The tipper Dea Moines Editorial Associa- tiori to Go to Nashvillft—News of the Northwest. Clarion is enjoying a curious sensation. It is a shooting affair in which a prominent young lady appears as shoot* er while the shootee cannot be found, although blood shows that he must exist. Miss Theo Plambeck has been stopping alone at Prof. May's residence during the temporary absence of his family. An hour or two after retiring she discovered there was some one in the house, whom she describes as a short, heavy set man, and says that he was searching for plunder, using lighted matches to aid him in the work. After he had appropriated to his own use a silk dress belonging to Mrs. May, a silk waist of Miss P's, a number of specimens from Prof. May's cabinetand $3.50 in cash from a pocket book he left the house by the front door, leaving both it and the screen door standing wide open. No sooner had he left the room than Miss P. sprang out of bed, seized a loaded shot gun that was near by, rushed to the door and discharged the same at the legs of the maurauder, after which she laid down the gun and rushing across the street to Mr. Brown's residence gave the a- lurm. Blood was found on the porch floor and It is certain that whoever got the dose of shot at 12 feet was seriougly hurt, but no trace of the victim can be found. The Monitor says: As is usual in such matters various beliefs and theories are entertained, but as yet there is altogether too much mystery surrounding the affair for any one to be. in a position to give a satisfactory solution of it. ef at Forest City, was arrested.

For particular information as to the respect- ', secretary , G ailchrist, M. , «ecretary , Ph. a, Editors Will Travel. An excursion for the Upper Des Moines Editorial association is being planned by the officials of the association to take place at the close of their summer meeting, which, it is expected will be held at Webster City during the early days of October this year. The trip contemplates a visit to the Nashville Centennial Exposition, the battle parks of Ghattenooga and Chicamauga, Lookout Mountain, and possibly the battle fields of Corinth, luka and other points in Southern Tennessee and Northern Alabama and Mississippi; Memphis and other points of historic importance. Al. Adams, who is in charge, says: We have an idea that if the proposed arrangement is carried out it will be the best thing the Iowa editors have ever' had. A Bicycle and Calf Knee. A young man named Adams started to lead a calf home and ride his bicycle at Webster City. All went well for some distance until they began to go down a hill. ' Having no brake Adams was back peddling when suddenly the calf became startled and ran ahead, nearly pulling Adams from his saddle and causing him to lose the pedals. Cycler and calf raced down the hill at break-neck speed, when quickly the animal swerved across the road directly in front of the wheel. In order to evade the calf by turning out, Adams ran the bicycle into a big rock. He was hurled far away and the wheel was wrecked. The thoroughly frightened calf continued its mad run down the hill dragging Adams over the rough road, Some distance from the scene of the accident the animal, with Adams in tow, was headed into a fence by an approaching farmer. Adams was found to be covered with bruises, The flesh was terribly lacerated in some places. His left arm was broken. The calf seemingly enjoyed the fun. ' Got Enough Doctors. Iowa Falls Sentinel: The Bancroft Register mentions a young medical student up that way who expects to locate in Iowa Falls after completing his course of study at the State University. Gee whiz! Mr. Register, don't send him down here, because, you know, we have thirteen or fourteen doctors here now—all good ones, too, and they have made it so healthy in this vicinity that you would have to try twice in order to catch a cold. Send him to Eldora. Milwaukee Excursion Bates. Excursion tickets are now sold at re* duced rates to Spirit Lake and Okoboji by the Milwauke line. Tickets for the exposition at Nashville, Tenn., May 1 to Oct. 81, are sold at 80 per cent, of full fare. Misery In Italy. Prom a hygienic standpoint, Italy is probably the worst off among all the civilized nations. According to statistics collected aud published by Professor Bodil, who fnrjiishes authentic figures covering the entire Italian monarchy, there are among the 8,254 communities of Italy 1,464 which have water of bod quality or iu iusulficient quantity. More than one-half of all the coinmtjfities, or 4,877, have no drainage, and refuse matter is simply thrown into the street. The conditions of homes arc also very bad in Italy, as in no other country of Europe are there so many people living in cellars or basements. In 87,208 tenements situated below ground more than 100,000 -Italians live, eat and sleep. In 1,700 villages of Italy bread is not uaed as food, a mush of corn called polenta taking its place. Corn being frequently sold in deteriorated condition causes many cases.of pellagra, a sickness peculiar to maize eating people, which annually causes 4,000 deaths in the provinces of Venetia and Lombardy. 'It is estimated that more than 100,000 oases of pellagra occur annually in these provinces. In 4,065 communities of Italy meat is not eaten and can only be obtained from nearby towns, since meat is BO dear that the poor people of Italy cannot, afford it. Three hundred and sixty-six communities havo not oven a cemetery, their dead being buried in the churches, for they are too poor to purchase ground for burying purposes. Fourteen hundred and thirty-seven villages havo no physician, a condition which is simply dreadful, for one-third of the entire area of Italy is subject to malarial fevers during one-half of the year.

A conference of fusionists at Otturo" wa Tuesday practically decided to open the gubernatorial campaign at Fort Podge, with EV speech by Candidate Fred White some time during August. It has not yet been determined wheth' ea to open before the republican state convention or to have the meeting immediately following. The Ocean'a Temperature. The extreme range of temperature in the ocean, according to a Royal institution lecture by Dr. John Murray, never exceeds 53 degrees F., yet temperature has played a more important part in the distribution of marine organisms than in that of the air breathing and •warm blooded animals of the land. The surface waters of the ocean havo five well marked temperature areas—an arctic and antarctic circumpolar belt with a'small range and a low temperature, a oiroumtropical belt with a small range and a high temperature, and two intermediate areas with large annual ranges of temperature. Vertically, the ocean may be divided into the superficial region, extending down to about 100 fathoms and the deep sea. The surface region, especially near the land, has a variety of conditions and an abundant fauna and flora; but plant life is absent in the uniform conditions of the deep sea, although animal life is abundant. The warm surface waters of the tropics have many species, but relatively few individuals, while the reverse is true in colder regions. Dr. Murray accounts for all the various facts in marine life distribution by supposing that in early geological times the whole globe had a uniform climate and an almost universal fauna and. flora. The coral reefs of the arctic circle in the Paleozoic period were probably formed when the water had a temperature of about 70 degrees g. Wind and Sound. The means by which wind may be measured by its sound is a novelty in modern scientific research to which the attention of the National Academy oi Sciences has been drawn by Professor Bams. He asserts that the whistling of the wind as it crosses a wire varies with the velocity, and that this can be com* puted from the pitch of the note observed in case of a given diameter oil wire and for a given air temperature, A special micrometer attachment con be made to convey the sound, isolated from other noises, to the observer at a distance. Thus every gust and variation of the wind can be studied in. this wayi and an idea of the actual direction of the gust can be had by means of the sounds obtained from three wires placed at right angles to one another. $31 PER ACRE And Ten Years' time in which to pay for it. Of course you can't buy improved farms for that, but the Northern Pacific Railway Company has hundreds of thousands of acres of FARMING LANDS in Central Minnesota, which it is selling to actual settlers at from $2.50 to $3.00 per acre, on TEN YEARS' TIME. The prices are Cheap, but The Lands are Good. Fine soil, splendid water, best of markets and near churches, schools and railroad stations. The famous Red River Valley lands at $4.00 to $8.00 per acre. a* Horn© 1 Stop :E3en.t!
