o'clock. He was up town the previ
ous day apparently in good health,
hut Sunday morning complained of
not feeling well, and laid around the
house. In the evening his parents
wanted to get him something to eat,
and he finally said he would like to
have a dish of cherries, so Mr. and
Mrs. Allen went to the home of El
mer Harris nearby where they kept
their fruit in the cellar and got a
can, being gone from the house but
a few minutes, and when they re
turned Sam was gasping for breath

ents in 1892, and learned the tin
ner's trade in the store of Farquhar

ber of years. He was a quiet, unas
suming young man who had many
friends to mourn his untimely death.
Besides his parents he is survived
by two sisters, Mrs. Vivian Richard
son, of Buckingham, Virginia, and
Mrs. Iona Drury, of Santiago, Cali
Funeral services were held from

workmen who have remodeled and
refitted the building throughout,
every room being newly painted and
papered and many improvements in
the arrangement of the hotel being
made. An entire new outfit of fur

Geo. B. Cooper, of Davis City, who
have a splendid reputation as first
class hotel people are in charge. The

Farmer's Institute.
The heavy snow of Tuesday which
blockaded the railroads, has inter

the farmers can come in Thursday.
Some One has Started the Report
That We Have Traded off our
Stock and will Leave Leon,
but We are Here to Stay,
and the Report is Er
When we came up town today a
report was spread around town that
we had traded off our stock of mer
chandise and were going to leave
Leon, and in justice to ourselves and
many patrons we feel it necessary
to publish this statement in the way
of an announcemnt that we have no
intention of trading or never had.
In fact, we would be very foolish to
think of such a thing when we are
enjoying one of the largest business
of any firm our size in the .state of
Iowa. We give credence to such a
report only that some knockers who
would rather see us out of Leon than
in it, started this report with the
hope of doing us an injury. We are
live ones and expect to have in op
eration by Jan. 20th, another store
in another town. Who is -it that
would not grow if they could? Just
so with us. Our business has been so
satisfactory, and as we have a large
stock on" hand we are therefore open
ing up another store, but at just
which town we have not decided on.
Another thing we want to say is that
we have a long time lease on our
building in Leon, and the Bradley
Wasson Merc. Co. will continue here
for years, as it has in the past, giv
ing the people good merchandise at
low prices and stand ready to assist
and aid in every way every enter
prise that is due Leon and Leon citi
zens, and we do not thank Mr.
Knocker at all who has tried to do
us an injury Thanking you for past
favors and assuring you that we are
here to stay, and will have in Leon
one of the most modern stores in
this state, we are Respectfully,
Bradley-Wasson Merc. Co.

Change in Clothing Firm.
Prof. J. A. Mcintosh, of Weldon,
has purchased the big stock of cloth
ing in this city owned by the Leon
Clothing Co., and took possession of
the store on Monday. In the deal
he traded his 150 acre farm in Ham
ilton township to Shephard & Haw
kins, of Red Oak, who owned the
store. Prof. Mcintosh is no stranger
to the people of Leon and Decatur
county, where he has resided all his
life. He has resigned his position as
principal of the Weldon schools and
will move his family here in a few
days, and will occupy his residence
on north Main strlet. Mr. A. J. Lup
pold, former manager of the store,
will remain with him until Feb. istr
when he goes to Maryville, Mo., to
take charge of a new clothing store
which Shephard &• Hawkins will open
in that city, and James Alexander
will remain with the new proprietor
as salesman, so that the buiness will
run along without change. Since
they located in Leon last spring the
Leon Clothing Co. have done a splen
did business, bringing a new stock
of high grade clothing to this city,
and Mr. Mcintosh will endeavor to
maintain the splendid reputation
which this store has enjoyed. He
has an extensive acquaintance over
Decatur county and will be glad to
have his friends call at his store.

Mr. Ernest Goodman and Miss Mabel

young people wish them every happi
ness. Mr. and Mrs. Goodman will
locate on a farm in Wyoming.

Interesting Items of Local Interest
Picked Up by The Reporter
During the Present Week.
We regret very much that Ben
Watchbaugh, our auctioneer, has de
cided to move to Leon in the near
future, but owing to his being un
able to make satisfactory arrange
ments for residence property, and
the sale territory being limited, he
has thought best to move to the coun
ty seat, but will pay special atten
tion to this territory when farmers
want sales cried. Ben is a good auc
tioneer and has the reputation of
getting high prices, and we predict
that it will be no trouble for him to
hold the business of this section.—

That Dear Old Iowa Climate.
California's climate ain't so much,
for our Ipwa brands just beatfc the
Dutch. One day the marrow in your
bones is froze and then it turns
around and snows, then it clears
away and the sun comes out and the
snow banks all go up the spout. The
water fills every dinky ditch and the
mud sticks closer than the seven
year itch. The geezer gets out his
old straw hat, but he couldn't imag
ine where he's at, for by the time he
gets a boat he's got to hustle fbr his
overcoat. The mercury drops and it
begins to rain and the rain drops
turns to snow again the barometer
drops away down (low, and the north
ern blizzard begins to blow. He calls
the weather man a liar and huddles
closer to a roaring fire. Of the
western climate the poets sing, but
the Iowa is the real thing."
