The mine was 160 feet deep and had long galleries, all of which tho governor explored, traveling altogether about two miles underground. Ho found tho mlno in good condition in all respects. Walt. H. Butler, congroBsman-oloot from tho Fourth, has had .Tudgo Ult of tho Dubuquo Times indicted for libel. Utt stated that Butler had boon ro- movod from tho mall service for drunkenness, but retracted tho charge whon it was disproved. Fragments of a mastodon of tremendous size wore found by workmen engaged in digging adltch near Manson. Among tho bones unearthed at a depth, of llf- toon foot wore a molar tooth; weighing between seven and eight pounds, and a tusk seven foot long. Tho animal was evidently amphibious. Rov. C. W. Oarlock, formerly of Smithland, is having a groat timo at Iowa Falls. Ho is attempting to break up a dancing club composed of many of tho best citizens of tho town, and has boon bitter and unstinted in his denunciation of tho members and their actions. It has resulted In tho creation of a vory vindictive feeling. Charles D. Goldsmith of Sac lias boon appointed by Gov. Boies to the vacancy caused by Judge Macombor's resignation. Judge Macombor, our old judge, goes to Omaha and enters' into active practice. ______ During tho Sioux City corn palace festival thousands of tickets were sold in a drawing that was to give tho lucky holder tho building. Tho drawing came off several weeks ago, but no one presented tho lucky number, which was 18,008. It transpired that while Bice's "World's Fair" company was there, Donald McLean of tho Pacific Short Lino, bought 100 tickets and divided them among tho ladies of the company. Ho took a lint of tho numbers, and an examination shows that one of tho girls held tho winning number, and is entitled to a full grown corn palace on demand. The company is now somewhere in the southwest.' THE NEWS OF THE WEEK, ««*'•'<*««> plaintiff, recites in stance thnt on thn 17th of March, 1888, tho conviet slipped tind sprained his ankle. Tho injury was reported to DP. Adair, but tho convict was ordered to work in tlio quarries. Tho log became fto bud that ho WHS sot to waiting on tho convict's tables in tho prison dining room. After a time ho became unable to stop on his foot. Tho petition alleges that a plaster of purls east was then put on tho limb and loft thero for 1 three months. When it was removed the injured ankle was found to bo in it terrible condition. It was cut open and several pieces of bone wore taken out. As a result of this malpractice, gangrene sot in and tho log was finally amputated. This heroic treatment seems to have boon adopted too late, however, as blood poisoning sot in after tho oper* ation, and Murray became terribly weak and emaciated. Some years ago tho Missouri rivor changed its'course and cut olt part of Council Bluffs. A legal document has boon filed with Gov. Boies summoning 1 him before tho supremo court of tho United States on tho third Monday in January to defend and answer a bill of complaint mado by tho state of Nebraska. Nebraska claims tho strip of Iowa land, and'Iowa holds it, and between the two it is hold by a lawless crowd who take advantage of tho difference) to obey neither tho laws of Iowa or Nebraska. Tho Comontlco Wall Coating company, with a capital of $76,000, has been incorporated at Fort Dodge. The stockholders are John F. Duncombe. G. Larson, O. M.Oloson, and L. A. Thorson, all local capitalists except the latter, who is tho inventor of tho process, and comes from Grand Rapids, Michigan. The company will build a throo story brick factory and employ thirty hands. Its product will resemble some of tho eastern wall finish factories, but tho company will not bo controlled by tho pool. State Secretary McFarland appoints H. J. Bennett of Esthorvillo to a place ip his oBlco. An Iowa crematory has just been opened in Davenport, and tho city has a cremation society of over 200 inembers. At a test last week the crematorium was heated to a rod heat and tho carcass of a sheep, weighing 250 pounds, including a heavy fleece, was placed in the oven, not as a test of tho capacity of tho furnace, but to see if there was tho tho least smell. That part of tho test showed that the oven is a perfect one, not oven a suspicion of a smell of burning flesh or wool being discernable. at 15, 25, and 350 at 23, 35, and $oc at 4oc and i.oo at 3oc Election is Over!

Jas. A, Parks, a Des Moines printer, has gone to Chicago, where he will be treated with Dr. Koch's lymph. A phial has been cabled for. He has hopes of relief from consumption. The Continental clothing house of Des Moines gave the newsboys and bootblacks a Thanksgiving- dinner. Moso and Louie Jacobs were the managers, and 130 boys ate all they could hold. Malvern claims the premium apple crop. W. K. Follott has 3,000 trees and he reports that they have borne him a crop of about 7,000 bushels—5,000 bushels of prime marketable fruit and 2,000 bushels of inferior grade that were sold for immediate home consumption or mado into cider and apple butter. The crop brought him the snug sum of $4,500. His Winesaps that bore returned him |500 an acre, and his Janets $250 an acre, The entire 8,000 trees occupy but 40 acres, cJ Jan.4, the returns fore bejug ( fJ^Qjjn, a,or e < 7 * 1 1 tWRMRPHRW The Now York Herald's Washington correspondent makes this announcement of Mr. Clarkson's plans: " J. S. Clarkson, late assistant postmaster gen- oral, and right-hand prop of the Harrison administration, will join tho American colony in Europe in January, but it will bo as a private citizen. Ho is goinpf to the south of Franco with his family. Mr. Clarkson has two reasons for crossing tho < Atlantic. His health is not good, and in consequence his physicians have advised a long period of rest. He also wants to escape, tho chairmanship of tho republican national committee, which tho politicians intend to force on him as soon as Senator Quay resigns. Mr. Clarkson will in Europe for a year. Ho could have the St. Petersburg mission when Minister Charles Emory Smith comes home in tho spring, or, in fact, any diplomatic position, but ho prefers not to put himself under obligations to the administration and thereby commit himself to the renomin- ation of Gen. Harrison." A, V. H. Carpenter will retire' from the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul railway, being succeeded by George H. Heafford, now his first assistant, As general passenger agent of this road for a long term of years Mr. Carpenter is... known all through the northwest. It is understood ho will be retired upon half pay, as will also the general auditor of the company, whe has been connected with the road 27 years. This ia a new policy for an American corporation, The Milwaukee & St. Paul has followed out the policy of civil service reform in managing its employes, and is considering a plan for pensioning and retiring men who, by long and faithful service and ago or disability, are entitled to more than mere passing con* sideration. It does seem as if 20 odd years of faithful service for a corporation should entitle one to something more than an honorable discharge. Tho following story comes from Bey, Whiffield's old charge at Ida Grove: Some time ago John Bateman suddenly fell away from the Methodist church. This so worried Brother Shirk, a devout Christian, that he sought him out and, after a seige of prayer, and on promise of a bonus of $77, induced him" to return to the fold," Rev, explains it by telling that BatejKan connected with a paper, while originates in another, and from the torioua Geo.
