THE WEEK'S IOWA NEWS, The Iowa association for the protection of fish and game will meet at Clear Lake the 30th and 31st of May and 1st of June. The meeting will be one of interest to all and it is expected that over 200 delegates from different parts of the state will be in attendance. Sunday evening Foreman A. W. Griffin was instantly killed by being run over by the yard engine of the C. & N. W. railroad at Eagle Grove. The engine stood at the tank when Griffin, who was about 125yards below, signaled for the engine to come down the t rack. GriHln attempted to get on the footboard when the engine passed, and losing his balance, was caught under the engine and was dragged 05 yards, when the engine was stopped. His death must have been instantaneous. A coroner's jury rendered a verdict in accordance with the above statements, and exonerated the road from blame. Griffin loaves a wife and son. Judge Hyatt caused a sensation at Port Dodge by dismissing a grand juror and the clerk. They had been drinking in the saloons they were asked to indict. Judge Hyatt has the right kind of stuff in him. Iowa and Illinois wheelmen are greatly interested in a proposed relay bicycle race from Springfield to Dos Moines —a message to be carried from Governor Altgeld to Governor Boies. The distance between the two cities will be divided into ten-mile relays, > and two riders will be selected for each relay. The race will take place some time in May, the exact date not yet being arranged. _____^ The dissolution last week of the injunction granted years ago by Judge Brewer of the federal court, sitting at Leavenworth, restraining the county treasurers of Iowa from imposing and collecting taxes from the Pullman Car company, has settled that much mooted matter. The Pullman company has now given up the fight and is rapidly paying up all the back taxes and penalties. _______ Senator Cleveland is out for the democratic nomination for governor. Iowa is well represented at the national republican league meeting at Louisville, Ky., this week. The delegates at largo are: A. B. Cummins, Des Moines; J. P. Dolliver, Fort Dodge; Col. W. P. Hepburn, Clarinda, W. M. McFarland, Estherville; G. B. Pray, Webster Cty; Frank D. Jackson, Des Moines. The Register mentions the photograph of the editors of the Upper Des Moines Editorial association as one of the noticeable features of the exhibit of the Iowa building. The Independence Conservative says spring in Iowa is a myth, tradition, an ideality we read about in books of poetry, which we have faith in as one of the things unseen, but which, is never here a reality. Spring no spring on us. It belongs not to this climate. The Oskaloosa Herald says: C. W. Williams, the well-known horseman of Independence, has given mortgages to the amount of one hundred thousand dollars to the bank in that place. It is a big indebtedness, but is the way the fast horse business very often ends. The State Leader Is out in a lengthy attack on the insane asylum at Independence, Charges of brutal treatment, bad food, etc., etc., are freely made. The matter will be investigated. here on the north side by setting out some forest trees around it. If a number of our town people would go and do likewise it would improve the looks of their property and be a big benefit to the town, and at the present time the ground is in fine condition for planting trees of all kinds. We noticed Mr. Colby going home the other day with a new carriage, Undoubtedly the professor intends to take a little more comfort in traveling hereafter. Geo. A. Frink went to Algona Saturday returning Monday. G. S. McPherson has moved his family to Wesley. He intends to quit the farm and try and take things a little easier hereafter. We are glad to have Mr. McPherson locate hero. The revival meetings conducted by Rev. D. D. Benedict are still going on and will continue through this week. There is a wonderful interest manifested by everybody. There was a largo congregation out every night the past week, and the afternoon meetings are well attended. About 50 already have manifested a saving faith in Christ and many more are seeking that rest for their souls. Surely this isaponticostal time for Wesley, and in the words of the evangelist, "our town is getting turned right side up." Wo hope and pray that this good work will go on until every man, woman, and child in Wesley and vicinity becomes converted. A, S. White is improving the outward appearance of his livery barn by giving it a coat of paint. The fast mail trains that have recent ly been put on the Milwaukee road do not give the town of Wesley as good accommodation as they had before the time was changed as they do not stop. No. 8 is due hero at 5:55 p. m., and No. 7 going west is due at 5:25 a. in. If they would stop it would bo very convenient for our people to takothemorn- ing train at 5:25, go down to Algona and return in the evening at 6:55, giving them all day to attend to their business, Our school board informs us that they have secured the services of Prof. Barslou and Miss Jennie Pottibone to teach our schools for another year commencing next September. Prof. Barslou will receive $85 per month and Miss Pottibone $50. There will be but the two rooms. We congratulate the board on securing the services of two such good teachers for our schools. The board have decided that most of the time two teachers can handle the school nicely, while there may be part of the time during the winter term the work may be rather heavy for them, but an increase of $10 a month in their wages will be quite a stimulant to the teachers, and they will give us good schools without a doubt.

A son of J, T, Da vis of Fen ton is back after twenty-one years' absence from Kossuth. Ho likes it here, and like everybody else who leaves has wanted to come back. G. R. Woodworth returned to Chicago last Friday. It was hard for him to tear himself away from our Kossuth boom, but the world's fair city had superior attractions. Mr, and Mrs. J. O. Reaver came up from Knoxville Monday to see their old friends. Mrs. Reaver will visit several weeks with her parents, but he returns to keep an eye on that always excellent paper, the Express, Old-time acquaintances of Miss Mary Leggett will be interested in knowing that she is now in Italy, and expects to to go Egypt for further study.

A Good Resolution, The Sanborn school board adopted the following resolution on the resigna^ tion of Prof. Simpson: Resolved, By this board that it is with great regret that we accept Prof. Simpson's resignation and only do so for the reason that we do not believe it right for us to stand in the way of the professor's welfare and advancement.
