Des Moines dispatch: Bert Graves was found guilty in the district court of assault with intent to commit mur> der, and there is great rejoicing in local police circles. Bert Graves has been considered for years one of tho most clever criminals in the city of Des Moines. All attempts to fasten a crime upon him have been unavailing, lie recently shot Pat Murphy during a quarrel. In the superior court at Council Bluffs recently Judge McGee rendered a decision in the suit brought by Mrs. Susan A. Moore to recover |3,000 frpm the Union Fraternal Accident Association, awarding plaintiff the full amount sued for. The case is imppr- tant for tho reason that it fixes the liability of the stockholders for the claims against the defunct conc'ern, Tho association was organized in Chariton by Lucas coun'ty men, but was subsequently moved to Council fluffs, where it languished a short time and died. The last death assessment only realized 800 and when the Mopve claim was filed the company had abandoned business and made no attempt to levy an assessment that would npt bring in enough money to pay the postage. Judge McGee held that this was the fatal blunder, that the condition of the policy required the asqess- rnent if it only brought in 0 cents, He rendered a judgment against the officers and stockholders for the full amount. Other claims are dependent upon this suit, and if they are pressed tho stockholders will be impoverished. Ottumwa dispatch: Mike Evans and Fred Doud, aged respectively 18 ' and j 32 years, became enraged at the taunts of Jjmmie Bpurback, aged 13, atEldon, and procuring a chain caught him and' told him they were going to hang him.

MrYLincoln, the greatest figure of the past tempest, declared that the world "can never forget what they did." Decoration and Deed go together. Some things may cause contro- . versy, but when men have fought and bled and suffered, no wordy war can supplant their claims on our respect. Let two veterans meet who fought on opposite sides, and their stories are mingled with their tears. No Warmer comradeship, no more fraternal intercourse could be desired. There is no more honorable feeling than that of one brave man for another equally brave. Today the feeling will predominate, and-among the reminiscences of strife will be the actual over-brooding presence of peace, good will and loving unity. Decoration Day is the gift of the womanhood of our land thirty or less years ago. They gave it not with triumphant paeans of victorious rejoicing, but amid heartache and grief and tears were those-first graves decorated, the name bestowed and the date perpetuated. If there is a more sacred gift than that born of a suffering woman's holy love, one does not know it. And we are convinced that the soldier's mother who prayed for him in the closed room of intercession, and his sweetheart and his wife who loved him as none other did or could, will demand that Decoration Day shall ever represent their hearts, and its flowers their hopes beyond the veil, and its tears and joy, like rain and sunshine in spring's mingling of both, be indicative of the mingled feelings with which they re- consecrated the places where lay the dead of blue and of gray. The senates and legislatures of federal and state governments have decreed many public occasions. Hero Is one ordained by those whose common puffering and charity and patieflce have over redeemed the credit of a people, whose silence enhances their glory— the women of the war, who gave us Decoration Day.

The flght that stirr'd their blood of yore Is a vision past forevermoro; And once a year the fragrant bloom Of May falls softly on each tomb. The land is peace, the victory won, O love-invested Arlington! —T. C. Harbaugh c Extreme tired feeling afflicts nearly everybody at this season. Thd hustlers cease to push, the tireless grow Weary, the energetic become enervated. You know juat what we mean. Some men and women endeavor temporarily to overcome that Tired Feeling by great force of will. But thla 1 is unsafe, as it pulls powerfully upon the nervous system, which will not long stand such strain. Too many people " work on their nerves," and tho result is seen in unfortunate wrecks marked " nervous prostration," in every direction. That tired TO-DAY. Is not this day enough for all our powers, If its exactions were but fairly met— If not one unpaid debt Were left to haunt the peace of future hours, . And sting us with regret? Unbounded blessing lieth in Today. If we but seek we find It hidden there; It .is the golden stair, Leading, it may be, by an unknown way To all we hope or dare. From sun to sun let us this lesson learn: Upon Today bur fairest chances wait, And, whether soon or late, Our destiny upon Its hinge may'turn—• Today, sweet friends, is Fate. Annie L. Muzzey. ing is a positive proof of thin, weak, im« pure blood; for, if the blood is rich, red, vitalized and vigorous, it Imparts lifeand energy to every nerve, organ and tissue of the body.

Disasters enriched her. In strife more than in lassitude she developed her latent forces, and tho red rain of blood brought forth a harvest of devotion immortal }n our annals. The spirit of those days was rude, but she evoked great men to control thorn, and as one surveys the list of heroes, the'question forcesitself; "When phall we look upon their like again?"
