The distance between the business district and the Northwestern and the Milwaukee stations Is one of the big recollections of the town In early days, for he hud to walk every time he changed trains here. pioneer Wild Life Uecallwl. Professor Shimek said that at the tlnu- of hfa earlier visits to Kossuth tho country was filled with wild life, both plant and animal. He added that he had all of the qualifications for president, because he was oorn In a log cabin, he split mils in bin youth, and at numerous times he has driven mules. His recollections of these earlier years wore of huge flights of passenger pigeons, so many that they sometimes darkened the sun and when they alighted broke branches with their weight. Other recollections were of thousands of dUcks, wild geese, prairie chicken and quail among the pioneer bird life, and of muskrats, beaver, skunk, and other fur-bearing animals, not to mention the coyote and the wolf. In those days the banks of rivers were covered with growths of trees, flowers, grasses, and underbrush that provided food for birds and the tender roots and stream plant life necessary to support fish.

"Drainage carries away all excess water almost as soon as it falls, said he professor. Consequently 1 the rush of water In flood times and the stagnation of water In dry periods hae destroyed plant life in Iowa streams, and game fish have per- shed with It.'

This paper was started in 1925 in the first year that JI. K. Sperry, now of Kenwlok, was superintendent here. Members o£ the faculty and of the student body suggested names, and the name selected by the judges was suggested by a Miss Gamelle, a teacher here then. The 'Putuwlz (Put-You-WIse) Is a 5-column 4-page paper giving the news of the local schools, such as basketball' games or other sports, programs, etc. Each grade contributes Its share of the news, as much as possible being done by the children themselves. They tell of their work, who does best in various tasks, ot improvement they are making, and so on. Each child likes to see his or her name in the paper. 'Then, besides the school news, there are several columns of local news and the advertisements which pay for the publishing of the paper. The advertising covers all expense and sends the paper to the home of every child In the. school as well as many other homes. Some people who have moved 'away subscribe for the paper at 75c. The editorial staff is suggested 'by the faculty. "Pupils who have spec ial talent in journalism are chosen and they name their assistants, Tw< members of the faculty supervise the paper.

The prairie chicken and the quail have already gone. Outraged farmers kill pheasants on sight, claiming preposterous damage to crops, and the onetime swamp grass land that formed the nesting places of thousands of quail and prairie chicken is now .planted to crops which increase the surplus that is driving down the prices of farm products, and Miss Williams, English teacher The staff consists of: Editor-in-chief, Mary Jane Lewis Assistant editor, Harold Herzojf, Business manager, Elgar ] Jnclt Peterson Critically Sick—, Cecil Peterson and his wife were called to the former's home at Sanborn Saturday by news of the sickness of his brother .lack, who wpen a great part ot tho summer here Anita Gelhaus had charge of the drug: store till the Underkoflers, o Britt, arrived and brought a clerl from their Britt store to stay dur ng Cecll'H absence* Ex-Lcdyardite State Senator— Some older Ledyard residents might bo interested to leurn that Maurice Carpenter's son has been elected state senator In Brown county, K.
