DCS MOIXES, May 7.—The Iowa "Weather and Crop Bulletin says: "There are no complaints of superabundant rainfall, and there are comparatively few reports of damage caused by the heavy storms of the week.

Pasturage is abundant, and the hay crop promises to be unusually heavy. Plowing and planting were retarded by the wet weather in all sections where there was an excess of moisture. In the southeast, and portions of other southern districts, about half the usual acreage of corn has been planted; and in all of the southern half of the state a good beginning has been made. Within the coming week, if weather is favorable, the planting operations will he general." GRAIN MEN SUE FOR S1.OOO.OOO. Iowa Shipper* In 'Northwestern Counties Go 'After KallroadB.

There are 123 contested delegates and the national committee must hear those cases and determine which delegates are entitled to places on the temporary rolL This will take time, and it Will be better for the committee to attend to this business in advance of the meeting of the convention in order that there may be no delay. Of course the titles to the seats will be ultimately determined by the convention, but it devolves upon the national committee to give preliminary hearings in order to make up a temporary roll.

Holmes, was hanged yesterday in the county prison for. the killing of Benj. F. Piet.«-l. Twenty minutes after the drop fell he was pronounced dead. The execution was in every way devoid of sensational features. To the last he was self-possessed and cool, even to the extent of giving a word of advice to Assistant Superintendent Richardson as the latter was arranging the final details. He died as he had lived, unconcerned and apparently thoughtless of the future, even with the recollection still vividly before him of the recent confession in which he admitted the killing of a score, of both sexes in all parts of the country. Almost his last .words were a point blank denial of any crimes committed except the deaths of two women at his hands by malpractice. Of the murder of several members of the Pietzel family he denied all complicity, particularly of the father, for whose death he stated.he was unjustly suffering the penalty. Then with the prayer of the spiritual attendants still sounding in his ears and with a few low spoken words to those about, the trap swung and beyond a few incidental post mortem details, the execution which culminated one of the worst criminal stories known to criminology, was ended, PHILADELPHIA, May 0.—The body of H. H. Holmes was taken from the vault in the Holy Cross cemetery and lowered into a grave ten ft-et deep. The box which contains the body, embedded in cement whiwh has already hardened, weighs over a ton, and was too wide to be lowered into an ordinary grave. At the conclusion of the burial service a layer of cement two feet thick M T as piled upon the coffin, and his tomb will be a soliij wall of roeic, The precautions were the, result of Holmes' lust wishes,, i\u feared tlu< dissecting table more tlmn lie 4W Ul« grave.

Bullew.of Stuart, la., has been allowed a patent for a campaign badge in the form of a bee adapted to be readily fastened to the lappel of a coat. On t.he winss are fixed the portraits of candidates in such a manner that they are concealed when the wings are folded, but by pressing a detent the wings are expanded and the portraits and sentiments of the wearer flashed upon observers. To be the author of a' machine that will give aid, comfort and delight to the present and coming generations may be* a nobler triumph than to win a presidential race. It is a hope, too, that many may realize. The ambition of the humble mechanic that looks for honor and fame by seeking to give the world a benefaction in the shape of an invention, is far above the ''infatuation" which ruins "presidential candidates." The names of American inventors and public benefactors will be revered when the names of some of our presidents and would-be presidents wilj be forgotten, or only remembered with incliftereuce, regret or contempt. Valuable information ubout obtaining, valuing and selling patents sent free to any address.

Few people who visit the curio stand ; on the lake front at Palm Beach, just north of the Royal Polnciana grounds,] to see the live manatee, or "sea cow,";; are imaginative enough to perceive in: the wonderful, unlovely form • of the| huge pachyderm in its cage of inade-! quate proportions the origin of the fle lightful fable of the mermaids or thel'j Grecian legends of the sirens, says the, Florida Citizen. That these did origi-; nate in this monster of the sea is indis-; putable. i The manatee, or lamanjtin, the Latin' name for which is mauatus, belongs to the gems of herbivorous cetacea, or, manatidae, its chief characteristic bfc ing its rounded tall fin, further distinguished by the presence of small flat nails at the edge of the swimming paws, in the edge of which under thef skin fingers can easily be felt. Con-, nected together as they are- by strong ligaments, they possess considerable! power of motion, whence the same man-j atee, from the Latin manus, hand. The; name sea cow originated in the si'ml', larity of the manatee's mouth and nose to that of the cow. The structure of the teeth is also distinctive; the crowns,; of the grinders are square, with tW transverse ridges, f The species, all of which are Inhabit tants of tropical coasts, feed eniirelyj' on plants and grasses which grow along* shore and on the bed of the water, t)w former made accessible -by the tide^' which after it has retired often exhibit?! plain proof 61 theiv browsing.
