There has been much conjecture as to the real condition of Frank Young, Jr. since his distressing accident. It will be remembered that Frank was thrown from his carriage his head striking the curb stone, there was no contusion visible but the blow was of such severity that he was unconscious for several weeks passing through this stage he was for a time de lirious and this in turn gave way to a dazed condition of the faculties from which we are pleased to state he is daily recovering, Mr. Chas. Young received a letter on Monday morning from his father who is now in Denver, he was kind enough to show us this letter from which we make the following extracts. "We have just come from the hospital where Frank has a good large room. He goes where he wishes to in th house and next week he can go in the yard. It would do your heart good to see how he has im proved since I came. Th6 doctor lets me see him whenever I go out there. We will be home the first of next week and if I do not miss my guess Frank will be able to come home in a few weeks, we stay only a short time with Frank but his ey is getting clear and strong and he is much better. He talks all clear only he is weak and must nave rest. Everything looks as if he would be all right without doubt." Signed P. J. Young. The above news will be gladly received by all of Frank's friends and dispense with the rumor that his mind is permanently injured by the accident. Liter— Mr. and Mrs F. Young returned from Denver yesterday and re port the fa~ts of Frank's condition sub stantially as given above. They look much worn by the anxiety of their son's illness but seem confident that he is on the road to speedy recovery and that he will be able return to Denison in a few weeks. .. .. CABINET GOWNS.

The bodice was cut with a long point front and at the shoulders was elaborately trimmed with duchess lace, the same lace making a long, slender fan amounted upon mother of pearl which she carried.

Oity Clerk. 8-4t IN MEMORIUM We publish from the Traer Star Clipper the following extract concerning the life of Mr. Marcus Kahler, an account of whose death was published in our last issue. Mr. Kahler was well known here as are all the members of his family and they have the sympathy of all.t'v'f' The Star Clipper says: J- Marcus Kahler has been one of the familiar figures in Traer's better popula tion for over a quarter of a century. He came here from Waterloo in 1877 to take a place in Brookt & Moore's bank. He was a most valued member of the bank force for eleven years, during which time be accumulated sufficient to embark in business, and in company with Orin Hartshorn he engaged in the lumber and coal trade. Mr. H. was succeeded by Asa Ames, and soon after by Lyman Wood, who for ten years or more has been a joint partner with Mr. Kahler Deceased was born in Scheswig, Holstein, Germany, over sixty-one years ago His father was a government official, having in charge important forestry work. Mar cus was well educated and was a graduate in architecture also He served a year in the German army and came to America in 1869, locating first in Waterloo, residing there until coming to Traer. Mr Kahler leaves a wife and six chil dren to mourn his passing, who because of the strong family ties that bound them together are crushed by the weight of sorrow which only the death of loved ones can bring One son, Hugo, is study ing medicine in Chicago another, Waldo, is a graduate in law school and is associat ed with his uncle, C. F. Kuehnle, cf Den ison, Iowa Herbert, a ycung son. is at home, as are also the daughters, Ger-1 trude, Zena'de and Elsie. The latter is a teacher in the Traer public schools. It is a model family. Were nothing else con sidered save the rearing of such a group the life work of Mr."Kahler wonid hn a success to a degree to whi-h few men ev attain. What legacy is richer than a fam ily of dutiful and reputable children who honor their father and mother? One brotherdied in Traer in the early days of the town. Two sisters in Germany com prise the living members of the family of his parents Mr Kahler was a member of the Knights of Pythias, Iowa Legion of Hon or,' Northwestern Lumberman's ass cia tion and the Iowa association He has always been prominent in every interest for the good of society and town. For many years he ssrved on the school board and gave the work careful and conscien tious effort He was also a member of the congregation .1 church Of tne many men who, in the past thirty years ive engaged in business in Traer and have been removed by the cruel hand of de.ith. we do not recall one whose life work will in S3 many respects measure to the standard held by VI ar- cus Kahler. He was a strictly honest man. His keen sense of honor was ap parent to every man that ever dealt with him. He possessed a larg-i heart. He was broad-roinded. He was on the right side. His encouragement and good cheer have banished many a cloud. Whether in business circles, society or church he could meet his duty manfully, gracefully and successfully He was one of the most liberal men in Traer, not only in his family, but in every publ movement. 1 he demise of njea with such noble im pulses, such breadth of thought and action, is a public ilamity Traer mourns is shs has not done in many years. Mrs. Anna Barper of Stratham, New Hamshire is the guest of her cousin, Mrs. Chas Heavirland this week. PARSIFAL.
