THE Milwaukee Herald, a Gorman paper which has been the stanch advocate of the use of the German language everywhere and at all times, has been compelled to report the base-ball games in English, as the spirit of tho game is lost when the story is told in German. IT is stated on the authority of a prominent Nihilist that there are 5,000 deadly torpedoes scattered over Russia and waiting for a future favorable opportunity to scatter the Czar over the country. He say that there are 10,000 men in that country who would give up their lives in a moment to rid the country o£ the Czar. AN onyx trust has been formed in New York City, and will control nearly all, if not all, the onyx to be found on this continent. Tho name of the corporation is the Mexican Onyx Company. T/ho capital has been fixed at $1,500,000, but this is said to be merely a nominal figure, and that it was to be increased later to a much larger amount.

All the settlers homesteaded after tho river-land patent was issued in 1848 who took 100 acres and paid #1.25 per acre and secured patents will sue on the patents for the money paid, with interest at 6 per cent, up to date. The total will amount to many thousands of dollars. Hase Ingratitude. Catherine Roper keeps a boardinghouse at Farley. Some weeks ago her nephew, William Shoup, and a young man named Cook arrived there In search of work. Mrs. Roper found work for them and they boarded at her house. At the close of the first week they told her they had received no wages and gave her their watches as security. At the end of tho second week they secured their wages, stole their watches, all the money she had, 825, and some other articles and fled to Chicago. They were followed by the sheriff, who arrested them and took them back to Farlev for trial. Clubbed a Girl. Cora Otto, of Sioux City, a young lady 20 years old, went to her bedroom late the other night without a light. She had not fully disrobed when she was clutched by a man, who held a revolver to her head. Her screams awoke the family, and tho man made his esc ape, leaving the girl, whom he had clubbed with the revolver, unconscious and badly bruised. The man was recognized as Frank Dewey, a painter, who had boarded with the young lady's mother and whoso attentions she had repulsed. Devvoy could not be found. The Hallway Board, Commissioner Campbell, in speaking recently of the authority of the Iowa Board of Railway Commissioners over the railroads of the State said: "Up to June 1, 1888, 118 cases wore reported against the various railroads in tho State. Up to June 1, 1889, but 48 cases were reported while up to the 1st of the present month but 83 cases have been reported — all of which shows that the roads are beginning to understand that the board means business and that its decisions are final."

' THE York town monument commemorating the surrender of" Lord Cornwallis to Washington and the valient aid given us by our French allies, is one of the most beautiful structures of the kind in .the world. It is located near the battle-field. It stands on a peninsula which has been historic ground from the time of the landing of the first English in (Virginia to the conclusion of tho war of 1865. THE Hydrophobia Hospital in New York is so crowded that the physician in charge has been compelled to give up jhis own bed to a patient. What this joountry needs, says the Detroit Free (Press, is larger crowds in the dog pound 'and smaller ones in the hydrophobiahos- .pital. The number of thirsty, vicious 'and utterly worthiest curs that is suffer 'ed to run at large, is something really •appalling. ^^^^^^^^^^^^ IN the window of a fishing tackle store in New York, is displayed a fly rod three feet Ions', and tapering from the thickness of a lady's pencil at the butt to the size of a pin at the tip. It is made of Japanese bamboo with a tip ol whalebone. There are three joints in the rod. The line of the length of the rod is of fine gut. At the end of it dan> gles a tiny yellow fly, concealing a barb- loss hook. The rod was made in Japan, and is a specimen of those in use there in the capture of minnows, which are regarded as a delicacy by the natives. I THEUE is an ingenious device for keep ing oysters good in the shell for severa weeks after they have been taken from tho water. Hitherto this has been done unsatisfactorily by boring holes through the edges of the shells and locking in the oysters with bits of twisted wire By the new scheme the edges of the ^hells are dipped into plaster of paris mixed with certain chemicals that uiak it harden quickly. In a few minutes the oyster is hermetically sealed, and so Strong is the cement that not even the most muscular mollusk can manage t< get a breath of fresh air.

Poisoned by the Odor of Flowers. All of the members of the Methodist church choir in Fort Dodge were seized jy a sudden illness while singing during a recent service. They were carried into the open air, where several were revived, while others had to be taken home. The church was lavishly decorated with flowers, and it was thought that their odor overpowered the singers. All the symptoms of poisoning were exhibited. Sona of Veterans. The annual encampment of the Iowa division, Sons of Veterans, was held at Washington recently.

Siotrx CITY, Ja., June 2ft.—The Republican State convention was held here yesterday. Judge Weaver, of Hardin County, wad chosen temporary chairman, and made a brief speech, after which the usual committees were appointed. At the afternoon session George G. Wright, of Polk County, was made permanent chairman. W. M. McFarland, of Emmet County, was nominated for Secretary of State on the second ballot, receiving 563 votes, against 872 for Byrkitt and 28 for Church. J. A. Lyons was nominated for Auditor. General B. A. Boeson, of Marshalltown, was nominated for State Treasurer by acclamation. Judge J. H. Rothrock was ronominated for the Supreme bench. John Y. Stone was renomlnated for Attorney- General by acclamation. G. B. Bray was renomlnated for clerk of the Supreme Court on the second ballot. N. B. Raymond, of Polk, was nominated for Reporter of the Supreme Court. J. W. Luke, of Franklin County, was nominated for Railroad Commissioner. The platform declares for the principles of the National Republican party and indorses President Harrison's Administration. It says further: "We do specifically declare our adherence to the principles of protection to American Industry, applied wisely In view of the Interest of all conditions of our people and ndmlntstered In view of the equal interest of all our Industries. Wo agree that discriminations may bo wisely made, but never In behalf of the strong against the wealc—never against the masses. "We are in favor of such an expansion of the currency as will meet tho growing demands of the increase in population and trade and offset the contraction resulting from the continual Withdrawal of the National bank circulation; that to this end we favor such legislation an will utilize as money the entire silver product ot our mines, and We favor such laws as will aid In the ultimate unrestricted use of both precious metals as money. We congratulate the people of this State, irrespective of party relationship, upon the measure of success attained in the contest in this State in behalf of just legal control of the railway corporations doing business in this State, and wa appeal to the people to see to it that there be no recession in the just policy of the State in this regard. Wo believe that effort to nullify the inter-State commerce law should be resisted to the end that National protection and State protection may alike be equal to all communities and among all classes. "The Republicans of Iowa offer their sympathy to the producers of the South who seek now for disenthrallment from the industrial bondage of the grinding monopolies of that section, protected and promoted by all the power of the organized Democratic party of those States. Recognizing that the revolt in the South is in behalf of liberty and justice, popular government and popular rights, it is a matter of minor concern in what name the battles are fought and won. "We cordially approve the purpose of Republicans in Congress so to amend and improve the pension laws as to make further and more generous provision for the Union soldiers, their •widows, parents and children, and we gladly believe tho day is not distant when a general service pension law should and will be passed. "We express our abhorrence of all trusts and trade conspiracies of every kind intended to destroy competition and create and perpetuate monopolies, and we call for the enactment and enforcement of both Federal and State laws to completely exterminate Buch iniquitous and dangerous combinations and to prevent their further organization. "We declare against compromise with the'sa- loon and stand by the people of this State in their hostility to its existence, spread and power. We favor such legislation on the part of Congress as shall protect the police power of the States in their efforts to regulate, confine or prohibit the public bar." The platform as a whole was adopted unanimously, the delegates rising to their feet and giving three rousing cheers. The State Central Committee is composed of the following members: First district, 0. M. Junkin, Jefferson; Second, J. M. Kemble, Musoatine; Third, W. H. Norris, Delaware; Fourth, J. E. Blythe, Cerro Gordo; Fifth, George Lincoln, Lynn; Sixth, B. A. Preston, Mahaska; Seventh, T. T. Anderson, Warren; Eighth, J. F. Wall, Ringgold; Ninth, P. L. Sever, Guthrie; Tenth, D. F.

PWTBBUBGH, Pa., June 26.— it was 10 o'clock when President Harris, of Ala* bama, called the international Sunday school convention to order yesterday, At that hour fully 1,000 delegates were in their seats, and before the session had progressed far a couple of hundred more had arrived. After devotional exer- oises and some unimportant routine business the report of the general executive committee was presented and read to the convention by B. F. ' Jacobs, of Chicago, who is chairman of the committee. The report was quite voluminous, but inter-.- esting throughout, and was listened to with close attention. The committee recommends the establishment of training-schools for Sunday-school teachers, and also that theological seminaries add Sunday-school normal lessons to their list of studies. The report of the statistical secretary gives the following: Number of Sun day- schools in the United States, 105,894; officers and teachers, 1,120,433; scholars, 8,598,861; total in Sunday-school, 9,719,£84. In, Canada schools, 6,689; officers and teachers, 55,035; scholars, 588,339; total In Sunday, school, 584,035. In Newfoundland and Labrador, schools, 314; officers and teachers, 9,16a; scholars, 22,817; total in Sunday- school, 34,979. The lootings show schools, 119,897; officers and teachers, 1,178,301; scholars, 8,149,997; total in Sunday-schools, 10,328,398. The executive committee calls attention to the great necessity of paying strict, attention to the teaching of temperance in Sunday-schools. It also recommends the establishment of a great international Sunday-school magazine, after the style of the Century or Harper's, to which all great writers will contribute. The next world's convention ia to be held in America in 1893, and the committee suggests that it be held in Chicago, as the world's fair will bo opened there in that year. • It is proposed that the Sunday-schools of America erect a building in connection with the other world's fair buildings at Chicago, in which there may be such an exhibit as will illustrate the Sunday-school institute, lasting an hour or more a day, and ex« tending through sixty or ninety days. The proposed cost of the building is $100,000. Following the reading of this report were the reports of the convention committees. _ DEFEATED. ttetntn* So Far tt«««tV«d frdttt th» Cen< •tti rfait taken Indies** that th» United «t»tw Wtfi B*»* a Population ot 64,* 806,600— tflgnf eg ttom the Principal tiitiel — XMttmated 6fa« of CUie* and Towni In Several Nonhwettern State* WASHitifGfToisr, June 80.— Superintend* int of the Census Porter says that from present indications the returns of the enumerators will show a total population of the United States of 64,500,000, against 50,156,788 In 1880.

MCGREGOR, la., June 36.—Northern Iowa Monday night was visited by a heavy rain-fall of large proportions. The Mississippi river here is three miles across. Trains are abandoned generally. The St. Paul road suffered badly. Sixteen bridges between here and La Crosse were washed out and every thing is at a standstill. WEST UNION, la., June 26.—The heaviest rain-fall ever known in this section occurred Monday night. Otter creek rose three feet higher than ever before, carrying out every bridge between here and Elgin on the Burlington, Cedar Rapids & Northern railway. It will be two weeks at least before trains can run north of here on that line. The Milwaukee & St. Paul transfer bridge here was swept away and several hundred feet of track moved. DUBUQUE, la., June 36. — Another frightful storm visited this section Tuesday morning. The small streams were higher than for fourteen years. At least twenty-five bridges were swept away and in some localities farmers fled to the hills in fear of being drowned. Heavy wash-outs occurred on most of the railroads. On the Illinois Central 700 feet of track was washed out near Julien. Trains are all delayed. In the Business Airaiu.

The House Rejects the Senate Free Coin, age Amendment to the Silver Bill. WASHINGTON, June 26.—Free coinage k defeated. The decisive vote in the House Wednesday was taken upon the first section of the Senate substitute for the House bill, which provided for free coinage. The leaders on each side of this question were so uncertain which would win that the roll-call was followed with great interest, and some members kept private tally for their own guidance and information. The free coinage men were beaten by 17 majority in an aggregate vote of 287. The Republicans lost 23 votes and got 22 votes from the Dem* ocratic side. The following Republicang voted with tho Democrats in favor of the free- coinage amendment: Messrs. Bartine, Carter, Connoll, DeHaven, Featherston, Funston, Gifford, Hermann, Kelly, Laws, Morrow, Perkins, Peters, Post, Smith (111.), Townsend (Col.), Turner (Kan.), Williams (O.), Dorsey, Anderson (Kan.), Owen (Ind.), Wade, Morrill—23. The following Democrats voted with the republicans to non-concur: Messrs. Andrew, Buckalew, Campbell, Clancy, Covert, Dunphy, Dargan, Flower, Geis- senhainer, Maish, McAdoo, Mutchler, O'Neill (Mass.), Quinn, Spinola, Tracey, Turner (N. Y.), Vaux, Wiley, Willcox, Rusk, Stump—32. The free-coinage men in both houses have given up the contest. It is conceded that the conference committee will agree to a bill providing for the coinage of $4,500,000 or 4,500,000 ounces of silver bullion monthly, and that the certificates issued • for the purchase of the bullion will be made a full legal tender for public and private debts. THE LOTTERY WINS. Continuance of It* by the Louisiana A METAL has been produced that will melt at a temperature of 150 degrees. It is an alloy composed of lead, tin, bismuth and cadmium, and in weight, hardness and color resembles type metal. It melts so easily that, placed on a comparatively cool part of the stove with a piece of paper under it, it will melt without the paper being scorched. It will not retain heat, but becomes cold the moment it melts. It is usejl in the manufacture of the little Automatic fire-alarms for hotels.

BATON ROUGE, La., June 26. — The measure known as the lottery bill has passed the House. It is an act providing for the submission to the electors of the State for the adoption or rejection of an amendment to the constitution of the State by inserting therein an article on levees, schools, charities, pensions, drainage and lotteries, embodying a contract with John A. Morris and his associates by which they agrae to pay to the State of Louisiana $1,000,000 per annum for lottery privileges for twenty-five years from January 1, 1894. Before the bill finally passed an amendment eliminating the monopolistic features of the bill was accepted and the bill as amended finally passed by a vote of 66 to 29. It is understood that the Senate will amend the bill by increasing the amount to be paid by Morris to $1,185,000 per annum and that the friends of the measure in the House will accept the amendment. Amendments to the constitution require a two-thirds vote before they can be submitted to the people. It is believed that the bill will pass the Senate with the amendments above mentioned. _ A Texan Tragedy.

To exert a good influence we must be unselfish, for selfishness It an ugly giant that kills every good thought in our heart.—Western RuraL —It is very foolish to argue that because some ignorant men have made fortunes, education unfits men for business.

Wait awhile." As if you had said to a soldier at Gettysburg: "My dear sir, do not fire so under this sudden impulse. Wait till to-morrow or the day after.

Men the Most Irregular and Intemperate of All Creature*. Some one says that few men die of age. Almost all persons die of disappointment, personal, mental or bodily toil, or accident. The passions kill men sometimes even suddenly. The sommon expression, "choked with passion," has little exaggeration in it for, even though not suddenly fatal, strong passions shorten life. Strong bodied men often die young—weak men live longer than the strong, for the itrong use their strength, and the weak have none to use. The latter take care of themselves, the former do act. As i-t is with the body, so it is with the mind and temper. The strong me apt to break, or, like the candle, run; the weak burn out. The inferior animals, which live temperate lives, have generally their proscribed term of years. The horse lives twenty-five, the ox fifteen or twenty, the lion about twenty, the hog ten. or twelve, the rabbit eight, the guinea pig six or seven. The numbers all bear proportion to the time the animal take* |o grow its full size. But man, of all inimals, is one that seldom comes up tc (she average. He ought to live one hundred years, according to the physiological law, for five times twenty are ona hundred, but instead of that he scarcely reaches an average of four times the ^Towing period. The reason is obvious—man is not only the most irregular and most intemperate, bu'; the most laborious and bard-working of animals. He is always the most irritable of all animals, and there is reason to believe, though we ean not tell what an auimal secretly feels, thai, more than airy other animal man cherishes wrath to keep it warm, and consumes himself with the fire of his own reflections. — N. Y. Weekly. BELLAMY is accused of taking- bis book, "Looking Backward," from an old German author named Bebel, who wrote a novel on the same lines, entitled "Women, Present and Future." Bellamy, meets the charge with the statement that he can not read German and never heard of Bebel. THE adventures of Stanley have not only been dramatized and played upoa the stage, but a German author has already produced an epio poem, wbiob in print covers 699 3*rge m ' titie te Hud Enough of Farming.
