Old Time Blizzard Denison En
joys Good Weather.
Sunday Blizzard Worst of the Season
In Many Parts of State. Traffic
Inrerfered With.
Sunday afternoon and evening a
regular old time blizzard raged over
Iowa and Nebraska, causing great in
convenience to traffic of all kinds. At
Des Moines eleven inches of snow was
reported and street car traffic was at
a stand still. Council Bluffs fared ev
en worse, the temperature descended
SO degrees in an hour. The storm al
so affected the wire connections be
tween Des Moines and Omaha. Bur
lington, at the other extremity of the
state, reported the worst blizzard of
the winter. Eastern Iowa has not
suffered as the other parts of the
state from the excessive snowfall.
Dubuque, Clinton and Sioux City re
ported winter temperatures again, but
a lack of snow. Cedar Rapids report
ed heavy fall of snow.
The storm originated in Texas and
is making a path from the Panhandle
to the great lakes.
The storm did not reach Denison or
Crawford County, the temperature was
somewhat lower during Sunday even
ing, freezing the ground so that team
ing and heavy hauling was interfer
red with to some extent. Since Sun
day the weather has been ideal with a
tendency to March winds.
Mrs. Phoebe Isbell is Surprised by a
Party of Friends on Occasion
of Her 83d Birthday.
Monday last was the 83d birthday
©t Mrs. Phoebe Isbell, who resides on
East Walmit street with her daughter,
Mrs. Florence Hope. Old friends of
the family arranged for a surprise
party for her that day. As many read
ers will jremember, the Isbell family
was one of the pioneers of Jackson
township. The husband, James Is
bell, was a man of strong personal
ity,, a leader in his community. The
wife in her daily walk won a warm
'spot in the hearts of all who knew
"her and in time "Aunt Phoebe" be
came looked upon as the embodiment
of loving kindness. It is not strange,
therefore, that on Monday the old
ifriends in Jackson were down to re
:smeirrter her birthday. Among these
""were: George Gunn and wife, F. J.
"Gunn and wife, Frank Weed and wife,
Mrs. George and Mrs. Henry Maynard,
Mrs. Will Maynard and Mrs. Slechta.
"LThey brought their dinners and the
party was "simply grand," as one of
the group told of it. Mrs. Isbell is
the mother of Mrs. John Baker, and
is a woman highly respected by all.

Chief Surgeon of Hospital at the
Mouth of the Congo River
Visits in Denison.
There was a man in Denison last
Tuesday evening whose fame as a
physician and surgeon is extended far
in the country of the South Congo, on
the west coast of Africa. He came
with little herald, on short notice, and
spoke on mission work in the dark
continent. Over twenty years ago
Dr. Franklin P. Lynch, a young man
with a brilliant future as a rising sur
geon in Connecticut, possed of excep
tional education, decided to make his
life work that of a medical mission
ary. He was assigned to the Congo,
and went there to learn the language
and try to uplift a people devoid of
honesty and morality. He is now at
the head of the great hospital at
Kukimvika, which is at the mouth of
the Congo river. The hospital has
thirty beds, but often sixty patients
needing help. As a sample of what
must be done on the foreign field, the
Baptist society allows $250 a year for
the support of this hospital and Dr.
Lynch not over $750, one-fourth of
which must be paid out for customs
duties. It has been by curing their
diseases that the natives are won to
the missionaries and willing to send
their children to the schools and hear
the bible religion. Dr. Lynch is a
mah of high culture, well up in his
profession, capable to earn large fees
in America, but willing to devote his
life for the primitive people of the
Congo. His talk at the Baptist
church was uplifting and instructive.

Mr. and Mrs. Fritz Lehfeldt Married
Fifty Years Last Monday, Feb
ruary 26th.
Elegant Six-O'Clock Dinner Served at
Home of Hon. Rudolph Lehlfeldt
in Honor of Occasion.
On Monday, February 26th, Mr. and
Mrs. Fritz Lehfeldt were married just
fifty years, and the occasion was cele
brated by inviting a number of friends
to their home on West Broadway. At
6 o'clock the company, numbering
twenty-five partook of an elegant din
ner, served at the home of Mr. and
Mrs. It. Lehfeldt, a brother, and at
whose home the evening was spent.
A most enjoyable time was held and
Mr. and Mrs. Lehfeldt were the recip
ients of many presents and words of
For the past fifteen years this
worthy couple has lived in Denison,
where they have enjoyed the fruits
of hard labor earlier in life. Prior to
moving here they resided in Otter
Creek township, where Mr. Lehfeldt
owns a very fine farm, and where an
adopted daughter, Mrs. Nick Boysen,
now resides. Mr. Lehfeldt is 83 years
of age and Mrs. Lehfeldt is 70 years.
The Review joins many friends in
wishing this worthy couple many more
years of joy and happiness together.
After Fifteen -Years' Cotinuous Man
agement, B. J. Sibbert Resigns
As Manager of Opera House.
Mr. B. J. Sibbert has tendered his
resignation as manager of the Ger
mania opera house, to take effect on
March 1st. Mr. Sibbert has been in
continuous management of Denison
amusement house for the past 15
years, and only resigns at this time
because of lack of time to give the
house the attention necessary. With
his large hardware, implement and
automobile business to look after, to
say nothing of his extensive land hold
ings, his time is entirely taken up.
Mr. Sibbert has been a most accommo
dating manager, and has given the
public the best of entertainment at
his command. The condition of the
opera house lias been a great draw
back to him, but it was a condition
over which Mr. Sibbert had
trol. Denison is entitled to the best
of entertainments traveling, but with
this poor facitility for taking care of
them it is not strange that Denison
nas been passed. A new manager will
undoubtedly be chosen at the first
meeting of tlie German Verein.

Success—30 Head of Chester

.. Buyers From a Distance Attracted
to Denison and Make Good Pur
chases of Blooded Stock.
The farmers and stock breeders of
Crawford county are beginning to real
ize more and more the advisability of
raising and breeding thoroughbred
stock. The sales of blooded stock
this season has proven this statement,
as a majority of the stock offered at
the sales held has been purchased by
home men.
John F. Hoist, Jr. held his first an
nual sale of registered Chester White
brood sows on Tuesday afternoon at
the Laub barn in this city.
From every standpoint the sale was
a success. It drew a large crowd of
buyers from Denison and vicinity and
others from a distance. Mr. Hoist has
long been building up a herd of Ches
ter White hogs and has spent a great
deal of money in bringing his herd to
the front. The sale commenced
promptly at 1:30 when the thirty head
were offered for sale to the highest
Although the sale did not bring as
high prices as some that have been
held this winter, it was the opinion of
all that the animals sold well. The
sale was topped by Marie 45544, which
was sold to Mr. J. Dunbar, of Jeffer
son, for $72.00. The total amount
paid for the thirty head was $1,154,54!,
or an average of $38.49 per head. Mr.
Hoist was well pleased with the sale
and stated after the sale that it was
his intention to hold a similar sale
next February.
