You know that nearly every dollar you pay for flour and mill stuffs that is shipped in, you pay the freight on, and the profits to the dealer also. Most of this money goes to help build up some other town or city. Now is this right, just, or fair? 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 better 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 our 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 in a few hours; contains but little of the gluten, or nutritious part of the wheat. Hence,! lave, 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 ol the wheat berry. The bread from this flour will be spongy, moist, sweet, and nutritious for days, and like the bread of our grandmothers be white enough for THE QUEEN. I have several thousand sacks ^ this flour on hand made from selected hard wheat. It is excellent, and EVERY SACK WARRANTED. Will you try a sack? If it don't please, it will cost you nothing. Is not this fair? I make for the present the following very low prices for choice articles at my mill, or flour and feed store: 41 Patent Whole Wheat" flour, per sack $!•"> Graham, per sack L Rye, per sack ''' £5 Buckwheat, per sack 'Jt Corn Meal, per sack g* Bran, per 100 * Shorts, per 100 g o Feed, per 100 7 "" Wheaten Gluten," per sack • • •; • • • •"^''' 'j Liberal discount on round lots.

There is trouble on foot at the lakea in Dickinson county on account of the dam at the foot of Lower Gar lake. For years there has been ti contest between certain parties regarding the utility of keeping a dam up at that point. For sorno years no attempt has been made to keep up the dam, but this spring we are informed that nearly if not quite all the parties around the lake favored the idea of again building it up. As a result it was done, A few days ago it was blown up with dynamite. A Lake City youth who advertised for a wife was run out of town by the enraged spinsters who thought that the home supply was ample. Oskaloosa is engaged in the biggest kind of a fight just now. The trouble arises over the arrests by wholesale of the business men for selling cigars in hotels and other places Sunday. The arrests still continue, but the saloon men who have instigated them are alarmed at the magnitude of their undertaking. There is general indignation, and County Attorney Preston refuses to take any part in the cases. He, says the county will pay no fees to the- officers who make the arrests. The business men have organized for a finish fight. Evidences of destruction wrought by the flood may be soon along the Little Sioux in Clay county on the low lands. Quite a number of cattle succumbed to the influences of water and weather. They were turned out to feed upon the low lands, and the flood came down in the night and drowned some of them and chilled others to death. H. J. Me- Grath lost 14 head. THE WEEK'S IOWA NEWS.

All veterans, sons of veterans and members of the W. B. C. are cordially invited. ^^^^^ Hon. L. S. Coffin says in the Fort Dodge Messenger: "It may be some comfort to the farmers of northwestern Iowa to know that the heaviest crop of corn I ever raised on my farm was planted on the 9th and 10th of June." Many thousands of acres of corn have been planted this week and it is yet two weeks before the 10th of June. The writer is neither a prophet nor the son of a prophet, yet he is not afraid that the Iowa corn crop will be a failure or that a Russian famine will be our portion. If there happens to be a few less bushels raised the demand will only be increased, and the greater the demand the greater will be the prices for the Iowa farmer. Don't shed any tears over Iowa, ^^^^^ Hampton rejoices in the possession of aluminum alloy works. They have lately put in about $4,000 worth of machinery. The works now employ about 20 men, and it is expected that the number of hands will be increased shortly. The company have orders now for all the metal they can turn out, and it is the intention to enlarge the capacity just as soon as practicable, W. W, Bain, the young man who has furnished the newspapers with numerous columns of sensational accounts of the abduction of a Buchanan connty school teacher, is under arrest and will be tried on several charges. He contends that Miss McDonald went with him to Des Moines, where they were married, and that she helped plan the elopement. ______ A Crawford county man owns a tract of land that was originally entered by Abraham Lincoln. Sonic Monster Steers. Christian Behrman writes this paper from La Salle, 111., under date of May 20, enclosing a hand bill which describes a couple of steers on exhibition there, the combined weight of which is « 8,040 pounds. In his letter he says: " It may be of interest to some of- your readers to hear something about heavy cattle, (see enclosed bill). This is no humbug, but is true from top to bottom. I had the pleasure of seeing them myself. We had to go up on .a ladder to see along their hacks. They were raised in the state of Missouri, and are nearly seven years of age. The owners are going to feed them so they will weigh 10,000 pounds, and have them at the Chicago exhibition. They will exhibit them in Iowa this fall. I wonder if Mr. Lund and other big cattle raisers can get any of their cattle up to 4,000 pounds." ^_ Our North End Railroad.:' Elmore Eye: A new deal has come to the surface on the railroad through northern Kossuth. The surveyors are now working on a new line, one that will cross the Northwestern at a cut, so as to bridge over it and do away with, a grade crossing. This means that there will be no town at the crossing, and we have it from one in a position to know that a station will be 'put in on the company's land near Swea post' office and boomed for all it is worth, The entire stock must be in a short time.
