The sentiment was freely expressed, that this year a general "reaching out" enlarging the district covered last year must be the motto, awakening new terri tory that they may participate with the Club. In (Joion there is strength and the more Union we can com maud the better the roads, for eve rybody. Locally, street lamps, ce ment gutters on the sides of the main business blocks, and the abatement of that eye sore row of hitching posts along the north aide of the park was discussed. Not that we want less hitching posts, but they that are there taken off the main street and set on a side street before a frigfatful.accident happens between autoe and buggies. Some life will be blotted out if these con ditions are continued. One thing the club must expect to do. To ei ther have the ten miles an hour in the city limits abated, or when they are reported as exceeding the limit walk up to the Mayor's desk and pay the penalty. This should be observed by everyone driving vehi cles before some one is injured or killed. The old officers were re-elec ted: Dr, Newloh, Pres Ed Dela hoyde, Treas Dr. Oldaker, Sec'y and John I.

The country is quite level here, but generally rolling enough to drain the surface water off. We see from the looks of the farms here that people must have been quite prosperous in the past. The buildings are large and very modern built. P- We will always remember Exira as our old home.

A short time ago a gentleman resid ing in Philadelphia, Penn. came to Audubon in search of relatives of whom he had never seen and only knew their names to be Isaac and Mary, the following being tbe circum stances. Years ago his father long Bince dead received a letter mailed at "Hamlin's Grove" from bis sister and signed "Mary" and in the letter in referring to her husband she called him Isaac and that was all. The letter was laid away in some secure place and when the mother was on her death-bed sbe told her son of tbe letter and of the slight chaDce there was of there ever being found and identified. Time pass ed and as he had no relatives living in the east, tbe longing came to him to come west and institute a search, so taking the letter on which the County and post mark were still visible he came to Audubon and at a hotel be gan his inquiries. The host could not enlighten him but we are informed re ferred him to one of the oldest settlers, Chas. H.

NEW TRAIN SERVICE On This Branch Making Six Trains Eyery Day Except Sundays. *y Everybody Pleased-- -t If we knew the fellow or fellows that induced the C. R. I. & P.

The Atlantic Northern and South ern only lacks about $2000 to free it from tbedanger of pasBiog into tbe hands of a receiver. The south end only looks that amount of paying up their part, the north having met their portion some time since. What a strain will be off the minds ot the offi cers when the danger from slow sub scription and indifferent feeling to ward the road will be past.

The Affliction Is Terrible To Contemplate. Mr. Henry Tibbea, one of the so lid farmers of .towaabip, fearing that an annoying luntp on one of his lips ,had th4 tappeairtfice of cancer, submitted to thisdkkillful treatment of Dr. Becker of the loWa City hospital, assisted by Dr.-Jacob aen of Exira and had tbe aubstance removed. ... It takes much confidence in the operator to be cut into, in an opera tion but the pain in a case of this kind iB aa nothing compared to tbe torture of being consumed by a living cancer. We witneaaed this, once in Audubon County, and tbe tbe pen is too weak to describe the agony of that poor sufferer. If you think you are possessed of a can cer, by all means have it removed at the date of its existence. OH DEATH Where Is Thy Victory, Oh., Grave Where Is Thy Sting.
