IOWA BTATE N1W& OftM A BROWNFIEI/I), Me., man boasts that iho has been married sixteen years, and (during that time has moved thirty-five itimes. __________^____ THE German Government is almost certain to repeal tho law .prohibiting the importation of Amepiean pork, and suoh action is expected at a very early date. } MR. TKACY, Secretary of the Navy, 'has issued an order to the Marine Band • ; when it plays in public to always "close itho programme with one of our National airs." TJIEKE is nothing in a name. One of the most liberal and progressive of London's great merchants bears the patronymic of Hogg, and does not appear to care who knows it. 'Tins Emperor of Japan wants to ride expensively. Therefore he has ordered that a state coach be constructed, and has laid aside f!75,000 for thut purpose. Of course the ornamentation is responsible for most of this sum. A CONSIDERABLE number of immigrants from the North of Europe ar- jrived in Philadelphia, by the American jLine, a few g days ago clothed all in furs. ,The weather was very hot and of course they suffered immensely, still they refused to cast aside their furs. THE President of tho New York State fish commission has notified the people in charge of the'Zalinski dynamite gun at the cannon foundry opposite West Point that they must not fire a shell into the Hudson river, as it would destroy an immense number of fish. ENGLAND had no earthly use for the Island of Heligoland. It is not fortified, could not be except at enormous expense, and in the event of war between England and Germany would have been no aid to the former. Had she sold it for $500 she would have been ahead. A CURIOUS fact is noticed in connection with the formation of barnacles on ships' bottoms. In the majority of cases .there is a much heavier growth of grass and barnacles on one side than on -the other, and in numerous instances one side will be almost free, while tho other is as foul as possible. IT is learned fz-om Ehode Island papers that a Providence woman "makes application for divorce on the ground that her husband wants her to marry him for tho tenth time. She alleges the ceremony has already been performed nine times in as many years and that she is tired of it." A BEAN SWINDLE. Said to B»»t the Bohemian Scheme Oat of Sight. • A swindle that beats tho Bohemian oats scheme is being worked on the un* suspecting granger. A glib^tong-ued agent goes to the farmer and makes a bargain with him to furnish him cinnamon beans—something new, just out, and for which there is a great demand, in the production of cinnamon oil, which is extracted from the beans. The beans are worth $20 a bushel, and he will agree to give the farmer §5 for each cinnamon bean tree grown from the seed he furnishes when it has reached a growth of five feet, and ho will bind the contract by a good and sufficient bond. Tho seed beans tho farmer gets are the common red bean saturated with cinnamon oil, and which seldom over reach a growth above six inches. The farmer will wait a good while for the return of his $20. CRAZY, BUT COULD SWIM. A Lunatic raddles Twenty Miles on a Trip to St. Louis. A marvelous feat was recently accomplished by William Blackett, an incurable inmate of tho insane hospital at Independence. Gaining entrance to the sewer he followed its course to the river, a distance of a mile and a half. Here he divested himself of all clothing and started to swim to St. Louis. He was discovered when going over the dam at Quasqueton, and as all efforts to induce him to land were futile, he was captured by force after he had swam a distance of over twenty-two miles. With the exception of a bruised shoulder he was all right. A Nest of Dogs. A Davenport fruit dealer the other day received a car-load of bananas, and on inspecting them found what he supposed to be a nest of Mexican puppy dogs. The nest contained four of the little animals, the mother and three young ones. The mother is about the size of a small rat, while the young ones are about as big as a mouse. Instead, however, of being Mexican puppy dogs, they are the smallest known species of the opossum, and are known as Marian's opossum. They belong to the tropical countries and are found principally in Guinea, Costa Kica and Central America. He will endeavor to raise them for pets. _ The River Luucl Sot tiers. The river land settlers have decided to take the advice of Judge Shiras and go to the United States Supreme Court with their case. They have not and will not bring any actions for indemnity. They want the question of title to tho land they occupy settled. They purchased their land of the Government, paid the Government for it, the Government received the money for it and has kept it. They now want the Supreme Court to decide why they have not been given an absolute title thereto. IDAHO 19 A STATS, ^•MM^lDftae f- " ' i Ji th* *rt«id«int Sign* %H* Bltt ^Admitting Her Intri the Union. WASflisroioN, July 8.*-The President llgned the act for tb.6 admission of Idaho as a State of the Union at 10 o'clock Thursday morning. The Idaho admission bill which thus becomes a law declares the present Territory of Idaho to be a Stoto, and ratines the constitution framed by the convention of July 4, 1880, and adopted at the election in the following November. The State is declared entitled to one Representative in Congresss until after the census is taken. The usual grants of sections 10 and 80 of public lands in each township for the support of common schools, of fifty sections for public buildings, of 5 per cent of tho proceeds of tho sales of public lands to constitute a permanent school fund are made, and the State is confirmed in its title to seventy-two sections of land granted the Territory for a university and to the lands on which the penitentiary at Boise City is situated. The State constitution, which is ratified by the ,act, contains a special provision prohibiting polygamy and .declaring ft* fl*m*<t«t«* n , til. the YitMttff fJepHttitttfiit't in tfttWt *#» ftrowd Was ih thi« city Friday oelft* br&tlng the fourth in the usual man* fief. At OioO o'clock a large part of the assemblage gathered at the western edfe of the city to witness a balloon ascension and parachute leap by 8. F. Black, a youth about 18 years of age, of Cjuincy, 111. The balloon was filled With hot air and shot upward with groat rapidity. When at its greatest height the audience was appalled to discover smoko slowly issuing from the canvas of the parachute. In a short time flames co'uld bo seen, and the parachute separated from the balloon and descended with great rapidity. The unfortunate aeronaut was dashed to the earth and instantly killed. He was terribly mangled. The rope by which the parachute was to be released became entangled and was out of tho aeronaut's roach. He was then compelled to witness the flames destroy his only moans of escape. By tho time the parachute was released by tho fire it was so nearly consumed that it caught no air in the descent. Black's parents reside in this city and were among the spectators who witnessed his death. UNION LABORITES. MAP OF IDAHO. that no person shall be entitled to vote, to hold office or to serve as a juror who is a bigamist or polygamist, or who JUDGE J. P. SMITH, of Fort Worth^ walked from Kentucky to Texas in the old Sam Houston days. He walked because he didn't have any money td spend to pay his passage. He doesn't ne'ed to walk now unless he wants to, for he is about the wealthiest man in Fort Worth, and is reported to have a million. AN old farmer and hunter on Robinson iork of Buffalo niver, Nicholas County, "W. Va., with his nephew, while hunting an the mountain forests a few days ago, .•came on the trail of a pack of wolves. The men traced the animals to a den in the 'rocks. They followed the brutes Into the cave and captured seven young wolves. The men realized $140 for their capture. ^^^^^^^^^^^ THE Pall Mall Gazette says that Prof. Gluck recently performed a remarkably euccessful operation. He removed ifrom one of his male patients a diseased knee-joint and inserted an artificial sub- etitute made from ivory. The patient Las now left his bed. He walks with perfect ease, and says that his ivory knee-joint is convenient and comfortable in every way. MHS. LYNCIIBAII, of Galveston, had the unusual experience the other day of finding a snake in her bonnet. She hastily picked up, the bonnet and, though it felt heavier than usual, she gave no thought to tho circumstance and clapped it on her head. With a shrill shriek, such as only a woman and a Chicago tugboat can raise, she pulled it off, and a puff adder, a snake of a venomous variety, fell to the floor. The Soldiers' Home. The "original package" proved too much for some of the boys at tho Soldiers' Home, and tho commandant, having no other alternative, dismissed several. The Governor considered this too severe a penalty, and went there recently to consult with the commandant. While he does not censure the commandant, it was agreed to adopt some other measure until proper plans can be provided by the trustees for violation of rules, there being now none whatever. _ No Longer a Mystery. The mystery surrounding the origin of the fire by which Mercy Hospital was partially destroyed at Davenport recently and in which Sister Mary Irene lost her life, has been cleared up. Frank Dittmer, a reliable witness, testified that while working in his garden he saw a bolt of lightning descend and strike the building at the place where the fire afterward broke out. The flames did not burst forth until nearly half an hour after the building was struck. _ Did Not Go Shopping. A decided sensation was created in Burlington the other day when Henry Bowman, a prominent farmer, appeared in that city in search of his wife, who left homo for Kingston ostensibly to do some shopping. Mr. Bowman said she joined a neighbor named Walker and ran away, taking a valuable horse belonging to him. The eloping couple wont to Burlington, but could be traced no further. IN Galesburg, 111., fire brick for paving has stood the test of six years. The clay there is the best, but the excellence is in the burning. Galesburg has now about five miles of this kind of pavement, and it has cost literally nothing for repairs during the six years that the oldest portions have been in use. All tho work is done except the guttering, and all the materials furnished for a total of only SI. 40 per yard. practices or encourages plural marriages or is a member of or countenances any organization which teaches such doctrines. [Idaho is an Indian word signifying "Gem of the Mountains." Tho new State is 410 miles in length from north to south, and 257 miles wide in the extreme southern part. There are 18,400,000 acres classed as mountainous, 15,000,000 acres of agricultural lands, 7,000,003 acres of forests, 85,000,000 acres of grazing country and 600,000 acres of lakes. In J8SO the population of the Territory was 38,610, hut it has since increased until the figures have passed the 100,000 point. There are sixteen organized counties in the State and a large number of thriving towns. The capital and largest city is Boise City, situated in the southern part of the State on a branch of the Union Pooinc railroad. The total valuation of taxable property in 1887 was 830,741,193. These figures represent only a fraction of the wealth of the newly admitted State, as the valuation Itself is placed very low and. does not include the rich mining properties »ud their products on which there is no tax. Growing crops are also exempt, and as assessments are made early in the spring but little grain, Iruit, hay, or other products of the farmer la ever on the assessment rolls. The agricultural lands of Idaho are almost exclusively sago-brush lands and require irrigation to make them productive. They occupy a large portion of the available area of the State and generally consist of broad plateaus. A stranger unacquainted with sagebrush lands would regard . any attempt to reclaim them useless, but with irrigation the soil becomes exceedingly productive. The best farms in Idaho were onoa sterile sage lands. The soil is especially adapt ed to the raising of all kinds of grain, the warmth of the earth and the mellowness of the soil always warranting an abundant yield when •watered. The product of Idaho's numerous and extensive mines is one of the great reasons of permanent growth and prosperity. The production of gold, silver and tead for the year 1887 la estimated as follows: Gold, $3,417,489; silver, $4,033,160; lead, $3,195,000, making a total of $l»,215,589. The placers of Boise County alone have yielded tor years at the rate upward of $1,000,000 worth of precious metal each twelve months. There are 313 school districts in Idaho and 316 schools with 1Q,000 enrolled pupils. The total number of children of school age is in the neighborhood of 80,000. There are ten school libraries, and the yearly expenditure for schools is over $200,000. The Indians of the new State are peaceably inclined and live upon five reservations. Some of the finest agricultural and mining lands are in the counties of Shoahone, Nez Perces, Lotah and Kootenai, in Northern Idaho. Here are situated the thriving towns of Lewiston, Moscow, Murray, Wardaer, Weber and Chloride.] Meet nt Coluinbud, O., and Noml- nat« H State Ticket. COLTJMBUS, 0., July 5.— The Union Labor party of Ohio held a convention here Friday and nominated a State ticket as follows: Secretary of Stato, Ez«kiel T. Curtis, of Farmington, Trumbull County; Judge of Supreme Cou*t, William Baker, of Newark; Clerk, Joseph W. Leavitt, of Columbus; Member of Board of Publio Works, Eli Raub, of Wood County. The platform declares as follows: That tho Government shall lend money on real-estate security direct to the people; that Union ex-soldiers should receive a graduated | service pension; and every human being should have laud, air, water and sunshine sufficient to promote his happiness and no more; that tho State should not interfere with municipal affairs; that tho people can not expect any relief from either tho Republican or Democratic party, that every Ohio candidate for Congress be put on record on these principles; that tho platform of the Union Labor party adopted at Cincinnati in May, 1888, be reamnnoil; thutthe United States shalL be owned and governed by the citizens; that the farmers be placed on au equality with whisky distillers, National bankers, etc., by the furnishing of Government storehouses and the advancing in money to per cent, ol the value of goods stored there, and that franchises not granted to individuals generally be abolished. tedttctlon In the public debt during .tune, fi.3 Bhown by the monthly statement just Issued fitoift the Tteastiry Oepartntent, was $ao,685, fSB, und fot> the fiscal yeaf tthlch closed Monday, $88,4^1,448. The reduction durlns? the preceding yen* varied but Itttle from this amount, swd Was $88,088,025. Durinff the past fiscal yea* the Government has purchased and redeemed in round numbers $74,000,000 in 4 per cents, and about $81,000,000 In 4% per cents., at a total coat of $126,418,887. ; The not cnsh in the treasury to-day is $55, 409,748, a month ago it was $80,801,791, and a year ago $71,484,043. Imports of gold to the United States during the fiscal year just closed wore, approximating for Juno, $13,878,732, and the exports $17,008,020, or a net loss of gold by export during the year of $4,830,180. During the preceding iiscal year the imports of gold were $10,872,- T45, while the exports reached $00,033,230, a not loss of $40,661,101. Government receipts from all sources during June amounted to $87,546,891, against $33,757,907 in Juno a year ago; and for the fiscal year the revenue aggregated $403,083,079, which is greater than in any year since 1881-8'J, when it reached $403,525,350. During tho preceding fiscal year the revenue from all sources was $387,050,058. While the revenue for the past year was $15,000,000 greater than during the preceding 1 year, expenditures were also greater, and aggregated $337,988,044, or about $18, 750, 000' more than during the preceding fiscal year. Tho interest on the public debt during tho year just closed amounted to 530,133,810, or about $5,000,000 less than in tho preceding year. The premium paid on bonds purchased— $430, 304, 334— was fully $3,000,000 more than during the preceding year, and the pension charge for .the past year amounted to $106,939,433; about $3,000,000 of this amount was used to pay pensions duo during the closing months of the preceding fiscal year, so that the real pension charge during the past year was about $09,000,000, against $05,000,000 the preceding year. A YOUNG FIRE-BUG. ALL WERE LOST. A 5-Year-Olil Boy Confesses That He t'lreil Several llullilingg. INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., July 5.—For two or three weeks the police have been puzzled by incendiary fires in the southern part of the city. Wednesday the Antioch Church was mysteriously fired and a little girl in the vicinity said that she saw a 5-year-old boy, Johnny Hampden, running from the structure just as the blaze burst out. Investigation satisfied the police that the lad was tho troublesome fire-bug, and he was arrested and brought to the mayor's court Thursday on a warrant charging him with the crime. Just before the trial ho confessed to setting tho church on fire and said that ho had also fired the Excel- Bior works and Prick's livery-stable, both of which wore burned a short time ago, and several stables in the neighborhood. The only reason that he gave for thus destroying so much property was that ho "wanted to see the fire- engine horses run." The mayor held him over to the criminal court. KILLED IN THE RING. from a AN English officer who recently traveled on the public service says that he sent in in his account of traveling expenses the entry: "Porter, 1 shilling." His accounts were returned, with the remark that porter could not be allowed, but that if the entry were intended for the conveyance of luggage it should be aoted as porterage. The alteration waa duly made, and a query added as to whether a cab should not be entered as •"cabbage." The reply was that "correspondence on this subject must cease." As THE Norwegian Government has (requested the National Assembly to add 180,000 francs to the private subscriptions in behalf of Dr. Nansen's proposed Arctic expedition there is little doubt that next February will see him started by way of Behring Sea on his quest for the North Pole. The New York Sua recently printed Nansen's theory, based upon a relic of the Jeannette expedition [that had drifted to the west coast of Greenland, that the current which conveyed this relic must Itavo passed across or very near the Pole. Some scientific Buen of Europe think this theory is very plausible. New* in Brief. The late George W. MoCrary, Secretary of War under President Hayes, was buried at Keokuk a few days ago. Hepry Grabenkarap, Jr., of Burlington, was drowned while bathing in the Mississippi river the other day. George Burden and Miss Viola Eider were married recently at Dubuque. Among the presents was a $4,000 check from the bride's father. Sioux City has a water famine. New works to draw a supply from the Missouri river will be built. Sanborn has a 14-year-old authoress, who contributes short stories to the local press. The managers of the home for friendless children at Des Moines have purchased a site and propose to erect a new bujlding 1 this summer. John Bailey, a Burlington teamster, while driving across some railroad tracks recently, was struck by a train and fatally injured. Lewis Buch, a brakoraan, fell asleep while tending a switch at Warwick the other morning and was instantly killed by the "flyer." James B. Stevens died at Des Moines recently from the effects of an application of corrosive sublimate which ho was using as a remedy for a skin dis« case. A roustabout negro named White and a white deck hand named Turley on tho Mississippi steamer Mary Morton engaged in a quarrel on the boat near Dubuque the other night and White, picking uy 9 club, hit Turley a terrible blow on th« bend fracturing his skull kllllwff biw. White WAS arrested. A ROTTEN BOAT, Four Persons Lose Their Lives at McKeesport, Pa. PITTSBUUGH, Pa., July 5.—At 3 o'clock Friday afternoon John Thompson, his wife and 14-year-old girl Bessie, and Eichard Smith and wife and three children started to row across the Yioughiogheny river at McKeesport, twelve miles above here. The boat was old and rotten, and when the middle of the river was reached it gave way. Both men sunk instantly, and Bessie Smith and Alice Thompson followed, after rising three times to call piteously to their mothers to save them. Eobert, an 18-year-old son of Mrs. Thompson, dragged his mother to the boat, and she and her infant child were supported by the bravo boy until help arrived. Mrs. Smith also saved herself by clinging to the submerged boat. The bodies of the two men, with their daughters, wer« recovered. Brennan, the Prize-fighter, Dies Blow from Frank Glrard. CHICAGO, 111., July 5.—William Brennan, who was knocked senseless in his sparring bout with Frank Girard at Battery "D" Thursday night, died in one of the Battery's parlors at 5:45 o'clock Friday morning. Parson Davies at once'made arrangements to take care of the body, and- had it removed to an undertaking establishment. Brennan was not conscious from tho time he fell" until the moment of his death. Harry Gilmoro, who acted as Girard's second, was arrested yesterday and looked up at the Harrison street police station. This makes the fifth arrest that has been made in. connection with the brutal exhibition. Brennan was 31 years old and came to Chicago from Brooklyn about two years ago. The Release of a Convict Develops Start" ling Facts About the 1'rlson. JEFFERSON CITY, Mo., July 5.—Henry Butler, a negro, who waa serving a life sentence in the penitentiary, was the recipient of a pardon from the Governor Friday on account of his exemplary behavior as a prisoner. He has been in the penitentiary a little over fifteen years, and upon investigation the rather startling fact was developed that in the sixty years of the prison's existence no convict ever lived out so long a sentence. It is a rare thing to find a convict wno has lived ten years in the Missouri penitentiary. Poor sanitary regulation of the institution is the cause. Heroes BlHk THelr IAve« and .Enter the Hill i''an»x Mlne-yi'hey Satisfy Tbem- Holvns 'That the Thirty-One Imprisoned M«n Ai-o Dead and Abandon the Search. DUNB-AII, Pa., July 3.—Sixteen days have elapsed since that flash of gas set fire to tho Hill Farm mine. Hope and' work were abandoned Tuesday evening at 0 o'clock and the dust or ashes of tho thirty-one imprisoned men may rest beneath tho Dunbar hill till the last day shall come. * After being driven from the mine by smoke and black damp Tuesday morning twenty-one brave men resolved to make one more attempt to rescue their comrades, and at 3 o'clock they again entered the burning pit. Three of the party ventured to within a f«»w hundred yards of a burning subterranean .fire and satisfied themselves that the men were dead and that further search was useless. Tho stench of burning human flesh Bickened them, but they visited nine places where the men were known to have been at work. Two dinner pails were found with dinners untouched and two coats. The picks and shovels were all lying just as a man would leave them as ho started on a dead run for his .life. One.'inule was found dead and putrefied. Otherwise no trace of the men could be found. While prosecuting their search further they ran into an immense cloud of black damp which put out their lights. A struggle for life then followed, but they succeeded in getting back to tho rest of the party. After a sad consultation it was decided to abandon the search, and the party left the pit to tell the friends and relatives Of tho entombed men that the search could not be prosecuted further.

The family wore gathered about th«. »reakfast-table in a pretty cottage in me of the suburban villages near New York. TheTcircle was enriched by the wesence of two daughters, one of twelve knd the other of seven years. Th» ather was a little late in responding to call to the table, and when he appeared ihe younger daughter, in tones of dis- guat, said: "There, papa is going to ituy down again to-night; he has on bis tail coat." With a look of patient endurance, the older daughter looked up and asked: ''Another committee meeting?" "Pro bono publico!" responded the father. The older daughter, proud of her knowledge of Latin, translated the sentence, to which the younger responded: "Yes, for the public good, but the family badl" How truly the small maiden had declared the conditions in thousands of homes!—where the public good displaces the family good; where the excitement of attending to the public af fairs affords far greater pleasure than the worker finds in attending to the good of that part of the public which ia embraced under the item of family.
