THE MAZEPPA TRIBUNE was founded Oct. 27,1877 by M. Schram, thus entering this week upon its eighteenth year of continuous publication. Some time ago the numbering became change, so that it becomes necessary to make the correction, which is done this week,changing it from Vol. 18,No. 35 to Vol. 18,No.l. Under the present management THE TRIBUNE has prospered beyond expectation, as it now has a circulation of about 200 more bona fide subscribers than ever, it has had, and these have been added in the short space of ten months---a marvelous record for a country paper.
The Republican county convention unanimously selected a Mazeppaite to head their county ticket by putting Mr. A J . Allison on for auditor. Mr. Allison has been a consistent Republican all his life and this recognition of his past services for the party is not amiss. He is making a lively and active personal canvass of the county, which will very likely land him a winner by a handsome majority.
For about eight years past Mr. Allison has been a resident of Mazeppa and in the 1umber business. At this time he is the head of the A J . Allison Lumber Company and by his integrity and pleasant dealing has built up a good business. Mazeppa will vote strongly for Allison. Chester and the surrounding towns will also give him a good strong vote. Allison is gaining ground throughout the county at all the points he has visited and if he receives a majority of the votes on Tuesday none need be surprised.
[Mike's note: AJ . Allison built a house on the property of Lisa Tri]
