Taylor, over Howard's. Tho Farmers' Mutual Benefit association is rapidly assuming larger proportions in Iowa. Tho mooting nt Muwntlno was woll attended, and for oitootlvo, harmonious work could hardly bo excelled. Tho Iowa supremo court has Just nfllrmcd tho decision of tho lower court in liio celebrated oaso of Johnson vs. Miller, ot al., better known as tho,Tones County Calf ease. Tho vordlot of tho lower court was for tho plaintiff in tho sum of $ 1,000, Tho Jury returned n general vordiot and also answered n number of special Interrogatories nml tho onso wont to tho supremo court on tho ground that the answers to tho special interrogatories did not warrant tho general verdict. Tho supremo court evidently thought otherwise and afllrinod tho verdict. Tills caso has boon in tho courts for about 20 years and has boon tried several times In tho lower courts and has taken n number of trips to tho supreme court. Tho calves over which this litigation grow woro originally worth $15, and up to this time tho costs' of tho case havo grown to between $15,000 and $20,000 in addition to tho verdict of $1,000. At Independence last week I/ • -. m of Axtoll, gavo birth to u horsoX ,y William L., thus making tlmX ^stor u full brother to Axtoll, and c? ..^tiuontl;' worth n small fortune. Tho Infant will probably bo named "Dow Toll." C. W. Williams owns u half interest in tho colt, Tho last term of court in Floyd county was notable by virtue of its touching up tho saloon element. Several of tho saloon gentry cnmo up before tho Judge, pleaded not guilty to selling boor, but admitted soiling "Indian Soda," But as tho parties who drank it thought It a " distinction without a difference," tho jury wlmokod it to them in royal stylo, ono man getting u flno of some $1,400. Dos Moinos Register: Tho Aldrichcollec- tion received a valuable addition yesterday in tho shape of finely oxeeutod stool engravings of tho famous Mormon prophet, Joseph Smith, his wife and two sons. Tho ploturo camo from llov. Joseph Smith, Jr., who now resides at Lament, Decutur county, being connected with tho Mormon church ut thut place, and also runs a newspaper between sermons. Tho son is nearly as famous us tho historic father, who made and marred the church of tho Latter Day Saints. Ho was born in Kutlund, O., in 18M3. After the murder of his father at Nuuvoo, ho remained in that city with his mother until 1800, when ho wont back to Mormoulsm, and managed tho Saints' Herald a* Piano, 111. Ho then went abroad and preached frequently, but in 1875 ho removed to Lament, 111., whore ho now resides as tho recognized head of tho reorganized church of Jesus Church of Latter Day Saints, a strong opponent of tho polygamlsts of Utah. Secretary of State MeFurlund has been promoted. Gen. W. B. Franklyn, tho horo of Fredorlolcsburg and president of tho board of managers of tho national homo for disabled soldiers, recently sent u draft to him for tho sum of $81)5, to bo devoted to tho Marshalltown soldiers' home, under tho impression that ho was tho governor. Mo wouldn't make u bad governor, anyway. At Dubuque the kids have got on to tho weighing machine. They get u penny and then lino up to bo weighed. Tho boy with the penny stops on, drops tho cent, gets his correct weight and while ho stops down another stops on before the machine goes back. In this way tho whole crowd of boys got tho worth of tho cent. George Knox of Mason City, aged about fourteen years, was sentenced to tho reform school last week by Judge Sherwln, whore ho will remain until ho is twenty-one years old, unless suspended on good behavior. Several charges are said to have boon preferred against him, and among others was that of breaking up tho tombstones in tho cemetery, and also appropriating other people's property to his own use. Applications for temporary injunctions against twenty-five saloons was made last week. The prosecution will be conducted by Attorney J. H. More of that city, and A. J. Baker, attorney for the State Temperance alliance, under instructions from that organization. Detectives have been at work there gathering evidence for weeks. Tho alliance hopes to close every saloon in the county. The Citizens' Mutual Fire Insurance company of Waterloo, of which ex-Governor B. U. Sherman is president, has mude an assignment, and James P. Sherman, the secretary of tho company, has been appointed assignee. The company was organized iu ABOUT UNIFORM TEXT-BOOKS. Somoof thollonaotiH Why n U ill form Nyntcm In tin) lloHt. Tho following article Is from Supt. Cnroy In tho Inst Kosauth County Totxchor. Wo reproduce H in tho interest of bringing abouta needed reform In tho matter ot toxt-b^oks In the schools: Teachers of Kossuth county, how many of you havo road tho toxt book law passed by the last general assembly? It is a law not easily understood and lnis not yet boon tested, two stromj reason* why every teacher should road it carefully and discuss It with tho people of tholr district. In tho December Issue of this paper you will find tho latest opinion of tho attorney general in regard to sections one and nine, and you will find the law Itself with your m.ilv director. Could wo go on using tho same hooka wo havo until the law him been tested In other counties and tho people havo had more time to think about It, all would bo woll; but some of the townships aro very anxious to makoa change, to adopt now books and avail themselves ot tho low prices scoured by this law. It is quite improbable that all tho townships will adopt tho same books. Question—Will it bo bettor or worse for your pupils If you aro obliged to work with a now sot of text-books every time you go from ono township to another to teach? If you think you can make yourself familiar with the now text-books and do just as good work for your pupils at tho same time, don't hesitate to say so. If you think you can do better work for your pupils by making yourself familiar with ono sot of text books, and then teaching from those books, don't hesitate to say that, either. If you believe that county uniformity Is best, it Is your business to lot tho people whom you '• servo know it. If you have an opinion on this subject don't hesitate to express it, whether it bo for or against county uniformity. But before you express an opinion, it Is your business to study the law, endeavor to understand it and know what tho effect will bo if put In operation. Every citizen should think of this matter and think of Itintollgont- ly. Wo do not hesitate to say that wo think county uniformity anil low prices Hro best; but it Is for tho people to say whether thoy want county uniformity or whether thoy do not. PARLIAMENT DISSOLVED. Tho CimndiniiH to Sonil a Now HOUHO of Commons to J>onl Vvltli tho- QuoHtloii of Hoclproclty. The Canadian parliament has boon dissolved and a now election Is ordered^ to take place on March 6. This Is the result of proposed reciprocity between Canada and tho United States. The regular Canadian election, which occuiw every five years, would not naturally come until 1898, but tho dissolution of parliament was ordered at this time IB order that tho question at Issue might bo passed upon by tho people, who will send a fresh parliament to deal with it. Tho Toronto World, tho ministerial • organ, gives this vorson of tho reason for appealing to tho people at this tinier " Sir John MacDonald's government not long tigo made a dodnlto proposal to tho Washington authorities for a settlement of all tho existing differences between the two countries on'tho basis of an extension of trade between tho two countries. It involves partial reciprocity, tho enumerated articles to include ' quitrfa number of natural products, but tho proposition discards any idea of commercial union or unrestricted reciprocity. Moreover, those propositions wore Invited and suggested by the Washington authorities. Tho commissioners from Canada and Great Britain will start for Washington on March 4, tho date of the ending of the present congress. The result of the Canadian elections will bo known March (5, tho day tho commissioners roach, Washington, In order that this commission may have no uncertain sound, Sir John MacDonald has decided to appeal to tho country and ask for judgment on these proposals of his to the Washington authorities. He does not want the endorsement of a parliament it\ its last, session, but tho freshly expressed opinion of the people of Canada, and for this reason ho has advised the dissolution. Thd campaign will open by a big meeting in Toronto, where Sir John MttcDonald and probably Hon. Mr. Foster will unfold the nature of U*e proposals to the United States. Th«t meetlag will be within a few days. Sir Charles Tupper will bo one of tl>e Pa- nadjftn commissioners to / Washington. He will take an active part in tae election campaign as well. He will speak in Ontario, where the big battle W to be fought. On this issue Sir John M»0- Donald expects a majority of W to 70 to the new house." J. CHOICE buckwheat flour qn
