The city of Winterset will now have a new engine house and city hall. Our peopleare more progressive than some of the croakers would have us believe.
Administration Notice: Edward D. BRADSHAW; David BRADSHAW, administrator.
We have observed the new plat of the addition of 1886 to the Winterset Cemetery. It is certainly laid out with much taste, and when properly shaded, will go farto relieve the natural gloom of the city of the dead.
William MEKEMSON, of Jacksonville Township, who last fall pled guilty of forgery,and was sentenced to the penitentiary for one year, has been pardoned by Gov. LARRABEE. This certainly is a case in which executive clemency was rightly used.
