The storm lasted 20 minutes and the hail stones ran from two to ight Inches in circumference. Tops >f buggies, cushions, and even the floors were cut through and riddled, Water poured through roofs as though they were selves and damaged vast quantl- ies of goods. The university buildings were the chief sufferers. Director Sage, of the Iowa weather >ureau, says that 1,500 men could find •emunerative employment in 10 coun- ies in southwestern Iowa. Kelly's army could all have had good jobs ight near Council Bluffs if anyone would vouch for their trustworthiness. It is said that "Gen." Randall's .aughter rides the white horse that vas engaged for Gov. Boies at the vorld's fair opening. The governor at on it a minute and it cost the state 50. Bagley of Mason City rode the least out and it would do nothing but rot or run and was either ahead or iehind its place all the time. If Miss Randall goes to Washington on that lorse she will earn more than she will iver receive even if Coxeyism should riumph. _______ The state convention of the Iowa State Temperance alliance has been lalled to meet June 26 at Des Moines, in the opening day of the prohibition tate convention, which also meets "une 20 and 27. Father Nugent of Des Moines is a tudent of social problems. Speaking if the cause of Kellyism he said to the Capital: "In my opinion, the immediate cause* is the lack of employment. The primary causes, I think, ire due to our rapid and high pressure ivilization, and the invention of labor aving machines. Men increase while he demand for men decreases. If lorses were rational, self-supporting jeings, we would have an army of lorses going to Washington, declaring hat electricity had robbed them of he means of subsistence. It really las taken their place, but with horses he demand regulates the supply, and .his settles that problem." "Gen." Kelly was to speak at Drake university and a big audience gathered, but the speaking failed to occur. Gen. Drake had telegraphed from lenterville to stop it. President Aylesworth is in sympathy with Kelly and may lose his position. In the May Midland B. F. Tillinghast inishes the story of Iowa's contribution to Russia during the famine. It was shipped in the Tynehead and the cargo ionsisted of 95,650 bushels of corn in bulk, 21,201 bushels in bags, 402 sacks of meal, 781 sacks of flour, 10 bags of wheat, 9 bags of rye, etc. Besides these 51,160 pounds of flour, or 260 aarrels, were shipped by 40 Iowa towns in the steamer Missouri, Cedar FtUls sent $1,038 in cash, direct, and $4,959 was received too late to be spent for corn and was sent in cash, and probably $5,000 more was sent by individuals. Mr. Tillinghast concludes that Iowa sent more in the aggregate than any other state, and that the actual number of contributors in Iowa was much larger than in any other state. Some fourteen years ago Judge Deemer, who goes on the supremo bench, was the crack base ball catcher at the state university. It is sale he has kept up his practice and is all but a pi-ofessional yet. He was the youngest district judge in Iowa when first chosen, and lacks somewhat o: being forty now. The state firemen's tournament is to be held at Sioux City, June 23, fintihg the satin copies of the Sawkeye at Burlington the yeaf efore. The Carroll Herald, publishes an interesting reminiscence of Frank Hatton: Hattqn almost worshiped General Grant. When Iowa was ablaze with Elaine enthusiasm in 1880 Hatton's paper stood squarely by the hero of Appomattox. When on bis return from his trip around the world General Grant held a publii reception at Burlington, Hatton' supporters worked up a gathering o mammoth proportions. The next day Mr, and Mrs. Grant read the accoun of the demonstrations in the Hawkeye printed on the richest satin. Bu neither Grant nor Elaine was electee president. The fated Garfleld carriec the day, but Hatton's star was in th ascendant. When Arthur succeedei to the executive chair, vacated by th assassination of the president, SJatto: was made first assistant postmaste general. It was charged by the demo cratio press and some of Biaioe' f pleads wk94»»Q$ like Button, bis appo^lipjit waj\ft9.

The Armstrong Journal reports that he house of Mr. Fits;, cashier of the tate bank at Gormania, was struck by ightning Sunday and Mrs. Fitz was ndly stunned, but it is thought not eriously injured. No particular clara- ge was'done to the house. The lighting came down the stove pipe and >assed out through the wall, making a iole about the size of a lead pencil. Qunrton for .Tuclfro.
