Lemuel R. Bolter, age G7 years. The deceased was born in Rich land county, Ohio, July 27th, 1831, camo to Harrison county, Iown, in 1863, settling on a farm nenr Jedo. and soou beyan to take an active part in the great events then stirring the couutry being a democrat, his pre eminent ability soon attracted public attention, and his services were called for to represent Harrison county in the state legislature, and in the ses sion of 1865 he took his seat in that body, serving during the lltb, lfth, 16th, 19t.li and 20th General Assemblies. Jo this body he soon becamo the acknowledged leader of his party. In 187(5 he was the Democratic candidate for congress in the Eighth Congressional Dis trict, against Col. W. F. Sapp, of Council Bluffs. Runniug ahead of his party ticket, but being de feated as the district was nomin ally about 5000 Republican. He was elected to the State Senate aud served iu that capacity during the 2lBt, 22nd, 23d and 24t,h Ses sions, being at -the time of his death Senator from this Senatorial District. He leaves two sons, Charles R. and Carroll A. and one daughter, Florence M., wife of Dr. J. C. Wood, of Logan. He was a mem ber of the law firm of L. B. Bolter A Sons, one of the strongest law firms in the west. The deceased has been a busy man all his life, always in the front ranks of every party or busi ness in which he engaged, loved by his party, respected by his neighbors, and distinguished citi zen, As a politician he was bold, aggressive and eloquent, honest in LIIB convictions, faultless in de fense and persevering in his argu ments, and his death leaves a va cancy in the community that will be hard to fill. His keen fore sight iu matters before him, with an iron constitution and indomi table will, ho stood a giant in in tellect before his country, and leaves a name that will fill a bright page in his country's his tory. He had been in rather deli cate health for some time, in fact ever since the death of his wife, to whom he was devotedly attach ed, but his death was a surprise as he was on the streets of Logan until Saturday evening laBt, but at 8:45 last evening the dread messenger called and a great statesman, profund lawyer, a loyal friend aud honored citizen went forth to that oelestial land from whicn no traveler returns, and the people of Harrison county are in sorrow. This death only brings to our mind the solemn fact that all, both great and small, must at last bow to the inevitable and lay down the work of life to appear before the Great Judge, who does all things well. The funeral will be conducted from his late home Wednesday at 2 p. m. It is expected that Sen ator Healy.of Fort Dodge,a strong personal friend, will deliver the funeral address, and then Senator Lemuel R. Bolter will be laid to reBt.

"I recall now with horror," says Mail Carrier iiurnett Mann, of Levanna, O, "my three years of suffering from kid ney trouble. 1 was hardly ever free from dull aches or acute pains in my back, l'o stoop or lift mail sacks made me groan.

D. J. ADLUM, P. M. Crop Bulletin for Week End ing April 29,1901. DES MOINEH, IOWA—The week brought ideal conditions for pro gress in farm work, and for the growth of vegetation. The tem perature was above the normal,the average daily excess ranging from two to eight degrees. Thero was but little more than a trace of rainfall during the working days of tho week, and Saturday even ing light showers were reported in variO^ localities in the western and nortirvvestern counties. While there is abundant moisture in the soil for present needs, a moderate amount of rainfall would be bene ficial to preveut an encrusted Bur face and to promote germination of seeds aud plants. Reports show that small grain is coming up fairly well, with but little complaint of defective seed. Excellent progress has been made in plowing sod and preparing fall plowed fields for corn. A begin uing has been made in planting corn in the extreme southern counties and with a continuance of warm weather planters will be started in all districts very near the first of May. Grass is start ing fairly well, and pastures will be in condition to support stock about as early as usual. Foliage has made rapid growth, and fruit trees are coming into bloom with fine prospects. Either run a town with vim or just sell out and leave it. Men who are all the time trying to get out of a town will never build up the town or their own business. One of the two things must be done—run the town down for all its worth, get ap steam and keep it up, or quit the whole thing and slide out and let nature take her course. Do you want trade? Bid for it. Do you want a prosperous town where people can come who are disposed to make homes? Then do away with personal feel ing, bury from sight all hpite work work no more for a few in dividuals, all work together for a mutual benefit. Wake up, rub your eyes, roll np your sleeyes and go to work. Don't work with fear and trembling, but take it for 1 granted that blood will tell. Leqve results to themselves borrow PO trouble, but all unite to make M10 biggest kind of A city.—JSjc. Harrison County Organs of the G. O. P. Will Now Please Speak Out. The work of unloading the rail road ties at the F. E. & M. V. company's supply yards in this!roached, city is retarded by the inability of the dompany to secure a sufficient force of men, although the com pany is offering $1.40 per day. Last year tho company received and stored at their supply yards in this city several hundred thou sand railroad tieB. Since that time the supply haB been drawn upou quite frequently in keeping up the road bed, construction of side tracks, etc., and now almost every freight and stock car from east is loaded to its fullest capa city with railroad ties consigned to tho F. E. company at Missouri Valley. The first of the latest consign ment arrived here last week and since that time there has been a busy scene of activity at the sup ply yards here. It is said the company will unload at least 500 car load of tieB here during the] summer. Old Soldier's Experience. Austin, a civil war veteran, of Winchester, Ind, writes: "My wife was sick along time in spite of (food doctor's treatment., but was wholly cured by l)r King's New Life Pills, which worked wonders for her health They alwavs do. Try them. Only 25 cents at filliott and Harvey's drug store. m31 A correspondent of the Marsh alltown Times-Republican, writ ing from Des Moines, says: "Some fresh information regarding the plaos of the Great Western for extensions this year has reached Des Moines through one of the officials of the road who has just returned from St. Paul, where he has beeu in consultation with the head officers. He suggests that it is probably that the line to Sioux City will veer southward from Fort Dodge and parallel the Illinois Central to the south, strik ing Jolly, Sac City and Anthon. Frotn Anthou, iu Woodbury Co., the line to Bioux City would go through a rough couutry. The Omaha route may go even farther south and hit Jefferson and Har lin. The line fiom Hampton to the Mason City & Fort Dodgo connection will strike either at Clarion or Belmond, but it has not been determined which. Then there is likely to be a cut off from the Hampton line to Olewein to make a still shorter route to Chi cago. The surveyors on the Sioux •City extension will bo in the coun try in a month and at least a part of that line will constructed this year, but the Omaha extension will not be built until next year." Retail Grocery Combine. IDA GIIOVE, la., April 2ti.—The groc ery business of Ida Grove will be all conducted under one management in future. The four largest grocery stocks of the town have been consoli dated and a company has been formed known as the Iowa Mercantile com which will be incorporated with a capital stock of $50,000. Since the suicide of Charles R. Black man last week it has been a question of what to do with his large grocery stock which he mortgaged to liaxter, Heed & Co. the evening before he took hiR life. It was finally decided for all of the grocers to combine, it being estimated they could save 84,000 in operating ex penses in a year and they could buy cheaper. The officers of the new com pany are J. H. Strough, president W. H. liassett, vice president J. Gemmell, secretary, and J. W. Reed, treasurer. The warmest day of the season was recorded yesterday when the mercury bounded up to the 91 mark. It was uncomfortably warm all day and the wind hurled dust, sand and grit through the air, which served to paake the day very disagreeable. Many peor pie cast longing glances at tbe sum. mer clothes which have hung in the closet all winter aud the ice cream soda fountains did a thriving business all day. It remained quite warm far into the night and at o'clock last night the thermometer registered 81. About 10 o'clock it became very comfortable and flavored very much of a cool sumr mer evening, Tbe lowest temperature during the day was 55. The highest temperature recorded in the state of Iowa for the month of April last year was 89, or two degrees below the high, est temperature yesterday.—Nonpareil April 20. It was the cQBtom of Mrs. Ma rietta Doe Hay, who died a jew days ago in Tarrytown, N.Y., to keep her jewels and large sums of money in a small bag, which she Used to hang on the limb of a tree outside her window at night. She feared burglars, and wanted to be able truthftlly to tell a robber that she had no money in the house. Frequently the bag contained thousands of dollars. A queer EogliBh law, called the "tippling act of 1751," provides that an innkeeper cannot recover for debts for liquor amounting to more than $5. The son of an em inent English throat specialist lately ran up a bill of $250 at an English public-house, aud based a refusal to pay upon the validity of this act. As the statute was still on tho books the judge was oblig ed to acknowledge its force. Notice Of STRAYED.

Silas A Iveeler has been appointed agent and attorney for the sale of the lake beds of Wright county at a-com mission of ten per cent. That seems like a pretty liberal fee, but if, as we understand, he has to give a title from the county to the purchaser, he will, in all probability, earn his money, if, in deed there is any commission to come out of it.

There are some men who think that when they pay their taxes, or their bmrd, or their rent, they have dis charged their whole duty to tho com munity- They seem to bo convinced that the city is an institution estab lished for the purpose of relieving them from all obligations to their fel lows upon payment of a certain specific sum which may take the form of taxes, rent or board. Politically they maintain an attitude of aversion lo paternalism, but as a matter of prac tice tlit^y iusist that when they were adopted into the community they were given a guarantee that all trouble would bii taken off their hauds. They howl about the condition of the streets they protest because the usual ills of municipal life are not cured by some iudeliuiie process of which they know nothinct and care nothing. Don't they pay their portion of the public burden and why sboulii they be bothered? It is none of their business, Their busir ness is to kick about the quality of the gruel and demand more. YVhat such men need is to have some sense knocked into them. The body politic is not an orphan asylum. The city is not clamoring for healthy male infants for adoption. What it wants and what every man in tho community should should uive it., is the assistanoe of the members of the corporation— not such assistance as is given when a man goes to the polls and there voles for some fellow who has been slated for office by some boss, but intelligent advice and a striving tor hetterment-. There are many things that the indi vidual^ can do which the city cannot do. For instance you can clean np your back yard and relieve the airs of spring of the burden of noxious odors and disease breeding germs with which they will be laden if you don't do something.—Ex.
