Griswold owned un elevator occupying ground leased to him by the Illinois Central Hallway company. A clause in tho lease exempted the company from liability for damage by lire- caused through its negligence. Tho elevator was burned by sparks from a locomotive, tho Insurance company paid Griswold's loss and then tho Central having declined to pay under the lease, it sued tho railway company. The district court decided In favor of defendant, butthosupromocourt reverses this on tho ground that, exempting a railway company from liability for its negligence, tho clause of the lease IH contrary to sound public policy, therefore void. The caboose attached a C., M. & St. P. way freight going west caught fire at Spencer last Wednesday from tho inside while tho crow wore at supper and it burned to tho ground before tho fire, could bo extinguished. Kvorything inside was a total loss. Chairman Bly tho of tho Iowa republican state committee says tho committee got no funds from outside the state.

Greene's strange orders and conduct for some weeks have given rise to tho report that his mind Is affected. Ho ordered all tho employers black listed who did not allow their men to attend tho late military encampments, ordered out the Marshalltown company, dismissed a lot of Cedar Rapids boys from service, and did other things which Gov. Boies immediately countermanded, The Marshalltown Republican says: " A well known and responsible Cedar Rapids business man was in the city today, and in conversation relative to Adjt, Gen. Greene's recent actions said there was no doubt that the officer's mind, Ja afleotefl, i rop* overwprk a^ jnen^l f$raj», was rbRW but tWPPWr/j ' democrats do not ask ono for him. It is their purpose to send him to the United States senate, a place much more suitable to his tastes, and with that view the campaign will bo conducted In Iowa next year. It is probnblo, however, that Fred K. White, well known in public lite, who mado ft flno record In the first session of tho pros* ont congress, will lie presented for tho department of agriculture. Harper's weekly has tho following item of Interest about Gen. Tuttlo: The Into 0?on. Jas. W. Tuttlo of Iowa wns famous as the leader of the u forlorn hope" by which l |1 ort Donolson was captured for the federal army. When other commanders bad declined to lead their troops against the confederate ramparts, with almost oertiilnnnnthlltt- lion in prospect, Gen. .Smith said to Tuttle, "Colonel, will you take thoso works?" " Support me promptly and I will," was the answer, and within a fow minutes Col, Tuttlo's command, tho Second Iowa Infantry, was In action. Not a man spoke as tho regiment pushed its way up tho hill through a Blorm of grape-shot and shell. Many fell doiul and more wounded, but not u cry or a groan was heard. When his soldiers reached tho redoubts and began toohuubor over them, Col. Tuttlocriod out, "Olvo them , boys,"ami within a few minutes the fort WUD taken. A sensational suit In to bo brought against tho city of Ottumwa. Dr. ,T. Jackson Older Is arranging to retain counsel, and will commence a civil damage case against tho city for damages, for malntalng or allowing to exist, contrary to state law, a saloon, wherein his won, Wllbor 113. Crldor, was sold liquor, which ho drank, and thus brought about Insanity, for which disease ho Is now under treatment. Dr, Crldor claims that ho warned every saloon In Ottumwa against selling liquor to his son, and also notified tho mayor, and Hint as ho had knowledge that tho young man bought liquor in certain irresponsible Haloons, tho elty must stand damages. A jeweler of Boono recently received tho following communication, which accompanied a watch Hont to him to bo repaired: Dear Sir: I hereby send theo my pocket clock, which Btundoth In need of thy friendly correction. Tho last time it was in thy friendly school it was in no way bonmfliUed or profited thereby, for I see by tho indox of its mind that it IH a liar and tho truth la not in it. Purge it therefore I bosoooh thoo, and correct it from th« error of its ways and show it the path wherein it should go. And when thou layout thy correcting hand upon it, BOO thut it iu without passion, lout thou should drive it to destruction, and when thou see It conformable to the aboro mentioned rules Bond it to mo with u true bill drawn in tho spirit of moderation and I will remit to thoo in tho root of all ovll. W. C. Bowman, a, prominent banker and business man of Farmirigton, Iowa, was bunkoed out of $6,000 at Falrfleld Thursday.

A few daya ago Homo gentlemen hailing from Iowa City went to Furmington, and said thoy wore willing to back tho Iowa City man aguiriHt tho Farnilngton wonder for any amount. Bowman was willing and thoy put up$2,fJOOondchoso Fairflold "as neutral ground. When the men arrived there they put up an additional $2,600 and selected an Iowa City man aa stake holder.
