The Wapsie Index has been eek!n? a
sensation among the people of its town
and at last has found it. Here is the
whole business in substance and in detail-
The tender fett of the timpestuous
Bernhardt dii burn hard upon the hot
sands of Rochester's placid beach in the
dajs of her callow youth. Sr proves
to be the missing aunt of Mrs. C H.
Briggs, of this city, who recognizes her
history, and has no doubt, but that the
willful girl, who ran from home so many
years ago, is now the crowned queen of
tragedy, at whose feet so many thousands
on both sides of the ocean bive bowed.
The following dispatch clipped frcm
the Burlioglon Ilawkeye confirms the
story, which has already been told by
Mrs. Briggs to a few of her near friends.
And the great Bernhardt, Hie so much
else that is great, is unquestionably an
"Iowa product." The Mrs. Mary Munn
mentioned is a sister to Mrs. Brigse:
Portland. Ore , July 27 J. H. Enea
bles is a resident of thiscity. Wednesday
last Kneables received a letter from his
mother, and Mrs. L F. Bell, a resident
of White river, Tulare county, California.
This letter contained the ibformation
tht her niece. Miss Mary Mucn, living
in Iowa, had lately received a letter from
Sarah Bornbardt, in which the great
actress disclosed the trtct that she is Mrs.
Bell's youugen sister, who run away
from heme in Rochester, Iowa, 30 years
According to the story told Mr. Knea
bles in the letter from his aunt. Mrs. Belie,

years of age, and was living with a sister

Sara then, as now, was very willful and
had a temper of her own, and one day,
having been angered, she left the house,
and ever since ber fate has been a mystery,
diligent search and inquiries failing to
elicit any information of ber, and the
conviction was finally entertained that
she had made awav with herself.
This story of the origin of the "divine
Sara" differs radically from that civen in
her biographies, but the circumstances
riled by Mrs. Bell in her letter to Mr.
Kneables leaves little doubt that this is
the true storv. and that Sara is American

Dr. Charles A. Crampton, of Washing
ton, D. C , has completed a chemical an
alysis of the water in tbe Wa'ker mineral
spring in East Moline, which is believed
to possess great medicical virtue. Dr.
Crmtoa is a cheinit in government
employ and is therefore a competent man
to do the work. A sample of the water
being sent him by Mr. Walker, be made
a qualitative examination, and gives the
following results: There were large de
posits of iron, but no sulphur; 7.45
grains of chloride of soda (common salt)
and about the same amount of corbonate
of lime . There were also present various
other salts usually found io spring or well
waters, such as carbonate of magnesia,
sulphate of soda, etc., in various propor
tions. The chemist in conclusion says:
"Your sprinc can properly be called a
'chaly beate' spring, no doubt, for there
must be considerable iron in solution in
the water when it issues from the ground.
Iron is good for many things, and I sup
pose this must be tbe explanation of its
remarkable curative properties."

Summer in in. Country.
Such is now the rule of American life.
We long to hear the eong f the birds,
tbe hum of the bees, even the lowing of
tha kine and the click of tbe scythe has
its charm. We long for its "even spun"
life, a rest from the din, the clash, tbe
conflict, and sharper contact and jostling
of city and town life. So we vacate our
cosy and spacious homes, and for a time,
dwell in the sometimes narrow tents of
country life, tor the sake of its broader
skies and wider fields and woods. But
the change is not free from danger.
There are unripe fruits, which tbe child
ren will eat, cold winds from which in
oar summer dress we get chilled, malarial
air full of fever and ague. So we must
be cautious of exposure, eating, drinking
with us Humphreys' Specifics. The No.
1 for fever, chill or exposure; Soa. 4. 5
and 0 for summer complaint, and cholera,
and especially Nos. L0 and 16 for malaria,
fever and ague. With these simple spec
ifics we are armed for emergencies, can
meet the enemy at the very door, and
preserve not only our piece of mind, but
the health and safety of ourselves and
household. Humphreys' Manual (144

Worse than a Urate.
The fiend whose instincts are worre
than a brute's, who recently mutilated a
hsrse in a stable in Davenport so that
the animal cio.e very near dying from its
injuries, and then escaped, has evidently
been practicing bis dtvilish work in Mo
line. The Dispatch of Saturday evening,
Mrs. Joe Stafford is minus a horse.
She found this morning that during the
night some one had thrust a knife into
the aoimai's side, inflicting a fatal
wound. The police were called on to
kill the horse and put it out of suffering.
It seems incredible that we should have in
our minst anyone cruel enough to thus
serve a dumb animal.
