THE WEEK'S IOWA'NEWS, The chief astronomical event of Oc^ tober will be the eclipse of tho sun, which will take place on the 20th, and be visible throughout the greater part of North America. All tho ttnlted States may see it except tho western part of Oregon and California. The eclipse will only be partial, however* A little over a third of tho sun's disc will be covered by tho intervening body of tho moon when the obscuration is at its greatest, but this is sufllcient to noticeably diminish the splendor of the solar rays. In central standard time tho eclipse will begin at 10:53a. m. and end nt 1:30 p. m. Tho ntntoenth annual mooting of the Woman's Temperance union of Iowa will bo hoid in Grace M. E. church, Waterloo, Iowa, Oct. 25 to 20. Railroads give reduced rates. Tho very clever swindling of G. N. and Jas. Elder of Clarion tho past week by a sharper is all tho talk of that part of tho state. Tho manner in which it was done indicates that there may possibly have boon other similar swindles by tho same party in northern Iowa, or ut least in some other state. The swindler gave tho name of M. O'Conner and got away with about $0,000 here. Tho man had succedod in gaining tho confidence of J. Standring, an old and reliable real estate dealer of Corwith, Hancock county, lowu, by placing in his hands for sale a quarter section of land in Hancock county, which he said was owned by John Sheridan, in Illinois. Ho remained in that neighborhood some days and then obtained from Mr. Standring a letter of introduction to Mr. Elder of Clarion. He went there, presented the letter, and offered to sell the land to Elder. Tho latter deemed tho price low and decided to buy in partnership with his cousin. They went to O'Conner and informed him that they would accept the proposition and told him to get the deed. O'Conner said he would telegraph immediat- ly to Illinois and have the parties sign the deed and he would bring it around in a few days. Three days after ho returned with tho documents, signed by Mr. and Mrs. John Sheridan, and also had a correct abstract. Tho deed was turned over to the Elders, and in lieu they gave a check for $2,000 and negotiable notes to tho amount of $3,760. O'Conner took these notes to the Clarion bank and had them converted into cash and left. It has since been learned that Mr. and Mrs. Sheridan died several years ago and that the property is held by tho heirs and that the man representing himself as O'Conner has nothing whatever to do with the land and had forged tho deed. It has been learned that he worked this swindle on two or three other persons. All voters in Iowa who live in cities of a population of 2,500 or upwards must register this year. There were 1,035 entries received for the four weeks' trotting and pacing meeting which began at Independence last week. Fifty-live classes filled and there are more horses here than ever before for one meeting, though the purses are comparatively small. Fast time is expected.

Investigation showed that tho disease was not cholera, but a violent dysentery, which is almost as severe and dangerous as cholera, Mr. Walter Willard, a prominent merchant of Jamesburg. two miles from Helmetta, says Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera, and Diarhoea Remedy has given great satisfaction In tho most severe cases of dysentery. It is certainly one of the best things over made. Sold by all druggists. • At Goo. 15. Marble's, Hurt. We intend to move into our new store soon, where we will have more and better room.
