Clarke & Co. in the abstract business, and make a specialty of furnishing reliable Abstracts of Title Col. Clarke, In speaking of the work of Iowa's tax commissioners, says: "Really, my young friend, there is but little that can be said of our commission. As you know it was authorized by the Twenty-fourth general assembly and the members are C. E. Whiting of Whiting, chairman; August Post of Moulton, secretary; Alfred N. Poyneer of Montour, and yours truly. The law which gave the commission birth confines its duties to recommendation only. We are to deliberate upon the revenue laws of the state and report to the next general assembly recommending what changes may seem to us best. Wo have no power to change, wo can only suggest. So far as our work is concerned wo have sent for the different revenues of the country and will commence our labors by posting up on them thoroughly. When that is done we will bo in shape to open discussion. That is nil there is to bo said about the commission at tho present time, but we doubtless will have something for tho papers when we once get rightly at work." Saturday afternoon a lady taking a Turkish bath under tho Savery house, at Des Moines, stepped from tho hot room under a cold shower both. Tho shock produced partial paralysis and intense pains in tho spine. She wa.s removed on a stretcher to the office of a physician, where she sufficiently recovered to be taken home. Saturday closed tho series of races given by the Mason City Driving park. The continued rainy weather proved disastrous for tho management. The receipts were light, and out of tho 187 horses entered not to exceed thirty went out. _____ Tho railroad commissioners were at Muscatine Friday investigating a complaint of lack of cars to carry water melons to market. The complaint assumed importance from the fact that melons are perishable property, and if not moved promptly when picked are worthless, entailing serious loss not only to the producer but upon the railroad companies as well. Recently the Rock Island company had an order for eighty cars and was able to furnish but forty-eight. This will give a faint idea of the magnitude of the Muscatine melon crop, when it is realized that this order only covered the demand for one day. An enormous amount of stomach ache is comprehended in this little item of eighty car loads of melons. Lon Hardin says a man living near Dubuque met with a peculiar accident the other day. He was just in the act of sitting down to milk a cow when the cow slipped and fell on him, breaking both of his legs. This presents another strong argument in favor of women doing the milking. Senator Allison has gone east and will deliver three speeches in Maine and the same number in Connecticut within the next ten days. He will probably put in most of the campaign in the oast. ________ Barnum's circus at Des Moines had 15,000 spectators in the afternoon and 14,000 in the evening last week. graduate course at Johns Hopkins, was fellow there several years, instructor in old English for three years, and received from that school the degree of doctor of philosophy. He is a matt of learning and ability, and while he has made a specialty of the English Ian* guago and its literature, he Is a fine scholar in the Scandinavian ' and German. Indeed he was recommended by Dr. Wood of Johns Hopkins for the position here of instructor in German, which recommendation was received after that position was filled. He is widely and favorably known among 1 his own nationality all over tho country as an educator and Americanizer of his people. Ho is assistant to Edward Everett Halo Jr., who holds tho chali.' of English. _______ Cummins and Witmcr will hold joint debates at Fairfield, Muscatino, Independence, Mason City, Marshalltown, Oskaloosa, Dos Moinos, Creston, Council Bluffs, Boono, and Sioux City. Miss Annie F. Johnson, who started from Columbus, Ohio, to rido to San Francisco on a safety bicycle about ten days ago, was run down and her wheel wrecked by a farmer in a wagon on tho road between Montroso and Burlington. Tho farmer refused to give any road, and when Miss Johnson attempted to turn out her wheel caught in tho ruts at one side, throwing her oft'. The farmer then deliberately drove over the wheel and left Miss Johnson to drag it to tho next town. Miss Johnson will sue tho fellow under the state laws, and will in tho meantime, as soon as she can get a now wheel, continue her westward journey. Mr. Halford, private secretary to tho president, has sent to the Iowa historical collection some fine specimens of the handwritings of President and Mrs. Harrison. Hon. Jno. F. Duncombe of Fort Dodge contributes to tho collection tho letter of July 20, written to him by ex-President Cleveland in relation to the case of the Des Moines river land settlers, and Mrs. Senator Parrott of Waterloo has added to the collection a beautiful specimen of agatized wood from tho Bear river country in the Rocky mountains. Stone and Willard, candidates for attorney general, will debate at Keokuk, Manchester, Charles City, Anamosa, Newton, Indianola, Charitou, Harlan, Algona, and Spencer. The trick of Algona's forger, Dickson, was worked at Sheldon a week ago on the landlord of the Arlington. A traveling man, who had registered as Henry KaulTman, had an $80 check payable to his order and signed by his house, Patch, Martin & Co., of Omaha. For the purpose of identification Crocker endorsed the check. Kauffman skipped and the check came back protested, with the statement that no such firm exists in Omaha. No description of the sharper is given, except that he is about 25 years old and wears a light mustache. Iowa is a healthy state for governors. All are living who have been at the head of the state government since 1860. There are nine of them, Kirkwood, Stone, Merill, Carpenter, Newbold, Gear, Sherman, Lurrabee, and Boies. Abstracts.

Budd says that at the state fairs during the past four years fine specimens have been shown of a grand sweet apple which matures as early or earlier than Yellow Transparent, It promises to be valuable over nearly the whole northwest. Mr. J. B. Mitchell of Cresco, in northern Iowa, who has a very trying position, reports it much hardier in tree than the Duchess. R. P. Speer of Cedar Falls says the tree is perfect in wood, leaf, and habits of bearing, and that it is the best early sweet apple he has ever tested. James Stanton of Des Moines repeats Mr. Spoors' statement, including praise of its beauty and quality, A full column of the most favorable reports could be given covering an immense area of our prairie country. We need a fine, very early sweet apple, and this one should be propagated. The variety referred to is Early Sweet (No. 167). The races on Williams' course, where Nancy Hanks made her famous record of 2:05}, have closed. The season was not such a success as was anticipated. Some doubt is expressed on Williams coming out more than even on the meet. The failure of the people to attend in satisfactory and paying numbers is the cause. The next butter and cheese national convention will bo held in Dubuque in February. _______ McFarland and McConlogue, the candidates for secretary of state, will hold joint debates at Keosauo.ua, Maquoketa, Eagle Grove, Elkader, Tipton, Bloomfield, Winterset, Clarinda, Ida Grove, Guthrie Center, and Manson.
