A great deal of surprise is manifest over the serving of papers upon Dr. J. E. Green, a prominent phyciclan, for damages, » action being brought by a young girl named Maggie Locke, also a resident of that place, who claims $3,000 damageto her character, general health and men" tal anguish. She claims that about Oct. 10 his treatment of her ruined her character and health and caused her to suffer mentally to the extent of the above named amount. When the case is brought to trial it will no doubt cause intense Interest. Dr. Green is supposed to bo worth about §25,000, and will, no tloub', fight the case to a finish. The annual meeting of the Northern Iowa Horticultural society will bo held at Humboldt, Dec. 20-22, 1892. A good programme has been prepared of suffl- I cient length to occupy three days. The Sabbath School Association of I Iowa will hold its annual mooting in the M. E. church, Cedar Falls, Dec. 911. Dr. Waylnnd Hoyt of Minneapolis will give the opening address. Hon. L. S. Coffin and other well-known men I will givoaddressos. .las. W. Beets, a prominent farmer of .Jackson county, was swindled out of .,500 by confidence workers, who represented themselves as agents for the Loulaianna state lottery. Beets is an aged man and very weathy. Monday last a man representing himself as F., W. Chick, a well-known Kansas City banker, called at the Beets residence and entered into a contract for the purchase of the farm for a consideration -of $5,000. On the way back to Indepen- denoe they met the lottery men. The usual result followed. Mr. Beets was induced to show $1,500 and was permitted to see $1,500 more in fcho possession the lottery men. He was - understood to have won the latter sum, but both it and his own money magically disappeared. Detectives have been placed on the track of the confidence operators but so far without success. A young woman last week committed suicide at San Diego, Cal., because word did not come from a bank in Iowa as she expected. The telegram arrived, a short time after her death. Here is an item for those who think that the rainbow reaches the earth in California: J. L. Budd, professor of horticulture at'the State Agricultural college, says that an acre of grapes in. Iowa, on suitable soil, with thoughtful attention to selection of varieties, vin- yard care and marketing, will give greater profits than an acre of raisin grapes at Fresno; and an acre of Duchess apples in Iowa has the past season given more clear profit than an acre of oranges in southern California. At a democratic jollification meeting I at Nora Springs and. effigy of Geo. D. Moore, the postmaster at that place, was hanged and afterwards torn down and burned. Mr. Moore and many others are highly indignant at this, and as a result two citizens of Nora Springs , have been arrested and bought to an- I the charge of libel. The Northwestern depot at Wall I Lake was burglarized last week. Iowa's farm mutual insurance com| panies have $17,673,800 in policies. Abraham IvlucoJn, When leaving his home at Springfield, 111., I to bo inaugurated president of the United States, made a farewell address to hia old friends and neighbors in which ho said, I " Neighbors, give your boys a chauce." These words come with as much force to- I day as they did thirty years ago. How give them this chance? Up in the northwest is a great empire waiting for young and sturdy follows to come and develop It end " grow up with the country." All over this broad land are the young fellows, the boys that Lincoln referred to, seeking to better their condition and get on in Hie. Here is their chancel The country referred to lies along the Northern Pacific railway. Here you can find pretty much anything you want. In Minnesota, and in the Bed River valley of Novtb, Dakota the finest of prairie lands fitted for wheat and grain, or as well for diversified farming. In western North Dakota and Moutana are stock ranges limitless in extent, clothed with the most nutritious of grasses, If a, fruit farming region is wanted there is the whole state of Washington to select f ropa. As for scenic delights the Northern Pacific railroad passes through a country unparalleled. In crossing the Rooky, pitter Roots, and Cascade mountains the greatest mountain scenery to be seen in the Unites States from the car windows is found. The wonderful bad lands, wonderful in graceful form and glowing color, are a poem. Lakes Pend d' Oreille and Coeur d 1 AUme are alone worthy of a trans-continental trip, while they ara the fisherman's untima thule. The ride along Clark's fork of the Columbia river is a daylight dream. To cap the climax this is the only way to reach the far-famed Yellowstone park. To reach and see all this the Northern Pacific railroad furnishes trains and service of unsurpassed excellence.
