A Thief Relieves Mr, Bonstetter of ft Good Morse—The Round-up of Miscellaneous Matters. Down near Thor a week ago Monday two boys, one about ten years of age and the other sixteen, were walking along by the side of the road on their way home from school, when they were confronted by a big, burly ruffian who drew a brace of huge revolvers and demanded in tragic tones: "Your money or your life!" The only weapons of de- fon^e which the boys possessed were a few school books and a slate pencil, so taking into consideration the look of mightiness which was worn by the valorous pillager before them, they delivered up what valuables they had with them. The highwayman then took his departure. The Humboldt Republican says: The affair was soon reported at headquarters and search was at once instituted for this man so bold and fearless. The result of these '.-efforts was that Constable Peter Wiriterton came over with the man of daring, Eric Budall by name, and lodged him in the county jail to await tho action of the grand jury. A Mighty Menu Thlof. Emmetsburg has a thief who is entitled to a seat at the right hand of his satanic majesty. The Reporter says of him: One of the most despicable acts that has happened in Emmotsburg for some time took place sometime during the latter part of the past week. Someone entered tho M. E. church and stole the birthday box belonging to the Sunday school, and the Epworth League mite box. No one knows positively how much money each one contained, but it is thought the birthday box contained somewhere in the neighborhood of $9. Tho Congregational church was also entered and the mite box belonging to the Endeavor society was taken. Here the thief did not get a great deal, as the box was opened not long since and the contents taken out. Seeing that tho thief has the money lie might now return the boxes and have some more collections taken un for him. _. Disastrous Sport. A strange and unusual accident happened near Prairiesburg a few days ago. Milton Koethly of Prairie City was visiting his friend, Arthur Smith, and while jaunting around over tho country they caught an old pony that was running at large and thought to have some sport. Smith tied a number of tin cans to the horse's tail and gave him a cut with a whip, expecting to see the animal go galloping away. Keethly was standing in the road waiting for the fun which was not long deferred. Instead of rushing away at a breakneck speed, the horse turned about and rushed at Keethly, knocking him down and nearly killing him. Ho has since laid in a helpless condition. The horse struck him at the base of the brain and blood flows from his ears and nose. Iowa's Game Law. So many people make inquiry as to Iowa's present game law that we herewith reproduce it. Paste it in your hat or some other convenient place, and controversy over the question can be quickly settled. Condensed into small compass it is as follows: Prairie chickens, September 1 to December 1; woodcocks, July 10 to January 1; ruffled grouse or pheasants, quails and wild turkeys, October 1 to January 1; wild ducks, geese and brants, August 15 to May 1; beavers, minks, otters and musk-rats, November 1 to April 1. Not more than twenty-five each of grouse, woodcocks and quails to be killed in any one day by any one person. Not to exceed one dozen game birds per day may be shipped to any one person within the state. Exportation of game birds is prohibited, M. Boustetter'B Horse Stolen. M. Bonstetter of Garfield township came to West Bend Hallowe'en Wednesday and tied his horse on the street. About 8 o'clock he wanted to go home, but his horse could not be found. The Journal says: At first it was thought that some of the boys who were cutting Hallowe'en pranks had taken it and tied it in some out-of-the- way place for a joke, but a diligent search that night and the next day failed to produce any clue to the mystery, and Mr. Bonstetter concluded the horse had been stolen. He had 100 postal cards struck off, describing the horse, and sent them broadcast over the country, but up to date nothing has been heard of the thief or the property, Fun Abend for Fishers. Commissioner Delayan a week ago shipped from the hatchery at Spirit ke over 7,000 young black bass, perch, and croppies to Iowa Falls for the Iowa river, On the same day Mr. Delavan and his assistants succeeded taking more than two buehela of young bass and croppies f row the small pockets or bayous adjacent to tbe Jakes, These young Sab were ftt once placed in Okoboji and Spirit lakes.
