Allowing weeds to grow on the road
side is reprehensible, and every land
owner shoull be required by law to keep
his front fr from weeds by frequent
mowing. This would induce them to
level off and seed down to tbe roadsides

soon covers this ground and chokes out
most weeds in the northwest. On the
prairie the roadside weeds are a danger
ous nuisance, as they scatter the seeds
for long distances, and spoil fields which
might other vise be clean.
The Herald says that tbe mayor of Du

of being barbarously shot. The experi

ably. The machine is set in the vicinity

sed dog in the lot but does not injure a
licensed one. The licensed dog has a

Thtre was. a little neighborhood mis-
utidcrstandirig between EJward Nor

was agitated considerably by both indulg

resulted in ttieirboth being before Magis

the other with assault aud liaKtry, and
the magistrate assessed Willhoase $7

all is now quiet along the line.
A few days ago Miss Anna Rodine, of
Ruta1, swore out a warrant before a jus
tice of the peace in Milan, charging
George MTilnon, son of Frank Wilson,
of tbe same township with bastardy, and
the warrant was put into the hands of
City Marsha: Mosher, of Milan, for serv
ice. He found the younger Wilson at
ho.LC all rig'it, and as he did not object
to going with the officer, the latter
thought he was all right and asked him
to remain there while he would go
and get the irl so that he could have his
bearing at oice. The young man agreed
to this, and tbetffiser went after tbe girl
with whom he soen returned, only to find
that Mr.. Wilson, Jr., had disappeared,
and nothing has since been heard of him.
Pleas of guilty were entered in tbe
coanty oiat this morning as follows:
William Hawkins, the colored ' 'rooster''
who participated in the shooting at the
Diamond Jo landing a few nights ago.
pleaded guilty to carrying concealed
weapons and was fined $25 and costs and
ordered committed until fine was paid.
John Dunn, who was arrested by Officer
Hetter in the C, B. & Q. yards some
days ago, wus also fined 825 on a plea of
guilty of carrying concealed wvapons
and ordered committed until the fine was
paid. John Brennan and James Kelly,
who tried the "smooth guy" act oa
Simon & Mosenfelder. .leaded guilty to
larceny and were each sentenced to pay
a fine of f lit and costs and have 20 days
in tbe count? jiil in which to meditate.

Question or Russian Jewish Immigra
tion. WASHiSGToy, Aug. 3. The committee
on foreign exhibits of the World's Colum
bian exposition have recommended the
erection at Jackson park, in Chicago, of
an exact reproduction of the old convent
of La Rabida at Palos, Spain. This con
vent is more closely associated with the
life of Columbus than any other building
in the world. It was here that he applied
for bread and water for his child, and
here he was furnished shelter for two
years while he was developing his theory
of a western passage to the Indies; and it
was here that he lived while preparing for
the voyage, and in the little chapel at
tached to the convent he attended mass on
the morning he sailed.
W ill Boss the Job for Nothing.
It is proposed to make the reproduction
exact. It will be of the same dimensions,
of similar material, and wherever there is
a blemish or a broken tile in the origimil
they will be reproduced. The work will
be-done under the direction of Mr. Frank
lin V. Smith, a wealthy and enthusiastic
amateur architect, who lives in the Moor
ish villa "Zorayda" at St. Augustine. Fa.,
during the winter aod in the Pompeitaa
villa at Saratoga during the summer.
Mr. Smith has had more experience in the
reproduction of ancient architecture than
any other man, and tenders his services
without cost to the exposition.

thorized to Docfcte Appeals.

ter has issued a circular letter defining the
duties of officials charged with enforcing

Foater on Jewish Immigration.
Washington, Aug. 3. Secretary Foster
has written a letter in answer to one ad
dressed him by prominent Hebrews of
this city. The latter letter asks that
considering that the Jewish residents of
this country will take charge of Russian
Jews who seek a home m the United
States and see that they do not become
public charges, the statutes of this country
be not so interpeted as to class them with
paupers. Secretary Foster, while im
pressing upon his correspondents tbe ne
cessity of averting an irruption of desti
tute aliens, and also of seeing that those
who do come be widely distributed so as
to supply a real want in scattered comma
ties, says he will rely ou his correspond
ents' assurance that they will notify their
brethren in e-urope of t he statutes affecting
them in this country but reminds them
that any attempt to stimulate such immi
gration would be distincMy hostile to the
spirit of their letter.

lar to that c )ntained in the treaty regard

duty reduced on them io per .cent.

Sprisgfield, Mass., Aug. 3. At 9 p. m.
on Thursday some unknown persons
loaded and discharged the cannon which
rested on a pedestal at the base of the
soldiers' monument in Peabody cemetery,
its muzzle pointing toward the Chapin
memorial chapel. The noine of the explo
sion was heard over a wide area, bat its
cause was sot ascertained until Friday

He tVlna 812.000 by Beating Teany In
Mile and a Quarter Race.
Morris Park, X. Aug. a Michael
F. Dwyer's horse longstreet won the
match race Saturd.v and with it (-12,000
for his owner, defeating David T. 1'ulsi
fer's Tenny. The weather was cool and
pleasant and the tiack iu first-class shape
for the race. There were nearly 350,000
persons at the track when the bugle
sounded far the race. Tenny was the
first to appear for his warming-up gallop,
and be pleased the critics immensely. ot
so with Longstreet. He sulked at the up
per turn, and then there was a great rush
into the betting ring to back Tenny.
After one break they were sent away with
Longstreet nearly a length in front.
The Jockey's Use Their Whips.
The pair ran in this order, close togeth
er, to the quarter, both running under a
pull. Lonstreet held his lead to the top of
the bill, when "Fikey" Barnes let Tenny
out, and the great sway back rapidly closed
on the leader. The couple ran head and
head for a few striues, when Hamilton
went to work on Longstreet and opened up
a gap of three lengths, which he held to
the mile post. Then Tenny moved up
again and Hamilton went to the whip.
Lonstreet began to move away under the
lasn, when mrnes drew his whip, and
once more Tenny gained on Longstreet.
But Hamilton kept steadily at work on
Longstreet and at the last furlong post
had Tenny beaten and passed under the
wire a winner by six lengths. Time, 2:07).
TWO QUARRELING WOMEN.
Their Rows Brine; About the Probable
Death of One Husband.
Croton Landing, X. Y., Aug. 3. J.
Xewton Baker, a private secretary of
Kooert Ingersoll, and a resident of this
village, was shot tn the arm, head, and
just over the heart by Orville Anderson iu
front of the town hall Saturday evening.
His condition is critical. Baker and An
derson live in the same houe, and the
shooting was the result of quarreling be
tween their wives. Both men drew pis
tols when tbey met. Baker's wife was
present when the fight took place and her
frantic attempts to shield her husband
probably had not a little to do with his
getting shot. It was while she was strug
gling with him that Anderson closed in,
and a moment later Mrs. Baker fainted.
During the three-handed struggle Baker
dropped his pistol, and immediately
thereafter Acdeason fired the three shots.
He then walked coolly away leaving
Baker and his half-crazed wife on the

threats and intimations of the anti-Par-nellites.
