-i.Ar as
Everybody knows that under the
impulse of a strong upward tendency
in prices, the shipment of stock from
this county, in common with other
plaoea, was wonderfully stimulated.
But while this is true, we fancy theie
are comparatively few who realize
the magnitude of stock exportation
from Cedar oounty under audi
pressure, or the immense amount of
money which by it has been placed
in tbe pockets of our farmers within
a comparatively few days.
As we know nothing spiectfic altout
other towna in and adjacent to the
oounty, we can only give au idea of
this matter by presenting tbe actual
figurea of tbe stock business trans
acted at our owu town of Tipton.
We will gu b*ck no farth-r is aaj
case than Monday of last week, Kith
inat., from which time up to Thurs
dav evening—four days—Reeder
Bros, bought 501 hogs averaging
238$, Vest ft Stanton 786 averaging
248J and Sheldon one car-load. In
ddition to this Reeders bought over
100 Friday and Saturday and some
parties shipped for themselves, so
that there were twenty-two ear loads
of hogs shipped from here last week.
On Monday and Tuesday of this
week the Reeders and Vest & Stan
ton each shipped three cars of hogs,
Stanwood ft Co., of Stanwood, ship
ped two and other parties two more
staking ten loads of hogs be»ide-4wn
loads of cattle shipped by W. W.
Aldrich, and quite a number of hogs
left over in the yards and bought but
not delivered. Running this over in
your mind, and taking into considera
tion Mechanicsville, Stanwood,
Clarence, Loudon, Wilton, Du
rant, Downey, West Branch,
Olin, and other places from
whioh Cedar oounty stock has been
shipped, you will readily conclude
that it ia a moderate eetimate to say
that within the ten days immediately
preceding the issue of this paper
Cedar county farms have furnished
the market with more than one hun
dred car loads of hoga. Estimate the
probable value of these at the priees
that have been paid and make due
allowance for valun of cattle shipped
during the same time, and you will
at once admit that one hundred
thousand dollar» is rather under than
over the amount of cash brought In
to this county by sale of stock alone
for the brief time named.
A little study on the problem thus
imperfectly presented, with the furth
er reflection that the hog crop has
ouly fklrty begun to move and that
fat and fatting cattle are untouched,
will lead almost any one, we think,to
the conclusion that there should not
be any very "hard times" in "old Ce
dar,'' but that on the contrary money
should circulate pretty freely and
debts be paid pretty promptly. So

DONK.—A week ago laat Friday the
village Ol Tama (,'i^—a town about
the si/.e of Tip o i and only three
cotmUss we?t of here—had a grand
•eelebrntkm in honor of her
new waterworks. Addrewes were
made by distiti^uisibed speakers, and
a grand barbecue and dinner was
paftakrn u£ at the Fair Ground*,clo*
ing with a hall and banquet at night.
As these
'•'waterworks" consti­
tute an enterprise not only quite nov
el hut also of considerable magnitude
and of very great importance to the
town in question, it may be that the
following brief deacription of them,
copied from an exchange. Hill not
be unintereating:
The water works are constructed
by datumitisr the Iowa river, at "the
narrows," 3J miles above the city,
aud cutting a canal. Some enter
prising citizens conceived the plan
and a aul»aeription was iasued, com
pany organized, the sum of eighty
thousand dollars pl'dged, and the
work com me
need! A race was build
ed running east w»rd along the line
of railroad uv'es. making heavy
levees along oach side, and when
near Tama Citv surrounding a large
tract of land, making a reservoir con
Utiuilg lirai't euty £C«Cd ut »uif«t.t\
and a depth of water averaging
aloiit fifteen feet, thus creating a
beautiful inland lake adjacent to the
city ami with appliances to take the
water from its east side and use it
for manufacturing purposes. We
have it demonstrated that at the low
est atage of wa'er there will be at
least ti.Vfliorso jxtwer and at a medi
um stage of the river, not leas than
2,000 horse-power. One mile west
of Tama City they have constructed
an acqueduct over Deer Creek, about
four hundred feet long, to enable the
waters of that creek to enter the riv
er without hindrance, and with no
danger to the works which have
been construeted. The city has pur
chased of the company a thirty horse
power for its own use in case of fire
or any other
they may see
fit to use it fw. Tliere has also been
sold sufficient power for a furnace
and foundry, snd upon the opening
spring it will be rushed forward to
final completion. Parties are also
negotiating f«»r power for a large
merchant flouring mill, and there ia a
fair prospect of the manufacturing in
terests of Tama Citv looking upward.
