WRESTLING FOB A GAL.
The peculiar condition upon which
a matrimonial affair was based in
South Arkansas have just come to
light. JJiclc Anderson naa gradu- "1 wants my ten dollars. I flung de

so straight that it would break a

knock-kneed man's lege to walk in
it. This accomplishment was a kind
of frontispiece to further volume of
agricultural success, and more than
one young lady in the neighborhood
had her eye on the young catch.
Dick wasn't bashful, but he didn't
seem to be particularly impressed
with the charms scattered around
him like falling drops of water that
lingers on iealy trees alter a rain.
But he soon met his fate, a young
lady, Winnie Hogrow. Yi innie was
a beautiful girl, and could cover as
much corn with a hoe or 6crape as
much cotton as any man in the neigh
borhood. The couple loved de
votedly, agriculturally. Hogrow had
raised his daughter with great
care, and now that she had at
tained the zenith ef her usefulness, it
grieved him to think of losing her.
One Sunday Dick went over, and,
going out to where the old man wae
shelling corn to the pigs, said :
' Mr. Hogrow, I suppose "
"I don't suppose anything, sir."
"Well, then, you doubtless know
"I don't know anything."
"That's all right, then. I am go
ing to marry your daughter, and by
next corn-planting time you will
know something. Do you weaken,
Mr. Hogrow ?"
,;See here, young feller, I can't
afford to lose my gal. I have had
powerful bad luck this season. The
cut-worms begun on the oorn by the
lime it came up, nnd the bugs pitched
into the eottori ; and to make things
yorse, my best mule and one of my
cows got into a fight and the mule
kicked the cow until both of them
died. So, uuPer the circumstances,
I'd rather you'd marry somebody
accept your misfortunes
I'm going to marry the
"I'll tell you what 1 11 do, Dick.
I'll make this arrangement : We'll
wrestle, and if you throw me the
gal's your'n, If I throw you she's
miue. If you marry her against my
will, I shall pleasantly exterminate
you. li you tnrow me ana marry
her, this farm, together with the gal,
is your'n. I'll give three trials, one
to-day. one three weeks from now,
and the other in six weeks."
Dick iras compelled to agree, al
though the old man was recognized
as the best wrestler in the country.
He had challenged everybody and
had thrown everybody who had ac
cepted. After eating dinner, the old
man announced his willingness to
take the first ballot. Dick was will
ing. The contestants, including the
girl, went into the yard, the girl
took the hats, and the men grappled
each other. The signal was -given,
and Dick w.ent over the old man's
head and plowed a ehoit furrow in
"Give me my hat," he aid to tho
"Don't givo up," she remarked,
handiug over bit tile. "Go avay
Dick left, discouraged, but taking
the girl's advice, wrestled with steam
boatmen and farmers until the time
lor the next trial came. At the ap
pointed time Dick appeared at Hog
"Feel like you can cut your capers
pretty well?1' asked the old man.
"I think so. I feel that my cause
is just, and with the aid of kind
Providence I hopo to pile you."
"Providence comes in putty handy
at times," said the old man, pulling
off his coat, "but it's a bard matter
to buck agin an old stager. Get
outen your jacket. It I tall the gal
and the farm is your'n. Four hun
dred acres, and all Under fence.
Gal weighs one hundred and fifty :
big inducements." The two men
giappled, and again Dick plowed up
"Don't give up," said the girl.
"No," said the old man, "for tho
land ifl tinder fence, and tho gal
weighs one hundred and fifty can
handle a hoe wonderful !"
Dick went away and pondered.
It was evident that the old man
could throw him every time. To
lose the gal tfas to wreck his life.
An idea struck him. He smiled.
He left the neighborhood and re
mained until the time for the third
fall was nearly up. On the appoint
ed day he visited the old man.
"I have agreed to everything," said
Dick, " and now I ask a favor. Let
the final trial take place to-night in
the dark. I will meet you here at
"Any way suits me," replied the
old man. "I'll meet yon anywhere."
At ten o'clock the old man stood
in the yard chuckling. His combat
ant, climbed the fence and ap
word me two men giappiuu. x "e
struggle was short. The old man
went up in the air, came down, and
struck the ground with a force that
almost took his life. He lay for a
moment half unconscious. Dick
raised him tip and assisted him' into
"The gal and the (arm ia your'n,"
Raid the old man, and the young
couple embraced each other. The
next day they wore married. Short
ly after the ceremony was over a
large negro appeared at the door
, and, attracting Dick's attention, said:
. him ten dollars, and turning around,

old man. "I'll explain,'' said the
bridegroom. "Realizing that I
couldn't throw you, and at the same
time realizing that my happiness de
pended upon the marriage, I resort
ed to a bit of treachery." Here he
stopped to bnckle his arms around
his wife. "I found a big negro that
I knew could throw you, and offered
him $10. That's why I wanted the
wrestle to take place in the dark.
After he bad thrown you, I rushed
forward and picked you up."
When Dick had finished, the old
man looked at him for full five min
utes and remarked : "It was a
mighty medn trick, but the farm and
gal are your'n. Four hundred acres
under fence, and the gal weighs one
hundred and fiftv."
THE IOWA METEOR.
In May, 1879, the largest metoric
stone ever beheld in America fell on
a farm in Emmet county. The farm
belonged to Mrs. Col. C. II. Perry,
of Keokuk. The stone lay embeded
15 feet deep in the ground for 10 or
12 days, visited by hundreds of peo
ple, each one carrying off a piece of
it. A friend of Mrs. Perry, residing
in this city, wrote her asking her if
she would not like to have the me
teorite stored in tho Davenport acad
emy of science. She replied that
it would cost 8150 to 160 to get it
out and place it upon the railroad
train for something would have to
be paid the teuant of the farm, who
claimed a sort of partnet ship in the
ownership and if the academy
would raise the amount it might
have the stone and welcome. Alas !
there wasn't a dollar in the academy
treasury, aud the effort to raise the
sum failed. Then a Mr. Berge gave
Mrs. Perry $160 for the stone, she
supposing he intended it for an in
stitution in this state and Mr.
Berge gave tho farm tenant 50 or
60 for the right of wav across the
fields. And so Mr. Beree got pos
session of the stone, and not long
since he sold it to the British mu
seum for 6,500 ; and there it is to be
placed in a glass caso and preserved
as a celestial wonder. Its weight
wheu shipped for London was 431
pounas. W nen Mr. tserge was ex
hibiting the stone iu Keokuk, Mrs.
Perry secured a couple of pieces, and

Do yon know what made the
Emmet county serolite so valuable ?
It was unlike any other well authen
ticated rock from heaven that ever
fell upon parth. It was composed of
earth, triolite, iron nickle, oobalt,
phosphorus, copper, sulphur, lead,
silver, gold, silica, magnesia, alum
ina, soda, lithia and potassium, all
distinct, yet altogether likn the par
ticles of a granite block. The piece
in the academy lies at tho side of a
sampie of an aerolite which fell in
Johnson county in 1875 but the
latter is nothing but stone glazed
black with fire; and stiJl another
piece of aerolite, from California, is
in the case and it is composed of
splints of iron. Daccnport (Iowa)
In a conversation with a friend at

There are two positions, he said,
which the Republican party should
take, and take positively : First, that
its financial record 9ince the war, in
the payment of the public debt, in
the resumption of specie payment,
and in the general prosperity which
has followed these measures, consti
tutes a strong Claim for its continu
ance in power. And this more es
pecially when it is remembered that,
at every point and turn in the road
on its way toward resumption it
was hindered, abused and misrepre
sented by the Democratic party j and
that, after resumption had become a
fact, the Democratic party did all in
its power to repeal the act, and, by
lying, attributed every business fail
ure and crash to the resumption
policy. Secondly, in a doctrinal and
sentimental direction, it is true to
say, aud ought to be said, that the
Republican party, by its administra
tions and achievements, has hold this
country intact as a Nation, so that
to-day the name of America is hon
ored throughout the world, and is a
tower of strength. This, it must be
remembered, the Republican party
has done in the face of the bitter op
position of the Democratic press ahd
ballot. The Democratic party, by
its opposition to the Catliounistic
doctrine of State rights, saved the
, Nation from disintegration and our
flag irom derision.
Little Annette, who has been sick
and is not yet allowed to eat all she
wants, turned from her thin toast
and weak tea the other day, and said
to her brother : -'I'm goiug to take
a nap ; perhaps I shall dream that I
am eating my dinner."
When the Republican came into
control of the government they were
confronted by an armed rebellion; the
authority of the nation wa3 defied
; in nearly one half of the union ; they
! were opposed by a hostile and rebel
'government; the army and navy of
the union were dispersed; the ar
senala were depleted; the treasury
was beggared ; the credit Of the gov
ernment was destroyed, and all this
was the work of the Democratic
party. The Republican party prov

And all this the Republicans have
done in the face of Democratic ob

Why should a party with this re
cord be set aside to give place to a
party, that opposed and resisted
these measures at every step, and
would, if possible, have defeated
every one of these Republican acts
of wisdom', to which the country to
day owes its unity and prosperity ?
A letter has recently been deliv
ered in France after being detained
in the postoffice for half a century.
A singular discovery was made in
the course of operations now going
on in the general postoffice at Paris.
In a panel near one of the boxes was
found a letter, which had been post
ed exactly fifty years ago, and which
by some mischance had got stuck in
thf panel instead of finding its way
into the box. The letter was duly
forwarded to the person to whom it
was addressed, who still more
strangely, was alive aud received it
safely. The writer, however, had
been dead many yearn.
Last summer a tired faetory girl
in Connecticut wrote this on a spool
on which she afterwards wound silk:

The eilk was used by Thomas Pow
ers, shoemaker, of this village, the
other day, who found the writing
and will send the spool back to the
writer. Alegan Journal.

Mr. Palmer made an exceeding
happy effort, and it was receive
with cheers and laughter, It is sel
dom that one ethboins dbwh, ibf
rough edges of defeat any mors
graeefully than did he. It was sub
stantially as follows:
Mr. President and Gentle
MEN: One by one the martyrs pass
before you prolonged applause anil
laughter; but we come not with
spirit of martyrs but rather with tbtf
spirit of apostles apostles of liber
ty and the great Republican party.
Continued applause It is said
that the soldiers of the French army
on its return from Moscow, benumb
ed with the cold and falling by the
wayside, would raise themselves as
Napoleon passed and cry, "long live
the emperor." So do we when hope
and aspirations have this day been
chilled by an untimely frost, we who
have been frozen out by you dele

Republican armv passes by and cry
out, "Long live the Republican pan

us to be the standard bearer we at
least rthall be permitted to form too

What was it that the freezing
French soldier cheered as the em
peror passed by ? Was it tho man
who bad fought under the shadow
of the pyramids ? Was It the man
who pierced the Austrian center at

cheer, not an aggregation of meri
merely, but an army whose history;
as I now look out, unrolls before me
like a scroll, showing a panorama of
human progress since it was organ
