A Single T«c Colony Organized—Company P invited W £>ance—General Northwest News. aecofdlflg to the Wesle^, RepoKfif , It is thought he will have to undergo an* Other oft6ftttion. ^, ..._ Dr. Sayers) as vice president of the Stftie Veterinary association, attended the annual meeting at Des Moines last Week, which proved to be a Very im<- portant one on account of the outbreak of lung trouble in milch cows in various places. Dr. Niles of the state agricultural school read a paper on the subject, in which he said that while he did not desire to create unnecessary alarm, he was satisfied that the disease existed in various parts of the state. Consumption and other lung troubles are conveyed to oeople by using the milk of cows affected, so that tuberculosis is really the most serious disease in the whole cow category of troubles. State Veterinary Stalker was just back from testing cows near Waterloo, where a herd was found to have tuberculosis, as he told the doctors: "Every cow whose milk is sold or used by anyone, and every animal killed for market should be tested to make sure that it is not affected* for the disease is on the increase and should be stamped out at whatever cost, or the expense of human life will be terrible. We have tested the cows at the Agriculural College and found only four out of more than one hundred had the disease. These were two that had been recently bought and two that had been with them."

Sam got his band caught in the shredder and his arm was drawn in to the shoulder, The Journal says: "He was brought to town and Drs, Bachman and Boody amputated it about four inches below the shoulder, Where cprn stalks, are fed into the machine there are rollers filled with spikes and behind the rollers are knives that chop the fodder «p into pieces about an inoh long and it was into this part that the arm was drawn, The hand and part of the arm were left in the machine when he was released," A Hardy Pioneer. Jos, Thompson was at Erometsburg last week attending to some business, Pro, Mayne aa,w h}m and says; DW ing the past 18 months Mr, Thompson has had an eventful life.

Wllson*8 dfflce safe At Jitutuetsburg, and Neai'iy Bui-nod the Model Mills. A devilish piece ot work was done at Emmetsburg Saturday evening about 10:80 o'clock. Burglars opened the safe in the office of the Model mills, which stands across the street from the mill buildings, and then put a big bomb in the office and caused an explosion that shook buildings a block tuvay. The office was totally destroyed and part of it thrown against the mill, all in a blaze. Near the offloa was »the barn, also totally wrecked. One horse was killed and one was found a block away not seriously injured. It is thought it was blown there by the explosion. The wholti town turned out and active work was done to put out the fire. The devtlishness of the act was proved by the condition of the fire hose, the nozzle of which had been plugged so that some time wns Wasted in getting it ready for use. The mills were saved, as the wind blew the fire away. The safe had only $3 in money and a biff sign on the front stated that it was unlocked. The chief loss is in thenotes, all of which were taken. Harry Wilson lost two very fine diamond rings, his guns, revolvers, etc. Mr. Wilson puts the whole loss at $800. At the same time, as is now quessed, the safe in Darr's elevator was also blown up. Indications are that local talent was engaged in the enterprise. Mr. Wilson went to Emmetshurg Monday morning, and returned last evening. YOUB WINTER BEADINQ.
