Notice Is hereby given that the board of supervisors of Kossuth county will receive sealed proposals at the office of the county auditor till the tlrst Monday in April, A. D. 1803, for all grading to he done by said county during the year 1893. All bids to be made In the following manner: All earth moved within 200 feet, at a given price per cubic yard; all earth moved over 200 feet, at a given price per cubic yard for each additional 100 feet. All earth to be measured in the pit or excavation, and all earth to be taken from pits designated by the engineer in charge. The board reserves the right to reject any and all bids. Witness my hand this 4th day of March, 18011. C. M. DOXSEE. COM County Auditor. BURT, Iowa, March 12.—To the Editor: As you have invited the people to give their views on the the road question and paying the tax in cash instead of work, I will give mine. Mr. Chubb says that no town will fix a. slough that costs $50 without calling on the county to do it, which I moat emphatically deny, and if he knows anything about Burt township I can point him to not less than 20 such sloughs in Burt that have cost more than $50 or $150 cither, that have boeh put in in the last ton years, and have not cost 10 cents a yard either, if the poor, ignorant farmers did do it. And I say it is a slur and. a Blander on farmers to aay they do not know how to do work. If so why is it that every man that bosses a county job is anxious to hire farmers' boys and teams to work for him, I will admit that a town supervisor does not always have money enough to complete a job us it should be. Mr. Chubb lays great stress on the five-mill tax that the town levies for road, purposes. Ho would carry the Idea that the whole five-mill tax goes for grading. Now' let us see about that. All of the expenses for tools, road supervisor, wages, ditching, bridge plank, etc., come out of the five-mill tax, and, as for Burt township, it takes over one-half of the tax in cash for plank and tools. Now, to pay it all in cash, then to let it out, employ a competent engineer at $4 a day, and a committee from the county seat at another $4 a day, there would be but little left to do anything with. Now, in your last issue, you published Sec. 200 of the act of the twentieth general assembly. Please publish Chapter 186 of the same in regard to ditching. That is of one- hundred times more consequence than paying the tax in cash. Some four or five years ago the county put in a grade on the north line of Section 27, 97-29 at, a cost of about $600. Now, to my certain knowledge, there has been two months in every year since (March and April) that it has been impossible to get a horse across, let alone drawing a wagon. And why? Just because the water stands clear to the top of the grade; and grade was three feet high. And it will be so till Gabriel blows his horn, unless drained. I have paid out in the last four years some over $200 in ditching farms. I should have paid more, but the trustees said halt, that we had drained farms enough. I say so too, and I do hope the board will not not do another job of grading, unless the adjoining farms will ditch an outlet. And now a few words about laying roads: I would ask is it right to take private property for public use without compensation? Is it law? Is it constitutional, United States or state of Iowa? Now we petitioned for six miles of road in this township, and on that line of road we have built three school houses, and there are 14 families that cannot get to those bouses without going through fields and crawling through barb wire fences, and the He was advertised to play here, you know, Monday, the 30th, but he didn't materialize. The cold English of it is that he jumped his engagement—" cancelled" is the technical term they use* This Makes Me Think Did you ever know W. F. Carter to advertise anything he didn't have ?—to say one thing and mean another ? No, you surely never did—and never will, It's wrong to bet, but if you must bet this would be a sure thing to bet on.

OUB WESLEY MAN ON DEOK, He Comes Up Smiling as Usual—A Good Grist of News Notes — Items from Union. WESLEY, March 20.—Therehave been 17 car loads of emigrant movables unloaded here this month. P. M. Butts has returned to Chicago. P. M. is a jolly fellow and we would like very much to have him with us again. Mrs. A. J. Wright has moved into the house formerly occupied by Irvin Waite. In the meantime Mr. Waite has moved back on his farm. Our school teachers are talking of getting up an exhibition to take plaice about the close of this term. There will be an admittance fee taken which will be used to procure some new books for the library. John Pord has sold his interest here in the Wesley Reporter to Z. S. Barrett. Mr. Pord closed up his • business last Tuesday, It is reported that John was rather joyful the day he left and that he slipped and fell and broke a bottle of printer's ink he had in his pocket just before he took the train. A true patriot, be it here understood, leaves his country for his country's good. Dr. McCormack has sold his property here to G. B. Hall; $800 was the price paid. The doctor will locate at Buffalo Center. Saturday was a very busy day for our merchants. C. E. Oleson returned home from Chicago Saturday evening, where he has been on business for the past two weeks. Last Friday wns St. Patrick's day in the morning, and by the appearance of some of our citizens in the evening they were trying to drown the shamrock. Our school election was quite a spirited one, the largest vote that was ever cast at any school election since the district was organized being put. There were but two candidates running, notwithstanding all reports to the contrary, H. MoCutchen and Nels Johnson. Thure were 97 votes cast of which McCutchen received 49 and Johnson 48. MoCutohen's majority was only one, but that was enough, und enough is as good as a fea_st. Take it all around it was a "Gloriana" a joy forever. Mrs. Amesbury of Whitteraore has moved here and is living in the rooms over the millinery store. It will bo very pleasant for her son, Fred, to board at home. H. MoOutohen is putting up a build- ing at the rear end of his store used for a flour and feed room. The petition tin it was circulated among our people i»bout a month ago asking the railroad commissioners to have a night man at this station has brought forth fruit. Mr. Gallagher received a letter from one of the commissioners last week informing him that the railroad company had promised to send a man at once. In a few days J. H. Pinney of Lyle, Minn., arrived and has taken charge of the office as night man. Wesley did not get any mail Sunday morning. The mail agent must have been busy and forgot to throw it off. The Wesley Reporter says that Fred. Anderson reports for the Algona UPPER DES MOINES. It should have said in that connection: .that that is where the Reporter has been getting, the most of its news. Easter service* will be held at the M. E. church Easter- Sunday. A good pro- gramme will be rendered. Geo. B. HalU W. P. Giddings, and Dr. McCormack were in Algona Monday on business, also Mr. Ash, Mrs. Tennant, and Mrs. Geo. Prink. W. J. Leavett of Mason City, general agent for the Domestic Sewing Machine company, was here Monday. P. A. Corey is the local agent here. J. R. Jones, Algona's big machine man, was doing business here Monday. Our agricultural dealers are getting their stock of machinery on hand for the spring trade. We notice that Al.
