Martindale isthe conductor. The body of an unknown man tied with ropes to a stump and cut in a number of places, was found on an island in the Mississippi a mile north of Clinton and 'an investigation is in urocress. A few months ago Mrs. Lizzie Norton of Cedar Rapids, while under the influence of liquor, almost murdered her 10-year-old adopted boy, for which she is now under indictment for assault with intent to kill. Charles Norton, her husband, has brought suit against Brown & Co., druggists, for §4,000 damages for selling his wife liquor. The neighborhood of Cottage, llarclin county, is greatly excited over the mysterious death of Luke Taylor, whose decomposed body was discovered in the house where he lived alone. The idea of foul play is prevalent, but the inquest tends to show that the man died from natural causes. He was over 50 years of age and has always lived a secluded life. On the morning of the 20th a severe wind storm visited Sioux City and several large buildings were unroofed. On the evening of the same day a disastrous wind storm swept over the entire western portion of the state, doing much damage to trees, etc. At Manawa a pavilion was completely wrecked and several persons occupying it received slight injuries. The torpedo boat Ericsson was started on her trip town the river from Dubuque on the 22d. She will stay a week at St. Louis, and will make her trial trip at New London, Conn., in July, She will then go to Newport for her armament. Engineer Windsor, ,who has superintended her machinery, has been appointed chief engineer of the new cruiser Minneapolis. ; II. C. Chutenden, a wealthy resident of Lansing, Mich., who is interested in Des Moines and has faith in the city's future, has purchased foi-ty-seven acres of ground lying- east of the Chicago Great Western railway and between East Grand avenue and the Rock Island road. The consideration was $1.000 per acre. The property was sold by the wealthy Gates family of Newton. 1 The president of the Iowa Road Improvement Association has appointed as delegates to the Good Roads conference to be held at Asbnry Park. N. J., July 5 and (3, all vice presidents of the Iowa association, also editors who are delegates to the National Editorial Association, held at the same time and place. No credentials are necessary. The New Jersey, New York, Maryland and National Road Associations are taking much interest in this conference and expect to make exhibits in practical road making-. At Council Bluffs the Ladies of the G. A. R. elected the following officers: Mrs. Mary J. Toms, Iowa City, department president; Mrs. Warner, Newton, senior vice-president; Mrs. Ophelia Hully, Milford, junior vice-president; Mrs. M. J. Drake, Clinton, treasurer;' Mrs. A. Adamson, Newton, chaplain. The AVoinen's Relief Corps' election resulted in the election of Mrs. Flora B. Evans of Clinton president; Mrs. Drew of Council Bluffs was elect'ed senior vice-president and Mrs. Ballard of Des Moines junior vice-president. Winfleld Wickham, foreman in the box making department of a Cedar Rapids creamery and dairy supply house, met with a fearful accident. While at work he dropped a wrench on a moving- pulley which was revolving at the rate of 2,500 times a minute. The high speed broke the wrench, and the pieces flew in different directions, the large, heavy end striking Wickham the face. His nose was crushed flat, and a deep cu,t was made in the right cheek just below the eye. ; Fire swept the west side of Main street at Buffalo Center, from Slaba & Dreesman's hardware store south to the depot. About a dozen buildings were destroyed, the total loss aggregating probably over $20,000. It was only by superhuman efforts that the rest of Main street was saved with no fire pro- Action whatever, and only for a nice shower of rain Ihe previous evening'! everything would have been dry as tinder and gone up in smoke. Already carpenters are figuring on lumber bills, and it will only be a few days before work will commence on more substantial buildings in the burnt district. The fire was probably of incendiary origin. V ' At the annual encampment of the ]owa U. A. B. at Council Bluffs the report of the adjutant showed a total membership in Iowa of 17,058 on De- 'Pfiinber 31, a decrease of 3,309, The losses were 306, an increase of 38 J' the proceeding year. TJie finan- *$lal report showed the receipts to, be $9,854.79 and expenditures $7,493.41; Balance on hand $3,361.58. The fol* lowing officers were elected for the en' yew" Commander, Oeo. A.

At first it was supposed to be a genuine case of Asiatic cholera, but investigation traced the causes to fe pond of foul water where the cattle had been drinking. All the victims are in a rather critical condition, but it is thought they will recover. Sherman Trimble, for several years bookkeeper for the Capital City Nurseries of Des Moines, and of which Capt. C. L. Watrous is proprietor, was arrested by detectives upon a warrant charging him with forgery. Me was locked up at the Central station, where he made a confession to the detectives. Trimble is a single man attd has previously borne a good reputation. He has made his home at the nurseries, where he has been more or less in charge. There he was found by the detectives. It is claimed that he passed forged checks, bearing the signature of Captain C. L. Watrous. The first was for $5, the second for $10 and another was considerably larger. R. II. Hendershot, the "drummer boy of the Rappahannock," is famous the nation over. He went to the front with the Ninth Michigan in 1861,, when but eleven years of age. Since the war he has been heard the nation through in his unparalleled drum musical entertainment. Secretary Fowler of the state fair has closed a contract with Major Hendershot for state fair week. He will be accompanied by his son, J. C. Hendershot, one of America's best fif ers, and will bring the collection of drums and sticks presented to him by those high in military and official life. To the soldiez-s especially, and to those who love the martial music this engagement will be especially pleasing. ; At Dubuque Judge Shiras appointed Attorney Frank E. Allen, of Estherville, receiver for the American Investment company of Eminetsburg. The company has liabilities of $3.285,000, including capital stock of §8,000,000, and its assets, nominally the same, are estimated to be worth $1,800.000 less. There is also a contingent liability of about $3,000.000 and accrued interest on guaranteed loans estimated to be worth 60 per cent of their face, for it is estimated that 40 per cent of these loans have been defaulted. The John Stewart company of Manchester, England, holds $1,000,000 of the company's obligation and wanted a joint receivership, but this was not granted. The company's cash on hand available for payment of liabilities is §54.32. The company failed to remit $13;),000 collected for eastern investors, and for this President Ormsby is threatened with criminal proceeding's. The miners of Polk county, to the number of about 150 held a mass meet- Ing on the Governor's Square R.t Des Moines. They devoted Lheir attention to discussing the means to sti-engthen their organization so as to help those who are still refusing to work unless the operators will sig-u the scale and pay them what the operators say will make them operate their mines at an actual loss. The operators say they will never run their mines under the terms proposed and insisted upon by the miners, that if the latter prefer to stay out for a year or paore it is their own fault. The miners say that the operators in Polk county have some advantages, and that the patiiral advantages are not all with the outside mines; that the Polk county market is better, for one thing. The miners decided to assess every working miner 5 per cent of his net earnings for the support of those who are out of work and belong to the organization, Chicago detectives are looking for a barber who charged John K. Steen nearly $150 for a shave and a look at the "sights" of the city. Steen arrived in the city from Washington, Iowa, to transact business in the interest of a patent check rein, lie went into a barber shop beneath Halter & Chote's on Sherman street, and having got a shave accepted an invitation of the barber to take a trip about the town. They started out together, and Steen can remember nothing they did after the men entered a saloon where the barber met his friends. They asked Steen to drink with them, and he ordered a glass of beer'. The stuff that he got tasted like turpentine, and in a minute the room began to whirl about him. and he fell from his chair to the floor. When he recovered consciousness the place was empty, and he soon wandered out, dazed. His pocketbook containing $55, a gold watch and a scarf pin were missing, and a big lump on his forehead and a sickly sensation at his stomach were all he had for his good time, Steen reported the matter to the Harrison street police that morning and the officers went to the barber shop tinder the Atlantic. The chair used by Steen's barber was empty and the man was nowhere to be found about the place. DUBINQ a high wind an empty box car Avas blown out of the Boone yards, fourteen miles west of Ames. The car was stopped at the latter place before doing any damage. J. C. Snadgr^ss is one of the justices of the neace at Winterset and J". S. White is an ex-justice.

Erastus Wiman, recently convicted in New York of forgery, Was sentenced to five years and six months at Sing Sing. • . On the 20th Assassin Prendergast was taken before the criminal court at Chicago to be tried for insanity.

The American Railwhy t/nion, by a vote of 113 to 102, decided not to admit negroes to the organization. Iowa, South Dakota, Nebraska and Kansas were visited by severe wind and rainstorms on the 19th. A cloudburst occurred near Wichita, Kas. In an attempt to kill Premier Crispi of Italy, an anarchist fired two shots at him. Neither took effect.

The official report makes the number of dead 180, with twenty fatally hurt. The perished rescuers numbered ten. The mines were still on fire at the last report, and it is believed all the bodies will be cremated. The Illinois supreme court has handed down an opinion in the case brought by the republicans at Danville and the populists'at Springfield to set aside the legislative apportionment made by the democratic legislature last year. The supreme court virtually affirms the decrees of the lower courts, holding it has no jurisdiction. Each of the lower courts decided against the plaintiffs on the ground that a court of chancery has no jurisdiction over matters of political rights. The supreme court concurs in this opinion, so the democratic apportionment stands. f Mfe Ills.. June 18.— the train stealers were convicted and sentenced to si&ty days in jail.
