That Canning Factory. —The women of the county are aroused on the importance of the early establish ment of a canning factory here, and there is reason to believe that with the proper encouragement from the citi zens generally such an enterprise can be started and in operation by the be ginning of the next season.

A., at the rooms on Wednesday evening was a very pleas ant occasion.

Night Switchman Smith of the lowa Central Ron Over and Killed. O. D. Smith, who had charge of the night crew in the lowa Central rail* railroad yards at this station, was knocked down and run over by the cars at 1:40 o’clock Wednesday was instantly killed. The accident happened near the gas works, where the freight house switch joins the main line. The yard engine and four cars were backing up and Smith stepped in to make a coupling. He signalled with his lantern to slacken up, and that was the last that was seen of him, until he was picked up a corpse. The other men at work with him saw his lamp go out suddenly, and fearing something had happened rushed to the place at once. He never spoke and breathed but once or twice after they found him. His head and chest were lying on the inside of the rail and the lower part of his body and legs on the outside. His body was entirely crushed and all the vitals severed in the abdomen, just be low the stomach, but from some un accountable cause the skin was not broken and only a few drops of blood oozed out. One of his arms was also crushed at the elbow. The remains were picked up at once and cared for by his fellow workmen, and later were taken to the McCurdy undertaking rooms. Smith was a comparative stranger in this city, having been at work only two weeks. He was a particular friend of Supt.Redmon.and an old time railroad man. He was about 35 years old and unmarried. His father, £. G. Smith, lives in Portland, Oregon, and the re mains will likely be embalmed and sent there. He has a brother living in St. .Louis who is master mechanic of the St. Louis Bridge Works. Gus Anderson was the engineer and the other switchmen are Mr. Woodwin and Mr. Hahn. They pronounced Smith an agreeable man to work for and a good fellow all around. The coroner’s inquest was held in McOurdy’s store this Wednesday after noon and their verdict was in accord ance with the above facts.

The occasion served to awaken inter est in the movement, which was its ob ject, and hence was successful. The ladies, for the clubs here are wholly formed of ladies, have shown a com mendable zeal in this work of promot ing intelligence and extending literary knowledge, and the effect of their In fluence on the social life of the city has been marked. Too much attention can not be directed to such efforts, and it was well for them to specifically ad dress themselves to the public in the intelligent way they did on this occa sion.

Whst tk« MiiKMte State Authori ties Wmr About Tkui> If there is any doubt in anybody’s mind as to the quality of the various baking powders of the market, it will be settled by the evidence given upon the subject by the State officials of Min nesota. The Dairy and Food Commis sion and the State Chemist are the highest official authorities upon such subjects in this state,and their evidence will be accepted as disinterested and unprejudiced. It is their business to examine the quality of the different food products, and to suppress the sale of those found impure and unwhole some, and ail will admit that they have performed their duties without fear or favor. At a recent examination by a Legis lative Committee to determine the qualities of the various baking powders sold in Minnesota, State Chemist and analyst to the Food and Dairy Com missioner, Dr. Charles W.Drew gave the following evidence: Ques.—Dr. Drew, I see by the report of the Dairy and Food Commission of this State that in making analysis of the various baking powders of this country you report as a result of your work that the Boyal Baking Powder contains and gives off in baking a great er per cent, of carbonic acid gas (leav ening gas) than any other baking pow der made; Is that true? Ans.—Yes, sir, that is a fact Ques.—Doctor, you also found from experiment that the Boyal Baking Powder will keep longer and retain Its qualities better than any other powder made, did you not? Ans.—Yes, sir. I think it does. Ques.—How, the two most desirable qualities in baking powder are the amount of carbonic acid gas it contains and gives off and the length of time it will keep, are they not ? Ans.—Yes, sir. Ques.—Then the Royal Baking Pow der, possessing these qualities, is the beet powder made, is it not ? Ans.—Well, that would be the natur al conclusion. Ques.—Well, that is the fact, Is it not? Ans. —Yes, I think it is. I consider it one of the best baking powders made. A man who has practiced medicine for 40 years, ought to know salt from sugar; read what he says: Toledo, Ohio, January 10, 1887. Messrs. F. J. Cheney & Co.—Gentlemen:—l have been in the general practice of medicine for most 40 years, and would say that in all my practice and experience have never seen a preparation that I could prescribe with as much confidence of success as I can Hall’s Catarrh Cure, manufactured by ;rou. Have prescribed it a great many Himes and its effect is wonderful, and I would say in conclusion that 1 have yet to find a case of catarrh that it would not cure, if they would take it according to directions. Yours truly, L. L. Gorsuch, M. D., office 215 Summit St. We will give 8100 for any case of Catarrh that cannot be cured with Hall’s Catarrh Cure. Taken internally. F. J.

The Tramp Trust.— The jail was filled on Saturday and Sunday with 21 tramps, and this Monday morning these 21 tramps were arraigned before Jus tice Smith, on information signed by J. M. Timbrel, charging all with the crime of common begging. They plead guilty, and were given three days in jail by the justice. The expense at tendant on each case will be as follows: Justice fees 8 1.00 Sheriff fees 2.90 Three days support 75 Each case. Twenty-one cases $97.65 This expense is put upon the county, and it can largely be saved, for the city stands ready to take charge and care of the tramping dead beats that fill the jail. The city proposes to care for all these vagabonds—with hard labor, with ball and chain, and to make Jordan a blamed hard road for them to travel while here. Nearly one hundred dollars blown in on these pests on the first round is a matter that concerns every tax payer, and an end must be put to it. And it will be.
