Kumhera A deal was made last Fj-i<l;iy Whereby Elmer Larson has (li;;posed of hi", interest in the Larson & Johns mei-cantilevbusiness in this city to Joscpii Kumhera. Possession will be given to Mr. Kumhera o,i Dec. 1st. T|-.e new firm will be knov.-n by the na.ine of Johns & Kunihei-a. The rctirin;;-member of the firm, Mr. E. A. Lar-.'.011, has been ciifiafjcd in bu.'-iness hei-e with Mr. John< for about fou.-years, during wiiicii time the boys have had a very lucrative trade. They hrvc, by tlitir open and iidiioraljl! business methods, won for themselves front rank .■•nion;: the miM'chants of this town. It will be v/ith rci^ret Miat the patrons of tliis e-tablishnient will learn, of the rctiremeui of Mr. Larson. We have not leair.ed his future intentions, but it is hoped that he will continue to m,ake Pocahontas hi.i home. His business dealing:; are oi\-tirely above reproach and he enjoys the fullest confidence of liis customers. • The continuing membe;- of the firm. Ml'. Martin Johns, is wiil,oly k-nown in this county, having been actively eai-g-aged in bufliiiess for {he past several years at this place. The new firm will, wo are sure-come up tfl the expectations of their many patrons and will co-ntinuo with the same coui-teouo servicc that has marked and charartei-izcd that store in thci past. We wish the new firm unlimited patronage and bespeak for them a successful business venture. -D- High School Foot Ball Team CloSes Season The Pocahontas High School foot ball team ploiyed their final game of the season yesterday- (Wedi^esday).

Sacred Heart Lose.s to Columbia and Win From DyersVille The ^crcd Hcaiit football team rc-tumod Monday morning, by way of Pomeroy irom their trip to Dubuqve and Dyersville, where th'iy plnyel foot ball on Friday and Sunday. The piayars, accompanied by Geo. Sclinieders, Geo. Kiefer E. Tl. Donohoe left at four o'clock: on Friday .moarninig, and, drove to Fort Dodgft where they took a 6 o'clock- train, arriving 13» Dubuque at noon, ^cy played their first game uv^ith the Axia-demy team ^ Columbia College theft aftemaoii and were defeated byr a scoi-e of 26 to 0, The PocafeTOtas boys were not in good .shape on^ccount of the luird trip, ^nd the Ac^emy team scored two toijchdo\^ in the first bix minutes of play, and completely outrplayed our tt»am in the f'l-st quarter. ' In the sac-rmd <juarter the Pr-cahcntor, team brace.'' held the Academy team EcorilciKS. Th; third quarter was » complete change, with thy Pocalionta:-team holdini^ their own. and with ! some exceilent tacklinj^ they kept tb.-^ i home boys away from the goal, until i the very last minute of th.^ fiuailc -j when they scored their third touch-1 down. Li the last quiir.-ter they scored one more touchdown .'-hortly be-fi-'re the. game eiidr«!. The boys were very w'l'll satisfie I , with the re,.^ult (,f this K'anie, a.s the i Dubu(|ue coach has ;!.50 boys froniP^ v.-hich to pick his team, has them for; two hours practice every day, ar/P they show the result of íímo/I coach-' i^nji and they played a hard, clean!

On thô sixth atteniiit a puiiit. from Kelly was returned to the five yM'd line, and on the fourth dowii wa,s put over the line. The goal from touchdown for Pocahontas was. Iciclccl, oír by the head linesman fot- offside. Dyersville kick was blocked but was given them for a penalty on Pocahontas, making the score 7 to 6' in Dyersville's favor, with four miuntes to play. Pocahantiis received the kick-off, Shors returning the ball to mid-field, and on the next play, a forward pass from Eberle 'o Shors took the ball to the thirty yard line. A short end nin carnc<l the ball to the twenty three yard line, from which place two downs failed, to gain but placed the ball in the middle o'f th-' field, and-from that point Ebei-ie kicked a field goal making the score 9 to 7 iin favor of Pocaliontas, with only a few seconds to play. It was dark whtn the kick-off wa.s made to Dyer.sville, and as expected they pulled a criss-cross play, tak'ng the ball to the middle of the field when the runner was stopped by Kreul. On the' n(jxt play th.ey failed to gain, and the game, cndetl at that place. ' The defensive play of the Pocahontas team throughout this game wa'j wonderful, but thoy did mot get much chance to exhibit what they might have done on offensive being - forced to punt nearly every time they took the ball, on account of being .<so'close to their goal line. The boys enjoyed th'« ti'ip, and every one \yho has liad anything to do with the team was plea.?-erV .with the results. The following boys made the,trip' Leo. HammcîS, center; Mike Ruddy, Ted Hammes, Ben Hronck, Joe Sinek and Emmet Eberle, guards; Eldoo (Murray, Ed Holder, Jos Lieb, and Geoirg© Rivard. tackles; Raymon ,1 Kelly.
