The guests brought baskets filled with delicious things to eat and after a sumptuous dinner the afternoon was spent very pleasantly in a social way. Those present were Mr. and Mrs. Ed Schultz and family, Mr. and Mrs. Geo. Schultz and family, Mr. and Mrs. Louis Schultz and family, Mr. and Mrs. Albert Schultz, Mrs. Louise Schultz and family, Harry Lenth,, Mrs. Fred Kamp, Mr. and Mrs. Henry Mohs and family, Mrs. Minnie Kohrs, Mrs. Minnie Wclzel, Mr. and Mrs. Walter Sander, Mrs. Emma Diederich, Mrs. Chris Sander, Mr. and Mrs. Carl Wilke, Mr. aiid Mrs. Fred Miene, Mrs. Ruby Doan and family, Mr. and Mrs. Louis Harnack and family. Read the acts In today's Herald! Horace Gordanicr and Irvin Thomson were visitors in Ossian Sunday evening. Mrs. John L. Gregg has been under a doctor's care the past week, but is now on the mend. Miss Ada Schullz, teacher of Minert school, gave her pupils a picnic last Thursday at the Old Stone House, and with the parents and friends present they made quite a sizeable gathering and had a most delightful day at this popular resort. The school does not close until next week, but it was thought best to hold the picnic before the possibility of too hot for comfort weather' presented itself. Miss Elsa Nicolay of Spokane, Washington, arrived in Postville Tuesday for a few days visit to her many old friends here. She evidently has found the fountain of youth for she doesn't look a minute older than when she left here 15 years ago for the west coast. She has a fine position with a Savings and Loan Co. She reports her mother, the Rileys and the rest of the Nicolay family enjoying good health and all desirous of being remembered to their friends in old Postville. Mr. and Mrs. H. J. Schuette, Mr. and Mrs. Bert E. Tuttle were visitors in Guttenberg last Sunday afternoon, and many others from out of town were also there watching the workers on the big dam busy with the work of repairing the damage to the dam recently when a section of the cofferdam gave way, causing a financial loss to the construction company that is estimated at close to $50,000. It is mighty pretty driving through the country at this season to note the St. Patrick's Day finish that covers the farmers fields and decorates the trees. And old king corn is also showing up in splendid shape, as one could see the rows in both ways, and corn plowing will be quite general by the last of this week. WE'VE! MADE GAINS!

PAUL P. STEWART Very seldom are the voters of any legislative district offered the chance to elect a man for a first term who has the knowledge of state affairs and the contacts with influential men which will fit him to take an effective share in legislation from the start. Paul P. Stewart of Maynard, Fayette county, who is a candidate for the Republican nomination for state senator from the Allamakee-Fayette district, has not only the ability and force of character to make a good legislator, but also the knowledge and experience to enable him to make a valuable legislator from the beginning of his service. Mr. Stewart has acquired the habit of active, effective leadership through his many responsible posts in farm organizations. Known as one of the outstanding farmers and dairymen in northeast Iowa, he has been for many years past a director in the Iowa state fair and the superintendent of its dairy department. For 7 years president of the Iowa association of Holstein breeders, a director in the national association of Holstein breeders, and vice-president of the Iowa State Dairy association. In fact, he has been at all times for the past twenty-five years constantly in one or more places of responsibility where he has learned many sides of public affairs, and at the same time has made acquaintance with many of the influential and prominent men in Iowa. If elected to the state senate, Mr. Stewart would go there prepared to take a capable part in legislation from the very first day, without having to wait to "learn the ropes." This special fitness of Paul Stewart for a legislative place is something which the voters of Allamakee and Fayette counties might well take into account when casting their ballots for state senator at the primary June 1.— Fayette County Leader. On Sunday afternoon last Mr. and Mrs. H. E. Roberts drove down to the Louis McNally farm, south of Luana, to call on Mr. McNally, who has been in quite poor health the past three months, but now seems to be gradually regaining his health. While there they inspected Mr. McNally's fine new barn, which is a whopper in size, and it is said will hold more hay than any other barn in the state of Iowa. A man giving the name of John Collins of Waukon was brought to the Postville Community hospital in this city by a load of boys, who claimed they had found him lying by the roadside below Dubuque suffering from injuries. Mr. Collins states he was riding with a commercial tourist and the car overturned. Dr. Milton Kiesau was called to attend to Mr. Collins injuries, which consist of several broken ribs. Mrs. Julia Pearson, who makes her home with her son, Chet Pearson, and family on route two, Postville, reached her eighty-sixth birthday anniversary on Saturday, May 23rd, but owing to her advanced age and somewhat impaired health she was unable to hold a party as she had planned. However, on Sunday a group of her children, grandchildren and great­ grandchildren, and a number of her friends went down by auto and paid her a visit which she heartily enjoyed, and the many friends of this fine old lady trust that she may be spared in health to celebrate still other happy returns of her natal day. Those present were Mrs. Delmar Reincke, Mrs. Dorothy Groth, Mrs. Hilda Bruns, Mrs. H. P. Hawkins, Mrs. W. W. Brooks, Mrs. Frances Beedy, Mrs. Katherine Abernethy, Mrs. Wm. F. Heins, Mrs. Jane Laughlin; Mrs. Fred Ernst. There were four grandchildren and six great-grandchildren present.
