One of the most interesting exhibitsat the state fair, which begins Sept. 1, will be a "working dairy," which will be conducted by the dairy department of the Iowa Agricultural college. Space has been assigned for this exhibit in the southeast corner of the dairy hall. The work will be done by the senior students under the supervision of Prof. Wallace. Beginning about 8 o'clock every morning, whole milk will be taken and the cream separated with a " baby" separator, such as is adapted for use on a farm. Tho cream will be ripened and churned, the butter worked and packed in such a manner that nil who are interested can see every detail of the operation. Tho Babcock test will be in constant use and the method of operating it explained. Whole milk, skim milk, buttermilk, etc., will bo tested for fat. The dairy will be in operation only in the forenoon and those who desire to see it should arrange their time accordingly. The workmen at the Duncotnbe stucco mills are not as pleased as they might be. Last year Mr. Duncombe told them that if the democrats came into power their wages would bo raised. They all voted the democratic ticket, and now their wages are greatly reduced and many are out of employment altogether. _^_^__ Some prominent lowans are among the victims of one Whitman Dunbar, who is under arrest at Washington, D. Ho sent out glowing accounts of official state histories he would publish, the same to be ornamented with portraits, the copper plates for which would cost $10.75. Among those ho caught in Iowa were Congressmen Lacy and Gear, ex-Congressmen Sweeney, Flick, Conger and Kerr, ex-Mayors Rohrer of Council Bluffs. Craig of Keokuk, Dungan of Burlington, and Hancock of Dubuque. Minnesota has a long list of the swindled. It is possible Dunbar cannot be convicted, as he set no time for the publication of his books. Iowa is winning a great many of the stock prizes at the Chicago fair competition. An accident at Glenwood duplicates Jos. Thompson's experience, only it was much worse. J. J. Woodrow and daughter were killed on a C., B. & Q. crossing. Their carriage was struck the train and the vehicle wrecked. Both bodies were horibly mangled and the team killed. The safe in the railway depot at Eumboldt was blown open Saturday. They got $1.50, about as well as at Lu- Verne. ,-, Miss Jessie Boies, the accomplished daughter of the governor, is in very delicate health at her home in Waterloo. She has lately had two hemmor- rhages of the lungs. Gov. Boies' disinclination to enter another canvass was partly on her account. The winter school in dairying begins at the Iowa Agricultural college at Ames, early in December and continues for ten weeks. The aim of this school is to g >e the young men of the state the in. roved methods of dairying and fit thei, i as far as possible for taking charge of creameries and private dairies. Many of those who have attended are now receiving as high as $85 per month and the demand is greater than can be filled. Information concerning this and other dairy schools held during the year can be obtained by addressing Prof. Wilson or Prof. Wallace, Ames, Iowa. Down at Albia an aerouant had a lively time, his balloon catching on fire. He waited before cutting loose until it was up pretty high and then dropped with the parachute. He was dragged through the timber some and badly scratched, but escaped serious injury. Spencer has a robbery sensation. Sheriff Lewis Saturday night arrested John Murphy and son and three hired men for robbing a peddler of $350. The peddler cannot be found and murder is suspected, The Register says a canvasser for the sale of stereoptican views has been traveling through northern Iowa for about five weeks, going out from Des Moines. He has written to relatives recently that although the picture of Cleveland has been heretofore the stock in trade of the firm he represents he has been able to sell but one of the views in which the president figures. The people won't have them. " Young Hickory" is what they call Prank D. Jackson. Grand Army Resolution. To the Editor: At the last meeting of James C. Taylor post a committee was appointed which reports the following memorial: Whereas, Adam Sawvel and S. I. Plum ley, late members of James U. Taylor post, have received their final muster out, wo drop their names from the list of living comrades, but retain in our memory the record of their patriotism and cherish the principles of loyalty for which they so treely gave the best years of their lives. THE MONTH'S MAGAZINES. In consideration of the vast volume of travel, from the summer resorts and to the world's fair, which is sure to take place in September, llornance issues a "Special Travelers' Number" for this mouth. Not only are accounts and incidents of travel made a feature of it, but all of the stories are of a character peculiarly suited to the needs of the traveler. They are sparkling, short, and of remarkable variety. Among the authors of various nations represented in this interesting collection nro Curtis Yorke, Connn Doyle, LuJovic Halcvy, M. E. M. Davis, Anntnlo France, Charles 13. Hong, Alice Wellington Hollins, Helen Lee Sargent, Guy do Maupassant, and Jules Sandciui. _^_ Scrihner's Magazine for September contains 10 titles in prose and verse, seven of them illustrated. Tho artists represented include Alfred Parsons, A. E. Sterner, W. L. Taylor, O. H. Bachcr, J. H. Twachtman and C. S. Heinhart. With such notable artists the number is remarkably rich and attractive in its pictures. Four of the articles, widely varied in character, deal, from different points of view, with literary personages whose books have become classics. The thrco hundredth anniversary of the birth of Izaak Walton is noticed by an entertaining article on his life in London and at Dovedale, with illustrations from recent sketches by Alfred Parsons, who is so skillful in depicting English landscapes. -»••*The Century has Just come in possession of one of the most unique and important historical documents of the ago. It is a record of the daily life of Napoleon Bonaparte on board the English ship which bore him into captivity at St. Helena, as contained in the hitherto unpublished journal of the secretary of the admiral in charge. The reports of many conversations held by the admiral with the deposed Emperor regarding his important campaigns are given with great fullness, and there is much about tho bearing and the personal habits of Bonaparte during the voyage. The diary will be published in early numbers of the Century. -4-f- The September Atlantic Monthly contains an article which will be of special interest for a considerable number of our readers, on Edwin Booth, by Henry A. Clapp, the eminent Boston critic, whose appreciation of Mr. Booth is equal to his skill and literary art in adequately describing him as an actor. A second article of special value just now is one on Wildcat Banking in the Teens, in which tho historian. J. Bach McMaster gives much i nformation with regard to the old state banks which some people fear are to bo restored. Bradford Torrey contributes an article, in his particular line of of outdoor interest, on The St. Augustine Road. Slay Belles. —Life. From Possum to Herring.

It weighed a little over 849 pounds. A gentleman who had gone to watch with a sick friend opened a door which led to the cellar, but from which the stairs had been removed. Ho fell and was killed.
