Woods, of Fort Dodge, democratic candidate for congress In this district last fall, was elected president and general manager for the company. Mr. Woods will remain in Chicago and glvo his attention to tho supervision of the business. Mr. Charles Aldrich is anxious to procure for preservation to tho collection In tho state library, autograph letters of tho mom bors of tho three Iowa constitutional conventions. Thcso conventions wore held respectively In tho years 1844,1840, and 1857. Many of tho letters doubtless possess much historical Importance. It Is intended to bind them In volumes containing tho printed reports of tho proceedings of tho conventions, with portraits of the members, so far as they can bo had. There are eight presidential postofllces in Iowa still hold by democrats. Tho terms of most of tho incumbents expire In '02, Lewis Carlson of Pilot Mound delivered ton two-year old steers in Dayton last week that cost him at feeding time $185. Ho fed them three months and nine days and sold thorn for f!03, a not gain of $207.90 on tho steers nlono, and ho has a nice lot of hogs that followed them, yot to sell. Tho twino trust Is evidently scared at tho success of the marsh grass twine made in Iowa. Although there has boon but littlo change in market quotations on tho sisal and inanilln liber which tho trust uses, they have reduced their prices to agents very greatly, so that their twino will probably retail to farmers this year at nine or ton cents per pound instead of tho lil to 10 cents which they charged last year. The manufacturers of grass twino did not intend to charge more than six cents for an amount that will equal a pound of trust twino. Tho alliance twino company of Dos Moinos has succeeded in producing an article of twino which can bo used upon tho common binders without any change and is equal in strength and keeping qualities to sisal or manilla. Tho News says: "Some of tho eastern twino manufacturers have become scared and lire making groat efforts to buy up till or a majority of tho stock in tho Dos Moinos company in order to prevent tho cheap twine from being put upon tho market. Tho company and ull its stockholders should stand firm and refuse all offers, no matter how tempting, to deliver this Important industry into tho hands of its enemies. The farmers of tho west will stand by them in this flght as they did in tho barbed wire fight of u few years ago." Mrs. J. Ellen Foster will begin an Iowa lecturing tour after April 20.

Among tho stock on tho farm is 1,000 head of polled augus cattle and forty-eight head of imported pedigreed porchoron horses valued at $00,000. Ho employs sixty-five men to do the work on tho farm. Tho land improvements and stock represent an investment of $300,000. L. S. Coffin, having boon requested to draft a bill to bo introduced in tho Now York legislature, providing for tho protection of tho lives of railway train men by tho abolition of tho old common link pin device for coupling cars and the hand brake, has prepared and forwarded a very strong measure, and will appear before the railroad committees at Albany next week in its behalf. The fortieth annual session of tho state medical association will be hold in Waterloo April 15,10 and 17.

A Crowded HOIIHO to Soo School Tonclior—Something About JIU IMiiy. Aiden Benedict and his company played to a big houso Friday evening, and from Algona wont to Sioux Falls. Thoir coming horo was accidental, and was duo to thoir not getting tho right date at Sioux City. There is but one opinion as to tho troupe, and that is- that they gavo tho best performance over in Algona. In talking of tho play Mr. Benedict told some tilings that will bo of interest to his old acquaintances. Ho wrote it himself, taking tho outline from a novel called "Tho Vendetta." Ho was HO confident that ho had a good thing that ho ordered $5,000 worth of advertising sheets before his play was all written. He acted the character of "Fablo Romani" himself tho first season, but the business management being more remunerative, ho hired Mr, Lawrence. He has just joined his company after booking dates for next season, and took part horo simply to fill a vacant place. He says ho has nearly all "ono week" or longer stands for next year, and those In tho best theaters in tho cities. His play is an acknowledged success, lie ban- already made big money on it, and next year gets tho best openings. As a the-., atrical manager ho is getting a name in all tho dramatic circles. His advertising paper, some of which was put up horo, is of his own design and the handsomest and most expensive used by any company.
