Last Wednesday night about 7 o'clock a murder was committed at Dows, a small town on the Burlington road. It seems that a drayman and his wife had parted. The husband went to the hotel to board and the woman remained in the family residence. At tho time above stated a harness maker was seen going to this house and in a short time afterwards the report of a revolver was heard by the neighbors, who immediately went to tho place. The doors of the house were found locked. Ono of tho doors was forced open and the man was found on the kitohon floor with a bullet hole through his head. No one else could be found in the building at the time. The supposition is that the drayman saw the harness maker go to the house, followed him, and then killed him. Ho appeared in tho crowd as cool and unconcerned as if nothing had happened. In a short time suspicion arose against him. He was arrested but was let go again. Several hours afterwards the people ordered him rearrested but he could not be found by the officers. We glean from the Emmetsburg Democrat. A deputy United States marshal dropped down on Chris. Westphal last Wednesday, at Charles City, and took him to Dubuque on a charge of selling intoxicating liquors without a government license. It is generally admitted that prohibition pretty nearly prohibits in Charles City. About a year ago J. W. Hart was employed as telegraph operator at Montezuma. While there he raised an express money order from $8.60 to $48.50. He then skipped the country, and the company's detectives followed him around until they caused his arrest at Mt. V.ernon Wednesday. He was taken to Montezuma, where he will await trial. • The Telegraph and the Times of Dubuque about three weeks ago published statements in regard to a Dubuque editor being one of those who personated Senators Dodge and Finn on the night of the raid in the Whltechapel district at Des Moines. .The. editor referred to was B.W. Blanchurd. Some days after ho published a denial and threatened criminal and civil libel suits. He went before tho grand jury seeking i dictments against the proprietors of the Telegraph and Times, and city editor of the Telegraph. The grand jury re ported today, refusing to find indictments. Blanchard has now started civil suits. ^^__^^ Cudar Rapids Republican: Illinois farmers are coming over to Iowa by the train loads. They want a chance at the ruin our governor advertised when he was down east. It has just leaked out that Webster county's grand jury recently indicted a dead man. The indictment was brought against Mike Harahan for selling liquor contrary to law. When the sheriff came to arrest his man he found that Harahan had been dead for eight years. _________ The state board of health has re ceived from the United States commis sioner of immigration at New York a notification that the steamship " Gellert" arrived on the 14th of March from Hamburg with measles, a suspected case of genuine typhus on board. Among the passengers were 14 or 15 whose destination were various places in Iowa, the names of whom were enclosed. The state board has notified the local boards throughout the state of the facts and recommends that prop er precautions be adopted. The Chicago News says Maj. A. J. Holmes has associated himself with others to remove the old Harper's Ferry engine house, which was used by John Brown in his celebrated raid into Virginia, as a fort, to Chicago, where it will be used as a museum. According to dispatches printed in the dailies, Mr. Williams says that Allerton will meet any stallion desirous of a match during the August meeting at Independence, but under no circumstances will he again match his great horse at remote points, requiring transportation by cars. The Winona & Southwestern evidently means to extend their road from Osage southwest this spring. The company has been without an engineer foi some time, but they expect to set one to work next week. Mr, Dows, an official of the Burlington, Cedar Rapids & Northern, is now taking up the right- of-way along their new survey between Estherville and Manly. The road will be built from Estherville east. One of the strangest express packages ever shipped over the road was transferred. a.t Independence last we« „ l\ oonsialea of H, Smith, wife, child &nd r@ §B.r$vjte from New Tfi on top of trunks and packages and deposited in the freight room of the de- rot. They were all cheerful and happy, stating that they preferred this way of iraveling, having no responsibility on ;heir minds. ________ The Rev. George Sweet, a young Methodist minister of Russell, was struck blind while filling his pulpit at Ottumwa last week. He had preached in tho morning as usual, and in the afternoon while*in the midst of his discourse his sight gradually failed him, and he became totally blind. He was compelled to stop and announce the fact to tho listening congregation. Postmaster Keorl has announced that a footing just made shows that the receipts of tho Mason City postoflice for the year ending with April 1 will run considerably over $10,000, which will entitle the oity to freo delivery. Tho business men have been making a special effort to secure this and are highly elated over tho outcome. _________ Daniel Potter, residing five miles south of Waucoma, died last week. He was 03 years old and his wife, whose death occured February 11, would have been 93 had she lived another day. Next May, had both lived, they would have been married 74 years, being the oldest married couple in the state. Since the death of his wife Mr. Potter has not taken to exceed a cupful of food and has had no desire to live, and this feeling has absolutely taken away his appetite. After the prolonged fast, during which time ho persisted in tho assertion that he was not hungry, although daily pressed by his family, covering a period of five weeks, he has passed painlessly away from sheer starvation. • Superstitious people in the. vicinity of Fort Dodge are worrying over a phenomenon that was observed there last Sunday night. It was in the shape of a cross well defined that appeared in. black across the face of the moon. Several sober citizens saw the strange sight and insist that it was not caused, by clouds. It is said that a similar cross was seen in 1861, just before the war. PEBSOKAL MOVEMENTS. E. C. Tuttle is home from Independence for a two days' visit, Mr. and Mrs. O. P. Hale are oVet 4 from West Bend visiting at E. Tellier's. E. H. Clarke was called to West Bend lust Thursday to attend to I. O. O. F. matters. Alex. Patterson went to St. Paul, Neb., last week to attend to business interests there. John Kronholm was over from Fairville last week to see his old friends. The butter business at his creamery has boomed all winter. Earl Tennant and Geo. Woodworth returned from Des Moines Saturday,, having finished their school term at the business college. W. B. Quarton was in Tama City last week to look up matters connected with M. O'Rourke's law suit that has been hanging along the past year or more. He represents O'Rourke. C. D. Creed is back in Algona with his household effects, having sold out his business in Washington, He does not like the southern part qf the state, and thinks more than ever of Algona, Our old friend Robert Wilson is over from Oelwein on a .visit at his home near Burt. Robert has graduated at the Iowa state dental college and will soon begin the practice of his profession. Mrs, J. B. Willey returned Saturday from Eagle Grove, where she has been visiting Mrs, Rev. Glasgow. The many friends of the latter lady will be pleased to know that her health is very much improved. Mr. and Mrs. A. W, Sterzbuch started last evening on a hurried trip to Waukesha county, Wis., called thereby a telegram announcing that his mother is at the point of death. She is 70 years of age. Rev, Davidson went to Elgin, 111., to spend Sunday and his pulpit was filled by Rev. Skinner, who represents the home missionary society. One statement he made has local interest. He said that the Algona Congregational church had received $5,990 aid from this society. Father Taylor was aided in coming to Algona, and maintained here. Martin Bronson is back from his winter's visit at Seattle and the western coast. Martin is not naturally very enthusiastic, but his description of the situation there cannot be wholly due to the point of view. He says Seattle is full of handsome blocks unoccupied, and that the boom is dead. He does not like the soil or climate and comes back as nearly satisfied with Kossuth as we could hope to see him. In fact we should not be surprised to see him join the boomers and swear that this is the best country under the sun. A Little Girl's Experience in u Lighthouse. Mr. and Mrs. Loren Trescott are keepers of the government lighthouse at Sand Beach Mich., and are blessed with a daughter four years old. Last April she was taken down withjneasles, follpwed by a fearful cough and turning into a fever. Doctors at borne and at Detroit treated her, but in vain; she worse rapidly until she w» » mere s." %e« ah« tried Dr. ivepy, and af ter ttie was s' tttfs#ttftt»aPJetS}jf
