Letters wcro received yesterday from
prominent men in Den Molncs who nro Inter

to other railroads. There is small hope ol

tnulo has offered bonuses for the location ol

guaranteed to remit tlio taxes for a period o
live years upon the property of nil mnuufac
turers that may come hero. The couucl
that passed this ordinance could not pass an
other that would directly conflict with it
I am a manufacturer , nnd while I do no
claim exemption from taxation , J do content
that you have no right to Interfere with mi
In my business until you repeal the ordl
nanco under which you have arrested mo am
pass another making it an offense to maim

At regular intervals complaints have been
mudo to the pollco of the depredations ol
[ ictty thieves upon fnrmcrs gardeners near
the city. All kinds of property has suffered ,
and nothing scorns to bo too small or- toe
largo to bo appropriated and carried away bj
Last night there were live complaints made
at the pollco station of this class of thieves ,
and the articles stolen varied from chickens
to full wagon loads of hay and corn. Om
farmer tracked a thief who had loaded up t
ton of his hay from his promises nnd haulcc
it to tills cty. ] The information imparted te
tlio pollco enabled them to locate the hay , bul
not the thief to a certainty. The tiny was
found on a vacant lot in the western part o :
the city. .
Another former organized a crowd of hi !
friends and followed a bold thief who hac
driven up to his corn-crib nnd shoveled out i
full wngon load of corn and hauled it away
They trucked him toward Council Bluffs , but
lie entered the city by a roundabout way nnei
they lost his trail near Mynster Springs. Thi
five men hunted through the city until late a
night and then came to the station and re
ported the fact to the police. They ronminei
at the station nil night and took up the trail
again in the morning , determined to fliul tin
thief If possible.
The farmers living near the city nro talk
ing nbout organizing n vigilance committei
and treating the thieves to a dose of old
fashioned justice that proved so effectual ii

a "collection of autographs , " which dis

the signatures to most of tlio passes are
the worst possible specimens of spider's

ol the men sending these passes "take

Their Industry in the ItiiHlncHM of
Fruit Import at Ion.
Whatever the faults ntul drawbacks
of the Italians'in this country maybe ,
they hnvo helped to develop the tnsto of
the Now York public for fruits , especi
ally for the semi-tropical fruits , says thu
Now York Times. Before the advent of
the Italians there wore very few fruit
stands deserving of the iiamo to bo scon
in the streets. Of courbo , there were
the fancy fruit stows along Broadway
where luscious fruits could bo bought ,
but the prices lioi-o , voro generally to
high that onlv the wealthy could in
dulge their tastes in this direction. Tlio
poor cltl/.oii oi' llio clti/on of moderate
menus had to content himself with tlio
apples and pears generally "of a poor
quality and the sticks of windy that
were sold by the corner apple woman ,
who hns now become a rara avis of the
The Italians who first wont into the
fruit stand business generally selected
the choicest kinds of fruits that they
know could bo sold in the localities
whore they established themselves. The
public IOOK kindly to the fruit sold by
Italians ; they gradually extended this
business all over the city , and now the
fault stand trade amounts to hundreds at-
thousands of dollars annually.
The Italians claim , and perhaps justly ,
that they have developed the taste for
grapes , and it is undoubtedly they who
have imported immense quantities from
Mlssina and other parts of Italy. They
linvo also brought ever superior quali
ties of dried llgs , hut only very Tow un-
drlcd figs have been successfully im
ported. The fresh fig is a very delicate
fruit. It is green or black , or of a white
gngo color. When plucked from
the tree the stem exudes a milky sub
stance which is of an irritating nature ,
injurious to the eye , nnd will cause
opthalmia if oven rubbed on. Orientals
love to eat the fresh llg early before
Another fruit that' ' is occasionally
brought over by Italians , but with which
tlio American public is not familiar , is
the pomegranate. The fruit is round
and of the sized of nn orange. The skin
is hard and red , sometimes whitest yellow -
low and red , and when that is silt and
the fruit is pulled open a yellow pulp
containing numerous red or pink Ker
nels is seen. The kernels alone are to
bo caton , ns the yellow pulp has an acrid
taste nnd is unwholesome for food. Tlio
kernels of the fruit consist of a very
juicy pulp , sweet , with n flno aromatic
flavor. Only the swcot qualities are
brought to this country , but there
are also sour and tart pomegranates :
the sour are used by the Orientals for
dressing in salads und for cooking pur
poses , while the tart pomegranates can
bo converted into n delicate , delicious
syrup , very beneficial for invalids. The
pomegranate tree is boautiiul in the
spring. The leaves are then of n deli
cate green , while the thousands of blos
soms uro of a bright , rich scarlet.
Several cxpcaimonta have been made
to introduce the prickly pear or cactus
fruit , but with indifferent success. The
prickly pear like the fresh fig , is best a
few- hours after being plucked , and
while It is still cool. This fruit is oval
in shape , and concave at the top. As
the rose is among flowers , say some
Orientals , so is the prickly pear among
fruit , for both are dilllcult to pluck ,
being protected by thorns and prickles.
The skin of the prickly pear has small
tufts of minute prickles and the concave
at the top is full of them , and woo to the
man who grasps them with the naked
hand before the prickles are rubbed off.
It will take about ono hour's time with
a pair of tweezers to pull the prickles
The cactus tree on which the fruit
grows is oven worse. The leaves nro
from half an inch to an Inch thick , about
a foot in length , and six inches in width ,
and these are covered with prickles anel
thorns , some nearly as long as darning
neeellcs. The tree , in fact , consists of
leaves growing out of each other. Cut
oil a leaf and throw it anywhere on the
ground , and in a few days it will strike
root ; while tiny leaves will grow out of
its sides. As the plant grows higher
the lower leaves grow hard and woody.
The trees grow very close to each other ,
and are often used for pledges. Where
such a hedge is well cultivated no
intruder can got through withoutcutting
his way , nnd that Is not an onsy matter ,
ns the trunks that wpro formerly loaves
are often three foot in circumference.
Early in summer the cactus boars a
pretty light yellow llowor , and before
the llowor has frdod the fruit begins to
sprout beneath it ,
Plucking the prickly pear Is attended
with considerable diflicnlty. The man
who docs this work often puts on a
leather coat and , armed with a long stick ,
to which is attached a thin spike with a
fine point , ho goes in among the trees
thrusts the sphto into the fruit , and with
a skillful twist gets it down.
An Kncrlishman who first saw aprickly
pear , seized it In Ills gloved hand and
thrust it into his mouth. Ills first im
pulse was to shoot the dealer , and. then
lie set up a howl of pain that wns hoard
for n mile. To pool a prickly pear
properly , the fruit is taken in the loft
hand while a light silt is mndo length
wise. The two ends are sliced oil , and
the peel is easily taken off. The fruit is
a mass of delicious pulp and seeds , but
the seeds are not to bo masticated , as
they nro very hard. '

A lively Congo Town.
About the liveliest place in Equatorial
Africa just now Is Mutadl , the starting
point ou the lower Congo ol the Conge
riith'oiul. A thousand men are working
In Muttull , nnd along the river within a
fo\v mlles of that pliu'o , says the Now
York Sun , Missionaries write that It
would surprise any ono to see the num
ber of good houses'that uro going up nt
Miittull , substantially built of stone ,
brick , Iron , and wood. The advent of
the rnllroiul laborers have made things '
exceedingly brisk for the few missiony
nrloH of Ufshop Taylor's station In that /
neighborhood. These missionaries , It Is *
well known , depend mostly upon their
own exertions for support , They
find that they Imvo now a ready
market for everything they can
produce In their gardens , Mr. Tutors
writes to the African News tluit he has
us good a market for his products nt Ma-
tadl as he would have in Now York or
London. The Congo state has given
Mr. Totor a silo upon which to build a
church at Muttull and also a supply of
lumber and other building material for
the cdlllce. Some of thonatlvo laborers
on the railroad nro contributing' money
to support this church , which , it Is ex
pected , will bo entirely self-supporting
from the first. One native subscribed
$20 and others nearly equal amounts t
toward the building of nn iron church , * *
which , as soon ns possible , will take the
place of the toimiorary structure. These
natives were pobubly brought from mis
sion stations further north on the west
coast , and they wish to have the sanio
religious privileges on the Congo they
have been accustomed to at home.
TIIK NATUIIK OF A "COMIC. "
"Men AVlio ( Jnu Make ( lood Ones Kuril
liOtH of Money.
The luto.Tunics S. Goodwin , who wni
run over a few days ago by a train , was
a contributor to litimorous periodicals In
n way which , if not peculiarly his own ,
was ono In which no was easily first ,
snys the New York Sun. Although not
the originator , he was the chief author
of the "comic , " HH the humorous illus- *
trntion with nn explanatory dialogue ,
either overhead or underneath , In
technically termed. The dialogue , even
when underneath , is still called the cap
tion , because originally it was always '
printed ever the Illustration. Tlio
' 'comic" does not require any skill as nn
artist. All that is necessary is to out
line the picture , leaving its elaboration ,
If not entire re-drawing , to a skilled
hand. Mr. Goodwin , although ho was
originally a hank note draughtsman ,
could not draw his figures were stiff
nnd his work generally mechanically
and labored. All ho attempted , there
forewas to make a skeleton of the pictor
ial idea ho intended to convoy. lie some
times cut counterfeit presentments of
men , women , horscf , dogs , or whatever
ho wanted , out of the back numbers of
the publications to which lie contrib
uted , and then grouped thorn to suit the
situation ho wished to depict. lie oc
casionally traced such figures in plaeo
of cutting them out. and in this way
made the Illustratedhulnol > ° f the past
contribute to that of tlio future. Ce > mio
ivus made to produce co'nic. ' The olab-
orator , of course , disguised the figures
so that their identity with those of the
back numbers could not bo rccognlxod.
Mr. Goodwin did not write his dia
logue and then manufacture a picture tof >
match. It was the other way. Ho saw '
n humorous situation in real life , erIn
In Ills mind's eye , nnd then wrote
a dialogue to explain it. After holding
the mirror of humor up to nature , ho
made the word suit the gesture of his
pictorial puppets. This is the prini'lulo
on which the best comics are believed to
be miido , nnd it is the ono which Puck , a
wholesale purchaser of Mr. Goodwin's
work , tenches his imitators to follow. It
is not oven necessary to draw an outlinp
to bo the author of a comic. A descrip
tion of the scene to bo represented will
do. Sometimes , too , as M. Jourdnln , In
Molioro's play , talked prosn . without
knowing it , so a man may bo the author
o a comic without intending to bo.
That is , ho may write a funny
dialogue without realizing its capa
bility of illustration. For such a
contribution lie is not likely to got
more than oO cents , while for n , comic , Seven
oven if the picture bo only outlined" , hty
gets three times as much. $1 Is paid for
a comic in which tlio picture is described
instead of being delineated. For a very
good comic moro is paid. Contributors
of comics , if they are at till proliflcmako
handsome incomes with what seems to
bo little labor. Mr. Goodwin , who con
tributed not only to Judge and Puck , hut
to the Sim Francisco Wasp and other
out-of-town publications , roali/.cd a
Inrco incomes. It was a poor week whoa
ho didn't make $80.

A monument will bo erected at Ilelvol-
