Honestly, Mr. Democrat, don’t

Next to lie an umpire we would

personal of our present city ad

city’s history. The members are
giving of their time and talents
freely and are earning and re
ceiving the thanks of the com

and unconsequeutial exceptions.
Our ball team must be main

ball club it would probably be no

Its about time for republicans

Louie Grouch, editor of the
Journal and Dean of the guild

under democratic management.
Louie is always funny when ser

to inquire what republican tick

ten years? Does he think he can
bury bis head in the sand and
hide the fact that his paper is
owned by the democratic office
holders in this county. We say
owned not from the fact that
they have any particular title to
Louie, but. that they own his
paper by buying and paying for
it. Under democratic manage

hardships suffered in the union
army which made an outdoor

small farm in llenton county,
Iowa, twenty-five miles from a
railroad. Here the subject of

district school in the winter and

practice grew rapidly. During
the twenty-five years following

to legal writing, publishing in
1890 the “Law of Replevin”,
which ha 1 been about two years
in prepanrtion. This work was
well received by the profession
and was soon recognized as the
leading t<■ xt book on this diffi
cult subject, which position it
still holds. A second edition was
published in 1900.
The “Law of Chattel Mortga

1893. 'Phis is comprehensive and
the only two volume work ever
published on this subject.
