Joseph P. Lastotka, who went to Caledonia, Ill., last spring to take charge of a stock farm, returned home to Clark county Tuesday morning. It is surmised that when he went away in the spring he left a sweetheart behind and suspecting a long cold siege he has come back home to claim this sweetheart and protect her from the chilling blasts of winter.

FOUNDRYMAN TAPLIN LIKELY TOMOVE SOUTH: Our fellow townsman, W. W. Taplin, the foundryman, returned home last week Wednesday from a two week’s trip through the south, where he went with the intention to look up a place to locate his foundry business. He says that he will go to Norfolk, Virginia, as soon as he can dispose of his property here satisfactorily, as there is a great deal more business going on there than here in the Northwest and that it would be a better location here for his business on account of it being a seaport town. That country, he says, is a better one for a person who has a trade or profession, but not for the laboring man, as there are so many negroes who do the common labor. Farmers are flocking to that section of the country from the west and northwest, where they have been starved out by the poor crops and still poorer prices. Market gardeners were planting their celery, cauliflower, etc., while he was there. We shall be sorry to see Mr. Taplin and his family leave us, but wish him success and prosperity wherever he goes.
