JS obliged to publish the results out receiving returns from Ban* and Irvington. It has the full iping figures for all car lots from |a City, Germania, Lt-dyard, Burt, Sexton, Algona, Hobart, Whit- Sdre and LuVerne. But the remain- jftwo stations for some reason are lilling to make any report, although toraparison between towns was in- tied or will be mado. The total •pmentB of the other 10 stations are Ifolliiwa: . Stock, 820 curs; grain, [ curs', hay, 4,712 cars; and miscel- |pus, 20^ cars. The grand total is cars, which divided into train of 17 cars each would make 410 Ins, or considerably over one train a |K number of interesting speculations Hit be mado from.these figures. The Ipment of hay alone reaches about 13 fcloads a day for the year. Grain stock would make up five cars .re. The value of the hay at $30 to |;car would reach $131,000 or nearly ^apiece for every man, woman and 'Id in the.county. , imong the miscellaneous items Alia has 14 car. loads of flour and five IJrick. Poultry, butter, etc., make |a share of the town shipments, while which is a big item at Other sta- 5'ns, does not cut much of a figure re. In hay shipments Ledyard leads with |39 cars. In grain Burt is ahead with cars, and in stock Whittemore Ids with 248 oars. Wesley and Sex- follo'w in hay shipments, Algona |d Burt in stock, and Germania a.nd |hitteuiore in grain. Among the big tippers are Germania and Swea.City, fth new stations. Their figures have 3n made public and are 538 car loads ; Swea City, and 673 for Germania. |xton is away up as a shipping station d Hobart is not slow. It is impossible to estimate how much ishipped from Kossuth at outside sta- ons. Elmor(3, Armstrong, Buffalo bnter, Corwith, Bode, and West Bend "i all on the county border and draw pavily from thf. county, while the 3ly stations in Kossu'th which draw 'am other counties are Wesley, Lu- lerne and .Whittemore. Hundreds of loads go from the county that Ibuld not be included, in any report •)m Kossuth county stations, even il Jl had reported. IThe enormous surplus product this county with its resources get undeveloped, and its population altered, is but a sample of what Iowa [s doing,as a state, and it speaks for the wealth which in spite of the enormous I rain upon our money by way of .inter- |st, insurance, freights, etc., is bound |o accumulate. No st_ate or county yhich is pouring out daily hundreds of Stains or single trains of produce more Ihan is needed to supply its people will |ong remain in need pf anything. ; If Cossuth can merely keep up the report K>t 1894 for ten years every man who ends to his knitting will be well-to-do, le can't help it, for the money is bound |to come in. . fdOUNTY'S YOUNGEST OEEAMEEY, flrvington Has the Last Creamery but It la Pushlnff for the First Place— a flood Half Tear Snowing,' IRVINGTON, Iowa, Jan. 23, 1895.— To the Editor: At your request I hand you the following- report of our creamery business: We received' the first milk on the morning of June 4, 1894, Our patronage has been so small as compared with other old and well established creameries, that a report of our little business I fear will be of plight interest, but such as it Js I give it: Amount Milk, 145,510'» 134,609 tt> 153,095 ft 131832ft 09 292 ft 82 356 ft 71,673 8) Amount Butter., 5,697 ft 6,456 ft 5.585ft 5,257 ft 4,086 ft 3,628 ft 2,803 ft , 847,117 ft 33,611 ft 86,740.66 Money [ 808.533,01 1,107.30 3.9g 1,188.543.67 1,143.45 4.00 860,40 808,81 fS63.Q33 4,1 4.4 1.91 .617 .727 ,708 ,87 .87 .08 ,826 i}je price recsived fpr 'butter 'was 177 per hundred in June, $18.55 in |, $g0.98 in August, PU8 in Sep- |ber, $31.06 in October, $22.89 in lember, and $83,65 in December, rate for 100 pounds milk 79H plus skim will?; aveiv price fpr pjje ppund butter each , 80c;' average cost nwlsiog one 4 butter 31o.

Our Correspondent Shows Himself Equal to the Occasion With the Wesley tteporter—Wesley News. WESLEY, Jan. 29.—The Wesley Reporter sa.ys that the Wesley correspondent to the U. D. M. complains of gambling going on here, and that to make the assertions and to prove them is two different things, and it furthermore says it shows poor judgment to say anything about it in outside papers, and that there is no more gambling going on here than in other towns within a hundred miles around us. The correspondent to the U. D. M. said " it was the rumor that gambling was carried on here, etc." The editor of the Reporter knows that raffling for horses, buggies, and other articles has been carried on here this winter, and at other times open and without restraint, which all comes under the law of gambling. Perhaps the editor knows the price of the tickets of some of the raffles here at different times is why he thinks it poor judgement to say anything about it in outside papers. Suppose other towns do have more gambling going on than here, that does not make the crime any the less in Wesley. Attorney Fellows is here and is nicely located in his office over Anderson & Co.'s drug store. Wm. M.

Away back in 1869 Joachim Holla came to locate land for a German settlement, attd went out beyowd the "Oft" rlen settlement" in FentoH. He was th6 frontier man. ' He died last Friday bight of heart disease, going to bed as usual and being found dead in the morfiingi He was born in 1826 itt Ger* many, coming to this country in 1868. He remained in McHenry county. 111,, until i860. He was a pioneer sheep raiser in Kossuth, a good farmer, and two years ago was a member of the board of supervisors. In 18fO the "Holtz settlement*' got under headway, and in 1872 THE UPPER DES MOINES said of it: "The 'Holtz settlement' Is located on the head waters of the Black Cat creek and about the same distance northwest fi-otn Algona, The lending man in the commencement of _ this flourishing colony was and still is Joachim Holtz, a thorough farmer and stock grower, as anyone can see by looking over his improvements und examining his fine- blooded stock. The first settlement was made about three years ago and now numbers over fifty families. Large and* well-tilled farms are seen in every direction, where three years ago nothing but the bare, unbroken prairie met the eye. The quantity of grain raised in this neighborhood the past season is enormous. * * ,* " LAST OF THE OYOLONE SUFFEEERS, The Death of Mrs.Cal. Barrlck Closes the Ijlst of Fatalities From September's Storm. Mrs. Cal. Barrick died peacefully Monday at noon. Her funeral was held at the late home in Union today at noon. Her death recalls the devasta< tion of last September. As the cyclone came up Chas. Lee and his family, going from the fair, stopped at Barrick's. There were 12 in the house when it was crushed and they were strung across the adjoining fields. Mrs. Barrick was struck on the hip by a timber and in the abdomen by the stove, and was paralyzed when found. She has never recovered the ruse of her limbs, and for some weeks it has been evident that death must result. She was the only one of the 12 who was seriously injured. It was from the Barrick place that most of the letters were blown that were found over near Osage. SOME. KOBE OF HEFLIN'S EEOOED. He Gets A -way from the Officers and Now Writes to Swea City that He Has Not Been In JEldora. - The Hampton Recorder gives another chapter in Hefl jn's record, in commenting upon his arrest. It says that prior to going to Swea City he was "prac ticing medicine and spoiling poor whiskey at Alexander for a year or more." It adds: "Dr. Heflin left anything but a fragrant reputation behind him when he left Alexander, and left some unpaid debts for admiring friends to remember him by." , .• ; It seems tha_t Heflin fooled the officers who had him in charge after his arrest last week and got away. When ; arraigned before 'Squire Burling Thursday, he waived preliminary examination and succeeded in buncoing both County Attorney Ward and Justice Burling into accepting a $500 appearance bond secured by a. chattel mortgage on a team, harness and buggy in Floyd county. It js said he has no such chattels in existence, and the doctor is at large. ' And now comes the Swea City Herald and says: " Nearly every paper picked up of late has contained an account of a man by the name of Heflin, who had worked a confidence game on an Illinois map, selling him an alleged drug store located at Eldora, Iowa, and getting $350,00 on the sale, It says that the man is now in jail, and gives his former residence at this place, And now it transpires that the Dr. Heflin formerly of this place is not in jail but at Keokuk, Iowa, and has written to this place stating the fact," CHASE & SANBORN'S famous coffees and seal brand tea, Walker Bros., exclusive agents, t .I.
