transpired here this week when S. S.

to lien Uphotl", of Cedar Rapids, for a
half section of Iioone county land.
We did not learn what the consideration
was on either tract of land. We un
derstand that this deal mean that Mr.
and Mrs. CpboiFwill again take up a
residence in this community, but
whether or not it means that Mr. and
Mrs. Choat will leave here, we do not
know, but we would rather believe
that it will not.

purpose of ventilating the room and by the increase of the

two years ago. Something like nine
years ago he accompanied his mother

after going through the city schools

Alex McQueen returned last week

pany into action on Friday night last
to quench a fire which had started in
the old building formerly occupied by
A. M. Horton for a harness shop.
The fire evidently started in the floor
at the base of a boiler used by the
cream company. The fire had burned
through the east wall when discovered
and was shooting flames up between
the buildings, but was soonundei con
trol. As usual at similar fires the
greatest damage was done by water
j and wreckage. Max Venger, who oc-
jcupies the west half of the building as
a store house, suffered considerable
damage to his goods from water.
And the fire occured on Friday night

suggest that the city dads appoint a

on any particular person, when those

points to a successful advertisement
that must be made operative before it
can be successful. It must capture
the attentaion of the prospective cus

in his or her mind and it must after
wards bring conviction that the goods
are what they are represented to be
and that they are needed by the pros
pect. Lastly the advertisement must
cause the actual purchase of the goods.
Any man who has studied advertis

these principles in some sort of a way,
