Trustee.— Captain J. L. Allen was
el.cted trustee to succeed Mr. J. B. Mo-
Curdy in Oskaloosa township.
Keep to the Bight.— There is a
growing indifference on the part of
many drivers in Oskaloosa as to which
side of the street they drive on. If the
generally accepted rule of driving to
the right would be more closely ob
served, many accidents and collisions
would be avoided.
New Secretary.— Mr. C. C. Mich
ener, on account of ill health, has been
compelled to resign his position as gen
er*l secretary of the city Y. M. C. A.,
and at a meeting of the executive
board on Wednesday evening, Mr. Alva
Negus was elected to the place. In re
tiring from the work Mr. Michener
bears with him the record of having
performed bis duties faithfully and well
and the best wishes of all with whom
he has come in contact, *or renewed
health and -nccess in other walks of
life. Mr. Negus, the new secretary is
a graduate of Penn College.and a thor
ough Christian young man who will
perform his every duty to the credit of
himself and the satisfaction of all con
cerned. May the association continue
to grow and prosper and its good work
never lag.
October —Though the time for his
song is past, Mr. Burrell, of the Wash
ington Press, thus sweetly sings of his
favorite month: “October is tbe Blonde
of tbe seasons, fairest glowing sister of
the twelve. Form perfect, eyes clear,
hair glorious, such color in cheeks and
lips I Spring was a pretty little roly
poly baby, but here is a perfect woman,
f ully developed,lines graceful, beaming
with health, radiant in all her ways.
Blossoms are pretty, but fruit? Is not
that better? Is not performance,
fruition, perfection, better than any
mere promise? An apple tree, loaded
with ruddy fruit, is lovelier than when
it was a revelation and apocalypse of
blossoms. And for odor, fruit excels
the blossom. Smell of an apple,a peach,
a plum,a walnut, ripe pennyroyal—and
abolish the drug store and its bottles of
perfume. One would wish to be born,
to wed, and—at last when one must—
to die in October, with all her graceful
forms ard vivid tints and pungent
odors around , one.”
Looks Bad. —Tbe following item
concerning a former Oskaloosa young
man. who enjoyed a good reputation
here is taken from tbe Ogden, Utah
Standard of Nov. 4:—“E A Lutes was
arrested yesterday by Marshal Metcalf
on the charge of obtaining money under
false pretenses. Last evening be was
still in jail, having been unable to se
cure bonds. The story of the arrest
was told by Marshal Metcalf as fol
lows: “Antoa Karlsoa, a Swede, ar
rived yesterday morning from Denver.
He wished to go to Portland, After
various attempt to find a ticket broker
bestiuck Lutes. Lutes sold him a
second class ticket from Sioux City to
Portland, void after Nov. sth. For
this Karlson paid S2O on tbe consider
ation that Lutes was to check his trunk
to Portlabd. Lutes took aD. & R. G.
check from Karlson and gave him in
return a dupucite U. P. check No. 16,
018. When Karlson got down to the
depot he looked after his baggage and
found it could not go. After futile
attempts to get it straightened out be
called on Marshal Metcalf and told his
story. The marshal went down with
Lutes and found bis explanations un
satisfactory. The record at the bag
sago office failed to show up tbe check
16,018. Telegraphic dispatches brought
the word that such a number had not
been seen nor checked anywhere. In
the meantime Karlson lost his train
and had already lost his check for the
baggage by the exchange with Lutes.”
Election Echoes.— The E f -Dodge
Messenger has one of the smallest
roosters we have yet seen. The Dem
ocrats swept the platter in Webster
county, with tbe exception of one town
ship trustee, and be bad a majority of
two votes. The rooster remarks, “There
is a little balm in gilead yet.” Tbe
Opinion man down tbe street publishes
an immense table of tbe vote in Ma
haska county. The column of tbe
Union Labor vote is footed up and tbe
total given, butth other columns were
too big for Eli to get over in order to
get bis paper out on time.... A Des
Moines business man stayed up in tbe
dome of tbe state house all night Thurs
day, to pay a debt contracted by betting
on Wheeler.... A Democrat on election
day saidhe“tbougbtGeaTbompson bad
been in office long enough. If tbe
United States can’t divide up a little it
is time the people were taking bold.”
Mr. Thompson is doing business at tbe
same old stand and will as long as be
gives satisfaction to tbe express com
pany.... Tbe funniest bet we have
beard of was made between two prom
inent. men of tbis city at a iate hour on
election night. They each had consid
erable money up before that time on
their choice of candidates, and when
the returns were nearly all in they each
became scared and rushed out to hedge.
They happened to meet, and each bet
enough on tbe other fellow’s candidate
to make them even all around.... He is
far from borne and ill at ease who does
not know exactly why his men got left,
and be has learned it all since Tuesday,
t00....0n election night a small pearl
handled knife walked out of tbis office,
—perhaps unaided and alone. Any one
seeing it walking about will please
stop it, as we need it in our business.

Duluth Tribune, Nov. 5,
Ida Francis Slocum committed
suicide yesterday morning. Without
sayip • a word to anyone, or giving any
pren: mition of her terrible purposejshe
walked into tbe building just vacated
by the Slocum restaurant, took from
tbe show case an old revolver, went to
t' e kitchen in the rear and deliberately
put a bullet through her heart. Her
father stood beside her before the last
sign of life went out, but the young
girl would give no answer to bis soo
bing questions, and made no sign of tbe
reason that prompted her to tbe dread
ful act.
Undertaker Filliatrault was called
upon to prepare the remains for burial
and they now lie in the rear of the res
taurant within a few feet of the spot
where the deed was committed. Cor
oner Eklund will hold an inquest this
Miss Slocum was 20 years of age and
was an unusually bright and attrac
tive girl. She came here about a year
ago and her father went into tbe res
taurant business on Fourth street in
the Woodbridge building, but the lease
was made out in the name of Ida and
she did the business. When the busi
ness was removed to the Stewart block
on Central avenue the young girl was
practically the head of the business,
and her bright appearance and business
qualities were a matter of comment
among the many boarders who visited
the houee.
Yesterday a lease was to have been
iffected whereby Ida was to purchase
the Peterson & Stewart restaurant for
a consideration of SSOO. Lawyer
Browne had drawn tbe papers and ex
pected to make the transfer yesterday
There are a great many rumors in
regard to the reason which prompted
the girl to take her life It is under
stood that the evening before she had
some trouble with her parents and a
heated discussion ensued in regard to
tbe Peterson lease, but it was simply
an ordinary family jar and nothing
serious was thought of it at tbe time.
Another and more probable reason is
that it is a case of unrequited love. A
well known young man about town
who has been paying the lady many at
tentions left the city night before last
for Terre Haute, Indiana. It is under
stood that he does not expect to return.
It was thought that the unfortunate
girl may have been wronged at his
hands, but the post mortem held yes
terday by Drs. Foren and Charest dis
proved the assumption. Some two
weeks ago she told a lady friend that if
ever the gentleman in question “went
back on her” she would kill herself.
She wrote a letter to him Wednesday
night and a companion heard him say,
alter be read it: “It is too late now.”
The who’i affair is a mystery.
Around th« State.
An old man,well known in Dubuque,
who a few years ago retired from active
business with a competency, is now
shoveling dirt and breaking rock on
the street. His appearance m the ca
pacity of a street laborer has excited
much comment in tbe past few days.
A petition is being circulated In Har
din county for the pardon of Nate and
Frank RainsDarger, who are serving
life sentences for the murder of Enoch
Johnson. They were convicted at a
cost of $12,000, to the county, and after
a career of crime extending through
many years.
Jack Delaney was found dead in a
hotel *t Davenport Monday morning.
Once ho was a prominent citizen and
twenty-five years ago was a police offi
cer in Davenport. Liquor wrecked his

Carroll has good prospects for secur
-sng the much talked of railroad depot
next season. The Chicago Herald of
a recent date speaks of an appropriation
of $30,000 made by tbe Northwestern
company for the improvement of its
premises at Carroll.
In cleaning out bis cellar last spring
Mr. Wm. Wallace, of Vintot.,threw the
garbage, including some cabbage
stumps, in the garden where they were
plowed under. One of these sprouted
and grew three stalks. Instead of going
to seed, three well developed heads of
cabbage grew. The new stalks are fully
three feet long.

Successful. The entertainment
given by the Epworth League of First
M.E.church,on Friday night, waa at
tended by as many as could be com
fortably seated in the church. All the
selections on the program, both song
and recitation were from the writings
of the poet Longfellow, and the list of
participants included Mrs. Logan, Mrs.
Cowgill, Misses Mary Dobyn*, Bose
Blanchard, Stella Wightman, Amy and
Lulu Hutchison, Louise Houghton,Pet
and Pearl O’Hara, Cora Knowltou,
Mary Haynes and Kittle Little, and
Messrs.R. A. McPherrin, Elmo Ham
mond, Taylor Jackson, Walter Wright
! and George Greasby. The entertain-
I ment was in charge of Mrs. A. E.
' Shipley and was in all ways a success.
The annual business meeting of tbe
Mahaska County Agricultual Society
was held in tbe secretary’s office on
Monday afternoon.
From tbe reports of tbe officers it
was shown that this year’s fair bad an
increase in receipts from all sources
except tbe admission fees. This deficit
in attendance can be accounted for on
account of tbe bad weather. One
thousand dollars more was paid out in
premiums this year than ever before.
From these reasons, more premiums
and less money at the gate, the society
ran a little behind this year but are not
in tbe least discouraged and will bend
every effort toward making next year’s
fair greater than ever before.
It was also agreed to issue $2,000
more stock in shares of SIOO each. It
is tbe desire of tbe society that tbe prin
cipal part of this stock be taken by those
living outside of town that a more gen
eral interest will be taken all over tbe
couDty m tbe great fairs.
The newly elected officers are: Pres
ident, H. H. Prine; vice president, Ma
jor McMullin; secretary, H. H. Sheriff;
treasurer, R. P. Bacon. Directors: W.
A. McNeill, I. Frankel, J. A.Kalbach,
W. R. Lacey, G.B.McFall, M.K.Prine,
R. Redman, P. Stumps.
The change in the secretaryship was
made because Mr. McFall alsoluteiy
refused to serve as bis time is all occu
pied in other business matters. He
has done efficient work and retires with
tbe best will of all concerned. Mr.
Sheriff is a live young business man
and will at all times be found doing
bis full share to boom tbe great fair
and subserve tbe best interests of tbe
society in all ways.
Knights of the Grip.—The elev
enth anniversary reunion and banquet
of the lowa Traveling Men’s Associa
tion is to be held at the Savery House,
Des Moines, Friday evening, December
4,1891, at 8 o’clock. Mr. W. H. Wray,
of tbis city, is a member f tbe invita
tion committee.
Will Operate Both.— The Fort
Dodge Messenger says: “The Ft. Dodge
packing house, which has not been op
erated since early in the summer, an
nounces that it will resume buying and
killing bogs on next Monday. George
J. Frazer, manager of the packing
bouse at Oskaloosa, will also operate
tbe plant here.”
Many More. —Mr. Williams, of In
dependence, the owner of Allerton, is
having some very tempting offers made
to move his outfit. His services to In
dependence have been of great value
and his success in bis line has made
lowa famous for superior trotting
horses Chicago extends an offer, it is
said, of $300,000 to move there during
the world’s fair.
In His Glory.— The fisherman is in
bis element now. Tbe stories told of
tbe black bass are agonizing to tbe man
who can’t go fishing, and there is left
only the comfort that the biggest ones
that get away from the other fellow re
main to be caught later. Fish stories
always outweigh tbe fish. But it is
said lowa rvers are alive with lots of
game fish.
A Little Mixed.— The proof read
er on a Des Moines paper was so much
absorbed in election returns that be
permitted tbe following to go in on
last Wednesday morning: Melan Don
asky and Ida Quay were united in the
holy bonds of saurkaut which will be
sold b y the quart or the barrell. Mr.
Mr.Donasky is an esteemed codfish at 10
cents a pound while tbe bride has many
bams for sale at a shilling a pound.
Rev. Brown officiating.
Would not Change -Bishop Perry,
of the lowa Diocese of the Episcopal
church was recently elected bishop of
Nova Scotia, but refused to accept the
position. In speaking of this matter
he said: “That action of the church in
Nova Scotia was taken without my
knowledge. 1 had to refuse the posi
tion because 1 am an American and too
patriotic to swear allegiance to the
queen of England, no matter how good
a woman she is. I refused, notwith
standing the salary in Nova Scotia
would have been jußt twice what I am
receiving in lowa. But my ancestors
on both my father’s and mother’s side
were officers in line under Washington,
and I can hardly harbor the thought of
becoming a subject to Great Britain.”
To emphsize his pride in his patriotic
ancestry the bishop pointed to a little
white silken badge in the lapel of his
black habit, which denoted that he is a
member of the Order of Oincinnatus.

Good.— From the home of A. A.
Hoover, near Penn College,were picked
election day some of the finest peaches
we have seen this season. Mrs. Hoover
remembered our office twitb some of
the best.
The Mandolins.— On Saturday
evening this office was the recipient of
a serenade by the Will Hoover mando
lin club, and it was a very touching
affair. The club hss not been prac
ticing long, but their sweet melody
reached heaven’s doors, no doubt.
W hen they struck that favorite march,
“The Bootleggers Joy,” there was a
touch and sympathy in the matter sent
out that brought tears to an iron dog.
We feel highly honored, at the atten
tion showered on The Herald— and
these sweet musicians know that we
all love music.
Sad Suicide.— Our columns give the
particulars of the suicide of Miss Ida
Slocum, formerly of this city, but now
of West Duluth. When a resident here
Miss Slocum was highly respected by
all as a young woman of much worth,
industrious and of excellent business
qualifications. She has borne a great
burden for several years, and it is not
much to be wondered at that she sought
a surcease to accumulating trouble by
death at her own hands. Many here
will deeply regret the sorrowful end
that has thus come upon a life that
should have had more of its sunshine
and less of its shadow.
Mad Dog.—Pack wood, down on the
Narrow Gauge, had a mad dog scare
last week and the community is still
excited over the matter. One dog went
mad, supposedly, and bit several other
dogs. He then attacked several chil
dren, one of whom, Earl Evert, four
years old, was knocked down. Earl’s
six-year-old brother ran to his rescue
and was bitten on the arm while fight
ing the brute. The four year old boy
theD began fighting the dog off his old
er brother and was also severely bitten.
Their father took both the brave boys
to Chicago for treatment. Two men
were bitten by the dog but not serious
ly. All the dogs in that vicinity are
being shot.
Some Don’ts.—Byron V. See vers
will not be robbed of the pleasure of
going away from all of us this winter,
to Des Moines. Henry Lunt will not
be called away from his comfortable
home in in Richland this winter, to
withstand the temptations of life
the capital. No, Henry will remain
with the boys. Brother Ross will not
move into the treasury department,nor
will John Jaeger take Capt. Evans’
place on the Board. There will be no
"moving in” in this county on the part
of our Democratic friends—they hold
the roost that Republican votes gave
them two years ago, and again by this
same grace, Capt. Martin is kept out
of the office of sheriff, and Miss Brown
out of Superintendent’s office. Both
of them should have been elected—both
were as worthy as any others on the
ticket, but the conditions went against
them. We deeply regret thut among
the “don’ts are John Martin and Oora
