This is probably ^because they retail at $2.50, and are ihe same gVade of nhocs a-s are •usually sold at §3.6o. ! Advices from Pomeroy say ill at ttie relief committee has received up txj date about 870,000 in cash. * Aboiit 85.000 more has been'subscribed but has Hot yet been paid over. The amount disbursed is 850,000, leaving 820,000 moro in the hands of the committee. This will not be -spent at present, but will be retained to assist the poor as.,the cold weather comes-on, lor many of them will find the coming winter an exceptionally severe .oaae with their limited resources. At a late hour at night passenger train No. 5 on the Milwaukee & St. Paul railway, collided, with a freight train standing on the main track at Elk River Junction. The locomotives of both trains were badly damaged and the mail car was demolished. A number of tlie passengers were severely injured, but none dangerously. Horace Coles, the baggageman, and Conductor Pike were the most seriously injured, sustaining cuts and bruises. Richard \V. Densey, formerly a -conductor between Waterloo and Fort DodgCf tiled a suit in the Federal court at Cedar Rapids against the Illinois Central railway asking judgement for 820,000 for personal injuries. A year ago he was caught between the ears while making a coupling at Duncombe station, and was permanently injured. In the petition it is alleged that the cars were defective and that the company's physician improperly set his collar hone. What lookes a good deal like a plausible clue to the murderer of AnnaVVeise .at Green Mountain, Marshall countr, was discovered in the rumored story of a Chicago Great Western hrcakman named Pctrican. He is reported to have said that two strangers boarded train 07 at Green Mountain shortly after 11 o'clock on the night of the I murder. One was rather tall and the other short and the short man had some blood on his clothes. He was asked how they got that way and said he had cut his hand getting through a barb wire fence. The brakeman went on and later spoke to the conductor .about the men. When Ruinbeclc had been < reached they looked for the •strangers again, but could not find them. Three months ago W. H. Livingston, ija wealthy Sioux City business man, • •died in Chicago, his remains being : brought back to Sioux City by his wife. /Arrived at the depot, the sheriff took .charge.of them unrier an order of court .granting to his first and divorced wife the authority to take them. The court <rnade the order because of a letter left •by.Livingston, saying he desired the "first-wife to bury him. The first wife iheld. a'funeral, and the second went .into, court to get the remains. The ar- (gumentSianJ affidavits in the case have mow been filed, and they open up the .most, sensational scandal Sioux City .has, ever had. It is alleged that Liv- lintrston was forced to give his first wife •the.authority to bury him, and did so -•against hisuwill. The second wife also •stated that she bought the collin in •which her husband was buried, and .-cost S100. She contends that fihciis at least entitled to it, and if she •caii'tihave the body she wants the coflin. Theifall term of Highland Park Nor mal •College,opened last Tuesday, Aug. 29. The attendance was remarkably large :und the school is in every way the incfit .prosperous it has ever been. Alomg.early in the summer there was a rumor that the financial condition ot the oollege was not the best but, these matters .haive nil been arranged and we are assuued from most reliable sources that the .financial condition of Highland 5"a<rk College is .entirely satisfactory and that-the-school is the sohdest financially that it has ever been. This, together with the vorf 'arge attendance at the opening of the school this year and the many improvements and additions that have oeen made to ih e •school during live past year and past summer, will certainly commend this great institution ssiost favorably to the public, The enrollment last year was 1,314 and it isconndontly believed there will be 1,500 students .during the coming year. We can .heartily endorse this great school m every particular and take pleasure in giving our readers this interesting news. A few nights since about !) o'clock, some unknown party shot Omi McCarty UK he was sitting in a chair witlrn ten feet of his door at home in M-arysville, and );<; died from tin; ejects of ihe shot within half an hour. As near us can be learned, the deed was committ-cd by two purlieu, as McCarty Kaid he uaw two men run after the sl-ot was iirod. A shotgun was used.

His brains '.fell in a- mass upon the tench upon winch he sat when he fired the weapon, and his skull was found in another part of tlw room. Ills youngest son Vi tressed the cotrtmission, of th<5 de6d throogb a window. .Dissipation ' rh. df-ink and •morbid jealousy and unfounded suspicion <a.f his wife's cbastit/y are assigned as the 'cause, DURING Boies recently commuted the •sentence of Frank Shellody, who was •sentenced from Polk county in October, 1891., to twelve years in the Ft. Madison penitentiary ior assault with intent 'to commit rape. The -record shows tha;t , . ''this suspension -was granted because it .-appears from the statement -of -the prison -physician that said Shellody is afflicted with .consumption and<is rapidly failing in health and that 'his immediate release from said institution w.fll, : be ithe only chance af .prolonging .nis life.'' 1 Solely on account of .defendant'^ physical -condition J'tidge Holmes, 'before .whom Shellody was convicted, recommends -a suspension of his sentenos, which, 'however, is •to remain in force during -such time only .as said ^Shellody shall hereafter d erne am toimself in every respeot a* .an orderly ;and law. abiding citizen. In .connection with the -Pomery .cyclone considerable -comment is now .being made .as to the prompt .manner in which the insurance losses .have 'been paid, :aud-espeoially .by the Des Moincs Insurance '.Company. The. cyclone occurred on "the Oth -of .July and the company at -once sent its adjusters, Mr. Moody .and Mr. Haller, to the stricken district. Work on the adjustment of the loss was done with all ^possible speed, and in less than sixt.y days the announcement was made that the work lad been' -completed with satisfaction to all concerned. The losses .paid amounted 536,702.73, the largest tornado loss -ever paid by an insurance com- nmy, and the fact that the loss has icon paid -with such promptness by -an o\va company, shows that it has sound inancial backing and is willing .and able to protect its patroni. Certainly his company has done credit to Iowa and won for itself honorable distine- lon. or A diabolical murder was committed ear Green Mountain, Marshall county, at 10 o'clock on the night of he 20th, the victim being Annie \Veise, the la-year-old daughter of Jacob Weise, of Marshalltown. -She was working for a farmer named Henry Russe, and had gone to visit a friend at the home of Andrew Burgess, a mile distant. While returning .a man jumped out from the roadside :<and struck her on the head with a club and then cut her throat, almost severing her head from her body. .Burgess and his young son heard the girl's screams and hurried to her aid, but found her dead and the assailant gone. The only clew was a bunch of his hair in the dead girl's hand which, in the struggle, she had snatched away. No motive is known for the crime. The whole community is searching for the murderer, bent on summary vengeance. The police and public now believe Vert Eisenhart, a butcher of Gladbrook, is the murderer. He forced his attentions upon the girl against her will and threatened her life. Eisenhart is missing. The sheriff offered a. reward of £500 f or the captur e of the murderer. A fearful story of depravity and attempted lynching co:nes from Hedrick, a lively town of a thousand inhabitants twelve miles north of Ottumwa. Recently Mrs. Jessie Harlin attempted suicide by swallowing carbolic acid, and will die. The cause was jealousy of an uncommonly pretty domestic, Lillie Legrand, with whom, she alleged, her husband was unduly intimate. A few mornings afterward the young woman went to her home and attempted suicide, but, being frustrated, finally gave the reason as the awful treatment of her employer. She alleged that he had driven her, with a sharp knife, into the bedroom of his dying wife and assaulted her repeatedly till morning, threatening both the life of herself and his wife, if she made any outcry. As .soon as the young woman had told the awful story, her father pread the news and a lynching bee was inaugurated. The officers heard of the plans of the mob, got Harlin before: a justice, and then by stratgey succeeded in spiriting him away to jail in Sigourney. The outraged girl's i father followed the oflicers and shot at his daughter's assailant six times, but the shots proved ineffective. Mrs. Harlin is reported to be dying. She begged the olliccrs not to take her husband but leave him to the hands of the mob. The girl Lilly is closely guarded, so as not to repeat the attempt at suicide. Hedrick people declare that if further investigation con- linns the girl's story there will be a lynching party yet. The .suspended First National bank of Grundy Center, has been permitted to resume. Sanger & Tent's show exhibited at Perry recently. The old Hhull game was worked numerously. One man was fleeced out of 3,!0 and ho caused the arrest of Gilbert Fitxgerald, the manager of the show, un a charge of permitting gambling in the circus lent.

At New York it was especially severe, over a million dollars' damages resulting. Baltimore and -vicinity also report many thow>- amds-of dollars' loss. The storm which visited South Carolina, Georgi", and Florida turns out U» be more severe than was at first supposed. .Around •Port Royal, Beaufort, arid neighboring points in South Carolina over a-hiindred •persons \yere killed, mostly by clrbwn- •ing. At Savannah fifteen are reported dead and thirty vessels are said to have been wrecked. Other points report loss of life and great-damkge to propertj'.

The court of. appeals and the pope's -guard occupy the building. No damage was done to the building, 'but the man who threw the bomb was literally torn to pieces. .Reports from the section of the south from Charlestown, S. C., to Savannah, •Ga., and thence to Jacksonville, Fla., state that a cyclone passed over the country, doing an immense amount of damage. Details are scarce, but from Savannah it is learned that the new quarantine station, the ifinest in the south .Atlantic, was -ruined; the wharves are -gone; the fumigating •plant is at the bottom of the sea, and nine vessels waiting to be released are high and dry o.n the marsh, and no doubt will be total wrecks. Numerous •deaths are reported, but as the wires .are down information is hard to get. Later reports from the stcrm visited •section of South Carolina, are to the effect that the results of the storm are just beginning to be known, and it Js now -estimated that the loss of life •will reach fully a thousand. The property loss, though all figures are but a matter of conjecture, will probably exceed §2,000,000. Awful news comes from around Beaufort and Port Royal, S. C. Around these two towns there is .a complete chain of 'islands, and it was \ipon these that the death angel hovered for hours Saturday night, leaving in its path sorrow and desolation greater than ever visited the state before, even in the bloody •days of reconstruction. This section of the Atlantic coast has been prolific in storms that scattered death and destruction of property in their wake. but.the weather-wise, the •oldest citizens, the pilots cannot recall anything equalling it. Around these these islands alone 340 deaths are reported thus far and some of the islands have not yet been heard from. The property destroyed is awful tea captain said the wind must have olown 125 miles an hour and in some places the sea was blown fifteen miles inland. Ships are found resting on dry land, showing the awful force of the wind. Bartholomew Fosbinder, a farmer, committed suicide at Fieher, 111., by hanging. Temporary insanity due to religion is believed to be the cause. A sugar famine is reported in Dubuque, Burlington,- Cedar Rapids, Davenport and Waterloo, Iowa. Jobbers are unable to account for the scarcity. Congressman Philip S. Post was the chief speaker the closing day of the Rock Falls,111., soldiers reunion.

KANSAS CITY, Mo., Sept, 4.— This has been a great day in the history of the mormon church, four hundred and eighteen mormons, including the three first presidents, Wilford Woodruff, George (.). Cannon and Joseph .Smith, Bishop Hiram Clawson, and the two hundred and fifty members of the temple choir at Salt Lake City made a pilgrimage to Independence, Mo., a little town ten miles east of this plane, from which the mormons were driven in 1847. The pilgrims are en route to Chicago, where the choir will compete for the 86.UOO prize for the best organisation of two hundred and fifty voices, und for the $1,000 prize for a picked malu chorus.

Reed regretted the democrats had merely adopted half of the rules of that congress," but thought they were on the road to adopt them all. Springer introduced a bill for the coinage of the seigniorage of silver iu the treasury. Referred. SEXATE. Washington, August 30.—Bill for repeal of Sherman act was taken up and Sliermau addressed the senate. He said the reason of the decline in silver was because we had to p.iy our debts in gold. The balance of trade was also against ut and wo had to make the difference good. This, not the Sherman law, led to the present condition. He saii he consented to the passage of that law to prevent free coinage. A year ago he presented a bill almost in the samo words as the Voorhees bill to repeal it, aud not a democrat voted for it. The trouble was the currency famine, not the fear of the soundness o£ the country's mouey. He did not believe the repeal would overcome the stagnation, but it would ease the money market from the dread of free coinage. He would give the party in power authority to protect the credit of the government at home aud abroad, aud not wait to see what the Indian policy, was, und further efforts of the international conference, and the present clouds of gloom would disappear.

Throngs of hungry people ngaJu crowded about the temple on Judd and Clinton streets for something ta eat. ..-Three thousand or 4,000 wer& therd bright ,dnd fearly^ rettdy to receive the first tickets that were handed out. When the day before ]i,4l!3 persons were relieved of the pangs of hunger'it'was'thought a large number, but between the hours of !i a. m. and 4 p. m., tickets were handed out for I5,4d7 persons. One thousand or more were given out of which no record was kept, the rush being so great at one time as to render this impossible, There were l,i 00 persons who had not received tickets when 4 o'clock came, '.these found their way to the office at .Mi'J Canal street, where Mrs. Eopperl gives out t ckets to those who cannot wait. In all 3,005 families were cared for, consisting of 7,353 adults and 8,100 children. This required 13,827 loaves of bread and 4,9ai pounds' of meat. It was doubted whether the relief station would be opened in the morning on account of a lock of funds. But City Comptroller Wethevell was instructed to turn over to Mr. KOD- perl 81,500 of the 82,100 subscribed for thei.'general relief committee, and $178.fiO was received during the day. Alderman Madden has a plan for giving employment to 20,0~CO men. The city has let contracts for the improvement of streets to the amount of S5,000,000. The money is collected by special assessment and is not due Until next year. Contractors ordinarily take estimates on the work and use them as capital. This year the banks have refused to advance money, Aid. Madden's suggestion is that men who have the money and want to make a safe loan put it out for this purpose, thereby permitting the work to begin at once. M. J.

National Hank Bill Loses Vantage Ground —Will Keep Up Repeal Bill. WASHINGTON, Sept 4.—By tho operation of parliamentary law or of sens' torial rules the bill allowing an increased issue of circulating notes to national banks lost yesterday its vantage ground as "unnnished business" on the senate calendar and the house bill for the repeal of the Sherman act • has taken its place. And so, at the end of morning business to-day, and as long as it retains its precedence, the repeal bill will bo laid before the senate, unless Mr. Voorhees, chairman of the linance committee, may choose to let other business be transacted. And the repeal bill will not necessarily be luid aside at tlio c oseof the morning hour, but will remain as the question before the senate throughout the day. ' Mr. Vance (dem., N. C.), one of the minority members of the finance committee, will to-day turn his batteries of wit, anecdote, scriptural illustra- t'ons. arid knowledge of financial and others lawh against the house bill and the committee substitute for it. After he has got through, or perhaps before he begins, Mr. Stewart (rep., Nev.) will have an opportunity of repelling Mr.^Sherman's charges of incons'stency in figuring alternately in senate debates as a pronounced advocate of a gold standard and of the free and unlimited coinage of silver.

Mr. Cleveland, in particular, was in excellent spirits. His eye was bright, and complexion clear, and he looked--''-" vigorous and strong. LITERARY NOTES. Gutting for September is a delightful number, corrtaming a strong, complete story and many interesting sketches ol travel, adventure, and seasonable spoi't und pastime. The illustrations are, as usual, numerous and beautiful, the frontispiece—-a wounded black-tail buck —being tho artistic gem. The September Art Interchange is an unusually full number, both in text and illustration, without omitting any of its line supplements, which include a delightful study ol An Adirondack Uliido, und a decoration in color for a Rose Jar, consisting of seaweed and Hsh floating in the marine depths; what more appropriate studies could be found for those Summer days? Other supplements furnish new designs for embroidery aud pyrogniphy. Tho September St. Nicholas will be the first issue of that magazine since Wide Awake was merged in it.
