Mrs. Barnet Devine who is back in the county visiting relatives for a couple of months, was in town last
Saturday. She would like to spend the winter here with her children, but she fears that she could not stand
the cold weather as she used to do. She likes to live at Pomona but would like it better if she were not so far
from her relatives. She thinks California is all right for old people who have money to live on but does not
think it a good place for those who are compelled to work for a living.

Mr. and Mrs. Barney Devine expect to leave for their California home next week. We hope they will finally

The Bancroft Register says: "Matt Freilinger arrived here Wednesday evening, looking sound and well after
his winter spent in the fatherland. He sailed on March 10, coming the north route and stopping off in
Canada. While he spent a pleasant winter amid the scenes of his boyhood days in Luxemburg, he found
fewer old friends than he expected, and would not under any circumstances make his home there again."

will move his family to Algona as soon as the house is vacated by its present tenant, Mr. Morgan of the
Iowa Central. The property sold for $1550 spot cash and was a great bargain at that figure.
