On tho third formal ballot in the convention of tho Ninth congressional district, held In Atlantic, Senator A. L. Hagor of Adair county was chosen to lead the republican party In tho contest this fall. Before the ballot Was completed a sufficient number of votes had been cast to nominate, and tho secretary had uot yet announced tho result when a motion was made to make it unanimous. Tho contest lay between Hager, Major Curtis, and Hon. E. W. Weeks of Guthrle county. The Potta- wattarnlo delegation being unable to agree upon any one of the Council Bluffs statesmen, did not present a candidate. Major Curtis led tho field up to tho third ballot, when the vote of Audubon, Montgomery, and Mills, in the order given, which had boon about evenly divided between tho candidates, was "withdrawn and cast solidly for Hager. , Tho convention of the republicans of the Second Iowa congressional district was hold at Davenport. The representation was light. Capt. E. D. Hadley of Clinton county, and John Monroe of Muscatine were named for congress to succeed Hon. Walter I. Hayes of Clinton, the incumbent. The nomination of Monroe was made unanimous after the first ballot. Monroe is a liberal, and the anti-prohibitiouists are delighted at their victory over tho stalwart prohibitionists in that corner of the state. The friction between the two clans was not very pronounced in the convention, but it was there. The Cedar Rapids Republican announces that contracts have been lot for a new steam heating plant in that city to the American District Steam Heating company of Lockport, N. Y. The Holly system is to be used and tho company has given bonds to have the entire work completed by the middle of September. It will be owned and operated by the electric light company, and the pipe to be laid this year will cover all the business portion of the city. State Bank of Bancroft T.

A Yakima, Wash., paper has a mention of Des Moines 1 famous newsboy: "Mose" Jacobs, known throughout the interior of the United States as the only follower of his trade who ever amassed a fortune from it, called on the Republic man this week. " Mose" started on nothing some ten years ago, and is now worth from $15,000 to $20,000. He takes a three months' trip every year, and his aged father and mother live in luxury. The writer knew him when he couldn't buy his supply of Registers (Ret Clarkson's paper) without borrowing money for that purpose. An example of what frugality and industry will do, boys. ______ The great five-year-old race of last year between Allerton and Nancy Hanks is to be repeated this season on the kite-shaped track at Independence. Budd Doble has wired an acceptance of the terms proposed by C. W.' Williams to match the two. The race will occur Thursday, Sept 1, the winner to take the whole purse of $10.000. The Thursday preceding will occur the Allerton-Axtel race for a like purse. Allerton is showing up well. He was aent a mile last week in 2:21, finishing strong in 1:04. _______ A good roads convention has been called to meet in Des Moines on Aug. 16. All cities, counties and commercial bodies are urged to appoint delegates, ______ United States Pension Agent Marine of the Des Moines office has not been able to pay all the pensions due for this quarter for lack of funds. Redistributed $850,000, which was received July 5, and as soon as the remainder is received in accordance with the bill passed last Saturday he will send out the remainder. Thus far about 26,000 pensioners have been paid for the quarter, and there are 52,638 enrolled at this agency June 30. It takes about 1,000,000 to make the quarterly payment. he sued for $10,000 damages. As far as can be learned the reason of the contemplated dishonorable discharge, tot there has been no discharge yet, was because Lowery was unsoldierly, and refused to parade Memorial day with the company. Lowery has been a member of the company for several years, and has been a good soldier until recently. The trouble seems to date from an unfortunate affair which occurred last summer. A detail of the company went up the river to the company's range for target practice and in sonic manner a valuable cow wa8 killed. It was charged to Lowery and he was court-martialed but was not forced to pay for the cow. It occasioned considerable contention and since then, so Lowery claims, Capt. Sherman and his officers and noncommissioned officers have taken pains to make it uncomfortable for him and will fire him. Ho wants damages. At Webster City last Thursday morn ing the power house of the city electric light and waterworks plant caught fire from the heat from the boilers. The damage done was between $1,500 and $2,000. It was a frame building, brick veneered, making it hard to reach the flames. The machinery was damaged slightly by heat and water. A now 200 horse-power Corliss engine, a now dynamo and other improvements were being made. The city will be without light several days. Johnson Brigham, the president of the republican league of Iowa, in response to many inquiries concerning the manner of organizing republican clubs throughout tho state, which want an alliance with the state league, issues an address wherein he says: "The general answer is plain and direct. The way to organize is to organize. That is, the way to organize is to start a list of names under a call for a meeting for organization at a given time and place. Get as large a number of names as possible. Meet as per roll call and elect temporary or permanent officers as you see fit. Report to the the secretary at once. A little later the secretary will have report blanks to send you for your return report to him. But don't wait for them. Give him a list of your club officers, also the number and names of your club members." Then follows the form of constitution, which will be furnished by the secretary upon request. As Mr. Brigham says: "That is all there is of the matter, save a remittance of $1 from each township club, and $2 from each incorporated town, city and ward club, to the secretary of the republican league of Iowa, Mr. P. R. Conaway, Brooklyn, Iowa, whose receipt clinches your club's relation with the state league. The chief portion of this sum will go to the national league for campaign literature, etc., and tho rest will be used for correspondence, and the regular expenses of tho campaign, a due accounting for which moneys will be made at the next annual meeting." Nearly a thousand republican clubs will be organized in Iowa during tho coming campaign. . W AMTTTFi Salesmen local and A IN 1 C>L) traveling. To represent our well known house.

A Chicago woman washed a soiled garment in gasoline the other day and undertook to smooth it with a hot iron. She will spend the next month or two coaxing her eyebrows out again. Dr. Alexander Schadenberg, a botanist, recently discovered the largest' flower on record in the Philippine islands. It was nearly a yard in diameter, and weighed more than 22 pounds. Gen. Field, the people's party candidate for vice president, held the rank of major in the confederate army. The generalship which he fills was a peace office, conferred by Gov. Walker in 1870. The senate is a great place for chums. Beck and Allison were such a pair, as were Don Cameron and Butler, Vest and Plumb, Edmunds and Thurman. Another notable case of congres* sional Damon and Pythias is that of Tom Reed and Bounce Cockran in the house. Judge Turney, democratic candidate for governor of Tennessee, the Nashville American says, " stands six feet four inches In his stockings, weighs over 250 pounds, and looks like he could throw a bull. The next governor of Tennessee is a sound man from scalp to heel tap." Judge Gresham is reported as saying the other day to one of his boyhood friends at Corydon, Ind. : " When Boh Ingersoll becomes a Christian and Ben Butler forgives his enemies I will consider the matter of accepting a nomina? tlon on other than the republican ticket." George Unverzagt of Cincinnati has , eaten 930 lemons in the last sixty days, He had heard that lemons would cure rheumatism, and the prescription which he followed was to eat one lemon th§ first day and increase the dose on^' each day for thirty days, and then de-. crease at the same rate for thirty dftya more. He is now too ill to tell whether he has the rheumatism ov not. CHINA silks for ladies shirt wftiatp Galbvaith's.
