J. T. Marvin, who has been preaching for some weeks for the Con gregational church at Ogden, has re ceived a call to that pastorate and ex pects to move there at once. Mrs. J. F. Whitmore, of 1409 Park street, had a narrow escape from ser ious loss by fVre on Thursday, just be fore noon. She was away from the house when her sister discovered fire in a closet .between the kitchen and bed room. A large amount of bedding and clothing were stored there and the lire had smoldered for some time be fore discovery and burst into strong blaze as soon as the door was opened. Mts. Whitinore's sister by hard work put it out alarm and was considerably scorched herself in doing so. The loss Is esti mated at about ?70. It has been publicly announced that A. W. Frazier, who has been the Iowa Central agent at Eldora for some time, has been selected to take the place made vacant here by the resignation some weeks ago of Frank S.

The first was for damages for the death of Mr. Rutherford, who was killed while attempting to get some of his cattle off the railroad track, and the second for the damage sustained by the, loss of cattle killed at the same time At a special election held fo- the purpose, Chester township has voted to build anew school house in the place of the one burned some months ago. The building proper is to cost $1.S00. but it was also voted to make it a two-story structure, and use the upper story as a high school, with an addi tional $1,000 of cost. It is expected that when this building is completed, the people of that vicinity will have as good high school facilities without so much expense as they have hither to had in sending to Grinnell. G. A. Proctor has discontinued his collection business here, and taken a position with the Iowa Manufacturing Company. He will travel for them this summer. Captain E. E.

The lid was blown sky-high in the market this morning. It seemed that. there was no limit on the prices which sellsr would ask, and even the buyers were so imbued with the idea that values were destined to jump to much paying any values that seemed at all within the bounds of reason At tne opening, prices were 151i20 cents high er, and later a fiat 20 cents higher than the best time of the previous session. Packers were just as eager for offer ings as shippers. Packers still contend that there Is no scarcity in the country, but that the booming market has engendered bullish sentiment, inspiring growers to price their holdings higher than shippers can afford to pay. In other words, the country market has ad vanced faster than prices at central market. Sheep. Receipts were light, and trade was rather slow. Sheep were very scarce, and prices were generally steady.

The argument that the feeders liqui dated all of their stock before the ad vance came about in the market does not hold good. Kvidence of this mis statement is shown by the increase in marketing of both cattle and hogs this month as against the corresponding month a year ago. Cattle receipts thus far tliis month total about 225,000. a few thousand increase nil marketing March a-year ago. while hog arrivals at 550.000 for the month to iate stand S.500 larger than a year ago. Naturally those feeders who liqui dated their holdings in December. Jan uary and February are not getting the benefit of the recent high prices.

Stiite Department Musi Wait Ten Days to Hear Reason For Rejecting Hill TOWER WANTS TO HOLD ON Has Resignation Not Yet Placed His Emperor to on File Refusal of Accept Dr. Hill Remains a Matter of Mystery Considered Fine Diplo macy—Washington News. •Washington, March 27.—Just why, in these days of frequent cable com munication. it should be necessary for the state department to wait a week or ten days upon the arrival of a let ter to learn the exact nature of the representations made to this govern ment by Germany in connection with the selection of Dr. David Jayne Hill as American ambassador at Berlin, is not clear, yet, according to tho offi cial statement, such is the case. The fact is. that as far as official records go, the state department is not even yet in possession of the information that Dr. Hill's selection was nut acceptable to the German emperor. It does know, however. that Ambassador Tower, whom Dr. Hill was to succeed, has dis patched a letter from Berlin to the state department in relation to ihis matter, and if public Interest in the subject continues to increase as it has within the pasl twenty-four hours the officials here may decide to call upon Mr. Tower to anticipate his letter by cabling the substance of it in the de partment's cipher. Fine Diplomacy. In view of the absolute lack of offi cial information as to the effect that the emperor has finally refused to re ceive Dr. Hill, it is now suggested that instead of proceeding at once to the extreme point, the German foreign of fice people have resorted to the more delicate and diplomatic method of ac complishing their purpose of preventing Dr. Hill from coming to Berlin in the capacity of ambassador by allowing Mr. Tower to become acquainted with the fact that there are objections to the new appointee, and then it would be politic, therefore, not to press the appointment to the point where it would become necessary to make a for mal matter of Dr. Hill's unavailability. The diplomatic circle is still speculat ing as to the cause for the attitude of the German government, and it is fair to state that upon none of the theories so far advanced—such as some unpleasant happening on the oc casion of Prince Henry's visit to this country, or dissatisfaction with Dr. Hill's career while American minister to The Hague—are diplomats able to agree. No Resignation on File. One of the latest suggestions is in substance that Ambassador Tower de sires to remain in Berlin for some time to come and that his influence with the emperor has been exerted to ^issuade the authorities at Washington rt-om re Sheep Estimated receipts for today requirements necessary to neutralize and remove the humors from the circu- SCOTCH COW.

It is a. curious t'acl that these records do not even show that any change lias been contemplated in American representa tion at the Berlin embassy: there is not even on file a resignation of his office by Ambassador Tower Last fall came the first intimation from Berlin that a change was in pros pect, this being a short news dispatch staling thai Mr. Tower had decided thai his family interests required him to return to America. Soon after this it: developed that President Roosevelt had received a letter from the am bassador confirmatory of this news ami explaining that his children had reached an age when they should matriculate at some of the American universities and he wished to be near hem. There was nothing in the nature of a formal resignation and it was stated at the time that the president had en deavored to induce Air. Tower to re consider his decision. The German em peror also having conceived a feeling of strong friendship for both Mr. and Mrs. Tower, is understood to have used his influence with them to bring about a charge of mind, but in vain. So the president accepted the situa tion and announced the name of the successor chosen for the Berlin em bassy and the other diplomatic changes that depended thereupon. MEAT PRICES ARE GOING UP. Now is the Time to Make a Noise Like a Vegetarian. New York, March 27.—Retail prices of meats of all grades have increased 2 cents a pound within the la.st week and before another week has gone ibv it is likely that prices will go from 3 to 5 cents a pound higher as a result of a strange combination of circumstan ces which hiLs affected the cattle rais ing industry of this country. In fact, local packers say that if conditions be come much worse it will be necessary for the big packers of this country to import sheep and cattle from the Ar gentine republic. England and Aus tralia. Persons visiting the butcher shops in the last week for their customary sup ply of meat, no matter what its qual ity. have found that from 3 to 5 cents a. pound has been added to the price they paid for .beef a week ago. When they turned to lamb and mutton as a substitute they found that the price had increased 2 cents a pound and upon asking for the price ofcpork found that the heavy demand had increased that product from 1 to 2 cents a pound from sausage to loin roast and chops. When asked for an explanation the only thing that could be said by the retailer was that the wholesale price had been increased from $2 to $2.50 a hundred pounds and that the loss to the dealers in bone and fat was so much greater in proportion that they felt compelled to make the increase larger than that made by the whole saler. whose sales in bulk diet not call for such a proportionate loss.
