T3e youthful attorney secured a yer iict in favor of the Irishman charged with murder, on the ground of tem porary insanity, says the Philadelphia Telegraph.

"The $200 you promised if I saved that worthless neck of yours." "Shure, an' did Oi promise that? 01 don't ramimber." "Why, Pat, you promised it me."

Whole No. 86i The Blonder In Iowa On another page will be found an editorial reproduced. from the Omaha World-Herald entitled "The Iowa Blunder." It so fully covers the case that Us reproduction makes it unnecessary for The Commoner to add any extended commont. The democrats of Iowa have blundered, and it is difficult to say who are most to blame the men who engineered the scheme or the men who were duped into believing that a party can fight best when on the run. The mistake made in Ohio a year ago has been repeated in Iowa, and the tac tics employed were quite similar, although the majority against the indorsement of the Kansas City platform was much greater in Ohio than in Iowa, being only 384 to 344 in the latter state. The Iowa platform does not indorse the gold standard, and therein demonstrates the cowardice of those who are not willing to indorse the na tional platform o...

"The Hoosier Schoolmaster," "The End of the World" and "The Mystery of Metropolisvlllo" were hailed with delight, and were in many respects the advance heralds of an American literature that has since become uni versally popular.
