Schaeffer of the state university at Iowa City has issued a circular concerning high school inspection and university examinations. In it he endorses the action and approves the recommendations of the committee of the school masters' round table of central Iowa, held on April 18. The committee was composed of Rogers of Marshalltown and Amos Hiatt of East Des Moines. The circular recommends that the high schools be brought closer together and that the latter be so classified and their courses so arranged that graduates can at once enter designated courses in the university. The Stuart News tells a story which will bear repeating: It is reported, it goes on to say, that Rev. L. B.. Tabor, who was a candidate for representative on the peoples' party ticket in the late campaign, sometimes allows his politics to crop out in his prayers. In his travels over the country he had occasion to stop over night at the house of a brother Methodist, who is a witty Irishman and also an ardent democrat. At the hour before retiring the reverend visitor was called upon to lead the family in prayer during which he prayed: " O, Lord, bring confusion and defeat to the republican and democratic parties of Iowa." "Lord forbid!" shouted the host. Nothing disconcerted the reverend gentleman continued: " And Lord bless the peoples' party, and give them wisdom and understanding." " Amen!" roared the genial son of Erin, " Lord, thou knowest they need both." Wf |Fndertaking and embalming will always receive careful and *• personal attention. Prices are reasonable.

Headquarters for the best SEWING MACHINES AND ORGANS, Miss Emma Van Vechten of Cedar Rapids is an expert wood carver. She has already done several pieces of work for which she received $500, and is now in Cincinnati, where she is completing her course of instruction. Fail-field is in great luck, says a press dispatch. Through the influence of Senator James F. Wilson, Andrew Carnegie has donated $30,000 for the erection of a public library building. Senator Wilson has donated a fine lot, and the building will be erected in the early spring. Although Iowa is known as the prairie state she has the largest saw mills in the world at Clinton, and now comes aDubuqueman claiming the largest wood pile in the world. It covers 26 square acres, 22 feet high, and contains 5,324,800 cords. Dr, Draper of New York said at the state teachers' meeting that the leading educators of the nation give a front rank to the school work done in Iowa. Robert Johnson, a traveling salesman from Dubuque, boarded a train at Elmira for New Hampton without a ticket and refused to pay ten cents extra fare. The conductor threw him off. Today he sued the Chicago, St, Paul & Kansas City railway for $1,500 damages. The traveling men will make it a test case,. He had applied for a ticket ten minutes before the train started, but the agent had closed his rack and refused to accommodate him. court, and in 1872 was nominated and elected to congress; was re-elected in in 1874, declined to be a candidate in 1876; was appointed by Gov. Gear to be a member of the Iowa railway commission upon the organization in 1878, and served six years; was appointed United States senator by Gov. Gear, in 1881, ta- succeed Samuel J. Kirkwood. who had resigned to enter the cabinet of Jas. A. Garlleld; was elected by the general assembly to serve the remainder of the Kirkwood term. Since his retirement from the senate Judge McDill has been practicing law at Creston, being the senior of the firm of McDill & Sullivan, a firm that has existed nearly a quarter of a century. Judge McDill is a man of education, has a tendency toward books and literature, is a Presbyterian in religion, and a man whose purposes and aims are honorable. His integrity is above question. i ' Few people know, says an exchange, the significance of the figures on playing cards. In olden times hearts represented " choirmen" or ecclesiastics, and the early cards.of that suit have a cape, which in form resembles a heart.. The spado was originally a pikehead, typifying the nobility of the soldiery. The artisans were represented by a stone tile, now known as a diamond. Farmers were represented by a trefoil or clover leaf, now known as a club. The four kings were originally David,, Alexander, Caasar and Charlemagne, representing the four great monarchies. The queens wore Argino, Judith, Esther and Pallas, representing birth,, fortitude, piety, and wisdom. The knaves were either knights or servants of knights. Many friends of the late Justice Miller at his old home have received copies of the appeal for the widow sent out from St. Paul. It is understood that its circulation by mail is confined to the eight states which composed the circuit of the dead jurist. Persons familiar with, the widow's affairs say that the death of her husband left her practically, penniless. The biennial report of Adjt.-Gen. Greene has been filed with the governor. It embraces reports of the condition of the various regiments and companies of the Iowa National guards, whose officers and men now number 2,466. There are 48 companies, divided into two brigades and three regiments each. Gen. Greene reports an increasing interest among the people • in guard matters and a gradual improvement in the work of officers and men. __ MOEE SWAMP LAND SQUABBLING. A Suit in May DR.

The Capital gives a sketch of Iowa's member of the inter-state commerce commission: Hon. James W. McDill, appointed inter-state commerce commissioner, lives at Creston, Union county, and is about 50 years old. As indicated by hi? political success he was born in Ohio about 60 yeare ago. Early ftt Carroll County That He of Interest, A suit has been begun in the Carroll district court by the American National Bank of Hartford, Conn., against Callanan & Savory to set aside the deed made by the American Emigrant company to Callanan & Savery on the ground that it was fraudulentand made to cheat creditors. The Herald reports the matter and says: George M. Bartholomew, formerly of Hartford and later of the " American Colony" in Canada, while treasurer of the company, made fraudulent notes for his own purpose to the amount of about $180,000, of which the bank discounted one for $10,000. When these fraudulent acts come to the knowledge of thecompany, its officers for the protection of its honest debts and of its depositors to whom it owed large sums, made a sale of its Iowa lands to Callanan & Savery, who in consideration of the conveyance agreed to and have protected these depositors and paid debts of the company. Later on the bank brought suit against the company in Iowa and' attached the lands of the company which Callanan & Savery had not then sold and proceeded to sell the lands they had attached and which form no part of those sold by' Callanan & Savery to residents of this county. Callanan & Savery thereupon brought suits against the sheriffs holding the executions to enjoin the sale, and the suit now pending 1 in this county is a consolidation of the actions so brought against the sheriffs of Kosauth 'and Monona counties and does ' * elude any of the Carroll county land. To this action the bank makes the claim that Callanan & Savery'sdeedisfraudu- lent and was made to defraud the creditors of the American Emigrant company. In 1888 a similar suit by Callanan & Savery against the sheriff of Kossuth county involving a part of the attached lands was tried in Sao county and a judgment rendered in favor of Callanan & Savery, holding their deed from the company valid, from which there was no appeal taken. This adjudication is set up as an answer to the charge of fraud and to a bystander would, seem to meet it fully, for if the bank on the trial in Sac county endeavored to show the alleged fraud and failed they should not again be allowed to try that charge. But fn any event there is nothing in this litigation affecting those who have purchased by warranty deed from Callanan & Savery, because such lands are not involved in this controversy and, they are not abundantly able $9. good their warrantees.
