My farm of 20* aercs for sale. Situ- atad in Madison township, Wintieshcik Co., Iowa, three ami a half miles west of Docorah, in sections 11 and 14. Woll improved and timber motigh for farm use. In good state of cultivation Woll watored and good buildings School within six rods of house. Long time will 1)0 givan on part pajniont Inquire on farm for particulars. Address, Wsi. MCINTOSII, (Box. 2S8) Docorah, Iowa, people of town known just what would be done and where it would be. It was given out in tho churches oa Sunday and Sunday evening that the people were requested to meet at the Methodist church and march to the cemetery and decorate tho soldier's graves, but it was not generally understood that there would be any exercises either at the church or at tho cemctory, but it was quite geuerally believed that what exercises there were would be at the cemetery, and heneo fully half of the people went there instead of to the ehuroh. The grounds were quito full of people all the afternoon, until the procession finally came at about 3:30. Thoy wore greatly disappointed when they found that they had missed a vory interesting program of oxercises at the church, consisting of music, a recitation by Mrs. Luhman and an address by Rev. Burton, all of which are said to have boon fine. We wero of the num dor who waited at the eemelery and issed the program. The town never was more prefusely ecoraied with flags than en Monday. The hand got together and furnished good music for the occasion, tho day was warm and fair and taken all in all ould havo been a very creditable allair if our people had understood that there were to bo exorcises at the hurch. It is to be hoped that next ear there will be a better understand ng and a piograin published in advance. as it is evident our peoplo desire a full recognition of the day set part in remembrance of the soldiers hose valor saved the country from ismomharmentand ruin and preserved it as a lastiig heritage for the genera- lions yet to be. Hon. L. S. Collin says: "It may be some comfort to the farmers of uorthwestorn Iowa to know that the heaviest cop of corn I over raised on my farm was planted on the Oth and 0th of June."-Rural Life. In tin's section of the state Ike bulk of the corn was planted last week and June 1st saw few lields not planted. ale of course, and necessitates th right kind of a season to insure a fall crop; but we hare little .doubt but there ill be a fair corn crop in this part o tho state this year. When the weather finally does get warm it is prsity sure lo get vory warm and shovo corn vory rapidly. Wo have had but one corn failure for many yeats and that was occasioned by unprecedented early frost in tho fall. Fairly good weathe for the noxt four months will fill tho eorn cribs, but good weather must come soon and remain permanently. the mean time let us koep a "stiff upper lip." We are far better off than many other sections of the country. —Organs at whulesale prices warrantod, at Wartield'a. J.

That's -where you burn the candle, when you pay more than $10 for a $10 Suit. There isn't any law to prevent you from paying more, hut if you do you do it on a theory that your money isn't worth as much to you as it is to somebody else. You'll have a handsome balance in your pocket to spend for other things if you come to us and pay that price; go elsewhere and you'll be parting with the balance-that burns the candle at the other end. All savings don't necessarily go into a safe. The safest kind of a saving is to buy where you can get the best goods for the least money, and this is the plaoe.
