•t i '•.} Female Slurp Practice. fie Tiffin (Ohio) Advertiser, Feb. 11, my: "Some years ago a young gentlematf living in Crawford county, "went west,*' •ettled in a western city, and became rich. He married a lady residing in tho city where he located. After he had been married about six months, he prepared to •isit Crawford county in company with hie bride. But a few days before he was to Start he was accidently killed by a crate of crockery falling on him from the sec ond story of his warehouse. The event was duly communicated to his family in Ohio. That was about eighteen months •go About three months since the father of the deceased was startled to see a carriage driving up to the door. A very interest ing lady, dressed in mourning, stepped out and introduced herself as the widow of the dead son. Great was the joy of the household at the visit of their beloved son and brother's relict. She said she was going to Rhode Island, and could not re sist the opportunity of seeing the parents and relatives of her "beloved Harry."— This was accompanied by a flood of tears, and "furnace sighs." Three weeks passed by and she had worked her way deep into the affections of the family. She was regarded as daughter—as a sister. The hour came for ner departure—they had exchanged miniatures—the farewells vere said—the blubbering was at its height, when she called the old gentleman to one side and, with great embarrassment, told him that ahe had lost her pocketbook on the cars, containing all but a trifle of her funds.— She felt a diffidence in making the request, but if she could not apply to her "belov ed Harry's" father, to whom could she go? The old man's heart melted, and in a moment his wallet was produced, and ten X's of the Seneca County Bank were ten dered and accepted. She departed—alas, that dear friends must part! Time flew, and a month passed, but nothing was bear ed from "beloved Harry's" relict. The old gentleman became alarmed, and ad dressed a letter to the father of his son's wife, detailing the circumstances of her visit. An answer came. It stated that the widow of his late son was at home— had not been away—and that from the description given, the woman who per sonated her was a servant girl who had lived with them, and had gleaned enough of the history of Harry's family in Ohio enable her to play his wife. Divorce Wanted.—In the Indiana House of Representatives, Mr. Larue presented the following petition Dated Petersburgh, Tipton county.— To the Senate and House of Representa tives now in session I pray you to grant me a bill of divorce from my wife, Caro line Bunch, as she wants one, or to be free from me, and I want to be free from her. She has violated all laws of husband and wife. We have separated. The violation is bad. So I pray your honors, as Jyou have all authority, to send us a bill of di vorce, as this is your business. I pray ?'etersburgh, ou grant me this request. Send it to Tipton county, Indiana.— Send it soon, as she wants to go to Ohio toon as it is obtained. WM. S. BUNCH. The petition was referred to the Com Bttte on Benevolent Institutions. /^"Tiffin, a village of five thousand (•habitants, in Ohio, appears to have been given over to the Evil One, as witness the following evidence from a single num ber of an exchange published in that place: A young man named Coffman burnt his father's barn valued at $1,200, and then stole $130 in money from the old man. Another youth of the name of Fnuser, robbed his father of $200. The body of an unknown man was found in the street, on Wednesday morning of last week, who had been murdered the night previously. The cholera is decimating the hogs of Tiffin. A series of riots, fights. fcc, had occured within a week past and the Postmaster at Melnore (near enough to Tiffin to be within the evil in fluence) had recently robbed the mai1 of moneyed letters, hut escaped before the officers of the commonwealth could catch him. $hk Dutchman and the Goat.—t»A good joke occurred in Zauesville, some time ago, when a Mr. Porter was landlord of the "Eagle," and "Dutch Pete" did the honors of the stable. Pete and the horses had a large, as well as a very strong goat, for a companion and a disinfectant. At the time of our fun, the stable was oc cupied by a drove of mules. To the great annoyance of Pete, "Billy" (the goat) was sometimes in the habit of taking up his quarters in the hay-mow, which he reached by a pair of stairs. Mine host of the Eagle, and the usual crowd in the bar -room, were one day startled by Pete rushing in with his "Dutch up" and al most breathless, exclaiming at the top of his voice: "Meestir Borter! Meestir Bor ter! Billy he leaves or I leaves. I go up in de shtable, and dere vas Billy. I say, Billy go down! he say, Bah-bah-wa and shust gits up on his hind feet. I say again, Billy you go down, and strikes at him mit de bitch fork, when de tam stink num-sheep pitches into me and buts me down Btairs among de mule-jacks, who all kicked me more hard dan de goat. So, Mr. Borter, Billy he leaves, or I leaves!" A Brigham Young, the Mormon prophet, thus denounces one Gideon, who had the audacity to question his prophetic character and the purity of the "spiritual wife" system "Who is the Gideon that has come amongst you He used to sell tape in St. Louis, and now he is here to blaspheme the Lord and to destroy the House of Israel. And what should ye, children of the Covenant, do in return for this evil work Out with the bowie knives ye wore like breast pins at Nauvoo, and »the name of God and the Prophet, fgm him hell Good Hrirr.—A western editor hav ing heard that to persons in a drowning nondition all the events of their past life Mddenly rise vividly before them, mod sstly expresses a wish that some of his delinquent subscribers would take to batfe ingin deep water.

The construction of a covenient Gate for Farm use has long been a desideratum among agricul turalists. The Hoosier Gate is undoubtedly the most valuable invention in its liue that has ever been presented to the public. It is so arranged that the touching of a spring by the wheel of a wagon or carnage, will open it, and a similar spring attached to it on the reverse side will close it. Ru riaways and the consequent destruction of property that often occurs will be unknown where this simple and cheap gate comes into use, as there will be no necessity of leaving a team to enable you to open and close it. This Gate is particular ly valuable to those living in the neighborhood of Railroads, and as all Iowa is shortly to be travers ed by the cars, it is presumeable that everybody will want the latest improvement in the way of a self-opening and closing Gate. A model will shortly be exhibited at McGregor, and the under signed invites all to give it an examination.— Tiaders in Patents, and Manufacturers have here a fine opportunity to speculate, as this Gate must come into universal use. County rights will be conveyed on reasonable terms if application be made soon to the undersigned who is the owner of the Territory of Iowa. Applications tor rights may also be made at the Office of the North Iowa Times, M'Grcgor, Iowa. I. D. FINCH §Tew Cvliato, lad, Feb. 97. *T.
