This event will be under the direction of a state commission appointed by Governor Drake. The following gentlemen con' stitute this commission: P. M. Crapo, Burlington; Col. John Scott, Nevada; George C. Henry, Burlington. At the last session of the legislature the sum of $10,000 was appropriated of the state's funds to be used for the celebra* tion, providing Burlington raised a like amount.' Burlington 'raised more than the amount required and is work- Ing hard to provide a suitable program for the entertainment of the citizens of Iowa and the guests of the state. Invitations have been sent to President Cleveland, members of the cabinet, governors of all the states, and other prominent men. Many of them have signified their intention of being present.

In addition, claws, both of bears and eagles, are found well preserved 'and all have small holes bored In them, evidently having, been strung and worn as necklaces.

LANDS IN JAIL AT LAST. AT IRVINGTON, IOWA. A Hurt YoutH Released Prom Custody lu Kossuth Is In For a Term at West Union. Some months.ago a boy from Burt, known as Swipes, was in jail in Algona for stealing a gun and some other things from Stelser, the man who shot young Heath. He seemed more sinned against than sinning and was let go. A month ago, in company with Richard Koepke, a son of John Koepke, he skipped out, taking a buggy belonging to John. Last week Henry Koepke, a brother, got a letter from the youth stating that Richard was in jail in West Union and in need of money, Henry went to West Union to help hie brother, but found Swipes himself behind the bars, and his brother at work near Waterloo. The Monitor tells the story and adds; Swipes was behind the bars for stealing a team or horse anil buggy. A farmer had just driven into town and had no sooner tied them when they were swlpe'd by Swipes, and he was caught after a hard chase and brought back, He will probably remain in the pen now several years. It is said that he bad disposed of the Koepke rig the boys started out with and that he was wearing a new suit of clothes. He tried to induce Henry to extend him financial aid, saying that he had been in a fight and be had a light fine to pay, But Henry had learned the facts and he proposed to let him paddle his own canoe, and he returned home. GEO, Mr. Poison died, being ah invalid When he came here. The funeral will take place this afternoon at 8 o'clock, Conducted by Rev. Plummeh Mrs. Pol" son was a lady about 60 years of age and was highly respected by all who knew her, She leaves two sons that are running the farm and two married daughters in the south pat't of the state to mourn her loss. Mr. M. Corey met with ad accident yesterday morning.whtoh might have been fatal. He has been sick and under the doctor's care for some time. In giving him medicine through mistake they gnve him a dose of carbolic acid. It seems that the bottle that contained the medicine and'the acid bottle sat side by side and look very much alike, and when the time came to take his medicine it was given from the wrong bottle. The doctor was called but before he arrived they had given him an antidote which relieved him and he is much better now. Rev. Southwell of Algona held the fourth quarterly, conference here for Elder Black Sunday evening. He preached a good sermon which was well received by all who heard him. A good many of our citizens look in the reunion at, St. Paul this week. Mrs. H. L. Vesper is not expected to live. She is very low with typhoid fever.
