Clarke is one of the now directors of the company.

It is an old-fashioned cow bell that E. Moll used many years up at Moll's grove east of Hurt. Moll was a gunsmith and the bell is inscribed with his name and location in fine large letters.

Dally, a member of Company F, was seriously injured at camp Monday by the premature discharge of a cannon while the governor's salute was being fired. The full particulars are not at hand. It seems, however, that the ramrod struck him and broke his arm and that he was seriously burned with powder. The boys telephoned Mrs. Dally that ho would probably have to remain in Port Dodge several days before ho could be brought home. The following particulars are given in the Sioux City Journal: It was arranged as usual to fire a governor's salute of seventeen guns as ho approached the camp. The signal corps informed a bugler of the guard, the bugle sounded " commence firing," and the firing began. At the third gun there was a premature discharge just as Private James Dally, of Company F, Algona, was about to withdraw the rammer. There was a second of shock and confusion, as the smoko began to clear away, saw Dally lying prostrate on his face about ten feet in front of tho gun. The hospital corps was sent for and Dally was placed on a litter and taken to the hospital. When picked up ho was bleeding profusely and his shirt was on fire. Those nearest to him put out the fire and tied tho lanyard about his loft arm to stop tho flow of blood. His face was blackened with powder, his eyes were closed and both hands appeared so horribly lacerated and torn that it did not seem possible that they could bo saved. When taken to tho hospital, how- over, tho surgeons, after a careful examination, found that Daily's injuries wore not as bad as at first appeared, although they are very severe. He sustained a compound fracture of the loft fore arm, and the loft hand is so badly broken and lacerated that it was necessary to remove a piece of tho bono of tho index finger. It is hoped to save this finger altogether. His right hand, arm and shoulder are seriously, but not dangerously lacerated with powder and splinters; although his face was badly powder burned, his eyes aro not injured. Tho rammer was found about 100 feet away, broken into three pieces and badly splintered. The gun was a ten pounder made for tho confederate service and captured during the war of the rebellion. A few days or weeks ago it was taken from over a grave in a Dos Moines cemetery and placed on an old twelve pounder carriage belonging to the state. Inspector Gen. Lincoln, who made a careful examination _ of the piece and surroundings, gives it as his opinion that it was caused by tho fact that tho old twelve pounder sponge w.as used for a ten pound gun, and that it did not reach tho breach. The Port Dodge Messenger adds this item: The discharge occurred during the loading for tho third salute of tho 17 to bo fired. The first one rang out clear and loud; the second was a partial failure and made only a faint report. The swab was inserted and the cannon was supposed to have boon thoroughly cleaned, but by tho nature of the discharge it is thought that some firo must have been left inside. Dally was doing tho loading. He had swabbed the gun with water and in- sorted the sack of powder; it was while ho was ramming this down that tho gun was discharged. Lieut. Brown was just cautioning, him not to stand so near the muzzle of' tho gun. Ho had not finished the sentence when tho gun was ignited and went off with aloud report. Dally was blown about 12 feet and struck on his face. Lieut. Brown was the first to reach him and at once ordered his men to go for the surgeon. The unfortunate man wore a flannel shirt, the same ono which has done service on many similar occasions and was the property of Lieut. Brown. This caught firo and Mr. Brown extinguished it as soon as ho reached his side. The swab used in the gun was blown a distance of about 100 feet and was broken into several pieces.

The following note was over looked in the crush of five-pointed star correspondence: GREENFIELD, Mo., July SO.—I see by TUB UPPEU DBS MOINES that a question has arisen as to the ability of Betsey Koss to cut five-pointed star with a single clip of the scissors.

Dnfold It and you will find the smaller piece to 'be a perfect five-pointed star. The second one is folded ready to out. Cut on the marked line and you will have the star. So you see there need be no doubt of the truth of the pretty little story of the cutting pf the stars for our flag. Betsey's reputation in the matter must be sustained. TAYM>B TANNEH.
