M ONEY TO LOAN- ON RAILROAD LANDS. Persons wanting to borrow money on rail road lands will do well to call at the Koasut County Bunk an4 bring their contracts. HE NEWS OF THE WEEK, About twenty-five northwestern Iowa rms engaged in shipping grain and attle, at a meeting held in Sioux City ast week, decided to institute suits at nee against the Chicago & Northwost- rn railroad to recover money paid as iseriminating rates during a scries of ears. The federal courts have discov- red that they can recover the differ- nco between what they paid aud the owost rate for the same haul. In thou- ands of cases the rebate was as much a $40 per car. It is merely a question f legal evidence. Shippers on the hicago & Northwestern pooled six lonths ago and employed Judge Nourso f Des Moines. The cases are now eady for court, and the meeting that ight ordered a vigorous prosecution, 'lie shippers on all the other lines in owa are preparing to file suits to re- over rebates. It will cost the compa- ies over $1,000,000. Samuel .T. Kirk wood, it is said, ispro- aring a book which will be in the form f political reminiscences. Charley Corkory, formerly of Du- uquo, is defendant in n novel land case i which testimony was taken at Lears this week. .T. N. Gain has filed contest against Mr. Corkory's timber laim, a quarter section, which the 1 later took up eight years ago. This land s within four miles of the end of the ioux City cable lino and in the line of xtension. The contestant claims that lie trees have not been properly culti- ated and that they have not boon ven replanted when destroyed, and hould the contest bo sustained this ovornment land, within four miles of mvod streets, will bo subject to tree laim, pre-emption or homestead entry. George Christ of Dos Moines is a can- ttlate for United States senator from Arizona when that territory shall bo- omc a state. The Hampton Recorder describes vhat Mason City has done to secure a nilo track. A large force of men were iusy at work and the grading was noar- y completed. The ti-ack is elliptical in hnpo, 70 feet wide on the turns and .ouiestrotch, and GO feet wide on the mckstretch. It is built on low, marshy ground and will doubtless be fast. A .ouble-deeked amphitheatre, 150 foot ong will be built, and over 160 boxed tails, all to bo completed in time for he initial meeting that takes place the Irst week in August, and at which >9,000 will be distributed in purses for rotting and pacing. The Mason City Purf club is composed of live business men, and we predict that their August neeting will be a "hummer." The democratic state convention has decided to open their campaign about Sept. 1. The Creston Blue Grass palace opens Aug. 20 and closes Aug. 29. Hon. L. F. ivingston, president of the farmers' alliance of Georgia, and Ignatius Donnelly speak Aug. 21; Hon. W. C. ?. Breckenridge of Kentucky speaks Aug. 22; Rev. Lyman Abbott of New York speaks Aug. 23; Aug. 25 is educa- ional day; and special programmes are arranged of equal interest for all days. On Monday, Aug. 24, the mile running race for a purse of $1,000 is held, probably the best running race to bo given .n the state. A new normal school is being organized at Creston. igert, connected with the Prairie Queen mills as bookkeeper and head niller, are the Sheldon parties active n the deal. The capacity of the mill vill be 150 barrels per day and it is to >e completed October 1. The contract or the building has been closed. Allerton hns reduced his record to 2:13 and will reduce that this season. The family of General Tuttlo has do- posited with Mr. Charles Aldrich in the state library the sword which he carried over the breastworks of Port Donelson in the famous charge on February 15, 1802, at the head of the Second Iowa infantry, of which ho was then colonel. It will be remembered that General Halleck said of that charge: "The second Iowa infantry proved themselves the bravest of the brave. They had the honor of leading the column which entered Fort Donolson,' The sword given to the Aldrich collection General Tuttlo carried at that time until it was stricken from his hand by a bullet. Beside the sword four commissions to the general were deposited with Mr. Aldrich, and an order from General Grant endorsed by General Logan. The addition of the collection is exceedingly valuable. Hon. J. Y. Stone, attorney general, Capt. J. W. Luke, railway commissioner, as well as Supreme Judges Robinson, Granger, Given and Rothrock wore all soldiers. So was Gilbert B. Pray, clerk of supreme court. So would have been Judge Weaver, but for an accident thu' crippled him in childhood. "•—•"•"""•• # Sheldon has been making rapic strides forward in enterprises this year The latest assurred thing is a four story mill to cost over $15,000. The active men in the deal are a;W*Sheldon people but the financial backing comes from New York. E. A. Knight, a moneyed Jnmes F. Norton and Henry Col. Win. H. Merrltt of Des Moinca, ormorlyof Dtibuquo, died at Cedar Rap- ds Thursday. Ho was the democratic and Ida to for governor In 1804 and post- nastcr of Dos Moinos under Cleveland, lo served through the war and was at me time colonel on McClollan's staff. lo was 71 years old. A Now York special says: Senator Vllison's recent visit to the president 1 Capo May was not for social purposes, lo went to press the appointment of udgo Shims of his state for circuit udgo of the Eighth district. After ho appointment of the land court, and in Iowa man was named for chief jus- ice, it looks as though the Iowa man ,ould not bo made circuit judge. Sena- or Allison has determined to leave lothlng undone to secure Shiran' ap- )ointment. and his visit to the prosi- ient at this time was for this purpose. Fans operated by electricity arc bong put in the passenger cars on the ast trains on the Chicago, Milwaukee St. Paul road between Chicago, Mil- vaukeo, and St. Paul and Minneapolis, ind between Chicago, Omahaatid Sioux Jlty. The funs are placed at either nid of the car, and by their use it is jhiimed the temperature of a car can 30 reduced ovor 20 degrees. Fred Lehman in his sketch of Gov. 3oies in Belford's Magazine says: His uibits have always boon simple, almost asceticism. Liquor or tobacco ho las never used in any form. Today at 4 years of ago, with white hair, his ace is ruddy with a glow of perfect loalth, and ho is as capable of work as nost men are at 50. Ho opposed pro- libltion as unjust in its destruction of n-oportioB, built up with the express sanction and encouragement of law. Ho opposed it as unwise because destruct- ve of that individual liberty and individual responsibility through which ihe Anglo Saxon character has attained ts sturdy development. So believing, 10 took his stand and braved the con- lUinoly that- falls to the lot of every man who breaks with old associates. Sunol has trotted a quarter of a milo at a 1:58 gait, much the fastest known. A big horse sale occurred at Knoxville last week. Mr. Nuttal of Miohi- an bought the trotting stallion Advance for $25,000. Advance is a performer, with a record of 2:24 j, and the sire of Swannock, 2:281, at throe years, besides several other colts in Marion county and elsewhere, ready to onlist at no distant day. A Dubuque dispatch says United States Collector Lothrop of tho Thirt Iowa district has, during tho first hall of this month, issued govorninenl licenses to 1404 retail liquor dealers in northern Iowa, an increase of over 40( as compared with the record a year ago. An increase Is also reported in tho southern portion of the state. A " special" went Hying througl Webster City last week carrying tho eminent divine, T. DoWitt Talraago The reverend doctor was billed for u lecture at Storm Lake. Missing his train at Chicago, on reaching Dubuque ho chartered a coach at an expense o $300, reaching Storm Lake in time to fill tho engagement. The Rolfo people have joined tho Des Moines Valley Trotting association am" are now advertising purses for races to come off on August 4 and 5. John Clements, James Clements anc Frederick Rollins of Calhoun count; have secured letters patent on a corr husking machine, and will have oni built during tho summer for field trial this fall. Perspective views of thi machine show it to be somewhat large: than a self binding reaper and tho me chanism quite as complicated, and ye it looks as if it would do the work 1 will be built for. How well or how sat isfuctory or how much work it will d remains to be demonstrated by practi cal application. For the Detroit Encampment.

THE DES MOINES BIVEB. low Our Hirer AVns Nniiipcl— An interesting: Sketch From S. M. Clnrke's Ileport of His Trip to Fort Dodge. We started out of Keokuk on the lock Island the other evening to go to 'ort Dmlgo. The Upper Des Moines Editorial association met there and wo ad been naked to speak 40 minutes to ;s members. We think tho grouping f that Upper Dos Moines with this ower Dos Moines drew us as much as nything. Do you recall that other .melons early summer of 1073 when the rhtto man made his first visit to tho ower Des MolnosV Bancroft is stately nough but ho Is not graphic, ho never a picture nor can paint one, yet ho s eloquent, too, In an unmoving way: ' About 00 leagues below the mouth of :io Wisconsin tho western bank of tho lisslflsippi bore on Its sands tho trail of ion; u little footpath was discerned jading into a beautiful prairie; and, Mivlng their canoes, .Toilet and Mar- uotte resolved alone to bravo a moot- ig with tho savages. After walking ix miles thoy behold a village on tho anks of a river and two others on a. iopo at a distance of a mile and a half rom tho first. Tho river was tho lou-ln-gou-e-na or Moingonu, of which •o have corrupted tho name into Des loinos. Mnrquotte and .Toilet wore lie first white men who trod tho soil f Iowa." Colton's map of Iowa, if you can find ne, calls the Dos Moinos above tho resent state cnnittit tho Molngona. n tho map that Marquotte made and ont to Franco ho wrote tho name loingwona. You will find Murquotto's wn account in John G. Shea's " Dlscov- ry and Exploration of the Mississippi," nd you will find the simple and some- vhat antiquated French ot tho gentle nd saintly priest more simply natural hat tho stately phrases of Bancroft. Vhon tho tide of settlement began to novo into tho Throe Rivers county, tut ho valley above Des Moines was called, t drew from southern Iowa some of tho larliost friends of our childhood. We vent to look after them tho other day. Fort Dodgo Is the Kookuk of tho ippor Des Molries. Tho river put» noro picturosqueness and beauty just hero than into whole decades and icorcs of miles elsewhere. A gem of a orest everywhere, stately and rounded illls, pretty picturosof valleys, tho river vinding about sylvan shades and tree iovorod blulTs and sotting tho lino little jily In a frame of beauty on all sides. ["ho town is a seat of culture. Emerson laid tho pianoeamo into a western homo no quickly you would think they found t under a slump. But it is cluiraoter- stio of Fort Dodge that there is a conservatory of music there, in Boston ashion, with 40 or more pupils. And one of the ways tho ladies of Ft. Dodgo entertained their editorial visitors was to open an art, hall and show a largo gallery of paintings, crayons, watercolors, hand-painted china, and many creations of local taste and talents. TALMAQE ON THE WEST. At Dubuqiio ire (ilvi'H Ills ImprcH- ol lowu ami tho (front JVIls- Vnlloy. Rev. DoWitt Tulmugo passed through 3ubuquo on his return from Spirit , and expressed his opinion there of what ho had seen. He said: "I Mnlc it is the greatest and grandest mrt of our grand country. No man with an ounce of brain can travel ovo/ its broad prairies and fertile fields, can view its magnificent cities, its varied scenery, its ovoryting, I may say, that 'oos to make it great, without coming to the conclusion that when God in his infinite wisdom made this earth he declared that that part of it which wo iall tho west in this nation should bo rreut and grand, and bo peopled with a bravo, hospitable and free people. It inspires mo to lofty thoughts when I view your magnificent blulTs, washed by tho groat Mississippi, your fine scenery, and your happy people. Down In tho east wo are cramped for room; wo have sterile hillsides, with here and there a little garden spot in tho valley; out hero you have prairie seas which roll on and on toward tho sotting sun until they seem to come together in a fond embrace with tho western horizon broken occasionally by snow-capped mountain ranges whose peaks go up heavenward and serve as steeples on tho groat church of nature. The eastern people ought to come out hero and take advantage of the opportunity afforded to turn around and breathe. God bless tho west. It makes me more patriotic every time I come to the west — this land of milk and honey — u land finer and with greater possibilities than any other tho sun shines upon. As I passed through tho great prairie state of Illinois yesterday I saw from my car window the busy husbandman gathering in his golden grain, happy and contented. He was not a serf; no, ho was u free American citizen — a title greater than that of emperor; he had ' tickled the soil and it laughed with the harvest' — bountiful enough to feed not only the people of his own but other lands. Bishop Hebor sang that ' Westward the star of empire takes its way,' and he was right; and I have not the least doubt that it will not be many years before the seat of government in this republic will be in the beautiful valley of tho great Mississippi—that artery of commerce whose source is among the pines of northern Minnesota and whose mouth is in the sunny land of the cypress and magnolia." A Chance to Figure. A clerk counted a basket of eggs. He took two out at a time and one remained; he took out four at a time and one remained; he took out five at a timo and one remained; but when he took out seven at a time none remained. How many eggs were in the basket? MAQHINE OILS at» J. W, Lard, Q»stor, Golden, and VfeJacuil
