Some time ago the Dueber Watch Case Manufacturing company of Canton, O., offered a number of premiums to children. The task set before competitors was to form the largest number of words out of the letters composing the three words, "Dueber Hampden Watches." There were several thousand competitors, scattered throughout the United States. Six premiums were offered, and the strangest thing of all is that five of them are taken by Iowa children, as follows: First, Edith Goncher, Correctionville, Iowa, 11,054 words, $300; second, Mildred Hoag, Strawberry Point, Iowa, 10,672 words, $100; third, Bert Webster Baker, Sioux City, Iowa, 10,060 words, $50; fourth, Florence West, Des Moines, 10;000 words, $25; fifth, James Nelson, Detroit, Mich., 9,746 words, $15; sixth, Blanche Damour, Clinton, Iowa, 0,737 words, $10.

Papers upon the subjects of interest to national guardsmen will be read by officers of the guard and discussed by them and regular army officers who will be present. The association was organized one year ago and has already made rapid steps toward a strong organization that will help the interests of the guard in every respect. Swan Gustafson, a young Swede who has been shoveling gravel at $1.10 a day in the Illinois Central gravel pit near Cherokee, has been, by one turn of fortune's wheel, transferred into a million- are. Swan's mother lives in Sweden, and a few days ago he received a letter from her, telling him of the death of a relative in Pennsylvania. This relative was a cousin of Swan's mother. She is the nearest living relative. This man left Sweden some 20 or 30 years ago, and Mrs. Gustafson had not heard anything of him until she heard of his death. The information received by young Gustafson is that the rich relative has left an estate valued at $8,000,000. There are six of the Gustafsons, and the property is to be divided equally among them. The lucky young man immediately left for Philadelphia to look after his legacy. by a gelding, 2:10 by a pacing mare, and 2:13 by a trotting team. And it may be added that with the exception of the 2:1H by Guy and the 2:12i by Margaret S, all the performances are the best on record in their classes. Judge Cheney of Fort Dodge has a watch which was carried by his great grandfather, who was successful in preventing the destruction of Washington's army at Brandywine during the revolution. It is to bo presented by Mr. Cheney to the museum of revolutionary relics at Washington, which are owned by the government, and is to be forwarded in a few days. The watch, because of its ancient make and historical associations, will undoubtedly bo a relic of great interest nnd value in the museum. _________ Samuel Hayes of Grundy Center has been appointed by the board of regents resident professor of the law department of the state university. He Is a graduate of the literary department of Michigan university. For some years after he graduated ho was principal of the Galena high school. Last week at Hampton, his fellow townsmen gave Capt. Luke a banquet, and congratulated him on his election as railway commissioner. The captain responded with a few appropriate remarks, and a pleasant evening was on- joyed. The Iowa delegation in congress is urging the appointment of Representative Gear to the place on the inter-state commerce commission, which will soon Eagle Grove, where he bought a ticket for Minneapolis. The authorities had no definite description of the man, but all agents along the line were notified to watch for the baggage check he secured at Eagle Grove. Waukon presented the check at Elmore and was promptly arrested. be made vacant by the expiration of Mr. Schoemaker's commission. Senator Allison was among those who were at the white house in the interest of Gov. Gear. A number of the Nebraska delegation were there also, and presented the name of Land Commissioner Groff. _______ J. C. Baker of Palo Alto county was a member of the comm ittee to examine the agricultural college. The committee went and found many officials of the institution far more shiftless than some of the poor farmers of Iowa. They found that the buildings did not show ordinary care; that the expenses were from $1,200 to $1,500 over the. income; that the inventory of stock, implements, etc., on the farm, which about three years ago footed up $17,000, now footed up only $7,000; and that the institution was being run at an annual loss. Among the many things shown was a $300 cow standing on a stable floor so bad that if a hired man on an ordinary farm had put her in such a place he would have been discharged on sight. In short, the students were being taught, on a, large scale, that farming does not pay, and that it makes no difference how animals—even the choicest—are Icept. The trial of Gritinell, the Milwaukee engineer who shot a man named Collins for criminal intimacy with his wife, resulted in a verdict of acquittal at Elkader. Grinnell is a well known engineer on this line, and is known in Algona. A robber in Dubuque county made the wife of a business man give him $1,250 last Wednesday. Anyone who will keep that amount of money in a house deserves no sympathy. HOW TO SEOTJBE GOOD BEADING.

A well known railroad official, who enjoys telling a good story, related in the Occidental club at Cedar Rapids that he recently met a Dakota sufferer and his family, observing that tied behind the covered wagon 'was a thin, cadaverous calf, evidently in the last stages of tuberculosis or something else equally beyond cure, asked the ex-Iowan why he had brought that calf all the way from Dakota. "The fact is," was the response, tl that there calf represents a good deal, and I can't afford to lot her go." "What did you give for her?" asked the railroad man. The tourist grimly smiled and said: "You see I offered a neighbor of mine 80 acres of land for this calf— but the durned cuss couldn't read, an' so I took advantage of him. and deeded him 160 acres!"
