Burling was over at Fayette Monday evening to attend a meeting of the trustees of Upper Iowa University, at which the resignation of Dr. A. E. Bennett as president of that institution was presented and accepted. Dicky Hughes of Frankville'was brought over to Poslville^Jas't Friday to have his injuries attended to by the Drs.

Roberts drove to Ridgeway Sunday after Miss Annette Rislov, who had been spending the week-end with her parents. They returned via Cresco, Protovin and Spillville, which they declared was a very fascinating trip. Mr. and Mrs. J. M. Thoma, Mrs. H. A.

On Friday morning last Walter Warneke of West Union was. brought to Postville Community hospital in a very serious condition from infection of the face, with which he had been suffering for some days, and despite all that medical skill could do for him he passed away on Saturday morning. M. E. Smith of Luana was a Postville business visitor Tuesday afternoon. He drove up the Hardin-Postville road and says he is of the opinion that highway is deserving of more attention in the way of improvement than it has yet received. And he will find few who will disagree with him in that. The Home Economics girls entertained the- Future Farmers of America at a jolly party held on Wednesday evening at Postville high school. Besides having a jolly good time in a social way the girls capped the climax by serving some delicious refreshments which the boys pronounced superb. Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Senholz, Mrs. W. C. Thoma and Mrs. Chris Salzgeber motored up to Ridgeway Sunday to visit Henry Garms, who is a very sick man, having suffered a paralytic stroke the middle of last week and is in a most critical condition, a fact that the many Postville friends of Mr. Garms will be sorry to learn.

Mr. and Mrs. Elmer Meyer and family, Mr. and Mrs. David Meyer motored over the other side of Waukon last Sunday afternoon and visited the Allamakee County Home, where the preliminary work of the new buildings has already been started. Contractor Louis W. Thoma and his men are busy this^weefe digging out a basement at the Mrs. Chas.

Mr. and Mrs. Gaddes Brooks, Mr. and Mrs. Lawrence Hofer, of this city, and Mr. and Mrs. Wilson Lange of Decorah were entertained last Sunday at the Chris Wintrick home on route two, Postville, at a chicken dinner in honor of Mr. Wintrick's birth day anniversary. On Saturday last Will Leui bought twenty-four head of feeder cattle to place on his farm south of Postville, He bought nineteen of them from C F. Meier of this city and five head from a Mr. Scheidemantel of Ossian. Will says when he gets six more head of cattle he will be all set for this year. That good seed corn is quite a scarce article and farmers will travel considerable distances to get seed they know is A No. 1, was evidenced here last Saturday when Harold Schilling of Oglesby, Illinois, and Arch Bain- burg of Lancaster, Wisconsin, made long drives to Postville to get seed corn from Hall Roberts' Son. Each of the two genltemen came here by truck and each took back with him one hundred bushels of seed corn. Elmer Meyer of this city is one of those queer ginks who has ideas all his own as to when it's spring, and he bases it all on when the purple martins arrive. He called at the office on Tuesday morning to tell us that old lady spring has been here since April 10th, as it was on that date the purple martins showed up at his place in west Postville this year. And strange as it may seem these birds arrived here only two days later than they did last year. DOG TAX NOTICE Dog licenses become delinquent on May 1.

The children of Mr. and Mrs. Con Hangartner came Sunday and helped their parents move to Postville to reside.

Leo Sebastian, Howard Gordanier, Shafer Cole, Harold Meland and Don Bush were down Yellow river Sunday afternoon learning the suckers to leap from the bottom of the river up onto the bank, and in this sport they were quite successful. They are of the opinion the trout were attending a convention somewhere, however, as they failed to get a strike. Charles Hoth of the Frankville locality, who has a private pond on his farm, which he had stocked with carp and other native fish, concluded it was time to get rid of the carp, and hence on Sunday last began thinning them out. A number of the carp had attained the weight of about five pounds and a sucker was also brought to shore that weighed 3 Mi pounds, which all must admit is some sucker. R. V. Pearson of Hardin was a Postville business visitor last Saturday, and during a talk with him he informed us that he is going to have his residence property in Postville, just west of the Schuette filling station, remodeled some during the coming summer and that this fall he and Mrs. Pearson will remove to Postville to reside, all of which will be good news to the many friends of this estimable couple. Word reaches us that the reason Mr. and Mrs. H. D. Webb and Mrs. James Gregg are not yet home from California is due to a mishap to the Webb car a week or more back, when a truck blazed into their car while they were waiting for a traffic light to turn green so that they might proceed, and the damages sustained had to be repaired before they could start back to Iowa. Fortunately none of them were injured in the least.
