THE NEWS OF THE WEEK, James Boono, a farmer and stock raiser of Henderson, Iowa, owns a large cow which ho expects will weigh 3,000 pounds before the year ends. Joseph Robinson, a neighbor, has a steer that weighs about 4,000 pounds, and if the animals live they will likely be placed on exhibition at the world's fail- in 1893 as a showing of what the Iowa stock raisers can do in the way of producing immense cattle. The Chicago & Northwestern railway is to be equipped with a system of electric signals, the most complete in the country. The signals work automatically and are so arranged that they can never fail to indicate danger. They will be at from half a mile to a mile and a half apart. The wire connecting them will bo boxed and placed between the tracks under ground. Other western roads, it is predicted, will soon follow. J. S. Taylor & Son of West Liberty, Iowa, marketed at Chicago last week four decks of Mexican yearling sheep, 82 pounds, which sold at $-5.25. Mr. Taylor says the margin of profit is considerably better than a year ago, as the prices are higher and the cost of feed less. They have 1,200 more sheep on feed. Hon. S. H. M. Byors of Oskaloosa, now United States consul at Zurich, Swit/.erhuid, is making an cit'ort to increase "The Aldrich Collection," in the Iowa state library. In furtherance of this design ho has printed a circular, describing the collection, and suggesting to the Swiss people that they make contributions of the autograph letters and portraits of their eminent countrymen. Mrs. Miller of the state library is in recept of the following from the professor of English literature in Dublin university: Dear Madam: I received, some time ago, a copy of the bi-ennial report of the Iowa state library of this year. If I owe it to you pray accept my best thanks for what is very interesting to me as a trustee of the National Library of Ireland. Your list of Iowa authors makes me feel how much is going on in American literature, which lies very imperfectly within our Icon over hero. Faithfully yours, EDWARD DOWDEN. Hamburg in the southwestern part of the state has shipped 34,615 barrels of apples, Glenwood 26,093. The whole " blue grass" section has shipped 249,758 barrels, or 1,6(55 car loads. The London Times is buying Hoe printing presses in New York. Rev. Florence Kollock, who preached in Algona some years ago, has resigned her work in Chicago and will go to Europe for a year of study and travel. Representative Kasa of Estherville has introduced a bill to prevent cousins from marrying. Bro. Conaway of the Brooklyn Chronicle says: It has been referred to the committee on retrenchment and reform. Should have been referred to the stock breeders' association, which encourages the breeding of relatives. If the standard of horses and cattle is raised by intermarriage, why wouldn't the standard of citizens of future generations be improved by following the rules adopted by stockmen. Every man who has a good horse points with pride to two or more crosses with Hambletonian 10. In the language of our horse editor, "If you've got a good thing, why not keep it," Ben Butler's much-expected book is published. Sibley talks of organizing a military company to iill the place made vacant by the mustering out of-Company G of LeMars. Fort Dodge has already raised a company for the same purpose, and Spencer is said to desire the place. The discussion of the Schmidt local option bill will begin next week in the senate. He will call a meeting of the committee on supression of intemperance in a few days, and after adopting the amendments to his bill, as voted by the democratic caucus, will report the bill to the senate probably Thursday of this week with a recommendation that it pass. Then Senator Schmidt will move that it be made a special order for some day next week, probably Thursday. It requires a majority vote to make'a bill a special, but it is not believed the republicans will resist it. When it is once so made, according to the new rules adopted by the senate, no other special order can bo set until it is disposed of, and so it is probable that the discussion of the Schmidt bill in the senate will begin about Feb. 11. In the house, however, the majority of the committee on the suppression of intemperance is republican, and though it has the Schmidt bill before it, it having been intrpduced in tbttt body by Mr. Richinan, it is probable that no discus- sion will be reached on the 'floor for some time, and possibly not until the bill comes from that body, in case it passes that body. The discussion of the measure in the senate may last a couple of weeks, as some of the republican senators have announced their purpose to offer amendments at every point. ___ Preparations are already being made on an elaborate scale for the forthcoming encampment of the Iowa department of the G. A. R., which is to be held in Ottumwa May 10, 11, and 12. An elaborate programme is being prepared, all the public halls in the city are being retained, and a large amount of correspondence is being carried on for the purpose of assuring the prsenco of distinguished soldiers from other parts of the union. The mayor has called a public mooting'of citizens to take appropriate action to the end that the reunion of the veterans at the coal palace city may bo the greatest in the history of the organization.
