Every other reader of the Herald is as much astonished as you are. That is the secret of advertising." Bonnet- became famous as the purchaser of " Dexter," when ho held the trotting record, nnd later of "Maud S." His stables and horses are the best in the United States. He is rated among the millionaires, all made by shrewd management of the Ledger, and by the most audacious advertising known in his time. Half page and full page advertisements were unknown until he introduced them and they went all over Europe. He also introduced the practice of repeating the same nn- nouncement all through a column or .pnge, since very common. Prairie 2 Ramsay .') Klverdale 2 Seneca 3 Swea 4 Sherman 2 Fnion.

At the state field-day contests at Iowa City last week the United States -college record was broken on a hop, step, and jump. Wheeler of Mt. Vernon coyered 46 feet and 9 inches. The state university won the cup, Iowa college of Grinnell coming second. The best records were as follows: One. hundred yard dash, time 10 1-5 seconds; two-mile bicycle race, time 6:19; 220 yard dash, time 23 seconds; mile dash, time 4:49 2-5; running jump, distance 22 3-10 feet; running high jump, 5 feet and 6 inches; 440 yard dash, time 49 seconds; mile walk, time 7:56 3-5, throwing- 16 pound hammer, 93 feet and 6 inches; pole vault, 9 feet and 10 inches; half mile dash, time 2:5}. Seven of the University boys rode all night after the contest to Chicago and entered the next day against 11 other colleges there, coming out third. The Inter Ocean said of them: "The State University of Iowa's showing was remarkable. With a team of only seven men, all of whom had engaged in the state collegiate games of Iowa on the previous day and had traveled all night to participate in these games, her score fell only two points behind that of Wisconsin and three first prizes were won by her." The Times picks out the University's runner and says: "The star of the day was little John Crum of Iowa, who took down both of the sprints in impressive style. The boy is still in his teens and if he developcs, as he should, will be a hard man for any of the eastern cracks to start against. He is beautifully built for the game, and his trainer, the veteran Moulton, is sure that he will soon have a world beater." And the Inter Ocean adds: "His sprinting was phenomenal, his chief fault being in his poor starts. His form could not be questioned, as his movement was machine-like in its smoothness, and after each race he showed no exhaustion. His time in the 100 yards dash was 101-5 seconds, Crum won the 100 and 220 yard dash, Cox of Iowa City won the one mile bicycle race, and Dey, a son of the railway commissioner, won the running high kick. The report that Mr. Morling of Em- metsburfj-, who is a candidate to succeed Judge fjnrr, is a democrat seems to have no foundation. The Reporter states positively that ho is and has been a republican, and the Estherville Republican says on this point: " Attorney Morling of Emmetsburg was here last week on legal business. He is naturally somowhatput out at being mistaken for a democrat, but assures us that while he has never been active or noisy in politics he has always been a republican, as were his parents and other near relatives. The only part he has taken in politics since coming to Iowa was os a delegate to the Judicial convention which nominated Judge Carr four years ago. This surely ought to settle the question of Mr. Morling's politics. As a practicing lawyer and student of law he certainly has no superior at the district bar today, and his candidacy is deserving of the greatest consideration." Cyrenus Cole of the Register is to address a students' association at Pelln next Wednesday. He will give them a good one. The Courier last week received a letter containing a number of weather- beaten, sun-colored clippings on the tariff from its editorial columns of a few years ago. The sender signed himself " a democrat" and said in substance that he had carefully preserved these blessed assurances of better times coming, and had been •watching for the better times. As there ceemed to be some delay, or hitch as it were, he wrote to inquire when and how they were to arrive, and why pending their arrival he should not vote the republican ticket and get back to the days of Benjamin and Grandpa's hat. Wo understand that in the cool of the day our worthy postmaster can be seen with uncovered head mopping his brow with a Thurman bandanna saved from the wreck, and pondering on this mighty problem, and swearing because the paper the Courier is printed on lasts so well. He will hereafter when indulging in prophecies use ink that will fade inside of three months. The Upper Des Moines Editorial association will meet at Spirit Lake Aug. 8 and 4. It will be one of the best and probably the biggest meeting yet held. There are six candidates now out for Congressman Perkins' shoes in the Eleventh. A NOTED EDITOU. Bobert Bonner of New York Ledger fame attended the Scotch-Irish congress at Des Moines last week. He bought the Ledger in 1851, and since that time has been the most successful advertiser America has produced excepting P, T. Barnum. The Ledger was an insignificant commercial journal when he took it. He began from the first to substitute home reading for stock reports, engaged Mrs, Sigourney and Fanny Pern to write for it, and with the latter'a "hundred dollar a column" story opened his remarkable career. His second venture was giving Edward Everett $10,000 for & series of articles called the "Mt. Vernon Papers." Greeley's autobiography, Beecher's novel, Grant's life by his father, and ether notable productions followed, and with them came a series of advertisements which astonished the country, Bonner began with column announcements |n the New York dailies, then went to half pages, pages, and Anally compelled the Herald to issue a quadruple sheet, for which single issue he paid $2,000. His advertising cost him as high as $37,000 in one week, and $150,000 in one year. It was bis *2,OOQ advertisement bad ap- in the Herald that a friend called on him thinking he was mentally and suggested that a ten The Carroll Herald reviews at length the hearing of charges of plagiarism against Prof. Wallace of the state dairy school, and says that there is no evidence whatever to support them, Mr. Hungerford is one of the directors who conducted the investigation. wwW have told tlie public all tbere was to be told, Bonner put the secret of successful advertising i» a nu,t ifo$l\ when b-e ans»rere4; *> I »ee how Jt Wten you py go<ejj Mend, The Cherokee Insane asylum is at a standstill. The legislature gave the commission authority to pay $12,000 for 820 acres of land, but not to go in debt. The land is not forthcoming for the money, and the commissioners have decided to aot buy any land but to wait for the next legislature. If Cherokee cannot get a site for a public institution at nearly $40 an acre, there are plenty of towns that can and that ought to have tho chance. The taxpayers are getting tired of this fleecing the public whether it comes in getting two prices for land for county highways, farming a state legislature, or having rivers and harbors improved by congress. A suit has been begun at Dubuque before Judge Shiras asking that a receiver be appointed for the American Investment company. This is the Emmetsburg institution managed by the Ormsbys. Eastern creditors claim that it is insolvent. At Emmetsburg they claim that it is financially sound, and the attempt to get a receiver will be resisted. The Capital took a look at Dr. John Hall at the Scotch-Irish meeting at Des Moines last week and remarked "everything cornea to the man who weights," Dr. Hall is a massive big man with Scotch written all over his face and Irish showing in his tongue. He preaches in the most noted Presbyterian church in New York, refuses to take in new members but sends them to poorer churches where they are needed, tells his members that he will not have them sit under his preaching year after year and not show signs of leading better lives, is a conservative in doctrine, and one of the great men of hia geueration. THE MONTH'S MAGAZINES, The June Midland Monthly is all that was promised. Judge Hubburd and Gen. Weaver discuss the Kelly army, S. H. M. Byers tells a thrilling story of the fight at Chickawauga, and Henry Wallace, editor of the Iowa Homestead, has an interesting account of that combination known as the Scotch-Irish, which has furnished so many noted men, and which is to celebrate »n Des Moines next week. The first prize story and prize poem are given, the $tory of the Scandinavian college at Decorafe ft told, poems and sketches —'" out tfte number, A very excellent life of Iowa's first senator, The magazine Is excellently illustrated, A portrait of Gen. Sherman being the frontispiece. The second volume fs just beginning and we should be pleased to send in a lot of new subscriptions. -M- Scribner's Magazine for June contains an article by John Heard, Jr., which for the first time in accessible form, in English, tells the tragical story of Maximilian and Mexico in the light of many documents Which have recently been published in France. This dramatic recital of an episode which the writer calls one of Napoleon's day-dreams, gives, in that picturesque style which the author has shown in his stories, a perfectly clear account of the event from its conception to the execution of Maximilian. The true Inside history of the part played by the United States, the author thinks, will probably never bo thoroughly known bo- cause there were few documents and the real instruction were given by word of mouth by men who have passed away. Mr. Heards's narrative Is enriched with a series of striking pictures by MarchettI and Gilbert Gaul, -4--I- As befits the season, the Juno A'ilantic has a restless air about it. A record of a summer spent in the Scillles by Dr. J. W. White, the eminent Philadelphia physician, followed by a shipwreck-suggesting poem. The Gravedigger, by Bliss Carman: Mr. Stodtiard Dewey writes of The End of Tortoni's, the famous Parisian cafe, closed a year ago; Dr. Albert Shaw explains how Hamburg learnt her lesson even before the cholera struck her, and now is one of the most perfectly protected cities; Mrs. Cavazza gives a bright account of the marionette theatre in Sicily. The June Century contains a number of salient features. One of the most interesting is an authoritative account of Edison's Invention of the Klneto-Phono- graph, by Antonia and W. 1C. L. Dicksou, Mr. Dickson having been associated with Mr. Edison in working out this invention. There is also an Introduction by the Inventor, and a portrait of him from a recent photograph, together with examples of the pictures shown by this new invention for reproducing to the eye the motions of a given scene as the phonograph reproduces the related sounds. • • The June St. Nicholas has a frontispiece called June Roses—an engraving by Frank French, the artist-engraver who designs and executes his dainty pictures entirely from the first, sketch to th» completed block. Although it is vacation, boys who wish a good piece to speak will do well to make a note of the opening poem in this number. It is called The Saga of Olaf the Young, and tells how a little Norwegian saved his father's vessel from the enemy. It is bright and stirring. Send twelve cents in postage stamps to 39 Corcoran Building, Washington, D. C, and you will receive four copies of Kate Field's Washingtonj containing matter of special interest. Give name and address, and say where you saw this advertisement. We are pleased to be able to announce that the publisher of The Inter Ocean has made a special offer on the weekly edition of that paper during the present political campaign. He will send The Weekly Inter Ocean for six months to any sub scriber on receipt of thirty cents. This is a very low price for one of the best and ablest republican newspapers in the country. Good republicans should try to increase Its circulation. Subscriptions will be received at this price from June 1 to Aug. 1. After that the regular prices will bo restored. The Weekly Iowa Capital will be sent the remainder of 1894 for 25 cents. Remit to Capital, Des Moines, Iowa, either in two cent stumps or postal note. Sample copies sent free. IN THIS NEIGHBORHOOD. LuVerne will celebrate the Fourth in big style. Burt is to have Chaplain Lozier for *i lecture, June 18. The Whittemore band will give a grand dance, June 22. Ten saloons pay $1,200 a year each to run in Fort Dodge. Burt shipped 61 cars of produce in May, according to the Monitor. Winnebago Summit: D. Turner of Algona was here in a business capacity the latter part of last week. Estherville Democrat: Attorney Swotting; of Algona was doing business in Estherville last Friday, The Whittemore co-operative creamery people are by the ears over matters arising out of tlfo burning of their building last year. Wesley pays good school salaries. The Reporter says Miss Pettlbone is elected for next year at $50 a month and Prof. Barslou at $85. The Signal says that on Memorial day at Garner "Revs. Fitch of Algona and Robinson of Goodell entertained a large audience." Who is Rev. Fitch of Algona? The North Iowa Veteran association meets at Clear Lake early in September. Either President Harrison, Thos. B. Reed, or Wm. McKinley yvill be present. ] Emraetsburg Reporter: Tuesday's gathering of Odd Fellows, at Algona, was both large ani enthusiastic and was a memorable event of the order in this district. j Rev. Bennett Mitchell of West dlde is vice president for the Tenth district in the new organization for carrjing the prohibitory amendment, L. S. Coffin is president. | Corwith Crescent: W. H. Reejj of Algona shook hands with old fritnds here and lightened the drudgery of ife by his smiling countenance and words of cheer and comfort, Whittemore celebrated two weddings last week. William, Wildfang and Miss Alleta Pearce will go to Neei in, Wls., to reside. L. J. DeGraw I nd Mary Dearchs will make their horn* in Whittemore. L«uVerne News: The Odd FelU vs' celebration at Algona was a grand success. The day was fine and a la| ge crowd was present, and Algna deserves great cre4it for the splewid way in which she entertained the visitors. The Emmetsburg Reporter have drawn on its imagination fo report of the Odd Fellows' gather for it says: "The address pi wei ffom the jump. Here 16 the Carroll Herald's salutation to him In the editorial field: Jimmy R>an Is on* of the sore-headed democrats back of tho antl-Duncombe newspaper nt Fort Dodge. Jimmy's man got knocked out on the postoffice matter and the logical result is a newspaper with which to " lam" the fellows over the head. A Cascade young man while calling upon a Jones county girl on a recent Sunday night, met with an embarrassing episode. It appears that^t-h& parents of the young^Jady—tfad retired to a sleeping room that tul- joined the room of courtship. The young man sat with his chair tilted back against the bed-room door which had not a reliable latch. In shifting his position the latch gave way, tho door flew open and he landed on the flat of his back In the middle of tho room before the bed. Tho crash awakened the sleepers and they both jumped up, but not quick enough to assist tho young Cascador who gathered himself up and beat a hasty retreat. He bestrode his nag, and galloped home earlier than usual that night. SHOULD INVESTIGATE TUKTHEB. Port Unrroti Talks About Something We Evidently is Not Posted On—Tho Jjntest improvements Haven't Reached I'ocnhotitns. Port Barren of the Pocahontas Record met his mutch when he tackled Miss Mina F. Murray, tho successful editor of tho Nashua Reporter. Port opened up with tho following story: Tho Nashua Reporter is run by a couple of young ladles who are up to snuff. Recently ono of them purchased one of those new-fangled businesses to hold up stockings and which are made to represent a green snake. About a week afterwards she went to report a ball game and was having a nice time In the grandstand when she noticed a f reeii snake crawl out from under her ress. She screamed and fainted dead away, while two gentlemen broke their gold headed canes and mashed their plug hats in trying to kill the snake. There was a wild furor for a few moments until a kid captured the snake and was making off with it when he exclaimed: "By gun, this ain't no snake. It's just a garter." The young lady reporter had to bo placed on a cake of ice before she could recover her composure sufficiently to tell which ball club was wearing the green uniforms. Miss Murray shows that she understands a thing or two about Port in her reply: The above is from the pen of that audacious Port Barron, who was " brought up" in this city until he became so notoriously bad that he was transported to a little Inland town, where for lack of a railroad he is obliged to " cart" his slanderous and malicious little sheet to a neighboring station in a wheelbarrow. Does he hope to convince the people of Nashua of the truth of the above? He can't do STOPPED WITH A BULLET, It Required That Much to Ovefhanl ft Pickpocket at the Ringllng Show in Fort Dodge.

People whose watermelons he has stolen, whose chicke_n roosts he has robbed, whose chimneys ho has sprinkled with cayenne pepper, whose peaceful slumbers he has disturbed by his midnight raids, will hesitate before they charge us with such folly. Bro. Barron you are a heartless, unfeeling wretch, but your meanness is exceeded by your deplorable Ignorance. Don't you know that the girl of the nineteenth century has relegated the garter to the rubbish in the attic and adopted the combination skirt and hose supporters? He Was There. In an address at Philadelphia recently Mr. Dolliver referred to Lincoln's visit to City Point just before Appomattox. Mr. Lincoln on that occasion ylslted the wounded In the hospitals, and Dolliver said in his Philadelphia speech: " They could not help thinking of that rainy April morning, just before treason had done its worst, and that great spirit had found the shore where neither 1 Steel nor poison, "He went down to visit the old hospital at City Point. The medical director tried to dissuade him from his purpose; but he said that he must go down there and talk a little with his boys that had fought the battles of the country. And he did go down there, and all day long, at the bedside of the sick and wounded and the dying, he held a reception more princely than if blazing chandeliers had reflected the jewels of the capitol; for, torian tells us, he took as in / on the part; of the city was by Mayor Call in a neat proprltte speecb."

It was a most dramatic and effective thing. The orator stopped till the soldier sat down, and said, completing the sentence: 11 Then, my brother, that recollection will be one of the choice and precious memories of your life." FIBE AT_ An Engine Fires Some Jlay Cars and They All Burn »t Morion Siding, Yesterday afternoon the Northwestern freight engine fired some baled hay on the right-of-way, below Irvingtpn while switching cars, and the fire burned three loaded cars before put out, Ed. Johnson lost two. The wrecking outfit came from Eagle Grove at once and cleared the track for the passenger. The Ringling circus had an exciting time at Fort Dodge last week Tuesday. It carries a number of detectives of Its own to guard against the fakirs who hang about circus crowds. While there one of the circus detectives saw a pickpocket taking a pocketbook from it lady's pocket. He caught him but tho man broke away. He caught him again but he got away again with a heavy cane rap on the head. This time ho had gained a good start and the detective brought his gun into play; the command to halt was given, but no attention was paid to it by the fugitive. A shot was fired Into the air to firighten him but he was not to be fooled and he still made good use of his legs. Four more shots were fired in rapid succession with a more business like intention. He was finally overhauled and lodged behind the bars. One shot went through his clothing near his back, but did not cut him. The outcome of the affair was that the detective was hauled up for shooting without being sworn In as an officer and was fined $25, while the pickpocket when he was tried got off because the woman could not identify him. _ Uuriicd to Death In n .Tail. W. E. Foral, a harness maker at Webster City, was locked in the city calaboose about midnight last Thursday, for being drunk and disorderly, and about an hour afterwards people were attracted by his cries. He had set fire to the building and before help came he was roasted alive. The Tribune says his fate is a warning: "He was a big hearted, peaceable, generous fellow when himself, but a perfect demon when under the influence of liquor. He had made many and desperate efforts to free himself from the habit, and had even taken the Keeley cure twice, but all to no avail, he fell a prey to his appetite again and again and finally ended his own life as above. He leaves a wife and two small children to mourn his sad fate." _ Fell Through a Bridge. Jake May of Corwith went through a Hancock county bridge over the Boone Thursday, with a load of large boulders. His team, wagon, and himself went down 15 feet into, the water, but strangely enough he got out without serious damage and his team likewise. The Hustler says this is "the second or third county bridge in this vicinity which has broken down under an ordinary load, causing more or less damage." SETTEE OOUNTBY THAN NOEWAT. Halver Flora Returns to Wesley from Native Country, and Will lie- main Herc-A New Teacher Needed In the Schools. WESLEY, June 12.— Prof. Barslou and Miss Jennie Pettibone closed another successful year of school work here last Tuesday. The board has elected them for another year at the same salaries. Mr. Barslou thinks he cannot do tho work in his room alone and wants an assistant. It is not yet certain what action the board will take in the matter, but it is evident there is more work than two teachers can do and do justice to the pupils and themselves. It was certainly u backward step whan the third teacher was dispensed with last fall. The Odd Fellows of Wesley observed the Odd Fellows' memorial day. A good delegation went to Corwith to decorate the grave of L. N. Klmball, who belonged to the lodge here, and on their return went to the Wesley cemetery and decorated the grave of Richard Gray, who was also a member, belonging to a lodge at Marion, S, D. Bender Bros, & Co. have moved their corn crib from tho north side of the railroad tracks to the south side, where they find It more convenient. Halver Flom arrived here this morn- Ing on his way homo from Christiana, Norway, where he has been visiting his native country. He informs us that there is but little emigration from that country to this, compared to what there was when he first came over. He says for his part he would sooner live here than there. Ho will remain here for a day or two with his father and mother, when he will go on to Emmetsburg to again take charge of the clothing store where he was formerly employed. SNAKES IN THE BEER. The Real Vorlety This Time, nnd More Dangerous than the Usual Snakes In Alcohol. A most peculiar story is brought from Lake Mills by one of the Roberts boys. He was with two others there who had bought a keg of beer at Blue Earth. They all drank of it and were all taken violently ill. One died, but Roberts and the other were saved by vigorous treatment. On opening the beer keg a dead bull snake was found In it. Roberta showed our informant his shoes, to some $35 lot each assessment, and under the old rules an assessment had to be made for each loss however 1 small. The meeiing, after much discussion, provided that on January i of each year an assessment of a mill and a half shall be due. In case this does not pay all losses for the year, ah as*- sessment of one mill shall be levied.. An amendment was proposed to include school houses and country churches In the property the company will insure, but it received no support. The secretary's report showed $'742,150 of policies now outstanding, and the holders number about 700. The company has grown rapidly, the cost of Insurance has been very Hght, and tha farmers are very enthusiastic. C. B. Hutchins was chosen president, E. W. Donovan vice president, and Edwin Blackford secretary for the ensuing year. It Is an excellent board of officers. - «». - _ LAST DAYS OF SCHOOL, The Public School Tornorrotv Night and the Normal School Next Tuesday Night Hold Their Annual Commencements.

Upon his rejection because of his throat Harry Moore went to Washington and saw Congressman Dolliver, and by his aid he was examined by the officers of the naval department, and they sent a recommend to the school at Annapolis that he be given another chance In September. They also recommended that he have his throat treated by a specialist in Baltimore, which he has done. Lieut. Bowyer, a professor in the academy and brother of E. G. Bowyer, sends Dr. Sheetz the following clipping from the Baltimore Sun, which is very complimentary to Harry: " The examination of the alternates, nve In number, will close tomorrow at the naval academy with the re-examln- atlon In arithmetic. Of the five that presented themselves but one has passed, so far, mentally. This Is Harry N. Moore, who was unable to take his examination on May 15 on account of sickness. Moore was in such physical condition, owing to his late sickness, tnat the medical board recommended that he return in September for a reexamination."
