Sac City dispatch: The great ado about' the failure of the corn crop, and the-subsequent hard times, is greatly exagerated, at least in this section.and many other sections of the state.

The charges in the petitions are diversified, adultery, desertion, inhuman treatment, intoxication and general cussedness being charged. Tl»e docket is the largest ever in the history of the court.

After an exciting chase they were -captured, badly wounded, by Chicago police. IMPORTANT FOOD TESTS. How 'to Produce More Economical and Healthful Articles for the Table. 'The official food analyses by ; the United States and Canadian governments :have been studied with interest. The 'United :States government report gives the names of eighteen well-known baking powders, some of them advertised as pure-cream-of-tartar powders, which contain alum. The report shows the Royal to be a pure cream-of-tartar baking powder, the highest in strength, evolving 100.6 cubic inches .-of leavening gas per single -ounce .of powder. There were eight iqther brands of cream-of-tartar powders tested, and their average strength was lll.:5 cubic inches of gas per ounce of powder. The Canadian government investigations were of a still larger number of powders. The lloyal Baking Powder was here also shown the purest and highest in strength, containing forty- five per -cent, more leavening gas per ounce than the average of all the other .cream-of-tartar powders, These figures are very instructive to the practical housekeeper. They indicate that the Royal Baking Powder goes more than 33 per cent further in use .than the others, or is one-third more economical. • Still more important .than this, however, they prove this popular article has been brought to the highest degrees of pxirity — for to its superlative purity this superiority in strength is due— and conseqviently that by its use we may be insured the purest and most wholesome food, The powders of lower strength are found to leave large amounts of impurr ities in the food. This fact is emphasized by the report -of the Ohio State Food Commissioner, who while finding the Royal practically pure, fmmd no other powder to contain less than 10 per .cent, of inert or foreign matters, The statistics show that there is used jax the manufacture of the Royal Baking Powder more than half of all the cream-af-tartar consumed in the United States fop .all purposes. The wonderful sale thus indicated for the Royal Bftking Powder-r-greater than that of all other baking powders combined— is. perhaps even a higher evidence than that already quoted of the superiority of this article, and Of its indispensable' »ess to modern cookery, W1U Open » Tin Plate Mill.

The action will be de- decided upon at the meeting of our directors in Peoria next week. The law has provided that whisky can remain in bond three years before the limit for payment of taxes expires. Much of the present product has two years or more before the limitation is reached. It will be claimed that all such whisky comes under the old tax and is not now subject to the increase." Three Harvest Hands Kilted. FKKGUS FALLS, Minn., . .V<pi.l,—• A shocking accident happened at 8 d'clock yesterday morning on the farm of Ole Lysue, two miles east of Aastad postoffice, Grant county.

German Fythians Angry. MILWAUKEE, Wis., S eptJ.—The German lodges in this city are incensed at the statements which the supreme chancellor made in his annual report.

She returned to Ettfeka ffdttt the seminary when she was 18 years old, and waa the belle df the tpwn. d Pretty, witty, graceful and vivacious, she possessed all the requl* sites for the breaking of .hearts, Her first victim was the nephew of a well kndwn capitalist, and her cdU- duct with him created such a scandal that her parents sent her to the care of relatives in San Francisco. The change failed to make the desired reformation and she soon became a marked figure on Kearney and Market streets. Among her admirers was a wealthy Hebrew named Rothschild, who laid himself and his fortune at her feet She utilized bdth until ishe fell in love with Henry Neustretter, a cigar salesman. She married Neu- stretter in 1884 and all wont well for a time. Her husband's business .compelled him to be out of the city most df the time and during his absence Nelly lecl^a gay life. She was the boon companion of all the fast young men about town and the end came in 1887. . : She left her husband and went to. New York in company with Laura Edelman, a noted woman of Los Angeles. Neustretter secured a divorce and Nelly continued to live a gay life in New York. She captured the heart of a millionaire manufacturer, who gave her a sumptuous fiat horses and carriages and all the money she could spend. He took her to Europe where she traveled like a princess. When she returned to New York she dazzled the people with the elegance of her Worth dresses and the brilliancy of her jewels. In 1890 she returned to - San Francisco to visit her parents, who had removed to. this city from Eureka. She took rooms at a leading- hotel, dressed better than any woman in the city, wore thousands 'of dollars' worth of gems and "spent money as freely as if she had an unlimited letter of credit on the United States y mint. Her money began to give out and she went back to New York for more, taking with her "a pretty Oakland girl. DThe next that vyas heard of her. she had gone td Europe again and had been ejected from the Continental hotel in Paris. To her parents she wrote that she was studying for the stage and she always carefully concealed- from them the fact that she was leading a gay life. She wrote that she would return to San Francisco in October, but probably her encounter with Mr. Vanderbilt may interfere with her plans. Senator Voorliees Breaking Down. WASHINGTON, Kept . if- Senator Voorhees' voice will probably not be heard in the democratic campaign in Indiana this fall. His condition of health is very critical, and he has been ordered to Hot Springs and will leave as soon as lie is able to travel There is a feeling here that Senator Voorhees will never be permanently restored to health.
