Th first heat was dead between them. In the second Allerton pushed severa lengths ahead at the start and kept his lead to the finish, but Lebasco came in with his nose on Allerton's flank. The official time was 2:13i, which makes the fastest heat trotted in any race on any track in the United States by any stallion this year. In the third heat misfortune befell Allerton. He was well ahead at the turn home, and Lebasco was trying hard to catch him. Entering the stretch Allerton stuck himself or stepped awry, probably the former, and came in dead lame with his right hind leg in a condition to probably shelve him for the balance of the season. The tendons in the log were so badly bruised that after the horse was cooled and in his quarters he did not want to carry any weight on it. Williams, ordinarily a very calm and reserved man, was beside himself. The accident means a loss of $100,000 to him this season. Allerton has been badly hurt before in much the same way, and Williams brought him through, but experienced liorsemen have no expectation of seeing him on the turf again this sen- son. ^^^^^ Sanborn is to have big races Sept. 19-21. _> The title to a trade dohllar is a mat- ;er of litigation in the Plymouth coun- ;y courts. At the last ball game last week C8ttrell was given a trade dollar n .n change and as it was of peculiar jonstruction he was led to exanine it closely, and in touching a little spring .n the side the top of the dollar came up in the shape of a lid and revealed a portrait of a lady on the inside. C. W. ~i. Trottnow has been carrying a trade dollar of peculiar shape as a pocket- jiecefor some months and by mistake mssed it at the same ball game. He did not know of the mechanical arrangement in the dollar, however, and Cot- ;rell thinks it improbable that it 'be- ongs to him and will not give it up. tfr. Trottnow has commenced suit to recover the dollar. It is a peculiar >iece and the mechanical contrivance so neatly arranged that without a close npection the lid would not be discovered. Muscatine now has two pearl button actories, and the News-Tribune, the lemocratic paper of that city, says that one of them " is employing some 20 people," and it is informed that the new hop "will have a capacity for 300 hands?" Dennison is building a $14,485 normal college. The Electrical Engineer says the first carriage propelled by electricity milt in the west is the invention of Wm. Morrison of Des Moines, Iowa. It s intended for operation on ordinary uityand country roads, and will carry 2 people comfortably, although the inventor says that it could easily be arranged for double that number. The >ower is furnished by 24 storage battery sells placed beneath the seats. A picture of the old capitol building n 1841 at Iowa City has been donated he Aldrich collection on the hill by D rof. Parvin. The structure represent)d is a low, long two-story wooden affair, ?he lower floor is now used for a har- less shop. But the upper story is un- hanged. A fao simile of the autographic map of the Conception (or Miss- ssippi) river, drawn by Father Mar- uette at the time of his voyage, is an nteresting feature now exhibited in he collection. It includes that por- ion of the Mississippi from the Red "iver down to the Missouri (the Pekib- anba.) The map is a curiosity and a arity. A map showing the lands of he emigrant Indians, following their uccessive migrations, is also interest- ng. It is the gift of Senator G. W. ones. ^^^^^ Dairy Commissioner Tupper is mak- ng a tour of the state investigating he Duality of the milk supply. Under he new law the milk must have at least hree per cent, of butter substance or he sale by milkmen as the genuine article is prohibited. The state agricultural college cream- iry a Ames turns out 600 pounds of but- er every day, which is sold in New York at fancy prices. President Wilkins and Secretary Stuckey have secured a tent 120 feet ong by 80 feet wide, and in company with Secretary Sohaffer secured a plendid location on the state fair grounds on the east hill, above the Tenth Iowa cottage, where a huge ,amp fire of old soldiers will be held on Tuesday and Wednesday, Aug. 30-31, he daye set apart for soldiers. The owa Union ex-Prisoners of War asso- iation, feeling that there ought; to be a generally organized plan fora camp fire, have the matte? in charge, and Tuesday will be given up to the annual reunion of that association. The evening will be devoted to a general camp fire, and Wednesday and Wednesday night the exercises will consist of a solid programme of exercises, such as will bo of peculiar interest to old soldiers. Col. J. J. Steadman, depart* ment commander; Rev. Jesse Cole, de* partment chaplain; Rev. Frank Evans, and Major H. G. Curtis of Atlantic will speak, while Col. Dave Henderson of Dubuque is expected to be present, with a large number of other noted campfire orators, to assist in keeping up the enthusiasm among the boys. There will also bo various other exercises and attractions. The tent will seat 1,000 persons. Goo. W. Argo of Sioux City will go to Homestead to help in the defense of the workmen accused of murder. Ho lias just returned from St. Paul, where lie was in consultation with attorney W. W. Irwin considering tho urgent appeals of the labor organizations of tho west to go to Homestead. Ho finally determined to accept tho offers made. Their expenses are paid by tho orders, tho lawyers donating their services. Tho "great time" at Spirit Lake this summer is this week and closes on tho 14th, which is the musical festival under direction of Prof. C. E. Leslie, in which there will boa chorus of 300 voices. Among tho attractions are the Schumann lady quartette, Master Harry Diamond, tho great boy violin- '.st, Miss Lenore K. Murray, elocutionist, Miss Cochran, the Boston soprano soloist, Miss Laura McManis of Indianapolis, the professional whistler, and other attractions are being secured. Grand concerts will be given on tomor- •ow, Friday, and Saturday evenings. Musically inclined people of this sec;ion should take this in, the greatest musical event of tho year. Bishop Perry, of the diocese of Iowa, when he returns from an outing which he is now taking, will appear in the costliest and most beautiful Episcopal •obes ever seen in Iowa. They will be the gift of the women of the diocese and will be first worn on the occasion of iho sixteenth anniversary of the bishop's consecration, Sept. 10. Mrs. James Wilson, wife of " Tama Jim" Wilson, committed .suicide last Wednesday by drowning herself in Squaw creek, at the college farm. ;She eft home at o'clock a. m. for a valk and the body was found in the jreek about a mile from the main build- ng between 3 and 4 p. m. Her health was assigned as the cause. There is no doubt but what it was suicide, she was ound in but .three feet of water. Another report is: Mrs. Jas, Wilson, wife Prof. Wilson, committed suicide Wednesday by drowning. She left lome in the morning saying that she ivas going to settle some store bills in Ames. In the afternoon her bonnet and shawl were found on the bridge across Squaw creek, north of the col- v ege and taken to Mr. Wilson's office, ivhere they were Immediately recog- lized. Mr. Wilson and his son preced- id to the creek and brought her home, no writing of any kind has been found, ind continued ill health, is thought to lave been the cause. The Mail and Times of Des Moines is finding considerable fault because the tate fair management has employed heOskaloosa and Emmetsburg bands, and thinks they "might as well employ ho Salvation army at once." Fifty brawney teamsters, Thursday, ransformed the excavation for the \>rt Dodge Grocery company's build- ng on Market street into a fort and leldit successfully all day. Two at- ,empts to get other gangs to work on .he cellar failed and at last reports the men were still in possession against he wishes of the property holders and n spite of all efforts to dispossess them, ?he contractor claimed to be unable to >ay the men without an advance on the >ay for the job, and the owners refused ;o pay anything until the work is com- ileted as provided in the contract. The strikers will not work themselves and refused to permit,, others to do so until they get their pay. United States District Attorney O'Connell, one of the owners of the property, led a party of workmen in an attempt to eject the men, A personal encounter with one of the strikers followed, and Mayor lyatt and his marshal had to be called on to preserve the peace. Friday an njunction Against the strikers was is- med by Judge Weaver at Eldora, and ihe men evacuated. O'Connell and Meservey are owners of'the lots, and will now settle with the men. The ir- •esponsibility of the contractor caused he trouble. Willie Hartwig, aged 13, while rid- ng the lead horse of a five horse team attached to a binder at Corwith, Friday, was thrown to the ground and $ ickle guard entered his side, infliot- ng a painful but not dangerous wound.
