He says: Gestlemex: Replying to your com munication of February 21th: In con sideration of the fact that due notice and ample time was given you to fur nish us in writing, over the signatures of ten responsible men, with yourselves included, a proposition for the location of the terminus of our contemplated interurban route, and in consideration of the fact that nn such proposition was submitted, it was voted at a meeting of our board of directors, held in Waverly, Iowa, March lth, 181)7, that we accept the only proposition at our is made wing iaiu will be put in at the head of the cutoff to turn the current of the river iuto its original bed. The track will reach the river near the J. E. Wyaut cottage, and the bridg-iug will begin there. Thf llrlilg. The Universal Construction Co., of Chicago, will furnish the materials for the construction of the bridge. The bridge will be erected by J. B. Marsh, of Des Moines, who has had much experience in bridge making, under the supervision of liobert Anderson, formerly superintendent of buildings, bridges and filer supply, of the Chicago, Great Western railway. The order has been placed with the Universal Construction Co., aud the material will be on the ground by the 1st of April. Work on the bridge will then commence at once.

It is going by the Cedar River park route. It is going through Rownd's park, It will have a terminus in Cedar Falls and a depot very close to Main street, either on First or Second streets, The Courier is at liberty this even ing to state the above facts, and it desires to state them emphatically, so that there shall no longer be talk or idle rumors in regard to the extension of the interurban line of the Waterloo & Cedar Falls Rapid Transit Co. A reporter for the paper had a short but interesting talk with Mr. RaiFerty last evening in bis office. He bad just come from a consultation with the committee of east side business men who had been instrumental in preparing an agreement which had been signed by both sides. By the terms of this agreement the extension of the line is to be from what is now the east end terminus, and the route through the Cedar River park and on across the river and up to Ce dar Falls is to be by the lines of the survey completed by City Engineer Newton yesterday. There seems to be no serious objections in the way of fol lowing this plan, but should there be on account of trouble in procuring right of way, the change will necessa rily be but slight. On Monday evening last the direc tors of the Rapid Transit Co. held a meeting in Waverly. There were present at this meeting Messrs. J. F. and L. S. Cass, J. II. Rafferty and C. J. Fossel man. The affairs of the company were largely gone over at this meeting, and it was voted unanimously to accept a proposition which had been tendered them by a committee representing the citizens of East Waterloo, it being the only proposition before them and be ing fair and simple in its statements. Contract 1 Signed. The contract as accepted provides at once for a loan of $35,000 on a bond is- construction. When the road is com pleted to Cedar Falls and the entire system is in operation a bond issue of $ 100,000 will be made and the agreement is to secure for the company $93,000 or pay a bonus of $6,000. That is, in a nutshell what takes the road to the east side route. A talk with several west side business men this morning shows that they are perfectly satisfied with the decision of the company. The route chosen is one of the most picturesque as well as the most feasible that could have been selected. The contract does not inveigh against the west side, in the least, and does not favor either side above the other, as can be seen by the following letter from President Cass, of the Transit Co., written to the committee of west side business men who had charge of the presenting of a proposition and who presented and afterwards supplemented it with the following letter: , . February 24, 1897. To Hie Waterloo and Cedar Falls Rapid - Transit Co., Waterloo, Iowa. Gentlemen: On February 12th, 1897, certain citizens of Waterloo, named as parties of the second part in a certain contract entered into with you on Nov. ICth, 1890, agreed with you for a modification of said contract, a type written copy of said modifications as understood by said parties of the second part having been delivered to you February ICth, 1897. The additional temporary loan of $20,000 provided for in said modifications has been pledged by responsible citizens of Waterloo, of which you had notice February 19th, 1897. At a meeting of the citizens who guaranteed said loan, we were appointed a committee to notify you that if there is anything in these contracts that can be construed to prevent you from operating your interurban cars across the Cedar river at Waterloo into East Waterloo and to Cedar River park, it may be eliminated. And the parties of the second part are ready and willing at any tirfe to take up, discuss and settle any of the minor details of said modified contract with your company, and that in accordance with a verbal agreement made with you prior to any negotiations the parties of the second part decline to make you The COURIER'S solution of the troublesome Dry Run problem is to elevato the stream and arrange ... . . . .. . .

I wish to advise you, however, that it is the desire and intention of our company, to at all times in the future, as we have in the past, do as much for the one side of the river, as we will for the other, all things considered, lours truly, L. S. Cass, President. Waterloo, Iowa, March 12, 1897. Mr. Rafferty says there is nothing in the talk that the cars are so large that it will be necessary to transfer passengers at the east end of the bridge. An engineer will be employed to test the bridge and if it is found safe and will stand the weight the interurban cars will make the full circuit of the line without change or transfer. The four electric coaches which will be put in on the new line are the perfection of beauty and elegance. They are the product of the Pullman Palace Car Co. The cars are forty -six feet in length, vestibuled at both ends, and will seat forty-eight people. The seats are arranged simiuar to a railway , solid steel. Three spans, each 100 feet in length will rest upon steel caissons filled with concrete. A 10-foot approach at each end makes the structure .150 feet in length. It will be strongly built, designed to carry 2,500 pounds per lineal foot, which is sufficient to carry an ordinary freight train. Linn Will bo itunlie.l. Work on the extension will be begun at as early a day as possible. The only delay now will be for the weather to settle. After crossing the river aud the B., C. Ii. & N. track the line will be turned toward Cedar Falls and will for some distance run parellel with the railroad track; gradually turning a little to the west and mounting the bluffs by easy ascent, reaching Rownd's property at the southern limit and travers ing this 100 acres of wonderful tract of natural park, will find its way into Cedar Falls at the foot of 11th street, going directly past the power house of the Cedar Falls company. From there it will reach First street to the north and the State Normal school at the south.

Rafferty and Cass met with the Park Board association and a committee of which F. O. Piatt is chairman and C. O. lialliett and C. F. Fowler members, was appointed by the board to make a contract with the company and arrange the right of way through the park. The road is now completed to the northeastern entrance to the grounds. It was agreed that the park association should appropriate $500 towards aiding in filling the cut off. After the filling ! right of way through the grounds so that the cars can run, direct to the main buildings. In Cedar Falls a fine passenger station will be built. The site is chosen, and it will be convenient to the business section of the town. The contract for all gradidg has been let to Geo. T. Lehniann, of Waterloo, peaceful and mild mannered gentleman himself, is an ardent admirer of Cor bett, for he believes with our friend John Gannon, that "every manly man and every manly woman" ought to be interested in the manly art. On comparing notes Mr. Fish found that his dog both outweighed and outmeasured Fitzsimmons', so on the impulse of the moment he wrote to Mr, Corbett, telling him of his dog and that if he would give Fitzsimmons a real good thrashing he would make him a present of the dog, sending it to him in any part of the United States. i esterday morning Mr. t ish was both surprised and gratified to receive a reply from Mr. Corbett in the pugilist's own hand writing. Mr. Corbett writes what would be called a cramped, nervous hand, the diction is good, it is correctly punctuated and there are no misspelled words. Following is the letter. ' Carson City, Nevada, March 7. L. C. Fish, Esq., La Porte City, Iowa, Dear Sir: You letter of recent date received, and in reply cannot begin to thank you for the kind offer, provided, of course, that I win. Well, in my own mind, the dog ;is mine already, for I assure you I really think that I will defeat Mr. Fitzsimmons. I am working hard every day, training faithfully, and really never felt better in my life. I have every reason to believe that I will win the fight, and no one can change my opinion but Fitz, himself, on the 17th. I am a great lover of dogs, and such a one as you describe would indeed be one for any man to be proud of, so I shall not only consider that I am fight ing for the purse, and my friends and j admirers who are betting money on me, but one of tne finest dogs in the country, so all I can say is that I appreciate your kind offer very much, and will do all in my power to win. In event of the latter I should be very glad to meet you personally and sincerely trust the opportunity will present itself. Thanking you again very kindly I beg to remain, Yours very truly, Jas. J.

Cedar Falls Gazette: Late Wednesday night residents in the neighborhood of Fourth and Main streets were awakened by reports of a revolver. Upon investigation it was found that early in the evening several Waterloo sports brought a couple of girls to this city and late that night became involved in a dispute with several Cedar Falls bloods, which caused the shooting. The parties made good their escape after the shots were fired. The oflicers are investigating the affair. One Minute is all the time necessary to decide from personal experience that One Minute Cough Cure does what the name implies. J. K. Joder and Wood & Wyaut Co. A Sioux Falls, (Dak.,) special: Untile Haguewood of Vinton, Iowa, a girl who is deaf, dumb and blind, ha been in Sioux Falls for several mouths at th deaf mute school, where she is caret! for by a teacher employed for that sole purpose by the state of Iowa. The teacher is here to study method in or der to letter educate her charge. hui the girl raine here it was learne 1 she was anxious to secure a typewriter, aud though no one could figure out bow a girl who was deaf, dumb am: blind could learn to use the machine, it was decided by a number of Sioux Falls citizens to humor her. A machine was bought. It differs in no respec from the ordinary machine, aud the girl was ' delighted beyond measure. She set to work to learn the keyboard which she did by locating her thumbs on the machine, one on cither side o the keyboard, and then feeling the let ters and locating them. Iu three days she had learned to write well enough to send the following note of thanks to the donors: Hioux Falls, S.

I shall always love the good people of Kioux Falls and when I go back to Vinton 1 shall write to them with my typewriter. Your grateful and happy friend. Linnie IlAot'EWooti The letter so far as punctuation, cap itluzation and spelling are concerned are almost perfect. The machine was given by t he school children, who raised the money through a public entertain ment. When the girl realized that she could communicate .with her friends through the typewriter, she articulated in her defective way, which few but her teacher ctin understand, "I am so hap py." Linnie has been in this condition since childhood. The ring to which she refers was presented by the women after they learned she was very anxious for a ring, and that by once feeling the ring on a person's hand, she could reo ognize them when she met them again.

Though a little late iu coming to our notice, the following from a recent is sue of the Clinton Advertiser will be read with interest in Waterloo: On last Friday evening at the Lyons M. E. parsonage occurred a surprise visitation of more than ordinary inter est to many in this vicinity, the fortieth wedding anniversary of Rev. G. W. and Mrs. Brindell. The committee having it in charge were Mrs. M. J. Godfrey, Dr. and Mrs. Thompson and Mrs. Clara Smith, of Clinton. Of course the pas tor had to be consulted, but his wife was kept in blissful ignorance of the movement until the day arrived. In deed it was designed to give inspiration and cheer to this "elect lady" whose health and spirits had manifestly suffered during the year past of her husband's invalidism. His improved health is felt to be due largely to her watchful ministrations.' .Having spent more years of their ministry in Clinton and Lyons than in any other locality five at First church and three at Lyons it seemed a fortunate coincidence that this anniversary should occur here. Congratulatory letters were received from each of the twelve other parishes: Dubuque, Maquoketa, Decorah, v inton, Waterloo, Fayette, Osage, Manchester, Toledo, Anamosa, Shell Rock and Iowa City, with pleasing souvenirs of affection. These precious letters will be preserved during life. Though Friday last was so very cold, forty or more representatives of First church, Clinton, six of the official board, were promptly on hand, who together with Rev.F.X. Miller and wife joined to the throng of members and personal friends in Lyons, made a merry, happy crowd. At 8:30 the committee introduced the speaking by reading a letter from Rev. Dr. Kyuett, of Philadelphia, (who was pastor here from 'o to '00), tnen one from Rev. Dr. Kendig, of Calvary church, New York City, special old friends. Following these came a few specimen letters from Manchester, Anamosa, Fay ette and Osage. Tender words of cheer and appreciation were spoken by rep resentatives of the two churches, em phasized by a creditable purse from each certainly a surprise to both the pastor and his wife -followed by a brief response, an impromptu song from the parlor: Wont be the tie that Mud Our hearts lu christian love; The fellowship of kindred mlinls Is like to that above," And a general invitation to the church parlors where a choice collation was served. Thus ended a very enjoyable occasion not only to the worthy pastor and wife, but to the large company of old and new parishioners of these twin churches. Williams at Knvennwood. On Wednesday evening at the United Presbyterian church at Ravenswood, 111., Evangelist Williams succeeded in raising a sufficient amount of money, in the space of twenty minutes, to build tabernacle in which to continue his meetings.

Attempt Siilclilo W ltliber Despond ent Missouri I.over, A Maryvillo, Mo., special says: Mrs. Phoebe Morris, who, with her lover, Aimer Daniels, attempted suicide ut rarnell, lay on a couch in the room where the coroner's inquest was held ovor the remains of her dead suitor, aud told a reuiHrkable story. Mrs. Morris is a particularly pretty young widow from lilockton, Iowa. Her lover,who poisoned himself in her presence, is a barber at l'arnell, Nodaway county, and has boon a widower for two years. About ayearago Daniels formed the acquaintance of Mrs. Morris, and a reciprocated infatuation followed. Daniels has two daughters, one of them grown, and they objected to the rela tions of their father and his widow friend. Although suffering Intensely from the bullet wound Inflicted by her own hand, Mrs. Morris told a coherent story of the tragedy to the coroner's jury and the newspaper men. Her visits to l'arnell have been frequent and at such times she has lived at Daniel's house. Their rela tions were questionable, in the opinion of his daughters, and when she visited their father they lived with a relative in Parncll. On Friday, Mrs. Morris went to Par nell and expected Daniels to marry her. His purse was slim, and money which he had expected had failed to arrive. The outlook was dark and the marriage seemed impossible to him After a short conversation he walked to his bedroom and took a revolver from a shelf. He discharged the weapon merely to "try it," and she guessed his deadly intentions. After telling her they could not marry, he Milled from his pocket a package of morphine and asked her to get him some water. "I refused," said Mrs. Morris, "but when he told me he would swallow it dry, I went for the water. When I came back he had swallowed half of it. He asked me to die with him. Then he took the rest of the poison, tolling me to use the revolver." The young widow did as she was told and shot herself dangerously near the heart. A strip of corset steel was driven into her chest, but it is not thought her wound will prove fatal. Although some of her statements were contradictory, the jury did not suspect her of murder, and a verdict of death by suicide was returned. V. M. C. A. Notes.

Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder World's Fair Highest Medal and Diploma, It is evident that interest is growing in the Young Men's Christian associa tion movement in Waterloo. Church people are not alone in speaking their sentiments. There seems to be a general awakening. During the past few weeks the character and varied work of the institution has been so presented as to commend it to the good will of our citizens, its extensive growtn in America, now reaching fifteen hundred organizations in great city centers, in colleges and at railroad centers, with membership aggregating 2(35,000 young men, is a simple indication of its extent. The fact that it costs ap proximately $2,000,00(10 annually to maintain these organizations, us much as two-thirds ot tnis sum coming through donations, is an indication of the appreciation in which the association is held by business people and philanthopists. The net value of the associations' property approximates $18,000,000. The men's meetings continue to be largely attended. Last Sunday the house was full. Tomorrow afternoon Mr. E. W. Peck, of Des Moines, for ten years the very efficient and successful general secretary of the association of the metropolis of Iowa, and Mr. How-ser, of Chicago will speak. The daily noonday meetings from 12:30 to 1:13 have averaged thus far, for March, 18 per day. Children Cry foi Pitcher's Castorla. Corn and At fill fa -a lialunr.e Itutlon, When I saw M. E. Dane's letter giving his experience in feeding corn and alfalfa, which is simply a balance ration, I pronounced it one of the best I had seen on that subject, and as Mr. Hurt man asked me to say something regarding it, will do so as I regard it as one of the most important and interesting features of farming. A few years since I chanced to meet ex-Governor Anthony, of Kansas, who is also a large farmer (telescope farmer he styled himself). Said he kept an average of about GOO hogs and had lost great numbers with so-called cholera. Hut for the last six years had had lots of alfalfa for them to run in feeding some corn, of course, and during that time had not lost any from that cause and further stated he believed if it had been cut and hauled to them, it would have been worth twice as much. Now these men did not obtain these fine results because they fed alfalfa and corn, but because they fed a balanced ration. It might have been done very well by using either peas or clover with the corn. Of course it is probable that a herd of bogs properly fed, might be affected on account of contagion from neighboring herds not so cared for. But is it too much to believe thut if all were properly fed, that the so-culled cholera would be unknown? In the east where there is grown a greater variety of cereals I never heard of hog cholera. Why did the all wise Creator cause all the different kinds of grain to grow? Is it not plain that it is so the correct combination may be used in feeding? I once heard a very prominent farmer in speaking of feeding corn say, "When the animals tired of eating corn to change tbe feed and give them corn of a different color," but you can't fool nature in that way. The soap maker uses both lye and grease in its manufacture, and is very careful to use the correct proportion of each. If he fails in this he does not obtain satisfac tory results and there is a waste in material. Should those engaged in the vast industries of meat and milk production be less careful? But one says I do not care to feed other kinds while corn is so cheap. That is just the way to make it worth more, for the nearer you come to a perfect balance the more valuable your corn becomes. Older animals will stand the most corn, while younger ones should be fed on feed containing much protein. Another says we have no alfalfa; what shall we use with the corn? For this purpose oil meal leads, then comes gluten feed, peas, bran, oats, in about the order named. Of course there is a good deal in giving bulk to the ration for which purpose bran is excellent for forage purposes. Clover is good also. Ordinary peas, the cow pea (which I saw on sale in all the stores in Mem phis), is used largely in this section as feed, it also is plowed under as a fertilizer. It should also be remembered that the fertilizers from feed rich in protein are much more valuable which also is worthy of some consideration. Hoping this will help out some of the young men especially, I am yours, Geo. V. F. BEGGS' Blood Purifier & Blood Maker Cures Scrofula sores and eruptions on the face. We keep it. M. J.
