Cups and Saucers, Chocolate and Tea-pots, Salad and Fruit Bowls, Etc., etc, All perfect in every respect. These are really the choice ware and designs of last year, and we, owing to the hard times, made the mistake of buying more of fine goods than was needed—result: we sold off the cheaper goods, but kept these. No dealer anywhere would sell the same quality of ware at our present prices. As we only want to close them out, they are marked for Less Than They Cost in New York City. An inspection is invited.

In other words we believe he has a bright future as a statesman and a politican. And better than all this, he has won his way to the front in an honorable manner, which can hardly be said of many politicians. Bancroft tnd Kossuth county stand ready to back Mr. Mayne In anything he may undertake or aspire to. J. B. Johnson spent a few days of last week in Moline, 111., on a business'trip.

Creamery stock Is very profitable this, season, more so than for two years, at least. Last week the tttePttfJittiAs's correspondence reported $1.00 per hundred pounds of milk paid by the Bancroft creamery, and now Secretary Angus an» nounces the same average result at Burt. His summary is as follows for Novembers "Amount of milk received, 878,347 pounds, amount of butter made, 13,313 pounds} av» erage price per cwt. of milk, 111 lowest price paid,'74 cents, highest, $1.24, which was paid to Mr. Krahn, G. L. Carroll gets the largest check—$85.34, and the smallest is 60 cents. Amount of milk per pound Of butter, 21 pounds. For the first time in two years wo pay $1.00 per cwt. for milk, and I think that for December It will be 20 per cent, higher." Mr. Angus makes this very sensible suggestion: "In view of the fact that all kinds of feed Is lower than it has been for years, it surely will pay now to feed well. Save railway freights, elevator charges, etc., by marketing your surplus grain at homo. A barrel of oats ground and fed to our common cows will make three pounds of butter, worth now about 80 cents, and we grind . now at all times for 5 cents per sack. There is one thing, though. The patrons must be more careful to keep the milk sweet and clean, and It must not be over two days old, and one would be bettor, as it becomes rancid and will not make ,Rood flavored butter if allowed to befeome old." The good results of a timely agitation of evils by the local press has been exemplified in the securing of a new elevator at Wesley. The Reporter spoke right but in meeting last week, showing how that. town was suffering in Its trade by the policy of Its elevator firms In refusing to pay grain prices such as neighbor towns were paying. The result was the organization of a company for the immediate erection pf an elevator. The'parties.who will pUt money into the scheme, according to the Reporter, are Kunz Bros., Frank Hnnie andZ. S. Barrett. The new structure will have a capacity for 15000 bushels and' will be ready to take grain about the first of February./ This will be a great thing for Wesley. . , A : Mondays .special from Iowa Falls says that Albert Noble, a young man wanted at LuVerne, Iowa, for forgery, Wes arrested there Monday morning, and. held awaiting.the arrival of officers- ,frdm Kossuth county.
