At Cedar Rapids recently Mrs. Win. IT. Lansing, wife of a well-known saloonkeeper, died from the effects of an overdose of morphine. It cannot be determined whether the drug was taken to allay neuralgic pain or with suicidal intent, but the latter supposition is thought to be correct. Willie Schnieder, a 14-year-old boy residing tpn miles from Dubuque, was out hunting rabbits n few days ago when he was attacked by a .bic- gray wolf. He thrust his gun into the j brute's mouth and fired, killing- it j instantly. He brought in the scalp j and received §5 for it, ^ a uoullty .

He observed a smell of gas in the corridors and concluded to break in the door. When he entered the room he found both men unconscious, pr, Elders was called in and found that they had been asphyxiated. They would have been dead in a few moments. Now they are on the way to recovery. Only a short time ago Rev. William Stevens Perry, D, D., bishop of Iowa, returned to his home at Davenport from a sojourn of several months an Europe.

CHICAGO, Nov. 12.—The Evening Post says that owing to the lawlessness of the police in certain districts of the city during the election, a strong movement is on foot to secure an investigation of the police force by the state authorities.

Loxcox, Nov. 15.—A dispatch to the Pall Mall Gazette from Chc-Foo says: The Japanese have captured Port Arthur. TALMACE RESIGNS. -, This Time His Congregation Releases Him and He Is Open for Engagements. NEW YOUK, Nov. 10.—The association of the Rev. Dr. T. DeWitt Talmage with the Brooklyn tabernacle has been formally severed. His resignation is due. he said, to the fact that he does not feel as though he should ask his old congregation to build the fourth church for him. He advises them to join other churches or build for a new pastor. As to the doctor's future plans he says that he will either take a new pastorate or enter evangelistic work, "preaching the gospel to all people without money and without price," A session of the church board formulated a letter to the presbytery, asking that they formally dissolve the pastorate relations between themselves and Dr, Talmage, and also expressing regret at his action, TRAINS COLLIDE. Six Killed nnd Several Injured on the IJal- tlniore & Ohio. ,. Pm-SHUKG, Nov. !).—The Baltimore & Ohio limited, coming west ran into the first section of No. (14, a fast cattle train, at Rosensteel siding, two miles east of Rock wood. Six men were killed in the collision and several others badly hurt. Both trains were going at the rate of forty miles an hour and came together while rounding a curve. Neither crew had time to jump or sound a warning. The proper place of meeting for them is at Pine Grove, four or five miles east "of the place of collision, where the passenger should have taken a siding for the freight. For some reason the passenger train passed the siding. The mail car was reduced to kindling wood. Only the heavy vestibules of the passenger cars saved them from a similar fate. Fully a dozen cattle c»rs were piled up in the the wreck, killing and maiming many dumb brutes. fact, it is said the sheriff has been trying for a year to get evidence to hold Gardner. The strongest earthquake shocks ever felt in the City of Mexico occurred recently, lasting five minutes. Many houses and walls fell. The streets were full of fieeing people, many wounded, and a number of dead. The electric and otuer lights went out, leaving the city in darkness. All traffic was suspended. The streets were filled with screaming, crying, praying people. The scene was undescribable. The people in the theatres, which were all running at the time, were terribly frightened and panics were only averted by the police. The people in the trains were most frightened of all. All telephone connections were interrupted. Shocks were felt in nearly all the towns. It is said that a young American doctor named Nuttall, formerly a professor at the Johns Hopkins University at Baltimore, who for the last two years has been studying in Berlin, has advanced a claim of being the real discoverer of the diphtheria serum of which Dr. Behring is considered ' to be the discoverer. Dr. Nuttall asserts that he discovered the curative properties of the serum while studying in Dr. Behring's laboratory and, he asserts, that in his graduating thesis at the university, before Dr. Behring made public his statements, he gave clearly nnd succinctly the same facts that Dr. Behring subsequently gave to the medical congress at Buda-'Pe'sth in fuller form. tifePUBUCANS bfeFAT HlLL AND bOV/N THE TAMMANY CttY tiCKET* tile IJemoevats Concede ibtvtt to the Ite- 1 publicans bjr u Pitirnllty oif Scvehty- flvc Thousands IOWA.

As one of the results of the recent investigation into the sanitary condition of the bakehouses of London, prominent citizens have submitted to the London county council a petition asking for a number of amendments to the public health act as relates to baking establishments. The resolutions suggest that uniform metropolitan laws regulating bakeries bo made by the London council, and that the duty of enforcing said laws devolve upon the various local sanitary authorities; that such laws shall govern the regulation of the conduct of the business, the structure of the premises, and the mode in which application is to be made for san 'tion to establish new bakeries in the city of London; that it be rendered an offense to ocpupy as a bakehouse any cellar or place almost or altogether below the level of the street; that all metropolitan bakehouses be regularly licensed and that the grunting of the licenses be vested in the London county council, It is thought that the adoption of these measures would prove of untold benefit to the cpinraunity, especially among the poorer classes.
