Monday morning Deputy United States Marshal Beach arrived in Es- herville in response to a telegram from 3ity Marshal John Little, and arrested Dell Hubbard, Tom James and a man named Seyberts, charged with passing counterfeit money. They were taken to Fort Dodgo yesterday and a number of witnesses were subpoenaed as were two employees of Williams & Co.'s cir- eus, which showed last Thursday. Many counterfeit dollars are in circulation there and it looks as though the right parties were found. Monday the body of the famous ardifE giant, which has been buried under a livery stable in Independence For 20 years, was exhumed by Bruce L. Baldwin and P. C. Cummins, circus managers, and will be exhibited by them. This was Barnum and Older's giant fraud of 1871. It is announced from Mason City that J. H. McConlogue will accept secretary of state McFarland's challenge to joint debate. . It is now more than probable that a reconciliation will be affected between Rev. W, W. Tyrrell and the M. E. church at Clarion. Some time ago Mr. Tyrrell got into serious trouble while attending a horse race and at once resigned the pastorate of the church. He has for the past two weeks been attending the campmeeting at Belmont and in the presence of 2,000 people in a fervent and most touching address melted the audience with a deep sympathy with his contrition. Every member of the Clarion church is anxious to have have him resume the sacred office of pastor and it is probable that the whole trouble will be happily settled. Mrs. Sarah H. A very, who came to Humboldt in 1859, died Monday. It has been finally settled that ex- Congressman Horr of Michigan, will speak at the blue grass palace fair at Creston today, that Hon. A. E. Stevenson will speak tomorrow, and Gen. Weaver on the 26th, Fred. Johnson, a young man working near Milford, went duck hunting Friday, and, not returning, search was made for him. He was found on the bank of one of the small lakes with his head completely shot off. All evidence goes to show that the shooting was accidental. Mason City gave J. H. McConlogue a great reception Friday in honor of his nomination at Davenport. Personal y Rone of the finest young men in northern Iowa, and will deserve all the honors that can befall him. The State Register says that Chair- an ea trip. in consultation with the members of the national committee. He brings back a great deal of good news for Iowa republicans. Among other things that Gov. McKinley will deliver a number of speeches in Iowa, probably one of them in Des Moines. Hon. J. C. Bur- orws of Michigan, ex-Congressman Horr, Hon. A. C. Rankin, and other orators of national fame will take part in the canvass in this state. Senator Allison, before going to Europe to take parkin the monetary conference, will deliver a number of speeches in the state. Ettie Stewart of Eagle Grove wants $8,000 of Geo. W. Hill of Belle Plaine because the said Hill's son was engaged to marry her, and the father prevented the mariage from taking place by telling his son slanderous stories about her. _^_^__ Mrs. A. P. Wood of Dubuque has sent several fine war-time photographs to "The Aldrich Collection." Among these are the following: Two of Gen. Samuel R. Curtis, one each of Gov, Kirkwood, Gen. N. B. Baker, Gen. Crocker, Gen, John M, Corse, Gen. Belknap and Gen. Edward Hatch. Considering their age these portraits are wonderfully preserved and very fine. The Des Moines racing association and last week's races came to a sudden collapse Friday, The liabilities were over $80,000 already with no assetts in sight but the grounds, and the stockholders thought they were out enough. The attendance at the races was small, and the purses offered were very generous. There were no races Friday or Saturday. Senator Allison will open the political campaign in this state at Waverly, where he will speak Aug. 31 to be followed by an address in Dubuque Sept. 6. It is also understood that he will make one speech in Gear's district previous to his departure for Europe, where he goes as a member of the monetary conference. A young man at Monticello swallowed a silver dollar three months ago while scuffling. Last week he died from hemorrhages. He worried over the matter, knowing that it would probably terminate fatally. There were 250 horses entered in the Des Moines races last week. A man wheeling a barrow with 100 pounds weight accompanied by his wife and a pet dog walked through Carroll recently. He is out on a wager and is to reach Chicago Sept. 15. He started from Seattle in March. . Mr. Geo. H. Yewell, the artist to whom Gov. Boies entrusted the pointing of Gov. Kirkwood'e portrait, has been engaged for the past two months in making studies for the great work. The painting ol the portrait will be done in New York City. He intends this portrait of our venerable "war governor" to be the great work of his life. He will not hurry the work for a single hour, and it is not likely to be finished for some months. Geo. R. Pearsons of Fort Dodge bought Owl lake in Humboldt county for little or nothing, and then put a steam ditcher in and drained it out. Mr. Pearsons is now mowing 300 acres of the finest hay off a tract that on June 1 was entirely under water and accessible only by skiffs. Any portion of what was once Owl lake can now be traversed by wagon, and as soon as the weeds and reeds can be burned off, the entire tract will make the richest hay field in Iowa. The month of July was 'the banner month for the Standard Oil company at Eagle Grove. Manager Archer in- formsthe Gazette that he sold out of the city during the month 838 barrels of oil, find 70 barrels in the city. This beats the record of any corresponding July, and is a fair average of the business. Of course much more oil is consumed in winter, and the average will be larger. A year ago a German living near El- dpra fell in love with a widow of that vicinity, and wanted her to marry him. This she agreed to do provided he deeded her his 40-acre farm, which he promised to do. They came to Eldora, had a deed executed and secured their marriage license. No sooner had the widow the deed in her hands than she refused to wed him. He at once brought suit against her for recovery of his property and sues her for $2,500 for breach of promise. Col. Clorlto's Single Tax. The Cedar Rapids Republican says: Col. Clarke of the new Iowa tax commission was discovered in deep thought yesterday. When asked if he was deep in the problem of tax simplification he answered "yes." When asked how far the commission had gone in the solution of the problem, he blandly remarked that the boys (Whiting, Poy- neer, Post and himself) had had a meeting at which he had offered the only solution of the problem; but whether said solution was regarded as too quick or two burdensome upon the man who offered it, he didn't know; he only knew it wasn't seriously entertained by his colleagues. Of course the next question was, "What's your solution!"' The colonel said he had proposed "a single tax, not upon land as Henry George proposed, but upon dogs!" Inquiry developing the fact that he was the only dog owner on the commission —his associates changed the subject, doubtless in courtepns recognition of the colonel'a self-sacrificing, or rather dog-eapifloing, spirit. Wp have just restocked our 5,10 and 25o,counters, jjj basement! no end to ijhe bargains. Geo. k. Galbraith & Co. A PHENOMENAL SUOOESS. Tlie Great County ITalr of Iowa—A Record of the "Worlt Bono by the Ilardlii County Society. The twenty-second annual county fair of the Hardin County Agricultural society will be held at Eldora, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, Sept. 6, 7, 8, and 9, 1892. The success of the Hardin county fair is phenomenal. The reputation that it has for having the biggest fairs, the best fairs, the liveliest fairs, the most successful county fairs in central Iowa is a fact well merited. Just ask some one who has been there. Why, they have to number the crowds that attend by acres. The fair of 1891 was by far the best in its history, and the indications for 1892 are that it will outstrip them all. There is reason for its wonderful success. The people are thoroughly interested in the society's advancement. It is the people's enterprise, and they have confidence and encouragement for the management, without which it is impossible to make a fair profitable. The men intrusted with the management receive no big salaries, and have no personal ends to serve except to build up a mammoth live-stock show and agricultural fair. The citizens of Hardin and adjoining counties understand this, and the courteous treatment and success of the past guarantees continual favor. The society has never failed to pay its premiums in full in cash. Nearly $25,000 have been paid to exhibitors. The grounds are not to be excelled by any county fair in Iowa. Located on a beautiful table land on the west bank of the Iowa river, within the corporate limits of the rustling city of Eldora, a fine grove of sturdy oaks for shade, an abundance of pure water for man and beast, furnished by direct communication with the city water works, seventy-five shingled box stalls for horses, comfortable stalls, lots, pens and houses for cattle, sheep, swine and poultry, a half-mile race course on which $1,500 was expended last year, an amphithea- tre with a seating capacity of 3,000, new and commodious offices, safe and convenient buildings to display the handiwork of the ladies in, the progress of the schools, the exhibit of vegetables, fruits and cereals of the farmers—are accommodations and advantages possessed by few. Other necessary improvements are being made. A beautiful woodland grove of 20 acres has just been secured for the use of the society, a portion of which will be set apart as a camping ground. It is a pleasant and independent way of spending a week at the fair. Take your tents and camping outfit. This privilege is provided free for those who may desire to go and enjoy the pleasures of camp life. Over $5,000 is offered in liberal premiums in all departments of stock, farm, garden, dairy, workshop, and household. One thousand five hundred in purges apd stakes is bung up in tne speed department, which guaran- tees exciting trials of speed in trotting, pacing, and running. Entries in any department may be made by mail at any time up to and including Sept. 6, on which day all entries absolutely close, except in the speed department, in which entries close Aug. 27. The 400 boys of the Iowa industrial school are annually given one day as a holiday, and attend the fair with their own band in full uniform. They will surely be present. The Burlington, Cedar Rapids & Northern, Chicago & Northwestern, Chicago Great Western, Illinois Central, and Iowa Central railways have granted the courtesy of a one and one- third fare for the round trip for passengers for all points within seventy-five miles of Eldora. Excursion tickets to be sold on Sept. 5 to 9 inclusive, good to return up to and including Sept. 10. Full freight rates going to the fair; returned free on certificate of secretary. There may be larger fairs in Iowa than the Hardin county fair, but none of them will bo stronger in inviting features, more diversified in extent and scope, richer in rare exhibits, purer in entertainment, excite moro attention or curiosity, or be more intensely interesting to visitors. Competition open to all adjoining counties. Any information you may wish in regard to exhibits, a premium list, or entry blanks for the speed department, or anything in relation to the fair, just write to Jno. T. Boylan, Eldora, Iowa, secretary, and he will cheerfully and promptly respond. Specimen Cases. S. H.
