BUAUU, 8w Duoorah, Iowa Bethel Breezes. Mertio Cook's bruises and broken arm are getting well very fast. We are still alive and feel thankful for kind friends and neighbors. A. B. Cook superintends a S. S. at tho Evergroen school house every Sunday afternoon. The sociable last Wednesday evening at Will Meier's was largely attended. Quito a largo number were down from your town. On tho part of the S. S. we want to thauk everybody there for the money received. It gives us quite a start on the next year's expenses of the S. S. It is very dry for husking shock corn. As I think of it, to hind eorn fodder cut a piece of binding twino the right length to go around tho bunch of fodder to bind, straddle the bunch of fodder with your face to the tops, put your aims around the bunch with the string in one hand, now lift the fodder nnd put the string around, clasp the bunch between the legs, pull the string tight and grip the bunch with the legs liko a vice, pull and grip until tho bun- dlo is bound tight enough. By tho events of the last week we aro led to believe life is ever changing. Real estate has not been on a very big boom but personal effects hare been on the move. Andrew Oleson moved from Even Swenson's house into ono of his own in Franklin township, A. M. L. Braimird moved into the Swcnson louse, James Lawson moved into Ihe Brainard house, David Vickery into tho ono Lawson left, Press Gilson into the last house vacated, Lee VanHorn and Charley Powell exchanged houses, and I hope all arc happy in their new homes. J. II. Meier is very busy looking after his political canvass. Now, as our democratic friends said eight years ago as to president, wo need a change. So it is with auditor of this county. After a man is in office for a number of years ho gets more or less .'nroless. I think of one instance just now. The law makes it the duty of county auditors to correct the township plat every two years for tho assessors of incorporated towns and townships. Now 1 am quite suro tho presont incumbent has neyer corrected one of these plats since he was in office. If tho democrats never intend to put another man in nomination, friends, democrats that aro dissatislicd, help us put a man into tho office that is well fitted in every way for tho place. EIIAB. • A The Gormnn Poper. At hist, after the third trial, it scorns that our German friends aro to havo a paper liore in their own language Mr. L."E.

In other words, ho don't want to voto nt all for that particular oflico. There nro two ways ho may accomplish this. Tho first is to not mark the eir- clo nt tho hoad of any of th'e' tickets but mark tho squares opposite to every name on tho ticket except tho namo ho doos not wish to vote for. Tho other is to mark tho cross in tho oircle and nothing olso EXCKI'T tho nanio'referrod to, and cross out tho squares opposite to these names on two or moro of the tickots, whon tho voto will not boeount- od for cither candidate.
