most heartily thank for it.

When 17 years old my Bon was . ‘st attacked
try epileptlo fits, at intervals of one year, then
four months, three months, two months, one
month, then every three weeks, every nine days
and later even twice a day. We used many

THE HERALD-
Circulation Nearly Three Thousand.
At Two Dollars Per Annum.
ALBERT W. SWALM,
Editor and Proprietor.
OSKALOOSA, - - - IOWA:
November 19, 1891.
—The Sons of Veterans now claim a
memberahip?of 200,000.
—Pennsylvania with its 60,000 major
ity is the banner republican state this
year.
Wheeler carried 60 counties while
Boies only earned 39—but the 39 were
loaded.
—The Dea Moines cotton mill is mak
ing 30,000 yards of goods per week and
cannot fill its orders.
—Uncle Sam has still over 600.000,000
ac es of land subject to settlement.
There is room for all to have a farm,
and grow rich thereon,raising corn and
things.
—There are annexation clubs beine
formed throughout Canada, where the
question of annexation to the United
States is discussed. The movement is
to favor annexation.
—The Democrats did not carry a sin
gle legislature at the north last Tues
day. From. Massachusetts to the far
west the Republicans have one or both
houses in each state.
—The face of that leading Demo
cratic light, "Stormy” Jordan” appears
in the Dm Moines Capital. He is known
as the general manager of "The Road
to Hell.’ He is “purty” if he is tough.
—The lowa City Republican says that
fifty-five prohibition members of the
!■ >wa house have the say as to wheth
er or not the prohibitory law shall be
repealed and that the rest of us are not
in it.
—The Chicago Masons are building a
temple whose top shall reach heaven
or thereabouts. It will be twenty-one
stories high, and when completed will
be the grandest Masonic temple on the
globe.
—There is but one flag in this coun
try. Commander-in-chief Palmer is
right in requesting members of the or
der not to participate in demonstra
tions in which the confederate flag is
displayed.
—Governor Boies has issued a proc
lamation offering a reward of S3OO for
the discovery of the body of Peter Lar
son, supposed to have been murdered
about Aug. 22, near Thornton, in Cerro
Gordo county.
—Supt. Sabin retires from office with
the respect and confidence of everybody.
He went down with his ticket, though
he lead it by over three thousand votes,
and would have been elected had he
received 894 more votes.
—Wasn’t it “amusin” to see Harry
Harrington and Jim Bolton,after their
red hot fight on the side-walk question
last spring, hitched together and work
ing in the same breeching for democra
cy. It is now in order for them to fall
out again.
—Let our Democratic friends in their
joy bear in mind that it does not al
ways settle a case to have a decision
rendered. Decisions are sometimes
and often wrong. Even the tribunal
of the people is a changeable one. In
this case the minority can well rest on
“higher law” as quoted so eloquently
by Gov. Boies during the campaign,
and bide the day that is bound to come.
—The Railway Age, a'inon-political
paper says: “It is only a few years
since our steel rails were bought in
Great Britian at a cost of $165 a ton or
so; but in the first seven months of the
present government year the entire im
ports of iron and steel rails amounted
to only the petty quantity of 151 tons,
and the price at the home mills has
fallen to a little over S3O a ton. Pro
tection to American industries has
shown very tangible results.”
—According to the Dea Moines Capi
tal one of the next appointments in the
Burlington management will be Super
intendent of lowa Legislation, and no
doubt Ed Hunter will be the appointee.
That paper also has the following
shots, and they hit the bull’s eye:
“When Bestow takes his seat he will
swing out his lantern and shout, “The
C. B. A Q. will please come to order."
If you get anything through the next
lowa senate you will have to see Ed
Hunter or Charley Fullen.
The railroads are not losing any sleep
about the way Bestow will make up
the committees."
—“Governor Boies says prohibition
defeated the republican party. Mr.
Wheeler attributes his defeat to the
prohibition question, as stated In a re
cent interview. The leading outside
republican journals and a number of
public men of other states claim that
the defeat was due to prohibition. In
the face of such testimony who can
show a more plausible reason for the
disaster TT So says the Marshall Bepub
llcan. It should add one other Item:
The railroad opposition-introduced in
to politiqs when the commission was
made elective. The democrats nomi
nated a railroad man who will stand
for railroad interests first, and he was
elected. It was one of the factors of
power.

Republican from 113 to 610.
A LIE—OF COURSE IT WAS.
At the close of the recent campaign
the state was flooded with a forged
letter, and the particulars are fully set
out in the following expose in the Du
buque Times, coming from its Des
Moines correspondent:
Des Moines, Nov. 9.— The Turney
letter, which was one of the most vil
lainous of the many mean things which
the Democratic managers did during
the last campaign, surely deserves an
investigation, This letter was a for
gery, pure and simple. It was prepared
and offered by a member of the Demo
cratic State Central committee to the
Des Moines Leader for publication.
That paper, to its credit be it said, pro
nounced it a forgery and absolutely re
fused to print it. No amount of eajo
lerly or threats on the part of the com
mittee could induce the Leader to use
it, and then the committee turned the
forgery over to Des Moines correspond
ent of the Chicago Herald, and he im
mediately wired it to the Dubuque
Ledger and other evening Democratic
papers, and they, being devoid of the
Leader’s honesty, published the forgery
and gloated over it. The above state
ments are absolute facts which cannot
be controverted.
The following is the “letter” referred
to by the Times correspondent:
HI BAM 0. WHEELER,
IMPORTED PERCH EBON AND SHIRK
STALLIONS.
S 3 HEAD RECEIVED SEPT. 21.
Odkbolt, lowa, Oct. 23, 1891.
W.O. Turney, Swan, Iowa:
Dear Sir:—Your favor of 2lst was duly re
ceived. I have made no pledges of any Kind
nor to any person that 1 would sign a high
license bill, for that would be In conflict with
my views. Neither have I said that I would
veto a Constabulary Act. On the contrary I
should deem It my duty to approve a law pro
viding for the complete enforcement of the
present law in all the localities of this state,
■hould such a one be passed by the next legis
lature. Very truly yours,
H. C. Wheeler.
The above was sent out bearing the
following endorsement by the Demo
cratic State committee:
Voters, Attention I— a copy of the folios -
lug letter was received by us this morning.
It effectually settles the position whlcb Mr.
Wheeler, if elected, will take on the prohibition
question, and there is no doubt but that It Is
in accord with the views of the W. C. T. U. and
other organizations which are running his cam
paign. Read it carefully before you vote.
Respectfully yours.
Charles D. Fuller,
... Chairman State Dem. Com.
J. X. S severs, Secretary.
Des Moines, lowa, Nov. 1,1891.
There is no such person as“W. L.
Turney” at Swan, lowa, and the letter
was pronounced a forgery by Mr.
Wheeler, in the following telegram:
Odbbolt, Nov. 8,1891.-To 0. L. Root, Lyons:
The Turney letter is a forgery.
H. 0. Wheeler.
Such work as this is disgraceful to
any party, and no party, except the
Democratic dare do ic. But it does not
seem to dart the Democratic party in
the least W hen people join that party
it is with the understanding that it is
privileged to commit anything that
will help democracy.
—Last aamme r we noted an ad. in
the Bloomfield Republican, where a
laundryman, Ben Major, offered to do
up white shirts at 4 cents, collars 1
oent, and cuffs at 2 cents a pair. We
suggested that this meant Republican
gains, and the count of ballots showed
the guess to be very substantial in Its
truth. Soap, clean shirts, and things of
that sort are convincing elements,—for
Harry Evans had to flee from them
to save the converting power of gospel
graoe landing him square in the fold of
the faithful, if not elect, Of oourse
the splendid advocating of the right by
the Republican had something to do
with the great change, but we cannot
forget those 4 cent shirt washings!
PEACE WILL HEIGH
Dr. BeDj. Trueblood, of this city, has
ablv translated a noteworthy editorial
from the Paris Eclair , a leading
French daily, which has Deen printed
in the Des Moines Register, and from
which we make the following extracts:
The error of the specialists, such as
the late held marshal, Von Moltke, and
of his rivals in military glory, is that
they believe that war is necessary to
the human race and that they go to the
trouble of affirming this threadbare
opinion. War is especially useless, since
the history which it produces is not
good history. When the philosophers
of the sabre compare war to a storm
and the equilibriun-restoring effects of
the one to those of the other, if they
think that humanity is subject to the
same laws of equilibnus as nature,they
are mistaken. The interests of human
ity are the opposite to those of nature,
and our incessant labor for civilization
[ oves it. What, in fact, is this civili
ze tion, if not a struggle against the
original condition; let us say further,
the natural condition of man. * * *
If 1 may believe a secret voice which
speakes in the depths of a soul of a mod
ern man such as I am, the times when
people will have no more history (he
means war history) are approaching,
and the necessity of mutually killing
one another in order to live is losing
every day, in our eyes, a little of its
theoretic evidence. Perhaps it is
science which is bringing that about,
but it is above all conscience, and the
glory of Napoleon, to speak only of the
creators of storms, has been singularly
disappearing for a hundred years.
War will come to an end in spite of
tho old German strategist, who in such
a melancholy way in his posthumous
memoirs threatens us with its eternal
duration and leaves to the sons of those
who he slaughters this legacy of sad
ness. It will end, I tell you—unreason
able war, which serves no purpose,
which like an endless chain begets
hatred upon hatred—lt will end,stupid
thing that it is,unless civilization itself
shall stop and we shall turn back all at
once to the savage state. At this price
only can it continue to exist.
Now, Ido not know whether I am
deceived, but the people of the eat h
do not seem to me at the present r o
ment, to be dreaming of returning to
that savage state of which war is the
direct expression, and Ido not at all
see the men of my time asking again
of nature that “noble monkey tail of
which civilization has nearly deprived
them. Edison is not to be represented
as asking again of the great untangler
of chaos the privileges of the preadam
ite period, and our daiuty folk are not
precisely beings who limit their pre
tentions of living on the earth to shoot
ing at dams with a bow and arrow.
War, then, must end—it must,sooner
or later,oh, German mothers 1 For it is
incompatible with civilization, and he
who affirms the one denies the other.
Choice between them is necessary.
I do not know where it will end, nor
how, but I know that people have their
eyes opened since they dared to decapi
tate kings in broad daylight, at two
steps from their old thrones. On the
forehead of tne artisan a wrinkle is
traced, in which I recognize the fold of
free thought, and for nearly a hundred
years the peasant has been scratching
his ear under his hat in a way which 1
wish to point out to the meditations of
sociologists. As to men of culture,
they are greatly bothering the great
man. It is certainly troublesome for
Napoleon to be an object of sport.
That such a soldier should be the ob
ject of jesting song, is a sign of the rad
ical change taking place.
However devoted, furthermore, one
may be to the fatherland and jealous
for pan-Germanism, it is impossible
not to notice, in the days in which we
live, that it is as hard as it is farcical
to see the existence of a hundred mil
lion European families depend upon
the “ear-ache” of an emperor. This ear
trouble, in which Bossuett would find
effects of prophetic eloquence, suggests
significant reflections to the increas
ingly practical philosophy of the labor
ing classes so desirous of peace. They
say to themselves that if a too violent
attack of the imperial malady and a
change of blood in the Hohenzollerns
is sufficient to set all Europe on fire,the
disproportion between the cause and
the effect is entirely too great Kings
must go.
In this way the least informed look
at one another and ask what is this law
of war called providential, and even
what is this providence which promul
gates it. Since 1889 people are thinking
of a lot of things of which they did not
think at all up to that time.
—An enterprising Nebraska man
says that he will take to the World’s
Fair a crowd of 50,000 school children
from Omaha and vicinity. He pro
poses to have each car load in charge
of a teacher and has already begun ne
gotiations with the railroads for spec
ial trains.
Dairymen.— Mr. J. W. Johnson is
home from Waverly where he attended
the annual meeting of the lowa State
Dairy Association. He reports a very
interesting and profitable meeting. Ex-
Governor Hoard, of Wisconsin, and
other prominent men were present.
The following officers were elected for
the coming year: Preeident, O.T.Den-
Ison, Mason Oity; secretary, CJ.L.Gab
rielson, New Hampton; vice president,
P.G. Henderson, Central Olty; treasur
er, S.M. Sibley, Stete Center.
Killkd at Las Vkgas. —“Jack”
King, who played with oar bail dab
three years ago and who made many
friends in this city was shot and mor
tally wounded at Las Vegas, N. M., on
the evening of November 1, by an out
lawed gambler and oowardly assassin.
The trouble originated in a restaur—t,
where John, who was at the time em
ployed as brakeman on the Santa Fe,
had gone to get something to eat.
While waiting for his meal he got into
a dispute with a gambler, who drew a
revolver and fired. Tee ball took effect
in the abdomen and thirteen hours
later death ensued. The Santa Fe com
pany, the officers of whioh regarded de
ceased with the highest esteem, for
warded the remains to the home of his
parents at and kindly fur
nished an escort to accompany them to
their destination.
THAT TALE OF WOE.
The noisy clamor at a recent political
hoodoo was all for the victory of the
saloon—for its re-establishment on
every highway, and for nothing else.
The women who joined in the hoodoo
business were doing j ust the same as
the men folks—“hollering” because of
the same victory under the name of
Democracy, and as they passed the old
man, “winked the other eye” in a vic
torious way.
The saloon is wanted—by this vote
and demand. And what is the saloon
—what does it mean? Why this—and
nothing else.
It means the establishment, open and
in the best places, o! some twenty sta
tions on “The Road to Hell.”
It means to make just that many
more pitfalls for the tripping up of
your sous, your husbands, and the hus
bands of your daughters.
It means j ust that many more chances
for your sons and husbands to fall into
bad ways, and to go to the devil.
There is a tale of woe that goes with
the recall of the saloon. W ith it comes
the midnight brawl, the broken heads,
the hasty word, the stroke of the mur
derer, the clanking of the prison doors
—lives dishonored and disgraced,hearts
broken, homes wrecked!
This tale of woe will come. The
young man will be Ashed for with
tempting bait, and he will be caught as
many another sucker has been caught.
There will be employers robbed that
this devil fish may fatten,but when the
exposure comes there will be a wail of
woe that will not die away like the
screech of that exultant engine the
other night.
The Republicans fought for the
home. The Democrats fought for the
recall of the saloon. Look to it that
your homes, ye exultant ones, do not
furnish a tale of woe as a chorus lo
this home coming of hell’s best friend —
the modern saloon.
The Herald can stand all the jibes
aud railings common to such incidents
in political life, but it suggests that
the trail of the serpjat had better be
be watched for by those who now so
gloriously exult in victory, for the ser
pent certainly will first seek shelter
and warmth among its friends in order
that it may sling them to misery and
death. We hope not—but watch !
In the welcome of that tale of com
ing woe we stand acquitted—thank
God !
New Court House.— Wapello coun
ty at the recent election voted to issue
bonds for #IOO,OOO to build a new court
house. They need it.
The Latest.— At a church festival
at California Junction,low a, the young
ladies were sold at so much per pound
for the benefit of the church. Several
of the young men found their purchas
es loaded with fiat irons. One young
fellow bought a littleigirl who gener
ally weighed about 90 pounds and was
surprised to learn that she weighed 225
pounds, costing him about #5.
Rubber Stamps —The post office de
partment has issued orders that here
after circulars having anything print
ed on them by a rubber stamp will
have to be paid as first-class matter.
The order is based on the principle that
the stamp is nothing more or less than
writing, from the fact that it is used as
a pen and the legends it produces are
as individual as those of the pen.
Arrested. —The Ottumwa Tress
says: Sheriff Mclntire nabbed Albert
Adams yesterday, on a warrant from
Oskaloosa. Adams was found on the
south side, and was taken to Oskaloosa,
aDd turned over to the authorities.
Sometime ago during an entertainment
at the opera house in that city, some
body stole the money drawer, contain
ing cash, from the box office, and it is
charged that Albert Adams is the man.
An Old Timer.— Benj. Morgan, a
resident of lowa since 1836, died at his
home in Richland last wee. His period
of residence in Keokuk county dated
back to within a short time of his re
moval to the state. Mr. Morgan was
one of the best posted men on early
history in this portion of lowa, and
fonnd time to write many interesting
articles on pioneer times. He was in
the sixty-eighth year of his age.
Duoks.—We print the following
item from the Burlington Hawkeye to
make the mouths of our local sports*
man water for game: M Thousands of
ducks were seen flying along the river
yesterday. No doubt the snow storms
of the northwest got them started for
their winter feeding grounds in Arkan
sas and the sunny south. They linger
here for a few days and now is the time
to go after them. On account of the
low water the heat shooting is on the
sand bars and toe-heads along the river.
The drift wood on the bars and willows
on the toe-heads afford ample hiding
places for the sportsmen and with good
flocks of decoys a good bag can be
made.’*
Burglars.— The store at Lacey was
entered by burglars on Wednesday
evening, bat they were scared away be
fore they got any plunder. The pro
prietor, Mr. Hammond, and Dr. Green,
who were in the city during the even
ing, arrived home just as the thieves
were engaged in picking out what they
wanted. The gentlemen made their
presenoe known and the thieves leaped
through a glass in the front window
and flew. Mr. Hammond emptied his
revolver after them but did not check
their flight The thieves had secured
tools at the blacksmiths shop with
which they pried off a screen and rais
ed one of the side windows. They had
two meal sacks filled up with goods
itady to carry off.

THE MAHASKA COUNTY BOBTICULTURAL
FOLKS-THE THIRD ANNUAL MEETING.
The horticultural people of this
county have always contributed very
largely to the comfort, happiness and
prosperity of all the people—aud they
are doing more of it now than ever be
fore. The exhibit in the court room
Wednesday and Thursday was one that
would have done credit to a state So
ciety, so many and varied were they,
and so splendid in form and quality.
Secretary Tice had arranged the sec
tion inside the bar with tables, and
and there was laid out the lots of the
individual exhibitors, and we don’t be
lieve that ever before were there so
many perfect exhibits of varieties made
in this county—rich as previous exhib
its have been.
The following are the names of the
exhibitors, with number of plates and
varieties:

All that is good in apples was shown
aDd some of the newer varieties that
are coming in to conquer their way
into the hearts—by way of the stom
achs—of the people.
The discussions on the many prac
tical topics of the program were of the
greatest profit to all present The men
who talk at these meetings strike a
practical pace at once, and trot out to
the end in an even way. And the after
talks are probably the best of ail—for
as the speaker goes along the others are
formulating their mental clubs and
brick bats, which are hurled with a
deftness that hits every time.
NOTES.
Yal Brubaker had an apple on ex
hibition-coming from last year’s crop
—evidently a keeper that would have
suited Noah.
W. A. Bryan shows the red cedar,
spruce, and Austrian pine. He uses
the red cedar for a wind break,and has
a four acre patch that is simply a lovely
Bpot. Bryan is one of the men who
thinks much and works out bis
thoughts.
As a sweet remembrance of the old
homestead in Ohio, D. W.Loring shows
a Rome Beauty, and if we could raise
them here, what a boon it would be.
J. E. Ogborn,aside from having a dis
play of first class a cabbage
that is all solid—and also some Keifer
pears.
Dr. Lindley showed a blackberry
stem which measured 14 feet in length
It had been staked up, and permitted
to hump itself.
The Kemble Floral Company showed
some very fine chrysanthemums and
pinks—with cut roses to make the table
take on color.
Splendid vegetables of all kinds were
shown, together with some enormous
growths. A double pumpkin of the
Yankee sort suggested several things.
The condition of the orchards was
reported as very promising, and the
crop of much excellence.

Few Turkeys.— Poultry is scarce
this year and if you expect to celebrate
Thanksgiving with the time-honored
turkey dinner you had better order
your bird now. The farmers and deal
ers in such goods say that there is going
to be about one good turkey to every
14 families at Thanksgiving time. The
last spring was cold and wet and un
kind and the turkey chicks died or
were stunted in their developement.
They are late; they are behind the time.

TURNER.—Died,at her home in North Sand
wich New Haven, Friday, October 30,1801, of
consumption, Mrs. Cornelius Turner.
Deceased was a daughter of Amos V. Hurd, a
former brick-maker of this city, and left Oska
locsa In 1880. She was married to Mr.Tun;''* In
1889. The Sandwich Reporter/says in speaking
of her death :“She leaves a companion to whom
she had been united but a few years to mourn
her departure. In his bereavement he has the
sympathy of all who have ever known him and
has also the consolation of knowing his loss to
be gain to the one who has gone. In the death
of Mrs. Turner not only does a home lose Its
brightest adornment, but tho church and neigh
borhood one of Its most faithful members. Pos
sessed of a meek and quiet spirit she readily
won a place in the hearts of all her acquaint
ances and will not soon be forgotten.”
ELDER.— Died.at hlsbonie near Indianapolis,
lowa, October 25.1891, of spinal disease, Henry
S. Elder, aged 59 years, lo months and 22 days.

Lived in Ogle county, ill., nine years and came
to Mahaska county in 1867. and has lived in this
vicinity 24 years. lie was the father of seven
children, live of whom, with their mother, sur
vive him. He was a member of the Baptist
cburch and of good repute among the brethren.
He was a well informed man, a good citizen, of
good business habits, and leaves his family In
comfortable circumstances. He was a great
sufferer for nearly four weeks prior to his dqt a,
but assured his friends that aU was well with
him as to the future, and he was ready and will
ing and waiting to die. Thus the “King of Ter
rors”was to him the*'Prluce of Peace.” Funeral
services were held at the Christian churqfi Oct.
16, conducted by Rev. John Potter, pastor of M.
E. church,and was largely attended. From tbe
text, “Come unto Me all ye that labor and are
heavy laden and I will give you rest,” he
preached a very able sermon, affording great
consolation to tbe mourning friends,
THs meet that we should weep when friends
have passed
Away. “But ’tls appointed unto all
Men once to die,” and they who first go to
Their final rest, go only a few days—
A very few—before the friends they leave
Behind. Hence none should spend the fleeting
Years in vain regret.
The warp of life—we know—
Is sorrow, pain and tears. But happy they.
Who, with a cbeerful heart, can gather up
The broken threads and weave into its woof,
Sunshine and smiles and peace. Thrice blest
are they !
Not only do they hallow their own lives,
But blessings shed on all who walk with them.
And honor God. Minnehaha,,. - -
