Gear, of Iowa, was stricken ^vith apople&y at his room in the Portland hotel in Washington on the 25th. His condition at last accounts was touch improved, but his physician entertains doubts as to the ultimate ire* suit of the attack. ^A nre at Monticello destroyed, the Prader hardware store and stock; company's loss, 36)000, insurance $4,400, and also the W: Frohn brick building containing a stbck of harness, loss $64100, insurance $3,500.

The men are neighbors, and the affray was the outcome of a feud of long standing. Murphy claims Connell came on his farm and rushed at him with a club, and that he shot in self- defense. He came to town and gave himself up to the sheriff, who decided to await developments before making the arrest. An examination showed forty-seven shots were in Council's side. John Starks has discovered a new lead mine which is located just northwest of the present big mine owned by County Clerk Sheean near Anamosa, It is not known who the land belongs to, but the lead ore is there in paying quantities. The industrial agent of the Milwaukee road was in Anamosa recently and examined the situation, and if it continues to be a paying investment that company may run a sidetrack there. A car load of ore will be sent to some leading smelts to see what per cent is pure lead. ! D. B. Bliss owns a tract of land at Iowa Falls on which hone stone was discovered a few weeks ago, and now he has discovered the fact that beneath the hone stone there is a grade of marble second to none in the United States. It admits of a brilliant polish, and the quarry is worth a good big ''fortune. It is the most important discovery which has been made in Iowa for years. The demand for good marble is far in excess of the supply ; and Mr. Bliss has refused a small fortune for an option on the land. Mr. Shoemaker, who was instrumental in ge t- ting for Webster City her $30,000 shoe factory, and also its canning factory, has taken the matter up with Mr. Bliss and a stock company will be organized at pnce to develop the find, A Webster City dispatch says: Mrs, G, P, Cook, a frail little woman of 30, with many friends in her immediate neighborhood, was most unmercifully whipped pver the head and shoulders, great welts being raised and the bipod flowing copiously, by a neighbor, one L.

Harris •used a common btiggy whip, and indignation over his action is running high, : whipping occurred at the Harris several miles north of this place, and grow out pf a questJPn of the ovvn- ership of a dozen tnrkeys which was decided in the courts here a week ago, Th e turkeys were at Harris' house and, as the cpurt decreed they belpnged tp Mrs. Cook, she >vent after them, npt getting the turkeys, but getting the whipping instead.

At an early morning hour the daugh* tef of Captain Warner, df Keokiik, Was awakened by a noise in her room. The house was roused and a thorough search from cellar to garret was made. A window was found open and it was thought the intruder had escaped. At length Mrs. Warfaer's woman instinct prompted her to look under her daughter's bed, and a man was found there. He would not come out, and Captain Warner stood guard for thirty minutes before word could be got to the police, Before the arrival of the officers the man crawled out, and Capt, Warner shot him. He crawled back and remained until the police came, when he was conveyed to jail. He is a powerful negro, calling himself Peter Jackson. The pistol ball took effect in the tip of his nose, and ranged up and back, lodging behind the right eye, which had to be cut out to enable the exiraction of the ball. He may d'e. The expulsion of Supervisor Strange from the Woodbury county board of supervisors appears to be only the beginning of the sensation in connection with the fraudulent disposal of public funds. The citizens committee which originated this inquiry and which has prosecr.ted the same from the beginning all alone, has found that among the other crimes • resorted to by the gang that robbed the county of thousands of dollars, was that of forgery. Bills were made out in the name of persons who had no connection with the county affairs, or fictitious names, and receipts were signed by members of the gang. This has been discovered in going over the warrants which are alleged to be fraudulent and are under surveillance of the court. The committee will release from injunction a few of the warrants questioned, but the most of them will be held, and the amount is not less than $6,000. A good portion of this amount is believed to represent cold steals from the county by forgery and otherwise. The forgeries were for amounts of from §50 to $500, and there have been found about seventy-five of them. About $5,000 was stolen from the poor fund last winter. Ex-County Attorney Bevmg- ton has demurred to the indictments against him, and will try to have them all quashed. The safe in the Star drug store at West Liberty was blown open ami $120 secured. The burglars boarded a westbound Eock Island train, paying fare to Iowa City. Meantime the robbery was discovered. The Iowa City police were telegraphed to watch out for the men. They, however, landed on the outskirts of the town, boarded an east-bound passenger and paid fare to Davenport. The conductor thought they looked suspicious and took the earliest opportunity to telegraph to the Davenport police to meet the train. At West Liberty the train was boarded by the marshal, deputy sheriff, and deputized citizens. The party asked for the suspicious 'passengers and the men were>pointed out. The conductor then advised them to shadow them to Uayenpoi't before attempting 'their capture, but the advice was refused. Three officers approached with revolvers and said they . wanted to search them. The robbers parleyed till one .raised a window and threw out money and papers, then each drew a brace of revolvers and held the officers off, who were afraid to shoot. Conductor Don- alnie ran to the express car for weapons, and on the way tied a knot in the bell cord, but the robbers managed to pull it and the train slowed up, The robbers fired a volley over tlie heads of the passengers, retreated to the rear platform and jumped, off. One threw a stick of dynamite under the train midway of the smoking' car, which smashed the windows and put out the lights in two cars, but injured no one. They evidently desired to derail the train to assist in their escape. They then made their escape in the timber, The train had run nearly to Moscow, Eight officers were awaiting the train in Pavenport, and five would have boarded jt at the city limits. The marshal returned to West Liberty to organize a pursuing party as soon, as possible, and a posse of fifteen men armed with Winchesters and shotguns started out for the robbers. The robbers surrendered and were taken tp West Liberty and Jpdged in jail, Fifty cents a year, The Pes Mojnes, Twjce-a-Week News. Try it. PP you wea,r shirts? Order of Tilden? Pes Mpines,.

US — Mrs. Riette Pike, a small, inofiensive looking woman, is under arrest in this city on charge of burglary, and she admits her guilt. She made repeated visits to • tho house of Mrs. James R. Ives, sister of Mayor Booth of Highlands, in the absence of the family, and looted the place of all portable articles of value. She took the plunder to the residence of Mrs. Bertha K. Shaw, a wealthy friend with whom she was staying, and packed it in trunks, which she then sent to the depot. Mrs. Pike is the wife of II. D. Pike, at one time private secretary of ex-President Smith of the Denver & Rio Grande railroad and now living in California. Mrs. Pike gave poverty as an excuse for her conduct. Mrs. Shaw disclaimed all knowledge of her friend's actions. Mrs. Pike was arrested several years ago on a charge of setting fire to Mrs. Shaw's house, which was burned, but was discharged for want of proof. HOPE IS ABANDONED. Lord Randolph Churchill's Death Is No"W Near. LONDON, Dec. S8. — Lord Randolph Churchill had brief intervals of consciousness yesterday. His wife is devoted in her attention to him, rarely leaving his bedside. Dr Keith, one of the physicians in attendance on Lord Randolph Churchill, at 10 o'clock said the weakness of the patient was slowly increasing, that there was absolutely no hope, and that nothing could save the sufferer. His death was merely a question of a short time. A sad feature was that every effort made in behalf of the patient only tended to prolong such agong as he is now capable of feeling. tWIIteft firom «tf «! up* tdwl tdttgfti fftst He was set ttfott try Cftaiflts Jolifl MttffBlI and Wini&ffi jB&nioiis 8f SfOWn.- ¥ &fid held his tftiSSne'f tht-6'6 shots fVdnl his fttfi, -666 6f which tots cmt Gall&fhef's rigtit eye and ftnothef Iddged ftt the .base. «l the ofaith Yhe other man then seiged the p-olicetoftfl's club find pistol and af tef kttockiiig him dowtt shot twice ftt nifn, Ofie bullet struck the poile'entan^s afw tthd the other inflicted a flesh wOflnd oh the b;ody.
