THE WEEK'S IOWA HEWS Judge Thos. 8, Wilson held the first terra of court in Iowa oh th second Monday oi November, 1838 He died at Dubuque last week, aged 81 years. ^^.^^^ Alice Stomer, a young girl of Musca tine, became so Infatuated with one of the performers in Singling Bros, circus that she ran away with him when the show left there. She was captured at Mt. Pleasant and has been returned to her home, At the state medical meeting las week Dr. Finlayson said: "Wo are never secure from .cancer, and although it is a disease of old age, it is a disease from which no one can consider him self free. I have seen men in perfeci health suddenly afflicted. One thing is certain, and that is—it is a disease of debility and depression." The Des Moines Capital tells an interesting story of the Sixth Iowa and Capt. Saunders'. When the Sixth Iowa left the rendezvous at Burlington in the spring of '61, their first stop was made at Fort Madison, where they were to take the cars for Keokuk. They camped on the banks of the Mississippi and had no commissary stores to amount to anything. They were to live on the contribution plan. Their camp was near the lumber mills at Fort Madison, and as the men wanted wood they helped themselves to the plentiful supply that was near the mills. The owner of the wood appeared on the scene and ordered the men to stop taking it. The men were somewhat demoralized and hardly :nevv what to do, when Captain Saunders mounted the wood, pile and shouted: "Attention, Company El Take all the wood you wantl" And .he entire company proceeded to obey ihe command. On the bloody Held of Shiloh, when the Sixth Iowa was be- ng cut to pieces and badly demoral zed, Captain Saunders put enthusiasm nto the entire regiment by shouting: ' Attention, Company El Take all the wood you wantP- The biggest egg yarn cotncs from ihe Ocheydan Press: Ocheydon has a hen that lays two perfect eggs at a lime—an, egg within an egg—and has been known to lay four . in one day. The first egg of this description found vas supposed to be a freak, but it has now become a regular occurrence, and owner of the hen has .concluded ihat it is the "nature of the beast." The inner egg is about the size of a lickory nut, with a hard shell. The Iowa State band has been secured for the state fair. Among new eatures this year will be an exhibit >y the Des Moines Kennel club, and a shooting contest by the Highland Park gun club under the management of Chas. Budd. Senator Wasburn of Minnesota says Allison is the coming man: "General Harrison has not the slightest show of again being nominated. As for Reed or McKinley they represent the ex- ,reme protectionist faction and for that •eason the nomination of either is practically impossible. The candidate ho republican party should take up s a man from the west who has the upport of the great agricultural tates and who can harmonize all actions—I refer to Senator Allison if Iowa." The Express says a few lawless ellows at Monticello, who have been •oportod to the state fish commissioner or prosecution, have a novel method if killing fish in the Maquoketa. They fill jugs with unslacked lime which hey tie to stones, and sink in the iver. The chemical action which •esults from the union of the lime and water explodes the jug with great orce, and all the fish in the vicinity, ig and little, are killed, The big nes are selected, and the small ones are allowed to float away. Judge Wilson, who died last week, vrote the opinion in the first case eported in the Iowa reports. It was .ecided in July, 1838, by the supreme ourt of the territory of Jowa consist- ng of Hon. Chas. Mason, chief justice, nd Joseph Williams and Thos, S, Wilson, associate judges. The opinion vas written by Judge Wilson though ssued in the name of Chief Justice ,'Iason, In this case it was decided for he first time in the United States that slave entering a free state by consent f his master became free forever. Judge Utt tells an interesting story f how Austin, Adams got on the upreme bench by accident. In, 1873 udge Miller was nearing the end of his first term as supreme judge of owa. In that year he wrote an pinion that angered Seward Smith, hen a prominent lawyer a.nd p,Qjjtj.piaij hint entitled to it, As the state eon* vention would not meet until th spring of "?S Smith took his time to select a suitable candidate. He hac met Shubal P» Adams 6f jbubuque, and knew of his ability as a lawyer and ,on the stump and finally concluded that Adams was the man to defeat Miller. Smith did not remember Adams* first name and asked a fellow attorney what it was. The attorney knew Austin Adams but did not think of ShubalP, and told Smith the first name of the Dubuque Adams was Austin. Smith wrote Austin Adams telling him of the determination to de feat Miller and asked permission to use his name. Adams consented. Smith did not find out till too late to change that there were two Adams, and so pitched in and Austin Adams was nominated, and sat on the bench 12 years. . .'. Bob Ingersoll refuses to bo caught by autograph hunters on any pretext. But an Eldora man outwitted him. He wrote to Bob: "I understand that at one time you were acting pastor of a church at Peora, III. Is this true?" He wrote on the back of the letter: " No, sir; I have never been the pastor of any church, nor am I a member of any church.—B. G. Ingersoll." : John W. Wright, who edits the column of Notes and Queries in the State Register, lives at Knoxville, is 34 years old, is the son of a coal miner, and was a coal miner himself. He left school at 12 years of age, but kept reading, and now besides his work on the Register he edits a column for the St. Louis Globe-Democrat and two columns for the St. Louis Republic every week. He also edits a column in the New York World. The Capital says: • "He has gathered about him at Knoxville a wonderful library of books, that are useful to him in his work. Ee regularly receives the public documents issued by the government and by all the states of the union. He owns all the encyclopedias txnd receives aundreds of publications." He has one jook in press and has written another, works six hours a day in his library, and collects bugs for recreation. PLEAS-LAKE PARE, IOWA. Season of 1SO<1.
