Always In stock at the Upper pesJlQtaesQftw. ^ THE NEWS OF THE WEEK, By a recent decision of the Iowa su prctno court it is hold (Justices Granger and Robinson dissenting) that tho lien for personal properly taxes imposed on real estate by section 805 of tho code is superior to liens of individuals previously acquired on such real estate. How this may affect money loanors on real estate is illustrated by tho Monticello Express: A merchant having stock of goods valued, say at $20,000, desires a loan of $(100 or $800 on a lot or farm worth $1,000. Tho taxes on por- onal property are no lion thereon. Now tho merchant may, just before taxes arc due, becomo insolvent and be compelled to sell his goods to pay his indebtedness. Under the Iowa decision the taxes on tho stock of goods become a lion on tho farm or lot superior to any mort- gagee's interest and the mortgagee might, as a result, bo out several hundred dollars. And one procuring a loan on real estate security may, subsequently, becomo possessed of a large amount of personal property, tho taxes on which mny become a lien on real estate mortgaged. Tho fifth annual corn palace festival will bo hold in Sioux City, Oct. 1 to 17, 180.1, inclusive. A maro belonging to .T. 11. Letts of Poplar Grove farm, near Webster City, .Iroppod a colt last Sunday night that lad a well developed udder as largo as i. man's list. When Mr. Letts llrst saw ho colt ho thought it had been ruptured, but a close examination proved that tho supposed lump was a porfeot udder, with teats from which a natural flow of milk was secured. Tho jolt is as lively as a cricket, and apparently as well and vigorous as tho avor- igo colt of its ago. Mr. Letts, although i horso raiser of many years' experience, declares this is tho llrst lime ho over saw a case of this kind. Judge Hubbard of Cedar Rapids has •efusod $00,000 for his horso, Aegan. Tho Des Moinos Capital says Gov. Gear, when ho entered politics, was vorth $100,000; when tho governor vent out ho was worth nothing except ris homestead, and there is still a largo nortgago on that, which tho ox-governor will undoubtedly proceed to ro- novc by business energy, for ho has never failed to make his way when out )f office and attending to business. All vho have soon tho governor lately say hat ho does not look a day older than 10 did 15 years ago, and so far as those of his friends in Iowa are concerned •hoy hope ho may continue to look 'outhful for a quarter of a century noro, and that his example may bo allowed by many young men who are lisposod to complain because tlioro is no job in sight that suits them. Another honor has como to an Iowa •oung man, in tho form of an honor- .blo appointment. Mr. John D. Jordan if Dos Moinos has just boon appointed jlork of tho appellate court of the United States, just organized at St. Louis. All tho notarial commissions in Iowa xpiro on July 4, 1891. A groat many >f them have not yet sont in their renewals, and will neglect to do so until ho day of expiration, when they will find themselves unable to take ac- cnowledgments, and their business will /hereby bo inconvonionced. Horoto- 'oro Bomo of thorn have forgotten or neglected it for several days after J uly 4, and meantime administered an oath iO some one, which was illegal. The Des Moinos Piano company have ilready laid tho corner-stone and found- ition of thoir business, which continues to grow as tho public find out thoir nannor and methods of treating their Nitrons. A Dos Moines man has invented a aew typo-writing machine. It has two systems of typo and two letters can bo itruck together. A factory will be built in Dos Moines. The machine does much faster work than the present ones. Tho fourth annual convention of tho association of Iowa doaf mutes was lold at Council Bluffs last week. This .ssociation was organized in Des Moines nine years ago by about a dozen deaf mutes. Two years later it came together again in Des Moines. In the mean- Ime its membership had grown to about 50. Now there are more than 150 members. An interesting event last week was ;ho letting loose of a trio of currier pigeons at Mason City. They were shipped there from Milwaukee by express with instructions that the agent ihould let them loose at 7 o'clock Friday morning. This Charley Barber did, from his residence on the corner of Washington and Fourth streets. The >irds were reluctant to leave the dark cage in which they had been shipped, and had to be taken out, and were not ed Ipr a dny or so, This was in accord- with the instructions of the parties in Milwaukee. On being taken out the pigeons made a circle or two around the sky and then started out, like a arrow, duo east. They reached their destination at 4 o'clock the next morning. Tho parties in Milwaukee believe that the birds would have made the (light in less time had they had more rest before starting. An oatmeal company has been organ- i/ed at Mason City and will bo incorporated under the laws of the state with ft capital of $M,000. Tho most modern and approved machinery will bo put in the four story stone mill at Hock Falls. H. Smith, president of the First National bunk, will take a half interest. Win.
