Kidcl, formerly general manager of tho American Pill company at Spencer, and who was sentenced at the last term of court to state's prison for three months for forgery, inasmuch as he changed the special finding of a previous'trial he had, will be tried at the sessi'on'of district court which convened Tuesday last for bribery. He is charged with having offered ex-Sheriff P. N, Madden several hundred dollars to pack a jury for him. It is also alleged that he mtid'e advances to Deputy SltorilT Lewis to>secure certain men as witnesses and iiiBtruct them how to testify- It is understood that Kidd has employed Attorney Irwin of St. Paul to condwet tho defense.. : Joseph Hamilton, who has spent tho last 17 years of his life in chains, died at Benton on Sunday. He had a tori'l- ble mania, a thirst for human blood, which nothing could appease, and he had to be kept in irons all tho time. When about 25 years of ago Hamilton acquired this appetite by tasting blood in a flght. Ho was watching a sparring match,, when he saw blood flowing from the nose of one of the boxers and went wild instantly. Drawing a knife he plunged it into the heart of a bystander and drank his blood as it flowed. Ho killed another man before ho was arrested. A. Lowentahl, a Des Moines traveling man, is laid up for repairs at Carroll with a broken leg and several bruises. These were inflicted by Dr. Donnelly, who alleges that tho sportive traveling man sent a note to his wife which was objectionable, and had otherwise made himself too free around the millinery store kept by Mrs. Donnelly. ______ ' Tom Bowman says he isn't a candidate for re-election to congress. His private business needs his attention. That's funny, says the Carroll Herald. Tom has been in office for 24 years, and just after sneaking a part of Henry George's book into the congressional record ho concludes that he ought to retire to private life. Tom is right; a majority of his constituents are of the same opinion. _______ Malvern Leader: Webster county is in the throes of a school teachers' strike. Wages in the county have become so reduced that competent teachers refused longer to teach and all went out on a strike. The directors in some instances raised wages to the desired standard and re-employed the old teachers, but in many districts the old schedule is being adhered to and in consequence scholars are enjoying an indefinite vacation. The teachers ought to succeed, for if any class deserve well it is the school teachers.

The swindle is a clever one, and though it has been played on the farmers for several years, a great many swallow the bait. Stormy Jordan threatens to take the stump or the rostrum as an evangelist. He would succeed beyond question in attracting large audiences and would doubtless do a great deal of good. Stormy has traveled many miles over the broad and rooky road as purveyor of nose paint and reptiles of various sizes of venom, and to those interested in this special branch of natural history could a most entertaining and instructive tale unfold. The Methodists in conference at Omaha represent an estimated member ship of 4,980,240, it being the largest protestant church in the country. The Baptist are a close second, having 4,292,291 as their membership. In the world are 20,000,000 Episcopalians, 16, 000,000 Methodists, 15,200,000 Roman Catholics, 11,100,000 Presbyterians and 8,600,000 Baptists. Jeriness-Miller lectured on "Dress Reform" at Iowa City the other day and the result is the very general adoption by the ladies of that city of the " Jenness-Miller rainy day dross, which the present weather affords plenty of opportunity of wearing. This is the first inroad into Iowa by the ' dress reformers," but dross reform clubs are contagious and spread rapid- The entire stock must be sold m a short time. ri. The trotting meeting at Independence this year will surpass any meeting ever held anywhere before, it will last two weeks, beginning Aug. 22 and closing Sept. 8. The enormous total of $200,000 will be hung up in purses.

Nine-tenths of the samples received from wells are found to be tainted, some of them so badly that it is highly dangerous to use them for cooking or" drinking. Placed under the big microscope thejr' are seen to be fairly alive with bachte* ria. Among the curiosities of the state board are some microbes of diphtheria mid scarlet fever. Monona county has a county seat war, For tho last two years there has been a ittlo county seat war raging in that county between Onawa, tho present lounty seat, and Castana, a small vll- ago twelve miles to tho east. Last spring Onawa erected a court house at i cost of $20,000, $15,000 to bo paid by tho town and !J5,000 by tho county, upon tho payment of which Onawa was to give a clear title to tho land and tho court house was to become tho property of the county. Castana people did not think tho deed valid and so enjoined iho board from paying over tho $5,060. Tho trial to tost tho validity of the deed came oil Saturday. Judge Gaynor has • not, as yet, rendered his decision. Gas- 'iiina. and Onawa each feel sanguine of success. _______ Pocahontas Center's fuel famine has joen relieved by flat boats. A train on the C. & N. W. stopped near Rolfe, ibout fifteen miles north of Pocahontas, uid dropped oil' about 1,500 pounds of coal, which was Heated down to the reczing citizens of tho county seat on a flat boat, as nearly all the country s under water. Farming will be impossible on much of tho land this year. A (lowing well has been discovered at [owa Falls, in tho northern part of tho iown, and it is now thought that the natter of a suitable water supply for iho waterworks has been settled. The well WHS sunk by tho civil engineer om- )loyed by ^the city council t6 plat tho ;own and select a suitable water supply. The water has sufficient head to bubble out of the opening made, and another well will be sunk further up the vein .n the hope of securing a large flow and a bigger head. At the seato encampment of tho grand army at Ottumwa last week the 'ollowing officers were elected for the nsuing year: Department commander, T. J. Steadman of Council Bluffs; sen- .or vice-commander, J. D. Sperry of Cedar Rapids; chaplain, Rev. Jesse Cole of Hull. The foreman of tho Daily Advocate office at Omaha came near wrecking she publication of that paper one day ast week by getting drunk. Bishop Waldron, who is as much at home in a printing office as in the pulpit, made up the forms and got the paper out with a ittle delay. That kind of bishop can always find a job. While walking on the street at Marshalltown on Wednesday Col. Elliot Shurtz, ex-postrnater and ex-alderman, fell and sustained a very serious fracture of his left hip. Few men have survived as many misfortunes as he. , En the civil war he was literally shot to pieces. Two years ago he accidentally shot his right arm off at the shoulder, ileveland removed him from the post- office, and financial reverses absorbed his last dollar. He failed to get all the accident insurance for the loss of his arm, and also failed of re-election as councilman this spring.
