Frank Clarkson, the 19-year-old son of R. P. Clarkson of the Register, while out hunting Monday accidentally discharged a gun, the whole charge of shot going through his arm just below the shoulder. He was in the' wagon coming home and noticed that the gun was slipping down under the front seat. Reaching his left hand down he took hold of the gun and pulled it up. The tiammer caught under the seat, or in some way unknown to the young >rnen, and slipping off discharged the gun and the entire load passed through his left arm, about four inches below the shoulder, breaking and shattering the bone 'or two inches in length and lacerating ihe upper muscles of his arm very severely. It is thought the arm may be saved as he has a healthy, vigorous constitution. • Over 300 fast horses were on the Mason City race grounds yesterday. The big races last this week.

Richmond, who was killed in a wreck at Dubuque in 1891. A Dubuque doctor has sued a local ougilist for $3,050 for an assault. The 63,000 is for his injured feelings, $5 for dislocated necktie, §5 for his collar, WO for his medicine chest, epsom salts, etc. According to the Ottumwa Courier an Arab peddler walked into the depot at Ottumwa and asked for a ticket to liicago. The agent was just making out the ticket when the peddler tendered in payment a brilliantly colored covering of a tomato can, which had been passed on him for a ?10 bill. He was much surprised when he was informed that the gaudy paper was worthless, and it was with difficulty that the ticket agent made him believe that he had been " taken in." The annual meeting ["of the Upper Des Moines Baptist association opened yesterday at Jefferson; It will last four days. On Monday at the Minneapolis & St. Louis depot in Humboldt Arthur Robinson, aged 10 years, tried to jump on to a moving freight train, but lost his hold and fell under the wheels. He had the top of his head crushed, besides being othorwise-terribly mangled. The shell game proved seductive at Humboldt Monday. Sanger & Lent's circus was there and drew a small crowd. The circus didn't pay, but the shell game attachment took in lots of money. It is astonishing how these old worn-out fakes flourish. SIOUX PITY AND ALGONA.

Old Time Precocity. French children of the lost century hud no kindergarten schools. Perhaps if they had had them they would have declined to attend them. Certainly it would have been a daring teacher who would have recommended blocks, pink and blue kindergarten papers and the like to tho notice of Mile. Necker, oven in her early infancy. This young lady, who afterward became the famous Mme. do Stael, composed tragedies at the mature age of twelve years, Tho aristocratic little French girls of the period began writing their memoirs at a tender ago because that was tho fashion of tho time. They were taught elaborate manners and tho art of conversation, and at tho age of eight or ten years they dressed and appeared very much like their mothers. Along with social graces they were also taught how to be excellent housekeepers. One may conclude that Mile. Bambouil- let led tho ranks of brilliant children, since her remark to an nnapprcciativo elder became famous. Tho subject of dolls or play or some trivial matter of that sort had been introduced for her benefit, and she said: ''Oh, no matter about that,' grandma. Let us talk politics. I am seven years old now."—Youth's Companion. Why Thorghatten Hugo Halo Through It. Thorghatten, the famous Norwegian mountain, has a hole extending entirely through it from one side to the other. According to a Norwegian legend this same Mount Thorghatten was once a hat and belonged to one Thorg; hence the name Thorghatten. It seems that in the mythical ages & giant and giantess fell violently in love with each other. They were forced to part for a time, but vowed that they wpuld marry in the near future. Soon after, however, the fickle woman pledged her troth to another. This angered her giant lover to a degree unknown to modern men of smaller stature. He was seventy miles from her when the oil's brought the news; but, selecting a good arrow, he shot it in her direction. Now it happened that her brother, Thorg, was standing in direct line of the arrow's flight. It went through his hat and skull, killing him instantly, and fell Harmless at the feet of the faithless giantess. She had the power of turning all objects into stone, and forthwith willed that her brother's hat become a stone monument to the tragedy. The cruel lover was turned to stone where he sat astride his horse at Hestmando, and the giantess herself petrified at Lecko. The two latter objects have dia appeared, but Thorg's hat (Thorghatten) is still the object of many curious pilgrimages.—St, Louis Republic. Dividing the Swag. The prisoner was in the police court for stealing a pockotbook and a shyster interviewed him. "You want a lawyer to defend you, I suppose?" ho said insinuatingly. "I'd as soon have one as not," replied the prisoner, "if it doesn't cost too much." "Well, I'll only charge you ten dollars." "Thundoration!" exclaimed the prisoner; "there was only eleven dollars in the pocketbook, and you don't want more than half of it, do yovi?"—Detroit Free Press. What Constitutes u Writer? The question now agitating the Writers' clnb is this, What constitutes a writer? A certain lady recently demanded admission to this club of literary women on the strength of having sent in various things to Punch. The venerable jokist had rejected her efforts, it is said, but the club officers were assured on the writer's own authority that her articles were infinitely superior to the things he did print every week.—London Letter. Cotton Uruwiug In Southern Uussin. Cotton culture in South "Russia, which was initiated some time ago by the minister of imperial domains, is now giving promising results. The earlier attempts failed through the ignorance of tho cultivators, but since tho Kherson school of agriculture took the matter up the propagation of American cotton seed has proved entirely successful. — London News.
