ISDErKNDENCE, March 4.—Otto Stum- ma is a merchant of Shady Grove who ior the past year has had hankerings toward the matrimonial state. In answering: an advertisement he formed the acquaintance of a young lady in Indiana, and considered himself settled for life, but the lady had other admirers and one day surprised him by announcing her marriage. ' Otto's heart was badly damaged, but he applied the cement of courage and wrote to the cause of all his grief for recommendations to another desirable young lady. Miss Maud Avery is a native of JNashville, Tenn., and a southern belle of the most dashing type. For four years she has worked at the dressmaker's table, and wearying of this toil she longed for a home of her own and accepted her friend's recommendation. The day was set, and ten days ago she arrived in this city. Stumma called at the hotel and set Sunday for the wedding day. Sunday arrived, but no groom, also Monday and Tuesday and Wednesday. Thursday Stamma came to town, but was in a'very reluctant spirit, and it was not until visions of a damage suit were before him that he consented. - AN INSANE ACT- ft Wfti 3» In W Meet oH DtBUQtTE, March i.—Judge Husted. of this city, has ?ec6ive"d a letter from Attorney General Remley stating that the new jury law of Iowa goes into effect this year, and not in 1896, as a misprint states.

CABROLL, March 1.—A few days ago the dead boey-of-a man-was found in a cornfield near Halbuiy — Investigation "by the sheriff and coroner disclosed the fact that the..corpse was that of Charles Vetter. He was a cripple, and by his side- 'lay-two canes and-a bottle of'strychnine and some orange peelings. Vetter was,lying on his face, •which was black, one hand grasping •with 1 the grip of a vice some binding twine, the other his overcoat. The bottle of strychnine was half empty and cracked. In his pockets were found $100 in gold, f 0, 50 in silver and some deeds, tax- certificates and receipts. The theory is that he took half the strychnine—enough to have killed half the people in the township — and then ate the orange to remove the bitter taste. • Vetter • was. a 'baehe^r, about 00 j r ears old, and comfortably fixed. He lived with his brother, and' for several weeks has complained of a terrible pain in his head, and has been subject to fits of melancholy. WALTER T.

He has been a res- • jdent pf Dayis county for about five years, and is a Swede, using poor English, although fairly well educated. A few years ago, while the Princess i, Dagmar pf Russia was visiting in Paris, he flre>y on her for $7,000, The draft was returned for collection of protest |ees, but he gave it no attention, i th»t time he has drawn at least i ptber drafts on members of the ' iGjBrnjan npbility, and in both instances paid • protest fees amounting to ' "" i giving na.oxplanatipn to the 'whom"' the drafts were npt The first annual convention of the towa Liberal League was held in Dav* enport on the 38th, with an attendance of about thirty. Its object is the repeal of the present prohibitory and mulct laws, and the enactment of a well regulated license law. A few days ago a drunken row in tho town of Thompson ended in one man being mortally wounded and the perpetrator under arrest The circumstances are about this way: A brother of the celebrated Eugene Riiey, who was chewed by a bull dog a few years ago, in company with one WhStrock, filled up on illegal whisky and went down to August Gartke's blacksmith shop,to get him drunk and induce him to go on lliley's bond, or perhaps, compel him to. When Gartke refused lliley assaulted him with a club and Gartke returned the assault with a large monkey wrench, and broke lliley's skull. Riley is expected to die. Burglars forced an entrance into the First National bank of Griswold. They opened the vault door with explosives, drilled inside to the tune lock safe, placing in it a charge, lit the fuse and closed the vault door. The charge proved so heavy that it wrecked the vault, safe and building to the extent of nearly 84,000. The report from the explosion of the safe was so great that the robbers made a hasty departure, but not before securing nearly $400 in stamps belonging to the postmaster and $150 in small change inside the vault door for safekeeping. The small inner safe contained $30,000, but it cannot be learned if this was stolen until.the great mass of wreckage is removed. A large posse is in pursuit of the robbers, who are supposed to be prosessionals. Later, the inner safe was found to be intact and the contents safe. Chicago dispatch: A portion of the booty from the looted First National bank of Griswold, Iowa, has been recovered, and a supposed member of the gang implicated in that affair and in the subsequent fight at Council Bluffs, is under arrest. The suspect is Mark Davis, a Chicago saloonkeeper, arrested with $000 in postage stamps in his possession. The Co'uncil Bluffs police wired the authorities at Chicago to watch for the valise shipped by the American Express by Davis, and when he, with his bartender, called for it, both were arrested. The valise contained several packages of stamps supposed to have been stolen at Griswold. . Davis, the police say, was implicated in the robbery of the First National bank at Galesburg fourteen years ago. The theory of the police is that Davis is a member of a gang of western bank robbers, he playing the part of a "fence."

At a preliminary hearing he was bound over to await the actipn of the grand jury, He was indicted and his trial was had recently. The jury after being out five hours returned a verdict of guilty.

Hall, of Minneapolis, addressed a meeting here. He said that nearly 100,000,000 bushels of potatoes were imported annually; that by the rotation of crops and cultivation of potatoes to a greater extent, this deficiency can be made up along the line of the Great" Western.

SAVANNA**, GA., Feb. 28.—Savannah escaped a riot through the assistance of the state militia. The trouble wa« precipitated by ex-Priest Joseph Slattery's lecture on "Roman Catholic Priesthood." For several days efforts have been made by members of the Ancient Order of Hibernians to revoke the ex-priest's permit to deliver thd lecture, but the mayor upon legal advice replied that it could not be done. Threats were openly made against the lecturer. The lecturer had the protection of police, a detail of officers being ordered on duty in the hall whefe the lecture was to be held; the lecturer continued his offensive language, but the crowd gathered outside began to hurl stones through the window in on the audience, The pohCe ordered the crowd to disperse but they refused, and kept shouting hang him. The mayor ordered out the, militia. The riot alarm Was sent in, and in a few minutes the companies responded. By the time ihe military arrived the audience had left the hall and a detail of mounted police stood guard at the entrance. The crowd numbered 2,000 by this time, and were largely spectators. The electric lights jaround the hall were broken by missiles, and for a time the neighborhood was in darkness. After the military arrived on the scene there was comparative quiet. The streets were soon cleared, and the troops remained on guard duty. As soon as the disturbances had subsided the lecturer was brought from the hall and, escorted by the police and surrounded by two battalions of soldiers, walked to his hotel. The crowd followed and jeered along the streets, but there was no attempt at an attack. Half an hour after the ex-priest was escorted from the hotel by a squad of police. CANCELLED STAMPS. cause.

I. had anotjier attack a few weeks later in Berlin, and a third in Paris. I had the very best medical attention, but could not get cured. I returned' to Chicago about the end of April, very weak, still suffering and grew very much worse. My joints were fearfully swollen; J suffered great pain. I con suited eminent doctors but could get no relief. Finally I was induced to try a bottle of .Schrage's Rheumatic Cure, and I can frankly say that before I had taken half of one bottle I began to get relief. 1 took only four bottles in al] and have not had any return of the painful disease. Therefore, 1 considei myself cured. Yours truly, E. RyCBOFT. as Bond Premium Reaches 0 For Cent.

On the 27th inst. Postmaster General V. S. Bissell placed his resignation as member of the cabinet in the hands )f President Cleveland, to be accepted pon the appointment of his successor. lis reasons for doing so are that his >rofessional work demands his atten- ion. There are no disagreements with ,he President. At Brooklyn, three alarms were sent out for a hre which started in the apartments of the janitor of the city mil. The firemen experienced great difficulty in getting water on account of frozen hydrants and before the firc- nen could attack the fire it had spread from the floor to the clock tower and npola. At 8:45 a. m., the tower feU to the roof with a crash. The large bell formerly used as a fire bell was melted by the intense heat.

Payne is examiner for some life insurance companies and Shamwell wrote that some of the companies' examinations by Payne were not properly made. Payne charged Shemwell with this, and there were hot words, which led tpthe drawing of revolvers. In the fight which followed Shemw^ll shot and killed Dr. R, L.

WASHINGTON, Feb. 20.—The scheme of the friends of Edna Kane and Mettie Gorman, of Kanevillc, 'Ills., in instituting a "chain" of Letters seeking cancelled postage stamps for the benefit of the latter, a cripple, has resulted in an investigation by' the postofflce inspector, and a report was forwarded to Postmaster General Bissell. Tlic scheme caused great annoyance to the postal service, aggravated by a new "chain 1 inaugurated al. El Paso, Texas, in a inpclc expression of sympathy for the postmaster, whose office was flooded witli mail as the result. The, number of stamps found in the room of the beneficiary of the system is estimated at 15,000,000, and the report says farmer boys supplied with sacks carried off many of the letters. The mails not only comprised letters, but boxes and bundles carrying between 1,000 and 10,000 cancelled stamps. "There are enough idiots throughout the country," says the inspector, "to swamp the office with stamp letters, driving the postmaster to'the insane asylum. The present situation is ridiculous for all concerned, and will likely end in a grand bonfire of the 15,000,000 stamps already received." The' scheme, ,he concluded, has demoralized tho office and good service demands an immediate remedy. • The issuance of a, "fraud" order prohibiting the use of the mails is recomm ended, but the report Jaa not yet been acted on, CORRUPTION IN OKLAHOMA. inated North Clevejanfl recently nom Senator M, W.
