Patterson of the Mason City Baptist church has had a falling out with his people, and Sunday he said in his sermon: "I don't think much of you. My only feelings toward you arc those of contempt and indifference. I never will try to injure you, as that would not become a minister of the gospel I don't want you to come to mo and say you sympathize with me and bid mo God speed, for I will take no notice of that, and it will be ploasantor for you if you just keep away from mo. I don't want you near mo. If my family are sick and in need of help I don't want any from you. All I ask Is for you to leave mo alone. It will be much bettor for you if you do. I can truly say that I never saw a more desplsablo sot of people calling themselves Christians. I will preach in the public park next Sunday afternoon at 8 o'clock, but I don't want you to come. It will bo pleasantor for you if you don't." He is organizing another church, and a big row is on. ^^___ Allerton trots with Nancy Hanks at Independence Thursday Sept. 1.

In ihe center is Des Moines, and Columbus in the quaint dress of tho fifteenth century stands upon a neighboring cloud and holds up his hands In joyous surprise and exultation. It is called the Columbian year hanger by Secretary Shaffer, and ho is particularly pleased with tho design. C. W.

Sam Clark says: Wo had a few linos of allusion to tho doath of Richard Thomas at Marlon, Iowa, on tho Oth Inst., at tho ago of 110 years, That is the age he and others had assigned for him, though there was no record of his birth and ho and others may have boon mistaken b'y a few years and extended his ago, as is usually tho case with old people. It ia not probable that there has over been a human creature since tho world began that lived longer than 105 years. Mr. Thomas was felt by his friends to have furnished evidence that ho was born before tho surrender of CornwalllB at Yorktown. Ho was a teamster in Washington City during tho war of 1812andsawthatoltyburned. He was a native of Maryland, settled early in Washington City, then moved to Ohio, and came to Iowa in 1840. Ho settled in Marion in 1840 and had the first sawmill in tho county. Justice Bradloy's successor on tho United States supremo court Is a brother of Judge Shlras of Dubuquo. Gov.

' Tho most of tho writers are represented in tho collection, but all of them are usefnl. There are some new names—Gen. Burnside, Col. E. W. Bice, and others. There are especially fine letters by Gov. J. W. Grimes, Mrs. Grimes, Geo. W. Me- Crary, Judge Tabor, John A. Dix, Gen, Samuel R. Curtis, Gen. G. M. Dodge, Gen. John A. Logan, Horatio Seymour, Gorritt Smith, H. M. Hoxlo, John R. Dillon, etc., etc. Some of those letters, possess historic value, though many of' them refer to current political events. Several months ago ex-Senator Harlaiv sent just about such a package of letters to the collection. These were esr- peclally valuable, as they included, names of moi^prominent in early Iowa.. The Register says: Tho general in, command of the national guard at Homestead is Clint. Snowden, well known to Iowa newspaper men as formerly editor of the Chicago Times, and subsequently Frank Hatton's partner in his Chicago newspaper venture. He filled every position on the Times from reporter to manager. Mr. Story thought no other newspaper maa equal to him. It was Snowdon who, while city editor, reported a wedding in high life which the families interested had announced should not be reported in the Times, a paper they intensely hated. He had detailed a reporter for tho service but he was denied admission to the house. The reporter reported the fact to Snowden. The latter hurriedly called a cab, sprang into it and was driven to th| establishment of Kinsley, the famous rescauranteur, who was to furnish the supper, and when the waiters filed out from Kinsley's, Snowden was among them, immaculate in white tie and spike tail coat. He saw the marriage, secured a list of the guests and all other information, "toted" coffee and wine as the other waiters did, and the next morning the Times had the best and most complete account of the wedding that was published in the city.
