To-day (Aug. 1G) six or seven teams loaded with sheet iron stoves arrived at Postville. I'hcse peddlers propose to sell these, stoves to the farmers for tho enormous price of $6X00. We have personally examined these stoves, and twenty years experience in handling stoves and working sheet metal warrants us in saying lo the best of our knowledge they will not withstand one year's hard service. The history of theso stoves boa's us out in this statement; for on the streets of Spencer, Iowa, one of these sluyes may be seen stundir.g in front of a hardware store placarded thusly: "This is a Home Comfort Range, has been in use nine months am! is completely burned out." We heard a traveling man, who travels through southern Iowa, state that every scrap iron pile in the southern part of the state contains from one to a dozen of these stoves. We have a curiosity lo know how many farmers in this neighborhood are going to exchange their dollars for experience, and we predict that many a farmer who to-day boasts of his ability to avoid schemes and confidence men will have occasion before a year has pussed to mourn over his experience. Some who feel they are possessed of strong will power and keen judgment will bo tempted to examine these stoves, and may lie to vindicate their judgment they will buy one. To these we would say, examine the stove where the inside parts are rivetod to the outside: notice those little depressions around tho rivets—this indicates light material. Examine a steam boiler which is made of wrought iron, you will not find them there. If we made a sheet iron stove in our tinshop of common light iron it would present the same appearance. Wrought iron nor Steel will not stand lire without warping, and it is doing no violence to truth to stUiClhula stove ma lo entirely of wrought iron or steel is absolutely worthless. The water rasurvoir of these stoves is heated by running it through a hollrw lire-back. Six months uso with hard water will eompletoly till up this hollow fire-back with lime and render tho reservoir useless. Steel Ranges hare,been a failure when made entirely of steel, so much so that all reputable firms have g>ven up their manufacture. And tho steel stoyo of to-day contains more cast and malleable iron than it does steel, the si eel being used in thoss parts further from the liro. Any objections that can be urgod against steel for uso in stoves, holds equally good against wrought iron. We hnvo aarefully watched the wrought iron and stoel stove ever since it tirst came out and never had confidence onongh in them to recommend them, but to meet this special competition we have bought some of the latest improved, the same size as theso peddlers are selling, which wo will sell at $30.00. This is $38.00 below the peddlers', and a stoyo that will last live times longer than theirs. So, if you must be humbugged lot it be dono by homo talent ami yon can have at least tho satisfaction of cussing us every timo you como to town. HOY & Mc>:EIL. Possibly never before were the sympathies of Custalia and neighboring communities so deeply and so generally stirred as by the untimely death, by drowning, at Clermont, ou the ltlh, of liurton Shroyer ami Florence Morrison. These promising young people were universally respected and commended. Their funeral was held together from the U. li. church, ulCastalia, and side by side they were laid to rest in the cemetery near by, on the afternoon of Saturday, the Kith. The largo offering of beautiful flowers served to remind us of the words of James Russet Iluily: '•J'Uo. v. rr .uh'-s CJ!
