The mineral springs sanitarium and hotel, near Ottumwa, burned to the ground. Loss, $25,000; insurance. $15,000. The fire started from a defective flue. Potato thieves have appeared in Mosalem and other townships of Dubuque county. They operate in the fields at night, and entire patches are carried off.

John Wise, of St. Charles, heard some boys bent on mischief about his barn, and ordered them to stop. The boys started to run, when Wise fireci three shots from a revolver, one bullet taking effect in the back of Earl Williams, son of a minister, which will likely cause his death. Wise gave himself up to the authorities to await the outcome of the wound. Judge Shiras in the federal court at Sioux City has made an order fixing •November 35 for hearing the arguments on the question of ownership of the stock and bonds of the Sioux City, O'Neill & Western roads. The securities are claimed by J. J. Kennedy, Tod & Co. of New York and the Credits Commutation company. The amount involved is about $4.000,000. Recently Cox & Skinner's general at Union was burglarized. A few days ago three men who were tramping through the country near Eldora selling goods were arrested on suspicion. The, property found in their-possession corresponds with the goods stolen at Union. They have been lodged in jail at Eldora. The prisoners give their names as Frank Reed, Harry McDonald and Percy Layton. Further than this they will say noth- . ing. During a severe storm at Ren wick lightning struck the house of Dr. Sherman, mayor of the town. It happened at about 11 o'clock at night, when all the family were in bed. The bolt struck the chimney on the main part of the building and knocked it down into the chamber, scattering the debris in all directions. Eortunately, no one was sleeping in the room that night for the first time in months. The bolt tore off* a strip of shingles a yard •wide on the north side of the house. The parlor carpet was torn, up on one side of the room and a big mirror smashed, while a picture had the frame shattered bxit the glass left intact. A series of clever check forgeries have just come to light at Keokuk. The State Central and Keokuk Savings Banks cashed -two checks each for .170 presented by a well dressed stranger who, on being asked for identification, went out and returned with the in- dorsement of D. L, Hughes, manager of the opera house, and secured the jnoney. Since his departure checks drawn on the Commercial Bank of have been sent to ICeokuk for collection from a bank at Freeport, 111,, one coming by way of Chicago, Cedav liapids and Davenport. They each had every indication of being genuine. The opinion is there is an organized along the Mississippi Valley. • residence of D. 3R. Cross, at Bea- was burned a few nights ago. Jt valued at $5,000 and was only insured. W. Jf. feimith, a young 1 a.nd prosperous 1'armer living near Alt. Mornon, game to his death M fow days ago in a mysterious manner. Telling his m,on iie \yasTgoing to sljavp himself, he went ta bis room, where -ftp was Mrs. Fffedefieka Fitzen was literally • toasted to death at Davenport. She \ised kerosene to get a quick fire, but the flame darted ottt and caught her clothing. She rushed into the street screaming, but when assistance cattle she was beyond medical aid. Fire at Colfax, supposed to have been caused by a crowd of men with a keg of beer in J. W. Vail's livery barn, destroyed the barn* the electric lighting plant, the city pump house, and Ator- rison & Hartley's blacksmith and Wagon shop. The total loss will exceed ten thousand dollars. Three years ago, in a small Iowa town^ Peter Cline, whose parents and brothers reside near Winfield, 111., and are respectable farmers, was arrested for taking goods from the store of his employer. He Was tried an I convicted. The reason he gave for taking the goods was that his emploj jr was mean and beat'him out of money, and he took this method of revenge. Before taken to prison. Cline escaped. A reward; qf $50 was offered, b\it he was never •caught tfntil a few days ago. A few days after his escape in Iowa, a woman made her appearance in the Cline household at Winfield. She was introduced'as a sister from the east, and everyone believed the story. A few days ago, however, an officer put in an appearance and arrested the supposed sister, who proved to be Peter Cline, who for three years . has been masquerading in feminine attire. He was at once brought back to Iowa in charge ofau officer. An effort will be made to obtain a pardon for him, A sensation was sprung at Audubon when the grand jury returned indictments against a dozen people for con- spiracj- to rob the Davenport Glucose works. The sheriff at once arrested Arthur Schweunecker, Joe Hall, Bill Ferris, Al Heath and a man named Bell. It appears that Heath was employed in the big elevator ipwned by the glucose company at Audubon and that while the manager was at dinner ' that''he? he had entered into "a conspiracy with the others to have them go through the motions Of selling loads of grain to the. company. He made out the checks, which they presented at the bank and got the money. Then it is alleged the men shared the njoney. The elevator •company lia'd. known- for some time that its grain was running low but couid not find a reason until this exposure. All the others implicated are young farmers who have borne, good reputations. The amount taken by this means will amount to several hundred dollars. •'. -,; A Pocahontas Center dispatch says: It is rumored that the water in Storm Lake is gradually getting lower as the days go by and no rain comes. There is now hardly enough water to float the fish, and the boys had great, sport catching them with their hands until the people feared that if they continued to do so there would be no fish left and one of the attractions, would be gone, so the city council passed an ordinance forbidding the taking of any more fish. It is amusing to sit on the bank of the lake and see the thousands of fish fins protruding from the water, it not being deep enough for them to get out of sight. The water supply for the town is now being taken out of wells so that the lake will not totally disappear. The facts in the case are that this beautiful lake has been supplied by springs, but owing to the weather these springs have become so dry that the only water that has run into the lake was from the little showers we have been having during the past two months. It is to be hoped that the .lake will not totally disappear, for it has been one of the handsomest lakes in northwest Iowa. Benjamin Merritt, of Sawyer, Nebraska, democratic caiididate for representative of Filinore county, Nebraska, was killed at or near Atlantic a few days ago, The affair is shrouded in mystery, but the general impression is that he was murdered. Merritt came from Nebraska on the evening train, and after talking to the proprietor of one of the hotels with whom he was well acquainted, he started for Ellers livery . stable and got a team to drive to his sister-in-law's place, some-fifteen miles south of Atlantic, starting about 8 o'clock. Soon after leaving the hotel a stranger came and incjuired for him, and several persons have said Merritt was accompanied by a stranger when he drove out of town. Next morning at f> o'clock the hostler of the livery stable foxind the team standing on the opposite side of the street from the livery barn. Crouched down in the buggy was the body of Merritt, cold and stiff in death. • He had been killed by a bullet wound near the temple, his liair and skin being powder burned. ; Us right hand was gioveless and a re- yolver with three cartridges exploded jwas found in the buggy. After the team had left Lewis three,shots were heard, and it ,is supposed tjxese were the shots which resulted in his death. Jt is supposed he was murdered for money, as not enpugh money was found to pay his lave to Nebraska. In a n't of despondency, caused by ill health, >Toh» Theurer, aged 07, of Keokuk, coinssittecl suicide by shooting himself in the head- His wife straggled desperately to take the pistol from him, nut \va,s powerless. At Davenport the factory of ^he Jlet- " " Metal, Wheel Company burned The big beef house trf the Hammond Packing Company ftt South Omaha. ? which was 200 feet square Slid five stories high, btiffted cffi the 2nd. ThreS men lost their lives because of the fire. The loss will reach $350,000. Insurance, $280,000. Three hundred and fifty men nrc thrown oiit of emplos'ment. The plant will be rebuilt at once.

Seven persons were smothered to death itt a tenement house fire iii Kc\V York. • . Two 'Georgia farmers foitght with axes and each fell dead with the other's axe in his brain. Secretary Ore-sham has protested to Germany against the prohibition of American 'meats entering German ports. He says proper investigation will show the meats to be pure and not diseased. Advices from Argentine Republic stole that n recent earthquake coin- pletcly destroyed the city of La Rofa, capital of the province of that name, and that the village of Del Arbordon was swallowed up. It is estimated that 2,000 lives were lost in the dis^ turbed district and that 30,000 people are homeless. A Berlin dispatch says: Prince Von Hohenlohe-Schillingfurst, as the result of his conference with the emperor at Potsdam, has accented- the appointment of chancellor to succeed General Von Caprivi and also the portfolio of president of the Prussian council of ministers, vacated by the resignation of Count Eulenberg, ; ExrCtfa-ndpllar Von Caprivi, of Gcr- Scntuuyi sa!y.s that he resigned because of Jiis,ina,bility, to a'gree with the emperer ''"' ' fftot. 1.— The the following i'a\ia'".©ouiit' fiuionbe'rg in their attitude of repression of socialists.

I returned to Chic ago about the end of April, very weak and still suffering, and grew very 'much WOISD. My joints were fearfully swollen and I suffered great pain.
