The old fort was taken apart piece by piece and marked and put together again at Chicago just as it has stood since the famous raid which made it celebrated. The old fort was thrown opon to the public during the world's fair dedication and was the center of much interest. The venture promises to be one of the most successful that has yet been undertaken in Chicago. Prof. Phinney has called a state convention to meet in Des Moines, Nov. 15, to decide upon a plan to secure representation of each county in Iowa in the state band. That evening also, and twice more, at intervals of about a month, he proposes to give a grand concert with the entire strength of the organization. At the convention he will exhibit a sample of the uniforms he has ordered for the band. They are very elaborate and ornate. The name of the county from which each representative comes will appear on the coat he wears. The Epworth League in the United States now numbers 000,000, although it is yet but four years old. There were 600 delegates present at the Oskaloosa convention last week. The Messenger says it is hardly probable that the Fort Dodge packing house will open this fall. The reason is the same that shuts down other packing houses in the state, namely, there is not enough margin in killing hogs at the present time to warrant. Hogs and pork are too near the same price. The Register tells the following on J. R. Sage, chief of the state weather bureau at Des Moines, One bright Sunday not long ago he was in his office. While there the telephone bell rang vigorously and after the tintinabulation ceased he inquired the cause of the alarm. "I didn't get any ice this morning," came over the wires, " what is the matter?" " We haven't any in," replied Sage. " When will you have some?" " I can't say; just now we are trying to make corn weather and have no ice in sight." u Why, who are you; isn't this the ice company?" " No, this is the weather bureau." " Oh, h-—!" came back over the wire, and the bell jingled so viciously that the observer had to leave the shop, Adjt.-Gen, Greene is arranging for the participation of the Iowa National guards in the worlds fair next year.

Ho wrote to Mr. Holmes for an autograph and Wednesday received the appended little gem. in the poet's handwriting. It Is legibly written, although it shows the age of the writer, and is as follows: Build thoo more stately mansions, O my soul, As the swift seasons roll; Leave thy low, vaulting past, Let each now temple nobler than the last, Shut those poor heavens with a dome more vast, Till thou at length are Tree, Leaving thine outgrown shell by life's un- resting soa.

Warren of Dickens] was found in his barn last Wednesday with the whole top of his head blown off. Near him lay a shot gun "which had been dichargod.

He said that when he came to town he found flags flying, drums beating and a general jollification. On asking what it all meant he was told that it was on account of Reed's arrival. Said Roland: It was the greatest ovation I ever had and I had just begun to think that I was a great man, when I learned that the demonstrations were in honor of Tom Reed, who is nothing but a congressman.
