocks that rise at 100 feet and sail away like rockets. ' The libel case of the State of Iowa vs. W. A. Wells, editor of the Alton Democrat, has been postponed by Justice Stahl until the 24th, owing to the illness of Senator Gatch, attorney for the state's witness, Senator Finn of Bedford. _ A man giving the name of C.
