The average number under care during the month was 590. Dr. A. J. Applegute, for many years a leading physician of Indianola, died. Saturday morning of. pneumonia. He had been practicing medicine there for over twenty years and was quite' successful, and as a man was upright and .esteemed by his fellow citizens, At Fairfield Judge T. M. Fee sentenced John Ryan to the penitentiary for a term of five years for assaulting Detective Harrison with intent,to-commit murder. On the charge of breaking and entering a tool house lie plead guilty and was given six months. Cassius C. Macdonald, who was. married at Davenport February 8, with one or two women claiming to be his undi- vorced wives, has sued the Democrat, of that city, for $50,000, cm the grounds, of libel. The Democrat has- retained the best attorneys in the city and cheerfully awaits developments. , > ,• '•• It is reported that Adjutant General- Prime has written Col. J. H. Guest,', commanding the Second regiment, I. N. G., that he has decided to transfer Company H from Burlington to- Char.i- \on, taking the franchise from Burling- IOE. This has aroused 'oppos'itibn^ at' Uurlinpton, and an attempt —\vilT""Be made to retain the franchise and organize a new company. .' c r ' /'"V' The expert accountant who;has been examining the books of D.Vp, Markham, the defaulting clerk qf Clinton county, finished his wqr^i and reported to the county commissioners. I'he report was not made public, but i t Is learned that the defalcation will reach nearly $10,000. The commissioners ordered action against the bondsmen. ' MarkHam's whereabouts .are. Unknown. • • .^State Auditor McCarthy^ Saturday turned into the state treasury the largest check he has made out since he assumed the duties of the office. It was for $10,509.50, and was the fees earned during the month of February. The taxes paid into the treasury by the insurance companies up to Saturday amounts to $99,243.81 and there are yet several companies to pay up. This will bring the total up to about $115,000 by April 1. The fees earned by the department during February of last year Avere $14.710. Sefert Larson mysteriously disap. . peared from his his home in Ft. Dodge recently. A warrant was out for his arrest On the charge of rape upon the person of Miss Pearl Jones. This sudden disappearance on the part of Larson renews the sensation that has surrounded him for the past two months, and proves the guilt of the charge. The person whom he is charged with raping is a 15-year old girl of a woman who herself does not bear the best of characters, and who has persisted in hanging around the Larson home. A. O. Gates and H. D. Rosenberger, of Ladora, are thought to have been lost in northern Minnesota, whither they had gone hunting. When last seen they left Scott's camp near Motley, Minnesota, about December 11. All efforts to secure further tidings of them have failed. Mr. Gates was in the pump and wind-mill business, and had his team and wagon. He leaves a wife and two small children. The other man is single. The Knights of Pythias, of which both are members, are making every effort to secure information concerning them or learn their whereabouts. Capt. A. E. Webb, a pioneer resident of Hardin county, died at Eldora re* cently. Mr. Webb had been confined to his room for the past eight weeks, anc steadily grew worse until the robust constitution was completely broken down. The immediate cause of demise was kidney trouble, superinduced by a paralytic stroke, sustained last week. Allen Webb was born in Hamilton county, Ohio, March 15,1837. Septem ber 33, 1857, he came to Eldora, and has ever since, with the exception o: one year spent in California, been resident of Iowa. With the death of Captain Webb, Hardin eoxinty loses a whose record as a soldier and citi is worth emulation. John L. Crali, of Farmjngton, was found dead in bed in a Jiurlingtpn hotel, having been asphyxiated. He was 50 years old. Wm. Fail, who was sent up to Anamosa for robbjng the m/ails, left for tieorgiana, Ala., a few days ago, happy, was a colored man and had a high hat, kid gloves and a big flaming peektifl.

It has the ears and tail of a cat, but its head and eyes are distinc- ively canine. Its mother is a snow- vhite poodle dog. The temperance people of Sioux City gave another twist to their fight against the saloons! by commencing jroceedings against John Mander- the saloonkeeper whb so roiighiy assaulted and shamefully abused the women, of ,theW. G.^U. some days ago, charging him with tid- atiotts of the present liquor latV and citing htm to appear in court for .cdn- terapt in violating an old injunction under the prohibito'ry law. It is claimed that in case a saloonkeeper violates the present law in any degree becomes subject to tthe provision's erf the old law. Manderscheid was under perpetual injunction not to sell liquors. Parties made illegal purchases at his saloon and -have commenced this proceeding. They expect to apply the rule to others if the court sustains this. C. H. Urown filed information in Justice Gouldin's court at Cre'ston.. .for ;he.arrest of J. Jones, charging him with assault. Both men are prominent iarmers near Kent, and the difficulty which caused the arrest was very irivial, Brown was on his way to ;own and when within four miles of •he cit'y he was overtaken by Jones, who undertook to pass him. Brown whipped itp his team, but'as he did so Tones drove up ^by'the side of his bifggy arid a free-for-all race was .ndulged in for a short distance. Jones' semper got..the''be'st of 'him and he Kea'ch'ed over and' struck Brown a . -/ • ' " -• t '" . f stinging blow oji the head with the butto end of his whip. A warrant was issued for his arrest by Constable Schpfield... He plead guilty and paid :he'fine and costs. \5Qri'the morning.of the Oth- two' des- peradtfe's" entered the State bank at Adel and commanded^ Cashier. S. M.,' hand *over the' money on liand. Mr. Leach declined and promptly grabbed the money on the counter, threw it into the vault and locked it. The robbers, meantime, had begun firing and Mr. Leach and C. D. Bailey, a merchant, were dangerously wounded. A crowd began to .gather and the robbers grabbed a sack of silver and tried to escape. En route to their team they shot Postmaster Barr in the wrist, 3V M. Byers in the head and arm and Cecil Decker, a boy, in the arm, hand and shoulder. Reaching their conveyance, they -drove west and south and disappeared. A posse was organized, which overtook the robbers near O'Neal's Ford, south of Adel. One of them took refuge in a barn and another in a brush heap. The latter was captured, and the pursuers compelled him to set fire to the barn. His companion soon came out, but refused to surrender and was shot to death. The remaining robber, who gave his name as C. W. Crawford, said the dead man's name was Lander Wilkins and that they lived at Patterson, from which place they had driven on the previous pay, stopping at a farm house over night. Crawford is now in jail at Adel. Davenport is wildly excited and deeply iterested by the exposure of Prof. Cassius C. Macdonald, hypnotist, in his role of bigamist. Last June Prof. Macdonald, who registers from Bombay, India, came to Davenport, giving exhibitions at a pleasure resort near Rock Island, and later organizing a class in psychology or hypnotism. He posed as a single man, was smooth and suave, and had the address of a man of the world, and took well. Twenty or more of the blooded people of Davenport became his students. He had made a deep impression on Mrs. Margaret E, Brearley, and the seances were held at her home. When wonder^ ful surgical operations were, being performed. in different parts of the country on patients in the hypnotic sleep several months ago, Prof. Macdonald saw his chance and bloomed out as a hypnotic healer. About November he went to Marengo and there he established himself as a full-fledged suggestive healer, Then he went to Grinnell, making that place his home, but a few weeks ago. He pursued his vocation of suggestive healer there. February 8 he returned to Davenport and was married to Mrs. Brearley, then left at once for the south, but soon returned to Grinnell. The announcement of his marriage reached Chicago, and in a short time a letter came back, signed Mrs. C. C. Macdonald, 476 West Randolph street, advising everybody tha«t she wa,s the man's wife, and warning all to Ipok out for him. There will probably be fun when the Chicago wife confronts him. The latter is after him, and will spare no pains to land him in the penitentiary. In the trial of Mayor Hillis, of Des Moines, for misconduct in office before the city council sitting as a jury, he was found not guilty. Jnsp,,ect,or Shea ? Of Chicago, has identified J. JJ, White, alias Wilson, the wounded Crrisvvold bank burger, as Tp,ny Butler, a noted cracksman of Pittsburg.

The disease was brought from Hot Springs, Ark., by the corpse of a citizen of VMarysvillp. .Twenty cases are reported and the sbhopli? closed and the city quarantined. Rev. Peter Hoitst. until recently associate pastor of the St. John de Nepomuks Bohemian Catholic church of St. Louis, has disappeared from the city, leaving a large number of creditors among his former parishoners. The amount alleged to be owed is 83.000. The .most destructive natural gas explosion disaster of the Indiana gas bel't v occurred at Anderson on tnemorn- ing of. the 5th. A $75,000 business block on the court house square was blown all over the central part of the city. Fire followed the explosion, which was like an earthquake, and the remains of the debris began burning fiercely. The entire fire department was called out and prevented the fire from reaching the new court house. The loss on the buildings and contents is total, and will reach $400,000.. The fronts of all the business houses in the neighborhood of the explosion were demolished, paved streets ripped open and telephone cables torn down.

Washington March 7.—The official statement as to the total appropriations of the last session of congress have not yet been prepared, and none will be given out until toward the close of the present week, when they will be put forth by Chairman Sayers of the house committee on appropriations and by Representative Cannon. It is thought, however, that the figures will not vary much from those pent out when congress adjourned. The total will not be far from $496.000,000 for the entire session, and assuming this to be correct, the total appropriation for 1895 and 1896 combined would be $988,230,685, that for 1895 being $492,230,680.
