It will be remem bered that some time ago a letter ad dressed to John Slechta at Vail was I received by the Slechtas. This letter was written by the same Mile. Pauquet, and she gave dates on which she and John had been together, and these dates v/ere after the date he was reported as killed. The Slechtas at Vail immedla ately wrote to Mile. Pauquet for fur ther information regarding the son, and nqw corned the following letter Written In' French, and translated by Rev. Fath er Harty, of Vail.

Sixty years ago some shrewd specu lators laid out a town in the northern part of Poweshiek county and called it Ottwa City. The place never got any further than the platting on paper but it was heralded in Ne\v England as the coming city of the west. Lots were sold at high prices for that day, but the future city was purely in the mind of its promoters and never got any fur ther. In the settlement of estates in the east it often happens that a part of the nssets is a deed to a lot in Otta wa City and the auditor of Poweshiek county on various occasions has been asked by eastern attorneys and admin istrators as to the value of the invest ment. When it was determined to re move the state capital from Iowa City to a more central location, away back in 1847, a committee selected a place in the western part of Jasper county, six miles northwest of Tool's Point and four miles from where Prairie City now stands. The future capital of the state was named Monroe City, but a member of the locating committee named Hogg, a resident of Henry county, told some of his Quaker friends in strict viola tion of instructions and a rush was made to purchase lots in the newly se lected state capital. This upset the plan and the report of the committee was rejected. Tool's Point was afterwards changed to Monroe and Iowa's futfire capital was located at Des Moines at the junction of the Des Moines and Raccoon rivers. A granite monument now marks the place where the old fort stood. And, like the auditor of Powe shiek county, that same official in Jes-j per county occasionally receives inquir-' ieB regarding the value of lots in Mon roe City. One of the largest growers of gold fish in America is E. K. Bruce, near Thornburg, in Keokuk'county. He has 11 ponds containing over 200,000 fish.

Mr. Bruce finds it a watchful matter in keeping enemies of his pets from steal ing his fish. The bird known as the Kingfisher is one of the worst pests in summer. All kinds of fish loving birds are attracted to the pords. Mr. Bruce keeps his eyes open for muskrats, which are very destructive. Even wild and tame geese are attracted to the ponds.
