The season this summer will be from July 2 to 18 inclusive. A partial list of attractions is already published and will be of local interest; July 4 there will be an oration by a statesman of more than national fame—Hon. J. P. DolHver. Gen. Gordon has been secured for one of his matchless lectures. Rev. Robert Mclntlre of Denver, one of the most eloquent and masterly orators of the nation, will lecture and preach. Booker T. Washington, the colored college president who attracted the attention of the world by a speech at the Atlanta exposition, is booked for a lecture. Bishop Fowler, who was regarded by many as the best lecturer of the last assembly, will speak twice. The Ottumwa Male quartet, one of the best musical combinations in the west, has been engaged for the first week, and the popular Sappho Lady Quartet of Minneapolis for the second. Miss Genevleve Clark Wilson, a better singer than has yet graced our program, will be here for a week. There are other important musical attractions. Prof. Fail-bank, who served so acceptably in '94 and '95, will again be musical director, and Mrs. Emery, our gifted accompanist, is coming. Mis& Garghill, teacher at Evanston, will have charge of the classes in elocution and appear occasionally on the platform. Prof. Cumnock says the really great elocutionists of the country may be counted on the fingers of one hand, and that this lady is surely of the number. Mrs. M. .M. Bailey will lead the round table and deliver a popular lecture. Two matchless stereoptlcon entertainments are in the list. hard coal and at flight with potatoes, and the following thoffiing finds his footns as warm afid comfortable ae could be deeitad. The potatoes give Off ft bright blaze and turn into a llve^ fed mass of fife* They form very few ashes; Maj. Baldwin calculates that two and one-half scuttles of potatoes will last as long as one of hard coal, He believes the farmers Can afford to burn them Bailey W&ttts Mofe DntttS. Britt Tribune: A petition Is being circulated to Senator Funk of Esther- v.llle asking liltti to secure an appropriation to dam the outlet of the Okobojt lakes so as to keep the water and fish In Iowa.

Burt*B Proposed Fire Protection. The authorities at Burt have in view a portable engine and a sufficient amount of hose as being about what is needed. The Monitor says: A number of business firms on either side of the street have volunteered to put in cisterns, which in addition to wells about town, would insure plenty of water in available distance.

Goldstone of Corwith, who was held for obtaining money under false pretenses. The Journal gives the facts: Last May J. S.Williams sold one "A. Goldstone of Corwith a stock of boots and shoes, taking in payment therefor four notes for $115 each, payable at different dates. When the first one became due it was paid all right. But when Williams tried to collect the second note, Goldstone wrote him that he was unable to pay it and wanted more time. Mr. Williams then commenced an investigation and found that the man he had been dealing with was S. B. Goldstone, the husband of A. Goldstone, and that in settling for the goods he had signed his wife's name to the notes, representing at the time, as the evidence at the trial showed, that he was A. Goldstone. Mr. Williams had him arrested for obtaining goods under false pretenses, but through some technicality in the information he was discharged, and last week Williams had him arrested again on the same charge and brought here for preliminary examination. Goldstone is a Jew, and as shown by the evidence at the trial, has been doing business in his wife's name ever since their marriage. They have been located at Gilmore, Renwick, Corwith, and are now at Gilbert in Story county. Williams will probably lose at least $340, whether Goldstone is convicted or not. OITY SCHOOL NOTES. Several rooms in the schools are now considerably crowded, having about sixty pupils to each room. The pupils of the physics and chemistry classes are now enjoying a series of practical experiments. A new ten-foot step ladder suddenly collapsed with Janitor McMurray a few days ago, and he narrowly escaped being seriously hurt. The usual spring vacation begins next Monday, the 30th Inst., and continues one week. School opens again April 0. Owing to ill health, Miss Jones has secured an assistant to do half her work during the present week. Miss Jordan is her assistant. A new kind of crayon, said to be "absolutely dustless," is now on trial in the high school. It is certainly a great improvement over any yet used. The members of the physics class spent an hour on Monday at one of the city photograph galleries, observing the mechanism and practical workings of the camera, kodak, etc. The following were among those who visited the schools last week: Mr. Edgar Butler, Mr. and Mrs. Hutchins, Mrs. Rev. Landis and little daughter, Misses Putch and Little. The boys are beginning to agitute the question of foot ball. Of course they cannot play on the school grounds for lack of space. As to whether they play elsewhere will no doubt be left to the wishes of the parents of each boy. The ninth and tenth grades organized under a new constitution on Mon- eay last, with the name of the Delphian society, and are now a full-fledged society with an excellent constitution, The older society could no doubt get "pointers" from them.

Doxsee & Foster, Bros, in a Circus War. Detroit and Michigan is to be the scene of one of tbe liveliest circus wars on record the coming season. James A. Bailey is determined to drive the Ringling Bros, out of the territory by making it so unprofitable for them that they cannot afford to come. To accomplish this he will fight them with two shows—the consolidated Forepaugh- Sells Brothers' circus and menagerie and the Buffalo Bill Wild West. Mr. Bailey owns the Forepaugh show, and Sells Brothers are equal partners with him in the consolidation, He also controls the wild west show, Tbe plan is to send tbe former ahead of the Ring« ling Brothers and keep tbe latter close behind them, billing both shows where- ever the advertisements of the Ringling Brothers' circus are displayed, The Barnuro & Bailey show will spend the season in the eastern states unless it should become necessary to bring it west to assist in tbe overthrow of the Rlnglings, Tlie Boom »t Hanna, The new town in the southeast cor* nerof Kossuth is on a boom.
