Word comes from Youkon, Oklahoma, that LOU A. CHAMBERS who was born and raised in Lucas County, near LaGrange, was the successful nominee of the democratic party for sheriff over three other good substantial contestants in that county. LOU has the size and ability to make the Oklahoma people and the democratic party a worthy and faithful officer.
The excavation for the new two story, double building for the K.of P. and I.O.O.F. lodges is done.
The contractors, Teas & Stevens of Chariton, state that they will move to Pleasantville with their families in about two weeks, and will make this place their home until the building is completed. At present they are building a new school house at Carlisle, replacing that which was destroyed by fire in the spring.
W.H. DECKER, who went from this county to Regina, Canada, has moved to Moose Jaw in the Saskatchewan district, where he has taken charge of a steam plowing outfit. In a letter to the Herald he says: "We pull nine 14 inch plows at a depth of about four inches and make about 24 to 25 miles a day when it is not wet. But for the past two or three weeks we have been having too much rain for my work. Crops are looking fine. Prospects for a bumper crop are number one. I hope they are as good in old Iowa."
