SOUTH 3IOLIXE CHUKCH CASE.
The Trouble la the In fed Brethren:
Church 1'robably 4etlled--A Conrt
Tbe trouble with the United Brethren
and Method ist churches of South Moline
over Ihe possession of some property was
probably settled in the supreme court
Satur lay. The trouble grew out of a
mortgage that the trustees of the United
Brethren church gave to 8. A. SimueK
son, c f Moline. The mortgage was fore
closed by Mr. Samuelson and the prop
erty soil to the Methodist church.
The United Brethren claimed that the
mortgage . was invalid because the
trustees when they executed it had
not conferred with a majority of tbe
members of the Bociety, and they brought
a suit of ejectment against the Methodist
societj. Tbe case was tried in the cir
cuit cou rt, May, 1890, and a decision
rendered in favor of the United Brethren.
A new trial was granted tbe defendants
and the case tried again last fall, when
the Methodist society got a verdict.
Tbe case was takes to the supreme
court, and Saturday the decision of the
lower court was sustained. This sus
tains the claim of the Methodists that the
mortgage was valid and gives them the
possession f the property.
The attorneys for tbe defense were
Messrs. Searle & Searle and William
Jackson, while Guyer & Sweeney and
Judge. Wilkinson appeared for the plaintiff.

Used in Millions of Homes 40 Years the Standard
How Insects Produce Their Sounds.
' While the notes of insects are among the
loudest, and supposed by many to come
from the mouth, they are In reality Instru
mental In other words, produced by
various musical instruments with which
nature has endowed them, yet to some ex
tent they correspond to the voice of other
animals, the sounds and calls being an
swered by others of their kind. When the
grasshopper wishes to hail some compan
ion or talk to his fellow over the hedge it
simply rubs its thighs against the fore
winKS, or plays upon a veritable fiddle. If
the leg of the musician is examined Under
a microscope a ridge of very fine teeth will
be seen the sound producers.
The loudest players are the locust, that
often make the woods sound with their
calls. Sometimes all are playing or chat
tering at once. Again there will be a lull
in the conversation. Then one will begin,
the note will be taken np by another, and
finally a volume of sounds blend and fill
In the former case we had a flddlef.
Here the musician is a drummer, which
we may prove by examining the locust.
The base of the anterior wing is transpar
ent, forming a regular drum, with which
the males utter their calls, and as there
are mary different species, so there are
many different calls, and some, it is said,
have certain calls for the night and others
for the daytime. St. Paul Dispatch.
In 1728 Samuel Higley, of Simsbury, and
Joseph Dewey, of Hebron, in Hartford
county. Conn., represented to the legisla
ture that the said Higley had, "with great
pains and cost found out and obtained a
curious art by which to convert, change or
transmute common iron into good steel
sufficient for any use, and was tbe firt
that ever performed such an operation in
Swank gives on the authority of Mr.
Charles J. Iloadly, librarian of the Con
necticut State library, a certificate, signed
by Timothy Phelps and John Drake, black
smiths, which states that, in June, 1735,
Mr. Higley obtained from the subscribers
several pieces of iron, so shaped that they
could be known again, and that a few
days later "he brought the same pieces
which we let him have, and we proved
them and found them good steel, which
was the first Bteel that ever was made in
this country that we ever saw or heard of."
A" patent was granted Higley and Dewey
for ten years, provided "the petitioners
improve the art to any good and reasona
ble perfection within two years from the
date of this act." They do not appear to
have done this, or to have continued the
business of making steel. W. F. Durfee
