great meeting of English librarians
recently set forth some general prin
ciples which should help determine
the desirability of books, says the
Youth's Companion. First, they de
clared the notion exploded that a
taste fcr good reading develops from
reading poor books. The very con
trary is true. The habit of reveling
In, cheap fiction is destructive of a
wholesome pleasure In sound read
ing. The love of books, like the love
of virtue, feeds in high, clean, sweet
pastures, not in refuse, and not even
on husks. Again, the demand for cer
tain books does not require the public
library to supply them. It is a specious
argument that the taxpayers' money
should answer the taxpayers' desire,
llore than 60 per cent of the books
drawn from public libraries are works
of'fiction. The thin, tasteless stream
of'modern fiction is too often the li
brary's chief offering to the communi
ty. Certain libraries adopt the rigorous
measure of buying no fiction until it is
year old. The librarians agreed that
the rule is an excellent one, If it is

It seems Incredible that In so civil
ized a country as Italy a man can have
remained In prison untried for 38
fears. Yet the government is about
to dispose of a case which has been
pending since 1870. On September 18
of that year two boys, aged 11 and
eight years, started for a gunsmith's
with their father's pistol to be re
paired. On the way they quarreled,
and the elder shot the younger, proba
bly by accident. The elder was ar
rested by the papal authorities, then
the rulers of Rome but before he
could be brought to trial the temporal
power of the pope was taken away.
By 1882 the new power in Rome had
reached the case and was ready to try
It but the death penalty was abol
ished about this time, and this-caused
fresh delay. Now, If he Is so fortu
nate, the boy, now a middle-aged man,
will either be discharged from cus
today or be formally punished.
At the present rate of progress in

mada lives In history as one of the
great naval forces. Yet the entire ton

siderably less than that of one of the

been as good as In former years but

other towns in the county, so that
the total number of carlceds will not
fall far short of 700. This, with an
average of 500 bushels to the car,
will make about 350,000 bushels ship

Led up to Murder.
Rockwell City.—Mrs. James M.
Brown, wife of the defendant, James
M. Brown, on trial for the murder of
his daughter-in-law, was on the stand
Nov. 19. and told how Mrs. Emma
Johnson Brown came to her room and
assaulted her and how her husband
beat out her brains with an Indian
club in his wife's defense. It was a
tragic recital, for the aged witness is
a cripple and very weak. She nearly
fainted while giving her testimony in
her husband's defense and her cross
examination by Attorney James Par
son of Des Moines was severe. Be
fore Mrs. Brown was put on the
stand many witnesses were examined
to show the honorable reputation
borne by Brown previous to the mur
der. Many of his neighbors swore
that he was an estimable citizen in
Matter to Court.
Oskaloosa.—The Oskaloosa school

moral purposes, was found guilty by
a jury in less than five mlnuteB, and

Anamosa for an assault with intent
to commit man-slaughter, committed
Aug. 1 upon the person of Night
Policeman Young. ThlB is Judge Al
brook's first criminal case, and the
fact that he imposed the maximum
sentence is taken to indicate that con
victed criminals need expect, little
clemency at his hands.
High Price for Corn.
Knoxville.—At the Marion county
Farmers' institute which closed its
annual session Nov. 14, the bushel of
corn that drew first premium of $20

The Epidemic Is Abated.
Iowa City.—The epidemic of dysent

through the purification of the city

Waterloo.—In anawer to hlc own
question, "What's the Matter with
Iowa?" E. R. Shoemaker, editor of
the Creamery Journal, and Kimball's
Dairy Farmer, said in an address be
fore the Iowa State Dairy association
that Iowa needs a Prof. F. D. Coburn
to propery advertise Its natural re
sources In such a way as to attract
homeseekers and investors and keep
at heme the folks who should stay
here. He also advocated more Inten
sive farming on smaller farms. In
this way he claims that the steady de
creases in the farm population of
Iowa, which has been going on for
ten years, will be checked, and Iowa's
fertile prairies will flow with milk and
mcney. "Iowa will aflv/ays be known
as a great corn state, and live stock
state, and dairy state, but she is to
become better known as a dairy state
fcr the simple reason that therein lies
her own salvation. Iowa must econo
mize. She must turn from extensive
to intensive farming. She must grow
crops in fence corners and vacant
fields, where now she IB growing

could afford to wa§te, absolutely

year. And Iowa cannot afford it any

Des Moines.—A Jury in Judge Mil
ler's court found the Standard Oil
company guilty of unfair methods in
putting the Crystal Cy company out
of business in Des Moines, by re
turning a verdict for the Crystal Oil
company for $6,120.
The jury was out only a little over
two hours, and there was never a
question with the jurors at any time

only difference, it is said, was in
what sum the Crystal Oil company
had been damaged.
The Standard Oil company of
Indiana, Milton L. Storer, J. D.
Stewart and Lee Edgington were the
defendants in the suit but the jury in
its verdict, decreed that Edgington
should not be held liable for any part
of the damage. Edgington was man

"It seemed very large to us, who be
