EMORY THE NEWS OF THE WEEK, The new Wtnona & Southwestern road will be completed to Osage by January 1. It runs from there to Mason City, where it expects to absorb the Mason City & Fort Dodge road and extend southwest to Omaha and Kansas City. ,,__. The proposition to bond the county to build a new court house at Etdora, Hardin county, was defeated by a majority of 647. Iowa Falls has an eye on the county seat and offers to build and present to the county a $40,000 court house if the county seat is located there, and her citizens, of course, worked hard against the tax. There isn't a county in the state that needs a now court house worse than Hardin. The Iowa Improved Stockj Breeders' association will hold its seventh annual meeting at Oskaloosa December 8, 4 and 5. Arrangements have been made for a large and profitable convention. Local committees have been appointed to have charge of affairs, and Oskaloosa people will lend their assistance to making the meeting a success. Win. Welch, one of the pioneer settlers of Webster county, died Wednesday morning at his home in the east part of the county, after a short illness. Mi*. Welch was an inhabitant of the county for over 40 years and was universally esteemed. Dr. QUiver's remains were taken from Creston to Davenport for burial. In speaking of him the Capital reports: The doctor was well known in Iowa as a traveling lecturer on phrenology. He was brilliant, and when sober and attending to business was very successful. At this place he had been for several days on a protracted spree. Dr. Olliver was about 45 years of age; a man of good address, and an old soldier. He was raised at Davenport, Iowa. Robt. T. Lincoln was in Mt. Pleasant last week visiting his wife's father, Ex-Senator Harlan. her She and and The A shocking affair occured at T. J. Yeoman's, near Carroll, a few days ago. His little five-year-old daughter strayed out in the feed lot where a lot of hogs were rooting around. An old sow rushed at the child and got down with her face to the ground, then trampled upon the little girl voraciously set to work biting knawing at the back of her head, rest of the hogs caught the frenzy of the moment and all rushed in to tear the child to pieces. Mr. Yoernan happened along that way and was horrified to realize what was occuring. He is a strong man and leaped into the midst of the maddened swine and getting the hild by the limbs rescued her from a horrible death. It was with difficulty that he made his escape with the injured little girl. The child was badly scarred on the back of the head and neck, but aside from a good many 9ruises, no serious injury was inflicted. Attorney General Stone has begun suits against the Northwestern, Milwaukee and two other roads to enforce the commissioners' rates. It is said they refuse to adopt the Iowa schedule. The tenth annual meeting of the mutual insurance associations of the state met Wednesday in Des Moines. About 80 were present, representing 38 of the 116 associations in Iowa, The president, M. Farrington, of Bremer county, read his annual address, showing that ;he associations were carrying $66,000,000 of insurance. The average annual rainfall in Iowa .s about 35. SO inches, computed from records of signal service stations as folows: Des Moines (mean for ten years), 36.45 inches; Dubuque (fifteen years), 87.03; Davenport (seventeen years), 34,93; Keokuk (ten years), 37,08; Omaha, b., (nineteen years), 33,51, These igures furnish an approximately accurate basis for computing the average 'or the state, The Chicago Tribune says of Iowa's dairy school; "Competent teachers, ihey say, will runnet." The state teachers' annual meeting is held at Des Moines December 30. Prof, J, C. Gilchrist gives a paper on educational tendencies. The Iowa sheriffs meet at Des Moinos December 17 and 18. Ex-sheriffs, deputy sheriffs and marshals of the state and sheriffs of surrounding states are rmtecl to be present. Rev. Mary Safford spoke in the Jewsh temple in Omaha last week. The Sioux City Journal says: She express- is much satisfaction in the hearty welcome given to her by the "Congrega- ion Israel," of Omaha, because, so far (9 known, a woman minister has never jefore preached in a Jewish ,r4 her exchange with. Rabbi bows not only that hip is widening, but ftlap as well as Christianity is beginning to hold more rational and progressive views in regard to woman's place in the church. The state railroad commissioners have commenced suit in the O'Brien district court to compel the enforcement of their order to require the Chicago, Milwaukee & St, Paul railroad company to furnish room on their right of way at Hartley for the erection of coal sheds by the Sunny Hill farmer's alliance of that locality. The road has refused to comply for the nominal reason that the spare room on the right of way for such purposes is already occupied. It is understood that a test cose will bo made of the matter to determine the authority of the commissioners in this class of cases. Williams, Iowa's horse breeder, is out with his announcements for 1891. The Independence races will bo held in August, 575,000 in purses and $25,000 in specials being the inducement. These are the biggest purses ever offered in the west, A chapter in the unwritten history of Iowa is that relating to tho Trappist Monks, who still maintain a monastery at Dubuque. After Marquetto and Joliet they were in all human probability the first whites to penetrate tho territory of the present state of Iowa. As far back as 200 years ago they made a map of this region and called it a map of loway. Tho curious old drawing is still preserved in the library of one of the European capitals. Fort Dodge papers quote Dolliver as saying that he feels confident that he will be able to secure the passage of tho public building bill for that city when congress reconvenes, and asserts that tho results of tho recent election will have no perceptible effect on tho appropriation bills, and ho says he has assurance from Senator Allison that he will be able to get tho bill reported back through the senate as soon as it passes the house. Mr. Dolliver says that it will take a particular effort to accomplish this, as the session after reorganizing will be of short duration before it adjourns for the organization of the new congress, but that he intends to make it, and that by January 1 he hopes to be able to announce the safe passage of a bill that will secure to Fort Dodge a $75,000 building. IT WAS NOT SUICIDE. Dr. Ollivcr's Priends Discredit tho Reports That Ho Killed Himself. A friend of Dr. Olliver at Creston writes the Sioux City Journal as follows: "Being an old acquaintance of Dr. Olliver, at his former home in Davenport, and having known him many years I met him at this house after supper on the evening of the 14th and had quite a chat with him and he was then in a cheerful mood, inquired about his friends in Davenport and I thought that I had never seen him in a better mood. He retired to his room on the first floor above the office, and about 9 o'clock the next morning the servant entered his room and found him breathing heavily and quite unconscious. Physicians were at once summoned and tried diligently to restore him all day and through Saturday night but without avail, and he remained unconscious until his death Sunday morning. He was evidently suffering from apoplexy or from stroke of paralysis. His medicine chest was open but the doctors were unable to say that he had taken any kind of medicine, and were quite unable to state any opinion as to the cause of his death with certainty. He had written a letter to his wife, found sealed on his table, written in a cheerful spirit, and which, he probably intended to stamp and mail in the morning." Mr. Cameron of Sioux City also writes to the Journal and says: "The writer, having nursed the doctor through a similar spell, wishes to dispel the idea of his seeking to take his own life, believing the act to have been an accidental occurence. About a year ago it was my duty to administer medicines and guard him from swallowing overdoses of of powerful remedies prescribed by a competent physician, during his semi-delirious condit /n, and I noted his feverish anxiety about himself as to whether he would recover. He had more confidence in prescribing for himself, although utterly unfit to do so, than in the attending physician, who directed me to remove all dangerous drugs from his reach. I have yet in my possession a box of morphine pills that he did not use. I am confident that the present case is due to inadvertence on his part, arid not design." TO CUBE OBBONIO TROUBLES.
