N monday last for the first Lime in ten months we paid a visit to Tho county scat remaining Over until tuesday afternoon. Tho town was very Dull for Waukon the Farmers being nil Busy in their Fields As Thoy Are everywhere this Cek. Spring Emo on with such a ush this year thut it took the Farmers by Surprise. There having been no rain Tho Fields Wero dry enough to work As soon As the Frost was out deep enough and the summer heat of the past few Days was sufficient to place everything in first class order for seeding. While the Waukon business men arc not fully satisfied with Tho volume of Winter business they generally agree that there is a perceptible shango for the belter in momentary prospects and that there is a Promise of better times head than to. Have had for the Post three years though they Havo Little Faith that a very sensible increase will be experienced before fall or it least before this season s crop is assured. Tho merchants there feel a Little sore because our merchants have sold goods so cheap during the Winter and Spring that their Trade hns been trenched upon to a considerable extent. No Boom is apparent at Waukon this Spring but a Good Many improvements will be made during the reason. There As Well As in Postville there is no room for any Moro business houses. In fact there arc a few now vacant in used by the closing of the saloons. Aud by Tho Way the saloons arc closed i in Waukon. But one place that was a Saloon is open and that is a billiard room and ton pin Alloy. The proprietor is under injunction to sell no intoxicating liquors. But although the saloons Are closed there is still considerable drunk news. There is said to be one or two drug stores that Aro but Ono remove from saloons and these must be disposed of before Temperance can be said to be triumphant in Waukon. It is unjust to close the saloons and let drug store saloons continue to run and they will Como to grief soon. If we arc to have prohibition let us Havu it pure and simple giving no one a monopoly of the business except is the Law authorizes pharmacists to sell it strictly for medicinal purposes. Then the people can very soon determine whether they want the Law or not. We had a very pleasant visit with Ginny old friends Aud acquaintances including the newspaper men county Foll Cills and Many others including l. Armstrong col. Stewart Doc Bowen jus. Duffy Jas. Holahan Doc. Earle l. Hubbell Geo. Hewit Johnny Minort Dayton & Dayton and others too no morons to mention.
