Considerable surprise was occasioned by a wedding which took place at Anamosa last week. About three years ago an intelligent young man met an industrious young woman in the eastern part of the state. She fell in love with him, and he, taking advantage of her strong affection and with promises of marriage, accomplished the ruin of the young lady. Ho was appealed to to fill his original promises, but he stubbornly refused and a stern judge sent him to two years in the penitentiary. Ho finished his term and no sooner was he given his liberty than the girl ho had so cruelly wronged rushed into his arms and again implored her seducer to marry her. The gay prison-bird hastened with the girl to a minister, who made the ceremony as brief as possible and sent the happy couple on their way rejoicing with prayers and hopes that they would load a model life of love and happiness. _____ The Barnuui & Bailey show is already securing licenses for its appearance in Iowa next summer and autum. Sheriff Dunn, who was killed in the county seat war at Arkalon, Stevens county, Kansas, last week, was at one time city marshal of Bloomfleld. John W. Hood, president of the Iowa State bank of Osceola, Iowa, died at the Dowling hotel, 137 South Canal street, Chicago, under peculiar circumstances. Early Monday morning he registered at the hotel. At 8 o'clock in the morning, gas being smelled in the hallways, search was made and it was traced to Hood's room. When the door was burst open'he was found to be unconscious. After the $as was shut off and the room ventilated he revived somewhat, but asked to remain in bed and no more attention was paid to him. When the porter went to his room he was found to be dying. A doctor was summoned, but too late. The medical man stated that if he had been called earlier he could have undoubtedly saved Hoo'd's life. There is some mystery connected with the case. The hotel people do not think he tried to commit suicide, and there are others who express surprise at the delay in calling medical assistance. j_____ Four traveling men were seated facing one another on a train which pulled into Odebolt the other day, when one of them playfully pointed a revolver in v the face of another. The latter knocked up the weapon with his arm just as it was discharged. It was the old story. On Douglas street, in Sioux City, is an immense hill which has been freely used for coasting by the young people. Last week a toboggan filled with about 15 young people was coming down with great speed, and in order to avoid a team a sharp turn was made, throwing the young people against a telegraph pole. All were more or less hurt, and Miss Wright, a clerk in a railroad office, had her hip and ankle injured so bad she will probably bo a cripple for life. Ed. Vincent of Onawa was hurt internally, perhaps seriously. DANSON BROH., ATTORNEYS AT LAW. Loans and colloctlons. Over Frank Bros. S. S, SESSIONS, ATTORNEY AT LAW. Prompt collections.

IVTONEY TO LOAN— •i-Y-i- ON RAILROAD LANDS. Persons wanting to borrow money on rail road lands will do well to call at the Koasuth County Bank and bring their contracts. An important discovery was recently made in Buchanan county which promises to be worth ten times a gold mine. Prof. Calvin of the Iowa State university faculty, while on a visit to relatives in that county, made an examination of rocks in several sections and found in large quantities the peculiar limestone used so extensively in lithographic work, and which at present is obtained only in Germany, As the demand is so great and the present supply limited the find will undoubtedly prove a rich one. A bill will be introduced in the present legislature asking for a thorough geological survey of each county in the state. Should the bill pass Iowa will probably be shown to possess many undreamed of resources. purchase of MB land. The present indications are that the Winchester rifles recently scattered about among the settlers will not be used, and those who do not buy will give up their homes peaceably. Some who are too poor to buy talk of resistance, but a majority see the uselessness of fighting against fate. _______ The prosecution of the saloon men at Ottumwa promises to bo less effective than the temperance people hoped. County Clerk Sheehan has received from Gov. Boies .official notification that executive clemency had been extended to Catherine Wunch, whose fino of $300, imposed two weeks ugo for the illegal sale of intoxicants, is suspended. Catherine is an old offender and has been in jail two weeks. This time tho law enforcers feel that this same clemency will bo extended to other saloon- ists whoso conviction bus boon secured, The Carroll Herald says: The mOn- stor gun destined for the United States cruiser Monterey, passed through Carroll on its way to the Pacific last Thursday night and was visited by many of the people. It was carried on a specially made car from the Pennsylvania road, having 16 wheels ilnd being stoul- ly made. The gun is a 12-i.uch breech loader, weighs 101,800 pounds, is 80.8 feet long, will take 430 pounds of powder to lire its shot of 800 pounds weight. This shot will have a velocity of 1,941 feet per second or nearly twice as fast as sound. The officers are confident that with the. proper grade of powder this velocity can bo increased to 2,100 feet per second. Tho Monterey was built at San Francisco where she lies waiting this and other guns of her armament. There are two of these 12- inch guns, which are made at tho Washington armory, one being there awaiting transportation. There ,are two 10-inch guns and a considerable number of eight arid'six-inch ones, with rapid firing and' machine guns to sweep the enemy's decks. All these will be in San Francisco and add another argument to the request that Chile come down. The transportation contract calls fop the gun which went through to be delivered in San Francisco within two- weeks from its shipment. • Mr. Richman of Muscatine has opened tho ball on the liquor question by introducing his $500 license bill of the Twenty-third general assembly with a few changes, It provides that the city council of any town or city shall call an election upon the presentation of a petition signed by two-fifths of the voters of the town or city, at which election shall be submitted the question of whether or not the liquor licenses shall bo granted. This bill specifies that tho voters outside of the limits of the city in the county in which the town or city is situated, shall also have the privilege of voting upon the question. The other provisions in the bill are that the elections shall 'not be held oftener than every two years; that the fee shall be $500, and such additional amount as the city or county shall impose; that the licence holder shall give a bond of $5,000; that towns and cites have the right to regulate by ordinance the places in which liquor is sold; that permits can be given druggists to sell liquor for lawful purposes. Recent developments indicate that the Winoua & Southwestern road has bought, or is about to buy, the Mason City & Fort Dodge. At a meeting of the business men's association at Fort Dodge a communication was read from Secretary Simpson asking what inducements Fort Dodgo had to offer. Mr. Simpson visited the city last week, very quietly, and held a two days' consultation with John F. Buncombe. O. H. Manning, a Chicago railway attorney, is authority for the statement that the deal has already been made, and that the road will go through to Omaha by way of Jefferson, Coon Rapids, and Audubon. TPOR $25 YOU CAN BUY •P. A Sewin achie that re Get full informs If Carroll's population continues to increase at the present rate she will have 4,000 population when the state census is taken in 1895. Scores of river land settlers who were deprived of tho lust shadow of title to their homes by the recent United States supremo court decision are now making efforts to purchase their farms. The office of the agent of the Litoh- fields, who hold the legal title of the land, is besieged daily by settlers anxious to buy, The agent announces that a schedule of prices ranging from $20 to |25 an acre will be fixed, and the settlers given first chance to buy the land at those figures. Two years ago half that amount could have bought the land. Jacob Grouse, one of the most beUigei 1 - 0Rtip{ the settles, says; "J J'pJiofcetU* ifc; After the morning sermon the minister at Webster City gave 'out the "notices" and then announced the closing hymn to be sung. The congregation opened their hymn books. Seeing one of the deacons coming toward the pulpit he waited with open book. The deacon reminded him that he had forgotten to give notice of the ladies' meeting. The minister then stated that he had forgotten to give such notice, announced the number of the hymn again, and began to read it. The feelings of the congregation, not to say his own, may be imagined when** he read the first line of the hymn: " Lord, what a thoughtless wretch am I." Tho business of growing celery was begun in a small way at Orange City, Sioux county, four years ago, and has proven so satisfactory and profitable that it has grown i«to quite an industry.
