ONAWA. Ia.. April 17. Specla )-The
country south of Mapleton Is In a state of
excitement because of a haunted house
In the community. All sorts of stories s re-
rife and people are very much alarmed. It
has been established with undeniable proof
that the house In question- is the scene of
strange noises and cries. People who have
been In the house when such affairs were
occurring declare that spooks or spirits are
visiting the place. A murder was com
mitted In the house once and neighbors
says that the departed spirit has Just re
turned for revenge. Watching parties have
trapped for the spirit Intruder, but have
been unsuccessful so far and ths noise
still continue. The farm, which Is a val

WEBSTER CITY. Ia.. April n.-(Speclal)
Lost, about one million and a half dollars
The Webster City council haa Juat con

of this nature, so the city council at its
regular silting as a board of review started
out to assist In the search. Tha wail that
will go up next Tueaday when the council
will sit as a board of equalisation will at
test how well the council has suceeded.

EFFORT TO STOP MANY APPEALS
Old Lair Had Provision Hegarded
aa Mark Too Drastic
This to Bo More
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DES MOINES. April 17.-lSpeclal.)-Gov.
ernor Carroll today signed, what Is known,
as the Bwlft bill, fathered In the legisla
ture by the representative from Shelby
county, being a law to penalise a railroad
company at the rata of $50 a day for
failure to obey an order of the railroad
commission. As a matter of fact, the pen
alty for failure to obey under th old law
waa $1,000 to $10,000, but Is was so sever
that the penalty had nevjr been Imposed
by the courts. .
The occasion for the bill waa the fact
that along In the winter the railroads.
Which center In Harlan. Shelby county,
were directed by the railroad commission
to make physical connections, and up to
the present they have not done so. It . I
explained thaV the order gave them only
80 day In which to do the work, and It
was at a seasTTrT-when it could be done to
advantage. But the bill was demanded by
a great many Interest In the belief that It
would put a stop to appeals to the courts
merely for the purpose of delay. It wa
opposed by the railroads on the ground that
It was a measure of drastic character and
no such penalty Is Inflicted elsewhere for
merely resorting to the courts.
Will Have a Bee Inspector.
One of the new bills passed and which
haa Juat been signed by the governor pro
vides for a state bee Inspector with au
thority to destroy bees and hives where
they, are found to be In unhealty condition.
The place pays $3 a day and expenses.
and the governor Is looking about for a
man who Is an expert In catching bee
and diagnosing their ailments. There ha
been but little complaint of any disease
among the bee of the state, but the scien
tists claim that there Is some danger.
Trouble Over Time Clock,
The state officials are having trouble
over installing a time recording system
In the state house. Th legislature Included
In the omnibus appropriation bill $200 for
Installing such a system for the use of
the custodlsn in keeping tab on the watch
man. There are two night watchmen at
the capltol, both war veterana, and while
it la common knowledge that the atate
house ha been left at time with little,
protection, yet they and their frienda have
started a movement to have the council
refuse to Install the time recording sys
tem. They claim It Is an Insult to them aa
old soldier to compel them to make re
ports at different places In the building
while on watch, and that they should be
trusted to make the rounds.
' No Change on Medical Board.
Members of the State Board of Health

To Bnlld County Hospitals.
Tha legislature placed on the statute
books a law which will enable the
counties of the state to erect and main
tain county hospitals. Inasmuch as this
Is about the only way the communities
ran provide for care of the tuberculosis
victims It la probable there will be a
number of theae county hospitals erected.
In this city a volunteer movement ha
maintained a hospital for tuberculosis,
but will be unable longer to do so and
plans are already being made for having
the county start a hospital..

, There are not one hundred thousand pairs of these
trousers on the market, because far fewer than
that number of TRTUMPH TROUSERS are made.
