Edison hns made some experiments upon the eyes of blind persons, with the x-rays, which wns quite patisfactory. Mr. Edison Stty» he irjtt-nda to keep up the tests until he davelopes something of value. The extent of these tests cannot ns yet be even guessed at, but Edisou }8 the man to follow them up. There is talk of a free silver daily Des Moiueu, with Millionaire Heas=t, of the New York Journal, as publisher, and J. lielangee and Colonel Fox, of this city, as editors. Messrs Bellangee.and Fox arn ready to do the editing whenever Hearst puts up the money. Mr. Hearst isn't ex- peoted in tho city soon to look ovei the ground,—Saturday Review. the world, but when wr.-mgly used is n curse to mankind. Wo hops tluit our nation may never stoop to use her power to do n dishonorable deed.

Name the colors of tho rainbow. Of what ire corks made? Spell out the pro innoiation ot Arkansas. What day is usually sot apart for our annual thanksgiving? By whom is it up- pointed? What is the circumference of a circle 10 feet in diameter? (The above are a fair sample of tho questions referred loo.—Ed.) Hie three girle, supposed to be Ella Miller, Lena Hcndricksou and Carrie Newhart, who escaped from the. In- •lustrial school of Mitchollvllle Wednesday night and were captured here but refused to stay captured, have not returned. They were found in a fleld south of town by J. A. Cloid and Tomp Ersklne about uoou Tuesday and were turned over to Constable McKmncy, who afterward turned them over to a young man by ihe name of Rookcy, arrived from Mitchellvillo in search of them, The young man apparently was not much acquainted with girls, or at least this kind of girls, for he stood with in 20 feet of them when they raibod a window at the hotel and crawled out. This was in broad daylight, about 4 o'clock p. m., but aside from being seen going m different directions nboul town' they wero as completely gone aa a last year's icicle or the hope of Bryan's election. Spain is having a mighty stru now with tho lebellious Cubans, predict that if Cuba comes out U victory from this battle th jig is about up with Spain.

Old Man Forbes has reappeared in Jasper county. He is a wandering eccentric man, who has for years 'terrorized tho woman and children of his nnd other adjacent counties ..... Many strangers are notleneble on our streets of late. Everyone seems to be in quest of a location for some kind of business. Our merchants should receive hero at home the sup port of our towns people ..... . Some jolly souls living out of a tow miles left their team in the street a few evenings since while they went into a sample room to "see a friend." But those horses wore wicked. We know they wove wicked because "the wicked fleeth when no man pursucth;" and these horses fled in a manner that was a caution to Benny Franklin's ightning. Th« boys walked seveiul iles eyes hnn returned home much im proved. Dipthcria is guile prevalent in this vicinity. On Wednesday Nov. 4, two of John Wartberg's children took down. Thev both died on Sunday tho 8lh. Since then Munde Gun- mn<:h:im took down but is recovering. Other* thfit Jiavn boon exposed arc anxiously wailing their turn of Ihe dread disease. The Board of Health of J'jlkliart have posted notices to hold no public gatherings of any kind any hind at present. The R.liO'jIs Imvii nil closed and quaran tine regulations am the order of the day, J)r. Cht-rrie, of Ankcny is attending 1(10=10 cases. Wo hop"3 the c.iscs will be few and far between Our sympathies are with those that have BiiU'ered from its awful work. O1TH IA Stale, superintendent Sabin has just issued n circul.-ir to boards of education warning them that certain par- tics gi'-ing about Ihe country claiming to have, his em'torsi-mont for stilii'ol apparatus, :iro, misrei'rcHcnt- ing and that the department of iu- struclion never recorjmemis iippaiu- lus under any tircumaianccs. In addition to this he f.!»yn: \\'c wish especially to caution ycu against the pracliC'. 1 of signing n contract for niupn, charts, or other apparatus under any. circumstances, presuming upon the riaHic.ition of tho puroli!i-;o at a nubsoquent mecli.jg of the board. Such practice is clearly illegal and should never occur. Governor l>ruko has issued a formal cull for the meeting of the legislature on January 19, 1897. In his call ho speaks of tile necessity for tho rebuilding of tho institute, for the feeble minded at Glcnwood, which was burned down last summer. The object of the son&ion, however, ia tho codification of the laws of the state. [l would be u great loss to tho state to have tha work already done on tho code 'lost. Considerable excitement has been created by the report being spread abroad that tlalo sciaolnry elect Dobson will change the entire force in his olflee. Thw report, however, Mr. Dobson does not conflim, though ho does not demy at. Doubtless there will bo fcomo change mndo, for "Seme must watch while some must wocp, ?o runs tho world away." Local railroad agents report freights as having fallen oil' in amount nearly fifty per cent in the last two weeks, owing to tho rise in rates; il will, however, very likely, soon advance on account, of advancing prices. The program for tho Iowa State Teachers' Association is out and is a strong one. This will bo the forty- second session find is expected to be the largest gathering of teachers over held in the state. The Iowa fire insurance companies nro going about like Damocles of old, with a sworJ suspended over their heads with a huir. Since the Blunchurd anti-compact wont into effect they hiivu been in constant danger of loosing their business, and of being driven out by a general rate cutting by eastern companies. This occurred ia California, und may occur in Iowa. By it insurers would get very low rates till our Iowa coin- panicrjBpjiro gone, mid then such rates ffirthe custom companies were pleased to give them. Lot u« stick to lowu institutions where wo know them to be sound. t ri >f ' »~ "j-i r *• ¥ ,-OV r iu ta^wfilk.TwhMi AND VIGIKITX. Albradd Mathis and. family of Des Moines are vlsitiug with J. H.
