It has not been profitable for the buyers, but the farmers have appreciated the freak more highly than the buyers. There are two new grain buyers in the town, who insisted upon getting their share of the market, which the old buyers would not concede. Hence the competi tion. The town has a population of about 700, and is about to Incorporate and as sume the proud title of "city." It is thought probable that an artesian well will oe bored here within a few weeks, siuce the wonderful well nt Handel's place, only 156 feet deep and a short distance from (he town, affords ample encouragement. This well was bored to the depth above mentioned simply to afford a sufficient supply of water* for stock, without a thought of striking flowing water but a sudden rush of water to the to]), like a spouting geyser, sent the farmer in haste ior a stronger pipe with which to harness the critter down. SCHOOL PRIVILEGES WANTED. In February. 138", President Arthur issued a proclamation declaring Crow Creek and Wiunebago reservations open to settlement. A large number of people immediately came in and took up the land. After Cleveland's inauguration he with drew the lands from the market and or dered all settlers off, but large numbers are still living on the lands and are now circulating a petition reciting the facts and concluding: "Owing to the present title of the land we reside upon, we can not have schqpls and other advantages which w.e highly prize. We pray the president of the United States or congress, in the com ing session, to open these lands to settle ment to actual settlers, that our needs may be supplied by securing titles to our homes .and schools for our children, as we are upon lands wholly unoccupied and not in any way used by the Indians." REAL ESTATE BOOM AT HURON. A ten-acre tract of land at Huron is be ing negotiated for by a number of Minne apolis parties. It adjoins the city and the purchasers propose to at once lay out the grounds, put out trees and shrubbery in the spring and build twenty residences. Each house will be' provided with water from an artesian well, heated with sttam and lighted by electricity. Other large sales are on the tapis and several transfers at good figures have been made within the past week. Heal estate men report better business than for several months. MORE ROOM NEEDED. The Presbyterian university at Pierre is so overrun with students that lodging room is now at a premium and arrange ments are on foot for the erection of an other wing or dormitory to the college.

A Girl Blacksmith. Among the exhibits at the San Francisco mechanics' institute fair, few huve more in terest than the dozen horseshoes to the right of the main entrance. These horse shoes, perfectly shaped, haudsoiuely pol ished and withal scientifically correct," are the work of Miss Annie Bole, aged 15 years. Miss Bole is the daughter of a teamster and lives in the rear of a blacksmith shop at 911 Battery street, kept by a man named Walsh. It was in this shop than an Ex aminer reporter found her yesterday. Walsh said that the young lady had been taught by him, and he was very proud of his pupil. "I've seen dozens that tried it," he said, but none of 'em had the nateral talent for making horseshoes that the young leddy's got. Mis' Huntington, that's worth tier forty millions, made a good offer at it, but couldn't quite do it. There ain't a man •this side of lamuon that could make horseshoes like that young leddy." At the blacksmith's request. Miss Bole made a horseshoe then and there. A piece of round iron was cut off by Mr. Walsh, and Miss Bole rolled up her sleeves, thereby revealing a rather small arm, tied on a leather apron and plunged the iron into the fire. The young lady is about five feet three inches high and rather fragile than strong. She brushed the hair back from a laughing face, and soon the hammer was ringing on the red iron with a true sound. She made the crease in the shoe, turned it into shape like a veteran, regardless of the flying sparks, drove the nail holes, and finally turned out as fine a shoe as ever graced the foot of a race-horse. For Miss Bole will have nothing to do with shoes for ordinary dray horses, but confines her self exclusively to the finer shoes of com position or polished iron. Miss Bole said that she first became ani mated with the idea of making horseshoes by watching the blacksmith. Finally she asked him to let her try it, and he was so much pleased with her first effort that he showed her all he knew, and the result was the exhibit at the Mechanics' institute. She says that she will not make any practical use of her Accomplishments, though she seemed anxious about her ex hibit and several times asked: "Willi have to go out to the fair and make a shoe there before I get anything?" Her in structor confidently expects that she will' take a premium. The horseshoes were filed,'polished and finished in her own little vise, which she keeps in her own room. Mr.- WaKh de clares that he is going to send. one of the horseshoes to the queen of England. MYSTERIOUS MURDER. AIT IOWA GIRT. FOUSD TX CHICAGO WITH HER SKULL CRUSHED. Boodler McDonald Out of Jail and Plain Sailing for McGarigle Predicted—Inflam matory Speeches Made at a Meeting of Chicago Anarchists Another Packing Point in Illinois—Suicide of a French Governess, Etc. LATEST BY TELEGRAPH. g? —At a late hour Saturday night a police man found a young woman, plnlnlydresscd. lying in a pool of blood on the pavement of Grand boulevard near Forty-third "street. Chicago. She was taken to the hospital, where a ghastly wound was discovered in the back of her head. She was unconscious and died in a short time. The police have identified her as Eva Mitchell, ageA 19. She went there from Washington, la., six months ago. and until last month! worked as domestic in a boarding house., Since leaving thoro she has been employed by patent medicine llrm and resided wtth her stepbrother's family. The young wpmnn was undoubtedly murdered, but by whom and for what reason are mysteries the po lice have so far failed to clear up. IThc most important clue to tho murderer Vas obtained from a flagman at the railroad tracks at Fortieth street, who claims inti mate acquaintance with Miss Mitchell. 'Tile says the girl called Saturday ovening at his "shanty" to bid him good-by, snyihg that she was going to be married. She tas in a buggy with a young man whom the flag man thinks he could identify. The polic have been unable to find any trace of tin young msin. Capt. Hunt, of the Hyde Pari police station, informed the police official Monday morning that he had arrested tw men in connection with the murder of Eva Mitchell. He refuses to divulge the names of tho two men. —A Chicago paper of the 19th inst. says: "After seventy-three weeks' imprisonment in the county jail Edward McDonald walked out of the criminal court last evening a free man under $10,000 bonds. Tho formal ity of a bond and the distant prospect of another trial seemed trifles light as air, and the faco of thccx-engineerand boodler were wreathed in smiles. His ride down Clark street partook of the nature of an exile's return'. The long confinement in jail has not decreased McDonald's weight or lessened apparently the number of his friends. With them the question o/ tho convicted man's guilt was apparently never considered it was enough to know that he was a 'mighty good fellow in hard luck.' He was welcomed back- to freedom and treated like a prince. One of tho at torneys for the boodler said: 'McGarigle can now come back to Chicago, shake hands with Sheriff Matson, spend a few days in jail and walk out a free man. Mc Garigle got away while his motion for a now trial was pending. While he has boon away McDonald has taken up the case at his own expense and decided it in Mc Garige's favor. It is a huge joke, it means an absolute dischargo for both men.'" —The anarchists of Chicago aro appar ently preparing to put on their war paint again. A mooting was hold Monday night at Thalia hall. 036 Milwaukee avenue. Pictures of tho executed anarchists cov ered the walls of the assembly room and a bust of Llngg occupied a prominent posi tion. A man named Sehman, who acted as secretary, addressed the meeting. He is an out-and-out anarchist. His speoeh was from beginning to end an argument in fa vor of the use of force. Voting, he said, was useless. Even if they secured a ma jority it would do them no good, us the capitalists would run things as they ploased. Revolution must come soon, and he urged its speedy approach. Their only salvation was in the use of arms. He qd vised the appointment of a secret commit tee to perfect secret organization all over tho eity, A Mr. Dainmeyer followed in an ill-tempered speech, advising the use of the ballot. Let them strive with that, and if that failed it was then time enough to adopt another course. One Lindemeycr spoke for force. Ho was in favor of the use of arms from the outset. Ho devoted a good doal of time to abusing the spies whom ho said were sent to tho meetings by the capitalistic pross of the city. Even at Sunday's meeting he said there were spies from some of tho papers and those he roundly abused. Tho question of how to attract laborers was discussed but no con clusion reached, and the meeting ad journed until next week. Of tho seventy live persons present about one-quarter were women, one of them acting as pre sding officer. —The slaughtering season has begun in Galena, and will bo continued during the winter. It is estimated that from 200,000 to 250,0(0 hogs will bo packed there before spring. Notwithstanding the fact that hogs are scare this fall prices 1 are low and bid fair to continue so. According to leading packers there the principal cause of this state of things is the damage sustained uy i.y tho export trade on account of the vas't quantity of adulterated lard that is shipped abroad and tho great diminution in the consumption of pure lard at home. —A Butte, M.

United States Marshal Des mond. of Clinton, was in that city early in the week and has been at work quietly procuring writs of ejectment on nine ten ants of tho Litchfleld lands. These will bo sorted in the immediate future by the marshal's force and a largo corps of depu ties who are now in that city for that pur pose. These will be followed by wholesale evictions on all other lands. Within the present month steps will be tuken to see that lands are not again occupied by the settlers. Thiscrentos great consternation, as many settlors havo spent their all contesting the title to tho land, and if turned out with their families at the commencement of winter must look to charity for support So strong has been tho conviction of the average settler that the land he settled upon, improved, and, in some cases, se cured a government patent for. is his beyond a shadow of doubt, that In most every case there has been more or less trouble when the time came for him to leave af the behest of tho river land com pahy. For a number of years very little has boon done toward forcing out tho ob stinate tonants, but of late the Company has been growing impatient and now pro poses to evict every settler along the Des Moines river who has not settled matters or abandoned tho farm. Whatever the rights of the matter may be the company has the law on its side, and it looks as though tho settlers would have to go. but tho present proceedings aro heartily con demned by all as most inhuman. —Capt. ,T.
