A Wesley Telephone Cotftpany—Science Wbfrks WbttdetS—Some Iowa Cities, The secret of hog stealing was let out at Laurens In Pocahontas county ast week, and a baud of 15 men are ikely to be broken up, Two are in ail and the evidence is being collected 'or the others. They have been steal- ng hogs and coal chiefly, using chloro- 'orm on the hogs to prevent discovery. The Northwestern road has suffered in iheir coal trade. John Ackland, one who is caught, confessed that 17 of them had got coal all winter, They would wait for the nigbt freight and joard the cars as the engine was taking water and throw off all the coal they could and when the train pulled out ihey would pick the coal up and take .t to their homes. Ackland claims that these parties have not bought a pound of coal all winter, but have stolen it from the freight cars on the Northwestern road. It is singular that such a band could do business so long without being caught. Laurens is the home of Prof. Gilchrist, W. A. McNee and others known in Algona. Wesley to Have a Telephone. T. A. Way and T. A. Potter have incorporated a telephone company with 15100,000 authorized capital, enough paid up to build 50 miles of connections, and will begin at once on a line starting at Clear Lake running to Earner, Hutchins, Stilson, Corwith and Wesley. The officers are: President, J. Cass, cashier of at Sumner; Vice-president, Chas. Webster, presi- ient bank of Hawkeye; secretary, T. A. Potter, Corwith; treasurer, T. A. Way. 3. X. Way of Wesley is also a stock- lolder in the company. The line will be built at once connecting the places named. Clear Lake being .already connected with all the large cities, this "s a continuation of the network of telephone lines that run all over Iowa. The Wonders of Science. Ed. Bailey says in the Britt Tribune: It is said that the veterinarians who :ound the tuberculosis in the Algona cattle did a remarkable surgical feat the other day. They succeeded in removing the entire stomach from a valuable horse, making a new stomach out of rawhide lined with wire screen. This was to prevent, the ravages of 3otts and also to sift the gastric juice. The bladder was also removed and a foot ball substituted. It is astonishing what wonders ar<a performed now by scientists. We did not learn whether or not the horse recovered. Northern Iowa Cities. Fort Dodge seems to be the premium ity in this part of the state. It has 8,430 people, nearly double what it had five years ago. It has added more than many of Iowa's good towns have in five years. It is clearly entitled to rank as a city. Mason City, Webster City, and Estherville aside from the Fort have made the big gains lately. Estherville had only 701 in 1885, and 1,475 in 1890. Now it has 2,475, or eight more than Algona. But Fort Dodge's growth is the most substantial and means most for the future. A Good County for Wolves. A Palo Alto resident has brought in an old wolf with ten whelps. The Reporter says: We have heard of litters of young wolves in which there were as many as six but this is the first of which we have heard where the number has been as high as ten, and of course it must be attributable to the great productiveness of Palo Alto's soil, Can Kossuth or Emmet county beat it? _ He Prefers to Walk. J, P, Dolliver's horse threw him one day last week and went home alone. The Messenger says; His brother, V. B., mounted and went in search of his missing brother, whom he found, covered with dust and clothes torn, on his way home, On being urged to take the horse and ride home he positively declined, claiming he always did prefer walking. _ _ ntion, will be held in Ida Grove, Juae 8, 19 and 20.

Stalker on the Tuberculin Test. STERLING, III., April ?.— At the Juion stock yards, Chicago, Saturday, a herd of thoroughbred cattle belong* ng to George Powell of Whlteslde county were killed on the order of the tate veterinarian. Last fall two cows >elonging to Mr. Powell died and were muled out on the farm, where the hogs speedily devoured them. In February Mr. Powell chose a fat hog or his family use and killed it. The dressed meat looked wrong, and before using it he submitted it to Assistant Veterinarian Hoover's inspection. Her >rornptly pronounced it affected witli .Uberculosis. Monday a week ago another cow sickened and the veter- narlans were notified. They readily diagnosed the case and expressed fears ihat the entire herd, 2} head, were liseased, and advised Mr. Powell to uive them killed at the yards under nspection. It was done last Saturday. The arrival of the fine looking animals created sharp bidding among the buyers, who execrated the state officer when told of his decision. They wanted them anyway, and offered a ancy price, but were flatly refused. Inspection revealed seven badly diseased and two tainted. Today there was an inspection of the swine on the 1 arm and a thorough use of disin- ectants. PROF. STALKER ON KOCH'S LYMPH. In a recent issue of the Homestead Prof. Stalker writes about tuberculosis, answering a letter of 'inquiry. A correspondent asks if an examination of the blood will detect it. Prof. Stalker answers that there is no accurate test but Dr. Koch's tuberculin. 2e says further: "Many of these ask "or my personal opinion as to the reliability of the tuberculin test. I have had a pretty extensive experience with tuberculosis for 20 years or more, and until the discovery of tuberculin I cnew no method that would enable the most careful expert to go into a herd md separate the diseased from the lealthy without the test of slaughter. True, well-marked cases could be detected by outward symptoms. But a greater number were in a condition to sscape detection and thus cause a fresh outbreak after the destruction of plain- y marked cases. As to the reliability of the tuberculin test, it has not failed once in my hands, though I have employed it in nearly two thousand cases, MINNEAPOLIS HEALTH COMMISIONERS. Health Commissioner Avery of Minneapolis has just made a report which contains this startling statement: A ritical study of the mortality tables of this department shows that during the seven years from 1887 to 1894 there have been 2,002 deaths from consumption, or tuberculosis, in the city of Minneapolis, practically 12 per cent of all the deaths which have been recorded. In the opinion of Dr. Shakespeare, an eminent physician of Philadelphia, lully one-fifth of all deaths in infants and young children feeding on milk are to be properly attributed to tuberculosis, usually commencing in some part of the digestive organs, and ordinarily terminating fatally before a diagnosis of tuburculosis can be established. If this view was accepted it would add fully 500 to the number of deaths already mentioned, Disregarding these, however, as not fully established, it is still found by comparison that during this period of seven years the deaths from tuberculosis are equal in number to those due to typhoid fever, diphtheria, scarlet fever and smallpox combined, This extensive mortality certainly demonstrates to us the urgent necessity of adopting and rigorously enforcing such measures as may offer any fair pros- iect of curtailing the ravages of this read disease and diminishing the list of deaths for which it is accountable. you want nice, fresh- Vegetables for your table call on us and see what we keep.
