It is aid that only one similar instance is ecorded in medical annals and that it •as the case of Gov. Lucius Robinson ho was affected the same way and was uccessfully treated in the same institu- on. Miss Dolliver about a year ago as opening a bottle of ginger ale, the ork from which flew out and struck or in the oyo, inflicting an apparently .ight injury, but considerable pain, he was treated by local oculists and it •as supposed she had entirely recov- red. Some time afterwards she found :uit her left eye was wholly bereft of ight. Miss Dollivor was kept in a ro- umbent position in a dark room for 10 eeks and finally the retina flowed back nd once more attached itself to the lioroid. The third annual convention of the ^hotographer's association of Iowa will e held in Dos Moines from Aug. 2 to 4, nclusive. . Allortonand Delmarcli trot at Des doines for §10,000, and Guy Manager nd Boy Wilkes pace for $5,000 at the aces Aug. 15-20. Half rates given -on 11 roads. The state executive council has ap- iointed the tax commission. The commission was created by the last legtsla- ure to prepare, so the law states, abet- er and more equitable plan of taxation, ne report to be printed and sent to the members of the general assembly by lie secretary of state. The council re- eived a number of of applications for tie position and has appointed the fol- owing well-known men: Chas. E. Whiting of Monona county; Chas. A. •larke of Cedar Rapids; Aug. Post of doulton, and A. E. Poyneer of Mon- our. The law requires that not more tian two of the commission shall be of ne political party, Post and Poyneer ieing republicans and "Whiting and Jlarke democrats. The commission ill meet Aug. 1 and organize. The ompensation of the members is $5 per .ay and expenses, provided it is not iver 30 days. Preparations are. progressing nicely or the great flax palace exposition which opens at Forest City, Sept. 13, with Gov. McKinley, Weaver, Dolliver, Buchanan, Vilas, Mrs. DeVoe and Dr. Thomas to address the people. ?hey expect the largest crowd of peo- )le that has ever been called together n northern Iowa. The long war, bitter enmities, and jeaseless strife between the twin cities >f Humboldt and Dakota City are all iO be swallowed up in a union of heart, soul, and corporation. Negotiations to ,hat end have been progressing for some time, and definite arrangements lave been made by consolidation committees from each place, which will be carried out as soon as some equitable disposition of debts can be made. The name of the new town will he put to a vote of the people of both places, but it s conceded that Humboldt has the preference. ___ The Andrews Opera company have seen playing to crowded houses in Des koines the past week. They have pul a first class company on the road. Three men were bitten by a mad dog at Port Dodge. The brute ran amuck trough the streets, hut was finally shoi and killed by the marshal. Tho greatest anxiety awaits the outcome of the wounds from the dog's fangs. During a thunder storm at Garner Friday, a daughter of Henry O'Brien iving three miles northeast, was struck by lightning and instantly killed, whil she was playing in the yard with a number of other children. The father was working near by, and strange t say he was not hurt, nor were any o the other children injured in the least The Upper Des Moines Editorial asso ciation, comprising all the counties o the Tenth congressional district an some others, i& trying to effect a loca organization in each county to co-oper ate with the district associations. Th county organizations have for their oh ject a more perfect union in the matte of contracting foreign advertising, a well as promoting fraternal feeling Several counties have already perfecl ed an organization and it is expecte that by the next meeting of the distric association all will have done so. Th committee having the matter incharg is made up as follows: Kossuth count; Yernj S. Sliis; Wright county, C. A Sohaf?ter, Hamilton county, J. W. Lee Webster , L. R. Train; Pooahontas, P O, Barren; p&lo A.lto, J^ W, Utter Emmet, f t 35. Jen^ne; H. Jfioljpl; CJay, $J« i,Wi L. M. Adams; Cerro Gordo, Chas. A. looley; Hancock, H. H. Bush; Craword, Chas. K. Meyers; Story, W. O. •ayne; Boone, Earl Billings; Plymouth, E. D. Chassell. The great race between Axtell and Ulcrton, the result of which has been •orrying the brains of the talent for ho past six months, is practically de- lared off. C. W. Williams has re* eived word from Budd Doble that Axell is not in condition to start and in- tcad will return to his quarters at Toro Haute. _______ At a public meeting held at Emmets- urg a committee was appointed to raft articles of incorporation and solic- tstock to build a milo track. The ncoting was an enthusiastic one and lore is every prospect of dirt flying on new regulation mile track this fall, 'ho company will havo an authorized apital of §50,000, and $10,000 paid up. The farmers and business men of [uniboldt county are taking an active itcrestin the solution of the road quos- .011. Under tho leadership of Dr. G. [. Clarke of that place an organiza- .on has just boon formed called tho ounty Road Improvement association. The meeting was hold in Humboldt and :ie officers elected were: O. F. Avoy, resident, and Dr. G. H. Clarke, seero- ary. Vice-presidents are to be appoint- d from each township. The first moot- ig was devoted to a discussion of tho ubject in general. Papers on " Drain- go of Highways" and "National and tate aid for County Roads" were read, 'he association will have another meot- ng on Auff. 13, at which delegates to 10 Des Moinos road convention will bo looted and tho plan of tho work in the ounty further developed. Tho mem- ers mean business and some sort of im- rovemont in country roads will cer- ainly be planned and carried out. The oss by .impassable roads last spring was nough to have built miles of the very nest of permanent highways. Waterloo's Daily Courier announces hat Smith, Lichty & Hillmun company, wholesale grocers of that city, received , direct importation of a carload of new apan tea last Sunday. The consignment, consisting of 300 packages of 80 ounds each, was shipped from Yoko- mma on June 10 by steamship, reached ?acoma, Wash., July 6, whore it was de- ayed for inspection by government of- iclals, and arrived at Waterloo July 4, just 44 days from the other side of he globe. Theconsignmentwasbilled hrough from Yokohama to Waterloo, owa, and the freight on the 24,000 rounds was $573.19. Rev v/ Tyrrell, pastor of the M. E. jhurch'at Clarion, 'occupied a seat in he judges' stand and officiated as time Deeper in a race between two local trot- ors. The spectators questioned his decision. Rov. Tyrrell promptly pulled iff his coat and announced that he could vhip any man who called him a liar. Vlutual friends prevented tho affair rom going any further, but it has created much comment. Rev. Tyrrell is a well known lover of fast horses, but so long as he took no part in racing his congregation did not object. He has now resigned his ministry and will go ,nto the fast horse business. Miss Elsie Lincoln of Fort Dodge, who studied music in Paris last winter, is spending the summer months in London. She writes home that she heara a great deal about the American tariff. It is perfectly surprising, she says, how everybody talks about tho matter, it entering much more into general conversation there than on this side of the Atlantic. The Times says Miss Lincoln proposes to be ready to talk with her English cousins and has written home for documents to help her to sus^ tain the American position of protection to home industry. Judge Couch of Waterloo is out in a letter declining to permit the consideration of his name in the democratic congressional convention. Col. Henderson beat him two years ago by a majority of 08. Boies carried the district last fall by over 7,000 majority, but this was on state issues. Couch's declination evidences what he thinks of democratic prospects in the district this fall, while Senator Shields of Dubuque, who has been mentioned frequently, intimates that he would not accept the nomination. Recommends It Cheerfully, I have no hesitancy in recommending Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera, aud Diar- rhoea Remedy to the public, as I do to my friends and patrons, I used It myself after other well-known remedies had failed, and it cured me in a few minutes. I recom- ' mend it candidly and cheerfully upon its merits, not from a financial standpoint, because I havo others in stock ou which I make a iarger profit, but because Chamberlain's is the best remedy I know of for bowel complaints. There is no doubt about it; it does the work.—James Forgy, druggist, McVeytowu, Pa. Sold by all druggists.
