He was in Tipton last week and took in half a dozen of the boys who had found fishing with a pole and line too slow and resorted to the use of a seine. They all pleaded guilty and received the minimum fine of $10 and costs. The big, red-headed commissioner admits that he isn't the most popular officer in the state, and says that an irate individual occasionally refers to him in uncomplimentary terms; but that doesn't prevent him performing his duty of saving a violator of the fish law from punishment if he can obtain sufficient evidence to convict him. Judge Woolson has decided in a case before him in Keokuk that the United State certificate for retailing liquors must be conspicuously displayed at a fixed place of business—hence it cannot be used by a peddler or bootlegger. One such who had paid the revenue tax was found guilty and fined $200. Last spring traveling agents for an eastern nursery company had a great run on what they represented to be a recent importation from Prance, called the " wine plant." The beauties of the new fruit were extolled to the skies; it was represented to be exceedingly profitable, and highly colored lithographs of the vegetable were exhibited. Farmers near West Union bought largely and have cared for the new plant with especial tenderness. It now transpires that the wonderful " wine plant" is nothing more nor less than ordinary pie-plant or rhubarb. T. R. Ercanbrack of Anamosa has been elected Grand Captain of the Grand Commandery of Iowa Knights Templar. _____^ The census of the Musquakie Indians in Tama county was taken the other day. There were 389 persons living, a decrease of four during the year. There were 20 deaths and 16 births during the year. Males 195, females 194. Two Indians have crossed the 100 year line, one being 111 years of age and the other an even 100, according to the best authority. ^_^^^ The Chicago papers never tire of saying nice things about the Iowa State band. The Herald recently devoted two colums to writing up this band and four others. In speaking of the various musical organizations at the fair the Herald says: More money has been spent on music halls alone in the Chicago fair than was devoted to the.whole musical display at previous expositions. Passing by the great orchestras, the choral organization, and other musical features of the fair, the military band features alone are worthy of especial notice and commendation. There are at least seven splendid military bands in attendance at the fair. It is true there are some of them in the employ of concessionaires, but that does not take away from the musical dignity of the display. There are four great American bands in the number. Sousa's famous band, Liesegang's Chicago band, Brand's famous Cincinnati band, and the famous Iowa State band are the four great representatives of American military music. The populists of Iowa will hold their state convention in Des Moines on Sept. 5, according to the notices sent out by Chairman Scott and Secretary Bellangee. The ratio of representation will be two votes for each county and one for each 100 votes or major fraction thereof cast for Weaver at the last presidential election. While Fred Engle and wife, residing near Hawkeye, were away from home Thursday, their little six-months-old boby was smothered to death. They Left the child with a hired girl and she left the baby asleep on the bed, forgetting to return. When the parents arrived they found the baby under a pillow on the bed dead. Secretary Shaffer of the state fair association has arranged with the Grace Shannon Balloon company of Atlanta, Ga., for a series of ascensions to be given during the fair. Prof. Ed, R. Hutchinson is the principal manager of the outfit and will be assisted by several able performers. A lady will make a parachute leap from mid-air on the first day, and on the second day she will take a dog up with her and they will both make a parachute leap, separately. On the third and fourth days there will be an ascension and parachute leap by a lady, man and dog. The ascensions will be one of the strongest attractions in the line of entertainments. ______ Miss Belle Richardson of Davenport, daughter of the democratic manager of Iowa, was attacked by a foot pad in Chicago last Thursday evening. She was walking with Wm. Ficklin, returning from an evening's visit to the fair, when a large man confronted them, holding in his hand what seemed to he a revolver, and snatched the young lady's diamond hrooch. Ficklen then discovered the supposed i-evolver was only a hook and attacked the highwayman with his cane, knocking him down and belaboring him well. A policeman then came up and arrested the man and all parlies appeared in court Friday. The alleged highwayman proved to be T. C. Woodin, a well known traveling salesman, and who, for several weeks, has had charge of an exhibit at the world's fair. His defense was that he was drunk at the time and did not know what he was doing, and the officer who took him in corroborated the statement. He was pretty badly used up and expressed great contrition, and as his mother, who was in the court room, was almost prostrated by the disgrace of her son, Miss Richardson begged that the case be dismissed. The justice, however, declined, and held Woodin to the grand jury in bonds of $1,000. Harmony prevails at Fort Dodge. The Forepaugh circus went to Rev. Green's church on his invitation, and Rev. Green and family inspected the menagerie and saw the scenes of the revolution on invitation from the circus. Congressman Hull was thrown from a cart at Des Moines Monday, and his collar bone was broken. The seventy sixth victim of the Pomdroy disaster died Monday. Congressman Bryan, the brilliant young democrat of Nebraska, made a rousing free silver speech at Des Moines Monday evening. He is against Cleveland and proposes an open fight. The state crop report for the week is as follows: The daily average temperature of the past week was slightly above the normal. Except in a few favored localities the rainfall was deficient for the needs of growing crops, and droughty conditions still prevail over the larger part of the state. Corn is doing notably well, however, and no reports of material damage have been received at the central station. The majority of the crop correspondents for this burelu, in thi'ir reports for Aug. 1 use three figures to express the present condition of corn. The week was favorable for harvesting and except in the northern districts the bulk of small grain has been secured. Nearly all reports show heavy injury to oats by rust and, judging by partial returns, the state at large will not produce over two-thirds of an average crop. All immature crops need rain. Rev. R. D. Smith will sue a Dubuque hotel. He is a darkey and was refused breakfast. The regimental camp at Sioux City next week is to be called Camp Stone in honor of Ex-Gov. W. M. Stone, who died a couple of weeks ago. A Wagon Load Of Money does not necessarily Imply content and happiness on the part of its possessor. It is not money that gives us pleasure, but the things that money will buy. Some people spend money foolishly, and fancy they find enjoyment in doing it, but the pleasure is more fancied than real, No man who buys The McCormick No. 4 Steel Mower can ever be accused of spending money foolishly, and he'll find a hundred reasons to convince him of his wisdom. We are building the No. 4 to meet the demand for a. really superior mower, one that embodies the prime requisites of durability, convenience and light draft. You'll like this mower; not merely because thousands of other farmers like it, but because it is a really likeable machine.
