Aidrich of the historical department at the capitol has made a rich find, although it is not strictly speaking, a find, having cost the department $100. It is the only file in existence of the first volume of the first newspaper published in Iowa. The paper is the DuBuqtie Visitor for 1836. It is a prettily printed folio six columns wide, and the top date line of the first paper taken from the press bears the words, "DuBuquo, (lead mines) Wisconsin Territory, May 11, 1830." The motto of the paper stands out in bold typo under the name, "Truth Our Guide, Tho Public Our Aim." It isavory cleverly edited little sheet, and many Iowa weeklies of today would bo improved by imitating it. John King was the first editor and Wm, C. Jones the first printer, and the paper shows evidence of hard work, enterprise and good newspaper service. King's daughter was the first white girl born in Iowa. King died only recently at Dubuquo. The Iowa State Teachers' association will hold its 38th annual session at Cedar Rapids Doc. 27-29. It promises to bo one of the most interesting meetings in the history of the society. The people of Humboldt are making groat preparations for the holding of the nineteenth annual mooting of the Iowa Improved Stock Breeders'associa- tion in that city Doc. 7-9. Other meetings held at the same time and place are: Iowa Short Horn Breeders' association, Iowa Swino Breeders' and the Iowa Sheep Breeders' and Wool Growers' associations. The people of Humboldt will do themselves proud in entertaining all these associations. H. W. Arnold was tried at Iowa Falls for whipping a pupil in school. He won. Tho birch is still recognized as a necessary school adjunct. Tho contract for making the monument in honor of Julien Dubuquo has been let to Mr. Fox of Chicago for 53,600. It is to be dedicated July 4 next, and President Cleveland is to be invited to attend. The design shows a shaft of gray Vermont granite 37 feet high. The base consists of several courses ol granite, diminishing in progression up to the die. On opposite sides of the die are bas relief figures in bronze, three feet in diameter, showing scenes of Julien Dubuque's first experience in that section. Among others inoludoc in the sketches submitted is one showing him in the act of bargaining with representatives of the Sac and Fox tribes for lands in that vicinity; others show load-mining in the early days etc. These bronzes will be executed in Brussels and will cost $300 apiece Above the die is the plinth, a huge block of gray granite with rustic finish, and supporting the graceful octagona' spire. The apex of the spire reveals curtains partly drawn aside, expressive of Dubuque's prophecy that a great city would grow up. At the charity ball in Dubuque las week, Gen. Geo. W. Jones and Mrs. D B. Henderson headed the grand march The general is a lad of eighty-nine sum ere lost in the fight. Several fresh- nen, in resisting the sophs, were rough- handled.

AS GOOD TO GUESS BY AS ANT. Woatlmr Indications That Never Fall Kxcopt In This Locality. The Iowa weather bureau issues tho 'allowing weather rules, which were adopted by the farmers' club of the American institute of New York. They are endorsed us suggestive, though not entirely reliable: 1. When the temperature falls suddenly there is a storm forming south of you. 2. When the temperature rises suddenly there is a storm forming north o you. 3. The wind always blows from a re- u on of fair weather toward a region where a storm is forming. 4. Cirrus clonds always move from a region where storm is in progress to a region of fair weather. 5. Cumulus clouds always move from a region where a storm is forming. 6. When cirrus clouds are moving rapidly from the north or northeast, there will be rain within 24 hours- no matter how cold it is. 7. When cirrus clouds are moving rapidly from south or southeast, there will be a cold hailstorm on tho morrow, if it be in the summer, and if in winter there will be a snowstorm, 8. The wind always blows in a circle around a storm, and when it blows from tho north the heaviest rain is east of you; if it blows from tho south tho heaviest rain is west of you; if it blows from the east the heaviest rain is south of you. 9. The wind never blows unless rain is falling within a thousand miles of you. 10. Whenever heavy frost occurs a storm is forming within a thousand miles northwest of you. A SHOET SEASON AT LU VEBNE, The Preacher AVho Denounced President Harrison as a Saloon Bum Seeks New Pastures, The two following items tell their own story, One is from the Livermore Gazette which says: " Rev, Kilbourne, the Methodist minister who was stationed at LuVerne this year, and who preached something of a political sermon there just before election, has thought it best to take a new field »f labor, and is now stationed at Clarion. So much objection was made to his political sermon that it was thought to be impossible to raise his salary at Lu- Verne." The other is from the Lu Verne News, which says: "Rev. J. W. Forsythe will preach at the M. E. churah in this place next Sunday at the usual hours. We understand that ROT, Porsy tho will minister to tho congregation here regularly during the remainder of the conference year. This will be good news as he is a good speaker and a gentleman," This change about is due to the andenei_ erne people against t'he unwarranted prompt and energetic protest of the Lu- Yerne people against the unwarranted and indecent partisan stump speech Rev, Kilbourne indulged in th* Sunday before election. He announced that he would speak on politics. What he did wa,g to assail President Harrison's as a man, denouncing htm in buna and whiskey sympa- 8 * was peouUwly a ' ftt ,,J hwlea We wife, ipgoted, hi? BPWOW " feelings, m - ~ 'elm. ^Al^
