The Sioux City Journal reports: "Capt. Humphrey of Company H, Third regiment of National euard. said yester- nothing ° ne of the five unknown to the shooter. Mr. Smith went to his sixth bird without a miss, while Grimm missed his first. Mr. Smith missed again on his llth and again on his 17th, while Grimm went to his 22d without another miss. On 25 birds Smith was one behind. He missed, however, his 37th, and then both the 41st and 42d, leaving °J m 44 out of 50. Grimm missed only his 27th, leaving him victor with 47. The shooting was excellent, Grimm's score being exceptionally good. Mr. bmith was worried considerably by the trouble of getting the traps down and everything ready, aud was not up to his best condition. The score shows too that he got a large per cent, of the outllying birds, and consequently hard shots.

The great majority escaped la grippe during its late prevalence. And the same is ttna of epidemics of eVeiy kind and degree. This difference is mainly doe to differ ence lit personal susceptibility, inherited of acquired. Disease invades the body at points Where its life forces are weakened. Such a lowering of the vital resistance may date back for generations. This is one reason for the astounding mortality of infants, so immensely beyond that in the young of some of the lower animals. Many persons who start with small power of resistance carry it through life. Their only hope is con-: stant care and freedom from exposure. But of those who reach adult age the greater part may be supposed to have inherited an average measure of physical soundness. Whence their susceptibility to disease? It comes from physical transgression, either positive or negative. Sleep, for instance, is a fundamental condition of high health. Nothing can make up for a deficiency of it. Lack of food does not begin to equal lack of sleep in its power to depress vitality, and so to render tho system liable to any prevailing disease. Still insufficiency of food is a great depressant, and may exist where it is least expected, for the food must be such as to supply tho daily waste of all the tissues—brain, nerve, bone, muscle and fat—besides furnishing heat forming fuel. Many a person who sits at a luxurious table is not half fed.—Youth's Companion. Some Reasons Why.

Hutchins last week as administrator of the Carlon estate sold the old homo farm adjoining Irvington to a couple of young men from Grundy county. The farm consists of 320 acres, and is one of the best pieces of land in the county, with good buildings, etc. The price was $20, which is remarkably cheap. Tho new men will be on in the spring, and will make improvements and run a big farm. A sort of family re-union was held at Minneapolis holiday week in honor of uncle James Henderson and Mrs. Henderson. Mrs. Morris Chapin, Eobert and Ihomas went.up, and with Mrs. V H.

The Minneapolis Tribune says: "A specia to tho Tribune from Mason City, Iowa says the Sixth regiment, Iowa National guards, has been ordered to be in readiness to march to the frontier for service against the Indians." Capt. Cooke in speaking of this says there is nothing ot it, and that when any orders are given for the Sixth regiment to turn out the company will hear of it. It is not impossible that the boys will be called on. But it is very improbable, ana there is no occasion for any excitement.

Davidson Recalled. The annual meeting of the Congregational church was held Monday afternoon. By a unanimous vote Rev. Davidson was called as pastor for another year, and he accepted in a brief speech outlining some of the work he hopes to accomplish. Mr. Moffatt was chosen treasurer, and D. D. Townsend cleric. A fine compliment was paid Deacon Zahlten in his election as honorary deacon for life. On account of ago both he and Deacon Hudson asked to be relieved of the active work of the office, and two junior deacons will be chosen. The Dominie Didn't Sing It. There is a big Baptist church, colored, out in the northwestern part of the city. A man standing at the intersection of Vermont avenue and T street might hit it with a stone -without overexerting himself. The pastor of that church is a good deal of a vocalist, and nothing pleases his congregation more than his excellent renditions of gospel hymns. There was a meeting in that church one evening, and everything was moving along very pleasantly when the pastor said: "Now, we are going to take up a collection, and if the amount donated is satisfactorily large I will sing for you— sing anything you ask for." The congregation then shelled out its contribution. It must have been "satisfactorily large," for the pastor stepped to the front and said: "I'll sing now. What shall it be? Express your preferences." Annie Rooney," said somebody in one of the rear seats, and the preacher's wrath -was momentarily shrouded in a burst of laughter.

Every farmer of tho county should attend this meeting and use his influence in shaping- the affairs of the society. It should be a big gathering. In any event anyone who does not attend should never object to what is done. Let there be a big turn out from all quarters of the county. JUDGE LEWIS' BEMINISOENOEg. Early Times In the Courts of STortli- \vestern lo-vvn, In a letter to the Sioux City Journal, Judge Lewis recalls his work as district attorney in this section, Speaking of the district he says: "The year 1871 came and I assumed the duties of district attorney in 22 counties in northwest Iowa, Kossuth being the most northeasterly, and Shelby the most southeasterly. Prom these the district stretched to tho Missouri river on the west, and north to tho Minnesota line. In the early days of 1871 I began a trip over the district. Only four counties— Cherokee, Woodbury, Monona, and Crawford could then be reached by cars. All other county seat towns were reached by private conveyance." Among other county seats which he visited he mentions Algona, and says of us and our neighbors: "Spirit Lake in Dickinson county was tho home of more real characters than any other in the northwest. Here there was but little litigation. Many got reckless; somo got drunk, and about everybody went hshing. Emmet and Palo Alto counties had but little litigation, but their prairies were covered with thousands of sandhill cranes. At Algona, the pretty county seat 01 Kossuth, we usually found work to do. At Humboldt, Calhoun, bao, Ida, and Buena Vista we made regular calls." One amusing incident in- Plymouth county is worthy of selection from the many m his entertaining letter: "It was after the courts were being held at LoMars that one day a jury was called A SnuiiU Thief's Disgust. A traveling salesman for a New York ewelry house left two sample cases in a ail way coach Monday on the way from OSWCRO to Syracuse, while he went forward to smoke. When he returned the cases were gone. A trainman reported that a passenger heavily loaded with baggage left at Phenix. The salesman took the first train there, and with police aid found the man in bed at a hotel and recovered the cases intact. The thief had opened one case, and finding it contained only a large Bible concluded he had robbed a book agent and disgustedly went to bed without examining the other case, in which were $525 in cash and $700 worth of jewelry.—Philadelphia Ledger.
