A recent Pittsburg dispatch srtys: Edwnrd Puller, who said ho was a farmer from Cherokee, Iowa, appeared at police headquarters In this city this morning and asked to be provided with moans to reach his home. He said ho had just come from New York, whero ho had boon a victim of tho " green goods" swindlers. He gave tho swindler $1,000 for a satchel which ho soon found was filled with bricks. Pie only had funds enough loft to carry him as far as this city, and he wanted to get homo. Tho police notified his sister of his predicament. A girl at Humboldt pourod keroscono on a fire in Rev. Byrne's homo. She got immediate results. Tho top of the stove, tho stove pipe and most of what was in tho stove and plpo sprang into the air and permeated every corner of the room and out into tho next. Tho kitchen was nearly ruinod and the girl was burned but not badly. The judges and clerks of election in Dos Moinos are tolling spmo amusing stories concerning tho manner in which people cast the now Australian ballot. In one precinct an old democrat slid into tho room late in the afternoon, and after curiously watching several men cast their votes, he sidled up to tho rail and after parleying with tho judges got his ballot and was steered toward a booth. When he reached it ho turned around and asked the judge: " How do you got into it?" and one of them, considerable of a wag, pointed to the head of a nail on one of tho uprights to the booth and answered: " Just press the button and it will do tho rest." Unsuspectingly ho did so, but there was no result, and so after sheepishly looking back over his shoulder at the silent officials, he got down on hands and knees and crawled under the curtain. Ho came out the same way and deposited his ballot. . L. C-ALBIAITH & CO. ——————————— ••••^^^^••^^•••^^ I — Removal Sale.

State Superintendent Knoepfler has issued a circular to the county superintendents and directors calling their attention again to the exhibit which it is desired that Iowa schools make at the Columbian exposition. While a competitive prize exhibit of school work will be held at Cedar Rapids at the time of the meeting of the State Teachers' association, it is desired to impress upon the minds of teachers and directors that those who are unable to prepare an exhibit for the Cedar Rapids meeting will not bo debarred from exhibiting at the world's fair. All schools are urged to lend a, loyal support and co-operation to J. W. Jarnagin of Montezuma, superintendent of Iowa's educational exhibit to tho world's fair, in his onerous and responsible duties. The matter deserves attention. Iowa took high honors at the school exhibit at Madison, Wis., at New Orleans and captured a medal at the Paris exposition. She should not take a back seat next year. Gen, Geo. W. Jones, the venerable ex-senator from Iowa, paid a visit a day or two ago to the grounds on Benning's road, near Washington, on which famous Graves-Cilley duel was fought over 54 years ago. Yet even so long ago as that Gen. Jones was 34 years of age. He was second to Cilley, who fell mortally wounded at tho third fire. The exhibition of poultry to be held in Sioux City on the 17th, 18th, 19th and 20th of January, by the Northwestern Iowa Poultry association, will be the first held since the association's organization, and will be the largest ever held in this part of the state. There will be between $1,200 and $1,600 offered in prizes by the association, besides a large number of special prizes offered by fanciers throughout the state which are now in the hands of the secretary. tho beer he started for tho fawn. He was staggering along tho road when It occurred to one of the fellows about the saloon that it would be a good joke to shoot a hole through tho jug. He tried it with ft Wf lester rifle, 82 calibre. Tho ball st/Aick the index finger of Ryan's right hand, which hold the Jug, took it off, and glancing to the left went through Ryan's.left leg. The men at tho saloon then hastened with him to tho hospital. •". John A. Kasson has presented to the state historical collection a number of valuable manuscripts.

If you wish to take the trip of a lifetime purchase tho low-rate excursion tickets sold by all tho principal lines in tho United States and Canada via the Northern Pacific railroad to tho Yellowstone National park, Pacific coast, and Alaska. The trip is made with the highest decree of comfort in the elegant vestibuled trains of the Northern Pacific railroad, which carry dining cars and luxurious Pullman sleeping cars from Chicago. St. Paul and Minneapolis to Montana ana the Pacific coast, without change, and special Pullman sleepers from St. Paul and Minneapolis to tho Yellowstone park. The scenery en route is tho most magnificent to be found in the seven states through which the road passes. Beautiful mountains, rivers, valleys, lakes and plains follow each other in rapid succession to delight the tourist, who will also find interest in tho agricultural, mining, lumbering, Industrial and other interests associated with the development of the : great northwest. The crowning glory of tho trip through the northwest, however, Is tho visit to Yellowstone park, the land of hot springs, geysers, and gorgeous canyons', and to Alaska with its endless ocean channels, snowcapped peaks, Indian villages, and giant glaciers. If you wish to investigate this suggestion further, send to Charles 8. Fee, general passenger agent N. P. U. R., St. Paul, Minn., for copies of the handsomely illustrated "Wonderland" book, Yellowstone park and Alaska folders.—Si Do You Want.a Well?

Never in the history of Kansas has that state had such bountiful crops aa this year. The farmers could not get enough hands to harvest the great crop, and the Santa Fe railroad made special rates from Kansas City and other Missouri river towns to induce harvest hands to go into tho state. The wheat crop of the state will b« from sixty to sixty-five million bushels, and the quality is high. The grass crop i» made, and is a very large one; the early potatoes, rye, barley, and oat crops are made, and all are largo. The weather has been propitious for corn, and it is the cleanest, best- looking corn to be found in the country today. Cheap rates are made from Chicago, St. Louis, and all points on the Santa Fe east of the Missouri river to all points in Kansas, and a chance is given for eastern farmers to see what the' great Sunflower state can do. A good map of Kansas will be mailed free upon application to Jno. J.
