PERKT, P. M. j ESTABLISHED 1883. FOSTVILLE CLOTHING HOUSE, OARL BOLTER, Prop. —The weather and crop report for last week was not very eneomaglng. The WQSlarn section of the state was very unfortunate, the precipitation in some sections exceeding four inches. In all that section of the state scarcely any field work was possible. More snow fell last Friday morning in that area than here. - The McGregor News gives an account of the case of Egbctt vs Egbert, of Monona, recently decided by the supreme court: "In the Egbert case the widow, at tlie death of her husband, was unable on account of illness to be removed from the homestead, a house in Monona, and died a few months after the death of tho husband, in the occupancy of the homestead. It was claimed that such oecupaney and death, the widow's shaio in valuable land nut having been set apart to her during hi-r life time, was an election to take the homestead and that the widow's heirs were shut off from claiming or inheriting her dower interest or'di'tribulive share and that it would descend to tho heirs of the husband and not to the hoirs of the widow. The case was fought with great zeal on both sides. Judge Hoyt denied the claim made by the husband's hoirs and the supreme court has just affirmed his decision."' —Tho following are the officers of the district press association for the ensuing year: President, A. K. Bailey, Decorah Republican. Vice-President, T. C. Medary. Waukon Democrat. Secretary and treasurer, T. J. Wilcox, Nortkwood Anchor. — Is not our friend Bobbins off on bis rainfall for • 1888? By his figures given elsewhere he makes the rainfall ol that spring far heavier than it has been this spring, which certainly cannot be correct unless Waukon was far more favored than Postville. We have iiad no comparison to the raiufall of this season for eight or ten years. —For a. tiue fit and style in Ladies' and Misses' Fine Shoes, call on SKXLTON & TAXUEMAX. —Two 3 lb. cans of Pie Peaches fur | 15c, at Warfield's.

It is bilb good and cheap. —Postmaster Perry informs es that ha has hoard from the now postofflce boxes and that they are expected auy day now. He will probably occupy bis now quarters next. week. — We eall attention of Tom Medary to the petition he had offered up to Jerry Rusk at the Mason City meeting, to have the rain slopped. Bro. Sloane must have been an effective'petilionsr at the last shower that lias fallen since the meeting was on the night of the presentation of the resolution. Ask Tom about it. —Why is It that our hoodlum buys will not allow a thermometer to be hung on the KIVIKAV office corner without breaking it? Two havo been broken this spring. The thermometer is pnt there for the benefit of the public more than for our own, and it would seem that it oiigkt to be let alone, bnt it is not. The perpetrators certainly can tako no pride in such work. -A talK with W. H. Carilhors on Monday brought out the fact that he was not discouraged at the crop outlook. Ha says small grain and grass aro very promising, and there is still ample time for corn. Most of this crop will be in this week—in fact the bulk of it was iu by the middle of the week. While wc havo all been inclined to find fault, as compared to other parts of the state wc have really bcon favored. Wo have had no high water and wo believe not a single county bridge lias boon carried awav. While we liaya had damage by washing of hillsides, damage to fences, etc., wc have suffered no great looses as compared vrith other sections, and wo ought to bo thankful thai it is no norm with us than it is. — The concert by the tslentcd Smaln Sisters, of Independence, at the M. E. church, Monday evening, was one of tho roost recherche entertainments ever given in the city. Tho program irns far superior to any that has been placed before an Osage audience for many years, and consisted of instrumental trios, vocal solos, trios, violin duets, <;tc. The sisters were greeted by a full house, and their charming selections were listened to willi warm approval. They aro proficient in their several parts, accomplished, and the grade of their concerts wis such as to commend them and wiu tlis commendation of all who were so fortunate as to bear them. Wc aro warrantod in saving if these young ladies ever como this way again they will be greeted hy one of the largest and most intellectual audiences that ever greeted a band of sisters.-Osage, Mitchell county, Recorder. —Decoration day will pas* by witli no public recognition. On account of the protracted -bad weather tho people do not fed as patriotic as they otherwise would. The farmers and all laboring men have had to utilize every moment of time, even when it rained moderately, to get in their ci\>p* and do other necessary work. The grares of the soldier dead will be decorated though ns usual, by their comrades. PRICES LOWER THAN EVER.

Waterloo is- the home of Gov. Boies and we were told ihcie was not an open saloon In the city, and we saw no indications of any. And yet the mayor of the city in speaking of the fact in hia address of welcome, said "seek and ye shall find, knock and it shall be opened onto you," wbioh seemed to indicate that there might be something there besides Cedar river water. Rockford, up on tho Shell Reek, is an intensely "dry" town and Mason City is not overflowing with anything but rain water, thoagh we wore told tbat np to fyle nobody bad suffered for want of something to. mix with tb« water.
