The Floyd Stock Sale Saturday was attended by large numbers, and prices were large. Jake Heeb announces the first oysters of the season. They came direct from Baltimore. It is . greatly to be desired that the city council and the Mayor will look upon circus day as a " special occa sioiij" and issue orders for all drink ing saloons to keep open until 2 o'clock in the morning. S. B. Gilljlaud, the staunch Bepub Jican route - agent, who is working for Sheriff Hopkins' re- election, was in town yesterday. fjhas. Arabreight, of Sibley, who will lead the LeMars Band and scrape fiwcs at Koeplg's tonsoriul parlors came down lasjt evening. . Reuben Loew left on the Central train yesterday for Chicago, where he will purchase the firm's stock of fall and winter goods, after which he will go to Michigan to arrange for large shipments of apples during the fall and winter. M. B. Davis, Esq.. the independent candidate for Senator from this district, passed through yesterday on his way to Storm Lake, whither lie had been called by prominent Republicans who ara opposed to the election of Mr. Robinson. The people of Buena Vista county do not oppose Mr. Robinson because he lacks ability, bit*; rather for the reason that they know him to be identified with the railroad rings and cliques, and they fear that he cannot impartially decide . upon matters that may come before the Senate, in which the people and the railroads may be at variance. Mr. Davis will visit LeMars on his return from Storm Lake. The Sioux City Journal desires that members of the next Legislature shall enter upon their duties untrammeled by pledges for United States Senatori al votes. The Journal was not always thus. For months it has been devoting its columns to proving that Gov. Gear is the most suitable man to represent the state in the national councils, but the voters of the state having token the matter in their own hands, the Journal sees the necessity of electing unpledged men. The last set- back received by Gear and his Immigration Commissioner came from the seventysixth district- composed of the counties of Kossuth, Emmet, Palo Alto and Humboldt counties— where Sheetz, of Alcona, was nominated, and under instructions to vote for that talented granger, Jas. F. Wilson. Grand Excursion, • M. Burg, of Burg & Hen tges, left this p. m. for Chicago and other eastern cities. We need only say that he will buy a fine stock of goods. This morning Dennis Cronen ordered his sprinkling wagon, and next week the streets of LeMars will be kept clear of dust; and henceforth afterwards. Ed. Cowan, charged with resisting and striking an officer, will be tried before the Mayor on Friday next. The case was set for yesterday, but was postponed. Tom Lias, who will probably be nominated to- day by the Republi cans of the 5th supervisor district for member of the board, was in town yesterday, trustful and enthusiastic « • » » To day John Latenser, head clerk at Reichmann's Cash Store, is one of the happiest men in the country. He will, this evening, be united in marriage to one of Dubuque's belle's. The pork house is pushing forward rapidly, and it promises to be one of the most important establishments in the town. Last week a little rumpus was raised by the anouncement that the building was too close to town, and would be a nuisance. The proprietors satisfactorily arranged this matter, and what promised to be a serious disaster to the town— the abandonment of the enterprise— was averted. At this particular time LeMars cannot afford to be too exacting with those who would build up the town. There are inconveniences that can well be borne, that will result in no harm to the people, but the causes thereof may be of great value to the city and to every citizen. We are pleased to know that the pork- house will stick. Our neighbor, N. B. Kaiser, the popular boot and shoe dealer, started to- day on a grand excursion to Chicago, New York, Philadelphia, and other eastern cities, where he will visit the largest boot and shoe factories in the United States, and it is his intention to buy the largest and best selected stock of boots and shoes ever brought to LeMars; such as the famous Burt's, Reynold Bros., and Ziegler Bros.— shoes for ladies, misses and children, and the celebrated Phelps, Dodge & Palmer glovefitting boots for men, boys and youths. Our readers will please bear in mind that Mr. Kaiser has the exclusive right to sell these goods in LeMars, and no other merchant can get them from the manufacturers at any price. But Mr. K. informs us that he will purchase enough to supply our smaller Btores, if they wish to handle some excellent goods. Besides those leading goods he will also buy aclarge stock of common boots and shoes, such as are usually kept in other stores, which he will sell so exceedingly low that no one needs to be without plenty of foot wear this fall and winter. These goods will arrive in due time for fall trade and can be seen at the only exclusive boot and shoe store in LeMars— two doors north of post office. The mention of \ Tm. McClintock, Esq., for Treasurer, meets with general satisisfaction. Mr. McClintock has been engaged in the treasurer's office for several years, is thoroughly conversant with all the details of the office, and would enter upon the management of the office thoroughly qualified to discharge the duties satisfacr torily. Besides, Mr. McClintock is known to be honest, careful, scrupulously neat in the care of his books, and he is a man who cannot be " run" by any clique or ring any more than the present treasurer, Mr. Herron. The Liberal would be pleased to support Mr. McClintock for treasurer, and we believe he can be elected. SERIOUS ACCIDENT.— Last night Dr. Hackett and Sheriff Hopkins were driving in from the western part of the county, and while several miles from town, the harness became detached, preventing the Doctor from controlling his hoi- ses, who started off on a dead run, throwing the occupants of the buggy to the grond, breaking Dr. Hackett's left arm and right thumb, and otherwise injuring him. The Sheriff suffered no inconvenience from the dumping, save a slight soreness. Dr. Hackett came home, and his partner, Dr. Hines set the broken bones. At this writing the patient is getting along nicely, and he will be able to attend to business in a few days.

S. Struble, the Republican nominee for representative two years ago. He will defeat the candidates nominated this year if it be possible. W. M. Lorimer writes from Kansas that the mercury indicated 111 degrees in the shade there, right along. Kansas is a delightful State, foxcrops and weather and simoons and grasshopperrs and drouth and tornadoes and prohibitory amendments and drunkenness, Philip Ruddin, the little Irishman . who liveB one mile south of town, is Jying dangerously ill at his home. Philip suffered from a sunstroke early i n the summer, and was Just recovering from the effects of that trouble when he was taken with hemorrhage of the bowels, from which it is feared he will not recover, The managers of the Republican party have missed their opportunity. There is in the Democratic party in this county a large element who are desirous of defeating the Hopkin- Bufihanan clique, and this element should nave been recognized in the call for a convention. Every Democrat in the county who will YQte against the " ring" ticket;, ought to We a voice in . taking the nominees for whom they MACBETH.— Whether this tragedy, considered bymanyShakspeare'smaster piece, wa3 too deep for general understanding, or too heavy for a summer evening, or people did not care to hear! more about the devil, having been told concerning him the night before, a small audience listened to a recitation of it by Rev: Foster at the Hall last night. The speaker stated the foundation of the drama, and then proceeded to recite the seven scenes into which he had condensed tho original twentyfive. The speaker's assumption of the different characters was very good and the style of delivery entirely different from the stage actor, and he does not mouth his words like a town- crier, but enunciates them distinctly, so that a person can understand the plot. All stage- plays are improved by scenery, and though the freedom from this maj' have slackened the interest somewhat, still the main points " that a guilt}' conscience needs no accuser," and " vaulting ambition oft o 'er - leaps itself,'' were brought out plainly. The Witch es' and the Sleep- walking scenes may be said to have been rendered the best. The Reverend gentleman is capable of entertaining a large audience, and it is to be regretted that so few attend those ontertainmeents, like that of last night, calculated to cultivate a taste for good reading, as well as elevate the morals. Preachers, and teachers, students and all who desire to bring out" the beauties of the works of their favorite authors and poets, should put forth their best efforts to become good Mr. Hunt, agont at the little union depot, informs us that that imposing structure built by the generous hearted citizens of LeMars is to undergo some improvements, and while the companies owning— by virtue of gift — tho handsome edifice will not enlarge it nor put much expense upon it while there is a possibility of removing the whole thing on a wheelbarrow to the west end of town, they will tear down two or three purtitions, whitewash the walls, scrub out and make the place more lit for the uses for which it was built by tho liberal people of this city. Thero is certainly room for some improvement on the little union depot, and we aro glad to know that Mr. Hunt is stirring tho companies to do something. S OME things worth remembering— that Townsend keeps Des Moines, Fort Dodge and Cumberland coal; that ho has plenty of stone; that the best brand of lime, at bottom figures, is always in stock, and that he won't be undersold on lumber— if grades and prompt delivery are taken into consideration. But he will not cut the bottom out on a bill and then charge it all back on the extras. 155tf F OR RENT.— A good set of rooms suitable for offices, in Kluckhohn & Loew's new building. l S l t f AXOTIIKH CLOTHING HOUSE.— II.

The new firm will be a branch of the cele. brated United States Clothing House Co,, of Chicago, and it is the intention of the proprietors to run a business that will attract and keep trade. The room to be occupied is now in course of completion, and will be one of the finest in the city, and Mr. Dow will find that for business he has struck the very best town in the west. When the new store is opened, the fact will be made known through the columns of the Liberal. /" TATTLE FOR SALE.— After date V _ y I will offer at private sale sixtyfour fat steers, four and five years old next spring.

The land excursion which came in last week was made up largely of men desiring to acquire real estate in this county, and the sales footed up a big figure, A Liberal reporter interviewed Mr. Bowman this morning to get the amount of his sales, but he was too busy to give anything like a definite answer. HJB sales yesterday were four thousand acres, and to- day he had several teams in the country showing lands. Other real estate men report large sales, and it is safe to say the excursion was the most successful that has visited LeMars for several years.
