In spite of the fact that this has been a
poor year for fruit , southwestern Iowa Is
again to the front with evidence that It la
right nt the head. W. J. Davenport of the
Burlington road yesterday put on exhibition
a barrel of assorted varieties which are as
near perfect as can be In point of quality.
Loot month 108 carloads arrived hero from
Kansas City and Burlington points In this
vicinity , and so tar this month there have
been ICO cars. Sunday morning alone twenty
carloads were received , bound for almost
every state and territory west and north
west of here.
Mr. Davenport Is anxious to see the cus
tom of having fruit exhibits every year
started In Council Bluffs , An association
could bo formed among the fruit groworo of
southwestern Iowa which would be large
enough to attract the attention of buyers all
over the west. The exhibit would bring the
buyers to this city In large numbers , and
the advantage of being represented In the
exhibit would be of sulllclent Importance to
cause the members of the association to hang
together. A flue exhibit could be had every
year when the crops are as good as "they are
thla year , and not only Council Bluffs but
the whole southwestern part of the state get
a great deal of enviable notoriety.

The old , old case ot Beach against Wood
ward was brought up once more In Judge
Macy's court yesterday by means of a. sup
plementary petition by the plaintiff , who
was awarded Judgment some time ago
against the defendants , to have the defend
ants required to come Into court and testify
as to what property they had , The plaintiff
claims that each one has a watch , which , If
sold , would bring In something. The de
fendants , on the other hand , claim that a
watch Is a. part of a man's wearing apparel
and therefore exempt from execution. Alter
the court had heard the decisions on the
point he took the coso under advisement , re
marking as he did so that It seemed to him
as though a watch ought to be considered as
much a part of the wearing apparel as cuff
buttons or other similar articles of Jewelry ,
and he should so decide unless the decisions
should very clearly contradict his view.
This morning the two cases ot Landls and
Fllcklnger against the Omaha Bridge and
Terminal Railway company will be up for
trial. The plaintiffs are suing for damages
by reason of the defendant running Us line
ot track In front of their property on
Eighteenth street , near Avenue B.
The trial of the cases on the criminal calendar -
endar will bo taken up Wednesday.

Mr. Stevens of Omaha , has had his boat ,
the "Carrie , " tied In front of the Rowing
association boat house at Manawa during
the past summer. Itwas the largest and one
of the finest sail boats on the lake. Last
Saturday ho went to the lake and found the
boat missing. He Instituted a search , and ,
after going the lake over , at lust found the
boat tied near Wright's landing , on the
south stele , with the sail neatly folded and
the masts taken down and securely tied to
the keel. It was all ready to be shipped ,
and had Mr. Stevens been a little slower
about finding out what had been done ho
would probably have stood but little show of
ever seeing It again. The job Is supposed lo
have been done by the samp gang that stole
the sails off of tno other sail boats at the
lake last week.

wrath. When the officer had said his piece
she startled the spectators by opening a
volley of Billingsgate that has never been

up by threatening to have her removed , but
she was Irrepressible , and tne profanity and

a blush to overspread even the features of

Ignorance or a desire to bo sensational , In
reporting several new cases of smallpox at
Tabor every day or two. There has been
but seven cases of smallpox or varlolo d , all
told , five of which are now convalescent , al
though yet under strict quarantine. Through
these unreliable reports the towns around
Tabor have established quarantlno ngaliibt
Tabor. Therefore the physicians of Tnbor
have Issued the following statement of facts :

son , who Is Retting- along nicely , mid- the
family Is under strict quarantine. Another
case , n. doubtful one , however , was that of
Samuel Shulllor. who la now convalescent.
Uhe last case to appear , and the most reveie
of the seven cases , was thut of a man who
came to Tabor about three weeks n o from
Nebraska. About ten days after coining to
labor the man was taken down with gen
uine smallpox. He was at once quaran
tined , as also were the persons living In the
same house. He Is now Betting Along as
well as could be expected.
No other persons have shown any Indi

NEW YOnK , Oct. 15. The cloak manufacturers -
facturers have determined to resist the de
mands of the striking cloak makers and to
refuse to make any of the concessions the
workmen demand. It was unanimously
agreed that no manufacturer would make
any concession or compromise with the
strikers without the consent of all. Some
of the speakers tald they would rather go
out at business than accede to the demands
of the strikers.

cloak makers claim that 3,000 of their mem
bers liavo returned to work , under the terms
specified In the Joint agreement formulated
by the strikers and slgnedi by factory owners

ST. PAUL , Oct. IB. A Marquette special
to the Dispatch say ; The accounts ol
Thomas D. Meads. x.-rccelver of the United
States land office hcre > , have been found
short and his bondsmen have been notified
So far the shortage Is $2,000 , but as new
claims appear at Intervals It Impossible ,
without nn Investigation , to tell the total
shortage. The money was paid In during
Mead's Incumbency by homesteadcro when
making homestead entries , final proofs or
commutations , and was not turned over to
tin government or afterwards accounted for.
Consequently homesteaders were unable to
get their receipts or patents and could not
realize ; returns en years ot privation and toll
spent In perfecting their rights to home

tention to the matter. Should his bonds
men make the defalcation good no criminal

slsted of a pa'r ' of boots or shoes , as oc
casion required , the divided skirt and a short
Jacket and a masculine hat. Miss Leper
has had considerable trouble over her radl-
cal notions about dress. She has been
driven from the churches because she per
sisted In wearing the unconventional gar
ments to the services. The story told by

house as usual , In the assault which fol
lowed Miss Leper made a manly fight. She

So far from ( hero being any abatement or
any clear signs of abatement In the recent
uldo prevalence of all manner ot climatic
and c.ttnrrhn ! maladies , there Is no question
but that the past week has been worse than
the preccdltii ; . Drs. Copeland and Shcpard ,
who are perhaps closest to- the people gener
ally , In their professional capacity , have no
hesitation In declaring the maladies referred
to now definitely und decidedly epidemic.
And It Is needles to add that family physi
cians of large practice , professionally fa
miliar with climatic action on the human
system , and personally conversant with the
present situation , confirm the statement as
Nor Is the absence of any alarming pres
ent Increase In the death rate of the city
any evidence to the contrary. The curse of
the maladies now prevalent does not llo in
their Immediate or early fatality. The dan
ger and the horror ot tliem Is In n postponed
fatality In their Inncvltablo liability to be-
coma settled and chronic , with no other
prospect If neglected , than that of a long
period of sitffetlng.
Drs. Copeland and Shepard have had a vast
experience In the diagnosis and handling of
these diseases and their subtle complications ,
nnd their methods reflect Iho pretcnt ad
vanced state of medical science.
