The circumstances of this case are too well known to the reading public to warrant any rehearsal of the details. It will be remembered that during tho lust general assembly H. M. Belvel,. newspaper correspondent, at that time a doorkeeper of the senate, wrote a villainous and scurrilous article concerning Senator Finn, accusing him of drunkenness and immorality. Finn resented the insult by flogging Belvel on the floor of the senate, and later had him indicted for criminal libel. The cuso was set for trial some months ago in Taylor county and when arraigned Belvol pleaded guilty and was lined $500 and costs. Bolvol now informs tho correspondent that he has his brief prepared and will appeal the case to the supremo court, asking a remission of tho fine on tho ground that he was forced to trial before he could prepare a defense, also that the court refused him a continuance when it was impossible for him to get his witnesses together, who hud been run out of the country by parties unknown to him. The case will probably be tried at the October term of the supreme court. In the meantime Belvel's bondsmen stand good for his appearance until the fine is revoked or paid. The trial of Alvin Hasking, attorney for Belvel, who was recently indicted in this county for conspiring in assisting to run the witnesses away who hnd been subpoenaed in tho Finn case, will come up in the criminal court in this district in the near future. Before these cases are disposed of some startling developments are promised by those in a position to know. Judge C. C. Nourse was thrown out of his buggy in a runaway at Des'Moinos. His shoulder was dislocated and his face badly bruised. Miss Jessie Harlan Lincoln, daughter of Hon. Robert T. Lincoln of London, England, has entered the Iowa Wesleyan university at Fairlleld and will take the classic course. on short notice. Insurance For You.

Lafe Young says Secretary of State McFarland is stumping Iowa for protection, dressed in a suit of clothes bought for $10 at an East DOS Moines clothing- store. The secretary is a good looking man and is very well dressed. _______ Sells & Rentfrows' circus visited Sutherland recently and was composed so largely of pickpockets and confidence sharks that after the first performance the city council met, revoked the show license, ordered the proprietors to pay back the stolen money, pull down their tent, load up and leave town as soon as possible. The orders were obeyed, every man who lost money, except in a gambling game, getting it back, by making a demand for it. Ira Cook has presented to the state historical collection a piece of continental money of the denomination of $50, which was left to his father by his (Ira's) grandfather, Capt. Ebenezer Cook of Stockbridge, Mass., who was a soldier in the revolutionary war, and there is a tradition in the Cook family that it was received in payment for military services. On the face of the bill is printed the following: "This bill entitles the bearer to receive fifty Spanish mill dollars, or the value thereof in gold or silver, according to a resolution passedjin congress at Philadelphia Sept. 26,1778." A pyramid of blocks on the face of the bill represents the 13 original states. The bill is 2ix3i Inches and is a genuine curiosity. Mr. Cook presented with it a $10 bill on the bank of Florence, Neb., chartered in 1856 to Cook & Sargent. A very painful accident happened to the little daughter of Rev. R. K. Callaway, pastor of the M. E. church at Primghar, last week. The little girl was playing in the yard and found a match which she struck on the fence and threw it to the ground, and thinking it had gone out sat down on the very spot where the match had fallen, and soon her clothing was in a blaze. The timely assistance of her aunt prevented her being roasted alive. A threshing machine engine boiler exploded near Britt Saturday and one boy by the name of Earth was killed and two others hurt, with a loss of 1,000 bushels of oats burned in the stack. known as a fighter and wrestler in the west. The fight commenced about 1 o'clock on the stage in the presence of several hundred men and women, and the men did some fierce fighting* with Keefe having the best of it. la the fifth round Raway fell to the floor, but, afterward revived and admitted he was whipped. Keefe and his crowd went away, but Raway fainted and died In half an hour. Keefe, Referee Lyle, and Seconds Clihill and O'Donnell are in jail to await the action of the grand jury, and two other seconds are at large. The fight was with six-ounce gloves, and Keefe declares that none of the strokes were hard, but others who saw it say the dead man was badly punished. The enrollment of the state normal school Is larger than it ever was before at this time of the year—531, exclusive of the training school. Everything, says Supt. Knoepfler, is moving along in good shape, and there is great harmony of fooling between the students themselves and between students and faculty. ________ A dispatch from Eagle Grove, the northern Iowa headquarters of tho C. & N. W., states that on Oct. 1 all freight employes will reclovo 10 per cent, increase in wages. Tho same causes which Mr. Peck shows operating in Now York are felt in Iowa. A pest of frogs seems to have come on Little Falls, Minn. For several weeks past the streets and sidewalks have been covered with them, so it is almost impossible to keep from stopping on them. A few days ago a train on the Little Falls & Dakota road was delayed nearly two hours on account of them. The frogs wore so thick on the track that hundreds wore crushed and the wheels slipped. Another peculiar thing in regard to them is that they were all hopping in a northwesterly direction; hardly a single instance could bo seen of their going any other way. The old Emmet house at Esthervilla caught fire Saturday. The fire company was soon on tho ground and extinguished the fire, but not before Lew Brannan, a brakeman on tho B., C. R. & N. railroad, who occupied the room where the fire started, had been burned to death. His parents live at Sioux Falls. No one knows how tho fire originated. _______ There was no truth in the reports published last week about a race war at Spencer. The Reporter says " the ridiculous reports that have appeared in the papers round about regarding the arrest of a few tramp negroes in Spencer must have been sent out by some one wishing to do our city harm. The facts are no one was even shot at, much less killed or wounded." on TfOR |25 YOU CAN BUY -H A Sewing Machine that retails for 145. Get full information at the U. p. M. offlce. Iowa is now fifth in railway milage, with 8,444 miles. Illinois leads with 10,235, followed by Pennsylvania, Kansas and Texas, in the order named. A Sunday of revelry for the Sioux City sports over in Covington ended in a murder. George B,away, an all-round tough, known as " Billy the Kid," bad been spoiling for a nght all day, and during the performance at the Fashion theatre a six-round boxing match was arranged, for him with Jaol? JCeefe, well 1 cured hUa' A big pi-actical joke was played E. G. Larson at Fort Dodge on his return from Europe. He was detained at New York in the cholera quarantine, • and when he got home the city authorities visited him to inspect him again. They gave him a careful examination and fumigated him with sulphur, assa- fcedita, and every other bad-smelling drug they could think of. Before the job was done the crowd of jokers had all gathered and one laughed, when Larson saw that the whole thing was a sell. He took it good naturedly and enjoyed it as much as could bo expected. John Johnson, while helping Mr. Fatland thresh, caught his hand in the cylinder and mashed the hand and arm nearly to the elbow. The doctors of Belmond amputated it about two inches below the elbow. It happened like this: He was feeding, a tooth became loose and he motioned to the driver to stop and then pulled the feed board out and in tho act slipped and ran his hand into the cylinder. This from the Corwith Present. Too Much of a Risk. It is not unusual for coins contracted in the fall to hang 011 all winter. In such cases catarrh or chronic bronchitis are almost sure to result. A fifty cent bottle of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy will cure any cold. Can you afford to risk so much for so small an amount) This remedy is intended especially for bad colds and croup, and can always be depended on. Sold by all druggists. A Cure for Rheumatism. Dr. P.

LATEST styles stiff and soft hats for men and boys. Geo. L. Galbraith & Co. Specimen Coses. S. H. Clifford of New Castle, Wls., was troubled with neuralgia and rheumatism, his stomach was disordered, his liver was affected to an alarming degree, appetite fell away, and he was terribly reduced ia flesh and strength. Three bottles of Electric Bitters cured him. Edward Shepherd of Harrisburg, III., had a running sore on his leg of eight years' standing; used three bottles Electric Bitters and seven boxes Buok- len's Arnica Salve and his leg is sound and well.
