A pied form sent the Center Point Lotus to press with the loss of half its fruit.

The Independence Bulletin says: “Like the majority of Western towns, Dubuque is experiencing a temporary depression of business, and has quite a number of store rooms lacking occupants in her principal streets.”

A Dubuque man who has foully deserted his wife and four children, leaving them penniless and without bread, is spoken of by the Dubuque Telegraph as a “gentleman.” But what follows plainly indicates that the Telegraph doesn’t believe he is.

A farmer named Kreiger, residing in Bremer County, was returning home from Independence on the night of the 30th. One mile north of Independence the horses left the highway and fell into a railway cut. The wagon was overturned on the driver, and the horses fell on their sides in a pool of two feet of water. Both man and horses were found dead in that position on Saturday.

Mason City Express: “Willis Noyes, who last week went before the examining board at West Point for cadetship has returned, having failed to pass physical examination. His speedy return was unexpected by his friends, he having so creditably passed the physical and mental examination before the board at Charles City. There is not a finer specimen of vigorous young American in the Northwest than the rejected candidate, and the action of the board in rejecting him is unaccountable.”
