The Thoroughbred Stallion, tfc* . 8h« i* Mtditn* th« Baronet* Rothschild of Pfcrli, bot-n of «u well at wedded In that golden ruea. She 11 res in the heart of the gay capital In & big castle whose walled grounds are at least four times the size of Madison Square, says the New York Recorder. There Is a porter's lodge past which you drive to the castle between stretches of turf and trees and the rarest flowers. Widowed for years, Madame lives alone, save for her thirty- two servants. Vet she is never soil'' tary. Her cook Is cordon bleu, her dinner parties the despair of all Paris, to say nothing of greater entertainments. Madame knotys everybody worth knowing on three continents. All circles open to her. Royalty is not more exclusive or half so discriminating. Genius and good breeding combined make the surest open sesame to her favor. Though firm In the faith of her race, you may meet In hor salon all shades of beMef or disbelief. Yet, though so liberal in her associations, mndame cannot overlook everything. Hor only child, a daughter, wedded a Christian and remains an exile from hor mother's favor. Madame's jewels nro simply .fabulous In value— so much BO, in fact, as to put more royal collections quite out of countenance. She has ropes of pearls, seas and rivers of diamonds; sapphires a queen might sigh for In vain; pJgeon- blood rubles whoso worth would equip an army. One trusted man servant has charge of them all. Whenever madame wears thorn — wherever she goes, in fact — he IB always at hand. It was once suggested to her that perhaps she ran a risk; the temptation might one day be too great for him. She answered, In groat surprise: "Steal my jewels? Why should ho? He could only' turn them Into money, and already ho has all that money can buy — his own house, horse, carriage, servants — besides, he loves mo, as I lovo and trust him." Well may ho lovo hor— and many moro as well. For this great lady — stately, snowy-lmired .ijrande dame to her very finger tip's— is a manifest providence to. the poor and needy. Very much of her time and money tiro given to them, especially the sick poor, whom almost dally she visits in the hospitals. Once she found there a poor .being from the provinces dying of fever and deliriously craving the pear older of hor native village. The doctor said it could make no ultimate difference; death was a mutter of hours at best, but that pear cider was something not to be found in the city. They hud sent all about for it, but in vain. Madame looked at hpr a minute, then went back to her carriage and drove away. Six hours later she came back with just one quart of pear cider found in an auberge just outside the barriers. Sho had searched for it since she went away, and felt more than rewarded when the poor parched Invalid drank and died content. Will stand at Bancroft the coming season, and the standard bred stallion, Record 2:28, will stand at Algona. SERVICE FEE FOR EACH, By the Season, per mare, $25 These stallions will be for service till July 4 only, when they will be put in training for the fall races. THE LITTLE DARLING.

" "0, well, let the little darling have it, " replied tho fond mother. "But he's brandishing it about his head and chasing the other children around the yard." "He's crying, 'Ugh! Ugh! Whoop!' isn't hoP" "That's exactly what he's doing." "Yes; my pet likes to play Indian. Does he cry, 'Mo scalp paleface!' P" "Yes, yes; but don't you see - " "Oh, lot the little follow onjov himself. Ho takes such pleasure In sport," said tho fond mother. "But he'll hit one of tho others!" cries the indignant neighbor frantically. "Not intentionally," returned the fond mother. "He never moans to hurt anyone." "No, but he does sometimes, It's dangerous, madam — Its ous. " -rorliaps it is," said tho fond mother, thoughtfully. Then she wont to the .window and called out: "Willie, if you hit any of tho children with that hatchet I'll spank you and put you to bod. " "You need have no fears," she said to tho indignant neighbor, as she resumed her seat. "I hate to punish Willie, but I promise you that I will if ho hits one of tho children." And she cannot understand now why tho neighbors will not allow their children to play with Willie. —San Frijn- oisco Examiner. and JNO. A. WINKEL, Bancroft, Ipwa, Proprietor. A Clilettalii'v Oath, The Gaelic chieftain's oath before going into battle has been discovered in an Irish text of the second century and deciphered as follows: "The heavens are abovo us, the land below us, tho oooan around us—everything in a oirolo about us. If the heavens do not fall, ousting from their higji fortresses the stars like ruin on tho face of the earth, if shocks from within do not shatter the land itself, if tho ocean from its blue solitudes does not rise up over the brows of all living things, J, by victory in war, by combats and buttles, will bring back to the stable and the fold tho cattle and to the house and to their dwellings tho women that have been stolen by the onomy. ..*•* ALL PURCHASERS OF LUMBER SHOULD BEAR IN MIND THAT AT THE LOWEST PRICES IN NORTHERN IOWA, WILL ALWAYS BE FOUND AT THE LUMBER YARDS PAUL LUMB CO.
