As near aa we can learn the particulars of the case the party arrested Was working the oil and gas stove swindle in different parts of this state and Missouri, inducing well-to-do farmers to sign contracts to become agents for their county, but the contracts would sooner or later turn up in the hands of some bank for collection in the form of notes. He had worked his scheme on someone in the southern part of the state, and they got after him. He would check his trunk first to one place and then another. Finally it was sent from Marshalltown to Wesley, and the sheriff of Matshall county followed hero and waited for its owner. After staying two or three days ho was called homo, and got Sheriff Stephens to come and hold down the business for him. The latter did not have to wait long till the man came, and was somewhat surprised when Marsh took him in. He was taken back to Morshalltown that evening and turned over to tho sheriff of that county. Our county superintendent was visiting our schools Friday. She thinks they are progressing nicely. But one thing is greatly needed, and that is another room and teacher. The present teachers are having too much work to do and do justice to themselves and the pupils. H. L. Hodge of Fort Dodge was in town Monday looking after the .interests of tho American Book company. W. C. Danson and Sheriff Stephens passed through town Monday on their way to Corwith. Rev.

Person's mother is in town again for awhile. Henry Schlisohting of Cedar Rapids is in town on business. George Miller Sr. sold his 120 acre farm near Cedar Falls, last Tuesday, to a gentleman from that locality for $30 an acre, cash. Jesse Willey and wife returned home to""day from Scranton, Iowa, where they ,have been making a visit for the past two or three weeks with relatives. Leonard Merkle took tho train Wednesday for a few week's visit with his folks at Cleveland, Ohio. The Crosswait brothers gave a comic entertainment at Patterson's hall on Saturday evening. There was a private dance at Albert Wandorloy's on Friday evening, good music in attendance. J. A.

Henry Miller is having his barn moved from the south end of town up to his home place near the school house. Mr. Smith of Iiivermoro is moving it. J. Knauhlaugh made a flying visit to his home in Wisconsin this week. There wiis a comedy show at the hall on Saturday night, and they gave a good show for home talent, and had a good house. Win. Mason's little baby came very near choking to death on Sunday on a piece of meat. There is Bbmo talk of a dance at tho hall on Friday night tho 10th. Bancroft. •BANCKOFT, Jan. 12.—There have been two meetings held hero for the purpose of seeing what could bo done to build a grist mill in Bancroft, and enough has been subscribed to warrant us in saying that we will have one. One man will take $500 worth, and by next week we think wo will bo able to report that the project is on its foot. Tho business men are taking hold with a vim. Hurrah for Bancroft tho booming county seat town of Revival meetings continue at tho M. E. -church with great interest manifested. C. H, Sands, tho veterinary surgeon of Blue Earth City, Minn., is in this town working at his profession. Ho will remain only a few days. Sidney Uist of Algona WHS visiting his - many friends in this city last weeK. There will be a ro-union and roll call of all that have been and nre now members of the Baptist church. A number of people from abroad are expected, and it promises to be a very pleasant occasion. It will be held next Sunday at 8 o'clock. All aro in Vited> Mi4s Clara Burroughs of Algoua was visiting in Bancroft last week. Miss Hilda Stinson came home from the normal to spend tho Sabbath with her parents. The firm of Johnson Bros, has been dissolved, and J. B. Johnson, continues in tho business. The annual business meeting and election of officers of the Baptist church occurs tonight. Land has advanced so much in price in the last year that Ex-Gov. Larrabee •asks $00 for a lease of a section of laud for -grass purposes for one year. Action has been taken before the board of directors which it is supposed will place Bancroft in an independent District. We h^ye heard no particulars. The Presbyterians hold services 'eaoh Sunday ia the school hpijsfl. T, Jan, J&—W W. "Wlleon went to Elmore on business the first of the week. Prof. Dod&ref has organized a class in club swinging. Marsh Stephens was in town this week Rev. Thompson of Corwith was here assisting Rev. Ward. Mrs. J. B. Johnson fell on the ice and sprained her ankle. t*. C. Anderson has purchased the machine business of Johnson Bros. W. W. Wilson was called to the bedside of a sick friend at Goldfleld. •\Vlilttemore, Eminetsburg Reporter: Henry Munch of Whittemore was in Emmetsburg on Tuesday, and his many friends here were surprised and pained to see him in such poor health. Mr. Munch is endeavoring to dispose of his Whittemore property, believing it necessary for him to get into another climate before he can regain his health. Rev. O. M. Thrasher, the clergyman who preaches the gospel in this county according to the Baptist theology, evidently earns his salary. Last Sunday he drove from Whittemore to the Root school house in Vernon township, a distance of 20 miles, preached a sermon and drove from there to tho Wright school house in Fail-Held township, returning to Whittemore in time to preach in the evening. Every alternate Sunday ho preaches at Ayrshire, and atone or two school houses in that vicinity. Huffalo Tork. BUFFALO FOUR, Jan 12.—Mrs. Palmer of Buffalo township is very ill, and her friends have little hope of her recovery. Mrs. Case Wiltse has returned from her visit in Dakota, and reports fine weather there upon New Years day. Michael Bartlett and sister, Mrs. Gilbert, spent Now Years with relatives iu Minnesota. Mrs. Miles of Britt has been visiting her aunt, Mrs. Bartlott, the last week. The Mite society was to meet at Jesse Ddvison's New Year's day but on account of tho storm the members were obliged to eat their dinners by their own fireside, which was quite a disappointment all around. Mrs. G. Manley and son, Fred,, are visiting friends in Hancock county. Carrie and Maud are trying their hand at housekeeping while their mother is away. A son arrived at the home of Mancil Cunningham just before Christmas. Probably ho did not hang up his stocking this time. The memorial windows for tho new church at Buffalo Fork are in Burt. As the second coat of plastering will be put on this week, all hope to see them in place soon. Ijlvermore. Humboldt Independent: Mr. and Mrs. Frank Devine were called to mourn the loss of their infant daughter of two weeks old on the 27th ult. Funeral services were hold at the Catholic church and the burial made in the new cemetery one and a half miles south, it being tho first burial in the grounds. Mr. and Mrs. Devine have the sympathy of all in their loss, yet none can truly sympathize but those who have mot with similar losses. Martin Larson paid in fine and costs 814,50 for the pleasure of. a drink. Anton Anderson tried to help Larson get away from the constable and so donated $9.50 for interfering with tho majesty of the law. Hans Brovold also took a hand in the libera- tive part of tho performance to such an amount that the mayor thought §5 was about value received for him. Getting filled with liquid hell and starting out for a big time in Livermore has of late been an expensive business to those immediately concerned. Rev. R. Brooks is running a horse trading department in connection with his organ business which bids fair to become a success. Christmas day when all other business was at a standstill, Rev. B. exchanged tin organ for a good Work horse, then swopped for a carriage horse, and traded the last one for some of Uncle Sam's due bills. The above is but a fair illustration of his business energy, and though not as young as some of our trading men, yet when ho starts out in earnest they had better get out of the way. TOPICS OF THE TIME. How to Break Up a Severe Cold. The Virginia City, Mont., Madisonian says: When we find a medicine we know to possess genuiuu merit wo consider it a duty, and we take pleasure in telling the public what it is. Such a medicine we found Chamberlain's Cough Remedy, last winter, when la grippe was prevailing. Wo are satisfied that we warded off several attacks that were threatening by the use of this syrup, and we have since relieved, in iv few hours, severe colds, and in the course of two or three days entirely broken them up by its use, as have several of our friends to whom we have recommended it. It is all that it is represented to be by the manufacturers. If you have a cough and want to stop it, Chamborlam's Cough Remedy will do the work. Sold by F. W. Dingley. Croup IIus Lost Its Terrors, lilr. John H, Cullom, editor of the fffii-laud, Texas, News, writes as follows: "I wish to add uiy testimonial to the efflcucy of Chamber Iain's Cough Remedy for croup. That dread monster has lost Its terrors for us since we began \ising the Remedy.

Pclli Adler'g flftn ot Teaching Children to think, ObSferro and Clearly Express Themselves—A tlnlqne School and its Methods of Instruction. The wofkifaginan's school is especially Intended to serve the needs of the children of the poor. Little ones from the tenement house districts are admitted to its free kindergarten at 8 years of nge. They go from the kindergarten at 0 into the school proper, which carries out Proebel's creative method ott a higher plane and with a greater minuteness of detail. The pupils continue in the school until their fourteenth year. Thereafter the instruction is to be continued in a series of evening classes. Felix Adler, the earnest ethical preacher, is its originator. The school is carried on in accordance with the principles which form the basis of his philosophy, which teaches its followers "to do right for right's sake" without expecting a reward. Tin- school building is so spacious, well li;;ht!'il and clii'srful, and tho teaching so nfclH'rcnt. progressive and inter- cfitin'riVt! t!," eV;Hr< j n of the rich might etiw i':••;:'lv.'i:jl;i;;(!s offered to the off«pi::.- ' '. ;i' !'<•";•.

The imbject under discussion is the paper making wasp, and each eager youngster is trying to find out as much as ever he can' from actual investigation. The teacher is firing their enthusiasm by adroit questions that, provoke inquiry and stimulate curiosity. METHOD OP INSTRUCTION. He has sketched an enlarged head of a wasp on the blackboard. He has told them—but in eucb a wisely suggestive way that they think they have found it out themselves—that "tho paper making wasp has three simple eyes and one compound eye, and that in the compound eye are 8,000 little microscopic eyes." The teacher says as he dismisses the subject of the wasp's eyes, "Perhaps next lesson you may find out what the wasp does with its simple and compound eyes." The class looked as if they were sure they would. "Now," he continued, "we have learned certain things about this wasp this morning, let us write about it. What shall we name the story?" he queried. "The Story of the Paper Making Wasp, 1 ' piped out a small boy in answer. The title was thus written on the blackboard and in the notebooks. "Who has anything to eay about it?" was the next question. Everybody evidently from the number of hands eagerly upraised. One boy was asked what he had to say. He responded with alacrity, "It's body ain't so very long." "That does not count for anything," answered the teacher with quick directness. "Can't you measure?" The boy was intelligent enough to understand how vague and meaningless his answer was; so were his classmates who were aching to tell; but ihe first boy measured his wasp, and gave an accurate and clearly expressed mswer. By dint of lively, keenly discriminating questioning a story was written about the wasp, which read as ! ollows: "The paper making wasp is about one- lalf an inch in length. Its body is made up of rings. The wasp has three divisions to its body—the head, thorax and abdomen. The. wasp has a small joint which keeps the thorax and abdo- nen together. Its body is full of hair." AIM OP THE FOUNDER. As many of the pupils come from the ienement house districts they have had no opportunity to get impressions of na- ;ure, and are unfamiliar with many simple things that a country bred child mbibes with his breath. This need has seen provided for. In the picturesque ittle village of Sherman, in Pennsylvania, provisions have been made for a vacation colony for tha school. Thither almost all the pupils go in charge of the jrincipal, and spend the summer months u the woods and among the hills, gain- ng health while they are storing away mowledge to be used in tueir winter studies. The founder of tho school has formu- ated a series of workshop lessons, based on mechanical and tree hand drawing. Sis aim is to educate the mind first that t uiay direct the hand aright. For instance, a pupil receives a model of a cone Tom which he takes measurements and ;hen makes a complete working draw- ng. Ele then goes to tho workshop with drawing, and with tools and proper i material turns in his lathe a cone ac'dorcl- ' ng to his drawing, which is a copy 'of ;he original model in the drawing ivJoiu. This plan it is proposed to pnrSie according to the age and ability 'of the pupil, from tho simplest construction of a trianglo to the construotiOii >6'f a steam engine. From the workshop wJl6re mechanical drawing is the bjasis 'the children go into the school at'eiiei 1 , where 'free hand' drawing cultivates : the sense of:harmony and beauty. 'Little' Children of C and 8 liiodel simple 'forms'of leaves, scrolls and various architectural forms in clay. They are : led upward from a simple modeling of a square to the intricate work of the features of the human face. It is hoped that this process will awaken the art instincts of the masses. America can produce no great artists, architects or sculptors until the whole people have; the true art feelipg. : . In all probability there is not another school like this one in, the United States, d it awakens the keenest interest in friends an<? eympathjijsers, who wonder what the outcome of tho experiment wil\ be,—Neyr York Times.

While at Mount McGregor I visited the Grant cottage. It lain the same condition now as it was when Grant died. The same furniture stands in the same places, and the tallow candle half burned down to the socket stands on the table, besides the two great armchairs in which ho breathed away his last hours. Pieces of his last writing, consisting of slips from his pad, are shown, and there is a tall, fine looking soldier in uniform who sleeps in the cottage and takes care of the relics. There are, on the average, about 84,000 visitors a year now, and many pathetic incidents occur. Nearly every one that comes wants to take away some memento of the place, and many pick up the gravel of the walk around the house, supposing that they are carrying off stones trodden by the foot of Grant. The truth is that this gravel has to be renewed every month on account of these relic hunters, and tho stones they carry away have never seen Grant. Mr. Arkell, who owns the mountain, tells mo he was offered $35,000 for the cottage, and that the men who offered this were western men, who said they wanted to cut up the cottage and sell it for relics. The probability is that they would have taken it to pieces, have carried it off to Chicago and shown it there at the exposition, in the same way that Libby prison is to be shown.—Cor. Cincinnati Times- Star. Depreciation In tho Prlco of Onyx. Among the art treasures which used to adorn, the drawing room in his marble palace, now occupied by the Manhattan club, A. T. Stewart cherished a block of Mexican onyx twelve inches square and about seven-eighths of an inch thick. He gave $700 for it, and it was considered an unusually big, rare piece of what was then a precious stone. So rapidly have the onyx deposits of Mexico been developed since the day of the merchant prince, however, that a piece of onyx the same size as the one the great trader valued so highly can now be purchased in New York for about $5, or for a good deal less than one-hundredth part of the price he paid. Blocks of onyx of eight feet are now shipped here, cut up to commercial size in Brooklyn and sent to the New England factories to be polished. For interior decoration onyx black African marble, so long used almost exclusively, has been almost superseded by the mottled stone now found in such ' abundance on our own continent.—New York Letter. Whitolaw Held. Whitelaw Reid is sparely elongated of frame, and suffers his dusky lovelocks to ; flutter in negligent profusion behind his j ears. He is urbane of manner, though he married money. He is also three- and-fifty, and made his first success in journalism as a war correspondent; under the signature of "Agate." After the war he wrote an elaborate "History of Ohio in the War," which attracted the attention of Chief Justice Chase, and he invited Mr. Reid to accompany him on his southern trip in I860, an account of which he wrote, Tho chief justice introduced him to Horace Greeley, who made him his secretary and managing editor of The Tribune, and since Greeley's death in 1873 he has been editor-in-chief. He was at one time superintendent of schopls at Charleston, S. C,—Frank Leslie's. Does the nijjlit Shoo Wear Out first? A majority of people who buy shoe's in this house leave their old ones. 1 presume this is ti'ne of other shoe houses. 1 have noticed that the sole of the right shoe—1 niettn the old shoe—is worn dowji very thin on that point where the ball of the foot rests. 1 have seen so many such that 1 got to thinking about it, And have come to this conclusion; •Nearly everybody in a city like Chicago "rides on the street cars. Nearly everybody gets off his or her car on the right hand side of the car, and i'n alighting the right foot is the first to strike the stone paving, or whatever the paving may be, and it strikea'on the ball of the foot. This in time'wears down the sole of the right shoo at "that point.—Interview in Chicago iMbune. Where Many Oysters Are Opened, In one 'place on West street the proprietor stated that he had 1,000 men busy shucking oysters, and that each man averaged $7 a day—in other words, each man opens from 6,000 to 7,000 oysters a day, receiving $1 for every 1,000 oysters opened. Therefore if 1,000 men are engaged in opening oysters, and each man opens 7,000 a day, no jess than 7,000,000 oysters are opened in a day,— New York Letter. The most recent additions to the cata-- loguo of scientific terms have been made by (V professor at Aix-la-OhapeUe, Or.

The gastronomic part of the dinner fc not considered — that is a matter for the cook; but there is much more to a good dinner than food, although some people will deny this and call it absurd. There is a gveat deal in making the diners at ease with one another if they chance to be strangers, and that cannot be dofio by substituting Little Neck clams for oysters. But it was done very cleverly the other night in this city where some bright young people of New York were to meet some aa clever young people from two other cities. When they seated themselves they found a largo, square envelope at each plate addressed to each of tho dinner party, and with mutual bows of tho head they opened them with some curiosity and read them with gradually increasing smiles. Each note began abruptly as follows; "My Dear Miss," or "Mr.," as tho case was, "This is to assist you getting along well with tho man [or girl] on your right. His full name is - , and ho is interested in - , noted for - , talks well on - , and becomes tiresome on his special hobby, which is - ." Then followed a warning not to speak of such and such topics, ov to refer to this or that political, religious or public question in terms of disrespect. Of course tho notes were at once passed on to tho man on the right, and so on around the table, and the ice in consequence was broken at once. It is just as well to remember, however, that the writer of the notes should possess great tact, and not too keen a sense of humor, because the slightest jest which might offend would be fatal. The opportunities in the way of dinner cards and menu cards are vast. Sometimes they can bo made very pleasant reading by clever quotations under the names, which compliment or satirize the diners, and sometimes they can be made very valuable by autographs and sketches by clever artists. One man in Philadelphia, who is noted for this sort of thing, gave a dinner to a theatre party who were going to see Henry Irving, and had the menu cards made of photographs of the actor, with his and Miss Terry's autograph underneath. At another time he gave a dinner at the Rittenhouse club to a dozen men, on which occasion the menu carrjs were printed without punctuation and in a solid block of type, something like this: "Littleneckclarnspeasoupwhitebait ifthestewardcannotgetwhitebaitbroileds meltslambsbrains," etc. The card ended with , ' 'Cheeseandtheusualsweetthings coffeeandlargefatexpensivecigars." Some menu cards now have places for the autographs of the diners, and some time during the dinner they are started around the table with stylographic pens, and every one present signs his name to every other person's card until he gets his own back again. — New York Evening Sun. _ A London Method. London is covered with houses which have been huddled together anyhow by the speculative builder, on borrowed money, and without much, if any, regard for the comfort or convenience of the persons who are doomed to inhabit them. How the thing is worked was briefly explained the other day in the bankruptcy court. A receiving order was made against a builder who began business thirty years ago, admittedly without any capital. In due time he became a bankrupt. That, we may assume, did not hurt him very much. At any rate, we shortly afterward find him carrying on his business again, and then in the course of another nine years ho once more found his way into the bankruptcy court. On that occasion there was the cheerful payment of one shilling in the pound — an unusually large dividend, under the circumstances. On he went again, more gayly than before. Then he "worked" several building estates with a firm of solicitors, but somehow or other that did not answer, and consequently that enterprising gentleman made his third appearance in the court. Thus do the gods sometimes persecute those whom they love. — London Herald. Wood Like Steel. Jarrah wood forms the siibject of an interesting article in The Kew Bulletin. This wood, a native of western Australia and a species of eucalyptus, has several valuable properties which fit it for special uses, but it is so hard that it cannot be easily worked with ordinary tools. Were it not for the fact that ships are now mostly built of steel jarrah wood would folgi a valuable material for their con- strt;*,tion, for vessels built of it have after twenty-five years' service been found as sound ns when launched, although they have not been sheathed with -. . 4 ?per, The Kew authorities have been in communication with some oi' the London vestries, and as a result jarrah wood is being tried in the London sitreets for paving purposes.
