The announcements and programs of the meeting, issued by the executive committee, make a pamphlet of twenty pages. It contains, in addition to the program of the general association, that of the educational council, those of four department meetings, four section meetings and ten round table meetings. These programs cover eyery phase of educational work from the kindergarten to the university. Upon the general program appear the names of such well- known orators and thinkers as Qov. Jackson, State Supt. Sabin, Senator Harsh of Creston, Representative Weaver of Wnpello, and Pros. Cook of Illinois Normal university. One entire section will be devoted to 'the subject of "Needed Educational Legislation," with a view to unifying and formulating the. wishes of Iowa educators as to improvements in the -school at reduced rates addressing P.

Emmetsburg Mortgages Sold, NEW YORK, Deo. 14.— Mortgages to a total of $1,800,000 are to be sold at the Stock Exchange after the close of business today by the Mercantile Trust company as the result of the failure some time since of the American Investment company of Emmetsburg, Iowa. The object of the sale is to redeem the debentures, a third of a million of which, together with a similar sum in guaranteed loans; are held by English capitalists. It is said that a scheme had been put up by which the mortgages were to be sold for a song and the Investment company held for the further amount necessary to satisfy the claim. Judge Shiras of Dubuque, however, has put a quietus on this scheme by ah order to Receiver Allen that the poor must be paid first and there are just about enough assets in Iowa to recoup the poor wage workers who had invested their small earnings in the Investment company's mortgages on the expectation of larger returns, The indications are, therefore, that the English investors will have to whistle for their money. Accidentally Shot. A sad accident occurred about twelve miles northeast of Emmetsburg, in Vernon township, Wednesday evening shortly after dusk, in which John Jer- amiahson was accidentally shot and instantly killed. It seems that he and another young roan keep bach some little distance from where his father lives but still near enough for him to have his folks do their baking, John and this friend had been over to Mr, Jera- miahson's and just after dusk they started for their, own home on horseback, On their way home they ran across several jack rabbits, John told his friend to stay and watch them and he would proceed to the house and get his gun and try to kill one. He rode to the bouse, got his gun and was re* turning with it when, in all probability, the horse stumbled and the gun was accidentally discharged, blowing the back of his head off, ing am "in it, whether ther* is a polht it Iowa four- tee^ miles from a railway stalloh.

Some Curious Specimens. Frank RuSsOll, the Fort Dodge boy who has boon exploring In the Arctic regions for the State University, has turned his collection over. The collection consists of several musk oxen, polar bears and other rare northern animals; also a large collection of Ivory carvings and other ethnological material. The collection is worth between $0,000 and $8,000. Without doubt the Russell expedition is ono of the most successful over sent out by an institution of learning. A New Wrinkle lit WrlRht County. Not a few of the farmers near Clarion are trying a new way of "shucking" their corn that had been out and shocked, by running it through a threshing machine the same as small grain. The process not only gives them corn shelled and cleaned in good shape but transforms the stalks Into excellent fodder. It Is a new method in this locality, but works so satisfactorily that it promises to soon become general with those who cut and shock their corn.

The country surrounding it is bound to make Algona a big city in a very few years. A Mighty Mean Man. Ed, Bailey says in the Britt Tribune: The meanest man in Iowa lives in Algona. He stole hens from a widow who raised them to eke out an existence. He ought to be bound out to a gimlet maker, and fed on bean soup for five years, and have to eat it with a gimlet out of a jug.
