The school board, from some cause or other, has failed to advertise for sale the bonds on which they expect to raise the money to build the new school house. This oversight may cause some delay.

Joseph Mai-Ida, southeast of that place' raisdd'the crop. .Clel Gtlchrist, son of Prof. Gilchrist, is serving his second term as superintendent ofPocahontas county, and the'Record pays him a high compliment on the strength of his success in the position. In speaking of the short term rule the Record Very sensibly says: In this county but little attention has been paid to the short term plan in vogue in some other counties but on tho contrary where a capable official has been serving one or two terms and has managed the affairs of the office'in a creditable manner we have been slow to make a change. And there are good grounds for taking this view of the matter. When a farmer or merchant secures a good man they try to keep himi as long as possible and there is no good' reason why a county should not look at the matter in tho same light. John Anderson, of Burt, and Miss Clara» Gilbertson, of Emmetsburp, were married at the latter place last week. Swea City Herald: R. M.

Within thirty minuter Primmcr's tott- ifue and throat were swollen so largB that irftcheotomy was necessary to allow res- piratioh, but death "finally, qhs'ued. . Al Adams Oii Bloomers. It interesting to know what Al Adams of Humboldt thinks of bloomers.— Ibwa State Capital. Well, if you think it would, you can toll yoiir folks that bloomers are ; just the thing. You,can't make tho undersigned mad any quicker than to make aslighting remark about bloomers in his presence and hearing. He.thinks that bloomers will iind their level all right enough although they be a little on the bias jiist now. We. are for bloomers' or kinckers -. or anything else a Woman wants.
