The History of Western Iowa will be published, the people having guaranteed so liberally as to make it a success. The gentleman who has been canvassing LeMars has already secured over one hundred names, which insures a good return for the publishing company's outlay. NV\ v if the compiler of the history will devote himself to history and not give gushing biographies of " prominent men" the- work will he a success. Most histories in these last days are filled with notices of public men Miat would look well as obituaries, but render a history insipid and unreliable Let the History of Western Iowa lie a good one in all respects; then the subscribers will not feel that they have been swindled into paying for a puffing machine.

There are some people in LeMars— and among the heaviest property owners too— who are seriously talk-, ing of starting a movement looking ! firm dods drectly with the factories, to tho surrender of the city's charter. | houce it gets pri : os that cannot be Allison & Vogt, at P. 0 . drugstore - - ^ * - - Dnrston & Dunscomb, the goodwill grocers, have put in an immense stock of goods, suitable for tho holidays, and there can he no longer any excuse for our people goijig to Sioux Oirj* to make purchases. Besides the regular line of groceries, provisions, etc., Dors! on & Dunscomb have an elegant assortment of crockery, majolica ware, glass, and china that must b . i seen to be appreciated. This The better plan is to give the thing a fair trial. After a yu. ir or two ihe city government will run more smoothly. This morning's Journal prints the following: " There was a rumor in circulation late last night to the effect that an attempt had been made to rob a passenger train neir LeMars. Four masked men were said to have been engaged in the work, but the attempt was unsuccessful." We have carefully hunted the matter up, and find all true with those slight corrections : The attempt was not unsuccessful ; the robbers were not masked; ( he attempt was not made near LoMars; it was not intended to rob a passenger train j there was no such attempt. The society reporter of the Journal was a little beclouded last night. • To- day has b e n a special occasion tor Father Uleis, lie having performed two marriage ceremonies, and still being lull ot activity and energy. The first wedding was thai, ol Charles Shay and Mina Mary DeH'i. ss; ( he second, M. L. Forrette and Miss Mary llruelier. Mr. Forrette is a partner in the the firm of . Jno. M. l) roudf, & Co., a young man of line business habits, and a genial, go. i.! It ;:> c/ e 1 f,;! k. w. We wish him all the luippines.-: that c. ui p.- ssibly co . nt; to hum. inity, for h 1 doserves it. Mr. Forrette is a. p- trtn-. r in one of the best patronized stores iu Lc'Mars. and now that lie is married and happy, there will b^ extra bargains ottered there. S S I W E & l W E H A V E F O R had when the goods come through jobbers and wholes- ale dealers. The Liberal advises its readers to cull at once and examine ( ho fine display at Dnrston St Dunseomb's, and make yourselves and somebody else happy by selecting a handsome Christmas gift. And while looking at these elegant things, don't forget that you can get groceries, fresh and pure at Durston & Dunscomc's, as cheap as j any first- class grocery in town. The Sentinel's recent defeat at tho polls seems only to make it more desperate, and it rushes madly around seeking what it may devour. The Sentinel evidently doesn't bclivu that the decent citizens of LeMars have grown tired of its devious ways, for it is engaging in two now ventures that mean either successor death. The first is, the establishment of a daily edition; the second the co- partnership between Mr. Brandon and tiuehanau, the former to bring his printing press to LeMars and open out a •' regular" Republican paper. Buchanan is satisfied that the recent ly elected county officers will not patronize him beyond what they have to, but he hopes that, they may be huuny- fuggled into supporting the Brandon paper. It does not require a far sighted man to deb- rniine that tin i.' O weekly and two daily papers are too naiieii for LeMars. . Dissolution and death must come to one or mora. — - .

Mr. Evans from a eumpnrativcly small beginning has built up a line trade here iu three years, ami he keeps fully abreast ol the limes by C; UT\ ing the best lin . es of goods, and selling the same at reasonable prices. This week Messrs Kvans & Co. arc opening ; i magnificent lot of goods suitable for the holiday trade, to which we. would coll the attention of our readers. Goods bought of Evans' arc ajwavs just what they are represented to Lie. Call and see the fine stock. The Sandwich Manufacturing C'o's business here is now looked after by George A. Gibson, formerly of . Nashua, a brother of W. T. Gibson. Mr. ( jibson, jr.. is a pleasant gentleman and will make a valuable ollice man. Mr. Gibson likes LeMars. At the lire the other night he lost his pocket boolj, containing a number of valuable papers and a large amount of money, lie gave tho thing up. but one ol the plasterers on the Bowman house found the pocket book, discovered its owner, and returned it. Which is just like a LeMars man. Tho Sandwich Manufacturing Co. is selling a great number of corn shellers this winter, tar in ,' excess of what was done last year.

DIEHL & THOMPSON, C I i Y D R U G STOPE, LeMars, Iowa. v . . one of tho English colony, died this morning of malarial fever, after an illness running through several weeks. Mr. Roopo camo to Iowa in August, 1880, and entored as a pupil on tho Benson farm. He worked faithfully to master tho difficulties of western farming, find had j u s t comiJoted his course' when ho was taken with the fover. He lay for several weeks at tho Albiou House, but Saturday was removed to the residence of M. J. Chapman, Esq., where he died as above stated. Every care and attention was given the sick man, but the disease was of the most serious type, and recovery was impossible. Mr. Roope was about twenty- two years old; a quiet, pleas ant sociable fellow, well liked by all who knew him. In a strauge land his body will be laid to rest, while friends on both sides the Great Sea will mourn his untimely death. Tho funeralwill take place on Friday ao half- past oue o'clock. Tom Roland, of Merrill, was north nf town yesterday driving a balkv horse. The horse " stopned" several miles from town ami refused percmptoi-. lv to advance.

Oillea:-. and other Illinois Central officials were in town this morning, and had a conference with our c r y authorities, the resultof wiiica was that both sides present cd arguments in reference to ' the' side tracks in this city, and an amicable understannding was arrived at, ai,(. l everything will hereafter move along smoothly. The railroad coiu- | puny will grade up and build a twelve ( foot sidewalk from ' Jadw. sll's livery stable to Mrs. Byrne's property, and will see that the streets are kept clear from standing oars. T. ies . i gentlemen spoke flatteringly of LoMars' prospects. " Seam, gusset and baud" sewed rapidly with the machines sold at a bargain by Steiner & Co. llwtf A laughable invident occurred at the intersection of Main and Sixth streets yesterday afternoon. Peter Kgan was filling up along - the new crossing. Tiv. young men came driving along, and they evidently did not sec the old man. The team came close to Egan's body when he quickly raised a shovelful of brick- bats and hoisted them upon team, drivers and all, to the great discomfiture of the youths'. The team became frightened, and balked badly; the occupants of the buggy talked fight, but Egan K. Mowai LeMars for the contomplatin : a removal lo the southwest, where fie will again manage a railroad hotel and eating house. Mr. Rowman was proprietor of the Depot Hotel in this place lor several years, and was rated as one of tho best hotel men in northern Iowa. After disposing' of that business he engaged in farming, but finally got back into the restaurant business which he has been running for three years past. He is a number one man for that calling, and has, we judge, made considerable money at it. While we shall regret to lose Mr. l.' owmau front the city, he will always have the. good wishes ot our people who will be pleased to hear of his success. The town which li. K. has in mind is a thriving western " city" where seven passenger trains feed daily. The mystery concerning Bob Magec's learn has been solved. They were found jester- day within hali'- a mile < if Magec's house, in a slough, d e a d from starvation and exposure. Magee had scoured the country in search of these horses, and had sovei al limes passed within five rods of where lliey stood, but failed to see them. The wagon could have been seen from the owner's house had he looked in that direction. The finding is a comfort to Mngee, as he now knows they are irrevocably lost, but if falls heavily on a poor mm. and sonic good- heui'leil citizen ought to start a purse for him.

That " pound" party at Adamson's school house Tuesday evening, was a complete success, a large uumbor of friends being present. The articles and money contributed amounted in value to twenty dollars, and when all had been carefully examined, Rev Alnuft announced that there had been a mistake, as tho benefit was intended for Payne L.

" Why," said Mr. Argo to a Liberal reporter this morning, " Judge Bagg could send a man to the penitentiary for life and do ft so pleasantly, smile so gracefully while pronouncing t h e sentence, that any decent prisoner would be competed to return hiin thanks."
