I suffer more with chills than I ever did in the north in even the coldest weather. The weather here is extremely changeable and the damp cold is very penetrating and needs to bo as carefully guarded against as the cold weather in Iowa." The Keoley Cure has done a good thing down at Dayton. A man lias taken it and then gone and hunted up his divorced wife and remarried her, and they are happy together. The Capital says Nebraska's new senator, Win. V. Allen,, was formerly an Iowa man hailing from West Union. He studied law with L. L. Ainsworth. Ho was a soldier in the Thirty-second Iowa infantry. Nine years ago ho went to Nebraska, locating at Madison, his present home. His conversion to the populist idea of politics occurred during the campaign of 1890, and since that time he has been an enthusiastic and constant advocate of that party's principles. In the fall of 1891 he was nominated by the populists for judge of the Ninth judicial district and was elected. Previous to going over to tho populists he was an enthusiastic republican. He is an enthusiastic Grand Ai-my man. The newly elected senator is a giant in stature, and it is said his mental calibre is consistent with his physical make up. He is said to lean in sympathy toward the republican party. There are eight ex-governors of Iowa living: Samuel J. Kirkwood, W. M. Stone, Samuel Merril, C. C. Carpenter, J. G. Nowbold. J. H. Gear, B. R. Sherman and Wm. Larrabee. George L. Dobson, formerly member of the Iowa legislature from Buona Vista county, and at present connected with an insurance company and living at Des Moines, is burdened with a government office which he has found it impossible to dispose of. He was appointed receiver of a land office in Oklahoma, but did not find it as profitable as he expected and came back to Des Moines. He resigned, but his resignation was never accepted, and the senate having refused to confirm the nomination of his successor, he has been ordered back to Oklahoma to remain until some democrat wants his job. ' The Bever will case at Cedar Rapids has lasted nearly six week. Nearly every prominent man and woman in that city has been called as a witness and the case has been fought bitterly. The chief closing 1 arguments are to be by Col. Clarke on one side and Judge Hubbard on the other. Maj. Ham, private secretary to Gov. Boies, denies the story sent out by Sioux City correspondents to the effect that the Fourth regiment will not attend the world's fair on account of lack of funds, the money having been used at the dedicatory exercises. Maj. Ham says the guard will go to Chicago as contemplated. Owing to the illness of Gen, Greene matters have not been expedited as hoped, and to this is due the complaint that some of the officers of the Fourth regiment have not been paid for their time in camp. This means that Company F will get there all right. In an interview Judge Shiras of Du- buquo eulogized Judge Jackson and said he hoped the senate would confirm his nomination. Judge Shiras was the most conspicuous republican President Harrison overlooked when he appointed Judge Sanborn of Minneapolis, democrat, to the circuit bench. Wm. McMillan of Atlantic City lays claim to the ownership of the largest ox in the world. His measurements are as follows: From head to rump, 12 feet 4 inches; from tip of nose to tip of tail, 17 feet 8 inches; girth, 11 feet one inch; across hips, 2 feet 9 inches; from brisket to top of shoulder, 4 feet 11 inches; circumference—front leg at body, 29 inches; of hind leg between knee and body, 2 feet 8 inches; height to top of shoulder, 6 feet four inches; weight, 3,890 pounds. This weight was taken last fall on his return from an exhibition tour to the county and state fairs in Iowa and Nebraka. Mr. McMillan estimates that his ox, named Jumbo, will now weigh at least 300 pounds more than when weighed last fall. Fort Dodge is reported to have enjoyed a great social sensation. Miss Eva Cumminge, a singer of note, yjfeJtJng friends there, She who has managed serio-comic representations, took the chorus in hand and her daughter was to sing Nancy to Miss Cummings' Martha. A disagreement arose between the prima donna and Mrs. Duncombo, arousing the vindictiveness of the latter lady, who dismissed the chorus, withdrew her daughter from the cast, and demanded that other singers should throw up their parts. She even went so far as to threaten to withdraw her patronage from a dry goods merchant if ho permitted his clerk to sing one of the leading roles. Tho threatened boycott caused the resignation of tho clerk from tho opera company. Miss Cummings, however, was not a woman to be downed. Tho chorus was reorganized, characters recast, and the opera successfully presented to a house crowded to the doors with people who represented tho best elements of tho city. Tho personal effects of the Andrews Opera company wore attached at Boonoville, Mo., tho other day by Jas. Murphy, their colored cook. It appears that the day before Murphy had a fight at Sedalia with Jas. Bradshaw, tho porter, and in the meleo Murphy was knocked oil the train while in motion. Ho managed to get on his feet and followed tho company on tho next train. The trouble was fixed up, however, and tho company's effects were released. A state organization has been effected, entitled the Iowa Art association, having for its object tho advancement of pictorial art and culture within the state. Tho officers are: President, D. N. Richardson, Davenport; corresponding secretary, C. E. Baldwin, Dos Moines; recording secretary, Miss Ora E. Miller, Cedar Rapids; treasurer, Miss Mary Hancock, Dubuque; vice president, Tenth congressional district, Miss Rose Train, Fort Dodge. The vice-presidents are expected obtain information concerning art work in the several counties in their district, and if posssble form a district organization to become a part of tho state organization. >n!& for adioptioa families a, four PROM THE COUNTY TOWNS.
