There was a big family reunion at the Addison Fisher home Sunday, at which 87 of his children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren were present. There were 17 great grandchildren, which-, we think, is the record for any of our Kossuth residents, Mr. Fisher was as young as any of them and enjoyed himself, as they all did, the day being one they will all long remember. Mr. Fisher was in town Monday and in answer to a query told several interesting things about his family as a body, but tho one we recall most clearly is that there is not a democrat in the lot. He is still in his prime, refuses to occupy that easy chair, refuses to grow old, nnd likes a political contest better than ever.

We Never Had a Stove Until we bought a "Cole's Hot Blast Air Tight" of you last winter, which we felt absolutely sure would hold fire and keep our house , warm when we wanted to leave it for the day. This is what a customer told us this fall who used a Cole's stove last winter. Another said, "I used a Cole's Hot Blast stove last winter, kept two office rooms warm night and day, and paid out less than $10 for fuel." Still another: " I put in a few Coles at night before going to bed and had a good fire in the morning; it takes the least fuel of any heating stove I ever saw " Another said: " I would not take $25 for my stove if I could not get another.-" These words of praise were spoken by three different parties who used the stoves in their own homes, and know whereof they speak from actual experience. We can give you their names and a dozen others' who are just as, enthusiastic m expressing their appreciation.
