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.

Matt Freilinger has sold his Seneca farm of 200 acres to Theo. Chrischilles of Algona and will move to

Washington in the spring. He has rented the Butler residence property in the west part of town for the

winter and will move into it next week. Nick Haver and wife will move into Freilinger's former residence

next week, when they will start house keeping.

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

come back and make this county their home and we are inclined to think they have a leaning that way.

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.
