A Washington paper fathers this story: A traveler saw an Iowa farmer standing at the foot of a corn stalk and looking skyward and asked him how tall the stalk was. The farmer answered that he did not know, that he had sent one of his boys up a short time before to measure it, and that the stalk was growing faster than he could climb down. DR. GEO.

The portraits of Judge Wright and Judge Dillon have lately been added to the supremo court room at Des Moinea. Doble says Axtel will trot in 2:07 next year. One of the speakers at the Waterloo Swine Breeders' convention recently, told how to ship steers and not have them shrink. He says theydnust not be salted as salt will scour them. Give them only half rations of timothy hay for two or three days before shipping; then on the morning of shipment give them all the corn they will eat and no hay, no salt, no water. The corn will then "stay by" them. ' A most important Masonic gathering will be held in Waterloo about the second week in January. At that time the Shriners. -will make a pilgrimage to that place and a large number of candidates will be admitted to the shrine. These gatherings of the Shrin- ers are noted events wherever held. There are about 600 Shriners in Iowa. It has been decreed that wines and liquors may be sold in restaurants on the World's Fair grounds. The Brooklyn Chronicle says that down at Oxford, Johnson county, the citizens are badly broken up over a disturbance that has attracted the attention of the world. The mayor of that beautiful little village is very fond of draw poker, and has boon in the habit of spending- his evenings with the boys in the social game. Ho would return late at night with his pockets filled with matches, buttons and chips and explain to his wife that important city business kept him away from the peace and quiet of his own home. She stood the waywardness of her husband until virtue ceased to bo patience. She made inquiry at the city hall one night about a week ago and found that his honor was not present. Overhearing a conversation, she was led to believe that her lord and muster was indulging- in amusements unbecoming an officer of the law and dispenser of public patronage. She followed the load and through a crack in an upper story window discovered seated at a table, with dollars stacked a foot high, the man she was wed to and who had promised to love, obey, and cherish. Gathering her apron full of rocks and bricks she commenced a vigorous firing at the windows, breaking the glass and destroying the peace and quietness of the game. It was her turn to ante and before the chips were covered ordered .up the whole company. Out they went and when she called them they refused to show their hands. The question now occurs on the action of the mayor in the case. Will he fine himself for gambling or will he fine his wife for disturbing the peace. The matter will attract world-wide attention and promises to down the Jones county calf case. A coin collector advises the people to look over their change in the future, and keep all pennies bearing the date of 1887; that they are becoming very scarce and will doubtless command a premium in the near future. The bachelors among the Iowa senators are Dodge, Cleveland, Jamison, Finn, Oleson, Schmidt and Shields. State Bank of Bancroft F. L.

A note was received from Mr. Arnold declining the invitation and regretting his inability to attend. The First National and Merchants' National banks of Ft. Dodge have consolidated, capital $200,000. At a meeting of the committee appointed by Gov. Boies to confer with regard to relief for Bussia, PI. C. Wheeler, the late republican candidate for governor, was made chairman, and B. F. Tillinghast of Davenport, secretary. Various plans were discussed, and committees to work up interest in the matter were appointed in various portions of the state. It is expected that Iowa's contribution will take the shape of a cargo of corn. Dr. Bawson, a pioneer of Des Moines, died at the residence of his son last week, aged 99 years. A remarkable coincidence was a telegram from Ohio announcing the death of his brother, aged 94. They come of a distinguished line of ancestors. Seventy-eight boys in the Atlantic high school recently signed a pledge to not use intoxicating liquors of any kind, cigars, tobacco, or cigarettes for one year. Edward Emerson, a leading citizen of Huinboldt and once county recorder, shot himself a week ago Saturday afternoon, the ball passing through his body just above the heart. He had been suffering great pain for several weeks from inflammation of the postate gland, which made life so great a burden that he threw it off. He leaves a wife and two children. The report of the Iowa railway commission shows that two great Iowa railway companies, the C, B. & Q. and the Bock Island did not furnish the information called for by law, and that many other companies are similarly delinquent. Ledyard's Organizations. Bancroft Begister: Quite a number of the I. O. G. T. people of Bancroft went to Ledyard last week and organized a lodge of that order. Lodge Deputy Benfrow will go up some time in the near future and install the officers. Our northern neighbor has also organized a Methodist Episcopal church, and does not intend to be behind the times in any good work. An Interesting Case. Wesley Beporter: At the Hancock county fair two years ago a runaway horse ran over a boy named Casey, injuring him so that he died soon after. The boy's father sued the fair association for $5,000 damages, and the case come up in the district court at Garner last Friday. It was decided that there was no cause for action as the society was not liable. Winter Excursions South.
