Could Locate the Drug Stores by the Number of Teams About Them —Other County News. The following letter from a pioneer who kept clear of the drug stores will bo accepted as truthful about the great Ti tonka: BUUT, Feb. 17.—To the Editor: I have been hauling wheat to Titonkii thiH week. Tho first time I have been there since the train first came in. By the way, that was the first time I saw men building a railroad and ballasting with snow. They are paying good prices for produce nnd selling lots of coal, lumber, salt, etc., and selling right. I had no trouble to find the drug store, as I could tell where it was by the number of teams around it. I was told that it was a slander on their road to say that the trains go at a snail's pace. One man assured me when the train was running right that I would have to run a pretty good jog to keep up. Being I am bashful, I didn't go to the Topic office. Yours truly, R. JAIN. iiiiYeriio NOWB. Thursday afternoon Mrs. Tesmer, living in the west part of town, attempted to commit suicide by taking two table spoons full of arsenic. The doctor was summoned and she is now some better. The Dew_el-Patton wedding, owing to the extensive acquaintance of the contracting parties, and the very impressive ceremony and beautiful decorations of the church, is recognized as one of the most interesting occasions of this nature ever held in Lu Verne. All join in extending congratulations to Mr. Dewel, long and favorably known by many in this community, in his selection of Miss Patton, who was born and raised in our midst and for some time was one of the most efficient teachers of our schools. Mr. Dewel is an attorney by profession, as well as the editor and publisher of the Goldfield Chronicle, where after a wedding tour of 10 days in the south, they will settle and commence life's battle together in earnest.

Mr. Jergeson will retain possession this season, after which he will move to Minnesota. Andrew Jergeson will probably also move later. No decision has been reached yet where the mill will be located, but we get it from good authority that it will in all probability bo on the lots near the stock yards. This would bo an excellent location, easy for teams to reach, close by the railroad and near the elevator. A Close Call. The party which accompanied the remains of Mrs. Peter Bowen of Cresco township to Muscatine came near being in a bridge accident. The Muscatine Journal says: The Muscatine party who accompanied the remains of Mrs. Bovvon for interment at Illinois City, Saturday, had a narrow escape from going down with the fallen bridge span. They consisted of E. Brandenburg, liis daughter Eva, E. C. Bowen, and Robt. Rayburn. They were delayed about 15 minutes on their return by Miss Eva becoming so cold that she induced them to stop at a farm house till she could get warm. This delay, it Is believed, prevented them from being on the span when it fell. Tl tonic u Topic. Messrs.

Higley this week shipped two young thoroughbreds, Kossuth colts, up to J. C. Collins, the Benson, Minn., land man, at the price of $150 each; pretty good for yearlings, but they are good horses and a bargain at that. Postmaster Pettibone has accepted a position with the Deering people for the coming season. He will be one of their traveling solicitors and experts, and as machinery has always been his long suit, he will be a valuable man for them.
