The Fort Dodge , lown , Dally Ohroir Iclo of Saturday , November 1) ) , gives an interesting sketch of the Central Iowa Mutual Fire association of which 0. B. Holahan , formerly of this city , la secre tary. The association was orgnni/.ed in 1808 , 1ms 250 agencies nnd is operating in every county in Iowa. The nssooln- tion fools especially proud of its homo endorsement , having over 100 policies with Fort Dodge people among whom are the leading business men of the city. The General has not an unsettled loss on its books. The excellent record and standing of the company is readily conceded coded by Norfolk people who know the secretary , nro cognizant of his business ability and judge the othir olllcors by his standard. Ponder Republic : The fatal termina tion of ono of the smallpox patients in the Lemmon homo emphasizes the no- comity of grout caution on the pint of our people. It makes no difference that some are unwilling to admit that the malady is smallpox. Competent physi cians here and elsewhere have positively declared that it is smallpox. The health of the community is fnr more essential thnn that somebody's opinion , formed without any knowledge of diseases whatever , should bo respected. The rights of the community are bound to bo and must bo respected. The com munity has been greatly endangered bv the willful commingling among our people , of persons coming from families having the discnse , which Is no loss than criminal and should bo treated ns such. A set of agents nro canvassing Nor folk on n scheme thnt has very much the appearance of a fake and people will probably do well to require the fulfill ment of tholr generous offer before partIng - Ing with their money. For n cash con sideration of $1) ) in installments these gouoroiiH people propose to give nine books nnd a number of nrt premiums besides allowing their patrons to cheese a handsome piece of furniture , which if of nny vnluo whatever , is worth moro than the entire price asked forbookspio- tures and furniture. People will do well to remember that no firm or com pany , it matters not how generous , can alVord to give Bomothiug for nothing. It is said that these agents have refused a number of offers to soil tholr goods to reliable business men nnd nccopt cash on delivery , which is pretty J good ground for suspicion , Notice.

'Ho showed how that this woik is wrought by the siicran.onts of Christ's appoint- nient nnd how that the apostolic in in1 istry is a logical and necessary require ment for the work of the church.

" Ho advocated as the best basis of assessment for the necessary ex penses of the diocese n pro ratn tax npou the parochial income rather than a per capita tax. This scorned to bo the prevailing - vailing sentiment of all the clergy pros- out. Mr. J. B. Mnylard who wns re quested to speak from the layman's point of view endorsed the plan advo cated by Rev. Mr. Moody. A bnsiuoss session followed the dis cussion , nt which nu invitation to hold the next convocation in Falls City was ncceptcd. Various committees were ap pointed.

Astronomers who wore looking for a grand meteoric shower last year now consider that tholr figuresj may have been off n yenr nud are , preparing to take account of the ' phenomenon this fall. If the event happens it is ex pected that it will begin tonight , per- haps'tibout 1 to It o'clock , nnd may be continued for three or four nights fol [ . lowing. It is expected that the earth will pass through or near the Leouis during that time aud n grnud displny of celestial fireworks that will seoiug is anticipated. The oveut is one of a lifo-tiuio ns it takes place at inter vals of ! ili years. No doubt ] there are many i Norfolk people who would like to see i it aud n number hnvejinnde arrange ments to keep vigil , but that all may see it who do not wish to ] stay up till that time Mayor Koenigsteln has ar ranged to give notice by sounding the flro whistle or ringing the fire boll , or both , if there is a displny worth seeing , but cnro will bo taken that it does not resemble a fire alarm.

Cherlff Cook and Deputy Are Them selves Made Prisoners Forced to Promise Immunity From Arrest. Farmer's Wife Used as Shield. Topckn , Kan. , Nov. 11. Sheriff Cook of this county and Deputy Slier- Iff Williams were capturoil by two es caped convicts from the Fort Leaven- worth military prison yesterday after noon at Pauline , flvo miles south of Topeka , nnd held prisoners In the fnrm housa of n man named Woostcr for several hours. They finally es- caped between n line of police sent from Topeka to reinforce the sheriff and nro now nt largo. BoMi were slightly wounded. Woostor was badly wounded by one of the convicts when he tried to flro on Ihom. Mrs. heW Woostor and Sheriff Cook were hold before the convicts as a shield by the prisoners in making their escape. A posse is in pursuit. At 2:30 : p. in. some farmer boys near Pauline learned that the convicts were In the neighborhood. Hastily forming a posse armed with target rifles , pistols and clubs , they gave chaso. Neither of the convicts was armoil nnd they wcro unnblo to make a stnnd. Later Sheriff Cook and De puty Williams arrived. Coming upon the convicts , both officers llrcd , wounding the men , but not disabling thorn. The convicts then Hod through n small opening In the timber and ran _ . Into the house of Farmer Woostor. Sheriff Cook telephoned to/Topeka for assistance and then took up the chase. Thinking that the convicts had run around the house , Cook darted through the open door , Intending to surprise thorn nt the roar door. But Instead of this , the convirts bad gone Into the house and the officer almost fell Into their nrms. Sheriff Gives Up His Gun. Sheriff Cook was ordoreil to give up his gun , which ho did. Deputy Will- lams by this time had reached the house and entered without knowing what had happened Inside , and ho , too , was made captive by the con- In the meantime Chief Stahl of To- pckn with eight officers wore on the way. They arrived nt the Wooster house about an hour after the officers had been Imprisoned. Chief Stahl Im mediately began negotiations with the convicts to give up their prisoners nnd to surrender themselves , but the convicts only laughed. Farmer Woos ter then managed to get a gun and was about to make an attack on the convicts when one of them laid him low with a blow from the butt of a re- volver tnken from one of their cap tives. The convict broke Wooster's right hand nnd cut a gash in his head. One of the convicts told Sheriff Cook that bo would bo killed If he made the slightest move looking to- ward their capture. In the meantime - time , the police officers on the outside had surrounded the building , but were nfrald to make a move for fear that Cook and Williams would suffer. Walk Off Unmolested. Mrs. Woostcr had fainted during the excitement. She finally revived and nt 7 o'clock the convicts placed the woman and Sheriff Cook In front of thorn ns shields and made for the door. Then , after exacting a promise from the sheriff that he would not permit any of the officers to fire itn them , they started for the open. As they left the house with the frlght- to cnod farmer , wife and the submissive sheriff before them , the convicts passed between a cordon of police , who could have easily captured them : , and started for the railroad track. The sheriff had In turn exacted a promise from the police that they would not molest the convicts and they did not. After covering n considerable dis tance down the track , the convicts : suddenly disappeared through a hedge ; fence , bidding the officers n mocking farewell. One of the police sergeants - geants later said ho could have easily touched the leading convict with his hand as ho passed. The convicts had secured a good start before the officers had recovered from tholr surprise. Then some of the policemen wanted to pursue , but Sheriff Cook would not permit It , as ho had promised the convicts Imraunl- ty from arrest. Sheriff Stahl left some of his men ; on the sccno and with the others started back to Topeka to take up the chase later on. The convicts are well armed , having taken all the guns In the farm house , Including those of the sheriff and his deputy. They are both white men , but their Identity was not learned. * Sheriff Cook arrived from Pauline nt 10 o'clock last night. Ho was somewhat disfigured and his clothes were ragged , but ho had lost none of his ncrvo by his usage at the hands of the convicts. In telllnc the story of his experiences he made no attempt itct tempt to conceal the humorous aspect of the affair. Ho said " : "Deputy Will- 11c lams was not captured , as at first re- ported. When ho saw mo taken he liem stood off from the house and the convicts victs did not molest him. " Masked Men Raid Lodging House. Chicago , Nov. 11.
