In this line we are especially strong, and on sale day we are to give you some strong inducements as follows : The School Board Ask for $7,000 for a New Building—Election Set for Mny 4. As was indicated last week the school board have decided to call an election to vote on building a new school house. Something has to be done and they decided after investigation that building at once will be both cheaper and more convenient. The committee appointed to look for a suitable room to rent for the present term found that the lack of blackboards, water closet facilities, etc., made it impracticable to go outside the school building, and they accordingly decided to use the basement room for part of the primary department. This will be for only the eight weeks of the spring term. Seats have been arranged in. the hall for high school recitations. This is of course very inconvenient and is only a makeshift. If the new building is voted it can be made ready for the opening of the fall term and a vote is asked early on that account. If it is not voted tbe district will be to the expense of renting rooms and fitting them up, besides doing something to make the old depot building fit for winter. The plan talked is to build a four- room brick building near the Northwestern track, to accommodate the Milwaukee depot and also about 100 now in the main building. The attendance is now 557 in the high school building, .an average of 55 to a room. In very few schools is the average allowed to go above 40 to a room. HORSE breeders will be pleased to learn that L. T. Martin of Livermore will be on hand to see them again this spring in his old occupation and attend to their stallion colts.—4t2 SEE Orr before you let your job of painting.

They credit him to Webster City, but before he went to Webster City he was a resident of Irvington. He knew the Beed family in Albion and followed them to Kossuth in 1857, his sole possession a violin. He was a kind of carpenter in those days and built Mr. Reed's house on the ridge. He had an old batch hall of his own which burned down, and he was noted for always wearing shoes made of gunny sacking. Tbe soles wore out every two weeks and be sewed in new ones. In tbe early years of the war he went to Webster City, where be had a sister. Since then he has made a great name for himself if anything comes of his floating hotel.

L, J). A, HAGGARD, Auctioneer, Old settlers of Plum Creek will re member the Dockstader family, who lived near the Bohn farm, Mrs. Dockstader lives in Des Moines and her oldest son gets a. $2,600 salary in a wholesale grocery house. The other children have good situations. The county medical association met yesterday, Drs. Hill, Hall, Bliss, and Bowen in from the outside. A most interesting meeting was held, and the following delegates to the state association were chosen: Garfield, Morse, Kenneflck, Bliss, and Bean. They go to Des Moines today. Guy Taylor and Amie Puegnet were up by Armstrong last week on a bunting trip, bagging with other game eight brant. They brought down with them the old flint lock recently found in the bed of Swan Lake, lost it is claimed in 1854. It is quite a curiosity as is also the old hand-made beaver trap. Those who visit the school building and see tbe crowded condition at present will certainly favor some change. One change is to build a new building. The other is to rent and fit up rooms somewhere and repair the old' depot school building. THE UPPER. DES MOINES believes it is economy to build. The members of the fire company gave a swell banquet last night in the city hall to the mayor and the council. Music by male quartettes and by Guy and Nellie Taylor and C. H, Slagle on mandolins and guitars, and speeches by Mayor Haggard, Councilmen Vesper, Chapin, Wadsworth. and by Guy Grove added to the interest of the occasion. It was a spread fit for a king. The county board paid the steam heat men off and are not holding any money for O, W. McMurray in his garnishment suit. A county cannot be garnished unless it wants to be and the board decided to be rid of any further bother. Mr. McMurray's hotel has all the pipes in, but no heaters, and the contractor has quit the job. He will have to buy heaters and attach them himseif. Is often produced by simply thinking about house-cleaning. It might be avoided largely if at this interesting period of housekeeping when the husband takes his cold lunch at the back door with the tramp you had visions of freshly-painted walls, clean floors, and velvety carpets to compensate you for your labors. We can assist you in driving away the blues by selling you the Sherwin-Williams paint— the best mixed paint made — mixed all ready to apply, then by getting a good paint brush' you can get your husband interested in using it, and by the time he has the floors and wood work painted he will like it so well that he will get some of our buggy and wagon paint and- paint up the old buggy and wagon and make them look like new. Then our carpet lining— which is so cheap— put under your carpets will make a desirable cushion for it, and keep, it from wearing, as well. Let us help you clean house— and save you many unchristian-like thoughts. % ""''.^-S •4 •'X 1 ^'1 ^ C. M.
