Hanna will now take charge of Venezuelan inlet-eats in the Mississippi valley, and have headquarters at Des Moines. Venezuela after making his acquaintance, while he was there as United States consul, has decided that he is the tnan it is after, and hasappointed him "Venezuelan consul-general for the Mississippi valley and western states." The State Begis- ter says! This appointment, of course, comes from General'Crespo, president of the republic of Venezuela. A special bill was passed allowing the president to make this appointment on account of Mr. . Hanna not being a citizen of Venezuela. The Venezuelan government will not require of Mr. Hanna the usual routine duties of a consul, but will allow him to work in a field better suited to his tastes, which will be lecturing and generally showing up in this country the advantages of Venezuela, and the mutual benefits to be derived by both countries in uniting their trade interests. Mr. Hanna, while United States consul at Venezuela, was much impressed, with the advantages which would accrue to the United States if proper relation existed between the two nations, and was ever on to alert to strengthen these relations. This effort on his part was evidently appreciated there, and they have remembered him in the manner mentioned, conferring this honor in the hope that he will continue his work for them In this country. While he had some intimation that the appointment could be secured by him if he asked for it, yet it has come upon him in the shape of a surprise, as he has made little effort to secure it. The remuneration for his services can not be stated exactly at this time. They are to be made by ; an appropriation of the Venezuelan congress,' which convenes next month. . Will. Sterzbach's Thoroughbred. Will. Sterzbach took P. Joynt out riding with him over at Emmetsburg Sunday. The subsequent proceedings are stated by the Democrat: The horse commenced switching, and catching the line, kicked viciously. The buggy was tipped to-one side, throwing Will, to the ground. Mr. Joynt continued to ride for a short distance, but was soon landed into a barbed wire fence. One of his hands was quite badly cut, but otherwise he was not injured. Will, did not fall so well. He fell on his chin, cutting it considerably, and he was badly dazed by the fall. It was also thought that he was injured internally. He was brought to this city for medical treatment and was able to return to John J. Kane's, where he boards.

Taft's college is again in full blossom. Arrangements are now complete for its reopening on October 1, next, on a solid foundation with ten regular teachers and three^ lecturers, with a regular college course. The college is owned by private individuals, and starts out free from debt. The present structure is built of out stone, is four stories high, and 50 by 60 feet on the ground, and stands on a hill on a beautifully shaded campus of 80 acres, An additional building, 85 by 67, and four stories nigh, is now in rapid process of construction, which will be used for a dormitory, reception room and dining room, Next year, still another building will be erected, 84 by 66, and thvee stories high. The outlook is very promising for a permanent and prosperous school, A Military Question, Ed. Greendale, a member ,of Com* pajvy G, state guard, deserted from the brigade encampment at Centerville and came home to Qttuvnwa, The sheriff declined to arrest him on the order from the captain of the company and then Adjutant General Prime ordered his arrest, v Greendale told the sheriff they could only take him by force and the officer thinks he will lay himself liable by doing this. A detachment of troops has been sent after him, but Greendale says they can't take him. A case of this kind has never come np before, _ WHAT A GOOD KNIFE COSTS. Itoie Men Spend S3 For a Pocketknlfa Than liens That Amount, "More men pay $8 and upward for a pocketknife than less. That may not be the experience of all cutlery dealers, but that's the kind of trade we cater to," said a knife expert from behind the counter of a store on one of the most frequented of down town streets. "Spaniards spend the most money for knives,'' he continued. '' Spaniards who come here are very fastidious in the matter of cutlery anyway. "Where an American family in , the same circumstances will be content with the ordinary plated tableware, costing $4 or $4.60 a dozen, a Spaniard will have nothing but the finest steel with ivory handles, at $18 and over. The average business man spends usually about $3 for a four bladed knife. If he loses a knife often, as many men do, he comes down to $3, then to tl. Most expensive knives are bought for presents.' Pour dollars buys an excellent gift. Last season many knives were given for prizes at eucher parties. Such knives were usually the fancy ones, with half a dozen blades or attachments. That big 7 inch knife there is a hunter's knife. It costs $4. "A man who buys that will take it to the Adirondaoks, and when he loaves there present it to bis guide. We have one customer who buys three of those knives every year. He gives them to his guides, he Bays. We sell nearly 160 of them every year. This heavy one here With a big steel hook is a horseman's knife. It costs $7. The hook is used for digging out a stone from the horse's hoof. It has, as you see, other attachments, such as a corkscrew, screwdriver, nutcracker, awl, gimlet and a score of things for other useful or useless purposes, according to the point of view. We Bell many of them, probably more than any other one kind. Sailors usually buy pretty good knives. They and Italians go in for big, sharp knives that should be handy in case of defense. Pretty nearly every trade has a peculiar knife. That's one reason why a well equipped cutlery shop makes such a formidable display, Knives coat all the way from 60 cents to $35. We don't sell many at the latter price. "—New York Press.

The opinion is expressed by-a writer in The Mechanical News that the forge aud % furnace of the futnre will consist of a lead lined glass or porcelain vase, or cupola, filled with cold agidiflod water, to which is connected a strong positive conductor, the forge and outfit being rendered complete by a pair of tongs with insulated handles attached to a flexible negative conductor. According to this plan, the smith seizes the piece of iron which is to be manipulated, with the insulated tongs and plunges it into the sour water, which begins to boil and. bubble the instant it pomes in oon tact with the iron, the latter, in markabiy short space of time, to a red and then to a white heat, for the work of the smith. So rapidly indeed is the heating done by this means that the water and the portion of t»e iron not immersed, in the water are but slightly wanned, The principle involv* ed in this process is of a simple and weU known character—resistance producing the light and heaWit' being found that enormous, heat can he produced py Buoh' a method, much, greater, iu/fact, than is necessary to extract iron from the most refractory ores, Jt is remarked that the value of such a process will be especially exhibited in the wore opffl* plete and rapid handling of heavy jron. and steel plates and bars requiring to be hammered and welded^more vawa* ble still for tempering purposes, as fee accessary heat for t&? immersed p/"-"™ be so Quickly pbtained, w: aplctuuze W E call especial attention to our new Book Racks and Wall Shelves.
