Johnson of Corwith has in his possession his original discharge from tho volunteer service of tho Into war, that is original in extreme. It wus printed in full by Mr. Johnson. The blanks that are usually filled in with pen and Ink were printed in, ho being at that time in charge of tho government printing office. When tho general order came, under which ho could bo released, he sot it up, printed it on real genuine sheep skin, carried it to Gen. H. C. Strong, and no one over had anything to do with it but these two. Tho signature of Gen. Strong being tho only pen and ink work on tho discharge. Wo think It safe to say that this is tho only discharge of tho kind ever issued, out of many thousand. It is an instrument of valuo and curiosity as well. It is dated Nov. 21, 18(l!>. Tho local Knights of Pythias lodge of Sioux City are making elaborate preparations for tho reception and entertainment of tho Iowa grand lodge, which moots there Aug. 7, 8, and 9. _________ Tho Flax Palaco paper says that Winno- bago county will break more raw prairie and build more farm houses this season than in any ten years heretofore. The Chicago & Northwestern company discharged all Its switchmen in tho Chicago yards last week. Tho reason given is that switchmen and not tho company have been running the road for tho past two or three years, and tho time had come when It must bo determined who is master of tho situation. Plenty of now men, not members of tho union, were found to take tho places of those discharged. Tho company seems also to bo carrying out tho same policy on all its lines, as nt Dos Moines all their switchmen were discharged last Thursday. Tlio company simply did tho striking instead of waiting for the men to do it. New men wore In readiness and took tho places of tho old ones without serious inconvenience to tho company or to tho public. So many good railroad 111011 arc lying idle In Iowa now that it was no trouble to find plenty of men to 1111 tho places. General Agent Han- zard said that tho yard work was in as good shape as it had boon at the close of any previous day and that there had been no delay of trains. Miss Ida Hultin was elected president of Western Unitarian conference at Chicago last week. Miss Mary A. Sufl'ord preached the principal sermon. In 1871), Iowa cultivated (!02 acres of to twcco and in ISS',1 only 122 acres. Iowa isn't a tobacco state. Tho United States supremo court has clo- idcd that tho Pullman Cur company must iiay taxes where its cars run. An Iowa case arose at Ft. Dodge on this question, mid Attorney General Stone when asked, "what will you (Jo with tho Iowa case now dint a decision has boon handed down'l" said, "I will push it at onco. I have sent for a copy of tho decision in tho Pennsylvania case, and will govern my action by ts contents. The Pennsylvania law is more questionable than the lowu law and this decision is a practical settlement of tho juostion and u, vietcny for the state." The Capital claims that Win. McMillan, :i traveling man of Atlantic, Iowa, has prob- iibly the most complete, extensive and interesting collection of curiosities to bo found n tho state of Iowa, not excepting the rare iollcctton at Cedar Uupids in tho Masonic library. Mr. McMllliun has !J() cases, containing over 2,000 curiosities, to gather which it has taken twenty years of time and thousands of dollars. His collection embraces everything of curious nature— old and rare curios from all parts of tho world, but especially from various parts of tho United States. Mr. McMillan exhibited those curiosities at tho last Iowa state fair. Between live and six hundred miners attended a meeting ut Oskaloosa last Thursday. President Scott and others wore present and spoke. The members of the union were urged to stand firm and accept nothing but a' concession to their demand for eight hours work. There is considerable excitement in Sioux Jity over tho strange conduct of tho pastor of tho Methodist church at Calliope, Hov. W. M. lluor. Tho other night ho was found by a policeman wandering in tho streets in a part of town noted for its disreputable louses, apparently drunk. Ho was asked by a policeman to go homo, and ho asked to be shown to the Merchant's hotel. This was done, and ho wont there, but soon came away and was soon on tho street again. Ho was arrested and taken to tho hotel and there registered a fictitious name, Later tie was very indignant because ho was ar- sosted and declared ho was not drunk, and his friends are making all kinds of excuses for him. A linseed oil mill is the latest result of Fort Dodge enterprise. A company has been formed with II. W. Crawford, one of the most prominent flax buyers in this vicinity, at the head, and a $35,000 plant will bo put in. The mill will have a capacity enabling it to crush 400 bushels of flax daily. Manning, in Carroll county, had a lire last week which swept away property to the estimated valuo of 8100,000. Middleton, u village some ten miles west of Burlington, is cursed with an organized baud of freebooters, thieves and vandals. The gang is composed of young men, ranging from 15 to 20 years of ago, and their purpose is to prey on the people of the community. Their latest acts have been to stone and maltreat Kev. MoEweu, of the Presbyterian church at Middleton, because he denounced them in the pulpit. They also wrote a prominent merchant, who was to testify against one of the gang, that if lie did not aweur to certain lies in favor of the young culprit, they would burn his house and store and poison his horses. There seems to bo no wny of controlling the gang, on account of tho inadequate police force, and much apprehension is felt among tho citizens. A detective will probably bo engaged to ferret out tho leaders. Tho Iowa Sunday School convention will bo hold at Mason City, June 10-18. Mason City provides free entertainment for all who may attend. Prominent Sunday school workers from Chicago, Peorla, Minneapolis and other points outside tho state will bo present, and a most Interesting pro- gramme has been prepared. How tho liquor element Is still on top in and around Dubuquo is illustrated in a recent dispatch to tho Register from that city, which says: Returns made to tho collector of internal revenue for this district show that during tho past year 49,- (XX) barrels of boor wore produced in tho district, which Includes -10 counties. Of this almost 4,500 barrels wore produced in this city, exclusive of tho product of an ale brewery. In spito of prohibition tho manufacture of beer Is steadily increasing, ono brewery having sold 4,000 mere barrels than last year outside of Dubuquo. There are only four breweries In tho district. On tho 25lh day of April there was $500,- (XX) In tho treasury of Iowa. A four year old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Chris. Waughan near Huthvon was burned to death last week. Tho Press says tho ihlld's clothing caught lire from some burning grass and burned entirely off before assistance arrived, death occurring in a few liours. Sometime ago John Dooley of Emmets'- burg was put off a U., C. H. & N. passenger train, tho conductor refusing to accept an old excursion ticket. Dooloy sued tho company for $2,000 damages. Last week tho case was tried before Judge Curr, and the jury gave Dooloy $200 damages. Tho caso will probably go to tho supremo court. Tho executive committee of tho Iowa Republican association at Washington, D. C., ins made arrangements with a St. Louis firm to furnish 10,000 tin cups made of American tin, for use In the coming cam- )aigii. They have also arranged for samples of No. 10 Dutch sugar, which will bo sent out to show tho people. A certificate from tho treasury examiner, showing tho onuincnoss of samples, will bo attached. OHUEOH ANNIVERSARY. I'lio JIiiptlHlH C'olobrnti) Their Tlilr- tlotli Your In AlKonu— Some Notou of lutoroHt. To tho Editor: Tho thirtieth anni- vorsury aorvlcoa of tho Baptist church ivoro well attended, by its members tuid 'rionds, in tlio morning-, afternoon and cvoning 1 HOHsions of hint Sunday. Tho joauUful lloral decorations added much .o tho attractions of tlio house of worship. The sonnon in tlio morning 1 was lolivorod by tho pastor, llov. W. L. Wolfo participating. In tho afternoon i very enjoyable service was found in tlio calling of the roll of all tho present nombors with responses from o:u;h, in •ominineensen of formoi 1 Union, and in scripture sonUmont, interspersed with tho singing of old time hymns. In tho evening tho principal features wore an ntoresting sketch of tho church's his- ,ory read by Mitm Cramer; a sketch of jo Sunday school by Anna Johnson; a listory of tho young people's society by Miss Bailey. The chief facts of tho church 'H his- ,ory wore published two years tigo. Some later history reveals a steady growth in members, linancial strength, uid in organization. During tho present pastorate of two and one-half years, /lie church has assumed linancial self- support for the lli-st time. Fifty-two )orsoiis have been added to the church, i good proportion of whom are among Is most useful members. A woman's nission circle and two mission bands 'or young people and children have Xion organized and well supported. Pile Womons' Mission circle and tho Vineyard Workers' band wore orgaii- 'zed and have' been conducted under jho efficient leadership of Mrs. F. M. smith. Of tho former she has boon ^resident since its organization, of tho alter, Miss Lillie Howard is president, uid of tho Willing Workers' band, Miss "Jlara Burroughs was tho organizer, uid is the loved loader. All throe organizations have raised creditable sums 'or missionary and other purposes, besides holding regular meetings for im- wrting missionary instruction. Miss Johnson's paper gave an in- .oresting list of former Sunday school workers, extending over a dozen years >iist, and also mtido mention of tho present flourishing condition of tho school vith James Chapiri as superintendent. \tiss Bailey's paper spoko of tho young looplos' society as having originated in ,ho young peoples' prayer meeting, begun about four years ago. The society ,vas organized less than two years ago, and is proving to bo an excellent means for training tho young people. Its noetings are well attended and interesting. Tlio young men present have often equaled and sometimes exceeded ,he young ladies both in numbers and nterest. Tlio recent well attended octure by tho pastor on "The Huguenots" wus under its auspices. It has a printed programme of prayer meeting topics, and is fully organized, with the reader of tho paper as its faithful president. This church also bore a leading part in tho division of the Upper Des Moines association, and in the formation of the new and flourishing Northern Iowa association. This association in the seven months of its existence has held three meetings, all of which have strengthened its churches and workers. Both church and Association will doubt* less have a fruitful future. A HOME-MAP*; harness at Stough's.
