He was a member of a surveying party, and he was only 15' years old. In the same county, and -within a few miles of i the Scame territory Uncle Dave died j last week Wednesday. .

Exporters. fcha'ng'es between the hands Scarcely' two izations that are centuries old have given way to the new. Bolshevism has a firm grip on the largest country in the world. Varioiis states in the south of this country rose against states in the north on the question of slavery (think of that, in .this man's lifetime), one group was vanquished, and now the wounds are all but forgotten. , . Uncle Dave's birth occurred during the administration of President Van Buren.. Presidents Jackson and John Quincy Adams were still alive. President James Madison had been dead only three years. Van Buren, | music, talks, Information, and, even inaugurated in 1837, was only the eighth president of the United States. Madison was the fourth. When Mr. Haggard made his first trip in Kossuth county Franklin Pierce was president, and Lincoln was practicing law in Illinois, his one term in Congress forgotten. Later Uncle Dave was to fight In the forces commanded by this Illinois lawyer. Tn his own world in 1854 in Kossuth county Mr. Haggard found nothing that would indicate a civilization. The prairie was trackless. Much of the county was swamp, and numerous lakes and ponds. There was nothing here but grass, trees, water, soil, Indians and wild; ani- mnls of the prairie. There wasn't a white settler within miles. The Spirit Lake and Nev,' Ulm massacres had not occurred, hut fear of such outbreaks was never far out of mind. When Mr. Haggard returned to receiv,-.r, and Algona more f«.>c first down. play.s r.-lted five yards, and on the j t | on had started slowly.

Algomi made nine yards number of log cabins, sod houses, etc. Horses and driving-oxen furnished transportation de luxe, but even the best people walked. Since that time came the first railroad, the Milwaukee in 1870; the baseball games are caught from the air in a box. and distributed in hundreds of homes; airplanes have landed and taken passengers from many Kossuth fields; plays talk and sing from a screen—what man of Uncle Dave's youth would have dar-' ed to suggest such things even If he had thought of them? ' Kossuth swamps, through which he broke the ice In the spring of 1854, are now drained. Corn, oats, hay, and other crops grow where once the prairie grass had full sway. None of the wild life of-consequence Is left. The Indians have been forgotten. Wolves, fox, and other prairie animals are rare and cause comment. Cattle, horsesi sheep, and hogs now feed behind restraining fences In peace. Two days next week are allotted for a yearly hunt of pheasants, the only wild life left. Engine driven plows break a path through the deepest snow within a few hours nfter the storm ceases. Farmers come to town every day in a few minutes if they wish instead of spending half the day on the trip and half the night getting home. Machines now cut and thresh, pick and husk, plow and plant. The length of Uncle Dave's life saw the birth of the machine age, and the improvement of conditions within 75 years that had not chang- ''White j l thd'f.b)Mjnye been numerous Insta.n^a^of vM'tte.tarlff Increases by foreign iV$wWW/4l nce the enactment of \tli4','«awley : Smobt bill, that practice 1 was bjt'. ! no means accelerated dlirlng'. tWs.-recent period.

FOR RFttT — MODERN house.—Inquire Sorettfleh^ Store, Lu Verne "Effort pn -the- part of the democratic party to inalst that the present depression is the result of tariff legislation Is purely an effort to befog the issue. The tariff cannot be a director of price trends. The effect of the trirlff Is si step-up between our prices and ••the" -yyb'rld : prlce level. "It effects" 'IE! very- worker who Is employed in 'the production thereof. We are maintaining today a higher price level for all protected commodities and a higher wage level by reason of protection, and the tariff is the only thing .that prevents our prices and 'our wage levels from falling to the prices and wage levels of the world."
