This makes the fifth medal in succession the school has received. Prof. Doran and Mr. Chapman were met at the train by tho high school scholars and teachers, two bands, and the school militia, and conveyed in a carriage to Miss Maryln's, where an informal reception was hold. Monticello speakers have now won four first and three second medals. It is said that a meteorite has lately fallen in f Kansas striking the John Brown monument, which contains an element having four times the specific gravity of gold. When a fragment was volatilized in tho electric arc, it gave tho same spectrum lines which are found in tho solar spectrum and have been attributed to a conjectural element, helium. If this unknown metal proves to bo helium, it is the only known specimen on earth, and the Os- sawattomie aerolite will be tho most valuable ever know. A Sheldon, Iowa, baby, which was named in honor of Ruth Cleveland, has received a ¥50 check from Ruth's parents. If this becomes generally known the president will have to appoint a cashier to attend to paying off namesakes. ' Hon. J. P. Dolliver has an article in tho Now York Independent of April 20 on "Bribery." The article satirizes the present position of Grover Cleveland in relation to office seekers. Readers of this paper will remember the Cherry Sisters who deserted the farm and gave an entertainment in the Cedar Rapids opera house, which the Gazette roasted so unmercifully that the poor country girls threatened to bring suit for libel. A few weeks later they repeated the performance to a house jammed with men and a jury of citizens witnessed the entertainment, by arrangement with tho Gazette and the Sisters, to determine whether they had been libeled. The girls have about as much talent for the stage as have the • cows which they quit milking, and their entertainment was unparalled in the history of amusements. The Sisters, it seems, have determined to make a tour and wrote Manager Hughes of the Keokuk opera house, for a date. Mr. Hughes addressed a reply to the "Manager Cherry Sisters, Marion, Iowa.," and the letter came back endorsed by the postal clerk, " Returned to writer. They are unmanageable." The state board of health has issued a circular stating that every incorporated town in tho state will be visited by a representative of that board, and if he finds that streets and alleys have not been cleaned up is empowered to hire some one to do it. C. B. Erwin of Berlin, Conn., has left $90,000 to Grinnell college by his will. • LeMars is to have an editorial gathering May 25-26. Hon. D. N. Richardson is to speak on the first evening, and Hon. Ignatius Donnelly on the second. A championship polo game is being arranged for entertainment, and the city promises to make the occasion enjoyable for all who attend. E. D. Chassell is the moving spirit, and that means that success will attend the meeting. THE OOTJEIER FAVOES ELECTIONS. It IB Suld to Endorse That Method of Selecting a Postmaster In Algoua— The Idea Gaining In Popularity. There are always pleasant surprises attending an excursion abroad, and very often pleasant ones on returning home. Among the latter is the following announcement in the Whittemore Champion: "The Algona Courier and THE UPX^EB DBS MOINES are in favor of settling the postofflce contest by special election." We had hardly hoped that two weeks would have revolutionized the attitude of the Courier, but if, as the Champion asserts, they have, we welcome it to the cause of populav elections. With its able assistance we have no doubt that we shall be able to aid materially in bringing the postofflce succession to a satisfactory settlement. We are the more interested in an election now, inasmuch as the reports indicate that Bro. Ryan is having a rough road to public patronage. Here is the latest from Fort Dodge: "As appointments to postofflces begin to be made in this district the battle grows fiercer. Defeated Candidate Ryan and Candidate Breen of this city have just returned from Washington, where they had been to try and bulldoze the appointments in this district. The fact that the four men yet appointed are those recommended by J. F. Duncombe, makes them very gloomy, and they have nothing to say as to the outlook, It is known thftt while in Washington Ryan, used every mea ns he had |Q get contrgl of th,e, RppQtoents iu " OFffGB OVBtt JA8.
