About two weeks ago some boys were playing around some freight cars just west of Osceola when the thought struck them that it would be fun to turn some of the cars loose and ride down the grade a few hundred yards. The first trip was made all right and they went back and started three more. These became unmanagable and dashed into the other cars, ditching four and causing a wreck that cost the Q. $2,000. The boys who did the mischief range in years from 9 to 11 and are not bad boys at all. The suit is a criminal suit and will probably result in, sending them to the reform school. A Carroll girl has advertised for a man suitable for matrimonial purposes and offers, in exchange for same, cash or its equivalent. Judge Hubbard is quoted as saying that " Boies has a face that looks like an affidavit and a song of Soloman combined." A novel writing contest came off at Des Moines last week between the students of Drake and Gallanan colleges. After a short literary and musical pro- gramme the contestants, six from each institution, passed up the aisles to the strains of a march played by Miss'Bell, and seated themselves in their respective positions upon the rostrum. After they had completed the required task, Prof. Thornburg of the Iowa Business college, who had been chosen judge of the contest, made a few remarks and announced his decision. Jack Edinger last week made a brutal assault on J. L. Krosen, a reporter on LeMars Sentinel, knocking him down and badly bruising and kicking him in the face. The trouble arose over an article written by Krosen, giving particulars of an attempt made by Edinger to enter a young lady's room at a hotel. He forced the door open and when she screamed he struck her in the face, and when the landlord came she fainted and her assailant left town. Sioux City's capitalist, Joseph Sampson, was an acquaintance of the rascally eon of Cyrus W. Field. He said last week: " I knew Edward M. Field when he was a young man. I was chopping wood in Westchester county, Jf. Y., with him some 20 years ago. He was going to college and merely chopped wood for exercise. What chances that young man had—family, wealth, prestige, every opportunity that a young man could have, and now ho lias not only wrecked his own hopes, but those of his honored and venerable fatherl" The football team of the university of Iowa mot the team from the university of Kansas at Kansas City Saturday afternoon. A very hotly contested game resulted in the score of 18 to 14 in favor of the the Iowa boys. They deserve special credit, as it is the first game the Kansas team has lost out of a long series of game. Sam Clark says Prof. T. S. Parvin made a delightful half-hour talk before the fifth Iowa district editorial meeting at Vinton about the early newspaper history of the state. July 4,1838, there wore three newspapers in Iowa. The Iowa Territorial Gazette at Burlington, then published and edited by James Clarke, afterwards governor, was in its second year. Mr. Clark brought the Gazette from Belmont, Wisconsin, and issued the first number in Burlington in July, 1837. The Dubuque Visitor, John King's paper, started in May, 1836, only lived a year. In 1838 the Dubuque News, published by Russell & Reeves, had taken its place in that field. The third of the papers was the Fort Madison Patriot, founded, edited, and published by James G. Edwards, afterwards founder of the Burlington Haweye. ______ The last issue of the Carroll Horald was printed by eleotrity. It says: " It is a perfect power, and were it available in the day time, when work is to bo done in a printing office, wo would want nothing better. It is to be hoped that the company can find sufficient patrons wanting power to run their dynamo in the daytime". ______^ Mrs. Addio Schormerhorn of Charles City started in Jan. 1, 1801, with 70 Plymouth Rock hens to see what they would pay for a year. On Dec. 1 she had sold $57.50 worth-of eggs and $30 worth of poultry, aggregating $87.50, and has a stock of 100. Here is one dollar per head income and $17.50 left for feed. ______ A man near Carson claims to have husked by weight, in the presence of disinterested witnesses, 154 bushels of corn in one day. Counting 120 oars to the bushel he must have husked 18,480 ears, or an average of 32 a minute, scarcely more than two seconds to the oar. The " peanut party" has been introduced in Harlan society circles. The nuts are concealed all over the houso in the most improbable hiding places. When all the guests are assembled each is given a paper bag and told to sail in and find the nuts, the one producing the largest amount at a given signal to receive a prize. T. S. Parvin, grand secretary of the grand lodge of Iowa, A. F. and A. M., is the oldest Mason, the oldest sohool teacher, the oldest editor in Iowa. His experience began back in the thirties, Theo. Latch, a poor young machinist employed In the shops of the Mason City & Fort Dodge railway at Fort Dodge, has found a rapid road to fortune. Latch invented a now rotary engine working on an entirely now prin- oiple and has patented his invention. He has refused an offer of $30,000 for his patents, and is negotiating with eastern capitalists to develop the invention. _______ An Oskaloosa judge had a young man before him on the 4th inst;, charged with breaking into a house. It was shown that his object was to thrash his brother-in-law, who was whipping his wife, the prisoner's sister. The judge solemnly sentenced the young man to serve three days in jail, " for three days beginning December 1st;" and it was several minutes before the prisoner realized how light the sentence was.
