Waterman and wife In the district court was completed yes terday and taken under advisement by Judge Mncy. The plaintiffs filed nn amended petition yesterday , setting up that at the time Haggorty signed the deed In contro versy nnd thp contract of support he was of unsound mind nnd consequently not com petent to understand what ho was doing. The defense sot up by Mr. nnd Mrs. Water man was that the old folks deeded the prop erty to their daughter , Mrs. Waterman , In conoldcratlon of her and her husband contracting to support them for the re- mnlnder of their lives. On the resuming of the hearing yesterday morning the plaintiffs made nn offer In court to glvo a conveyance of the property to Mrs. Waterman for her life and to her children absolutely , to take effect Immediately on the death of the plaintiffs. This offer was refused by Mr. nnd Mrs. Waterman and when during the course of her examination Mrs. Waterman was asked by the counsel for the plantlffs If she Intended holding on to the property of her aged parents In opposition to their expressed wishes she answered that she did. As brought forth in the testimony , the object of .Mr. and Mrs. Haggerty In suing to have the deed set aside is that the property may be so deeded that their grand children , the chil dren of the defendants , may have the benefit of It. The case has attracted more than ordinary attention , the aged plaintiffs being pioneer residents of this city.

Marshalltown Times-Republican : It has been asserted that the democratic party In Iowa is dead. This may be so , but It Is in cumbent upon the republican party to see that Its corpse Is well burled this fall. Davenport Republican : There was fusion at Marshnlltown. but also some confusion when It was found that only about sixty pop ullsts nnd forty-three silver republicans were In attendance , while there were about BOO democrats. Cedar Rapids Republican : "Tho democrats have come to us , " said General Weaver , "we hove not gone to them. " The Marshnll town platform verified this statement. The populists have not been swallowel ; they have swallowed. Sioux City Tribune : September 21 Is Iowa day at the Omaha exposition nnd a big at tendance from this state la expected.

The law requires that a 23-cent bottle of medicine shall bear a 5-S-ccnt stamp , and that an additional G-Sc-stamp shall bo put on for each additional 25 cents at which the bottle and Its contents Is valued. Therefore the bottle should bear a 2 t-2-cent stamp.Mr. . Hayden caused Mr. Morgan's arrest and the defendant stood up for examination. Morgan admitted all the allegations , but set up in defense that the bottles bearing the dollar wrapper were sold for 23 cents.

" replied Morgan , "I wanted to let the public think it was getting | 1 worth of medicine for 2. cents. " "Just a trick of the trade , that's all , " Interpolated Mr. Longuevlllc.
