Ledyard Leader: Northern Kossuth offers rare advantages to the man of moderate wealth. Perhaps in no county in the old Hawkeye state can the opening be found where industry is so sure of .sueh a toward as can be found here at the present time. But this will not always be so. A new country is the place for an energ- etic'man to make a place for himself, irrespective of his occupation, Land is cheaper than it ever will be again, business openings a'waty the coming of the new man, and the future is full of rich promises. There is oppression In an overcrowded community. And, too, while the air isn't particularly laden with the perfume of flowers, It Is an elixir to the breath and hue to the palid cheek. The to-morrow of northern Kossuth glitters with pearls based upon present realizations. It is the place for men with young hope In their hearts and the halo of energy all about them, but unfit for drones, We still want your trade at the Opera House Grocery.
