GITTINGERNEWS Of PEOPLE HERE ANO THEREWhat the People are Doing Lucas County and Surroundingsin It is reported that Wra. R. Lewis, proprietor of the Quality Grocery House, of this city, has leased the new business room In the Brown Block, on the north side, and will occupy it as soon as it can be completed. This will give him a large floor space and two fronts, one on the street and the other on the alley, which will make it quite convenient. This gives a iloor space of 25 x 125 feet and an L of 20 x 30 feet. It is also the report that Mr Lewis will engage more extensively in the provision business and will add a meat market to the establishment. Samuel McKlveen has been looking after his possessions in Canada, and returned home on the first of the week, arriving in Fralrie City, a week ago, and spending Sunday In Ottumwa. He says things look fairly well in the north country, but in places the crops were injured by dry weather, but the fall plowing ready for next years seeding has commenced and as there is now an abundance of moisture the future looks good.- splte of the dry season building in town and country is moving In s] both right ahead. It is noticed that I. N. Threlkeld, who owns the Dukes farm, a short distance east of Chariton, has a new farm residence almost completed. He made large additions onto the original building which makes a fine Bhowing and is one of the pretty country places on that road. Mrs. Frank Richmond, of Wayne township, returned Monday from Chariton, where she had been visiting her daughter, Mrs. Ida Carmack, and brother, Mr. Harper. She was accompanied home by her little granddaugh-er, who will remain with her for some time. Mrs. J. R. Hurford went to Melrose, Monday to spend a few days with relatives. She expects to leave Friday, for Cainsville, Missouri, to visit relatives enroute to Shawnee, Oklahoma, to spend the winter with her son, Lon and family. Dr. Theo. Bal-nes, who réfcently located near Hillsdale, Wyoming, where he secured land, has concluded that Iowa is good enough for him and has located at Mt. Ayr, where he will reenter the practice of medicine. He "formerly resided in Ringgold county. Mr. and Mr*, J. E. Clark of Lacona, and Mr. and Mrs. Harry Gage of Sheridan, Wyoming, were in attend-ance at their, fathers funeral, Saturday, Joseph Clark, who died in JXus-sefl, and buried in the Chariton cemetery. S. A. Riddle, in speaking of his recent trip to Colorado, said to the Leader. The drought has been everywhere. The irrigated parts of Colorado have suffered as well as other places. The farmers on new ditches did not get sufficient water to fully develop crops. It was the men who were along the old ditches that got the full benefits. They reapd the harvests of the old established. The musical program given by the - Christian Church Choir was quite a success; the house was well filled, including the balconies, and the numbers were well received; the offering was good and will aid materially in the musio of the church. They expect to give« musical evehing at intervals of two or three months. J. K. Ekfelt came up from Ottumwa, the first of the week to look after business and visit friends. He had been tor Chicago, where his son, Charles, was taking treatment at the Swedish hospital. He returned to Ottumwa greatly im ........ " • after store there.

Maple has been in quite a serious physical condition and is confined to his home most of the time, nob being able to look after business matters. At present he is somewhat improved but is far from being well. He has been troubled with a cough, the result ot a severe cold and condition has given his friends much concern. . S. L.

James Franklin Willett was born at ihbT Amsterdam, Indiana, March 28, 188<J He came to Lucas county with the family in 1893, residing at Russell for a time, then removing to Chariton, where he grew to manhood, and received his education in the Chariton schools. His father died when he was o months old. November 15, 1903, he was united in marriage to Miss Cora B. Mingles, who, with three little ones survives him. He was a skilled mechanist, and his labor whs in demand, so much so that long after he was unfit for work he was unable to give up. For some 5 or G years he was unwell. He went to the state hospital for treatment and was apparently bettered, but it did not prove permanent, and soon he was losing again. He continued to work at his trade, however, a part of the time till a few weeks ago, when he was compelled to take his bed. From that time the decline was rapid, but many kind hands ministered to his wants. He suffered greatly, but was patient and grateful for kindness shown him. His habits were clean. In his home life lie was kind and considerate, of affectionate disposition, and made many friends. At the last he expressed himself as prepared in mind for the great change we call death, [lis good qualities arc to be admired and commended, his faults covered with the mantle of christian charity, as becometh them who hope in the mercy and forgiveness of God May the Father of the fatherless comfort the widow and the orphaned children; and may all remember the sorrowing and the needy ones around us, for we may, all too soon, be in that class. Court Adjourned. . The last week of court was taken up in the trial of the ditch case from Pleasant township and the State Savings Bank vs First National et al, Wm. L. Miller and E. J. Miller. In the latter case the Millers sold an 80-acre farm on which the State Savings Bank held a mortgage. They left the money with F. R. Crocker at the First National Bank to pay off the mortgage. He never paid it over. The Savings Bank began foreclosure proceedings. The Millers resisted it on the grounds that the Savings Bank should have got money of Crocker. Later the supreme court ruled that the Savings Bank had a right to foreclose. The Millers and the Savings Bank then joined and sued the receiver for the money. The court ruled on Tuesday that the receiver must turn over the money withheld by Crocker to the Millers. It is a just yerdit. Mr. Park Williams purchased the farm owned by the Millers. Before his death Robert Elliott, of Pleasant township, had dug a drainage ditch on his land. H. F. Grimes claimed this caused the water to back upon his premises, damaging him. Suit was brought and continued against the estate. A large number of witnesses testified. The court decided in favor of the defendant. WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING Some Items of Street by Interest to our Readers as heard on the our Interviewer- Some Live Facts Lot Auction Sale. The auction sale of lots advertised by Mrs. May Waynick McNulty, came off on Tuesday afternoon, at which all her offerings were disposed of. The Chariton band led to the procession to the grounds and a good crowd was in attendance. T. M. Hooper bought the corner lot on Grand street paying $850 therefor. The adjoining lot on the south brought $710 and Is now the property of T. H. Maxwell. These prices Include the paving now ordered. In block 8 of Waynlck's second addition G. T. Anderson purchased a lot, price »260. In block 9 John A. Keller secured lots 1, 2 and 3 at $1200, and may build thereon next year. Dr. C. E. Stewart bought lot 0 and one third of lot 7 for $500 and L. R. Johnson took the south two thirds of lot 7 at $275. J. E. Reese secured lots 6 and 7, block 8 i^ Waynlck's second addition, the price being $620. Another New Building. G. W. Larimer has completed arrangements for the erection of another two story brick building between the Union Block and the H.ollinger & Doming Block, on Main street. The entire building will be 165 feet long, 85 feet two stories high. Dunshee Bros, have leased the back part of the first floor, the basement and the upper floor. Mr» Larimer has several offers for the front room. It Is. understood excavation will soon commence. Death of Mrs. Ira Bond. The many friends and relatives of Mrs. Ira Bond wese grieved to loam of her death wbirch occurred at her home in Summit, South Dakota, Saturday. She had been ill but a short time and relatives here had not been informed of her illness. She was formerly Miss Minnie Stover, of Lucas, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. N. W. Stover, and resided in this county a number of years. She was about fifMr years of age and leaves a husband, three sons and two daughters. Her brother, Charles Bond, and sister, Mrs. W. W. Clore, left Sunday to be present at the funeral. McMains & Hasbrouck They have 8 sales dated for next week. 'Their services are in demand. Two good aubtloneers of equal ability, working together, whose interest« are mutual, can certainly get the high dollar for the property they sell. Democratic Judicial Ticket. For Judge, L. T. Richmond For Judge, J. J. Smith For Judge, A. R, McBeth -.For Judgej o. W. Stuart, iJlll^^t' " ' - I have been railroading for a number of years at Rock Springs, Wyoming I can't say that I like that part of the west as well as I do Iowa but it takes lots of money to get a foot hold in Iowa now. We do well at our employment out there. Some day I hope to be able to return to Iowa to live. Out where we are nothing much grows— it is a dry country—not a farming country, and you seldom see green vegetation.—W. A. Mauk. When I wap a young man, before I had made money enough to gjfeintothe mercantile business, I traveled as a pack peddler. One day I stopped at a farm house where there was a wedding. As it happened to be near the noon hour I was in Mi ted to stay until atfer the feast, a sort of guest without the wedding garments. The folks were very hospitable and my welcome seemed as cordial as anybody's. After the ceremony and feast they insisted on tne showing my goods, so I went the front room and untied my pack. In that pack was a half dozen line bed I was down at St. Joseph, Saturday, and got that linger cut off at the first joint in a door at my son's home. You see I can't lay in a claim for damage against him as I was a guest in the home, besides it Is all in the family. However, it is lucky that R was not the index linger of my right hand—in that case 1 could not have pointed with pride at the past record of the grand old party, or the grand new party, or at the dangers confronting us in the future, if every republican had his right index linger severed from his hand the country would be in »deplorable shape. But even the severing of the left index finger on the hand of an individual republican is not pleasant.. We wonder if Mr. Taft felt the sensation?—J. H. Andrew. It must be that I am getting young and active again. On the week of the Derby reunion I attended there two days. The same week I was at Win-terset at the reunion of our old regiment, the 34th Iowa. I was accompanied by two of ray daughters. The other members of the regiment from Charlton were Comrades William Tout and Wilberforce Coles. We had a splendid time, although Winterset Is a hard place to get to. Our regimental reunion is held regularly every other year only but as Lieutenant McAndrew lives at Winterset he wanted an "off year" meeting to be held there and agreed to make all arrangements, lie is a prominent citizen, having been mayor, sheriff of the county etc., but to our surprise when we reached there he was away—having been called to Des Moines by the death of a sister, but dinner was-awaitifig us aivd ai&n he arrived from Des Moines in an automobile. Colonel Palmer and Hon. George Cosson were there and made speeches and the entertainment was first class We did not expect such a large attendance but to our surprise there were forty comrades present and we fought the battles over again for two days and renewed our comradeship. Next year the regular reunion is to be held in Charlton —Col. Warren S. Dungan. I like the farming business.' I think if the young man will stay with it in Lucas county he will win out in the long run. Land is high, I will admit, but on the other hand the price of farm products are good and not likely to decrease so long as more than fifty per cent of the people of the United States live In towns and are non producers of food products. In fact the prospects and possibilities for the farm will increase rather than decrease. Of course adversities and dry seasons will come but in time this can to some extent be overcome by our improved methods of farming, caring for the soli etc. This year I have some as fine corn as I ever saw grow, and the hay crop, while not heavy, was of good quality, and the harvest crops were excellent. The lack of good grazing is against us some but take It all in all we are going to come through in pretty good shape this year—J. E. Moore,Christian Church Notes. The Pastor will Dreach both morn lag and evening. Morning sermon,-' "The Tie That Binds." Evening sermon, to the young, "Best Years of Life." All are most earnestly invited The Sunday School have Rally Day, at 9:45. Some special features will be in the program, and the aim is "Every Member Present." The Bible School Is alive and Interesting; we are In the "Front Rank Movement," which means the latest and best things In the Sunday School line; the people are appreciating this, and the school is.growing finely. The Christian Endeavor society, too, is in earnest; their work Is Important; they have their meetings at 0:30, one hour before preaching. All young people are welcome. The Ladies Aid Society will be entertained by Mrs. Amy Yengel and Mr». Alfred Lundgren at Mrs. Yengel's, on Friday afternoon. They are preparing to give a "Boston Lunch" at the church on Saturday the first day of October.__Allen's Sale. John H. Allen, of Cedar township, was a Leader caller, Tuesday, and left the information that he was going to hold a closing out sale of Short-Horn cattle in Chariton, on Saturday, Oct.-22, 1910. __ _ _ To the many friends who so kindly assisted us during the illness and death of our beloved nusband and son, and for the beautiful floral tributes sent, we wish to extend ouj/heartfelt thanks. Mbs. Cora Willett, MHS. ^xllxs LAKE. I will soon hold a closing out sale preparatory to removing to Saskatchewan, Canada, about 50 miles north of the Capital of the province. 1 have into resided at LaGrange, in Cedar township, a good many years, and still own the farm there, which I will either sell or rent later. While George Johnson and I were in Canada several months of land between us and the two families will go together and each improve his half of the section. Mr. Johnson has sold to his tenant who resides on the place thisyear. We will make the move between this and seeding lime next spring. The opportunities there for the raising of grain is most excellent and many cases the first crop pays for the land. It is no experiment. Tho soil has been tested and what has been done can bo done again. Of course one has to have capital enough to secure teams, plows, seed and harvest machinery—or ii he wants to risk only a part on this arrangements can be made on the shares. They do not have to hurry in crop season and during the harvest like we do here. Canada is one great grain Held and people generally are getting on well.—M. H. Van Nice. spreads—not expensive but pretty. When the bride beheld them she wanted one immediately. What do you ' since, we purchased a section suppose she took it for? Why, a new-fangled table cloth, and before I could explain the money had been laid down by the guests for the whole six. I never told them they were tablecloths but of course they could use them for that purpose if they wanted to. They held title to them.—Henry Simpson. ti'- f Readthe _ I had intended to go west in August to look at the country and see whether I would like it well enough to invest In land and locate, but had to defer it until after corn picking on account of the dry weather. I am' not certain that 1 will find a country I will like better than Iowa." Where a fellow was born and raised always' looks mighty good to him.—George W. Cavett. On last Sunday my wife and I were at Prairie City, accompanying Mrs. Hahn's mother, Mrs. Stewart, there. We had been invited to a family reunion She is 37 years of age and she met there four sisters-in-law almost her own age—each of the five being over 85. They were all widows of veterans of the civil war.—Phillip Hahn. . I am a native of Wisconsin, born near Sparta, where Company H, of this city, camped a few weeks since. That is a sandy country—almost like a desert in places and this appears like the promised land beside it. Part of our larm was fertile and the balance sandy. The sandy part was valueless. A tract, a small tract, however, might be firm and then of a sudden break off into sand, and none of it was very productive. On account of the lay of the country and general altitude tho winters were cold and neighbors were far apart. We had poor schools and there were few congenial features. Overshoes and overcoats were unknown quantities and we often shivered. I am glad that conditions—or that I live in a country—where conditions are different. The Lucas county youth does not know what early hard ship means.—A, F. Miller.St. Andrew's Church Notice. The services last Sunday were quite well attended. The selections rendered by the cbolr were very well done. Next Sunday the choir will be much stronger as a number that were away will be on hand. Following is the program for the evening service: Processional__________________________________516 Chorus—Soek Ye the Lord_______Roberts Solo—Selected..______Miss Willie Brown Chorus—Hallelujah---------Wilson Duet—Crucifix_________________Taner Combs and Caughlan Glorir.

Mrs. O. F. Klnmonth, of Russell, was in Chariton, Tuesday, enroute to Kansas City, Mo., to attend a family reunion of relatives at the home of her brother, Chas. Atherton, of that city. There are seven surviving members, one sister, Mrs. Dewolf," having died since their last reunion eight years ago at Lafayette, 111. Tboseln attendance were Mrs. Haxton and Jesse Atherton, of Lafayette, 111., Barney Atherton and Mrs. Winders, of Macomb, 111., Mrs. Henriette Kinmontb, of Colupibus Junction, Mrs. Kinmontb, of Russell, and Chas. Atherton,' of Kansas City* A Young Traveler. Mr. and Mrs N* F. Baker, of Lucas, were in Charitop, Monday, coming to start Miss Eloise Knotts to herdestiun tlon in North Dakota. And by-the-way a farther recital may be interesting. Miss Eloise is now nine years old and went with her parents, Mr and Mrs. Arthur Knotts, to Guanjuato Old Mexico, when she was a mere Infant. This is in the southern part of the republic and Mr. Knotts is engaged with a large English mining 'company there, is in a responsible position and receives a good salary, but everything is Indian and Spanish there, so they decided to send their daughter to Churches Ferry, N. D., to place her in school and in the care of his sister, Mrs. Laura Wickerd as she and her husband, Rev. Wickerd, are located there. Little Miss Knotts is certainly a heroine as she made the trip alone and proves the efficiency of American trainmen. She was placed in their charge at the starting point and reached Lucas a little more than a week ago, and after a rest at the Baker home, continued her journey north on Monday evening. The Leader was pleased to meet ber during her stay in Chariton, where she was a guest of Mr. and Mrs. Hanks, and found her quite interesting and bright. While she has never had the benefits of English schools yet she has bad good home training and has suffered nothing on that score as yet, besides she is fluent in the Spanish tongue and speaks it in it more perfect accents, can tell you about the customs of that country, illustrato the Mexican "fandangos"—or dances, sing the Mexican National songs and furnish hours of entertainment for those who know nothing of our southern neighbors. One would have thought a child of her tender years would have, become sad and homesick on such a long, lonely journey, but »he was as resolute as those of mature age and is becoming cosmopolitan in her experiences. Who Wants Him? Tho Leader's dog, "Snick", must be disposed of soon, as we cannot afi'ord so many luxuries and have decided to purchase a double decked, 900 H. 1*. automobile between this and the next touring season, besides the dog has not sufficient speed to keep in running distance. It was the intention to dispose of him by artificial means, but that has proven unavailable, so anybody that wants him should call immediately and we will give clear title and rcceipt for last yearB taxes, which are now paid. A member of the Charlton Gtfn Club took the job of exterminating him .with «rcold'pump but every bullet that was fired at him was caught in his teeth, and that method bad to be abandoned. Poison was tried but he seems to be able to form miracles and this only gave an opportunity to demonstrate powers. On last Wednesday he down across the rail in front of a car wheel of passenger train No. 3, in the shade, and when the train moved up he was severed in twain but even that failed to remove him fr6m pernicious activities as he certainly has the qualities of a joint snake and was soon Intact again and bit a drunkard on the calf. He would make a good dog to go with the show, or bis hide might make fine leather as it is already barren of hair on account of an affection of mange. If you think you can handle the dog call at almost any time—Sunday not excepted, as we are anxious to get the business closed up. per-hlm his laidChicken Thieves Abroad. Chicken thieveB made a rajfl on the ilock of *Mrs.-C. E. Foster, in Lincoln township, and carried away between four and five hundred. It will be remembered that the Leader made mention of the large number of chickens that the Fosters had incubated. Theraid was made on this flock. Mr. Foster was away and one night the thieves came and helped themselves and on the next night Returned for another load. Mrs. Foster saw them but they bad taken the precaution to ground the telephone wire so she could give no alarm and they became somewhat impudent. She could not recognize them and they got away with their booty unmolested. They stole between $100 and $150 worth of chickens and this is not a very pleasant experience when one realizes the hard work and care attached to the poultry business. It is to be hoped the culprits will be discovered, convicted ana sent to a place where poultry does not roost so conveniently low.Railroad Surveyors. For seyeral weeks there has been a coprs of railroad surveyors working in the vicinity of Dallas, in Marlon county, and recently they have started south from there and expect to reach the vicinity south of Newbern within a short time, so the report goes. They expect to make their next camp in Lincoln township. They are not given to talk but they. say tbey are beaded Mr Seymour, Iowa. If so the route may go through Russell. But one of the men in the party told the Leader that it was their intention to strike Allertan. In that event Chariton would likely be on their route. However, as these railroad rumors have been so frequent we guarantee nothing or accept things as facts until we ,see the full ~ evidence ot their intention made manifest.St. Andrew's Church Notes.ormm weekA Record ot What We Hear and See of Happenings in This Vicinity Chas. 13. Foster,of Lincoln township, left us some peaches, on Saturday, that were grown on tne J. A. King farm. They had "quite a few" that escaped the frosts of the spring and developed into fine flavor, and were of good size. With care and protection this pi-oves that Iowa never need have a failure of a fruit crop. It is because more attention is paid to other things and fruit is not considered of enough importance to "fool with," which Is a mistake. The writer was shown the now abstract books Miss Margaret Watson Is compiling for G. W. Larimer and for • quality of work, neatness and leglbll^: ity of penmanship they can not be excelled in the state of Iowa. She has the six west townships completed and* it will likely take her six months to finish the records. It is certainly an achievement to be proud of and the work Involved the greatest of care. S. L. Morrison has purchased a half section of land near Hillsdale, Wyoming, adjoining a half section owned by his son. The.v will convert this into a stock ranch and make it to their mutual advantage. Mr. Morrison saw the land recently when he was out there and he may establish the family home In that country in the future. Improvements are going on everywhere in Charlton. In the southeast part of the city Lee Talcott has the foundation walls up for a new residence building which he is erecting, and will build it on the bungaio plan, furnished with modern conveniences. This Is on the grounds at one time owned* and occupied by Philip llahn, and is on the site of the old building. J. H. Andrew was at the home of his sou in St. Joseph, last Saturday, and met with a painful accident, and is minus a part of the front finger on his left hand. The grocery boy came with some goods and In letting him in Mr. Andrew got his finger caught in the door, which severed it at the first joint. William Hampton, who resides on thp fennebakep fartp theae and & quarter of a miles north o£Sharitoo,has advertised a sale for Tuesday, Oct. 4, to close up a partnerhlp. Mr. Hampton owns a farm south of Russell and may have a sale there later on. It is reported that S. A. Riddle has sold his Cedar township farm and 'e*c pects to remove to Colorado. Years ago he resided there and recently was on a visit to that state, up near Ft. Collins. With all these evidences the Leader fears the report is true. Mrs; Mary Goltry has purchased the -80-acre farm, formerly owned by T. E. Plotts, just south of Russell, of E. J. Hatcher, the price .paid being $95.00 per acre. Leonard Goltry will take charge of the place In the spring. Mrs. H. J. Shepherd, of Milo, made a short visit with her daughter, Mrs. William Whittlesey, near Russell, and with relatives in 'Chariton, leaving Tuesday for Sacramento, California, to spend the winter with ber son, G. W. Higgins. Samuel McKlveen went to Denver, Colorado, Tuesday, to spend a week or ten days with his wife, who has been testine: the climate as a preventive of hay fever. She will probably accom-pany him home. Dr. M. M. Perry called the writer into his ofiice, one day on the first of the week, to show him bis Improved physical condition. It was two years ago last Sunday, September 18, 1908, when he was stricken with paralysis and until within a''short time ago no sensation was noticable in bis left arm, and hand but now there is slight action and ,he believes in time he will regain the use of these members. H. J. Engebretsen was called to Glenwood, Minnesota, on Monday night, called there by the serious illness of a brother. The report stated that he was not expected to live and Henry left on the early, night train. Mrs. William Kenton, of Russell, . went to Isabel, Oklahoma, Tuesday, to visit a sister, Mrs Demer, whom she had not seen for twenty-eight years. She and her sister are the only surviving members of a family of ten children. John D. Patterson of Cedar township, departed Tuesday morning for an extended trip through Kansas, Nebraska, and Colorado, on a land prospecting trip. He may make investments if he finds something to his j liking. • - The mails brought the following -message from Hartford, Kansas, concerning former well known Charlton people: "Born, to Mr. and Mrs. Edd " Borrell, on Sept. 10, a baby girl. , Mother is doing well and father very: proud." , J. H. Andrew went to St. Joseph,,^ Missouri, Saturday, called by the aerl^ ous illness of a ulster. John WhUagif joined them there Monday, and th'gjr" went over to Lawrence, Ki The customary services , will be held at St. Andrew's church next Sunday. The oldest is seventy- !
