A wild report was in circulation
this morning to the effect that train
No. 14, on the Rock Island, from the
southwest had been held up by
masked men and robbed near Musca
tine. There was no foundation for
the rumor whatever, but it proba
bly had its origin in the announce

by the same number on the L. S. &
M. S. road in Indiana.

William E. Stengel, son of Gustav
Stengel of this city, is doing himself
and his parents pround in Chicago.
At the opening of the World's fair,
Mr. Stengel secured a position in the
department of collections at the
World's fair. So satisfactorily did
he discharge his duties, that he was
twice promoted, finally attaining the
position of chief book-keeper, a place
he resigned lately to accept a simi
lar one in th office of the Conrad Seib
Brewing conpany. In acknowledg
ing his resignation, the head of the
department in which Mr. Stengel was
employed at the fair, compliments
him highly i.nd expresses regret ' at
the fact tha: he is determined to
make the ch inge by the desire to se
cure a permanent position, and cor

We know some very ambitions and
very worthy gentlemen who would like
to be put intc communication with those
capitalists who have the money for a
magazine enterprise. These gentlemen
possess everything necessary to success
except that essential vulgarly called "the
staff. " And it is "the stuff" that is
mighty hard to be "got at just now.
Our opinio l is that the way to the
founding of a great magazine in the west
must be made clear by and with a week
ly publication that shall faithfully rep
resent the we t and honestly reflect west
ern sentiment: that shall wage a merci
less war upor. the intellectual hermaph
rodites and dfiwdhng perverts and petti
coated clay e iters who, on little tinsel
thrones along the eastern coast, presume
to set tbeinse ves up as dictators in the
great realm oi' American literature.
We are not for any skirmish with those
humbugs. V e j;re for a war of exter
mination. Tl at war is bound to come
sooner or later. It must not be begun,
however, on the part of the west until
the west is fully prepared to sail into and

One of the I iggest newspaper "beats"
in 20 years was achieved by La
Nat-ion, a littls newspaper published in
the Argentina Republic This news
paper pnblish d the news of the accident
to the Victor a a day ahead of every
other paper in the world, and the news
of the disaster was known in Buenos
Ayres before it was in London. The
dispatch to the British government an
nouncing the disaster lay 12 hours
unopened in toe admiralty office. Mean
while rlie news had been stolen off the
wires and sent by a friend of the Argen
tine pHjKT to La Nacion, which was
able to publisl it in advance of all its
contemjiorarics. Such at any rate ia
the story of thj beat" as it is related
here in news per row. It is safe to
spy that any cf the leading American
nt .7 papers m nld have given thousands
of dollars to have obtained exclusive
intelligence of the Victoria disaster, en
abling it to leat the world with the
news. La N;icion's beat" seems to
have leen a case not of enterprise, but
of good luck. New York Letter.
The Term Spinster.
Among our industrial and frugal Eng

One of th1 first important lessons to Jearn about Boys' Clothing is that reliable fabrics and good tailoring at fair
reasonable trices, aie by far more satisfying to putchasers than are the many inferior grades at a less price.
Try our Fence Climbers. Novelties for children.
Thoroughly meritorious knee and long pants sui's for boys of all ages, made to order, bearing our label and
sold with our guarantee, cost no more than ordinary ready made, yet, in style and service they are decidedly better.
"Would you prefer superior merchandise sold truthfully or the inferior grades sold by sensational methods.
The former are our chief inducements, the latter abound everywhere.
We ask nothinr better than an honest test of our claims and if the best is good enough, then, come and get it.
