COUNTY TREASURER
W. H. Allen of Elkhorn Wis.
K,
Tell» How He Wm Cured
of Kidney Disease*
Elkhorn, Wis., Oct.23.—W. H. Allen,
of this place, to the treasurer of Wai
worth county. He was a victim of
kidney disease and suffered greatly on
account of It until he found out that
Dodd's Kidney Pills had cured thou
sands of others of the same disease,
and he began to use them. In a letter
to the proprietors of Dodd's Kidney
Pill*, dated Sept. 11, 1899, he tells what
the pills did for him:
"I can conscientiously recommend
Dodd's Kidney Pills as being: the best
medicine I ever took for kidney trouble,
sleepless nights and other trouble
cause by diseased kidneys. I obtained
permanent relief from the upe of one
box, and I take them occasionally now,
as I know them to be the best of Aedl
dne."
Dodd's Kidney Pills are sold by deal
ers In medicines at 50 cents a box or six
boxes for $2.50. -Bent on receipt of price
by the Dodd's Medicine Company, Buf

GommlsaloDer Delevan Brings Game
Fish to Manhalltown for River
and Lake Dewey.
Between 60,000 and 75,000 Placed
In the Waters, All Large
Enough to Fry.
Fijh Laws Will Now Be Vigorously
Enforced—A Warning to
Violators.
Between GO,000 and 75,000 game fish,
from the bayous of the Mississippi
river, were brought to the city in the
state's fish c.ar, "Hawkeye," Thursday
evening by Mr. George E. Delevan, of
Esthervllle, state fish and game war
den.
A finer lot of members of the finny
tribe could hot be imagined than those
Issued by Mr. Delevan to this city, at
the Instance of Commandant C. C. Hor
ton, of the Soldiers' Home, who made
the request in order that he migfct stock
the Soldiers' Home lake, Dewey. The
commandant was promised the fish
some time ago, providing he could se
cure transportation, and the same was
secured from the Chicago & Northwest
ern railway, the car being brought in
on the local train from the east at 5:45.
A car had also been asked for the river,
about a year ago, by Postmaster J.
Saint, and others, but as it was only
possrble to furnish one car at the pres
ent time the flsh were divide'd equally
between the lake and the river, and
were placed into the waters as soon as
they could be transported, in barrels, to
the respective destinations. Mr. Del
evan has promised, however, that next
spring, if possible, he'will bring another
car to this city, and they will be placed
in the river.
The fish were not brought directly to
the city from the Mississippi, but from
the state's retaining ponds at Sabula.
Marshalltown's load is the eleventh de
livered by the state flsh commissioner
since the 20th of September last. The
entire number furnished to the Iowa
streams and lakes Is over 1,000.000. To
make the delivery possible two gangs of
men are kept busy all the time seining
the fish from the bayous and filling the
ponts. Mr. Delevan was accompanied
by two men, L. and A. Peterson, ot
Spirit Lake, who are kept busy on the
car cariner for the' fish, keeping the wa
ter stirred up so as to provide the nec
essary air to sustain them. Every fish
was in excellent condition when the car
arrived here, even to one eel, which had
been dumped Into the receiving tanks
with the fish. Mr. Delevan said to a
representative of the T.-R. that he
would have been here sooner this fall
had not his work been interfered with
on account of the high water that has
prevailed on the Mississippi.
The fish that are placed in the river
and Home lake* are principally black
bass and croppies. They are not mln
nows, either, for there is not one in the
lot that is not large enough for the fry
ing pan. The bass will average, so. Mr.
Delevan says, between one and one-halt
and two pounds. There are also In tht
lot several pickerel, the largest ?f
which was about the length of a man's
arm.
Mr. Delevan was asked if every deliv
ery he made was.as fine a lot of flsh as
those brought htre. He said that it was
probable that all -would not average as
fine a lot throughout, because the Mar
shalltown delivery was composed of es
pecially fine fish, but he said he didn't
believe In stocking the rivers with small
fish when larger ones could be secured,
for when small fish were used to stock
the various streams it was always nec
essary to wait a few years before good
fishing could be obtained. After the
spawning season, next spring, fisher
men can enjoy the sport to their heart's
content, and at the same time there will
still be a younger generation ready for
the next season. Mr. Delevan and his
assistants left for the east at 7:55 in
the evening. In order to reach the re
taining station in time to obtain an
other car of flsh for Iowa Falls, Inch
is to be delivered this evening.
WARNING TO VIOLATORS.
As the head officers of the Iowa
Sportsmen's Association are located in
Marshalltown, it has been determined
to go after some of the violators of the
flsh laws. It Is a notorious fact that
seining, dynamiting, etc., are carried
on in this vicinity and it is proposed to
put a stop to it. Dr. W. B. Kibbey is
the.president of the association, and
Mr. L. C. Abbott is secretary. On their
authority 'the T.-R. hereby warns the
violators that a sharp lookout will be
kept and that seining, etc., must be
stopped. A deputy state game warden
is now located in this city, and any one
found violating the law will be prose
cuted to the limit. A reward will be
offered for the arrest and conviction of
any one violating the laws.
At the present time lit is illegal to
take any kind of game flsh from the
waters of the state, as the closed season
commenced Nov. 1 and continues until
May 15. It is known that game fish
have been caught in this vicinity since
the reason closed. As the penalty Is if
line of not less than $50 or ten days in
Jail, the sport will oe pretty expensive
for some one if it Is continued.
DIRECTORS HERE TONIGHT.

Election.
Vice President and Treasurer George
R. Morse, of the Iowa Central, acconv
panted by the Chicago directors of the
company, arrived in the city this after
noon from the south in the company's
official car, the Hawk Eye, which was
sent to Chicago a few days ago to re
ceive and transport the party to this
city and over the line, Mr. Morse being
on his annual tour of Inspection.
Mr. Morse and the directors were ac
companied by Acting General Manager
J. N. Tlttemore, General Superintend
ent C. W. Hunting-ton and General
Auditor T. I. Warfson. The two former
gentlemen met the party in Chicago
and Mr. Wasson went to Oskaloosa
Thursday evening to be present at the
annual meeting of the directors of the
Iowa Central & Western, the name un
der which the new Belmond extension
la Incorporated.
The party left Peoria Thursday
morning, coming as far north aa Oska
loosa, where the gentlemen were enter
tained over nlaht. The forehoon was
•pent Inspecting tbe aouth end ot the
1
line In and about Albia, at that point
looking over the mining plant of the
Hocking Valley Coal Company. The
party consists, aside from Mr. Morse,
of Mr. W. Eugene Kimball, New York,
private secretary to President Kimball
Mr. C. F. Quincy, Mr. Fredl.S. Fales,
Mr. Charles G. Du Bois, and Mr. Fred
erick Merritt, all of Chicago. After ar
riving in this city the New York and
Chicago gentlemen were shown about
the company property, Including an In
spection of the shops, round House and
general offices, by the general officials
here. The gentlemen will spend tonight
in Marshalltown, and Saturday morn
ing will leave for the north over the
main line to Hampton, and thence over
the new extension to Algona, where the
party will divide, some going to St.
Paul and the others returning to this
city for Sunday.
At the meeting of the board of direc
tors of the Iowa Central & Western
Railroad Company Mr. Morse was elect
ed president, vice Col. L. M. Martin re
signed, and Mr. T. I. Wasson was elect
ed treasurer. No decision has yet been
reached as to further extensions, espe
cially of the Belmond branch.
ARE SELLING STATE PROPERTY.
Some soldiers' Home Veterans I)l«
posing of ClothlnK i'urnlHlicd Tliem
by State.
There Isj going to be some trouble in
the Sbldlers' Home very soon if there
is a continuance of the practice of dis
posing of property, by the members,
furnished them toy the state of Iowa.
The practice Is not a general one, it is
true, but it has been Indulged in to a
greater or lesser extent by some of the
members. Commandant Horton Is
aware of the proceedings, as evidenced
by a reply given to a reporter of the
T.-R. when asked about it Thursday
night. "Yes," he said, "we have ascer
tained of late that some of the mem
bers have sold their overcoats, other
articles of clothing and shoes, and a
warning has already been issued
against a repetition of the offense. The
people of Marshalltown should be very
careful how they purchase such arti
cles, also, for so sure as the names of
buyers of any state property are as
certained the goods In their possession
will at once be replevied, and they will
have no way of getting even."
The worst trouble the Home officials
have had in regard to the clothing is
in the matter of overcoats. Some of
the soldiers have overcoats that are
serviceable enough, for a year's wear,
but they have drawn new ones. In this
case some have seen fit to dispose of
the new ones and use the last year's
garments themselves. Commandant
Horton is determined, however, to put a
stop to the trouble, even if he has to re
sort to stringent measures.
WITH A KUSH.
Pickpocket Bush Concludes Not to
Plead Guilty and is Tried in
Short Order.
Case Concluded in Two Hours and a
Verdict of Guilty is Re
turned.
W. Bush, one of the men indicted for
pocket picking, changed his mind re
garding his plea, and when the case
against hiin and his partner, Wilson,
was called in the district court this
morning he entered a plea of not guilty.
Wilson pleaded guilty to the charge of
larceny from the person.
The trial of Hush was proceeded with
and a jury was secured without effort.
The following jurymen were accepted:
C. O. Frazer, E. R. Welch, F. B. Sher
lock, F. C. Jerome, Fred M. Way, A.
Lang, W. A. Cope, George Gregory, C.
B. Adair, Charles Hull, Stephen Shank
and W. A. Fuller. C. AV. Bacon, who
observed AVilson and Bush walking im
mediately behind Mrs. Kmma Hogan
camp when the latter's purse was tak
en, and who saw Wilson pass the purse
to Bush, was the main witness for the
state. Mrs. Hogancamp also testified.
Bush might as well have adhered to
his intention to plead guilty, aa very
short work was made of his case.
Within two hours from the time it was
called the evidence had all been intro
duced. the arguments made and the
jury instructed, and fifteen minutes
after being sent out the jury returned
a verdict of guilty. No time was fixed
for the passing of sentence.
E. T. Radloff was placed on trial at
the close of the Bush ease, charged
with gambling. A jury was secured be
fore noon, as follows:
R. C. Peterson, L. Schneider, David
Rhoads, J. Kirkendahl, J. R. Knight, F.
M. Linn, W. G. Dakin, W. N. Dicker
son, G. R. Haas. Charles Kleepsle, C. O.
Frazer and E. R. Welch.
Radloff is accused of allowing gam
bling at his former home in Timber
Creek township, the Dowds being the
complaining witnesses.
The ease of Mahlon Russell against
Lou Holder, a suit to recover $1,000
damages for injuries received by being
thrown from a horse sold by defendant
to plaintiff and which was represented
to be gentle, was concluded at 5
o'clock Thursday evening and 'the jury
was sent out. An agreement was not
reached until 1:30 a. m., when a verdict
awarding Russell $50 was returned.
A BIG DEAL IN REALTY.
Old Clemens Homestead, Northeast
of the City, Sold to Tamil County
Man for
As shown by the real estate transfers
today one of the biggest deals in realty
made in Marshall county for some time,
or, In fact, the largest deal made during
the incumbency of County Recorder
Packer, is the transfer of the old Clem
ens homestead, two miles northeast of
the city. The title of the deed is in
Lavina Clemens, relict of Archibald
Clemens, John, Archibald, William and
Henry Clemens, Mrs. Melissa Ann
Pegg, Mrs. Nancy E. Walker and Mrs.
I.oulsa Lane, helrs-at-law of Archibald
Clemens, deceased, to Henry Merrill, of
Tama county. The transfer deeds are
on the farm, containing 429.86 acres, lo
cated In Marion township, for $21,493, a
little more than $48 per acre. Mr. Mer
rill evidently appreciates good Mar
shall county land, and has the money to
pay for it. When the bond for the deed
was given, last May, Mr. Merrill paid
to the Clemens estate $7,000 in cash, and
when the deed was filed the balance,
$14,493, was paid. The sum of $21.50 was
necessary to defray the expense ot
revenue stamps when the deed was
filed with the recorder.
Another transfer, also shown by to
day's report, waa the transfer of the old
H. J. Stevens farm, Vienna town-
ship.. C. J. Stevens, administrator of
the estate of his father, transfers to
Claus F. Jacobs, of Tarha county, the
224 acres, comprising the farm, for ?9,
632.
AMUSEMENTS.
Fifth Appearance at the Odeon of
Murry «te Mack. Greeted by a Largo
House.
Although the production of "Finne
gan's 400" was the fifth appearance of a
Murray & Mack company In this city,
the crowd in attendance at t'he presen
tation Thursday night was of its usual^
large proportions. In some respects the
company is a better one than any ever
seen here. Some of the specialties are
good, while others, of course, could be
Improved, including the singing. Miss
Musette Gibbs' contralto solos were the
best In a musical way. The feats In
contortion of the DeArville sisters were
very good, as was also the tramp spe
cialties of Mr. William Howard. Some
of the brash horse play for which the
two principals have been noted in the
past has been done away with, and al
though a "Murray & Mack" would not
be worthy the name without a certain
amount of knockabout work, there is
not too much of It this season, for the
kind. Judging from the vociferous ap
plause the play pleased the large audi
ence.
