along without serious difficulty It was only when a third party a Miss Ross stepped between them and the object of their mutual affection that the real trouble began Miss Ross who is a resident of Creston and said to be much more comely than her two rivals was not long in winning the young man en tireiy away from his former associates1 This made the other girls extrernelyj jealous They tried every way to win the young fellow back but all their ef forts camo to naught and they then started in to circumvent their success rul rival by means of writing and send ing her a series of letters of

prominent business man mnko a statement yesterday that sot ns to thinking Ha said there arc 25or 26 yon from larlnda who tiro ffolnjr to attend college this year which nieans an expenditure of JSiMO or uidro dollars This money might be spent at loraolf there were a arood college hero but there Is not and it is taking our yomig people away to spend money In other towns Hint have enterprise enough to maintain a good collesro Instead ot coiiiiner to Clarinda families wilt noyo away from Clarinda to educate their children There a a good point in tho mer chants remark and one that will boar thought It not keep all at homo how over as we speak from experience Corning has an excellent Academy and has had for years Fully half of its patronage is from other localities while fully as many from Corning and vicinity go elsewhere to school There is no bettor school in southwest Iowa than the Corning Academy yet a num ber of Corning parents take their child ren away from home to school them at twice the cost So long as the fad ex ists that you can get something away from home that is better than at home so long will other localities prosper at our expense Corning Academy would have just as large an enrollment with out a simple accession from without if all our college going students would stay at home of Will STATE OP IOWA1 ss District Court in Adams CountyJ cation To all whom
