THE NEWS OF THE WEEK, The Register tolls the following story on Sioux City: A remarkable accident occurred Wednesday morning which shows how unsubstantial is the foundation on which Sioux City is built. .Ins. Ross, a boy, was delivering papers in tho early morning, riding a $1,000 horse belonging to his father. On Jackson, near Thirty-third street, where the rain had softened tho ground, tho horse began to sink. Tho boy got off and managed to flounder through tho soft ground to a placo of safety, and then wont homo. When his father ivrrived nothing was visible but a hole in the ground, marking the placo where tho horse had gone out of sight. The first train vote of tho year for governor of Iowa was taken on tho Des Moinos & Northwestern railway Monday, resulting as follows. Wheeler, 40; Boies, 81; independent, 0. Tho ladles voted: Wheeler, 27; Boies, 10. Total vote, Wheeler, 01; Boies, 41. Webster City has a now dally paper, tho Herald. It appears as a six-column folio. Tho editor is W. A. Hutton, who is well fitted to carry forward the enterprise. Tho national holiday celebration at the Iowa hospital for insane at Independence was this year on a more elaborate, unique and successful plan than over before. The main building, cottages and grove, in which tho exorcises were held, were profusely decorated with flags and bunting. Tho pro- gramme opened with a Mardi Gras pro- icssion, ono scene, a caricature of tho hospital physicians in tho act of dressing a patient, being especially good. Fireworks of all kinds were profusely distributed. Throe baloons ascended, and a choice banquet served to tho patients, when thoy did justice to over 23 gallons of ice cream. Tho afternoon concluded with a dance on the green, delightful music being furnished by tho iiospital band and orchestra. There are in Iowa 28,189 pensioners. A lad 12 years old has boon arrested lor causing the wreck near Lansing, [owa, on Saturday last, in which Engineer Todd lost his life. The boy, who is now in custody at La Crosse, Wis., ionfesses that he tied the nut on tho rail. The annual encampment of tho Sixth regiment Iowa National guards will be held at Webster City, opening July 20. Rosencranz park will bo tho site of the encampment. Webster City promises to warmly welcome all those who come. Company F will bo in attendance. •^• • The Register gives an item of interest to the admirers of Father Clarkson. The sickle with which Father Clarkson, who gave the agricultural department of the Register such a distinguished reputation, reaped grain 00 years ago, still hangs over his desk, just as he hung it after ho had exhibited it to some inquiring friends a few days before his fatal illness began. It is a highly prized heirloom that was considered a great improvement over the iron sickle used by Boaz in the days when Ruth and other maidens gleaned after tho reapers. The first modern reaping machine was invented only in the present century, but failed from its intricacies. McCormack's American reaper was invented about 1831 and perfected in 1840 so that it accomplished good work, but from that year there has been a steady improvement until tho modern machine now does all tho work of harvesting but shocking, but the sickle is still an object of admiration to thpse who reaped the golden grain when tho country was young. Over 800 horses are entered at Independence for the great August event. This will bo far the largest meeting of 1891, Ninety thousand dollars is offered in purses and specials. 'The meeting will open Monday, Aug. 24, andcontinue six days, closing Saturday the 29th. Maud S. won every race in which she started. Jay-eyo-see captured all but one in which he took part. Sunol has been beaten but once, and Nelson only twice, The Mason City Turf club will nan up §9,000 in purses for trotting and pacing at their initial meeting, August 4, 5, and 0. Entries close July 27. The death of Mr. Hamlin leaves Hon. Geo, W, Jones of Dubuque the second senior ex-senator of tho United States. The senior ex-senator is Hon. James W. Bradbury of Augusta, Maine, who was Mr. Hamlin's colleague when the latter entered the senate, having taken his seat in that body at the beginning oi that congress, (the thirteenth.) Forty-nine cases of beer, five cases of whisky and eighty bottles of whisky, the property of a Peoria brewery, were destroyed at Waterloo last week by the sheriff. The brewing company opevat ed an original package house there last summer and the goods destroyed were seized last October under tho provision of tho original package act passed by tho last congress. Tho company endeavored to compromise by pay- in the costs and shipping the beverage from tho state, but no agreement could bo made. A brother to Roy Wllkes, 2:08i pacing, was foaled at Waterloo, Iowa, not long ago. _______ A $250,000 piano company has boon organized at Des Moines, and Iowa will soon bo boating tho world on tho manufacture of pianos as well as tho raising of corn and oats. fe. & 'A'-t .«»'»«/! . rt in.

Corn fodder, corn ensilage, sor- Efhum cane onsllago, and mangels wore fed for 00 days to eight cows. Tho milk was sampled at every milking, and tho composite samples analyzed every five days. Fats per cent, and total solids, and their variations arc shown in tables. Tho amount of fats and solids are also given per each five days during tho feeding period. Tho effect of tho four diJToront fodder rations are tabulated and results indicated from tho butter fats and total solids produced by each ration, calculated from a dry matter basis. Corn fodder shows slightly bettor results than corn ensilage, which exceeds sorghum cane ensilage. Tho mangel ration Is super!- :>r to any of tho others. Clover hay was fed with all those rations, a double unount being given with tho roots. Tho tables show milk testing in, und tho ell'oct of tho diiTeront foods on quantity and quality. Fred. Lehman has written up tho life iind career of Horace Boles for Belford's magazine. Tho Register says that crop reports continue bad from nearly all foreign lountries. Russia will have a shortage instead of a surplus and is now buying supplies in America. Franco has loss than half a crop, Germany is short 35 to 40 per cent, and all other European countries have less than average crops. Drouth is running everything in India, and swarms of locusts are destroying the little vegetation loft in that country, Bengal and other torrid zone nations. There will bo an active demand for all of the surplus grain of tho United States, and at higher values than have prevailed at any time during tho past 19 years. Thos. MoDormott left at tho Webster City Freeman office last week a stalk of corn raised on his placo, In tho south part of tho city, that measured seven and one-half feet in height. Tho seed was planted just 50 days ago, showing that tho corn has grown an average of nearly ono and throe-quarter inches daily since the seed was put in the ground. This is tho tallest specimen of corn reported this year. Tho Iowa driving park will open its new mile track at Knoxvillo, Aug. 11, with the greatest pacing race to bo given in the west this year—a 2:20 class for $2,000, Tho races, continue four days. Pacing and trotting—stakes and purses $1,000 to $2,000, nothing loss. Ladies free first day. Excursion rates on'all roads. _______ Tho Iowa soldiers' monument commission mot at Iowa City and decided in favor of a monument rather than a memorial hall. The legislature will bo asked to make an appropriation for tho purpose. Hiram Clement Wheeler owns ton sections of land in Sac county, or 6,400 acres. Ho farms all his land, employing summer and winter GO mon. Ho usually keeps 1,000 head of cattle, 8,000 head of hogs, and 150 horses and mules. He is the largest producer of timothy in tho United States. Last year ho raised 10,000 bushels of pop corn, which brought him about $30 per acre. Ho pays personal attention to his farm and never fails to make it profitable. An interesting situation is reported at Spirit Lake. An injunction so- cured against tho Hotel Orleans for selling beer. The landlord telegraphed President Ives what to do, and the answer was to sell beer and if any further trouble was made to close tho house at once, This situation brought tho business men of the town to the front and a large delegation visited the landlord and told him to run the hotel to suit himself and they would stand by him. The closing of the Orleans would practically kill Spirit Lake's summer business. ._»_«__, The Capital says that Hon. Hiram Price, one of the pioneers of Iowa, one of the grandest, ablest men--a leader in organizing the republican party, a champion in the cause of temperance- is, we regret to learn, lying seriously ill at Saratoga, N. y, Mr. Price came to Jovya, in J844, and for 2o years was ono of our foremost business mon. He was ono of tho founders of our state banking system, before the days of tho war and greenbacks. He served many terms in congress, and finally ns cotn- nissioner of Indian affairs. His life luis boon a long and most useful one, ind wo sincerely hopo It may stilt be [H'olonged for many years to come. He camo on a visit to Davenport in May, but was soon taken violently ill, and remained under tho doctor's caro until the last of June. Judge and Mrs. John Dillon then camo from Now York ind took him to their cottage at Saraa, whoro ho is now slowly mending 1 . Mrs. Dillon is his daughter, and Judge ;3illon was onco chief justice of Iowa 'in tho oldon time long ago." Superintendent John Givin of tho Rock Island railroad believes that tho iiiUlu, hogs, horses, grain, hay, and ithor products of Iowa soil in sight or •oasonably assured, will bring at the" prevailing and probable future prices' nueh tho largest amount of money tho state has over recolved for its yearly product, and that tho farmers will bo noro prosperous this year than ovorbo- 'oro. Tho management of tho fifth annual jorn palace festival, which opens at Sioux City, October 1, and closes Oct. 7, him secured the Mexican band to five daily concerts in tho palace during Lho coming festival. This band is ono )f tho most noted in tho world, and will )0 a great drawing curd. GRASSHOPPERS IN THE WEST. I'hoy Arc Doing Damntfo i u i) tt u o - tii and KniiHua— Tlio Old 'J'lmo mi (I Well Kumuitiboi'ctl Locust. CHHYKNNK, Wyo., July 7.— Portions if Cheyenne county are being ovorun jy grasshop|)ers. A strip of country 10 miles wide and extending in u southerly llroctlon is completely hid from view by tho insects. They' settle on tho .'all road tracks and impede trains. As ^ot they have done no damage to crops or grass, as thoy are too young. By tho . time thoy are able to fly thoy will bo well out of Wyoming into Kansas. Another report is that tho Rock Island passenger train wus slopped last week near Lyman Junction, Col., by tho jrasshoppors. Tho Insects covered tho ,he track for live miles and two engines wore necessary to pull tho train through' them. Tho engines wore two hours otting tho train over the Ilvo miles of i'iiclc. Tho grasshoppers have only boon hero two weeks. It Is feared they will mature enough to rise before the corn is hard enough, and bo blown Into Kansas by tho winds. Tho Spcarflsh, S. D., Mall has tho following report: A dispatch from Fargo is to tho effect that locusts wore liatohlng out in groat quantities in Grand Forks county, which, on examination by Prof. Waldron, wore pronounced genuine Rocky Mountain locusts. These locusts visited portions of Manitoba last season and it is supposed a few must have drifted across the lino into North Dakota and dopes'-' itcd eggs. A thorough examination was made by state ollloials and hoppers wore located in two places, near Orr. in Grand Forks county, and near tho lino of tho Great Northern In Walsh county. Prof. Waldon reports that the hoppers are as yet wingless and practically harmless for tho timo being, and if they can bo destroyed immediately little damage can bo done. Ho states that in ono placo thoy cover the ground for over a mile in length, and from one to five rods wido, and from an Inch to a foot in depth. A deep ditch has been made around there to prevent their escape until they can bo trapped and destroyed. Prof. Walden will superintend the destruction, which will probably bo by trapping and burning. Gov, Burke gave instructions to spare neither money or expense in tho eradication of tho locusts at onco, Tho authorities are confident this can bo done before any damage can bo done to crops, Original Package Memories. Tho Spencer News reports a case of interest: Last Juno, it will bo remembered, J. M. Coonan, who then resided in Spencer, but who has since died, was enjoined from selling intoxicating liquors in bottles, on tho ground that tho case and not tho bottle was the original package. Tho case was tried before Judge Thomas, Judge Carr concurring' with him in tho decision. Public opinion was strongly and justly in favor of suppressing the original package business, and it is safe to say that none interested in tho cause of temperance or making any pretontions as temperance people approve of this obnoxious method of selling intoxicants. Tho defendant appealed the case, The supreme court of the state recently rendered a decision- reversing that of the lower court and holding that the bottle and not the case was and is the original package. Mr. Parker will petition for a re-hearing of tho cause, because of his inability on account of ill- health to be present at the timo the supreme court investigated the case, and for tho further reason that a written stipulation has been entered into by counsel for the respective parties, continuing the case. This stipulation was sent to" the attorney general to be filed, but for some reason it was not filed, and the court took the case and determined it without any argument from appellee, Another Veteran Hwworded. Bancroft Register: Wm. Winter received notice last week of the allowance of his application for a pension. He gets $12 per month from last July, and his, friends are glad to see another 0| the falthf \A rewarded {or his wprfe tbe '60-8,
