The subject of this memoir was born home in Leon, surrounded by- her fain? ily, on December 26, 1900. The day which commemorated the advent of the 8avior into the world heralded the ad' vent of her spirit into the saints' ever lasting rest. She came ,to America at the age of nine years. She was married to William Wallace January 20, 1868. She was the mother of five children, two sons and three daughters, Mary E. Cesslar, Thomas Wallace, Sallie C. Beck, Ida Wallace and Ira Wallace, all of whom survive her. For many years she had been a patient sufferer, but bore it in a spirit of resignation, her appoint ed lot. She had a simple and child like faith in the promises and goodness of God. It seemed to be her native ele ment to trust God's word. She was woman of strong natural afiection, and endeavored to discharge the duties fail' ing to her in the fear of God. until the weary wheels of life stood still. She leaves a devoted liuBband, and all her sorrowing children to mourn her loss, and who have the respect and sympa thy of the entire community. She wore the white flower of a blameless life, and has passed into thej presence of God. Peace be to her memory. The funeral service was held at thie home, where an appropriate^ address was giv en by Rev. Joseph Stephen, pastor of the M. E. church. M" ETTA MAY DUNN-LUBE was born in High Point township, De catur county, Iowa, December 3d, 1S76, and-died at tbe home of her parents at Crown, Iowa, on December 26, 1900, aged 24 years and 23' days. She was united in marriage to Charles Luse, April 14, 1895, with whom she lived a happy and devoted life, uiitil the silent messenger came, and sum moned her into the presence of God To tbis nnion two children were born, one of whom, Ira, a bright'and beauti ful boy, survives ber. She was con verted to God in early youth, and while she united with no church, yet Bhe was of the Methodist persuasion and faith and 9he died with a good hope. During tbe past twelve months she had bieen gradually failing in health. Young in years she had a natural clinging to life for the sake of her husband and baby boy yet she seemed to be ready iana submissive to what appears to have been the will of God. She was a de voted wife and ah affectionate mother! and will be sadly missed in her home circle. The funeral service which was conducted at the home of her parenta. at Crown, bv Rev.' Joseph Stephen, pastor of the M. E. church, was largely attended. We tender sincere Christian condolence to the young Wj!6tnd and the kindred in this premitnre -hereave ment.""

Supreme Court Placed In a Pecul ^lar Position j. The Tltua Amendment, If Upheld, will extend the Terma of Judge* fllvan. Waterman and Sherwtn for One Year Each. While they were committing that leg islative tragedy, the Titus biennial amendment, the lawyers also bungled it upso that its constitutionality cannot be tested except by a court one-half of whose members are directly -interested in its fate. An important phase of the determina tion of the validity of the measure by the supreme court bas hitherto- .been passed over without attention or refer-. ence. While much has been said of the terms of office that would be affected by the amendment, it has not been gener ally considered the amendment would, if held valid, extend for one year each the terms of three judges of the supreme court, or half the judges on the supreme bench. THOSE WHOBK TERMS. ARK EXTENDED, The judge* whose terms will be ex tended if the amendment is held valid are Judge Josiah Given, whose term, would otherwise end December 31,1901 Judge CharleB M.' Waterman, whose term will expire December 31, 1903, and Judge John C. Sherwin, whose term will end December 81, ItiOfc Thpir terms are extended directly, as the following sentence of the biennial elections: meas ure indicates: The terms of office of the judges of the supreme court which would other wise expire in odd numbered years, and all other elective state, county and township officers whose terms of office would otherwise expire in the year 1901, and members of the general assembly, whose successors would otherwise bp chosen at the general election in the vear 1901, are hereby extended one year and until their successors are elected and qualified.',' Even without this provision, how ever, the tact of having biennial elec tions would result in extending the termsof those judges of the.supreme conrt whose successors would ordinarily be chosen in tbe odd numbered years, since without any election in the odd numbered years^each judge whose suc cessors would ordinarly be chosen then would remain in office until after the election in November of the even nwn bered year. So far as the judges of the supreme court are concerned, the fact three terms are thus extended cannot but prove em barrassing in considering the Titus amendment. Ordinaril y, udge. Given, Judge Waterman and Judge Sherwin would be disqualified from passing on the validity of the ame ndment. By the mutual consent of the parties to the ac tion, however, they may take part. Section 284 of the revised code under general provisions says: "When Judge Disqualified.—A judge or justice is disqualified from acting as such, except by mutal consent of par ties, in any case wherein he is,a party or interested, or where he is related to either party by consanguinity or affinity V. within the fourth degree, or where he has been attorney for either party in the action or proceeding. But. this sec-. tion shall not prevent him from dispos ing of any preliminary matter not af fee ting the merits of the case." FOUR tfDOES A QUORUM, That it would be most satisfactory to the people of the 'state if a decision were rendered on Ithe Titus amendment by only those judgeB who are not person ally interested in the. measure-goes with-, out saying, This is not poesji!e, how ^rer« it requires lour Judges of the tixsi constituting the supreme court to fcifif* a quorum, Section 193 of the reyispt code of 1897 says: "The supreme courtv f.#/J shall consist of six judges, four of whoktt-Uff shall constitute a quorum for the trans action of business, but one alone may adjourn from day to day, or to a partife-: ular day, or until the next term." Not only are four judges required in form a quorum, but four must concur 1n order for a decision to have force. Sec tion 194 ot the code say?: "No decision of the court shall be filed un'tU it shall have been considered by the whole court and concurred in by not less'than a Ma jority of the judges/' «i Were the BUit other than a friendly one, that is coming up from the district court of Washington county, to bring about an early uecisioU on the Tittiis amendment, the probabilities are thevu pretne court, would be shut out ot hearing and determining it. It is apparent .if/ ., the amendment is to be pawed on"by the supreme court, it will require 'the concurrence of at least four judges, 'one of them being directly interested in the case. It is probable the two attorneys in Washington county, being personal friends, will-agree to overlook such dis qualifications. Were the suit unfriendly, then by objecting to.the disqualifications of the three judges named above, ei|her party to the action could at once Pre vent the supreme court from 'passing on the case, and thus force the decision of the lower court to stand. A decision such as this, however, would have no effect outside of the particular case it in volved. t~ v. The circumstances are unfortunate for those members of the supreme court whose terms are extended by the amendment. They, or at least som'e of thefn, must take part in the decision, or the question will remain undetermined. If a decision shall be rendered upholding the validity of the amendment, by reason of the pod tion taken by judges whose terms are extended, they at 'once place themselves in position open to criticism. The situation is undoubtedly ... one of the most peculiar thftt ever ^on fronted the supreme court of the state, and it may prove, as some believe, a contributing cause to knocking out the amendment completely., What Shall I Wear?
