Some time since many of the country newspaper publishers of Iowa, Minnesota and South Dakota withdrew their business from the newspaper unions, which furnished "ready prints" or u 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 and 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 DCS Moinos, Chicago, and Omaha and member of the "combine." Tho come is being watched with much cern by the country publishers. is a out- con- 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 regents of 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. Tho library will bo opened to the uso of scholars throughout the state, and lectures will be delivered at' various convenient points, thus greatly extending the usefulness of this groat institution. Prof. J. J. McConnell, of the chair of pedagogy, has been elected university ox- tension director. Tho places at which the lectures will be given are not yet selected. ______ In the number of school teachers employed Iowa is second to only one state in the union— Now York. New York employed, in round numbers, 31,000, while Iowa employs 20,000, with Illinois next in point of numbers. gave Mason City's school census 1,335 children ef school ago. Tho Boone News says a big crowd went to Amos to hoar George Kennan, the great writer on Siberian exiles and Russian prison*: "Wo 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 ho will return via Panama." _____ The state contention 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. Cat-others of Dos Moinos; treasurer, D. W. Fabs of Lie Mare. The Des Moines News says that the report of beer Bold in Iowa in 188$ and 1890 made to'the-brewers' national con- volition this year effectually disposes of the big stories current about ,tbjj con* sumption of liquors in this state. Tho report showed the amount of boor sold in Iowa in'1882 to bo 202,491 barrels; amount sold in 1890, only 88,200 barrels. As 1890 was original package your, probably half of the amount Bold 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 been received at the treasury department. So far as the establishment of now banks is concerned, Iowa is outranked only by Pennsylvania and Texas, but in the matter of capital invested in the now institutions it is ahead of the Keystone stato considerably. , An Illinois preacher is credited with the following petition: "O, Lord, wo pray that the excursion train going oast on tho Hannibal £ St. Joseph railroad this morning man not run off tho track and kill any church members that may bo 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 tho funeral of a member of tho church who has boon killed on a Sunday excursion. Keep tho train on tho track and preserve it from any calamity, that all church members among the excursionists may have opportunity for repentance, that their wins may bo forgiven; wo ask it for Christ's sake, amen." At tho Governor's Grey's rifle range in Dubuquo Capt. Thrift was cleaning a gun supposed to bo empty when tho shell exploded and went through his loft hand, tearing out tho knuckle of tho third finger. The United States supremo court has declared that a decision rendered by tho Iowa supremo court in 1887, nnd which has since been followed by tho supreme tribunals of othor states, iabad 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 hla or her injuries^ Tho United States supremo court, in a case in which tho lower court had refused to grant an order for a medical examination of a woman who had fallen out of a Bleeping car berth, says that this cannot be done. "No right," reads tho opinion, which was prepared by Justice Gray, "is.hold more sacred or is more carefully guarded by the common law than tho right of every individual to tho 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 at Grlnnoll, Saturday, and tho result Was a dj-awTeach side having 12 points. They went to Iowa City and played tho state university team Monday. Hamilton county farm lands, says tho Freeman, are rapidly advancing in value as may be seen by the prices for which farms are selling in this vicinity this fall. The MoKee farm containing 108 acres just west ol town was sold yesterday for $75 per acre, the highest price we believe that any farm in Jhis locality hag yet brought. Jas. Welsph sold a half section just south of town for $35 an acre to tho same man. He bought this land nearly a year ago for $18 per acre. _ In tho examination of tho competency of a witness in tho district court at Des Moinos, one of the attorneys argued that the person in controversy should not bo allowed to testify, "because, "said ho, "sho don't even know whore hell is.*' "Do you?" asked Judge Holmes, look-; ing up quietly. It was several minutes before tho bailiff had restored order. Tho witness. was allowed to testify and told as straight a story of facts as any one in tho case. _ Tho Hawkoyo stato Is entitled to the banner for the steadiness and capital of its banking Institutions, says a Washington special. Since tho national banking law went into effect 27 years ago, there havo been but two failures of these corporations in Iowa, and according to tho olllciala at tho treasury department, there are now 151 national banks in tho state. Mrs. Anna R. Fogarty of Fort Dodge is tho possessor of a valuable curiosity in tho shape of a bible that is just 24!l years old. The book Is yellow with ago but is still easily read. It bears tho imprint "1048" and has been In Mrs. Fogarty's family for over 200 years. Tho state mooting of tho Epworth league will bo hold at Waterloo on Nov. 17 and 18. It Is expected that 450 delegates will bo present, there being that number of leagues In tho state. Many visitors aro also expected to attend. Tho day meetings will bo hold In the First M. E. church, and the evening and sunrise meetings in Grace church. A very interesting programme has been arranged and a good time is expected. Sioux City loses $10,000 on tho corn palace this year. A singular circumstance happened on an excursion train on the Mason City & Fort Dodge railroad tho othor night while returning from IPort Dodge. The train was in motion near Mesorvey when one of tho drive wheels broke from the axlo, loft tho trade and ran out Into tho country about 40 rods. The train was stopped in time to prevent u serious accident. Everything gets round in a sowing circle. Local sports and athletes at Cedar Rapids are much interested in the report that a game of foot ball for the championship of tho northwest Is about to be played there. The team at the University of Wisconsin claims to hold the pennant and has challenged the boys at Iowa college, Grlnnoll, for u game to bo played In Cedar Rapids. The Grinnell eleven has held the championship of Iowa for two years and is anxious for new worlds to conquer. Wanted. At Wavorly hotel, Ernmotaburg, a good laundry girl.
