S.L Marsh returned from his investigating and prospecting Dakota trip Tuesday night, greatly delighted with the country and general prospects.  There is a good chance to take up homesteads there now, as well as to buy good farm lands cheap.  Vet has taken the agency for the sale of some of this land and it is expected that he will leave the 19th again with a party of home seekers or prospective real estate buyers for that country.


Just as we were going to press last week, C.W. Chubb of Lynn came into the office, having in his hands a box which we made mental note was a box containing a pair of new shoes.  He visited a few minutes, talking about the weather, the prospects for hunting, the coming county fair, etc., etc., and departed, leaving his as we supposed, new shoes.  We made a jump, grabbed up the shoes and then the box gave, the cover was loose and we peeped in when such a beautiful sight met our eyes and the delightful aroma filling our nostrils, we carefully set the box down and then, well!  Mr. Chubb was out of hearing.  When we had finished our run and had gotten our papers to the post office and Mr. Chubb not returning, we tell to open the box and feasted upon some of the most delightful apples that "ever happened."  We tried to save them for fear they haven’t been meant for us’ but we dreamed of them, woke in the night and thought of them, ate them upon rising and now all that remains of them is memory.
