Mayne temporary In junctions restraining County Auditor Innea from entering on the tax books the assess ments made against property owned by himself and father, W. S. Mayne, for the construction of the Pigeon Creek drainage ditch. The county authorities are made defendants In two separate suits. W. 8. Mayne, who owns considerable land In Garner and Carson townships, was assessed something over ' 31,500, the com missioners claiming that his property would be benefited that amount by the construc tion of the drainage ditch. This assess ment, Mr. Mayne contends. Is wholly un warranted, as his property Is located three miles from the proposed ditch and cannot possibly be benefited by it The further claim Is made by Mr. Mayne that his land at present has a sufficient and natural drainage Into the Missouri river. George II. Mayne was assessed 3375. The proposed ditch will pass through his prop erty, but he has not been awarded any damages for the land which will be taken In the construction of the ditch. Mr. Mayne contends that his property will not be benefited by the drainage ditch, but on the contrary will be damaged by It as the water course will cut off his road to Coun cil Bluffs. f Something for Christmas When you buy an Xinaa - Prest-jjf, buy oue that will not only be beautiful, but useful as well.

DECIDES TO HOLD A FAIR NEXT YEAR Board of Education to Be Asked to Pay for Articles Stolen from Cloak Room of West Des Molaes High School. ' (From a 8taff Correspondent) DES MOINES, Dec., 10. (Special.) The State Board of Agriculture today adopted the recommendation of a special committee on food adulteration, composed of ex-Governor 8. B. Packard and M. J. Wragg, which included the draft of a bill that will be pushed before the legislature next win ter. The committee had been Instructed a year ago to make an exhaustive report and Investigation, and reported that there Is great need for some law In Iowa that will reach the matter of adulterations. The bill creates the office, of state dairy and food commissioner, and he succeeds to all the duties and compensations now pertaining to the dairy commissioner. With the approval of the executive council he may appoint assistants Who shall re ceive 33 a day and expenses, and 3300 a year Is added ta the present salary of the dairy commissioner. An official chemist Is to be appointed at $1,300 a year and lab oratory and apparatus shall be furnished him. The commissioner shall make rules for carrying out this act and procure sam ples of food offered for sale for examina tion by the chemist. The certificate of the chemist as to the contents of a substance shall be prima facie evidence. The com missioner shall have the facta certified to any county attorney, who shall proceed to orosccute for violations. The essential c'auae of the bill Is: No person by himself, his servant or ri.nt nr as the servant or agent of any other person, shall manufacture or Intro duce into the state, or solicit or take op ders for delivery, or sell, exchange, deliver or have in his possession with intent to sell, exchange, expose or offer for sale or exchange any article of food which la adulterated or mlsDranaea wunin me mw Ins of this act. . Hits the Original Vendor. The part of the bill that Is, new and somewhat novel and which It Is believed will draw to the bill many supporters Is. In the phrase "or solicit or take orders for delivery," which will fasten the responsi bility upon the agent who goes about dis posing of goods that are not right. The chief objection of the retail grocers of the state has been that the penalties have ap plied to the seller only, since the manu facturer. If he lives in another state, can not be reached. The word "food" Is de fined In the bill to Include all articles used as food, drink, confectionery or condiment by men or domestic animals. "Misbranded signifies bearing false statement as to in gredlents, substances or quantity contained In package offered for sale, or false state ment as to the state or country where man u fact u red or produced. The ' '. m of "adulteration- Is Identical-with that given In the Hepburn bill pending In congress. No dealer Is to be proeeouted If he has a written guaranty signed toy the wholesale salesman, Jobber or manufacturer, pro vided the guarantor' resides in this state, lThe penalties . are theft i.'jU , be applied to the' guarantor. The , eommlssloner may cause mixed or compound goods to be branded. He may compel a dealer to sell to him. but the dealer may also require that the sample be divided into three parts, one for the commissioner, one for the county attorney and one for himself, for comparison. Violation of the law Is to be a misdemeanor punishable with a fine of not to exceed 3500 or slg months In Jail and a second offense Is to be punished with Imprisonment not less than sixty days nor more than a year and the fine may be doubled. The bill and the report will go before the next legislature and the State ' Board of Agriculture will send a lobby to work for the, same. It Is regarded as the most complete bill ever prepared for this pur pose. State Fair Next Year The St&te Agricultural board this morn ing proceeded to organise by the re-eleo-tlon of the old officers, after which the matter of having a state fair In Iowa In 1901 was taken up. There had been some doubt In the minds of igm of the direc tors as to whether or not there should be a state fair in view of the nearness of Des Moines to St. Louis and the fear that the fair would not be sufficiently patron Ised to make It pay. Secretary Simpson, however, had been forehanded In the mat ter and had written to nearly all the leading exhibitors, especially of live stock, asking them to stats positively whether or not they would exhibit at the fair. He had 100 letters from these exhibitors and all but eleven of them stated positively that they would exhibit and that they desired to come again to a state fair, despite the St. Louis exposition. This was regarded as conclusive of the matter and the board voted unanimously that a state fair should be held next year and the datea as fixed at the association of fairs were adopted. The fair will begin August 19, The fair board also named superintend' ents of the departments and went to work on revision of the premium lists, - The State Horticultural society closed its program today after heating many report and having a number of papers. Awards were made on the apple exhibit. Sensations at a Hlab School. The faculty of the West Des Moines High school is preparing to present a bill to the school board for a considerable sum on account of articles stolen from the cloak rooms In ths past few months. Com plaints have been common of thefts' from the high school and many pupils have suffered. Last week there was taken from the overcoat of one boy a pair of opera glasses that cost "C6,- and other valuable articles. Investigation was made, but Mrs. I.ydia Whltaker, a widow, claiming to be a graduate of the State Normal school, was found by the police today to be engaged In working at teaming - and dressed as a man. She tells a story of hardship, and that she had at one time been In the state reform school, but some time ago came here and found her grand father In poverty. There was nothing for her to do, but he hnd a team of horses and wagon she could use, and she donned male attire and has worked outdoors ever since. She hauls coal and garbiige, and ves with her grandfather In a hovel near the packing houses. The police will In- estlgate. Revise College Estimates. The legislative committee of the Iowa State college at Ames held a session here and revised the estimates on the cost of buildings required and other, matters be fore presenting the same to the legisla ture. The committee went over the fig ures, and made a number of changes, re ducing the amounts to be asked of the legislature. Optimistic on Prohibition. O. W. Stewart of Chicago, chairman of the national prohibition committee. Is at tending a meeting of the state central committee here today.

BODY FOUND WITH NECK TIED Extra Iowans Propose to Find Out Who Fastened Strap on Richard Robaon. EXIRA, la., Dec. 10. Much excitement prevails here as a result of the, finding of the body of Richard Robson, the 18-year-old son of Joseph Robson of Center township. The boy disappeared a month ago and nothing more was known of him until Fred Kline, a young farmer, while out hunting this week, stumbled over the body. Four weeks ago Dick Robson took a team and went to the field to husk corn. Borne hours later the team with which he went out came to the barnyard without an attendant and with the lines fastened on the side of the wagon, . much as they are usually fastened by corn huskers, A search for the young man proved fruit less and It was supposed he had tired of home life and had gone out to see some of the world. The finding of the body and the further fact that tied around his neck was a leather strap such as Is used for a hitch rein and that there were no marks of violence on the body lead the authorities to bellove that there was foul p'ay and Coroner Clyde Baker has ordered an in quest There Is something nf nected with this family. Some years ago the elder Robson lost his wife and later married a woman from an eastern state. It Is said,' after a correspondence started through a matrimonial paper. A couple of years ago this wife secured a divorce and considerable money. Much hard feeling wtaa caused. by the divorce pro ceeding, i Early last spring an older brother of the boy whose body was found today died after a short Illness. Tonirht It Is said there was something mysterious about his death and that his body may be exiiumed-. Parties in charge of -the case intimate that there may be a big sensation, but further than that refuse to talk. 6 Your The average por to think what the day between Cht cisco means to the pie of America; time and money, Destination vieto son may not stop saving of a whole oago and San Fran. busy, bustling peo but It means both and who Is there who would not do his best to win out on both propo- Biuons. ido roiiowing neeas no comment; Vis Omaha, the Union PacKlo It 204 mHes shorter to 8 alt Lake City, 278 miles shorter to San Franoleoo, 278 miles shorter to Los Angeles, 358 miles shorter to Portland, 12 hours quloker to Salt Lake City, 18 hours quloker to San Franolsoo, 18 hours quicker to Los Angeles, 18 hours quloker to Portland than any other line.
