JAMES PATTERSON, Sole Agt At Irvington, Iowa, V Transoeudant Grab Apples per bushel, $0,60 A raid was '.made otl the Hotel Orleans last Week by Sheriff Narejr afid.'tt lot of beer was captured* The hotel at once anttotinced that It would close for the sSasoft, and did so. Seventy^flve guests Were compelled to go home, Senator Gear and family among the number. Congressman Henderson and family were also ousted. The management of the hotel have alwa5*B announced that they ,could not do business in competition with other resorts unless they were allowed to serve wines etc. to guests, and immunity from interference must be granted or they would close. They say now they will never reopen until they are protected. The Beacon does not enter into the merits of the case at all and makes only the following brief comment In separate items: Search warrants placed in the hands of Sheriff Narey Tuesday morning discovered beer at the Hotel Orleans, whiskey and beer at Jackson's place on the isthmus, and prohibited beverages at Fred Stanton's shanty on the upper end of the East Okopojl lake. The Hotel Orleans .closed yesterday morning. The season has been measurably successful, though financial returns are not what they should be In view of the excellent record • of the management. The Messrs. Abell have exceeded all previous endeavors at that point in giving the public a lakeside resort where the catering was above reasonable criticism and the conditions generally above reproach.

Peaches and Cream Are something you all like, Peaches are now at their best, We Have Both Routed tbe Boll. A lumberman attached to John, Crane's camp, up beyond the Katahdin Iron works 'in Maine, was tramping across to a pond late one November evening when ho ran upon a bull moose. The lumberman had no rifle, so he yelled and waved his arms, expecting that the broad antlered bnty would dash fear stricken down the mountain. But it didn't. It rushed for the lumberman. He dodged about a tree and dropped his ax. For ten minutes he dodged, half soared to death. Then he climbed the treo. The bull butted the tree with Its antlers until it swayed to and fro, and then walked away a few yards and rested. The lumberman yelled some more. When he could yell no longer, he set bis wits to work. Just above him was a dead limb.- He broke it off, and as the bull advanced again he set the wood afire and dropped it on the bull's back. With a bellow it ran down the mountain. The half frozen lumberman made a line for camp.—New York Worlfl. An Extraordinary Freak. A citizen of Tampa, Flu., is the owner of a wonderful curiosity in the shape of a pair of deer's horns in which one of the prongs ends in a startling malformation. Four inches from the place where it branches from the main horn this prong suddenly enlarges into a bulbous growth nearly as large as a man's fist, and it is in this excrescence that the wonder lies. The bulb is in the form of a hound's head, plainly showing ears, mouth, eyes, etc. It was "tak- tn in the down," and were it otherwise it is impossible that it could be a work of art, owing to the enlargement necessary for the freak.—St. Louis Republic.
