Fuller was arrested at Jewell function and held in SI.000 bonds for advertising obscene literature thrpiigh the mails. Mrs. James Bennett fell into a cistern fet her home in Bonaparte and was drowned. Her body was not recovered till some time after the accident happened. Marshalltown dispatch: A sum of money is being raised among neighbors and friends to reimburse the unfortunate Mrs. Bennett for the blunders of our disgraceful grand jury. James Dooley, the Adains county villain who murdered his aunt, Mrs. Nellie Coons, must hang on October 10. The supreme court having affirmed the opinion of the lower court, Governor Jackson has signed the death warrant and fixed that date as the time for the execution, which will take place at Port Madison. Near Dundee a 7-year-old girl saved a passenger train on the Chicago Great Western railway. .She was seen by the engineer waving her little red apron as a signal flag. The engineer stopped the train and she told him the bridge around the curve, was burning. The child had come out to bring her fathers cattle. Unknown burglars pried open the back door of the postofficc at Panora and drilled open the safe. They took ft few dollars in money which was loose, but left the stamps and several drafts which were on hand. From the skillful manner in which the work was done it is believed they were professionals. There is no clew. Judge Husted, of the Delaware county district court, denied the application of Delhi's jealous citizens for an injunction to restrain Delaware county's supervisors from erecting a court house at Manchester. The ground of the application %vas that 110 tax for the court house was voted, as the treasury surplus was sufficient to build it. Herman Childs, a young man from Keithsburg, 111., was brutally beaten by tramps near Fail-field and is not expected to live. The tramps robbed him of a gold watch and some money. Their names are Henry Slaughter and Henry Mitchell, both colored, and John • Smith, white, and they are in jail, awaiting the outcome 0! Childs'injury At an early morning hour fire was discovered m tho Pennsylvania house at Montezuma, and in .a short time the entire building, which was of wood, was in flames. Part of the furniture was saved. The loss will be about SI,000 to Landlord Grossman.; insured. The Democrat office was destroyed. The loss to Editor Boydston will probably be SCOO; partially insiired. The tailor shop of P. If. Finnigan also came in the lire's path. The goods were all removed, but were damaged perhaps $100. All three buildings belonged to F. A. Kilburii, and were insured for $2,000; total-value, §5,000. It is thought the fire was of incendiary origin. Sheriff Vickery, of Bedford, Taylor county, has C. C. Wearry, of Gage county, Nebraska, in cxistody. A few weeks ago Wearry was visiting his father at Lenox, and while there he purchased a team of horses from a citizen of New Market. The consideration was §200, and AYearry gave a note for the amount, with his father as surety. The signature of Wearry's father was forgery, and for this crime Wearry is now in the hands of the law, When Vickery arrested Wearry the fellow attempted to blow out his (Wearry's) brains, but was prevented by a little strategy on the part of the sheriff. From deal-field comes the report of a runaway accident, attended with fatal results. Daniel Stevens and wife with three small children were returning from Clearfield when suddenly they were overtaken by a runaway team attached to a wagon. The runaway horses collided with Stevens' vehicle, totally demolishing it, instantly killing two of his children and fatally injuring himself, so that he died the next day. Mrs, Stevens and an infant daughter miraculously escaped with slight in juries. Z. Beamer, driver of the runaway team, who is a brother-in-law to Stevens, sustained serious injuries. The official investigation of the Iowa soldier's home affairs has been concluded, At the meeting of the full hoard of commissioners Col, John II. Keatly turned over all the funds for which he was responsible and tendered his resignation as commandant, which was accepted. Commissioner J. 11, Katekin, of Shenandoah, was elected commandant to serve out the remainder of the term, which expires next May, Col. C, L. Loiigley, of Waterloo, will be appointed adjutant in place of Fred Wells. The financial affairs of institution are now in satisfactory the remaining 1 lew hundred dollars of apparent shortage being- made has a gfentlfettian firteit Jfrfet- -Kmonial eapferieiieee, thotgh,«;bri&f, have been rathe* checkered! '^iMffe Embree was married two years age*, btit after living a year witK hft'wrfe he deserted her and Mrs. Embree sectored a divorce. A fexv mdnths ago Mr, Embree became infatuated with Miss Lily Stone, was married and lived with Mrs. Embree No. 2 two weeks. Lily secured a divorce, and now George remarries his first love. John Leonard, of Belmond, was tried before the United States commissioner at Fort Dodge for 'bdunterfeiting, and placed under $1.000 bonds. His partner, Frank Lord, now in jail at Dtt* biique. testified against him. Their method of counterfeiting was very simple. They would take a new quarter of a dollar, cut off the "qufti-'* from the word "quarter" and make the "r" into an "n," making it read "ten dol." Both sides were then covered with gold leaf. The fraud could be easily detected, but passing them at night they were quite successful In shoving them out. Iowa has never seen as disastrous a year for fire loss as 1804, During the summer dry spell the towns of Brooklyn, Belle Plaine, Eagle Grove, Bonaparte, Leon and Adair were almost wholly wiped out by fire. Besides hese conflagrations, numerous smaller fires occurred everywhere throughout the state in rapid succession. The loss to the insurance companies especially was excessively severe. But it served to demonstrate to the people of Iowa that.their home companies were solid and prepared for the emergency. The Capital Insurance Co. sustained its proportion of these heavy losses, but every loss it had was promptly, honorably and courteouslj' attended to, and when adjusted promptly paid in full. No better insurance can be had than a policy in the Capital Insurance. Company, of Des Moines, Iowa. Will M. Perkins, assistant electrician at the Council Bluffs _ electric light works,-was instantly, killed while oiling a Thomson-Houston machine that Hghts the city tower lights. He had had charge „ of the machines for four years and was thoroughly familiar with them. ' In working about the machine he had in some way managed to make a "short cinmi V by which he got the full strength of the current through his body. The machine had a power of 1,800 volts, considerably greater than the machines which furnish the power for electrocution in Sing Sing. When the body was picked up there was not the slighest bruise or disfigurement about it to show the cause of the death, but the mysterious fluid had done Its work, nevertheless, effectively. Mr. Perkins was 34 years old and unmarried. His parents, .live in Loveland. ;'• The Keystone hotel, situated on the north side of the square at Centerville, was discovered to be on fire at an early morning hour. As it was a frame structure filled with inflammable matter it was soon a mass of flames, which at once spread westward into the frame buildings occupied by Stickler's meat market, Miss Stuart's millinery store and a barber shop, from which the contents were mostly removed in safety. The fire department, aided by the recent rain, checked any further spread of the flames. The fire was undoubtedly of incendiary origin, as numerous attempts have been made to burn the Keystone, which has seemed up to the present to be as fire proof as any structure of steel and terra cotta. There'is •general rejoicing, however, on account of the fire, as it removes some eighty According to a Mason City dispatch, ib,e completed list of fatalities from recent cyclone is as follows; Jn county, 18; HapcqoJs, 4; Worth, 3; Mitchell 6; total of 53.

He bequeaths to his wife, Jane Kirk wood, $1,000 a year and all his stock, vehicles, household goods, etc. At his wife's death §10,000 will go to Mrs. M. Rachael Pridehard from the estate. The remainder will be held in trust by the Citizens' Savings and Trust Company under the following injunction: "The income from this trust shall be annually paid to the Iowa City Women's Relief Corps, No. 78, for the full term of five years from the date of my death; At the expiration of that time the trustees shall pay the principal sum of the balance of my estate to the trustees of the State University, to be used by them for the betterment and support of the State University." As executors the governor named Mrs. Jane Kirkwood and A, E. Swisher, and, decreed that no bond be required. Park &OdelJ, Lawyers, Des Moines, la. Refer to any bank in Bes Mpines.

The republicans of the AsHland congressional district of .Kentucky have nominated Judge George Denny. It is said that he will! receive many Breek inridge votes, and will probably give Owens a pretty hard race- He will challenge Owens to joint debate. Nebraska democrats met at Omaha and nominated Congressman Bryan for United States senator on a free sil' ver platform. Judge Holcoinb, the potmlist nominee for governor, and five other candidates of that party, were endorsed. One hundred and five delegates who opposed fusion left the convention and nominated a straight democratic ticket. New York democrats, in session at , Saratoga, nominated Senator Hill for governor by acclamation. Hill was chairman of the convention and when his name was sprung on the convention positively declined to be a candidate, but no attention was paid to his .protest. Daniel Lock wood was named for lieutenant governor and Judge Gaynor for the court of appeals, It is now certain that the number of fatalities resulting from the recent cyclone will reach sixty or more. The property loss is variously estimated at from $500,000 to $1,000,000. The congressional district committee met at Lexington, Ky., and canvassed the votes for Breckinridge and Owens. A protest from Breckinridge, declaring that Owens' apparent majority was secured by fraud, was read. The committee found Owens had 255 majority and declared him the nominee. Breckinridge will make no further protest. Desha Breckinridge son of /the congressman, insulted James Livingstone, an Owens man, on the 21st. Livingstone smashed Breckinridge with his fists and Desha drew a dirk, which Livingstone grabbed, receiving a wound in the hand. Friends rushed in and a big fight was threatened, but cooler heads controlled the : situation and further bloodshed was prevented. A dispatch says a feud is likely to result from incidents of the campaign which will rival the famous Kentucky vendettas. IOWA PATENT OFFICE REPORT.

Printed copies of the drawings and specifications of any one patent sent to any address for 25 cents. Valuable information for inventors free. Des Moines, Sept. 21, 1894. THOMAS G. AND J. RALPH OKWJG, Solicitors of Patents, The Royal Baiting 1 Powder has the enviable record of having received the highest award f pf articles of its class 'greatest fe'tfengta, p'iifest in'gre'$finl , most pei-f ectly combined—wherever exhibited iti competition with others. In the exhibitions of former years, at the Centennial, at Paris, Vienna and atthe vafiotfs' State and Industrial fairs, where it has been exhibited, judges have invariably awarded tire Royal Baking Powder the highest honors. t At the recent World's Fail- the examination for the baking powder awards weretaade by the experts of the chemical division of the Agricultural Department Pf Washington^ The official report of the tests of the baking powders which Were made by this depart' ment for the specific purpose of ascertaining which was the best, and which has been made public* shows the leavening strength of the Itoyal to be 160 cubic inches of carbonic gas per ounce of powder. Of the cream of tartar baking powders exhibited at the Fair the next i Fair, the next highest in sti-ength thus tested, contained but 133 cubic inches of leavening gas. The other powders irave an average of 111. The Royal, therefore,, was found of 20 per cent. greater leavening strength than its nearest competitor, and 44 per cent. above the average of all the other tests. Its superiority in other respects, however, in the quality of the. food it makes as to fineness, delicacy and wholesomeness, could not be measured by figures. It is these high qualities, known and appreciated by the women of the country for so many years, that have caused the sales of the Royal Baking Powder, as shown by statistics, to exceed the sales of all other baking powders combined. a Hundred Were kilted ahd Twice that NufnBer Wefe '' MalMed.

Big Scheme Presented at tho Reunion at Murphysboro. MURPHTSBOHO, 111., Sept. 29.—A scheme for a great Illinois mine workers' home was floated at tho reunion of mine workers which opened here yesterday, and if plans of. the projectors are • carried but it will be one of the greasest institutions in the world. At the present time there is nbt'ti miner's homfe on'the globe. The projected institution is to be at once a home for the aged, a hospital and an orphan asylum.

The scheme provides that the 35,000 miners in the state shall pay 50 cents ainonth for the first three months stud for nine months 25 cents per month, thus se- a fund of over. 3? 130, 000. In addition aid is expected from coal operators and the public generally. Ground is to be broken next spring, the home, hospital and orphan asylum to be built in turn. The projectors, who are all minaworkers, have already raised a preliminary fund and are confident that the scheme will be carried thrdu£rh. DEBS' CASE NEARLY OVER. Judge KILLING AT SEQUOYA, ARK. Five Corpses Are 'Found and Sheriff Refuses to Act. FORT SMITH, Ark., Sept. 29. —The particulars of the Sequoya tragedy telegraphed last week are coming in. The dance at which the killing took place occurred about fifteen miles from that city. The dance broke up in a row. The next morning three men — Harris, Falcomer and Brings— were found dead outside the house, Since then the body of a. whisky peddler, named Moss, was discovered underneath the house and the body of a man named Wilson was also found. It is thought that both Wilson and the peddler were killed to prevent their telling anything- about the fight. The sheriff refuses to go to the place. A deputy sheriff went up \>\\t returned: and no one has been arrested. HOT AFTER COR3ETT.
