Newspaper Clippings a Vital Point in
Die Evidence in the Casc-
St. Louis. July 29.—The validity of a
newspaper eiippira as evidence was
the pivot upon which a case in the
United States court of appeals has
been decided, closing several years of
itigation, and the Modern Woodmtn
of America is saved over §0,000 in an
opinion handed down this morning.
The court affirmed a verdict in the
United States district court of Iowa
against Mrs. Jessie Kerr, who sutsd for
*3.000 insurance. Jtime* Kerr, former
ly a clerk for the Modern Woodmen of
America, a lumbermau, was arrested
July 27. 1«'7, at Manilla, la., cn a
charge of bigamy, alleged to have been
eommited in Missouri. He blew out
his brains in an upstairs room on the
day of his arrest while the officers
wore waiting for him below. HU
widow sued for the .000 insurance.
A Manilla newspaper in its account of
the tragedy, printed this letter:
Dearest Jessie: They are onto this
for the money there is in it. Th?
others are nothing to me. Collect my
insurance and take ?ood care of Georgie
Good by. Your loving Hu-b.mil.
The Woodmen, whose chatter pro
hibits payment of death policies on
lives of suicides, introduced the clip
ping as evidence, and the defense
fought this, but lost.

Only a week ago he was married to a
Miss Alien Cross, and the bride of one
week is prostrated with grief.
With Panama hat craze at its pros
ent height a little advice on how to
detect an imitation is iu order. The
market is full of imitations worth
about a dollar each, but which are
sold form $4 to $8 To detect them is
easy. If in doubt ask the dealer to
immerse the hat. for three hours in
water, With a Panama he may do it
safely for they are made under water,
but the imitation will turn black under
the same treatment and tear like
paper. There is a peculiar chemical
smell from the imitation Panama by
which it may be known, and there is
a slight nap on the inside which may
be raised prominently by scratchiug
with the finger nail.

An exchange thus bids farewell to
a departed citizen: He was a man of
push. He played marbles for keeps
when a bov and cheated his playmates
out of their allays: he swapped a Mode
less knife, sit ht unseen, for a four
blader, sold that for lifty cents, bougnt
a pound of sugar and made a barrel of
lemonade which he sold one circus day
for eight dollars. He started in busi
ness and sold bad meat for choice cuts
and made a fortune. When he got a
thousand dollars he organized a com
pany with $5,000,000 capital, mostly
water, and sold the stock at par. Wheu
he died he was a millionare and left it
all here. It is warm where he is now.
The Carroll Heraid says: There
neea be no speculation as to the pro
bable action of the board of trustees of
the state college in arranging for Dr.
Beardshear's work as president of the
state college for the coming vear.
The fact is, arrangements were made
at the last meeting of the board, when
l'rof. Stanton was instructed to take
charge. By action of the board already
taken he is the acting presides:!
Frequent mention in the Kegister and
Leader of anv other arrangement is
wholly unwarranted by the facts.

What Rural Free Delivery has Done
for Reform.
James L. Spink, one of the best
known Gravelling men of tbe north
west has just returned from along trip
through the oouutry districts of Minne
sota and reports the success of rural
delivery along a line that can hardly
have been anticipated by those instru
mental in establishing the system.
In one of the towns where Mr. Spink
sold goods he overheard a saloon
keeper discussing rural delivery and
advancing1 arguments why the plan
should be done away with. The main
point he made was that it ruined busi
•'Why," said Mr. Saloonkeeper,
".vhen men came into town every day
for their mail they were sure to drop
into my place while they waited: every
body drank, everybody treated every
body else and it made trade lively.
Now the farmers come into town but
two or thre times a week and more
often but, once, and the worst of it is
they don't happen to come in together,
for they only come in for groceries or
some other supplies and no two men's
supplies are apt to irivc out at exactly
the same time. This, you see. does
away with the matter of treating and
reduces trade tremendously. It's ruin
ing business, I tell you."
Mr. Spink is an observing man. aud
the saloonkeeper's point of view inter
ested him. He took pains to inquire
of the business men he traded with as
to the correctness of the saloon-keep
er's judgment, finding to his surprise
that it was generally conceded that
rural delivery has materially artected
the liquor ttaffic in the small towns
aud gives promise of being a most ef
fective means of increasing temper
ance among the farmers.
"Uncle Sam's method of work and
its effect, although they were not
primarily intended, must make the
temperance workers pause when con
trasted with those of the Carrie Na
tion ilK and th« canteen howlers,'' was
the observation of the leading mer
chant of one of the largest of the town
visited.—Minneapolis Journal.
Women in ihe Harvest Field.
Owing to the unusual condition of
the weather the past three weeks, a
crisis is on iu the harvest tield in many
localities in the state. Farmers are
anxious to save as much grain as pos»
sible and there being a scarcity of
farm hands the women have been
called from the kitchen to the field to
assist in harvesting. A farmer re
marked the other day that it was al
most impossible to get a farm hand.
The cause of this is Lhere is so much,
work and all are busy at good wages,
and a man in the city cannot be in
duced to go ints the country and do
