A missionary returned from the is
land of Leyson, which is one of the
Hawaiian group, says that the island
is a giga.itic bird's uest. On this
speck of land the birds swarm in
such numbers that when they lly the
sun is darkened as if a cloud had pas
sed over it. The decaying bones of
the dead fowls helps to form the guano
which is shipped to the cosst by hun
dreds of tons every year. The birds
are tame and they snap at the gar
ments of persons crossing the island,
so that one is compelled to carry a
stick for self protection. The doors
and windows of tbe house must be
kept shut, for otherwise the birds will
come tumbling in and take possession
of the place. The eggs are garnered
in wheelbarrows and are shipped to
market by the schooner load. The in
dustry is not very profitable, however,
owing to the quality of the eggs and
the long distance to market.

Good Friday.
Today, the Friday before Easier, is
being celebrated by the Catholic
churches of the country, as a fust in
commemoration of the passion ani
death of the Savior of mankind. It is
the saddest and most solemn day ob
served during Lent. The services at
St Patrick's church in this city today
were most solemn and impressive. The
mala alter almost bure was trimmed
in black. The vestments worn by the
priest being of the same color. The
mass said on this day is that of the
presanctified, there being no consecra
tion in the mass of Good Friday, tbe
host having been consecrated during
the mass of the day before. In the af
ternoon, at about the time the "divine
tragedy" of nearly two thousand years
ago, is supposed to have occured, the
devotion of the way of the pross is
gone through with. In every Catholic
church in the country there are, lined
on the walls on both sides of the
church, pictures, in all, fourteen, each
representing in part, Christ's journey
to Mount Calvary and his death on the
summit thereof. Each of these pict
ures is called a station.
The priest accompanied by two altar
boys, carrying lighted caudles, and an
other carrying t»jS crucifix, makes the
entire circuit of the church, stopping
i)t p§3h station and reading a few
words Of appr«pri$fp Rafure, and re-

A Clever Trick.
It certainly looks like it, but there is
really no trick about it. Anybody can
try it who has Lame Back and Weak
Kidneys, Malaria or nervous troubles.
We mean he can cure himself right
away by taking Electric Bitters. This
medicine tones up the whole system,
acts as a stimulant to Liver aud Kid
neys, is a blood purifier and nerve
tonic. It cures Constipation, Head
ache, Fainting Spells, Sleeplessness and
Melancholy. It is purely vegetable, a
mild laxative, and restores the system
to its natural vigor. Try Electric Bit
ters and be convinced that they are
miracle worker. Every bottle guars
anteed. Only POc a bottle at S S El
liott's djug store.
The Lecture Course.
Dr. Ilillls was due to lecture in Mo.
Valley early in April. Mrs. Hillis,

hospital and there is no possible
chance for him to come. I can get Dr.
Mclntyre to give us another one of
his great lectures on April 14, but will
be obliged to notify him tomorrow. 1
would like to hear personally from as
many ticket holders as possible to
know whether or not they approve of
this change. Wendling will be here
April 29th and DeMott, May 15.

High Water Coming.
At different points along the Mis
souri river the ice is rapidly breaking
up and unless a continued cold snap
comes there is sure to be immense ice
gorges formed, which will cause the
river to overflow its banks with the re
sult that the Missouri valley will be
inundated as in years past. At most
places along the river, where the ice
has not yet broken, the water has over
flowed the crust to a depth of ten or
twelve feet and if this water does not
pass off throgh the natural channel be
fore the ice breaks, farmers in the
vicinity of the river have grave appre
hensious for this season's crop. Yester
day the water commenced covering
the flats a short distance northwest of
the city and within two hours it rose
two feet.

Navy and the Army.
The little table of figures given
out a few days ago showing the
number of deaths and casualties
in the army and navy during the
war with Spain
eloquent in de­
nunciation of Algerism. The
table follows:
The Army—
Killed in action 329.
Died of wounds 126
Died of diseases. 5277
The Navy—
Killed in action... 17
Died of wounds 1
Died of diseases 1
Tbe navy was subjected to just
as great strain, under climatic
conditions much worse than tbe
average endured by the army, but
the figures express the difference
between Algerism and honest and
sensible management of the affairs
of the navy.
We have no doubt that the navy
and the army have been in perfect
accord all the time and are so now,
but these figures show a variance
that qannot be whitewashed by
any commission.—Sioux Falls
That Visit to Onawa.
Last Saturday evening eight
Odd-fellows of this city took

who proceeded in a masterly man
ner to confer the degrees upon 32
candidates. At the proper time
all repaired to the Hotel Monona,
where 250 covers were laid and all
partook of a splendid spread.
What the brethren at Onawa do

worth knowing. Tho^e who failed

New Suite of Lodge Rooms.
When workmen will have finish
ed the changes which are now"be
ingmade at "Kreder's hall," at
the'corner of Second and Erie
streets, the old hall will be trans
formed into one of the neateBt
and most commodious suite pf
lodge rooms in the city. A new
set of iron stairs which will be
built from the sidewalk up the
south side of the building to the
second floor, will make access to
the rooms a great deal easier than
by the entrance which has been
used in years past. The walls
will be papered, the bare floors of
the different rooms carpeted, and
new furniture procured. In all,
about ten of the different lodges
of the city will occupy the new
roomB when they are finished.
Death has again visited our
neighboring oity of Council
Bluffs, and taken one of its dis
tinguished citizens, Hon. William
Cowles James, who was born in
Elmira, Laramie County, Ohio,
Jan. 1,1830, age 60 years, 3 months
and 2 days. He was a leading
politician in the early age of weS'
tern Iowa, coming to Council
Bluffs in 1853, and soon become a
prominent citizen, having held the
office of county judge, alderman,
mayor of the city, was the demo
cratic candidate for state treasure
er in 1877, and once a candidate
for lieutenant governor on the
democratic ticket. He was a
Knight Templer and one of the
former members of the Masonic
fraternity in Council Bluffs.
He was a man of energy, strict in
tegrity, and public spirited, hav
ing ereoted the James block on
the corner of Broadway and
Main streets, where it still stands
as a monument of his 3nterprise.
Judge James was a man highly
respected, a leader of his party in
his county, affable and liberal to
friends and kind to BtrangerB. His
funeral will take plaoe Wednes
day from St Paul's Episcopal
church, and interment will be in
Fairview cemetery.
The commanding person of
Judge W James, long a citizen
of Council Bluffs, has passed
away, and his ashes will
the beautiful burying grounds of
that city, there to remain until
that day when all must come
forth to be judged and receive a
just reward for the deeds done in
the body.
Strange Coincident
The Filipinos comm
enceda war
with Spain, their mother country,
to secure for themselves thejright
of self government, believing thai
just governments derived their
power by and from tbe content of
the governed. ./
Uncle Sam, by one of the inci
dents of the war with Spain,
the bravery of the American army
and navy, captured from Spain,
not the Filipinos, the oity of
nila—Spain surrendered, and
cepted $20,000,000 in cash as fall
payment for the evacuation of the
country, thus wiping out at one
fell swoop all Spanish authority in
the islands but now, with the idea
of establishing a staple govern
ment for the Filipinos, we are
making war upon them! If .the
consent of the governed is essen
tial to free government why ire we
making war on the Filipinos? Are
they not doing just what onr fath
ers did in 1776? If we are to force
free government upon all p*ople^
at the point of the bayonet bare
not we assumed a big job?
