To begin again, Silas Perkins, K. C. 0., has just reported to (lie Cedar Grove Board of Poultry Trade the explosion and utter annihilation of his prize duck Kradamanthus. blew up at 7:10 this morning jlist us the Ksaox Kulls Cannon Hall Accommodation stopped at the Great Notch water tank. A stiff northerly gale was blowing at the time and five dark brown duck feathers were wafted even so far as Great Notch and fluttered Into tile open window of the smoker of that nimble Erie railroad train.

adamantlius was no ordinary or 1eiv duck. He was a Keokuk duck of the 'famous breed that Prank Rue has bfen cultivating with such success. He was a grandson of Nebuchadnezzar, the famous fortune telling duck that predicted for Its owner and proprietor, Mr. Kue, the early discovery of the north pole. This was ufter Nebuchadnezzar had wawtored Int.i the icebox In George Meier's grocery storo, where he was imprisoned for the night.

He came Jionie a trifle stiff and a bit blue about the lips and the very first thing he did was to mount upon a clothes prop and point his bill to the north. The (iilrk wltted Mr. Hue Immediately read this as on the paTt of Nebuchadnezzar that the north pole hud been discovered; three weeks later Cook was heard from. To return to the Kliadatnanthus. It must be now apparent that rare duck blood ran In his veins.

SI Perkins Is said to have paid handsomely for the setting of Keokuk duck eggs from which Hhadamanthu was hatched. Rhadaman-thus was the only drake In the setting. He broke rrom his shell two days before his five sifters emerged and uttered a vigorous nuaclf the moment he thrust his bill into the world. MUed Fried Potatoes. niiadamanthus was uniquely marked.

His' tail was brown, he had one blue wing and a red diamond on his brow. He swam In the Kue duck pond at the age of SO hours and when only five days old brought A minnow from the pond and presented it to his foster mother. 81 Perkins became greatly attached to Rhailamantbus, naming him after his wife's rich uncle, RhadamanthuB Me.Otl-llcuddy, the Thumb Point chiropodist. Great care was taken with this duck's diet. When -he evinced a strong desire for French fried potatoes and seemed to thrive on them.

Mr. Kue saw that he was supplied with a liberal portion on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. It will be recalled by all those who follow the big affairs In Cedar Grove that- a bitterness Was engendered between Si Perkins end Rollo Rollins, over the naming of their Indian game roosters ook and Peary, which culminated in a battle between the two fighting fowl. Rollins' Peary at first got the decision over Cook, but Perkins protested the de- Islon and hired Lawyer Dave Gouge to nlead his case. This resulted in a re versal of the verdict in favor of Peary and the naming of Perkins' Cook as the victor.

Naturally this did not tend to soften Hollo Rollins' animosity toward Perkins. He vowed he would get even and It would seem that he has done so. Evidence at had tends to show that Hollb llolllns was responsible for the explosion and destruction of Rhadamanthus. Perkins has done some blowing about town over the decision In favor of his rooster. Cook.

On top of this he has been puffing up Rhadamanthus as the ne plus ultra of Cedar Grove ducks, belittling by comparison each and every duck In Hollo Rollins' duckery. Then to rub It In he brought Rhadnmanthus to the last meeting of the Cedar Grove Board of Poultry trade and passed a resolution through in which Rhadamanthus wax proclaimed as the longest-billed and hrownest-talli-d duck along the Great Notch trail of the File. While this was going on Rollo Rollins glowered from his chair In the board room, gnashed his teeth and snore vengeance. Yesterday afternoon Rollins bought a rake of yeast In Gus Meier's grocery store. He asked for and got i moldy looking oaks of yeast; a cake of yeast that was tied twice about with cord to prevent Its bursting Its wrapper.

Exploded in Midair. "There's good raising power in this yeast?" asked Rollins before he purchased It. "That cake of yeast," replied Gus Meier, wno used to be a sailor, "would raise the Lusitunia if she sank in eighty lathoms." Rollins bought the yeast and went fortli Into the crisp twilight of lust evening, Witnesses have testified that he passed the fence that girdles the Perkins' duck yard; likewise that he stopped at said fence and uttered enticing clucks. A little later he was seen walking briskly home, humming a sprightly tune. Still later Perkins made his nightly tour of his yurd to count his ducks.

He noticed that Hhadamanthus was sitting ONLY ONE Unhappy is tltp man or woman with a 1 backache. No rest, no sleep, no peace at 4 all.

WEBSTER CITY, Jan. K. E. Richardson, who has Just been appointed by Governor Carroll to the state board of health to succeed Dr. A.

Linn of De Moines, has been a leading practitioner In Webster City since coming here nearly ten years ago from Sheldon. Dr. Richardson will serve as a member of the board from the Fourth district. He Is still a young man, being hut 40 years of age. It has been nearly fifteen years, however, since he graduated from his medical school.

Though bom In Wisconsin, Dr. Richardson Is essentially an Iowa product. The most of his boyhood was spent In Ida Grove, where his parents now reside. He graduated from the public schools of Ida Orove and dls diploma Is signed by John h. Bleakly, then president of the board of education of that town, now-auditor of state.

Dr. Richardson studied on a box outside his special roop and that he was nibbling something with apparent relish. Perkins patted hi favorite duck on the head and re-entered his cottage. It was not until 6:30 o'clock this morning that Perkins saw Rhadamanthus again. Looking out from his bedroom window, he noticed a strange commotion In his duckery.

Drakes and lady ducks were flapping their wings in alarm. Ducklings were quacking In panic. Perkins rushed down to the yard to discover the cause of this Btrange pother. The moment ho opened the door he fell back with an exclamation of dismay. There was Rhadamanthus floating In the air six feet above the ground, flapping his flippers pathetically and uttering wistful quacks.

Rhadamanthus was Ave times his Usual size and round as a balloon. His wings did not move and he floated gently wherever the wind wafted him. He was mounting slowly In the air, growing larger by the minute. He floated up and up, Perkins' eyes following him in petrified dismay. Suddenly, as the duck gained the level of the second story window there was a terrific-report that flung Perkins on his back.

The air was filled with feathers and Infinitesimal fragments of duck. Rhadamanthus had burst and was no more. The poor chap's bill was found later In front of the Thumb Point town hall. Past In the Jaws of the bill was the telltale wrapper of the yeast cake Rollo Rollins had bought from Gus Meier. This evidence will be offered as exhibit A In a threatened suit to be brought agalnsf Rollins by Perkins.

LIFTING POWER OF A MAN Method Used to Test Strength at Different Ages. LONDON, Jan. to excellent authority, the muscles, In common with all organs of the human body, have their periods of development and decline, our physical strength increasing up to a certain age and then decreasing. Tests of the strength of several thousand Individuals have been made and the following figures are given as the averages derived from the tests. The lifting power of a youth of 17 Is 2S0 pounds; in his 20th year this Increases to 302 pounds and In the 30th and 31st years it reaches its height, 365 pounds.

At the expiration of the 31st yoar the strength begins to decline, very gradually at first. By the 40th year It has decreased eight pounds and diminution continues at a slightly Increasing rate until the 60th year Is reached, when the figure Is 3.10 pounds. Subsequent to this period strength falls more and more rapidly until the weakness of old age is reached. It is found Impossible to obtain trustworthy statis RICHARDSON. medicine at the Iowa state university, graduating in 1890 from the homeopathic school.

Later this partnership was dissolved. Dr. Richardson's candidacy for the state board of health was launched last summer by the State Homeopathic Medical association in session at Waterloo.

The board is composed of seven allopaths and four homeopaths and it was a homeo path who was to be named at the next vacancy. The state association asked Gov ernor Carroll to choose between Dr. Richardson of this city and Dr. Kaufmann of Lake City. Dr.

Jan. 1. The ad vance in value of rare American gold coins Is strikingly manifested by a com parison of the prices paid recently and In the period between 1SH0 and 18H5. For some reason collectors formerly took lit tle Interest In coins struck In gold. It was not that the Investment required was too great, for they paid high prices for the early rare American cents, but they simply did not seem to fancy gold coins, and what are now considered rarities went for the proverbial song.

One of the best Illustrations of the advance is shown by the price brought this year by the two unique $50 gold pieces for which W. H. Woodln of New I York paid the world's record price, or J10.000 each. Veteran dealers In coins declare that It Is by no means an exaggeration to say that. Iii1877, the year of the Issue of the $50 piece Just mentioned, very few collectors would have bought them at their bullion value In gold for $100.

This statement is borne out by the records of coin sales In the latter part of the seventies. Some of the rarest of the gold pattern coins, in which series the $50 pieces are classed, sold then for little more than face value. Now the same coins would bring a hundred times as much. One of the rarest of American gold coins Is the $5 gold piece made by the private minting firm of Dubosq at San Francisco, In 1S50. In 1884 a specimen of this coin offered In auction brought only $6.40.

That was the last and the only time the Dubosq $5 piece has been offered for sale. As a matter of fact, the specimen sold is the only one of which there Is any record. Even the mint cabinet at Philadelphia does not contain one of these pieces. It Is not known 'where this solitary specimen Is now. Its value can only be guessed at.

A specimen of the New York gold doubloon, made by Ephralm Brasher In 1787, which holds a record of $5,200, broughtt only In 1889 when the col lection of R. C. Davis was disposed of at auction, while several years previously, at the Bushnell sale in 1882. an equally well preserved specimen sold for $505. Company Is Beaten.

For House Wear In Thin Fabru-Siiita for Streets Have Skirts ith Three Huffles. PHILADELPHIA, Jan.

1. Will frilly skirts soon be In fashion? This Is the question the designers ask of themselves. There Is no one to answer the question, but If surmise Is correct then the spring will see ruffles from hip to hem. Paquln Is the originator of many things unil possibly It Is her ardor of creating new styles, or rather ringing tho changes upon the old ones, that has made her bring out the ruffled skirt. Hh made several of these for Geraldlne Far-rar, who dresses wonderfully well.

They are not stage gowns and therefore they have some fashion Importance. They are of changeable fabric, tlie kind that Is shot through with Iridescent colors, an the frills begin at tlie hip and end at the hem. They aro about five Inches deep, some merely hemmed, others edged with bullion braid or lace. Miss Farrar haB exceedingly slender figure and can stnnd this bouffant stylo of dressing. She was a delightful picture the other night as Charlotte in Her gowns In that opera were graceful and lovely, and she knows how to wear a certain style of clothes and put them on with ah air of distinction.

Madame Paquin Is herself doubtful as to whether the frilly skirt will be accepted as a leading fashion or even as a popular one. Personally she like them very much, and there are dozens of women who do. It may be that this kind of gown will work Its way slowly into the fashions and becomo a favorite before we are aware that It has really arrived. Many kinds of costume have done this, unheralded by a bare of trumpets or any heraldic announcement. One thing in favor of these flounced and furbelowed skirts is that the modern fabrics can easily be draped Into fulness without the figure gaining any seeming size.

In days of stiff materials any suggestion of more than one flounce added to a skirt was sure to be met with disapproval by tlie stout woman, but today conditions are different. First, women wear so few underclothes and these are of such slight dimensions, and linings are so supple, waist so large and fabrics so sheer that one can permit any style to come In fashion without fretting about it tendency to enlarge the figure. The tunic, for Instance, 1 bulky with Its drapery around the ankles, Its festooning above the knees. Its gathers at the waist and Its Immence belt, yet It is worn by all figures with crace and dignity. Whatever the reasons for and against the frilled skirt, It looks as though It would be launched In the spring.

Whether It takes a grip on the public Is quite another question. Already there are cloth suits with short coats and skirts holding three circular ruffles on a silk foundation. As these are worn minus petticoats or another lining, and the salting itself 1 supple, the effect Is slender and graceful. Such a skirt looks out of place with a long coat, and Its advent looks as though the short coat were gradually winning it way. Most shrewd observer think that we are rapidly but unconsciously passing out of the styles that have held us In thrall for the Inst two yeirs and which are giving way to tlie slowly rising tide of conventional clothe.

OLDEST DWELLING IN U. S. It Whs liesim Hy lie Koto in IYM to Protect Havana, HAVANA, Jan. 1. Facing the Plaza de Armas, between the senate building, when the advisors commission Is In ses- shin, and the Havana postnfflce, Is La Ftierea (the fort).

It Is the oldest Inhabited building in the western hemisphere. Other forts and some convents In Santo Domingo antedate It, but they are broken ruins now. while La Fueiza Is of service, still as a storehouse and barracks for tlie Rural guards. Work rn La Fuerza was begun about IMS by Hernando de Soto, tlien governor of Culm tlie same who explored the Mississippi valley and found his grave In the dark waters of its great river. It was built to protect Havana against pirates.

It was almost completed In 1514 when tlie royal order went forth that It should be Fainted by war ships entering thereafter. It was for years the official residence of the captains and generals of- the Island. When, In 1333. De Huto sailed away to explore the unknown to tlie northward, ho left In command his bride, tiie lAidy Ixabelie Hobadiila, "lik" her mother a wonun of character and kindly disposition, of very excellent judgment and appearance." For four years she awaited his return, scanning tlie sea, they say, from a window in tlie tower. When at last the remno-nts of her husband's armada returned to tell her of his fate, her heart bruke and she died.

1 All the flags save one captured from the enemy In the Wilderness were taken by western regiments. The Twenty-fourth Michigan captured the colors of the Forty-eighth Virginia, the Fifth Wisconsin those of the Twenty-fifth, tlie Twentieth Indiana those of the Fifty-fifth, the Seventh Indiana those of the Fiftieth Virginia, the lilfth Michigan those of the Thirteenth North Carolina. The Eighth Ohio and Fourteenth Indiana retook Hlckett's guns. "The men from the west were probably no braver man for man than those of tha east, says a writer In the Atlantic Monthly, "but I think their success was wliolly because so many of the men were woods wise. From their youth up, both by day and night, they had roamed through wood under all sorts of sky and In all sort of weather, and- their depth had no terror for them.

Like their enemies, they were at home in the timber and could make their way through It almost as well by night as by day. I have often thought that perhaps It was this common knowledge of the woods that gave our western armies so many victories. A confederate line coming on or rising up suddenly and breaking Into their harp, fierce yells did not greatly surprise or et them quaking. And yet although all my, boyhood was passed in the grandly deep, primeval forests of Ohio, 1 am free to own that 1 never heard that rebel yell In the woods of Virginia that its old field behind did not seem at once to become mightily attractive."
