THE tfcPER t)ES Moflrais has a con^ tfibutiotl of interest to make to the teaohefs now gathered in Supt. Beed's big institute. To afly of all of them Who Will take the following choice selection and read it to their instructors without making at least four mistakes, and swear solemnly that they have not consulted a dictionary or other hook nor received any hints or pointers from others, this journal of education will be sent free until the next institute. In furnishing the item we append the cheering information for the unfortun* ate that in the institute in Vermont where it was first proposed twelve mistakes wero the least made. The man who invented it is unknown, hut he is entitled l.o a medal: "Asacriligiousson of Belial, who had suffered from bronchitis, having exhausted his finances, in order to make good the de- "flcit, resolved to ally himself to a comely, lenient, and docile young lady of the Malay or Caucasian race. Ho accordingly purchased a calliope and coral necklace of a chameleon hue, and in securing a suite of rooms at a principal hotel ho engaged the head waiter as his coadjutor. He then dispatched a letter of the most exceptional caligraphy extant, inviting the young lady to a matinee. She revolted at the idea, refused to consider herself sacrificable to his desires, and sent a polite note of refusal, on receiving which he procured a carbine and bowie knife, said that he should not now forge fetters hymeneal with the queen, went to an isolated spot, severed his jugular vein and discharged the contents of the carbine into his abdomen. The debris were removed by the coroner." THE STORY OF LOUIS KOSSUTH. E. P. McElroy's oration on Louis ' Kossuth was a finished and scholarly tribute to the memory of the great Hungarian whose name this county bears. It was delivered on Thursday evening to a large audience, a song by Miss Wartman and a recitation by Ruth Reed preceding it. Mr. MoElroy pictured the growing wrongs heaped upon Hungary by the Hapsburg dynasty, the revolt in which Kossuth was so conspicuous, the hardships of his life, and the pursuits of his old age, closing with a tribute to his service to the cause of liberty. THE UPPER DES MOINES published at the time of Kossuth's death a letter from ex-Senator P. M. Cassady of Des Moines, telling how the county was named. A paragraph will bo of interest in this connection: DES MOIXES, March 29.—I introduced the bill in the senate in the early days of the soiaion, December, 1850, naming and defining the boundaries of 50 counties. On my motion it was referred to the committee on new counties. I was a member of the committee, not the chairman. In preparing the bill and selecting names I was assisted by Andrew S. Stevens, afterwards auditor of state, and Dr. Clark of Jackson county. We decided to give three names to distinguished men, Kossuth, Audubon, and Humboldt were selected; three to the colonels who fell at the battle of Buena Vista—Hardin, Yell, and Lieut. Col. Clay; three names where the battles were fought —Cerro Gordo, Buena Vista, and Palo Alto; three Irish names—Mitchell, O'Brien, and Emmet. Kossuth county was named in honor of the Hungarian patriot and leadei who was then making a tour of the United States.' When he visited St. Louis, Mo., Hon. John A. Kasson, then a resident of that city, made the welcoming speech to him on behalf of the city. TOO MUCH RAIN. The lecture on Charles I and his times to have been given by Rev. Davidson was dropped Monday evening on account of the storm. Quite an audience had assembled, who were disappointed, as they had expected a rare treat. CHALK TALK TOMORROW EVENING. The closing lecture of the session will be given tomorrow evening by Prof. French, whose reputation as an entertainer with his chalk and blackboard is well known. THE BIGGEST INSTITUTE YET HELD, The institute attendance has run up to 230, the largest number ever yet ea rolled. Every county adjoining Kos Buth or cornering 1 with it is represented including Minnesota counties on the . north, The most remarkable feature is that nearly all the teachers were on hand for the first recitation of the firs' day, At the big four weeks' institute on the 25th anniversary of county in stitutes there were 325 enrolled, bu they came in all along during the four weeks. This is easily the premium meeting in point of attendance, and the teachers all agree that for real hard practical work it has not been sur efelt in the tWttfc ttie fftfMWs fcoofc aeb ftnd feats bereft pl-esent sftjr thai he fnlefest fnaiiifested by both in* tr'nctofg&nd attendants is tefy ex* eptionftl. ^ SPMOBB'S §||Af 80Af fiAli, *« 1»* Bonder, Welt KnoWa in Koe* siith) iihd Mfs. S*» Ji Cofy fii«sp*e— Both Imnve tfainllles. ', Spencer has experienced a social upheaval the past week. T. P. Sender, who has lived there with his family for 0 years, and who has been otic of the lading business men of northern Iowa, eft suddenly, writing to his wife and to iis brother that he should not return, n his letter to Mrs. Sender he stated hat his reasons for the step he was akiag were that he had for some time ieen untrue to her, and that he could either break away from these en* anglements nor continue the hypoc- acles that were forced upon him by he life that he was leading, and that e thought it best for her, their child- en, and himself that he should go. Je stated that he had provided for the are of herself and children in the ettloment of his property, and hoped or their happiness. About the same time F. J. Cory, who was for two years on the Spencer News, got a letter from his wife, who had aeen visiting at Spencer, informing him that she had left his home never o return; that their natures and as- lirations were so dissimilar as to prelude the possibility of their ever being ible to enjoy that sympathetic union of hearts and minds that is so essential to he happiness of husband and wife; hat she knew she did not possess his ove and that she had ceased to love him, and that while she sincerely de- ired to see him successful and happy n life, she thought their separation would eventually prove a blessing to both of them. Both letters were writ- en and mailed from the same train be- ween Kansas City and Denver. Mrs. Cory is a handsome woman. At he editorial meeting at Spencer two 'ears ago she responded to a toast at he banquet in a very clever speech. Sender has been a very successful man n business. The elopement is one of he most sensational that ever occurred n this section. He leaves several ihildren and she one. TEACHERS' EXAMINATION, regular institute work closes to morrow evening, Friday and Saturday will be devoted to an examination foi certificates. SOME GENERAL OBSERVATIONS. The reporter dropped in on the teachers a couple of hours yesterday morning. He expected to visit 10 min utes in a room, but found the topics o such interest that be remained an hour The instruction was given in a bright animated way, was on the vital matters and the questions and answers wer Quick and lively, Miss Minnie Morse jn physiology, seemed especially cleai and auick in her answers to all cues tions, and comprehensive in her state IB&nts.

The fact that E. P. Bircher expects o have "Bellton" in the state fair •aces and that Charles Smith will have 'Charlie H" there will give a local interest to the races. The fair opens August 29. Rev. Saunderson will de- iver the annual sermon, Sunday. Among the special features will be an exhibit of the Des Moines Kennel club. Sixty dogs from Philadelphia and 50 'rom Cincinnati are two of the kennels to be there, and altogether the committee expects fully 300 dogs. They offer ?1,500 in premiums now, the orig- nal offer of §1,200 being raised because )f the large number of entries. It will je a novel entertainment to the people of this state and is sure to be of much .nterest to all canine lovers. The rifle shooting by Miss Lillian lody will also be a new feature. Miss lody is the most celebrated lady rifle shot in the world. She has spent four years in Europe with Buffalo Bill'; Wild West show, and last year was in Chicago during the entire fair. She will give her exhibitions on the race track in front of the grand stand, and there will be no extra cost to see her. liourke Cochran's Appeal. In his protest Monday against the democrats of the house accepting the senate tariff bill, the eloquent New York democrat said: Mr. Speaker, it seems to me that the question before the house has been somewhat overlooked. The vital point at issue here is whether the American congress is to legislate or whether some unknown, un mentioned force can block the wheels of legislation and make the represents tives of the people cower in the dust and surrender they know not to whom (Loud applause.) We are told tha three, four, five, six, seven, or eight in dividuals have managed to make such a combination in the other branch, tha any change in its terms will be fatal to the passage of the measure. If that be so, in the name of the American people in the name of liberty and honor, let us know who they are. (Applause on the republican side and in the gallery, We are hopelessly discredited be cause our cowardice makes our sur render disgraceful. Mr. Speaker, I de sire to state here that in my humble judgement the measure which we are now asked to pass, is a more obnoxious protective tariff measure than the McKinley act which it is designed to sup plant. (Cries of dissent on the demo cratip side and jeers.) You surrender the dignity and in dependence of the house to secure tin passage of a bill which will so flrml; entrench protection in popular favo: that this generation may never sei another successful effort to overthrow it. "If we are to swallow this whole obnoxious bill, then in the name o fair play, in the name of propriety, in the name of decency and the name o American liberty and American free dom, let the gentleman from Wes Virginia (Mr. Wilson) tell us to whom we are surrendering; tell us who they are who constitute the new forces ii this government to which we ar< compelled to pay tribute; tell us fully and without reserve the character o the action which he asks is to tak that we may judge the depth of th infamy into which we are invited t descend." (Applause,) i' slippers, new stock, a.t Gal pea makers be affected, by the iiico we taj. Sums* ttm «r« WATCH BISBASBS. 60M6THIN6 yK6tH6§£ MAN MECHANISM. HU- the Ailment* 6f Consumption, Rheuinatlam and fieart FAlittfrt Mid Eijjlttlns the Analy»U til finch Case. "Tfaat*B the twenty-third today— We're going to have an electric storm,*' remarked a down town jeweler as he was handed a Watch having a broken mainspring for repair. "How do you make that out?" In* quired the customer. "Why, by the number of broken mainsprings, to be sure," was the reply. There is a regulai epidemic to Which watches are subject, much as huinan- ty Is to smallpox and cholera, it is iroduced by certain electric conditions if the atmosphere. The mainspring becomes magnetized and more brittle, and slight shock will break it. Occasionally it will snap with no apparent cause whatever. I have had it happen to watches lying in the showcase or upon he rack there. You know, of course, hat such atmospheric conditions frequently disturb telegraph and telephone ines and even prevent communication. ?hat might be expected, as they are iperated by electricity, but the effect jn watches is singular. Frequently ven a severe thunderstorm will produce t, but nn auroral display, which seems o be an electrical disturbance, is sure o result in many broken watch springs, and no better term could bo applied to he trouble than epidemic. "No, there Is no reliable protection against it, though many things have jeen tried and many thousands of dol- ars have been spent. Attempts have been made to temper the springs by electricity, a sort of inoculation against he disease. Then a small plate or disk of soft iron placed within the case to absorb the magnetism, a disinfectant, so to speak, has given some good results. Do you know." he continued in a discursive tone, "that a watch is simi- ar in many ways to a human being? It ias its diseases and decays, its epidem- cs, old age and finally dissolution. Yes, and each watch has its individual- ty and special characteristics, and the finer the watch the stronger this personality, if it can be so called, exactly as culture develops and strengthens individual character among mankind. "Now, in this epidemic this watch 'eels the atmospheric condition as you 1 do before a thunderstorm, only more acutely, as does a gouty or rheumatic person, being specially susceptible to men influence, and, perhaps having an inherent weakness at one point in the mainspring that snaps, fractures a vital organ. 'Heart failure' it might be termed, for the mainspring of the watch is its heart, its driving force. True, we can replace the mainspring, which cannot be said for the human heart, but there is no telling how soon surgery will attain that result, "Then there's the hairspring of the watch, equivalent to its brain. It is affected by proximity to a strong localized electric force—for instance, the generator or dynamo of an electric plant. It becomes magnetized and stops —a sort of paralysis. The nonmagnetic watches have hairsprings made of a composition metal, tin, zinc and other varieties. The soft iron plate or disk I mentioned before gives protection to the hairspring as well as the mainspring by absorbing the magnetism. A few years since a number of railroad companies had these iron disks applied to the watches of many of their employees, but they are by no means a complete disinfectant. "The lever of a watch also is subject to eleotrio influences, and when "polarized, having a forked end, it becomes a ' regular horseshoe magnet and first retards, then stops the hairspring—a sort of Bpinal meningitis, you see. The jewels and bearings are its joints and processes and are subject to sprains and dislocations as well as inflammation or too much friction. Any severe shock may result in a sprain or even dislocation to these joints. The latter will stop it and probably have immediate attention, while the sprain may remain unnoticed, but will render its movement irregular and eventually cause far greater injury than an actual breaking of the joints. At seas on the approach of a storm the ship's chronometers, of which three are usually carried, are 'put to bed,'as it is called, being packed in pillows to prevent injury by sudden jar from the ship's violent motion. A few minutes' error in the time of making observations might throw a vessel many miles 'out of its course, "Then a watch has a kind of rheumatism. The oil with which its joints are lubricated dries and forms corundum, which irritates and puts the pinions and bearings, creating friction or inflammation, "Dirt to a watch, like biliousness to humanity, is its most frequent, disagreeable and least dangerous ailment. It come from all sorts of things—small fibers from the pocket, fine dust, microscopic matter from many sources, work through into the case and collectively disturb, retard and finally prevent motion altogether. The system becomes clogged, end a thorough cleaning out is the only corrective, |» both these latter diseases atmospheric conditions materially influence the patient's condition, dry, dusty weather hastening the development and rendering the attack more apute. Bust or consumption js as deedr jy to A watch as to humanity, an<J after it reaches a certain stage is incurable.
