Remnant bale. We have just gone through our stock and have a big lot of remnants of all kinds, which we are selling at prices Far Below the Cost to manufacture. Come now and get a bargain. G. L Galbraith & Co. The following questionable stot'y Is sent out from Des Moines! The session of the legislature next winter will be made sensational by reason of a combine that has been effected in the senate to fight the new code. The session will be called by the governor for January 19, and is expected to last about fifty duys. Last winter, when the code revision was under consideration, a sensation was caused by ft fight which Senator Healy made against it, He declared that the revision had been drafted by the commissioners In the interests of the railroads and that It hud been skillfully manipulated so that all the vitality and effectiveness of the state's strong railroad laws was removed, and yet this had been so cleverly done that the new code was expected to be adopted without the changes being observed or their importance discovered. Senator Healy's fight had the effect of forcing a special session for code revision. Now It develops that Mr. Healy and six other senators have entered into an agreement to make a united fight on the code. It is understood that Senators Junkin of Red Oak, Garst of Carroll, Funk of Spirit Lake, Everall of Parmeraburg, and two others are in the combine. The seven agreed on the last day of the winter session that they would prepare themselves during the summer to make a bitter fight against the code. They have been secretly at work .ever since and have been communicating together at frequent intervals. The result is, it is claimed, that they are prepared to show the whole revised code is full of evidence bearing out their charges. the spectators, but rather unpleasant because of the wet clothes, for the participants.

Yours Water Not Sufficient. L. H. Mayne writes up the Fourth -regiment encampment at Okoboji. He says: In some respects the camp was the most successful that has been held since the writer belonged to the I. N. G. There was less drinking and carousing among the boys, Bind in consequence, less sickness. It is a fact that none dispute that the fellows who fill up on beer and whisky, and then go out into the hot sun to drill, are the ones that usually fall from the effect of the heat. While the men were more abstemious than usual, we are sorry we cannot say so much for some of the higher officers, and judging from the bottles that were carried from their tents, we should imagine they were decidedly afraid to drink lake water. Example is better than precept, and officers who so severely condemn the men for drinking, as the officers of the Fourth regiment have in the past two years, should by all means refrain from it themselves. _ In Honor of Ex-Supt, Hughes.
