Words ensued and Milder alleges the conductor struck him In the face and continued striking him until the other passengers interfered and compelled the conductor to desist. Milder alleges that the assault was entirely unprovoked. Disappoints the Children. The wet weather yesterday brought dis appointment to many a small child in Coun- I ell Bluffs who had been eagerly looking forward to the trolley party and picnic of ; the DeLong Industrial school. The trolley party and picnic was carried out, but not until after It had been once decided to postpone It. and this caused many to stay at home. It was decided at first to post- none it until tndav. but Rev. Mr. DeLona learned that the grounds at the lake had been reserved for the Royal Arcanum, and next week Shady Grove would be occupied by the camp of the Knights of Pythias. So at the last. minute It. was deemed best to carry out the plans already made. Three cars sufficed to carry the crowd of children whov however, thoroughly enjoyed them selves despite the dampness of the ground at the lake resort. Supper was served In Shady Grove after the trolley ride to Omaha and back. Fish and Game Association.

I The biennial report of Superintendent Ap plegate on the Iowa hospital was filed to day, and the superintendent reports many improvements In the two years, including a new heating system, the Improvement of the farm and garden and much repair work to buildings. The hospital needs an In firmary for women, an amusement hall and many other things, summarised as follows: Woman's infirmary, 130,000; oper ating room for men's infirmary, SS.OOO; en larging horse barn, $1,500; farmers' lodge, , $9,000; bake oven, $2,000; floors and furnl- ture, $12,000; kitchen Improvements, $2,600; amusement hall, $3,500; extension of main corridor, $2,500; ' basement, $1,200; painting, $7,000; Improvement of grounds, $4,000; cls j tern and fire protection, $5,000; farm and i garden, $7,500; roof for engine room and j resetting boilers, $6,500; reservoir, $3,500; bathroom fixtures, $1,000; lavatories, $2,000; tunnels, $3,000; new sewers, $2,000; temper lng colls, $2,600; standplpe, $3,500; contin gent and repair fund, $18,000. Indnstrlal School for Girls. Superintendent Fitzgerald In his biennial report asks for some much-needed Im provements at the Industrial School for Girls at Mitchellvllle, Including the fo! lowing: New cottage, $25,000; office build' lng, $6,000; ice house, $1,200; meat house or refrigerator, $1,000; contingent or repair fund, $3,600; library fund, $600; chaplain fund, $300; total, $36,300. In regard to the parole system Superintendent Fitzgerald declares his opposition to It, as the pur pose of the school should be to give the wayward girls education or training to fit them for life, or the system of putting them out on paroles Is found to be not suitable. The grade system Is also dls approved to some extent. The method of securing good work or preventing escapes Is to lead the girls to desire education or to make their work profitable or pleasant, They are Impressed that this Is not prison, but a school. The result has been that the girls are given great liberty, are allowed to go to town or small parties, frequently visit Des Moines and there are no attempts at escape. Superintendent Fits geraia bsks lor an increase In the, per capita allowance for the Institution that the growing needs may be met. Modified Itinerant Rnle. Before adjourning, the State Board of Medical Examiners rescinded the resolu tion of the board, which was passed, last February, which directed the secretary to not Issue licenses to itinerant' doctors re siding In other states. The attorney gen eral has since decided that the board ex ceeded Its authority in making this dis crimination. Complaint had come to the board because of doctors holding licenses J and residing in other states. They would eena xneir agents into tne state and do a fraudulent business, but because of tholr living In another state the victims would prefer to let the matter go, and not prose cute. Hereafter the old system of issuing licenses to outside doctors will prevail again. The board directed the Issue of certificates to 137 of the 181 applicants who were examined. The Board of Health ! elected Dr. Adams and Colonel Francis company, with a capital of $26 010, was In- . , ., , lT , corporated by F. H. and H. H. Shepard. i Look for No Fair Postponement. The statement has been published some what widely In the state that there is ex pectation of a postponement of ths St. Louis exposition for another year, and this statement Is causing some embarrass ment to the comrnlKKioncri engaged In working for an Iowa exhibit. Secretary Conaway, who recent'y vlaited St. Louis, says that there is much talk on the out side about the fair not being ready for ! "ct 'r- but thnt "ong the tffl.Uli of j exposition there is no anticipation that I tn exposition will be put off. On the con- I n .. a i i I wry. r. runaway wa grr.ny pieaseu " tire progress mat was oeing maae in building the' exposition, and says that he sees no reason why the fair management will not be able to get ready for the otn lng nrxt spr.nj. At any rate, the low commission Is going ahrad on the aisunp tlon that the exposition will be next year and not the year after. The Icwa bu lding will toon be out of the way, aad tt.e work of getting ready for an Iowa exhibit ii now well In hand. Olmsted May Inspect Guard. Governor. Cummins has requested of the War Department that Major J. A. Olra sted of this city, retired United States army major, be dnnlgnated to represent the regular army In Iowa In the m itter of Inspection of the national guard and In struction under the new national militia law.

Such ac tion Is being taken by the Knight of Co lumbus all over the country, and the Des Moines council will be one of the first. WOMEN PROBABLY WORKED Roy and Pay for Magraslne and Soy Walt for the Pre miums. CRESTON, la., Aug. 7,-(Speclal.)- About 100 women of Creston are wonder ing whether they are really such great bargain getters, or whether they have b' en the victim of misplaced confidence. About six weeks ago a smooth-tongued stranger came to town, purporting to be advertis ing the New Idea Magazine. He said he was going to put In a premium store and give away premiums for the purchase of so many magazines. The capital prize was Ano dinner set of Haviland china, which would be delivered when they had bought flfty-twe Journals at 10 cents each, with the understanding that they were to buy twenty-eight more. There were also smaller premiums for lesser numbers of books, and those who stopped at the smaller number now seem to have been lucky. He delivered the bookB, one each week, for a lime, and Impressed upon the women that the sooner all were bought the quicker the premium would be deliv ered, and Induced many to pay the full $5.20 and take all the magazines. This was about two weeks ago, and when the worn in began to get anxious about their money they Inquired at his boarding place and found that he had been gone from town almost a week, and neither premiums nor store have yet materialized. The women have a number of magazines worth prob ably 2 -cents each, and, as It now looks, $5.20 worth of experience. The magazines could be bought for probably 2 cents each. Farmer Files Bankruptcy Petition. CRESTON, Ia., Aug. 7. (Special.) Frank Chandler, one of the most widely known farmers of Sand Creek township, and h s wife, have, filed petitions In voluntary bankruptcy.

His parents are residents of Creston. Big Price for Land. CRESTON, Ia., Aug. 7. (Special.) Those people who thought that farm land In Union county was decreasing In valm have another guets coming. George Wat lace yesterday purchased of Ezra Arnold twenty acres of land Just east of the north branch track, near Creston, for which ho paid $2,300, or $115 per acre.

Arrangements have been made for the corner-stone 1 lying anti dedication. The corner-stone will be laid next Sunday, and the dedication will take place November 22. PIGEON STOPPED A CLOCK Rescued from an Accidental Snare In the Steeple of a New . York Church. The mystery of the erratic conduct of the clock In the steeple of St. Mark's church, Second avenue and Tenth street, was cleared up when a kite string and a pigeon were found to be responsible for the charges of horologlcal misconduct lodged against the ancient timepiece since last Sunday. The bird, entangled In the cord, was rescued by the assistant sexton amid the cheers of a great crowd far below, Just In time to snve Its life, for It was In the last stages of starvation. Churchgoers and others noticed last Bun day that the clock waa acting In a man ner befitting neither its age nor Its position as hour marker over the historic graveyard. Not only was Its course unreliable, but Its actions were positively skittish, the minute hard having been seen to wiggle In a most undignified manner. Robl Roefs, the as sistant toxton, observed all four dials of the clock during a period of time marked by the consumption of four plpefuls of to bacco, but aside from a fluttering bird on the first ledge below the eastern face could see nothing unusual. By Monday the clock had stopped alto gether, and cn Tuesday It was decided that something was radically wrong with It. On Wednesday the decision was reached that the repairer was needed; Thursday he was summoned, and Friday he teported and climbed Into the belfry. Mr. Roefs took his station on the other side of the street to watch developments and his earnest gaze at the clock attracted a little crowd. The clock repairer meanwhile found noth ing wrong with the works and began turn ing the hands. As the big axle revolved a little winged creature, fluttering feebly, was seen to be carried up by some invisible forco toward the sweeping hands. A shout rang from the crowd, and Mr. Roefs rsn to the church and up into the steeple to halt the man there. The crowd outlde had swelled to a throng of a couple of thousand. Trucks stopped In the street and the drivers watched the struggles of the snared pigeon. Then the hands stopped, the bird swinging a few inches below them. Wrhlle the street full of men. women and children waited in painful anxiety to see the fate of the bird a lattice far below the clock was opened and a long ladder was thrust out. The assistant sexton and the clockman lashed It upright, and then Mr, Roefs began Ms ascent outside the steeple, in a few minutes be reached the ledge be low the clock and, drawing up another lad der, waa able to rvh the dial. Then he gently disentangled the bird from the kite- string, one end of which had been wrapped around the axle of the clock. Tearing away the cord, he lowered the upper ladder. climbed down the lower one and regained the security of the Inside of the steeple. The crowd cheered him when he rescued the bird, and again when he came out of the church. The pigeon was given to a pigeon fancier living near by to nurse back to health. The clock resumed its dignified and accurate course of conduct, and marked midnight acceptably to the ghosts of Peter Stuyvesant and his fellow patrons who lie burled In the quiet yard beneath.

TRUE ENGLISH FAIRY TALE Nine-Year-Old Girl Mad Heiress to O'.d Man's Million SHE WON HIS HEART BY HER SMILE John rort's Life Work and the Ro man t Ic Tarn it Took After He Had Met Its Little Heroine. A little English girl living near Manches ter has been made, the heroine of a real, actual fairy tale Just like one of the kind she loves. She won the heart of an old, seemingly crabbed man. He Is dead now, and Janey, at the age of , Is worth $2,500, 000. The story of Jane Loft's good fairy begins seventy years ago, when there was born In a mean street of -an ugly Manchester sub urb a boy who In the ordinary course of tvents was christened John Port. His parents were among the poorest of the poor, and the boy had hardly emerged from babyhood before he was plunged into fac tory work. There was no factory Inspector In those days to save a child fr6m work at a tender age and John went Into the factory without education and with no hope of securing it. At I o'clock In the morning the hoarse call of the whistles drew him to the mill and sent him home again at t. From then until 8 the boy struggled with his books In an effort to give himself knowledge which could not be'glven him byothers. It was a commonplace chapter In the life of a commonplace boy. Other boys In his position had no hope. They were reconciled early to the prospects of dreary work and hopeless poverty, but John was angrily ambitious. "I hate poverty; I will be rich some day," he told his foreman. Living in this state of rebellion, he at tained his majority. He was earning $7.60 a week then, and for eight years had been saving a little from his wages. He found himself able to set up a small shop and start out on his own endeavors. Manches ter was then a growing city, constantly spreading out. People were beginning to swarm to its suburbs, and partlculnr'y to the suburb In which John Port's shop was located. "Sell the people's necessaries; let others sell them luxuries." was the maxim he worked on. He realized that tho peop'a flooding the new district must have beds and he began the manufacture of them. His suceeai was Immediate and great. In time he had built a large factory and soon had become one of the wealthiest men In Manchester. He also became one of the loneliest and least known of the citizens. He played no part In publlo lite. He had nothing In com mon with the other citizens. He had mar ried, but his wife died and left him child less. He was a self-centered man. Busi ness was his all Jn life. He had succeeded as he had told the foreman he would. He was rich, but he was a solitary old man. Beginning of Romance, Here begins the romance of a hitherto unromantlo life. A little girl of 4 years managed to entwine herself in the heart of the old martinet. Without knowing that he was yielding to her Influence, the old man found that he could not live without the girl. He took her to his home and her welcome when he returned at the evening from his factory was the one pleasant feature of his life. They used to romp about the house to gether tb the surprise of the servants, who never tad seen the head of the house un bend. The rid man called the girl his "lit tle ray of sunshine," and was a "brighter and l.appler man In her company. ' He e'led a few weeks ago and when his will was cpened :t was found that every thing had been left to little Janey Loft w.'th the stipulation U at she. take his name t-nd be known as Jane Port. Good fortune has not changed the girl, who Is now 9 years old. A visitor found her the other day playing the piino In tho drawing room a tall, graceful Mttle maiden dressed In "ivhlte, her well poised head fringed with dark brown ringlets. On a footstool near her feat sat listening sl ilently another pretty little miss with long ; fair hair, and curled up on the floor ba- tween them wos a yellow and white dog. slumberously Indifferent to the charms of music. A dainty picture the three of them made. Miss Port played with unusual skill for one so young. Presently she sang In a pleasing childish treble. The song over, the little musician Intro duced first her friend, then Jackey, the dog, "Isn't he a beauty?" she exclaimed, caress ing the dog a description which, it Is to be feared, a canine expert might question. "Jackey Is my greatest friend. They would not let me take him to Wales with me. and I missed him so much that I hur ried back home to see htm." Miss Port does not realize the good for tune that has befallen her, although her school companions have hinted at It to her, She, by the way, declines to leave the pub lic schools she has been accustomed to at tend and have her tuition undertaken by a private governess. 'What would you like to do, Jane, If some day you became a ricn woman 7 asked the visitor. Please do not call me 'Jane,' " was the reply. "I like 'Janey' better." "All right, Janey. When you grow up would you like to be a fine lady and live In London and have carriages and horses and servants?" 'No, I am sure I should not. I should like to live In the country and grow (lowers and vegetables. The flowers I could send to ths hospitals and the vegetables J could give to the pool. On hospital Sun day I sent such a beautiful basket of flow era, but I think the children liked better the basket of daisies 1 gathered for them myself. Don't you think all little children like daisies better than those big red and blue flowers you buy In the shops?" In course of further conversation Miss Port said that what she liked doing best gt school was arithmetic. "When she was ever such a small child," added the mother, "she would ask me to give her sums to do out of her head. For a child she has a remarkable aptitude for mental rlthmetlc." Miss Port gave the visitor to understand that she did not care In the least for horses and carriages or fine dresses and Jewels. All she wanted, It appeared, to complete her present napplness was , a bicycle a. modest request, which at the time of the visitor's departure seemed on the high road to be compiled with. "And I hope I shall go to the pantonine next Christmas, for I so love the fairies." LRUs "Janey" Port has had her own real "good fairy," who has made hsr one of the richest children In England. Chi cago Tribune. MAKING HELMETS FOR FIREMEN Very Little Ckssc la the Pashloa la Fifty Years, bat Prlee Takes Tumble. There are only two firms In New York that make the solid leather hats that fire men wear while fighting the flames, and they are within a stone s throw of each other In Orand street. One firm has been In business for fifty-one years, when It used to make bats for the old volunteer firemen. The other firm entered the field thirty-eight years Ago. At that time the price of a fterman's hat was $12. The hat worn then was much the same In shape ss those worn today, but not so strong or durable. The first effect of competition was to cut the price down to $10. then to $8, and finally to $r, which Is the fixed cost agreed upon today by the rival manufacturers. As New Tork com pels every firemen to buy his own hat, the reduced price makes a material difference to the man In the ranks. The white hel mets worn by the chiefs cost more, accord ing to the amount of ornamentation de sired. The rrice of a fire chief's hat ranges from $10 to $a. There has been very little change In the Style of firemen's hats since they were adopted fifty years ago but Improved pro cess of manufacture hits made them lighter and at the same time nfford better protec tion against falling timbers or bricks. The very latest fireman's hat has n Inside can vas lining which can be bulged out Into a cushion, so that If a brick or anything else dors crufh In the thick leather superstruc ture the fireman's head Is more or less pro tected. It takes ten days to make a fireman's helmet. Thnt Is to say, ten or even one hundred of them can be made In the same time; but owing to certain processes the leather must be put through it Is Impossible to make one fireman's hat that will stsnd Official inspection In less than ton days. Nothing Is used In their manufacture but wire and leather, hut the latter must be hardened by a special process until It Is virtually bullet proof and has almost the resisting power of steel. The leather Is put through the most severe tests In the drying room. A slab of, leather used In making the hats Just shipped to Porto Rico bcre the weight of a three-ton Iron safe. The manufacturers say that their process will produce a sheet of leather that Is harder than Iron. The old volunteer firemen used what Is called a four-cone helmet. The firemen of today use an eight-cone helmet. In old times, and even now with some of the suburban volunteer Are companies, there was some attempt at ornamentation; but the city fireman wants none of It. Regu lations call for the plain black helmet with the brass eagle on top and a shield with the number of the company for the front. Nor Is tho brass eagle a work of ornamentation. It Is solidly built, and the firerren often uses It to smash In windows when no more formidable instrument is l handy. A "cone" Is a sharp ridge of metal that runs from the crown to the brim of the hel met, about half an Inch high. It Is neces sary to give strength to the hat, as well as to protect the surface from falling debris lr. burning buildings. Up-to-date Are hel mets have four of these large cones. Just as the hats worn by the volunteers did, but they have also four more cones about one eighth of an Inch high Intersecting the oth ers, and are therefore called eight-cone ! ' hats. There are Ave thicknesses of leather In the helmet, from crown to brim. In front the brim Is narrow, about the same as In a man's derby, but at the back of the brim 10 very wide and sloping. This Is not only to carry off the water, so that It shall not run down the fireman's back, but It Is also a protection In case of falling debris. A few bricks would be more likely to knock a fireman's hat off than they would to land on his head. An attempt has been made recently to use aluminum Instead of leather in the manu facture of firemen's hats, but the experi ment has not been altogether satisfactory, particularly In cities. The use of metal, enhances the danger when coming In con tact with electric wires, and the simplest sort of an accident is likely to put ths aluminum hat out of business. Still they are much lighter than the leather hats. New York Times. The Irishman's u-fsrestlon. At '.he June polo games of the Philadel phia Country chub George Gould, like all other plsyers. wore breeches of white duck. On the porch of the club house he said, one afternoon, looking down at his breeches with a smile: . "Duck trousers always remind me of an Incident that happened aboard a battleship ! !ast summer. The battleship was one of those that lay voft Newport, and I was vlaltlng It. The day was fine, and a multi tude of little boats were circling about, bent on seeing all that could be seen. "There was a young officer on board who must have sat down accidentally on a fresh painted bench or something of that kind, for his white duck trousers were very dirty. I He, though, was not aware of It He moved among the ladies gallantly, and his trousers were an eyesore. Suddenly some one on one of the little boats below caught sight of them, and in a stentorian Irish voice shouted: " 'Och. misther, wouldn't yer ducks he better for a shwim.' "Kansas City Jour nal. As to Hygiene. The world progresses. Observer had oc casion to consult the doctor the other day, for the first time In a long period, and was handed, not a prescription after the old fashion, but a diet list after the new. His attention being thus personally conducted to the subject he has since found a goodly number of similar lists In use among his friends and acquaintances. The modern motto of medicine appears to be, Indeed, "As man eateth, so he Is," and the doctor lays his mightiest stress not up his dally doses as of old. The old woman who said feebly, In former days, "Leave the pills on the chimney piece, docther, and I'll tako them when I feel betther!" was wiser than her generation. The period of pills Is pass ing and diet dawns Instead in hopefully hy gienic lines upon a welcoming world. Hotel Life. Bargains In Fyelnalies. In a hair store on Broadway a novelty Is being sold in the shape of long, luxuriant eyelashes, which can be adjusted In two minutes and will wear for one month. They cost (3 a pair. A pair of eyebrows can also be had costing V, and It Is said they will only need renewing twice a year. The demnnd Is not brisk as yet. New York Nevs. SCHOOLS. LASELL SEMINARY FOR YOUHO WOMEN.
