Wyinnu, of Mitchellville, aged about 50 years, took a dose of strychnine, from the effects of which she died an hour later. Her mind had been somewhat unbalanced for a number of years. Eeel & Souter, druggists of Oskaloosa, have been closed by the sheriff. Their liabilities were only 81,600. while their assets were double that amount. Poor collections arid shrinkage of business caused the failure. Fifty citizens of Creston have organized themselves into a company and will send one of their number to Colorado to prospect for gold. They pay monthly assessments of a few dollars and this sum will sustain .the prospector while lie delves into the bowels 01 the earth after gold. ' The jury in the 6as6 of Wlliium J. iHelda, of .Cedar Tails, on trial at , Independence, charged with fraudulent banking, returned a verdict of "guilt}'." The case will be carried to the supreme court. The cases against Charles Fields of the same character will be pushed through soon. A man aged 25, supposed to be Thomas Jlonaghan, of Davenport, wai dragged from the river at the foot oi Southeast Sixth street, lies Moines, by passers-by at 10 o'clock at night. He -was intoxicated and half frozen anc had either fallen into the river or been assaulted. The police think the former theorj*- is correct. A telegram conveys the news that A L. Leens, a former prominent citizen of Creston, has suicided at Uutte, Mont. Mr. Leens was a single man and for years private clerk in Mastei "Mechanic Eckerson's office of the Burlington road at Creston. He also served as a councilman. His motliei still resides there. 2 These additional apointments have been made by the governor: Fish commissioner, Oeo. E. Delcvan, of Bmmettsburg; state dairy commissioner, W. K. Boardman, of Nevada state veterinarian, Dr. J. I. Gibson, o: Denison; librarian, Mrs. Lena Hixson Copei of Marshall town; Custodian oi the capitpl, George Mctzger, of Davenport; labor commissioner, W. E, O'Bleness, of Des Moines. Willie Neet, a boy about 18 years old, was run over by a freight train on the B., C. K. & N. Reiubcck. Both legs Were horribly 'iriangjed anc will have to be ' amputated. Tho d.octors say. there is no hope for his recovery. He was standing- on the platform of a caboose, and ; it sudden jar of the train while switching threw him off with' both legs on the rail. Tho ears yyere backed over him. Quite a sensation was precipitated upon the people of Primghivr when a procession of ladies, headed by Mrs. F. D, Mitchell, started about .town with petitions to secure the signatures of voters for the purpose of closing the saloon, While there is only one saloon m town, yet it is claimed it has been run in open violation of the mulct law. The women say the war is now on and op to s£ay unti} the saloon is closed, jmd until every drug store is run strictly in accordance with the law, John McGeo, fprmerly of Lovilla, serving an eighteen-year &enteuce for murder, eight years of which have expired, has been pardoned by the g-overjw conditionally upon future g-ood, behavior, McGeo had a brother sai4 to l)Q implicated in the saroo <?rjine, who was sentenced foi' life, but i obtained & new ti'iul and Reaped ft six niqnths' sentence }n juil. pardon fead been pending nil tbwugb ,ps;*Governor (Jackson's Druet .

At tiubuqne a few mtJi-ntngs Michael Kiley, a teamster, entfcnm the Diamond Ilotise saloon, sank into A chair and became at once stupid and «*y.iU«. The patrol was summoned arid Kiley was removed to the hospital. tnvestigation showed a VFOttnd on tho head and a, fractnfc of the sktill. There is no hope of i-ecovef y. It is believed he is the victim of a HinrderoTJs assault, as he had told his, children that a hian threatened to lay hina ottt. The case against tlenry Roddis, ol Cherokee, who, it is charged, left n wife in Milwaukee during the war and has since lived with another woman by whom he has several children, will soott come up for trial at Cherokee. While Roddis and his family deny the charge, it is asserted that Roddis made a trip to South Dakota about a yeat previous to the time of the first exposure and there obtained a divorce from the Milwaukee woman. It is further asserted that thereupon the woman recognized as his wife took a trip north and that they were then married. The Rodclis family assert it is a case of blackmail and declare their readiness to meet the charges. The county attorney of Plymouth has been instructed to bring suit against the bondsmen of absconding Treasurer Kirseboin, unless a settlement is made by April 1. When Kirsebom fled, leaving a shortage of $10,305, it was supposed that the bondsmen would be liable in proportion to the responsibility which each had assumed. The bond was for §00.000. There were twenty-four bondsmen and ,he sums pledged were from 51,000 to 5:15,000. ' After Kirsebom defaulted, the smaller bonds-.ncu were filled with consternation to find that the liability vas per capita and not pro rata. This vill make about SGOO for each bondsman to pay. The men who signed foi' 1,000 protest against this as an njustice, and will leave the case to tho Courts, A fatal accident occurred some ten miles north of Mt. Ayr. Charles Car- inichael was driving his team 'and wagon loaded with wood along the road when a team came up behind and frightened his team, which in some way threw him under the wagon in such a manner that the hind wheel ran over his neck, jaw and face, crushing the bones in a horrible manner. He was directly in front of Mr. Fvazcr's house when run over, and he got up, walked into the yard and up to house. , Though well known by family, he was so disfigured by accident that he was not recognized. lie informed them of the accident and gave his name, when he became unconscious and remained so till late in the evening, when he died. The de- c.eased was about 50 years Of ago and leaves a wife and five' children tc mourn his sad and untimely end. Suel J, Spaulding, secretary and treasurer of the state pharmacy commission, is in the Polk county jail charged with the larceny by embezzlement' of from $10,000 to §14,000 of the state's funds. As secretary and treasurer of the commission, Spanieling- was also custodian of the funds .derived by the state from the issue of licenses to itinerant peddlers of medicines, and it is this money that he has taken. His thievings have extended over a period of more than a year. The information charging him with embezzlement wa.f Sworn to by Fletcher Howard, W. L. Lelancl and J. II. Pickett, members of the commission. He entered a plea oi not guilty to tho charge in the information first, and then'waived examination, and. was put under $.3,000 bonds. He did not furnish bonds and wna locked up in the county jail, The grand jury which will take up his case will bo convened on tile afternoon of April 0.

DoU liver, as temporary chairman of the republican state convention, yesterday: Gentlemen of the Convention: 1 will not take up the duties of this chair without trying to express, even though in a meagre way, my gratitude for the honor Which your kindness has bestowed upon me. It Is not the flrst evidence I nave had of the good will of the republicans of Iowa, and your action today only adds to the Increasing obligation i 1 n £ who ls so boor - even ln thanks, TlwU he cah hardly keep up the Interest in his debts. I have come from the national capital, where I left the congress engaged In a protracted conference over the disagreeing votes of the two houses—a situation ^specially adapted to the case of a congressman about to set out on a journey; nor is there a better place for the renewal of a man's political strength, a more truly medicinal atmosphere, than this goodly city, after its annual surrender to the Invading hosts of the republican party. It touches the heart and kindles tnc imagination to look into the faces of an assembly like this; for, In a large sense, the state of Iowa Is here, exultant and eager to realize the great and honorable ambition In which all her people have a share. Those of us whose duties bring us much Into the company of strangers and travelers, giving us a I passing Interest In the conditions of life I in other sections of pur common country, do not need the testimony of out- eiders to stimulate our loyalty to Iowa, and we know that you, at least, will not think hard of us for believing that there is no land fairer than our own—that there Is no place like home.

Tils destination was Chicago. Tho stock was purchased for the market by yoimg Sampson, his father going surety on the notes. Carl Sampson, Jr., is a • married man, and his wife and two children remain on the farm. Nothing- has been heard from Sampbon since he left— that 5s, direct. A re&idont of Kldora, it is alleged, happened to be in Chicago shortly after Sampson and his stock arrived there, and, UK he was ^cunning the arrivals at the Atlantic; hotel, found inscribed on the register "Carl Sampson and wife, Kldora, Iowa," Mrs, Sampson was all thib time on the farm Jn Grundy.

There Is no equal area of the earth, in my latitude, where the same number of people make such an annual contribution to the real wealth of the world as the two millions who possess the uplands between our two great rivers. Even in times of hardship and depression, whether arising from too small a precipitation of rain or too large a precipitation of democratic votes, there is no similar population that enjoys a surer refuge from want and hunger. We have at least bread, and to spare, and surely the Lord, who Is thought to temper the -wind to the shorn lamb, will not overlook the case of an innocent community just getting through the winter of a democratic ad- mlnstratlon. The history of low'a is republican In principle, if riot in name, from the pioneer settlement of the territory. The first case, in the first volume of the Iowa Reports, at the July term, 1839, anticipates the statement of the primitive, republican faith. It is entitled "In the-Matter of Ralph." The lawyers that argued It and the judges that decided it are all gone from the memory of men; but there the decision stands at t'he very sources of our civil polity,'a vlsl-. ble way-mark in the progress of public) liberty. It decided that "the law should extend equal protection to men of all colors and conditions," and that no hu, man being could be legally deprived oi his liberty within the territory of Iowa "We think, therefore," 'said the chief justice, "that the petitioner should bo discharged from all custody and re. stralnt and be permitted to go freo while he remains under the protection of our lows." The volumes of out state reports have increased to near a hundred, and the opinions of our high, est courts are everywhere cited with respect, but that brief decree, covered with the dust of half a century, Is still a firm foundation for the jurisprudence of a. free commonwealth. The principle It contains, affirmed by the considerate judgment of mankind and blessed by the gracious fiather of Almighty God has grown to the full size of the nation It Inspired the loftiest debate in the annals of the English speaking race. It gave to the senatet he fa-me of Sumner, and to the house the traditions of John Qulncy Adams. It created the republican party and filled the years erf Its youth with legends of patriotism and liberty, It brought a million and a halE of men to the glorious standard of tho young Fremont. It made the cabin In, which Lincoln was born more loyal than al'l the palaces of the earth. It armed the volunteer host oif the national defense, and has counted the humblest American soldier an Immortal comrade of Grant and Sherman. It lifted an outcast race from the degradation of the slave Into the light of freedom aind rewrote the constitution of the United Stated in the Interest of civilization. Nor will Its work be done until the lowliest citizen anywhere under tho flag of the republic may 'look for the- proteetion of his equal rights, in perfect security, to the law of the land We have heard It said that American politico IH a corrupt and a corrupting thing, sometimes by persons who affect a moral elevation above the; general level of the world, from which they diligently advertiBe their culture and patriotism—a counterfeit culture and a bogus patriotism: Hornctirries by travc-1- erw from afar, llki: Bunor Dun Victor Concaa, flic- valiant mariner ot Spain, Who brought the caravtlB of Colurnburf. to the world's fair, anr] the other day f told the Geographical »or;lety of Madrid that the United BtatfeH government IB no Immoral "that people do not care to wit next poimclanu at banqueta," and BonrxstlmeK by our own agents in foreign capitals, a« when, last November, the amljiuiKHtlvr of the United Statea to Orc-at Britain delicately confided to the arci)ite<* of the Philosophical society ol Edlnburg-h the cheerful Information that the IwjiwIiUlv*; uittmmWt-ti ol the United 8taU'* had been turned, by jobber* and cnafferero, Into market place* --'•-- Jf-tfteJaUon l» bought and »old, J 1 the other day from thti Yrtm league at New England the killlliiii ot t»l# extraordinary It.its a- pawphkt at forty-nine . _ .

This Is the semi-centennial of Iowa and the fortieth annual contention, of the republican narfv In tHc asser-h y. and sitting by quiet firesides throufcii out the state, are men who, in all thes years,, through evil and throxigh goo report, have followed the fortunes o the party and have kept US faith. \Vitl ho motive but the sense of duty the: have cherished Ita principles in the! nearts, and have trained their childr<? in its unselfl;*! service. These are tl; potent Influences that mold the progret of nations, that matura the strength c jts political parties, that make publi ilfe honorable. These are the men an tvomen who. for thirty years, wlthot reserve and without a dissenting vole' Save given an unwavering approbatio to the political career of William 1 Allison. From this council chamber c the party his constituents, those wh have accepted hia leadership from th beginning of his public life, send greet Ings from the old homestead to th scattered children of Iowa, wherevc their lot is cast. Nor do we appe.' without confidence to the neighbors < Iowa,' to the great communities thr touch our borders, that share our Inte: ests and have never called In vain upo the good will of our people, to join wit us In honoring the man, who, In a tri. pense, has been tho trusted represent. 1 tlve, not alone of the political convii tlons, but of the material concerns c the whole Mississippi valley. The di jnand of the hour Is for somebody wh understands the every-day business c the government of the United Stater who can read the account books o both sides; what we take In and who we pay out. We offer to the natlone service a statesman trained in the put lie business, who has left the Impress c tils practical wisdom on every revenu neasure enacted since the Thirty-eight] congress, and under whose eye ever: item for every expropriation bill fo ;/iarly a. generation has passed. A training like that, seldom a-r preached in American public life, wouli >f itself bring hope and deliverance t 1 ;he uneasy treasury of the Unite; fetates. We have just now a busines nanagersent thr-t h?.g neither the en >rgy to save tho Internal revenue fron the hands of distillers, nor the custou liouse from tho ingpnuity of Importers. Within a year every shady scheme o vndervaluation has come forth to enjo;i 3. season of ad valorem duties, untl reputable merchants are already ask 'ng the 'hovvae committee on ways anc moans to exact a peddlers's license from the agents of -foreign factories, ir ;jrder that legitimate merchants maj not be driven from the trade. Inadequate and unjust as the present lav/ Is. F. do not hesitate to say that an ef factual collectic'a of the revenues au .hortaed by its tonns would go far to //ard covering the current deficit In th' receipts. We need somebody in chargi >,vho can tell the difference between i dollar collected and a dollar borrowed I am not here to frame a railing accii Ballon -against the chief magistrate, nor ag-ainst the secretary of the treasury, •who Is doing the 'best 'he can to live down his previous reputation. In ou anxiety to attack the administration w. ought not to forget the re-publicai party authorized the resumption anc the maintenance ol" specie payments nor was any better service ever run dered the American people than the sol enm act of the government whlcl avoided the reserve; by which even American promise has been kept ar good as gold In all the market place; of the earth. For one, I -yvant that exact equality of paper with coin, and o: all existing coins of the same denomination 'with each other, Inviolably preserved. That man is a poor student of the national welfare who would invite the gold gamblers to bring back their tables to the centers of American business, that thieves may again fatten on the fluctuations of the money of the American people. Without disparaging any republican leader, we are justified In the conviction that the troubled interests of trade and commerce would find a welcome security In the nomination of the man -who was generously commended to Garfleld, in the letter of Mr. Blaine, which Is at once a tribute to Senator .Allison's pro-found mastery of the problems of national finance, and a memorial of the friendship which began on the day they entered the house of ' representatives together, and ended • only in the valley of the shadow ol death. For months the maintenance of specie payments has been made difficult, not by any fear of our own people that our paper is not good, that is to say, will not be paid on demand, but by a long-standing shortage in the; treasury, coupled with industrial conditions that have induced a steady drainage of gold out of the country, in addition to its usual movement, to pay for goods and merchandise bought abroad and no longer fully paid for by the sum total of current exports. It Is not a. novel situation. and It Is not one than can be.- relieved by hurried experiments in finance It looks to me like a fac simile of the state- of trade In 1855, and the Interesting- years that followed, when Horace Greeley, In the old Tribune of the common people, lifted his voice In behalf of thf wrecked and prostrated industries of his country, In words, every one of Ihejn,. applicable to, our present affairs He pointed out the idleness of the workmen and the Blgnki of paralysis that had fallen upon every pursuit in the couri- !ry. He was entitled to give his opinion, because, in 1840, he had warned his countrymen of the disasters that were tffore them.

It proposes to keen on borrowing money, exposing the treasury on tho one hand to the approach of those who Seek the profit-? of taking gold out. and leaving It helpless on the other hand against the thrift of those who seek tho profits of puttittc gold In. It protest that there is money enough, or soon will be. and has kept publishing estimates of receipts that have never come, with an enthusiasm ''.-. indicates in the bosom of the sec- ••-tary a serene triumph of hope over •cperlence. The populist remedy, a .'rnedy in which an influential group f other parties unite, Is to close matters 'P by abandoning the present basis of vmerlcan business, on which all exlst- ig contracts stand, and taking refuge .•om public and private creditors alike •i the unlimited Issue of silver dollars, .ratuitously manufactured for the own- r out of material worth In the neigh- orhood of 60 cents. The republican arty, without concealing its desire to ontlnue the largest practicable use of ilver short of introducing dangerous .'enients of disturbance and fluctuation into our coinage, refuses to follow the nunsel of either. The true remedy lies, iot in perilous experiments in banking, •urrency and coinage, but in the prompt revision of an adequate national rev- nue. That is the flrst step, and it •annot be taken too soon. It is a pitiful and wicked thing to iave as good a man as Uncle Sam, who •as always done a middling good busl- .ess in his own name, standing in front f an empty safe, talking In a whisper vlth a group of gentlemen with an ap- •etlte for fresh bonds. But the Increase f revenue, In order to be useful, must •2 brought into the treasury in such a •ay as will protect the occupations of -ur own people. It is an interesting act that th!a country never hacl a rev- nuo tariff that produced a sufficient •evenue and never had a productive tar- ff that did not produce a sufficient rev- ;ntie. A community that has sense tc /.:y what it needs at homo always has noney enough left to gratify a reason- tble taste for luxuries and novelties ol oreign production. The administration jf General Harrison, when every Amer- 'can factory was busy, witnessed also :he high water mark in the statistics ol nir foreign trade. A system that con- lomns an Industrial population to idle- less by enabling outside producers tc lisplace the products of domestic in- -Histry destroys the market itself, a '.rnnsaction equally fatal to industrj ind commerce. It Is not an accident .iat two democratic presidents, fortj voai-s apart, have spent the most oi 'heir time consulting with syndicates '.bout the price of bonds. The bond nabit and the tariff, reform habit seeir to be kindred infirmities, and one can. not be successfully handled unless th< other is eradicated. I have met person• who are at a loss to know what will be- r;ome of the farmer if we take from thf democratic party the occupation thej iav« worked at so long—lifting the bur. dens off of agriculture. It gives me pleasure to believe that the farmers ol tio United States have already hac about as much to do with the democratic party as a prudent regard foi the value of their movable assets wll warrant. They have seen the markui in Which they pay their taxes filled with the productions of Canada, Mexicr .ind the islands of the sea, brought hei '-y the invitation of Brother Wilson o .Vest Virginia. They have seen the m'arket-s of Spa'n sh America, which were opened by pro /islons of law shaped under the hand o William B. Allison, shut in their face by the stupidity of the fifty-third con Tress. They have seen the duty on ra\ sugar, made free on the motion of Joh H. Gear, restored upon such terms a n-ave induced the nations-of. Europe, n longer bound by the reciprocity treaties af 1890, to totally exclude the meat pro ducts of the United States upon th false pretense th'at our cattle and hog- are diseased. They have seen their cus tomers impoverished, and the cities anc towns in which they must sell nearls all they produce, if they sel'l it at al stripped of their power to buy. T'hej have seen the domestic consumption o' wheat fall off in 1S95, compared witl 1S92, according to the report just pub llshed of the bureau of statistics 96 000,000 of bushels; of corn, 93-1,000,000 o bushels; o'f beef cattle, nearly a millloi head, and all farm products in a simi lar measure. I have heard it said tha all this comes in a devious way through a wilderness of figures, and a tangle- jungle of theories, from the crime a 1873. I tell you that it has come, be lore the eyes of all men, in broad day light, straight from the blunder of 1892 The same experience that haa taugh the -working Man the connection between the election day and the pay day has given the American farmer glimpse of the difference, from his standpoint, bet-ween a free trade soup ticket 'and a republican time check If we never knew it before we know iio w tnat the best customer of the farm is an American artisan, with steady employment and good wages, sitting at the head of his table, surrounded bv his family, with a fixed prejudice agains oleomargarine and filled cheese, and aj established taste for fresh rnffat anc wheat bread. That is the customer for whoso prosperity the state of Iowa foi (owing faithfully the counsel or William B. Allison, casts its full vote in both houses of congress. We are In favor of that customer. We do.not want his job transferred to the other side, nor his wages reduced to the forelBn level, nor hie weekly earnings paid In coins and currency about the value of which good men are likely to differ.

TALL BEAUTIES. Six-Foot Women Attract'.ve In Form, Face anil Character. Women seem to be on tho increase, not numerically, be it said, but physically, says an exchange. Some are so tall that beside them many men seem pigmies. Many of the well-known beauties are tall. Among those of English birth there is the duchess of Portland; she is nearly-six feet high. Then there is Lady Wolvertou, daughter of Georgina, countess of Dudley. Both mother and daughter are but a hair's breadth beneath the six-foot measurement. Then there is the duchess of Newcastle, Lady Francis Hope's (May Volie's) sister-in-law; she is als-o a daughter of Anak. And the daughters of Lord Londesborough are "more than common tall." Then, of course, the newest duchess of Marlborough is very "long drawn out," while the "Lily Duchess" of Marlborough is far beyond medium height. This "advanced" state of things being the case in feminiue ranks, low-heeled shoes now occupy a recognized place in good society and have figured at several great weddings. The two principal brides of the year 1895 were much taller than their bridegrooms, and their ordinary high heeis are renounced for awhile, so-.that tlifi difference in stature may'not appear too remarkable. In such instances a low coiffure is considered a delicate mark of attention from the bride and it is retained several months till other conspicuous couples arise and claim public attention. A very beautiful and most divinely tall woman is Miss Julia Neilson, the English actress. Miss Neilson measures about five feet eight or nine inches, but so perfect is her figure and so graceful her movements that she seems not an inch too tall. She is the wife of Mr. Fred Terry, a younger brother, of Miss Ellen Terry. Mrs. Terry, aside from her beauty and her great gifts as an actress, is one of the most charming of women personally. THE PIE IN BOSTON. The Modern Athene Bats 30.0OO Flos Knell Day. Pie is served at all the hotels in Boston, and it is known and loved in every home, says the Boston Globe.' Keeping this fact in mind, it is interesting to make a few figures on tho number of pies eaten in the city. • Assuming that one person in every four in a population of 500,000 eats one piece of pie every day, and the estimate is a conservative one, it will be seen that the daily consumption of pie is 125,000 pieces, or 31,250 whole pies, figuring that each pie was cut in four pieces. Reckoning, however, on five pieces to the pie in a few cases, or even six—for boarding-house keepers must live—the odd 1,250 pies may be thrown off, and. the figures declare that 30,000 pies are consumed in Boston every day. If a barrel of flour will make 500 pie crusts, then sixty barrels of flour are used, daily in Boston for pie crust alone, op 21,900 barrels a year, worth, at ?5 a barrel, $109,500. A fortune in pie crust: Assuming that each pie lias a value of jj ten cents, it is found that the value of a day's supply of pie for Boston is ?3,000, and a year's supply $1,095,000. If each pie were an inch thick, one day's supply, if placed one on top of the other (supposing this could be done witli->ut-injury to the bottom pie) would ~iUce a column 2,500 feet high, or eleven times as high as Bunker Hill monument, with sixty-nine feei to- spare.
