Arid Now tie is Minus His Membershi Therein for Fracturing the Ttuth— Other Northwest News. full story of Rev. 0. Brooks trouble at Livermore furnishes a rathe amusing chapter in local church his tory. It seems that the hew Baptis preacher there Is a singer. He has a good voice and one of enduring quali ties. It does not tire easily. More ever the minister enjoys his own music Seated at the organ he allows the sharps and flats to fill the vaulted dome of the Livermore church until some o his less musical auditors are like pin cups in a deluge, filled to overflowing It has been the custom to hold a praise meeting each Sunday evening before church. The pastor at these meetings has often allowed his zeal for music to make him forgetful of the passing hour and the praise service has delayed the more serious services of the evening until Rev. Rev. Brooks, whose zeal is for prompt action if for anything, made up his mind that the cause was being injured and that a little friendly admonition would not only be in order, but was his bounden duty as a faithful jleaner in the vineyard. He accordingly approached the pastor and Bug- jested that while it was not his desire ;o cork the fountains of melody, it was ils opinion that the church services were being injured by the delays in be- linning occasioned by the musical overflow in the praise meeting, and ;hat if the praise meetings wore held after the regular service the church would grow more rapidly in members. Tn fact, he went on to say to give point ;o his remarks, some had already left on account of the much singing. The pastor instead of accepting Bro. Brooks' •enmrds in the spirit in which they vere intended, and no doubt suspect- ng the good faith of this attack on vocal music by a vender of organs, made particular note of the statement about ome having gone, and had Bro. Brooks )ut on trial as to its literal accuracy. On trial the individual persons who wore alleged to have failed in their appearance could not be specified and Bro. Brooks was churched as a pre- raricator, the truth was declared not n him, and he is now wandering about utside of the Baptist fold, getting en- orsemonts from the business world as o his reputation. A Kossuth Onion Patch. The Blue Earth Post relates the folowing: Geo. Hawkins, formerly con- lected with one of our meat markets, is ow running a farm of hie own about our miles west of Elmore just over the ine in Iowa. A few days since his Brother, A. F. Hawkins, and Fred Anerson drove down to see the folks. Art says he never saw such good crops n his life. Mrs. Hawkins took it upon lerself to sow seven or eight acres of nions. They brought to this office sample of the onions raised. It weighs 22 ounces and is of the silver olor variety. Had it not been for the routh they would have had from 3,000 o 4,000 bushels. The lowest estimate ut upon the crop as it now stands is .500 bushels of as nice onions as were ver grown. Their other crops are ex- ellent, especially the corn, which Art. ays is as heavy as any he ever .saw. We congratulate Mr. Hawkins upon is good luck and hope he may sell his nions to advantage. 35. G» Bowyer Be-elected, The Iowa Retail Jeweler's association, new organization, held its first semi- nnual meeting Thursday at the Savory ouse. About 85 jewelers from outside he city were present, Ten new mem- ers were admitted. The object of the ssoclation is to compel manufacturers o stamp their goods honestly. Instan- es are quoted where watch cases war- anted for 20 years' wear were sent to 10 United States mint and being as* ayed were found to contain but 65 to 7i cents worth of gold. The retail eweiers have to stand the blame and ose business on account of this dis- onesty, so they are trying to baye a RW passed by congress to prevent it. "'he officers of the Iowa association are: 3. A. Cole, Winterset, president; D, A- Curtis, Knoxville, vice president; H. Cirkpatriok, Battle Creek, secretary; ",. G. Bowyer, Algopa, treasurer. Capt.

Another Medal fof Bravery, Capt. H. I. Smith of MEBOH City has received one of the medals issued by congress "for most distinguished gal lantry nt the crossing of the Black River, North Carolina. March 15, 1865. The officer, then serving on the staff o: brigade commander, under fire and al the peril of his life, fearlessly plunged into a swiftly flowing river, swollen beyond its banks, and rescued a soldier who had been swept down beyond his depth." THE 1894 OOBN OEOP, Government and State Reports Show Where lowit Stands la the List. The reports of the department of agriculture at Washington for September shows a falling oil in the condition of corn all over, the country. The present condition is 75 in Kentucky, 70 in Ohio, 55 in Michigan, 80. in Indiana, 76 in Illinois, 51 in Wisconsin, 60 in Minnesota, 40 in Iowa, 60 in Missouri, .45 in Kansas, 15 in Nebraska and 16 in South Dakota. In most of .ho southern states the condition has •isen and a good crop iff certain. In addition to the unfavorable prospects arising from the low condition of the growing crop, reports from eight states show that of the aggregate of 40,878,934 acres planted there was cut up for 'odder or abandoned, 16,506,000 acres, or 38 per cent, which is a little over 20 per cent, of the entire area planted n the country. The percentage out up or abandoned by the states report- ng is as follows: Indiana, 06, Illinois 0, Wisconsin 2], Iowa 35, Kansas 61, Missouri 10, Nebraska 81, South Dakota 81. THE STATE CROP REPORT. Following is a summary of the September reports of the correspondents of the state: The average condition of corn is. rated 86 per cent, ["his indicates an average yield of 1.88 bushels per.acre. The present ^crea£o is 6,738,000 acres, and if this estimate is borne out by the final •eturns, the aggregate for the state will be about eighty million bushels. In the southern and central districts a arge portion of the crop has been cut, .nd the balance is mostly beyond langer from frost. In the northern districts cutting is rapidly progressing, but a portion of the crop is still immature, and materially dam- iged by a killing frost. The amount of corn that will this 'ear bo put into the farmers cribs will >e very light—probably less than forty million bushels. But under stress of locessity the larger part of the fodder nil be utilized; and this added to the "•rain will give in feeding value a total orn yield of about 60 per cent, of an verage, if it is cut and cured in good ondition. Other crops are rated as follows: 'lax, 65; potatoes, 35; pastures, 83; pples, 60; grapes, 55 per cent. CORN Harvesters in stock at The Wigwam.—23 TWO LIVES SAVED.
