The Catholic cemetery, south of town, was receiving some valuable at tention the first of the week. The walks and drives were being cared for and the graves therein put in better shape. This is very commendable in them, as no place is more deserving of care and attention than this place of burial. Here are precious memories buried beneath the sod, the forms once dear to all, while there the spirits gone seem to return to hover over all who walk therein. The schools close this, \*\eek. The ties that bound teachers and pupils will be broken. They have been close and the parting causes pain. Next assembly brings new relations and new work and new surroundings. The past has been pleasant and profitable. They have all done well. The school has prospered and year by year the stand ard raises higher. We might mention the work of each individual teacher but their merits and works are too well known to need comment. Their work next year will be but a continu ation of this and all feel sure the school is in good hands. Jludubon news. (Ue have moved Audubon, Iowa THOS. H, BOYLAN, LAWYER.

The ball game, last Saturday on the fairgrounds, between Audubon and Manning, was quite interesting but re sulted in the defeat of the home team, much to the regret of the backers of boys, though it was impossible to be otherwise.

The contestants in the ring was local talent but the performance did not in dicate that they were amateurs. The Columbian Club met, last week, and decided that Audubon should cele brate. They have seen other towns not forget the small boy with his bun dle of fire crackers popping into aflame that which is within him that creates love of home and love of country and love of the flag. They have heard the roar of the cannon firecracker that boomed as nothing else could those insoluble ties that makes the Ameri can soldier the first to scale all walls and breastworks and leave him to guard the imperial palace of China. There is no reason why Audubon should not celebrate. Her people have money, patriotism and energy. There is no reason why they should be com pelled to go to other towns. But it takes energy and money to make it a success. The ladies are willing to give the energy and the others will give the money. We trust their scheme will meet with the approval of the business men, who will help them iu every way possible.
