He desires to sell his property here, and will return in a few weeks to make California his permanent home. He reports his wife and family in good health and well pleased with a country where you can have fresh strawberries every day in the year. Our people will regret the loss of Mr. and Mrs. Bradshaw from our society.

Mrs. T. M. Alexander, with her daughter and son left on Monday morning for their old home in Houston County, Minn. Mr. Alexander remains here a little longer in the employ of W. S. Colburn.

But as they must return to their old home, many kind wishes will go with them. Mrs. A. will spend a few days with a brother in La Crosse.
