Dear Readers of The Reporter—I am an old lady from Iowa, who came here about eleven years ago, and. I want a little apace in your paper. We live five miles from the town of Cot tonwood) a railroad town on the Northwestern Ry. This is the place to live, in a sunshine state. We can raise anything we want to. We get 29 cents for our butter, and last winter during the holidays eggs were $1.00 per dozen. I had thirty-six dozen packed. Say, that was rich. I read The Reporter which comes to the Gardner girls, who formerly lived at Leon. I notice there are so" many Decatur county people coming out to this state, but they never say what part. But if any'of our oldor young friends pass Cottonwood, let us know, and "dad" as he is called here, will drive up for you, and you can make us a visit. We always have something to eat and a little to spare but'all the same we don't get found ered like my big cousin, Charley Hatfield, did. We don't call it founder here, it is loco, but I hope he didn't lose his toe nails. That looks pretty bad, Charles. One drawback here is we don't have many churches. Just two in our town, Con gregational and Catholic. Our town is only three years old next August. Of course several parties have proved up, sold eut and gone back to their wife's people, but there are new ones coming all the time, and that makes it nice: I like this country very much and would not like to go back to Iowa to live. Not that I don't like it there and the people, but this country I like better. We have our orchards of all kinds of trees and an abundance of strawberries. We had lovely weather in March and April and are having plenty of rain at present. The small grain looks fine now and the gardens are nice. There has not been much corn planted yet but thank fortune we don't have to have our seed corn shipped in as every man has his own. We raise good corn here. Our boys all have land here, those that are old enough, just one to file yet, and he will be old enough to file in seven months. I have 150 young chickens. Took off 22 on Washington's birthday. Can any of you beat that? Well, I will close hoping this letter will be the means of some of my old friends back there writing to me, including two of my brothers," I remain your old friend. Mrs. J. W. Conquest, Box 7 5. Cottonwood, S. D. The best meal served in Leon is at the Park hotel under the new management. Cheap Lands. \Ve own some land in Minnesota that w« have just thrown on the mar ket we have a nice improved 160 with good buildings at $30 per acre one 320 acre tract with extra fine buildings at $35 per acre also a'few improved 80 acre farms.
