" Storm," the Fast Five-year-old Pacer, Among the Lot—The LOGS will Reach $100,000. Monday evening a terriblo fire occurred at Mason City. A special to the Des Moines News gives the details us follows: The stable containing Kirk Bros.' racing string was burned to the ground Monday evening. In the stables wore Storm, 2:08°!, John Brown, lull brother to Storm, Storm Bird, Red Clay, and sevorul other valuable horses. The fire broke out at 7:15 p. m., and in a few moments the whole building wns a sheet of flame. Every possible effort was made to rescue the terrified animals, but on account of the intense heat it was impossible to do anything. The cries of the tortured brutes were pitiful in the extreme, and soon the burning flosb. was almost nauseating. Part of the partition of the stall in which Storm was kept was torn away, and there before the eyes of the spectators the groat pacer struggled for life, but he soon succumbed to the fire and smoke. Storm was one of the most promising horses on the turf. His speed showed a steady increase from 2:23 as a two-year-old to 2:08£ as a four- year-old. He was expected to make a mark of at least 2:05 this season. An offer of $80,000 was refused but a few days ago. The entire string was valued at $100,000. Burr Kirk, the principal owner, is nearly crazy with grief over his loss and over Storm, to whom he was greatly attached. The cause of the fire is not known, There is universal gloom in Mason City over the terribly deslructivo lire, and the loss of six of the most valuable horses owned in Iowa. Nothing but their charred bodies remain. Storm, time 2:08j, the fastest 5-year-old pacing record of the world, his full brother, Brown John, by Brown Hal; Red Clay by Rod Wilkes, Storm Bird by Storm, Don Revo by King Revo and Brooklet by Brookmont, together with much valuable racing paraphernalia were burned. What Allerton is to Independence, Storm was oven more intensely to Mason City. Everybody was confident that this year the great stallion would easily break the world's pacing record and on account of this loss there is, especially among horsemen, doop regret. He was already entered for meetings at Independence, Minneapolis, Mason City, Sturgis, Mich., Grand Rapids, Mich., Lansing, Mich., Chicago, St, Joseph, Mo.,Sedalia, Mo., Torre Haute and Evansville, Ind., Lexington, Ky., and Nashville, Tenn. William Russell Allen, president of the American Trotting Register association, hud about completed arrangement for the purchase of Storm, paying $30,000, and was to be hero April 6 to close the deal. The entire loss will reach $75,000 at the lowest estimate, No insurance is carried on the horses. The principal losers are Kirk Bros., Nelson Grant, F. E. Hanfad and Bob Ellison, driver ol Storm. The origin of the fire is unknown but it is supposed to have caught from spontaneous combustion in the hay. MAKES A GOOD SHOWING. Marshal DaUey's Uoport of tho Cou- illtloii ol tho Water Works. The matter of chief importance before the city council Saturday evening was Marshal Duiley's report on the expenses receipts, etc., of the waterworks. Tho liguros will bo of interest to all. Ac cording to his showing we have addci the past season 252 feet of eight-mcl mains and 1,110 feet of four-inch mains to State street, 2,340 feet of four-incl mains to Thorington street, and 732 feet of four-inch nmius to Minnesott street, in all 4,440 feet. We have addoc also 11 hydrants, and now have 16 There are 37 service connections fo which the city is receiving revenue During tho past six months the receipt! from these have boeu 1302.90. During those six mouths thoco have beoi 4,392,000 gallons of water pumped, am the daily consumption has been 24,000 gallons. 132,000 pounds of coal have been used in this time. It takes 726 pounds a day and fuel costs $1.27 a day. Tho report recommends the completion of a circuit in the mains as soon as possible in order that there may bo no stagnant water. The council passed upon a lot of bills, but did not elect a marshal or city recorder as is customary at this meeting. As these officers hold subject to the will of tho board, Messrs. Dailey and Sessions act untill someone is chosen in their places, and unless a change is to be made no election will be needed. AT THE HOBMAL SCHOOL. Tho Closlnc Exorcises of tho Term 1'nclc tho liulldlng—Ail Excellent Programme, Tho closing exercises of the normal school drew a much larger audience Thursday evening than could get into the building, and many were turned away. The first part of the programme consisted of a debate and some literary exorcises, and the second part of an amusing farce entitled "The Public Worrier." The debate was over the old contest between Greece and Rome. E. E. Wheolock and Geo. Sarchett af- haracter drawing is distinct and con- istent throughout. The dialogue is ifttural and yet of an exquisite literary nish. All In all it is a delightful liece of work and lea'ds one to hope hat frotrt Mr. Barron will come dramatic composition of a much higher uality than has graced the American tage in this generation." THE ALQOHA DAMP MEETIM. To Be Held at llelmond, June 20— Big Preparations to be Made. A meeting of the committee to make rrangements for the Algona district amp meeting was held at Eagle Grove ast week. The Gazette reports it and ays: "It was decided that the camp meeting the coming summer will be icld the last week in June, beginning Monday, June 26. The beautiful grounds at Belmond, where such sue* essful meetings were held last year, will be the camping ground again this ear. The members of the committee iresent were: Revs. A. W. Luce of Bancroft, J. B. Kitbourne of Clarion, ~*. H. Eighmy of Corwith, J. R. Faus f Britt, J. C. Woodford of Belmond, nd Presiding Elder Black of this )lnce." FARM loans, 7 per ct., Skinner Bros.

Robert Barber of Crooksport, Pa., laims Dr. King's Now Discovery has done 1m more good than anything he ever used or lung trouble. Nothing like it. Try it. <Yoe trial bottles at L. A. Sheetz.' Large ottles 50c and one dollar. 5 firmed that Greece had done more for ivilization than Borne, while P. E. 'ellier and Chas. Taylor denied it. The judges, Mrs. Horton, L. F. Mayne, ind Harvey Ingham decided for the affirmative), although both aides argued ralinntly. These debates are one of the >est features of school training, and all he speakers showed a readiness and kill on the floor which spoke of excel- ent practice. A recitation by Mabel 3arlton, book review by Gertrude Wheelock, essay by Belie Peek, and declamation by Geo. Hamilton, all good, made up with music the first part. In the farce Irving Dodge, as Mr, Gibets, agreed to worry for anyone in distress for $5. He had calls from the uwyor, Alfred Chapln, tho editor, Edvin Taylor, the despairing lover, Geo. Hamilton, the physician, W. M. McLaughlin, tho editor's wife, Gail Gor- nun, and the lover's betrothed, Myrta Putsch, and between them all a very amusing muddle resulted. All took '.heir parts well, in fact excellently, and ihe applause was hearty. Tho normal school has bright prospects for the present term and is mak- 'ng a flattering success. GOAL UP AT ABMSTBQNG. A Paying Vein Is Said to Exlst-An Old KoHHutli Iloaldent Injured. In tho Esthorville Republican we Ind tho following items: While boring a well for C. B. Matthews in 3roen's addition Sullivan & Donovan struck a heavy vein of coal and experi- nood much difficulty in getting ih rough it. The coal has been examined and pronounced excellent in qual .ty, and shafts will soon bo put in to in' vostigato more thoroughly what is now believed to be a paying vein of coal, Grroat interest is manifested in this fortunate find and prices of property in Armstrong have already felt the effects. John Burt, while working on his new residence last Friday, met with quite a severe and painful accidont. The stag ing on which he was standing, not bo ing made of strong lumber, gave way and Mr. Burt fell with it a distance of fifteen feet, striking the frozen ground He received a severe injury to the lef foot, which will lay him up for some time.

Morrison, late of Bancroft, s proposed for a consulship in Japan by Congressman Springer of Illinois. John P. Irish didn't get to be com- misssioner of the general land office, lainoreaux of Wisconsin beat him. B. J. Hall, once congressman from Burlington, wanted his old place as commissioner of patents. John J. Seymour of Connecticut has it. One of Cleveland's first Iowa a ments is Chase, an Atlantic editor, as ppoint itor, as )ostmaster. Chase is a member of the state central committee. The Nevada Representative says, in view of tho proposed republican conference in Des Moines to settle on state politics: " It is one of tho unfortunate eatures of the present political situa- ,ion that a number of supposed or would-be leaders appear to regard iheraselves as charged with full responsibility for determining the policy of ihe party, and in fact for looking after most of the questions that are usually settled by a state convention. Such 'eaders mean well, but the trouble with .hem is that they do not know when to <eep still. A conference which is not authorized by the party, but which undertakes to settle things for the party, can make more trouble and occasion nore just and unjust complaint of boss- .sra and bargaining than can be ap- Deused in a whole campaign."
