Ed. Bourbon News,
Dear Sir : ix
a letter from this state might
of interest to a few of your many
readers, I take the 1 iberty to forward
you a short co mmunication.
Our city is situatod in the heart
a very rich and beautiful farm
ing country, near the center of the
state, and is supplied with water
from the Iowa river by the
It contains between 9 and 10
thousand inhabitants And is one of
the most business and enterprising
little cities in the State. We
have two rail roads: the Chicago &
North Western and the Iowa Uon
tral crossing at this place, making
easy access to all four points of the
compass. We also have a new-
railroad graded to within a few
milfta of the citv. This road is to
run diagonal through the state and '
having it's terminuses at McGregor
and Nebraska city. This, when
complete, will give us three main
lines or six branches extending in
different directions from here.
Our manufactures here are very
extensive for a city of this size.
Some of the most important are the
Ketchum Wagon Works, giving
employment to a great many laboring
men and turning .out five
thousand wagons a year. Another
factory of vast importance is the
Iowa barb wire lactory, employing
befcween and 100 men and r un
ning night and day. Last, but not
least, we will speak of the Marshall
Sugar Kenning company or
Works, for the manafacture of
sugar and syrup out of corn. They
employ about 200 men, and have
a capacity for consuming three
thousand bushels of corn daily, and
thfiv are now extending their
works with the intention of doub
ling that amount. We have other
manufactures of less importance, of
those we will name Furniture and
Carriage Factories, three machine
shops and foundries ; also the Iowa
Central R. R. has it's headquarters
at this place. Common Laborers
are in demand at all times and get
from ftl. 25 to SI. 75 nerdav. Men
with trades, such as machinists,
carpenters, brick layers and painters
get from 2 to 4 dollars a day.
The prohibition law has done
nothing for this town yet, as the
saloons still continue to sell, and of
this kind of property, I am sorry
co say, we have a vast amount, and
breweries and bottling houses.
The farmers here ha7f Just finished
harvesting. The oats an'

B. J. Kendall & Co., Gents; 1 had a
very valuable Hambletonian colt which I
prized very highly; he had a large bone
spavin on one joint and a small one on
the other, which made him very lame ; I
had him under the charge of jtwo
surgeons who failed to cure him. I
was one day reading the advertisement of
Kendalls's Spavin Cure in the Chicago
Express, I determined at once to try it,
and got our druggists here to send for it;
they ordered three bottles, 1 took them
all and thought I would give it a
thorough trial, and used according to directions
and the fourth day the colt ceased
to be lame, and the lumps had disappeared.
I used but one bottle and the
colts limbs are as free from lumps and as
smooth as any horse in the state. lie is
entirely cured. The cure was so remarkable
that I let two of my neighbors have
the remaining two bottles who are now
using it. Very Respectfully,
L. T. FOSTER.

This book, during the short time since
its original publication, has been recognized
as one of the most reliable authorities
on anything pertaining to the horse's
condition or treatment. The best evidence
of its popularity is the immense
sale which it has met with, over G50,000
have been published and sold in all parts
of the nothern states. Hundreds of testimonials
to the efficacy of the treatment
advised can be shown, and in many cases
a reference to this book and prompt following
of its advises has saved the lives
of valuable animals. It is plain and simple
in its terms, and can be understood
by anybody. A distinguished vetrinary
surgeon, who possesses a library comprising
the most costly books on the horse,
recently said that he would part with al
most any of them rather than with this
treatise, which comprises so much.
