Gome now and get a bargain. G. L. Galbraith & Co. J. W. Wadsworth ffooa to Des Motnes Monday to make arrangements for the sale of tickets for the state fair. R. B. Warren will go later and assist him. Mr. Wadsworth has his plans perfected for some important changes la the manner of handling tickets. He will be able to report, for instance, exactly the number of complimentary tickets used each day, also the number of press tickets used. This haa never been done before and all sorts:, of rumors have been set afloat that could not be officially contradicted. The fair opens next week Friday, and continues through the following week. The exhibits will be very large and the attendance promises to be large also. The most sensational event will be the collision between the railway engines. The track has been laid in the middle of the race grounds,, and the engines will go at a 45-mile-an-hour spood. The entries insure some fine speed exhibits, and everything points to a successful fair. . The Milwaukee Dining Car. The Garner Signal says some Britt young men got on the Milwaukee " traveling saloon," as it calls it, last Friday to get beer, expecting to get off when the train stopped at the railway crossing. The train made no stop, and the boys were carried by. To show their displeasure at the negligence of the train men to comply with the law, they jerked the bell rope until it broke, and the conductor appearing about this time succeeded in causing a temporary suspension of hostilities. The party sat down at one of the tables and called for more beer and as they imbibed became more hilarious, and'finally, in the exuberance of their spirits threw the glasses, dishes and silverware on the tables out of the windows, and were only prevented from doing more damage by the appearance of Sheriff Dickerson, who happened to be on the train. Upon the arrival of the train at Garner the hilarious youths got off and returned to Britt on the freight which was on the siding, but before leaving they politely informed the train men that if the railroad company wished to do anything about the matter they, the boys, would be found at Britt when wanted, and also that they believed they had a better case against the company and proprietors of the saloon car than the company had against them.

A description of the game would not give an idea of its interest. It must be seen to be appreciated. In the evening the celebrated Andrews Opera company of fifty people, a sterling musical organization so well known throughout the country, will present the beautfful comic opera, "Pinafore," on a scale of magnificence never before attempted. The deck of a man of war, riding at anchor upon the lake, will serve as the stage, Sir Joseph and hie feminine kin will go aboard from an admiral's launch. His coming will be heralded by the boom of a cannon. Every accessory that will lend realism will be utilized. The scene will be made spectacularly beautiful by the glorious wealth of light from 10,000 candle-power calciums. Splendid band concerts throughout the day.

The fire was soon six miles by a party of politicians returning from a deoate. Will. Williamson was stacking hay with his father five miles southeast of Ruthven hist Thursday. Something was wanted on the ground and Will started to slide down the stack, when he struck a fork handle which entered his body six or seven inches. Dr. Baldwin was called at once and dressed the wound, but the Appeal says he is a very sick man and suffering much pain. Mr. Lattimor, on the Addison Fisher farm south of Win. Shanor's northeast from town, had his barn struck by lightning during one of ,last week's storms, and burned down. The Monitor says: He succeeded in getting all his horses out, but Geo. Koestler had 850 bushels of barley and Wm. Shanbr 400 bushels of oats stored therein, all of which was consumed. The born .was 24x80 with no insurance. Lewis Miller of LuVerne met with a bad accident a week ago Sunday while at the Des.Moinea river with a party of friends. He was up in a tree after grapes and in bending down a limb it broke and he fell head first to the ground, striking on his hands, throwing both his wrists out of joint and splintering a bone in his right arm. The News says he will be unable to do any work for some time, John Parish of -Woolstock, Iowa, while stacking hay six miles north of Webster City, encountered a huge rat, that in order to escape the tines of the pitchfork, ran up his trousers leg. Just as the rat was coming out at the waistband Parish seized it with his right hand and the rat showed fight, Before he could get it at a disadvantage it buried ita teeth in his left hand through the bone and the fleshy part of the hand and hung on until Mr. Parish Sr. made a lasso of binding twine and choked the varmint until it let go its hold. The rat has been placed on exhibition at Woolstock in one of the stores and is pronounced the largest ever encountered in that section of the state. Parish's.arm and hand are badly swollen and the doctors fear he will lose both, and think it will be lucky if his life is saved.

It was found impracticable to go ahead with any plans until another meeting of the old settlers had been held, If the day is pleasant every resident of over 20 years should be on hapd with a clean diokie and a big lunch. Some Swea City young men, who helped John Hart pay his fine last week, wanted all mention of bis arrest kept out of the papers. If this had been Hart's first drunken spree it might Have been a reasonable request, But when a young man comes to town drunk, steals a suit of clothes, and is an old'tirae offender, it would seem that a reasonable publicity might serve to check his career if any check Js possible, These young men write a very caustic letter to TUB UPPER DES MoiNES about the' injury it has done Hart, If we may be permitted to judge Hart has done all the injury to. himself. All he has to do is to keep sober, and if this lesson is npt enough, the nest one will be -more effective if the A-lgopa authorities and papers have it to dispense. First Buyers Have First Choice.
