One of the most remarkable results of tho long continued rains of the month of April has been to create a coal 'amlne in Pocahontas Center, tho only county seat in Iowa that depends on country roads for reaching tho rest of ,he world. It Is 15 miles to the nearest •ailway station, and it has boon customary to get all supplies from either Gilmore City or Rolfo. There is no native iimber in that part of tho state and so tho people depend on coal. This did very well so long as tho roads wore passable, but tho rains of April have •ondcrod tho roads impassable. The coal supply was distributed around imong tho people, and tho llttlo wood which had boon saved up was in liko nannor made the most of, but now both iro gone and there is a genuine fuel 'amine on. Later reports say tho poo- )lo of that town have burned up all tho sidewalks, and what they will do next •emains to bo soon. It required a full column in tho Sac Sun to announce that some follow in Ohio has tried to induce tho editor to )uy his whiskey where ho could got it ihe cheapest. The Sun is a good pro- .ectionist and declares itself in favor of mtronizing home industries. A dispatch to tho Dubuquo Telegraph says that Hunting, tho big grain man at McGregor, fell dead while seated in a chair in his office Thursday morning', lo was 05 to 70 years old and of an apo"- jlectic habit. Mr. Hunting had boon engaged for many years in operating' rain elevators along the C., M. & St. ?. road in Iowa and Minnesota. Tho firm of Bassett & Co. gave way three or four years ago to Hunting & Co., Diamond Jo Reynolds being in tho company. On the death of Mr. Reynolds and the settlement of his estate his in- ierest was withdrawn and the firm became the Hunting Elevator company. This company operates from 100 to 150 elevators along tho Milwaukee system .n Iowa and Minnesota.

Balcom, THE WEEK'S IOWA NEWS. Last spring cash prices were offered jy citizens of Des Moines for the best sugar hoots raised in Iowa during the season. The analysis by tho chemists ;it the state agricultural college have seen completed. The highest was awarded to beets which showed 14.41 per cent, sugar, considered a very flattering percent., and not often excelled in the best boot growing countries in Europe. The Finn-Belvel case, which has been In process of preparation for trial for the past two weeks, at Bedford, came to a sudden end last Thursday when Mr. Belvel withdrew his plea of not guilty and entered a plea of guilty as charged in the indictment. The whole proceedings have been an effort on the part of the defense to escape trial at this term of court, and it has been owing to tho energy which Mr. Finn has put into the fight to counteract the unfair proceedings of the defense and to show them up that has at last compelled them to surrender. At 2:30 p. m. Belvel was brought into court and fined $600, and the costs of the case will amount to about $700. The Rock Island road, which already displays the daily weather signals on its first-class trains in Kansas, will soon adopt the same system on its Iowa lines. They will appear on the baggage cars, the temperature flag being in front of the others, instead of over them as shown on flag staffs, when the indications are for warmer weather. The overcoat flag, with the black square in the center, won't need any assistance on an Iowa prairie. The State Register says that when Horace Greeley died some one, possibly the typographical union, published a proposition that every printer in the United States should set 1,000 ems and send the price to a general treasurer to build a monument to the distinguished dead. The notice appeared in the Reg ister one morning and before noon Jas. Ryno, now a farmer of Madison county, then an artist in a very different line in Des Moines, walked into the office, asked for a stick and copy, set his 1,000 and directed that the price should be sent to the Greeley monument fund. It was the first type he had set in 27 years, and tho last. Ho learned the printer's trade as did Barlow Grangtr, of Thurlow Weed. The old territorial capital at Iowa City has been destroyed by fire. It was a two-story wooden structure on a side street. The legislature met in it in 1841. It was occupied until the new capitol (now a part of the university was built. , _______ State Auditor Lyons |m6 the champion mule story. In 1809 he secured from ft doctor in Gulhric county a epan of mulct). At that time they were con sidorod well advanced in, yea;>s. They lire still in service .doieg duty pu now be 30 years old and are probably older. An accurate computation of the original stock and the number now on. hand indicates that each mule still has two million and thirteen kicks to the hind leg. _ -— ____ Policeman Joo Collins of Sioux City knows more about electricity how than he did before ho took hold of an electric wire with his bare hands. One of tho electric lights refused to burn, and ho took hold of the wire to shako it up. Then he laid down on tho ground and was unconscious for an hour or so. The shock ho received did not prove .njurious, but ho will let some other 'ollow tinker with the wires in the fut- .iro. Ike Brooks, a well-known colored man who has served in tho capacity of porter in Sioux City for tho past four months, thinks ho is about to coino into possession of a half interest in a piece of property in Washington, D. C., valued at $40,000. Brooks' mother was i free woman and years ago purchased ho properly, when it wiiu^ used by tho ity as a dumping ground, at a very low price. Later on she foil In lovo with a slave named Brooks and disposed of a part of tho property to raise $1,200 with which to buy his liberty BO that she iould marry him. Ton years ago Ike's 'athor died, and shortly after his sister died, leaving a son, who was a minor. Six years ago Ike's mother died and eft tho property to Iko and his nephew, die property not to bo divided or disposed of. Iko came west and located In Sioux City, thinking nothing more of she property until a few months ago. Then ho got Mr.*VanKouron to look It up. He went to Washington and found that the minor heir had come of ago .ind was in possession of tho property. Tho records showing ike's claim to the property wore clear throughout and yes-* terday Ike received a letter from him • tolling him to conio on to Buffalo to meet him, from which place ho would accompany him to Washington and assist him in securing posossion of his interest in tho property. The letter also stated that an olTer of $1,500 per front foot had recently been made for tho property. . 'Squire B. Haviland, Jr., while hunting near Salix, with a friend, shot and killed himself April 21. The two men had got into a cart to drive home when Haviland's gun slipped through tho cracks in tho cart. Haviland tried to pull it back still holding to the barrel when it was discharged, tho charges striking him in tho face and blowing olT tho top of his head. It is the impression among tho farmers that the corn crop, though it may bo in late, will be all right if the seed is not put into the wet, cold ground, and fails to grow. "What tho farmers want to do," said a farmer near Sioux City the other day, "is to get their ground ready and not plant until the weather is good. Tho ground will warm up quickly when the hot weather comes. The rule in this latitude is that a late spring is followed by a long warm fall, favorable to corn." It turns out to be true that Senator Finn has been sued for. bastardy. The plaintiff is a Mrs. Williams of Leon, who charges him with being the father of her daughter now 12 years of age and demands $10,000 damages. Whether this is a genuine case or something trumped up by Finn's enemies remains to be determined. He has been served with notice to appear for trial on the 29th of August. The Keeley institute has come into court. John C'ullen, a young man< under indictment at Ft. Dodge for violating the liquor laws, has filed a petition before Judge Hindman, asking that the case against him be dismissed. C'ullen states that he is an inmate of the Keoley instituted at Cherokee, and that he is being rapidly cured of his appetite for liquor. His petition sets forth that with this cure has come a repugnance for the entire traffic, such as would prevent him from over engaging in it again. This ho argues should bo sufficient groundv for discontinuing the case and his diploma u guarantee of good conduct in tho future. No action has yet been taken by the court.
