Mayor Moe Wen has called our attention to the fact which we have mentioned before that Ninny Young people who attend Church and especially in Tho evening Are in Tho habit of disturb-1 ing the services by whispering and other i decorous actions. He is no less shocked than we arc by such want of veneration and decorum and asks us to condemn it in Tho severest terni9, which we live no hesitancy in doing. It is bad enough at a show a Politica meeting or other Public entertainment in fact inexcusable but in a Church it is simply ridiculous and we wonder try by one. Old or Young ifs any regard for the feelings of others if not for themselves should engage in what is so annoying to those who go to Church with reverential feelings and to hear the exercises and be benefited by them. It is not smart it gives no character except a bad character and is by far More demoralizing to the parties engaged in it than to any Ono else because it is a pernicious habit that like All other bad habits leads downward and nut upward. Perhaps the disturbance is hardly sufficient to Call for Legal action but it is sufficient to Call for Public condemnation. We to. Lievow it is done thoughtlessly without really intending to harm any one but it is none he. Less a Nui Saneo on that account and is noticed by All Well disposed people in the congregation and they As Well is the minister Are sorely annoyed by it. Don t do it any More. Don t do it for your own Sakes and for the Sake of your neighbors and friends. If you have no veneration for the sacredness of the place and the occasion have a Little veneration for others and for yourselves. To to gentle men worthy of respect you must treat others with respect. There is a plenty of time after the hour of service Aud be. Fore to talk with Lour friends without encroaching upon the hour of worship who knows if you would ivc close attention to the exercise but you might barn to enjoy them and acquire an interest in and a taste for them try the Experiment and you certainly will be none the worse for in and von will gain the respect of All by so doing.

The Waukon Iron mines which were to have been leased Anil worked Are again at a stand still occasioned by the refusal of some of the parties owning Tho land to lease it on terms agreeable to the parties desiring to lease it.

Rather Early for this latitude without their of a hot bed or rain. A we did t get our usual Sprinkle last saturday but we got it sunday and monday evenings almost As much is n in in on y that and nothing More. It seems that sheriff Leithold wrote a letter of resignation before leaving and the Board of supervisors has appointed Joseph Hub Corkern of new Ai Biu to fill the vacancy. He is a son in Law of a former sheriff m. Palmer. He is unknown at least in this Section of Tho county. We should have supposed that Tho Board won i have appointed some Well known and prominent Man under the circumstances. La in we have out Job work done up and Are now ready for another Boom in that direction. Rut we Hope it will not All come at. Once As it did last Wees. The c. M. & st. P. R. R.

It is refreshing to Tho country where they struck to read of copious Rains ill Tho Way from Dubuque to Waterloo but it Don t irrigate the a sention Worth a cent. No. 2, of the Little Mcgregor Ivory called the postal clerk comes to hand nearly filled with a tirade of a Buse of Tho re View for dating to intimate that Tho in. P. Service is in a bad condition. We have neither time nor Braco to devote to its silly vap Oring Anil Loyo stories. It Don t take a very intelligent Man Evon outside Tho enchanted orc to of Tho r. P. O. To know that Tho mails Are not delivered anything like As promptly is they used to to and All Tho round about slosh that May to indulged in amounts to nothing. Remember to make no partisan charge in this Maltor. It is simply Tho putting of inexperienced men into positions that require years of training to become Jiro Fie out in. If to feel like it to May puncture a few of the ludicrous positions taken by Tho postal clerk in our not Itsvo. Sheriff Loi Bokl abscond. As intimated last week Allam Koo county has finally had the experience that a few other counties of Tho state have passed through that of having a. Defaulting county officer. The news reached Here As Early As wednesday afternoon but up to thursday night when our forms were closed the panic ulars were not sufficiently Deli Nito to warrant a disclosure. Neither of the Waukon papers mentioned the matter at All even by intimation last week and hence we hoped there might be a Silver lining to the Cloud but by Friday night Tho particulars were sufficiently known to make it certain that the Sher ill had left for parts unknown and that he was a defaulter to the county and to private individuals to a Large a Muiir. No Row is Una known pfc our last advices the liability of Tho Bonds men was Only about ,600, or a Little less but whether the Lull amount in known or not we do not know. Tho Bondsmen Are All in Postville and Aro As follows j. S. Molt r. N. Douglass Conrad Thoma we. Thoma and de Sheehy. Or. C. Thoma lost some $900 on the failure of Tho firm of Leithold Bros and this second loss comes on him with a double Force. It is supposed that Tho sex sheriffs private debts by far exceed Tho deficit to Tho county. In fact his total shortage is estimated at from 8,000 to $10,000. It seems to has for some Tirao been borrowing Money of every Man and woman who would listen to his appeals and what to has done with it All no Ono knows Aud even conjecture is guarded. That it has not nil been used legitimately is evident because Tho salary of his office night to have maintained him even in o extravagant manner in which to d. 1 he fact that to was bankrupt Hen he was elected and owed heavily May account for it in a Masuro. Undoubtedly his creditors kept crowding him when he got into office and to a. Pease them he May have borrowed Money of voter to pay others hint at option speculations. Rut Howo Vor it May be it is bad enough and suffer cars by it have our sympathy. It is pos ibo that Tho Waukon papers this week May throw some further Light on Tho matter in which event we shall give it to our renders. Upper now a University. At Tho suggestion of Tho president of Tho school and by permission of the review we give the report of Tho visiting committee of which we acted As Secretary we the visiting committee have done the work assigned by the conference and Ore pleased to make a most favourable report of Tho examination of the classes. We cannot speak to High by of the interest manifested by both professors and students in the studies of Tho oar and the thorough mental discipline to which the latter have been subjected. Tho upper Iowa University is indeed entering upon a new Era in its history and we Boli Evo a More promising Ono than Over before. The moral tone of Fayette Tho absence of saloons the new boarding Hall already in Uso by lady students the one under construction for Young men and Tho High Grade of work Dono in the recitation room Are great inducements for parents to Send their children to this school. Site commend the University to nil who May wish thorough work at Small we might add a word concerning commencement what to saw and Hoard. First to started monday evening to hear Tho concert of vocal and inst. Mental music under prof. Ruggles but was prevented by a now duty being assigned us on Tho Way much to our regret. However we left the work Long enough to learn that Tho concert was a Success. Tuesday passed away very rapidly while to enjoyed the recitations also wednesday Forenoon. Five members of the committee divided the work among themselves. On tuesday evening Throe Young gentleman and two Young ladies entered the contest for the Sara Fawcett prize"-$-10.00 the orations were Good and did Honor to Tho contestants. Miss Minnie Reed of Waukon won the prize. Ono of i Ost Ville s boys John Staadt in a class of 30, secured second prize for botanical up cimons. His is a very Fine Ellec Tion. Wednesday evening Hon. J. P Dolliver delivered the annual address subject the Public virtue of politics to is Ono of Tho loading republicans of Tho state and Ono of the most eloquent yet denounced the Saloon in terms that would have done Honor to a fanatical prohibitionist. Thursday was commencement seven graduates finished their College course and Are now ready to learn something about life. At two o clock Thoro was an educational mass coating gov. Larrabee presiding. Tho governor spoke in highest terms of Tho University and pro Pho sled its ultimate Succes. He is a trus Tec and Liberal supporter of Tho school or. S. G Smith of st. Paul followed in a splendid Appeal for education showing that it is within the Roach of Tho Young Man or woman who is determined to have it. That an educated brain is of Oqual value to a Mechanic As to the professional Man.
