The Iowa Liberal
March 5, 1879
A ten-pound boy put in an appearance at the house of Thomas Stanton, in
Johnson township, last Friday.
We have it from the best authority that O. W. Bennett will not be a
candidate for the legislature this fall!
The second of Dr. W. B. Porter’s new houses will be for rent or sale in
about two weeks. Apply to the Doctor, at his office.
March has been coming in like a whole drove of lions, and if the old proverb
is worth anything the month should wind up with some fine weather.
Joe Gardner, the builder, has just completed a farm house for I. D. Smith,
Esq., three miles northeast of Remsen. The house is sixteen by twenty-two
feet, twelve foot posts.
Rev. Lozier and Deputy Sheriff McDonald are having a friendly tilt through
the columns of the Sioux City Journal. The letters written by these
gentlemen are about the most interesting matter now appearing the “only.”
Rev. J. Zimmerman, of Dakota City, Nebraska, colporteur of the American
Tract Society will preach in the M.E. church on Sunday morning March 9th, at
the usual hour. The pastor, Rev. H. W. Jones, will preach in the evening at
Last Saturday evening a temperance society was organized at the Pleasant
Valley school house by the energetic worker, Squire Fuller. Twenty-five
signers were obtained to the pledge, and the organizers are confident that
they can do good work in the near future.
ACCIDENT.—Last Saturday Kluckhohn & Loew’s delivery team became frightened
as they were passing up town, and ran away, upsetting the wagon to which
they were attached, and throwing Miss Kluckhohn, who was driving, heavily to
the ground, giving her some severe wounds and scars. Dr. Porter was called
and attended to the patient, who is now getting along quite comfortably.
A. F. Crandall has taken a position in T. E. Dunbar’s hardware,
agricultural implement and tin store, where his many friends will hereafter
find him. Dunbar is working up a big trade in all lines in which he deals,
first because he is a gentleman, secondly because his goods always turn out
as represented. In securing the services of Mr. Crandall, Mr. Dunbar has
made a wise move, and we congratulate him upon it.
R. Loew, who has been visiting in Michigan, has sold the right to
manufacture and sell Foskett’s patent ironing table in one county in that
State, and probably by this time he has disposed of the entire State. Four
counties in southwestern Iowa were sold last week for one hundred and fifty
dollars; and our friend J. F. Fairfax has about concluded to take Dubuque
county. The patent ironing table is a success, and persons seeking
profitable employment will do well to interview Mr. Foskett.
TO THE PUBLIC.
Here is something new and worth reading: I have started, in connection with
my clothing trade, a first-class merchant tailoring establishment, and have
in my employ Mr. Charles Zink, the well known cutter and tailor, as manager.
I will warrant every garment made by him. No slop work will be allowed in
making up, in sewing or fitting. None but the best trimmings put on garments
made by us; and for less money than every before known in LeMars or Sioux
City. We have one hundred new and stylish patterns to select
from—consisting of the handsomest pieces of French and English worsteds,
Scotch goods, and all other foreign and domestic cloth. Don’t fail to give
me a call; it will be to your interest. In these hard times, when money
saved is money earned.
