Now tho citizens petition tho board of supervisors to order her remains examined for poison. On Sept. 12, George Marion, a nephew of Mrs. Himmelspach, died from a dose of strychnine, administered, it is charged, by tho former's wife, Josephine, and one Jos. Bonn. Tho two suspects aro under bonds awaiting trial. It is believed that Mrs. Himmols- pach was put out of tho way by tho same parties. ______ Complaint has been filed against Gus.

The banner offered by the Tippecanoe club of Des Moines to tho county giving tho largest republican gain in the election of 1890 over that of 1S89, goes to Dubuque county, the matter having been referred to Chairman Mack of the state committee for settlement, The successful county made a gain from 1821 to 2830, or 55 per cent., taking tho head of the ticket in both cases.

' The date for the G. A. R. state encampment has been fixed for April 14,15 and 16, at Dubuque. The people of that city are making groat preparations for entertaining the wearers of the bronze button. This story comes from Mason-City byway of the Republican of that place: A Mason City lady procured the services of a plasterer to patch the ceiling. She told him she had already procured material to make the mortar. When the man arrived he found sand and lime but no hair. He spoke of the hair. The lady was much astonished, not knowing it was used in mortar. She wanted to know what kind of hair, and the man told her cow's hair. Not having an idea that cow's hair is for sale by dealers in building materials, the lady went out and droye the family cow into the barn, where ehe clipped most of her hair off with a pair of shears. This is a true story and we expect to get into trouble for telling it, but it is too good to keep. The long drawn out senatorial contest in Kansas has ended in the defeat of Ingalla. When the next congress meets the seat of Hon. John James Ing»U» will be occupied by W». Alfred |»f«ffej of the 1 swam' aU> Mice, who, in the Joint session of thej£»n,s%s Pennsylvania and soon after removed Indiana and later to Missouri. He during tho war in the eighty-third Illinois volunteers. At tho close of the war he settled at Clarksvillo, Tcnn., practicing law, and in 1STO ho moved to Kansas, taking up a claim. At different times he edited various pnpors, served in tho state senate, and was a delegate to tho national republican convention in 18SO. In that year ho moved to Topcka, assumed editorial control of the Kansas Farmer, and afterwards bought the paper. Ho hns been engaged in tho publication nf that paper over since. Senator Ingalls, in un interview, said ho had no plaus for tho future, except that ho knows ho will remain in Kansas. C. Perry Byam, widely known in Grand Army circles os tho " youngest soldior of the rebellion," and Houry Hart, formerly a board oC trndo man, aro under arrest charged with real estate swindles. It is assorted that they paid a small sum on a largo tract of land south of tho city aud advertised lots for sale in exchange for grocery stores, saloons, etc, As soon as tho deed of tho property wns mado ovor to thoui, thoy would mortgage it and lot tho business run itself. It is nocdlcss to say tho deeds thoy gave for tho real estate were valueless. It is asserted thoy have netted $20,000 from their many victims. Tho will of tho lato George Bancroft has been placed in probate. Tho estate is given in trust for the benefit of relatives. Bancroft's manuscripts and historical collections aro offered for sale to tho library of congress, and in tho event of their not bo- ing purchased, thoy aro to bo offered to any public library, tho money to bo added to tho trust fund. His library and printed works aro to bo sold, preferably to some one institution. Jefferson is all excitement over tho discovery of natural gas near that place. Frank Snoclgruss sunk a well to tho depth of 80 feet, and tho flow of gas from it is said to bo sufllcient to light his house. Franklin county, one of tho most prosperous counties in tho stato as regards finances, scorns to have a poor idea of educational advantages. On account of tho low wages paid to teachers, a number of her schools aro closed. Owing to quite extensive damages done by traction engines to tho bridges of a community in which they are used, the commissioners of a number of counties are adopting tho following resolution: That hereafter all owners or persons in charge of traction engines in said county, who pass over county bridges with said engines, shall do so at their own risk, and that tho county will not bo responsible to owners of such engines, and all owners or persons in control of such engines will bo held responsible to the county for any damage done to county bridges by reason of passing over the same with such engines. Fifteen freight conductors wore "fired' 1 from the service of tho Chicago, St, Paul and Kansas City railroad last week.

Madison for a term of three and one-half years. The money for which the cattle were sold is still in the hands of the commission merchants in Chi- / cag-o pending the action of the Cook county, Illinois, court It is hard to say when the dvvners of the cattle will see the color of their money. - ' - ~ "- -•-"'-• T" T tT *•!
