Sioux CITY, lo., April 17.—There were but few persons in the courtroom when the judge asked the Haddock jury to report. Foreman E. P. Webster said that eleven of the jurors were agreed, hut that one stood somewhat stubbornly against the large majority. Juror O'Connell, who is a farmer living in Liberty township, arose and replied to this remark in a feeling manner. He said he did not wish to be considered a stubborn man, but that he had taken an oath before God and man to honestly determine the case as far as be was concerned and that he had endeavored to regard that obligation. If he were to remain in the jury's room a month he could not and would not change his opinion. Mr. Q'Connell's eyes filled with tears and his voice trembled from emotion. No one who heard him could doubt the since rity of his motives. Judge Lewis thereupon discharged the jury from further consideration of the case. Rumors from the jury- room revealed that the first ballot stood ten for acquittal and two for onviction. Tho FlcotliiR Cook. Hero is,a story on a certain class,.of mistresses—a class tlmt. is not numoiv oua, but is pfcqjiliiir to tho ranks of tin? "vulgar rich" who are so scorchingly described by QuiiUw A lady comos n, stranger to Buffalo, her husband an army ofllcetv ordered here ,on special duty. She at ouco breaks into housekeeping and deems herself fortunate,in 'securing a really good cook. One morning while rclleetiiig upon her I\i9k in finding such a kitcbon treasure—and she is a stranger in a strange place—she sees a lino 'establishment—splendid sloigh, fine horses, swell coacbman— drive up to her door. From the sleigh steps out a very handsome specimen of womanhood, elegantly costumed. Out anny woman, suspecting that she be made tho recipient of a little Buffalo welcome and hospitality, steps to the mirror, gives her bangs a little twist and prinks up hastily. She hoars the door-bell ring; soon after hears voices in the parlor. But thoro is no summons for her, ftndin five minutes, mgroi or loss, the superbly dressed visitor aforesaid leaves the house and drives 6ff. The'second girl being asked for an explanation, replies , that the lady asked to see the cook, and. that functionary soon informs hor army mistress that she. has had an offer of much higher wages-'if she will leave at once, and that the offer is top tempting to refuse. Protest is ineffectual, and wondering whether that Is the way of doing things in Buffalo, the discomfited house-keeper submits to the result anil goes put to hunt after v another cook. A few days pass, and the sloigh,^ the coachman and same elegant specimen of the. feminine gender, again come up to tho door,.and this time the lady of the house is certainly asked for. With some . rolucteanco and considerable smothered indignation she goes down, but is • soon disabused ..of any notion that the "lady" is going .to "make a call." She briefly explains her errand —admits that she is the woman who induced the cook to leave, and complains that she is in a "really awkward; positionj" for »• splendid cook who used to live Avith .her wants to come batik, and she, of course, feols under obligations to get the other cook n place, seeing that she urgetl her to leave. She, therefore, asks our army' woman if she is willing to, take back her original cook "as a personal favor." Bog pardon, reader. D;cl yon say "Well, I swear!"

"Seed Sowing." One of Henry Ward Boccher's latest sermons was on tho subject of "Seed Sowing." In closing, it would seem that he anticipated that he was nearing his end, when ho said: ' One man sows, and another reaps; but they shall rejoice together. The land of rejoicing is above and boyond. It is there that they meet who wcro unknown benefactors to each other. There they'who were but drops that fell into the river of life, which is the river of love, rccogni/.e each other.
