He says! In view of certain newspaper reports which have gained wide circulation In regards to the so-called " riot" which occurred at this prison on the 29th ult., I deem It my bounden duty, both to my friends ut home and my em- ployes here to correct the errors and misstatements which have crept Into print, and will state that said reports, so far as they relate to myself, are almost utterly false and the particulars briefly stated are as follows: On the morning of the above date while the convicts were filing in to breakfast some trouble was occasioned by an unruly convict stealing up behind and attempting to assault me with a bottle. He was repulsed, however, and like the reptile he is, ran back to his seat. I escaped with but a slight scalp wound, which did me no harm whatever. I will further state that nothing approaching a " riot" took place, as erroneously stated by the papers, and the disturbance was promptly and vigorously suppressed. I was not knocked down and pounded "into a jelly," nor was I carried more dead than alive on a stretcher to .the hospital.

Respectfully yours, FREEMAN ASH. A New Way to Make Money. Lust spring T. T. Keeley distributed perhaps 10 bushels of pipe cob corn among some two dozen farmers not far from Washington, Iowa. It was a success in every case and willbe a go now. Jas, Lukavsky shelled 1,000 ears of it and on Saturday sold 10 bushels of the corn for $2 and got $2.60 for the cobs. The Pr.ess says: Illinois raises it quite extensively. They are finding uses for the cobs. Used to burn them. Now make molasses of them, and a coarse carpet for office floors, and also make an attractive wall covering, a coarse tapestry. The days of waste are passing; a use is found for everything. Another Dolllver Story. The Osage Press is responsible for the following: Congressman Dolliver's bride, as the story goes, was truly worth her weight in gold, a rich uncle giving Mr. and Mrs. Dolliver both their weight in gold. Mr. Dolliver weighs 205 and his wife 167, and mathematicians figured that the amount received was 160,000. More Alleged News. . FORT DODGE, Deo. 17.—It is rumored that a gan? of counterfeiters have their headquarters up near Algona, a town north of here. John Sharp, a shoemaker at that place, received a dollar from a certain resident and the coin proved to be made of lead. Several spurious coins have been noticed in circulation of late, which gives rise to the suspicion. Comment Unnecessary. The West Bend Journal asks: Have you noticed that only two farm products are now bringing high prices, viz: butter and hayf If you will inquire of commission houses in Chicago they will tell you tbat Palo Alto and Kossuth counties, in Iowa, send more of those two products to market than any o^her counties in the west, Could Hear the Colonel Whlpper.

Clapp, assisted by Evangelist J. B. Rice of Kentucky, bid fair to be a grand success. The house was completely filled Sabbath afternoon and evening by representative citizens of Algonit. The evangelist took for his afternoon subject. "Social Unrest; Its Cause and Cure." His torse, clear statement of facts, enforced by his southern enthusiasm, aroused the indifferent and held the close attention of the large audience from first to last. A still larger audience greeted htm in the evening, when he preached from the subject, "America's new religion." He strove to remove the prejudice of the people against the church as an organization, by showing them that the practices which they condemned in the church of the past and also the present, they themselves upheld and applauded when indulged in by the state, and he.!maintained that there was only one standard of right for church and state, for man and God, for home and heaven. His conclusion was that the state was the result and not the cause of the church. Mr. Rice has recently returned from Europe and the Orient, where he had ample opportunity for observing the signs of the. times and his addresses show that he has made the most of those opportunities and that he Is a man of wide information, education and culture, and will doubtless continue to draw crowded houses. He is ably supported by Rev. Clapp, who has charge of the singing. The subject announced for Thursday evening is, ''Christ Before Herod,'" with the dance question as a leading point. The meetings will continue in the court house each evening at 7:80. CLOAKS, cloaks, cloaks, cloaks! Capes, capes, capes! by the wholesale at Galbraith's. Holiday Excursion Rates.
