I Now,' Mr. Editor, not knowing who be chairmen of the various township joards are, I thought the best way to lach them was through the medium f the press. The importance and need ' retrenchment must be apparent to reryone; Two years ago the state jard of equalization raised the as- jssed value of our land about one half, ur taxes were correspondingly raised > about that extent. And yet the ate of Iowa is some $600,000 in debt, --ils means that our taxesi must he 11 more increased to meet this deficit !• that a reduction In the expenses fust be made. These are the ques- ons that face the tax payers of Iowa. I would suggest that, the chairman each township board at once see to mis and if he cannot give the - time Seoessary to circulate the.petition, that Se sees to it that some other party does i. Every citizen ought to feel interest nough in this matter to push the jirork, and when the petitions are Sgne'd they should be promptly tor- ' Vto Des Moines as stated in the Dodge Post, I seen an itlm taking from the your Paper, saying that there was some (260) homesteads to be taken up in Kossuth County yet.if you- would please ana this giving me Particulars about I would be obliged to you Inclosed you will find stamp for reply.

FOR A FOUR DAYS' FAIR, the kosstoth fcotttiiy Socifet* 1 So elded at tt Meeting of ti>6 *ecl6fs Two new features will mark the Kossuth county faif of 1891 it will last four days instead of three 6.S heretofore^ and there Will be a big competitive ex- .hibitioti by the creameries of the couh- ,ty, with an expert from one of the Chicago commission houses to act as judge. With this fair the Kbsstith association steps into the ranks with the big county fairs of Iowa and Illinois. They all have four days' fairs. It is impossible to judge the stock property and show it otf in three days. Besides one rainy day has nearly ruined several fairs lately. Under the new arrangement the judges will have plenty of time, the stock'can be properly exhibited, and one rainy day will not bring everything to a standstill. A full program of races and amusements will be arranged for the three days, $300 extra being appropriated to that end. The creamery exhibit ought to bring out the finest lot of butter ever shown in Iowa. The county has 17 or 18 creameries, and the judging will be done by a Chicago expert. Ten dollars is offered for the best one-gallon jar of creamery butter, ahd $5 for the second. The society will provide a refrigerator to hold the exhibits. Every creamery will compete. '.."•'.'/ The directors of the fair society met Saturday and nearly all were present. They made a lot of new premiums, elected superintendents, provided for getting out the.premium list, appoint^ ed a committee of five to arrange a racing and amusement program, and decided to make this the best fair ever held in northern Iowa, The fair will be held' the last week In September. , Disc Harrows, Seeders, Cultivators, •UM Steel Lever Harrows, Plows, Corn Planters—everything in the line of Farm Machinery at wain I have the best goods and the lowest prices, Call and see me before you buy.'

After a hearty dinner and a pleasant afternoon they returned to their Algona home arriving about 4 o'clock. On getting out of the cutter Mrs. Walston complained a little of feeling rheumatic. On entering the house she said something about feeling better with her cloak off, and removed it. Then she stretched her hands towards the fire saying something more about "that rheumatism," and wondering where she would feel It next. Those were her last words. She fell forward into a chair dead. The girl gave an alarm and everything was done but not a flutter of the heart was ever felt. The funeral was held at the Congregational church Friday, Rev. Sinclair officiating, and many friends gathered to give expression to feelings of esteem and sorrow. 1 Mrs. Walston's maiden name was Julia A.
