Charley Armstrong has made his trip to California and has stuck his stake there and will move out ere long. He bought a lot and bungalow next door to John Smith’s, and is very much please with his purchase. Before buying he went up the state to San Francisco and to other places, but he found it too foggy up that way to suit him, and so concluded to settle in Santa Monica. He found a man who was just in the humor for selling and he got a bargain, being worth at least $3500 he got it for $2700. He says Mr. and Mrs. Smith are enjoying life in an ideal manner. They live eight blocks from the sea, and the fishing is good and Mr. Smith makes the most of it. Deer and other game may be had in the mountains five miles from there. Mr. Armstrong expects to take his sisters with him, and for a short time they will all live in the bungalow. We wish them every happiness, but are sorry they leave Kossuth county.
