Along the Mississippi river every
few miles one sees the queerest,
quaintest little old towns, relics of
the days when steamboating was in
its glory. Now even the few steam
boatmen who navigate the Hood, will
be asked in vain for t le names of the
towns. They have been so utterly
forgotten. They are usually solidly
built of brick, and have one big brick
or stone structure on the shore, once
the center of steamboat traflic, now,
like Xapolean was, grand, gloomy,
peculiar. An amusin illustration of
the Babylonian solitude of these
towns is the fact that Gilbert, across
the river from Molin i, used to have
three streets leading to the Missis
sippi. Last season a property owner
fenced up two, and this season a third
has been similarly appropriated.
J Ins .tlimir mi'jrht nave "-one unno
ticed, hut for the dry season and

ple to seek the river to water their
cattle. So the Iowa state authorities
have the matter it: hand and the
builder of the fences has received no
tice to remove them r to report to
the grand jury, bear ng in his hand
also, the deeds, patents, grants or
other evidences of s ivereignty that
lie holds, or thinks lie holds, over
those barricaded hijh.vavs. Gcneseo
