At Frank Bros. 1 store. to In one of the justice's offices at Des Moines a couple of young folks were married. The bride was given away by a lady friend, who remarked to the court that this was the fifth couple she had assisted in a marriage service, and she supplemented the words by saying that the> four proceeding ones had since been divorced. "I would like to have you attach a divorce coupon to the certificate so these two can clip it off as soon as they get tired of each other without bothering me to appear as a witness," and she appeared surprised that the justice would not accommodate her. Mr. B. F. Tillinghast of the Davenport Democrat tells the Washington Post that the democrats of Iowa are opposed to Hill, and that if he "should be nominated the state would go republican by 30,000 majority." ^MM^^^MM ** An Iowa district court holds that a newspaper subscription is a matter of 'family expense," and gives judgment against both husband and wife in the case where the husband had conveyed term, and unless a settlement is made by the principals of the case, it will bo tried and will become more famous than its past record has made it. Mr. Ellsworth is now attending to his land business and Mrs. Ellsworth has just returned to Cedar Rapids from Hot Springs, Ark., and is now the guest of her friend, Mrs. J. C. Ives.

A county auditor has asked State Sec- etary McParland about the Australian ballot law. The statute requires that notice of elections shall be published in wo papers, of different political princi- iles, at a cost not to exceed $30 each. One county wishes to publish the notice n three papers, giving each $20, which vould make the aggregate expenditure he same, $60.

An order has been issued that all pension money over $0 a month shall be remitted to tho de P endent families or to the treasury. The inmates are getting from $4 to $50 a month.

M. C. A. _ Sam. Clark says there was a sad tragedy in the county jail at Centerville, Iowa. An insane man named Thomas H. Cue of Cass county, chancing to be in Appanoose county, showed signs of insanity at the hotel where he stopped and was taken to Centerville and put in jail. He seemed very quiet and harmless. There were three men in the jail and Sheriff Bray asked them if they had any fears about his putting the insane man in the cell with them. They said no for he was perfectly quiet. A few hours later there was a great outcry at the jail and when the officers and people rushed there they found that the insane man had killed Bobby Stewart, one of the prisoners, and had tried to kill the other two. They had fortunately got into another coll, but through the grate he was thrusting a red hot poker at them, that he had heated in the stove. Ills delusion was that his family had boon murdered and he was hunting their munderors. He thought ho had found them In tho jail and hence his furious attack upon the men. Bobby Stewart was dead when tho oHloor got there. Tho first blow upon the head had evidently killed him but the Insane man kept boating and burning the body, Tho Iowa people have perfected an organization at Portland and hereafter Oregon. and Iowa will be knit together tr«ly «4ster p^B.
