DBS MdiNES, Feb. 23.—The general assembly refused to take a holiday yesterday, both branches being hard, at work as usual, regardless of Washington's birthday. Saturday was rather an exciting day in the house. The Carney resolutions providing for a general investigation of the state institutions came up for consideration. A lively debate followed. Mr. Brant of Linn made , extended remarks, saying that inasmuch as the house had voted to investigate to a limited degree it ought to go on and make a complete investigation of everything. Mr. Crow was opposed to undertaking so big a job. A motion was made to indefinitely postpone the resolution, which motion was lost on a roll call. After further debate and numerous amendments, a motion to lay the resolution on the table was carried without a roll call. During the debate Smith of Greene said he did no't believe corruption existed in the state institutions, though prices of supplies might in some instances be too high. He favored cutting off the per diem' of the committee. The motion to indefinitely postpone was made by Mr. Wood of Madison and carried. The action of the house means that there will be no more investigations and it is believed those now in progress will amount to but little. It will be seen that very little will come out of all the newspaper noise. In the house Mr. Temple secured the adoption of an amendment to the present law in regard to the protection of concerned and are yet afraid that Something will transpire in the matter of taxation to their detriment. The farmers are not unmindful Of their in^ terests and are making their wants and wishes known by numerous letters and petitions. 1 predict that the revenue law will remain practically as it has been for 40 years, 4- -K4" .- ., • The general assembly has been in session five weeks and there has nqt been a day's adjournment, and apparently little time wasted. The committees are hard at work and it is believed that the questions involving most debate have been passed upon; Good progress will be made henceforth, but the session will last six weeks yet The adjournment will consequently be about the 6th or 7th of April. 4-4-4-' " ' Lieutenant-Governor Parrott has returned from Galveston, where ho attended the mooting of the National Editorial association. Senator Funk presided all last week with' perfect satisfaction to the senators. 4-4-4- The senate has voted to cut printers' fees as applied to original notices, sheriff sales and board proceedings 25 per cent. The newspaper men do not endorse this move and claim they, have not boon getting any too much in the past. 4-4-4- Governor Drake, assisted by his daughter Mrs. Sturdivant, and her husband, also by, Miss Mary Carpenter and two other nieces gave a reception at the Savery Friday evening to the members of the general assembly and state officers. Nearly all those invited •were present, many of the members and senators being accompanied by their wives. All their guests had a curiosity to see the governor's daughter's husband on account of the elopement so recently mentioned in the press. All were pleased with the young man VOL.

The amendment provides that no contract or agreement or the i-eceipt of any relief or insurance shall be a bar to recovery from the railway company for personal injury to its employes. Some railway companies have relief associations organized among their own employes,, therefore the object of this amendment is apparent. It is to prevent the railroad companies from setting up the relief granted by the association as- a defense against a further relief. 4-4-4- Ah effort was made in the house to repeal the law permitting aid to be voted to railroads by taxation but the same was defeated and the law remains as it is at the present time. 4-4-4- The senate has amended the code in regard to dairy interests, requiring creameries and cheese factories to furnish statistics to the dairy commissioner, and the salary of the commissioner's clerk was restored to $75 a month, 4-4-4- Mr. Hinman has introduced into the house resolutions reciting that the prices of crops are low and urging the railway commissioners to use their best endeavors to secure -a out rate in freight rates to eastern and southern markets for the next 40 days. 4-4-4- A movement is on foot creating the office of fire marshal for the entire state, the salary of such officer to be paid by the insurance companies. It is to be the marshal's business to investigate fires that have any auspicious circumstances about them and make a record for future reference, Insurance men say that incendiarism is entirely too common, A good many members, however, are afraid that a year or two after the office should be created that the salary will be changed from the insurance companies to the state and thus a new office be created. The office of fire marshal will undoubtedly have to wait. *$* -H H^ A proposition is pending before the committee on ways and means to tax gross premium receipts of our home life insurance companies. Heretofore these companies have been exempt, while companies from other states have been taxed. Naturally enough our of some means and has established a small bank at Moravia, Appanoose county. Ap .

Because they come from meteors, bodies that fall in this way are called meteorites, and for very many years past all the meteorites which have been seen to fall, or could be found, have been carefully kept, so that they may be studied. We know, too, that they have fallen in earlier times as well, because the histories of nearly all ancient peoples contain accounts of such occurrences, and of the homage paid to the "sky stones" by those who thought them gifts from the goda, or miraculous objects. It is probable that the so called goddess Diana who was worshiped by the people of Bphesus was a meteoric stone. . . A mass of iron which proved to be a meteorite was found in Texas a few years ago at the crossing of a number of trails leading in different directions. It was learned that it had been set up by the Indians as a fetich, or object of worship, and whoever passed by was expected to leave upon it beads, arrow heads, tobacco or other articles as offerings, since it was regarded as having come from the Great Spirit. Another, which fell in India some years ago, was kept decked with flowers, was daily anointed and frequently worshiped wiih great ceremony. There is preserved to this day in the parish church of Ensisheim, Alsace, Germany, a stone weighing over 300 pounds which fell in the town Nov. 16, 1492. The feing, being near at the time, had the stone carried to the castle, and after breaking off two pieces, one for himself and the other for the Duke Sigismund, ordered the remainder to be kept in the church as a miraculous object, and it still hangs there, suspended by a chain from the vault of the choir.—Oliver 0, Farrington in St. Nicholas, Horses and Flutes. "They say," wrote Ben Jonson, "princes learn no art truly but the art of horsemanship, The reason is the brave beast is no flatterer, He will throw ft prince as soon as his groom." The Greek theory of education, as we find it to Plato, was of a twof old kind-- "oneol gymnastics relating to the body, the other of music for the sake of * S 00 * state o* the eoni." Briefly, as Mr, Pater expresses it, "a gymnastic fused to music,'' This system of education pe Greefes applied »o lees to the training of horses than o* men, In the earliest extant treatise oa riding, Xenophon pointe4 out that horsemanship, Ufce Fancy Patent Flour, per sack, Bed Rose Flour, per sack, Family Flour, per sack, ....
