If anybody has discovered what the vermiform appendix was left in the human anatomy for he has not enlightened the world.

Ac late number of the annual report of the southern California historical society has been received containing an article by C. P, Dorland on the history of the lips Angeles river. We note also that M P , DjM-laaa if But all this does not satisfy curiosity as to the historical accuracy of Earley's story about that encounter with the mountain lion. As a friend of historical accuracy Mr. Dorland should make a record of the facts. The Scotch school house up in Union has been the center of a lot of intellectual activity the past winter. In a week they have a declamatory contest and tomorrow night they have a mock trial. Verne Tubbs is to be judge, T. W. Julian prosecuting attorney and J. H. Zanke lawyer for the defense. A jury will be impannelled and a boy tried for larceny. At this school they have lately discussed tho tariff, prohibition, and state ownership of the railroads. W. D.

At the time the Wilson mill burned there were a lot of checks out for grain that had been deposited in the mill and which represented the flour, etc., the holders were entitled to. There was some difference of opinion over the payment, Mr. Wilson feeling that he should not bo held to have insured the grain. To settle it Miss Lenette Wilson called a meeting of the check holders Monday, and gome 50 or more fathered at Starr's hall. After a full iscussion in which she stated her position the meeting voted that the checks bo paid, and she at once notified all holders to bring them in. Thos F. Cooke was in Chicago last week for a meeting of army officers representing the rifle practice teams of the western states, to arrange for the inter-state contest this year. Final choice of a location was not made but will fall between Camp Douglas in Wisconsin and Camp Lincoln in Illinois. It is likely that Iowa, Illinois, Wisconsin and Indiana will contest and possibly Ohio and Minnesota. Some desirable, changes in rules were adopted, among them one preventing coaching of the team, It was also decided not to allow men who had been in two contests to be chosen on the teams. As soon as the time and place of the inter-state contest are arranged Col, Cooke will plan for the state shoot, Some of our Company F boys should begin to polish up their guns and get a place among the winners. A curious law suit arose at Whittemore Saturday in which H. A. Lillibridge sued John Steil and John Kennehr for stallion services, F. M. Taylor represented the plaintiff and J. W. Sullivan the defendants, and a jury tried the issues. The defense made was that LilUbridge had represented that his horse would trot in three minutes at the Fourth of July races, and relying on that they had bred trotting mares to him. They claimed that when the races came off the horse failed to perform as warranted, and they asked for $30 damages for being led into using him, After a long contest the jury found for the defendants, when it was discovered that one of the jurors lived in Palo Alto county. 4 motion is now made for. a new heading iu the district court and the cafe, ; mfiR, be heard at the coming $erp, --*• Saturday voted for the following resolution which will undoubtedly result in something if the railway company will join and leave Thorington street as at present: Resolved, That we receive a proposition of a right of way for a highway from the mill bridge south eastwardly to Jones street as tendered by Jones & Stacy and the Call estate and the mayor is requested to employ C. B. Hutchins to locate said road and to prepare a profile map showing its grade and variations without expense to the city, said report to be made at the next regular meeting. Also that the city attorney is ordered to correspond with the Milwaukee railway company regarding the under grade crossing on said road ascertaining to what extent they will aid us in opening the same. Erroneous i-eports have been in circulation about the failure of tho bank in Llano, Texas, W. S. Borland was connected with, and the trouble that has arisen since. THE UPPER DES MOINES is acquainted with all the circumstances surrounding it. The facts are that Mr. Borland sold his interest in the bank some time ago to a local capitalist who went in as cashier, and under whose management the bank failed. The failure caused much bitterness between this man and the old officers, and he had them arrested on charges dating back to 1891. These are not that there was any misappropriation of funds or that anyone lost anything, but that there was a technical failure to comply with the law in making a report in that year. The whole trouble has arisen out of personal spite, and would amount to nothing if it were not for the number of failures in Texas and the popular feeling that has been aroused. Mr, Borland will come out all right, but will be inconvenienced by this unpleasant turn of affairs. The depositors have lost nothing in his bank, The heaviest losers are himself and the president and the managers who are charged with violating one provision of the law in making reports, Mice Wanted! 6OO Mice, I will pay, for one day only, on Saturday, March 3,10 cents per dozen for full-grown, healthy, live, brown mice, at loan exchange office.
