ESTABLISHED 1883. POSTYILLE CLOTHING HOUSE, j OARL HOLTER, Prop. PRICES LOWER THAN EVER. — Rev. Lock wood delivered a dis course last Sunday evening on tho devil, taking the ground of the person ality ot his Satanic nvajesly, and giving scriptural proofs of the correctness of his position. Whether there is a par sonal devil or not mnxes but little difference to mortals so long as a "sjsiri of evil" is iu the world. The porplex ing quss'.ion is how he or it as tho case may be, came into the world. The bible says that God created everything and "without him was not anything made which was made," or words to that effect. And still it is maintained (and it looks' consistent) that God is not the author of evil. If not the author of it he certainly suffered it to come into the world when he hud the power to keep it out, which in tliatcnso seems equivalent to creating it. The fact is we know but very little about the author of either good or evil, and novor shall until "the mists are cleared away." We do kuow that tho cen- touding principles of good and evil are in the world, ant there is by far too great a preponderance of the latter. If we may succeed ia displacing a little of the evil and substituting in its stand a corresponding amount of good it in about all wc c&u expect in this life. An old Quaker once said that he would do what ho could -while he" -was in the world for he would never, pass this way again. He died long ago, and up to thin date he has not returned. We are selling four different styles of FINE CASSIMERE AND WORSTED SACK SUITS^NEW- SFRING- STYLES—worth all the way from $13.50 to $15.00 for $10.00. This is an offer which resembles the old Quaker-It won't pass this way aga in. It will hold;good just lonff enough for you to take advantage of it. If you do it you will be in pocket from $3.50 to $5.00; if you don't, you will lose just about that amount of money. Is a word to the wise sufficient? —Tho Masonic fraternity of McGre gor is making axtensive preparations to elebratc St. John'n day, Juno 14th. All liuighborinjj lodges are being invited They propose to have a grand parade foliowod by public exercises iu Knell Park. Rev. Win.

Tho farailr live ou the second floor and had very narrow escape the roof ovor their heads being badly wrecked, the plastering and paper all torn off, the windows broken, etc. None of the family were seriously injured except by ths scare. Fire caught in tke office below but it was quickly extinguished. Altogether it was an oxciling time. Memorial Say. Wc are rcquosled to call a meeting of all interested in memorial day exercises at Wm. Shepherd's law office, on Saturday evening of this week, May 14tk. a*. 7:30, to make arrangements for the due and proper observance of the day. As in all probability Postville ill not celebrate the coming 4th of July it would seem appropriate to this year have a good public decoration program. Turn out and pass your opinion on it on Saturday evubing. —Miss Lois Tuttle, of Postville, Iowa, completed a course in shorthand and typewriting at Valder's Business Col- logo and Normal School in three months. She writes over one hundred words per minute of new matter. Considering the short tiine-onlr three months—it is safe to say that lier rec ord has rarely, if ever, been equalled by any student ia this country.

The LansingUes propose to entertain the teachers alccly, afford them a dlvers'ty of amusements, including a steamboat excursion, which would be a rare treat to many of them.
