Wadsworth, Barnet Devine. le Would Have the Board of Control Scoop the Fish and Throw Them Up by Hniid. Down at Bonupsirte is a dam in the Des Moines river with no fishway. ?he owners of the dam have tried for ears to sell the dam to the state or $25,000. The object is to get fishway, which the state cannot jet without buying, because the dam vas built before fishway law was nactod. Burrell, the genius of tho Washington Press, suggests a better vay of helping the fish up the river: '"Tot to touch the work by the dam ito, but in fishing season detail meui- lers of the board of control and railroad ommission, who got $2,500, $3,000 and 3,500 salaries, to take station below he said dam, either in boats or wading n and catch fish in scoop nets, and by land fling thorn above the dam. No ulhiy for the construction of fishway ,nd there'd be no additioual expense, ,s those officers' time is not all taken ip and their small salaries have to be iaid anyway. Let them heave fish over he dam and give the Izaak Waltons ,bove a show to catch something. -s- -f- -*A bill is pending to prevent cousins rotn marrying. Burrell sn.ys: But the Rothschilds have been, are, and long vill be, a most remarkable family for mental and physical power, but for gen- rations they have intermarried, mar- ied cousins, uncles married nieces, lephews married aunts, and have not eteriorated, but have maintained heir grip, nerve and brainy gray mater. -j- -i- -T- Upon the adoption of a resolution di- ecting that a committee of the house 10 appointed to attend the funeral of 3.

Another legislature has to pass it first. -f- -f- -i- The house defeated the bill provid- ng that private banks be examined. -J- -i- -i- The board of control bill passed the senate hurriedly when the time came, with 16 votes in opposition. A big lot of amendments and a substitute bill were pending when Senator Funk moved the previous question on the whole outfit, and it carried. This brought an immediate vote without discussion and everything was voted down jut the original bill, which passed substantially as the committee had recommended. The only amendment wasone securing to local dealers the preference ^n furnishing supplies to the state insti- iutions, other things being equal. The fight in the senate has been bitter and personal. The outcome is a great vic- ;ory for the ways and means commit- ,ee. Senators Funk and Healey especially. Under the senate hill the three colle'ges of the state are not under the single hoard of control. ATTEMPTED' SUIOIDE. Veriio Halter, Formerly a Kousuth- ite, Tries to Poison Himself. Verne Baker, son of Dr. Baker the LuVerne politician, who played tennis in Algona a year ago, got up a sensation at Humboldt by attempting suicide, The Livermore Gazette says He has been in Chicago for a couple of weeks, and on his return found that the affections of his lady love—a well- known Humboldt maiden—had ceased to center upon him. In fact they appeared to have been centering elsewhere. He therefore locked himself in the printing office and helped himself to a dose of arsenic, which rumoi says was so diluted as not to be very effective. Suspecting something wrong the door was broken open and he was rescued, or a stomach pump brought into requisition, or something of tha kind, we cannot learn just what, and he is still in the laud of the living Whether this plan will regain the los affections of his girl remains to be seen February Warm anU Dry.

The Rice Lake, Wis., Times comes ith full particulars of Wm. E. Spener's funeral, which was attended by Jol. Spencer and family. In the obitu- ry are the following paragraphs of pecial interest: "Jack" Spencer, as 10 was familiarly known, was popular vith all Wisconsin people who have jeen in Washington during the past 0 years, and he had a wide acquaintance throughout the state. He hud een long a sufferer from asthma. He ook cold early in the week and was at- ackod with paroxysms in which he had difficulty in getting his breath, suffered from loss of sleep, being unable to lie down, but after two bad lights, Wednesday and Thursday, he was much improved and expected to be at his desk in the senate Monday, jut it was not to be. Tho funeral ser- ices at Washington were held Sunday and were attended by a largo sompany of senators, representatives, imployes of the capitol and members of he Wisconsin colony. Former Vice President Morton came from New York to pay the last tribute to a man who was of so much service to Mr. Norton during his term as president of ,he senate. Vice President Hobart also attended, as did Senators Spooner and Mitchell, and members of the Wisconsin delegation. The services were ionducted by Dr. Milburn, the blind chaplain. A beautiful, tender, and touching prayer was delivered by the chaplain of the senate at the opening of the senate Monday in memory of Mr. Spencer. The deceased was graduated from tho University of Wisconsin in the summer of 1861, being a classmate of Son. William P. Vilas, and a year ater was appointed to a clerkship in the second auditor's office in the treasury department at Washington, D. C., oy Secretary of the Treasury Salmon P. Chase, and filled that position for 'our years, and on March 28, 1866, was ippointed to the clerkship in the office of the secretary of the United States senate, and with the exception of four years has been the minute and journal cleric of the senate, a very responsible position, and he discharged his duties io acceptably that when there was a political change in the senate he con- iinued to hold his place. Benedict's Fablo Uomaiii. Aiden Benedict's Pabio Romani, which will be presented at the Call opera house Wednesday, March 30, is a play with a strong and stirring interest in it. Those who have read the book entitled "The Vendetta" will easily remember tho pretext of the story. A deceived husband is buried alive, but escapes from the tomb, and returns in disguise to torture the unfaithful wife, killing her at the moment he makes himself known. The novel furnishes intense scenes which are ably interpreted by a strong company, the principal members being specially engaged for the characters assigned them. A special feature of the performance will be the introduction by Miss Grace Hunter of her celebrated serpentine, lire, stereopticon, and Spanish dances, in which specialties she is pronounced everywhere to be the best exponent traveling. eaped, By Handling the Best Goods.
