Dr. Keeley, who is now at the head of the famous Dwight institute, was once a poor boy. He learned the painter's trade in his youth and tramped through Illinois looking for a job.

Senator Allison has introduced a bill appropriating $100,000 for a public building ut Muscntine. Congressman Hamilton has introduced a petition from the president and faculty of Cornell college praying that no appropriation bo made for the world's fair unless it bo closed *on Sunday. Miss A. L. Tims of Independence, a young lady about 21 years of age, is the horse reporter for that famous locality whore Axtel was developed. Miss Tims represents u largo number of daily papers during the racing season. She is thoroughly informed, and knows more about horses and pedigrees than almost any man in Iowa—certain it is that she knows more on these subjects than any newspaper man. She is an orphan, was raised by a dear, good aunt, and she is modest, ladylike and makes friends of all whom she meets. She is full of energy and wedded to newspaper work. $11.50—over the Milwaukee road.

Dubuque, Storm Lalce, and Spirit Lake were candidates for tho state regatta but Dubuque offered no special inducements while Storm Lake, whose claims were supported by the Illinois Central, and Spirit Lake, theB., C. R. & N.'s favorite, offered §500 each. Spirit Lake got it by a unanimous vote, as the accommodations and the course are both superior there. It was decided to hold the regatta July 12 and 13. The races for state crews will be half- mile contests, best two out of three, instead of a single race of a mile and a half as heretofore. This will be better for the spectators and less exacting on the oarsmen. Besides it will make the contests closer. The free-for-all will be a mile and a half as formerly. There will be four free-for-alls, one four,, one pair, one double and one single. The canoe, swimming and tub races customary heretofore will be ommited this time.
