THE UPPER DES MOINB8: ALGONA, IOWA, WEDNESDAY, MARCH 15,1899, liAS TROUBLE OF HER OWN Looks as If Titoiika Might Have Two Postofflccs. Difficulty Arises toy Benson of the Net* ToWn Not Being oft the Government Map. Titonka bids fait to enjoy the distinction of possessing two postofflcos and two postmasters. From private advices it is learned that this peceliar state of affairs is likely to occur as a result of permission having been granted to remove the Buffalo Fork office 1J^ miles northwest, which \vould bring it squarely into Kossuth's new, booming town of Titonka, whc're a splendidly equipped postofflce is already established and doing a thriving business, and where the lady postmistress and editress, Miss Graham, is acting as agent for Uncle Sam in a manner which is said to give universal satisfaction, As nearly as we are able to learn, itseetns that this permission for removal was granted by the department without a full knowledge of the facts. Titonka seems not to be on the map, so fnr as the government records show, and the removal of the Buffalo Fork postofflco 3J^ miles northwest would have no particular significance unless it were known that this removal would take it to Titonka, which it does, as a matter of fact. It is understood the inn Her has been laid before the proper authorities at Washington for settlement, and no doubt it will bo adjusted in u manner satisfactory to all parties concerned, and that one postmaster or postmistress will continue to holrl a monopoly on the postoflluc business at the new town. While Titonka luis made n phenomenal growth and is doing " all kinds of bus iness," it is not thought that moru than one postofflco is as yet necessary to accommodate the rush. JjiiVunio NOWH.
