Wright in DCS Moines, i was determined that tho next bienniu reunion shall be hold Pob. 10 and 11 1892. Tho following named gentlemen have boon invited to deliver addresses upon such topics of early Iowa historj or personal recollection as each mai soloct: Hon. James Harlan of Mt Pleasant; Hon. Goo. W. Jonos of Dubuque; Hon. T. E. Parvin of Codai Rapids; Hon. W. H. M. Pusoy of Coun oil Bluffs; Hon. Elijah Sells of Salt Lalco City; Hon, A. B. P. Hildroth of Char-lot City; Hon. 3. J. Selman of Bloomfiold and Hon. G. S. Bailey of Vornon. The vote of Mason City for govornoi was 830, and that of Charles City was 744. It is rumored in I. N. G. circles that Co. G of LeMars is the company that will bo mustered out of the Sixth regiment on account of small attendance at camp, and their places to bo Hlled by the company organized at Fort Dodge. The fifteenth annual convention of tho Iowa Dairy association mot in Wa- vorly lust Wednesday. About 200 dalrymen.of this and adjoining states, besides about 50 New York and Chicago lommission mon, were there to take part in tho proceedings. Among tho eminent dairymen present wore ox-Gov. Hoard of Wisconsin; A. C. Tuppor, dairy commissioner, of Iowa; Dr. E. F, Parsons of tho United States agri- :ultural department; James Wilson ind Professors L. H. Palmer and E. G. Patrick of the Iowa State Agricultural school at Ames, and Professors Henry and Baboock of tho Wisconsin State Agricultural school at Madison, Wis. Sioux City will build a corn palace next year as usual. Tho loss of the present year has boon paid. The first carload of orunges of the season have arrived in Des Moinos. They are of tho fancy, bright, paper- skinned variety, for which the peninsula state is famous, and wore shipped from Esmeralda, a little orange growing community situated on that strip of water, half river and half sea, called Indian river, and which has tho reputation of producing along its banks the finest specimens of tho citrus family in the world. The crop in Florida this year is announced to bo double that of any previous year, and consequently prices are expected to be low. W. D. Forbes of Wall Lake ia the state farmers' alliance organizer for the district Kossuth is in. H. C. Wheeler was in Carroll between trains Monday, says the Herald, looking as smiling and happy as If the 8,000 plurality had been in his column of figures. A man with 8,000 acres of the best land in Iowa and $40,000of fine stock doesn't need a public ( offlce for pleasurable employment. He is now in California on business. A workman at the Burlington '/ire nutttreeg factory ruined a circular saw Saturday while cutting a black walnut plank. It was found that in the heart of H knot a broken mule's <ihoe and a short piooc of iron chain, which were firmly imbedded, had done tho mischief. Tho piece of timber is from tho south, and it is believed that tho shoo and chain had boon used as canister during the late war and had lodged in tho heart of tho tree thirty years ago, which in tho meantime grew from a sapling to a monarch of tho forest. P. B. Wolf, who resigned tho senator- ship in tho Clinton district, has been appointed by Gov. Boies district judge to succeed A. B. Howott, who resigned to go west. C. W. Williams says ho will not go to Chicago but will remain at Indopond once. As a result of tho democratic victory in Iowa, and the hope that tho prohibi tion law will bo soon repealed, the Un ion Stock Yai'ds company of Sioux City announces that it will soon begin tho construction of a largo brewery. It is also assorted that two breweries which have boon idle for several years will bo started up. A Forest City writer says that land buyers are still flocking that way, tho price being no object, just so they can Jtiy a Winnobago farm. One 100 acre tract in tho west part of that county recently sold for $18 per acre, with no improvements except tho breaking, and :t was J0 miles from a market. Thoro .s still plenty of land yet, that mn bo bought at about $12.50 per acre, but they are going rapidly. By Fob. 1 t will bo $15 land and scarce at that figure. A man in Jofforson county claims to have raised 405 full sized squashes on one vino. At a mooting of tho Iowa Dairy association at Wavorly F. N. Chase, socro- ary of the Iowa Columbian Expos! tlan iommissionore, spoko of tho progress hat was being made toward a big Iowa ixhibit at tho World's Fair and tho mportanco of tho dairy interests being iroperly represented. At tho conclu- ion of his remarks a resolution was idoptod to take proper steps in the matter and urging the legislature to nako the necessary appropriations. Gov. Hoard said at the dairy meeting ast week that many farmers are mllk- ng their cows at a loss of 07 cents a ow or thereabouts. The Tenth district gives 2,509 ropub- ican majority. Dr. Koeley, who cures tho drink nab;, was lately given a reception at Pitts* urg, Pa. The Commercial Gazette aid: "No slmlliar company has over teen assembled in this city before, as it onsisted mainly of men who a few months ago were victims of either liq- or, morphia or cocaine habits," There rere over 100 "graduates" present, and ery many of them brought their wives nd daughters, who seemed to worship he very ground the doctor trod. Hon. L. S. Coffin left last week for few York, He will be present, at an mportant meeting of representatives f the railway commissiona of five tates. TheJ meeting is held for the purpose of forming a, bill to be present* ed for tho approval of congress next wipter requiring all railways, in the ~ " " to ' '•• ' ami brakes on all trains. Mr. Coffin says that such a bill is curtain of pas- sago at tho coining session of congress. Now !H tho tinio to sot willow posts for a live fence, and tho following plan has boon tried with unfailingmiocuss by many fanners: Cut your posts of tho required length and six.o, being careful not to Injure tho bark in Immlling them. With a fonco augur boro to the depth of two and a half foot and sot Into in tho fall, without disturbing the bark. Do this work carefully, and each post set will not only curry your wire but will bocomo a troo of vigorous growth. R. M. King, the Sovnth Day Advent- is t, who acquired famo through being iirrostod for plowing on Sunday, died suddenly noar Dyorsburg last week. It is a year and a half ago since King was urrostod and lined for the offense named, and tho at first trivial case has" boon in state and federal courts over since, and is now ponding in tho United States su- premo court. Tho original sentence wasafllrmod by the supremo court of Tciinossoo. Then tins defense was undertaken by tho National Secular association, which employed Hon. Don M. Dickinson and carried the case to the United States circuit court on a writ of habeas corpus. Judge Hammond, in an elaborate opinion, ruled that statos had a right to make Sunday laws, and government hiid no tho states decisions. that tho federal right to review Tho case was thereupon appealed to tho supremo court of tho United States, and tho issue was awaited with intense interest by the Advontlsts and others opposed to Sabbath laws, as tho constitutionality of them had never boon passed on by tho court of highest resort. It is not unlikely tho Adventists will still push tho case' to a conclusion in spite of King's death, J. Phil. Miller has brought to the Donison lieviow office a radish measuring 32 inches around and weighing 16 pounds. It grow from seed sent in a letter from Germany. It is indeed a curiosity. It is stated that the state election will cost each county an average of about $3,000. It is estimated that tho -otal cost in tho state is about $200,000. This does not include any of the expen- ces of the campaign paid by candidates. An election puts by immense amount of money in circulation in a state. Tho Stato Veterinary society met in Des Moines last week. The officers for next year are: President, M. E. Johnson of Red Oak; vice-presidents, Drs. Edwards of Iowa City and Brown of Red Oak; secretary and treasurer, Dr Steward of Council Bluffs. Tho next annual session will be held at Marshalltown.
