BRONSON, Watches and Jewelry, C^OCJfS, SILVERWARE, SUver-platea ware, and all Wads of THE WEEK'S IOWA NEWS The Register says Iowa has the rec ognized standard horticultural authori ty of the earthy in Prof. J. L. Budd o the State Agriculturrl college, which i plainly evidenced by the continual call made upon him for information from al over the fruit growing world. If h could he spared from his college worl he would he in demand every day of til his years to attend horticultural meet ings and forestry conventions. He ha just concluded a tour of the four dis trict horticultural meetings of Iowa and will be at the state meeting thi month, and wo notice that ho is to talk on the "Behavior of the Russian Ap pies in 1892" at the Nebraska State Horticultural Society meeting on th llth of January. He has accoinplishei ancHs accomplishing a grand work foi Iowa, and for all who grow fruits niic" flowers in all countries, and ho has given the state's fruits greater reputation than any other man. Rev. Tyrrel, the Methodist pastoi who was expelled at Clarion last yeai for horso racing, has just eloped al Denver, Col., with his wife's sister A Denver despatch says: "His wife left him and came to Denver, but aftet a year's separation was reconciled to her husband, who followed her. They lived with his father-in-law and son. A mutual infatuation arose between himself and the young sister of his wife, which terminated in the elopement. The wife is distracted over her eeconc disgrace and the father's anger is unforgiving. The whereabouts of the pair is unknown, although officers are searching for them." A man calling himself an insurance agent, and claiming to represent the Phoenix of Brooklyn, is working Hanck county in a novel manner. If he cannot obtain a farmer's insurance in a egitimate way he represents that he .s looking for a good team of horses and ;he result is that he usually selects the jeet team the farmer has. Of course there is always a difference of opinion as to price but eventually the agent accepts the farmer's price with the provision that he will give him his insur ance. He then gives the farmer a check on the nearest hank for the price of the team' and takes his application 'or insurance with note for the premium and promises to send for the team n a day or so. The farmer is satisfied that he has made a good sale, allowing the discount resulting from the over nsurance and extra premium and policy fee charged, but lo and behold when the farmer presents the check he s told that the agent has no deposit, and upon looking for the agent he finds -hat he has left for greener pastures. An effort will be made to have this man Melvin indicted at the next session of the grand jury. A fellow named Lewis, who is in jail at Sioux City for attempting to blackmail Magdalens, says that he was >rompted to prosecute the scarlet women of the town by the Pontoon Bridge company. In all cases he told he women that if they would move to 3ovington, just across the river, he would drop the proceedings against them, his purpose being to increase the ide of travel on the bridge and inci- .entally the company's earnings. The next annual meeting of the Iowa ranch of the Keeley league will be leld at Port Dodge in January, 1894. ?he meeting this year was held at Des Moines, closing last week. There are eleven leagues in Iowa—at Washing- on, Dubuque, Burlington, Clinton, Des Moines, Marion, Eldon, Cherokee, Jresco, Thornburg, and Port Dodge, all if which were represented at the meet- ng, The sanitary report for the past ear showed the number of men treated n Iowa in the past year and previously, ( 500, number of lapses, less than 5 per ent. of the total number treated. Men n national soldiers' homes reformed by ieeley cure, 279; saved to the government by the cures, $5,826; number of apses, eight per cent, The secretary uggests legislation looking toward the ure of drunkenness by state institu- ions by crystalizing the system by tatute. The organization is known as he Keeley league, with a membership f over 60,000, with headquarters at 'ittsburg, Penn. It is composed of men who have been cured by the Eeeloy cure treatment and such others s will assist them in reclaiming their irethven from the terrible curse of Icoholio stimulants. Hon. L. S. Coffin was present at the meeting last week nd delivered an address stating that ,000 railroad men in Iowa are now wearing the temperance white button. The Des Moines street railroad will iftye an interesting case before the ailrpad commissioners sometime next month, on % complaint against the 0. ,& W. railroad fc>r ovep purges |QP witching, for '-*—•" cars for the street road company with loads of coal from the mines to the company's power house, charging therefor $3 a car. This appears to be the customary price for this sort of service among all railroads. It is probable that the question of the actual cost of switching will come up during the progress of the case, which will be the main feature. The railroad commissioners have found out pretty much everything about railroading except that. State Auditor Lyons received an unique Christmas present from Y. Q. S. Pang, a native of China who was educated at Dralco university. He re- mombcred his old friend with some dainty silk handkerchiefs and mufflers all the way from the flowery kingdom. When Mr. Pang loft Iowa for China Capt. Lyons and Gov. Sherman gavo him letters to the state department to secure the admission to this country of the wife ho intended to marry in his native land. When ho brought her back she'was detained at the custom house for identification. Again tho captain's good offices wore in demand to establish tho fact that she was Mr. Pang's wife. Pang, by tho way, is tho Chinaman who was granted naturalization papers by Judge Given. Finally all legal difficulties wore removed and the newly wedded couple settled down in Detroit, where they now reside. At the two northern horticultural meetings only high praise was given of the Shaffer Colossal raspberry. Mr. Elinor Reeves of Waverly re ported continued large crops of this variety, and that he had marketed it each year at an advanced price. The past season he had sold his large crop of Shaffer at 15 cents a box, which was twice as much as he could get for Gregg. A number of members gave an equally favorable report of the behavior of tho Shaffer. The Older raspberry had words of praise from all northern growers who had planted it in considerable numbers. That it is the hardiest and the best of the true black caps is now generally conceded. Telegrams in yesterday's dailies bring news of the downfall of Sol. R. lute of Montezuma. Twelve days ago tie was one of the most brilliant young men in the state university. Partnership with whiskey has, as usual, furnished a Now Year's warning. The dispatches read: "Mrs. Nellie Brundage, wife of Chns. M. Brundage, a broker, committed suicide in the Grand View hotel yesterday morning by taking a dose of laudanum. Solomon R. lute, who formerly boarded with Mrs. Brundage, arrived ten days ago from Telluride, Col., and since arriving he and Mrs. Brundage have been living together. Both have been -drinking heavily and last Sunday quarreled. The woman went out and when she returned said she had taken a dose of poison, Clute, who is a lawyer and has a wife living at Brooklyn, Iowa, did not believe the woman. At 3 o'clock yesterday morning ho awoke and found ler unconscious beside him. She died soon after, Clute went down town and also took a dose of laudanum. His courage soon failed him, however, arid he went into a saloon and took a dose of mustard and salt to rleieve his stomach of poison, When he returned to the woman's room he was arrested. A etter found on Clute's person read as bllows: 'My name is S. R. Clute. Send notice of death to George Clute, tfontezuma, Iowa. See C. E. Patterson, Olimpic block. I love the woman. Save the letters and send to my father.'" Mr. Brundage recently suspected his wife of infidelity and left her. At Geo. E. Marble's, Burt.
