Missouri Valley Schools
As showing the popularity of the

necessary to state that there has al

of this city ilfty-one applications for
the position of teacher for the coming
year. Among the number is sixteen
applications for the position of super

believe Missouri Valley is a good place

Found Indian Skeletons
Workmen at the McCuilough brick
yard this morning found the remains
of three Indians about eight feet be
low the surface while digging down a
bank. A tree overhung the bank
where the men were at work and Har
ry Brown, Manager of the yard,
thought it was dangerous, so he order
ed the men to dig it out. When the
tree fell it uncovered the three skele
tons. The Indians had been buried
there a long time, for the tree, about
two feet in diameter, had grown over
the grave since they were "planted"
there. The skulls are in a perfect stale
of preservation, most of the teeth
still being intact.

When lie v. and Mrs. W. L.
Douglas left home yesterday even
ing, each going on a different mis
sion, and leaving the children of
the household iu charge of their
13-year-old daughter, Lolo May,
little did they suspect that they
were soon to be summoned home
by the terrible mishap that has
ciused such great eorrow in every
home in Missouri Nalley today.
Before leaving the house Mrs.
the children upstairs
to bed, placing a lamp on the sew
ing machine in the corner of one
of the rooms. Soon after the de
parture of their parents the chil
dren commenced to play as chil
dren will, pillow fights, etc., being
indulged in for some time, but
about 8:30 the children heard
some one walking on the sidewalk
outside and thinking their parents
were returning two of the children
crawled in behind the sewing ma
chine, the motive prompting the
act being unknown, unless it was
with the intention of jumping out
and frightening their parents
when the latter entered the room.
Just exactly what happened aft
er the children had succeeded in
gaining their point of concealment
behind the machine is rather hard
to ascertain just at present, owing
to the severe fright all concerned
received, but from the knowledge
obtainable regarding the unfortu
nate affair it appears one of the
children struck the machine in
such a manner and with sufficient
force to topple it over, throwing
the lighted lamp to the floor. The
instant the lamp struck the hard
floor it broke, scattering the oil
broadcast, and the next instant the
inflamible fluid was afire. Seeing
the terrible consequences that
would result from the fire, Miss
Lola attempted to extinguish the
flames, but in less than thirty sec
onds the blazing oil had ignited
her dreBB and in an
was enveloped in flames. For one
of her age she exhibited a remark
able presence of mind. First she
envoloped herself in a heavy rug,
but this method proving ineffectu
al she rushed down stairs and out
the front door to guard against
the starting of another fire in the
house, in which her charges yet
remained, some of them asleep.
Noticing W. O. Reed directly
across the street as she left the
house, she rushed towards him
Mr. Reed grasped the terrible sit
uation in an instant and realized
his inability to combat the flames
in an effectual manner. He
reached the little girl just as she
was crossing the street and throw
ing her into the dust of the road
he attempted to smother the fire
by the application of several large
handsful of dirt. This to a cer
tain extent retarded the progress
of the flames and in less than a
minute other neighbors who were
witnesses to the terrible scene
procured blanketa and water and
wrapping the little girl from head
to foot extinguished the flames
but not before they had accom
plished their terrible work, inflict
ing injuries from which it iB high
ly probable the young heroine
will never recover.
While Mr. Heed and
were caring for the little girl, oth
er neighbors entered the house,
some carrying the chiloren to
places of safety, while others put
out the fire which had then gained
considerable headway. 1
Drs. Coit and GasBon were called
to render all assistance possible
and after a hurried examination
to ascertain the nature and seri
ousness of the injuries of the little
victim, stated she was in an ex
ceedly critical condition, the ulti
mate outcome of her injuries not
being known.

Fort Dodge, La., April25.—President
A. B. Stickney of the Chicago Great
Western arrived in this city this morn
ing with General Manager Stickney
and J. W. Colt, president of the tfofon
City «& Fort Dodge railway.
President Stickney announced in an
interview that the Great Western
would build a line from Fort Dodge to
Council JiluH'a. Work will begin at
once and a branch road to Sioux Citj
will be built, leaving this line at some
intervening point, which has not yet
been positively located.
J. W. Colt of the Mason City & Fort
Dodge road will have charge of the
construction of the new line. He has
rented ollices in this city and is pre
paring to begin work at once.
The road will cost an immense
amount of money, as it traverses
country that will necessitate a large
number of deep cuts, heavy grades
and the building of some uncommonly
large bridges. One bridge across the
Des Moines river will be 3,000 feet in
length and 150 feet high and will co3l
in the neighborhood of $11,000,000.
The Eminent Kidney
and Bladder Specialist*

Els Laboratory.
There Is a disease prevailing in this
country most dangerous because so decep
tive. Many sudden deaths are caused by
it—heart disease, pneumonia, heart failure
or apoplexy are often the result of kidney
disease. If kidney trouble is allowed to ad
vance the kidney-poisoned blood will attack
the vital organs, or the kidneys themselves
break down and waste away cell by cell.
Then the richness of the blood—the albumen
—leaks out and the sufferer has Bright's
Disease, the worst form of kidney trouble.
Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root the new dis
covery is the true specific for kidney, bladder
and urinary troubles. It has cured thousands
of apparently hopeless cases, after all other
efforts have failed. At druggists in fifty-cent

Odd-Fellows Anniversary at
On Friday morning last about 35
Odd-Fellows and liebeckah's of this
city boarded the morning train for Mo
dale, to participate in the ceremonies
of celebrating the 82nd anniversary of
Odd-Fellewship in the United States.
Modale Lodge No. 573, and Rebekah
Lodge No. 208, having made arrange
ments to celebrate, invited the neigh
boring lodges to joiu them in the cele
On reaching Modale, a committee,
consisting of Mrs. F. McQueen and-.,
C. J. Cutler met our delegation at the
train and conducted them to the hall.
The hall is a large two story building,
the upper story being used for lodge
purposes, some four or live different
lodges using the same the lower room
being used as a public hall. The buil
ding is the property of the lodge, and
was built by them at a cost of about
84,000, this amount includes the furn
ishings, and the beauty of it is that it
is all paid for and the lodge out of
debt and in a prosperous condition.
For a young lodge of only obout 100 in
membership speaks well for the finan
cial management of the Order in Mo
At the hall, the morning hour was
spent in visiting, forming acquain
tances, aud resting preparatory for the
work in the afternoon. During this
this time we took a stroll around town
calling on C. J. Cutler & Son, grocers,
Jasper McCrillis, hardware from there
we wended our way to theJBank where
we met our old friend W. II. McQeen,
whom we are sorry to say is not enjoy
ing very robust health. While Bro. Mc.
and I were there A. E. Ockerson, of
the Bank, kept outside the door, think
ing, no doubt, that it was safest to be
on hand if any demonstration should
be made against the vaults of his bank
but we had no wicked designs. From
there we went to Dr. Roden's drug store
where the doctor was busy waiting on
his customers he is erec:ing a new
business house to the belter conven
ience of his business.
At about 12 o'clock m., a procession
was formed and marched around the
streets, halting in front of the hall,
and then returning to lodge room.
At 12:30 dinner was announced and
the invited guests were invited to form
procession first, then all the Rebekah's
then the general crowd and in this or
der all proceeded to the banquet hall,
and there we found a long table well
filled with all the delicacies of the sea
son coil'ee of most delicious flavor, and
pure and sparkling water, inf act every
thing to tempt the appetite or please
the taste of man. So far as dinner is
concerned it was both elobarate and
magnificent, just such as the Daugh
ters of Rebekah's know so well how
to prepare.
After dinner came an hour of rest
and social pleasure, then all were con
ducted to the church where the final
exercises were coiiHucted, as follows:
C. J. Cutler called the meeting to order.
