From these reports shall be drawn the warrants in payment of the men, "This act shall take effect in each state as soon as said state has made provision by law for organizing, clothing, and equipping and maintaining of the companies prescribed," ' A Builditig Needed by the State for Such Contributions. Some months ago it was stated that the private library of the late United States Senator James F. Wilson might find its way into the state historical department We understand that his family have decided that this collection shall dome to the department if it Can be provided proper care—room and cases. This library comprises about everything that has been published by the general government from the beginning, including all the Annals, Debates and Proceedings of Congress, complete set of the American state pa* pers, reports of all the great scientific surveys, special reports, miscellaneous publications, etc., etc. For historical purposes and reference this Wilson collection, consisting of unbroken sets of valuable works, will always possess the highest value. It could serve no better purpose than that of being made accessible to the people of Iowa at the capitol. Hon. James F, Wilson, it is well known, contributed to the public library at Fairfield—the bright little city where he resided—several thousand valuable books, said Mr. Fleming in last night's Capital, many of which Were saved from his regular allowance as representative and United States senator, and many paid for out of his .own private means. Since his widely lamented death, the library have inserted on the inside of each cover a little printed slip containing a fine engraved portrait of Mr. Wilson and a brief tribute to him as the donor of the volume.. This tribute is as tasteful as it is just. What better monument could the people at his home erect to one whose friendship for them was so unboundingly generous and well directed?

Hia successors took tbe ftitle of'patriarch, later of catholicos, and ^.ejected by the bishops, The Bible was translated into Armenian about '431 A. P. The Armenian, church was part of tbe Greek church till the year 401, wlieja its cathojicos solemnly an* nulled, in full synpd, tbe decrees of the council of Cbelcedoq. Since that time /; ONE ON AIi6<!>NA.? , h^itemore Ohampion: An amus- ncident iff related ,at;;the expense ,ona!s unfortunate Wcatibtfi^owW ,ln the woods some where -i between the Milwaukee'depot and West Berid.> A young commercial traveler on his third trip through ^tnis territory, stepped aboard the train at Wesley and finding a fellow traveler with whom he was acquainted, the time was passed very pleasantly till they reacbed Algona.' When the train was stopped at that depot out nearly to Sexton', his acquaintance was getting ready to leave the car and said: "Don't you make Algona?" "Oh i o," said he' glancing sarcastically across the street at the old brick creamery, "I don't make any towns smaller than Wesley or Whittemore." His friend then informed him that Algona was quite a place and induced him to stop off. Great was his surprise and chagrin when they got down town, and he proposed a walk down the street, seeing the joke was at his expense, where they got something warming with sugar in it. He "makes" Algona every trip now.
