WONT 5 TAIN THE HAND 5 lOctt. a pacKfetire—- County Chairman George K. Esta brook, of the republican committee, has received word from State Chairnfan H. O. Weaver that Governor Shaw will bt here at that time, and Mr. Estabrook has already set about to arrange for a rousing gathering. The Odeon theater has been engaged, one of the bands will be procured and the people will be treated to one of the governor's sound and sensible addresses. The governor's services are in great demand during the campaign, and Marshall county can consider herself favored in securing his assignment here. During his brief pub lic career Governor Shaw has attracted favorable -comment in all sections of the country, and his reputation in other states is almost as great it is in Iowa. He has the happy faculty of saying original things in an original way, and has thus won the hearts of the people. Therefore Marshall county will gfve him a royaj reception when ht comes here next week. Chairman Estabronk is arranging for other meetings to follow. Either Con gressman Cousins or Mr. liankin, tin iron moulder, will speak in this city during the campaign, and Hon. John N. Baldwin, of Council Bluffs, who is on of the best campaigners in the state, will a-'dress a meeting at State Center at a date yet to be determined upon. Other meetings will be arranged for Oilman. Liscomb and other places, and country districts will not be overlooked. THE DBMOCltATS. The democratic central committee has not yet arranged definitely for th* opening meeting of their campaign in the county. Chairman Henry is in cor respondence with the state committee at present and is making an effort to secure Carter Harrison for an address. The last few weeks of the campaign promise to be nuite lively as far as goo 1 meetings are concerned. VISIT OF 0SKAL00SA COUNCIL. Mayor Wray and six or OsUuloosn's Aldermen Invewll^atj Mat-ahull town's Water lMnnt. Mayor W. H.'Wray and Dr. L. D. Cole. Frank Davis, John V. Miller, L. K. Geneva, Mace Hasan and W. H. Cunningham, members of the city council of Oskaloosa, also Mr. Hoy R. Robinson, ciiy editor of the Oskaloosa Herald, spent the day in the city for the purpose, principally, of looking over the city's water plant and electric lighting system. Oskaloosa is at present considering the advisability of municipal owner ship of water works, the franchise of the water company expiring on the 10th of next month. The city is considering whether it will be best to buy the plant or extend to the company another franchise, providing it makes additions and improvement to the service. The proposition of the water company is that it will dispose of its plant to the city for $-18,0011. which includes $::f,000 1 Why? Because we are ex clusive agents for BaKev's Monaca 0offe or Celebrated The finest coffee-berries grown. FOR SALE BY yet to be expended on the plant for im provements. The situation now is that the company runs a ten-inch main to raise the water 120 feet from the Skunk river, four miles north of Oskaloosa. One hundred and sixty pounds pressure at the river means only forty pounds in the city, which is not anequate for the desired purposes. The contemplat ed improvements are the building of a new pumping station at the edge of the jetty and putting in a double main from the works to the river. To a Times- Republican reporter Mr. Robinson, of the Herald, says there is quite a diver sity of opinion in Oskaloosa as to the advisability of buying the plant, as many of the citizens consider the price asked exorbitant. He said also that it would not be at all surprising if the proposition would be defeated when it was put to a vote. The visit of the Oskaloosa gentlemen to the city has been, it is thought, a very pleasant one as well as profitable. Mayor Pierce and some of the members of the city council met them at the de pot this morning with a carriage and drove them to the city building, where the books of City Clerk Trotter were inspected. Mr. Trotter's system of bookkeeping was highly commended by the visitors, and from one of the coun ellmen It is understood that the same system will be adopted in Oskaloosa, at a motion to be made at the next ses sion of the council. Prom the city building the gentlemen were driven to the water works, where a careful In spection of the machinery of that de partment, as well as the electric light ing plant, was made. From there a trip was made to the new pumping sta tion, followed by a drive about the city. The principal features to be learned by the visit, In regards to the water works system, are the cost of running the plant and the amount of revenue de rived from It. After dinner at the Pilgrim the visit ing councllmen, Mayor AVray and Mr. Robinson were driven to the Immense factory of the Glucose Sugar Relining Company, where they were shown through a part of the buildings. From there the Soldiers' Home was visited, after which the gentlemen called at the Tlmes-ltepubllcan office to see how a real live newspaper is printed. At 5:30 this evening the visitors will leave for their homes. MJBB Uucan Entertains. There is no greater accomplishment than to be a gracious hostess. This ad mirable quality many Marshalltown la dles possess and among them may be mentioned' Miss Ida Dugan, whose par ty given Wednesday evening for Miss Blanche Denmead and Miss Anna Llp plncott, of Chicago, was one of the most enjoyable the young people have had for some time. About forty guests were present and It tvas 'evident that the mystic letter* on the invitations had been deciphered, tor each one wore bit best clothes and each gentleman brought a lady. The assurance that no egrets were wanted had also been heeded. The decorations of the parlors were all of red, roses being the flow'ers "used. Red roses on the'lamps cast a cheery glow over the room. The first hour was spent at the card tables and the guests tried their luck with the new game of "Mary." Miss Mary Welles and Miss Minnie Thayer, of Grlnnell, tied for the first honor for the ladies and the prize, a cluster of American beau ties, was given to Miss Welles. There were three contestants for the gentle man's prize, which was a handsome copy of Kipling's "Plain Tales from the Hills." The drawing of cuts awarded It to Mr. Worley Getz, the unlucky men being Mr. Fred Williams and Mr. Charles Whitehead. Cherry frappe was rc-rved during the playiner and at the conclusion a two-course collation was served by the hostess with the assist ance of Mesdnmes 13. A. Morgan. C. A: Seely and t. T. Denmead and Master Dwlght Denmead, who had welcomed the guests at the door. Then came a clever little game called "bicycle que ries." made up of nineteen questions, which it was expected wheelmen and women should answer. The cards were printed in red and on the reverse side were the Initials of the honored guests. Again two ladles tied for the prize, which was a prettily-inounted picture. It was given to Miss Blanchc Denmead in preference to Miss Lulu Huffaker. and Mr. Charles Speers received the gentleman's first prize, a copy of the rough riders' militury girl. Besides the guest*'-' honored, those in attendance from nut of town were Mrs. F. W. Howe, of Brooklyn. N. Y.: Miss Minnie Thayer, or Grinm-li: and Miss Bertha Wliituker. of Clear Lake. CHAPMAN GOES UP. Could Nrnt i-'ecure a Good Bond and is Sentenced to One Year in Prison. Miss Wilkinson Loses Her Insurance Case—Court Term Nearing a Close.

He thereupon sen tenced him to one year in the Fort Madison prison. Chapman's friends seined to have little faith in him and would do nothing in his behalf. Sheriff Mcl'herson went to Fort Madison with Chapman, Curtis and Howard Wednes day night. He was accompanied by Mr. J. W. Carney, of State Center. Judge Caswell ruled on the insurance case of Miss Klva Wilkinson vs. the New York Life immediately after the conclusion of the evidence, and decided in favor of the defendant Insurance company, holrlinir that the policy on the life of (tie Lunstrum was not in force while he was on military duty in Cuba Court adjourned Wednesday eveninr, until Friday, when some matters that were not ready for presentation will be taken up.

Road Has Planned tbe Most Exten sive Improvements Ever In Its History. Des Moines River Bridge at Eddy ville One of the Greatest—New Steel, Grading, I tc George S, Batty, New General Pas senger Agent, Takes Charge of His Duties His Career. Ther# never was a time in the his tory of the Iowa Central when such a vast amount of valuable Improvement was either in the course of construction or being planned for the immediate fu ture. Some of the state papers hav« made the claim at different times that the Central's property would be allowed to depreciate and that re pairs would not be kept up, all on ac count of the New York officials, who, they claimed, were against any great expenditure. Suchsis evidently not the case, how ever, and plans have been made to do a great deal of work in the way of im provement, even at this late time of the year. Mr. Ira G. Hedrick. of the firm ot Waddell & Hedrick, consulting engi neers of Kansas 'City, recently went over the road Inspecting the bridges, giving particular attention to the Des Monies river bridge at Eddyville, whet the Central is considering the questior. of rebuilding. The masonry work will be put in this fall, ready for the super structure next spring. This will in volve an expenditure of $100,000. From one who has recently been ovei the road it is ascertained that the com pany is renewing all of its water tanks, many of which were in bad repair ani had to be replaced with new ones. The new tanks are being built more sub stantially than the old ones, and are considerably larger. Besides this work the company is putting in a concrete arch and makin, a heavy fill at the Honey Creek bridge near Morning Sun reducing the gradi at Pickering, in order to get in readi ness for the new bridge at that point, and is about to begin extensive im provements in the lowu Junction yardf near Peoria. The steel laying, which has been in progress during the greater part of the summer, is practically completed, the finishing touches now being in progres between this city and Dillon. This give: the company 70-pound steel practically from Oskaloosa to Marshalltown. Tin old iron rail on the Belmond branch ha* all been taken up and 00-pound steei from the main track has been laid in its place. The track is also being ballast ed with gravel, making the Belmont branch and its Algona extension t'n best and most substantial of any of the company's branch property. Mil. BATTY IN MIAIU5K. Now General Pa*senuer Ay:ciit of the Contra! Takes Cliiirso of tie". Mr. George S. Batty, lu- 'i'.of Portland, Ore., the new general ""'passenger and ticket agent of the Iowa Central, whose appointment was mentioned in these columns a few days ago, took charge of his new work Wednesday. Mr. Baltv. although only 43 years of age. is old in the railroad business, having started ir 1S72 on the old Great. Western railway, at Hamilton, Ont.. now the Crand Trunk line. Mr. Hatty's railroad ca reer began as a junior clerk In the of fice of the secretary and treasurer. From there he went to the Chicago & Grand Trunk in the accounting depart ment. having in charge for several years the ticket accounts of the road. From there Mr. Battv went to the Min neapolis & St. Louis road at Minneap olis, where he remained seven years, or until he accepted a position as general freight and passenger agent of the Ma son City & Fort Dodge road, with headquarters at Mason city. He did not remain here long, however—only until the first of September of that year, when he took charge of the traffic of the Wisconsin Central on the Pacific coast, as general agent, with head quarters at Portland. He remained there until the Northern Pacific leased the Central in the fall of 1SS9. when, in preference to going to I'uget Sound, or taking charge of eastern territory, he decided to go into business for himself, entering Into the real estate and gen eral brokerage business, at Portland., in which he continued until March. lS»e, when he was reappointed general agent of the Wisconsin Central. He resigned his position a little later, however, ow ing to the fact that outside business interests demanded more of his atten tion. Mr. Batty Is well acquainted with the western country, where he has resided so long, and has quite extensive inter ests in the way of fruit farms and mining industries. Mr. Hatty's family consists of a wife and five sons, whom he will leave on the coast until next spring, when he expects to remove them to this city. To a Times-Republican reporter Mr. Batty said there would be no changes made in his department, that Mr. II. X,. Laird would be retained as chief clerk and Messrs. C. S. Walters and J. 1?. Seessengutt as traveling passenger agents. •Mr. Batty is a very pleasant gentle man to meet, courteous and affable, and he Is considered by Acting General Manager Tittemore as an excellent man for the place. The position came to Mr. Barty unsolicited, and further than that was not gained through a personal aquaintance with any of the officials. His past work in railroad cir- eles seem to have been his one recom- mendation, as his appointment was recommended very highly by some of the leading railroad men of the coun try. mAH/intjAn hiu nnnmntmftnt \i*nc SIX NEW ENGINES Central to Have a Half Dozen Com pound Consolidated Baldwins. The fact that the Central is short on motive power, owing to the wonderful increase In business, led 'to an inquiry on the part of a reporter for the T.-R. this morning, when Acting General Manager Tittemore was asked if the company was not soon to have some new engines. Mr. Tittemore replied that he was in receipt of a confirmation from the east that an order had been given the Baldwin people (or six of their mammoth compound, consolidated locomotives, which are to be delivered to the company just as soon as pos sible. They can not get here any too soon, for the company's engines are now be ing worked to their utmost capacity, too much so, in fact, for their own good. Many of them have to make the entire trip from Peoria to Mason City, without a lay-over, when ordinarily they are given a rest .at this point. The, new engines are for the freight service and are to be monsters, weighing 149,600 pounds each. Their tank ca pacity is 3,800 gallons, and their driv ers sixty-two inches in diameter. The new engines will cost between $12,500 and $13,000 each. LARGEST BY $10,000. September Karnlngs of Central Larger Than Ally Month In History of Property. The approximate report of the earn ings of the Iowa Central for the last week of September, and for the entire month, was issued Wednesday from the office of General Auditor T. I. Wasson, and is a magnificent showing. For the month the figures show the earnings to have been larger by S10.000 than any previous month in the history of the property. The ratio of earnings is also the largest of any previous period, and is at the rate of $2,588,000 per year. For the week the road's earnings were $75,f57.92, against $64,159.69, an in crease of $11,498.23. For the month they were $233,558.25. agnlnst $209,937.11, an increase of $23,631.14.

Contemplating a Sli or Absence to Visit Maralialltown. UtTU VI* Mrs. H. H. Gregg is in receipt of an other letter from her son, Harry Gregg, of the U. S. S. New Orleans, written at San Domingo, Sept. 21. The most im portant feature of the letter, and espe cially to the Greggs, is the fact that Harry expects to be granted a few days' leave of absence as soon as his vessel reaches New York, and those few days will be spent with his mother and sister in this city. It has been over a year now since Mr. Gregg left his home to enlist in the na val service of 1'ncle Sam. ft has been a longer time than that to the folks at! home, ami no doubt has seemed longer *[_ to Harry himself. Just how soon the New Orleans will b" allowed to leave foreign waters is not known, but at the time the letter was written Mr. Gregg says there was a rumor afloat that the ship would be ordered north as soon as Hie Dewey celebration was over. The New York Sun, however, is authority for the statement that she will remain in the West Indian waters until spring. In Mi. Gregg's letter he states that since last writing he had been given an opportunity to visit the city of San Juan, that he had embraced the oppor tunity to Its fullest extent, and had seen all the great sights, even down to the famous bull ring. He was surprised, he said, in regard to the cleanliness of the city, and states that San Juan's street^ are cleaner today than those o! either New York or Chicago. The city authorities have a novel way of keeping their streets clean, however, laborers are placi to work, with brooms, and are It. 4* guard -f the native soldiers, who stand over the men, armed with their rifles, with bayonets fixed. 1L" a laborer lags he is met with a rear prod that quickly stimulates him to action. In that manner a great deal more work is accomplished in a day than other wise. Harry has evidently had his optics east for pretty Kills, and writes1 thai some of the women are very pretty, even beautiful, yet he would not ex change an American girl he knows for a do:-.en of them. "They look as old at he says, "as our women do at 50,'' There is no chance for a flirtation at San Juan, however, as the young ladies do not appear on the street unless ac companied either by their father or mother, not even on band concert nights. Mr. Gregg also writes that the San Domingo navy yards are being en larged and improved anil bid well to be come an important point, having been designated as headquarters for the West Indian fleet. A COFFEE EXPERIMENT. Not l.ikcly to l!e Kcpcatctl. "The work of a, newspaper corre spondent involves constant thought and study, with consequent brain and nerve weariness. It may interest you to know of my experience with coffee. "Some years ago I was compelled to give it up. and after a few years' absti nence started its use again, at break fast only. Within a few weeks I was compelled to abandon it, as 1 became nearly paralyzed. "During the forenoon of each day my arms and wrists were so benumbed that 1 could use them wii.ii difficulty. Alarm ing symptoms began to develop which my physician informed me were the forerunners of apoplexy. Coffee was therefore foresworn. Milk, of which I was very fond, made nie intolerably drowsy and stupid. "About two years ago my attention was called to Postum Cereal Food Cof fee, and a trial was made, believing that if it proved half as valuable as claimed it would be of great advantage l§ to me. "n the first trial it tasted rather insipid to our strong-loving-coffee fam- jig ly, but a little freer use of Postum IS and longer boiling produced a delicious A drink, and within a short time thej$ members of the family, one and all. had become ardent advocates of Postum Food Coffee. In my own case it has worked won ders. I work more constantly' than ever, but niy g.en(?1.a| health is better than at any time in my lif£, and tnt» symptoms of nervous trouble have wholly disap peared. About eight months ago I made iS one more trial of coffee, reducing it with nearly one-half milk. The experi ment lasted four or five days, and Is not likely to be repeated. The nervous suf fering that followed1 was indescribable, and 1 did not recover from Its effects for nearly two weeks. "Nearly all of our neighbors are now using Postum Food Coffee, and it is used almost exclusively by the large sanitarium in our city." A. Maynard Barbour, Bailey block, Helena, Mont.
