Mr. Crawford asking in the district court damages to the amount of $15,000 for slander. After the action of the council, Rev. Mr. Crawford and his church withdrew 'from the Baptists and joined the United Brethren, building a new church. He claims that Rev. Mr. Williams and George A. Thomas, a traveling man, who is included in the petition, have written letters charging immorality, forgery, perjury and obtaining money under false pretence, and that when ho was a delegate recently to the waterway transportation congress at Lincoln, Nob., these men had written such letters containing such charges to all the prominent Baptists in that city. Rev. Mr. Williams is away from home taking his summer vocation, but as ho is a brisk religious lighter the contest will be for the extermination of one or the other. Langdon & Hudson, Leaders in C.

The State University gets over a freight car load of specimens from the Bahamas from its expedition. An exchange tells of two subscribers to a certain weekly journal, who wrote to ask the editor his remedy for their respective troubles. No. 1, • a happy father of twins, wrote to inquire the best way to get them over their teething, and No. 2 wanted to know how to protect his orchard from the myriads of grasshoppers. The editor framed his answer upon the orthodox lines, but unfortunately transposed their names, with the result that No. 1, who was blessed with the twins, read in reply to his query: "Cover them carefully with straw and set fire to them and the little pests, after jumping in the flames a few minutes will be speedily settled." No. 2, plaugued with grasshoppers, was told to "give them a little castor oil and rub their gums gently with a bone ring." Richard Van Houten, who has lived for the last six years with his daughter, Mrs. Geo. Bettingill of Jefferson, Tuesday morning experienced an extraordinary return of the powers of hearing, which physicians say is explainable on no scientific ground whatever. He is an old gentlemen, 84 years of age, and for the last half dozen of these years he has been as deaf as a storied adder. No sound, not even the loudest thunder, has caused the slightest sensation of hearing in his brain. His hearing facility has been pronounced dead. The surprise of the household may be ira- magined when the old gentleman announced, Tuesday morning, that he could hear the clock tick and repeated after his daughter a sentence she had just uttered. Local physicians offer no explanation of the phenomenon. iH il'iH.v/.-.j • Now for the Ladies.

ON THE BIGHT TBAOK NOW. Tom Dennett Goes Hack oil Democracy and Will Have No More of It—What Ho Stiys. Tom Bennett bus renounced the democratic faith, and makes the declaration publicly that hereafter his sympathy and vote will be with the republicans. He furthermore says this change of heart is not the result of any sudden conversion, but tho outgrowth of studious reading of the newspapers with a view to getting at the truth. Mr. Bennett is an .Englishman, born and raised on British soil. He saw England struggle for existence under a protective system, and prosperous with free trade; but it has only lately occurred to him that what was good for England was not necessarily the proper thing for America. It is more than likely that the democracy's uncertain attitude in the present financial trouble has had its effect in determining him, but this is by no means the prime cause, as he himself says. We felicitate Mr. Bonnett on his change of heart, and can assure him that he will find friends in the republican ranks who will welcome him_with open arms, no matter what tho price of beefsteak may be. He is to be congratulated on having, even at this late day, seen a great light and cast his fortunes with the party of progress. In his particular case it is not in the nature of a deathbed repentance, for there is no immediate prospect of his passing to the etherial hence; but there as something about it suggestive of the old couplet that 11 While the lamp holds out to burn The vilest sinner may return." PBETTY GOOD LUOK. The Bruiison Boys Close up the Show Season with Money Ahead—a Good Record for This Year. Glenford's Uncle Tom's Cabin company closed up business for this season at Hopkinton, near Davenport, last week and W. J. and Glen. Brunson, G. N. Cady, Geo. Kuhn and Charley Walker are all homo. They had a good run until a little over a week before they separated and then the hard times came in so effectively that they took warning from the eight companies that had broken up in Iowa already, and quit before they were compelled to. In talking about their trip Glen, says they have had lots of experience, and made good wages above all expenses. So they feel very well satisfied. He says that if this year had been like last they would have come out away ahead. There was some talk of reorganizing for the county fairs, but the boys will give this up unless there is a sudden change in the financial state of affairs. They will also give up all idea of putting a repertoire company on this winter unless there is a change. And as this is unlikely they have no present 'intention of doing anything. They have been engaged in packing away their ontfit, which will be ready in case they decide to reorganize. When looking- For a cook stove or range, remember I handle the....

We_be : The Sheldon Mail hears that a Lyon county farmer's wife was asked by two stalwart tramps not long ago to provide them a square meal. It was a hot day and the good woman set out a cold lunch for them. This they did not relish to their satisfaction and asked for hot coffee or tea. The farmer's wife objected to making & fire to provide the desired warm drink, because the weather was so warm. The tramps insisted that she should. The woman thereupon stepped into an adjoining room, from which she emerged an instant later with a revolver. She told those tramps to "git" or she would make it warm for them in that way and they got out and away from there in a jiffy. ________ The bad blood which was stirred up a couple of years ago by the action of the Baptist council in Ottumwa passing derogatory resolutions against Rev, Mr, Crawford, then the pastor pi the The Keystone Watch Case Co. of Philadelphia, the largest watch case manufacturing concern in the world, is now putting upon the Jas.
