That has been known fol' a long time, however. It is also tfu&that he is one of our most sensible men, a fact to which his life lias borne frequent witness. Just recently he has demonstrated the possession of most excellent judgment by going about the distribution of houses and lands among his^children, a task which so many men leaW'to long drawn contests in the coufts or the doubtful efficiency and faithfulness of executors and administrators. < ^Vithin the past month Mr. ICain has given away a whole section of liis land to four of bjsjieirs. To ,his oldest son, John, he ;$rfii'-given the homestead in Plum Creek township, on which he-had lived since 1864. This quarter section is estimated to be worth $i,000. Robert, Thomas and James have each been given deeds to quarter sections, and there is plenty left for the other children. Mr. Kain has but recently moved into Algoua, where he had previously bought a very comfort- abli but modest place. He is a man who came to the United States from thejEmerald Isle at twenty years of age. He was a common laborer in the east for some years, his last work in that line being put in for the government in Philadelphia from 1862 to 1864, at $40~per month. When he came to Kossuth in 1864 he had a wife, whom he had* 1 married in 1861, and very little else.

The house itself, which was 14x22, was built of native lumber, sawed in Algona from logs of his own cutting, but Mr. Kain made the. trip to Cedar Falls with his ox team for the shingles and sash. In the thirty years of his life in Kossuth Mr. Kain has raised a large family, most of whom he has sent away to school, and thus , provided with the means of education which he himself did not enjoy, he never having had the opportunity even of learning to read, and has been accumulating substance all the while. 'He is said to be worth as much as $100,000. His case has innumerable parallels among the pioneers of northwest Iowa. -For something nice in tiie line oi PRESENTS =Is Now = While our lines are complete in— DINNER SETS, '4i W-" •it "^ •« ) '' \ ' Haviland Semi-Porcelain AND Granite Ware. < SETS. .LANGDON •V .
