Case Hinges en the Validity of the t)i- Vofce Granted tb Mrs. Chalmers— Other Nanhwest News> Some weeks ago THE UPPEtt DES MoiNEs published a sensational report from Marshalltown concerning the validity of the marriage of Mr. and Mrs. A, P. Ki-otilc of Bancroft. The facts seem to be that Mr. KronkV wife bad secured a divorce from her former husband, a young Des Motnes man by the name of Chalmers, atid had married Mr. Kronk a few weeks later. Chalmers learning of the divorce went to Marshalltown and investigated, learning as he claims that notice of the suit had been made by publication, when in fact he was and had always been a resident of the state and should have been served with personal notice. As soon as his statement was published, Mr. and Mrs. Kronk separated and she has been'living with her parents until the matter shall be settled/ But Chalmers did not stop there. He has had Mr. Kronk arrested on a charge of adultery and he was taken to Marshalltown two weeks ago for examination. As his offense necessarily t hinges upon the validity of the divorce his hearing has been postponed) and the Bancroft Register says the whole case will be disposed of next week, Feb. 3 being the day set. It also says that, there is no question but the divorce will be found to be legal. The whole case is one of blackmail or persecution. Mrs. Chalmers only lived with Chalmers a few weeks .and then left him, and for two years he never went near h'eral though knowing where she was living. It is o.nly after her divorce is granted and she is happily married that he shows up tocause what trouble he can. Mr. Kronk is clerk in Berryman's drug store in Bancroft, and an estimable young man. The U. D. M. E. A. Meeting. The Upper Des Moines Editorial association meets at Boone next week Thursday and Friday. It is expected' that 100 editors will be present, the association having grown very rapidly lately. It. is represented by four delegates at the national meeting in?

Powers of Carroll, are on the program there, The chief. address at Boone will be delivered by Judge •Kinne of the supreme court.: Henry Wallace will also be present and discuss the country paper and the farmer. The program is one of the best ever arranged for the association, Boone extends a cordial invitation, and nothing can prevent a splendid meeting. For Delegates to St. lidulB. Candidates to represent the Tenth district at the St. Louis national republican contention are already being named, Carroll county will present H. W. Macomber. The Herald-says of him: " Mr, Macomber has been a republican all his life, He wears a grand army button, which is an insignia of his patriotism and republicanism when the nation needed fighting friends. He has been active in every campaign since and has contributed freely to its support. Without asking or expecting politico} office or emoluments, he has been one of the first in every campaign to help the cause in the most substantial and liberal manner." The Herald adds that he is a fighting Allison man and will be a power for the Iowa candidate if chosen., _^^_ Forest City's Ball Team Broken. Forest City had a shooting scrape last Friday. The particulars are bard to get at, but the results are that JameaJ ^ Ames, the Forest City ball player, has a badly shattered leg, which will knock him out of his summer's work on the diamond, and we understand there is a strong possibilities of his losing the leg.

The company waited, but the bride Was not ready. A bridesmaid Was sent \o notify her that George Edward was in the oriel room and the band tinder the stairs waiting to strike up the first strains of the Wedding march. "I don't care," she potited as she threw herself disconsolately on a divan, to the great danger of her veil: "I'm not going to be unlucky all my life if I Can help it. Dear, dear, why didn't I remember it sooner." "Remember what, dear?" inquired the perplexed bridesmaid. "Why, that everything I have on is new. I did remember that if "Married in white, • You have chosen all right, but I forgot the other: "Something old and something new. Or your choice you'll surely rue. Every stitch I have on is new, and I just will not stir a step until I have something old added to my dress." "Take my handkerchief," suggested one of the girls. "What could I do with it?" whined the poor thing.. "Brides don't have pockets; neither do they carry handkerchiefs in their hands. It .would look as if I expected to cry." ; ' • " "I have a happy thought," said the bridesmaid; ' 'Exchange shoes with me.'' "They won't fit. My feet are two sizes smaller than yours." . "Thanks, awfully. Haven't you a pair of your own Oinderellas?" "Yes, I have,'' said the bride, jumping up in a hurry. '' Your head is level, dear. Look in the pink box in the chiffonier, or x in the blue one. , Oh, they won't do, they're so awfully soiled!" "Get me some bread .crumbs and a box of powder," said a practical soul in the party. '' Quick 1 I'll have them' White in a jiffy." •:, "You're just dear," said the grateful bride. "Now I shall feel that ; I am properly married, and that everything has been done to insure iny future happiness. Just one thing more for luck: "Hurtle a shoe After me—do," When the bride descended the stairs leaning on the arm of George Edward, the sweet serenity of her face was a subject of favorable comment. Her friends felt that she was, not entering unprepared upon the future awaiting her, and she'felt that way herself.'—Detroit Free Press. A DOCTOR'S YARN. it Is of Two Sinters Who Killed Their Grandfather to Ease His, Pain. This is a bit of, a true story a physician told me the other day, and it struck me as being the text for a fascinating story of the Sherlock Holmes sort. We were talking of the advisability of putting hopelessly ill persons out of their misery as soon as possible. Dr. B. didn't believe in it. ' '• '•I was asked to do it once," be said. "Two sisters asked me. to kill their grandfather, whom I was attending, He was old and could not recover. They seemed simply to pity his pain, I refused. Next morning when I called the man was dead. The nurse told me the sisters had sent her out on an errand. When she returned the windows of the sick room were open. There. was a strong odor of chloroform in the room and the man was dead.',' "And what did you do?" was asked, "Nothing. The elder sister is now under tbe care of-a specialist in nervous is. She cannot sleep. She will not allow herself to be alone a moment, and she, keeps the gas burning in her room all night. I think 'she will end in a madhouse," Isn't that a priceless bit for some an- thor'a notebook?—Washington Post.
