were decidedly unique. His purpose was to

Herman Parr was acquitted by the jury In
the district court at Glenwood at a late
hour Saturday night , after being out for six
hours. Parr's case has been the subject of
much Interest ever slnco the tragedy at the
crossing of the motor line and the Burling
ton railway about a year ago , In which E.
F. Holnmn met his death. Parr's arrest In
the first place was considered by many as
largely duo to the high state of feeling In
the public mind at that time against the
motor company and every one connected with
It , and the fact of hh being granted a
change of venue to Glenwood was the result
of the same state of affairs. The verdict
meets with almost universal approval ,

Two Innocent looking youths came Into
town from tome place In the country yester
day for a Sunday visit In the metrcpolU.
Their hair was somewhat afflicted with hay
seed , but In their brief stsy they had man
aged to accumulate thirst that was truly
metropolitan. They had heard how every
saloon In the city wai hermetically sealed
on Sunday , and were prepared to undergo
any amount of red tape that might bo hang
ing between them and the smell of a
schooner of lager. They accordingly tip-
Iced up to a geiitlenuit who happened to be
standing In front of a Peart street joint and
asked him to put them on to the combination.
"Go to that front door and tap It twice
this way , " said he , "and then go around to
that side door there very carefully and tap
twice again. Then stand there for a couple
tt minutes nnd they'll come and let you In ,
If they think you're all right. "
Th two young men knocked at the front
door , and then edged their way around to
the aide door with the look of a couple of
fellows who had been officiating at a sheep
stealing soiree. They were Just about to
"tap twice an-1 wait a couple of minutes , "
when jome one who knew the ropes a little
better than they walked right In past them.
They followed suit , and by the time the
couple Of minutes had elapsed they had put
themselves on the outside of the longed for
lager. They probably know more about the
beauties cf mulct liquor laws now than they
did awhile ago.

A long procession , gay with Hags , em
broidered banners , flowers and handsome uni
forms , formed at Plvonka's hall on Twenty-
fourth street yesterday afternoon at 2 o'clock.
The occasion was the celebration of the for
tieth anniversary of the organization of the
Bohemian Slavonic Benevolent society In
America. The members of the society of
this city and Omaha headed the procession ,
followed by the Bohemian Foresters of both
cities , the Bohemian gymnastic societies and
The procession marched to Brown park
and at Franek's new hall the exercises of
the day began. The Vlastlmll Singing so
ciety opened the program with a native song.
Mr. John Berka made a short Impromptu
speech , which was followed by the oration
of the day by Mr. John Roslcky , the editor
of the Pokrok Zapadu. He spoke briefly of
the history of the society , how It was or
ganized soon after the emigration of his
people began to this country , so that they
might keep alive the remembrance of their
old home , although they had adopted a new
land. He spoke of the rapid Increase In
the number of the societies during the last
few years , there now being 202 societies , with
a membership of 12,000.
There are twenty-four societies In thlb
state , making It the next to the banner state ,
Illinois having a few more. Singing by the
Vlastlmll society brought the exercises to a
close. After the celebration a grand ball
was given at the hall , where Immense crowds
congregated and enjoyed themselves until a
Lively IJoat Fight.
Ike Brayton and Harry Jacobs , commission
men at the stock yards , each has a goat
which he has been telling could "lick" any
thing that came along. The other fellows
about the exchange building became tired
of hearing Brayton and Jacobs bltift each
other on propositions of a goat light , so ar
rangements were made Friday afternoon
whereby the two "billy boys" could come
together. All the horses were ordered off
the quarter-mile track at the yards and the
proprietors of the two goats were Instructed
to bring on their scrappers. Jim Jones said
he would go behind Brayton's goat and Ed
Cullen consented to second Jacob's buck.
Everything was made ready and about 200
stock men surrounded the circle. Council
man Walters was selected as referee and
time was called. The animals were allowed
to fight about thirty minutes and It was the
hottest contest that has taken place at the
yards for a long time. Between rounds
Jones and Cullen bathed the whiskers of
their favorites , and , although considerable
money was placed , the match was declared
a draw. It Is not unlikely that a finish
match will take place soon , as each owner
Is willing to bet that his buck can win.

A fire alarm was turned In from near the
Rock Island depot In Albright yesterday
afternoon about 3 o'clock. The fire was found
to be In some box cars. They were such a
distance from the fire hydrant that over l.COO
feet of hose had to be laid before they could
be reached nnd the firemen had n hard job
to get the fire out. Three cars were totally
consumed and three others were badly
scorched , The fire caught from some straw
and refuse near the track , supposed to have
been lighted by some tramps. The damage
amounted to about $1,800.

Anamosa the coming week will be tried one
of the most Interesting cases which has ever
engaged the attention of the court of Jones
county , the case of the state against Emmet
Seymour for the murder of George P. Fl-
. Shortly after the
fleld , his father-in-law.
marriage of Seymour to Klflelil's daughter
the old gentleman was found ono evening
lying on the railroad tracks near his home
In an unconscious condition ; He had been
struck on the head by some blunt Instrument
and died without regaining consciousness.
A few months later Seymour was discovered
In the act of stealing lumber after night.
Upon further Investigation It was found he
had been the chief actor In a long series of
petty stealing which had long perplexed
Anamosa business men. The discovery of
these crimes and the fact that the stolen
property was concealed about Seymour's
house caused people to think that the here
tofore unsusplcloned man had been the
cause of Flfleld's death , the supposition
being that Klfleld had discovered Seymour's
crime and threatened his exposure. Sey
mour was tried for various thefts and sent
to the pen for three years. That sentence
havng | been served he Is- now to be tried
for murder. Some sensational testimony Is
promised and the case will at all events be
an exceedingly Interesting one.

At 4 o'clock yesterday morning Joseph
Plrchncll , 1331 South Seventeenth street ,
narrowly escaped being burned to death.
The house Is a two-story one , and In the
basement the cooking Is done. It has been
the luiblt of the family to leave the lamp
burning there during the night , as Mr.
Plichnelt Is employed at the smelters and
has to leave home early In the morning.
He got up nt t o'clock , and when he went
to the basement he found the oil had burned
out In the night. Ho nt once started to
refill the lamp , but In doing so he got the
wrong can , and Instead of filling It with
coal oil ho filled It with gasoline. Ho did
not notice his mistake till ho attempted
to light U. Suddenly the family were aroused
from their slumbers by Plrchnell's screams.
They \vcnt to the basement to find him
wrappeil In flames. One of the first to ar
rive was his 10-year-old daughter. Ho was
then trying to quench the lire on his clothes
with water. The girl seized a bed quilt and
wrapped It about him , smothering the fire.
Plrchnell's Injuries rendered him uncon
scious. His hands were badly burned , iin.l
ono foot Is so seriously Injured that ho
may bo a cripple for life.
The damage to furniture was slight.
