Through His Hat.— Homer A. Mil
ler, state t»ank examiner tells the Fort
Dodge Messenger that so far as lowa
is concerned the tight money market is
caused purely by sentiment. There
never was more money in lowa than
there is to day, and with present crop
prospects the state is as solid as a rock.
Money is tight simply because jteople
are saying so. As soon as confidence is
restored in the cities where it has been
unsettled, and the sensational head
lines disappear from the newspapers,
the banks or lowa can loan all of the
money the state has any need for.

Spoken Faiklv.—J. B. Mcf'urdy,
wbo ha* been attending the lowa Fur-,
niture Dealers’ association at Des
Moines during the week, and who was
houored by election to the presidency
of the association, was interviewed by
the < 'apital of that city, and with this
yeeult: “J. B. McCurdy of Oskaloosa is
the state organise! of the new associa
tion. He has beeu in the furniture and
undertaking business at Oskaloosa for
a quarter of a century. He is a close
observer of affairs and a good talker,
fn reply to the reporter's questions be
said in substance: Oskaloosa is a live
town; it always was a live town, but
it is more than commonly so this year.
Iff course, yoq know Oskaloosa has no
through line of railroads, and that has
always worked to its disadvantage,
but it has kept right on growing and
our citizens think it is one of the cities
of lowa that does credit to the state.
There has never beeu a year in its his
tory when there was mere going on in
the way of private and public improve
menu than the present year. We are
putting down a large amount of street
paving and are doing it with brick.
There is a lane number of dwelling
houses in process of construction.
Business is generally fairly good. I can
see no difference between this year and
former years. If there is any business
difficulty anywhere, as we see from the
newspapers these is, it has not been
felt in Oakaloosa, and the people of our
town era not alarmed about anything
and have no reason to be, but are going
right along quietly and prospering^."

Fatal Shot.— Pit Boss Lloyd, at the
Kebs mine, was shot and killed, Tues
day evening, by a married woman from
Iliteman. The full particulars have
not been learned, but it appears that
accompanied by her husband the wom
an went to Kebs to settle a difficulty
she had had with Lloyd. They went to
the house where he was, and the hus
band called him out, when the wife
tired the revolver, evidently prepared
for the work, with fatal effect.

Let Them Romp. —‘Don’t shut up
your house lest the sun should fade
your carpets, nor your heart lest a
merry laugh should shake down some
of the musty old cobwebs there. If you
want to ruin your sons, let them think
that all mirth and social enjoyment
must be left on the threshold without
when they come home. Once a home re
garded as only a place to eat, drink and
sleep in, the work is begun that ends in
disappointment. Young folks must
have fun and relaxation somewhere. If
they don t find it at their own hearth
stone, it will be sought at other less
profitable places. Therefore let the fire
burn brightly at night, and make the
homestead delightful with all these little
arts that parents so perfectly under

Sun Spots.— Prof. Holden, of the Lick
Observatory. says that there is a veiy
large aud interesting group of spots on
the suu visible just now, which any
body can see with the naked eye, with
the help of a hit of smoked glass. This
large group of spots has been attracting
the attention of the astronomers for
some days. Several of them think that
it is the large spot of a year a o broken
up, hut most, of them hold that they are
due to some new and extraordinaiy con
vulsion on the sun's surface. Sun spots
h tve never before appeared so suddenly
or on so large a scale. Nothing was
seen of them when the sun was under
close observation recently, during the
total eclipse, hut the corona,as observed
by Prof Schaeberle in South America,
showed by the play of its rose colored
(lames, it is said, that the sun s atmos
phere was undergoing extraordinary
changes, ami that tremendous convul
sions of some sin t were in progress.

Cortland, (Me ) Voting Yen's Christian

curious to know what method of ad

had circulated several thousand little
dodgers giving notice of the meeting,

them and been moved to come by that
mean .to rise. The hall was packed
with iKx>ple, and of the entire number
only fifteen arose. Then Mr. McDon

notices in the newspapers, and the vast
majority of the audience stood upon its
All But Us.—Oskaloosa people will
have to spend the 4th with neighboring
friends. All around us are to he great
celebrations in keeping with the Co
lumbian Fourth, and this city has been
levied upon heavily forspeaking timber
and has easily been able to f«*ot the bill.
Nothing is on foot for Oskaloosa, and
the people who stay at home to take
care of things will have a quiet day.
As already announced, Major Lacey is
the orator of the day at Fremont; J. I).
Guthrie at Bose Hill; Cres Atwater at
Beacon; Liston McMilleu at Martins

To Fair Goers. — The traffic to the
World's Fair for the i*ast three weeks
has been very large, hut reports indi
cate that many who might go now, are
needlessly postponing the trp, forget

limited. Unless some who say, “We’ll
go in August or September,” can he in
duced to go now while they can he car

discomforts and delays usual under
such circumstances, and perhaps many
will he unable to get there at all, for
lack of transportation facilities. Per
sons who might make the trp now
should do so; it is important to the rail
roads, to them, and to their neighbors
whocannot go until later. The railroads
have Hlicieutly transported all passen
gers, hut they will he unable to carry ail

A Correction. —Saturday’s Ottum
wa Press contained an article concern
ing the Seevers Manufacturing Co., of
lliis city, in which was said: “It is now
fully decided to remove the Seevers
Manufacturing Works that were prac
ti<-ally built up here and have flourish
ed in < iskaloosa for years past, to Cres
ton, and Mr. Thos. Seevers went to Chi
cago last evening to make arrangements
with the C. H. & Q. company for trans
portation of the machinery and effects.
This factory employs about 45 men,
builds bridges as a specialty, though
several revolving swiugs have been
turned out lately,and found ready sale.
C'reston, it is understood, gives Mr.
Seevers fifteen acres of land, and a
bonus of over 85,000 to move his plant
to that city, and he has agreed to move
there sometime this summer.” This
company will not remove from this
city nor has such a plan been consider
ed. iu an interview Mr. Seevers said
to a Herald reporter; “For a number
of years we have been doing a great
deal of work In the neighborhood of
Creston, and the business association of
that city has been asking me for a long
time to start a branch shop there. They
asked me to make a proposition which
I did. The terms were fifteen acres of
ground and 88,000. A letter recently
received from the city states that the
ground has been practically secured
and a great part of the bonus. As to
the establishment of the branch busi
ness no definite steps have been taken.
A committee of Creaton gentlemen paid
us a visit to see what we were manu
facturing and what we could manu
facture In case of the establishment.
Creaton is a town with very few estab
lishments and they are after more.
Our plant was not the only establish
mentin this city which was visited by
the Creaton committee.” It appears
tyt the Creaton people are after some
big manufacturing plant and have
raised this inducement to any company

Press Seance.— Dr. C. 11. G. Stam
ford was at home Wednesday afternoon
in a special entertainment to represent
atives of the city press and a fevr
friends. Prof. I*. 11. McEwen, who is
an expert in magic and the black art,
entertained the guests by some marvel
ous slight of hand tricks, following
which Dr. Stamford gave an exhibition
of his mesmeric powers, w'hich are cer
tainly beyond the ordinary. The doc
tor represents an electrical healing
company, and also gives instruction in
hypnotism. Dan Davis, who is a stu
dent under the gentleman, gave an ex
hibition of his influence over a captive
will. Prof. McEwen, the doctor’s com
panion, is an artist in his line, and a
gentleman with whom it is a pleasure
to talk, a native of Scotland. He has
been practicing magic since he was
seven years old, and has great profi
ciency. Their evening entertainments
are attracting large audiences.
Many Trunks.— Mattison A Son,
the South Side harness men, have just
received a car load of trunks. They
are wonderfully cheap. See them.
Ills Honor, Mayor G. B. McFall has
just purchased through Hawkins &
Garretson Co. agents at this place, a
new Upright Grand Mehlin piano, one
of the tinest instruments ever brought
to this city and the lirstof the kind ever
sold here. It contains the same plate
and scale used in the three cornered
Brands giving it all the volume aud
sweetness of tone for which they are
noted,without occupying the room ofa
common sized parlor. The above tirm
feel justly elated in being able to furn
ish our good jieople with such high
grade instruments at prices that can
not l»e bettered in any of the large
cities. It was a question with Jhem,
when branching out this year on a large
scale with as good a music store as
could he found in the state, whether or
no it would he appreciated and patron
ized Butliciently to pay; hut the selling
of four line pianos within the past
mouth with a tine trade in organs and
other goods should covince them that
they struck the key note of success.

They Will Come.— Those who have
been postponing their trip to Chicago
on account of the exi>ected lowering of
passenger rates inay he disappointed
till after August 1. There is an almost
absolute certainty that the current rates
will rein-in in force up to that date.
The Western Passenger association has
the strongest iron clad agreement ever
drawn up by a passenger association,
which is to remain in force to August
I. It would he ruinous for any of the
western roads to break this agreement.
A curious fact came to light in this de
mand for lower rates, and that is a pro
test by the retail dealers of lowa against
the lowering of the rates. They fear
that thousands of dollars would he spent
in Chicago that ought to bespent in the
retail stores in lowa, that their custom
ers would be harder to please upon their
return and would not he satisfied with
the stock from which to select goods iu
the future, that it would materially aid
the driving away of a great deal of
trade. After August 1, look out for
low rates, and then for the crowds.

How It Was Done.—A few days
ago a private hank at Fairfield, man
aged by Wells & Garretson, suspended
payment, promising to resume. Their
suspension provoked no runs on the
other banks and we shall h t the Ledger
tell the remainder of the story as follows:
“Messrs. Wells & Garretson have kept
faith wit h their depositors, with all their
creditors. Wednesday their doors were
opened for transaction of business, and
they have paid over their counters every
claim of whatever nature, dollar for
(hollar. They will continue so to do
until the last farthing of their obliga
tions is discharged, and then they will
close their hooks and retire from busi
ness in the usual way, without loss to
one of their patrons and with credit to
themselves. There has been no renewal
of public coutidence in Fairfield and
Jefferson county—it was never dis
turbed, never shaken. Those wise, pru
dent and conservative business meth
ods which have put Jefferson county's
credit just a little higher than that of
her sisters, and have given her a repu
tation just a little better than that of
any county in lowa, have stood her in
good stead again.”

The Normal Institute Opens Sfon-
day Morning—Large Attend-
The Mahaska County Normal opened

Rogers presiding, and all classes well
filled. The instructors are the best and
the work doi e will be of the highest
possible grade. A number of new feat
ures will be introduced during the ses

the most interesting and profitable ever
held in the history of the county.
Among the entertainments will be the
alumni entertainment and a concert by
the Fritz orchestra.
The instructors for this year are:
Supt. Wm. Wilcox, of Mason City; Supt.
ti. W. Sampson, of Atlantic; Prof. W.

A number of old settlers and other
citizens went to Penn chapel Tuesday
morning to hear Mrs. T. G. Phillips ad
dress the normal on “Mahaska County's
First School.” Mrs. Phillips was the
first teacher in the county, and this
school was in what is now Spring Creek
township east of the city. The educa
tional appliances were most crude and
the difficulties many, but the courage
and ability and great good nature ot
the teacher triumphed over them all,
and made of that primitive school a
w'Orthy and useful institution from
which came inspiration and strength to
many. Mrs. Phillips’ address was rem
iniscent and historic, and was listened
to with keen and enjoyable interest
The enrollment increases and great
interest is shown in all classes.
Tuesday afternoon Mary A. Blood,
of Chicago, discussed the topic “Help
fulness a Duty.”
Wednesday morning 284 teachers had
enrolled for normal work, and though
the attendance is less than last year the
interest was never more lively and
earnest. At chapel Bev J. M. Baugh
spoke briefly, applauding and encour
aging the teachers in the various lines
embraced by them. Wm. Wilcox read
the “round table" discussions of Wed

A Happy Sort of Letter.
We take pleasure in placing the fol

Lay’s unsolicited letter:
Wheatland. Cal., June 19, 1893.
Dear Friend Jones:— Just six years
ago I bought from you a top buggy,
warranted and guaranteed to be made
ot the best material. During this time
I have gone west, and am now in the
state of California. Wherever I have
gone my buggy has gone with me.
From lowa to Washington, then to
Oregon and now in California. 1 rode
over the hills of Eastern W ashington
as county evangelist, of Garfield county
for six long months; over the Willam
ette Valley in Oregon for thirteen yeara,
and the rest of my time here. I want
to say in all of this time, that for re
pairs on my buggy 1 have paid out just
twenty cents. I have had it painted
once and to day as I will hitch my team
to it to go off in the work in which I
am engaged 1 would not part with it
for any new eastern buggy that comes
to this coast.
It spectfully, 11. W. Lay,
