Circulation Nearly Three Thousand. At Two Dollars Per Annum ALBERT W. SWALM, Editor and Proprietor. OS K. A LOOS A - * * IOWA: THK WAY WE WALKED. I met a woman on life's way, A woman fair to see, Or caught up with her. I should say. Or she caught up with me. “The way is long when one's alone,’’ I said, “and dangerous, too; I'll help you by each stumbling stone If I may walh with you.’’ 1 saw her hang her head and blush, And I eould plainly see The fire that caused the feverish flush. I whispered: “Walk with me. Thou art of all the very maid A brave heart wants to woo. And I'll remember long,” I said. “The way I walk with you.” Then on we went. Her laughiug eyes And sunny smiles were sweet. Above us blue and burnished skies. And roses 'ncath our feet. “I’m glad your sunny face I’ve seen," I said, “When life is through. I'll own the best of it has been The way I walked with you." And on fte went. We watched the day Into tbe darkness merge; My fair companion paused to say, “Here’s where our paths diverge.’’ I answered ; “Yes and one more mile Is fading from our view. And all the while lit by your smile The way I’ve walked with yon. “I do not say, my love, my life Will all be given to grief When you are gone; the ceaseless strife Will'bring me much relief. When death's cold hand the curtain draws, When life's long journey’s through. ’Twill not have all been bad. because 1 came part way with you.” —Cy Warman in New York Sun. FOR THE NATIONAL FLOWER. THE CLOVBB. Some sing of tbe lily, and daisy, and rose, And tbe pansies and pinks that the sum mer-time throws In tbe green, grassy lap of tbe medder that lays Blinkin’ up at the skies through the sun shiny days. But what is the lily, and all of the rest Of the flowers, to a man with a heart in his breast That was dipped brimmin' full with the honey and dew Of the sweet clover blossoms bis babyhood knew? I never set eves on a elover Held now, Er fool ’round a stable, er climb in a mow, But inv childhood comes back jest as clear and as plain As the smell of the clover I'm sniffin' again ; And I wander a way in a bare-footed dream, Whar I tangle my toes in the blossoms that gleam With the dew of the dawn of the morning of love Ere it wept o'er the graves that I'm weep in' above. And so I love clover; it seems like a part Of the sacrcdest sorrows and joys of my heart; And wharever it blossoms, O, there let me bow And thank the good God as I'm thankin' him now! And I pray to him still for the stren’th, when I die. To go out in the clover and tell it good-by, And lovin'ly nestle my face in its bloom While iny soul slips away on a breath of perfume. —James Whitcomb Riley. —Secretary Carlisle did not buy any July silver, and probably will not. He has that right under the law. —We are out on the ocean sailing, but whether we are homeward bound or just drifting remains to be seen in August, when the Congressional crew takes hold of the oars. —There never was a currency issued by any authority, save national, but that was more or less a great fraud and theft on the people—and was so intend ed to be. Head the history of the state bank swindles of the past. —The worse comment on southern prison management is found in the fact ttiat the United States will permit no persons convicted and sent to penal servitude to be confined in any prison in the south. That tells one chapter of the story of civilization. —James B. Weaver has thought more on the financial question than all the Democratic leaders of lowa put into one heap. Attend one of these state conventions and in the popping of corks hear them spout about the finances in a Dahomey like way! —Thefailures for the first Bix months of the present year number 45,401, as against 5,503 during the same period in 1892, Bhuwing an increase of 898. The total liabilities of ail the failures which occurred in the first six months of 1893, are #168,000,000, while for the same period in 1892, they were #62,000,000, showing an increase of #106,000,000. —Like the sniff of air from snow clad nffluntalns comes the Chariton Democrat, strong in lusty Democracy of the sort that even a Republican can not help but respect and pity!—pity be cause its tlavor will be lost on the gang for whom it is blowing so bree/.ily and so sensibly! Senator Allison expresses the op inion that the actiou of India em phasizes the necessity for an inter national agreement, and that the United States alone can not maintain free coin age. He thiuks it is clear, in view of this new phase, that this government should cease purchasing silver; that the Brussells conference should be recon vened, and that we should have a com prehensive policy of our own in case it shall appear impossible for the leading nations to reach a common agreement on the subject. —The western silver mines are all closing down, and within one month 90 per cent will be idle- the drop in the market price of silver being the cause. The owners cannot afford to pay $3 per day for mine labor, and produce silver at tW cents for the line ounce, so they close down, and let labor drift. It is either that or bankruptcy for the own ers and they prefer to escape that. It will cause very hard times in the west ern camps, but what can be done to avoid it ? When corn proves to be a great, overwhelming crop, the price de clines, and the farmer can lake that price or let it alone, and the silver pro ducer is simply a “cropper” in another direction, and he can do as the farmer is compelled to—take the price of the market, or let it alone. And legislation will not any more put real value into silver permanently thau it will into com. It is an unfortunate condition of things tliat confronts the western mine owner—but the same condition has fre queutly'con fronted the western grain Eower, and he has bravely home the ttle between supply and demand. The bullion owners must do the same. Ciiiioi, The nigh School luw been changed from the old building over to »ite new Whittier building.

DAYTON. hatch o t the Newly-Made Postmaster of Charles Willoughby Dayton was born In New York city on October 8, 1846, and was educated In the New York public schools. His grandfather was born in Stratford, Conn., and came to the city of New York to engage in Commercial enterprises. Mr. Dayton’s father, Abraham Child Dayton, was educated in Europe, aud was a man of literary tastes aud a contributor to the periodicals of the day. Mr. Dayton studied law, and after graduation from Columbia college law school in 1808 was admitted to prac tice at the bar. He has an office at No. 8 Broad street, and has for over twenty years lived in Harlem. Mr. Dayton has been active in politics for fifteen years, and during most of that time has taken an active part as an anti-Tammany democrat. He was IOWA: prominent in the campaign of 1880 and 1884, when William R. (trace was suc cessful in his contests for mayor, and has been regarded as one of the cx mayor's most ardent friends. He was a member of the legislature of 1881, and was a candidate for United States district attorney when Cleveland be came president in 1885. He did not re ceive the appointment, but when Mayor Grace constituted his excise board a year later Mr. Dayton was selected for counsel to the board and held this office for three years. He was con spicuous in all the battles of the county democracy, and when the People’s Municipal league was organized in 1890 he was one of the inner circles of trusted advisers. He supported Francis M. Scott and the fusion city ticket that year and made many speeches against Tammany hall. In 1891, with many other county democrats of the Twenty third district, to which he belonged, he joined the wigwam. In the Feb ruary "snap convention” held at Al bany to declare the choice of the New York democracy.for president and to elect delegates to the national demo cratic convention, Mr. Dayton repre sented the Twentj’-third assembly district as a Tammany man. When the big committees were formed Mr. Dayton was placed at the head of the committee on permanent organization. He lifted up his voice with the rest of the snappers for Hill's nomination for president. His first official appointment under Tammany hall was made last year, when Mayor Grant selected him as a member of the Park avenue commis sion for supervising the building of the railroad viaduct. The Moat Versatile of Any Crowned Woman of Kurope. The golden rose of virtue conferred by the pope will this year go to Marie Henriette, queen of the Belgians. The fact that the lady has had to wait so many years for this consecrated token should not be regarded as in any way a reflection upon her worthiness to wear it. It is only that there are so many ladies of rank in Europe to whom the golden rose of virtue be longs by right, that the queen of the Belgians has been forced to wait. The queen of the Belgians is, perhaps, the most versatile in her talents of any crowned woman of Europe. She is an adept at the piano, violin, harp and a number of minor musical instruments; is a horsewoman of the greatest skill and daring, and, strangely enough, in legerdemain she has a facility unsur- MAIt IB HENRIETTE, QUEEN OF THE BELr passed by the most famous of profes sional sleight of hand performers.

Although Built at Great Expense and With Remarkable Caro tho Valkyrie Beat Her Easily The Yachts Compared. It rather looks as if the prince of Wales’ yacht will not do. Dunraven’s Valkyrie is certainly her superior, and the Valkyrie is not allowed by the critics to have any too good an Ameri ca's cup chance. The Britannia’s appearance under canvas was rather imposing, her bold fore body suggesting considerable power, while her long after end gave quite a graceful appearance to the hulL She floats to submerge about four feet of her counter, which fact accounts for the supposition that she was the shorter load water-line boat. Both her main boom and her load line arc eighteen inches to two feet in excess of the Valkyrie, and the Fairlie de signed boat will come in between them, but on account of her smaller sail plan will rate lower down a bit and have an allowance. A Scottish critic 6ays of the new yachts: “The Valkyrie without doubt is the most out and out thoroughbred racing craft of the new Scotch crea tions. I cannot say that I fancy it for appearance as much as I do the Cal luna, but, taking it all in all, it is the vessel of the three which strikes one of that combination of power, speed and rakishness which suggests the suc cessful racing cutter. It has a flnely drawn-out forebody, terminating in an overhang which looks like a cross be tween the Calluna and the Britannia. It has a lower side than the latter, and especially abaft the mast its freeboard gets beautifully less and terminates in a counter where there will be no more weight carried than is necessary for getting an after overhaul sufficient for immersion. It is not sawed off, of course, but the counter is near the water and is a nice study, a sort of V-shaped stern. “Fair on, and looking at the Valkyrie from aft, she is at once recognizable as the narrowest and deepest of the three boats. She is more in accord with her PRINCE OF WALEB’ CUTTER BRITANNIA. own type of boat than the other two, and in consequence, to the eye, seems more in touch with what we have hith erto recognized as the proper sort of thing. Popular public opinion, how ever, still favors the Fairlie boat. “I must, however, state that in the Valkyrie America has a good boat, a clever skipper and a strong combina tion to meet. It was thought on this side that the Valkyrie would hold back in the initial races, but both Capt. Cranfield and those in authority have assured me that their desire is to try hard edge right off with the other boats on the Thames, and this accounts for his towing all the way to the south. “Like the Britannia, the Valkyrie has her head 6ails set in the ordinary Scotch fashion, without any American ism in the way of standing sharp so far as the jib is concerned. The forestay of both vessels leads down to about the bitts, and a good deal of boat protrudes it. Unlike the Britannia, the Val kyrie, on account of her smaller beam, has channels, which supply the neces sary spread for the shrouds, and these latter are of the skeleton order. The main shrouds are the same in both boats.” The Thirteen Saperstltton. It is said this strange superstition extends away back to the time of King Arthur. When the good British king founded the famous Round Table he requested Merlin, the enchanter, to ar range the seats. Merlin arranged one set of seats to represent the apostles; twelve were for the faithful adherents of Jesus Christ and the thirteenth for the traitor Judas. The first were never occupied save by the knights dis tinguished for their achievements, and when a death occurred among them the scat remained vacant until a knight surpassing him in heroic and warlike attainments should be consid ered worthy to fill the place. If an unworthy knight sought the vacant chair he was repelled by some magic power. The thirteenth seat was never occupied but once. The story goes that a haughty aud insolent Saracen knight sat down upon it and was immediately swallowed up by the earth. Ever af ter it was known as the “perilous seat," and, brave as the celebrated knights of the Round Table are said to have been, not one ever had the courage to sit on the thirteenth chair, and the superstition against it still survives. A Kentucky Girl’s Idenl. Here is a Kentucky girl’s picture of the Ideal man who would make a good hus band: “If I wished to marry—which of course I do not—l would desire a man too noble to commit a mean act, but generous enough to forgive one. A man as gentle as a woman, as man ly as a man; one who does not talk scandal nor tell disagreeable truths; a man whose name I would be proud to bear, to whom I would carry my doubts and perplexities, and with whom I would find sympathy and joy.” Missionaries Killed In Chinn.

FIRST MURDER AND THEN SUICIDE! ALEXANDER CAREY KILLED HIS WIFE MARY AND THEN HIMSELF ! The Affray Occurred Sunday Noon at Their Home in Carbonado! One of the most ill recompenses for a life of toil, honesty and industry that could overtake a mortal fell to the lot of Mary Gore Carey, on Sunday, near noon, at the home of the family, in Car bonado, wherein she was shot down by her husband, Alexander Carey, and dying almost instantly—being followed by the self-destruction of Carey at once. The particulars aud causes of the crime are as follows: THE SHOOTING. The shooting took place at 11:45 Sun day forenoon, at their cottage home in Carbonado. The neighbors were alarm ed by the rapid discharge of three re volver shots, and by Mrs. Carey rush ing out of the house and dropping to the earth. She was followed by Carey, who shot himself, and fell on the south side of the house. Mrs. Carey was hit three times: one through the right hand, as if she had raised it in defense against the leaden hail; one through the body above the hips, and the third through the left breast near the nipple into the heart. Carey lired two shots into his body, involving the heart also —and when the neighbors got on the ground his clothes were burning from the pistol lire. THE CRIME was one of great deliberation and prep aration. This was discovered on search ing the body of Carey, where several letters were found setting forth his reasons for the act, murder and suicide. One letter was to Superintendent Kam say, one to I)r. Parry, one to J.C.Smith, and one to the “citizens of Carbonado,” They had been written J une 28, and gave directions in a general way as to what should be done “after the ball" had done in deadly work. THE CAUSE. Coroner liacon was early summoned, aud with Sheriff Timbrel, as officer,and Messrs. F. D. Boyer, G. B. McFall, and Janies Atchison as jurors, an examina tion was made of two or three witness es, and the letters read, which clearly made it a case of murder and suicide, and the verdict so said. The cause of the trouble that led to this horrible affair seemed to be about some money. Mrs. Carey was the widow of Samuel Gore, and married Carey about twelve years ago. Mrs. Carey had two sons, John and Sam, and she kept boraders. The boys were hard workers and in old Excelsior days they made much. It seems that Carey became the head of the house, and took charge of the sav ings—and on them, it is said, he travel led a good deal. There was some prop erty sold at Astoria, Ills., the avails of which, #7OO, came to Mrs. Carey, it be ing her own. Carey his all along de manded that he should wholly control it, and as a compromise it was deposit ed in the Oskaloosa National Bank,but subject only to joint action as to with drawal, and not subject to check. This has been the cause of much trouble, and Carey left home about it, and went over to Mystic and worked awhile. Mrs. Carey continued in the cottage, kept boaiders, aud worked industrious ly all the time. The letters spoke of jealousy against one of the boarders, and seemed to be imbued with that idea to a bitter extent. All the neighbors give Mrs. Carey a character for all that was womanly and in the highest degree Mattering- and deny the slanders of her murderer as utterly untrue. “The money” is mentioned several times,and his failure to control the same, with a choice disposition to find fault, suspic ion, and demean—led to tin m iking up of the mind that the killing of the wom an would alone satisfy, and that he would end it by sending his soul into perdition to do it. And so it was that Mary Carey was murdered by the hand of the man who should only ever have raised it in protection. In the search there were found'collat erals for #Boo—the #IOO being in a draft from a Mystic bank. Mrs. Carey's son Samuel, married, living at Pekay, was summoned and took charge of affairs, aided by that hearty comradeship that marks the men and the women, and who, on Monday, gave sepulchre to the dead of this sad dest of domestic tragedies that clouded and destroyed homes in this section.

From experience in negotiating loans, 1 am satisfied that this money can all be loaned on excel lent real estate security, at seven per cent, semi-annual interest, free of ex pense to the lender.

James was born in Green county, Pa., emigrated with his family to Io k a and settled on a farm. Seven years ago he married Mary Garner, of the same county and state. To this un ion two children were born, but only one, Victoria, is now living. The writer,accom panied by his wife, called to see James a few days before his death. His cheerful and hopeful utterances in reference to his approaching end filled our hearts with hope, reassuring us that “earth has no sorrows that Heaven cannot heal.” “They sin who tell us love can die, With life all other passions fly; But it's a flame that ever burneth, From heaven it came,to heaven returneth.” The funeral occurred on Sunday, from the family residence, and was largely at tended. All the brothers and sisters were present. Though the occasion was solemn yet to see that excellent family in the pres ence of the dead son, brother and father, who before death had expressed hopes of seeing them all in that world where sorrow and sighing shall flee away and tears shall be wiped from all eyes and death swal lowed up in victory. Yes, the love of the “unchangeable Father, and the promises recorded that in the ages to come accord ing to the riches of His grace, He would gather together in one all things under Christ; for it pleased the Father that in Christ should all fulness dwell. And hav ing made peace through the blood of the cross, by Him to reconcile all things to himself; by Him, I say, whether they be things on earth, or things in heaven.” The services were conducted by the writer. An appropriate song by the choir of the neigh borhood, reading of the Scriptures and prayer; then some general remarks on the resurrection and th« future state of man,as found in the 22d chapter of Matthew. The subject matter of the discourse was iu show ing how little that was understood. The Sadducees had become disgusted with the Pharisees and their unreasonable assump tions touching the resurrection of our mor tal bodies. The Sadducees asked the ques tion, saying: “Master. Moses said: If a man die, having no children, his brother shall marry his wife and raise up issue, or children to his brother. Now there were with us seven brethren, and one died, lea /- ing no children ; another married her, and likewise the wholekeven,all of whom died, and last of all the woman died. Now, there fore, whose wife shall she be in the resur rection, for seven had her to wife? Jesus answered and said unto them: Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures nor the power of God. In the resurrection they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels.” Christ charges them with ignorance. “You err, not knowing the scriptures,” i. e. the meaning of the scrip tures. They seemed to have no knowledge of the dead or the two natures of man, the body first, then the spirit separating at death. Mother earth claims our earthly bodies and our Father in heaven claims our spirits and raises them to Himself. The last account we have of the spirits of our common humanity they are in the hands of God. God is love, and love thinks no evil. In the language of the learned Dr. Dwight, Ist Corinthians, 15: “The subject of this chapter is the future existence of man. The word commonly rendered resurrection usually denotes our existence beyond the grave.” The services over, a large pro cession formed and moved awav to Forest cemetery. The day was beautiful. Prayer was offered for the living, mingled with hope for the dead, and a re-union in that “land that is fairer than day.” Thos. Ballinger JULY 4, 1H94.
