Tho DUH Moinoa WatorworkH company lum llled with the city cleric u notice of its Intention the ronlHt tho enforcement of tho now water ordinance on tho ground of the Illegality of tho council which pawned tho Biuno. Tho qtioHllon of Illegality IH based on tho alleged uncoiiHtltutlonallty of the law by which tho limits of tho olty wore extended a few years ago to talco In all tho suburban cities and by which the city govornment was roorganlxod. The question of tho Illegality of tho annex- utioti law has novor yot boon decided In tho courts. Prof. W. D. Jamlowon, for .'f'J yoitra n toachor In KoqkuU, 25 years as uupor- intondont of tho Kookuk public schools, and one of tho bont known educators In tho west, died Thursday morning. At Denlson Josiah WInans, a farmer of Milford township, died Monday morning from tho oiToots of a blow on the head received last Friday, while ho was in the timber chopping wood and which ia said to bo Uio result of a quarrel between himself and his brother, Clark Winans. A warrant, has boon issued for tho arrest of Clark Winans, who denies tho entire story. A coroner's inquest was hold, and as u ronult Clark Wlnans Is under arrest charged with tho murder. Tho tragedy is tho result of an old feud growing out of tho division of their father's estate. Before Josiah Winans died ho is said to havo made u statement implicating his brother. Thoro is ufso evldonoo of a struggle, and tho dead mnn'a skull hud boon fractured and several bones broken. John E. Young, a squatter on somo of tho disputed railway lands six miles south of PHmg-har, hanged himself in his barn last week. Tho coroner's jury returned a verdict showing that ho committed suicide. Young was about 40 years old, unmarried and had no relatives nearer than Now York. Ho has been despondent lately, worrying over tho probability of losing his land, and this is is tho only reason assigned. A humbug hits recently been advertising to send for $1 a sure preventive for hog cholera. Those who sent tho dollar received by roturn mail a printed slip advising them to Bell their hogs before tho cholera got Into their township. Many people havo wondered what tho govornment used stamps of tho do- nomination of $2, $3, $4 and $5 for. They are used /or prepaying registered mall packages to foreign countries. Tho rate is five cents per half ounce and tho limit is four pounds, and so a foreign package of tho largest size allowed by tho postal law, would require §4.00 worth of otarnpa to be placed on it. Henry county has had a narrow escape from gold fever. A farmer named Riddle, residing northwest of Salom, had occasion to fix a fence tho other day, and in digging a post hole he discovered about $600 in gold. It was in an old Iron box, however. The Riddle farm has been in tho family for many years, and the present owner, having good reason to believe that tho money had been burled there by his father, has sent $200 of it to each of two broth- era who live elsewhere. among tho democrats of this portion of tho stale that J.
