Kent, Iowa, May 15, 1884. Ed. New Era—Dear Sir:—Leaving Albion Monday evening. May 12, we arrived in Chicago in time for the fast train on the C. B. & Q-, which made splendid time. Leaving Chicago at noon, we crossed the Mississippi river at Burlington before it was quite dark, in the evening of the same afternoon. Here I was much surprised to thousands of acres of almost worthless land on the Illinois side of the river. The first bottoms of the river here are many miles wide, and we seemed to be crossing one stream after another until we reached the Mississippi. The first part of Illinois is a level plain divided into beautiful farms, diversified with thrifty towns and beautiful villages, with here and there a gentle slope and meandering streams thro'h wooded banks. Before reaching Galesburg the country becomes quite rolling, and presents a beautiful appearance. From here on to the river it continues to be quite level. The surface of the eastern part of Iowa resembles that of Illinois, but from the middle of the state until we reach Crestón is very rolling. Crestón is the highest point on our line between the lÚQssissippi and the Missouri rivers. It is a city of about 9,000, and contains the shops of the C. B. & Q. The farms on this dividing ridge are rich and productive. It ranks among the great cattle, pork and com producing sections of southwestern Iowa. In this locality we are stopping for a short time. All along the line of our route, spring-work is as far advanced as in Noble county. On arriving in Iowa I saw some corn that was up which looked well. There was quite a frost the morning that I arrived here, bat I think will do but little damage. Vegetation and pasture through Illinois seemed more advanced Üian in Noble county. At no season of the year could the traveler be better impressed with the west than at the present one. After a long and on-usually cold winter spring seems to have done hw best to bring forth all nature arrayed in hoU4ay attire, and Democratic speakers and writers have exhausted argument and reasoning in their effort to head off the movement looking to the suppression of the liquor traffic in this country, and as he sees the tendency of public sentiment in Missouri toward a higher plane of morals in that state, the lunatic who once published the notorious "Okalona States," but who is now at the head Of an anti-prohibition paper at St Louis, uses the following language against temperance advocates. He says in a recent number of his paper: If prohibition passes, take down your shotguns and shoot the damned heart out of the hateful thing. The Cincinnati mob will be a Tame and Trifling Circumstance to the popular uprising that will take place in Si Louis if a prohibitive law is passed. If the prohibitive people triumph let them look out for the Torch and Ax Of the Avengers. If they ruin the vast commercial interests at stake in this temperance contest, they will read the price of their victory by the light of their burning business houses. To arrest a man for drunkenness is to deny a fundamental principle of self-sovereignty, without which liberty becomes A mockery and A myth; And, therefore, these arrests should be resisted by the victim on the spot, or vigorously revenged as soon as he is free. * * * * ^ If ballots cannot defeat prohibition, it will be defied by bullets. Mark that, ye Mummers and Mountebanks Of the Brooks persuation, and mark it well, before you drive the personal liberty people to desperation and cause the streets of St. Louis to run red with blood. A SENSATION. A Lively Scene in Jail. Butler, the Wife-INurderer in Possession of a Revolver. The Columbia City Daily Post contained the following one day last week: This forenoon, while attorneys Booth, Powell and Adair were in the jail, consulting, Sheriff Allwein and Deputy Goodfellow rushed into the jail, and the former, calling Butler to one side, reached down inside his (Butler's) vest and drew forth a re volver. Allwein—"That's a jwetty thing for you, Charley! Where did you get it?" Butler—"I got it from the fellow you put in last evening." The attorneys gathered around the sheriff, and while handUng the re rolver the cylinder fell to the jail floor in such a manner as to ^s charge all the cartridges. Adair was near, and the bullets whistled uncomfortaltly near his head. Where the revolver came from is not kno^ but a pretty good ^ess could easily be made. Bc^r will be carefully guarded hereafter. —Harkless will have his branch gallery ready for opening to the pub lie next Saturday. Th^ ordering cabinet photos on that day will ge i $400 piet^ues for 13.50, and 25 cents off regular price ixx cfurds. A LURID RED. That was the Hue Two Noble County Chaps wanted to Paint the Town. Two WAWAKA LOCALS. bt v-mo-iib. The Aubu' n Courier last week said that "last Thursday two young men, hailing from Noble county, drove over here and put their team in A. W. Allen's livery bam. They had hoard of "sweet Auburn, loveliest village of the plain, where health and plenty crown the laboring swain," as Goldsmith . says. They evidently thought this a nice town, but tastes differ as to details, and their idea seems to have been that proper taste was not shown as to the tints. It needed painting, and in their fervid imaginations no tint would be so becoming as red, a bright, firey red. And, as no one of our native population seemed to be getting ready to undertake the job of painting the town, they set ateut doing it themselves. Their industry was worthy a better cause, but did not seem to be appreciated by our citizens. The fellows had filled up pretty full before getting to town. Had probably had a bottle of some cooling draught along with them, for they made themselves conspicuous at once. They wanted to buy the Clark stallion that bit a man's thumb off last year, but not finding him they concluded to go to Hollister's and get their dinner. While there they became abusive, wanted beer and made themselves foul-mouthed generally, and were sent out with a "flea in their ear." They tackled Loutzenheiser in his saloon and wanted to lick him because he would not give them anything to drink. They had a racket with Ed. Eldridge on the same subject as they also did in the drugstore of Casebeer and Matheny and at the Swineford House. Everywhere they went they wanted whisky, and on being refused made the air blue with foul profanity. They dared the authorities and defied anyone to arrest them. Several parties tried to have them get their team and go home. They finally got the team out and hitched it on the west side of the public square, but then concluded they must have a stirrup cup tq start home on. With this in view they went again to Eldridge's saloon and on being refused tried to help themselves and began to raise the "devil" generally. Marshal Treesh was called in and attempted to arrest them, but they were bo^ strong, active and desperate and fought like tigera They struggled to get out at the back door, but he managed to keep them in, though both were fighting him at the same time. Tarney and Charley Emanuel hearing the racket came in to assist Sheriff Boyle was also called, and Mr. Hallam and others came to the rescue. On seeing the enemy approaching, the scamps tried to get out of the back door but could not get through, and were promptly collared by the sheriff and marshal and their help. A fierce fight took place, blood flowed freely bom various knocks, kicks and hair-pulling on every side. But they had to go. They fought clear across the street through the courtyard and up the jail steps. They even resisted after being taken into a cell. They were badly used up and the sheriff and marshal bore a good many thumps and scratches. The prisoners soon wilted and wanted to go home, but Prosecutor Peterson told them there was no especial hurry. They gave their names as Clinton and Frederick Finley, and said they lived on the old Wheeler farm, northwest of Avil-la. Their father is well off and the older of the two is married. They were kept imtil the next day, when they were released on giving bonds the older one giving $500 and the yoimger $300, with their father as security. They went home very much wiser than when they came, and seemed rather penitent. The officers here have the good opinion of the whole community for the prompt and fearless way in which they dealt with the drunken hoodlums, and the latter probably will allow our town to remain in its present color, and not DBOORATIOM DAY.

Billy may possibly be chief cook and bottle-washer yet The Merchants' Telegraph line has four wires, and the company are now adding six more to it This gives Wawaka 20 wires running through town. This time Joe Steinberger got bit by the roof-painting swindlers. He is out just fifty dollars and not even a brush applied to his barn. Will farmers never learn to quit signing papers for strangers? Well, I'll just be mashed if somebody will send me a lovely letter, would never squeal and try and palm it off on somebody else. If it was part sugar I would take it that way, and if it was part love, I would snicker over it The two ladies who moved to Home City recently were cheeky enough to send word to our trustee to meet them, with a conveyance, at Brimfield on Wednesday for the purpose of returning to Wawaka, but he failed to connect Served them right We have a county poor-house; let 'em seek for it There will be a meeting at the courthouse to-morrow (Friday) night to make further preparations for memorial services on Decoration Day.
