infamy, blood and tyranny.”

Oil Inspectors Named,
Factory For Oskaloosa.
The Mitch Wilson Tract Pur
chased (or the Site and the
Deal is Closed.
- IOWA.
135,000 Paid Up Capital,
Factory Thirty by Ninety feet
to Employ One Hnndred
Laborers.
The duck goods factory has assumed
material form and the deal has been
closed for the purchase of the Mitch
Wilson traot south of the city. The
transaction was brought about by Mr.
I. C. Hanna, of Monmouth, lIL, agent
for W. P. Clearer, I Qoinly, W. H. Find
ley, P. L. Shenek, all of Illinois.
The land Is transferred for a consid
eration of 8 10,500. It contains 3? acres
and will be platted into 179 lots. If the
gentlemen of the company can sell one
huodred of these lots to Oskaloosa
parties they will erect a factory proba
bly 30 by 90 feet, two stories, of brick,
and inrest 835,000 paid up capital. They
ask no bonus and no stock subscription.
They will employ 75 to 100 hands,and if
the oompany fails to operate the factory
for a term of three years, the factory
building Is to revert to the lot owners.
The land is to be platted immediately
and will be known as Hanna’s subdi
vision of part of ne, ne, 24 75.10.
If the citizens do not wish to buy
sufficient land to Insure the factory the
company feels certain that it can dis
pose of the land in other ways. Three
acres of the land Is now occupied by
Messrs. Hawkins and Bernard, who
have built homes on the lots.
The factory will manufacture duck
goods, shtr»e, pants and the like, and a
ready market awaits the production.
The High School Building;.
Having been asked by so many what
reasons the board of directors have for
asking for a high school building, I
shall attempt to give some of my own
reasons which are concurred in by the
board of education unanimously, One
of the principal reasons Is the crowded
condition of onr public schools In this
city.
Oekaloosa schools have now an aver
age of 6 pupils per teacher more than
Boone, or 270 pnpils; also the same
number in excess of Marshalltown; 4
pupils per teacher or 180 more than eith
er Waterloo, Council Bluffs or Cedar
Rapids; 3 more, or 135 pupils In excess
of Sioux City,Davenport or Des Moines.
This situation alone shows the ab
solute necessity of 4 to 6 rooms more to
simply relieve this crowded condition
as compared with our neighboring
cities; to be added to this Is our yearly
average increase of 120 to 135, or a total
of from 250 to 300 pupils more than there
are actual school facilities for. It has
been suggested that the board rent
rooms and not build for another year.
This would not be a good policy, as the
extra expense of furnishing rooms,
damage to furniture, and room rent
wo aid pay the interest on bonds; be
sides the prospect of purchasing a school
site at a reasonable price suitable for a
high school building will never be
better than now.
The low price of building material
and labor will not likely occur again in
years to come. Bonds can be floated at
par on a rata of 4to 5 per cent. The
Idea that a sufficient and substantial
building cannot be built for 925,000 as
urged by some, Is simply made through
lack of Investigation. Muscatine has
just contracted for an elegant 15 room
high school building, complete without
heating or seating for 925,000; Sheldon
has a most elegant bnilding of 14 rooms
completed at a cost of 930,000; Winter
set, one of 13 rooms at a cost of 925,000;
so that the argument that the amount
is inadequate Is but an excuse for op
position to the school.
The Fifth ward building was built for
a graded school, and every room In the
building is needed for ward purposes
for the grades in that ward, and It Is a
great Injustice to this ward that they
should be compelled to send their pupils
to First, Second and Fourth wards at a
great inconvenience. A building prop
erly constructed and arranged for the
accommcdition of the high school, 3 to
5 rooms for grades, centrally located
as near the public square as practicable,
would acoommodate the district for
years to come.
School bonds must be sold at par and
not Issued for a longer term than ten
years to be paid at option of ihe die
trlct sooner as desired.
The Idea advanced by a few to send
our high school pupils to the colleges Is
absolutely Illegal, and cannot even be
considered as a plan worthy of any con
sideration.
The last of the old school house bonds,
920,000, has been paid and the district
is out of debt The attack on the bond
ed indebtedness Is made In the wrong
place, It should be made against muni
cipal affairs, and not against the school
management, as the board of education
have so managed their portion of the
affairs that all debts have been paid
just as they were contracted and are to
day absolutely out of debt
I am heartly In favor of the bonds,
even though 1 am In favor of retrench
ment, as far as practicable believing as
I do that it is the only practicable, pos
sible and permanent relief, and believ
ing that it is unwise to go about attack
ing the Issue of bonds on the theory of
economy, and at the same time permit
the expenditure 0f96,000 on street work
alone, go by unnoticed.
There la no disposition on the part of
the board to locate the high school (If
the bonds should carry) otherwise than
the most central location possible and
practicable.

A Good Town.
Washington, March 22, *96.— Editor
Herald:— Some how I bad got the Im
pression that this was something of a
second rate town,and rather of the“back
number’' order; but this being Sunday
1 took quite a stroll around the town,
and was actually surprised to find that
it oompared favorably and was, If any
thing, rather above the average towns
of its size In this state.
The town occupies quite an area and
is quite compact, with no unsightly
vacant spaces of unoccupied ground
and it presents a very neat and orderly
appearanee. The residences are nearly
all of modern style and are in good re
pair with very neat surroundings. The
sidewalks, though of wood, are In good i
repair. The business oenter surrounds
a “rquare” in about the oenter of the
town and all branches me pretty well j
represented. The “square” I am told
was donated,some yean sgo to the conn- <
ty for oourt house purposes, end the ]
fi*st court house was built there; but
when it wss decided to build a new one
it was built on its present location, one
block wee*, on the street on the north
I'de of the*quare. The "squat*' is now
used as a * park.”

Quickly, Painlessly, Without
Danger.
People go along for years suffering
with piles. Then try thls.and that and
the other thing; from carrying a buck
eye to getting treatment from a phy
sician. They obtain temporary relief,
maybe, but they are never quite cured
A little strain in lifting, excessive fa
tigue, a little constipation or a little
diarrhoea and the piles ccme back.
They don’t seem to amount to much,
but they banish sleep and appetite. No
position is comfortably. There is in
tense local pain and that dreadful feel
ing of weight In the perineum.
Maybe in theearly stages some of the
many salves on sale will afford tempor
ary relief. If the case Is of long stand
ing there Is only one speedy and cure
remedy. It Is Pyramid Pile Cure. Even
In light cases it It the safest thing to
use. Other applications may cure and
may not Pyramid Core la always cer

fort at once. It’s prompt nse saves
months of severe suffering. In extreme
cases It will save surgical operations
and their attendant dangers and dis
comforts. It Is better than a knife

Thousands have need it. Thousands
have been cured by It. The cost is trill
‘log compared with what It does. The
price Is 50 cents. Most anybody would
gladly pay ten dollars to be rid of piles

One of the prettiest and most novel par
ties ever given in the city was managed by
a company of young ladies at the opera
honse last evening. It was a sort of leap
year party and the gentlemen were told to

—the more absurd the better. The young

tongue. A canvas had been put down on
the stage for dancing purposes, and with
Edgar Coffin presiding at the piano the
waltz and two-step were soon in order. The
stage had been set to give the greatest pos
sible room. In a Gypsy tent at one side
Mrs. Converse presided as a fortune teller
and dished up the fates of tbe party. Then
a program of specialties was introduced,
mandolin and guitar music being followed
by Hattie Briggsand Anna Paine in a con
versation a la minstrel, concerning merits
and demerits of the gentlemen. Alberta
Converse recited in the same vein. Fred
Esgen and Dick Boyer ended the program
with a glove contest, the fight being award
ed Esgen on a foul. The company was or
dered to seat itself in a circle. Down from
above came an immense apple pie, meas
uring about two feet in diameter, and the
quality was most excellent. The supper
was excellent In every particular. The
menu,served front end last, was as follows:
Tooth-picks Eldam Cheese

when the home waltz wss played. Toe

Cause of The La Grippe.
Now Admitted to be from Derang
ed Digestion.
Careful observation in many cases of
La Grippe extending over several years
have gradually developed the fact that
it is very generally caused from diete
tic errors.
Ia other words, daring the prevalence
of LaGrlppe, persons who suffer from
indigestion or stomach troubles are al
most invariably victims of the epidemic.
This can be readily understood when
yon remember that the germs of any
disease cannot gain a foothold in the
system of a man or woman a hois bless
ed with perfect digestion, health, and
such persons can bid dedance to La
Grippe or to any other prevailing epi
demic.
For this reason physicians have re
cently introduced into their practice the
new preparation known as Stuart's
Dyspepsia Tablets aa an almost certain
preventive of LaGrlppe, as his remedy
by giving perfect digestion and assimi
lation of the food so fortifies the system
against disease that alt danger from
this epidemic is reduced to a minimum.
So popular have Stuart's Dyspepsia
Tablets become that It is claimed witn
in one month after being made known
to the pnbllc one hundred and ninety
three druggists in Detroit, Mich, alone
were selling it and today they pro
nounce it the most satisfactory remedy
they are selling for all forms of stom
ach derangement. *
The price at druggists Is but 50 cents
for full sized package,
It is not a cure aii.but ia recommend
ed as a cure t>r Dyspepsia and stomach
troubles only,

KF.MOKUL—MRS N X. JACKfcOX
On ihe rooming of March 19, 1896, at Oa
lralcosa, lowa, after prolonged suffering,
patiently borne, Mra. M. L Jackson felt
asleep in deatb. Mra Jackton was born
in Morgan county, Illinois, in tie year of
1837 She had three aiaters and two broth
era, —both the brothers, together with her
parents, having passed to thebeycnd. The
elder brother, the lamented T G Phillips,
preceded her by a little less than two years
At the ageof seven she came to Oskaloosa,
lowa,and for fifty years thla was her home.
During this prolonged residence among us
she honored all the condition* of this re
lated life, and so endeared herself to her
family and a large circle cf friends that
she will be mourned—
“As a wife, devoted ;
As a mother, affectionate ;
Aa a friend, ever kind and true
In life she exhibited all the graces of s
Christian; in death, her redeemed spiritre
turned to God who gave it ”
In the year of 1555, November 1, she waa
united in marriage with Dr M. L Jackson,
and for forty years they journeyed together
in this holy and helpful relation. And now,
when the home ties are broken, her chil
dren rise up and call her blessed ; her hus
band also, and he praiseth her.” Five chil
dren were horn unto them, three sons and
two daughters—Harry, who died in Aus
tralia a few years ago, Djvight, livirg
among us, Gertrude (Green), residing in
Fort Dodge, William,residing uiDesMoines,
and Lizzie, at home and with her mother
until the last. In 1858 Mrs. Jackson, to
gether with her husband, united with the
First Presbyterian church of Okaloosa,
and during all there years she has keen a
devoted and honored member. Her many
good deeds and kindly acts of charity, so
unostentatiously performed, will remain a
precious heritage to many, and to her has
come the benediction of Him who has said,
“In as much as ye have done it unto one of
the least of these, my brethren, ye have
done it unto Me.”
For the past few years the intimate
friends of Mrs. Jackson have noticed, with
sadness, the indications of failing health.
Last fall she was advised by her physi
cians to seek the advice and aid of the cel
ebrated specialist, Dr. Sawyer Brown, of
Chicago. And accordingly the Doctor and
Mrs. Jackson and Lizzie went to the city
and she was placed under his care. After
remaining for some time under this special
treatment she returned, not improved in
health. She has since been under the care
of the physicians of our own city; and, by
the advice of one of them, Dr. Gilman, of
Mt Pleasant hospital, was called in con
sultation. His diagnosis and directions
were in accord with those of Dr. Brown
Other physicians were called and all that
medical science and careful nursing could
do was done; but it availed not to arrest
the progress of the fatal disease. The
pitcher seemed to be broken at the foun
tain, and her life ebbed away until she
found relief in the sleep of death. And in
all such conflicts with disease we realize
that medical science, for which we praise
God, can and does do much to alleviate
pain and prolong life, hut cannot destroy
death.
‘‘lt is appointed unto man once to die.”
Our birth makes us mortal, and through
death we become immortal, ascend to
strength and victory, and enter that land
where there is no death, no tears, no pain,
no sorrow, and where the sundered ties of
earth shall be re-united. What great com
fort bereaved friends find in this blessed
hope when their lives are disturbed by
great sorrows, in the loss of beloved ones.
This life does not seem all of life, and the
sweet hope of a greater life to come brings
great happiness to them ; and, though they
may find difficulty in believing in the ab
stract doctrine of immortality, they are
able to believe in immortal ones, and
all their materialism in the caskets of the
beloved dead.
In the early stages of her last sickness
Mrs. Jackson gave the most positive assur
ance that she found great comfort and
strength in the consciousness of the Divine
presence, saying, “This is my comfort.”
But she is gone; and “Lo, He giveth His
baloved sleep.” She will be held in sweet
remembrance by the sorely bereaved hus
band, and her Influence will abide and will
descend as a holy legacy to bless her house
hold and inspire her friends.
The funeral, conducted by Rev. John M
Baugh, took place from her late residence
on High avenue east, at 2 P m , Sunday,
March 22, and was attended by a large con
course of sympathizing friends The beau
tiful and impressive music was r< ndered
by the Presbyterian choir, re-enforced by
Mrs. Chas E Lolland. Messrs. Mitchel
Wilson, Major F. H. Loring, W. W. Eby,
Col. J. F McNeill, A P. Spencer and W.
R. Cowan, long time friends of the family,
acted as pall bearers. Enveloped in ferns,
sweet roses and lilies her body rests with
the blessed dead, her spirit has entered
that land of eternal youth and unfailing
powers.
Think of her, apeak of her, not aa departed,
Short ia the distance that parts us to-day;
Round ns, about us, the brave aud true-
hearted,
Linger the deeds that have brightened
her way.
Pause not to mourn for her; up and be
doing.
Follow the paths that her feet trod before,
Hourly and daily her life-work renewing,
Speak peace to the troubled, give bread
to the poor.
Thus let us honor her, walking in duty,—
Thus shall her life of our lives form a
part;
Her mem’ry be shrined in a temple of
beauty,
And fadeless with wreaths, with gems
from the heart B.
