,4 Bold Robbery
^Saturday night, John Flomming
eived tho attention of thieves
twice during theevering, but fcrtun
ately the pilfering scouydrela in both
instances were promptly nabbed and
now rest in security in tho county
jafl. The Grit case occurred early in
the evening and was a very bold
trick. John was standing near the
door waiting on a customer when a
young iad,
15 or 10 years of age, came
in, looked around a little, and in re
ply to the question of tho proprietor
as to whether he wanted to buy any
thing said not, but as he went ont
grabbed a pair of boots and ran.
One of the Pallisters witnessed the
transaction from across the street.
The boy ran a short, distance, gave
the boots to a partner, and for a time
their escape acemod to be certain.
Policeman Cummings, however, soon
had the boy and not longaftor caught
the man and lodged them in jail.
About the time of tho fire a well
dressed stranger kickcd in ono of the
windows, picked up A pail of boots
and.shoesand madeofl'. Patsey Noon
na was at the Ballingall House corner,
heard the breaking of the gUss, aud
at once took in the situation. He
went galloping down the Htrcet aud
overhauled the fellow at Hill's cor
ner, recovered the goods and inarched
the prisoner off to jail.
It is the opinion of many that they
are the party who set the building on
fire for the purpose of attracting at
tention while they got in their work.
They are probably a gang working
together, and are strangers to the po
lice of tho city. The last mentioned
thief if* a well-dressed, kid-gloved,
plug-hat rooster, while the other two
are more of the tramp order. They
will probably be taken care of for
some titne by the county, even if the
State is not called upon to assist in
their care.
Since the above was written we
learn the boy and man above alluded
to, earlier in, the evening stole a silk
handkerchief and a pair of pants
from Messrs. W. X. Jordan & Suns,
Which together with tho boots taken
from Flemming were found by Mar
shal Trotter hidden in the stork yards
Slid fully identified by the owners.
Fred Burns, such is tho name he
gives, was arraigned in tho Mayor's
court, this morning, on the charge of
house-breaking in the night nud
grand larceny. He waived examina
tion and was held to answer to the
District Court in the sum of $500, in
default of which he was committed.
In tho case of tho man and boy for
petit larceny in the I'lemining case,
each were sentenced to thirty days in
jail, and received the same penalty in
the Jordan case. The man gives the
name of John Davis, and the boy
that of Iennis Kneeland.

Stewarts process does not differ much
from mine except where 1 uae aul
phurous acid water, he perfected this
to a dioxide of sulphur which he has
patented. We heat the juice to 1£0
degrees Fahr. to get the action of the
vegetable albuaiensin the juice which^
has coagulated at this point aud put:
in milk of lime enough to turn the red
litmus paper blue—keep up the heat
till boiling point when shut off, tak
ing the scum off the top, let it settle a
few minutes and draw the clear juice
off, when this has cooled down to
about 150 degrees dioxide of sulphur
is put in to neutralize the lime (blue
litmus showing red) otherwise the
lime would act on the sugar and turn
the juice dark. It is now boiled down
rapidly in a shallow body to 235 de
grees or 23t, using extra finishing pan
at latter stage where it can bo stirred
to prevent scorching—run into cooler
and when cooled down to about 90
degrees put iu a warm place to gran

Common field corn yields only 1
per cent loss than sorghum cane and
only 5 per cent, loss than Louisiana
sugar cane. Tho time is near at hand
when every farmer, who has any get
up in him, can make his own sugar
and bo independent of Cuba or any
other country for that article which
is so largely consumod in this coun

first opportunity to lay bofore our
readers further information on this
very important subject. We havo ob

Did you ever lose any money Did
you ever ransack your pockets to find
some change which you was sure you
placed there, and when you discover
ed that it was gone, lost, do you re
member how badly you felt? Yet
people lose money every day, and
kuow it not. Here is a person who
buys an article for $10.00. If he had
known the proper place to buy it at,
he might have bought it for $9.00,
and perhaps for less. Did he
not lose money out of his pocket?
We can tell you how such leakages
may be avoided. We can not say that
we are offering disinterested advice,
for we are speaking in the interest of
a firm which already does by far the
heaviest business in their line, and
which rests not in their effort to do
more. We refer to Chas. Sax &Bro.,

stock,—we have priced Ihoir goods.

They will give you their prices. They
won't clutch you by the arm and re

don't realize that the only way you
can keep from "losing money," is to

PISCATORIAL.—B. F. Shaw, State
Fish Commissioner, passed through
the city yesterday with his fish car.
lie was accompauicd by his son, Mr.
Edward Shaw, who is assisting his
father in the work of distributing
fish. The car is capable of carrying
about 80,000 tisli. It is BO arranged
that the young spawn havo every ad
vantage ot their native element. In
one end of the car are two large hogs
beads. From these pipes run through
the car. Underneath these pipes the
cans containing the fish are placed.
On one side of each can is a small
aperture covered by a close wire
screen. The water runs in at the top
of tho can and out through the open
ing in the side, thereby keeping tho
water, not only fresh, but continually
in motion. The hogsheads are filled
about every threo hours from the
tanks along the railroad lines.
Mr. Shaw was on his way from Ca
sey to Muscatine. At Casey he put a
large number of fish into the Middle
rivers, and sent several thousand far
ther west to bo placed in tho Nisna
botny and Turkey rivers aud the
Keg and Mosquito creeks. He will
distribute 80,0(H) fish between Coun
cil Bluffs and Davenport on this trip.
He put 5,000 in the Pes Moines river
in this city, depositing them at a
point near the Itock Island railroad
bridge. The tish are black, yellow
and striped bass, pike, sunfish, crop
pies and channel catfish.
Mr. Shaw has been doing valuable
work this fall, lie passed along the
Mississippi river, and removed thou
sands of tish from the stagnant pools
left liy the falling of the main stream.
In these pools he found many fish al
ready dead, and hundreds of others
that could not live but a few days.
Ho removed the living, and placed
them into tho healthy, purs streams.
This, together with tho work of gen
eral distribution, has made the task
no ordinary one. Tho railroads
throughout the state have been very
liberal and accommodating to him.
lie estimates that already he has
traveled over 5,000 miles this fall
over the railroads in the state, hav
ing always one, and somotimes two
and threo men with him, and the
railroads have not charged him a cent
for transportation. From Muscatine
Mr. taUaw and his son will proceed
along the .Southwestern road with
their car .continuing tho work of dis
tribution SL'he state has reason to re
joice over the excellent work being
dono by Fish .Commissioner Shaw.
It will not be long until all our prin
cipal streams will stocked with a
superior quality of tish and an abaa
danceof them.—iStute Rej/ister.
"Deacon Wilder I want you to tell
me how you kept yourself and fan^i-1
so well the past 'season, when all
the rest of us have been sick so much
and have had the doctors running to
us so long."
"Bro. Taylor, the answer is very!
easy. I used Hop Bitters in time and'
kept my family well and saved large
doctor bills. Three dollars worth of
it kept us all well and able to work
all tho time, and I will warrant it has
ost you and most of tho neighbors
one to two hundred dollars apiece to
keep sick tho same time. 1 gness
you'll take my medicine hereafter."

Sandy Stone, of the Gale City, has
been up this way and this is what ho
has to say about our town:
"Our neighboring city of Ottumwa
is displaying evidencos of enterprise,
growth and prosperity that must be
very gratifying to its citizens. A big
pork packing establishment is in pro
cess of erection near the junction of
theC., B. & aud K. & 1*. M. roads.
The foundation is also being laid for
a largo manufactory of somo kind
near the new water power, and nu
merous improvements in tho way of
private residences and other bsild
ugs are iu progress."
Hayes, of Itloomtield township, re
ceived a telegram last night stating
that his brother-in-law, John Meyers,
of Washington County, had been
mortally wounded by a bull yester
day morning. Mr. Meyers was one
of the first settlers in this county, but
removed from here £somo twenty
years ago to the farm in Washington
county, where he has since resided,
lie has acquired a handsome fortune
in farming and live stock, and was,
up to the time of the accident, a stout,
active man. All the old settlers of
the county will remember him well,
and be pained to hear of his sad mis
fortune.—iState Register.

Recently a young married couple
in New Orleans determined to visit
the "old folks," who livo in one of the
coast parishes, and surprise them by
diaplaying a new grandchild. Ac
cordingiy they started for the ances
tral home, but when the young man
and hi* retinue reached tho paternal
mansion and their advent was an
nounced, the old man, afraid of the
fever, peremptorily refused to see his
son or his wife or his child, and
furthermore ordered them off his
premises and, despite all remon
strances, they were obliged to depart,
greatly chagrined.
A report was brought to town Sun
day that Mr. Packwood, familiarly
called "Old Uncle Billy," had died
suddenly the night before with heart
disease. He was one of thc old set
tlers in this country and was univer
sally esteemod and looked up to by
every one who knew him. Ue was a
warm-hearted, generous man, always
willing to ahare anything bo bad
with a neighbor, and never weary of
doing a friend a good turn. Ilia al
ways ready joke and hearty laugh
will be missed, especially by the
young. He died as he had lived
without giving any man just cause to
be his enemy. Peace he wilb

they were tired on by a party of hos

John Young was fatally wounded.
Charles Leonard at once put the
team into a run and fled from the

Feeding Animals.
BIIHV Calendar.
This is the fattening time of the
year, Beeves, pigs, poultry, take on
flesh well at other seasons, but this
month and next especially before the
very cold weather of December
comes, they fatten rapidly. All stock
should be put in good order for win
ter. Soft corn, nubbins, grown grain,
green pumpkins, and such fruits as
are liable to decay, ought to bo fed
out to the cattle to get them in good
condition before cold weather comes
on. Beeves should have full feeds of
scalded corn-meal and oil-cake on
corns-stalks or chopped hay. Sheep
should have their allowance of grain
increased, especially those that are
fattening, though so long as pastur
age is fair they should be kept upon
it. Swine must have the small pota
toes, boiled and mixed with meal
all their feed ought to be cooked.
Oil-meal is excellent and economical
feed used with other things so is beef
or even pork scraps. Mix finely pow
dered charcoal and a little wood ashes
occasionally with the food of hogs,
especially if they do not come to the
soil their growth and fattening are
much promoted by it.

A slight attack of indigestion, espec

to digestive weakness of the stomach
must speedily culminate in the more

particularly true, because as dyspep
