We have heretofore mentioned the retirement of Levi Armstrong from the clothing firm of Armstrong & Holler, but we feel that the subject ia worthy of more than a paating notice, as Mr. Armstrong, in the nine years that he has been in business here has done much for Poetville, as well aa for his worthy aucceaaor, Mr. Hollar. Selecting a business partner ia much the aarue as selecting a wife. To succeed all must bo harmony. This has been tho case with the always popular film of Armstrong dc Holier, nod now that tho senior member of the firm has retired a fow words of praiae, by way of hiatory, are in order. Some nine yeara aince, while delayed here by a snow bleckade. he found there was a bankrupt stock of clothing for sale aheap and at ence bought it, afterwards taking in Mr. Carl Hotter as a partner, and the Arm have enjoyed a good trade from the start. Mr. Armstrong being the senior member of the firm of Armstrong A Alexander, at Waukon, and having plenty of capital lota of eiorgy and puah, a splendid jndjje of clothing and a gentleman of good taste, a good buyer, ploasant, agreeable and popular, making friends rendily, the firm each year increased their trade. He believes in printer's ink and has always written up "taking" advertisements which his firms have lived op IJ strictly. Wherever he mav locale the newspapers will hear from him in a satisfactory manner. Having sold his businoas at Waukon also he will leave the county and wo are not advised as to where he will locale. While we regret his departure from the county our best wishes go with him, and we know that whnt is our loss will be the gain of the town in which he decides to locate. Honesty and uprightness of character will characterize his actions and he will be found lo bo not only a rustler for busi- noss but a loading spirit in all the enterprises worthy of promotion in the town in wlueh he resides. Such men are not so plenty nnywhero but the departure of one leaves a vacancy hard to be tilled, evon in this ago of energy and push. -DIED At Garden City, Minn., Jan. 39rd, 1892, little K.ittio, youngest of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Glines, Closing Out Sale About 250 Garments on hand of all grades and kinds oonsisting of FLUSH CLOAKS, FLUSH JACKETS.

A darling one from us brts gone, His voice we'll hear no more; He has left us for that home abovo With the loved ones gone before.
