TO GIVE UP LOCAL STORE
Fred A. J. Lloyd Will Discontinue Bus
Fred A. J. LJayd. who has been in
the men's furnishing business in this
city for over twenty ypars is goihg
out of the business on this side of the
river. Mr. Lloyd has two stores, one
in Davenport and the other here. His

satisfactory "arrangements for its re

Sharpshooter of the Revolution.
As soon as a pioneer boy was big
enough to level a rifle he was given
powder and ball to shoot Squirrels,
After a little practice 'be was' required
to bring in as many squirrels as be
had received charges under penalty of
a severe lecture or even of having his
Jacket "tauned." At the age of twelvt
the boy became a fort soldier, with
loophole assigned him: from which to
fight when the settlers rallied against
an Indian ' foray. -Growing older, be
became n htrnter of deer, elk, buffalo
ond bear, skilled in trailing and in
utilizing cover, : capable of enduring
long marches through trackless nioun
tain forests. ' At night be was content
to curl up in a single blanket besOe'a
small fire and- sleep under the roof of
heaven. If It rained, in a few minutes
ho built him a lodge of bark or boughs
with no implement but his one pound
tomahawk. Incessant war with the
Indians taught him to be his own gen
oral, to be ever On the alert, to keep
his head and shoot straight under fire.
Pitted against an nemy who' gave no
quarter, but tortured the living and
