A Sioux City nurseryman being ap pealed to gave the following advice in regard to eradicating the dandelion: "I can offer some suggestions regarding the dandelion nuisance, as many people are unknowingly contributing to its propagation and distribution. The dandelion soed is found at tne base of the downy tuft, which succeeds the flower, each seed provided with a downy wing which floats it easily in the wind and thus distributes it from place to place. Tne plant should be cut just below the surface of the ground as soon as it can be found and carefully remov ed. If thrown down thero is sufficient substance in the plant to ripen the seed and thus nullify your effort. Gather all parts of the plant and place in a covered box until dry enough to burn. All seed now scattered will attempt to grow but if you see to it that no more seed i* sown the nuisance may be done away with at least so far as your own grounds are concerned." OUT OF TOWI. Messrs. flcKinnon and McGilli vray Visit Sioux City— The Floods. D. McKinnon and N, D. McGillivray returned last evening from a business visit to Sioux City. Along the line be low Canton, Mr. McKinnon says, the affects of the flood are still apparent. Whole fields of grain are under water and much damage wi'l undoubtedly re sult. The marks of the high water on the trees are appaient, indicating that it was 10 and 12 feet above its natural level. Old corn stalks washed out of the fields and lodged 011 •i* the railroad grade makng it necessary for men to go along and remove them with pitchforks. The iron rails of the track washed out were bent and twisted in every conceiv able shape. At Sioux City Messrs. Mc Kinnon and McGillivray came across I. D. Jandrcau, formerly a resident of this county. He has recently returned from West Palm Beach, Dade county, Flori da, where he has bought a farm and will remove his family to that place. His family has been living in Sioux City since they left Madison. Mr. Jandreau presented Mr. McGillivray quite a curio, the saw of an immense sawfish which Mr. Jandreau assisted in capturing off the coast of Flordia. The saw is about four feet long and armed with sharp teeth on either side. Mr. McGillivray brought the curiosity home and has it on exhibition at his store. ine proprietors 01 iuutu T'1 restaurants, through the Chicago Res tauranl Keepers' association, have sub mitted to their employes an offer of arbitration and if the offer la rejected all the restaurants in the down town^ district will b« closed. CONTRACT LET. Chas. Glatz Will Build New Cath olic Church in Madison— Cost, $25,000. The contract has been let for bniMing the new Catholic churcii in Madi-tou. This announcement will be received with hearty pleasure by every citizen of Madison, and is the culmination of strenuous work on tire part of Mgr. Flvnn and his assistants. Ever since Father Flynn's elevation by the Pope to the distinguished position he occupies in the church, the people of this city and county have felt that he was entitled to one of the finest church edifices in the state, and their desire in the matter is to be gratified. Last evening, the contract was let to Contractor Chas. Glatz of this city for building the new church which will cost when completed, $25,000. The building will be 110 feet deep, 50 feet front, and at the transept 56 feet wide, with a stately tower, all rn the Gothic style of architecture. The material used will be brick with stone trimmings, with base ment under the entire structure. Beau tiful memorial windows will embellish the structure and the interior furnish ings will be of the most magnificent character and design. The main altai will be memorial, already pledged, and alone will cost #1,000. The side altars likewise are expected to be memorial and will be in keeping with the beauty of the main altar. And as the building progresses no doubt other furnishings of a memorial character will be suggested which will make the interior of the edi fice magnificently grand. The building committee is composed of Mgr. Flynn, chairman, John Wad den, T. J. Lannon, J. J. Fitzgerald, R. B. Fitzgerald. The basement will con tain a chapel in which will bi held ser vices of a minor character, also regular service perhaps in severe winter weath er. It is expected to fully complete the building in about a year, but it will be enclosed and roofed and placed in con dition for use before cold weather sets in this fall. The laying of the corner stone with the usual impressive ceie monies will probably take place in Aug ust. The work of moving the old church from the site will be commenced at once and work on the new structure go on as rapidly as possible. The Daily Leader extends its warm est congratulations to Mgr. Flynn and his church people. For more than twenty-two years lather Flynn has ministered to the Catholic icople of Madison and Lake county. The con gregation is the largest in the city, and through Father Flynn's good offices as a priest the congregation has kept ever devout, the church advancing in mem bership and influence. In the mean ime Father Flynn has grown in influence in the church throughout the state, 1m:' ing raised last year by the Pope to the position of Domestic Prelate to tne Pojie and also last year had charge of the dio cese of the state during Bishop O'Gor man's several months' absence abroad. With these honors bestowed upon him by the church at large, his people and his many friends among the citizens of the state generally, will read with much pleasure that his ambition for a modern cnurcn edifice in the city in which he is spending the best years of his life, is to be gratified As an addition to the city, fiew church building will be of much import ance, being in keeping in appearance with the handsome college buildings that have been erected nere by the state, and as Madison has frequently been re ferred to as a city of churches and schools, our reputation in this respect will be all the more substantial.

Lincoln's Asiassi Suicided at laid* Okia., Jan. 14 La^t St. Louis, June 8.—A special to the Globe-Democrat from Enid, Okla., says: Junius Brutus Booth, the actor and tiephew of John Wilkes Booth, the as. sassin of President Lincoln, has fully identified the remains of the man known as David E. George as his un cle. George, or Booth, committed sul cide here Jan. 14 last and in his ef fects was found a letter directed to K. L. Bates of Memphis, Tenn. Mr. Bates came here at once and fully Identified the body as John Wilkes Booth. He then went East and has obtained positive identification of the remains from the dead man's nephew and from Joseph Jefferson, Miss Clara Morris and a score of others who knew him in his early days. According to Mr. Bates' story he had acted as Booth's confidential agent and attorney for nearly forty years. After Lincoln was shot the assassin escaped to the Garrett plantation in Virginia. According to Mr. Bates the man who was killed was named Rud dy. Being warned Booth left Garrett's and was taken care of by friends in Central Kentucky. He later settled at Glen rose Mills. Tex., where he con ducted a store for several years as John St. Helen. THE HAPPY Real Estate Han Loses Fee But Makes Discontented Far mer Happy. Sioux City Journal: A stoiy is told of a Jasper county farmer who sought out a Newton real estate man to enlist his services. The farmer thought he had decide! to sell out. The agent wrote out a notice offering the farm for sale, fle read it witn some unction to his cmtomer, and the farm er, lookihg a bit puzzled, said: "Read that again." The agent repeated the leading. Then said the farmer: 4'I believe I'll not sell. I've been looking for a place of that kind all my life, and didn't know I had it until you described it to me." The Newton real estate man did a good job, though his commission was doubtless less than he might nave had in mind It is doubtess fiutunate for tne Jasper county farmer that he fell into the hands of an agent of such literary accom plishment. The farmer had been think ing about the bad points of the place. The more he thought about it the more dissatisfied he became. He was not looking at the good points. He had fal len into a mental rut and could not get out without help. It was the business of the agent to take a different view. His thought van to what a customer would be looking for, and these things he set forth. The farmer recognized in it just what he wanted, and no doubt lie returned bom® in a comparatively happy frame of mind. [t is a weakness of men to give their mind to the difficulties ot their situation. The more they study them the largei they appear. They locate all the good things at a distance and out of their lossession. What they ne-xl is the help of some one to pull them out of the tut. It is just as easy to look on the better side of things, and many a man by doing that has saved himself from much wandering and increasing trouble. BRANDED A3 A LIB. Ptfry Heath Replies to Statement of Postal Employe. Washington, June 3.—Postmaster General Payne has made public the letter of former First Assistant Post master General I'erry S. Heath in re ply to the charges made by S. W. Tul loch of this city, ex-cashier of the Washington postofilcts, and also the statement of a Mrs. Winans, formerly of Ohio, who is quoted as saying that she was carried upon the rolls of the Washington post off ice with the under standing that she was pot to render service to the government. Regarding the latter statement Mr. Heath says: "I never appointed any person to any position or retained any one in any position at any time with any sort of notion or ii'ea that he or she was not to render full and honest service to the government for the pay re ceived. The intimation that there was 'an honorary roll,' upon which per sons were placed for political, per sonal or other purposes than good service, is a pure invention. It is a lie out of whole cloth, as are most of the imputations of Tulloch. If any persons were so appointed or retained it was through their own dishonest designs. "There was a period extending over many months when many more men were demanded for service in Cuba. Porto Rico and at military camps in our country than we could supply. We drew through larger postofflces for men from the classified service, re ceiving many, but when responses from postofflces ceased to be sufficient we drew names from aplicants outside classified service and conscientiously selected those whose capability and character wo deemed best established, la this hurried work of appointments, hurried dispatch of men and materials to scenes of action, some mistakes were made of course, some confidences as to integrity blasted, but these things occur and will so long as men live."

The three Spanish caravels which have lain for months almost forgotten in a Jackson park lagoon at Chicago are to be sold to the highest bidder, says the Chicago Record-Herald. With the repliens of Columbus' vessels will also be sold the statue of the discover er that once "adorned" the lake front, but which in recent years lias ignomin iously reposed among the heaps of ref use at the Washington park barns. This was the decision reached the oth er day by the South park itoard and vas brought about through the receipt a letter from a man signing himself tain M. Sehuenniann, North Clark street." The captain stated that he had lost his own boat and asked the board to sell him the largest of the tlnve decaying caravels. This inspired Commissioner Jefferson Ilodgkins with the idea of disposing of all the weatherbeaten craft, and he of fered a resolution to that effect. This reminded Superintendent Foster of the big discarded statue. Some one else re called the abandoned bicycles In anoth er shed, and others had various old rubbish included in the resolution. Then Commissioner Ilodgkins had a brilliant idea. "We'll have a rummage sale," said he, "an auction sale like they have at these bric-a-brac places downtown. You can sell anybody any thing at an auction sale, especially a woman. 80 ami I guess we can get rid of a little matter of three caravels, a bronze statue and other things. We'll hold the sale In the board rooms here and serve pink tea to draw the ladles. Then If anybody insists 011 seeing what they are buying I'll take them around and show them the bulky things." There are a number of desirable things among the furnishings of the caravels which have been well taken care of. Replicas of Spanish spears, lances and armor of the fifteenth cen tury will be especially an attractive bait for the artistically inclined and the lovers of antiquities.
