A special effort was made by the alumni association of the state university to Secure a large attendance of bid students at thecomffleficement exercises last week, and organize them as & •king body to further the prosperity of the School, It was in every way successful. Although the radical changes IU the faculty and policy of the school have made & break that severs the strong feeling ot personal attachment that goes with old associations, graduates dating back to the sixties joined with the later alumni in accustoming 1 themselves to the hew order, making the acquaintance of the new professors, and joining most heartily in the feeling of enthusiasm which is being aroused on every side. With all due respect to the excellent character and valuable work done by many of the old professors, there is a change in the spirit of the school, a broadening in its alms, and a thoroughness In its work Under Its new management which re- §1 S *==* g *=*=• Undertaking and embalming will always receive careful and personal attention..

Tho school today in Its work, nnd especially in its aims, is an honor to the state. It is a university not so much because it teaches everything—Chancellor Hammond in his commencement oration corrected the impression that tho word means that—but because scholarship—a thorough and liberal training—is the nim^of its work In every department. At the head of those who have boon instrumental in the change is President Schaeffer. Ho has not only wielded n great influence as a business manager, but by his cultured manners ho has popularized the institution with all with whom ho has come In contact, and by his thorough university spirit ho has been able to mold and direct tho tendencies of the school. In a social way his accomplished wife, a sister of the noted liteary man Eugene Sohuyler, has aldod him vary materially in refining tho influences thrown about tho students, and in giving nil their gatherings a touch of eastern culture. Of tho old members of tho faculty Profs. Currier, Calvin, nnd McBrldo alone remain, each with more than state wide reputation in his department.

The list conldlno doubt bo profitably enlarged by 'careful Tn veStlgatlon of the needs and advantages of both the hoine and foreign markets." Mr. Blaihe has always been credited with high tariff ideas, but it is evident that he cannot endorse the practical prohibition on commerce which Me- Kinieyismjrfwposes. THIS matter of "original package 1 houses, it occurs to vis, is very much like the liquor question ih any other form. Iowa as a Whole is a prohibition state, or at least such was the case when a non-partisan expression was last taken. Whether It is now or not Is a disputed question, but in the absence of proof we have ho reason to believe that another Constitutional amendment election would not result as did the VOL, last one.

In tho other departments the most important changes are in tho chairs of literature, philosophy, and history. Prof. Anderson In literature stands in the front rank of American teachers. His own work as a translator nnd contributor to literary periodicals has given him a national rerutation. Prof. Patrick's contributions on philosophy to tho Popular Science Monthly have attracted wide notice, and he has edited one or moro works of ancient philosophy in a manner to secure instant recognition as a profound scholar. Prof. Perkins not only has developed tho historical department until it is one of the most Important in tho school, but is himself the author of a poem entitled "Eleusis," somewhat in the style of " In Memoriam," and a product which a competent critic declares equal to anything now being dono In American verso. Tho law department shares tho renovation, nnd in Emlin McLain, tho author of the commonly used Iowa digest and annotutorof tho Iowa statutes, has a legal scholar at its head the equal of any in tho west. In Prof. Wnmbaugh ho has another thorough scholar as his chief assistant, while Judge Lovo still retains his work. Tho faculty throughout is composed of scholars, nnd many of them who have already gained tho recognition of tho intellectual world. On such u basis it is possible to build an institution without a rival and such un institution Iowa is on the high road to attain. In a material the Wilson bill or something resembling It. Where the sontlmont of a town is opposed to liquor selling In any form ^t will be different. For instance, It is noted that In Emmetsburg the package men are running things with a high hand, and little or no opposition is offered. At Esthervillo the Vindicator says it will not be wise for anyone to attempt the sale of liquor In any form. Those of our people who attended the races nt Spencer last week tell us that Johnny Coonan is running a package joint there on tho "wide open" plan, and In ono instance it is noted that beer was sold by tho drink over tho bar of a certain saloon. And that Is the way It goes.' Thus far Algona has boon remarkably fortunate In that no ono has attempted to open a liquor shop as a result of tho decision by the supremo court. It remains to be soon what will happen here. This paper believes that the majority sontlmont in Algona is against the sale of liquor as u beverage, and that life will bo mado a burden for thti man who tries to operate any establishment of tho sort. But that Is just our opinion. It may bo otherwise but we dp not think so. THE Le Mars Sentinel is led to remark : " Tho Industrial homo for tho adult dent, W. 3.

Corn has made good progress, the only drawback reported being lack of sufficient cultivation on account of excessive rains. With favorable conditions the remainder of the season* the cribs of the state will be fairly well filled. THE action of the convention at Boono was what has been predicted, and DolHver's nomination by ncclammatton came as a matter of course. No platform was adopted ih view of the meeting of the state convention. Geo. W, Henna was chosen commlttocman for the county, Thus, so far as congressional matters go, the political bark is peacefully launched. TALK about the Wlnona & Southwestern railroad is reviving. Tho road is to bo completed to the Iowa line this season. Then tho squabble will come to find out what lino it will take through the state. .Tohn G. Smith's Contribution to ail intot-ogtliiK Volume. the book on sports to which John G. Smith contributed a chapter on "Inland Duck Shooting" has been issued from the press, and is a handsome and entertaining volUmh. Some thirteen chapters on various kinds of game are included, all by men of experience, and together they afford a good history of American sport with the gun. Mr. Smith writes some very interesting things of the habits and peculiarities of the mallard and other ducks of this locality, and adds a number of entertaining sketches of his own experiences as a hunter. One will interest all our readers. He writes about pass shooting and says: : The best day's duck THE KOSStTK COTOtfr MtJTUAL. Constitution and By-lftws ot This Formers' Insurance Company.

THUS wrote tho editor of the Blue Earth City Post not long agoi "A Justice of poaco In Iowa has decided that the constitution of tho United States Is unconstitutional and threatens to put tho supremo court of his state In Jail for contempt of court. Ho has been n justice of tho peace forty years and Insists that tho court knows herself."

Ho will make a splendid run and poll every republican farmer vote in tho state." shooting that I ever hod did not begin till 10 o T olook in the forenoon. It was at Elbow Lake, Ruthvon, Iowa. My old Mend, Frank Nicoulln, and myself, got up at 3 o'clock in the morning to take the early train on the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul railway for Ruthven, 86 miles west of where wo live. We went to our depot, and sat there three long hours waiting for a " freight train.'' It camo at last, but we did not get to Kuthvon till after 9 o'clock, wo went down to the lake, and found but few ducks there. The wind was southeast and blowing very strong. Wo sat down on the pass, and concluded that shooting would not be very good that day. Wo looked up toward Lost Island fake, which Is situated about three or four miles northwest of Elbow Lake. Wo noticed some ducks in the uir. Soon a stray flock camo down against the wind. They went over Frank, and he shot a pair of canvas-backs, Hois a sure shot, and any duck that comes within range of his gun is almost sure to fall, Other flocks followed, and sewn almost a stream of ducks was pouring into. Elbow Lake. Tho wind blow so hard that they flew very low. Canvas-backs, redheads 1 ," and blue-bills camo in in thousands. The loko was full of wild colory, tho favorite food of the deep water ducks. There wore times that day when I saw moro ducks than I over saw at ono time before.

Alyoua, way tho school bus wonderfully improved. Iowa City has dedicated its fine public park to the state for it. In this tho new science building will bo built. Across tho street, tho Y. M. C, A. building will be built, §25,000 haa boon contributed, nnd $10,000 has been added by Mrs. C. D. Close, a widow living in tho city. In this will bo a gymnasium, bath rooms, and a public hall, besides a chapel for use of tho Christian association. Tho completion of those important additions will add still moro to tho rapid growth of tho school in numbers and in popularity. Tho feeling against Iowa City ia dying down, us it ia being discovered that no moro orderly city of ita aize exists In the atate, and tho attendance of tho school marks a rapid change. Over 100 more students have been in attendance than wore a year ago. But ono thing is now needed to complete the machinery of state education, und tlmtJs to bring the high school work to u common standard, preparatory to tho university course, and then devote tho energies of the attt'to to making our schools a pride to us, and to the nation. Tho extension of tiio normal school system as an aid to our common schools, and tho building of a university at tho head of nlL equal to tho 'great schools of the old world should bo tho aim of every man who BOOS in tho most thorough education the highest possible training for good citizenship, and success in life. CAPT. BELL, tho whilom editor, postmaster, and "offensive partisan" of Webster City, has been experiencing ono of those domestic troubles that help to mako life u burden. Tho report reads; "A year or moro ago Ca'pt, Boll moved to Washington Territory with his two daughters and son, his wife being dead. A Dos Molnes gambler, Prank Hoff, or Allen, fo%> lowed tho family there and succeeded In inducing Gipsey, his ID-ycar-old daughter to olopo with him. This was last November. She did not know ho was married until her ruin had been accomplished. Ho took her to Davenport nnd placed her In a business college under an assumed natno, where she learned stenography. Tho father has been searching for his erring daughter since her elopement. During tho last week she has boon at Marshalltown, Monticollo, and Cedar Rapids, trying to ovado her father, but he succeeded in scouring her at Monticollo and has taken her away for parts unknown. Ho mado the statement that t^ay would not return to Washington." JN THIS NEIGHBORHOOD. Tho Beacon reports J. W.

Warren Barber, for tho past 28 years a resident of Esthervillo, died rather suddenly last week. Some years ago he became afflicted with rheumatism, which left him n cripple for life. Tho plan for holding races at tho Ft. Dodgo driving park on July 4 has fallen through because of lack of competing horses. Nearly all tho .horsemen in that vicinity have arranged to send their horses elsewhere. Tho Spencer News soys that ono day last week Ackloy Hubbard was thrown from MB bicycle by tho machine coming In contact with a dog. Mr. Hubbard told the story twice to ladles, nnd each in turn came nt him with " Did It hurt tho dog?" Notiolng tho coincidence ho deliberately told tho story to six of their sisters, and invariably mot with tho sumo question at tho end of hia narration. Tut: Journal believes tho conaus will show Sioux City to huvo between 85,000 nnd 110,000 people. IIJ-AIXK'S It la now generally bollovod at Washington that tho administration is opposed to the passage of tho McKinley bill. Secretary Bluino is credited with severe eriticlms on It on several ow»;a- sions. Ho is said to huvo talked very plainly to Senator Allison, and also to tho president. His idea hua been to mako reciprocity treaties with all countries on the American continent amounting to arranging for free trade. In answer to (ho millers' convention last week ho showed how 8ucl» a treaty could bo arranged witb Cuba und tho sugar producing Islands, which are now preparing to prohibit our flour.

In view ot. tho recent decision by the supremo court It Is not easy to say what tho convention will do, and tbo host builders of platforms aro at a loss to know Just what will best fit tho case. One of tho most vigorous suggestions—though perhaps not tho wisest—which wo have noticed comes from tho Oimwa Sentinel man. This Is what ho recommends: Resolved, Thut tho republican party of Iowa, in state convontlon assembled, huvlng faith In the virtue and Intelligence of tho people, do hereby reiterate that prohibition Is the settled policy of tho party, that we have no compromise to make with tho saloon, and will take no backward steps on tho temperance question: that wo swear undying hatred to tho saloon, und, by the eternal, it shall never come back Into Iowa to do its deadly work except It touio over tho dead body of tho republican party, so help mo God. THE Bancroft Rogiator has turned a new loaf tho proper side up in tho departure which it announces regarding free publications of notices. Hereafter, it soys, it will charge regular rotes for notices for church socials, otu., whoro un admission foe Is charged, and that " cords of thanks und lists of wedding presents being out of keeping with tho bolter customs, will bo charged for the sumo as other udvortislnir matter." A good kind of reform, Bro. Ellis. Stick to It und you will wear diamonds. HA VINO been charged by tho Fort Madison Plulndoulor with courting popularity in tho expression of his opinions, Sam Clark replies In tho Gate City, and it i» just such a reply us might be expected from a man who docs bin own thinking and luw tho courage of his convictions. He Buys: " Well, if we are courting popularity wo would drift easily and smoothly with tho party majority and gupress the utterance of opinions to which the majority IB opposed. Wo have never done that for a minute. We have never courted popularity" In our life. We simply say what we think should bo sold, but wo are not such a fool us not to know thftt wo thereby mako fur more unpopularity than popularity."

In about every town ho strikes ho is arrested and fined under tho peddlers' licence ordinance, and each time ho refuses to pay, and puts up bonds and appeals his case to tho district court.
