The parents and husband of the
late Mrs. Augusta Metier desire to
express their thanks to neighbors
and friends for many acts of kindness
in their late affliction.
A horse attached to a Davenport
commission man's wagon made a
lively run along Third avenue in the
vicinitv of Tenth street last evening,
scattering eggs and other articles all
along the street. A boy who was
driving narrowly escaped serious in
jury. In a letter from Chicago to a friend
in this city. Fred Hass writes as fol
lows concerning the WorhPs fair ho
tels: --I consider it unwise to make
advance payment on World's fair
(juarters, or juite unnecessary to
make any arrangement for accom
modations, as you can do much bet
ter yourself after you come here, a
everv person knows better what he
wants after he sees them. Furnished
rooms in hotels and private families
arc so numerous that 10,000 people
could be easily accommodated in the
World's fair district. There is not a
hotel or rooming house that is at the
present using one-fourth of its capac
ity. The magnitude of the fair is mi
vast that it would be difficult to ex
press it on paper. As regards prices.
I consider them very reasonable. I
have discovered that people who
have made advance payments have
been jrreatlv taken in."
Ouit the stage.
The Cherry sisters have taken the
advice of the press and gone home to
their farm, but they now appear in
the role of litigants in a court of law.
After they had decided on a starring
tour they leased their little farm, an
imals, increase, etc., to a Mr. Houts
for a period of one year, beginning.
March 1. Returning from the tour
they decided to oust Mr. Houts ami
brought a replevin action for the
livestock. The ease was heard be
fore Judge Ellsberry, of Marion, Sat
urday. A jury was impanelled and
the hearing lasted throughout the
lay. The jury on retiring finally
agreed to disagree, and the result will
probably be another trial. The girls
have staying qualities, and though
Mr. Houts may- defeat them in their
action, the Cedar Rapids paper thinks
strong reasons exist for believing
that for him life will hardly be worth
the living during the text year. If
they would sit on the fence and sing
to him, says an exchange, Mr. Houts
would no "doubt vacate the premises
in a hurry.
Ia tho liarth Slowly Freezing?
In Spitsbergen and Greenland, in Alaska,
along tho banks of the Mackenzie river,
even in Grinncll Iml between 80 and 83
degrees north latitude the farthest point
yet reached fossil plants have been found
belonsang to the carboniferous, jurassic,
cretaceous and tertiary periods, and these
plants have been descriled by Professor
Oswald Ilcrr of Zurich. The fossil sequoias
of Grinnell Land bear an unmistakable re
semblance to the living sequoias of Califor
nia, while ths fossil laurel Laurus primi
genia of ancient Greenland is- said to bo
the direct ancestor of our present laurel.
The cold which overwhelmed the ancient
polar regions is not arrested in its progress;
the cause which first hrought it on is still
at work. Our sun is becoming more and
more condensed, and by and by it will no
longer find in the contraction of its diam
eter a source sufficient to keep up its en
ergy, ai:d with the extinction of the sun
our earth must perish. The approach of
this deadly world cliill i.i infinitely slow
so slow that history takes no note of it
but in time the now crowded portions of
the cr.rth m;;st meet the fate of Greenland
ami Spitsbergen. This day is still buried
in tho distant future, but far off as it is the
lesson of the past tells us that it is coming.

Joslin, June 13 F. E. Crompton
considering that the Swedish jubilee
at Rock Island was the opportunity
of a lifetime, went down on Thursday
and did not return until Monday. It
is interesting to know that the jubi
lee is in commemoration of the
300dth anniversary of that memora
ble assembly of Upsala, at which, af
ter a 70 years' struggle, the Evangel
ical Lutheran Church of the Reforma
tion at last gained the victory and
was fully established in Sweden. We
could but notice that a majority of
the visitors were well dressed, broad
cloth suits and silk hats predominat
ing, and that they were very socia
ble, friendly and polite to all around
them. In 1993 we hope to have the
privilege to meet with them again.
Dr. Morgan, of Moline, gave an
address to the people Of Barstow, on
Monday evening last, showing forth
the benefits of the Forum. On Tues
day the Dr. and Mrs. Morgan start
Tor the World's fair to be srone two
weeks.
. The cut worm is destroying whole
fields of corn, some of "which has
been tended both ways, and al
though this is June 13, there are
quite a number of farmers replant
ing, which is very discouraging.
On Monday morning we heard the
engine f a freight train tooting for
some time, ami then to slacken speed,
and finally after killing a yearling
calf, the train stopped.
John Moore, James Rathbun and
Charles F. Shafer have insured their
residences and farm buildings in the
Coe and Znma Mutual.
Mr. ami Mrs. James Rathbun and
their daughter visited with F. K.

last.
The frequent showers we are hav
ing, combined with the heat, is caus
ing the corn to grow rapidly.
