For sometime past it has been
doubted by those who have been
reading events as well as bulletins
that the president's couditiou was so
rose-colored as was given forth by
tho constituted authorities at the
capital. There has seemed to be an
effort to make it appear that the
president was abundantly able to
fulfill the duties of his office; and
perhaps this is sufficient to account
for such a course, as in case of dis
ability the constitution provides
that the vice president shall act as
president, during such disability.
Although we have no knowledge
of precedent in our history, it has
seemed to us all along that the pres
ident's disability was such that the
commaud of the constitution ought
to have been obeyed.
Mrs. Garfield wrote a letter re
cently to a friend in Ohio, in which

ing the president's great appetite

is a great and constant sufferer, and
is at present exceedingly feeble.
He talks very little. His condition
While we wore thinking of these
things, and a possible motive for
deceiving the public as to the pres
ident's actual condition, a telegram
is received from Washington, dated
7a. m., Aug. 10th, saying: "The
President is failing rapidly, and is
not expected to live."

The baby giant of Iowa, whose
homo is in Atlanic, was in Council
Bluffs the other day. The parents of

Missouri Valley, where the child

then go to Minnesota in quest of
cooler weather. The Iowa baby
giaut is 3 years old and weighs 125
pouuds. The baby was born in
Anamosa, this state, and some time
since the parents removed to Atlan
tic. The baby is an intelligent and
handsome looking child, there being
none of those disgusting features of
make-up that characterizes monstros
ities generally. The fat youngster
knows its letters and is capable of
making known all its wants by word
of mouth. Th'o parents are both

It is a waste of time and words to
talk about who will succeed Judge
Maxwell in the Supreme Court. He
will succeed himself and he ought
to. He has labored faithfully aud
brought forth good works. He has
steadily riseu to a position where he
commands the respect aud confi
dence alike of litigants and attor
neys. His re-election is duo to him
and to the people of this slate whom
he has diligently served for the past
nine years. Vast interests public
and private arc concerned in the
make up of the Supreme Court, and
hence as little experimenting as pos
sible should be practiced in electing
its members. Schuyler 2Tcws.
Look out, and you may detect a
counterfeit twenty dollar bill, one of
which was recently received at the
Omaha National Bank, and which

pen, by somo expert penman aud
forger. It is executed in all the
various colored inks used on bank
notes, and even the paper itself is
made to look like bank note paper
by little strokes of the pen. It is a
great curiosity. It was paid to the
bank by a government official, thro'
whose hands it passed without de
tection. A serious accident occurred on
