Smith making tho purchase for me. When sent to the oltieo of tho express company they refused to receive and l>e responsible for it unless prepaid by Mr. Jones. Tho express charges were paid by him, but tho liquor never reached me. Presented my bill to company which they refused to pay on tho grounds that It was not properly packed, that tho Jug was broken before it left Chicago. Tho whisky mid jug co«l. ^.yfi, and express charges wero $1. I do not know whether a railroad commission in tho prohibition state of Iowa wish to collccf- u bill for whishy, but 1 do mil, feel like losing it. It would be such an easy matter to steal or drink tho whisky tlmt u broken jug- is not, good evidence of lost lltnmr. Can you help mo out in this} If so what must I do! 1 think I am entitled to tho charges when tho whisky never left Chicago. There t\ro !«W> grand army posts in Iowa, with !>0,<IOO members. Tho folly of practical jokes was seen again ut Ottumwu last week. Henry Loupo started to sit down in a chair, when a companion jerked It from under him.

Tho state Unitarian convention last week adopted resolutions favoring having tho world's fair open on Sundays, and also religious services provided for by all denominations. An unsuccessful attempt to draw the color lino in religion has just boon decided at OUinmvn. Last winter a colored baker named McCruckon Joined tho M. E. church by letter. This aroused tho Indignation of some of the mstholic members of tho church whoso lovo for tho colored brother did not extend to church association, and they put, in a vigorous protest to MeCrnekon's admission. Hov. Thorn, tho pastor, was finally forced to hand tho loiter back to him and deny him admission to tho fold. MeCruek- on, however, is a Christian of muscular and determined persuasion and ho appealed to Bishop Joyce, who has just replied that church membership can't bo severed by more return of a loiter when it has onco been accepted, and who orders tho church to admit McCrackon. J. S, Clarkson was elected president of tho National Republican Club organization. Ho is at Hot Springs for rheumatism and cannot as yot got started on his European trip. _ Tho bicycle fever has struck Spencer again.

AH wont merry until tho third dogreo was reached, and then camo exposure. "It scorns," says tho Press, " in tho third they have an India-rubber rat and a oolulloid snake, run by clock work inside, which aro very natural indeed. Tho Idea is to lot them run at tho candidate, to BOO if ho will Hindi. When the snake ran ut the girl she kept her nerve all right, but when tho rat tried to run up her trousers' log shogrubbod her imagiiiauy skirts and jumped on u refrigerator that was standing near, which is, used In tho work of tho fourth degree, u£t screamed for murder. Tho girl is ii/Sun- bor of the order, however, and there is no help for It." _ Mason City hold a mooting last week to consider starting a chickory factory. Tho state encampment of the Sons of Veterans will bo hold at Ottumwu, Juno 10 and II. _ At Nowton a society has boon formed to encourage matrimony. Tho main features uro thus put down: Fifty marriageable. young men go In, and tho ilrst follow who married receives from oucli of tho other forty-nine, $u, or a total of nearly $300, enough to glvo him quito u start.
