Souio time since many of the country newspaper publishers of Iowa, Minnesota tind South Dakota withdrew' their business from the newspaper unions, which furnished "ready prints" or " patent insides" and belongedto a combine. They then gave their business to the Mason City Newspaper company, an independent institution in Mason City. The combine circulated injurious stories about the independent company arid the latter has .decided to retaliate by commencing suit in the United States 'court for $50,000 damages against the Western Newspaper union, which has branch houses in Des Moines, Chicago, and Omaha and is a member of the "combine." The outcome is being watched with much concern by the country publishers. Fourteen members of the salvation army, including Maj. Koppel of Dos Moines, are "in jail at Newton. They are lying out a fine imposed upon them for marching on the streets. Ft. Dodge is talking of organizing a military company to join the Sixth regiment. ' The rogentS;.p,|<. the state university have decided to adopt the plan of the university extension, which has proved so popular and valuable in Now York, Pennsylvania and other states. The library will bo opened to the use of scholars throughout th.e state, and lectures will bo delivered at various convenient points, thus greatly extending the usefulness of this great institution. Prof, J. J. McConnell, of the chair of pedagogy, has been elected university ox- tension director. The places at which the lectures will bo given are not yet selected. ______ In the number of school teachers employed Iowa is second to only one state in the union—New York. Now York employed, in round numbers, 81,000, while Iowa employs 26,000, with Illinois next in point of numbers. Mason City's school census 1,335 children of school age. gave The Boono News says a big crowd went to Ames to hear George Kennan, the great writer on Siberian exiles and Russian prisons: "' Ne> had the pleasure of an interview with the distinguished traveler, after the lecture, in company with Mr. Aldrich, and found him a very pleasant man of the world, quick in apprehension, communicative, of medium size, and unusual bodily vigor, about 40 years of age, and capable of much more hard work. His present lecturing tour takes him to the Pacific coast, whence he will return via Panama." ______ The state convention of Y. P. S. C. E. closed at Burlington Wednesday. The following officers for the coming year were elected: President, Austin D. Wolf of State Center; secretary, Dr. Frances S. Carothers of Des Moines; treasurer,'D. W. Fabs of L Q Mars. The Des Moines News says that the report-of beer sold in. Jowa in 188? and 1890 made to>th« brewers' national cg> vention this your effectually disjiwsos of the big storios current tibouf. the con sumption of liquors in this state. The report showed the amount of boor sold in Iowa in 1882 to bo 292,401 barrels; amount sold in 1890, only 88,200 barrels. As 1890 was original package year, probably half of the amount sold was original packages. Within the last year thirteen now national banks have been organized in Iowa, with a capital of $1,825,000, and no reports of shaky institutions have boon received at the treasury department. So far us the establishment of now banks is concerned, Iowa is outranked only by Pennsylvania and Texas, but in the mutter of capital invested in the new institutions it is ahead of the Keystone state considerably. An Illinois preacher is credited with the following petition: "O, Lord, wo pray that the excursion train going east on the Hannibal & St. Joseph railroad this morning man not run off the track and kill any church members that may be on- board. Church members on Sunday excursions are not in condition to die; and in addition to this it is embarrassing to a minister to officiate at the funeral of a member of the church who has boon killed on a Sunday excursion. Keep the train on the- track and preserve it from any calamity, that all church members among the excursionists may have opportunity for repentance, that their sins may bo forgiven; wo ask it for Christ's sake, amen." ______ At the Governor's Grey's rifle range in Dubuquo Capt. Thrift was cleaning a gun supposed to bo empty when the shell exploded and wont through his loft hand, tearing out the knuckle of the third finger. The United States supremo court has declared that a decision rendered by the Iowa supreme court in 1887, and which has since boon followed by the supreme tribunals of other states, is bud law. The Iowa court hold that a plaintiff in a suit for damages could bo subjected to a surgical examination to determine the nature and extent of his or her injuries. The United States supreme court, in a case in which the lower court had refused to grunt an order for a medical examination of a woman who hud fallen out of a sleeping car berth, says that thia cannot bo done. "No right," reads the opinion, which was prepared by Justice Gray, "is held more sacred or is more carefully guarded by the common law than the right of every individual to the possession and control of his own person, free from all restraint or interference of others, unless by clear and unquestionable authority of law." The foot ball team of the Minneapolis state university played the Iowa college champions atGrinuell, Saturday, and the result was a draw, each side having 12 points. They went to Iowa City and played the state university team Monday. •' Hamilton county farm lands, gays the Freeman, are rapidly advancing in value as may bo seen by the prices for which farms are soiling in this vicinity this fall. The McKee farin containing 108 acres just west of town was sold yes terday for $75 pov acre,- the high.est j price we believe that any farm in this has yet brought, Jas. Welaoh sold a half section just south of town for $,'15 un acre to tho same man. He bought this land nearly a year ago for 1 $18 per acre. ^^^^^ In tho examination of tho competency of a witness in the district court jit Dos Moinos, one of tho attorneys argued that tho person In controversy should not bo allowed to testify, "because, "said ho, "tiho don't oven know whore hell Is." "Do you?" askod Judge Holmes, looking up quietly. It was several minutes boforo tho bulllIT had restored order. The witness was ullowod to testify and told as straight a story of facts as any ono in tho case. The Hawkoyo state Is entitled to the banner for tho steadiness and capital of its banking institutions, says a Washington special. Since the national bunking law went Into effect 27 yean* ago, there have boon but two failures of those corporations in Iowa, and according to tho officials at tho treasury department, there uro now 151 national bunks in tho state.
