Count divisionists are wasting a good

organizing for an aggressive campaign
next fall. Two years ago the proposition
was beaten by 500, and last fall, after a

stood 1,000 against it. People less fanat

Rumors of European wars continue to
be unreliable. The Russian troops were
withdrawn from the Bulgarian frontier a
day or two since, and the cable news
from abroad was that the troops were to
be transferred to the German frontier.
Now it appears that the movemt-nt was

going to stay by Bulgaria until a new

upon the throne. In the meantime, due
allowance must be made for the imagina

The women, as in all heathen lands,
have all the heavy work of the family to
do. The men do the sewing for the
family, but the women do all the
farming, bring all the water and wood,
and do the cooking. They do the farm
work with the baby of the family tied on
their back, as a rule. It is wonderful
what cheering straits they develop even
in the face of all this. The husband is
often the husband of many among the
better class. A marVs wealth can easily
be known by the number of his wives.
They all believe in the ability of a "witch"
to take away life. I am told that it is
common to call an uganga (doctor; what
we would call in the south a -'witch doc
tor") for a sick parson to have the spirit
found. This doctor ofteu finds the spirit
in a tree, a piece of wood, or stone, and
sometimes in another person. If th. sick
die, then this person in whom the spirit
dwelt is ndoki (witch). Often a person
dies without an uganga. In this case the
uganga would be sent for to find out who
is ndoki. Congo Missionary in Ghristain

Grantities had a jubilee last Friday
afternoon and evening in honor of the
victory in the county seat fight. Anvils
and guns were fired, bonfires kindled,
citizens serenaded and carried through
the streets on the shoulders of happy
men, and at night a rousing dance was
given at Hull's Hall. Everybody was
supremely and recklessly jolly. The

We don't mean that she would like to

that their trials in life fitted them for a

Tom Potter was business. A few years

heavily-laden passenger trains into terri

Potter soon arrived and found the opera
tor tremblingly trying to tell how it
happened. "Not a word," said Mr.
Potter. "The question is, can you still
send dispatches? If so, sit down at that
instrument." The operator complied,
and for ten hours did not leave his seat.
Another style of man than Mr. Potter,
might have scattered the remains of the
operator, metaphorically speaking, over
all Iowa, but neither so cold-blooded or
short-sighted was Tom Potter. He used
the terror stricken man, who had pre
viously done his best to remedy his
mistake with a special engine, and part of
the operators ten hours work was to send
out a truthful and succient account of the
calamity for- the press, prepared by Mr.
Potter himself. Business was Tom
