A close examination of the world's fair souvenir half dollar coins with a microscope or small magnifying glass reveals on the collar surrounding the imprint of the head of Christophet Columbus a tiny, but-well defined letter "B." After the letter "B" has once been discovered by tho aid of a microscope it can be plainly .seen with the naked eye. The " B" is the initial of the last name of the man who made the design for tho coin, which, by the way, is Barber. It is an old English custom to place the designer's initial on coins, aiid several pieces of United States coin are BO marked. Tho Cedar Rapids Republican oxelahns: " Poor, abused, unprofitable lowal Now there is Senator Kamrar. He sold his farm west of Webster City to Win. Bell of Livingston county, 111., possession to be given next spring. Tho farm consists of 240 acres and is one of the very best in Hamilton county. And yet the consideration was only $14,500, or a little over $60 per acre, cash down 1" A novel and felicitious plan for choosing partners was recently practiced at a Calais whist party, says an exchange. Family albums had been ransacked and the photographs of all the gentlemen, at ages ranging from six months to 20 years, in dresses, in kilts, and in the "first pair," were gathered together in a hat, from which the ladies drew. Some men had retained their baby looks long enough to be easily recognized, some were complete enigmas, while the others were more or less plain in spite of additional hair on lips and cheeks and " subtractional hair" on heads. The gentlemen wore not in tho secret originally, and their amazement when the pictures wore let out of the bag was one of the funniest parts of the fun. As tho result of an explosion of a gasoline stove Thursday at Mason City Mrs. J. Wheeler was so badly burned that her physicians report that she cannot live. At the time of the explosion she was holding a gasoline can in ler hand while endeavoring to light the stove. In addition to her injuries ;he dwelling was burned to the ground. Acting Adjutant General Mclver ms received a number of communica- ions from the Illinois guardsmen look- .ng toward the encampment of the entire national guard from Iowa at Chica- fo between May 1 and Oct. 30, during which dates the fair will be open. Al- ;hough no official action has been taken )y him it is understood that tho Iowa roops can be sent there for a two weeks' camp and not exhaust the state appropriation, if tho officers and men will sign no per diem pay rolls. The [owa National Guard association will meet at Cedar Rapids today and the subject will probably be considered. The National Butter and Cheesemak- ers' association convenes at Dubuque, Iowa, Feb. 7-10, 1893. About $1,500 in cash will be distributed among makers of fine butter and cheese. " Clover Culture" is the title of a neat little volume written and published by Henry Wallace of Des Moines. In about 160 pages he tells the farmers all about clovers and imparts a great deal of useful informa- ;ion on a subject that is of the greatest .mportance—the fertilization of the soil. Mr. Wallace says in his preface ;hat he has gathered his facts from books, which are for the most part inaccessible to the busy fai'mer, and from nis own observations and experiments, first as a practical farmer, and second, as a traveler, both in this country and abroad. In 1887 there were 60 state banks in Iowa. There are now 164. There were 36 savings banks in 1887, now .here are 123. Col. R. H. Moore, editor of the Ot- ;umwa Daily Democrat, came near be- ,ng asphyxiated at the Savery hotel last week. Gas was smelled in the hallway of the hotel and Col. Moore's room .was opened. The colonel was found in an unconscious condition. The gas was turned on and escaping in his room, How. it came to be turned on is yet a mystery. The colonel is now relieved to out of danger. State Auditor Lyons' report shows low insurance business has grown in [owa.

Just as the train started a steam heating apparatus ex* ploded, filling tho car with intensely hot steam, severely burning Senator Schmidt, Col. French and Fred Lischer, who were obliged to remain at .home on account of their injuries. The other passengers kicked out the windows and the steam escaped before they were burned. Among those on board were Hon. J. J. Richardson, W. H. Gearhouse, George E. Hubble, Geo. Metzogar and Frank A. Smith. The Cedar Rapids Republican has a good cold weather item as follows: It remained for J. N. Kramer <fe Son to develop this particular qualification of the corn state. "With the compliments of tho season," they laid on our desk two well-developed, finely-flavored, ripe bananas. They raised them on Iowa soil—at Marion. These gentleman have succeeded in producing a fruit that has its home on the southern half of tho continent. It isn't expected, however, by the most sanguine that banana raising will supplant tho corn and hog industries.

Cumberland, the Shelby county murderer, is to be hanged at Harlan on February 10, for the murder of a farmer and his son, the purpose being robbery. Samuel Peco t Muchikinock miner, who killed a fellow workman last September, will pay the penalty with his life soon. The report of the soldiers' home at Marshalltown for December shows an iverage of 372 inmates. The Iowa presidential electors met at Des Moines on Monday and cast their votes for Harrison and Reid. J. H. McConloguo of Mason City wants the consulship at Chile, in Patrick Egan's place. LeMars has at last, through united ocal liberality, completed one of the finest college buildings in the state. It is built of pressed brick and cut stone. [t is three stories in height besides the 3asement and has a large tower on one corner five stories in height. It is supplied with city water, fire protection, electric lights and electric bolls and is leated with hot water. The building :iasa capacity sufficient for 400 students. _ Abraham IvlucoJn, When leaving his home at Springfield, 111., to be inaugurated president of tho United States, made a farewell address to his old friends and neighbors in which he said, Neighbors, give your boys a chauce." These words come with as much force today »s they did thirty years ago. How give them this chance? Up in the north- " west is a great empire waiting for young ' and sturdy fellows to come and develop It end " grow up with tho country." All over ;his broad land are the young fellows, the joys that Lincoln referred to, seeking to better their condition and get on in life. 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 ;he Red River valley of North Dakota the finest of prairie lands fitted for wheat and grain, or as well for diversified farming. In western North Dakota and Montana are stock ranges limitless in extent, clothed with the most nutritious of grasses. It a fruit farming region is wanted there is the whole state of Washington to select from. As for scenic delights the Northern Pacific railroad passes through a country unparalleled. In crossing the Rocky, Bitter Roots, and Cascade mountains the greatest Mountain scenery to bo seen Jn the United States from the car windows is found. The wonderful bad lands, wonderful in graceful Form and glowing color, are a poem. Lakes Pend d' Oroille and Ceeur a' Alene are alone worthy of a trans-continental trip, while they are the fisherman's untima ;hule, 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 *;he far-famed Yellowstone park. To reach and see all this the Northern Pacific railroad furnishes trains and service of unsurpassed excellence. The most approved and comfortable palace sleeping cars; the best dining cars that can be made: Pullman tourist oars good for both first an4 second-class passengers; easy riding day coaches, with baggage, express, and postal cars, all drawn by powerful Baldwin locomotives, make a train fit for royalty itself. Those seeking for uevr homes should take .his train and go and spy out the land. To ^a-prepared write to Cius. S. FB», 6. P. " P,fV., St. Paul, Minn. WE have a big line of warm, wv ined shoes. Geo.
