What will agitate the people of all J communities now more than auything else l>i a few months, is the disposition ; of the postnllices under the forthcom- | ing administration. That they all will j be changed is certain, and that the fourth-class offices will be changed as soon as possible after the 4'.h of March is also certain. What will bo the new rule for presidential postoflicos, or offices of the third class, we do not know. It was the policy of Mr. Cleveland befcre, and of Mr. Harrison as well, to allow third-class postmasters to sarve out their terms, with the exception of those men who were considered "offensive partisans." Partisan editors who held these positions had to go at once under both administrations, and they will certainly have to go now, in short order. But if the same rule applies that Ins under tho two preceding adniinistra'.ions (that is, Cleveland and Harrison) such postmasters as our Mr. Perry, will not be distuibed, for a while, at least. And in this case we hope it will be true, as Mr. Perry is certainly not an oflonsive partisan and he has done more to givo the people a good office than all his predecessors. The office is now in better shape in all its appointments than any office in this part of the state. Besides we know that Mr. Perry carried his commission in his pocket for months and gave his predecessor tho full salary of tho office until his commission expired, something that we never heard of before. Common justice would do the same by him. Kd Hinds tho Stuff. It gives us pleasure to nolo the prosperity of former Post township people E. B. Hinds was nominated by the republicans of Gago Co., Neb., for the legislature and won by nearly two to one, running ahead of every man on his ticket. The following is what his home paper says of the race: "Ed Hinds can represent Gage county in the legislature for the next ten years if he has a mind to do so." ESTABLISHED 1883. "Mr. E. B. Hinds, our own Ed., heads the list with a total vote of 3,151, a plurality jf 1,670. He leads the other candidates for representative by- over two hundred votes which is substantial ptoof that Mr. Hinds was by- far the most popular candidate for representative on the ticket. This is further shown by the vote in this (Paddock) snd Gleuwood townships. In the former he receive 1 121 votes. Mr. Arnold also a resident of this vicinity receiving but 85. He also defeated Mr. Arnold in his own township (Gleuwood) although two years ago when Faxor. ran, Mr. Arnold tccuived nearly 00 votes the most." —A ne«v son is reported at the homo of Leland Horn, noi'th of Bethel ehureh. -You will savo money in buying your winter rubbers of L. Stroebel & Son. —Remember tho auction sale of J. C. Taylor's horses on Saturday, at one o'clock. --Aftei the maeting of tho Masonic lodge, on Tuesday evening, the members present repaired to tho Park hotel and partook of a line oyster supper. All agree that Dr. Mabry and family- did nobly by the craft. —Ed Morarity is down from Carrington, N. D.. called here by the sickness of his sister. —Thanks to our friend, II. A.

INDIANA MINEUAI. SI-KINGS , Ind., Nov. 15, 1892. W. N. Burd'.ck, Esq., Postvillo, Iowa. Dear Sir:—The REVIEW comes to us regularly Monday moruing, nnd as we open it it seoms to say, "How are you getting along?" So I thought 1 would drop you a few lines, and if you can cipher it out and have time and space you might say to those that care to hear from me, I am no better than 1 was at home. After throe weeks of very heavy treatment, consisting of being packed in warm mud an hour, ten minutes under a shower and ten minutes under a water bath, and drinking less than a barrel of water each any. No medicine of any kind is given under this treatment. I have held my weight, which was 120 pounds. When I Arrived hero I did not care much whether I was placed in care of the bath man or undertaker, and it took some time to recover from the effects of the journoy nnd opiates. I shall stay another week at least. They relieve and cure lots of people here, but occasionally they get one they can't cure. Yes, tlui domocrals beat us, and there are very strong indications here that they intend to lower the surplus. That is the surplus—whiskey. With kindest regards for all, 1 am &e, P. T. SMITH. To Our Patrons. This is the lust announcement before moving into our new store, as we in terd to move next Monday. Friday and Saturday of this week we will continue oiii discount sale on dress goods, crockery, Ac., and wo will give a special discount on clothing. Also on canned goods, (peaches, pumpkins, corn, &e.) We take this opportunity to thank tho people of Postvillo and vicinity for the very liberal patronage and good will shown'us since we have been with you, and solicit your further patronage, which we shall always try to merit by- fair treatment and low prices. Come and se^, us in our new store on the corner, where-we - shall bo prepared .to servo you better than ever. Very Respectfully, Bixnv & WILLIAMS. A Fine Market. J. B. Hart's new butcher, Christ Salzgeber, of Boseobul. Wis., is a first- class butcher, or at least a lirst-elass market keeper nnd cutter. i-or tho first tiino Postvillc now has a market right up to city style. The meats are hung in an attractive style, making a fine and appetizing display, and everything is kept clean and neat. Under his advico an addition is to be built on the rear to mako more room, a new refrigerator is to bo put in and arrangements made to pickle all pork and hams used in the ourkct through tho summer, thus saving froights both ways and the pucker's prolits. Mr. Hart has ample capital to do this and there certainly is money in it. We are proud of our moat market, and we like to commend such enterprise.

An invitation is extended to everyone to come and spond a social hour and make tho acquaintance'of Rov. Mr, Hand and family. —Rov. Smith preached a line sermon last Sunday evening on the theme, "Tho best thing in the world." We fully agree with him that LOVE is Mic best thing. It certainly is the strongest power in the universe known to man, and we beliovo that no explorer of the bright beyond, during all the cycles of eternity, will find a hotter or stronger force, for we are told, and no man slnuld doubt it, that Cod is lovo. Wo haye always believed that tho man .' woman whoso heart is overflowing ith love cannot bo far wrong no matter what faith lie or sho may havo or may not havo. There can be no appropriate place in "outer darkness" for tho soul that is attuned to the sympho- cy of lovo. This is a Ihcmo which NO delight to dwell upon, and is the key nolo to all tho "SutKlay Night" articles wu have written during tho past qunr- er of a acntury. Our lioarl goes out to that minister who preaches lovo and not fear, hopo and not despair. Wc bolievo the angels touch the lips of such ministers and such men and mpartto them an inspiration thatsein- tilutes directly from tho great white throne. —Tho board of supervisors havo boon in session this week to canvass tho voto of tho county.
