I beg to call your attention Mrs. Dolph Can-, living at 812 Eighth street, Des Moines, was probably fatally burned shortly after 6 o'clock last Thursday evening. She was in the kitchen at the rear of the house preparing the evening meal. She was using the gasoline stove and, as the tank became empty before her work was done, she attempted to flll the tank without first extinguishing the fh-o. As soon' as she began to pour the dangerous fluid into the tank it ignited and the tank exploded, throwing the burning fluid all over hoi* clothing.

The Sioux City Journal Washington correspondent tolls the following on Dollivor: Congressman Dolliver appeared in his seat this morning, having returned from the campaign in Rhode Island, which ho thinks one of the livelist that ho has over been on- gaged in. By tho way, is rather an amusing story in connection with the part taken by Mr. Dolliver in the campaign. When ho was first asked to come on ho sent a vory long telegram in which he pleaded ill health as tho reason why he should be excused. Tho local committee men inquired of ex- Spoaker Reed what ho thought of Mr. Dolliver's excuse, and the astute ox- speakor replied: "That telegram is altogether to long for the purpose; toll him to cotno." And Dollivev went. tempt to put her in an insane asylum, and her claim was for her father's property. Hor attorneys were ex-Congressman Lacey and Judge Blanchard and those for the defense wore ex-Sen* ator Ben McCoy and Mr. Lafferty. The jury, after being out 41 hours, brought in a verdict for §5,000. The case excited great attention, and brought out a lot of scandal on one of the oldest families in Mahaska county. On tho one side it was claimed that tho girl was hysterical, unreasonable, and had an uncontrolled temper. She, on tho other hand, told of having tho boot jack fired at her, and of other liko in- Ilictions until patience ceased to bo a virtue. Tho jury evidently boliovod her story. ______ Tho Fourth District Editorial association will meet nt Mason City, Thursday and .Friday, May 11) and 20.

WOLPEET, Proprietor. gHOBTVFOBM MOBTGAGES- Tbe bwt tor chattel w«k State foot ball has received a fresh impetus this spring by the organization of an inter-state league composed of the University of Minnesota, the University of Wisconsin, Northwestern university and Iowa college. A lesser league has been established also, consisting of the universities of Iowa, Nebraska, Kansas and Missouri. With two thriving leagues in tho western and northwestern states foot ball may expect to assume the popularity it holds among eastern colleges. Belmond indulged in a little sensation last week. Prof. C. E. Salisbury is the principal of the schools and Thursday E. P. Ripley swore out a warrant for his arrest for assault and battery upon his daughter, Florine, who was punished for violations of the school laws. A trial was had before his honor, Mayor Brewsaugh, and the latter found Mr. Salisbury guilty and fined him $5 and costs. The school board, wishing to sustain the teacher, paid his fine, raised his salary, suspended Florine for the rest of the term and going in a body to the school room presented Mr. Salisbury with a whip, with instructions to use it. Sam. Clark says Mt. Pleasant has had an illustration of the sort of tribulations that attend school teachers. A teacher, Miss Arnold, whipped one of her girl pupils; pretty soon tho mother raised a great hullabaloo, showed that the body of tho child was badly bruised and beaten and she raised a great uproar about the teacher for cruelty. Miss Arnold insisted that she didn,t punish tho child in tho way assorted and it came about upon tho further investigation and tho mother's own statement, that tho child was beaten after she got home and that tho bruises came from this homo beating. Donison has raised §30,000 to start a normal school and business college, W. M. McFarland, secretary of state, has bought two buildings in East Des Moines.

Messrs. Officer & Pusey have recently sold this same tract, and Robert T. Lincoln ami ato wife have executed a deed for the: same., Senator Dodge of Burlington is the hero of the hour, and the name at Mis* Boies is unpleasantly, untruthfully;, and unnecessarily connected wibli. it..
