Oawcr, of the Dubuque Herald, was in town Monday. Pam E. aad Chas. H. Day Lave gone to Kansas to look over the country. Mrs. C. P. Slough, of Filmore, Mo., is in town, visiting with her daughter, Mrs. Will J . Wenili. i P. Peebles, the grocer, started for " Wisconsin Monday. Ho will bo absent a week or ten days. Hon. Win, Barrett, of Lincoln, was m town Monday. He reports crops down his way as looking finely. Mrs. Mary j), Clark, who has been Uniting iu Peoria for the past three months, returned to Lemars last week. Mr. aud Mrs. Bam Greenwald returned from Independence last Saturday. It is so exceedingly dry in that poition of the state that the people cannot tell the truth. Lem Fairehild and H. W. VanSickcl left for Cunven, Kansas, Monday morning, going by rail. Harry aad Sanford VanSiekel started for the same point with a team. Beuj. R. Powell, of Dubuque, agent for the wholesale drug house of But- rough Bros., Baltimore, is in town, the guest, of V/. H. Dent, Esq. Mr. Powell and Mr. Dent are old- time friends, having been intimate acquaintance and associates back in Illinois. C. Richard Smead, late of the Sioux City Tribune, was in town Monday. Dick is feeling happy over hi.-; release from newspaper work, aud asserts that he will never re- engage in that line. About the first of June he will start for Chicago, to take a position in the J. M. W, Junes printing establishment. - A few week's since, Prof. WernU's paper, the Yt 'arte, endeavored to explain the cause of the tramp mania that is cursing our land, and the conclusion arrived as was that parental neglect was at the bottom of the whole matter— that allowing hoys to roam the streets when they should be iu bchool was a prolific couT. e of trampicii and tramps. We con cur. wit'a the learned professor so far us he goes, but we mutt inform him that he stopped far short of where, as a journalist „ nd an educator, he should. A few days since wo v. era in Prof. Welch's store, aud in looking over the stock of literary ware displayed there, we came upon a lot of that most pernicious kind — the foul, obscene trash that is sapping the very life- blood of ijiis nation— Police News, Police Gazette, Nickel Libraries, and a lot of other trash that is uaiit for the bunds of • men, much more so for the young boys who are feeding upon it. The rush on Saturday for papers of this class at Prof. Wernii'a store was immense, and we noticed boys of thirteen years and upwards poring over the contents with ill- concealed delight. Prof. Wernli, and all other dealers in this sort ot literature, are doing big work to make tramps and outlaws, though we admit, they do it thoughtlessly. We p. » n this item with much hesitancy, but k U a ilut- y that must be periornied. Wo sincerely hope we (. hall not be called n » on in tho future to say more concern ing k- Republican County (/( invention. The Republicans of Plymouth county will meet iu convention at LeMars, on Saturday, May 81, 1- 599, at one o'clock p. m., for tho purpose of selecting live deiegat. es to attend the State convention of the Republican party, to bo held at DesMciues, June 11, 1879, to nominate State officers to succeed those whose terms of cilice expire January 1, 1830. The ratio of representation iu said convention will be one delegate for each township and in addition thereto, one delegate for each fifteen votes or fraction over one- half, cast for lion. J. A. T.

The meteor which passed over this region on Saturday, the lOlhinst., struck the ground about two miles north of Eslbervillc, making a hole fifteen feet d e e p nnd ten feet across. From the Northern Vindicator. whose editor, Frank Davey, Esq., visited the spot, wo take the following: " The parties that commenced digging for it have excavated a place 14 feut d e e p , and havo f o u n d what is supposed t o be the main b o d y of the meteor, hes i d e s a considerable number of small pieces. Last Mi n d a y afternoon they took out a p i e c e iixl'J inches and about three i n c h e s in thickness, a n d last Tues d a y t h e y succeeded in getting t h e l a r ge piece, w h i c h Weighed 4151 p o u n d s . It w a s thought by several persons that at the time the above described meteor fell, another one f e l l just across t h e river west of t o w n , and last. Wednesday the report was confirmed by the ( hiding of one of the A. A.

A Republican member of the Ohio dele gation, who is intimate at tho Whita House, remarked to your correspondent to- night that the president does not take kindly to tho suggestion that Sherman will leave the cabinet aud enter Ohio politics. It is the president's earnest desire t9 make his cabinet co- existant with the ad ministration, and he is so well pleased with his present ofllclals that ha would not willingly hear to any of them leaving, much less Sherman, who by his unprecedented financial ability has made him self a bulwark of strength to the adniin- The Republicans of Stanton township j j s tration.

T. P. Auge, a printer, got full of bugjuice Friday evening, in Siou;: City, and determined to take in the sights or. Second street. He tried to enter Ida Allen's sacred precincts, but she resented such familiarity, drawing a revolver on Auge, and letting drive, the ball striking between the thumb and fast finger of the unfortunate printer's right hand, going through that member, and lodging hi the shirt near the collar bone.

Judge Beck has been an honorable, honest jurist, an upright man, who cannot be. approached by bribery, and in consequence of his rectitude the railroad inletc. sl. s are demanding his defeat.

Tne case of Attorney- General Devens, is cited, who Was anxious to leave, but the president was equally anxious that ho • dituiid stay, and after some hesitation Devens yielded.

These evil influences are terrible; can't something be done to remove them ? MASSACIUSICTTS is haying most uncommonly bad luck' with her new stale prison. In tho first place, and of course, it cost n good deal more than anybody expected ; then some prisoners celebrated their occupancy of the so called " strong cells" by breaking light out of them ; next the v.- oiUsliopn burned down, and the pleasant discovery was made that there were no adequate facilities for extinguishing a big lire ; llaally on Saturday the new workshops, only recently completed, were found in ( lames, and about - v - 5 , 0 0 0 worth of damage was done before the ( ire was got under control. Tnis latest fire was due to the explosion of an incendiary shell in one of the worl:. phop(=, which had been so arranged as to go oil j u s t after the prisoners went to dinner. This confirms previous indications that things are iu a very bud way in the institution, and is strengthening the demaud for a new warden. Certainly Massachusetts couldn't have much worse luck with her prison than ." he has had tho last few months.
