THE NEWS OF THE WEEK The Iowa World's Fair commission ors hold n Hosslon at Dos Moines Into ly. The committee on pinna for the Iowa building and estimated expense? of the Iowa exhibit miule a lengthy re port. Nino designs were subinittet for the state building, at a cost not tt oxeood $75,000, but the award will not bo made until the legislature passes ai appropriation for the building. Mrs. Clark of Dos Moines, a member of the woman's boai-d, submitted nn outline o the exhibit proposed by the women of the state. She said the women wanted at least $120,000 of the state appropriation. The live stock men asked foi 850.000, and other interests pressed their claims with equal vigor. Seero tary Chase stated that the exhibition fever hud caught in Iowa, and the demand for a largo appropriation will be enforced by public sentiment. The state has available for an extraordinary appropriation in the next two years only $500,000. This will not be sulll- elont, and the fair commissioners will probably work for the restoration of the half-mill clause abolished by the last legislature. The Iowa State Sabbath School association has just issued a very valuable statistical report based upon facts, not estimates. The total number of Sun- diiy schools In tho slato is 4,674; two- thirds of those continue tho entire year. Tho total Sunday school enrollment is 855,461; about one-fourth are ulults, hence only 40fc per cent, of tho public school population of our state are in our Sunday schools. Fremont county has tho largest percent. Jasper, Dickinson, Pago, Mills, Harrison and Story stand in the order named, all with over 17 per cent of population in their Sunday schools. Anyone desiring this ro- jort can obtain it from tho state secretary, Mrs. Mattio M. Bailey, Shonan- doah, Iowa. There is said to bo 20,000,000 dogs in .ho United States. Ton dollars each is a ow-estimate por year for keeping, which makes tho enormous sum of $200, 000,000. annually. Taken as a whole -hey are a curso instead of a blessing to tho country, to say nothing of tho expense. Though tho kite-shaped track is but i couple of years old, 11 of tho 20 trot- tors that have beaten 2:14 made their astest records over kite-shaped tracks against time. Dr. W. F. Pock of Davenport, well md widely known as professor of surgery in tho medical department of tho Iowa State Universiay, is dead. Dr. .1. !. Shrader succeeds him as dean of tho school. Gov. Boies has issued a proclamation calling for aid for Russia. Ho has ap- >ointod a committee of one from each 3ongrossional district to moot at Dos koines, Doc. 20 to doviso moans, appoint sub-committcos, and make other irrangemonts for soliciting aid for tho lufTorors. Conspicuous In tho list of names to carry wheat and balm to the itarving barbarians of Siberia, appear ho names of Ex-govornor Larraboo, Ion. Joseph G. Hutchinson and Hon. H. C. Wheeler. A Sao county farmer sont loss than 15.00 to tho secretary of tho farmers' mutual insurance company of his county ho other day, and said it was tho flrst vssessmont ho had boon called on to pay In two years. He was carrying upwards of $1,000 insurance. Tho college management at Storm jako have secured tho services of Prof. i. W. Von Coolin, who will take charge if the normal and commercial department.

James Gittings, a retired farmer who ately moved to Belle Plaino, was re- ievod of $1,860 last week. He had just Irawn the money at Marongo and it is thought that ho was followed and •obbod. Tho thieves mado easy enhance in the house as it was not ockod. ^^^^^ Dickinson county with her 5,000 population, has 12 completed church build- ngs and another just started at Lake 'ark. _____ Sunday morning M. Nelson of tho Denmark neighborhood in Emmet county met with a serious and fatal ccidcnt. The old gentleman was drawing water from a well when he slipped, falling head foremost into the well and was drowned. He was about iO years of age. At Grand Island, Neb., the results of 36 of the more successful formers in beet raising were tabulated. They •aiaed from one to ten acr^s each—in all, 99 acres. The total product was 1,348 tons •from 11 tons per acre, to as high as 24 torn) in one instance. The average punt realized waa $40.07 par acre. The total product for tho 99 acres was $4,371.46. The average tons per acre was 13.6. Tho average total eost por acre of raising beets, and delivering them to the factory was $25.75, 12 tons being raised, tho value of which Is $42, leaving a net profit of $10.25 por acre. Under tho now scale of prices It Is hoped that the profit next year will bo about $22.25 per acre. Friday Michael Dwyer had a rather close call while working in the sticking pen in the packing house at Kmmots- burg. A chain connected with tho device for raising hogs became misplaced and, while attempting to replace it while the machinery was in motion, ho was caught In some manner by tho wheel and chain and thrown on to tho pulleys and shaftings. Had it not boon for a loose pulley, ho would certainly have been killed. As It was, one thumb was taken olT, one of hts oars was badly lacerated, and ho was sovoro- ,y bruised. A recently married Davenport fireman is bound to rise in tho world. His wife sent htm for some yeast, and when .ho grocoryman asked him how much no wanted ho thought a pound would Jo—lie could come again. The Newton Journal adds this: "Wo can duplicate /his In a story on a newly-married Mowton man, whoso wlfo told him to jot a little chipped dried beef for supper, and ho took homo throe pounds." Iowa Falls Is just raising tho money A> pay for last year's Fourth of July col- obration, Tho Brltt Tribune tells tho prize hog story: Goo. Fillonwarth shipped a hog .o Chicago that weighed 680 pounds ind was 10 foot and 10 Inches In length rom "tip to tip" and six foot botweon lind and foro logs. She was so long hat tho corn lost Us strength before It jot half tho length of her. Tho front lalf was very fat but tho hind quarters wore loan. This swine was brod and owned by P. D. Palmer. Ho expects ,o improve tho brood until ho raises jacon a mile long. Humboldt county is making a big ditch to drain Owl lake. S. H. Taft ias boon down seeing tho work and writes: "Having hoard that Owl lake and tho adjacent, sloughs woro being drained by Mr. Pearsons with a ditcher vorkod by steam-power, I mado a visit -o tho scone of operations to learn of ho merits of tho machine. I found it ibout half way between tho McLaury arm and tho lake, it having already excavated about ono mile of ditch. At this time it was cutting a channel six oot deep and J(t foot in width at tho surface of tho grouud. Tho ditch was wade deeper and wider as it approached ho lake until it became seven foot In loplh and 20 foot wide when entering he lake." Ono night last week, just as tho DU igonal train loft Waterloo, two well tressed young men asked a stock man 'oturning from Chicago to give thorn a 120 bill for four fives, and at tho same imo extended tho small bills. Ho did o, was thanked, and when tho gontlo- nanly strangers got off tho other side of ho rivor ho found ho had given $20 for our $1 bills. Tho latter woro good, lowovor. Geo. Liszt, a well-borer, 26 years of ,go, wont down into a two foot well 130 cot deep, on a farm in tho southern wrt of Boono county, While at the >ottom ho was overcome by dumps, and ho ropo with which ho was lot down )ocomlng detached all efforts to pull dm to tho surface woro unavailing. A oward of $50 was offered to anyone rotting him out. This was finally done by pumping fresh air into tho well when i man wont down. Tho dead man was o ho married on Christmas and tho would bo wifo is prostrated. State Veterinary Surgeon Stalker is cooping vigilant watch of the experiment of inoculation of hogs now being nade in Illinois by tho Billings process md that of the United Slates government. Tho professor says such experi- nonts should be mado with care and by ixports, for by promiscuous inoculation, hog cholera could easily be started all iver the state, and soon get beyond control. The annual report to the governor ias been printed, in which he reviews he various fatal epidemic diseases imong cattle during the year, and in which ho ascribes the cause to the drinking of polluted and stagnant sur- ace water, for tho reason that the disease was not found where the cattle lad access to pure water, He gives the lymptoms of the disease as closely re- lombling rabies, and might easily be mistaken for that disease. J HAVE 130 acres of good land /or rent near Algoua, and 200 acres near Sex* ton, all on favorable terms to the right parties. 0, L. Lund. WE soil Chase &Sanborn's celebrated, coffees. W. F, Carter.
