Special: Good Hope folks count themselves ns fortunate to have had the opportunity on last Sunday to hear Mrs. E. J. Rawson present a talk on the Holy Land. Although the speaker was secured at too late a date to make announcement through the usual channels of press and pulpfit), telephones wtere set M work on Frflday and Saturday and brought out a company of folks which about filled the body of the church. In addition to the illumination of much familiar information concerning Palestine, which the speaker added through her personal touch with the subject, Mrs. Rawson related many items of unique interest with which she had contact which might easily have escaped the notice of one less observant. Her description of the clistoms and types of the people of Palestine and the decay and ruin into which the once glorious nation has fallen was vivid and tragic. Despite this the inspiration described as being experienced by the speaker and others of her party as they came to Jerusalem, Capernaum, Nazareth, Bethlehem, the Sea of Galilee, the Jordan and other places familiarly known to Christ communicated itself in a large measure .to her audience. Following the close of the service a considerable portion of the audience tarried to examine with much interest a collection of pictures, fabrics, and other articles which had been collected by the speaker. The subject matter presented by Mrs. Rawson was obtained on a trip which she took with a party last year. Their itinerary included not only Palestine, but other countries including portions of Egypt, the Isle of Cypress, Italy, Spain, France, the spectacular Monte Carlo, wa»as«»wattc0^«c^^ London, England. Considering the thousands of miles traveled, the strange customs to be encountered, disagreeable difficulties of travel and being away from home to be overcome such a journey would be an undertaking of a ! considerable magnitude. Add to this the knowledge that the speaker celebrated her seventieth birthday while on the trip moves us to take off our figurative hat to a courage and spirit that would venture on such an undertaking and bring back so much of high interest and value to her many friends and acquaintances.

Albert Potratz, well known farmer of the Lotts Creek neighborhood, has decided to leave this community, after over forty years of residence, and will move to Saskatchewan, Canada, with his family in the spring.

Hutchins went to Des Molnes Monday where he will spend a few weeks looking in on the legislature, and will likely furnish the Upper Des Moines-Republican with some sidelights on that ttody.

Mr. and Mrs. Karel Horan left fov Chicago the flrst of the week where Karel lias a position with the Western Electric Company. Mr. and Mrs. Horan formerly lived in Los Ane-eles whern Mr. Horan was associated with a bond company. With the business depression hitting the west badly, Mr. Horan decided to make a change and is pleased with the new work offered him in Chicago. For the past few months they have been living with Mr. Koran's parents, Mr. and Mrs. W. H. Horan. Our new representative, A. H. Bonnstetter, went to Des Moines last Friday to take up his duties in the legislature. Mr. Bonnstetter is the flrst democrat to represent Kossuth countv for some time, but his democracy will have little to do with his work in the house and he will not allow partisanship to influence his actions, but promises to serve the people of the coun- / tv to the best of his ability. He is well j informed and able and we think will nive a crond account of himself during the session. Mr. and Mrs. Hiram White left on Monday morning for Oklahoma City, where Hiram has accepted a position with tho law firm of Welty, Harrison <fe LePon.

Georgia Cole is attending Chicago University for the remainder of this year on a scholarship which she won while a student at Rockford College.
