Butlor has introduced a bill in congress to establish truer figures of American constitutional liberty, and another to amend the groat seal of the United States. The first provides that after July 4, next, the goddess of liberty shall bo represented by a young woman of full stature, with maturo development and proportions, wearing high lace boots, reaching midway between the ankle and Unco; hoso reaching to the thigh; short skirts, reaching downward to a point just above the knee; close fitting bodice and sleeves to the elbow, and a cap molded from a blue pansy bud; she to bear for arms at her left hip in place of a staff, and lightly supported over the right shoulder, a pon with a holder extended, and on the breast, instead of a shield, an American ballot in black and white. The other measure amends the law establishing the seal so as to provide, instead of the crest which appears above the head of the eagle, a glory breaking through a cloud of pansies, surrounding thirteen stars and forming a constellation argent on an azure field. A farmer living near Dos Moinos look a hog to town to trade for a house and lot, but not finding anyone who could pay the difference, took the hog ;iomo; ^^^^^ A Cnss county farmer sold four hogs one day last week, and with the pro- ioeds bought two horses. The C. & N. W. road is making extensive preparations for travel during the world's fair. It is said that three hundred new coaches have been ordered built, 60 baggago cars and 40 engines. They have double track to Cedar Rapids, so there is no possibility of a head- end collision, and rules will be adopted regarding the running of trains, which will make it an impossibility to have accidents by two trains coming together. Fred. Davis, a reporter for the Cedar Rapids Gazette, is in trouble. The Cherry sisters, five young ladies who run a farm near Marion, this state, gave a musical and dramatic entertainment in the Rapids lately, and Davis roasted them " for deserting farm work, for which they are peculiarly fitted, and presenting themselves for whatever missiles an audience might throw at them." He is up for criminal libel and will be tried March 8. Thn trial, it is said, will be more interesting than the musical performance. Five men were caught in Des Moines last Thursday stealing a corpse out of Woodlawn cemetery. One, Overton, is a professor in the Drake Medical college. A great sensation has followed the arrest. A farmer down near Livermore said last week: " My son, you can turn that $12 cow out in the lot and take the blanket off that $25 horse and put it on that $35 hog. When you get at your work in the morning you needn't mind currying the horse, but you might curry the hog." ^_^^^ Des Moines had a big time last Friday presenting a darkey there with a cork leg. All classes attended the meeting, Judge Given of the supreme court presiding, A mixed programme was rendered, and " Peg Leg Charlie" was fitted out with his leg and a new suit. A chattel mortgage was taken on the leg, to be foreclosed in case of bad behavior. The chief discussion arose over the question whether knocking chickens off the > it with it would work a forfeit. - " Monticello will have an exhibition at the world's fair that will attract a national reputation. Mrs. Harriet Chamberlain of Monticello, an aged lady, over 70 years old, has made a handsome silk quilt, every piece of which has been furnished by women of national reputation, or the wives of widely known men. In it are pieces of silk from the wives of 26 governors. A piece of the wedding dress of Lucy Hayes occupies a prominent position. Mrs. U. S. Grant furnished generous pieces of dresses worn on famous occasions. So did her daughter Nellie. Mrs. Benjamin Harrison, during her lifetime, was one of the first to respond to the request for silk for the .purpose. Mrs. John Sherman sent eight pieces of as many dresses, worn at different periods of her life. Mrs. Judge Gresham and Mrs. Higginbotham, the wife of the president of the Columbian exposition, are represented by pieces of the elegant dresses they wore at the dedication ball last October. Mrs. Stephen A. Doug'Uis, now the wife of Gen. Williams, not only made a donation herself, but very kindly sent a piece of one of the dresses worn by her grand aunt, Polly Madison, the handsomest and wpst entertaining mistress the white hope, ever had.

On March 7 tho Iowa revenue commission will meet to take up tho work of revising the revenue laws of tho slate. On the same day tho executive council meets lo dolermino tho railway assessment.

The LuVerne News says: Those who were present at the dedication of the Call Opera house at Algona last Tuesday evening speak very highly of the entertainment. The renditions of the state band were of the usual excellent character and the addresses of Hon. Lafe Young and Mayor Shcetz were both able efforts and drew forth rounds of applause. The audience was a very large one and severely taxed the seating capacity of the house. The opera house company is now well started on the road to success, of which the boys deserve a goodly measure for the public spirit they have manifested in aiding so laudable an enterprise. for llont—Improved Farm of 160 acres, five miles east of Algona.
