Come and see us. p.onstipation, I F not remedied in season, is liable to become habitual and chronic. Drastic purgatives, by weakening the bowels, confirm, rather than cure, the evil, Ayer's Pills, being mild, effective, and strengthening in their action, are generally recommended by the faculty as the best of aperients, "Having been subject, for years, to constipation, without being able to find much relief, I at last tried Ayer'u Pills. I deem it both a duty and a pleasure to testify that I have derived great benefit from their use. For over two years past I have taken one of these pills every night before retiring. I would not willingly be without them." — G. W. Bowman, 30 East Main St., Carlisle, Fa. "I have been taking Ayer's Pills and using them in my family since 1857, and cheerfully recommend them to all in need of a safe but effectual cathartic." — John M. Boggs, Louisville, Ky. " For eight years I was afflicted with constipation, which at last became so bad that the doctors could do no more for me. Then I began to take Ayor'a Fills, and soon the bowels recovered their natural and regular action, so that now I am in excellent health."— S. L. Jjoughbridge, Bryan, Texas. " Having used Ayer's Pills, witb good results, I fully indorse them for the pur. poses for which they are recommended." — T. Connors, M. D., Centre Bridge, Pa. Ayer's Pills, Dr. a. C. Ayer T. V. Powdcrly addressed a meeting of knights of labor nt DCS Motneslnst work. Ho began In a way that put his nudlouoe in n good humor. Ho said: Until a short time it was n grave question whether I should bo with you tonight. The fact was, I hnvo been in jail, and have just gotten out. No doubt you will want to hear the offense charged. Well, the fuel was, I was on a Jury, and there were eleven stubborn follows who wanted to convict two young men of larceny on circumstantial evidence, and wo argued the matter two days and nights before the Judge lot us go. The young men happened lo havo been drinking, and were in the plaeo whore tho goods wore stolen, and as far as we know no one else had been there. For my part I felt more like censuring- the commonwealth of Pennsylvania for allowing and licensing places where young men could bo made criminals of; and made tho proposal to tho jury that wo BO find. The jury did not see it as I did. My Uilk will bo rambling. If 1 took up tho twenty-two planks of tho knights of labor platform and discussed each in order, you would bo here as long as I was on tho Jury. .Seventy of tho seventy-six lodges, of Iowa of tho Ancient Order of United Workmen wore represented at tho session of the grand lodge in Hoono last week. Tho reports show tho order to bo In good condition. Storm Lake voted by a largo majority lo put in a system of water works. Manson will vote in March on tho question of bonding tho town for $-1,000 for water works. H is not stated how much of a system that town expects to got Tor so little money. Tho late operators' strike on the Milwaukee brought about u curious conflict of authority between tho railroad and tho United States government. It seems- that the railroad agent at Paralta was operator, agent and lunch-stand proprietor, as well as postmaster. When ho stepped down and out of tho railroad company's employ, they naturally asked him to tain) his lunch stand and postofllco, both in one building, oft tho railroad grounds. Feeling secure in his governmental position, ho showed no hasto in so doing, when tho railroad brought matters to a head by building an eight-foot fence around tho building, which did not help tho lunch trade or make tho postoflleo very easy of access. This action on tho part of tho railroad brought Postofllco Inspector Christian to tho front, and a compromise was of footed by which tho now railroad agent becomes deputy postmaster, with tho poslofilee in tho railroad depot. Judge Mucombor has entered into partnership in tho law practice with L. D. Holmes, one of tho loading members of tho Omaha bar. .Judge's Iowa friends wish unbounded success to tho firm of Holmes & Macorabor. ______ Sioux City had u disastrous fire last week, It was undoubtedly the work of incendiaries, as firo was found to bo burning at several different points at once. Tho loss runs up into many thousands of dollars, and includes one of the finest blocks in that enterprising young city. An exciting controversy between tho pulpit and the race course, in which the latter came off u glorious victor, at Independence, has kept tho gossips' tongues wagging for tho past nine days. In preparing for u merchants' carnival tho ladies of tho M. 13, church solicited, among other industries, of Mr. C. W. Williams, proprietor of Rush Park Stock Farm and Driving Park association. The representation was assigned to ono of tho most prominent young ladies in tho church circle, who readily consented to don tho Jockey coat and cap, AJlorton's blanket, Williams' colors, etc. In tho course of time these preparations reached tho oar of tho pastor, Rev. Pyc, when ho proceeded to air his views quite extensively and vehemently from tho pulpit. It was then proposed to omit tho troublesome representation, when a new trouble arose. The merchants and business men, who wore furnish ing tho costumes and consequently bearing tho major part of tho expense, arose as ono man and declared that if C. W. Williams was not represented they would withdraw their patronage and proceed with tho entertainment under tho auspices of some charitable institution. Tills heroic measure had an effective effect. Tho pulpit succumbed, and tho banner of Rush Driving park was nightly borne aloft at tho merchants' carnival, receiving storms of applause. ______ Tho board of health of Dow City evidently got their foot in it when they fined W. C,!. MoHonry of that place $15, or live days in Jail. Mr. McHenry buried a horse, and claims he buried it right, but tho board thought differently, and on his refusal to dig it up and bury it again, he was arrested mid fined as above. Though a wealthy man, ho went to Jail, served his time, and will now bring suit against tho town for false imprisonment. The Carroll knitting factory started their first machines Monday, three in number, and will add to the number running daily from tills time until tho whole thing is a dizzy whirl of wheels and spindles. Tho Lamb knitters were started first on underwear, and up to date tho work they are doing is highly satisfactory to tho management. _______ The Burlington, Cedar Rapids and Northern has contracted with two St. Louis breweries to furnish 800,000 tons of ice. The ice will be secured at Rockford and Rock Falls, shipped from Fort. Dodge to Harcourt, passing over tho Minneapolis and St. Louis nnd Chicago and Northwestern railroads, is required to pay full local rates on both roads, instead of the SO per cent, on each as required by tho joint rates. Tho matter will be investigated, nnd If the facts nrg found as dmrged, the companies will be compelled to refund the overcharge. A cnsa will appear In the next term of court in Hucna Vista county on appeal from a Uarnes township Justice. Ono of the grounds on which tho defense takes an »p peal is because tho justice taxed up against him &) for rent of room to hold tho trial in. K. K. Nichols has retlood from the management of tho Dow City Clipper, and will bo succeeded by A. H. and S. B. Rudil. This wo presume is the Nichols who attended the Algona normal school two years ago. A sensational affair has recently turned up at Cedar Uaplds. It accms that last August durlnjf the I. N. (i. encampment, a girl living there named Mary Harger mot a young follow named Herman HU-ket, ono of tho mllltln men. They speedily became on- gaged, and Christmas l.llcket came lo tho city to pay his fiancee a visit. Tho young lady's father was absent In Florida, and the young lady horself was boarding at her home, a family named Clark having possession. Miss Harger Is possessed of considerable money in her own right, and Bickot thought ho had struck n snap. Ho prolonged his visit, and took up his abode ut Miss Harger's house, tho young lady paying tho Clarks for -nickel's board, as well as supplying him money for all expenses. Thursday Miss Burger's father returned from Florida and Bickot made an abrupt departure. Ho took with him Miss Burger's pocket book containing hourly f50 in money nnd a note for $900, as well as other valuable papers. Instead of going to the police when tho theft was discovered, Miss Bargor went to a fortune teller. She does not want Bickot arrested, but will bo satisfied if tho valuables are returned. It has been developed that Bickot has had an unsavory character for some time, and ho had crimes charged against him before coming to Iowa. Knoxvillo Intends to bo a second Independence. Its cltl/oiis have raised $20,000 to build a mile track and they offov $-10,000 in stakes and purses for their first great meeting, August 11, 12, l!t and 14 of this year. Iowa is waking up all along tin line. A bold but unsuccessful attempt was made to rob tho Citizens' bank of Minneapolis Thursday morning. A masked man entered tho bank with a drawn revolver and ordered Assistant ('ashler McQualg and Bookkeeper Gray, tVio only occupants at tho time, into an alcove. Ho then grabbed a big valise Into which ho emptied a tray of silver and throw in a pile of bills and run for tho door. McQualg followed and yelled "police." The crowd on tho pavement made a rush for the robber and knocked him down and hold him. Ho was recognized as a former Janitor named W. II. Adams. He was jailed. ______ Throe tramps were locked in tho cala- boose at Donison lust Saturday night. In tho morning about eight o'clock they built up such a big soft coal firo in tho stove that tho building caught. Tho poor follows thought they wore to bo roasted like rats, and yelled lustily for help. There was no icoy at hand, so the sheriff took an ax and broke off tho staple, freeing tho trembling follows inside, who rapidly made off. The Iowa supremo court has sustained tho validity of tho law passed by the lost legislature giving the railroad commissioners power to fix joint rates. The majority decision was written by Justice Bock and concurred in by Granger and Given. Justices Rothrock and Robinson dissented. This decision gives groat strength to railroad control by tho state. John Corcorun, a conductor on tho Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul road, got into a fight with his brakoman, John Mahouoy, u fow days ago in Lango's saloon, near tho round house in Dubuquo. Tho battle was desperate and bloody. Mahoney fastened his teeth in Corcoran's nose, and tho bystanders had to pry his mouth open. Corcoran is a hideous looking object. Blood poisoning sot in, and his face is so badly swollen that the eyes and lines of his noso are invisible. It is thought ho will die. Muhonoy has fled tho city to escape arrest. & Co., Lowell, Mas», and Ke»ler» in M«dicSa% The Register says that notwithstanding tho recent decision of the supreme court sustaining tho Joint rate statute, some of tho railroads of the state are slow in obeying tho order of the commissioners. G. F. Gus- tafsou of Fort Dodge complains that freight Gag, bettor known as "Jumbo" Jewett, tho fat man, and a son of C. F. Jewott, the legislative member from Worth, died suddenly at the homo of ills father near Polo, Worth county, curly Sunday morning, of strangulation. Ho was about 81 years old and weighed 750 pounds. Ho arrived home from tho south Friday, where ho had spent tho past year in apparent good health. Ho bore his affliction with fortitude and was always cheerful. Word has been received within a few days from Washington to tho effect that the river laud case will be argued in tho United States supreme court on tho 21st of October next. Tho fixing of a date for hearing this case will bo a matter of relief to the parties interested, inasmuch as the iudefiulteness of future procedure had come to be a matter of much perplexity and suspense to the set-' tiers, who were so anxious to have the present case tried in the United States supreme court. Tho simple fact that a time for the hearing has been fixed will be good news to those interested in tho settlement of tho questions involved in the present case. The senatorial deadlock in South Dakota was broken Monday by the election of Jos. H. Kyle to succeed Hon. G. 0. Moody. The senator-elect is an independent, probibitiou- ist and Congregational minister. Mr, Moody, who has had two years pf it, go buck to Dead, wood and, practice Ijwv, „ f
