When left Berlin Kneeba was still in jail unable to get bonds. Jekyll tells the story of the trouble to the Journal as bllows: "Kneebs crossed the water n company with a jockey named tleffner, an Illinois man, who was to 3ut up a good part of the expenses, in return for which he was to receive a share of the winnings. When they got to England Heffner failed to put ip his money and Kneebs dropped him. SeiTner threatened Kneebs. but he paid no attention to it and had no urther trouble with him until they ?ot to Berlin. There Kneebs had irouble one evening with a Berlin iveryman and horse fancier named Schmidt. Heffner saw his opportunity, ;ook up with Schmidt and was instrumental in causing Kneebs' arrest, claiming that he was 'ringing' Bethel >n German tracks under the name of Fannie Kneebs." This, Jekyll says, is not true. He says .that Bethel is in -his country and never was taken across the water. He reports that ECneebs offered to have Bethel shipped x> Germany to prove his innocence if his prosecutors would guarantee the safe arrival of the horse and the expenses, but this they would not do." Jekyll says "Bethel" is in this country and that Kneebs is not guilty, as he will secure abundant evidence to prove. • Caught With Dynamite. Quite a sensation was caused at Eagle rove, Friday, by the arrest of a man named Stewart, on the charge of threatening to blow up with dynamite the residences of D. C. Fllklns and Dr. J. F. Will, against whom Stewart .s said to have often evinced a bitter hatred. On arresting him two sticks of dynamite were found in his pockets, which he stoutly maintained were for ishing purposes. Being asked if he iad fuse or cartridge about his person 'or firing the dynamite sticks ho said had not, but the officers were suspicious and proceeded-to search his person. Their labors were rewarded finding both cartridges and fuse concealed about his clothing—the Cartridges on the inside of his shirt. A preliminary, hearing was at once given him and as he could give no satisfactory reason for possession of the dangerous combustibles, the justice ordered that, in default of bail, he should be placed in the county jail for safe keeping until the September term of court. Stewart has a hard name as a citizen and it looks as though his chances for going to the pen were remarkably good. * Cowa Hay for the Queen's Horses. Iowa hay shipped to England the last few months is in great demand there at $35 to $40 per ton. W. I. Buchanan of Sioux City, lately appointed United States minister to the Argentine .Republic, writes that he went to his post of duty by way of London, and while in England paid a visit to the royal stables at Buckingham palace, and found that the queen's horses were eating Iowa hay.

A Close Call, While indulging in a shoot at pigeons, at Rolfe, a shell which was partially inserted in the gun held by Jack Daley exploded and blew the look to pieces. Mr. Daley escaped with a few powder burns. A piece of the lock flew through the rim of his hat uncomfortably clpse to his head. A Pertinent Inquiry.
