C, and at that timo he prepared a class of young men, among whom was Wade Hampton, to attend tho Uuivorsity at that place. He was runrrlod in April. 1849, to Hannah Lar- rabeo. In 1851 ho was elected the first county Judgo of Clayton county. In October. 1858 ho was elected district judgo, and was reelected in 1802. Iu 1870 ho was appointed supremo judge to fill vacancy, which high position ho soon resigned, and for a fow years gnvo considerable attention lo railroading. In 1852 he commenced to make tho large farm hi Grand Meadow whore ho resided after 1857 until his death, which occurred Aug. 20th, 1891. Judge Williams had a very strongly marked character «wd during his forty yoars residence in Clayton county hu Impressed his personality on more people in northoaslci-n Iowa thnn perhaps any othor man who ever liycd In this judicial district. Nature, no loss than education, made him a gentleman, and yet thcro was no more kindly and approachable man anywhere than he, by the poor as well as the rich. He was always tho staunch friend of the poor laboring man, hundreds of whom, in many ways, ho assisted in the struggle of life. Ho wns tho soul of honor and his word wns always as good as his bond. Hi3 wido practice at tho bar in tho early days, when tho prominent attorneys made the circuit of the district, together with his eight years service at tho bench, and later his railroading labors, brought tim in contact with a great many people and his acquaintance was not even limited to tho state. Like most men of largo minds and cultivated intellects ho was not as successful financially as some men who wore far below htm iu nil that goes ti: make up manhood and true nobility of character. His religious views woro on the brond guago of liberality, his belief being far morn in works than in faith. | A really groat and good man has fallen by the wayside and ho will go out and In among us no moro forcvor. The writer of these imperfect and disconnected lines to his memory knew and respected him for his sterling worth for moro than thirty years. It is with moro than common sadness thai wo bid this largo huartod friend of tho human raco a last farcwoll. If it shall prove that there Is, beyond tho verge of this imperfect world a fairer clitno of which ho had no vision hero, whero justice is tempered with morcy, there must bo a placo assigned for such as ho, whore his broad Intellect may have a wider sweep, and where, whilo tho waves of eternity shall beat against tho shores of time and the worlds that shall come and go in tho vast abyss of space, it may go on broadcnitig and lengthen ing (iiiti) the mtivorso shall be unfolded to it as a scroll.

Tho Citizens State Bank will bo ready to open its doors to . the public next Monday if the safo arrives, and it is expected by every train. Thoro hns boon a groat delay In getting the build ing ready but it Is a good job through out and reflects great ere'dty on tho contractor, Mr. Hftyilngj^We.bollevo that thoro Is not ti neater or morn con vou feat bank building In this part of tho state.

The new bank does not start out with groat expectations but bellovos there is Hold here to build up a business which in the future will be profitable. Thore is no town of tho size of Postville, with suoh a country tributary to It as wo havo, that has not two bauks. We have given a good deal of attention to this matter beosuso it Is a now outor- priso whloh all the people of our town and surrounding oouutry should bo and aro interested iu. Wo havo nothing In the world against tho old Postville Bank. It has been a stand by for years and In Us reorganization 1« far stronger than wrar before, It lias its business established and needs no Introduction to the public.

Work lias been commenced on trio improvement of the city park, In front of the court houso, and in timo it will be one of the pluasautest nnd most attractive spots in Waukon.

Wo met Mr. Hart;' tho now olork of tho courts, and-found him to be n porfoot gentleman, like all tho rest. There is one thli.g notioeablo in this county; no matter What the political comploxion of the officers is, they are always pleasant and agroeablo men lo do business with. Tho faot has been proverbial oyer since wo knew anything about the county. Tho farmers nro further ndvanoed with their work over that way than in this vioinity.
