Some weeks ago we noted the proposed changes in the Northwestern icrvice, but nothing has come of the •umors as yet, and at present there is no assurance that anything will come of them. But some change is on foot, and next Sunday a new time card will >e issued. What it will be no one seems to know. Agent Vesper says he ms had no intimation 'further than ,hat it will be issued. The presump- ,ion is that ne,w passenger trains will be put on as at first proposed. That resumption is increased by the follow- ng item in the DCS Moines Capital, which said last week: "The Chicago & Northwestern ofll- ials are figuring on a now time card, which was 'designed to go into efl'ect next Sunday, but owing to unavoidable delays will not bo ready until Sunday, Aug. 2!J. By this change Des Moines and this vicinity will get another out- lot to St. Paul and Minneapolis, the train which now leaves here at 9:30 a. in. being changed to 7 a. m. and going through on fust time by way of Amos and tho northern Iowa division. Returning, the train will reach Des Moines about 8:80 p. in. The train on tho main line, or Iowa division, will also be changed to make closer connections with tho Union Pacific at Omaha." ' Whaf source of information the Capital had is unknown, but everyone along the line will hope that it is correct. ROMANCE AND REALITY. Tho Custom ol Bxiiggerntlon ' that linn Hocome a Grcnt Nulnancu. Tho custom of exaggeration and persistent misrepresentation has become an unpardonable nuisance. ' Of late years the fault with amusement managers has been to dwell upon the borders of romance, and so far forgot their obligations to a confiding public as to utter the most fabulous statements con- corning tlioir establishment. To such an extent has this error been carried that wo often wonder that any confi clenco is maintained. The day of myth ology is past and myths should be looked upon with suspicion. Therefore wo have resolved to root out the evil and by making plain, unvarnished statements as to our attractions and wholesome shows, at least command tho rospoot and consideration of every intelligent reader. Things will be called by tlioir proper name, and only Hucb features as we positively possess will receive mention. And with such an array of novelties as are numbered in our extensive collection, it would soom almost impossible to deviate from this rule. Then, too, our illustrations and pictorial printing will present in substance what wo shall exhibit in reality. No designer's or adapter's skill shall predominate. We shall strip ovary proposition of its romance and bombastic brngadocio, and present it clad in tho garb of reason, reality and truth. If this fails to place us in other than a pleasant and friendly position with our millions of patrons, than the fault lies not with us. Having spent years of incessant labor and thousands upon thousands of dollars in producing and presenting what all tho world acknowledges as tho greatest, grandest imcl most thoroughly interesting exhibition in existence, we feel eminently assured that our efforts arc and will be appreciated. Tho Wallace & Ander son show will positively appoar in Al gona on Friday, Aug. 21. AV. C. T. U. Tho state W. C. T. U. of Iowa will have a ball in readiness on tho stnt fair grounds at tho time of tho coming fair. It is proposed to build a hall that will scat from throe to five hundred. Some exorcises will bo planned which will be of interest each day during tho fair, which commences Aug. 28. Mrs. Marion II. Dunham of Burlington and Mrs. M. E. Hinman of Iowa City, state W. C. T. U. officials, kindly invite all friends of temperance to visit the W, C. T. U. hall on the state fair grounds. An Old Kesldont Doing Well Lu Verne News: While in Dos Moinos tho other day we mot C. N.
