McClintock, wife of a farmer residing near Lyons went to ;he field to see a new binder work. On icr return when passing the barn she heard a faint call of " Mamma come iclp me down!" but could see nobody. The, call was repeated when what was lor horror to see ha little son Douglas scarce three years old, peering down rom the platform of a windmill 41 feet above her head. Nothing daunted the jrave mother called softly to him to lold on tight, tvont up and brought him down. It is no moan task for a man to climb a swaying structure like that, ind that a woman could accomplish the eat with a heavy burden in her arms and encumbered by her skirts seems ittle short of a miracle. It seems indeed a marvel that the little one could climb so high on a ladder or that'his mother should be able to rescue him un- larmed. Lawyers Argo of Sioux City and Erwin of St. Paul have arrived at Homestead to defend the laborers charged ivith murdering the Pinkertons. Be- ond the statement that the association md accepted their proffer and that worklngmen at their homes would bear their expenses, the gentlemen would not talk for publication. Thos. L.

THE WEEK'S IOWA NEWS, C. D. Fullen, chairman of the democratic central committee, accepted the challenge made by the republican committee for W. W. Witmer, democratic candidate for elector at large, to meet A. B. Cummins, republican candidate 'or the same office. The veteran greenbacker, Dan. lainpbell, has been nominated by the peoples party in the Eleventh, and endorsed by the democrats. The republican and democratic congressional conventions in the Fourth were both held last Wednesday. The 'ormer nominated Thos. Updegraff and the latter Walt. Butler. Updegraff was a member years ago and is one of ;he ablest men that Iowa has ever sent. held by Emery B. Smith, also a mem* her of that company. The weapon was fired by accident while the company stood in double file preparatory to a special drill. St. John was barely a foot from the end of the rifles when the discharge occurred; the ball entering near the base of the brain and passing upward came out just below th* lift eye. Death was instantaneous. By mistake a loaded gun had been left in the racks after target practice, although no one knows who is responsible. The death caused great consternation among the militia, and groat excitement at Des Molnes. J. W. Jarnagin, in charge of the Iowa educational exhibit at the world's fair, has appointed State Superintendent Knoopfler, Henry Sabin, Prof. F. B. Cooper of Des Moines, Prof. O. J. Lay- lawder of Cedar Falls, and Superintendent Heath of Brooklyn a committee to devise a premium list for the educational exhibit to be held at Cedar Rapids during the mooting of the state teachers' association in December. About $300 will be offered in premiums to the school children of Towa both for individual and class work. All competing 1 articles become property of the Iowa Columbian commission and in this way the nucleus of the educational exhibit will bo inaugurated. At Spencer it was deemed necessary and desirable to do away with a mill dam near the end of Main street to improve the drainage of the city. An election was held at which it was voted by a largo majority to bond the city for $4,500 to purchase the mill dam charter and destroy the dam. It binds the mill company to erect this fall a flour mill with 150 barrels per day capacity. Mr. Farquahr of Lo Mars won the state championship at tennis in Dea Moines last week. Fred. White has been renominatedby the democrats in the sixth. He and J. F. Lacy have their fight over again. Fish Commissioner Griggs has gone •jo Quincy, Illinois, to join a distributing agent of the national fish commission, who through the influence of Senator Allison, will deliver to our commissioner five car loads of fish for ;he Iowa lakes. Several car loads have already this season been planted in [owa streams. ' Ackley Hubbard of Spencer has made arrangements to remove to Pasadena, Gal., where he will engage in the banking business. Mr. Hubbard has been a resident of Clay county for more than 20 years, where as county officer, and in a professional and commercial career he has made an enviable record. _______ Judge O. C. Howe has been visiting at Spirit Lake and he was warmly welcomed by a number of pioneers. He was there before the massacre of '57. He returned just after that awful tragedy, finding things as th.o savages left them, and going back to Fort Dodge he joined the company which came to bury the dead. His family was first to arrive after the massacre. He located the town of Spirit Lake, and was the county's first judge under the system then prevailing. He will write some letters of reminiscence for the Beacon. Geo, Bice, a son of Orson Rice of Spirit Lake, is a candidate for judge in Washington. Gen. Jas. B. Weaver kas gone south. He will speak throughout Missouri, Arkansas, Texas, Mississippi, Alabama, the Carolines and Virginia. He will return to Iowa early in October and de vote the remainder of his time in the northwestern states. He is in good health and very sanguine. ' Last Thursday evening Clifton B. St. John was Instantly killed at Company A's armory in Des Moines. The pause of ijefttti} was a shot from a rlfte Bourke Cochran, the celebrated Tammany orator, has placed himself at the service of the national committee, except for one month which he proposes to devote to Iowa. Iowa democrats will flock to hear this great orator whenever and wherever they may have an opportunity. Council Bluffs has a young bicycle rider who bids fair to excel any of the other riders in the west, as last Friday, at Creston, he took the state half mile record. This'is Howard Hattenhauer, and in making his fine time of 1:17 2-5 ho also won a handsome $100 pneumatic racer. The race was made on the identical machine with which A. B. Edmunds at Sioux City a few weeks ago set the pace for the state championship a fraction above this mark. The state fair people aro uniting with the Iowa road association in tailing a mass convention on the fair ground tomorrow. Among the speakers expected are ex-Governor Larrabee, J. F. Duncombe, Col. John Scott, Henry Wallace and Judge Stacey. The subject is the improvement of Iowa roads, Gov. Boies will preside. The Hampton Recorder calls attention to the fact that the new law requires the county auditor to furnish all fhe ballots for the fall election. It should not be forgotten that township officers are to bo elected thyj fall, and that in order to enabla. the auditor to print the tickets, each township should hold a caucus for nominating candidates for the offices to be filled. E. C. Hughes, formerly of Spencer, but now of Seattle, Wash., and who was at one time a prominent attorney before O'Brien county oourts, is now in Alaska participating in the legal fight arising over the seizure of certain vessels in American waters belonging to British subjects, claimed to have been violating the international treaty. Hezekiah Shepherd died at Drakeville at the extreme age of 90 years. Mr. Shepherd for many years was un» able to rest in any other position than sitting in an easy chair, and some time ago got the notion that after death ho wished to be buried in a sitting pos* ture. He had a white oak and walnut chair especially made for him by a cabinet maker and his wishes were carried out in the matter, the peculiar coffin being inaloaed in a high box and lowered into the grave. He was a wealthy and highly respected citizen and had many friends. Outside of his peculiar notion as to being buried in a sitting posture he does not seem to hare differed from the.ordlaary of mankind. Notice to Oontraotora.
