Lust Thursday afternoon a wind storm at Ellsworth, Minn., blow off a part of the depot roof, turned one box car over, and moved a grain warehouse about 30 feet off its foundation. At Koneronzi, two thirds of the roof was blown off the depot, and one cm* blown from the truck. Near Bode, the same morning, lightning struck ten telegraph polos, splintering them so badly that some of them will have to bo replaced. On the Forest City branch of the B. C. R. & N., the same day, three telegraph poles were blown to pieces by lightning. At Lake Park hail foil, but no serious damage is reported. As u result of the recent decision of the Iowa ruilroiul commissioners the railroads hero have posted notices requesting passengers to purchase tickets before entering the cars. \Vhoro tickets are not procured an extra charge will bo made on the train, and the notice says the rule will be strictly observed. _____ An old man by the name of Adams, aged 72 years, residing in Worth county, fell in love with Rosa Benjegerdis, aged 20, and on promise that she would become his wife, ho deeded his valuable farm to her. Rosa subsequently went to Rockwell and "fell in" with G. C. Armsbury, and thinking him a better take, deeded the farm she had fraudulently secured from Adams to Armsbury. Now to top the climax the matter has been finally settled and Adams had to pay $200 to got back the deed of the farm. _______ A very smooth robbery is reported at LoMars. The 10:20 train north Monday night was several hours late from some cause and P. 1). Brewstor, a traveling jewelry man from Chicago, who had come in over the Central earlier in the evening, had his trunks recheckod for the St. Paul train and then came buck down tow%. The trunks for the north bound train were-put on the truck as usual and wheeled out on the platform. The jewelry trunk was at the bottom and two or three other trunks on top of it. Whoever stole it must have been posted as to its contents and the value of them. The time at which the trunk was stolen or how, or by whom, is still a- mystery. No truce of the trunk or the jewelry has been found. Ed. Can field, has announced his decision to accept the appointment to the West Point cadotship, provided ho can pass the physical examination as required. Ho will go to Fort Snelling, Minn., for this examination in a short time. If he passes this ordeal, as ho undoubtedly will, ho will not be required to report for duty at West Point until next June. It seems to be the proper thing to publish the game law about once every year, so in order to keep the record good here it is: "It shall be unlawful for any person to shoot or kill any prairie chicken between the first day of December and the first day of September next following; any woodcock between the first day of January and the 10th day of July, or any pheasants or quails between the first day of January and the first day of October. The penalty is §10 for each bird killed and the person so convicted shall stand committed to the county jail for 80 days, unless such Tine and costs are sooner paid." could use more laborers. Cosimo replied that ho could use " 5 or (?." This Utter fell into the hands of government officials and was read "600,'' and this largo number excited suspicion and led to the investigation. The investigation was not altogether fruitless, for as Mr. Stoteh says that the information contained in the Coslmo letter has led to the discovery of six Italian paupers in New York city, recently brought over under contract, who would bo sent back. Rev. William Cummlngs, pastor at the Methodist Episcopal church at Dayton, has received an anonymous letter, threatening his life and telling him to beware of whilecap vengeance. The writer champions the cause of the Campbcllities, whoso creed Rev. Cummings has been denouncing in the pulpit. By an almost unanimous vote of the citizens of Mt. Pleasant it was decided that the city should purchase the water works system there for ?:!2,500. This settles a long standing controversy between the city and the company. The little village of Onawa was thrown into intense oxcitoment Friday evening by a frightful oceuroneo. About four works ago Dr. A. P. Calhoun was presented by a friend with a pair of live rattlesnakes. The doctor put the snakes in a large glass jar and fixed over the top of it a wire screen to prevent them from escaping. Thu jar wan then placed on a bracket in a corner of the olllce. On Friday evening the doctor and his daughter Nellie paid a visit to a friend on a ranch and returned homo about 10 o'clock, and both went to the doctor's oflleo, the doctor intending to compound a prescription. Shortly after ho lighted a lamp a largo owl. Hew into the room through the transom over tho door, and before they could recover from their surprise it had dnshod against, the lamp, upset it, knocked it to tho floor and the fragments wont Hying over tho room. In the darkness they hoard another crash and tho next instant Nellie uttered a, shriek of agony and fell to tho floor. The venomous reptiles had boon released and one of them had fastened its deadly fangs In tho poor girl's right leg, midway between tho ankle and tho knee. Mr. R. .1. Henderson, postmaster, hoard tho shriek and he it was who crushed the deadly fangs apart. By this time neighbors hod arrived on tho scene, lights wore procured and then antidotes applied, and everything that loving hands and professional skill could do was done to relieve the unfortunate young lady, but without avail, for in a short time sho was dead, with her body terribly swollen and parts of it tho color of tho snake.

Tho olllcers will no doubt keep an eagle eye on all saloons until after the races. Estherviilo Republican: A disgraceful row took place at the close of tho Wintormuto show performance Friday night. Two or throe drunken follows in the audience got into a dispute amongst themselves and resisted the' marshal when that functionary attempts ed to quiet them. As tho, noise got louder tho marshal tried to tako one of tho gang to tho cooler, which ho finally succeeded in doing after having culled eight citizens to assist him. Nearly all tho citizens were hurt in the scrim- jnage. It was an instance whore tho marshal might have used his club to good advantage, and is generally blamed for not doing so. Whisky is at tho bottom of tho wholo thing, and the authorities ought to find out who sold it. But they won't oven try. hen that had just lost her brood, and transferred her affections to tho kittens, [»nd they reciprocated. Tho turkey faithfully covered her kittens every night, and ns they grow older sho thought tlu\y ought to adopt turkey customs and roost on tho fence with her. At first the kittens could not understand their foster-mother, but it is said tho old turkey was successful in getting her hairy brood on the fence, and now every night, they dutifully follow tho old turkey to tholr porch on tho topmost rail and nro apparently ns happy ns though curled up in a hod of straw. Tho great Paris stove works of Locds have been shut down on account of a disagreement among tho stockholders. The Journal says tho suspension of operations is only temporary, and that work will doubtless soon bo resumed under a now management. AVi-iitlicr nml Crops. Tho state bulletin for tho wook ending Aug. i!- says: Tho daily average temperature has been about, !! degrcoH above normal, the week ending with a cool wave verging close to the frost line. A large percentage of cloudiness ro- ducod tho amount of sunshine below normal. Precipitation was largely in excess in tho greater part of the state, resulting in damngo to grain In shocks nml stacks. In some suctions tho lows from this cause will be seriously felt, and tho experience this year gives another in- stanco of tho danger attending the general method of waiting to thresh from the shock. Those who have their grain securely housed or sheltered are in luck. Corn him made rapid growth, and a month of favorable weather will mature the greater part of tho crop. Tho pasturage of the state is as abundant and as green as in Juno, and potatoes will yield immensely. Despite all draw- 1 hacks of heavy storms and incidental local damage, tho season will bring abundant rewards to the producers of food. All l>u|>omlH on thd Votes. A special from Fort Dodge says: Congressman J. P. Dollivor and Capt. J. A. O. Yeoman, whoso names wore frequently associated as opposing candidates for congress in tho Tenth district three years ago, are tho parties to a novel bet. The question involved is tho election or defeat of Gov. Boies this fall. Congressman .Dollivor maintains that Gov. Holes will bo ox-(>ov. Boies after November ,'i, while Capt. Yeoman is equally conlidont that his title will continue to bo "governor" for two years more. According to the conditions of thu wager the loser is to furnish tho winner with a wheel barrow load of turkeys for distribution among his political friends. Tho load is to bo locomotcd through tho principal streets of the city to the county court house, the loser furnishing the locomotive power. The barrow is to bo decorated by tho winner with such Inscriptions OH the party principles may dictate. At tho court house the winner will rocoivo the turkeys and formally present them to his friends with appropriate remarks. Hon. It. M. Wright will be master of ceremonies. Tho Situation lit Ottumwn. Tho Ottumwa Press thus sums up tho situation at that place: Here in Ottumwa, whore tho citizens are hold by the throat, tho business channels are drained by tho liquor trallic, and 100 us foul holl-holos as one can imagine, oxist and are organized to control elections, tho situation has simply assumed this unreasonable form. Tnoy demand tho overthrow of a popular prohibitory measure, under tho guise of a much wanted high license, and every man who votes ut tho dictation of these organized lawbreakers practically surrenders to tho very worst element that over infested a community of intelligent Americans. Tho Ottumwa sulooii- Fst reinforced by his friend tho gambler, Is in tho saddle, and his unconditional ultimatum to tho voter is "stand and deliver." DO YOU WANT AN AUCTIONEER?

He made a thorough investigation and absolves the company. A letter written: by one Zetto of Chicago, and said to be an importer of Italian laborers, caused the trouble.
