The Sioux County Independent intimate that LeMars has a big scandal on foot aniong the best families; but the Independent is a little off its testament. There is no scandal whatever that a flee is our best families. Commencing with the fist ol'iUe month the Illiuois Central Railroad company will transport weat from this place 1 0 Milwaukee and Chicago at the rate of 41) cents per 100 pounds a, reduction ot 4 . cents on the rales of Febiuray 1873.

D. A. IV. P » r k i n s ' l'* ei. ure last Friday evening - on Life's Struggles, was among the best intellectual feasts our people li'ive ever enjoyed. Mr. Perkins ii a powerful lall-. ct'. a s t r o n g rcasoucr, and his lecture was far superior t o many - delivered by •' jtrofosf- ioiials." The public library cleared $ 27 20 by the enter l a i n i l H M U . Immigration bid? fair to be unprecideuted during the coming spring and a majority of those who piopose to locate iu this county will come prepared to buy farms, put up buildings and iu ike other improvements that will add not a little to the wealth and prosperity of the county; an unusual number of our present citizens are making all the preliminary arrangements for improving their properly, while iu business circles a general improvement in trade is confidently anticipated, and, taking everything into consideration, the outlook for the future of Li Mars aud Plymouth county is cheering in the extreme. Our night watchman made a very laudable effort to lessee, the number of dogs iu LeMars last Thursday night and commenced b y shooting al, one of those curs on ihe corner of Main and Sixth streets. The remit of the shot was not al. that could be desired, for instead of striking the dog the h i. iJet hit the hard ground and glancing olTpassed through Uv> large windows and a show- case iu Pluil A Son's store and was picked up mjxt morning just a', the door of the counting room It is a pity that all the dogs in town had not been set up in a row and that shot tired in a dn ect. Hue W i l l i I hair heads. The bullet would certainly never stopped until I b e last purphad been laid out. Portlanth'ille Notes. Solon Bevins will be home from Nebraska this week.

Rev. Amburn prea- hed here in the M. E. church yesterday twice. He used to be on the LeMars circuit but is now located at, Goalhville iu 1). T. Waller Lillibrldge who has been station agent here for the last Iwo years was succeeded last week by Mr, Smith. The change was made necessary as Mr. Llllibridgc was not a telegraph operator. Perseverance William of Sioux City was here all last week auctioneering for Blades & Jwrdou. He. incorporated several short temperance lectures in his work. He seems to never loose a chance to jpeak for temperance. MAC. Xotes Irom Grant. Plymouth Countj. The following wo take from the Iowa Railroad Laud Company's pamphlet for 1870: Annual Report of the Secretary of the Independent School District of LeMars, for the year ending Monday morning W. H. Smith the tailor- jeweler, se- ut a generous supply of choice cigars to this office, the cause thereof being a bright new boy baby who made his appearance in the Smith household last week The Liberal congratulates Mr. Smith on his good fortune, and earnestly trusts that there may he many roor'ejlike occasions to follow. The Cherokee Free Press indulged iu emphatic language last week, when speaking . of the Sioux City Joiiiaal's manner o f • canvassing for job work. But the Free Press was scarcely dry before itie numerous editor thereof was in LeMars, heg- £ tug for work, aud actually took a " brief" at, forty- live cenis per page — though the legal price U one dollar. It would be wise for the young men of the Free Press to give Ihe Perkin's a rest in the future. Our friends of the M. E. Oa. ir. jh of Marion township coiuinouced a series of revival meetings at thu A Urn- ion school house last Thursday eveniug which are proving very in'eresting as well as profi table. The general attendance has been good and several persons have expressed a desire to " come and out on the Lord's aide." Meetings- will be held every evening this week, and probably during the coming week. The lecture by J. M. Emery, Esq., last evening was well attended and highly appreciated by the large audience present. The speaker graphically described the march, the capture, life in Southern prisons, with anecdotes and incidents some humorous. others horrible and blood curdling. The ball was filled, and the speaker held the interest of the audience until the close of his remarks. We congratulate Mr. Emery upon the very ex c l i e n t impression made, and the Methodist Sunday school in haviug liquidated 5 » 8 debt. Nsxt Friday evening the • grand masquerade ball for the benefit of the Indapendent Cornet Band takes place at Van- Sickel's Hall, and that the occasion will be one of the moat pleasant of the 6ea aoa we have no doubt. Mrs, Menges, tha Dubug. ue jostumer, will be here with the latest designs of masquerade suits, which cau be had by the ladies at Mrs. Millinjan's, by ihe gen tlemen at the bookstore. The. boys are counting on the Presence of at least one hundred couples at the ball, and we trust thit uny not b e disappointed. Lyon county is happy in ihe possession nf a. sensation; not a very gigantic alfiir il is true but amply su: tt liein to supply foiti for gossip Cor a month ut leitsf. As usual the little god Cupid is al the bottom of the affair and this time, he has b? en playing his pranks on a couple who for some time p a n have been deriving their subsistence from puplio charity. So firmly did lie implant his darts in the hearts of his victims lhat no relief could be found except iu spody marriage The financial standing of the parties was not such as to warrant any great outlay iu the shape of wardrobes, but this tilling difficulty ihe parlies overcome by procuring their pauper warrants and exchanging them for a silk d/ es. s for the '. u- i'. e and a sleek broad- cloth coat for ll: groom. Bedecked in the lineiy supplied ly •• generous public, the happy couple sought the services of a justice where the ceremony that united two loving hearts was performed with as much unction as if a ten dollar fee had been anticipated. The affair of cour. se occasioned considerable talk, bul lhat. does not appear to mar the happiuess of ihe new made husband and wife iu the least. Peterson's Magazine, for March is an unusally brilliant number. It opens with a soiritod illustration, engraved on steal, " Let Mc Catch You, You Young Rogues." This is followed by a double- size colored fashion plate, whicn is altogether the most beautiful we have ever seen. Then comes a double- size pattern for a tidy, on Java Canvas, printed in the appropriate colors. Then a charming engraving, illustrating a powerfully written story, " My Evening Star." Then about fifty other engravings, illustrating the latest fasbiuu, patterns for the Work- Table, & c, &. The stories in this number are even better than usual, and they are always remarkably good in " Peterson." A Supplement is sent out with the number, with a full- size pattern to' th « latest of Polonaise. It is a standing wonder to us, as to all others, how so superior a magazine can be published at so low a price-, and it is only 10 be explained, as the publisher explains it, as a coiisquence of an enormouscii'culalion. He " prefers a small pro lit," he- says, " on a large edition, til a large pr- fu on a small edition." No lady should be without this magazine The terms arc but Two ' Dollars a year, with the great deductions to cfubs, aud handsome premiums to persons getting up clubs. Specimens are sent, gratis, to ! ers uud stock persons wishing to get up clubs, so that ludioa amy judge for themselves before subscribing. Addtess Chas. J .

P. P l l l K N I X. Thursday's Sioux City appropriately headed, An article, in Journal, very •' Sioux Cily's Hogs" gives a somewhat extended account, of an attempt, to resurrect the defunct " merchants exchange" in tbut city and run the concern in ihe interest of Jim Bacon && ( Jo. The article in quesliou admits what has long hewn known that a systematic swindle has been practiced upon the thoughtless portion of the farming community who have marketed their produce at. lhat city, and lhat the markets — the pork and grain markets particularly— Inms been run by n ring as despicable, n » ii is dishonest, a ring thai has repeatedly sent broad- cast, quotations that could not be sustained, a tin;.; that has considered no subterfuge too mean, so that it brought the county trade to their town, a ring that by misrepresentations aud down right lying has succeeded iu drawing into its snare many of the unsuspecting tanners whom its has bled most unmercifully. And now this ring finding the power to swindle fast slipping throngh their lingers, finding lhat. the farmers, awaking to a realization of their own interests, are taking their produce to of'her and more honorable markets where they will not lie subjected to the the thievish tricks of the " Sioux City ring," set up a terrible howl, beccuse these facts have come to light and are affecting them in their pockets, Hie only vulnerable point they possess. The Liberal has taken occ is: ion at different limes to warn the farmers agv. iust the nefarious tricks of these sharper* whose cause has invariably been championed by the loudest howling " reformer" of them all, Jim Bacon, who ou more than one occasion has attempted to defeud Ihe ring through the public pr « s « . Now that the prediction has come to pass, and the farmers arc shunning the Sioux City markets as they would ihe devil, Jim Bacon and others set up a yowl for " reform" a " reform" lhat, with that ring pimply a change of tactics. The farmer. i h « " e suffered too much to be again deceived by those so- called reformers., and rather than to take their chances in a market where, such practices have beeu ihe rule, will patronize one where square dealing an Plymouth county is on the western boundary of the State, in the third tier from the north end, and contains S4ii square miles, or 587, : (' ongn- ira I ional, $ 4 , 0 1 1 1 ); Uerman - Methodist, £ 3,111 >;); and Catholic, i?"), III Wl.

"It is amazing how easy and exciting it is to access all of this information! I found hundreds of articles about my relatives from Germany! Well worth the subscription!" - Michael S.
