learned, that the couple had quarreled
considerable of late and that during

in a verdict yesterday morning finding

incensed because Chronkite sold some
hogs to another man instead of to him.

Chronkite that he was going to fire

fense was that Chronkite was about to
assault him with a whisky bottle, but
this was disproved.
HENDERSON IS NO MORE
(Continued From rage One.)
born March 14, 1S40. His old home
stead was located in the corner of the
county, and it is said that as a boy he
took some pleasure in stretching him
self out on the grass in the corner in
a manner that he could be in four
counties at one time. When a young
man he entered Upper Iowa univer
sity, where he was attending school
when the war broke out. He went to
the front at the head of a company of
students and distinguished himself on
the battlefield, receiving promotions un
til he earned the title he bore. He was
at Corinth, Shiloh and Antietam, re
ceiving the wound at Corinth, from
which he suffered the remainder of
his life, and which compelled him to
wear an artificial limb.
(iuen to Dubnquf.
After the war he was admitted to the
bar and practiced law in Dubuque for
a time. He was made revenue col
lector, and early in the SO's was elect
ed to congress, where he was kept by
the people of the Third district until
he voluntarily declined the nomination
that had been tendered him by unani
mous vote in 1902.
Until the burdens of the speakership
came upon him he kept very close to
his constituents. After that he met
little with his people and had post
office troubles that developed into a
storm, two of the republican papers of
the district threatening to bolt the
ticket. It was in the face of this that
he declined the nomination after the
campaign was fairly well started.
Some say It was the dread of a person
al campaign that was the cause of his
sudden action, but others now believe
that he was aware of the mental weak
ness that was overtaking him and
knew he would not be able to stand
the strain. If any of his close friends
know the real cause they kept it to
themselves, and if they did not, the se
cret was carried to eternity with Col.
Henderson. The reason given was
that he could not stand on the Iowa
platform, and later he said in an inter
view, "Let the new lights shine," the
lights referred to being the revision
ists under the leadership ol Gov. Cum
mins. The reason given was never
accepted by his people as the real one,
for never in his long career had he
ever wavered on a republican plat
form, whatever it might have been.

COLD KILLS THE GERM.
Lieut. Perry Says There Are No Bald
Heads in the Arctic Region.
The people who come back from
Klondike testify to the fact that no
native bald heads are there. , The evi
dence is that the cold climate kills the
germs that eat the hair oft at th.s
root. Lieut. Perry, who went to thn
Arctic regions, gives the same evi
dence. Newbro's Herpicide has th
same effect as the cold climate. It
kills the germ that cats the hair off at
the roots, and the hair grows again.
Herpicide Is the first hair remedy built
upon the principle of destroying the
germ that eats the hair off. Its phe
nomenal sale demonstrates the cor
rectness of the scalp germ theory.
